Good Stuff, but Terrible Taste is a new World Quest in Genshin Impact's Fontaine region. It is divided into six parts consisting of different types of puzzles. To trigger this series, you must find paint canvases and solve nearby puzzles. You can start them in any order, but do note that the sixth part will appear only after solving the other five.

Solving a puzzle will spawn an Exquisite Chest, and an NPC Salsa will appear to start the next stage of the quest. Completing the entire Good Stuff, but Terrible Taste quest line will reward you with 155 Primogems from chests, achievements, and completing the puzzles.

This guide will showcase the locations of all six puzzles and also provide their solutions.

The first part of this Genshin Impact quest is located on the west of Elynas. You will find three Water Volume Detection Crystals, of which only two can be moved. You must move both to the middle and activate all of them by applying Hydro using the Hydrogranas nearby. This will spawn an Exquisite Chest; open it, and Salsa will appear.

The third paint canvas is located in the center of Elynas near the Statue of The Seven. It is recommended to use a Bow character to solve this. Hit the Pneumousia crystal to summon the blue ramp. Some parts of the walking platform will appear and disappear depending on the alignment of the crystal.

To solve the puzzle, climb the ramp and collect the Hydro particles. Hit the lantern using your Bow character each time you reach the end of the ramp. This will change its alignment and summon new walking platforms. Open the chest and talk to Salsa.
