In the Golden Slumber World Quest, players will come across a red book known as the “Scarlet Sand Slate” while exploring the ruins of King Deshret. However, once you try to access these devices, a message will appear, stating that you don’t have “Special Clearance” to enter. Fortunately, players can obtain Special Clearance by progressing further into the Golden Slumber storyline.

After you reach a specific point in this mission of Genshin Impact, Tirzad will give you the clearance to open these entryways. In addition, you’ll notice that some of these books will now have a blue color, indicating that these mechanisms are available to activate.

As time progresses, players will run into other puzzles that forbid them from gaining access to these devices. For example, you’ll need to interact with the Forged Primal Lights and use them with a nearby mechanism (the blue item will follow you until you place it on the structure).

Then, players will have to link these devices together by rotating them, resulting in an illuminated blue line that will unlock the Scarlet Sand Slate:

You’ll increase your Special Clearance levels as you continue with the Golden Slumber World Quest of Genshin Impact. But keep in mind that there could be a few enemies nearby after you open the doorway.
