Bands of Cypher Game I: The Guardian Tribe Puzzle
The Bands of Cypher Portal I plays a crucial role in the game. The better you are at balancing the Bands of Cypher, the better your chances of discovering a Yumi. The Bands of Cypher operate on a simple principle of finding the exact balance within the 5 common elements between our world and the world of Yumies - the precise balance of Fire, Water, Nature, Earth and Metal.

Puzzle Objective
Balance the core by adjusting the elements on the bands.
Each band has a WEIGHT, largest band is the heaviest, smallest inner band is the lightest.
Each element has a WEIGHT, starting with FIRE as the LIGHTEST:
Fire -> Water -> Nature -> Earth -> Metal

How to Solve the Puzzle

  1. Select FIRE on all bands.
  2. Select METAL on the largest band (Band A)
    • If the core is YELLOW (it is too heavy) then choose the next lighter element EARTH. Keep selecting the next lightest element (NATURE, WATER, then FIRE) until the core turns BLUE.
  3. Select METAL on the next largest band (Band B)
    • Follow the same step (2) until the core turns BLUE.
  4. Select METAL on the third largest band (Band C)
    • Follow the same step (2) until the core turns BLUE.
  5. Select METAL on the innermost band (Band D)
    • Follow the same step (2) until the core turns BLUE.

\o/ A portal will open and a Yumi will appear! \o/
NOTE: Solving the puzzle on Normal mode takes 1 charge in your Game Portal I.

NOW You have 2 Choices:
CHOICE #1: Solve the puzzle to find another Guardian Yumi (repeat the steps above)
CHOICE #2: Transcode your current Yumi to find more Guardian Yumies with similar traits. (Follow the steps in the "Transcoding a Yumi" section below)

Transcoding a Yumi: Overview
When a Yumi comes through the portal, they have 0% Nether. Yumies need to gain 100% Nether inside a crystal so they can Transcode.
BONUS: You can click BOOST in the crystal menu to INSTANTLY get 100% Nether!

"Transcoding" and what it does:

  • Yumi transcoding will find another Yumi based on the similarities of their genetic traits.
  • Transcoding has 100% chance to find another Yumi.

  1. Rez the Crystal
  2. Click the crystal and choose "Open Nether"
  3. Long-click (click and hold) on the Yumi and choose "Netherform"
    • The Yumi will then go into the crystal and start gaining Nether
    • Once the Yumi has gained 100% Nether you are ready to Transcode!
      • TIP: Transcoding is the best way to get other Yumies with similar traits, helpful for completing your discovery chart and achievements.
  4. Click the crystal that has the Yumi inside at 100% Nether and choose "Elemental"
    • Yumi has now transformed from the crystal back to Elemental form.
  5. Click the Game Portal 1 and choose "Transcode". The core will turn green as it waits for the Yumi’s interaction.
  6. Long-click (click and hold) on the Yumi and choose "Transcode". NOTE: Yumi must be within 10 meters of the portal.
  7. Solve the puzzle and a second Yumi will come through the portal.
    • NOTE: Transcoding process takes 20-22 charges in your Game Portal I

Advantages to Transcoding
  • Helps you advance in the game faster
  • More achievement points
  • Find Yumies with similar genetic traits
