Geo Hypostasis
Required Resin 40
Adventurer Handbook Description
Code name: Gimel. A high-purity Geo entity. Elemental hypostases are ultra-compact structures with a high mass. Concentrated elemental energy forms a solid shell around the core of the hypostasis, leaving only the core reactive to elemental stimuli. The glyphic pattern on the shell remains an unexplained mystery to this day.

How to Beat the Geo Hypostasis

Geo Hypostasis Video Walkthrough

Attack with a Claymore

Genshin - How to Beat Geo Hypostasis 1

Attacking with any other weapon will not deal much damage on the rock pillars. For beginners, it is highly recommended that you use Noelle while the Geo Hypostasis is invulnerable.

Noelle will allow you to protect yourself from its attacks using your elemental skill and since Noelle is using a claymore weapon, you can break the rock pillars easier.

Find an Opportunity to Attack

Genshin - How to Beat Geo Hypostasis 2

The Geo Hypostasis is invulnerable when the yellow cubes are present around its body, and harder to hit when on top of its geo pillars. Wait for it to appear in its vulnerable state with its core exposed before you attack!

Break the Rock Pillars

Genshin - How to Beat Geo Hypostasis 3

If you manage to break the rock pillars while the Geo Hypostasis is on top of it, this will stagger the Geo Hypostasis and make it vulnerable, giving you an opportunity to attack with Elemental Bursts and Skills.

Low Health Triggers Three Pillars

Genshin - How to Beat Geo Hypostasis 4

Once you have dealt enough damage to the Geo Hypostasis, it will summon three rock pillars in the center of the arena. Focus on destroying these immediately once you enter this phase to defeat the Geo Hypostasis completely.

Failing to destroy these pillars will recover some of the Geo Hypostasis' health.

Turns out theres a way to beat geo hypostasis without breaking the pillar (except the revival ones). You just have to be fast enough to do it. I found the tutorial on youtube here:
