What is Spiral Abyss?

Set of Challenges to Clear

Genshin Impact_20201009110414.jpg

Spiral Abyss is similar to a Domain but instead you must clear 3 challenges per Floor. There are 8 floors in total and you can earn various rewards for completing the clear requirements.

Build Your Party Based on Ley Line Disorders

Genshin Impact_20201009110122.jpg

Each floor has a 75% damage buff or debuff Ley Line Disorder so you should prepare your party accordingly.

Choose Your Benediction of the Abyss

Genshin Impact_20201009110148.jpg

At the beginning of each Chamber you will be able to choose one of 3 buffs. This will persist through the rest of the Chamber so choose wisely.

Restrictions You Should Know About

Things You Can't Do
  • No Co-Op
  • Cannot use items
  • Cannot change party members mid floor
  • Cannot change weapons or artifacts
  • No character growth related actions allowed

As you can't use items or change up your party mid floor, make sure your party is fully healed and prepared before challenging Spiral Abyss. Also, if you leave the designated area it is an automatic failure so be warned.

▼No Co-Op

In Spiral Abyss you are unable to challenge Chambers in Co-Op with friends. If you happen to be in Co-Op mode, however, you can still challenge it alone.

Benefits of Doing Spiral Abyss

  • Level and Ascend Characters
  • Level and Ascend Weapons
  • Level Artifacts

▼Level Characters and Weapons

As most rewards are for leveling and ascension, you will want to attempt Spiral Abyss' challenges.

▼Understand Elemental Reactions

As long as your understanding of how Elemental Reactions work is up to snuff getting through each Floor should be no problem at all. Be aware of each party member's elements and their skill cooldown times to keep up the hurt.

▼Level Up Artifacts

You'll want to level up your artifacts to increase your stats as well. Sets like Berserker, Martial Artist, and The Exile are good for increasing your damage output.
