About Dragonspine


Dragonspine is a new region that is added in the 1.2 Update. This is the first new region that has been introduced in the game after Mondstadt and Liyue.

How to Unlock Dragonspine

You can enter Dragonspine without needing to start Albedo's Story Quest, Princeps Cretaceus, which means you can explore it freely as soon as you're ready!

  • Elemental skill and burst help counter Cryo enemies effectively
  • Amber's bow helps deal ranged Pyro DMG.
  • Bennett's Burst can help other characters recover.
  • Xiangling's abilities take out multiple enemies and light up places of warmth.
  • Dragonspine is an icy mountainous environment filled with Cryo enemies that aim to freeze you as much as possible.

    Klee Vaporize

    Be sure to have at least one Pyro Character in your line-up, as Melt and Overload effects are key to winning fights more effectively.

    Pyro characters are also useful for lighting up torches and bonfires to recvoer from the Sheer Cold Effect.

    How to Unlock Statue of the Seven

    Dragonspine only has one Statue of the Seven, which reveals all of the major locations in the map. Here's how you can unlock it:

    Get the Scarlet Quartz Near the Statue

    To break the ice surrounding the statue, you need to get a piece of Scarlet Quartz nearby to break the protective barrier.

    Hit the Ice and Unlock!

    Once you have the Scarlet Quartz piece, all you need to do is to strike the ice and you can activate the Statue!

    Unlocking the statue also gives you the Contienental Explorer: Dragonspine achievement!

    Subzero Climate (Sheer Cold Effect)

    Cold Gauge
    Once this gauge goes up, your health goes down!

    Unlike other regions in the map, exploring Dragonspine will give your characters the Sheer Cold status. Here's what it will do:

    • The Sheer Cold status will accumulate rapidly in Subzero Climate.
    • Characters will quickly lose HP once the Sheer Cold Meter reaches its limit.
    • Some gadgets will be unsuable in this climate.
    • Certain actions and environments will increase the rate at which Sheer Cold accumulates

    Keep yourself warm!

    Heat Generating Node
    Stay toasty by lighting fires, finding Seelie and activating these nodes

    Be sure to keep warm while exploring the harsh cold by going to sources of warmth! This will help slow down the Sheer Cold effect, and allow you to explore much longer.

    Raising the Frostbearing Tree to level 4 will reward you with Warming Bottle Crafting Blueprints. The Warming Bottle can be used to reduce the cold gauge back to zero!

    Key Locations

    Similar to Mondstadt and Liyue, Dragonspine will have its own set of Domains, Travel Waypoints, and other important locations. Here are some of the locations present in the region:

    New Dragonspine Domains

    Peak of Vindagnyr

    Domain Banner.jpg

    From the official information, it seems like only one new domain will be added, the Peak of Vindagnyr Domain. In it you can find the two new Artifact sets, the Heart of Depth and the Blizzard Strayer sets. To unlock it, you need to unseal the area around it by solving various puzzles around Dragonspine or follow the quest In the Mountains.

    New Artifact Set: Heart of Depth

    Set Set Bonus
    Heart of Depth Set IconHeart of Depth 2-Piece: Hydro DMG Bonus +15%
    4-Piece: After using Elemental Skill, increases Normal Attack and Charged Attack DMG by 50% for 15s.

    New Artifact Set: Blizzard Strayer

    Set Set Bonus
    Blizzard Strayer Set IconBlizzard Strayer 2-Piece: Cryo DMG Bonus +15%
    4-Piece: When a character attacks an enemy affected by Cryo, their CRIT Rate is increased by 20%. If the enemy is Frozen, CRIT Rate is increased by an additional 20%.

    Peak of Vindagnyr features Sheer Cold

    The domain will apparently have platforms that change between Subzero and Warm statuses, a new gimmick you have to watch out for as you attempt the challenge.

    New Dragonspine Enemies

    Along with being a new region, Dragonspine will also introduce new Cryo-based enemies that will definitely add a new challenge. Cryo Element versions of familiar enemies have been added such as Cryo Samachurls, Cryo Cicin Mages, and Ice Shieldwall Mitchurls.

    Dragonspine is another location to collect treasure chests filled with Mora and materials. It seems like you won't be able to use Treasure Compasses in Dragonspine, so check back after 1.2 goes live for a treasure chest map!

        Could be a bug. Try seeing if you have any other incomplete one-time domains in Liyue and Monsdadt. Also check for incomplete archon quests.
