Version 1.4 Release Date & Patch Notes
|Enkanmoiya Abyss Herald Locations|
|Note: The numbers indicate how many Abyss Heralds can be found in each location.|
Abyss Heralds were added as a new Open World Elite Enemy in update 2.4 of Genshin Impact. They drop the same character level-up materials as Abyss Mages
The Abyss Herald is also commonly found in the different floors of the Spiral Abyss. It will usually be accompanied by other enemies.
As much as possible, try to avoid getting hit by the Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents, as some of his attacks increase the CD of your character's skill if they are currently on cooldown. You can also use shields to avoid getting hit without dodging.
You can Freeze the Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents to render them immobile for a few seconds. The Abyss Herald utilizes the Hydro Element, however in order to freeze the Abyss Herald, you will need a Hydro character for the Freeze reaction to work when applying Cryo.
When the Abyss Herald activates its shield, it also applies Hydro to itself, so you can freeze them as much as you can.
The Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents will be able generate a shield when you fight him for the second time onwards. The shield activates when its HP gets low. Aside from Cryo characters, you can also bring an Electro Character to break the shield much faster.
We recommend bringing at least one Cryo character and one Hydro character before taking on the Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents, as it is susceptible to Freeze. Pyro and Electro characters are also viable in dealing damage and breaking shields respectively.
|Around 75% HP||Abyss Mages appear. (Only in Round 3 of We Will Be Reunited)|
|Around 50% HP||Abyss Herald uses more attacks.|
|Around 25% HP||Abyss Herald creates a Hydro Shield.|
This is the moveset of the Abyss Herald, which makes use of its Hydro Sword attacks to deal high DMG.
|Attack Patterns||How to Dodge|
|The Abyss Herald launches himself forward with a vertical spin move. As soon as the Abyss Herald extends both swords, dodge to either side.|
3 Hit Combo
|The Abyss Herald unleashes a 3-hit melee combo. This can easily be dodged by moving back or to the side.|
|The Abyss Herald launches a quick ranged slash. This can be dodged quickly.|
|Very similar to the normal quick slash move, however this time each slash shoots out a hydro shockwave that can knock you down. Dodge to either side of the Abyss Herald's swings to avoid the shockwave.|
Cross Slash Shockwave
|The Abyss Herald crosses his swords and sends out a large cross shaped shockwave. When the Abyss Herald raises both swords, move far to one side.|
Sword Flurry AoE
|The Abyss Herald swings wildly finishing with a large AoE attack. Be careful not to get caught in the flurry of swings, as it will knock you down and deal high DMG.|
Exclusive to the 3rd Round of the Archon Quest;
We Will Be Reunited, two Abyss Mages appear to fight alongside the Abyss Herald when the Abyss Herald's HP falls around 75%.
Focus on taking out the Abyss Mages first to make the battlefield less annoying to deal with.
