Perpetual Mechanical Array Location

Located in Narukami Island

Location Narukami Island, Inazuma

The Perpetual Mechanical Array is located in Narukami Island, north of Araumi. Use the nearest Teleport Waypoint from its location, or teleport by the Empty Boat of Thousand Gates domain and head left.

How to Beat the Perpetual Mechanical Array

Whittle Down its HP

The Perpetual Mechanical Array will summon four Ruin Machines—of which one is only targetable—under two conditions: first when the battle is dragged long enough, or second, when you whittle down more than half of its HP.

To quickly finish the Perpetual Mechanical Array boss, make sure to reduce its health bar more than half until it summons the four Ruin Machines. Once you've defeated the marked Ruin Machine, use your burst immediately to completely defeat it.

Perpetual Mechanical Array Attack Patterns

Laser Attack

A long-ranged laser will shoot out of the Mechanical Array and follow characters. Keep dashing to completely avoid this Laser Attack!

Laser Explosion

The Perpetual Mechanical Array locks in on a target and shoots a powerful laser at their exact location. Use the short period between the target lock and the attack to dodge out of the attack's AoE!

Machine Summon

The Perpetual Mechanical array summons a Ruin Crusher, Ruin Destroyer, Ruin Defender, and Ruin Scout to fight you while the Mechanical Array itself stays dormant. Group the machines together and unleash a powerful AoE attack to damage them all at once!

Rocket Attack

The Perpetual Mechanical Array turns into a rocket and slams down onto a player. The attack's AoE is shown before the Mechanical Array hits the ground, so dodge out of it at the last minute!

Cube Attack

The Perpetual Mechanical Array turns into a cube and rushes towards the player. Keep your distance and dash out of the attack AoE to avoid getting stomped on!

Spinning Attack

The Perpetual Mechanical Array begins spinning and thrusts itself towards players. The attack's range is small, so shield up and hit it during this attack pattern!

Sword Attack

The Perpetual Mechanical Array takes the shape of a sword and swings itself at a player. The swing goes downward, so dashing to the side at the right time will easily let you avoid the attack!

So I found myself there accidentally after following some ziplines up into the sky and touched the sphere. Didn't know what I was in for but defeated it with Zhongli, now I'm stuck below a barrier I don't know how to turn off from below, or haven't found it yet.
