Update 2.0 Release Date & Patch Notes
To avoid taking damage from Balethunder, summon an Electrogranum from Thunder Sakura Boughs! As long as you're with an Electrogranum, you won't lose HP. Keep track of the time though, because Electrograna disappear after a while!
Thunderwood also wards off Balethunder damage. If you can't get any Electrograna, you should approach the Thunderwood!
Balethunder is present in some areas during the Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual World Quest in Narukami Island. You will often need to solve the Torii puzzles while Balethunder is active, so be sure to get Electrogranas from time to time.
Balethunder will disappear in Mt. Yougou after completing the questline, but the underground area off the north-east coast of Narukami Island will still have Balethunder.
Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual Guide
The Mikage Furnace in Tatarasuna, Kannazuka has affected the surrounding area with Balethunder. To get rid of the Balethunder in this area, you will need to complete the Tatara Tales World Quest chain.
The Balethunder in Musoujin Gorge in Yashiori Island is said to be the result of the Electro Archon slashing the almighty Orobashi with the Musou no Hitotachi.
As a result, the area beneath the Gorge including the waters are infested with residual Electro energy, making it especially difficult to explore. Balethunder cannot be removed in this area, as such, you need to get Electrogranas in time.
Balethunder covers majority of the area in Seirai Island. Because of this, it is recommended to finish the Seirai Stormchasers World Quest first before exploring. After completing each quests, the Balethunder will slowly recede.
All Seirai Stormchasers Quests
