Adventurer Handbook Description
Various bizarrely-shaped machines that have taken different forms and functions as an adaption to different goals.

Legend has it that they were war machines left behind by a nation that has now been destroyed. Leaving its hard armor and powerful abilities aside, some believe that the design of these ruin machines has greater value in the study of biomimesis than the more common Ruin Guards.

How to Beat Ruin Scouts

Genshin - Ruin Scout

Use Shield Characters!

Ruin Sentinels are usually grouped in twos or more, making it harder to dodge all their attacks. Having a shield would make defeating these monsters easier, although it is not as necessary when facing a lone Ruin Sentinel.

Hitting its weakpoint will also knock it down for some time, making it vulnerable.

Dodge its Charge Attack

Genshin - Ruin Scout - Charge
Ruin Scouts will turn its body horizontally until the top of its head is pointing towards you. It will pause for a few seconds during which you can dodge just before it charges at your character.

Beware of its Spin Attack

Genshin - Ruin Scout - Spin
Ruin Scouts also has an attack characterized by spinning its body, dealing damage within a small AoE.

Avoid Energy Balls

Genshin - Ruin Scout - Energy
They also attack by compressing their bodies and leaving small golden balls of energy that deals damage when touched. When more than two of these balls of energy are present, they will connect with each other and deal damage to your character if you pass by the connection.

It's best to avoid these attacks by keeping your distance.
