How to Beat the Ruin Serpent

Clear Out Oozing Concretions

Genshin - Ruin Serpent - Burrowing and Oozing Concentration
The Ruin Serpent will burrow and create fields of Dark Mud and Oozing Concretions around the arena.

Use your Lumenstone Adjuvant to clear the Oozing Concretions from the main bulb. Doing this will immediately dispel the Dark Mud around it and will paralyze the Ruin Serpent for a short period.

Watch Out for the Siphoning Attack

Genshin - Ruin Serpent - Spin Siphon
From the Liyue Diaries Vol. 3, the Ruin Serpent will sometimes spin around and siphon energy. Prevent this from presumably absorbing the Oozing Concentration around it with your Lumenstone Adjuvant!

How to Clear Oozing Concretions

Get Lumen Energy from Geo Crystals

Genshin - Ruin Serpent - Energy Crystal
When the Ruin Serpent generates crystals in the arena, you can use Geo characters to destroy it and create Lumen energy! You need the Lumen energy to use your Lumenstone Adjuvant and destroy the Oozing Concretion.

It's yet to be known if it's used for another important mechanic, but we'll update this section once the info has been released!

Avoid the Sweeping Attack

Genshin - Ruin Serpent - Sweep Attack
When the Ruin Serpent readies itself and smashes down the ground. Afterward, it'll do a sweeping attack that glides left and right. It seems to be a pretty hard to dodge mechanic, so either take your distance or bring a character that can shield you!

Characters that Can Shield You

You can also use Geo to create Crystallized shields! In which case, Gorou is good for this reaction, as he can attract crystals when his Elemental Burst is up.
