Immune to Dendro

Elemental Immunity Recommended Elements

Just like the other Hypostases, the Dendro Hypostasis is immune to its own element. The best characters to use for the Dendro Hypostasis are Pyro and Electro for Burning and Quicken reactions respectively.

It is still important to bring a Dendro character to activate Restorative Piths in its second phase.

Bring Pyro, Dendro, and Electro

We recommend using a character like Yoimiya or any other Pyro DPS as they can deal Burning DMG to the Hypostasis and can counter certain attacks with Pyro.

Dendro and Electro characters are also needed to activate Restorative Piths which will finish off the Dendro Hypostasis. Bow characters like Fischl and Collei can use Aimed Shots to activate Piths a lot faster.

Can you Beat the Dendro Hypostasis Without Dendro?

Possible by using Bloom

While extremely tedious, it is possible to beat the Dendro Hypostasis without using a Dendro character. You can do so by using a Hydro character to trigger Bloom reactions and use Dendro Cores to activate the Restorative Piths.

Characters like Kazuha or Sucrose help in bringing the Dendro Cores closer to the Piths.

How to Beat the Dendro Hypostasis

How to Defeat the Dendro Hypostasis

  1. Dodge its attacks when its core is hidden.
  2. Take advantage of the moments in between attack cooldowns to deal DMG to its exposed core.
  3. Once it's almost defeated, it will release Restorative Piths in an attempt to revive itself. It has similar properties to Tri-Lakshana Creatures.
  4. Use Dendro then Electro on all three Restorative Piths to defeat the Dendro Hypostasis!

Weaknesses are Electro and Pyro

Genshin - Use Pyro to Inflict Burning
The Dendro Hypostasis is weak to Electro and Pyro, as the amplifying powers of Aggravate and Burning is easy to achieve with its semi-permanent Dendro status. You can also combine Burning with Electro to inflict Overloaded to deal even more damage to its core!

Elemental Reactions Guide

Hit the Piths with Dendro and Electro

Genshin - Hit the Piths with Dendro and Electro
Once you've depleted the Dendro Hypostasis' HP, it will release three Restorative Piths. Initially, these piths are inactive but it follows the properties of the Tri-Lakshana Creatures.

You need to ''cleanse'' them with Dendro then speed up the cleansing process with Electro!

Green Meter Indicates the Cleansing Progress

Genshin - Green Meter Indicates the Cleansing Progress
After you hit any of the piths with Dendro a meter will appear below the boss' HP. This indicates the rate at which the cleansing progresses. You need to hit all three piths with a Dendro Attack and hit at least two piths with an Electro attack!

Dendro Hypostasis Attack Patterns

Dendro Projectile Attack

The Dendro Hypostasis will curl into a circular structure, then spew masses of Dendro within a certain AoE. You can avoid this by dodging out of the way once it starts curling into a ball.

It will then enter a cooldown where you can dish out damage on it for a short period of time!

Whip Attack

The boss will gather its shell around it to create a whip to strike at your character! Dodge its attacks as the whip falls on the ground, or simply distance yourself from it within the arena.

After this attack, it will also enter a short cooldown where you can damage it!

Dendro Plunging Attack

The Dendro Hypostasis will restructure its shell into a ball to strike the ground three times and explode once it lands a third time. You can avoid this by looking out for the green indicator on the ground, which will mark where it will land!

You can use Pyro to destroy the ball form right away and be able to deal damage to the Dendro Hypostasis a lot sooner!

Dendro Vine Attack

The boss will create three vines on the ground to strike in your area. It will leave the core vulnerable, so you only need to dodge the vines then strike the core!

AoE Vine Cage Attack

Ways to Deal with this Attack
1 Stay near the core and attack it.
2 Escape towards the edge of the arena

The Dendro Hypostasis will release large AoE vines that will cover the entire arena, then close in the vines until it reaches the center to explode. There are two ways to deal with this, either avoid this or attack the core but risk getting caught up in the explosion at the end!

To escape successfully, watch out for when the boss will go back to the center then release a thin green circle. This indicates the start of the AoE Vine Cage!

Genshin - Nahida ImageGenshin - Kaveh ImageGenshin - Yaoyao Image

The boss drops the Quelled Creeper ascension material, which is used by Nahida, Yaoyao, and Kaveh. They need a total of 46 Quelled Creepers each to reach the final ascension level!

You can get 2-3 Quelled Creepers every time you defeat the Dendro Hypostasis. The boss drops two of them more consistently, this means you need to beat the Dendro Hypostasis 23 times at most!
