How to Beat the Spiral Abyss
The Spiral Abyss is a challenge for even the most veteran players. It’s one thing to do aside from the daily and main quests in Genshin Impact. However, people don’t usually climb the Abyss because it intimidates them.
Aside from being a unique Domain, you can only unlock the Abyss at Character Level 20. You can access it through a wormhole or portal in the sky near Cape Oath. It consists of two parts, namely the Corridor and the Moon Spire.
The Corridor consists of floors 1-8, while the Moon Spire consists of floors 9-12. Different monsters and challenges make up each floor with varying twists. Most players compare the Spiral Abyss to the Bloody Palace in the Devil May Cry series.
After all, it is a tower full of encounters for you to beat to get rewards. Genshin Impact veterans will tell you that the Abyss changes often. It also gives the veteran players a venue to test out their strongest characters now and then.
So, how do you beat this seemingly daunting dungeon? Well, you came to the right place. Here are a few tips on how to beat the Spiral Abyss.
Level Up Your Characters
The Abyss often makes you use two teams for the first and second phases. This rule is also consistent with the Moon Spire section. We recommend leveling up a total of eight characters to survive.
Each team can only have four members. So, you’ll need to pick out the characters to fill these roles: DPS, Sub-DPS, Healer/Shields, and Battery. The DPS and Sub-DPS are your main damage dealers. You should always level them up first before entering the Spiral Abyss.
Your Healer/Shields and Battery characters support the DPS. They are also the characters that can help you last longer during difficult situations inside the Abyss. However, you can settle for one Shield Character for each team.
Bring a Shield Character to the Spiral Abyss
In Genshin Impact, shield characters are a must. A well-timed elemental ability can block even the most overpowered monster. Fan favorites for the Spiral Abyss include Diona, Xinyan, and Zhongli. These characters also help set your elemental reactions to give your more opportunities to deal damage.
However, you should level up more than one shield character to survive the Abyss. Some monsters completely ignore your shield. It also leads us to the next topic.
Scout Your Enemies Before Entering
Each floor or chamber has different enemies that you can counter. It’s also a great trick to strategize and choose your team members before the challenge. Maybe the next enemy is a Cryo Abyss Mage. So, it would be best to add a Pyro DPS to your team.
However, what happens when you don’t have the correct elements to beat the monsters? It would be best to start wishing away on the event or standard banners. You will also find that it is the quickest way to get powerful characters.
After that, the grind to find better artifacts and weapons begins. You should also make a note to farm for talent books to level up your abilities.
