Genshin Impact in Version 3.6 update has brought a new set of enemies for both Floor 11 and Floor 12 in the Spiral Abyss. Since these are the topmost floors of the Abyss, ensure that you have units that are at least sufficiently built for the teams they are in. There are tons of team variations you can use.
But if you want to try the teams suggested in this guide, you should use your units that might be better alternatives and substitutes. In this guide, we will explain the new changes in the current Spiral Abyss, how to clear them in the current Genshin Impact 3.6 patch update, and the most optimal teams that can be used.
Genshin Impact 3.6 Update Spiral Abyss Guide: How to clear Floor 11
Ley Line Disorder: All characters in the Party gain a 75% Dendro DMG Bonus.
- During the first wave, your enemies will spawn in your immediate vicinity. To maximize your efficiency, it’s recommended to focus on the two Blazing Axe Mitachurls in the front. This will cause the Wooden Shield Mitachurls that appear behind you to initiate their Shield Charge attack (a maneuver where they rush toward you using their shield). As a result, you can gather all four enemies in one location at the same time.
- In the second wave, the Lawachurls will emerge on either side of the arena. By staying put, both of them will charge at you. However, if you choose to target one of the Lawachurls and draw its attention, you can lure it toward the other Lawachurl, making it easier to group them. As the Lawachurls possess an Electro shield, it is advisable to bring a character with the ability to break through those shields (such as Pyro, Cryo, or Dendro).
- During the first and second waves, enemies will constantly respawn following the defeat of any Mimic. The initial wave includes three Raptors at the front and one Frog at the back. Once any one of them is defeated, another Raptor will emerge until all three are present (Wave 2). After that, no further respawns will occur until Wave 3, which only appears after all enemies in Wave 2 are defeated.
- As all enemies are constantly afflicted with Hydro, utilizing elements like Dendro can rapidly drain their HP or Cryo can freeze them. It’s essential to bear in mind that once any Frog is defeated, it will produce a large balloon that will explode, dealing AoE Hydro damage. Additionally, you’ll need at least one archer or catalyst because it’s impossible for your character to harm the flying Raptors unless they descend to attack you. Alternatively, bring a character with a skill that can target floating foes, such as Fischl’s Oz or Yaoyao’s Yuegui. However, these abilities are only temporary solutions, so bringing an archer or catalyst is still recommended.
- In the fourth wave, all three Mages appear distant from one another. To draw the remaining two towards you, go to the nearest Abyss Mage after defeating the Mimic from your previous location (if they don’t teleport, you can focus on them one by one). One of them has a Slowing Water Aura, so it’s best to concentrate on this Mage first before tackling the others. They also have a Bubble skill that can entrap your character and cause significant Hydro damage, so it’s crucial to destroy their Hydro shield quickly using Dendro or freeze them with Cryo to prevent them from attacking.
- The first wave of Ruin Drakes spawns together, making it easy to gather them, but this can hinder visibility and make it harder to dodge attacks. It’s recommended to bring a shielder or healer. There’s no need to aim for the weak point; using brute force is more effective. In the second wave, the Ruin Graders spawn on opposite ends of the arena. Head to the nearest one immediately, causing the other to charge toward you and get stuck on the wall. Use all your skills and bursts on them and bring an elemental team due to their high physical resistance. You can choose to aim for the weak point, but it’s not necessary. Dodging incoming attacks and using brute force is a better strategy.
- During the first wave, there are heavy Hilichurls that cannot be grouped with Anemo CC. It’s better to defeat them one by one and prioritize the Anemo Rouge first. Attack the Anemo Slimes to shoot down the hovering Anemo Rouge, and burst the Hydro Slimes to cause their effects to rebound on the Hydro Rouge. In the second wave, two Geovishaps with different Auras and elements spawn on opposite sides of the arena. They become infused with Hydro or Cryo elements when they reach 40% HP. These Vishaps are resistant to Geo attacks and can be stunned temporarily while performing a Charge Attack if they hit a player with a shield.
- During the first wave, two Kairagi will spawn and you need to watch out for their ability to regenerate half of their HP and become immune to CC when one of them dies. You should lure them to the back area and attack both of them until their HP is the same before finishing them off, or use high burst damage or Freeze team to kill them simultaneously and prevent one from healing.
- In the second wave, enemies spawn at the back and you should focus on the Standard Bearer first, as they have lower HP and their collateral damage can also hurt the Rockbreaker Ax. Avoid using shielders or Physical characters because Shadowy Husk and Black Serpent attacks will buff themselves and nearby Husks at the cost of losing some health. Each enemy has unique abilities such as Line Breaker’s healing, Standard Bearer’s Pyro shield, Defender’s Cryo bow shield, and Rockbreaker Ax’s increased ATK and resistance.
- During the first wave, prioritize defeating the Hydro Legionnaire as it can heal allies and has a Mist Bubble Aura. The Electrohammer enemies will naturally chase after you. In the second wave, there will be two Mirror Maidens with an Aura that reduces your Skill CD. If you have Anemo CC, use it to gather the two enemies together. Otherwise, focus on defeating one Mirror Maiden at a time.
Optimal Team Comps to use on Floor 11
An Anemo CC isn’t necessary for Chamber 1 as there is no Monolith-defense challenge. In the First Half, Cryo or Pyro elements are recommended due to the presence of Thunderhelm Lawachurls with Electro shields. Melt teams are great for this section, but it’s advised not to bring a shielder as there are enemies that can gain buffs from shields. A healer is suggested instead. In the Second Half, Dendro is recommended to shred Hydro Mimic’s HP, and an archer/catalyst is advised to take down Mimic Raptors. Healers/shielders are also recommended to protect against Mimic Frogs’ AoE explosions. An archer/catalyst can also help bring down Anemo Hilichurl Rouge.
Genshin Impact 3.6 Update Spiral Abyss Guide: How to clear Floor 12
Ley Line Disorder: For this floor only, the Ley Line flow will be normal.
- In the first wave, enemies are grouped, so you can easily gather them. Avoid using hovering/floating characters that can cause the Ruin Hunter to enter Bombardment mode, where it flies higher and fires missiles. Focus on using elemental attacks because Ruin enemies have higher resistance against Physical attacks.
- In the second wave, you will face new Consecrated enemies that create Bloom reactions. Use Electro to trigger Hyperbloom, but be careful of the Dendro Cores that damage both allies and enemies. Focus on one enemy at a time, preferably the one with the lowest HP. Attack the Phagocytic Energy Block with elemental attacks to gain Phagocytic energy, then use it to paralyze the respective enemies. If you leave the Block alone, it will boost the attacks of the respective Blessbone enemies. Complete this stage quickly because there will be three waves in the second half, and the best time to finish it is within one minute to get full stars.
- The first wave of enemies in a different domain features Shrooms, including two Winged Shrooms that can fly above the player’s melee range. Players should prioritize these enemies.
- In the second wave, players will face Nobushi and Kairagi enemies that can regenerate half of their HP and be immune to CC if one of them dies. The player should attack both enemies equally to prevent one from recovering HP, use high burst DPS, or immobilize the Kairagi with a Freeze team.
- The third wave in the same domain features Consecrated Fanged Beast and Consecrated Scorpion enemies that can trigger Catalyze and increase their damage. Players should defeat one enemy at a time, destroy the Phagocytic Energy Block to paralyze the enemies, and avoid attacking them with Dendro/Electro attacks to prevent triggering Catalyze.
- The only enemy in this stage is the Aeonblight Drake (refer to our guide to get the full details of the Boss). To summarize, the Aeonblight Drake often flies high up in the air, making it unreachable for melee characters. It’s important to bring a Bow character to hit its weak points. It will either be on its head, chest, or both of its wings depending on its attack. Once you hit its weak point, it will fall to the ground. This will give you a window to attack until it recovers. It’s crucial to keep hitting its weak points whenever it goes airborne. Avoid using Physical characters as it has high resistance against Physical attacks.
- In the first wave, 3 Rouges spawn far from each other, and it’s recommended to defeat them one by one rather than trying to gather them with Anemo CC. The Hydro Rouge will use Hydro Slimes, which you can burst to rebound their effects on the Rouges.
- In the second wave, the Scorching Loremaster and Galehunter summon their beasts immediately. So you can go to the Galehunter to gather Desert Clearwater and Sunfrost. These two enemies should be prioritized as they have Aura, can freeze you, and be vulnerable to attacks. If you don’t bring Anemo CC, the Galehunter can be used as a solution to gather all of them in one spot.
- The ASIMON “Algorithm of Semi-Intransient Matrix of Overseer Network” has appeared twice before in Abyss. This has made it easier to defeat this time around although if players still struggle to defeat it, please refer to our guide for an in-depth analysis of the Boss.
- To summarize, the boss often goes invisible by firing components at the player. To cancel its invisibility, players can either use Catalyze reactions on the hidden main body or destroy and use Electro attacks on the components. Auto attacks like Yae Miko or Oz’s Skill can detect the invisible core. Players can also use Zhongli’s shield or any other character that can inflict debuffs on the Matrix.
- If none of these characters are available, players should opt for the second method of destroying the components. The main core always teleports to where it’s facing, and Elemental Sight doesn’t work to find it. It’s recommended to defeat the boss within 1 minute and 20 seconds. This is because the second half of the battle will have more challenging enemies.
- In this challenge, there is only one wave consisting of three Maguu Kenki. Refer to our guide to garner more information about the enemy. To put it simply, Anemo CC won’t work on them, but you can spread elements on them. It is recommended to focus on the Cryo Maguu Kenki because its attacks will slow down your characters. Once defeated, the Cryo on the floor will disappear.
- If you’re lucky, the other two enemies will also take collateral damage, reducing their HP. Then, focus on the Maguu Kenki with the lowest HP. The Mask of Terror has a shield, so stay within its melee range.
Optimal Team Comps to use on Floor 12
If the floor is too difficult, you can change teams and start from Chamber 1 without worrying about stars. In the First Half, a single-target DPS is recommended for Chambers 2 and 3, while an archer is necessary to face Aeonblight Drake. Physical teams aren’t advised due to the high Physical Resistance of Ruin enemies. In the Second Half, AoE attackers are recommended for waves of multiple enemies, along with an Anemo character for gathering enemies and lowering their Elemental RES. It’s also recommended to bring a shielder or a healer.
