First Half

  • In the first wave, all enemies materialize in the front area, and priority lies in dismantling the Pyro shield wielded by the Mage initially. Once this shield is shattered, attention shifts to the Dendro Primus, especially when they enter a stressed state, acquiring a Dendro shield and launching waves of Lushmissiles, each inflicting considerable Dendro damage. Swift removal of this shield is imperative to safeguard your characters from peril unless they possess formidable shields akin to Zhongli’s.
  • The most effective methods for removing this shield include: (1) employing a single Arkhe attack, (2) utilizing Electro attacks, (3) employing Hydro attacks, or (4) utilizing Pyro attacks. It’s crucial to note the high Dendro resistance of these Primus, particularly when employing Dendro DPS. Once all enemies are devoid of shields, focus on eliminating them concurrently.
  • In the second wave, Operatives emerge at the front area. Prioritize engaging the Wind Operative on the left rather than the Frost Operative. This is because the Frost Operative often employs the Blinkchase skill, propelling her towards you. By concentrating on the Wind Operative, you can corral both enemies to the same location. While the Wind Operative occasionally utilizes a teleport skill, its occurrence is less frequent and subject to RNG.
  • Vigilance is essential to evade their Hunt Down skill, which affixes a Bond of Life to affected characters. This skill sacrifices a percentage of the Operative’s HP to lock onto the player, inflicting Corrosion status and escalating damage upon subsequent hits. To counteract these effects, prompt removal of debuffs and immediate healing, ideally facilitated by cleansers like Jean or Bennett, is recommended. Additionally, monitoring both Operatives is crucial to prevent the stacking of Bond of Life debuffs, which hinder healing and amplify subsequent damage.

Second Half

  • In the first and only wave, you’ll face off against the formidable Jadeplume Terrorshroom. As the challenge commences, ensure you position yourself within Jadeplume’s attack range if you’ve brought melee DPS. Most of its attacks are short-range, allowing you to dodge and avoid taking damage. Alternatively, if you’ve enlisted a shielder or healer, you can hasten the battle’s conclusion by relentlessly assaulting Jadeplume.
  • Jadeplume possesses three distinct states: Normal, Activated, and Scorched. In its Normal state, it functions in its default form. The Activated state occurs when the Fury bar beneath its HP is filled by Electro attacks from your characters. While in the Activated state, Jadeplume adopts different attack modes but eventually succumbs to paralysis from exhaustion for 15 seconds.
  • The Scorched state arises when Jadeplume is affected by Burning (Dendro + Pyro). While this state isn’t particularly troublesome, beware of its skill that can summon up to four Fungi, consuming valuable time in the challenge. Both states have their merits, so choose the one that best suits your team. When Jadeplume is in the Activated state, exercise caution and precise evasion to avoid its potent attacks. Instead, wait until it’s paralyzed before unleashing your onslaught.
  • To counter the Scorched state and prevent the spawning of Fungi spores, swiftly destroy the spores with Electro, Hydro, or Pyro attacks within three seconds of their appearance. Any of the mentioned elemental AoE attacks are effective here, including Bennett’s skill.

Chamber 2

First Half

  • In the first wave, you’ll find yourself surrounded by 6 Specters in the central arena. Bringing along AoE DPS characters allows you to target multiple Specters simultaneously. It’s advantageous to have an Anemo crowd control (CC) character to corral the Specters and prevent them from teleporting or evading your attacks. Prioritize dealing with the Specters in the back area, and if feasible, lure those in the front towards the back to prepare for the next wave.
  • Keep in mind that Specters are immune to their elements, so ensure you bring at least one element different from all of them to effectively trigger reactions that can harm them (such as Hydro).
  • In the second wave, 3 Whopperflowers emerge at the back area, allowing you to promptly engage them. Alternatively, you can move to the front area, prompting the Whopperflowers to burrow underground and appear there, preparing for the next wave.
  • In the third wave, enemies spawn near each other at the front of the arena. Quickly rush to the front and prioritize eliminating the Line Breaker first (the blue one). Their skill charges ahead, often separating them from the group. With the other enemies grouped, collateral damage should help whittle down their health, particularly the tanky Rockbreaker Ax with the highest HP. Once the Line Breaker is dealt with, focus on defeating the big boss Rockbreaker Ax, which also boasts high HP and tends to protect its offspring.
  • Bringing along an Anemo CC character can streamline these strategies, as the Specters can be easily gathered using the Anemo Vortex.
  • I don’t recommend bringing a shielder or Physical character, as any Shadowy Husk or Black Serpent attacks on shielded characters grant buffs to themselves and nearby Husks at the cost of losing some health. Additionally, these enemies have resistance against Physical attacks.
  • Each enemy type in the wave possesses distinct abilities: Line Breaker (Hydro): Heals themselves and nearby Husks. Standard Bearer (Pyro): Generates a Pyro shield for themselves and nearby Husks. Defender (Cryo): Their bow acts as a shield, blocking attacks from the front.
  • Rockbreaker Ax: Enters a state that increases its ATK by 20% and resistance by 50%.

Second Half

  • In this scenario, you’ll be facing the Perpetual Mechanical Array boss in a single-wave encounter. Your optimal strategy involves employing a single-target Elemental DPS character to efficiently dismantle this formidable foe. Keep in mind that this cube boss boasts a significant 70% Physical Resistance.
  • While most of its attacks are easily avoidable, the challenge intensifies when the boss’s HP drops below the 50% mark, triggering Defensive Mode. During this phase, the boss summons four Ruin Sentinels: Scout, Defender, Destroyer, and Cruiser. Focus your attacks solely on the highlighted Sentinel, ideally baiting it to draw near to the boss. Attacking any other Sentinel would be a wasteful expenditure of your resources.
  • Once you defeat the highlighted Sentinel, the boss will be paralyzed for approximately 20 seconds, during which its resistance is lowered by 50%. Seize this opportune moment to unleash all your Skills and Bursts. Following the paralysis, the boss briefly becomes invincible before reverting to its normal attack patterns. Utilize this cycle to your advantage for a successful takedown.

Chamber 3

First Half

  • In this singular wave encounter, you’ll face the formidable boss “Icewind Suite,” embodied by Coppelia, the female counterpart notorious for dealing predominantly Cryo damage. Coppelia belongs to the Ousia-type category and can be temporarily paralyzed by three Pneuma attacks: Furina, Lyney, and Neuvillette, but only during its Climax phase.
  • While Coppelia’s attacks encompass a blend of Anemo and Cryo damage, these can typically be evaded as you would in the open world or mitigated with a sturdy shield. However, your primary focus should be on Coppelia’s Climax, which initiates at the onset of the fight. Coppelia and its counterpart, Coppelius, will converge at the center of the arena to unleash the Climax: generating three Whirlwinds of Dirge that periodically discharge blasts inflicting Anemo damage (alongside Cryo damage if infused with Coppelius’s ice blades). These Frosthearts cannot be destroyed, so it’s imperative to disregard them and concentrate your efforts on Coppelia.
  • Throughout the Climax phase, both Coppelia and Coppelius will exhibit a 25% resistance to all damage. However, you can disrupt the Climax sequence and temporarily paralyze the duo by striking Coppelia’s exposed core thrice with Pneuma Attacks. Furthermore, upon each Pneuma attack, the pulses of wind emanating from Coppelia will have a reduced area of effect and inflict only 60% of their original damage.

Second Half

  • In this single-wave encounter, you’ll face the formidable Veteran Arithmetic Enhancer Mek for the first time. While you may have encountered this enemy as a Local Legend in Fontaine, its skills remain consistent.
  • As an Ousia-type adversary, the Mek can be stunned briefly by striking it with Pneuma attacks while it’s not shielded. However, it boasts a Geo shield that bolsters its defenses, granting a 200% increase to all resistances. This shield is most vulnerable to Blunt Attacks, such as Claymore strikes, Plunging attacks, and the majority of Geo damage. Once destroyed, the shield will regenerate over time.
  • Additionally, the Mek emanates a Gravity Reduction Field, enhancing the jumping height of nearby characters while its Arkhe is active. Beware of its Gravity Ripple attack, which periodically sends out shockwaves that expand outward, dealing Geo damage upon impact. Unlike sprint i-frames, jumping is the recommended evasion method for this attack, unless you have a sturdy shield to absorb the considerable damage it inflicts.
  • While the Mek’s other attacks are more manageable, your primary focus should be on removing its Geo shield swiftly. Once depleted, unleash a relentless assault to incapacitate it before it can regenerate another shield. Swift and decisive action is key to overcoming this formidable adversary.

Optimal Team Comps to use on Floor 12 in Genshin Impact 4.5 Update Spiral Abyss

In the First Half, you’ll encounter a variety of mobs in all chambers except for chamber 3. This calls for both AoE and single-target DPS characters to be effective. However, it is recommended to prioritize a single-target DPS character equipped with Anemo crowd control capabilities. While most elemental compositions work well, it’s important to avoid using Cryo due to the high Cryo resistance of Coppelia in the 3rd chamber, and Physical due to the high Physical resistance of the Black Serpent Knight in the 2nd chamber.

Furthermore, it’s advisable to refrain from bringing shielder characters and opt for healers instead. Shielded characters may inadvertently trigger buffs for the Black Serpent enemies in the 2nd chamber, albeit at the cost of their health. However, engaging enemies in their buffed state may prove more challenging and ultimately not worth the risk.

In the Second Half, you’ll face a single boss on each floor, making a single-target DPS strategy highly effective. Geo is the element that proves particularly advantageous when facing the Local Legend Meka in the last chamber, thanks to its Geo shield. Geo attacks can effectively dismantle this shield. Additionally, other Blunt attacks, such as claymore strikes and plunging attacks (excluding bow and catalyst), are equally effective. If you include a claymore character in your party, any elemental composition except Dendro and Physical can be utilized effectively in this half.
