Genshin Impact

Akasha Pulses, the Kalpa Flame Rises

Jessica Dillon

Akasha Pulses, the Kalpa Flame Rises, is the last part of the Sumeru Archon Quest. This wraps up the tale of saving Nahida and will send Sumeru into a new era once you have completed the final task. In addition, this unlocks Scaramouche’s weekly boss fight, as well as allows you to complete Nahida’s story quest. Be warned, though, this is a long one. You will need to set aside 5 to 6 hours to beat it. Keep reading below to learn how to complete Akasha Pulses, the Kalpa Flame Rises.

A cutscene from the final scene of Askash Pulses, the Kalpa Flame Rises.


As agreed, you and the others gather in the village chief’s house to hold a meeting…

Through the Predawn Night

You will kick things off by speaking with Candace in Aaru Village, and then going into the chief’s house for one last team meeting. Directly after the meeting is finished, you will begin going to different locations throughout the area to finalize your plan.

You will eventually end up in Caravan Ribat, where you will meet up with Cyno to enact a plan that sneaks the Eremites into Sumeru City. This is a simple process; once Cyno has made the arrangements, you simply head back into the desert and beat three waves of Eremites to make the fight look convincing. Afterward, you will speak with Cyno again, and start the second part of the questline.

As by a God’s Side

You will now head back to Caravan Ribat. This time you will be working with Dehya. Once you meet up, you will head to Pardis Dhyai to speak with Tighnari. Tighnari will inform you that The Doctor is planning to leave Sumeru and has just departed from Pardis Dhyai. This will prompt Dehya to follow his trail. Follow her until she informs you that you need to head to Port Ormos.

Once you teleport to Port Ormos, you will quickly find that several Fatui are situated around the area. You will be placed into a stealth mini-game, simply crouch and walk behind the target through the bushes on the side of the road. Once you finally reach the final destination, you will realize that The Doctor was just trying to lure you away from Pardis Dhyai to get to Haypasia.

Teleport back, and prepare to fight three waves of Fatui. You will then go to check on Haypasia, where a cutscene will occur involving the Traveler and Scaramouche. After this encounter, go outside and speak with Dehya and Tighnari. You will then need to wait a day and head to the** Grand Bazaar in Sumeru City**.

Jnagarbha Day

Once you are in Sumeru city, wait til between 08:00 to 12:00 the next day and head to the Akadeymia. It’s here that you will meet up with Alhaitham and end up imprisoned after getting into the Head Sage’s office. You will wake up in a prison, explore the area and interact with every glowing spot you see until you enter into Nahida’s consciousness.

After a few cutscenes, you will play as Nilou for a while and need to walk to the Akadeymia. This will lead to the Traveler being freed. Once this happens, immediately head to the Sanctuary of Surasthana.

Where the Boat of Consciousness Lies

Scaramouche boss fight during the final Sumeru Archon Quest.

You will need to wait until 16:00 and then return to the Sanctuary of Surasthana. Speak with Nahida, and then enter into the domain to make your way to Scaramouche. This domain is simple to complete. You simply need to ride the lifts to each switch, and line up the rings until they are glowing.

This only takes a couple of minutes to do and will unlock the Scaramouche fight located in the Joururi Workshop Domain. To learn how to easily beat him, check out our complete guide on the boss fight here.

Once you have defeated Scaramouche, you will go through a series of cutscenes where the truth about Greater Lord Rukkhadevata is revealed. This is a short, straightforward domain that has** Fungi enemies** for you to fight. Just sit back and make note of the Sumeru lore.

A Toast to Victory

After fixing Irminsul, you will go around different parts of Sumeru to gather everyone for a victory feast put on by Nilou. Here are all the locations you will visit in order to gather everyone.

  • Gandharva Village
  • Grand Bazaar
  • Akademiya
  • House of Daena
  • Port Ormos
  • Aaru Village

Once you have spoken with everyone, wait two days, the clock will need to be between 19:00 to 24:00 to activate the event. Afterward, head to the Grand Bazaar in Sumeru City. Here, you will have a feast with all your party members, and after speaking with everyone, Nahida will make a surprise visit.

Once the feast is done, head to the Sanctuary of Surasthana. Here you will speak to Nahida, who will give you some information on your missing brother. As it turns out, Nahida is able to give you more information than any other Archon, and it adds another huge twist to the Genshin Impact story.
