Recommended Party

You will need to bring along a Geo, Cryo, Electro and a Hydro character to make this Domain easier. A healer is also recommended due to the damage output of the enemies.

Defeat all enemies

As you enter the Domain, the first thing you’ll notice is the Stonehide Lawachurl, this is by far the biggest threat but not the first enemy to focus on due to its shield and large Health pool. Focus on the Pyro Abyss Mages first because once you strip their shield, they will fall quickly. By using a Hydro character, you’ll be able to take down their shield at a quicker pace because they are weak to it, combo with Cryo and you’ll trigger Frozen on them which will stop them from acting for a short period. Once they are down, it’s time for the Lawachurl, here are its moves and how to deal with them:

Once their shield is down focus on using Hydro and Electro to trigger Electro-Charged which will deal continuous Electro damage over time and it will also interrupt their actions. Beidou’s Stormbreaker skill is useflul here as it can shield you from the damage and then counter with an Electro attack.

It has your standard Melee Attack which can knock you down which is avoidable by dodging as soon as it raises its hand.

A Jumping Slam Down attack, what you want to do here is stand just outside the south of the red AoE marker and as it lands dodge away from it to avoid the Geo aftershock it creates as it hits the ground.

And finally a Triple Slam attack which it will slam both arms on the ground and create an aftershock which will come out from it and head towards you. The easiest way to deal with this, is pick a direction and keep running that way, as each hit strikes the ground, time the dodge button the way you’re running. Sometimes it will only do one of these slams so it’s not always a triple attack.

(1 of 5) The Stonehide Lawachurl will cast a shield on itself when you initiate battle
