The last floor is here with the return of Maguu Kenki and A.S.I.M.O.N.! In my opinion, the 3.4 Spiral Abyss is far easier than the previous one because there are no floating enemies like Golden Wolflord. Continue reading this guide for the full analysis of Floor 12 in the Spiral Abyss.

Blessing of the Abyssal Moon

The Dendro RES and Electro RES will be decreased by 30% for opponents that are under the Quickened state. This effect will be removed 2 seconds after the Quickened state ends.

To trigger Quicken, you need to apply both Electro and Dendro on the characters, then you will see the Quicken Aura based on the green lightning around them. Once the Aura is gone, the RES debuff will disappear 2 seconds later, but amidst battle, I doubt we can pay attention to such detail.
In short, having a Catalyze team benefits you on all floors for the first phase of the V3.4 Spiral Abyss.


Team Recommendations

For this floor only, the ley line flow will be normal. You won’t have any extra buff from the Ley Line Disorder. Still, there are still a few characters that I recommend strongly!

First of all, if this floor is too hard for you, I recommend creating teams for each Chamber separately. This is because the 1st half requires single-target DPS for C1 and C3 but AoE for C2. Thankfully, the 2nd half wants AoE DPS for all Chambers.

For the 1st half of Floor 12, I recommend Catalyze team because you want the Electro + Dendro in the third chamber against ASIMON, which will make it easier for you to remove its invisibility. In addition, you can benefit from the current Blessing that reduces Electro and Dendro RES after the Quicken reaction. In addition, try to bring at least one shielder/healer because the reactions between Red Vulture and Scorpion in the second chamber are no joke.

While for the 2nd half of Floor 12, I recommend bringing at least one Anemo CC here because almost all enemies can be gathered here, with the exception of triple Maguu Kenki and the Eremites’ summoners when their beasts are alive. Other than that, AoE DPS works great here, especially for Maguu Kenki where you can attack them all simultaneously. And don’t forget a shielder/healer so your DPS can focus on attacking rather than dodging every single attack.

Team Example for F2P

For the 1st half, the Catalyze team I mentioned will be in the image above. Xingqiu is here for Hyperbloom because more reactions are always welcome, in addition, his Elemental Skill helps reduce damage taken and increase resistance to interruption, which is a whole lot of bonus.

For the 2nd half, bring at least one Anemo CC or AoE DPS because there are lots of enemies that can be gathered here (Except for Maguu Kenki). Other than Anemo, I focus on another Catalyze team to take advantage of Blessing and reduce Electro & Dendro RES for enemies. This way, the team can do much more damage.

Team Example for Veteran

The team for veterans is just an upgraded version of F2P with their 5-star counterparts. The 1st half is still Catalyze + Hyperbloom team.

However, for the 2nd half, I rely completely on Xiao as the main DPS since his Burst works great during triple Maguu Kenki in the second chamber. Kazuha can focus on crowd control while Bennett and Zhongli do their supports skill.


Floor 12 Chamber 1

First Half

Brute force, don’t think about anything else (well maybe dodging if you don’t have a shield)

  • In the first half, there is an Electro Elemental Node in the middle of the arena. This node gives a 50% Cooldown Reduction for enemies, meaning they can use their super attacks much faster. You can’t destroy this node, but enemies who are affected by this will have an Electro element, meaning you can trigger elemental reactions to remove the buff.
  • Since there is only one enemy per wave, you should bring a single target DPS to dish out as much damage as possible. Their attacks aren’t very threatening, but the problem is you also have lots of waves in the second half, so you need to complete this challenge within 1 minute and 30 seconds. Ideally, each enemy should take up to around 20-30 seconds.
  • Should you aim for the weakspot? No. I don’t recommend it because as I mentioned before, you don’t really have much time. It’s better if you can brute force everything.

Second Half

Anemo and AoE DPS works wonder here

  • In the first wave, the Whoppeflowers spawn near each other. But I still recommend bringing Anemo CC here because there’s gonna be lots of enemies. With CC, you can group and stagger them much easier. Not to mention, these Whopperflowers often move away with their burrowing skill. Even worse, it has a 35% damage reduction against all attacks and a 75% damage reduction of its own element.
  • In the second wave, the Mages still spawn each other. This is where your Anemo CC can shine the most. With Swirl, you can cancel out their shields with each other. There’s no priority in here because all the Mages are a threat, but I would focus on the Electro Mage because its Electro circle is very annoying and can stagger your character (Unless you bring a shield).
  • The third wave has 4 enemies and yet another place for your Anemo CC to be useful. Since these pairs can freeze you (Clearwater deals Hydro, Sunfrost deals Cryo), try to stagger them as much as you can with Anemo CC in addition to gathering them.

Floor 12 Chamber 2

First Half

  • In the first wave, fortunately, there’s only one Kairagi and 2 Nobushi that spawns near each other, so you don’t have to worry about the former regenerating HP. Try to corner all of them near the wall and defeat them.
  • The second wave is much harder because the two new enemies have great coordination, big AoE, and can trigger elemental reactions with their attack combinations (The bird deals Pyro damage, scorpion deals Electro damage). Whatever your team comp is, make sure to bring at least one healer/shielder because you’re gonna need it.

Destroy the block and attack the consecrated beast once to paralyze it

I’ve made a guide for all of its skillsets here: All You Need to Know about Consecrated Beasts

  • Once dealing with the Kairagi and Nobushi, I’m sure you will still be at the front of the arena. So when the Consecrated enemies spawned, the scorpion will do a jump attack toward your area and deals AoE damage (You can see where it lands by the purple circle on the floor). Try to avoid that attack to not make yourself inflicted by Electro. The bird will also have a stomping skill that deals Pyro AoE damage, so make sure to avoid this one too because your characters will be staggered and lose a huge chunk of health (If your shield is not Zhongli-level strong, it can also be shred easily).
  • Since these two work well with each other and aggressively chase after you, you will often find yourself cornered with one of them. That’s why try to focus on only one Consecrated enemy until it’s defeated so your character will have more time to take a breath and avoid attacks much easier. I would just focus on which one has the lowest HP.
  • There will be a time when they will summon Phagocytic Energy Block. Make sure to attack these rocks with elemental attacks until the bar is filled so you can gain a status > hit the respective enemies > paralyze them. If you left the Block alone for a period of time, it will boost the attacks of the respective.

Second Half

AoE DPS works wonders here

  • There is only one wave here and it’s the long-awaited triple Maguu Kenki. Unfortunately, you can’t gather them using Anemo CC, but you do can spread elements on them. Among all three, focus on the Cryo one because its AoE attacks will slow down your characters inside the radius of its Cryo-imbued floor. Once it’s defeated, the Cryo on the floor will also disappear alongside it.
  • If you’re lucky, the other two enemies will also take in decent collateral damage, reducing their HP to maybe half or so. Here, you can focus on the Maguu Kenki with the lowest HP, either Lone Gale or Mask of Terror. Don’t forget that the Mask of Terror still has its trusty mask to act as a shield if you are outside of its melee range.

Floor 12 Chamber 3

First Half

Asimon always teleports to in front of its prior position when in invisibility

  • Another returning enemy is ASIMON from version 3.1 with nothing new at all, so you should have an easier time with this one. Although this boss will enter invincibility mode by firing out components toward you just like the smaller Primal Construct, the boss is impossible to spot because even the outline can’t be seen. The methods to paralyze it and cancel its invisibility are still the same: 
    • 1. Use Catalyze reaction on the cores (hidden main body).
    • 2. Use Electro attack on the components. 
  • I prefer the first one because that method is much faster in paralyzing them, and the components are also quite tanky. One of the best methods to search for the core is by having auto attacks like Yae Miko and Nahida. Her Sesshou Sakura (the fox totem) can detect the invisible core and attack it, making its location known to you. Then you can use Nahida for Dendro attacks. Another option is Zhongli! His shield can show the location of the core when you’re near it (Or any other characters that can inflict debuff on it).
  • If you don’t have Yae Miko or Zhongli, I suggest going for the second method which is using Electro attacks on the components. While it may take time because there are multiple components, it is better than making your character attacks air trying to search for the core.
  • If you still want to search for the main core, there is another option. It will always try to teleport in front of where it is facing. So if you’re fighting it from the front of it > It turns invisible> It will be most likely behind you. Elemental Sight does NOT work in searching for the core. Try to defeat the within 1 minute and 20 seconds because there will be troublesome enemies in the second half.

Second Half

  • Mist Bubble Aura: Spawn Mist Bubbles around the active character every 12s and deal Hydro DMG if they touch them.
  • In the first wave, all the enemies spawn near each other. The prioritization here is definitely Desert Clearwater. Her Mist Bubble Aura is so annoying because it will trap your character (even if you have a shield) and deals decent damage. The small positive thing about this aura is that it can also trap the enemies that get near it, but I won’t chance it. As usual, Anemo works great here to group and stagger them all~

Defeat the beasts first so you can group the masters with Anemo CC

I’ve made a guide for all of its skillsets for new Eremites here: All You Need To Know About Eremite Scorching Loremaster & Floral Ring-Dancer

  • In the second wave, there are 2 new enemies, but that’s not the problem. The problem here is how all 3 of them will start by summoning their beasts even though their HP is still full. In other words, from the start, you can’t gather these ladies with Anemo CC and they will have higher resistance.
  • On the bright side, all the beasts will flock over you. So take advantage of that to gather them and deals AoE damage. Once they’re defeated, their respective master will be stunned for a few seconds with decreased resistance for their respective elements can now be grouped with CC. When they’re stunned, that is obviously the moment for you to unleash all sorts of Skills and Bursts you have.

You had reached the end of Spiral Abyss, congratulations! I hope you are satisfied with the number of stars you gain from the dungeon. Although you can retry the challenge multiple times, don’t push yourself too hard just to get the remaining Primogems.
