In Genshin Impact’s Twisted Realm, one final challenge awaits you. This battle features the Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents, a familiar elite enemy that you have faced before. However, there are modifiers that can cause issues because this is part of the Energy Amplifier Initiation event. In this guide, we will help you with how to deal with the Twisted Realm’s Domain of Heresy enemies, and also give you some tips about the modifiers, score, and crystals.
How To Complete Genshin Impact The Twisted Realm’s Domain of Heresy
You first encountered the Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents during the archon quest “We Will Be Reunited” of Genshin Impact. The Ley Line Disorder that allows the boss to spawn attendants, is the difference this time. These hilichurls are identical to the ones you saw a few days ago in the Frost-Worn Space domain. They will provide resistance buffs and periodic healing to the Abyss Herald as long as they are alive.
Every 30 seconds, the boss summons four attendants, so you must be ready to deal with them. It will switch to its Dark Descent phase (i.e. water shield) and it won’t spawn attendants anymore when its health is reduced to a sliver.
How to Eliminate the Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents
The attacks and powers of the Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents are the same as before. These moves can hurt a lot depending on the modifiers you have chosen, as well as any active buffs. You can easily take the attendants out by using effective crowd control techniques and AoE abilities because they are hilichurl-type mobs.
Continue to do so until the Abyss Herald’s health is exhausted. The encounter becomes substantially easier after it switches to the Dark Descent/water shield phase because after that you wouldn’t have to deal with any more attendants. Furthermore, you can perma-freeze the Abyss Herald consistently by transforming into a Hydro entity.
You should be able to beat the boss if you use elements that can counter Hydro (such as Cryo and Electro). Go ahead and claim your challenge rewards if you have hit the 20,000-point mark. Also, don’t forget to stock up on items from the Energy Amplifier Initiation event shop.
That’s everything you need to know about the Twisted Realm’s Domain of Heresy Challenge in Genshin Impact.
