Zephyr of the Violet Garden, the Genshin Impact‘s Version 2.6, will be released on March 30, 2022. Players can soon embark on a voyage to the westernmost region of Liyue, and explore the unfathomable region together with Dainsleif. We will break down more on how Chasm will unlock in the Version 2.6 Update in Genshin Impact.
For years, The Chasm served as Liyue’s primary source of ores, particularly for its famous porcelain products. From above, one can observe the violet-red color of the soil in this area. Recent mysterious events have led to the closure of this area. Travelers, however, players can work with a team of experts from different backgrounds to explore the underground.
How to Unlock the Chasm in Genshin Impact
The Chasm can be found in Liyue near the Qingxu Pool and Lingju Pass. Mining has been halted in this area, due to the danger and incidents there. In the Chasm, Azdhaha and Morax are said to have fought. Liyue is considered a part of the Chasm, and its Lore is also deeply rooted it.
Liyue is littered with texts that say the Chasm resulted from a fallen star falling around 6,000 years ago. After the Archon War, the Chasm was so upset by the constant strife it returned to the skies, leaving behind the Dunyu Ruins.
In the Chasm, one can follow miners to the mountain’s base as you take part in Genshin Impact Zhongli‘s quests. One can find out that Azhdaha, the Geodragon, resides in the mountain, but was angered by miners who disturbed the flow of elemental energy within. Neither Zhongli nor his fellow adepti were able to seal him away until they fought him down deep inside the cavern. By doing so, the miners were able to return and a rare ore was created-Dragonfall.
Due to the recent occurrences of accidents within, the miners have been evacuated from the Chasm, due to its link to the abyss. Chasm, as a result, is now open to many enemies, making exploration dangerous.
Life and Dangers above Chasm: How to proceed
Above ground, players can see only a tiny fraction of The Chasm. Miners have carved out the vast underground space layer by layer, creating a unique ecosystem of fluorescent creatures. Likewise, unknown dangers appear to be making their way into our world. In addition to the enemy creatures such as Hilichurls and Treasure Hoarders, Fatui who have managed to sneak in, and the Ruin Serpent, one will also have to contend with enemies from the Abyss.
Players will not be left in the dark unprepared. Players must use Lumenstone Adjuvant, which is a good way to light up the path. By upgrading this gadget, one will benefit from exploration, as well as gain a 4-star Weapon Billet and a brand-new name card.
Players will be able to meet the forgotten Dainsleif again, once they reach the bottom of The Chasm and are surrounded by ancient ruins. As the Archon Quest “Requiem of the Echoing Depths” progresses, more details regarding the Traveler siblings will be revealed.
New Features and Puzzles in the Chasm
A lot of amazing details about this new region were revealed, such as new features, puzzle mechanisms, archon quests, and more. Players must check them out here.
1. Bedrock Key
The Chasm now features the bedrock key. This is also the key to exploring the Chasm. Once those keys are dispelled, travelers will be able to enter and explore the underground mines of the Chasm. Liyue Qixing built these arrays around this region in order to protect the precious mines. It’s here you’ll find a number of essential items, unlock and complete Chasm quests, and solve puzzles to acquire loot chests.
2. Cranes and SpoutRocks
For mining and delivery, miners in the Chasm build many cranes. In this region of the Chasm, one can find lots of cranes that move up quickly. The area is dotted with Spoutrocks stones to help Travelers jump higher. As a result, players of Genshin Impact can reach higher places faster, without having to go climbing cliffs and using their stamina.
3. Unique Rock Pillars
A series of unique rock pillars line the chasm of Genshin Impact. Explosions and blunt trauma can cause a resonant earthquake if players hit a pillar. Additionally, geo-constructions and other rock columns are also affected by these waves. There is also an exclusive puzzle for the Chasm in Genshin Impact. The key to solving this puzzle is to cause resonances among the unique rocks that surround the symbol. The only way to hit the rock pillar is to count how many Geo symbols are on the rocks.
4. Cage-shaped Geo Formations
Bedrock Keys are situated near Cage-Shaped Geo formations. Their binding functions are in these geological formations. Players must get Geogranum and then shoot a Crystal Projectile at the Bedrock Key with the Cage-shaped Geo Formation. This will cause the Crystal Projectile to dispel or break the Bedrock Key. This mechanism provides players with many Geogranum ores.
5. Glowing Pyramid Puzzles
Genshin Impact uses plate pressure as a puzzle mechanism. Players can end a time challenge or solve a puzzle to collect the treasure chest when they trigger a plate with a Geo structure of Zhongli or Geo Travelers. In the Chasm, players will find a lot of puzzles that make use of Plate Pressure. If players press a plate, one will see a glowing pyramid appear. To solve the Glowing Pyramid puzzle and find Treasure Chests, you need to follow the traces.
Chasm will have these new features upon release of Genshin Impact 2.6. The release date is March 30th, 2022. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover this new region.
