The release of Genshin Impact 2.6 includes a new domain, and unlocking The Lost Valley should be at the top of the to-do list of many players. The new domain contains two powerful artifact sets in the Vermillion Hereafter and Echoes of an Offering, and given their viability on several characters, getting access to this location to begin farming immediately is a must.
Luckily, The Lost Valley is easily unlockable within the first hour of new content in Genshin Impact 2.6, provided players prioritize it. Simply gaining access to The Chasm gives players the chance to unlock the new domain, which is located a short distance away from the only Archon Statue in The Chasm\’s overworld map – making it a location that\’ll be important to visit for multiple reasons.
Those looking to unlock The Lost Valley in Genshin Impact can find its location marked on the map below. Read on to learn about the small puzzle that\’s required before gaining access, and get farming artifacts as quickly as possible.
Completing The Lost Valley Domain Puzzle
Players will find that the location marked above contains a Unique Rock. This Unique Rock needs to be resonated with in order to unlock access to the domain, but it\’s not immediately obvious where a statue to resonate with may be.
Players looking to unlock The Lost Valley will need to first place a Geo Construct on the floor panel shown here, just in front of the Unique Rock. Doing so will spawn rings in the air that allow players to quickly glide to the next necessary location.
Next, players will need to quickly go through the rings to get to a huge chunk of rock that\’s outcropped from The Chasm area. A chest will have spawned on the correct one, and it\’s also the only one in the area that\’s glowing with Geo energy. Again, spawn a Geo Construct to create a resonance effect with the rock, which will ripple out. As long as the first Geo Construct is still on top of the floor marker, it will act as the last in a chain to break open the Unique Rock.
The last step in unlocking The Lost Valley in Genshin Impact is simply to return to the location that was previously blocked and enter the cave. There, players will find a few ores and, off to the right beside the hole in the floor, the new domain.
What Artifacts Are In The Lost Valley Domain
The Lost Valley domain in Genshin Impact contains the Vermillion Hereafter and Echoes of an Offering sets. These artifacts contain unique effects that make them desirable for a variety of team compositions, with characters like Xiao and the new 5-star Hydro sword-user Kamisato Ayato among those who would benefit from experimentation with these options.
