What is the Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss? Located in Mondstadt in the Musk Reef, the Spiral Abyss is a special domain that consists of two main parts: the Abyss Corridor and the Abyssal Moon Spire. Fighting through the many floors of this domain will reward you with really useful items like Primogems, levelling materials, and Mora.

Below you'll find all the information in our Spiral Abyss guide, and we'll be sure to keep this page updated with any upcoming changes!


How Do I Get to the Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss?

You can unlock the Spiral Abyss at Adventure Rank 20 and access it through the wormhole in the sky at the edge of Cape Oath. Other than that, there’s no special requirement, with the floors separated only by different levels of difficulty.

The Spiral Abyss is divided into 12 floors, with each one containing 3 chambers. For Floors 1-4, each chamber must be cleared in five minutes, which changes to ten minutes from Floor 5 onwards. Starting at Floor 5, the Spiral Abyss will also separate into two paths, which will require you to set up two separate teams of four characters to fulfil the floor challenge. You can’t use the same character in both teams, and the second half of the chamber starts with the time remaining from the first half.

What Are the Genshin Impact Abyss Corridor and Abyssal Moon Spire?

The Spiral Abyss is composed of two parts: the 'Abyss Corridor' and the 'Abyssal Moon Spire'. Clearing all eight floors of the Abyss Corridor will unlock the Abyssal Moon Spire. While in the Abyss Corridor, all enemies are at the same level, while in the Abyssal Moon Spire, they gradually increase their level.

The Abyssal Moon Spire resets twice a month on the first and sixteenth day of the month, which will cause a new period of Blessing of the Abyssal Moon to begin and also reset its rewards. However, the rewards found in the Abyss Corridor won’t reset.


What Are the Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Combat Bonuses and Restrictions?

There are several restrictions while you fight through the Spiral Abyss. When challenging each floor, you cannot:

  • Consume food
  • Change party members
  • Change artifacts or weapons
  • Level up or ascend characters

What Are the Benedictions Of the Abyss and Ley Line Disorders?

Benedictions of the Abyss are buffs that assist you in battle. At the start of each chamber, you can choose to receive one of them, and choosing the right one according to your party composition becomes pivotal, as it’ll make the challenges easier to complete. Different benedictions have different effects and durations:

  • Effective this floor: Effect lasts until entering the next floor.
  • Effective this chamber: Effect lasts until entering the next chamber.
  • Effective immediately: Effect starts immediately.

In addition, each floor in the Spiral Abyss has a different Ley Line Disorder, a passive effect that can give buffs or debuffs to characters, enemies, or both. Ley Line Disorders can be Hazards, Elemental Debuffs, or Buffs of varied nature, and you should pay attention to them since they can turn the tide in your favour or become really annoying obstacles.

What Is the Blessing of the Abyssal Moon?

List of Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Floors

Every Floor in the Spiral Abyss makes you face several enemies while also presenting a challenge for you to fulfil if you want to ace it with the maximum amount of Abyss Stars. While the Abyss Corridor Floors always feature the same enemies, the Abyssal Moon Spire changes every two weeks.

What Are the Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Rewards?

The Spiral Abyss gives you rewards for clearing each chamber for the first time, which are called 'Chamber's Bounty', and getting enough Abyssal Stars in each chamber will also reward you with the 'Star's Bounty'. To enter the next Floor in this domain, you need to have earned at least six Abyssal Stars from the previous one, as well as having cleared all three of the previous Floor's chambers.

Abyssal Corridor's rewards can only be collected once, while the Abyssal Moon Spire rewards reset on the first and sixteenth days of the month, during a period called the 'Moment of Syzygy'. It is also during this period that a new Blessing of the Abyssal Moon will begin.
