The Ruin Serpent is the new weekly boss added as part of Genshin Impact update 2.6. This is a ruin enemy and it is equally resistant to all elements so dealing with it effectively can be tricky. In this Genshin Impact guide, we are going to go over how you can beat the Ruin Serpent.
Defeating The Ruin Serpent Boss In Genshin Impact
We recommend upgrading the Lumenstone Adjuvant gadget to level 2 before taking on the boss. You can do this by talking to Jinwu at the Ad-Hoc Main Tunnel campsite in The Chasm.
You will need to complete the Chasm Spelunkers quest which gives you Lumenstone Ore. This is the item that you will need to refine the Adjuvant. Once you have the Lumenstone Adjuvant gadget upgraded to level 2, you will be able to destroy the purple concentrations that the boss summons. This will lower its attack and can even stun it.
Ruin Serpent Boss Fight Team Comp
The Ruin Serpent is equally resistant to all elements so you can pick the characters that you like to play. We do recommend getting ranged or AoE characters in order to hit the weak points of the boss. We can recommend characters such as Ganyu, Yoimiya, and Venti.
If you have good support characters that increase the survivability of your team, then you might be able to tank the boss without having to stay at a safe distance. Great support characters include Zhongli, Diona, and Bennett.
Ruin Serpent Boss Fight
When the encounter starts, the boss is going to drain the Lumenstone Adjuvant. You can avoid this by not having it on you when you start the fight and then equipping it later on.
The Ruin Serpent will summon purple concentrations. Break the golden roes that pop up and use them to get rid of the concentrations. If you do not do this then the boss will absorb them and will get a buff.
While you are trying to destroy the purple concentrations, the boss is going to charge up. If you can destroy all of them before the charge is completed then the boss is going to be stunned.
Furthermore, you can hit the glowing spots on the boss in order to stun it if the Lumenstone Adjuvant is drained. While the boss is stunned you will be able to deal large amounts of damage so make the most of this time.
You can dodge all incoming attacks by sticking to the edge of the arena. Destroy the concentrations while you move around the edge.
