Genshin Impact 4.3 | Best teams and strategies for Spiral Abyss Floor 12

It’s Spiral Abyss time, and Destructoid’s got the inside scoop on teams and tips to help you snag those elusive stars on Floor 12. Let’s dive into the nitty-gritty because we’re all hungry for those primo gems, am I right? The current abyss cycle is wrapping up on February 15, so let’s hustle!

Best Teams and Strategies

First Half Teams:

The first half is a breeze, no special mechanics to trip you up. Feel free to roll with any team you fancy. Personally, I’m vibing with freeze teams – nothing beats turning enemies into ice cubes.

Second Half Teams:

Now, here’s where it gets spicy. It’s a boss rush, folks! Two out of three bosses love to play hide-and-seek underground, so you need a team that can dish out single-target damage fast. Pro tip: Bring a Bow user with a Swirl-able element to mess with Setekh Wenut and Aeonblight Drake.

Blessing of the Ascendant Moon

After 16 rounds of healing, brace yourself for a shockwave of True DMG in an AoE around your active character. Sounds epic, right? Perfect for heal-over-time characters like Xianyun, Jean, Kokomi, Baizhu, Sayu, Barbara, and Diona. The shockwaves might not land every time, though – those bosses in the second half have some slick dodging moves.

Floor 12 Chamber 1

First Half:

Wave 1: 2x Construction Meks (Ousia)
Wave 2: 2x Large Dendro Breacher Primuses

Second Half:

Wave 1: Ruin Serpent


First half is a straightforward DPS check. But beware, those Breacher Primuses can turn you into Swiss cheese with their projectiles. Better bring a solid healer or shielder to the party.

The Ruin Serpent loves to play hide-and-seek underground. Stun it by hitting its glowing body segments when it does its twisty dance in the air. Spam AoE attacks and hope for the best – that’s my strategy.

Floor 12 Chamber 2

First Half:

Wave 1: 1x Geo Eremite summoner, 1x Anemo Eremite summoner
Wave 2: 1x Dendro Eremite summoner, 1x Pyro Eremite summoner

Second Half:

Wave 1: Setekh Wenut


Those Eremite summoners in the first half mean business. They summon familiars and take reduced damage while they’re around. Take out the familiars first or just go all out on the summoners – your call.

Wenut’s another dig-and-hide boss. Chip away when it surfaces and watch out for the airborne show. Hit those Anemo orbs with Pyro, Hydro, Electro, or Cryo to stun the Wenut. Bow Charged Shots work too, or trigger Swirl on its body for some real fireworks.

Floor 12 Chamber 3

First Half:

Wave 1: 1x Electro Specialist Mek, 1x Pyro Specialist Mek
Wave 2: 1x Electro Specialist Mek, 1x Pyro Specialist Mek

Second Half:

Wave 1: Aeonblight Drake


Same enemies in both waves of the first half – nothing fancy. Just be cautious, they can stagger you with Overload.

Aeonblight Drake takes flight immediately. Stun it by hitting its glowing face, chest, or wings. Keep stunning to drop its RES. Oh, and watch out – it’ll gain RES to the element that hurts it the most. Stun it again to wipe that RES away.

And there you have it, fellow gamers. Arm yourself with the right teams, a sprinkle of strategy, and a dash of luck, and those stars will be yours in no time.
