Domains are instances located in temple-like entrances in Genshin Impact.

Completing the challenges within most permanent domains (Challenge Domains and Trounce Domains) rewards various items and materials such as Artifacts, Character Talent Materials, Weapon Ascension Materials, Mora, Adventure EXP, Weapon Enhancement Materials, Companionship EXP in return for some Original Resin. Challenges within One-Time Domains may be either combat-focused or puzzle-focused, and will also grant a reward the first time they are completed.

Some domains give achievements and/or a small reward of Primogems and Adventure EXP when discovered; some of these domains may require puzzles or quests to be solved or completed beforehand in order to access them.

Permanent Domains[]

Permanent Domains are landmarks in Teyvat. They have a clearly marked Domain Entrance and can be used as Teleport Waypoints once unlocked.

On the map, domains are marked as follows: Spiral Abyss for the Spiral Abyss, Challenge Domains for Challenge Domains, and Domains for Trounce and One-Time Domains.

Challenge Domains[]

These domains have three stages that are open on a varied basis. Each stage is open for three days each week; two set days, with the third day, Sunday, being consistent for all stages.

Domains of Forgery[]

Domains of Forgery award Weapon Ascension Materials. These materials can be used to ascend weapons to increase their stats and max level. Players must reach Adventure Rank 16 or complete For a Tomorrow Without Tears to unlock the entrances to these domains.

Trounce Domains[]

Trounce Domains are powerful Weekly Bosses that can be re-challenged after completing their respective Archon or Story Quests. They can be accessed on all days of the week.

  • Trounce Domains contain unusually powerful opponents. After successfully completing the challenge, you can obtain abundant rewards.
  • Players can complete this domain as many times as they want, but can only collect rewards once per week by using 30 Original Resin to open the Ley Line Blossom for the first three Weekly Bosses, and 60 Original Resin subsequently. Rewards are refreshed with Weekly World Reset.

9 Domains match the category selection:

One-Time Domains[]

One-Time Domains are unique domains that are denoted by a smaller blue circle that provide a set reward upon the first time a player completes them. They are still open after the first completion but will not offer any rewards. One-Time Domains provide an early boost to Adventure Rank through their Adventure EXP rewards and sometimes offer unique Food recipes, along with Primogems.

Spiral Abyss[]

Spiral Abyss is a special type of Domain that changes over time. It is unlocked at Adventure Rank 20 and can be accessed through the wormhole in the sky at the edge of Cape Oath. Each Stage of the Spiral Abyss counts as a domain challenge for the Battle Pass.

Temporary Domains[]

Temporary Domains only exists during a quest or event. Some of them use a permanent domain entrance, but most of them use a cavern or other terrain feature as entrance.

Quest Domains[]

Quest Domains are unique one-time domains that can only be accessed as part of an Archon, Story, or World Quests. Once complete they can no longer be visited, hence, one should check for hidden chests thoroughly.

Event Domains[]

Event Domains are domains that are available during a time-limited event. Some event domains are accessible in the overworld, identifiable by its unique doorway entrance. Other event domains are accessible via the event menu. All "Test Run" domains are event domains.

Co-Op Mode[]

Some domains can be completed in Co-Op Mode. This involves pressing the "Match" button in the Domain entrance screen to invite other players to one's world or join other players' worlds. After that, the host can invite other players in their world to join a Co-Op session to complete the domain or boss fight.

If a player falls in battle within the domain, they can enter spectator mode and will be able to rotate the camera view to see the other players battle in the domain.

Players are able to participate in domains they have not unlocked that the host has, as long as they meet the other Co-Op Mode requirements. This can be a way to farm materials in domains the player has not unlocked yet.


Upon completing a domain, use Original Resin at the Petrified Tree at the end of the domain to claim your rewards.
Original Resin replenishes at a rate of 1 Original Resin every 8 minutes.
Original Resin will not replenish once it reaches the max amount.
You can also replenish Original Resin by spending Primogems.

Challenge different domains to get artifacts and all sorts of level-up materials.

  • The challenge domains contain a petrified tree at the exit after clearing them. According to Albedo,[1] these trees are considered to be young, with ancient trees being one or two miles in height with an unknown spider species living in its roots. These have yet to appear in-game.
  • During the Secret Summer Paradise event, the Veluriyam Mirage event area is repeatedly referred to as a Domain in the lore, despite acting like a normal area lacking the gameplay limitations of an actual Domain.
