Trivia

  • This is the only Hidden Palace Formula Domain whose English name does not reflect its Chinese name, as the Chinese name changed between the Closed Beta Tests and the game's global release while the original English name was retained.
    • The Chinese name translates along the lines of "Hidden Palace that Takes Responsibility for Wuwang," referring to the formulas used to seal away the serpent at Wuwang Hill.
    • The Zhou Formula refers to the ancient Chinese art of divination "Zhou Yi" (Chinese: 周易), one of the "Three Changes" (Chinese: 三易 Sānyì). The other two are "Guicang" (Chinese: 归藏) and "Lian Shan" (Chinese: 连山), correlating to the other two Hidden Palace Formula Domains.
  • According to Issue 2 of the Teyvat Times, Domain of Blessing: Frost II is the domain that travelers have been most likely to fail in both Co-Op Mode and Single Player.
  • The Achievement to unlock this Domain is also called Hidden Palace of Zhou Formula.
  • This is one of two regular domain entrances that does not have a Solomon's knot above it, the other being Cecilia Garden.
  • The level names of this domain are all "Frost" which likely refers to how the Ley Line Disorder gives benefits if you use certain Cryo reactions.
