The Spiral Abyss is a special type of Domain unlocked at Adventure Rank 20 located in Musk Reef, which can be accessed through the wormhole in the sky at the edge of Cape Oath.

The Spiral Abyss consists of two main parts: the Abyss Corridor (Floors 1–8) and the Abyssal Moon Spire (Floors 9–12). The Corridor's rewards can only be collected once, and completing all floors unlocks the Spire. The Spire's rewards reset on the 16th day of the month during the Moment of Syzygy. Prior to June 16th, 2024, the period beginning on the 1st of every month is called the Waxing Phase while the period beginning on the 16th of every month is called the Waning Phase.

Players can view their current progress on their map, next to their resin count. If no Spiral Abyss challenge exists, it will say "This round's challenge has not yet begun."

Abyssal Stars, Chambers, and Floors[]

The Spiral Abyss is divided into 12 floors, with each floor containing 3 chambers. In the Abyss Corridor, all enemies across each floor share the same level. In the Abyssal Moon Spire, the enemies in each chamber gradually increase in level.

For Floors 1 to 4, each chamber must be cleared in 300 seconds. From Floor 5 onwards, each chamber must be cleared in 600 seconds - in floors where the Ley Line Monolith must be protected, it must be kept intact, or the player will fail. In floors where 2 teams are required, the second half of the chamber starts with the time remaining from the first half.

All chambers have challenges that can be completed in order to obtain additional rewards outside of first-time clears. Currently, there are only two types of challenges - one in which the player needs to clear the chamber in a set amount of time, and another in which a Ley Line Monolith must have a specific amount of health. Entering the next floor requires you to have earned at least six Abyssal Stars from the previous floor, as well as having cleared all three of the previous floor's chambers.

Total stars earned are retroactive. In other words, it is not necessary to clear the entire floor to get more stars. If the player had obtained 3 stars from the second and final chambers of a floor, but none from the first on their first try, they may try the first chamber as much as they would like, with any stars gained during these attempts being saved even after leaving and restarting the floor.

The Abyss Corridor has various time requirements that are generally inconsistent across floors. However, the Ley Line Monolith defense is the same across both the Corridor and Moon Spire.

In the Abyssal Moon Spire, the time requirements are more consistent, with the first two chambers of floors 9, 10 and 11 requiring a clear time of 60/180/300 seconds (1/3/5 minutes remaining) for their stars. In the third chamber of floors 9, 10 and 11, and all of floor 12, the clear time required for their stars is reduced to 180/300/420 seconds (3/5/7 minutes remaining)

After completing a chamber, the character's health and energy will be halted at whatever levels they are at the time; if the chamber was cleared but the character is applying healing over time afterwards or energy particles/orbs were heading to them, they will be nulled.

Abyss Corridor and the Abyssal Moon Spire[]

Abyss Corridor

Abyss Corridor

Abyssal moon spire

Abyssal Moon Spire

The Spiral Abyss is composed of two parts: The "Abyss Corridor" and the "Abyssal Moon Spire." Clear all 8 floors of the Abyss Corridor to permanently unlock the Abyssal Moon Spire.

Seemingly following the lunar cycle of another world, the Abyssal Moon Spire will reset itself twice a month, occurring on the first and sixteenth days of the month, which may also cause a new period of Blessing of the Abyssal Moon to begin. However, the generous treasures found in the Abyss Corridor which connects the world to the Abyssal Spire will not change or reset over time. It should also be noted the moon visible in the abyssal moon spire is clearly distinct from the moon over Teyvat.

Enemies in the Abyss Corridor will always be the same, while enemies in the Abyssal Moon Spire will be varied. Floors 9 and 10 are generally updated once with every new region, whereas Floors 11 and 12 are changed around once every update.

Combat Bonuses and Restrictions[]

The everlasting whisper of the Spiral Abyss encourages you to go deeper. Choose your Benediction of the Abyss...

Challengers will receive recognition from the depths of the Spiral Abyss. This recognition comes in the form of a buff that assists the player in battle.

At the start of each chamber, the player can choose to receive one Benediction of the Abyss. 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.

Choosing the right Benediction according to the party composition will help complete the challenge more easily.

Descriptions[]

Spiral Abyss
A massive underground city constructed by an ancient civilization long gone. To this day, the purpose of this underground city remains unknown. Its structure is divided into the "Abyss Corridor," which connects worlds, and the "Abyssal Moon Spire," which leads to the unknown. It is now collectively called the "Spiral Abyss"... It is said that many secrets and treasures that have been long forgotten by this world lay buried within...
Monsters and humans alike flock to the tower in search of the secrets and treasures it contains. Challenge different floors of the tower and defeat the opponents within to win Abyssal Stars. Do this, and the Spiral Abyss may yet look upon your hard work and bestow rewards upon you.

Abyssal Stars, Chambers, and Floors
The Spiral Abyss is divided into floors with each floor containing 3 chambers. Each chamber has 3 challenges with increasing difficulty.
Abyssal Stars will be rewarded upon completing the challenges. The 3 chambers of each floor must be cleared with a minimum of 6 Abyssal Stars in order to proceed to the next floor.

Abyss Corridor and the Abyssal Moon Spire
The Spiral Abyss is composed of two parts: the "Abyss Corridor" and the "Abyssal Moon Spire."
Clear all 8 floors of the Abyss Corridor to unlock the Abyssal Moon Spire.
Seemingly following the Lunar Cycle of another world, the Abyssal Moon Spire will reset itself twice a month, with a new Lunar Phase occurring on the first and sixteenth days, respectively.
However, the generous treasures found in the Abyss Corridor which connects the world to the Abyssal Spire will not change or reset over time.

Restrictions and Ley Line Disorders
There are several restrictions in the Spiral Abyss. When challenging 3 chambers consecutively, you cannot:
· Consume food or other such items
· Change party members
· Change artifacts or weapons
· Level up or ascend characters.

In addition, each floor in the Spiral Abyss has different Ley Line Disorders. It can give buffs or debuffs to characters, opponents, or both. In order to complete the challenge more easily, you should always take the Ley Line Disorders into consideration.

Blessings and Benedictions
Challengers will receive recognition from the depths of the Spiral Abyss. This recognition comes in the form of a buff that assists you in battle.
The blessing in the Spiral Abyss changes every two weeks and provides a range of buffs. You can check the current buff in "Blessing of the Abyssal Moon."

In addition, at the start of each chamber, you can choose to receive one Benediction of the Abyss. 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.
Choosing the right benediction according to your party composition will help you complete the challenge more easily.

Divergence
It is said that some floors in the Spiral Abyss will diverge into two paths. To dive deeper, you must split your party into two groups...
Certain chambers will be divided into first and second halves. To clear the chamber, you need to split your party into two groups and clear each half separately. You cannot have the same characters in both groups.

Rewards and Reset
Clearing the Spiral Abyss gives you generous rewards. Clearing each chamber for the first time allows you to receive the "Chamber Bounty." Earn enough Abyssal Stars in each chamber to collect the "Star's Bounty." You can check the rewards in the Reward Preview.

With the start of a new Lunar Phase on the first and sixteenth day of each month, the Abyssal Moon Spire's rewards will reset, which may also cause a new period of Blessing of the Abyssal Moon to begin.
Abyss Corridor rewards will not be reset over time.

Description
Rumor has it that people who've ascended to Celestia have also witnessed the same helix-shaped divine ladder that can be seen within Visions. Venturing out into the universe and down into the abyss are the same in that both are braving the dark unknown.

Adventurer Handbook and Map description
The cycles of the moon elucidate the turning points of fate, and as the gears turn at the beginning and middle of the month, the treasures hidden at the end of the spire shows itself.

Complete Floor 8 Chamber 3 of the Abyss Corridor and challenge the Abyssal Moon Spire to win the treasure of the depths.

Moment of Syzygy
A grand underground corridor which leads to an unknown spiral constructed by a great empire that has long gone.

What treasures await deep in the palace, and what monsters lurk in the shadow...

Surrounded by mysteries, the inverse tower is now known as- Spiral Abyss
