The new season of Grandmaster Nightfall means another rotation of strikes. One of the new strikes released to the Grandmaster rotation is the Scarlet Keep, the gigantic Hive fortress on the Moon. The arrival of this week’s Scarlet Keep has challenged players to quickly clear the strike at Grandmaster difficulty.

Players new to this strike might find themselves on a rather difficult spot. Many have failed due to using the wrong combination of weapons, subclass, and armors. But with the right set, completing the tower at Grandmaster Nightfall will be easy.

Weapon Recommendations

The Arbalest is the best-recommended weapon you can use in Scarlet Keep. Since there are more Barriers than Unstoppables, having consistent anti-barrier damage is key in this keep. Arbalest can also one-shot elemental shields and deal fairly decent damage. Other weapons are Trinity Ghoul, Point of the Stag, Tyranny of Heaven, Linear Fusion Rifle, and Blinding Grenade Launcher.

Subclass Recommendations

Aside from the boss room, the elevator phase of the keep is especially difficult. Having a Warlock who can apply Divine Protection or a Hunter that can apply invisibility on the team to protect them from incoming spam damage is important.

These are the recommended subclass for the Keep:

  • A Bannershield Titan with Ursa is highly recommended for the elevator phase in the Keep where enemies will be attacking in every side.
  • Omsiomancy Shadebinder Warlock
  • Omnioculus/6th Coyote Camo Hunter, Revenant Hunter (with Aeon or Renewal Grasps)
  • Phoenix Well Radiant Warlock
  • Saint 14 Bubble Titan.

Armor Mod Recommendations

For Armor Mods, the following are recommended:

  • Thermoshock Plating
  • Concussive Dampener
  • Protective Light
  • Shield Break Charge
  • Taking Charge
  • Shieldcrash Wellmaker
  • Elemental Charge

Genshin Impact: Sandglass Dendroculus Puzzle Guide

Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.

In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.

The Sandglass Location

To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.

Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.

From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.

The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge

Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.

First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.

From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.

When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.

From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.

At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.

After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.

Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
