There’s a wide variety of weapons in Salt and Sacrifice, each catering to different builds and playstyles. The Executioner’s Maul, in particular, is intended for players who want a heavy-hitting weapon in exchange for a slower attack speed.
The weapon is a Class 1 Greathammer with D scaling in Strength and a 70% damage blocked value. It’s not as unique compared to the other greathammers in the game, but for one that can be obtained pretty easily, it can be a really solid choice.

Executioner’s Maul Location in Salt and Sacrifice
To get this weapon, you’ll want to head over to Ashbourne Village via a nearby portal. From there, go all the way left until you come across a road that leads to the Root-Ceil Cavern. However, instead of heading to its entrance, go up and continue all the way left until you find a slope that points toward the right.
Just follow the path all the way up until you come across some wooden platforms you can jump over. Make your way to the top of these platforms, and on the left side, you’ll find a chest containing the weapon.
Do take note, however, that the chest won’t be easily visible as it’s hidden behind some pine trees in the background. You just need to press toward the left until an interact button appears.
Genshin Impact: Totem Puzzle in ‘Garden of Endless Pillars’ Guide
Lighting the Pyro Totems in the correct order will help you complete this puzzle, and unlock a fast travel waypoint.
The Garden of Endless Pillars is located within the northwestern part of the Sumeru Desert. Once you’ve reached there, you’ll notice a giant slab cemented in the dunes, along with various Pyro totems surrounding it nearby.
There will be various mirage walls across the region, but they should be fairly easy to traverse, while hitting the totems with Pyro attacks.
We’ll explain how to successfully complete the Totem Puzzle in the “Garden of Endless Pillars” Guide – read on for our walkthrough.
The very first thing you’ll need to do is go to the Garden of Endless Pillars location on the map, which we’ve indicated in the screenshots below.
Once you’ve reached The Garden of Endless Pillars, you’ll need to switch over to Amber, as you’ll have to utilize Pyro attacks on the corresponding totems.
The first totem is extremely easy, as there are no walls blocking you – simply take a right upon entering the area, and shoot the totem.
To reach the second totem (pictured above) you will have to walk forward a fair bit until you spot the totem located in the right-hand corner. As you are blocked by the wall, you will need to traverse onto the concrete pillars to get a vantage point from which you can target the second totem.
Head right for the next totem, located in front of crumbled concrete walls. To find the last two totems, proceed forward and take a slight left. The very last one is located to the right, opposite of the prior totem.
Hitting all the totems will cause the slab to activate, and after this sequence, you will unlock a fast travel point for this region, which you can then use moving forward throughout the new update.
