Blessing of the Abyssal Moon: Reviving Moon

For this patch, enemies affected by Quicken (Electro + Dendro) will have their DEF decreased by 35% for up to 10 seconds.

Leyline Disorder

Aside from dendro and electro character, make sure to let your pyro and hydro characters join the fray. Damage dealt by Dendro cores from bloom (dendro + hydro), burgeon (bloom + pyro), hyperbloom (bloom + electro) is increased by 125%. Still confused? Check out our Dendro Reactions guide to know how to proc these reactions and how they will affect skirmishes.

What is the Best Team Composition for Spiral Abyss Floor 9?


Floor 9 can be efficiently dealt with with the help of anemo units with heavy crowd controls such as Sucrose, Venti and Kazuha. If it’s possible to bring one for each team, do it as it will make the fight quicker. Bringing a dendro character is only suggested to make the most out of the Blessing and Leyline Disorder, but it is not required. These two only serve as an aid in clearing it especially if your damage is not enough to finish it on time. So, don’t fret as you can still face the abyss head-on with your favorite characters.

Shown below are examples of characters that you can place in a team. As a rule of thumb, your team should have 1 DPS, at least 1 sub-DPS and at least 1 support (healer/shielder/buffer).

Take note that these characters/teams are only examples, and can be easily replaced of different character of the same element.

  • First Half
Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Floor 9 Team Composition

Geo attacks are helpful against Rock Shieldwall Mitachurls and Geo Samachurls as they can bring down its impenetrable shield and rock pillars, respectively. This team composition is a much safer pick as applying Pyro, and Electro attacks on Fungi will only allow you to take more damage from them due to enhanced attacks.

Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Floor 9 Team Composition

If you think you can handle it, go for this type of team composition. Ideally, your team should look quite like this one if you’re aiming to make the most out of the Leyline Disorder and Blessing of the Moon. Landing electro-pyro-hydro-dendro attacks simultaneously can trigger Quicken, Bloom, Burgeon, Burning, Hyperbloom.

The only problem in this comp is that you do not have enough crowd control to keep them in the same spot. To make it worse, blasts from overload knock them back.

Freeze comp is one of the best compositions for Floor 9 second half. The second half is invaded by several Eremites that you can paralyze temporarily with freeze. Additionally, Hydro Abyss Mage, Hydro Slimes and Pyro Slimes are also making an appearance and Cryo is precisely one thing you need to quickly get rid of them.

Benediction for Spiral Abyss Floor 9

Benediction also provides several buffs that you and your team can take advantage of. At the start of each chamber, players are given three options they can pick from. Take note that these benedictions have different durations.

Pick the best buff that is suitable for your team. For instance, pick the crit buff to enhance your damage output or choose to increase your healing effectiveness for survivability. 

If you received buffs that do not exactly improve your team’s viability or survivability, wait for the next day as it gets replaced with another set every 4am.

Here’s the list of Benedictions that you can randomly get.

General tips for Spiral Abyss Floor 9

  • Gather the enemies together by walking towards the edge of the arena. This will ensure that all enemies can be caught inside your AOE attacks.
  • All enemies for Floor 9 can be pulled in with Sucrose, Kazuha and Venti’s skills, except for Abyss Mages while protected by elemental shield. Basically, the trick is to put them together using crowd controls as you apply several attacks.
  • Alternatively, freeze comps can work too.
  • The specific guide encourages the use of Sucrose, Kazuha and Venti to get the job done. Unfortunately, not everyone has them. So, this will instead focus on team compositions that lack crowd controls.
  • While it’s best to bring a pyro and electro, Fungi’s attacks are enhanced if inflicted with these elemental attacks. Switch to another character of different element to avoid this dilemma.

Chamber 1

Challenge Target

Chamber 1 consists for Level 72-76 enemies; hence it might be tough to defeat for some. To make it worse, players should take them down as soon as possible. Clearing Spiral Abyss before the 6:59 minute mark grants three stars, 4:59 minute for two, 2:59 minutes for 1. If you’re having difficulty finishing it on time, determining the key targets to prioritize over the others is essential.

  • Remaining challenge time longer than 60 sec.
  • Remaining challenge time longer than 180 sec.
  • Remaining challenge time longer than 300 sec. 

First Half

First Wave

Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Floor 9 Slimes
EnemyDescription
Hydro Slime– Hydro damage
– Immune to Hydro
– Applies hydro to themselves
Floating Hydro Fungus– Hydro damage
– Little chance of trapping you in a bubble
– 20% resistance to Dendro and Hydro, 10% for the rest of the elements
Whirling Cryo Fungus– Cryo damage
– 20% resistance to Dendro and Cryo, 10% for the rest of the elements
Stretchy Pyro Fungus– Physical damage
– 20% resistance to dendro and pyro, 10% for the rest of the elements.

For the first wave, things that you should be wary of are getting trapped by a bubble from Floating Hydro Fungus and getting frozen.

Floating hydro fungus unleashes a bubble that frequently encages itself rather than its target. However, it could successfully release one that could chase its target. Fortunately, it is relatively easy to dodge due to its slow movement. Standing behind an opponent while it is traveling in your direction traps that instead.

Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Floor 9  Fungus

Whirling Cryo Fungus on the other hand is a significant threat especially with the presence of Hydro Slimes and Floating Hydro Fungus. Combining their attacks may result in you getting immobilized with Freeze, making you vulnerable. That said, keep an eye on this little creature and might as well finish it off first before everything else.

Second Wave

Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Floor 9 Fungus
EnemyDescription
Hydro slime– Hydro damage
– Immune to Hydro
– Applies hydro to themselves
Stretchy Geo Fungus– Physical damage
– 20% resistance to Dendro and Geo, 10% for the rest of the elements
Floating Dendro Fungus– Dendro damage
– 25% resistance to dendro, 10% for the rest of the elements
Whirling Electroshroom– Physical damage
– 20% resistance to dendro and electro, 10% for the rest of the elements.

Lacking a ranged or mid-ranged character shouldn’t be an issue if you start by killing Floating Dendro Fungus. Try to nuke these two down before they float in the air, driving them unreachable. After that, you may proceed killing the rest by gathering them in the same spot before landing AOE attacks.

Third Wave

Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Floor 9 Fungus
EnemyDescription
Hydro Slime– Hydro damage
– Immune to Hydro
– Applies hydro to themselves
Winged Cryoshroom– Physical and cryo damage
– 30% resistance to Dendro and Cryo
Stretchy Geo Fungus– Physical damage
– 20% resistance to Dendro and Geo, 10% for the rest of the elements
Stretchy Pyro Fungus– Physical damage
– 20% resistance to dendro and pyro, 10% for the rest of the elements.

With the similar reasoning from the first wave, take down Winged Cryoshroom first. It should be followed by Hydro Slime before Stretchy Geo Fungus and Pyro Fungus.

Second Half

Clearing the second half is a piece of cake with any anemo unit on your side. Defeating them isn’t as complicated as you can land your anemo elemental burst and let the rest of your abilities handle it.

Without the presence of anemo cc, there’s another option you may opt for. Stand next to the bow-wielding Eremites or at the edge of the area, so that the rest of them would walk towards your direction. That way, they will be clumped into one single spot where you can release chains of attacks that will put them into their deathbeds.

First Wave

Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Floor 9 Eremites
EnemyDescription
Eremite Crossbow– Ranged
– Physical and dendro damage
– -20% resistance to physical attacks
Eremite Linebreaker– Melee
– Physical damage
– -20% resistance to physical attacks
Eremite Ravenbeak Halberdier– Melee
– Physical damage
– -20% resistance to physical attacks

Second Wave

Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Floor 9 Eremites
EnemyDescription
Eremite Sword-dancer– Melee
– Physical damage
– -20% resistance to physical attacks
Eremite Linebreaker– Melee
– Physical damage
– -20% resistance to physical attacks
Eremite Axe Vanguard– Melee

Third wave

Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Floor 9 Eremites
EnemyDescription
Eremite Desert Clearwater– Melee
– Hydro damage
– -20% resistance to physical attacks, -50% to hydro attacks when stunned
Eremite Sword-dancer– Melee
– Physical damage
– -20% resistance to physical attacks
Eremite Crossbow– Ranged
– Physical and dendro damage
– -20% resistance to physical attacks

Chamber 2

The second chamber only comprises of the usual hilichurls, mitachurls, samachurls and abyss mages.

Challenge Target

  • Remaining challenge time longer than 60 sec.
  • Remaining challenge time longer than 180 sec.
  • Remaining challenge time longer than 300 sec.

First Half

First Wave

Genshin Impact Hilichurl
EnemyDescription
Blazing Axe Mitachurl– Physical damage, pyro when infused
– 30% resistance to physical attacks
Hilichurl Berserker– Physical and pyro damage
– 10% resistance to all elemental and physical attacks
Cryo Hilichurl Grenadier– Cryo damage
– 10% resistance to all elemental and physical attacks
Electro Hilichurl Grenadier– Electro damage
– 10% resistance to all elemental and physical attacks

Cryo Hilichurl Grenadier and Electro Hilichurl Grenadier should be taken out first before Hilichurl Berserker. Killing the squishy ones first before this massive Mitachurl makes the fight easier, so you won’t have to deal with more attacks from multiple sources all at the same time.

Second Wave

Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss Floor 9 Chamber 2
EnemyDescription
Geo Samachurl– Physical and geo damage
– 50% resistance to Geo
– Builds Rock Pillar
Pyro Hilichurl Shooter– Ranged
– Pyro damage
– 10% resistance to all elemental and physical attacks
Cryo Hilichurl Shooter– Ranged
– Cryo damage
– 10% resistance to all elemental and physical attacks
Rock Shield Wall Mitachurl– Physical and geo damage
– 30% resistance to physical attacks
– Puts up a shield that can only be destroyed by Geo attacks, Claymore and Overload

Geo samachurl constructs a rock pillar that it and its other company can stand on, giving melee characters a hard time hitting them. It would be a nuisance especially if you do not have a geo character or claymore with you. With that being said, this should be your priority, among others. Next, get rid of hilichurls before destroying mitachurls.


Lastly, use a claymore, geo attack, or trigger overload (electro + pyro) to bring down the Rock Shieldwall Mitachurl.

Third Wave

Genshin Impact Hilichurls
EnemyDescription
Wooden Shieldwall Mitachurl– Physical damage
– 30% resistance to physical attacks
– Pyro destroys the shield, while activating freeze allows your attacks to pass through it.
Wooden Shield Hilichurl Guard– Physical damage
– 10% resistance to all elemental and physical attacks
Hilichurl Grenadier– Physical and pyro damage
– 10% resistance to all elemental and physical attacks

It is worth noting that these hilichurls and mitachurls have their own wooden shield for protection. That said, you might end up wasting an ability if it did manage to block it. For wooden shields, Pyro attacks are recommended to shred it down. In relation to our suggested team composition earlier, Freeze composition could work too. While under freeze effect, any abilities and attacks can pass through the shield even when it’s up.

Fourth Wave

Genshin Impact Hilichurls
EnemyDescription
Cryo Samachurl– Physical and cryo damage
– 50% resistance to cryo attacks
– Summons an ice pillar
Crackling Axe Mitachurl– Physical and electro (infused) damage
– 30% resistance to electro
Cryo Hilichurl Shooter– Ranged
– Pyro damage
– 10% resistance to all elemental and physical attacks
Electro Hilichurl Shooter– Ranged
– Electro damage
– 10% resistance to all elemental and physical attacks

With a similar concept to the second wave, remove the cryo samachurl before it can place ice pillars. If you can attack the Samachurl and the Hilichurl Shooters simultaneously, please do as they may come as a nuisance.

Second Half

First wave

Genshin Impact Slimes
EnemyDescription
Dendro Samachurl– Physical damage
– 50% resistance to dendro attacks
– Summons thorny vines and dendro field
Hydro Slime– Hydro attacks
– Immune to Hydro
– Applies hydro to themselves
Pyro Slime– Pyro attacks
– Immune to Pyro
– Applies Pyro to themselves
Electro Hilichurl Shooter– Ranged
– Electro damage
– 10% resistance to all elemental and physical attacks

Like the rest, you’d want to prioritize the dendro samachurl. It may not be able to call out pillars, but it can summon an area that applies a dendro field and thorny vines across the region. While doing so, Pyro and Hydro slimes can simultaneously apply their respective elemental attacks, potentially triggering vaporize, burning, bloom and other reactions.

Second Wave

Genshin Impact Hydro Abyss Mages
EnemyDescription
Hydro Abyss Mage– Hydro Damage
– Protected by a shield of its respective element
– Shield is immune to Hydro
– Shield is weakest against Cryo
– Calls upon a water bubble that traps its opponents

Initially, anemo crowd controls would not work for abyss mages. Prior to smashing it, shields must be taken down first. There are several ways to take it down, but cryo works better than everything else. It will not only shred its shield but also freeze them into place, rendering them useless for a very short duration. During the process, be careful of their attacks, especially the bubble as it will enclose you into it.

Genshin Impact  Bubble

Once the shield is off, taunt or apply crowd controls such as freeze before they can gather enough energy to form their shield again.

Chamber 3

The last chamber resembles the first one with the same type of enemies. Except, they are stronger and you’re only given less time to receive three stars.
Decimating the floating shroom should be out of your problem if you’ve got a ranged character that can kill off them while in mid-air.

Challenge Target

  • Remaining challenge time longer than 180 sec.
  • Remaining challenge time longer than 300 sec.
  • Remaining challenge time longer than 420 sec.

First half

First Wave

Genshin Impact Fungus
EnemyDescription
Winged Dendroshroom– Physical and pyro damage
– 40% resistance to dendro attacks
Floating Dendro Fungus– Dendro damage
– 25% resistance to dendro, 10% for the rest of the elements
Whirling Electro Fungus– Physical and electro damage
– 20% resistance to dendro and electro

Take down Winged Dendroshroom first before anything else. Fortunately, it does not fly high enough like Ruin Drake: Skywatch. Even mid-ranged attacks like Xingqiu’s Fatal Rainscreen can reach them.

Second Wave

Genshin Impact Fungus
EnemyDescription
Grounded Hydroshroom– Physical and hydro damage
– 30% resistance to hydro and dendro
Floating Dendro Fungus– Dendro damage
– 25% resistance to dendro, 10% for the rest of the elements
Whirling Electro Fungus– Physical and electro damage
– 20% resistance to dendro and electro

In this case, it might be best to focus on the smaller ones first, as they are easier to eliminate. Run towards the Floating Dendro Fungus, then to Whirling Electro Fungus before finishing the Grounded Hydroshroom.

Second Half

Genshin Impact Eremites
Genshin Impact Eremites
EnemyDescription
Eremite Sunfrost– Cryo damage
– -20% resistance to physical
– 50% resistance to cryo when stunned
Eremite Linebreaker– Physical damage
– -20% resistance to physical
Eremite Daythunder– Electro damage
– -20% resistance to physical
– 50% resistance to cryo when stunned

The last wave of enemies only consists of three Eremites. The order of priority will be Sunfrost, Daythunder then Linebreaker. However, they can be dealt easily with anemo cc or freeze all at once.


Spiral Abyss Floor 9 is the easiest of all, but this may come as a challenge for lower ranks. Nevertheless, there is no need to fear as there are several strategies like the ones mentioned in our guide that you can take advantage of for your next Spiral Abyss Floor 9 run. Try these out and tell us how it turns out in the comments.
