Genshin Impact: How to Find and Break the Barrier in the Sacrificial Offering Quest
Genshin Impact players often stumble onto small quests and interactions in the world that lead to larger stories. In Inazuma, players discovered a chain of world quests in the small Konda village called the Sacrificial Offering. Initially, it didn't seem like anything special but it unfolded to be one of the most iconic world quests in the game. With intricate puzzles, hidden shrines, and a barrier, this quest demands sharp wits and strategic thinking to complete. For players that have just reached Inazuma, and for older players that have only just discovered this quest, here is a guide on how to find and break the barrier in the Sacrificial Offering quest.
Initiating the Sacrificial Offering Quest
The journey begins at the Abandoned Shrine northeast of Konda Village. Here, players delve into the rich history of the shrine, setting the stage for the challenges ahead. Gather your courage, for the Sacrificial Offering quest is not for the faint of heart.
Pursuing Mysterious Shadows
Players must look around the area, finding and interacting with Mysterious Shadows. They are near the shrine, Fox Statues, smaller shrines, rooftops, and the shade of a tree. Keep an eye out for these elusive figures in the following locations:
In front of the shrine
Near a smaller shrine
On the roof of a distant building
Under the branches of a tree near the Fox Statues
Once all Shadows are gathered, players are rewarded with three chests, progressing the quest.
Seeking Professional Help at Narukami Shrine
Paimon wisely suggests seeking aid at the Narukami Shrine. Here, players get the Memento Lens, a tool crucial for progressing through the quest. Use the lens to scan Kitsune statues, unveiling phrases essential for the next steps.
Reciting Sacred Words
Return to the shrine and recite the sacred words in front of the Sky Kitsune statue. The order is vital; players must chant:
"In the name of Narukami's envoy."
"And of the Hakushin bloodline."
"Bring forth the fried tofu!"
Completing this step opens the gateway to the final stage of the quest.
Cleansing The Barrier in Chinju Forest
Corrupted Barrier Location:
Head east of the Ioroi statue towards the shore to discover the corrupted barrier.
Trigger a cutscene to reveal the barrier's location hidden in the cliffside.
Interact with the first shrine pillar to activate the puzzle after receiving a ward from Ioroi.
Assign the order of shrine pillars based on the constellation that appears.
Set the positions correctly to spawn the miniboss "Ochimusha."
The fight with the Onimucha is a little hard but shouldn't be a problem with a good healer and team.
Successfully defeating Ochimusha grants 30 primogems and 3 Heroes Wit.
