How to defeat Fellflower in Genshin Impact

Knowing all the mechanics of the Fellflower in Genshin Impact will help you beat it faster. And although it’s a part of the ongoing event, you can repeat this task when you are done with the quest.

Phase 1. Break its shield

In the first phase of the Fellflower boss fight, you will need to break its defense by destroying the surrounding Arcane Fruits. Here’s a breakdown of everything to take notice of.

1. Arcane Fruits

These look like large red crystals at a time and you must destroy them to break the defense. Notice that they will have some attack patterns such as firing projectiles or crashing the ground.

Recommended using Archers.

Shoot The Arcane Fruits
Use ranged characters and shoot the Arcane Fruits down.

2. Arcane Essence 

After you destroy an Arcane Fruit, about three small crystals called Arcan Essence will be released. Quickly pick them up to prevent the foe from recovering its shield.

Picking the Essence can reduce the character’s HP, so make sure to use a Healer in this stage.

3. Fellflower Attacks 

From time to time, the Cryo Whopperflower will launch these attacks:

  • Avalanche: Ice will crash down on the white circles that show up on the ground.
  • Rolling Snowballs: 3 Snowballs will be summoned, rolling towards to hit you.
  • Cryo Slime: At least a big Cryo Slime will spawn during the combat.

Recommended using preferably Pyro characters like Xiangling, Hu Tao, or Diluc.

The first mission of how to defeat Fellflower in Genshin Impact is to break its shield.

Phase 2: Attack the shrunk Fellflower

Once you have fully depleted the shield, the Fellflower will shrink, starting the second phase in fighting this Cryo Whopperflower boss.

You can nuke it, but don’t forget to be alarmed by its attacks.

  • Snowball Throw: The boss throws numerous snowballs in quick succession.
  • Flower Turret: The bulb follows players around, then shoots projectiles.
  • Burrow: The boss will go underground before popping back up.
