Where to find Thunder Manifestation

The Thunder Manifestation locates on Seirai Island, on the platform that created high up in the air. This boss fight will not be available until the Seirai Stormchasers quest ends.

You can obtain the quest from Katheryne at Inazuma Adventurer's Guild. She will then send you to Seirai to assist two adventurers to clear up the ranging storm on the island.

With some dialog and a number of easy puzzles, players will make the Thunder Manifestation area appear in the air. Apart from following the waypoint close by, you will have to fight the Thunder Manifestation for the first time to complete this quest.

How to defeat Thunder Manifestation Genshin Impact

Once the player has managed to unlock Thunder Manifestation, they can battle anytime they want. The boss can be a tad irritating to cope with as it has aggressive attacks and will aim directly at you. To defeat Thunder Manifestation, you have to focus on how to deal with its powerful moves as well as choosing the most suitable team composition.

Thunder Manifestation weakness and capabilities

  • Electro square: As it will follow the player on the field, you need to continuously run away from the attack. Its massive damage can quickly defeat your character if trapped inside.
  • Electro walls: Watch out as the boss will summon two separate electro walls that instantly close in on you. Your character can be killed easily if hit by both of those and touching either of them can lead to large damage.
  • Blinking: Thunder Manifestation teleports itself continuously anywhere on the battlefield.
  • Diving: The boss usually dives towards the player twice in a row. A box would also appear that unveils its trajectory. Make sure to avoid the boss when it does the diving.
  • Rolling: The Thunder Manifestation will curl up its wings and then spin towards the players. It's easily avoided.

  • Strike Probes: Thunder Manifestation Genshin Impact would fly higher and conjure multiple Electro sigils in the air. When activated, they will launch area Electro damage around it.
  • Lightning Rod Prison: It singles out players with a homing lightning prison, then unleashes a constant and focused torrent of lightning attacks on the target. You move, it moves. A shield will be a big help here if you know how to make it last longer during this barrage.
  • Lightning Storm: Be quick and avoid the widespread lightning storm in the zone as it tries to hit you. Sprinting periodically to stay away from their landing spots will do.

Moreover, this boss can send for lighting to strike the arena, has an AoE attack and multiple ranged attacks. What you will want to focus on is dodging and striking on the Thunder Manifestation after it has done attacking you.


Recommended characters to fight Thunder Manifestation

Follow these criteria for the best characters to equip in this quest.

1. Cryo and Pyro DPS

It cannot be more obvious to avoid using Electro characters for this boss fight. The Thunder Manifestation is purely Electro-based and it's immune to every kind of Electro damage.

As a matter of fact, the Overload elemental reaction will stack up and makes attacks against the boss more viable. Also, this enemy usually moves fast and floats around which makes melee attacks mostly useless.

Therefore, the best Genshin Impact characters you need to defeat Thunder Manifestation Genshin Impact are Pyro and Cryo units using ranged attacks. Yoimiya, Eula, and Ganyu will be the excellent picks for the fight.

Pyro and Cryo ranged characters are the most recommended for the DPS role.

2. A Shielder

The fight with this boss is full of fast attacks resulting in the characters running out of Stamina. Re-gaining Stamina by moving around also makes your life at risk.

That's why utilizing a shield-generating character will be more viable. This method helps you be more relaxed while tanking attacks.

You may use either Noelle, Diona, or Zhongli.

Make sure to include shielders in your team.

3. A Healer

In case the enemy chews up your shield too fast, keeping a healer in your team is due. These helpers will make sure you get some emergency backup when in need: Bennett, Barbara, Jean, Diona.

For the unknown, Bennett is one of the most favorite characters for Spiral Abyss. You just cannot underestimate his potential.

Meanwhile, one way that players can make the boss fight pass much faster is to fight the boss in co-op. While one player takes on the aggro, the other will focus on hitting the boss and damaging it. Make sure to use food and Insulation Potions to nullify some damage if possible.
