To unlock the Altar of Mirages, you need to have your Scarlet Sand Slate’s clearance level near max. For this to happen, you need to complete the full Golden Slumber questline.

You can also start the Double Evidence quest, as it will give you another level of clearance. However, you won’t need to complete it to unlock this area.


2) Teleport to King Deshret’s Mausoleum

Once you’ve leveled up your Scarlet Sand Slate’s clearance, you can activate many mechanics found in the Sumeru Desert Ruins. These mechanisms will open doors and other hidden areas. One can be found just outside the Altar of Mirages domain.

Simply teleport to the nearby waypoint and head to where the estate is on the map. From there, you’ll find a mechanism that you can open with your Sand Slate. All you have to do is interact with it.


3) Scroll down to the domain

Once you’ve opened the door, you need to jump through the massive hole in the middle of the floor to reach the Mirage Altar area.

Just jump into the hole and make sure to activate your glider before you hit the ground, as the fall is quite long. Once you get to the ground, head to the estate and interact with it to unlock it.


4) Complete the domain
