As King Deshret falls into despair, the former Archon Dendro of Genshin Impact decides to part ways with the Scarlet King and build his own civilization on another side of Sumeru. This place, now known as the present Genshin Impact sumeru, is thriving and filled with lush jungle and life. Meanwhile, the desert is barren, hot and lifeless. The desert people’s jealousy combined with the way Akademiya uses the desert as a place of exile causes deep resentment towards Archon Dendro’s subjects.
Many people in the desert remain loyal believers in the Scarlet King. They believe that one day he will be resurrected and war can be waged against the Archon Dendro. Desert people who yearn for a better life can’t help but carry this hatred wherever they go. They venture deep into the domains and ruins to catch a glimpse of the hope that the Scarlet King may one day return, where many of them have become lost and stranded on their journey. There are many places where the Hermits are lost, and the Altar of Mirages in Genshin Impact is one of them.
How to Unlock Mirage Altar in Genshin Impact
To unlock the Mirage Altar domain in Genshin Impact, players must first progress through the Golden Slumber questline until they get their first clearance level.
Next, use the underground teleport point east of King Deshret’s mausoleum.
After teleporting, continue forward to the large chamber where players had to solve the Primal Torches puzzle.
From there, turn right and enter the open passage.
Now the players have to go to the other side of the room. There is a four-leaf seal that can speed up the process.
Use the mechanism to open the door, then jump across the open floor. This will lead players to the Altar of Mirages domain in Genshin Impactand from there people can use the building as a teleport point.
