A Genshin Impact player managed to fully complete the anime RPG Spiral Abyss challenge with 36 stars after playing just 16 days on a new account. Earning all 36 stars in Spiral Abyss is an achievement that many high-rank adventurers are still striving for after playing for almost two years, so achieving it in just 16 days is incredible.
A Chinese player named Lugufan (陆孤凡) is the one who pulled this off, and a recent Reddit thread contains some translations and details of the impressive run, including his grinding methods, team compositions, pulls, and more.
Although it all happened in just 16 days, Lugufan spent many hours exploring almost 100% of the map and unlocking 450 Achievements to earn around 37,000 Primogems for Wishes. These Cousins were then used to obtain Ganyu and Kokomi, the current five-star flag characters. Leftover primogems were used to refresh yourself when grinding artifacts and ascension materials after reaching quest rank 45.
Lugufan scored 36 stars with a Freeze team of Ganyu, Kokomi, Sucrose, and Rosaria, and a Hyperbloom team that included Dendro Traveler, Dori, Xingqiu, and Sayu.
Redditor zephyredx translated some takeaways from Lugufan’s video of Spiral Abyss’s final run into bilibili. The main takeaway seems to be that the artifact requirements to complete Spiral Abyss are much lower than expected. Ganyu had a good Flower, but many artifacts remained at level four or below. Also, as you may know, the safe is a lifesaver when it comes to farming artifacts, which is why Lugufan used it for Viridescent Venerer sets while mainly shredding Blizzard Strayer for Ganyu and Heart of Depth for Xingqiu.
All that said, Lugufan’s knowledge of the game and its characters was the most important factor in completing this seemingly impossible task. For those still looking to get all 36 stars, perhaps Genshin Impact version 3.1 is your chance, as new character banners and free anniversary Primogems are on the way.
