How to Unlock the Altar of Mirages Domain in Genshin Impact?

Where does this door lead to? Hmm...

by Amitesh Dhar


The Altar of Mirages is a brand new domain that was introduced in Genshin Impact as a part of the Sumeru update. Similar to other hidden domains that were added as a part of this update, you won’t be able to access the Altar of Mirages from the very beginning. Instead, you will have to complete an entire questline before you can access the area.

The questline that we’re referring to here is known as the Golden Slumber questline. You can start this quest by speaking to Bonifaz, an NPC located in Aaru Village in Genshin Impact. After you’ve completed the quest, here’s what you need to do.

Unlocking the Altar of Mirages Domain in Genshin Impact

Once you’ve completed the Golden Slumber questline, make your way to the underground teleport waypoint that can be found to the east of King Deshret. The waypoint in question is highlighted in the map below.


Use this teleport waypoint to get into the underground structure and from there make your way into the room where you had previously solved the Primal Torches puzzle. You should see an open passage to your right. Make your way through that passage, and then go to the end of the room that the passage leads into. There you should come across a mechanism that will help you open the door to the Altar of Mirages. Jump through this portal, and you will enter the room.

Similar to many domains in Genshin Impact, the Altar or Mirages is a single clear domain, meaning you can clear and loot it only once. You will receive the following items as rewards for clearing this room:

  • Primogems x40
  • Adventure EXP x500
  • Dendro Sigil x5
  • Gilded Dreams artifact (4-star) x1
  • Guide to Praxis x2
  • Hero’s Wit x2
  • Mystic Enhancement Ore x4
  • Mora x30,000

An additional precious chest spawns in this room as well that rewards you with the following items:

  • Primogems x10
  • Adventure EXP x30
  • Dendro Sigil x3

In a nutshell, the Altar of Mirages in Genshin Impact is a treasure trove of resources. Do remember to complete it as soon as you can!
