“Least favorite abyss so far, 0/10”- Genshin Impact community reacts to hardest Spiral Abyss Floor 12 challenge yet
The common sentiment from the Genshin Impact community towards the latest Spiral Abyss Floor 12 challenge is largely negative. Many Travelers hate the perceived difficulty of this updated content. For those who don't know, there is a time limit involved for beating the Spiral Abyss and getting a certain number of stars. You're incentivized to complete this content quickly to earn as many Primogems as possible.
Twitter user @zajef77 eloquently said:
"Least favorite abyss so far, 0/10, never put three melee heralds in the same wave again."
This tweet specifically refers to the second wave of 12-1's second half. In that bout, Genshin Impact players must fight against two Abyss Heralds: Frost Falls and one Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents. However, these enemies aren't the only thing causing chaos in the community, as some other waves have also been problematic.
Genshin Impact reactions to updated 3.7 Spiral Abyss Floor 12
This Twitch clip of Enviosity rage quitting at the last battle of the new Spiral Abyss is both amusing and relatable. He nearly defeats the Iniquitous Baptist before deciding to yell and AFK for a bit. It doesn't take long for the streamer to quit the game and show himself shutting down the computer.
Unsurprisingly, many gamers have expressed disapproval of the new Spiral Abyss on social media. Many players have called it "the worst" and even used specific criticisms, as shown in the tweet about "Lvl 100 beasts." Fighting two waves of a Consecrated Horned Crocodile and Consecrated Fanged Beast is quite unpopular online.
Even if you beat that half, you will be stuck with the aforementioned Iniquitous Baptist in the next fight. Notably, most Floor 12s don't get nearly as much criticism as the one discussed in this article.
The anxiety quote stated in one of the tweets shown above is a reference to what Genshin Impact developers stated in an interview:
"The Spiral Abyss is one of the most effective ways [for] players [to] test out their party composition and combat strength. If we design another type of permanent endgame that is similar to the Spiral Abyss, it might end up creating excessive anxiety for our players--not everyone is interested in Musk Reef."
Floor 12's current lineup is arguably much more stress-inducing than past ones. Also, some Genshin Impact players find this content boring as they describe it as more of a DPS check than a skill check. The final tweet shown here also describes how some players feel like the current difficulty of Floor 12 is just to incentivize whaling.
Some people find Floor 12 to be too brutal to be worth doing. A few lesser-skilled Genshin Impact players even plan to skip Floor 11. Unfortunately for them, the current Spiral Abyss phase is expected to last for nearly a month. While they have ample time to clear this content, the stress caused by doing so might not be worth it for some players, especially just for a few Primogems.
The new update barely came out, and most of the playerbase is already voicing how much they hate Floor 12.
