Spiral Abyss is currently the toughest domain in Genshin Impact which challenges players extensively, but having these 5 characters will greatly ease the difficulty. Due to their unique strengths and versatility, these 5 are the pick of the bunch.
After reaching Adventure Rank 50 in Genshin Impact, players won't face much struggle in clearing domains and bosses. But there is one special domain, Spiral Abyss, which resides way above in difficulty scale.
In Spiral Abyss, players can expect all types of enemies present in the game who may come solo and even with some bosses at the same time. The time bound in all these floors further worsens the situation.
5 Best characters for clearing Spiral Abyss in Genshin Impact
The ideal team composition in Genshin Impact for Spiral Abyss should contain the main DPS alongside a healer, shielder and support character for reactions. However, players should prepare their team to face any kind of challenge, but having some specific characters in the team makes it way easier to turn the game to the players' side.
#1 - Venti
The Anemo Archon is a god when it comes to crowd control. With his Elemental Burst, Venti can create a huge Stormeye that pulls nearby enemies to a particular spot making it easy to attack all of them at once.
Coupled with that, Stormeye continuously deals Anemo damage and it also reacts with other elements causing Swirl damage. After the Elemental Mastery buff in the 1.6 update, Venti has become more robust with his Swirl damage. All of these put together deal massive damage to the enemies thus making Venti an excellent character against a horde of enemies.

#2 - Zhongli
One of the most broken characters, the Geo Archon can provide an extremely sturdy shield in critical situations. Zhongli's shield is currently the strongest in Genshin Impact and provides significant advantage to players in Spiral Abyss where multiple bosses will be attacking simultaneously.
Apart from providing a solid defense, the shield also prevents the character from being tossed around during enemy attacks. Zhongli's Elemental Burst drops a literal meteor on a wide AoE, petrifying enemies and causing massive Geo damage. In conclusion, Zhongli truly holds his title of Archon and having him in the team makes the whole game way easier.

This makes the wind spirit similar to the respective elemental hypostasis dealing continuous damage to enemies.
Sucrose can share Elemental mastery with teammates and debuff enemies when paired with a 4-pc Viridescent Venerer set, allowing players to deal maximum Elemental reaction damage.
