Genshin Impact: Abilities and weaknesses of Ruin Serpent explained

Players will need the Lumenstone Adjuvant to fight effectively against Ruin Serpent. When players engage the Ruin Serpent with their Lumenstone Adjuvant equipped, the energy stored in the gadget will be reduced to 2.

Fortunately, there is an incredible hack to bypass this, all players have to do is equip the Lumenstone Adjuvant after the fight starts. This method has been proven to by-pass the initial energy drain.

Apart from slithering around the area and charging towards the characters, Ruin Serpent will often summon dark mud called Oozing Concentration. Ruin Serpent can draw power from Oozing Concentration to perform more powerful attacks. Players can choose to clear these concentrations using the Blooming Light of their Lumenstone gadget once they have spawned. However, there is a more effective way to do it.

Clear the oozing concentration with the help of their Lumenstone Adjuvant gadget while Ruin Serpent is drawing power from them to temporarily paralyze the boss. This will give players a good amount of time to defeat the boss or reduce a huge chunk of its health.

Best team composition to defeat Ruin Serpent

Here is a list of Do's and Don'ts that players need to follow to defeat the Ruin Serpent effectively:

  • Avoid Physical Team, Use Elemental based teams instead
  • Team must have a Claymore or Geo user to break crystals to recharge the Lumenstone Adjuvant gadget
  • Team should have atleast a healer or shielder

Team composition does not matter as long as players have hard-hitting DPS or well-built characters in their accounts. However, for beginners who are still collecting new characters and have yet to build their characters completely, they need to follow well-balanced teams to defeat Ruin Serpent in Genshin Impact.
