How to break the seal in the Stormterror’s lair on ‘Genshin Impact’


Before players can defeat the Stormterror Dvalin in Genshin Impact, they must first break the seal to enter his lair. Here’s how you can do that.

Epic dragon fights are always at the forefront of every RPG game out there. And Genshin Impact is no different from the others in that aspect. In Mondstadt, there is one dragon that players have to contend with and that is the Stormterror Dvalin.

About the Stormterror on Genshin Impact

Dvalin was once one of the protectors of the Four Winds but abandoned his duties after becoming disillusioned with the city he once loved. He has powerful Anemo powers and is a force to reckon with in the world of Teyvat.

The Abyss Order, wanting to take advantage of Dvalin’s distaste for humankind, manipulated the dragon and tried to turn him into a War Entity. Because of this, the Traveler and his companions have no choice but to subdue Dvalin and free him from the Abyss Order’s corruption.

To do that, players would first need to break the seal into the Stormterror’s lair.

Breaking the seal

Dvalin’s lair is surrounded by many ruins and is filled with enemies. At the center of these ruins are powerful barriers of wind, a testament to the Stormterror’s elemental powers. Players won’t be able to get through to the dragon unless these barriers are deactivated.

To do this, players must climb around the large ruin at the center and reach the altar at the top. Players should expect multiple fights and puzzling terrain before they can reach the altar.

The altars are actually devices called Light Actuators. Interacting with it will trigger a conversation and instructions to grab the nearby glowing prismatic pyramid on the ground. Players would then need to place the pyramid on the altar and this will trigger a cutscene revealing the locations of the other Light Actuators.

Finding the Light Actuators

It’s not difficult to find the Light Actuators because all three of them will be marked on the map after the cutscene. There is one of these devices near the first Light Actuator and players would simply need to jump down a nearby hole and head straight to the next altar.

Each Light Actuator will have a nearby prismatic pyramid. It is up to the player to find them all at once first before heading to the Light Actuators. Finding some of these pyramids can be tricky as sometimes they would be behind a wind barrier. All players need to do is find higher ground. They can use elevated spots to glide above the barriers and into the glowing pyramids.

Once all the Light Actuators are activated, a seal will release itself, opening the way to the dungeon. There Genshin Impact players can finally face the Stormterror Dvalin.
