Genshin Impact has its players fighting all sorts of monsters, which can be some of the most enjoyable experiences in the game. In this guide, we will take you through how to beat Genshin Impact Dire Straits.

You’ll have to deal with a large number of enemies at once, all while on a timer that requires you to be as fast as possible. 

So, let’s take a look at how to beat Genshin Impact Dire Straits!

How to complete Dire Straits in Genshin Impact

Dire Straits is the most difficult setting for the Hidden Strife Challenge. To complete the challenge, you must:

  • Finish it within 150 seconds or less.
  • Use 6 Elemental Outbursts.
  • Defeat 2 Powerful enemies.

The challenge is located on the far east coast, which is called the Falcon Coast. To start it, simply go to the floating sand ball found on the shoreline.

A good team setup for finishing the challenge on the hardest difficulty mode includes Xiao, Kamisato Ayaka, Zhongli and Raiden Shogun.

The buffs that you will get for this challenge are:

  • Elemental Burst Damage will increase by 50%
  • After using 6 Elemental Bursts, you will obtain the Afterimaged Might
  • You will encounter more and more powerful enemies after you have obtained the Afterimaged Might

The fight challenge includes monsters such as the Ruin Destroyer, Ruin Scout, Ruin Hunter, and Ruin Cruiser, as you might expect from Genshin Impact. The biggest problem you might face in this challenge is the timer. The 150 seconds are very low, and you will need to use everything you have on the harder enemies.

The harder enemies will have tons of HP, so focus all your powerful stuff on them. When they appear, you should only focus on them and nothing else. Follow the team setup above, and you’ll be able to do the maximum amount of damage with them.
