Where can players find abyss mages in Genshin Impact? Abyss Mages are monsters part of the abyss order, a villain group players will encounter in the game. They can be tricky opponents, but defeating them is the only way players can get their hands on the ley line ascension items. Without the Ley Line items, many players will find that a good chunk of items won't be able to ascend to a new level. So, where should players start looking?

The best place to find abyss mages is the nation of Liyue. There are places in Mondstadt where they appear, but they're significantly more prevalent in Liyue. The area directly west of Liyue Harbor and the mountains in the northwest of Liyue are the best places to go hunting. Abyss Mages respawn the day after you've defeated them, so they're relatively farmable.

Keep in mind there are three types of abyss mages. Pyro, Hydro, and Cryo, which each do different elemental attacks and have the corresponding elemental shield. It's good to have an electro character on the team for hunting abyss mages, as electro abilities are effective against Pyro, Hydro, and Cryo shields. Once you know where to look, and who to bring, all that's left is to begin the hunt.
