Sacrificial Offering is a World Quest in Genshin Impact, and the second part of the Sacred Sakura Cleaning Ritual questline. It's one of the many world quests players can find in the newly added region, Inazuma.
Here's a step-by-step guide for how to complete the Sacrificial Offering quest.
Genshin Impact Sacrificial Offering: How to Complete
To begin this quest, players must have first completed the quest "A Strange Story in Konda."
You'll receive the prompt "Go to the abandoned shrine northeast of Konda Village." The shrine in question is at the location shown below, slightly south of Mt. Yougou.
Once you're there, you'll see a Mysterious Shadow at the shrine. Talk to her, and she'll teleport to a different location. Continue looking around the shrine for more Mysterious Shadows, and talk to them until all three of them have gathered around the three kitsune statues to the east of the shrine. Look closely for the shadows - one of them will be on the roof of the shrine.
Once you've gathered all three shadows, they'll disappear and leave three chests around the kitsune statues, and an item in the center. Grab the item, then head to the Grand Narukami Shrine.
Talk to the NPC at the Grand Narukami Shrine, and she'll give you a Memento Lens. Equip the Lens from the Gadgets tab in your inventory, and go back to the abandoned shrine. Use the Lens to investigate the small kitsune statues that glow blue, and they'll each show you a memory.
The statues' memories will tell you the sacred words you need to perform the rite. Head to the Sky Kitsune statue to the east of the shrine, and recite the words in the correct order. The statue will then give you a ward.
Once you grab the ward, you'll need to find the barrier. Find the entrance to a cave near the small lake to the south of the shrine; the barrier is inside. Then, like in the Konda Village quest, use the ward to destroy the barrier. You'll need to solve a puzzle similar to the previous puzzle, and then fight a mini-boss.
After you're done, speak to Kazari to complete the quest. You'll receive 350 Adventure EXP, 40 Primogems, 30,000 Mora, 3 Hero's Wit, and 6 Mystic Enhancement Ore as a reward.
This quest is only one of many quests players will come across when traversing Inazuma, a region full of secrets and surprises at every turn. Check out our guides for The Ritou Road quest and the Sakura Arborism quest to get you started!
