This event takes place in the Realms of Guile and War domains. Moreover, you can use trial characters to aid you in battle. However, there are certain mechanics for each domain that you have to consider before deploying the team you want.

How to unlock Perilous Trail in Genshin Impact

To unlock Perilous Trail, Travelers need to be at least at AR 28. Moreover, they need to finish the Archon Quest – Chapter 3: Act 1 and the Spiritstone Quest. If you haven’t finished the Spiritstone Quest, it is available through the Chasm Delvers questline.

In Perilous Trail, Travelers team up with familiar characters like Itto. It is recommended that you finish Itto’s story quest first so you can fully immerse yourself in the Perilous Trail quest. However, this is not required so if you plan on playing through this event as quick as possible, you can just focus on completing the prerequisite quests.
