Genshin Impact - Skeld Fight

The Chasm introduces new side quests to Genshin Impact in its 2.6 update. One of these side quests is opening the “Locked Gate in the Nameless Ruins.” To do this, you need to find all of the Orbs of the Blue Depths. In this guide, we’ll tell you how and where to get all nine Orbs.

To obtain all nine Orbs of the Blue Depths, travelers need to defeat nine Shadowy Husks in Genshin Impact’s The Chasm. After defeating a Shadowy Husk, it will drop one Orb which gets automatically added to your inventory after the fight. There is no required order to defeat these Shadowy Husks. However, we highly advise that you take note of the location and its name. This helps to make sure that you won’t mix them up.

First Orb of the Blue Depths – Edgetho: Breaker of the Oath of Silence

Look to the east side of the area until you see a rectangular room popping out from the wall. If you use Geo abilities or attack the cracked wall with a Claymore, it will break and reveal Buliwyf inside the room.
