Primal Obelisks are scattered all over the Great Red Sand and Hadramaveth deserts of Sumeru in Genshin Impact. They represent an exploration puzzle for players to find and solve, with 10 of them being added in Update 3.1 and further 8 in Update 3.4. Every obelisk has a combination of six Sacred Seals that are scattered around their area, which are used to restore the obelisks and reveal Precious Chests. There are also two achievements tied to finding the Primal Obelisks, called A Well-Trained Archaeologist and Parvezravan Khwarrah. If you’re wondering where to find all 18 Primal Obelisks in Genshin Impact, we have prepared this guide to help you out.
