In Genshin Impact, Vimana Agama: Deve Delver is the fourth and final quest in the Vimana Agama: Dev Delver World Quest series. This quest starts automatically as soon as you complete the Vimana Agama: Jazari’s Chapter quest, and sees you continuing to mess with dangerous underground ruins and relics that should probably be left alone. It takes place in Sumeru or, to be more precise, mostly it takes place beneath Sumeru, in the region’s complex cave system.

How to investigate the underground ruins

Starting from the large vertical chamber inside the Ruin Golem, go to the bottom floor and head west, where you’ll see a new tunnel has opened up. Follow that tunnel outside to meet up with Ararycan, then glide down into the nearby hole. The way out of the hole, and to the next marker, is above the bottom, on the northwest side. Use the Four-Leaf Sigil to get over to the Teleport Waypoint, and unlock it. Use a couple more Four-Leaf Sigils to get to the west end of the cavern, then continue southwest along the tunnel until you reach Dev’s Cavern.

Defeat the first pair of Abyss Mages right in front of you, then use the chain of Four-Leaf Sigils on the right to get up to a tunnel that leads up and around to the left. At the end of this tunnel, glide over the core, then follow another chain of Four-Leaf Sigils around to the left where they lead to another two Abyss Mages — one Electro and one Hydro. Defeat them, then use more Four-Leaf Sigils to get over to the third and final pair of Abyss Mages (an Electro and a Cryo) on a raised ledge in the southwest corner of the cavern.

How to defeat The Thing From Below, and shut down the core

Use a couple of Four-Leaf Sigils to get up to the core. When you get close, The Thing From Below (also known as The Blazing Thunder of the Dark Depths; also also known as an Abyss Lector: Violet Lightning) will appear, and you’ll have to defeat it. Surprisingly, this boss does not have high resistance to Electro attacks (in fact, it has no high resistance or vulnerability to a particular kind of damage), but the shield it casts when it’s close to death is completely immune to Electro. The fastest way to destroy that shield is to use Pyro, Cryo, or Dendro attacks. One weakness of this boss is that it basically doesn’t move, making it really easy to get headshots using a ranged character.

Use the Four-Leaf Sigils to get back up to the core, and turn off the device, then leave the underground ruins via the tunnel leading west (again, use Four-Leaf Sigils to get up there). Once outside, talk to Ararycan one more time to complete the Vimana Agama: Dev Delver quest.
