A very strange machine.

Maguu Kenki is a new boss that can be found on the central island in Genshin Impact. This automated combat machine can be a tough fight and was originally added to the game as part of the Midsummer Island Adventure event. With the event over, and Genshin Impact 2.0 releasing the islands of Inazuma, the Maguu Kenki has now moved to a new location.

Players who are looking for the Maguu Kenkin will now need to make their way south of Serpent’s Head on Yashiori Island. After defeating the Maguu Kenki, players can claim their rewards from a Trounce Blossom using 40 Original Resin.

Attacks and Strategy

The Maguu Kenki has a number of attacks that it can do in different ways. Mask attacks are particularly powerful and should be avoided at all costs. The Maguu Kenki can do three different types of mask attacks. One is defensive, stopping any incoming ranged attacks, another will send the mask straight ahead of its position, damaging anything in its path, and the last is an exploding mask.

The Maguu Kenki has two different Dash attacks. One will leave an afterimage behind that will mirror the Maguu Kenki’s next attack, while the other ends in a swirling elemental attack.

The device can also do a number of area of effect attacks such as a double slash, a slam attack, and a wide range Cryo slam. The majority of these attacks are preceded by an Anemo vortex that attempts to suck the player into range.

For most players, the best bet is simply loading up on a greedy on-field DPS with plenty of synergies, hitting all Elemental Bursts, and then chopping down the Maguu Kenki as quickly as possible. While the device hits hard, it is not an overly taxing boss fight.
