How to beat the Primo Geovishap in Genshin Impact

He’s a very big boy.

While you have been exploring Liyue, a terrible creature has been slumbering beneath the surface. It has awoken for Genshin Impact 1.3, and the Primo Geovishap is now waiting for you.

This is a tough but fun fight, and in this guide we will show you how to beat this massive monster. The main thing you will need to watch out for is the beast’s Primordial Shower attack. The creature has some master of multiple elements, and can attack with an explosion of Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, or Electro. The good news is that there is a way to use it to your advantage.

Where to find the Primo Geovishap

You can find this boss fight in Tianqiu Valley, but the first time you take him on you will need to speak with an NPC just outside the southwest side of Liyue.

Primo Geovishap Attacks

  • Primordial Shower – the main difference maker in this fight, the creature charges an attack of Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, or Electro energy. If you are protected by a shield when this attack goes off the creature will end up taking damage. If it matches the damage type or is a Geo shield, the damage dealt to the boss is increased.
  • Primeval Spring – forms a series of rocks that will explode, dealing damage.
  • Elemental Breath – the beast breaths pure elemental energy that matches the current attuned element.
  • Burrow and Slam – the Primo Geovishap digs underground, then explodes to the surface, performing a slam attack.
  • Spin – like its smaller cousins, the Primo Geovishap can go a lashing spin with his tail, doing a lot of damage.

Geo shielders are king in this fight, so anyone with Zhongli or Noelle is advised to bring them. The boss will drop crystals as you fight it, so be sure to time picking them up to coincide with when you need them to counter the Primordial Shower attack.

After that, bring your favorite damage dealers and supports, and just make sure you try to keep to the beast’s rear. Most of its attacks will struggle to hit you here, and you can safely wear it down over time. Make sure you combo your elements and generate as much energy as possible to keep your Skills and Bursts flowing.
