Continue with Sacred Sakura’s cleansing ritual by purifying three more places around Inazuma, in this world quest for Genshin Impact 2.0.
As Genshin Impact Update 2.0 is now available worldwide, many new missions and challenges have been added to the Inazuma region, in which you, as the Traveler, can learn more about its rich history while collecting some rewards in the way.
One of them is a series of world quests known as the “Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual”, which requires a lot of effort and time on your part, as they involve you doing many things in the correct order, so let’s guide you to Finish the third of these missions called “Purification of Impurities”.
Purification of Impurities world mission
Before starting this quest, you must have completed the world quests “A Strange Story” and “Offering of Sacrifice”, as they give you context around the story of these quests, as well as some basic understanding of how they play.
After Kazari appears in front of you at the end of the previous mission, you will have to head to three different locations around Inazuma to complete the Sacred Sakura cleansing ritual. The first of these will be the Chunju forest.
In the forest, you will find its main path full of all kinds of enemies that you will have to deal with, until you find a giant stone statue of Tanuki called Ioroi. The Ioroi will give you some instructions, while you will have to convince him to give you his Ward, but he will only do so if you entertain his children for a while.
To do this, you will have to look for three small tanukis around the area following the main path you walked on before. For the former, you’ll follow him down the road until he transforms into a torch that you can light with Pyro abilities.
The second will be near a horde of Hilichurls. Defeat them, then climb onto the stone with the pot and investigate the area by pressing the warning button. The last tanuki will do the same disappearing trick, so follow it for a bit, then it will turn into three torches in the river. Power them all on to finish this task and then go back to Ioroi.
Ioroi will thank you and give you his Ward. After this, the map will mark the location of the barrier near a beach. Here you will find a large rock wall, however a tanuki near it will suddenly disappear from the wall. Enter the uncovered area, where you will find a place to place the Ward, which will activate the Electro Tori puzzle.
In this case, the Electro flashlights will be more complicated to adjust, since they will be very hidden. However, the lantern to the right of the Ward will be set to four, and the lantern to the left hidden behind the root will be set to three. You’ll find the last two lanterns at the top, they both need to be set to two.
The Ochimusha will appear in front of you, so better prepare yourself by using some good Elemental reactions. Immediately after defeating him, Kazari will appear again to talk about this barrier and also about Ioroi. Finish the dialogue and then head over to Araumi.
In Araumi, you will have to look around you to illuminate five Electro totems, however some of them will be protected with some mechanical enemies that you will have to defeat. After activating all five, the entrance to a root-covered ruined tower will open, where you will find a Precious Chest and three small statues that you must scan with your Memento Lens.
Once you scan them, each will reveal a button that you need to press in order for you to descend further to the ritual site. Here, scan the Kitsune statue near the barrier to summon a tree that you can use to obtain Electrogranum, to break through the barrier. Once inside, use an Electro attack on Kitsune to get the Guardian for this ritual.
Put the Ward in its place and the puzzle will appear. Also, two of the lanterns will not appear at the beginning as you have to locate a couple of small statues using your Memento Lens to activate the last two lanterns. Now, with the five around, the first in the middle remains the same, while the ones next to it will be set to three and the last in the back to two.
Interact with the Guardian and the area will be purified, but as always, an Ochimusha will appear to fight. Defeat him and then move to the last location east of the Kamisato state.
The first place you will go will be a small hill where you will also find an Electroculus. In your current place, scan the small statue of Kitsune with the Memento Lens and a large one will appear, hit it with an electric attack and you will get the necessary Guardian.
After this, walk to the beach where you will find a Waverider waypoint and use it to travel to the small island outside the state of Kamisato. On the island, you will look for two Kitsune statues near a small hole, where a small statue will be sitting. Scan it to open the rock floor below you.
Once you finish falling, you will enter an electrocharged zone with a room in the back. Float all the way to it and you will find the last Red Tori. Activate it with your mentee to find the correct order.
Also, some of the lanterns will be off, so to turn them on, go to the tree near the Tori and summon an Electrogranum, then approach them and they will be charged with Electro energy again.
To install the lanterns, the ones on the side of the Pavilion will be set to three, while the other two should be set to two. Purify the area, and this time two Ochimusha will face you. Take care of them, as they can be quite complicated, and do not forget to choose an Electrogranum so that the electrical charges in the area do not affect you.
After defeating Ochimusha, you will return to the tree in the cave near Konda Village. Here, the final challenge of Sakura’s Sacred Cleansing Ritual will be waiting for you as you need to purify the center of the tree in the Cleanse of Yougou mission.
