Genshin Impact Kunado's Trial Kunado's Locus

Once you’ve started the Erebos’ Secret quest in Genshin Impact, you’ll see three floating islands in the distance. One of these has Kunado’s Trial where you’ll need to release the Flames of the High Gate (i.e., floating blue embers). Here’s our Genshin Impact Erebos’ Secret guide to help you complete Kunado’s Trial.

Note: For more information about the game, check out our Genshin Impact guides and features hub. Likewise, you can take a look at our main guide for the Erebos’ Secret quest chain.


Genshin Impact: Erebos’ Secret – Kunado’s Trial guide

Kunado’s Trial or Kunado’s Locus is connected to The Serpent’s Heart area in Genshin Impact. Instead of a grassy field, you’ll find a pool of water down a hole in the southern portion of this landmass. Defeat the nearby Bathysmal Vishaps so you can open the chest. You can then glide and let the Ghostfish current take you through the portal.

Once you’re there, you’ll need to interact with all four Flames of the High Gate. However, instead of solving puzzles, you’ll need to activate the four torches next to the statues by using Pyro attacks.

When you do this, waves of mobs will spawn:

  • Wave #1 – 4x Rifthounds
  • Wave #2 – 3x Abyss Mages
  • Wave #3 – 2x Bathysmal Vishaps
  • Wave #4 – 1x Hydro Abyss Lector

With all foes eliminated, the barriers surrounding the statues will disappear. You should be able to climb on top of them to grab the flames. After that, make your way to the next tower and talk to the shade. This will complete the Kunado’s Trial quest in Genshin Impact.

Note: Don’t forget to finish Yachimatahiko’s Trial and Yachimatahime’s Trial as well. When you’re done with all three, return to Erebos to finish the Erebos’ Secrets quest.
