Genshin Impact Theater Mechanicus Guide Xiao Lantern Veneficus Sigil Tower Defense

Mystic Arts and wave transitions

After defeating all the enemies in a wave, you’ll have a short transition where you can select Mystic Arts.

 

The Mystic Arts that appear tend to be random, and most of them cost construction points once selected.

If you’re playing co-op, each player gets to pick their own Mystic Art modifier that becomes active.

X-type tower has increased attack 160
X-type tower has increased attack speed 40
X-type tower has increased range 120
X-type tower has increased elemental mastery 80
X-type tower has decreased costs 40
Increased construction points gained from tower deconstruction 75
Reduced cooldown of stage interactions 75

Tower specialties

In some cases, you might see Mystic Arts that are the specialties of certain towers. Here are the ones I’ve seen so far:

Mystic Art Cost
Cryo towers fire at an extra target; +150% damage vs. frozen opponents 300
Hydro towers gain +150% damage vs. wet opponents 300
Electro towers gain +50% damage bonus with each attack (stacks up to five times); lasts 30 seconds 300

Extra enemies or effects

Lastly, some Mystic Arts might cause additional enemies to spawn or they might provide a new effect (with a slight detriment). Here are some examples:

Mystic Art Cost
Fearless – A Ruin Guard or Ruin Grader will spawn at the start of the wave. Defeating this enemy awards extra Veneficus Sigils at the end of the run. 0
Fickle – X-type tower might be unable to attack for one wave; increased range/attack afterward. 0

Anyway, let’s discuss maps, challenges, and Veneficus Sigils.
