How to Unlock Under the Umbrella Shade Domain in Genshin Impact?
To unlock Under the Umbrella’s Shade domain in Genshin Impact 3.0 you need to hit and therefore activate five pillars found around the entrance into the domain. You can’t just hit them with any character or power. New update is all about Dendra, the new element in Genshin. To activate the pillars you have to hit them with a character that has Dendra attack powers. Your first choice should be Dendra traveler, which you get by default. If you forgot to switch him/her to Dendra you can use Tigharniu or Ganyu if you already were so lucky to get them through wishes. However, if you don’t want to spend you wishes for new characters just yet, you can actually activate them with any element character in your roster. Here’s how.
To do so you need to use the new mechanic in Genshin 3.0. There is a Dendrograna plant where you can summon Dendra orbs that will attack with that element anything you hit. There is one conveniently placed next to the domain’s entrance. All that’s left to be done is to hit five pillars in a certain order and you will unlock Under the Umbrella Shade domain. Do note that one of the pillars is hidden behind a rock. You need to destroy it first and then activate the pillar when it is its turn.
