If you love playing Genshin Impact but have found yourself stuck, keep reading to learn how to complete the Genshin Impact Long Shot Quest.

Venture Beyond The Seal

The first step in venturing on this quest is to venture beyond the seal.

This means entering Dvalis Lane, initiating a conversation with him and finding all those things which bother him a lot.

But before you do that, you need to enter the Confront Stormterror’s Quest Domain: Storming Terror. Once you’re there, the battle is split into two parts. Each part of the battle is intended to shatter the two crystals Dvalin has attached on his back.

Ride the Winds to Defeat Dvalin

A key part in completing the Long Shot quest in Genshin Impact is defeating Dvalin. In your daring pursuit you will need to learn how to ride the winds to defeat him however.

Once you finally confront Dvalin, your battle begins, and you will find yourself hovering over him. This ability is called Riding the Winds and it is crucial in your long and daring pursuit to finally complete this quest. If this surprises you, do not be led astray.

Attack Dvalin’s Weak Spots

Your usual attack command turns into a wave of projectiles which you can fire against Dvalin. Dvalin has a number of weak spots, which according to Venti are his blood clots. Targeting those is crucial to defeat Dvalin, because this will gradually deplete Dvalin’s health.

At around 3/4 of his health as you attack Dvalin, you need to watch your back because he will change tactics and he will start launching missiles at you. You would be wise to also shoot ameno energy at him because this will damage him greatly as well. At the end of the fight you will be able to choose whether to save Dvalin or vanquish him.

Dvalin’s Wind Breath Attack

One of Dvalin’s key attacks is his ability called Wind Breath. Dvalin aims to hold onto all sides at this platform and uses wind-blasted attack on either side. Situational awareness and movement here are important so you can deal damage as you stay afloat and dodge his surprise attack. To anticipate this, always pay attention to where Dvalin is facing and move towards a different spot a short distance away from his attacking claw closest to you.

Dodging Dvalin’s Energy Bombs

To be fair, it is fairly simple to ride the acceleration currents and avoid Dvalin’s attack as you move between the two platforms.

After attacking Dvalin’s two shiny spots he retreats in the center and shoots Energy Bombs directly at you in the shape of a green orb, causing moderate damage when you get hit. Dvalin will also occasionally launch blue beams in your direction which can further damage your health, so make sure the platform remains in a stable direction and avoid them.
