The Land of Wisdom, Sumeru, is full of hidden puzzles waiting to be uncovered in Genshin Impact, especially since many of them lead to a secret area, a Luxurious Chest, or unlocking a Domain. For example, in Mawtiyima Forest, the Universal Fungus Domain is buried in the ground and surrounded by Dendro Monuments.
The Universal Fungus is a one-time Domain in Genshin Impact that rewards players with very useful things like Primogems, Adventure EXP, Dendro Sigils, Hero’s Wit, Mora, and many more items. As the process is very simple and not time-consuming, unlocking the Domain is not that hard.
How To Unlock The Universal Fungus Domain In Genshin Impact
To unlock the Universal Fungus Domain in Genshin Impact, players must activate the Monuments in the correct order. Upon approaching the Domain, a Dendrogranum will be in front of it, and several Dendro Monuments are surrounding it, with one being buried under a Dendro Rock.
To make the process easier, players must first destroy the rock to free the Monument. Approach the Dendrogranum and summon the Dendrograna, then use any Genshin Impact character to hit the Dendro Rock with a Charged Attack.
Once all Dendro Monuments are visible, equip any Dendro Genshin Impact character like Collei to activate them in the correct order. The secret is to observe the symbols in front of the five Monuments. One of them has a glowing symbol; activate it, then search for the next one that has a glowing symbol (the next correct Monument is pointed by the last glowing symbol). Keep repeating the same step until all Dendro Monuments are activated.
For players that would like a fast and straightforward answer, face the entrance of the Domain and turn on:
- Lower right Monument
- Lower left Monument
- Upper left Monument (the one previously hidden by a Dendro Rock)
- Upper right Monument
- The remaining Monument
The moment Travelers activate the last Dendro Monument, the Universal Fungus Domain will be unlocked, and a Common Chest will appear.
For players who wish to unlock the Domain but don’t possess a Dendro character in Genshin Impact, equip any Bow user and keep summoning Dendrograna until all Monuments are activated.
How To Get To The Universal Fungus Domain In Genshin Impact
The Universal Fungus Domain is in the eastern parts of Mawtiyima Forest. First, travel to the Mawtiyima Forest Teleport Waypoint in Genshin Impact, which can be found northeast of The Palace of Alcazarzaray. From there, glide northeast while ignoring all the tall plants. Once players arrive above the Domain, drop to the watery area below to unlock it.
To complete the Universal Fungus Domain, or Under the Umbrella’s Shade, Travelers need to defeat three waves of enemies in a specific time limit; the first wave is Floating Hydro Fungus, the second is a variety of Fungus enemies, and the third wave is full of Hydroshrooms, Dendroshrooms, and Cryoshroom. Completing this one-time Domain will reward players with many useful items like:
- Primogems x40
- Adventure EXP x500
- Dendro Sigil x 5
- Hero’s Wit x2
- Gambler’s Brooch x1 (a Genshin Impact Artifact set)
- Teaching of Admonition x3
- Mystic Enhancement Ore x4
