Genshin Impact Theater Mechanicus Guide | General tips
Your choice of Mechanicus is limited early on, but more unlocks as you earn points by completing stages and clearing specific challenges. However, the first group of Mechanici is enough to clean most stages if your layouts are correct. Later unlocks, such as Banishment or Binding, are useful, but tend to require more work or longer cooldowns. If you find yourself struggling, though, Arcanum Mechanici is good for buffing attacks.
Each stage has a lot of space to produce a mechanic, but you want to avoid stringing them in too much. Find a place where the enemies will meet, and build most of your traps there.
Also, focus on certain elements in each wave so that your Fortune Stick upgrades go farther without you spending too many points.
While you can ' Not to deal with actual damage to party members during Theater Mechanicus, you ' ll also want to bring in a variety of elements. The mode lets you trigger Elemental Reactions and break shields, which will remove pressure from setting up your Mechanici. Pyro, Hydro, and Anemo are the most useful elements you will include.
Genshin Impact Theater Mechanicus Guide | Theater Mechanicus Stage 1
Stage 1 is an introductory stage that shouldn’t pose too many problems – which is good because, at this point, you have very few Mechanici to work with. Enemies are marching in a straight line, and you have two clusters to load into Mechanici.
If you can't motivate reactions to slow down the Ruin Guard with your Mechanici, you do it with your characters. Overload and Frozen are perfect for this and any other large enemies.
Genshin Impact Theater Mechanicus Guide | Theater Mechanicus Stage 2
Stage 2 introduces a second enemy terminal, but they still use the same path. Group your Mechanici at the front of the stairs and focus Hydro, Electro, and Cryo to accelerate their speed. Add some Pyro on both sides to trigger Overload or Melt on occasion.
Enemies have shields at this stage, but your Pyro characters can easily destroy them. Lawachurls are your biggest threat here, but relying on either Cryo or a setup that carries overload should help you spot it.
Genshin Impact Theater Mechanicus Guide | Theater Mechanicus Stage 3
Stage 3 is where changing your layout between waves starts to become necessary. You have two terminals at this time, and each enemy group targets a different one. Unfortunately, enemy paths make it easy to knock them off the stage.
Anemo Mechanici can help do that or somehow push back lighter enemies, which is handy for fast Samachurls. As always, be sure to throw some Cryo Mechanici in the main lane. Since both enemy groups are moving in a straight line at this stage, the Electro-Charged trigger is a great way to deal chain damage as well.
Genshin Impact Theater Mechanicus Guide | Theater Mechanicus Stage 4
The difficulty increases significantly with this one, even if you have an easy tricks at your disposal to manage the excitement. Here, the waves meet in the center of the map. You can stack Cryo or Electro Mechanici in the available spaces to slow down enemies, while Anemo will push them back and increase potential damage.
Another strategy is to group your Mechanici in front of each staircase, with Pyro Mechanici around the edges to trigger reactions and stop the waves from reaching the center. Pyro also helps break the Abyss Mage's Electro shield faster.
Genshin Impact Theater Mechanicus Guide | Theater Mechanicus Stage 5
Stage 5 seems like a simple reskin of Stage 3, but you'll want to change your approach here. Ignore the long stretch – or just use one or two Geo Crackshots if any – because it’s too easy for an enemy or five to slip on it. Focus most of your Mechanici on the cluster near your Terminal.
AoE attacks are your best option here, so stay with Electro and possibly Hydro. Pyro Mechanici is good, but only at higher upgrade levels. You can trigger an excessive load on yourself to knock back enemies.
Genshin Impact Theater Mechanicus Guide | Theater Mechanicus Stage 6
Stage 6 is pretty forgiving, thanks in large part to a unique gimmick that lets you deal with group threats. Both enemy waves will converge in several key areas. Electro and Cryo work well again here to slow them down, and a Hydro Mechanici or two will generate some useful Reactions.
The high platform in the middle of the stage is the interesting part. Stage 6 has an Adeptus bridge like Stage 4 did, but you can control when this one appears using a special device. This is handy for blocking enemy hordes and also for dropping them into the abyss if they are on the bridge when you deactivate it.
Genshin Impact Theater Mechanicus Guide | Theater Mechanicus Stage 7
Stage 7 is similar to Stage 2, but with stronger opponents. The same Pyro / Electro combination should see you easily, but another set up focuses on Hydro and Cryo at the foot of the ladder instead. These two, along with some Anemo help from one of your characters, prevent enemies from adventure very far and are particularly useful for dealing with Samachurls.
Genshin Impact Theater Mechanicus Guide | Theater Mechanicus Stage 8
This one divides the threat into three, but don't waste your resources linking to each other. Focus your Mechanci on the cluster near your Terminal, and use AoE attacks from Hydro or Electro, and throw some Cryo to deal speed.
Alternatively, instead of building for Reactions, you can focus on one type of Mechanici so your stick buffs boost your damage potential that much more.
Genshin Impact Theater Mechanicus Guide | Theater Mechanicus Stage 9
Stage 9 is the opposite of Stage 7. You have three threats again, but you must split your Mechanici in each path. Slowing them down is a priority as always. Since you need so many Mechanici, however, we recommend staying with one or two types at this stage to better upgrade.
Have at least one great Pyro character in your party when Thunderhelm Lawachurl appears. Characters like Diluc, Klee, or Yanfei can destroy its shield before they reach your Mechanici.
Genshin Impact Theater Mechanicus Guide | Theater Mechanicus Stage 10
Stage 10 throws everything at you, from Abyss Mages to Lawachurls and Geovishaps. This is a familiar stage set up, and as always, you’ll want to focus the mechanic on the front of your Terminal. Knockback reactions are best, so Overload is a possibility to experiment.
Some players have found better luck buffing Cryo and using Banishment for knockback, even if the cooldown on Banishment means it's not great for emergencies. Either way, make sure you have Hydro and Pyro characters in your party to deal with the Abyss Mage shields. If you have Venti, Kazuha, or Sucrose, either of these work well for gathering opponents or also prevents them in a short time. Jade items can be found for completing many event challenges. Replace them in the event store for:
- Hero ' s Wit
- Mystic Enhancement Ore
- Lessons of Elegance
- Teachings of Enhancement  Teachings of Light
