If you're hunting for all of the different Shrine of Depths locations in Genshin Impact, we've compiled a list of them all across Teyvat's major regions of Mondstadt, Liyue, Inazuma, Sumeru, and Fontaine.

Shrine of Depths are special towers in the game that contain exquisite chests, ready to be opened for equally special rewards. The only crux is that these Shrines are scattered across the world and require special Shrine of Depths Keys to open - so here's all the steps you need to take to get them.

How to get Shrine of Depths keys

Shrine of Depths keys can mostly be obtained by completing challenges in Domains, where you’ll have to fight off waves of enemies to succeed. This will allow you to open all 46 Shrine of Depths dotted around the five major regions.

We've broken down all the challenges and Adventurer tasks you'll need to complete for each region below:

Mondstadt keys

  • Temple of the Falcon
  • Temple of the Wolf
  • Temple of the Lion
  • Eagle's Gate
  • Ascension Domain I (Awards 3 Keys)
  • Complete the ‘New Horizons of Adventure’ Quest given by Katheryne of the Adventurer Guild in Mondstadt
  • Adventurer Handbook Chapter 4 task: ‘Upgrade the Statues of The Seven in Mondstadt to Lv. 6’
  • Adventurer Handbook Chapter 5 task: ‘Open 100 chests’

Liyue keys

  • The domain of Forsaken Ruins
  • The domain of the Wayward Path
  • Hidden Palace of Guizang Formula Domain (Grants two keys)
  • ‘The Chi of Yore’ quest, given by Yan’er on the Bishui Plains
  • ‘The Tree Who Stands Alone’ world quest given by Yuang Hong at the Mingyun Village
  • ‘Treasure Lost, Treasure Found’ quest given by Soraya in the Guili Plains
  • Reach Adventure Rank 35 and complete the world quest from the Ascension Domain (Rewards 3 Shrine of Depths keys)

Inazuma keys

  • Chapter II: Act II Main questline ‘Stillness, the Sublimation of Shadow’
  • Rewarded for upgrading the Statue of the Seven to levels: Two, four, Six, Eight and Ten
  • Rewarded for offering Electro sigils to the Sacred Sakura in the Grand Narukami Shrine. Rewarded at levels: 8, 18, 28 and 38

Sumeru Keys

There are two main ways to get the Sumeru Shrine of Depths keys: First, you'll need to make an offering of Dendroculi (the glowing green orbs found floating throughout the Sumeru map) to the Statue of the Seven in the region.

Dendro Sigils can be obtained as you spend Dendroculi at the Statues of the Seven, or from opening chests in Sumeru.

You'll also need to give Dendro Sigils to the Tree of Dreams. The Tree of Dreams is in Vanarana in Sumeru, and you must complete the Aranyaka quest chain first, to unlock the tree's reward system.

The following are the keys you'll get per level obtained at the Statues of the Seven and Tree of Dreams. Achieving each level will reward you with one Sumeru shrine key each:

  • Sumeru Statues of the Seven levels 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10
  • Sumeru Tree of Dreams levels 8, 18, 28, 38

Fontaine Keys

As with the Sumeru keys, to obtain the Fontaine Shrine of Depths Keys, you’ll need to make offerings to the Statue of Seven in the region. The currency for this region is Hydroculus, glowing blue orbs that can be collected across the region’s map. Once you have some collected, present them to the Statue of Seven.

You can also gain Keys from the Fountain of Lucine (located outside the Opera Epiclese), in return for Hydro Sigils. Hydro Sigils can be found in chests throughout the region.

You’ll get Keys from the fountain once you have given enough sigils to pass the following levels:

  • Level 8
  • Level 18
  • Level 28
  • Level 38

Shrine of Depths rewards

Each chest located in the Shrine of Depths will reward the Traveler with randomised weapons and Artifacts, along with 40 Primogems, 60 Adventure XP and 10 Sigils (which can be traded in for unique souvenirs), making the shrines a viable option to give you an XP boost if you’re stuck on an Adventurer Rank.

That's not all though, as there are in-game achievements for opening all Shrine of Depths in each location, rewarding further Primogems to the player.
