You’ll find this castle in the southern half of Inzauma City. Apart from being the Raiden Shogun’s dwelling, it also serves as the headquarters for the Tenryou Commission, where the Tengu Kujou Sara pledges her allegiance to.

The weekly La Signora Boss domain is located in the highest peak of the Tenshukaku.

Peak of Skyfrost Nail in Dragonspine 


Genshin players first got a taste of hardship when Dragonspine was added in the 1.2 patch. The mountainous region plagued by relentless snowstorms was a force to be reckoned with, especially for new players. However, some of the most scenic views are found in these ice-kissed lands.
