Sacrificial Offering Quest Complete Guide
Here is a complete guide on Genshin Impact’s Sacrificial Offering quest, a part of the Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual.
Go to the abandoned shrine northeast of Konda Village
Carry out the investigation at the abandoned shrine
Interact with the large kitsune statue to the east.
Continue the investigation at the abandoned shrine
When players arrive at the Abandoned Shrine near Chinju Forest to carry out the investigation, they will find a Mysterious Shadow – she is a ghost, you heard us right. To complete “Continue the Investigation at the Abandoned Shrine” players have to find and interact with three Mysterious Shadows to move them in the central area.
To move a single Mysterious Shadow to the central area, players have to interact with the shadow two times. Upon first interaction, the shadow will change its location. So, in total, players have to interact with Mysterious Shadows six times.
We already have a dedicated guide on it that offers the exact location of the Mysterious Shadows.
Head to the Grand Narukami Shrine to investigate
Next, players have to head to the Grand Narukami Shrine and talk to an NPC called Inagi Hotomi. She will give players the Memento Lens gadget which is required to progress the sacrificial offering quest. And, it is used in solving a plethora of different puzzles.
Return to the abandoned shrine and use the Memento Lens to investigate
In this section of the quest, players have to use the Memento Lens on seven Earth Kitsune Statues to complete the investigation. The first statue is right in front of the Abandoned Shrine, where you first talk to the Mysterious Shadow, the rest locations we have shared below.
