The Imaginarium Theater is a new endgame content of Genshin Impact. Here’s everything you need to know about this new permanent mode and its stages.

After much pleading from the players over the years, Genshin Impact is gearing up for a brand-new endgame mode in version 4.7. Ahead of its official launch, HoYoverse confirmed most gameplay details about the Imaginarium Theater.

Here’s everything about the new Fantasy Realm Epic Poem Abyss and the Imaginarium Theater mode in Genshin Impact.

What is Imaginarium Theater in Genshin Impact?

Imaginarium Theater is an endgame mode in Genshin Impact that’s going to be released on July 1, 2024.

Like the current Spiral Abyss, it’ll reward Primogems and other resources and will be refreshed every certain interval.

Genshin Impact Imaginarium Theater explained

The Imaginarium Theater will follow a season format in Genshin Impact, with a new version of the mode to be released every month. 

How to unlock Imaginarium Theater

You can unlock the Imaginarium Theater after reaching Adventure Rank 35. After reaching that rank, you’ll unlock the Secret Library in Mondstadt.

To enter the Imaginarium Theater, go to the library and look for a Strange Book. When you interact with it, you’ll be able to challenge the Imaginarium Theater.


The Imaginarium Theater has up to eight Acts that will refresh after a period of time. According to leaks, these stages feature three bosses. Bosses in the inaugural season will be Jadeploom TerrorshromCoral Defenders, and Icewind Suite.

The objective within a stage is the same as you’ve seen already, like defeating enemies or protecting a monolith.

Making a team

You’ll need to first pick all six Opening Characters and eight Alternate Cast members before challenging the Imaginarium Theater. The Opening characters will be designated to the Principal Cast and will gain Fantastical Blessings or special buffs that will affect them inside and outside of the Imaginarium Theater.

During the first season of the Imaginarium Theater, the Fantastical Blessing will grant characters that join your party Max HP. Their Attack, and Def stats will be increased by 20%.

Among the Alternate Cast members, you can choose a Special Guest character, which won’t need to meet the challenge requirements. Keep in mind that you can only use characters that you already own.

Players can also borrow their friends’ characters and use them when challenging the Imaginarium Theater. These characters need to meet the existing challenge requirements and can be used up to 15 times each season.

Vigor System in the Imaginarium Theater

The Imaginarium Theater mode introduces its own Vigor System, which gives characters two stacks of Vigor. These stacks deplete after each battle, and characters can’t fight once it’s fully depleted.


Each season will have a theme that restricts the characters you can pick—there will be six Opening Characters that you must pick and all characters have to belong to three Elements (Pyro, Electro, and Anemo for the first season).

The Opening Characters for the first season are Beidou, Wanderer, Chevreuse, Arlecchino, Sayu, and Clorinde. If you do not own these characters, you’ll get a trial version similar to some combat events.

There will also be support characters that you’re not obligated to use, but they all fall outside of these restrictions. Baizhu, Sigewinne, Alhaitham, and Wriothesley are the supporting cast for the first season, and they do not belong to either Pyro, Electro, or Anemo.


If you clear a stage in between 75 – 90 seconds, you’ll get a star, and if you have 8 of them in the end, you’ll get 620 Primogems as a reward. You’ll get 1100 Primogems on your first clear, and you can exchange Toy Medals with Wolfy for Thespian Tricks, which are just special camera ‘poses’ for the Opening Characters.

That’s everything about Imaginarium Theater endgame mode in Genshin Impact. Make sure to circle back for more info once the mode is fully released, but until then, you can check out which characters you can pull in the current banner, and which are the best characters in Genshin Impact’s meta.
