What Are Primal Constructs in Genshin Impact?

Primal Constructs are a pyramid-shaped enemy found in the deserts of Sumeru, usually around ruins and other buildings within the desert. They are remnants of the technology of King Deshret’s rule.

If you’re planning on farming materials from  Primal Constructs, bring along an Electro character. When Primal Constructs turn invisible, hit the drills they leave behind with Electro, and they will reemerge.

Primal Constructs can usually be found around desert ruins and buildings. There are also some located inside the pyramids, tombs, and temples, especially the Mausoleum of King Deshret.
