Genshin Impact Candace materials – all ascension materials

Learn where to find all of the Genshin Impact Candace ascension materials so you can upgrade the Hydro polearm wielder and her skills to their max levels

Looking for any of the Genshin Impact Candace ascension materials? The Genshin Impact 3.1 update introduces three brand new characters to the free PC game, including Candace, a four-star Hydro polearm wielder. Like Cyno, Candace has some Egyptian influences, with an Eye of Horus decorating her headband.

Candace appears on both of the Genshin Impact banners during phase one. If you’re trying to unlock Cyno or Venti, there’s a good chance you’re going to unlock Candace in the process. In this case, you may want to know how to get Candace ascension materials so you can continue leveling her up. Four-star characters generally aren’t as good as five-star ones, but Candace could stand out as one of the rare exceptions to earn a top spot on our Genshin Impact tier list.

How to farm Candace materials

While it is possible to find a large number of Candace’s ascension materials in the Sumeru region, you may find some in other areas of the world Teyvat.

Faded Red Satin, Trimmed Red Silk, and Rich Red Brocade

You can find any of the Red Satin items as drops from Eremite enemies. This includes Vanguards, Crossbows, Ravenbeak Halberdiers, Linebreakers, Sword-Dancers, Desert Clearwaters, Sunfrosts, and Daythunders. Your best option is to find the eight camps dotted around the far edges of Sumeru in these areas:

  • North of Gandha Hill
  • Southwest of Chatrakam Cave
  • Northeast of Devantaka Mountain
  • West of Port Ormos
  • Southwest of Apam Woods
  • South of Yasna Monument
  • West of Yasna Monument
  • West of Vanarana

You can also craft higher-tier scrolls by combining three Faded Red Satin with 25 Mora to get a Trimmed Red Silk, or three Trimmed Red Silk with 50 Mora to get a Rich Red Brocade.


Redcrests only grow in the Sumeru desert. Look for cacti with these red fruit growing on them.

Light Guiding Tetrahedron

You can find the new Light Guiding Tetrahedron item as a drop from a level 30+ Semi-Intrasient Matrices, which will appear in the game as of version 3.1. Once the update drops, we’ll give you the precise location, but from the pre-release footage shown, it seems you to fight the Algorithm of Semi-Intransient Matrix of Overseer Network boss inside a pyramid. There are plenty of pyramids in the Dehsret Desert. Make sure to use Electro attacks or the Catalyze elemental reaction to get rid of the components to remove its cloak of invisibility.

Hydro ascension materials

Candace requires Hydro ascension materials to increase her maximum level limit. These are Varunada Lazurite fragments, slivers, chunks, and gemstones. You can get these by defeating the following weekly and normal bosses.

  • Oceanid
  • Stormterror
  • Hydro Hypostasis
  • Childe
  • Stormterror

Additionally, you can also craft the higher rarities of Varunada Lazurite by converting lower-tiered versions, such as using three slivers to make a fragment. You can also get the desired Hydro-type materials by using a Dust of Azoth to convert other jewel types.

Talent ascension materials

Candace needs the Admonition book chain to purchase upgrades, which is one of the newer talent chain items. Currently, you can only get these books from the Steeple of Ignorance Domain, which you can find near Chatrakam Cave in Sumeru on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays.

She also needs the Tears of the Calamitous God to upgrade her talent levels down the line. To get them, you first need to unlock the Guardian of Eternity Challenge and defeat the End of the Oneiric Euthymia. This is a weekly boss, so it may take a while for her to drop the tears you seek.

The final item you need to maximise the level of Candace’s talents is a Crown of Insight. You can find seven of them via offerings, while limited-time Genshin Impact events occasionally give them out as part of their rewards.
