Amakumo Fruit

To find this glowing lilac fruit, you need to head to Seirai Island in Inazuma. These fruits can be found along the shoreline of the central island and on the outskirts of the fittingly named Amakumo Peak. Here’s a guide with a map on exactly where to find amakumo fruit in Genshin Impact.


Handguards can be obtained by defeating Nobushi and Kairagi enemies in Inazuma. Old Handguards are a common ascension material, dropped by Nobushi, but to acquire the Kageuchi Handguards that you need to fully ascend Raiden Shogun, you need to defeat enemies at level 40 or above. To obtain Famed Handguards, you need to defeat enemies at least level 60.

Storm Beads

Storm Beads drop from Thunder Manifestation, the Electro boss found on Amakumo Peak in Inazuma. You can only fight this boss if you have completed the Seirai Stormchasers questline. Here’s our Genshin Impact Thunder Manifestation boss guide to help you take down this Electro Oceanid.
