Want to know all the Genshin Impact Traveler ascension materials needed to fully level up? The original player character surely has a place in all our hearts, even once we’ve met Amber, earned Xiangling, and pulled Zhongli from a Genshin Impact banner. And while the Traveler may not be at the top of our Genshin Impact tier list, they’re still a solid choice in any team thanks to their ability to change their elemental affinity.
The Traveler is able to choose from any of the available elements in Genshin Impact, by interacting with the relative Statue of the Seven. As the only character with this trait, the Traveler is quite unique, and so there’s reason to want to level them up as much as possible. To do so, just like any other Genshin Impact character, you need to ascend them with specific ascension materials.
Traveler ascension materials
Once you have reached the current max level for your Traveler, the only way to continue upgrading your character is through ascension. You also need to be at a high enough Adventure Rank to ascend, so take a look at our guide to increasing your Adventure Rank if you are short a level or two. Once you are able to ascend, these are the items and Mora costs you need to progress further.

Talent ascension materials
Since the Traveler can change their elemental alignment, they’re able to learn different talents. Unfortunately, this means you need to acquire a different batch of materials to level up every talent across each element. Use the following tables to level up any of the Traveler’s Anemo, Geo, or Electro talents. You need to collect all of the following materials for each separate talent you want to level up.

Traveler materials farming guide
Brilliant Diamond pieces and complete Gemstones are rewarded as you increase your Adventure rank, so they are limited. Thankfully, the Traveler is the only character to use Brilliant Diamond while ascending, so you’ll earn enough to fully ascend your Traveler.
Windwheel Aster is a flower exclusive to Mondstadt, and is not only used by the Traveler, but also to ascend Bennett and Sucrose. The red flower looks like a windwheel, hence its name, and can be obtained in various places across Mondstadt, can be purchased from Flora, or grown from Luxuriant Glebe seeds.
There’s a chance of obtaining masks from Hilichurls, with Damaged Masks dropping from level one, Stained Masks from Level 40+ Hilichurls, and Ominous Masks from Level 60+. You can also craft masks using an alchemy crafting table: Three Broken Masks and 25 Mora results in a Stained Mask, three of which can then be turned into one Ominous Mask with 50 Mora.
Dendro talent materials
The new Dendro materials aren’t available as yet, and are all based on information from the 3.0 beta so are subject to change. However, from the information we have so far, books of Admonition, Ingenuity and Pravis are going to be available from the Steeple of Ignorance domain. Admonition is available from Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays, Ingenuity on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, and Pravis on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Spores, Pollen, and Cyst Dust will all be dropped by the new Fungi enemies, as revealed in an official Sumeru teaser trailer. As with other similar materials, Luminescent Pollen most likely drops from Level 40+ Fungi, and Crystalline Cyst Dust from Level 60+.
The Mudra of the Malefic General should be found in a similar mechanic to the likes of the existing Dvalin’s Sigh – from weekly boss drops. It’s rumoured that the first Mudra obtained will be from the new Magatsu Mitake Narukami no Mikoto boss, Raiden Shogun’s puppet successor, and the domain will then open weekly for repeated visits.
Anemo talent materials
Dvalin’s Sigh can only be collected as a once weekly boss drop each time you relive the battle against Dvalin. Meanwhile, Scrolls can be obtained by defeating Samachurls, Sealed and Forbidden Scrolls dropping from Level 40+ and Level 60+ Samachurls respectively. You can also use Alchemy and Mora to craft Sealed and Forbidden Scrolls.
Ballad, Freedom, and Resistance books can be obtained from Forsaken Rift on set days. Ballad items are available on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Freedom items, meanwhile, can be gathered on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays, and Resistance books on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
Geo talent materials
Arrowheads are dropped by Hilichurl shooters, and you have a chance of obtaining Sharp and Weathered Arrowheads from Level 40+ and Level 60+ ranged Hilichurls, respectively. Meanwhile, the Tail of Boreas is a weekly boss drop, available from repeating the Wolf of the North Challenge and defeating the Dominator of Wolves.
Geo talent books, Prosperity, Diligence, and Gold, can be collected from the Taishan Mansion domain. Prosperity can be obtained on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays, Diligence on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, and Gold on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Electro talent materials
Genshin Impact Handguards are dropped by Kairagi and Nobushi on Inazuma. While Kageuchi and Famed Handguards are dropped by higher level enemies, you can also craft them from Old Handguards and Mora.
You can only obtain Dragon Lord’s Crown from a weekly boss drop in the Beneath the Dragon-Queller domain, and is only available after completion of Zhongli’s Story Quest, Historia Antiqua Chapter: Act II – No Mere Stone.
Items of Elegance, Transience, and Light can be obtained from Violet Court. Elegance books are available on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, Transience on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays, and Light on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
The Crown of Insight
The Crown of Insight is one of the rarer ascension materials, and is used in talent ascension by every Genshin Impact character, but only ever at level 10. The item can only be obtained through special events, such as Summertime Odyssey, or through Offerings.
Now you know all of the items required for Traveler ascension and how to obtain them, you’ll be able to fully max out your very first Genshin Impact character in no time. Perhaps you want to do so in time for Genshin Impact 3.0, so you can explore Sumeru with the Traveler, or add them to a team with Tighnari, Collei, and Dori, the game’s three brand-new characters.
