Yelan materials farming guide


These empty seashells are mainly located in Liyue. You can often find them on beaches, but specific locations that are good for farming Starconches include the Yaoguang Shoel, south of Mingyun village, and the beaches that span south and east of the shoal. You can also find them on the island where the Guyun Stone Forest is located.


You can get the insignia from defeating Fatui Skirmishers, Fatui Cicin Mages, and Fatui Pyro Agents. The level of insignia you get is determined by the level of the enemies you defeat. Level 60+ drop Lieutenant’s Insignia and level 40+ drop Sergeant’s Insignia.

These foes can largely be found in locations around Liyue, although they are also found at Dragonspine in Mondstadt as well. Remember, you can also use lower-tiered insignia to craft higher tier ones.

Runic Fang

Runic Fangs aren’t currently used by any character or weapon for ascension, mainly because they are a brand new material introduced in the 2.6 update.

Runic Fangs are dropped by level 30+ Ruin Serpents, a new boss introduced in the (also new) Chasm area. You will need to first unlock the underground Chasm area, and after you defeat a Ruin Serpent you need to consume 40 original resin to claim the rewards.


The Hydro ascension materials: Varunada Lazurite fragments, slivers, and gemstones can be obtained by defeating the following weekly and normal bosses:

  • Oceanid
  • Stormterror
  • Hydro Hypostasis
  • Childe
  • Stormterror

You can also use Hydro ascension materials to craft different variations of Varunada Lazurite, such as using three slivers to make a fragment.

Talent ascension materials

Gilded Scales drop from level 70+ Beneath the Dragon-Queller, a Trounce domain located in Liyue. You first need to complete Zhongli’s story quest in order to access it. The domain may also drop a Dragon Lord’s Crown or a Bloodjade Branch instead, but you can convert either of them into a Gilded Scale using a Dream Solvent.

To get the Prosperity books, you must do the Taishan Mansion domain on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays, and you can convert lower-tiered books into higher tier ones. To reach level 10 in each talent requires a Crown of Insight. There are currently six permanently available: one via offerings to the Frostbearing Tree and five from the Sacred Sakura.
