Nagadus Emerald

Nagadus Emerald is the ascension stone for all Dendro characters. Alhaitham is no exception.

Nagadus Emerald

Players can get them by doing the following:

  • Defeating Jadeplume Terrorshrooms or Dendro Hypostasis
  • Nagadus Emerald can be randomly obtained from Chests, Daily Commissions, and Events.
  • Players can convert other types of gemstone into Nagadus Emerald using Dust of Azoth, or merge lesser emeralds into higher tier ones, at a rate of 3:1.


This is a new Ascension Material in 3.4, dropped by Lv. 30+ Wind-Bitten Sandworms.

The pale wing-sheathes hiding in a sandworm’s tail are as thin as the blooming stamens of a flower. It is said that in the past, even before the beginning of time, they used to travel through the moist land under meadows and forests, similar to birds flying across the sky and fish swimming in the water. It is generally believed that their mimicry of flowers is to lure lost prey caught by sandstorms. There is also a theory, however, that their imitation of a blooming flower was inspired by the splendid blossoms countless epochs ago, which have long gone the way of the desert winds.

Sand Grease Pupa

Another new material to debut in 3.4. Players can find them in Wenut Tunnels, deep in the desert where the Quicksand Unagi breed. The hardened shell is meant to protect the larval bodies of the Unagi until they finally acclimate to the conditions of the dry desert.

In the legend of the desert folk, Quicksand Eels and sandworms are all descendants of the giant serpent that once devoured the sun. Although this statement is but groundless, judging from the research on Sand Grease Pupa, it does share many similarities with the body fat of sandworms given their respective composition. It is precisely because of this that sometimes cunning merchants will collect Sand Grease Pupas and grind them into powder to pass off as the high-end spices extracted from the body fat of sandworms.

Faded Red Satin

Faded Red Satin, Trimmed Red Silk, and Rich Red Brocade are all dropped by Eremites, which are all over the place in Sumeru.
