The upcoming Genshin Impact 3.1 update is introducing new characters who have been awaited for quite a while now. After Sumeru is opened, characters like Nilou, Cyno, and Candace are gathering fans here and there.

And as now as the new version is arriving soon, you will want to gather materials for these three cuties. Let’s see the ascension materials for Nilou, Cyno, and Candace below.

Cyno ascension materials

Cyno Genshin Impact
Cyno is finally arriving in Genshin Impact.

The ascension materials for Cyno include Scarab, Thunder Fruitcore, Divining Scroll series, and Vajrada Amethyst Gemstone series.

For Scarab, you can find this local specialty in Sumeru after version 3.1 is released.

The Vajrada Amethyst Gemstones and Thunderclap Fruitcores can be dropped by the new Electro Regisvine. On another hand, you can defeat the Steeple of Ignorance domain on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays and use resin to gain the Admonition talent books for Cyno.

The Electro Gemstones can also be farmed as you defeat Electro Manifestation or Electro Hypostasis.

You can get the scrolls for Cyno’s ascension from Samachurls. And finally, the Mudra of the Malefic General is a weekly boss drop from Raiden Shogun’s trounce domain.

Nilou ascension materials

Except for Perpetual Caliber, the remaining ascension materials for Nilou can be found in the rainforest of Sumeru. This drop can be collected from a new boss called Aeonblight Drake. The boss will be released alongside Sumeru’s Desert in the forthcoming version 3.1.

In the meantime, players can start collecting Varunada Lazurite Gemstones from:

  • Primo Geovishap
  • Oceanid
  • Hydro Hypostasis

You can also choose to focus your resin on the Steeple of Ignorance domain to farm the Praxis talent books on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

On another hand, for Nilou ascension materials and talent level-up materials, you should also use interactive maps to find and stack up Fungi drops and Padisarah.

Similar to Cyno and Nilou, some of Candace’s ascension materials are waiting for their introduction in patch 3.1. These include Light Guiding Tetrahedron – a new boss drop, and local specialty Redcrest from the Sumeru desert.

On another hand, Candace also needs Eremite headbands for ascension and talent level-ups. You can get these from the Eremite enemies scattered all across Sumeru.

Admonition talent books will also be in need for Candace’s talent level-up. Lastly, Candace's ascension materials will also consist of Tears of the Calamitous God. You can farm these from Raiden Shogun’s weekly boss.
