Genshin Impact is all ready for its latest updates, starting from the new Genshin Impact 2.1 trailer, new locations, characters, to a new archon. You will eventually meet Raiden Shogun, the latest addition to the list of Genshin Impact 5-star characters, as she will become an obtainable character via wishes.

In preparation for the banner for Baal, you will want to farm her ascension materials in advance. So check out Baal ascension materials, talent materials, and more.

Check out the ascension materials for Raiden Shogun aka Baal as the banner is approaching soon.

Baal ascension materials

As Baal is the Electro archon, you may have guessed that she will need a large number of Vajrada Amethysts in as many forms as possible. And it’s correct. A good bunch of these purple stones will be in need.

Fortunately, you can attain these guys in the game by fighting Electro Hypostasis or the Trounce Domain bosses such as Stormterror or Childe.

Like some speculations pointed out and the already available items for other characters, you will likely need this amount for each Vajrada Amethyst’s quality.

  • Vajrada Amethyst Sliver – 1
  • Vajrada Amethyst Gemstone - 6
  • Handguards
  • Vajrada Amethyst Fragment - 9
  • Vajrada Amethyst Chunk - 9
Vajrada Amethyst
Apart from Vajrada Amethyst stones of all variants, you will also need Handguards.

Likewise, Baal will also very likely need many of Inazuma's handguard materials. These include Kageuchi Handguard, Famed Handguards, and Old Handguards.

They will be acquired as not just Baal ascension materials but also her talent ascension. Although miHoYo has not confirmed the deets, its looks as though the handguards will be part of her ascension.

Baal's talent materials

When it comes to ascending Baal, it looks like you will need all levels of Light scrolls and additional handguards as well. The scrolls can be farmed in Violet Court – one of the Genshin Impact talent ascension domains, on Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday.

This is the amount Baal will need:

  • Philosophies of Light - 114
  • Guide to Light - 63
  • Teachings of Light - 9

Another item is Crowns of Insight, the current rarest item in Genshin Impact.

Crowns Of Insight
Crown of Insight is another essential material in ascending Baal's talent, although its rarity is currently unparalelled.

You can get them via limited-duration events or upgrade the Frostbearing Tree's Gratitude to Lv. 11. Three of them can also be attained when you upgrade the Sacred Sakura's Favor to Levels 5, 15, and 25.

More items to farm for Baal's Banner

Much as obtaining the Electro Archon, there are definitely more required items to level Baal up, but some of these are yet available in the game. That’s why it’s better to focus on what you can get currently.

You will need to farm tons of Mora as well as leveling books namely Hero’s Wits. To get Raiden Shogun to level 90 cap, you would need lots of leveling materials and several million Mora.
