Vayuda Turquoise

There are 5 bosses that drop Vayuda Turquoise: Stormterror, Scaramouche, Semi-Intransient Matrix, Anemo Hypostasis, Maguu Kenki. Players should grind whoever they want, but the Scaramouche boss is a must-do as he also drops Mirrors of Mushin, which are needed for his talents. The Sandworm in 3.4 should also drop Vayuda Turquoise.

  • Additionally, Vayuda Turquoise can be randomly obtained from Chests, Daily Commissions, and Events.
  • Players can convert other types of gemstone into Vayuda Turquoise using Dust of Azoth, or merge lesser agates into higher tier ones, at a rate of 3:1.


Pseudo-Stamens will drop from the new sandworm boss, Setekh Wenut. It is an apex predator deep in the desert that can use the power of Anemo to a certain extent, which allows it to leave the ground when in combat and enter a floating state.

Legend has it that in the distant past, the scorching desert was once home to fragrant flowers and giant trees, and was inhabited by countless birds and beasts. Legend also has it that the only ones who remember it are the blind predators respectfully and fearfully referred to as "Wenut."

How good is Mika?

Mika is pretty much the new premier support for Eula. His whole skill set is designed around healing (which Eula needs), and Physical damage bonus (which for now benefits only Eula). The attack speed buff from his Skill is also fairly usable for Eula as well. His Cryo element also allow him to battery Eula and give her Elemental Resonance.

Eula May Come Back After Update 3 5
Eula will come back in 3.5

The bonus given by Mika is based on how many enemies player manages to hit with his Skill. For each enemy hit, the active character would gain one buff stack of 10% Physical damage (max 3). The 2nd passive increase the max stack to 4 and give an extra stack.

This means in single target scenario, the maximum Phys damage bonus Mika can give is only 20%, but if there are 3 enemies, players can get up to 40% instead. Similar to Faruzan, Mika's C6 is fairly busted. It increases the max Phys buff stack to 5 (50% DMG) and gives the active character an extra 60% Physical Crit DMG. Eula users should aim to get C6 Mika.
