Genshin Impact has seen the addition of new ascension materials: Spectral Hearts, Spectral Husks, and Spectral Nucleus. These can be obtained after players kill Specters on two islands in Inazuma.

Our guide will instruct you to find Genshin Impact Specters, how to defeat them, and collect their materials.

Where to farm Specters and how to defeat them.

1. Genshin Impact Specters location

Players can find Specters on Seirai island and Watatsumi island in Genshin Impact.

Seirai Island

The first spot to farm Specters is Seirai Island. The map below has all locations for you to head to.

There are plentiful Specters here and they spawn in a group of 2-3 mobs. Although this makes defeating them quite dangerous if you are on low level, the process remains worthwhile as you can take them out in a short time.

If you are on Seirai Island to farm the Specters, stay alarmed of the Amakumo Peak which has lighting and thunderstorms that can strike you down. There are also other quests to complete on the island such as Seirai Island Rotating Cube Puzzles, so pay attention to make things smoother for yourself.

Watatsumi Island

On Watatsumi Island, head all the way to the west and you’ll find the farming route for Genshin Impact Specters.

2. How to defeat Genshin Impact Specters

One of the reasons why it is irritating to fight Specters Genshin Impact is that they float and hover in the air.

Recommended characters

It is hard to reach specters if you use characters who wield claymores or swords. They might be hit at best with certain bursts or skills, but using catalyst or bow wielders is better. Diona, Klee, Fischl, or Ganyu can deal with these mobs in no time.

For the unknown, Specters have three elemental affinities: Anemo, Hydro, and Geo. They are immune to these elements and when they take damage, they will be stronger and bigger until they actually explode and die.

Instead of sword and claymore users, use catalyst or bow wielders will make defeating these creatures much easier.

Things to remember when fighting Specters

There are some minor issues that players will encounter.

Most of the projectiles from Genshin Impact Specters tend to strike directly at your character. Also, they do not die right away when their HP is out. They may explode and leave an AoE behind that causes damage. Therefore, it is better to wait a few seconds before you come to pick their drops.

3. Genshin Impact Specter drops

What the Specters drop will depend on your world level as well as the Specter level you go against.

  • Spectral Husks (Specters under level 40)
  • Spectral Hearts and Husks (Level 40-60 Specters)
  • Hearts, Husks, and Spectral Nucleus (Level 60 or higher Specters)

Genshin Impact Specters are the only enemies that give you these Spectral items. They are in need when you want to ascend Sangonomiya Kokomi or Aloy. You also need them to craft the new weapon called The Catch.

Meanwhile, you can use an Alchemy Table to create higher rarity drops. It takes the player 3 Spectral Husks to craft one Spectral Heart and 3 Spectral Hearts to make one Spectral Nucleus.
