Kazuha ascension guide will require these materials.

1. Vayuda Turquoise Gemstones

What materials does Kazuha need? First of all, he will need Vayuda Turquoise gemstones like his Anemo allies - Jean, Xiao, or Sayu.

Gemstones of all kinds are goods and rewards from completing events, daily commissions, and souvenir shops in Mondstadt and Liyue. You may also come to fight some bosses and Trounce domains as below to get these as specific drops.

  • Anemo Hypostasis
  • Stormterror/Dvalin
  • Maguu Kenki

Defeat Anemo Hypostasis to get Anemo items for Kazuha.

2. Treasure Hoarder Insignias

Any character requires some common enemy drop in their ascension and Kazuha is not an exception. One of Genshin Kazuha ascension materials is insignias from Treasure Hoarders. You can get three kinds of Insignias from defeating the Treasure Hoarders:

  • Treasure Hoarder Insignias: drops from any Treasure Hoarder.
  • Silver Raven Insignias: drops from Treasure Hoarders level 40+.
  • Golden Raven Insignias: drops from Treasure Hoarders level 60+.

Although you can find this enemy anywhere in Teyvat, they appear more frequently in Liyue ruins.

3. Sea Ganoderma

This specialty can be found exclusively in Inazuma. These blue plants which scatter through Inazuman coastlines’ shallow waters are also ascension materials for Yae Miko.

Apart from farming it in the wild, you may also grow it in the Serenitea Pot or purchase it from Obata whose shop locates in Ritou. Each stock will give 5 Sea Ganoderma, each of which costs 1,000 Mora.

Kazuha materials include Sea Ganoderma which can be collected along Inazuman shores.

4. Marionette Cores

Even though he's an Anemo character, Kazuha doesn't use an Anemo Hypostasis drop to ascend. Instead, he'll need Marionette Cores, which are dropped by the Maguu Kenki, a normal boss in Inazuma.

While the wandering samurai is an Anemo user, his ascension does not require Anemo Hypostasis. Instead, his essential drops are Marionette Cores which you can collect after defeating Maguu Kenki.

This normal boss is located on Yashiori Island, near where you can find some Dendrobium plants.

This drop was previously only available on the Golden Apple Archipelago map.

2. Crowns of Insight

Each talent requires a Crown of Sight in order to reach level 10 from level 9. It means every character in Genshin Impact will need three Crowns of Insight for fully-enhanced abilities.

You can get these rare items from events or offering to the Frostbearing Tree or Sacred Sakura Tree.

Crowns Of Insight

3. Gilded Scale

Notice: To be able to level Kazuha’s elemental attacks to level 15, players need to pull his C3 and C5 constellations.
