How To Use Violetgrass Genshin Impact

Where To Find Violetgrass Genshin Impact

It's difficult to know where to find Violetgrass Genshin, because the plants usually grow in cliff sides. Without some instructions on the Violetgrass farming route, it can be quite tricky to detect their locations.

Players will need to climb up and find the purple plant sprouting out of the rock. You can use the Genshin Impact Interactive map to see the spots where they can spawn.

A few shrubs grow mostly on various cliff faces across Liyue. However, Violetgrass is more usually seen in certain areas like Wuwang Hill, Mt. Aocang, and Mt. Tianheng. Check out the Violetgrass farming route below:

1. Wuwang Hill

If you head southernmost waypoint, you can go on and go northeast to find a few on the cliffs here. The plants also grow in a cluster to the west of the waypoint, near the ruins.

2. Mt. Aocang

South of this waypoint is a set of suspended bridges between the cliffs. There are some clusters of Violetgrass around here and the cliff crop between Mt. Hulao and Qingyun Peak.

3. Mt. Tianheng

It is great to glide around Liyue Harbor’s West as there are violet grass crops on the west of Mt. Tianberg. Players can also find them north of both waypoints in this region. Head to Qingju Pass and the cliffs south of Danyu Ruins, too.

Although Violetgrass isn’t exclusive in these areas and can be found at places with cliffs, the spots we mentioned above are the easiest locations to farm due to their higher chance of spawns.

168 Violetgrass is needed for a single character to reach Ascension 6, so it’s best to start farming as early as you can. Even though you may not have Xinyan or Qiqi yet, there is always an opportunity to pick them up later in the game.

Tip: If you have Yanfei or Qiqi, you can see specialties marked with a hand icon on the minimap. This feature can help with navigation big time, although the specialties will be displayed all the same.
