Genshin Impact: Candace’s Ascension Materials and Locations (Updated November 2022)

Genshin Impact - Candace's ascension materials

3.2 UPDATE: The game adjusted the name of one of Candace’s ascension materials from Redcrest to Henna Berry.

Candace is a 4-star Hydro character in Genshin Impact.

This 4-star Hydro character is the Guardian of Aaru Village, and seeing the village in peace is enough to make Candace happy. As for her abilities on the battlefield, she would make a great support character who can infuse melee weapons with Hydro.

If you’re planning to add this character to your team, you must farm for Candace’s ascension materials. In this guide, we have listed everything that Candace needs. You can also bring out Candace’s potential by checking out our Candace Build Guide here.

On the other hand, if you’re wondering where you can find Candace’s ascension materials, check them out below:


This group of gems is used for ascending Hydro characters. You can obtain them primarily by fighting Normal Bosses and Weekly Bosses.

Weekly Bosses that drop Varunada Lazurite– Confront Stormterror
– Enter the Golden House
– Beneath the Dragon-Queller
Normal Bosses that drop Varunada Lazurite– Rhodeia of Loch
– Primo Geovishap
– Hydro Hypostasis


The LIGHT GUIDING TETRAHEDRON is dropped only by the Normal boss called Algorithm of Semi-Intransient Matrix of Overseer Network released in Genshin Impact Version 3.1. This boss does NOT drop Varunada Lazurite gems, so you might consider farming for them separately or converting the gems that you currently have.

If you’re new to the game, you can craft higher rarity gems or convert one gem into another via Alchemy. You can do this by interacting with the crafting benches in the different cities in Teyvat.



This material is a local specialty in Sumeru. Previously known as Redcrest, Henna Berry can only be found in the desert subregion of the Dendro nation. Check out the map below for Henna Berry’s location or learn more about this Local Specialty through our article called “Where to Find Henna Berry.”

Satin, Silk, and Brocade are dropped by Eremite mercenaries in Sumeru. If you’re running low on these materials and are unsure where you can find some Eremite enemies, you can check the enemy’s location by going to the Paimon Menu > Adventurer Handbook > Enemies > The Eremites > Navigate.

You can also craft higher rarity Eremite drops via Alchemy or get some from the Stardust Exchange.
