On the other hand, if you’re wondering where you can find Nilou’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
– Aeonblight Drake

The PERPETUAL CALIBER and VARUNADA LAZURITE GEMS are dropped by the Aeonblight Drake. You can hit two birds with one stone (get gems and Perpetual Caliber) by fighting this boss.

This Normal boss is located in Ardravi Vally, Sumeru. Check out the map below for your reference:

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.


As a local specialty in Sumeru, Padisarah can only be found in the region. Check out the map below for Padisarah‘s locations. For a more detailed guide, check out our Padisarah locations guide here.

Spores, Pollen, and Cyst Dust are dropped by several kinds of Fungi in Sumeru. If you’re running low on these materials and are unsure where you can find some Fungi, you can check the enemy’s location by going to the Paimon Menu > Adventurer Handbook > Enemies > Fungus > Navigate.

You can also craft higher rarity Fungi drops via Alchemy.
