Ganyu Ascension Materials Full Guide: Genshin Impact

Official Ganyu Art (Photo from Genshin Impact)

This article serves as a Ganyu Ascension Materials Guide. Ganyu is an elegant-looking female character in Genshin Impact. Moreover, she is a Cryo Bow DPS (could be a sub-dps) that deals AoE DMG through her fully-charged attack.

She is one of the best damage dealers out there despite her preference for bow-type weapons. But to truly maximize her damage, players should completely level up her character stats and the necessary abilities.

Lucky for everyone, she is one of the earlier released characters back in 1.2 when Liyue was recently released. New players can easily build this character as Liyue is more accessible than the other regions in Teyvat.

Her banner was released back in Jan. 2021, Jan. 2022, and Sept. 2022.

Farming materials for a fully leveled DPS takes a long time. Hence, players must commit to playing Genshin daily and farm each material. Below are the places to get material for Ganyu’s Ascension.

The gems can be easily farmed through the bosses scattered around Teyvat. They have no limit, unlike weekly bosses, but fighting one does cost 40 resin.

Here are the monsters that give the materials Ganyu needs:

  • Cryo Hypostasis
  • Cryo Regisvine
  • Primo Geovishap
  • Lupus Boreas
  • Maguu Kenki
  • Perpetual Mechanical Array
  • Bathysmal Vishap Herd
  • La Signora
  • Childe
  • Aeonblight Drake
  • Iniquitous Baptist
  • Icewind Suite Coppelius

To know where these monsters are, players can access it through the in-game menu.

Defeating the Cryo Regisvine located in Mondstadt is the only way to get the Hoarfrost Core.

Where to Get Qingxing? Qingxin (Photo from Genshin Impact)

Qingxing is a white flower that’s only located in Liyue and the Chasm. Furthermore, players must scour the mountains as they can only be found in high-latitude areas. Thus, here is a zoomed-out photo of where players can find some of the Qingxing in Liyue.

Other characters that need this local material are Shenhe and Xiao. Additionally, if players have Qiqi or Yanfei, it is recommended to equip them while farming, as they show nearby local materials on the map.

Ganyu’s Talent Level-Up Materials

It’s important to note that these calculations are for reaching the maximum upgrade level fully of one talent only. If players want to level up Ganyu’s Basic Attack, Skill, and burst, these calculations should be multiplied by three.

Ganyu’s Abilities

Ganyu’s main priority should be her Normal Attack as her main source of damage would be her charged attack, which sends a Frostflake Icy Arrow. Once players unlock one of the talents, it will increase the Crit Rate of the ATK, making the next Frostflake arrow shot stronger, and so forth.

“After firing a Frostflake Arrow, the CRIT Rate of subsequent Frostflake Arrows and their resulting bloom effects is increased by 20% for 5s.”

Effects of the Talent: Undivided Heart

Her elemental burst, Celestial Shower, rains multiple shards of ice. While it’s an AoE Cryo DMG, it’s not a consistent amount of damage. Furthermore, once players get the talent “Harmony between Heaven and Earth,” the burst will deal an additional 20 percent Cryo DMG Bonus, impacting the level of Celestial Shower.

Meanwhile, her elemental skill will leave a single ice lotus behind. It deals Cryo damage as it taunts nearby enemies. Furthermore, the lotus scaled off Ganyu’s max HP. If players love this game mechanic of Ganyu’s, her C2 gives an additional charge level.

The only place players can get the diligence books for Ganyu’s talent materials is at the Taishan Mansion (a.k.a Domain of Mastery) at Liyue. The domain is located between Qingyun Peak and¬†Cuijie Slope.

The Diligence set is only available for specific days, such as Tuesday and Friday. Likewise, Sunday is a special day where players can choose any set, including Diligence.

Other than Ganyu, other characters use the Diligence set. They are:

  • Chongyun
  • Ganyu
  • Hu Tao
  • Kazuha
  • Xiangling
  • Yaoyao
  • Yun Jin

Players can get the rare boss material from fighting Childe in Liyue. Moreover, Childe is one of the eight weekly bosses in Genshin.

Players can only fight three weekly evil bosses per week. Hence, make sure to use your resources wisely.

The crown is one of the rarest materials in Genshin Impact. Players can only access these Crowns from limited-time events and permanent mini-events scattered across the map. For instance, one such mini-event players can finish is the ‘Frostbearing Tree’ located in Dragonspine. Another would be the ‘Sacred Sakura,’ which is a tree that watches over Inazuma.
