Genshin Impact Raiden Shogun materials list for ascension and Talents

A royal collection

Getting all the Genshin Impact Raiden Shogun materials takes you to one of Inazuma's most atmospheric - and underused - islands, with some detours along the way as you stop to challenge every swordsman you meet.

Raiden Shogun is one of just two Inazuma Electro characters to use the Storm Beads boss drop, so there’s not much competition for that material. Several characters use Handguard items and Light talent books, though, including Yae Miko, Ayaka, and Ayato. Make sure to plan ahead if you want to level all of them up, so you don't get caught short.

Our Genshin Impact Raiden Shogun materials list guide lays out everything you need to get the 5-star Electro character powered up. Check out our Raiden Shogun build guide if you're wondering how to kit the almighty shogun out once she's at the right level.

Vajrada Amethyst Electro gemstones come from several bosses, including the Thunder Manifestation, Electro Regisvine, Primo Geovishap, Millennial Pearl Seahorse, and Bathysmal Vishaps. You might also get them from the Stormterror, Childe, and Azhdaha weekly bosses as wekk. Your best bet for Raiden Shogun is getting them from the Thunder Manifestation.

That's because Thunderclap Fruitcore is a boss drop from the Thunder Manifestation on Inazuma's Seirai Island.

Amakumo Fruit also grows on Seirai Island. Head over to our Amakumo Fruit locations guide for some more detailed help.

Handguard items only come from Nobushi and Kairagi sword figthers, These only show up in Inazuma. Our Handguard location guide points out where to look, and you can also use the Bloom of Revelation challenges to raise your chances of encountering several Nobushi at once. You can also exchange Stardust for guards in the Paimon's Bargains section of the in-game shop, which is a much easier way to get the items.

Light books come from the Violet Court Domain in Inazuma on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The Molten Moment item is a boss drop from the weekly La Signora boss in the Shogun's palace in Inazuma City. If you end up with a drop that you don't need, take it to an alchemy table, where you can transform it into the right one.

Crowns of Insight are rare, so think carefully before deciding to upgrade Raiden Shogun's talents all the way. Her burst and elemental skill are the most important, so focus your materials on those two first.
