How to get Prithiva Topaz

Prithiva Topaz is the standard gemstone you need to Ascend Geo characters. You can earn these in random drops from the weekly Bosses, but you’ll have much better luck getting these from the Geo Hypostasis at Guyun Stone Forest.

Unlike other Hypostases, the Geo one doesn’t negate Geo damage. In fact, it’s vulnerable to it. The Geo Hypostasis will create pillars you need to destroy, best done with Geo Skills or Claymores. Explosive effects like Klee’s attacks or the Overloaded reaction will also deal heavy damage to the pillars. Zhongli’s Elemental Skill can also destroy the pillars quickly.

How to get Basalt Pillar

You’ll get Basalt Pillars by defeating the Geo Hypostasis.

How to Get Slime Condensate, Slime Secretions, Slime Concentrate

You’ll have no problems finding these Slime items, as they’re dropped by the most common enemy in the game. You may have overlooked picking up their drops since they are so common, so don’t miss out on them. You’ll be encountering slimes everywhere, and you’ll be sure to get a bunch when you do your daily commissions.

How to Get Teachings of Gold, Guide to Gold, Philosophies of Gold

Zhongli “forgot” his wallet again. You’ll have to teach him the value of money. Head to Taishan Mansion near Jueyun Karst on Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday to earn Gold Talent books.

For the first three levels of this Doman challenge, you’ll be fighting Pyro Slimes that explode and Pyro Abyss Mages. You’ll have six minutes to take out all the enemies.

For the hardest challenge, you fight against two Blazing Axe Mitachurls and two Fatui Pyro Agents. The Agent will be able to explode like the Slimes in earlier difficulties. You have eight minutes to defeat them all.

How to get Cor Lapis

Cor Lapis is a Liyue speciality you can find all round Mt. Hulao. There’s a patch right near the teleport point and few more dotted all along the mountain. There’s a few other places, like the cave across the Hidden Palace of Lianshan Formula in Mingyun Village or the small cave at the western base of Mt. Aozang. You can find some more on the road leading to Qingce Village and by the waterfall on the eastern side. The path to the Pyro Regisvine and Oceanid also have a few spots you can get them.

Yanfei and Qiqi mark the locations of Liyue specialties, so having one of them in your party will make gathering substantially easier.

How to get Tusk of Monoceros Caeli

Tusk of Monoceros Caeli is one of the three drops you can get from the weekly Childe boss at the Golden House, starting at Lv 70. You can only redeem the rewards from this challenge once per week.

Childe hits hard and hits fast, so bring a healer to keep yourself topped up or a shield creator (like Zhongli) to stop some of his harder to dodge attacks like his Narhwal or Electro Riptide bolts.

How to get Crown of Insight

The elusive Crown of Insight is needed to max out a character’s Talent, but Crowns are extraordinarily rare. They’re only awarded by completing events, so there’s only so many you could have gotten. For more information on Crown of Insight, check out our in-depth look here.
