How to get  Vajrada Amethyst

Vajrada Amethyst can be dropped by a few Bosses, but the easiest way is to get it from the Thunder Manifestation at Seirai Island’s Amakumo Peak.

The Thunder Manifestation attacks hard and fast, so be sure to bring a healer or a shield creator to survive. It’s immune to Electro attack, and it floats high enough to dodge a lot of melee hits. This Boss is significantly easier in co-op, as one player can draw its aggro while shielded and the toher can take shots at it with an Archer.

You can also craft these by converting the other Ascension gems with Dust of Azoth.

How to get Storm Beads

You get these from the Thunder Manifestation as well.

How to get Old Handguard, Kageuchi Handguard, Famed Handguard

These are dropped by the wandering Samurai enemies that are extremely common throughout Inazuma. Because they’re so common, they’re a little stingy on drops. Even the elite enemies don’t drop more than a single Handguard, so be sure to hunt the Samurai for sport when you see them.

How to get Teachings of Light, Guide to Light, Philosophies of Light

These Talent materials are obtained at Violet Court, south of Amakane Island. The domain gives a bonus to Electro DMG. You’ll be fighting hoards of easy mobs like Hilichurls on the first challenge level, and then Nobushi samurai and Treasure Hoarders later on.

How to get Amakumo Fruit

Amakumo Fruit are thankfully abundant and easy to find. They’re all along the southern edge of Amakumo Peak, the center island around the glowing crater.

How to get Molten Moment

The Weekly Boss drop you need comes from La Signora at Tenshukaku. She starts the fight with her natural Cryo Vision, before switching to her Pyro Delusion. This fight is one of perseverance, and you’ll definitely need a strong healer to stay alive. Be sure to destroy the crystals in the corner of the room as the appear so you don’t take the passive environmental damage.

This fight is also way easier in co-op. Be sure your party has several Elements, as there are phases where you must break through barriers with Elemental Reactions.

The Domain version of this fight is more or less the same as the Story Quest, though the it may be slightly more difficult depending on which level you select.

How to get Crown of Insight

The very rare Crown of Insight is only available as a reward for completing events. You’ll need one to max out just one of a character’s Talents, but there are a limited amount of them. For more information about Crown of Insight, check out our in-depth look here.
