How to get  Shivada Jade

Shivada Jade is the standard Ascension material for Cryo characters. You can get this by defeating the Cryo Regisvine, Cryo Hypostasis, Perpetual Mechanical Array or Primo Geovishap and as a random reward from the weekly Trounce domain bosses. The only way to guarantee this is from the Cryo Regisvine and Hypostasis, but you’ll also earn this or Vajrada Amethyst when fighting the Coral Defenders for Dragonheir’s False Fins.

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

The Coral Defenders Boss you need to defeat for Shenhe is also brand new for 2.4. You need to unlock the Enkanomiya area and complete its story quest before you can battle them.

The two Bathysmal Vishaps you fight during this encounter are two super-powered ones. The main difficulty for this fight is keeping track of two enemies. Their coordinated attacks can be hard to follow, especially before you learn their attack patterns.

They deal True Damage with some of their attacks, and they can also drain your health. True Damage goes through Shields, so bring a healer that can restore your health without using an Elemental Burst.

How to get Whopperflower Nectar, Shimmering Nectar, Energy Nectar

Nectar is a drop from Whopperflowers that you’ll need for quite a few characters and weapons. You’ll want to take down Whopperflowers whenever you see them. They can be tracked with the Adventurer’s Handbook and respawn every day.

They can disguise themselves as normal plants, but the tell is the plant’s item icon will not appear by their name when you approach them.

The Talent books you need for Shenhe can be obtained at Taishan Mansion on Monday, Thursday and Sunday.

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.

This challenge is made substantially easier in co-op, as your damage output will be at least doubled. Focus on making elemental reactions on the same enemy to get them out of the way before teaming up on the next one. If you have a Ganyu or Amber on your team, their Elemental Skills can draw the Fatui Agents’ aggro. The decoys are most useful for sponging up the Agent’s deadly dash attacks that can kill you if you’re not careful.

How to get Qingxin

Qingxin is a somewhat difficult Liyue Specialty to find. It grows on mountain tops, so the best way to find them is to go to Mt. Aocang and glide to the mountain tops south.

There are more on the western side of Wuwang Hill, and some on the peaks by the Geo Hypostasis at Guyun Stone Forest.

How to get Hellfire Butterfly

The Weekly Boss drop you need comes from La Signora at Tenshukaku. She starts the fight with her Cryo Delusion, before switching to her Pyro Vision. This fight is one of perseverance, and you’ll definitely need a strong healer to stay alive.

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 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.
