Genshin Impact Anemo characters will all need the same item when ascending: Vayuda Turquoise. This elemental gem is the one that corresponds to Anemo, making it a necessity in the ascension of those with Anemo Vision (and Venti).
Vayuda Turquoise can be found the same way as other elemental gems, but with some slight differences. Whether a player is looking for Shards, Fragments, Chunks, or Gems, this guide will outline all of the ways to earn Vayuda Turquoise, as well as the characters that use it.
Which characters use Vayuda Turquoise
Each Anemo character will need Vayuda Turquoise to ride, except for the Anemo-wielding Traveler, who uses his own unique gem called Brilliant Diamond.
The number and quality of gems required changes with each level of ascension. Here is a breakdown:
|Climb level||character level||Gem Required|
There are currently only seven Anemo characters (and the Traveler), including the following:
Genshin Impact Bosses That Drop Vayuda Turquoise
There are very few bosses and weekly bosses (next section) that drop Vayuda Turquoise, compared to other elemental gems. There are only two standard bosses that will drop it:
The higher the levels of these bosses, the more gems of better quality they can obtain:
|Global level||boss level||Gems|
Genshin Impact Weekly Bosses That Drop Vayuda Turquoise
As mentioned, the bosses that can drop Vayuda Turquoise are few and far between. While there are two standard bosses that can, there is only one weekly boss that can reward Vayuda Turquoise upon defeat:
The higher Dvalin’s domain level when defeated, the better the potential gems:
|Shards||I, II, III, IV|
|fragments||I, II, III, IV|
|Parts||II, III, IV|
|Precious stones||III, IV|
Other ways to get Vayuda Turquoise in Genshin Impact
Luckily, there are several other ways to get Vayuda Turquoise.
A simple but unreliable method of earning elemental gems of all kinds is by completing daily commissions for the Adventurer’s Guild. After completing the four assigned daily tasks, players can head to any guild branch and speak with Katheryne, who will grant bonus rewards.
These rewards may include Elemental Ascension Gem Shards. The problem is that it’s always Slivers and the item is random, so it won’t always be Vayuda Turquoise. Fortunately, the next two subsections will describe a few ways around this problem.
Arts and crafts
With the help of a crafting bench, players can create higher quality gems from lower level gems. It works at a 3:1 ratio, as shown here:
|3x Ribbon||+||300||=||1x Shard|
|3x shard||+||900||=||1x Piece|
|3x Piece||+||2,700||=||1x gemstone|
It costs a lot of gems to level up, but it’s something most players will find themselves doing quite often, as high-level gems like chunks and gems are very hard to come by. any other method in this guide.
The other way to get the wrong elemental gems is to convert them. Like the crafting described above, this will require a crafting bench, but it will also require some Azoth Dust. This strange substance can be purchased with Stardust in Paimon’s Bargains, where it costs 5 Stardust for 10 jars.
With this conversion process, the following gems can be transformed into Vayuda Turquoise: Agnidus Agate, Prithiva Topaz, Shivada Jade or Vajrada Amethyst.
Higher tier gems will require more Azoth Dust to convert:
|gem level||Azoth Dust Required|
After obtaining the Parametric Transformer, players can use it to convert materials into items. With this process, “sets” of items can be created, some of which include elemental gems. One set contains two Elemental Gem shards and another contains a single Elemental Gem Fragment. The item obtained is random, much like the Adventurer’s Guild bonus rewards.
There is no way to guarantee which item sets will be produced, but the odds are increased by using certain materials. The following materials increase the chance of receiving Elemental Ascension Gems:
|piece of iron||Horn Lapis||firm arrowhead||Hunter’s Sacrificial Knife|
|piece of tinplate||Noctilucous Jade||Sharp arrowhead||Agent’s Sacrificial Knife|
|piece of crystal||Starsilver||Weathered Arrowhead||Inspector’s Sacrificial Knife|
|piece of magic crystal||crystal marrow||Sango Pearl||Pearl Loach|
|piece of amethyst||crystal core||Electro Crystal|
Often, time-limited events can be a source of Ascension Gems. Many events have reward shops that contain elemental gems, while others may offer the gems as rewards for meeting certain criteria more directly.
Not all events have elemental gems as a reward, but it is a method that can be quite easy.
