Layla is a brand new 4-star Cryo Sword user in Genshin Impact with all of her Ascension and Talent materials already leaked. Naturally, some players will wish to pre-farm those resources. If that’s the case, then this guide should be of some assistance to those types of gamers.
This article will include both the quantity of each item and how players can obtain them. Infographics and interactive maps will also be shown here for the reader’s convenience.
Genshin Impact pre-farming guide: Layla’s Ascension and Talent Level-Up Materials
The above tweet is a good infographic of her Ascension and Talent Level-Up Materials. However, some Travelers may prefer to know how they can pre-farm everything before she becomes playable. Luckily for them, the vast majority of those items are available.
The only unobtainable one is related to an unreleased weekly boss, and that’s only necessary for getting her Talents to Level 7 or higher. That means Travelers can still max out her regular level and still pre-farm most of her Talent Level-Up Materials.
Pre-Farming Layla’s Ascension Materials
This is what she needs to reach her maximum level in Genshin Impact:
- 1 Shivada Jade Sliver
- 9 Shivada Jade Fragments
- 9 Shivada Jade Chunks
- 6 Shivada Jade Gemstones
- 46 Perpetual Caliber
- 168 Nilotpala Lotus
- 18 Divining Scrolls
- 30 Sealed Scrolls
- 36 Forbidden Curse Scrolls
- 420,000 Mora
All of these items are currently obtainable in Genshin Impact. Both the Shivada Jade items and the Perpetual Calibers are available from the same boss. In this case, Travelers will need to farm the Aeonblight Drake several times.
Taking the northern Teleport Waypoint in Devantaka Mountain and going alongside the eastern outskirt of the mountain with the Four-Leaf Sigils will easily get players to the boss’s lair’s entrance.
The above map should make finding 168 Nilotpala Lotuses more bearable. There is plenty of time before Layla’s release in Genshin Impact 3.2, so it’s fine to wait for this item to take 48 hours to respawn.
The only character who currently needs Nilotpala Lotuses is Tighnari, so it’s not as if many characters are competing for this one resource.
Samachurls drop Divining, Sealed, and Cursed Forbidden Scrolls. They’re scattered all over Teyvat, meaning that farming them should be a breeze for most Genshin Impact players.
Note: Layla will require these three materials for her Talents as well.
Pre-Farming Layla’s Talent Level-Up Materials
This is what she needs to max out all three Talents in Genshin Impact:
- 9 Teachings of Ingenuity
- 63 Guides to Ingenuity
- 114 Philosophies of Ingenuity
- 18 Divining Scrolls
- 66 Sealed Scrolls
- 93 Forbidden Curse Scrolls
- 18 ? from an unknown weekly boss
- 3 Crowns of Insight
- 4,957,500 Mora
Farming the Scrolls was covered in the previous section. That means Layla needs 36 Divining Scrolls, 96 Sealed Scrolls, and 129 Forbidden Curse Scrolls to max out her Level and Talents.
The unknown weekly boss’s drop isn’t currently farmable in Genshin Impact, so that part will be skipped for this pre-farming guide.
All of the Ingenuity Books are available through the Steeple of Ignorance. However, they’re only available on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
Apart from those Talent Level-Up Materials, it’s worth mentioning that major events in every update can give players one Crown of Insight. It’s not quite possible to farm them like the other items listed here, but it’s still easy to get one of them per update if they participate in the main event.
