Finding A Ton of Pinecones, Here’s the Guides!
To cook some food in Genshin Impact, you probably will need pinecones as the main materials. However, pinecones are a good use in a meal. Once you reach Adventure Rank 12, you’re able to unlock the one-time dungeon, that’s Temple of the Wolf. Then, you should complete the task to unlock a recipe for Mondstadt Hash Browns.
In order to unlock a Mondstadt Hash Browns’s recipe, you will need to gather a ton of pinecones before. Here’s how!
Location 1: Find Pinecones in Qingce Village
The first location that you should visit to find pinecones is Qingce Village. You can find this location when you use the teleportation waypoint by the village in Liyue. You will then immediately find a bridge. In this location, you finally will get up to nine pinecones at any given time.
To reach the location, ensure to use the waypoint with “Q” in Qingce on the map for the easiest access. Once you find the pinecones on the bridge located west of Qingce Village, grab them up passing through the bridge. To ease you reach the Qingce Village, use the Genshin Impact map so it will lead you to the location.
Location 2: Find Pinecones in the Stormbearer Mountains
The second location where the pinecones can be found is in the Stormbearer Mountains. However, a cluster of pine cones will be near the Stormbearer Mountains Waypoint and behind the Shrine of the Depths near the Anemo Hypostasis. Generally, you will find about 10 pinecones in this location. So check them under the pine trees.
To reach the Stormbearer Mountains, you need to teleport to the northernmost waypoint on Stormbearer Mountains. Then, you can trek your way up to the Anemo Hypostasis boss. Along the way, you have to run into multiple pine trees picking the numerous Pinecones. However, this is the largest cluster in the area which is directly west of the Anemo boss.
Location 3: Find Pinecones in the Wolvendom
Wolvendom is a region in Mondstadt which is as Andrius’ home, the wolf of the North of the Four Winds and his wolf pack. Wolvendom is directly north of Dawn Winery and features pinecones scattered throughout it.
There are not any clusters as you may find in the previous spots in the area of Genshin Impact. However, it’s so great if you really need some extra pinecones to round out your inventory.
Location 4: Find Pinecones in Cape Oath
The recommended location to find pinecones is Cape Oath. In this location, you will find numerous pine trees with a near-endless supply of pinecones under them just to the north of the teleporter on Cape Oath. However, this spot in Mondstadt can be a great location to farm Electro Crystals and some Iron Ore. That’s why Cape Oath is the reliable place to visit regularly.
Well, those are all locations that you can visit to get a ton of pinecones. All of them will give you a lot of pinecones until having a ton every couple of days.
