For those who want to hit the Xiao Banner when it arrives in the game of Genshin Impact, you have to do some preparations. Farming up everything you require will take some time. So, knowing exactly how much of each resource you need to get your hands on will be a big help. In this page, we are going to tell you everything you need to max out Xiao, and where to get it all.
Everything you need to prepare for Xiao
The game of Genshin Impact changes nearly every month. Usually, a major update comes to Genshin Impact every six weeks. Genshin Impact version 1.3 is available in February, bringing the new characters such as the Adeptus, Xiao to the game. To get ready for Xiao’s arrival, now you have to farm a few essential items for the character. Using the current Closed Beta test server as a baseline, we have fairly solid information on what Xiao will need to increase his Ascension and Talent levels.
Here are the items that you need to farm before Xiao arrives:
All Ascension Materials
- Vayuda Turquoise Silver x 1.
- Vayuda Turquoise Fragment x 9.
- Vayuda Turquoise Chunk x 9.
- Vayuda Turquoise Gemstone x 6.
- Juvenile Jade x 46.
- Qingxin x 168.
- Slime Condensate x 36 (18 for levels and 18 for Talents).
- Slime Secretions x 96 (30 for levels and 66 for Talents).
- Slime Concentrates x 123 (36 for levels and 93 for Talents).
- 9 Teachings of Prosperity.
- 63 Guide to Prosperity.
- 114 Philosophies of Prosperity.
- Shadow of the Warrior x 18 1.62
- Hero’s Wit XP x 421.
- Million Mora
Vayuda Turquoise Silver, Fragment, Chunk, and Gemstone
Xiao is an Anemo character, meaning he requires a ton of Vayuda Turquoise for Ascensions. You are able to farm these items by defeating Anemo Hypostasises in Mondstadt. Also, Vayuda Turquoise can be purchased in small sums from souvenir shops in Liyue and Mondstadt. Xiao needs one silver, nine fragments, nine chunks, and six gemstones.
Juvenile Jade is the resource which you will not be able to farm right now, as it is simply rumored to arrive in the game. As we know that Xiao’s Banner would arrive with Genshin Impact update version 1.3. It means this resource potentially will as well if it really is one of his upgrade materials. The leaks signify a new Primo Geovishap boss fight which will drop this item.
Like other Anemo characters, Xiao will need Hurricane Seeds, but miHoYo seemingly has other plans for the character. Hurricane Seeds were originally the upgrade material which he used in the closed beta. In recent updates, his final Ascension material has shifted to Juvenile Jade, an item which can only be acquired by defeating the new boss (the Ancient Geovishap). This boss added in version 1.3, making it impossible to farm right now. This is likely a permanent change for Xiao. If he does revert to Hurricane Seeds, you are going to obtain those when you defeat Anemo Hyposasises for Vayuda Turquoise.
Slime Condensate, Secretions, and Concentrates
Xiao will require Slime Condensate, Slime Secretions, and Slime Concentrate throughout leveling up his character. These are necessities in increasing his talent level and ascending his level cap. All three items are discovered by killing slimes. Slime Condensate is dropped by any slain slime. Slime Secretions are dropped by level 40 and up slimes. Slime Concentrate is dropped by slimes which are level 60 and higher.
A good location to farm Slimes will be discovered below a cliff facing the Guyun Stone Forest in Liyue. If you drop into the watery area, you are going to find a small Slime squadron. Also, Slimes can be found as enemies in Daily Quests or during Leyline Outcroppings.
When you want to max out Xiao’s talents, you are going to require 18 Slime Condensates, 66 Slime Secretions, and 93 Slime Concentrates. In other cases, if you want to push Xiao to his highest level, you are going to require 18 Slime Condensates, 30 Slime Secretions, and 36 Slime Concentrates. It means that you have to try farming a total of 36 Slime Condensates, 96 Slime Secretions, and 123 Slime Concentrates.
Xiao will need some Qingxin to max out his level. He will require 168 Qingxin flowers to reach his highest Ascension level. You are able to find these floral goodies in a few separate places. Also, you are able to buy them in sets of 10 at Bubu Pharmacy. The inventory will be restocked every three days.
If you want to find them in the wild, the Huaguang Stone Forest and Jueyun Karst are bountiful locations. In Particular, you have to check mountaintops to discover the flower. You are also able to find Qingxin in high supply atop the mountains by Qingce Village. Qingxin is a plant which will only grow at the top of cliffs in Liyue. The Stone Forest is a good easy spot to farm them in, as they are going to grow in clusters near the teleport points, and the Statue of the Seven. It is very easy to grab a quick dozen Qingxin plants here, however they are going to take two to three days to respawn afterward.
Teachings, Guides, and Philosophies of Prosperity
These are able to be farmed on Monday, Thursday, and Sunday at the Taishan Mansion Abyssal Domain near Jueyun Karst.
Shadow of the Warrior
Xiao will need 18 Shadow of the Warrior to max out his talents. This begins being required at Talent level 6. Shadow of the Warrior can be farmed from the Childe Bossfight at the Golden House in Liyue. You have to fight him at Level 70+ to get this to drop. You are able to find this Domain to the south of Liyue Harbor after you have already finished Archon Quest Chapter I, Act 3.
