Genshin Impact Ascension Crystals Guide – Hypostasis, Oceanid, Regisvine Locations

In a lot of other gacha games, characters drop at a higher level depending on their rarity. A five-star unit would drop already leveled up to five stars, for example, and a three-star unit would need to be leveled up and ascended twice. In Genshin Impact, this system works a bit differently. No matter how rare the character is, they start off at the lowest level possible and will need to be ascended five times to reach their maximum potential.

In this guide, we run down all of the different ascension requirements in regards to the rarest of ascension materials: crystals and boss materials.

Genshin Impact Crystal Types

As you can probably guess, the way ascension works in Genshin Impact scales in difficulty as the characters get to a higher and higher level. The crystals you need for the final ascension are much, much rarer than those for the first ascension.

Many of these will require you to defeat Hypostasis enemies. You won’t encounter these until later in the game, but they’re the floating cube type enemies. You’ll know them when you see them. It is worth noting that you will need to consume 40 Original Resin to claim these drops each time. You can’t just grind them constantly without waiting time, recharging with a Fragile resin, or using Primogems (which we don’t recommend).

Traveler Diamond Crystals

Let’s go ahead and get this lone exception out of the way. Your traveler character, whichever one you chose, requires diamonds to ascend to higher levels. These are gained exclusively from adventure rank rewards, thus locking your ascension progress behind game time.

  • 2-Star Ascension- Brilliant Diamond Fragment – Ascension Rank ???
  • 3-Star Ascension – Brilliant Diamond Chunk – Ascension Rank ???
  • 4-Star Ascension – Brilliant Diamond Gemstone – Ascension Rank ???
