Where to Find Naku Weed

If you are looking to farm Naku Weed you’ll have to leave the shores of the mainland. As it stands, the only place to find these plants are on the islands of Inazuma. The largest cluster of them is found around the cliffs of Tatarasuna. Gathering all of these alone will net you half of all the available nodes. The other most obvious place to farm Naku Weed is near the Grand Nakukami Shrine.

There are 22 Naku Weed around Tatarasuna with an additional 10 by the sacred shrine. If you really stretch yourself by visiting Musoujin Gorge and get every single node on the map, you can walk away with 44 Naku per refresh. How quickly you accrue the resource ultimately depends on how much time you’re willing to spend getting the harder to reach nodes.

You can also purchase Naku Weed from Aoi in Inazuma City. You can find her at Tsukumomono Groceries. She charges 1,000 Mora for each.

Remember, the plants will respawn around every two to three real-world days. Because of this, I recommend hitting both areas areas. This will maximize your farm, reducing the amount of time spent waiting for them to refresh.

Naku Weed Uses

At the time of writing this, Naku Weed will primarily be used for character ascensions. Right now there are no active characters who require this material for ascension. However, according to datamining the upcoming 5-Star Yoimiya will use them. You can also use them to make Electroculus Resonance Stone. These can help you locate nearby Electroculi. Most choose to avoid that and instead use online maps to help them find all of the locations.

It takes 168 Naku Weed to reach Ascension 6 for a single character, so I recommend you start farming early. Even if Yoimiya isn’t available right now, there’s always a chance you could pick her up in the next banner.
