Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu Materials

The second photo on this official post by Genshin Impact on Twitter confirms the Ascension materials we'll need for Kuki Shinobu. Here's what you need to level up:

Level Items
201 Vajrada Amethyst Sliver, 3 Naku Weed, 3 Spectral Husk, 20k Mora
403 Vajrada Amethyst Fragment, 2 Runic Fang, 10 Naku Weed, 15 Spectral Husk, 40k Mora
506 Vajrada Amethyst Fragment, 4 Runic Fang, 20 Naku Weed, 12 Spectral Heart, 60k Mora

706 Vajrada Amethyst Chunk, 12 Runic Fang, 45 Naku Weed, 12 Spectral Nucleus, 100k Mora
806 Vajrada Amethyst Gemstone, 20 Runic Fang, 60 Naku Weed, 24 Spectral Nucleus, 120k Mora

In total, that's:

  • 28 Vajrada Amethyst items
  • 18 Spectral Husk, 30 Spectral Heart, and 36 Spectral Nucleus
  • 46 Runic Fang
  • 168 Naku Weed
  • 420,000 Mora

If you're planning on leveling up Yelan as well, there will be overlap with the Runic Fang. If you don't want to grind that much, make sure to consider who would benefit your party the most before deciding which character to focus on.

You'll also need roughly 410 Hero's Wit to fully level Shinobu up.

Kuki Shinobu Talent Materials

If you want to level up Kuki's talents, this is what to aim for. Bear in mind that, as always, you're better off picking which talents suit your needs the most instead of trying to level them all up. If you want Shinobu as a healer, for example, focus on her Skill and maybe her normal attack.

Level Materials
23 Teachings of Elegance, 6 Spectral Husk, 12.5k Mora
32 Guide to Elegance, 2 Spectral Heart, 17.5k Mora
44 Guide to Elegance, 4 Spectral Heart, 25k Mora
56 Guide to Elegance, 6 Spectral Heart, 30k Mora
69 Guide to Elegance, 9 Spectral Heart, 37.5k Mora
74 Philosophies of Elegance, 4 Spectral Nucleus, 1 Tears of the Calamitous God, 120k Mora
86 Philosophies of Elegance, 6 Spectral Nucleus, 1 Tears of the Calamitous God, 260k Mora
912 Philosophies of Elegance, 9 Spectral Nucleus, 2 Tears of the Calamitous God, 450k Mora
1016 Philosophies of Elegance, 12 Spectral Nucleus, 2 Tears of the Calamitous God, 1 Crown of Insight, 700k Mora

All total for Shinobu's 3 main talents, that's:

  • 93 Spectral Nucleus, 66 Spectral Heart, 16 Spectral Husk
  • 186 Diligence books
  • 18 Tears of the Calamitous God
  • 3 Crowns of Insight
  • 4.957 million Mora

A lot, in other words.

Where to Farm Kuki Shinobu Materials

  • Vajrada Amethyst

These are drops from the Electro Hypostasis in Mondstadt and the Thunder Manifestation on Seirai Island. The Thunder Manifestation is a more convenient boss to farm, since you'll be on Seirai Island for another material as well.

  • Spectral-series items

Spectral Husk and its higher-leveled variations come from Specters. These enemies mostly call Seirai Island and Watatsumi Island their home, though you'll find them in greater numbers on Seirai Island.

  • Runic Fang

This item drops from the new Rune Serpent boss in the Chasm, though as mentioned, you'll need it for Yelan as well.

  • Naku Weed

Naku Weed is a rarer regional specialty in Inazuma. It grows in small numbers on Tatarasuna, northeast of the forge, but your best bet for farming it in greater quantities is, again, on Seirai Island. Check out they Teyvat Interactive map for full details.

  • Elegance books

The Elegance-series items only come from the Violet Court Domain, though you can also earn them from in-game events on occasion.

  • Mora

The best way to earn money in Genshin Impact is farming Leylines of Wealth, the golden bubbles on the world map. You'll get extra if you spend Condensed Resin to claim the rewards and even more if you complete the challenges during a Leyline Overflow event.
