We've got all the information on the latest hero coming to Genshin Impact's 2.8 update - so here's the lowdown on the Shikanoin Heizou materials you'll need to Ascend him.
Genshin Impact unfortunately suffered a delay in its update release schedule, but that doesn't stop new characters and tons of information flooding out for us to get excited about. Anemo Catalyst character Shikanoin Heizou is debuting in the 2.8 version update, and is likely to be the last Inazuma character we get. Fun fact - he's the first male Catalyst, too. We can prepare for his ascension and upgrading talents with the following materials.
Shikanoin Heizou's Ascension Materials
As with every Genshin Impact character, you'll need a laundry list of specific items to ascend Shikanoin Heizou. It starts off fairly simple and gets more demanding.

Where to Farm Heizou's Materials
Heizou's materials mostly revolve around a few types of items: Raven Insignias, Transience books, and Onikabuto bugs.
- Treasure Hoarder, Silver Raven, and Golden Raven Insignia
- Thankfully, these can be found in similar ways. To get Treasure Hoarder and Silver Raven Insignias, you need to hunt down and beat Treasure Hoarders that are Level 40 or more. The Golden Raven are dropped by Treasure Hoarders level 60 and above. They can be found roaming Liyue. You can also turn Treasure Horder Insignias into Silver Raven Insignias.
- Vayuda Turquoise Slivers, Fragments, Chunks, and Gemstones
- These pesky gems are found as rewards for defeating the following: Stormterror Dvalin, Anemo Hypostasis, and Maguu Kenki. These battles can be redone, and farming these items is necessary for the Anemo characters. Slivers can be purchased at the souvenir shops, which can make this a little easier. You can use the lesser items to craft the greater, too.
- Runic Fangs
- This particular item is a newly used ascension material. It can be found in one place only: as a drop from defeating the Ruin Serpent located in the Chasm's Underground Mines.
- These cute, purple beetles are found in areas of Electro energy - specifically on trees. They are only in the Inazuma region. Their respawn rate is every two days, but there are plenty across Yashiori, Kannazuka, and Narukami islands.
- Teachings, Guide, and Philosophies of Transience Books
- These items can be gained from Violet Court. They are available Monday, Thursday, and Sunday. You can use the Teachings to craft Guides, and Guides to craft Philosophies as well.
- Tears Of The Calamitous God
- This particular item is gained as a reward from level 70 and above of the End of the Oneiric Euthymia.
- Crown Of Insight
- Crowns of Insight can be a pesky item to obtain - they are only offered through limited-time events, or Offerings such as the Frostbearing Tree and Sacred Sakura.
