Just like any other gacha game, Genshin Impact players must farm the appropriate materials to upgrade their characters. In Genshin Impact\’s case, players must farm the gemstone of the same element as the character they want to Ascend. In an Electro character\’s case, players will need to farm Vajrada Amethyst Gemstones and their less rare pieces to fully Ascend an Electro character to level 90.
Among these Ascension materials, the Gemstones, or orange-rarity ones, are only needed for the final Ascension that a character in Genshin Impact needs. Players can level up their characters all the way to level 80 without them, but if they want their character to be level 90, they are going to need 6 of these Gemstones.
The Vajrada Amethyst Gemstone is the highest rarity (orange) of crystal that Electro characters need to Ascend. Players will also need Vajrada Amethyst Slivers (green), Vajrada Amethyst Fragments (blue), and Vajrada Amethyst Chunks (purple) to Ascend their characters. All four of these materials come from the same sources, and it\’s likely players have already collected them in their travels across Teyvat. The quickest way for a player to get Vajrada Amethyst Gemstones is to use the lesser rarity crystals to craft them, but if they are out of all types of Vajrada Amethyst, they are going to need to go out and spend some Resin in Genshin Impact.
Bosses That Drop Vajrada Amethyst In Genshin Impact
The best way for Genshin Impact players to obtain any kind of Vajrada Amethyst is to spend Resin on World Bosses and Weekly Bosses. The World Bosses cost 40 Resin, so players are only going to be able to farm 4 of these bosses every day unless they top up their Resin. However, getting the amount of Vajrada Amethyst needed to fully Ascend a character can be tedious, especially if the higher rarity Vajrada Amethyst doesn\’t drop, like the Chunks and Gemstones.
There are four World Bosses that drop Vajrada Amethyst. These are the Electro Hypostasis (Mondstadt), Thunder Manifestation (Inazuma), Primo Geovishap (Liyue), and the Coral Defenders (Enkanomiya). In Genshin Impact, The Electro Hypostasis and Thunder Manifestation can only drop the Vajrada Amethyst, so players are guaranteed to get Vajrada Amethyst of some kind when they are defeated. The Primo Geovishap and Coral Defenders can drop other crystal-type Ascension Materials, like Shivada Jade, so players are not guaranteed to obtain Vajrada Amethyst when rewards from these bosses are collected. Therefore, if players want to most efficiently farm Vajrada Amethyst, they should spend their Resin on the Electro Hypostatsis and Thunder Manifestation. It is also worth noting that the higher level a player\’s World is, the higher chance they have to receive higher rarity drops. So an AR 50 player is more likely to receive a Vajrada Amethyst Gemstone than an AR 40 player.
There are also four Weekly Bosses that can drop Vajrada Amethyst. These are Confront Stormterror (Stormterror – Mondstadt), Enter the Golden House (Childe – Liyue), Beneath the Dragon-Queller (Azhdaha – Liyue), and End of Oneiric Euthymia (Raiden Shogun – Inazuma). While none of these bosses are guaranteed to drop Vajrada Amethyst, they have a good drop chance, so players will likely passively gain more Vajrada Amethyst when defeating these bosses for the week. Also, the higher the difficulty of the boss that the players complete, the higher chance to get higher rarity rewards. For example, the Vajrada Amethyst Gemstone can only drop on the 3rd and 4th difficulties of the Weekly Bosses, while the 1st and 2nd difficulties can only drop the Vajrada Amethyst materials of lesser rarity. So if a player wants to farm Vajrada Amethyst Gemstones, they should complete the Weekly Bosses in Genshin Impact on the highest difficulty they can manage.
It is also worth noting that players can convert other Gemstones into Vajrada Amethyst Gemstones using one Gemstone of another kind (like Shivada Jade, Prithiva Topaz, etc) and 27 Dust of Azoth, which is only obtainable in the Shop through Stardust. While this is a good idea if a player needs one more Gemstone to ascend their character, it\’s best to avoid this if possible since the cost of resources really adds up. Players can plan out how they want to use their Resin to farm Vajrada Amethyst, and they will ascend their Electro characters in no time in Genshin Impact.
