The new update for Genshin Impact is bringing long-awaited characters with it. The first limited character Banner will be up on September 1 and feature the Electro Archon Raiden Shogun, along with Kujou Sara. Additionally, PlayStation owners will be able to get Aloy with this update. After Raiden Shogun, Kokomi will be getting her own Banner, too. With all these new characters, there are a lot of materials players will need to collect to level them up.
Grinding for some materials in Genshin Impact early on hasn\’t worked, since all of the materials needed to upgrade them weren\’t in the game before the new update. The boss materials for these characters are on the two new islands being added in the update, Watatsumi Island and Seirai Island.
Additionally, the weekly boss items for them will be dropped by La Signora, who will also be added to this Genshin Impact update. Because many of these materials weren\’t previously available, many players will be dashing to get their Ascension and Talent Level-Up materials for the new characters as quickly as possible.

Raiden Shogun or Baal is an Electro character in Genshin Impact, so for her Ascension, she will need 1 Vajrada Amethyst Sliver, 9 Vajrada Amethyst Fragments, 9 Vajrada Amethyst Chunks, and 6 Vajrada Amethyst Gemstones.
