While exploring Sumeru you may have noticed some big green padded-shaped mushrooms these are Bouncy mushrooms, players can use these to jump higher.

If there’s anything that’s most dangerous while exploring Sumeru then it’s without a doubt the withering zones. These are dangerous areas that cover certain spots in the lands of Sumeru in these areas trees and plants will wilt and the characters in your party will start accumulating Decay, the more decay a player has accumulated the more debuffs their party members will get on their max HP, ATK, DEF, and RES, if the decay accumulation bar gets full then all the party members will fall.

16. Candles and Flames of Life

17. Withering Branches and Tumors in Genshin Impact

These are the cause of withering happening in the first place, to clear a withering zone player first need to clear the three withering branches using dendrogranum to spawn dendrograna and then hit the branches with charged or aimed shots. After taking care of the branches head for the Tumor (boss) and destroy it to clear the withering zone. Clearing withering zones rewards players with at least an exquisite chest.

18. Fungal spores and Inactivated Fungal Nucleus

Trying to build your Dendro character but struggling to get the right drops? Here’s why: When farming the floating fungi keep in mind that using Pyro and Electro elements to defeat these creatures will only result in you getting inactivated fungal nucleus rather than fungal spores. To get fungal spores to drop use hydro, anemo, and cryo characters.
