One of the biggest things to do in gacha games is to collect and upgrade characters, and Genshin Impact is no exception. If players want to upgrade their characters, they need to collect the proper materials. The most essential materials to upgrade any Hydro characters are the crystals of the Varunada Lazurite family, which can be collected from a variety of sources.
The Varunada Lazurite comes in four different forms and rarities, the Varunada Lazurite Sliver (green), Varunada Lazurite Fragment (blue), Varunada Lazurite Chunk (purple), and Varunada Lazurite Gemstone (orange). The most common of these materials are the Silvers and Fragments, but Fragments are more in demand. Chunks and especially Gemstones are rarer, but players aren\’t going to need to worry about farming Gemstones unless they want to Ascend their Hydro character in Genshin Impact to level 90, which is a large investment of resources.
While it is possible to collect Varunada Lazurite Slivers and Fragments from chests, this is not guaranteed and is an inconsistent method of farming Varunada Lazurite in Genshin Impact. The quickest way to craft something from the Varunada Lazurite line is to use the lesser rarity materials to craft the greater rarity materials, but if players are completely out, they are going to need to spend Resin on Bosses if they want to Ascend their characters.
Bosses That Drop Varunada Lazurite In Genshin Impact
The best way for players to farm Varunada Lazurite is to collect rewards from various World Bosses and Weekly Bosses across Teyvat. World Bosses cost 40 Resin, and Weekly Bosses in Genshin Impact cost 30 Resin and can only have their rewards collected once a week, so players will be limited in how much they can farm unless they top up their Resin. However, since this is not the most efficient way to use Resin top-ups, like Fragile Resin and Primogems, players should be patient and farm the bosses whenever they have enough Resin.
There are three World Bosses that drop Varunada Lazurite in Genshin Impact. These are the Rhodeia of Loch (Liyue), Primo Geovishap (Liyue), and the Hydro Hypostasis (Inazuma). The Rhodeia of Loch and Hydro Hypostasis are guaranteed to drop some type of Varunada Lazurite, most likely Varunada Lazurite Fragments, but players could get lucky and receive a higher rarity drop as well. The Primo Geovishap in Genshin Impact, while it can drop Varunada Lazurite, can also drop other types of crystal materials, like Vajrada Amethyst, so Varunada Lazurite is not guaranteed to drop. For most efficient farming, players should focus on farming either the Hydro Hypostasis or Rhodeia of Loch to be guaranteed a drop of Varunada Lazurite every time.
There are also three Weekly Bosses that can drop Varunada Lazurite. These are Confront Stormterror (Stormterror – Mondstadt), Enter the Golden House (Childe – Liyue), and Beneath the Dragon-Queller (Azhdaha – Liyue). While these bosses are not guaranteed to drop Varunada Lazurite, the player will likely collect some passively while fighting these bosses in Genshin Impact for the week anyway. It is also worth noting the difficulty that these bosses are fought on influences what rarity of Varunada Lazurite that the player will receive, so the harder the difficulty, the higher chance for a higher rarity item.
Players can also transmute another type of crystal, like Vajrada Amethyst, into Varunada Lazurite, using one of the other crystals and Dust of Azoth, which can only be obtained through the Shop through Stardust. This is not recommended to use a lot since it can become cost-heavy in resources, but it is always an option, especially if the player only needs one more Varunada Lazurite Chunk or Gemstone. If players farm the World Bosses efficiently, they should have no trouble fully Ascending their Hydro characters in Genshin Impact.
