Genshin Impact: Ganyu is coming next week - you should definitely farm that first

 On January 12th the current banner on Albedo in Genshin Impact ends . Shortly thereafter, the 5-star character Ganyu will be released. We reveal what you should farm in advance in order to prepare yourself perfectly for Ganyu.

Who is Ganyu? The new character in Genshin Impact is the secretary of Qixing and is over 3,000 years old. She is an avid person and her biggest hobby is her work. It has the following properties:

  • Element: Cryo
  • Weapon: bow
  • Constellation: Sinae Unicornis

You can find exact details about the character and the skills in our overview of Ganyu.

What should you farm now? Every new character wants to be provided with weapons, artifacts and materials for advancement. We'll tell you what you need for Ganyu and how you get the materials and equipment.

This is how you get Ganyu

To unlock the character, you have to buy the new Ganyu banner. That costs you either real money or veteran. There are various farm methods to get hold of primary rock:

  • Useful are the daily missions, general quests and uncovering teleport points.
  • The “Missing Treasures” event is particularly lucrative at the moment, with which you can farm more than 300 primary rocks . That runs until January 18th.
  • Another method is to redeem the latest promo codes . You can currently earn 110 veterans through this.

Finally, you need a little luck. Unlocking new 5-star characters can take quite a few tries. Even with characters with a guarantee, in the worst case, 28,800 veterans. 

The best weapons for Ganyu

Ganyu uses the bow as a weapon. The best bows at the moment are Amos' Bow and Skywing . But even here you need luck in drawing from prayers.

If you want to be on the safe side, you can use Prototype Crescent or Favonius Warbow. These are two sheets that you can get without using real money . The warbow is even available as a reward for completing the story.

These artifacts are worthwhile for Ganyu

If you want to get the most out of Ganyu, check out the Blizzard Strayer set, which is perfect for Cryo characters:

  • 2 bonus: Increases cryo damage by 15%
  • 4 bonus: Increases the crit chance for enemies that are affected by Cryo by 20% and for enemies that are frozen by another 20%

The artifacts were released along with the new Dragon Ridge area in Patch 1.2 . You can catch her at the top of the mountain in the Peak of Vindagnyr domain. You unlock these by playing the story.

This is the new character Ganyu in action.

Materials for the climb

In order to level up Ganyu later, you will need different materials:

  • Qingxin flowers can be found in high places and on mountains. It's best to use the interactive map to find them. You just have to deactivate all markers and select the third plant.
  • Shivada jade is best farmed at the cryo bosses Fluxeisbaum on the east coast near Mondstadt.
  • You can also get fluxe ice cores from the fluxe ice trees.
  • You get the Vaniloqua Nectar and the Luminous Nectar from the Vaniloquen.

In addition to these items, you should also reserve “A Hero's Wisdom” for experience points and Mora. Then you are perfectly prepared for the arrival of Ganyu.
