Diona’s Ascension And Talent Ingredients List

Diona is a very interesting character in Genshin impact. Not only does he have Cryo Vision and features a cat, but he also works as a bartender despite being a kid. To make things even weirder, he turns out to be a famous bartender too.

Those who wish to travel with Diona and maximize her combat potential will need to gather some materials and a little Mora. Here’s a full breakdown of everything Diona needs to step up and improve her talent.

Gemstones – Where to Find Shivada Jade

All Cryo characters, including Diona, use the Shivada Jade as part of their ascension.

Like other gemstones, Shivada Jade can be purchased from the Mondstadt and Liyue gift shop or obtained by completing daily commissions.

However, one of the most efficient ways to obtain gemstones is by beat the boss. Shivada Jade, in particular, can be obtained by defeating one of the following bosses:

  • Azdaha
  • La Signora
  • Andrius
  • Childe/Tartaglia
  • Cryo Hypostatic
  • Cryo Regisvine
  • Maguu Kenki
  • Immortal Mechanical Array
  • Coral Defender
  • Primo Geovishap

Enemy Drop – Where to Find Hilichurl Arrowheads

Arrows dropped by Hilichurl Shooters come in three varieties, each dropped by a higher level monster:

  • Hilichurl Shooter of any level: Firm Arrow
  • Hilichurl shooter level 40 or higher: Sharp Arrowheads
  • Hilichurl shooter level 60 or higher: Weathered Arrowheads

Note that only Hilichurl Shooter can drop these Arrowheads. Standard Hillhurls won’t drop it.

Boss Drop – How to Get the Frost Core

Frost core, which is used to level up many Cryo characters, is obtained by defeating Cryo Regisvine. This huge whopperflower is found in Mondstadt, specifically on the Falcon Coast, just south of the Temple of the Thousand Winds.

Local Specialty – Where to Find Calla Lilies

The regional specialties that Diona uses to ascend are Calla Lily. These flowers are found throughout Mondstadt, in particular near a body of water. That big pool near Springvale is a great source of Calla Lilies.

There are two additional methods of finding Calla Lilies besides collecting them from the wild. First, they can grow in Serenitea Pots. Second, they can be bought from Flora, a young girl who runs a flower shop in the City of Mondstadt. He brought five of them at once, replenishing every three days. The price is 1000 Mora each.

Talent Book – Freedom

Diona uses the Freedom series talent book when enhancing her talent. This can be obtained in a number of ways, but the most reliable and efficient is to clear the Forsaken Rift domain on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays.

Against Materials and the Crown of Insight

The Insight Crown is used to maximize each character’s talent, meaning each character will need three to maximize their talent to the fullest. Unfortunately, they are extremely rare, only coming from events or by making offerings to the sacred tree of Teyvat — the Frostbearing Tree and the Sacred Sakura.

The Trouce domain material that Diona used for her talent was the Shard of a Foul Legacy. This item can be obtained by defeating Childe/Tartaglia in his weekly Trouce battle.

Genshin Impact available on PC, PS4, PS5, and mobile devices, with a Nintendo Switch version in development.
