What are Yoimiya's upgrade items in Genshin Impact?
According to the beta test server, upgrading Yoimiya’s talents requires "Floating World" talent scrolls, Scroll-themed items, three Crowns of Insight, and Dragon Lord's Crown. Meanwhile, to ascend Yoimiya and unlock her level caps, you'll need a mix of Agnidus Agate, Smoldering Pearl, Narumi, and again Scroll-themed items.
It’s likely that you only recognize 2-3 of the mentioned items with the rest being alien to your ears. Unfortunately, almost all of the materials needed for Yoimiya can only be farmed in the upcoming Inazuma region.
From her list, you can currently only farm Crowns of Insight, Dragon Lord's Crown, Agnidus Agate, and Scroll-themed items.
Here’s how you can get the job done.
Where can you farm the Crown of Insight in Genshin Impact?
A Crown of Insight is required to max out every single late-level talent in Genshin Impact. Of course, that includes Yoimiya. Alas, you cannot farm the Crown of Insight at a controlled pace. It's primarily acquired through events at a rate of around one Crown per event.
If you can’t wait for another event, you can also nab a Crown of Insight by upgrading the Frostbearing Tree in Dragonspine to level 11.
Where can you farm Dragon Lord’s Crown in Genshin Impact?
You can farm this by defeating Azhdaha, a new weekly boss that joined Genshin Impact in version 1.5.
This quest only becomes available after completing Act 2 of Zhongli’s story quest. After that, you’ll be to find the Azhdaha by the Dragon-Queller tree in his very own trounce domain.
Where can you farm Scrolls in Genshin Impact?
Yoimiya requires Divining Scrolls, Sealed Scrolls, and Forbidden Curse Scrolls for both increasing talent level and ascending her level cap.
All three items are found by killing Samachurls, the stout wizardly variants of Hilichurls that can deal elemental damage. Divining Scrolls are dropped by any slain Samachurl; Sealed Scrolls are dropped by Samachurls at level 40 or higher; Forbidden Curse Scrolls are dropped by Samachurls that are level 60 and higher.
There's no singular location in Teyvat that you can attend for all your Samachurl murdering needs. However, you can pinpoint a nearby Samachurl using your Adventure's Handbook, by selecting the creature as a tracking target. This provides an easy in-game farming route.
They can come in every elemental variant and all of them will drop the same scrolls, so make sure to defeat them when you can.
Where can you farm Agnidus Agate in Genshin Impact?
Yoimiya is a Pyro character, therefore she needs numerous Agnidus Agate for Ascensions. You can farm these items by defeating the Pyro Regisvine or Primo Geovishap in Liyue. With Inazuma’s release, you’ll also be able to farm the item by defeating the new boss, Pyro Hypostasis. Agnidus Agate can be purchased in small sums from souvenir shops in Liyue and Mondstadt. You can also gain it as a drop from the weekly Wolf of the North boss fight.
