Raiden Shogun is set for a rerun in the second half of Genshin Impact's 4.3 update. Considering she is one of the strongest characters in the game's meta, it will not be surprising if a lot of players pull for her.

However, being a character from Inazuma, all her ascension materials can only be found in that region. Moreover, some of her materials can be quite annoying to obtain and many can only be found once players unlock the Serai Island.

Thus, this article will guide players regarding all the materials they will require for Raiden Shogun so that they can start pre-farming for her. Raiden Shogun’s banner is still some time away, thus players have enough time to prepare everything before her arrival.

While Amakumo Fruit can be found in abundance on Serai Island, as shown on the interactive map below, Storm Beads and Old Handguards will require quite a lot of farming.


Raiden Shogun Ascension materials & Talent books

It is well known that merely ascending a character is not enough as most of the damage is locked behind talents. Therefore, collecting the talent books and necessary materials is also very important.
