Zhongli is a 5-star Geo character in Genshin Impact. He was released on Genshin Impact 1.1. Zhongli was first introduced in the Archon Quest "Farewell Archaic Lord" as the consultant for the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. The Geo Archon is now getting a banner rerun in Genshin Impact 1.5.

He is one of the best support in Genshin Impact (if not the best). His shield is unbreakable, and his burst deals a lot of damage. If players are preparing for such powerhouse support, it's wise to farm materials early.

The following are the materials players will need to grow their Zhongli.

To raise their Rex Lapis, players will need these Zhongli's ascension materials and Zhongli's talent materials.
