The Boon of the Elder Tree gadget is a massive help for those who often farm wood for their Serenitea Pot. This item can instantly collect all available wood from trees in a certain range around the active character. This can be done by tapping the gadget button (Z for the PC platform by default). The downside is that it has quite a long cooldown of 15 seconds.

Players should note that the utility of the gadget is not limited to trees in just Sumeru. In fact, all the trees in Mondstadt, Liyue, and Inazuma can be taken care of by the gadget.

With this gadget, players don't have to set aside time to farm wood solely. They can take wood when exploring any area as long as trees are in close proximity to their character.

Wood in Genshin Impact is only used to create furniture in the Serenitea Pot. As of now, there is nothing else players can do with wood resources. However, collecting them while exploring is beneficial in the long run for when players finally stumble upon their favorite furniture in the game.


The Boon of the Elder Wood gadget is one of the most awaited gadgets that players have been keeping an eye on for a long time. With more and more furniture being added to the Serenitea Pot and no time to farm for wood, this item is a blessing. With the new gadget, Genshin Impact gamers can save lots of time by farming wood and exploring the area simultaneously.
