Hu Tao Talent Materials in Genshin Impact

Teachings of Diligence

Teachings of Diligence

Can be used as a material to increase the level of legend talent. You can go to Taishan Mansion in your Alliance Domain to challenge for more.

If a person is always ambitious, his diligence will be consistent. If a person has a firm belief, his diligence will never fade. 

Diligence is a vital quality for the development of man's character, but must be tempered with flexibility. 

At times, it requires one to stop and rest when faced with seemingly insurmountable difficulties; at other times, one's will should be as solid as steel to overcome these difficulties. 

One must learn to distinguish between mutability and immutability in order to follow the right path in life.

Guide to Diligence

Guide to Diligence

These are characters based on a story written by Wu Cheng'en. The story tells the excitement of a monkey that is born in heaven on a magic stone and its journey through various hardships to escort the monk Xuanzang to India to retrieve the true sutra.

The wild mountains north of Yindu are inhabited by Chaos beasts and demons that can't be exterminated. They fear only the powerful demon hunters.

Philosophies of Diligence

Philosophies of Diligence

It takes diligence to be able to master all talents. Talent points and mastery points can be obtained from this book by leveling up the suitable talents continuously.

Diligence means to remember one's responsibilities, and to be motivated by concern for others. Diligence requires constant effort, often without the promise of a reward.

This material is necessary for skills cultivation of some of the maids, and provides a large amount of EXP when used.

Whopperflower Nectar

Whopperflower Nectar

Each Whopperflower Nectar contains a concentrated blend of nutrients, a perfect fertilizer for monarchs. This precious nectar is manufactured exclusively in the glimmering habitats of the Whopperflowers, and is surprisingly sweet enough to be enjoyed by humans as well.

It's said that the gods visit an island of Whopperflowers in midwinter, and fill bottles with their sight-sensing nectar so they can see humanity more clearly.

Shimmering Nectar

Shimmering Nectar

A gossamer quill, suspended in midair. As with all such enchantments, the true purpose and history of this one are long forgotten. Used in the Ascension process to add abilities to Weapons, Armor and Accessories.

A bottle of Shimmering Nectar. Not all Whopperflowers are equipped to produce nectar, and those that do require a lot of work to extract.

More than one potion has been brewed with Shimmering Nectar as its main ingredient. A rarer derivative is bottle-aged into Shimmering Wine, which comes standard with a shimmering aftertaste.

Energy Nectar

Energy Nectar

The Nectar has a sweet scent that calms the mind and heart. Drinking it will improve your mental fortitude and spirit, allowing you to exceed your own limits.

Nectar-rich sap pours from the opened hive, providing a large amount of energy to whoever consumes it.

A jar of nectar gleaming with energy. This material is used for synthesizing accessories. Can be obtained through synthesis, or by defeating enemies.

Shard of a Foul Legacy

Shard of a Foul Legacy

It can be used to upgrade Jade Lion’s dauntless and mighty Heart of Berserker to Lv. 2, unlocking the Berserker's Blessing passive skill.

This shard contains the essence of many a wandering minion's master. It may be used to level up talents.

A mysterious fragment left by the first emperor of Tianshu. It is said that only a chosen few can wield the power to its fullest. This fragment emits a faintly discernible aura.

Not to be confused with a Legendary Shard, this shard is not of a legendary design but merely elitely designed. It can be used for upgrading Talents and for purchasing Talents once at Lv. 70+.

Crown of Insight

Crown of Insight

The advanced crown allows one to gain insight into how to expand their combat prowess so as to more effectively enter the fray.

With enough Talent Level-Up Material, a Character can learn higher-level combat Techniques, making them more adept at battle. 

Crown of Insight is an item used to upgrade a Combat Talent from base Level 9 to 10. It will be consumed together with the other necessary items.

Talent-leveling materials are required to level your character's combat talents.

They can be purchased from merchant NPCs, starting vendors, and various lootboxes. When leveling from base level 9 to 10, a Crown of Insight is required in addition to the previous tier's talent-leveling materials.
