Tighnari is a Dendro arc user who joined the game in version 3.0. He is the new main character of the banner and he is currently Dendro’s only five-star character. Collei is free, but you might also want to get Tighnari if you’re close to pity in the game, just to take advantage of Dendro Resonance. If you plan to upgrade Tighnari, these are the required materials.

Like Collei, the majority of Tighnari’s ascension materials are found in the new region, Sumeru. Nagadus Emerald is a stone that drops from the new normal boss, Jadeplume Terrorshroom. The creature is located in the northwest corner of Sumeru and can be easily found if you interact with the nearby Statue of Seven to reveal this section of the map. You can also convert other elemental stones to Nagadus Emerald using an alchemy station.
Nilotpala Lotus is a new plant originating from Sumeru. It is mainly found in and around the Lokapala Jungle in the northeast and in the nearby Avidya Forest. The lotus blooms only at night near the water however, keep this in mind when researching it. Here is a screenshot of the HoYovere interactive map showing where to look for the yellow plant.
These monster drops come from new enemies introduced in the 3.0 update. Each fungal enemy type in Sumeru will drop these items at different rarities based on their level. They can be found throughout the region, but you can use the Adventurer’s Handbook to find the exact locations of these enemies.
Majestic Hooked Beak
Majestic Hooked Beaks are boss drops from the new Jadeplume normal boss Terrorshroom. Close the boss to get both the Nagadus Beaks and Emeralds to save time. Collei also needs both of these to level up, so it’s worth grinding if you like both characters.

Tighnari’s talent books come from the Bell Tower of Ignorance realm, just like Collei’s. However, unlike Collei, Admonition Books can only be farmed on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays. The Bell Tower of Ignorance is located north of Sumeru City, next to Chatrakam Cave.
Meaning of the eons
Meaning of Aeons is an item that drops from the Raiden Shogun weekly boss found under the Narukami Shrine in Inazuma. The boss is only available to fight after completing Raiden Shogun’s second quest, Transient Dreams. Again, Collei also needs materials from this boss, so you’ll be farming for both by fighting her.
Crowns of Insight are usually only awarded at the end of main story missions like Perilous Trail or major limited-time events like the recent Summertime Odyssey. These items are so rare that players usually save them for their strongest main DPS characters, or the characters they like the most.
