Genshin Impact Noctilucous Jade locations and where to find Noctilucous Jade explained

This is easier done than said.

The Noctilucous Jade is a precious mineral in Genshin Impact which you will inevitably need to level up some characters.

After all, making your characters stronger and leveling as many different ones as you can becomes a necessity for every player that would like to enjoy some of the game’s content. By doing so, you can take advantage of multiple combinations of elements in your party to maximize damage.

So, this guide covers how you can use Noctilucous Jade in Genshin Impact and where you find Noctilucous Jade nodes.

What is Noctilucous Jade used for in Genshin Impact?

Noctilucous Jade is a type of ore that you can find in some regions in Genshin Impact. Although different types of ores can be used to craft items, the Noctilucous Jade is a material used strictly for ascension.

To harvest them you must break the nodes from which you can get the Noctilucous Jades. Breaking them is easier if hitting with blunt attacks which means using characters that attack with claymores.

These are the characters that need Noctiluscous Jade to ascend:

  • Yanfei
  • Beidou

Since both characters’ ascension requires these ores up until the last level and it takes two days for them to respawn, you may want to farm them consistently to be prepared.

Version 4.3 with Navia is coming soon! For now, in version 4.2, Ayato and Cyno are reruning, and you need Scarabs to Ascend Cyno. Our Fontaine guide can also help with Fontaine's Reputation and the Fountain of Lucine amongst other details, and you can also redeem new codes for Primogems, and check out our regularly updated tier list. You need luck from the Pity and 50/50 systems to Wish with Fate for characters on Banners, and you always need the right Adventure Rank for events. Elsewhere, we have tips and tricks for beginners, Dendroculus locations, fishing locations, and TCG card locations.

Where to find Noctilucous Jade in Genshin Impact

In case you find yourself with mora to spend, Noctilucous Jade can be bought from Shitou in Liyue Harbor. Each will cost 1000 mora and his stock will refresh every three days.

But if you need a bigger quantity or don’t want to spend money, you can harvest them in some locations.

Mingyun Village is a place where you can find a considerable amount of them without having to walk too far from one node to another, making it a quick route to farm Noctilucous Jade.

The map is marking where in the region you can find the nodes. Some are inside caves that are easily spotted once on the ground level.
