If you're only after a few pinecones, however, there are a couple of ideal spots you should go too...


Version 4.4 with Xianyun and Nahida is here! You can unlock the Rainjade Oblation for rewards, but if you're still exploring the Hydro nation, our Fontaine guide can help with Fontaine's Reputation and the Fountain of Lucine, 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, and Dendroculus locations.


Best place to find Pinecones quickly in Genshin Impact

Pinecones are a common enough drop from trees in Mondstadt, but you might not have been picking them up on your travels. As you might only need a few to complete a quest, or trade during a Marvelous Merchandise event, there's two quick spots you should consider visiting.

Here are the best places to quickly find pinecones in Genshin Impact:

  • Cliff west of Midsummer Courtyard Domain
  • On cliffs around Favonius Cathedral in Mondstadt City

If you have the Midsummer Courtyard Domain unlocked, the best way to get pinecones quickly in Genshin Impact is to fast travel to it (east of Starfell Lake), and look for sparkles under the trees along the western cliff close by. You'll find seven or eight Pinecones around this area.

If you can't fast travel to the Midsummer Courtyard Domain, the next best way to get pinecones quickly is to search under the trees along the cliffs around the Favonius Cathedral, in the northwest of Mondstadt City. Follow the trees and you'll find six or seven quickly

Good luck collecting pinecones in Genshin Impact!
