Genshin Impact - Starconch Cover

Throughout your journey in Teyvat, you will need to collect materials from the open world to upgrade your characters or weapons. In this guide, we will show you all Starconch locations for Genshin Impact.

What is Starconch in Genshin Impact?

Starconch is one of the Local Specialties found in the region of Liyue. However, Starconch is not used for cooking or creating Furniture for your Serenitea Pot. If you’re looking for Starconch, chances are you need it to ascend a character.

As of Version 2.7 of Genshin Impact, there are two characters who need Starconch to ascend: Tartaglia (Childe) and Yelan.

Official Game Description

How to get Starconch

Starconch in Genshin Impact is obtainable in two ways. First, you can buy Starconch from Liyue NPC Bolai if you don’t want to farm for this material. However, you can only buy up to 5 Starconch from Bolai and wait after 3 days for the item to refresh in his shop.

Second, you can farm for Starconch. It is scattered all along the shores of Yaoguang Shoal and Guyun Stone Forest. If you have Qiqi or Yanfei on your team, you can use them to mark Liyue specialties on your mini-map.

If you cannot wait for Bolai to restock his supply of Starconch or if you want to save Mora, you can farm this material in Liyue. As mentioned earlier, there are a lot of Starconch which can be farmed along the shores of Yaoguang Shoal.

Yaoguang Shoal

It is recommended for Travelers to use the Teleport Waypoint northwest of Yaoguang Shoal. If you teleport here, you can easily follow a route to collect the Starconch in this area. On the other hand, you can also teleport from somewhere in Dragonspine if you want to end up somewhere in Liyue.

Based on the image below, go left from Dragonspine until you’re at Yaoguang Shoal.

Then, you can continue and pick up Starconch as you make your way across Yaoguang Shoal. Once you collect all of the materials in that area, follow the shoreline south of Yaoguang Shoal for some more of this item. To get to this area, you can also use the Teleport Waypoint in Guili Plains.

Guyun Stone Forest

You can also find Starconch in Guyun Stone Forest. However, be careful as there are many enemies wandering in this part of Liyue.

And there you have it, all Starconch locations in Genshin Impact. But keep in mind that like other materials, this one resets after 2-3 actual days.

So if you are unable to find any more Starconch, you can either join another Traveler’s world or wait for them to respawn in your world.

The images above were made with the use of the official Teyvat Interactive Map from HoYolab. Travelers can easily find the location of different materials in Genshin Impact with the use of this tool.
