Genshin Impact: Shivada Jade Sliver locations and farming
If a cryo character is on your radar in Genshin Impact, then you’ll want to make sure you’ve got a few Shivada Jade Slivers on hand. These little pieces of character ascension materials are the very first versions of cryo items you’ll get.
Keeping a Shivada Jade Sliver or two on hand isn’t a tall order. As the most basic forms of Shivada Jade pieces, you’ll find some sources fairly generous. You’ll also notice they’re handy for crafting and turning into other pieces, but we’ll cover all that here, too. Below, check out ways to craft with, buy, or farm for Shivada Jade Slivers.
As a character ascension material, you’ll want to scoop up Shivada Jade Slivers wherever possible. Check out a couple of these easy sources first before moving on to keep up with farming.
These shops only reset for you to exchange Mora, but new players can exchange local Sigils at shops in Liyue and Mondstadt. Slivers of all elements are available for ten Sigils each in limited supplies. In Mondstadt, speak to Marjorie to exchange your Anemo Sigils. In Liyue, speak to Xingxi to exchange Geo Sigils. These never restock, so Sigils are best spent on Mora after, but it’s a handy feature for new players.
Alchemy and Crafting
If you’re hard up for Shivada Jade Slivers (or other elements), you can do a little juggling. Find a crafting bench in any city to begin the process, just be careful about how you spend your materials. Cryo is a pretty sought-after character element, so it’s probably safe to assume some other materials are worth sacrificing for these ascensions. However, it’s often easy to farm low-level pieces like slivers, so you may want to go hit up generous enemy rewards instead.
Alchemy makes it possible to convert one sliver of any element into a Shivada Jade Sliver using Dust of Azoth. Every month, you can obtain 1,000 stacks of ten of these items from the Stardust Exchange shop for five Masterless Stardust.
Crafting aids with turning Shivada Jade Slivers into Shivada Jade Fragments. You can turn three slivers into one fragment.
If you’re farming slivers for cryo characters like Ganyu, Congyun, Ayaka, Shenhe, and others - there are a few sources to pick them up from bosses. Thankfully, you can get Shivada Jade Slivers early on from these enemies as they’re a low-level item. Here’s the location and timers of each, just keep in mind you’ll need Resin to farm all of these.
Normal Boss Farming
The closest teleport for the Cryo Regisvine is Temple of the Wolf. After making it to the domain, you’ll head south and drop into a deep canyon to fight the icy plant. This boss only rewards you with Shivada Jade, so it's a great source of the material.
This boss is waiting for players that have made it to Dragonspine. Take the waypoint at Daleth's Retreat, you'll find the big elemental boss waiting for your party in the arena surrounded by mountains. Like Reisvine, the Cryo boss here only drops Shivada Jade.
This boss changes elements, so take a look at what colors its rocky armored body is to see what it's going to drop. You can find the creature in Liyue, easily reached from the Natianmen Highland teleport by gliding down to the ruins to the southwest.
You'll find Maguu Kenki on Inazuma's Yashiori Island. There's a teleport on a cliffside just to the southeast, take it and glide down to face the boss. Maguu Kenki also may drop Anemo rewards, so don't get your hopes up on bigger stashes of Shivada Jade.
Perpetual Mechanical Array
This one is another Inazuma boss, located at Jinren Island and only accessible through a wormhole at first. Completing Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual for the Memento Lens will also unlock a waypoint nearby. This mechanical monster also drops other elemental pieces.
Bathysmal Vishap Herd
This duo of bosses launched with Genshin Impact's 2.4 update, making them a challenge in Enkanomiya. Take the teleport at Dainichi Mikoshi and you're almost there. You get cryo and electro rewards for defeating the pair.
Weekly Boss Farming
Some of these bosses are easily accessible through the Trounce Domain menu under your Domains tab from the book menu, but below you'll also find where they are just in case you're on the search.
Wolf of the North, Andrius
One of your earliest challenges in Genshin Impact rewards Shivada Jade Sliver - it's also not available through your Trounce Domain menu. Take the nearby Wolvendom teleport and run west to southwest, you'll find the boss in the arena. The big pup drops Shivada Jade and other elements.
Golden House, Childe
Your encounter with Childe can yield Shivada Jade and other elements. It's available for a direct teleport using the Trounce menu, located just south of Liyue Harbor.
This one is another Liyue boss, unlocked after wrapping up Zhongli's story. Azdaha drops all elements, so it's not the best source, but you may get some Shivada Jade Slivers here. This beast has another direct teleport through Trounce options, Beneath the Dragon-Queller.
