Fragile Bone Shard is an important resource in Genshin Impact that is used to Ascend characters and weapons. It is only dropped by Geovishap Hatchlings, a difficult to kill enemy that is also hard to find.
These small, lizard-like creatures are tough to beat, but there are a few tricks you can use to get the better of them. Just before they perform their roll attack, they will drop two Geo shield pickups on the ground. If you grab them and then allow the Hatchling to hit you, it will become stunned for a second, giving you an easy opening to attack it. You can also use Wind attacks to flip them over and attack their unprotected stomachs.
The good news is that once you get the Adventurer’s Handbook for Liyue, they become much easier to find. They are one of the trackable boss fights in the area, so if you open the handbook from the main menu, then go to the Boss tab and scroll down, you will be able to mark the location of one of them on the map.
After that, head to the location, kill them, and you should get lucky with a drop for Fragile Bone Shard. You can then continue to use the Adventurer’s Handbook to find new spawns for the boss, but it will level up each time, so you cannot just endlessly farm it. You will also need to make sure you have Original Resin to claim your boss rewards.
If you don’t have the Liyue Adventurer’s Handbook yet, you can potentially find the Geovishap Hatchling at the below locations:
- The beach to the southwest of Qingce Village
- Near the teleport point in Vale Tiangiu
