Moreover, you will need to grind for it to make any substantive quantity. To do that, you will need to kill Level 40+ Fungi enemies all over Sumeru. All of them have a chance to drop Luminescent Pollen as part of their loot tables. These enemies are scattered across Sumeru, including the Chasm and the new Great Red Sands region. There are 14 types of Fungi that can drop Luminescent Pollen, including:

  • Floating Anemo Fungus (Level 40+)

What is Luminescent Pollen used for in Genshin Impact

Talent Leveling

There are four characters that use Luminescent Pollen as part of the materials to level their talents:

  • Nahida (5-star Dendro)
  • Nilou (5-star Hydro)
  • Tighnari (5-star Dendro)
  • Traveler (Dendro version)

Character Ascension

Character ascensions are an important part of increasing their power level. Three characters in Genshin Impact will need lots of Luminescent Pollen to fully ascend:

  • Nahida (5-star Dendro)
  • Nilou (5-star Hydro)
  • Tighnari (5-star Dendro)

Weapon Ascension

It’s just as important to ascend your weapons to fully utilize their utility and damage potentials. There are five weapons that use Luminescent Pollen to ascend:

  • A Thousand Floating Dreams (5-star Catalyst)
  • Staff of the Scarlet Sands (5-star Polearm)
  • End of the Line (4-star Bow)
  • Fruit of Fulfillment (4-star Catalyst)
  • Wandering Star (4-star Catalyst)


There is a way to craft more Luminescent Pollen if you have some Fungal Spores left over. The recipe to craft it is pretty simple:

  • 3x Fungal Spores + 50 Mora = 1x Luminescent Pollen
