Noctilucous Jade Locations: Where You Can Farm This Ascension Material

Learn more about where to find it, which characters can use it, how long it takes to respawn, and how to get Noctilucous Jade in this quick guide.

So, you need to farm some Noctilucous Jade, but you’re having trouble finding it. Don’t worry, you aren’t the only one. This ascension material is one of the more difficult ones to find since it spawns in all of the nooks and crannies you never go to. It also doesn’t make things any easier that only two characters need it so you most likely don’t have a neat stockpile in your inventory waiting to be used.

This quick guide will help you learn where to find Noctilucous Jade, which characters need it, and how long it takes to respawn.

Characters That Need Noctilucous Jade

Noctilucous Jade is currently needed by only two characters, Beidou and Yanfei. Both of which hail from Liyue, which should come as no surprise since these ore nodes can only be found in Liyue.

Both Yanfei and Beidou will need a good amount of Noctilucous Jade at each level benchmark to ascend to the next tier. You’ll need to collect a total of 168 pieces (3 / 10 / 20 / 30 / 45 / 60) to max each character out. Even if you don’t have Beidou or Yanfei yet, I highly recommend that you farm this ore now so you aren’t respawn locked.

Take it from someone that got both characters last week. It sucks having to wait.

Noctilucous Jade Respawn Rates

Like all gathering and ascension materials, you can’t farm them every single day. Once you’ve collected them, the nodes go on a cooldown and you’ll have to wait for it to finish before they can respawn. Noctilucous Jade is one of the rarer ascension materials so it has one of the longer respawn rates.

Once you collect the ore, it takes roughly 48-72 hours for the Noctilucous Jade to respawn. You’ll want to stay on top of this cooldown because of how much you’re going to need. Both Beidou and Yanfei are very solid characters and you’ll want to get them leveled up ASAP.

Noctilucous Jade Locations

These ore nodes can primarily be found in caves throughout Liyue. But which caves? Below is an overview of all the Noctilucous Jade locations across Liyue.

There are 15 nodes in total with the lion’s share of them centered around Mingyun village. If you’re pressed on time, focus your farming around there to get the biggest bang for your buck.
