Genshin Impact Robust Fungal Nucleus

Of the three different Fungal Nucleus materials available in Genshin Impact, Robust Fungal Nuclei are by far the hardest to get. Not only must you meet specific prerequisites to farm them, but you also need dozens of them to max out your weapons. If you’re interested in learning more, continue reading to discover where to get Robust Fungal Nucleus in Genshin Impact.

Where to Get Robust Fungal Nucleus in Genshin Impact

There are three main ways to get Robust Fungal Nucleus in Genshin Impact:

  1. Defeating Level 60+ Fungi enemies
  2. Purchasing from Paimon’s Bargains for two Masterless Starglitter
  3. Crafted using three Dormant Fungal Nucleus

Paimon’s Bargains

In Paimon’s Bargains, you’ll find Robust Fungal Nucleus available for two Masterless Starglitter. Despite it being fairly expensive for one, this option is helpful if you have extra Starglitter and don’t mind spending some to reach your last weapon ascension.

Crafting Using Dormant Fungal Nucleus

If you’re not looking to buy Robust Fungal Nucleus using Starglitter, you can also craft some! However, you need three Dormant nuclei for each Robust one you create. If you have some Dormant Fungal Nucleus to spare, though, this is a viable option to get some upgrades.

Defeating Level 60 Fungi

The main way to get Robust Fungal Nucleus in Genshin Impact is to defeat Level 60 Fungi. They only spawn in Sumeru, so you’ll need to make your way there to find any. To access Sumeru, finish the main story questline up to at least Chapter II: Act IV and reach Adventure Rank 35.

While you’ll notice Fungi in numerous locations around Sumeru, there are a few decent spawn spots to consider:

  • The northern region of Mawtimiya Forest
  • In Chinvat Ravine, west of Gandharva Ville
  • Surrounding Pardis Dhyai
  • East of the Ruins of Dahri, in the southern part of the Ashavan Realm
  • West of Vanarana

There are also several different Fungi you may find throughout these regions. Below are some you may encounter:

  • Floating Dendro Fungus
  • Floating Hydro Fungus
  • Grounded Hydroshroom
  • Stretchy Anemo Fungus
  • Stretchy Geo Fungus
  • Stretchy Pyro Fungus
  • Whirling Cryo Fungus
  • Whirling Electro Fungus
  • Winged Cryshroom
  • Winged Dendroshroom

Make sure that the Fungi you encounter are at least Level 60! Any Fungi below this will only drop Inactivated and Dormant Fungal Nuclei. With this in mind, you’ll want to be between Adventure Rank 45-55 to increase your chances of finding high-level Fungi significantly.

Genshin Impact is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Android, and iOS devices through the official website. If you’re interested in obtaining other 3.0 Update materials, check out Where to Get Faded Red SatinTrimmed Red Silk, and Rich Red Brocade.
