The days of fruitlessly searching for that final Geoculus or Anemoculus are over! Resonance stones are here, and treasure hunting has never been easier. This guide will make it easier still.

Resonance stones are finally in Genshin Impact - and what a breath of fresh air they are. Tracking down those last remaining Oculi (in Liyue especially) was a nightmare, but with these new consumables, you have your very own oculi homing device.

Here’s how to get a hold of these ever so handy items.

Reach Reputation Level 2

Before anything else, you’ll need to hit Rep. Level 2 in Mondstadt for the Anemoculus Resonance Stone and the same in Liyue for the Geoculus Resonance Stone.

There are a few ways to go about that, but we won’t go into detail here. If you want more ideas on how to go about upping your Reputation Level, check these guides out:

With that all done, you’ll need to claim your rightful reward from Hertha (Mondstadt) or Ms Yu to receive the Crafting Blueprint. However, much like recipes, you need to actually learn the Blueprint before you can craft Resonance Stones. Head to the Precious Items tab in your Inventory to find and learn it.

Head to a Crafting Table

With the Blueprint(s) memorised, you should over to a crafting table where you should now have the option to make the Resonance Stones - assuming you have the materials. You’ll need:

Geoculus Resonance Stone

  • Cor Lapis x5
  • Glaze Lily x5
  • Crystal Chunk x1

Anemoculus Resonance Stone

  • Dandelion Seed x5
  • Cecilia x5
  • Crystal Chunk x1

Remember that Resonance stones are one use only, so you may want to make a few!

Equip the Resonance Stone to your Gadget Slot

Resonance Stones are part of a new item type in Genshin Impact called “Gadgets”. To use one you’ll need to equip it from the new Gadget tab in your Inventory, then hit the appropriate hotkey in-game!

Check your Map, then get exploring!
Having used a Resonance Stone, check your map to find the rough area you should be searching. It’ll be fairly obvious, as you can see in the image below.

Head on over to the highlighted area, and get hunting for that Oculus!
