Genshin Impact Dandelion seeds are one of Mondstadt specialties, and have multiple uses – outside of the Dawn Winery’s popular dandelion wine (you’ve just got to try it, I hear). You need them to complete certain quests, commissions, and requests, and they’re both ascension and crafting materials for specific items and characters. So, pretty handy. But how do you farm them? Well, grab an anemo pal, and let’s go for a spin!

If you’re looking for more assistance during your exploration of Teyvat, check out our Genshin Impact map, Genshin Impact Shrine of Depths, and Genshin Impact Inazuma guides. We’ve also got a super handy Genshin Impact tier list so you’ll know who to take with you when out in the wild, and a Genshin Impact codes guide to line your pockets with those ever-desirable primos.

How do I get dandelion seeds in Genshin Impact?

Described as ‘a tiny seed that rides on the wind. Even without its feathered wings, it still holds the hope from afar within’, you can find dandelion seeds dotted around Mondstadt, with quite a few clustered together just outside the city gates. In order to harvest dandelion seeds, you need to use an anemo attack, then grab them as they’re floating in the air.

If you’re still having trouble locating them and you have Genshin Impact’s Klee, adding her to your party is a great idea. Klee has the ability to locate Mondstadt specialties, which are marked by a small hand icon on your map if they’re nearby. Check out our Genshin Impact icons guide to find out more about this nifty feature, and which other characters have it.

What are Genshin Impact dandelion seeds used for?

A few Mondstadt quests, commissions, and requests require a certain amount of dandelion seeds. For example, during the Whisper in the Wind commission, you need to give Glory dandelion seeds, then scatter them from the top of the Anemo Archon statue.

Dandelion seeds are also used in these crafting recipes.

  • Gushing Essential Oil – a consumable item that increases all party members’ Anemo damage by 25% for 300 seconds
  • Windbarrier Potion – a consumable item that boosts your party members’ anemo resistance, enabling them to withstand strong winds
  • Oculus Resonance Stone – a gadget that helps you locate uncollected Anemoculi

On top of this, dandelion seeds are required to ascend the following characters.

And that’s it for our Genshin Impact dandelion seeds guide. If you need a break from all that farming, check out our list of the best games like Genshin Impact to see if you can find something new to play today.
