What are Genshin Impact udumbara pistils?
Within the Girdle of the Sands area of Sumeru’s desert, there are six udumbara pistils – items at the centre of giant purple flowers – that you must collect as part of a quest. The items are for the quest and nothing else.
As you continue the quests in this new area, you start the Pale Fire world quest after speaking to an NPC named Zurvan, at the Vourukasha Oasis. He sets you out to find the Fravashi Tree, where two Residual Pari (like Sorush) exist and asks you for three udumbara pistils each.
Genshin Impact udumbara pistil locations
All six of the udumbara flowers can be found in one location, so no need to go searching the desert for days on end. To collect these pesky pistils, head to the Asipattravana Swamp. While you’re here, don’t forget to grab the Mourning flowers if you’re preparing for Genshin Impact’s Kaveh!
Here’s a handy map showing all six locations:
The flowers are found on the walls and you need to get Sorush out to help gather them. There’s a heart-shaped symbol on the wall to signify where an udumbara is. Swap to Sorush, fly up to the symbol, then hold her power to get the flower to bloom and stay bloomed, while you climb (or fly, if you have Genshin Impact’s Wanderer) to the flower and gather the pistil.
And there you have it – a pocket full of pistils. Need more Genshin help? Check out our Genshin Impact tier list, or some build guides for Genshin Impact’s Ayato, Genshin Impact’s Zhongli, and the pint-size powerhouse Genshin Impact’s Nahida.
