Tides are an important currency in Wuthering Waves that help you unlock a variety of Resonators, weapons, and more. So, here are all the types of Tides and the best ways to get them.


Wuthering Waves has a vast amount of materials and currencies that you can use to get new Resonators, weapons, and skills. There are different ways to get each, and every type has a different use. 

So, here are all the Tides in Wuthering Waves, where you can find them, and what you can use them for. 

Tides types & uses in Wuthering Waves

There are three types of Tides in Wuthering Waves; Lustrous, Radiant, and Forging, and each of them has a different use. 

  • Lustrous Tides: Used for basic rolls from the Convene menu.
  • Radiant Tides: Used to roll for specific Resonators in Character Event Convenes.
  • Forging Tides: Used to roll for 5-Star weapons in a Weapon Event Convene.

Radiant and Forging Tides are the rarest types in the game, mostly because they’re necessary to pull on limited-time character and weapon Banners that rotate every three weeks.

You can use Astrite, Aftershock Coral, and Oscillated Coral in the Exchange tab of the shop to get all of the types of Tides, but it’s not the only way. 

Since Forging and Radiant Tides are the rarest in Wuthering Waves, it’s best to save your Astrite for these types instead of Lustrous Tides. 

The exchange rate is one Tide for 160 Astrite, and Astrite can be obtained through redeeming codes, completing events, quests, opening chests, and a bunch of other activities in the game.
