Archons in Genshin Impact have always been some of the strongest characters, and that holds true for the imposing and autocratic Raiden Shogun. If you don’t have her yet and are looking to pre-farm for her next re-run, here are all the ascension and talent level-up materials for Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact. 

We’ve had five playable Archons in Genshin Impact so far — Venti, Zhongli, Raiden Shogun, Nahida, and Furina. All of them have different playstyles and are some of the strongest, if not the strongest, for their respective roles. 

Raiden Shogun was first released on Genshin Impact version 2.1 and has had multiple re-runs so far. If you have missed her, she’ll be the limited banner rate-up in the upcoming Genshin Impact version 4.3

So, here are all the materials Raiden Shogun uses for her ascension and talent level-up in Genshin Impact, so you can pre-farm.
