Talent Level-Up Materials are materials that are used along with Common Ascension Materials to level up a Character's talents. Higher rarity materials can also be crafted with Alchemy by combining lower rarity materials of the same type. e.g.

  • ×3 Teachings of Freedom can be combined to create ×1 Guide to Freedom
  • ×3 Guide to Freedom can be combined to create ×1 Philosophies of Freedom

Check each character's page to see which materials are required for their talents or check each materials page to see which characters use that material for leveling talents.

If a player has Xingqiu, they can use him when crafting higher level talent level-up materials for a 25% chance to not consume a portion of the talent materials used.
