In Genshin Impact, elemental flowers may annoy you if you attempt to harvest them barehanded with any character! Indeed, these plants react to elemental powers and can hurt you if they aren't properly understood. Dandelions are unique in that they won't inflict any damage on you, but they're still quite tricky to pick.
You will find plenty of dandelions at city of Mondstadt, just before the gates.
You will notice that dandelions aren't picked like other plants. No interaction button is displayed near the rods. To be able to harvest them, you will have to use an Anemo ability against them! Any character in this element will do, but without it, the dandelions will refuse to open up to you!
These flowers are fairly easy to spot because they emit a strong bluish light. Your "initial" character being of "Anemo" attribute, it will be perfect to keep under your elbow to farm dandelions from the start of your adventure on Teyvat.
Like many utility resources in Genshin Impact, elemental flowers are always good to pick up when you pass them. If you go through the adventure without taking the time to collect certain plants from the start, you may regret it later, when you really need it. Indeed, having to venture again into regions already visited just to pick something, it's both redundant and above all sub-optimal for your progress.
Genshin Impact is a new title that brings together console RPG gameplay and mobile gatcha mechanics. While you can spend to improve your experience, here are some promo codes you can use to give you a little headstart.
