Though charm potions are always in high demand, making them is much harder than one might think. If you want to make one, prepare for a long journey through the Alchemic Map.
Where is the Charm Effect in Potion Craft
The charm effect is located in the far north-west portion of the Alchemy Map. You can get there however you’d like, but with the amount of death zones along the way, it’s best to know a recipe that’ll get you there safely.
The most straightforward one needs five Windblooms, four Firebells, and one Waterbloom. To get the best result, use them in this order:
- Grind the Windbloom completely and add it to the cauldron, than do the same with one Firebell
- Grind the second Firebell to about 75% and throw it into the mix.
- Grind each of the following ingredients fully and add them in this order: Windbloom, Firebell, Windblom
- Throw another Firebell without grinding it
- Add a fully grinded Windbloom
- Add a Windbloom Grinded to about 75%
- Add a fully grinded Waterbloom and use the ladle to get the best possible potion
Using a Whirlpool
If you want to make the best use of your ingredients, you can also try to use the Whirlpool that happens to be in the way. The whirlpools rotate as you heat up your cauldron, moving the potion icon with them if it happens to be in the same spot.
Although it won’t change much, you can save one firebell that way. And If you’ll decide to save this recipe, that means one less firebell is used every time customers will ask for this specific potion. So, it might be worth it in the long run.

Genshin Impact: Sandglass Dendroculus Puzzle Guide
Get rewarded for clearing this new exploration-based mechanic.
Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.
In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.
The Sandglass Location
To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.
Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.
From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.
The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge
Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.
First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.
From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.
When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.
From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.
At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.
After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.
Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
