Where to find Starsilver Ore in Genshin Impact

To find Starsilver, you have to look carefully. The gray/black colored ore is not always easy to spot in the snow-covered Dragonspine region.

  • Starglow Cavern is laden down with Starsilver. The many tunnels and paths that make up the cavern will yield plenty of this important resource.
  • The area around the lake to the east of the Entombed City Outskirts is also a great place to farm Starsilver. You can find large groups of 5-6 rocks, that will yield 1-2 Starsilver each.
  • To the southeast of Skyfrost Nail, a peninsula juts out into the sea. This will have 4-5 nodes on it, each one giving up to three Starsilver each.
  • The coastline all along the east of the Ancient Palace is also a great place to farm for Starsilver, as it will have 6-7 nodes.

On the map you can also see all currently available deposits:

What you need to know: You can only mine the individual Starsilver Ore deposits every 2 days. Typical ores respawn daily, starsilver takes twice as long.
