Genshin Impact sets the stage for Sumeru’s brightest dancer and 5-star Hydro sword user, Nilou.

Nilou took a supporting role in the region’s Archon Quest as the coordinator of the Sabzeruz Festival, an event that commemorates the birth of Lesser Lord Kusanali. The Zubayr Theater performer always takes time to thank her dance partners, the design staff, and the audience for their efforts.

If you want to win your battles with the power of dance, here are all the Nilou materials you’ll need for her ascension.
