Resources, materials, and bosses have their own specific respawn timers in Genshin Impact. Knowing when everything respawns will help you plan your farming routes. If you’re trying to ascend your characters to the max, you need all the resources you can get your hands on. There are many resources in the game, and finding out when everything is ready to pick or mine again can be a daunting task. For that reason, we put together a list of timers for minerals, plants, bosses, and other resources.
These are all the known respawn timers for minerals like Crystal Chunks, Cor Lapis, and Iron, along with plants like Philanemo Mushrooms, Violetgrass, and more. Most information is from in-game testing, along with this post for reference.
