During Genshin Impact’s “As the Khvarena’s Light Shows: Nirodha” world quest in the “Khvarena of Good and Evil” quest line, you’ll receive another world quest called “Pale Fire.” This quest will have you run around Genshin Impact’s newest region, Girdle of Sands, in search of Fravashi Trees, but you need six Udumbara Pistils to open a few of them. These can be tough to spot, so here’s where to find all six of them and how to get them.

For a closer look on where the Udumbara Pistils are located and how to retrieve them, check out the gallery below.
