Crimson Agate is a crystal-type Adventure Item in Genshin Impact that can be found from exploring the Dragonspine area. Almost all of Crimson Agate locations are quite difficult to reach because of the Sheer Cold status effect that you will get from exploring Dragonspine.
Just like the Geo and Anemoculus, you will be offering this item on the Frostbearing Tree to obtain weapon diagrams, gadgets, glider wings, and some free wishes. To help you out, we made a detailed guide on where to get all the Crimson Agate and the fastest route that you should take.
Crimson Agate Locations
There are 80 Crimson Agate scattered in the Dragonspine area and can be easily spotted in your mini-map when you get close to it. However, not all Crimson Agate will appear in your mini-map and will require you to complete puzzles or task. Some are just hidden inside a chest but don’t worry we got you covered with this guide!

Hidden Crimson Agate Location
In order to get the 80th Crimson Agate, you need to complete the world quest called “Lost in the Snow” first. It is a part of the world quest in Genshin Impact and needed to be completed in order to get all 80th Crimson Agate and unlock a hidden achievement “Untellable Tale”.
This mission is a really easy one and you don’t need to do puzzles or fight enemies. You just need to run around the region and find all 3 campsites with a note.
Activating The Quest
Teleport to the Windwall Highland waypoint and talk to Joel the kid NPC in Adventurer Camp to help him find his father and start the world quest.
After activating the quest, you need to find 3 notes hidden throughout the Dragonspine region.
Search For Joel’s Father
- Teleport to Statue of the Seven in Dragonspine and glide down towards southeast to read the first Neatly-Written Note on the ground.
Again, use the teleporter in Entombed City – Outskirts southeast waypoint and head northwest and use a Pyro attack to melt the snow covering the second Neatly-Written on the ground to read it.
Teleport to Statue of the Seven in Dragonspine and head southwest. Break the rock wall to clear the path and read the Scribbled Note on the campsite.
Now, you can interact with the bowl near it and place 2 berries to feed the foxes in this area. Repeat this for 2-5 days in real life days until the 3 foxes appear with a chest that contains a Crimson Agate.
Be sure to go back and talk to Joel once you have completed the quest for a sweet 40 Primogems and 2x Hero’s Wit reward.
What Is Crimson Wish
Crimson Wish is a new feature added to the 1.2 updates regarding the Dragonspine region which if you wake up the tree near the Statue of the Seven in Dragonspine then go to rewards where you can see that offering of level 8 unlocks Crimson Wish. It is essentially a challenge that you can get twice a week and it refreshes every Monday and Friday.
For every crimson wish that you completed, you will receive 1 crimson agate. Most of the challenges are similar to daily commissions which involve killing mobs. This is the only way to get more Crimson Agates if you already found all 80 pieces. Once you reach the max level of Frostbearing Tree, challenges will also stop appearing.
