Genshin Impact pinecones are a resource that you can find scattered around the map, and is necessary to complete one of the steps in the Marvelous Merchandise event, as well as for cooking certain recipes. Several of the pinecone locations have only one or two of them, but a handful of places offer up to six or seven. With that in mind, in our Pinecone Genshin Impact guide, we’ll show you the best places where to find them.
Where to Find Genshin Impact Pinecone?
To find pinecones in Genshin Impact, the absolute best place to look is the bridge northwest of Qingce Village. On the map below, that’s the lone spot way off in the top left. You can get a whole bunch of them just by crossing the bridge. We got six or seven of them there. Like, it’s honestly as if they grow on the very planks that you walk upon. That won’t be all you need for Marvelous Merchandise, so let’s go to the second-best location. That’d be the “horn” in the east. There are three pinecone locations there, and each has three or so. Check out the map below to see what I mean.
As you can see, we’ve also marked a whole bunch of other places where pinecones appear for you. However, the problem is that most of them have one pinecone in them. So, I’d advise you just go to the cape in the east and the Qignce Village bridge in the northwest. You’ll be just fine. Incidentally, you can use pinecones in Genshin Impact for more than just the Marvelous Merchandise event. For example, cooking. Specifically, they feature “prominently” in three recipes – Mondstadt Hash Brown, Puppy-Paw Hash Brown, and Sautéed Matsutake. You’ll need two pinecones for each dish.
And, well, that’s your lot, really. Now you know where to find pinecones in Genshin Impact. If you want help with something else, we’ve got a whole metric ton of other Genshin guides for you to peruse. Like, for example, Cloud Retainer – Custodian of Clouds Puzzle, Pyro Regisvine Location, and Lingju Pass Geo Pillars Puzzle.
