Genshin Impact Nahida farming guide

All hail onion (or radish?) Archon.

Nahida, also known as Lesser Lord Kusanali, is Genshin Impact's Dendro Archon. While she has little control over the Akademiya-ruled Sumeru, she has displayed the unique ability to possess people and peer into their souls. Nahida is an easy-to-use Dendro catalyst user who you can slot into a plethora of team comps.
