Pinecones are found all over the northern half of the Genshin Impact map.
A common item, for sure, yet one that is not used for much in the game besides the Marvelous Merchandise Event and a couple of recipes.
Thankfully this means they are easy to harvest in bulk so players always have some in their inventory when use for them arises.
Pinecone Locations in Genshin Impact
Take a look at the map below to find all the pinecone locations in Genshin Impact.
While they are plentiful, there are specific areas where they seem to be more plentiful.
The Stormbearer Mountains are home to numerous fir trees just west of the Anemo Hypostasis, allowing players to harvest a lot of pinecones in a single area.
The next area to check is Wolvendom, north of Dawn Winery.
Pinecones are a bit more scattered in this area, but still plentiful.
Lastly, players should check for pinecones in Qingoe Village.
This area is not on the map above, as the village in near Liyue.
By teleporting to the waypoint just above the "Q" in the village's name to find a bridge that will lead to around nine pinecones.
