Maximize the power of Wuthering Waves’ Electro powerhouse, Calcharo, with everything you need to know about his Ascension and Forte materials! Calcharo is kicking up a storm in the Wuthering Waves community with his stoic demeanor and Sephiroth-esque character design. Ruthless, vengeful, and unforgiving, he's a force to be reckoned with.

Calcharo is a 5-star Electro Broadblade unit that excels at unleashing devastating combos by chaining Basic and Heavy Attacks during his empowered state, "Deathblade Gear," activated by his Ultimate. As you ascend Calcharo to level 90, you'll need specific Ascension materials at each 10-level interval.

Calcharo Ascension and Forte Farming Guide

From the above list, gathering Ascension and Forte materials for Calcharo may seem like a tall task. Fortunately, you'll need to go out of your way to find only two non-generic items for each upgrade.

Farming Iris

Calcharo's primary Ascension material you will be looking for is Iris. In the overworld, this material can only be found scattered across Whining Aix’s Mire, typically growing near bodies of water.

You can also purchase 15 Iris from the Shifang Pharmacy in Jinzhou Main City, though these won't be enough to Ascend your Calcharo to level 90.

Obtaining Thundering Tacet Core

The second important material for Calcharo's Ascension is the Thundering Tacet Core. Obtaining this requires a bit of legwork. You'll need to defeat the overworld boss Thundering Mephis who can be found in the bowels of Desorock Highland.

Farming Waveworm Residues (210/226/235/239)

To upgrade Calcharo's abilities, one of the main Forte materials you'll need to collect are various Waveworm Residues (210/226/235/239).

To acquire the required Waveworm Residue, you must complete Forgery Challenge: Eroded Ruins. This challenge will give you a bunch of different Waveworm Residues, including the ones you need to buff up your Calcharo. Alternatively, you can purchase these Waveworm Residues from the souvenir store.

Obtaining Monument Bell

The second unique Forte material you need is the Monument Bell. Once again, this material is stashed away in the icy palms of one single Bell-Borne Geochelone, an overworld boss residing in the Gorge of Spirits.

Farming Rings and Shell Credits

You must gather these generic materials for Calcharo's Ascension and upgrade his abilities.

Getting Rings (Crude/Basic/Improved/Tailored) by simply beating the right enemies. The Exile enemy group, which you can find littered around in the overworld, will drop all the Rings you need.

For Shell Credits, the best way to stash up on a ton is by playing through Simulation Field and completing your Weekly Challenges. After these, your Dailies, Missions, and Tacet Field/Boss Challenges can also bag you all the Shell Credits you need to max out Calcharo.
