The Theater Mechanicus minigame, which is part of the Lantern Rite event, is now live on Genshin Impact and will run until the end of February. It is essentially a tower defense minigame where players need to defend their tower against a hoard of enemies. To participate in the event, you need to use the Xiao Lantern, which can be crafted in the event as well. One of the ingredients for crafting Xiao Lantern is Plaustrite Shard that players might struggle to find. Here is a guide that will help you find all the possible locations for Plaustrite Shard in Genshin Impact.
All Locations For Plaustrite Shard in Genshin Impact
The first location is just near the southwest of Mt. Aaozang. You will encounter the Geovishap Hatchling and a number of Crystal nodes. Both defeating the Hatchling and destroying the nodes will yield Plaustrite shards.

Another location for Plaustrite shards is on Mt. Tianheng. There are plenty of ores, and you can harvest an abundance of Plaustrite shards in this area. Apart from the aforementioned locations, you can also defeat a Geovishap, Geovishap Hatchling, or Stonehide Lawachurl to get your hands on Plaustrite shards. However, these creatures don’t always yield Plaustrite shards, and it is RNG based. Geovishap Hatchling can be found in Tianquai Valley but they can only be encountered on rare occasions, so you need to search for them a bit. These Hatchlings also drop Fragile Bone, which is used for ascending characters.
The other materials required for crafting Xiao Lanterns are Lantern Fibers and Wick Materials. Lantern Fibers are pretty easy to acquire as they can be harvested from the plethora of plants that can be found throughout Tevyat. Wick materials on the other hand can be harvested by defeating Fatui elites or enemies similar to hilichurls. These might sound tedious at first but is pretty easily doable.
