For crafting a Xiao Lantern in Genshin Impact players need the aforementioned items and 50 Mora. We recommend players to grind and keep a good number of Xiao Lanterns in stock as it is also required in Theater Mechanicus challenges. Moreover, if players fail a Theater Mechanicus challenge the Xiao lantern is wasted. So keep that in mind and keep a decent stock of Xiao lanterns.
