Do you play with the idea of your adventure in Genshin Impact to start – but are you still unsure because the online role-playing game overwhelms you a little at first glance? That’s not bad. After all, Genshin Impact now offers a large game world with numerous activities and characters, where you can actually quickly lose track of things. To make it a little easier for you to get started, we have put together a few tips in our beginner’s guide that will help you find your way around the world of Teyvat in no time.
Increases the adventure level for new content
At the beginning of your journey you should focus on the adventure level. The higher the rank, the more options you have in Genshin Impact. The most important thing here is level 12, which gives you access to the daily challenges. With this you can pick up a decent amount of experience points for further leveling up every day as well as veteran rock, which is required for unlocking new characters.
However, there are many other activities that you can obtain through the adventure level in Genshin Impact. For example, at level 26 you can expect more quests whose story revolves around a character. Again, the choice of stories increases as the rank increases. If you want to play with friends, you must first reach level 16 for the co-op mode. Another highlight is the Twisting Abyss, which can be entered from level 20. You will then have unlocked the most important content by adventure level 28 at the latest.
This is how you get the important experience points
There are several ways to get experience points quickly in Genshin Impact. At the beginning, concentrate on the main quests in particular, which not only give you access to other parts of the game world, but also provide you with many experience points for advancing the adventure level. Also, while exploring Teyvat, keep an eye out for the teleporters. With it you can travel from A to B in a flash and get even more XP on top of that.
In addition, the already mentioned daily challenges are a sure source of experience points. You have to solve a total of four different tasks here. Every day the location and type of mission are determined randomly. Once you have completed the tasks, you should report to the adventure guild to receive further rewards (including XP). Almost all activities in Genshin Impact give you experience points – however, main quests and daily challenges provide the most worthwhile yield.
Assemble a balanced team
Genshin Impact’s combat system is primarily based on the intelligent use of the various elements. You should combine your characters’ abilities in such a way that the elemental reactions do as much damage as possible. For example, a mix of Kryo and Hydro freezes an opponent. Attacking a wet enemy with Electric Attacks will electrocute them. The Cryo and Pyro combo triggers a meld. There are numerous elemental reactions that you can use to your advantage in combat.
The breakdown of your team of four should revolve around which character can do the most damage. This is the so-called Main DPS. Choose two other characters whose elements match your main character in a way that allows them to reach their full potential. The team is rounded off by a support that heals other characters or provides them with a shield. Various lists can be found on the Internet as to which characters are best suited for which position.
Don’t try to level all characters at the same time
If you have thrown a troop together, you should now take care of the level up of these characters. Really only focus on the characters you currently need and save important resources. Above all, this means the character who is responsible for the main damage in the team. Materials for leveling up the weapon, the talents or the equipped artefacts are best invested here. However, make sure that team members can reasonably keep up with the opponents of the current world tier.
Characters and items require different materials, which you can obtain, for example, in spheres or in duels against element hypostases or the flux fire and flux ice tree. When you complete your objective at these locations, you can collect rewards in exchange for Primal Resin. Besides the daily tasks, you should also spend the resin on the activities every day. A maximum of 160 pieces are available here. If you spend some of it, the inventory is refilled by one “Primal Resin” every eight minutes. If you don’t have time, you can also convert it into “Enriched Resin” for additional use later.
Do not use your veteran without thinking
During your time in Genshin Impact, your veteran account will continue to fill up. Don’t spend this precious currency needlessly in prayers, though. Instead, wait for a character you’re dying to have for your squad. A prayer will take a total of 160 Primal Rocks in one of the banners – unless you have a few copies of Interwoven Fate or Predestined Fate left. Real money can also be used to purchase Creation Crystals for in-game prayers.
You need a bit of luck if you want to get one of the characters you want without using a lot of resources. At the latest, the so-called Pity system will help you in the end. If you veterans have invested in 89 prayers – without getting one of the valuable and strong 5-star characters – the 90th prayer is guaranteed to give you a 5-star character. If it’s an event banner, there’s a 50/50 chance that you’ll actually unlock the event character as well. In the worst case, you have to start 180 prayers to really get the event character for your team. You can find more tips on how to get to veterans quickly in our blog post.
Don’t miss any special promotions in the game
Periodically, the development team also hosts special promotions in Genshin Impact, which are a variety of activities. This sometimes includes special game modes that differ from the main game. But the events have one thing in common – there are always many rewards for you. Characters are even given away every now and then. So it’s worth keeping an eye on the promotions.
Increases the level of the Statues of the Seven
In the course of your adventure, while exploring the game world, you will also encounter one or the other statue of the seven, which is mainly responsible for the amount of stamina your characters have. With each level increase, you get additional stamina, which you can use to sprint longer and, above all, to climb walls. To level up you have to discover the Anemoculus distributed everywhere and bring them to the statue. Here, too, there is some help on the Internet that shows you the exact positions on the map. In the other areas Geoculus and Elektroculus are added.
In general, you should pick up all the objects that get in your way in the game. This includes various ingredients for food, treasure chests or ores – including iron, crystal chunks, electrocrystals and much more. By the way, it makes sense to always have a character with a greatsword with you, because you can mine the ores on the walls much faster with them. Usually only a single hit is needed here. Multiple attacks are required with the other weapons.
We hope that you will quickly find your way around the world of Teyvat with our beginner’s guide. Genshin Impact is free to download from PlayStation Store for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
