Genshin Impact is a widely popular role-playing game that offers a wide variety of different gameplay mechanics. It is a big game with many things to do and to explore. Genshin Impact may look like a normal RPG at first glance, though, there are some things in the game that players should know in order to have a smooth progression or gameplay experience.
10 Genshin Impact tips for new and old players
Here is a list of ten Genshin Impact tips for all kinds of players. Also, check out our previous guide, 5 Basic & Advanced Tips & Tricks That You Should Know.
1.) Do not Level up all characters or weapons
Genshin Impact offers a plethora of playable characters and weapons, though you shouldn’t use your precious experience scrolls or enhancement ores on all characters. At later stages, you will start running out of materials to level up your character or weapons. So, it’s wise to plan accordingly and then level up.
The materials like Traveler’s, Adventurer’s, and Hero’s Experience or character/weapon ascension materials are easy to get if you are ready to invest real money.
2.) Exploration is Rewarding
Genshin Impact is a game that comes with many similarities to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. And, just like Zelda, Genshin Impact offers treasures, dungeons, domains, world bosses, puzzles, and much more that is found in the open world of Teyvat.
Finding chests, solving puzzles, completing domains or doing any such activities rewards players with Adventure’s XP, Primogems, Artifacts and much more.
3.) Archon, Story and Side Quests are first priority
While exploring the open world in Genshin Impact is rewarding, players should first focus on the different quests offered by the game. Why? Because it is the faster way to level up adventure rank, unlock free characters, four-star weapons, and more.
Explore the open world of Teyvat once you have reached a adventure rank requirement wall.
4.) Two characters of the same element type, in a party, gives Elemental Resonance buffs
All the seven different elements in Genshin Impact come with different attributes, uses, and functionalities. While mixing elements result in a different elemental reaction, players should try to use two characters of the same element as they provide additional buffs via elemental resonance.
5.) Spamming Dash is more efficient
Players can move faster and farther by spamming the dash key, rather than holding it. A more advanced movement trick is there that involved jumping as well as a trick that lets you climb mountains with zero stamina. Though, that is a topic for some other time.
6.) Out of Resources? Try Co-op
Resources like plants and minerals refresh after a particular time. If you have exhausted all the resources from your game world try visiting other players worldwide via co-op to farm more of the same resources.
7.) Artifacts are the meta
Genshin Impact may differentiate characters on RPG related jargons like Support or DPS. But, there is no such thing in Genshin Impact as the artifacts define the class of a character. Even healers like Barbara and Qiqi can easily do high DPS if equipped with proper artifacts and weapons.
8.) Mora doesn’t matter Primogems do
While mora is an essential currency in Genshin Impact, it can be acquired very easily by simply doing quests, events, domains, or other activities. But, Primogems on the other hand are hard to come by, and they are often used to perform wishes. Players use Primogems in Paimon’s Bargain shop too, though, don’t get tempted.
9.) Food Recipes are more important than treasures
Consuming food in Genshin Impact is a good way to temporarily buff your characters. The best part is that, if used correctly it can almost make you invincible, in few hits you can kill any enemy. Here is a list of some of the most important food recipes to acquire in Genshin Impact.
- Barbatos Ratatouille
- Calla Lily Seafood Soup
- Sauteed Matsutake
- Flaming Red Bolognese
- Mondstadt Hash Brown
- Cold Noodles With Mountain Delicacies
- Jade Parcels
- Sweet Madame
- Teyvat Fried Egg
- Crab, Ham & Veggie Bake
10.) Ever tried talking to the blacksmith? You should
New players often ignore the blacksmith in Genshin Impact. Why would we need a blacksmith when we can just perform wishes for weapons?. It is a very wrong thinking as players can craft some of the best weapons and items in the game using the blacksmith.
