Expeditions are a very important feature in Genshin Impact. They allow players to easily gain Mora and other resources while gaining points for the battle pass at the same time. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase everything you need to know about Genshin Impact Expeditions, including rewards, the best area to explore, and the best characters to use.

1. What are Genshin Impact expedition?

Expeditions are unlocked upon reaching AR 14. They can only be set and completed through Katheryne. To send characters on expeditions, just talk to any Katheryne from any region to gain access to the Expeditions menu.

There is a Katheryne in all of Teyvat's nations.

To increase the number of expeditions that can be done simultaneously, you need to increase your Adventure Rank. Players can do 2/3/4/5 expeditions at the same time after reaching AR 14/26/31/36 respectively.

The rewards you can gain from expeditions are based on the selected location and duration. The available durations for the expedition are 4h, 8h, 12h, and 20h. The longer the expedition, the higher the reward.

Players can dispatch up to five characters on expeditions. Any character besides the Traveler can be dispatched.

If you bring a character back before the Expedition is completed, not only will the character come back with zero rewards, but the timer will also reset. In case you want to switch Expedition characters, you should call them back as soon as possible.

Characters that are K.O'd cannot be sent on expeditions until they are revived.

2. Best Genshin Impact expedition buffs

While all characters can be sent on expeditions, some are better than others. Currently, there are 2 types of expedition buffs in Genshin Impact: reduce expedition time and increase earned resources.

Only 6 characters have these kinds of bonuses. Furthermore, they are also region specific - players should definitely make use of them whenever they want to send out expeditions.

4. Tips and tricks for expeditions

There are actually no real "best" Expeditions to farm, as it actually depends on your need. If you don't know what you need, the safest bet is to go for Mora or Crystal Chunk expeditions, as these are the materials that you would always need for weapon and character upgrades.

The chunks that you receive from expeditions also count as mining, whiich can fulfill battle pass missions.

The other options for food and materials are not really worth it. Only pick them if you are in dire need of ingredients to cook but don't have time to gather them manually.

Expeditions allow you to save a lot of time gathering ingredients.

When sending characters for expeditions, it is best to pick the maximum length of time - 20 hours. It is the most efficient option for gathering resources, and character buffs are also more effective. With all 5 bonus characters, players can complete one wave of long expedition with only 15 hours instead of the usual 20. This results in a huge amount of resources over time.
