Genshin Impact is not a hard game - the only thing players need to beat its storyline is levels, some decent weapons and upgraded skills. Amongst the three, levels are probably the most important, as players can just crush the average enemies with higher stats. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase how to level up characters fast in Genshin Impact.

1. How to level up characters fast in Genshin Impact

There are several sources for character EXP in Genshin Impact, with the most obvious form being as a reward for killing enemies. This method, however, is VERY inefficient and would take a lot of time to yield any worthwhile EXP.

EXP books are the main method of gaining EXP in Genshin

What you need to do is to seek out the character EXP items that give high amounts of EXP in one shot: Wanderer's Advice (1,000 EXP), Adventurer's Experience (5,000 EXP), Hero's Wit (20,000 EXP). Below are the various ways to acquire these EXP materials:

Farm Blossoms Of Revelations

Blossoms Of Revelations are probably the easiest and most consistent way to acquire character EXP material.

To unlock the Blossom of Revelation, you have to be Adventure Rank 8. Once they have been unlocked, when looking at the map, you'll be able to locate these quite easily, as they are pretty colorful, and they are always there.

The enemies spawn by those blossoms are fairly easy, and players get a guaranteed drop when they are beaten. However, players need to spend original resin to receive the rewards. The character EXP materials you receive from completing an outcrop depend on your current World Level, which is based on AR.

Clear Event Shops

EXP books are commonly added as a reward in events. Players should complete all events if possible and purchase them from the event shop. Try to do that as soon as the events open, as they are usually time-limited.

Complete Quests

EXP books are also available as quest rewards. This can happen in all types of quests, such as Archon Quests, World Quests, Event Quests, and others. While some quests have requirements, most automatically unlock when you get more adventurer rank or talk to NPCs.

Get From Chests

Opening chests can also surprise you with a number of EXP Books. The higher the quality of the chest, the higher the rarity of the EXP books should be. Chests are scattered all over the world of Genshin Impact.

Bought From Shop

Players can buy EXP books from the shop using Masterless Starglitter. Afterward, they need to wait for shop reset to be able to buy them again. This happens once a month.

The Starglitter shop has all kinds of useful items.

However, as Masterless Starglitter is a special currency that is used to purchase rarer items, players might want to save them instead. The only way to acquire Masterless Starglitter is by pulling a  4/5 star weapon from a Wish or a character that they already own.

Get From Tubby In Serenitea Pot

Players can purchase EXP books from Tubby in their Serenitea shop. Instead of the usual monthly reset, Tubby's shop resets weekly.

2. Gain Adventure rank to unlocks character ascensions

What is Adventurer rank?

There are 2 types of levels in Genshin Impact: character level and adventure rank. While this article is about character level, players actually need high adventurer rank to unlock high character ascensions and levels. Until you reach Adventure Rank (AR) 15, your character’s cap will be level 20. As you climb the Adventure Rankings, the cap increases:

  • AR15: Ascension 1, level cap 40
  • AR25: Ascension 2, level cap 50
  • AR30: Ascension 3, level cap 60
  • AR35: Ascension 4, level cap 70
  • AR40: Ascension 5, level cap 80
  • AR45: Ascension 6, level cap 90

Therefore, if you haven't reached the necessary Adventurer level, just save your Hero's wit until later.

How to gain Adventure rank?

Almost all actions you do in Genshin reward Adventure Rank. Follow the Storyline is probably the fastest and most obvious way to gain Adventurer Rank in the early game. Afterward, you need to explore the map, complete quests, clear domains, and most importantly, do daily commissions.

If you keep doing daily, spend your resins, and explore everything you should be able to reach AR 45 within 2-3 weeks. This requires hyper-focusing on Genshin, which can be pretty tiring.

3. What are the benefits of Leveling Up characters?

Increase Character Stats

The higher level your characters become, the higher their stats will be. This allows characters to survive in higher leveled dungeons and overcome harder enemies.

Unlock powerful passive skills

You can further increase the level cap of your character by ascending them. However, to do this, your character must reach their current level cap first. Ascending will also increase your stats. Besides the various requirements, players also need the required materials and mora.
