Some other things you should know

Always stop to collect any Amenoculus, Geoculus, or Electroculus you see floating nearby. These collectibles can be traded into the Statues of the Seven scattered around the world to upgrade them. Doing so gives you a bunch of rewards, including more stamina so you can climb higher or windglide for longer. These guides for Anemoculus … Read more

Learn how to evade and tap sprint instead of holding it

Genshin Impact doesn’t have a dodge or roll functionality, but if you time it well, you can use sprint to quickly evade through attacks. This is quite hard to learn, but it’s one of the most useful skills, especially in terms of fighting high-level bosses like Stormterror or Azhdaha in the Trounce Domain. Stamina is … Read more

Cooking isn’t just for fun

Though cooking might seem like a bit of a novelty, food is very powerful in Genshin Impact.

It’s easy to forget Sigils even exist. They’re a type of regional currency earned from chests or sometimes found while exploring and, if you’re like me, you probably are hoarding them for some inexplicable reason. Stop that. The sigil store (there’s one in Mondstadt and Liyue) offers a finite selection of ascension materials, mora, weapon … Read more

Use the map to mark everything

The world of Teyvat is full of secrets, but occasionally you’ll run into one that doesn’t have a clear solution.

Learn how to build characters and create a balanced party

This might sound obvious, but Genshin Impact’s combat centres heavily around elemental abilities, and how you combine them to create powerful reactions that can freeze, melt, or electrocute enemies.
