How do I level up in Genshin Impact? Hoyoverse’s gacha game is fun and all, but leveling up can be a nuisance. Many features, such as the battle pass and co-op mode only unlock once you reach a certain Adventure Rank, along with new questlines and domains. You can easily run out of things to do when your Adventure Rank level is too low, so we’ve put together all the best strategies you need to increase your Adventure Rank quickly, and make leveling in Genshin Impact a breeze.
Naturally, the higher your Adventure Rank, the more Adventure EXP is required to level up in Genshin Impact. There are many different ways to increase your Adventure Rank quickly, but not all of them will give you a large boost. By using the leveling strategies below, you should be able to increase your Adventure Rank every one to three days, depending on your playtime and rank. We also recommend using the best characters in our Genshin Impact tier list to complete these tasks and level up in record time.
Genshin Impact leveling tips and tricks
Here are all the ways to level up your Adventure Rank quickly in Genshin Impact:
- Daily Commissions
- Adventurer’s Handbook
- Map exploration
Daily Commissions, otherwise known as dailies, are by far the best way to gather a lot of Adventure EXP without the need to invest a lot of time or energy. After speaking to Katheryne at the Adventurer’s Guild in Mondstadt, you receive an Adventurer’s Handbook. Press F1 to open it, and navigate to the second tab called ‘Commissions’ to see your tasks.
There are four Daily Commissions available to complete every day, and range from defeating a bunch of enemies to gathering some ingredients or doing some cooking. While the objective locations are scattered across the map, but you should be able to get to the right location quickly via the Teleport Waypoints.
These simple tasks are well worth your time, because each one of them rewards you with 200 Adventure EXP. If you complete all four of them, you will get an additional bonus of 500 Adventure EXP. It’s a great Adventure Rank boost in comparison to the minimal effort you have to make.
Once you’ve cleared your Daily Commissions logs, hunting bosses is your next best option to gain Adventure EXP and start leveling quickly. Go to the ‘Bosses’ tab in your Adventure Handbook and pick one that awards Adventure EXP. Defeating one of the two Ley Line Outcrop bosses in the Mondstadt area is a great choice, especially for new players. Not only are they low-level, defeating them may grant you 100 Adventure EXP. If you’re further in the game, try the elite bosses for 200 EXP instead, or the weekly bosses for 300 EXP.
The best part about hunting bosses is that you can do it repeatedly, as long as you have enough Original Resin to collect the rewards. The Ley Line Outcrop bosses only require 20 Original Resin, and they will spawn again nearby. If you spend your fully restored Original Resin on these bosses, you can possibly gain up to 600 Adventure EXP.
Completing Domains can get you a decent amount of Adventure Rank EXP. It depends on the individual Domain how much you will get exactly, so look up the bounties in your Adventurer’s Handbook before proceeding.
One-time Domains unlock at Adventure Level 12, and they’re a great way to get started. Their rewards range between 200 and 500 Adventure EXP. However, as the name says, you will get the reward only once. Repeatable Domain are the more lucrative way to farm EXP in the long run, as well as . The first one, Cecilia Garden, unlocks at level 16, and you can potentially get 100 Adventure EXP every time you complete it. Although this can take a lot more time than defeating a Ley Line Outcrop, Domains also give you plenty of other rewards, including Genshin Impact artifacts that can help you craft the best builds.
Unlike the options mentioned above, completing the Experience tasks in your Adventurer’s Handbook (the first tab) cannot be repeated. On the bright side, the Experience rewards are quite big and don’t require a lot of time investment.
Completing Experience tasks will reward you with 100 Adventure EXP each time, and first three alone will net you almost 2000 Adventure EXP. The tasks are very simple – in fact, it’s easy to complete them without even noticing. It’s also an easy method to acquire a large amount of primogems to pull the latest characters and weapons from Genshin Impact banners.
The tasks themselves are divided over different chapters, and you can only advance to the next chapter after all experience tasks are done. The number of tasks, and therefore the amount of EXP to be gained from each chapter, will increase as you advance.
Of course, you can always stick to the classic way of leveling up: completing quests and Genshin Impact events. This is without a doubt one of the more fun ways to increase your Adventure Rank, and typically nets you a few hundred Adventure EXP per quest.
However, most quests take far more time to complete than Daily Commissions or killing bosses. They are also non-repeatable, and you’ll likely run out of them if you don’t do anything else in the RPG game – hence this list. In return, you get far more interesting tasks and storylines than by doing Commissions. If you’re just trying to rush your way up the Adventure Ranks, you’re probably better off sticking to quests.
Another fun, but rather time-consuming way to level up, is by exploration. The open world of Genshin Impact is filled with Teleport Waypoints, Statues of the Seven, and Domains which you can discover in return for a small amount of Adventure EXP. If you enjoy wandering across Teyvat and don’t mind a bit more time investment, this is a great way to level up.
You can also search the world for Anemoculus or Geoculus orbs. Offering these to the Statues of the Seven will reward you with a lot of Adventure EXP, but again; it takes a lot of time and it can only be done once.
Now all there’s left to do is choose your preferred way of leveling up, and start the game. If you’re looking to increase your Genshin Impact reputation EXP, we recommend heading out in pursuit of Genshin Impact bounties. Last but not least, we highly recommend redeeming all the latest Genshin Impact codes, which can provide additional currency and materials to help you on your journey.
