miHoYo’s Genshin Impact is now out for the PlayStation 4, Android, and iOS devices. It may seem like an easy action RPG at a glance, but the game does have a difficulty curve that players will need to know before they jump in.
Genshin Impact throws in a lot of gameplay mechanics right in front of the player. Those who are new to the game will find it easy at first, but upon progressing, they’ll find the difficulty spike, which could prevent them from enjoying the game further. Here are a few tips to help players in this free-to-play title.
Fully utilize Amber
At the start of the game, players will be given Amber as a free character. What’s great about her is that despite being an early character, she’s very useful. While not having impressive stats, she’s one of the first bow and arrow characters that players can get. She’ll be useful when it comes to solving puzzles.
Moreover, one of her passives allows her to deal with major damage via headshots. This means she’s capable of holding her ground against many bosses. Players should try and keep her early on.
Take advantage of elements
The elements can provide players with a huge advantage over enemies. For instance, enemies affected by the wet status will be frozen when they are attacked by a character of the water element. This allows Genshin Impact players to stand their ground against higher-leveled enemies too.
Touch every waypoint
The teleport waypoints are one of the critical structures in the game. Players should interact with them the moment they see it. Since the world in the game is large, it’s important to have some means of making it back to other areas easily.
Pick up what you can
There’s no limit to what players can carry in the game. As such, it’s best to pick up any ingredient or material that players come across to on the map. These items are eventually going to be useful later on. For cooking, the ingredients are vital to make food that gives more buffs to the players.
Like Breath of the Wild – the game it is inspired by, Genshin Impact has a ton of mechanics that the game doesn’t let out easily. These tips above will help players enjoy the world better. There’s a lot to uncover in the world, so players should take these tips to mind.
