In genshin impact, I have Aether, Kaeya, Sucrose, Noelle, Lisa and Amber. How can I build a good team with them? I don’t even know how artifacts work- someone please lemme know and maybe explain as well that would mean alot ^^
Ah you just started the game! Just as a bonus, you will also get a free Xiangling for beating Spiral Abyss Floor 3. But don’t worry about that, you won’t be getting her for some time.
As a new player, your first order of business isgathering resources. Do not worry about artifacts. Just put whatever random stuff you find onto whatever characters you end up liking. You won’t be farming artifacts until Adventure Rank 45, which if you are free to play will take you about 2–3 months to achieve.
So what should you be gathering?
PRIORITY 1: CHESTS!
Oh yeah, look at that chest! So big, so perky, so…. ahem.
Chests are fun, and should be your only concern. Walk off the beaten path. If you see a glowing circle, go to it. If you see something big and tall, climb it. If you see a big bad enemy… don’t kill it yet, unless you’re a L33T H4X0R “I play Dark Souls for fun” hardcore achiever.
PRIORITY 2: PUZZLES!
Honestly, puzzles should be the main draw of the early game. If puzzles aren’t your thing… I think perhaps you looked for the wrong genre? Now you could spoil things for yourself by going onto Gamefaqs, or you can do it the old fashioned way like how we did it in the 90s.
Yes, I know. It’s hard. But trust me. Asking your older brother for help isn’t that scary. XD
PRIORITY 3: PRIMOGEMS!
Yes! Look at that loot! Look at that booty! I mean… ahem.
Primogems actually come rather frequently. So long as you play the game. Please remember that this game is a marathon, not a sprint. I finish everything in about 30 minutes, but I play every day. I’ve acquired tens of thousands of primogems during the 8 months and counting I have been playing.
The principle means you will acquire primogems is actually by doing events. Unfortunately, you probably aren’t going to be able to do events unless you beef up your account. But that’s ok!
Remember those chests from earlier? The uncommon ones give you 2 primogems, rare ones give you 5 primogems, and the exquisite ones give you a whopping TEN (10)! primogems! You also get 60 primogems from doing your daily missions (there are only 4 per day).
It doesn’t sound like a lot, but trust me, it adds up. Very fast. Don’t forget to also pick up free primogem codes Mihoyo flushes out about once every two weeks.
PRIORITY 4: BENNETT
I wouldn’t worry about in game resources too much as of yet. Things like gold, talent books, upgrade materials, etc. will eventually become the bottleneck. But that day isn’t today. Your first goal is to get some good characters to accelerate your pace, and hopefully make the game more fun.
And to do that, you want to group. But without a powerful character, how can you group you ask? Well never fear! Bennett is here!
This guy. Get him. Don’t bother with those shiny 5-star ads.
Bennet is the answer to all your worries. Need to group? Pick Bennet. Need dps? Pick Bennett. Need a healer? Pick Bennett. No idea who to pick? Pick Bennett.
You literally can’t go wrong with this guy. You can also drag a tiny little level 50 Bennett into a group filled with level 90 “das uber Genshin en qualitat” characters and your teammates will sing praises for you. Hell your Bennett could even have zero artifacts on him and they’ll still be happy (just don’t die, it looks bad when you die on Bennett).
Try to hit adventure rank 35 first. Artifacts and your team doesn’t matter before then. You can just put random artifacts on your Traveler and power through everything like it’s an overleveled Blastoise in Pokemon. Just focus on the 4 priorities above.
You questions aren’t really a concern until after that point.
