Should I restart Genshin Impact? I’m currently on AR31 and I mistakenly joined the Asia server instead of the one I’m closest to, and the ping is always very high.

You definitely could, though it of course depends on your attachments
to the Asia server. In the long run it will probably save you some frustration in terms of lag/ping and being unable to play with people from the same timezone (which can be important when it comes to events).

Luckily switching to one of the other regions is made quite easy in Genshin Impact, it doesn’t require you to download another client, you simply select a different server region on your log in screen. Nor will your progress on the Asia server be lost, would you ever want to revisit it.

AR31 doesn’t take that long to reach, so you should be good on that part too. Of course you will need to repeat the things you’ve done so far. And if the gods of RNG (random) bless you, you may end up with better characters and drops!

At the same time it might take you longer to regain some characters you’ve obtained, but seeing Genshin Impact tends to re-run featured characters, I’m sure you’ll be able to pick up a copy in the future.

Starting over also means you won’t be able to obtain the special items (although not many; Festering Desire & Windblume Ode) like the weapons that were released during previous version events.

I hope this helps make up your mind!
