Hello everyone! I have recently started playing genshin impact (since the middle of july) and am already ar 43. Since I do know some people really want to know how to get ar exp really quickly, I’m here to explain.
(this is my first ever time posting here so please forgive me if I make some sort of mistake.)
So, here are my tips (:
(Just saying, I am mostly f2p and have only brought blessing of the welkin moon ONCE. I have no 5 star characters and 2 5 star weapons.)
DO YOU DAILY COMMISSIONS!!!!!
I cannot stress how important this is, in fact it affects all my other tips, not to mention you get 60 primogems and weapon/character level up materials! In fact, I feel like it is literally the ONLY way to constantly get primogems. I know you all are really excited about version 2.1, and so am I, so make sure to do your commissions to get extra primogems.
2. DO YOUR LEY LINES AND DOMAINS
When I confessed to my friend that I haven’t unlocked any of my domains, she yelled at me for 3 mins straight, and for a good reason. Domains are VERY important for artifacts, and weapon ascension materials, so complete them when you need them. (for each domain you unlock, you get 50 ar exp and 5 primogems and there are 26 domains, that that would be 130 primos and 1.3k ar exp.) I do this daily, and get around 500 ar exp. Ley lines are also crucial for resources, like mora and character level up books. Most of them give you 100-200 ar exp, and I do both of these until I run out of resin.
3. AS SOON AS YOU GET A STORY KEY, USE IT OR SAVE UP AND USE THEM ALL AT ONCE
As we all know, we get story keys when we do commissions, thus another reason why they are SO IMPORTANT. You need to USE the story keys, as you learn a bit more about the characters of the games, AND you get ar exp and primogems (most story quests give you 60 primogems and 1-2k ar exp). Notice I’m mentioning story quests, NOT hangouts, as hangouts require more story keys and generally don’t give you a bunch of rewards.
3. UNLOCK ALL YOUR TELEPORT WAYPOINTS
This is another way to earn primogems and ar exp, as well as making traveling around teyvat 10x easier (you don’t have to walk all the way to do a quest) You get 5 primogems and 50 ar exp for each teleport waypoint you unlock, and there are 99 tp waypoints, so that is 485 primos and 4.95k ar exp. Pretty self explanatory.
4. CHALLENGE THE TROUNCE DOMAINS
The trounce domains include stormterror/dvalin and childe/tartaglia. You may also do the other domains which usually give you artifacts, 500 ar exp, some shrine keys, 40 primogems, and other stuff. In total, the trounce domains give you 2-3k ar exp.
5. OPEN CHESTS AS SOON AS YOU SEE THEM
Chests are very valuable, because apart from commissions, they are the only way to tediously farm primogems. Usually, each chest gives you 20 xp and 1-10 primogems, again very self explanatory.
6. WORLD QUEST = AR EXP
You ever see those little exclamation points that pop up on your map, those are world quests, and they give you 100-1k ar exp, by what I have seen. Occasionally, they also give you primogems. Again, this is very clear, you complete the quests, you get the rewards.
7. YOU SEE AN ELECTROCULOUS/GEOCULOUS/ANEMOCULOUS, YOU GET IT
These items go to the statue of 7s, which increase your stamina, primogems, AND constellation keys/element sigils. I believe the ar exp it gives you increases as you get more ‘oculouses, so it goes from 100 to somewhere around 1,00 i think. Anyways, my point is that upgrading so7 (statue of 70) will give you plenty of rewards.
Now that i have gone over the tips, I will share my schedule when farming in the game.
FIRST, I do my commissions
THEN, I check what I need to ascend weapons/characters
NEXT, I take my farming route (start in springvale, move to dawn winery, dihula marsh, liyue harbor, narakumi island, rest of inazuma etc) and collect the resources I need.
AS I GO ALONG THE WAY, I pick up every single chest and oculous I see, I also kill any enemies I see/do every ley line and domain until I run out of resin.
AFTER THAT, I open the adventurer’s handbook and look at the trounce domains, and if they are refreshed, I do them.
FINALLY, check my world quests and do them.
(IF I RECEIVE A STORY KEY, I USE IT AND DO THE STORY QUEST I CHOOSE TO UNLOCK.)
I really hope this helped you guys, happy travels in teyvat (:
