Genshin Impact: How To Farm Character EXP

Find out the best possible ways to farm character EXP in Genshin Impact.

As you progress in Genshin Impact, you will encounter stronger enemies. To battle these string and high-level enemies, you need to increase your character’s level too, and that required character EXP. But nothing to worry about as we have got you covered for everything you need to know about how to farm character EXP in Genshin Impact.

How to Get Character EXP in Genshin Impact

You earn character EXP in Genshin Impact by obtaining different materials. There are in total three different materials named Hero’s Wit, Adventurer’s EXP, and Wanderer’s Advice in Genshin Impact that can help you farm character EXP. We will go through each of them individually.

How to Obtain Hero’s Wit

Hero’s Wit is the most valuable, but the rarest of all the materials that give you character EXP. A single Hero’s Wit will give you a whopping 20,000 EXP. This huge amount of EXP is large enough to make a significant difference in your character’s level if you have already reached a great level. However, at smaller levels, it can help you simply increase the level by 1 or even 2 depending on your current level.

They are only available as rewards and you cannot earn them by simply exploring the world of Teyvat. Since they are a part of event rewards, you will much likely get them after reaching Adventure Rank 20. If you haven’t reached that far yet, it is better to first read how to boost your Adventure Rank.

Once you have reached Adventure Rank 20, you will get them as a reward for completing certain tasks and levels in the Battle Pass. However, you can also get them by purchasing the Wayfarer’s Supply Bundle from the store. The bundle costs 980 Genesis Crystals, or $15, and gives 50 Hero’s Wit.

How to Get Adventurer’s EXP

Adventurer’s EXP gives 5,000 character EXP points. While they offer less amount of EXP than Hero’s Wit, they are much easily accessible in the game. Hence, they make one of the best ways to farm character EXP in Genshin Impact.

You can easily collect a decent amount of Adventurer’s EXP by playing Abyssal Domains. Abyssal Domains have 8 different floors to complete, and clearing each floor gives you a certain amount of Adventurer’s EXP. Here’s what you will get by completing each floor in Abyssal Domains.

  • First two floors: 3 Adventurer’s EXP
  • Third and Fourth floor: 5 Adventurer’s EXP
  • Fifth and Sixth floor: 6 Adventurer’s EXP
  • Seventh and Eighth floor: 7 Adventurer’s EXP

You can only get these rewards from Abyssal Domains, so don’t try to keep farming only on the first two floors for low-level enemies.

Another way to get Adventurer’s EXP is through Ley Line Outcrops: Blossom of Revelation. You can easily find these Ley Lines in the game. Once you have found a Ley Line outcrop, interact with it to enter a battle. There will be a plethora of enemies spawned to battle against you. Defeat all of them and then use 20 Original Resin to get rewards including Adventurer’s EXP.

These enemies are all going to be tough and high level, so consider taking some of the 5 rated characters and weapons with you. Ley Lines can give you ten to eleven Adventurer’s EXP making them the best way to get character EXP in Genshin Impact.

How to Obtain Wanderer’s Advice

The Wanderer’s Advice gives you 1,000 character EXP. Hence, they will not remain an efficient way of getting EXP after the initial few levels. You can collect Wanderer’s Advice from the Ley Line Outcrops and common chests.

Those are all the three different ways to farm character EXP in Genshin Impact. Each character has a max cap limit. However, you can raise this cap by ascending them, which will require collecting ascension materials.
