Happy One Year Anniversary Genshin Impact!

Can you believe that it’s been a year since the release of the wonderful game by miHoYo, Genshin Impact. Since then, we’ve been addicted to the gacha system and the ever-loving and evolving contents. In a way, it’s starting to feel a lot like Hotel California. Once you get in,  you can never leave… or so we hope.

If you haven’t tried the game yet but you want to, here’s are 6 things you need to take note of.

1) The More You Grind, The More Fun It Is

Genshin Impact In Game

Genshin Impact is primarily a gacha game. Which means, the more you grind, the more you spend, the more reward you will be able to enjoy. And we’re saying this with a straight face. There are tons to explore in Teyvat, not only the main story. Each region has different side quests and challenges for you to explore. Plus, with the constant content update, you will never get tired of playing it.

Additionally, you can complete some missions with your friends or team through the multiplayer mode.

2) Learn About The Elements

Genshin Impact Elements

As an open-world adventure-action game, it might come as a surprise to players in the first place that the game has a rather complex and sophisticated battle system.

In the Genshin Impact universe, elements play a major role in the game. For example, you can use ice attacks against an enemy that was hit with a water attack, which will freeze them. Once you learn about the various elements in the game, it becomes a great way to get a head start and will allow you to easily customize a team according to your playstyle.

3) Decide Which Characters You Want To Use

Like all games, different players have different preferences on the heroes or characters they like to use. Same goes for Genshin Impact. You can either choose to pull for a character’s banner or with the default playable characters. What’s important is enjoying the game.

4) Decide Which Platforms You Want To Play On

Right now, you can play Genshin Impact on your PC, PlayStation 4 and 5 consoles as well as on the mobile. But, we do recommend playing it on the PC as the experience is more interactive and engaging compared to the phones and consoles. In fact, if you use the keyboard, it’ll be easier for you to learn the controls and movements of your characters.


It’s crucial to get used to the controls you’ve bind them. Additionally, it’s crucial to understand how the controls work as there are missions where you would need muscle memory to help you solve the puzzles and missions.

6) Be prepared to spend some money on certain characters.

Now, we hear you and we understand. If you aren’t thoroughly invested in Genshin Impact, you’ll likely play this game as it is. But, if you’re hooked in the first few early story or missions, then chances are you’ve become invested in the game itself. This would mean that the chances of you pulling for a character, or hoping to pull for a character will be higher.

With each update there will be a banner change and with each banner change a few new characters will be introduced. Once you learn about their lore, their gameplay and if you’re keen on building and evolving your Genshin Impact universe, then you will spend.

We advice you to pick and choose which character you want to pull for and which one you want to take a pass on.
