Genshin Impact Characters to level.jpg

Have many characters at your disposal? Want to switch in the heat of battle? Or simply wanting to change your roster before setting out on missions or in the fields? Our character switching guide for Genshin Impact has you covered!

How To Switch Characters

During Battles

Game UI Screen Mobile.jpg
Tap the character's icon on the upper right side of the screen for mobile, using the number 1-5 for PC, and the dpad for the PS4. You'll be able to see which characters active by checking the upper right part of the screen.

Changing Team Roster

The Team members can also be changed (out of combat) by summoning Paimon and selecting change character from the menu. This will allow you to organize a 4 character group. Note that there are several sets for team composition, lacking characters for a team? Learn how to get more characters with our guide below.

How to Get Characters

Before Entering Domains

When entering temples, you will be prompted to create a team before being able to enter the temple. There will also be restrictions as some dungeons require a certain element(s) in order for them to be completed. Make sure to have a variety of characters on your team!
