What is Character Ascension?

Effects of Ascension

Ascension is a feature which allows a Character to go past their initial level cap, as well as providing additional bonuses in itself.

  • Raises a character's max level
  • Raises a character's base stats
  • Raises a character's Ascension Bonus Stat
  • Unlocks new Talents

How to Level Up

Cannot Unlock Constellations

Genshin Impact - Constellations

When you obtain the same character multiple times from Wish rolls, you will obtain materials needed to unlock a Character's Constellations. These items are unrelated to Ascension, so you will not be able to unlock Constellations through Character Ascension. You'll need to roll a lot of Wishes if you want to open up all of these!

Since Adventure Rank will go up as you complete Quests and continue playing the game, collecting Materials is the only real hurdle for Ascension.

Methods for Collecting Ascension Materials
  • Searching the Map
  • Abyssal Domains
  • Purchase them in Shops
  • Defeat Bosses
  • Dropped by Enemies
  • Adventure Rank Rewards (Main Character)

Ascension Preview

Navigate to the Level Up screen and click the indicated icon (or press the indicated button)

You'll be able to see the amount of required Materials and check details of where to find them.

This preview prevents you from getting lost on which items to find, and focus on the materials that one character needs. This is important, especially when getting materials from Boss enemies and searching for local specialties.

Should You Ascend?

Necessary for Breaking Level Cap

In order to break past the level cap on each character, Ascension is a necessary aspect of play. To proceed through the story, Ascension becomes necessary as enemies grow more powerful, so keep Ascension in mind as you play and collect the listed Ascension Materials for your characters whenever you have the opportunity.

Best Characters to Level Up Early

Strengthens Your Characters for the Next World Level

Each World Level increase means that enemies and bosses become stronger. This makes the game more challenging, requiring you to ascend more characters as you play. Make sure you ascend your characters around 5-10 levels higher than enemies. This makes sure that you can handle most fights with ease.

Raises Characters' Base Stats

Not only is Ascension necessary for breaking the level cap, but it also raises the Character's base stats and unlocks a new Talent for them.

Ascension Bonus Stat Increase

Each character has a specific stat that increases at each Ascension Rank past Rank 2. This can include stats like CRIT Rate, CRIT Damage, Elemental Mastery, and different kinds of Damage Bonuses.
