This is a guide to Character Ascension, or going past the max level, in Genshin Impact. Learn how to level up your charcter past the level cap and the bonuses obtained from Ascending.
List of Contents
Ascension is a feature which allows a Character to go past their initial level cap, as well as providing additional bonuses in itself.
Players aren't able to roll for Ascension-related items, or pay money to obtain more of them. Currently, Ascension can be achieved only through in-game leveling up and item collection.
How to Level Up
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!
|Ascension Level||Required Character Level||Required Adventure Level|
Ascending a Character requires unique Materials obtained in Abyssal Domains and by exploring the map. It's also required to raise your Adventure Rank first before Ascending to the next level.
|1||Raise the Character of your choice to their max level|
Select the Character screen from the Menu
Select Ascend from the bottom right, or press the indicated Ascend button
Confirm the required ingredients, then select Ascend
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
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.
Each character has a specific stat that increases at each Ascension Rank past Rank 2. Diluc, for instance, will gain more CRIT Rate as his Ascension Rank increases.
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|
Fortunately, it's easy to check in-game where the required Ascension Materials for your Character are located, even before they hit max level.
Navigate to the Level Up screen and click the indicated icon (or press the indicated button)
You'll be able to see the required Materials and check details of where to find them.
You won't need to scavenge randomly to find the required Ascension Materials, so be sure to check the Ascension Materials for your favorite Characters in advance, and take advantage of chances to collect them.
Note that after your character has already reached the max level, the Level Up option will change to Ascend, and you'll be able to check the Materials more easily from the right side of the screen.
