What is the Friendship Level?

How to Increase Friendship Level

Genshin - Friendship Level

Friendship Level is increased by gaining Companionship EXP. This is shared by the entire active party upon gaining it, which means everyone receives the same amount regardless of level.

As of the moment, there's no way to numerically gauge how much Friendship EXP you have or how much Companionship EXP you need to level up.

How to get Companionship EXP

Do Daily Commissions

Daily Commissions

Daily Commissions are a great way to get Companionship EXP. Each Commission gives you 55 EXP, giving you a total of 220 EXP. You also get 95 EXP for completing all Daily Commissions, so make sure you do them everyday!

You can check the available Daily Commissions in the Quest Menu Screen.

How to Unlock Daily Commissions
