How to Select an Expedition

Genshin - Spectral Secrets Expedition Types

There are 3 Expedition types!

Expeditions are either S-Rank, A-Rank, or B-Rank. There are a total of 7 daily expeditions, but you can only select a maximum of 4.

The needs will vary per player, but we recommend choosing 1 S-Rank, 2 A-Ranks, and 1 B-Rank each day because A-Rank expeditions give more Primogems than B-Rank ones!

S-Rank Expeditions need Preliminary Investigations!

Genshin - Preliminary Investigation
Before you can dispatch your characters on an S-Rank expeditions, you will first need to perform a Preliminary Investigation. After lighting up all Electric Lamps and defeating enough Specters, you'll be free to begin the expedition!

How to Dispatch Characters

You have to keep three things in mind when dispatching characters: the number of required people, the recommended elements, and the expedition rating. Note that you can't use characters on regular expeditions!

Factors Notes and Tips
Genshin - Required PeopleRequired People This is the minimum amount of characters you need to start an expedition. You can have more than the required people, but never less!
Genshin - Recommended ElementsRecomended Elements Having characters with one of the recommended elements will increase your expedition rating!
