Character Tier List

Exploration Rating Criteria

Genshin - Exploration SS Rank SS Tier Characters who have Skills or Talents that make either land, air, or sea traversal the easiest, or have talents that are considered invaluable for farming materials, puzzle solving, or ease of survival.
Exploration S Rank S Tier Characters who have talents for land, air, or sea traversal, but are less comparable against the characters in the SS tier. Characters who can easily buff or sustain their allies with the use of their Skills (that are easy to activate) are included.
Exploration A Rank A Tier Characters who have talents that can increase movement speed, and reduce stamina consumption. Characters who have talents that help farming overworld materials are also included.
Exploration B Rank B Tier Characters who at least have some utility inherent with their weapon or Element, such as elemental totem activation, ore breaking, or target practice with bows. Talents that help with the game's secondary content like Fishing or Housing are also included.
Exploration C Rank C Tier Characters having limited or no utility at all for overworld exploration.
