Backstep Before Slashing
In Genshin Impact, don't be surprised if you run into groups of enemies. Like in essentially any game, it's always smart to get some dodging in at times. However, in MMO style games, it's easy to go in and mash away with your attacks.
Sure, you can still do this, but just make sure to stay elusive while you do so because groups will gang up on you. Now of course this is more for standard enemies. Once you come across tougher foes, it's up to you how you want to approach it.
But by the time you do find yourself in a trickier situation, you'll more than likely be a pro. But, in short, dodge, attack, attack, dodge, repeat, pretty much. Just try not to button mash your way as I mentioned and you'll be in great shape.
Take Advantage of Your Powers
There are some cool special powers that you can utilize in Genshin Impact. You will be able to use these almost right away. You start off with two different specialties, each dealing a certain amount of damage. They look pretty awesome and are highly effective.
Using these is a good way to take down some of the groups of enemies we discussed earlier. It's a good way to eliminate them in style. Yes, definitely still swing that sword of yours, for the most part, to get some quick hits in and take down foes with swift attacks.
It's especially important to continue using the sword because your special abilities do have a cooldown period so you can't spam it. This certainly shouldn't come as a surprise as most games with abilities like these have cooldown periods. Luckily, it's not long, and you'll be using them again in no time.
Grab Plenty of Items
You'll likely end up doing this anyway because let's face it; in any MMO/Zelda/Skyrim game, it's easy to just pick up almost anything you see. Well, the same holds true here. Try to grab anything that seems unique to you or any food-like items.
Food is especially critical because it will heal you up, another familiar concept in gaming. However, certain other foods can be used in cooking too. If you find some carrots, for example, you can combine this with some other fresh ingredients to create the perfect meal.
So yes, unfortunately, not every single edible item can be used for healing and you need to cook, but there are some things that are ready to go such as apples. If you come across a good place to cook, keep it in mind as you might want to come back to it.
