The Genshin Influence participant that took one of many sport’s worst characters all the best way to max stage solo would not suggest it, however he says he discovered loads doing it over the four-to-five months it took him to finish the achievement.
The last word Amber major reached the sport’s stage 90 cap (and Journey Rank 50) earlier this week with out taking part in a single different character except he completely needed to, and with out paying a cent of actual cash. Genshin Influence is normally about mixing characters with totally different elemental attributes to defeat enemies. The sport offers you many free characters to finish your four-person crew (others can be found by gacha pulls), however, when you’re like this bold participant, you do not have to make use of them.
Amber is a bow-using pyro character that we have positioned on the backside of our Genshin Influence character tier listing. She’s not a very robust alternative within the sport’s massive solid of characters, primarily due to her lack of synergy and utility in robust battles—and that is assuming you are taking part in the sport correctly. That wasn’t the case for this Genshin Influence participant, who goes by Sorta, from taking the bunny-themed archer by lots of the sport’s content material fully solo.
“I began the account again in Might,” Sorta advised PC Gamer. “At that time, I had been taking part in Genshin on my major account for a couple of months and was nicely into the late sport.
“I puzzled how far it would be attainable to go [through the game] with solely a single character. Amber appeared like the right match to determine that out—enjoyable playstyle/character, underrated talents, plus she’s playable proper at the start,” he mentioned.

“I spotted fairly early on that it would not be attainable to beat each puzzle/quest with solely Pyro, so I switched to seeing if I may max out her stage,” Sorta mentioned. A few of Genshin Influence’s story quests require you to make use of the sport’s major character for his or her distinctive Anemo talents. This requirement locked Sorta out of coming into the sport’s newer Inazuma area, the place the latest story quests lie. As a substitute, he was caught grinding the day by day Commissions and spending his Unique Resin forex to collect level-up supplies for Amber.
The worst a part of the grind? The Pyro Regisvine boss that drops the gadgets you have to stage up Amber. Her strongest assaults are Pyro, however the Pyro Regisvine is proof against these. Common gamers would swap in a Cryo character to get the job performed, however Sorta is not an everyday participant. As a substitute, he needed to roll on the usual banner utilizing free forex from taking part in the sport on a Rust bow that will increase Amber’s bodily harm, and have “lots of persistence.”
“It was virtually a sport inside the sport, even when the sport was typically simply dodging Regisvine pellets for 10 minutes to get supplies.”
I requested him if he’d do one thing like this once more. He mentioned he’d “most likely do a Catalyst-only crew,” which might imply solely utilizing characters who can use that particular weapon kind. “That manner I might nonetheless should get artistic in fight, however would not get locked out of so many Domains/puzzles (Inazuma). Not having to make use of Rust to interrupt Pyro Abyss Mage shields and kill the Pyro Regisvine can be a reduction too.”
Sorta mentioned he discovered loads from this self-imposed Amber problem. “The largest one by far is that any character may be viable,” he mentioned. “Possibly not as a one-shot-the-entire-Spiral-Abyss factor, however when you discover a character that you just like, you possibly can positively discover loads of methods to have enjoyable,” he mentioned.
“Amber’s additionally higher than some individuals give her credit score for,” Sorta added. “Although my bodily harm construct most likely isn’t probably the most compelling argument.”
