Let's go. To increase your friendship level in Genshin Impact, follow the steps below:

- All characters in your current party gain Companion Experience and Friendship increases automatically.
- You can check the character's friendship level on their profile screen.
- To improve friendship with each character, you may need to complete tasks multiple times, as characters have different friendship levels.
There are several ways to gain Companion experience in Genshin Impact – by completing Daily Commissions, Estates, and defeating bosses. Follow the tips below:
- Always check rewards before completing a mission – not all events will award you company experience.
- Unlock Adventure Rank 12 to access Daily Commissions.
- Unlock Adventure Rank 20 to unlock daily battle pass commissions that give better rewards.
- Be sure to follow the news of events – often during events you can get a bonus just by logging into the game.

Now that you know the basics of how to upgrade a friendship in Genshin Impact, you may want to find more detailed information. Read this section to find answers to some of the most common questions related to Genshin Impact.
EXP in Genshin Impact is used to level up characters. It can be farmed in several ways – first of all, EXP increases each time you kill an enemy. Second, you get extra EXP for getting Traveler's Advice (1000 EXP), Adventurer's Experience (5000 EXP), and Hero's Spirit (20 EXP), given for completing missions. They can also be found in treasure chests.
There are ten friendship levels in the game. Levels 1-3 only unlock character stories. At level 4, you unlock a bonus story and lines related to other characters. Levels 5 and 6 provide access to the remaining character stories. At level 10, you get a character name card and the Hitherto Unknown reward.
You can invite up to 45 friends to join you on Genshin Impact. However, you and your friends must first reach Adventure Rank 16. In the main menu, click on the two people with a plus icon. Add friends by entering their 9-digit UID number. The UID number is located at the bottom of your profile screen.
Adventure XP is essential for your Adventure Rank to increase and unlock new possibilities, such as Daily Commissions. You can earn it by completing main story quests and daily commissions. When you access the Adventurer's Handbook, you can learn how to activate waypoints, open chests, and cook food, and start earning Adventure XP from these actions. Adventure XP also increases as you explore new locations on the map.
To build a team at the start of the game, you simply need to progress through the main quests. Some characters can be recruited by completing additional challenges. However, to unlock most characters, you need to spend the in-game currency – fate. There is no option to choose a character – they are given randomly. To earn more Fate, complete daily in-game activities to obtain Primogems, which are much more common and can be exchanged for Fate later. Another way to earn more Fate is to exchange it for Masterless Stardust which you get each time using a wish. Finally, you can buy in-game currency with real money.
There are several ways to gain company experience, and the rewards vary. Daily Commissions will earn you 25-55 points depending on your Adventure Rank – the higher, the more points you get. Daily commission bonus rewards are higher – 45-95 points depending on your adventure rank. Ley line outcrops only bring 10-20 points, like estates. You can earn 30-45 points for defeating normal bosses and 55-70 points for defeating weekly bosses. Random events can be completed up to 10 times per day and award 10-15 points each.
Hopefully with the help of our guide you will be able to develop a friendship with your Genshin Impact characters. Don't forget to log into the game regularly to keep up with special events and avoid missing daily quests – this will help you progress through the character story faster.
