Perform Plunge Attack to extract materials
To get the materials you need to upgrade or create weapons, you need to find a deposit and start mining Forging Materials. You mine them by attacking a particular mineral, such as deposits of stone, iron, etc. You have to attack mineral deposits with melee weapons, when they lose all their "HP," you can pick materials up. The quickest way to mine is to perform a Plunge Attack. This type of attack inflicts heavy damage, so when you see a deposit, perform these attacks to get the Forging Materials out as quickly as possible.
Did you know that character size matters a lot when it comes to going through shallow water? If you take a high character like Diluc, you can continue to walk through the location where the water is, while if you choose a low character like Qiqi in the same location, then the character will start swimming instead of walking, losing speed and stamina.
You can destroy artifacts
Few know that instead of sacrificing weaker artifacts to improve others, you can destroy them in your equipment. For destroying them, you will receive, among other things, Mora, which is the basic currency of Genshin Impact. If you don't have enough money, destroy artifacts and get Mora. A lot of artifacts will be collected along the way, most of them do not guarantee a very large amount of EXP, so sometimes it is worth sacrificing and destroying them to get Mora, which will deplete sooner or later, as the costs of upgrading increase with greater levels.
Save money so you can upgrade your equipment
There is a good opportunity to multiply the amount of gained EXP by 2, 3, or even 5 times. This is of course random, but it is worth noting that such a chance only occurs when sacrificing materials that have 3 stars of rarity. Therefore, when you use Crystals to upgrade a weapon/artifact, don't spend all of them. Instead, convert 3-star weapons/artifacts into materials to increase the chance of multiplying EXP. This will allow you to save a lot money when upgrading.
You can avoid most attacks with your Ultimate
In Genshin Impact, there are so-called. Immunity Frames during which you are invulnerable to enemy attacks. To activate Immunity Frames, attack with your Ultimate. Note, however, that this works only when a character using his Ultimate has a short animation/cutscene that precedes the attack. In most cases, to get Immunity Frames, you need to play as 5-star characters, such as Mona or Diluc. When you see that you can't avoid a powerful attack from the enemy, use your Ultimate (it must be a character that has a unique Ultimate animation) to avoid the attack.
Use 3 star weapons
This is not advice you should follow all the time, but 3-star weapons are better than 4-star weapons, at least to a point where you don't have many 4-star weapons of the same type. Why? All because of Refine. This mechanic allows you to sacrifice the same weapon you want to upgrade for a better passive weapon effect. It is much easier to find or loot a 3-star weapon from Wish than a 4-star weapon. Therefore, remember not to get rid of weapons of the same name if you intend to upgrade them, as these weapons will allow you to enhance the passive effect. Once such weapons are upgraded to Rank 3 or 4, they will be much better than the 4 star weapons of rank 1.
