One of the most satisfying features of Genshin Impact is the ability to explore and run around its massive open-world map. Players traversing around Teyvat will usually find themselves using waypoints to teleport to their destinations to save time. However, when exploring new sites, climbing towering mountains will be inevitable.
Much like the titles that influenced the birth of Genshin Impact, it boasts of an exemplary collection of treasures and creatures hidden on its islands. Given the game’s various mountain ranges and valleys, climbing is essential to locating most of these hidden artifacts, and as such, players are frequently finding ways to deal with the stamina system.
A character’s stamina is what keeps players from easily jumping and running around all the time throughout the game. When climbing, swimming, gliding, and running, the player’s stamina gauge will gradually deplete. When a player loses all their stamina, they must stop to recuperate it before continuing whatever they are doing.
If the stamina gauge is consumed while swimming, the character in effect will immediately die. Generally, this makes climbing mountains more daunting but luckily, one player has discovered a way to do it the easy way.
Once players unlock the option to change their Traveler’s Vision from Anemo to Geo, they also allegedly unlock the skill to easily climb mountainsides and cliffs. Using the Traveler’s Geo Elemental Ability, players can create customized resting ledges on mountainsides, which allows them to recover stamina without falling back to the base of the mountain.
Considering recently found interaction between Jean and Klee, this sort of distinct skill utilization is becoming more and more prevalent in the game. Whereas typical stamina-saving tips include stocking items that replenish stamina, this one depends on the simple utilization of a skill.
In addition, it also gives a great reason to try the Traveler’s Geo skills. The elemental ability can’t be put on any kind of surface, but for the most part, it appears that players can create a ledge on most cliff-sides.
After summoning the ledge, players can easily climb to the makeshift rim, drop on it, and wait for their stamina to recover before climbing again. Needless to say, it isn’t a quicker way to climb mountains, but nonetheless, it makes high altitudes easier to access in Genshin Impact.
Sadly, skills that propel a character into the air or improve stamina are hard to come by in the game, so players must depend on these unconventional methods. And with upcoming Geo-users like Zhongli, who makes mining a lot easier, may find themselves exploring and climbing by foot more than expected anyways.
