In the world of the popular game developed by miHoYo called Genshin Impact, the main character is allowed to switch between elements to make a strong addition to any team. The thing is, some people have no idea how to do this mechanic. The good news is that there is a simple process that you can complete by teleporting to a certain place. Here is the guide to change elements with the main character in the game.
Way to change the element to Geo
Everyone is able to change the main character between elements. It can be done by teleporting to a Statue of the Seven. It has been known that the world of Teyvat is divided into two regions: Mondstadt and Liyue. The first one has all Anemo Statue of the Seven, whereas the latter one has all Geo Statue of the Seven. In addition, each region has an associated Oculus with Anemoculus being the one for Mondstadt and Geocuulus being the one for Liyue.
Basically, for those who want to change your main character to the Geo element, the first thing that you will need to do is to choose any Statue of the Seven in Liyue and then teleport to it. After that, interact with the statue and choose Resonate with Geo. On the other hand, you can just teleport to any Statue of the Seven in Mondstadt if you want to change to Anemo. Once it is done, lastly, choose Resonate with Anemo.
At the beginning of the game, you have a chance to switch between Geo (Earth) and Anemo (Wind). Switching between these two will give you different element skills as well as element burst skills. For those who have a character of a certain element and have to interact or activate an object in the world, you might want to get them.
Here is an instance. A Geoculus is challenging to reach without having to use the Geo skill of the main character. You are allowed by the Geo skill to put a sphere and to jump on the top of it in order to raise up your jump. Apart from that, switching elements is so good in case you do not have any Anemo character, for example, and you also need one to activate something or to complete a puzzle.
The whole thing might be changed as the developers of Genshin Impact, miHoYo keep adding the new content, including the ones that come in the future patches like 1.1. It is possible that the main character will be able to change between many more elements.
Between Anemo and Geo, which one is better?
In the comparison of which one is better between Anemo and Geo, there is no right answer. In general, the comparison is usually subjective and it is usually affected by personal opinion.
It is clear that your Adventure will have different talents which depends on the one that you go for, and it is normal that you have a preference with which one you love more when using it in combat. Thanks to the charged attack and wind vortex ult, Anemo gets a plus point, while Geo is blessed with some interesting AoE moves when it upgrades through the Constellation tree.
In the end, it depends on the right element that is used in the combination with the other members of your party. Making the right team composition in the game is the main key. So, if you have the other characters that get along well with something like Geo, then you might look at that. It is especially true if you already have someone like Venti or some other Anemo character in your hand.
About elements in Genshin Impact
There are currently seven elements in Genshin Impact to discover. All of them are the powers of the Archons themselves. Each of them corresponds to one of the seven gods that exist in the world of the game. As of now, there are only two available regions in the game: Mondstadt and Liyue, which worship Anemo and Geo respectively. As for the other nations, it seems like they will be added in the future updates. Here is the list of the elements in the game and their corresponding nations:
- Anemo (Wind): Mondstadt
- Geo (Earth): Liyue
- Electro (Lighning): Inazuma
- Dendro (Nature): Sumeru
- Hydro (Water): Fontaine
- Pyro (Fire): Natlan
- Cyro (Ice): Snezhnaya
The Ley Line Disorders are inflicted within an aura by a few of them with the help of certain moves. Those include:
- Engulfing Storm (Electro): This one drains energy recharge
- Slowing Water (Hydro): This one increases skill cooldown time (around 80% slower)
- Smouldering Flames (Pyro): This one inflicts damage over time.
- Condensed Ice (Cyro): This one increases stamina consumption.
At the start of the Genshin Impact, everyone is given Anemo or wind abilities that can be used in combat. The Geo abilities also can be unlocked to be used for combat and travel. These two are the only ones currently able to be used by the players, but the developers have stated that they are planning to make the main character take the advantage of all elements.
Due to the fact that the main character of the Genshin Impact is not originally from the world of Teyvat, it is much easier for them to use the elemental abilities of the world than it is for the other inhabitants. The main character is basically the one that is gifted with Anemo abilities after getting in touch with an Anemo Statue of the Seven. Earning those abilities is such an easy thing to do. According to Paimon, they usually only give to the ones that are special. Besides, the main character also has the unique ability that makes it possible to take the advantage of the power of more than one element at the same time.
