We're month since Genshin Impact's initial release, and we're already here at our second event. The Marvelous Merchant event has already been underway for two days and we have just the info you need to complete this silly scavenger hunt each day.
The Marvelous Merchant event is essentially a new daily quest that consists of three steps: find the mysterious merchant, give him what he wants, and pick a prize. This guide will keep track of each day's locations, what is being asked for, and the prizes that can be redeemed. Read on below to check them out.
Once you get up to around Adventure Rank 25, Genshin Impact starts to turn into a different thing. What was once a story-driven affair evolves into something more like a traditional MMO.
This isn't to say there isn't anything to do, though there are fewer novel things to uncover at this stage in the game. That being said, this is where you really need to start focusing your energy in the right direction, particularly if you're a non-paying player. Read on below to get a sense of what to expect in Genshin Impact's mid-game.
Hello and well met, fellow adventurers of Teyvat! Check out our all-in-one resource for all things Genshin Impact. We'll be sure to add more as we keep playing the game, so be sure to come back here to check for updates!
If you're playing Genshin Impact without spending money, you'll always need to be looking for ways to optimize your play to maximize rewards without getting stuck in a position where you're tempted to spend. The most obvious trap here is the game's gacha system that is constantly dangling cool new characters in front of you in hopes that you'll want to go all-in on Wishes.
Primogems are the only currency you can use on Genshin Impact's virtual slot machine, but you don't always need to be spending them to try and get new characters. In fact, at times that can be a really bad idea. Read on for some tips from a seasoned gacha player about how to manage your premium currency most efficiently.
Genshin Impact is great fun, but make no mistake: this is a gacha game. It is designed specifically to suck away time and money from you, and one of the ways the game does this is by offering a drip-feed of currencies you will feel compelled to collect and spend in the optimal way.
See below for the most important currencies Genshin Impact offers, how to collect them, and what you should spend them on. This guide is a resource for early game players to know what they're in for in terms of grind, as well as what they should hold onto heading into the late game.
If you've followed our progression guide for Genshin Impact up to Adventure Rank 25, you have reached the point where you can face off against Stormterror on a weekly basis for some pretty sweet rewards. Beating this deadly dragon isn't as easy as it is in the story mission when you got a loaner Venti to dish out damage for you, though, so you'll need to go into the fight with a plan.
Regardless of who is on your adventurer team, Stormterror is beatable, particularly if you read his attack patterns and know how to react to them. See above for a video showing a successful run and read on for some tips on how to do it yourself.
Genshin Impact has unveiled its first of what we can expect to be many special events and ongoing content updates. This latest update adds the Elemental Crucible Event. This event is available to any players that have reached Adventure Rank 20, have completed the Prologue, and completed a minor new quest from Timaeus that introduces the event itself.
Read on below for more info about how this event works and if you should take it on.
Genshin Impact continues to capture our attention, and if you're looking for a good way to understand the game's systems and how to optimize your progress, you've come to the right place. There's myriad systems, currencies, etc. in this game and it is a lot to take in, but with this handy guide, you should be able to get a leg up on progressing in the game's early going.
For the purposes of this guide, this applies to players who are just starting the game up until around Adventure Rank 25. We'll be developing more guides for later ranks as we get there.
Otherwise, let's assume you've been playing the game for a bit and have unlocked a few characters via wishes. Now what? Your next step is to try and figure out who among your heroes belongs on your team to make you as capable as possible. Check out some tips on how to do exactly that below.
Last week, the massively anticipated Genshin Impact released, and now it seems to be the only game anyone's talking about. There's a good reason for this, or rather several. It looks great, it's free, and it actually follows through as an experience that takes meaningful inspiration from Breath of the Wild.
In case you're looking at Genshin Impact from the outside wondering if it's all it's cracked up to be, you're in the right place. The short answer is yes, but here's some more things that might inform whether you should dive into the game.
We’re getting closer and closer to Halloween every day, which means everyone’s gearing up to watch their favorite horror movies, make weekend trips out to pumpkin patches, and do all kinds of other, fun seasonal stuff before this month ends and everyone looks toward Thanksgiving.

Among Us! continues to be getting a lot of play in these parts, and since our first guide we've learned a thing or two about the game. This is especially true regarding the imposter role, as its a relatively rare opportunity that we've now put enough time into to understand how to win consistently in this sneaky role.
Check out our top tips below, and see if it helps your own Among Us! game.
Clan Wars 2 completely reshapes what being in a clan in Clash Royale means and the different gameplay options it grants. It's a big shift for the game as a whole, but it mostly feels like it's one for the better. Read on below to learn about what Clan Wars 2 is all about.
Among Us! is one of the biggest suprise hits of the year, most notably because it's a two-year old free-to-play game. I get the appeal, though. In following and writing about games through this pandemic, I've noticed a distinct desire for game play to be more social. I even suggested a few games that accomplish this, though I couldn't have predicted the way droves of people have gravitated to Among Us!
For those unfamiliar, Among Us! is a social deduction multiplayer game where up to 10 players take on the role of either a crew member or an imposter. Crew members need to wander the ship and complete tasks to win the game, but imposters try to muck up those plans by sabotaging the ship and killing other crew members. Along the way, there will be times where the crew convenes and votes on who they think is an imposter, and the player with the most votes gets tossed out the air lock. Crew members win if they successfully complete all their tasks or get rid of all the imposters. Imposters win if they kill the entire crew or successfully sabotage the ship.
The gameplay is not too unlike a lot of popular board games like Secret Hitler or Codenames, but in its digital form it can be a bit daunting, particularly if you haven't played a game like it before. With that in mind, here are a few tips to help you dive into Among Us! and have fun with it.
