How it works and how to get more

Once your character reaches a higher level in Genshin Impact, Resin becomes one of the most important resources you get in the game. It’s in very short supply, and you’ll have to spend quite a bit each time you complete certain high-level activities.

But how Resin works is a little confusing and especially frustrating. Fortunately, this Resin guide has all the information you need, including some tips on how to optimize your use of Resin, what Genshin Impact Condensed Resin is, how to get more, and what to spend.

Genshin Impact Resin: How it works

Although Genshin Impact is a free-to-play game inspired by the very popular “gacha” RPG on mobile, the microtransactions are mostly harmless and there is only one system that tries to limit how fast players can progress. These are called resins.

Here’s how it works:

Resin is a regeneration resource that is used to access rewards from certain activities.

You can have a maximum of 120 Resins at one time.

It regenerates at a rate of 1 Resin per 8 minutes.

It will take 16 real hours to fully regenerate your Resin.

There are ways to quickly recover some (described below).

When you defeat a weekly boss like Dvalin or Andrius, for example, you can’t claim the rewards you get from those fights right away. You must first spend 60 resin. It’s a system similar to the “stamina” gauge found in mobile games or the way most MMOs will only let you get loot from raid bosses once a week.

The problem with Resin nowadays is that it’s too easy to blow up your daily supply in a few minutes and then nothing to do until it regenerates. If you’ve finished the story and explored most of the map, farm dungeons or loot bosses are really the only things left to do – and Resin makes that pretty slow.

What should I spend on resin?

As I said, most endgame activities in Genshin Impact require a certain amount of Resin to access their associated rewards. Here’s a quick break from each activity and how much Resin costs:

Ley Line Outcrop: 20 Resin

Abyssal Domain: 20 Resin

Elite Boss: 40 Resin

Weekly Boss: 60 Resin

Ley Line Outcrops gives you money and materials to upgrade your character. While Abyssal Domains, Elite Bosses, and Weekly Bosses all increase the reward material for your characters and their weapons in addition to some other rare resources. Generally, the rarity of a reward scales with how much Resin it costs (though rewards are always randomized and you won’t know what you’ve got until after you’ve used up the required Resin).

Well, how to get more resin?

Apart from waiting for the Resin to slowly regenerate, there were two main methods of getting more immediately. You can use an item called Fragile Resin to quickly restore 60 Resin or you can spend an increasing number of Primogems to add more Resin in a limited amount each day.

Fragile Resin is a special consumable item only given to increase your Adventure Rank. You’ll usually get one Fragile Resin for each rank, but considering how slowly you’ll rank at higher tiers it’s not a reliable way to earn more and you should spend your Brittle Resin sparingly.

Primogems can be spent to quickly add 60 Resin. Primogems are a special type of currency that you earn in Genshin Impact for doing most activities, including opening chests, completing quests, or just exploring. You can top up your Resin using this method six times per day, but each time you spend Primogems the price will go up.

Here’s how it works:

First refill: 50 Primogems

Second refill: 100 Primogems

Third refill: 100 Primogems

Fourth refill: 150 Primogems

Fifth refill: 200 Primogems

Sixth refill: 200 Primogems

What makes Genshin Impact Condensed Resin different?

Viscous Resin can be used in place of real Resin to revitalize Petrified Trees and Ley Line Flowers, and it’s worth it as Viscous Resin will net twice the usual amount of rewards.

How to Get Viscous Resin? Well, you must first become a level three reputation in Liyue. If you’re not sure what that means, here’s our explanation of the Genshin Impact reputation system.

Once you reach level three reputation in Liyue, you will receive a Condensed Resin blueprint as a reward. Open the valuable items menu on the far right of the inventory page. You will see the option to make the resin viscous when you have selected the blueprint.

Ingredients for Viscous Resin are: 40 original Resin and 1 Crystal Core.

Note that you can only hold three Viscous Resins at a time.

Finally, when you visit Ley Line Blossom and interact with it to revitalize it, the prompt will now give you the choice of using original Resin or Thick Resin.

So how do I make the most of my resin?

That’s a big problem facing hardcore Genshin Impact players today, and many are pushing MiHoYo developers to tweak the system to make it easier to get Resin. After you’ve played for about 30 to 40 hours, you’ll hit a wall where what you can do will be limited by how much Resin you have. And because the activities associated with spending them only take a few minutes to complete, you’ll quickly tear your inventory and have nothing to do. Instead of being able to play for hours on end, you’ll probably have 15 minutes of stuff to do before being forced to grind primogems or just stop playing.

Don’t spend your Primogems on Resin,though. Using them to unlock lootboxes is a much better way to spend them because the best characters and equipment you can sometimes get from them are easily worth more than some of the upgrade materials you might need. The only time this advice won’t apply is if you already have a strong team equipped with the best weapons and don’t need or want another character.

Since it fully regenerates once every 16 hours, the best method is to play Genshin Impact twice a day: Once in the morning and once at night. No matter what, during one of these playing sessions you will have less Resin as you won’t have a chance to fully recharge, but only play whenever it works with your schedule.

The good news is that it will only take you 15 minutes to detonate your Resin supply, so it’s pretty easy to get in before bed or first thing and quickly rip through some Abyssal Domains or take down an Elite Boss or two.

Here are some quick tips, though:

Prioritize your resin based on what you actually need. Abyssal Domains have different upgrade materials depending on what day of the week it is, so don’t blast all your Resin doing Ley Line Outcrops if any of the upgrade materials are available.

Don’t let your Resin sit the max 120 limit for a long time. You are just wasting the excess Resin that you can produce.

Upgrade materials are a better investment than equipment drops because they limit how powerful your character and weapons can get. Don’t waste Resin trying to get a rare piece of equipment when you have a character that needs upgrading.

Save your Fragile Resin items for when you really need them, such as if the reset on the Weekly Boss is drawing near and you forgot to complete it.

In the end, there are no good shortcuts to getting more Resin. You just have to be patient and hope that MiHoYo makes adjustments to make the whole system less penalizing. It sucks because it’s one of the major flaws in what is otherwise a stunning and beautiful RPG.
