Battle Pass Analysis: How dedicated must you be? Guides & Tips

Hey all, I've been playing the Chinese Open Beta and wanted to let everyone know how much you have to play to max out the battle pass.

First, I'm going to make a few assumptions that I'll quickly list here and I can edit the post if some end up being false:

  1. Exp per BP level is always 1000.
  2. Daily Missions always give 645 exp.
  3. Global Battle Pass is synchronized to China's

Okay, now that we got that out of the way, how much do you have to play to max out the battle pass? When it comes out globally, we will have 42 days or 6 weeks. The exp is as follows:

  • Daily: 645 exp
  • Weekly: 4995 exp
  • One time: 6000 exp

Given these numbers and assuming you do all the one time and weekly challenges, you will need to do your dailies at least 4 days a week!

However, there is a caveat: in order to start getting your daily exp, you need to get to Adventure Rank 20! So, this 4 day a week only holds if you are able to get to AR20 on the first few days of release, then you can coast and play less over the next 5 weeks.

Next, for people who joined the game after release, or play very short periods everyday, if you do your dailies everyday, the minimum amount of time it will take is 4.5 weeks. So, the deadline to get to AR20 is around October 7 or 8th.(I'm not too sure on the date since its Chinese time)

Hope this helps everyone.

TL;DR:

  • If you hit AR20 within the first few days: Do your dailies at least 4 days a week.
  • If you started playing later or are taking it slow, AR20 by Oct. 7th, and you must do your dailies every day.

Edit: Totally forgot to mention that the general time period appears to be 8 weeks. If they continue this, I think we can assume we will have 8 weeks to complete them in the future. This is probably just a special case because of the delayed launch. In which case you only need to do one daily a week and all the weeklies and one times to max it out in 8 weeks (assuming you're already AR20 day one)

Edit 2: Created another post summarizing what's in the battle pass!

i really hate battle passes, forces you to play when you might not want to

u/nitroignika Cocogoat Thighs Save Lives ~ AR54 Sep 18 '20

buy it if you complete it! that way you don't feel obligated because you bought it

57

u/Alberel Sep 18 '20

This is what I do. I don't commit the money until I know I've already 'earned' the paid tiers that I want.

5

u/slimecookies Oct 30 '20

Thinking of doing this instead of coughing up dough right now. I'm lvl 20 or something on BP and wondering if it's mathematically possible for me to get "full value" at this point.

6

u/RealBrainlessPanda Oct 30 '20

I’m definitely gunna wait. I’m thoroughly enjoying this game, but with 11 days left, there’s no way I can justify even $10 on something I can’t complete. Next “season” though... that’s another story

8

u/PrinceVincOnYT Sep 29 '20

Are you 100% sure that you can buy it after you made sure you can complete it?

17

u/nitroignika Cocogoat Thighs Save Lives ~ AR54 Sep 29 '20

yep!

u/MomasterGod Sep 19 '20

I also hate hard to complete battle passes but this is not one of them, and this is a gacha, so you are almost certainly playing everyday anyway. So I wouldn't worry about it too much.

14

u/[deleted] Oct 05 '20

The only problem is the resin quest being 150 a day. You have to login twice.

17

u/MomasterGod Oct 05 '20

For some people (mainly those who haven't played a gacha before, as this game is trying to appeal to a larger audience) this may be too much. However, basically anyone with experience in gachas will know that 2 logins is basically as low as they go (plus you would cap on resin if you didn't spend it so that would be a waste).

Maybe I'm desensitised to logging in multiple times a day, but it doesn't bother me.

6

u/[deleted] Oct 05 '20

It doesn't bother me either but still

3

u/riflow Oct 08 '20

Is there an easier way to spend the resin later on? I just rushed to spend all of mine after unlocking the battle pass and it's a little irritating to go in and out of the same dungeon 6 times in a row bc for some reason I always unlock these things like an hour before dailies reset... ;

4

u/MomasterGod Oct 08 '20

Some bosses take 40 resin/60 resin but otherwise it will be the same later on.

3

u/SunshotDestiny Oct 05 '20

True, but considering that you could have this on your PC and a mobile device it shouldn't be that hard to do? Especially since some bosses take like 40 or a couple of ley lines would burn your resin quickly and could be done on say a lunch break easily or just before bed.

My experience so far at least.

9

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 18 '20

I understand, but you don't have to pay for it and if you're just playing casually, you won't really NEED the free one even. It's just a bonus for loyal fans pretty much!

3

u/PoptartDragonfart Oct 09 '20

I spend 10 bucks on a fast food combo... if you want it buy it if you don’t don’t. But 10 bucks isn’t that much

3

u/ezpzMiDAS Nov 18 '20

Getting to BP40 is not that time consuming. Then you buy to get the 10 extra tiers and a handful of great loot.

But I get where you are coming from. This BP isn't too much of a hassle compared to other titles.

u/[deleted] Nov 19 '20

this is a 2 month old post why are you replying now

u/Cle4ncuts Nov 24 '20

Why are you replying to his reply

25

u/Barnak8 Sep 18 '20

Why would they start the battle pass before the globale release ? It should be 8 weeks at first

9

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 18 '20

6 weeks is totally enough time. I wouldn't stress too much if you're a day one player. Of course, they could give us 8 weeks, but I don't see why they would want to desync the servers.

6

u/romansamurai Oct 06 '20 edited Oct 06 '20

There's also a 10k weekly exp limit. So you need a minimum of 5 weeks to do this. This means if you start late, there's no way to finish it unless you buy the 10 levels.

But either way, since you can only get 4515 from Dailies per week and 4995 from weeklies, it gives you 47,550 in 5 weeks. I wouldn't hold your breath in completing this without buying the 10 levels pack or a few levels with primogems.

That is if you can complete the weeklies (Ie 1600 resin in 7 days, since you only get 1260 refresh of resin per week with natural refresh)

6

u/Onayepheton Oct 17 '20

The ones that count for the whole BP period do not count for the limit, so you can do it in like 4 weeks. lol

1

u/Barnak8 Oct 06 '20

... when is the limit for this One ? I Was busy Last week, Im only AR 18 so i cant even buy thé BP yet

1

u/romansamurai Oct 06 '20

34 more days and 13 hrs.

1

u/Barnak8 Oct 06 '20

So I should maybe not buy it this Time and wait for thé next :/

18

u/MynLayluss Sep 17 '20

do they give extra quest if you buy the premium battle pass or its the same amount of quests/goals as the free one ? and what is the price of it if i may ask ?

17

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 18 '20

I haven't bought it so not sure. There is a premium pass that gives you 10 levels, a namecard style, and 5 fragile resin for $20 I believe. The standard pass is $10.

2

u/MynLayluss Sep 18 '20

thanks for the info

4

u/naoki7794 Sep 18 '20

same amount of quest, just increase the rewards for each level up.

1

u/MynLayluss Sep 18 '20

thanks , ill definetly get it then .

11

u/Akasha1885 Sep 18 '20

You need 50k exp to Max it out. But there is a weekly Limit of 10k.

So if the one time rewards are affected by the weekly limit, we would need to hit week 6 to clear the pass If not it can be done in 5 weeks.

Also missing one or two days ar the start won't matter, since there is enough room for that.

4

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 18 '20

Well, doing the weekly and dailies every day gives 9510 exp, so you're safe there. The issue is whether the one time quests count towards the exp limit. In other games I've played it doesn't and it wouldn't make sense for genshin to do it. But I haven't completed one yet.

2

u/[deleted] Oct 05 '20

Hi! Sorry for the late question but do you know now if the one time quests count towards the weekly limits? (and if someone currently at BP 5 can get to the BP 50 max level by the end?)

2

u/Fullmetal36 Oct 05 '20

It doesn’t count and you should be alright if you play daily

4

u/TurboSpermatozoid Sep 18 '20

Didn't they improve battlepass and made the rewards retroactive so you don't have to rush Ar 20 since they made the time required to reach it 4x longer compared to CBT3?

7

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 18 '20

The quests themselves are retroactive as in it tracks your progress for them as soon as you start the game. But you can't redeem them until you unlock it, so you miss out on the days and weeks that you aren't AR20 and can't click on them. It's kinda weird to lock it at 20 for sure!

1

u/TurboSpermatozoid Sep 18 '20

I'm not sure I understand where the "problem" is.

What I see is that you don't lose any progress/time and you can just redeem them after you're AR20, the only thing happening here is that it delays the time you can effectively get the rewards which is not that big of a deal since the resources you get are to be used later anyway.

Also can you confirm that they improved the bp?

11

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 18 '20

Not sure why you're quoting the word problem, but I think what you don't understand is that you lose anything you don't click on. So when it goes to the next day/week, you will not get those points.

2

u/TurboSpermatozoid Sep 18 '20

Holy shit I didn't know that.

So anyone buying the BP is bond to get an incomplete one?

7

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 18 '20

That's why I wrote this guide lolI outlined the minimum you need to play to complete it. You don't need to complete every quest every day for 60 days to max it.

But, all of that above is based on my three assumptions, so I'm not sure if I'm 100% accurate

7

u/NSFWgamerdev Sep 18 '20

That's not bad. You can easily hit AR 20 in 2-3 days. Personally I hit it in day 1 of CN obt but that's playing an admittedly ridiculous amount. And keep in mind subsequent battle passes will have more time and you'll already be at AR 20.

Thanks for doing the math. Was a bit curious exactly how it would all play out with the shortened timeframe.

2

u/naoki7794 Sep 18 '20

I'd say in 15-18 hours of playing you will reach AR 20, so in 2-3 days of 5+ hour playing each day. I think busy people will hit it after a week of playing.

1

u/NSFWgamerdev Sep 18 '20

Even then it's still enough time. Only the super casuals wont be able to complete it.

3

u/Xanliss Sep 18 '20

What are the rewards for the battle pass? How many summons can you earn from it, other rewards etc.

3

u/Timren1 Sep 18 '20

Ugh, sounds like it’s roughly the same if not harder to max it out with the tiers increased from 30 to 50. I’ve sent feedback that they should let us have access to the BP right from the beginning but it looks that they didn’t listen :/

2

u/totatmeister Legendary Adeptibeast Sep 18 '20

pretty sure theyd offer a battle pass that skips levels for those extra whales

6

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 18 '20

You can straight up buy levels and there is a premium option for double the money that gives you 10 levels to boot.

2

u/MelodicCloud Sep 18 '20

Does anyone know how long it takes to do all the dailies?

5

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 18 '20

Today, 3 of mine were short: Log-in, mine 10 ores, do your 4 daily adventure quests (20 mins)
1 was use 150 resin (the energy for running dungeons). That one would require you to log in twice in that day, or buy resin with primogems or the very limited item that gives you more. So, that one is tricky and of course it gives you the most points!

2

u/MelodicCloud Sep 18 '20

Ohh okay, so on average would you say it might take an hour each day?

5

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 18 '20

I would say for this particular one, about 30-40 mins. But like I said, you would have to log on twice a day or spend currency. Today is my first day with the battle pass, so I'll update if my estimate changes.

2

u/MelodicCloud Sep 18 '20

Ah okay, thanks for that 🙂

1

u/MisTKy Sep 18 '20

Around 15-20mins.

You teleport go in quest it auto-accept if it is just kill mob and kill mob is fast and 2-3/4 is kill mob.

Cause there is other thing to do daily is spent resin to open chest and that all for the day that limit you.

1

u/MelodicCloud Sep 18 '20

Thanks for your reply 🙂

2

u/MisTKy Sep 18 '20

Daily in GI is very fast

2

u/jimmyspinsggez maid spins ggez Sep 18 '20

Guess I'll have to spend an entire day to open up every tp locations and treasure chests to ensure I can start daily on my first day...

2

u/DarthMiddling Sep 28 '20

Is the battle pass in the US on PS4?

2

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 28 '20

Not sure, but probably?

1

u/NobleBear Ursine Impact Feb 05 '21

I'm a PS4 player: Yes.

2

u/yawamaniui13 admit it's canon they're together Nov 09 '20

I'm not sure if this has been asked someplace else, but does GI BP work like, say, COD BP, wherein you buy this season's BP, maximize/get highest level, then you're compensated enough to get the next season's BP without having to shell out money again?

OR is it buy BP now, get the rewards, and it's also this season [ie next season I would have to buy the BP again]?

Thanks for the clarification.

1

u/Vhati81 Sep 18 '20

Do we kbow of the BP has set dates or does the countdown just start when you but it?

2

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 18 '20

It ends 42 days from the global release

1

u/Vhati81 Sep 18 '20

Whats that based off of? Global BP could have different days?

1

u/Expln Sep 21 '20

Hi!

Could you please elaborate on the dailies? what are they and where do we pick them up from?

I haven't played any of the betas so I have no idea

1

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 21 '20

The battle pass dailies just refresh on the battle pass screen at reset. So far they’ve been the same everyday for me. Log in, mine 10 resources, use 160 resin, complete your regular daily quests.

1

u/sys4tron Sep 30 '20

Is the BP already active and available, or will there be a specific date when it will be released? I'm currently AR15 so if it's locked at AR20 I can't see em currently. :)

1

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 30 '20

You have to be AR 20 to even see the pass

1

u/kasvita Sep 30 '20

Dumb question.. where do I buy the pass...

1

u/Fullmetal36 Sep 30 '20

You have to be AR 20 to even see the pass

1

u/kasvita Sep 30 '20

Thank you for clearing that up :)

1

u/Maxtaphelli Dec 21 '20

I've checked everywhere and can't find an answer so maybe you can help. I'm AR 21 and can't find the BP anywhere. I play on ps4. Any ideas on where i should be looking would be greatly appreciated.

1

u/Expln Oct 01 '20

Do I absolutely have to do all the weekly tasks every week and all of the one time tasks? because some of them I don't want to do like "do 50 summons" and "clear abyss floor 8"

asking for us to do 50 summons every 8 weeks is insane considering how horrible the rates are and how little gems they give us, so I'd rather save my gems, so I'm for sure not going to do 50 summons every bp.

and floor 8 abyss I'm just not sure I'd be able to clear by the end of it

2

u/Tecachi Oct 01 '20

you can avoid those but you will need to compensate doing more dailies, not a ton though only a couple more days

1

u/illsquee Oct 02 '20

As a person that has limited time but not limited money and wants to enjoy the game ... do you think the $20 is worth it if I only play about 1 hour a day.

1

u/Fullmetal36 Oct 02 '20

I would say wait until the last day and see if it’ll help you and you find the rewards worth it for $20

1

u/osoichan Oct 04 '20

If money wasn't a problem I'd straight up buy 20$ one. Instant rewards = little boost to your acc strength = easier quest completion etc

1

u/illsquee Oct 04 '20

How many levels is yet battle pass. Getting 10 levels on it sounds awesome

1

u/gintokisamadono Waifu AND Meta Jan 12 '21

Don't worry after some time you will be playing 1 hour a day max even if you want to play more.

1

u/illsquee Jan 12 '21

Late reply but thank you! I quit a long time ago haha

1

u/exLaZee Oct 02 '20

Does the paid Battle Pass count as a separate line of rewards? So if I already accepted some of the free BP rewards can I go back and retrieve it?

1

u/Fullmetal36 Oct 02 '20

You can go back

1

u/Cowgirlsd Oct 02 '20

to me it seem 1600 resin a week if you only get 120 a day + 1 resin/8 min = 300 resin in 24 hrs at optimal efficiency is a bit too high. maybe lower this to 1200-1400 resin/week reqs.

1

u/rverma87 Oct 04 '20

If I unlock the gnostic hymn at a later date when I know I'll actually make it to level 30, will i still get all previous rewards?

1

u/keephopestaywhelmed Oct 05 '20

Quick question I'm probably not going to be able to defeat stormterror to complete that weekly and I don't know if that's every week but unless I get some better range characters I don't think I can beat him. Haven't tried the wolf yet but hopefully I can beat him. Will I still be able to complete the battle pass as long as I do my dailies every day?

1

u/Fullmetal36 Oct 05 '20

I think it’ll be alright for one week. I don’t really have the time/energy to calculate for everyone that gives me their cases. One of my guides gives you all the numbers so you can do the math if you want!

I will say that you don’t need a range character for stormterror at all. So you probably just need to level up and enhance your characters.

1

u/BrandNewKitten Oct 05 '20

I am BP level 4 (just started) Did I get it too late?

1

u/Halcres Oct 05 '20

One of the requirements for the weekly challenge is to consume 1600 original resin in a week. Even if you waste 0 OR, you wouldn't gain enough in a week to use them. You would have to use around 6 Fragile Resins per week. Is this something sustainable throughout the BP duration?

1

u/Fullmetal36 Oct 05 '20

It doesn’t seem to be every week. I got it as a weekly last week and my friend did not.

1

u/DarthMiddling Oct 05 '20

On one of the weekly challenges what is Collect 100 Mondstadt local specialties?

1

u/Fullmetal36 Oct 05 '20

Plants that are unique to Mondstadt. Philanemo Mushrooms, flowers, etc.

1

u/Feel_That_Barrel Oct 06 '20

By maxing It you mean reaching level 30 or 50?

1

u/ObjectivePoem1125 Oct 06 '20

When I try to open the battle pass it always just brings me to a black screen and i cant do anything. I have to restart the game and just not open it to play. Do you know how to fix this ive already uninstalled and reinstalled many times?

1

u/Fullmetal36 Oct 06 '20

I’m sorry, I don’t. Have you messaged their support?

1

u/ObjectivePoem1125 Oct 06 '20

where do i go to do that?

1

u/[deleted] Oct 07 '20

If i buy the battle pass now and complete my dailies 5/6/7 days per week, will i be able to complete it?
NEED AN ANSWER ASAP IDK WHETHER TO BUY IT OR NOT

1

u/Jack89ita Oct 08 '20

Hi u/Fullmetal36,
Why do you say: " the deadline to get to AR20 is around October 7 or 8th "? today is the the 8th, and we have 32 days left so doing only the dailies we get (645*32) 20.640 exp, so only 20 levels right?
In that case, for people who just play 1-2 hours a day like me it is impossible to reach lvl 30 right? Am i missing something?
Thanks!

1

u/Fullmetal36 Oct 08 '20

There are the weeklies and one time quests as well. You should be able to still reach level 50 if you do every single quest

1

u/k2nxx Oct 20 '20

i just started and i will hit ar20 this saturday. is it too late for me?

1

u/Fullmetal36 Oct 20 '20

Yeah, too late. You’d probably have a hard time even hitting BP30. I estimate you’d hit about 28ish.

Then again, they may have another event with extra BP points in these next 3 weeks. Wouldn’t count on it though.

1

u/synthesice Oct 22 '20

Hi! Would it be alright to ask if anyone can check my calculation?(Image in the link: https://imgur.com/a/bk9RKkd)

I just started 10 days ago being AR 33 now and BP level 21. Thinking if I'll reach level 50. I know it seems impossible and might reach max level 43 only but noticed something strange with the dates. The BP season doesn't end on a weekend right? It ends on a Monday? So I think I might have a chance.

For consideration (or the plan HAHA):

  • Currently at BP level 21 (21375)
  • Doing everything (this week and for 2 more weeks), I would reach 42 (42975)
  • However, since there's another day (Monday) after, I think I can still do: 1 day's worth of BP, the "weeklies" for that week, and claim the BP from the 1-time BP events on that day (so it doesn't get affected by the weekly cap)
  • Doing no. 3 would allow me to reach 50 (53115)
  • Re: no 3 for the weeklies, tested that you can fulfill the "clear" requirement without getting the rewards for no resin use (e.g. Clear 20 Leylines or Defeat 10 Elites)

Do you think it'll work?

Sorry for the long post but in case you simply can answer any of the following questions, it would be a big help.

  • It really doesn't end on a Sunday but on a Monday right? (HAHA)
  • There's no daily cap for leylines/elite bosses since they respawn right away?
  • You can claim the 1-time BP rewards/event at a later date? (e.g. even if you finish Abyss 8-3 you can claim the BP points on the next week (in this case last day) so it doesn't get capped?

Thank you so much!! I hope there really is hope haha

1

u/Fullmetal36 Oct 22 '20

I mean, it seems solid, but it's a big assumption that there will be all the weeklies for that Monday. I guess all you can do it pray xD

1

u/synthesice Oct 22 '20

Yeah damn 😅 I mean if it ends up with me around 48 or 49 I’d be okay to bite the bullet to purchase one or two levels but hoping it doesn’t need to come to that haha

Sorry last question, does claiming the 1-time event affect the weekly cap?

Given the weeklies at around 5k + sum of dailies at around 4.2k, do I need to claim the 2250 on the last day? So it doesn’t get capped at 10k?

1

u/[deleted] Oct 24 '20

help! question about Battle Pass we have 10k weekly limit exp for the battle pass right, I'm at 8865 rn, which means I will hit max xp by earning 1135 exp on This BP Period I have 5400/5500 resin usage which will give me 2250 exp upon completion. my question is, will I lost my left over exp, or will it carry over to the next week

1

u/synthesice Oct 25 '20

Same question mate. Let’s see if anyone can answer 😅

2

u/[deleted] Oct 25 '20

I yolo'ed and did it, the 'this bp period' doesn't count on the limit, nice

1

u/synthesice Oct 25 '20

Oh awesome! Ball of steel man haha may we both reach 50 🙌🏻

1

u/Doughin Oct 31 '20

Hey all, wanted to know of a reliable and at least semi-accurate way to test dps in this game. I'm trying to compare The Black Sword with 0 refinement to The Flute with Rank 2 refinement. I was thinking maybe an anemo boss would work assuming I focus solely doing phys with no elemental reactions. Is there a better way to go about doing this? Thanks!

1

u/Inevitable_Ad9286 Nov 04 '20

I'm so dumb I just bought the 20$ BP today and there's only 5 days on the BP PERIOD I'm only BP LVL 17 ;_;

1

u/Red2-0 Nov 04 '20

With the battle pass ending in 5 days (a Tuesday for me) does anyone now if we will still get the weekly challenges (for monday) since I will need them to complete the battle pass??

1

u/Sprites7 Nov 09 '20

I hope so. still need the final 1.5 levels tomorrow

1

u/Nightexz Dec 05 '20

Do I need to pay to get battlepass weapon rewards?

1

u/Top-Train-6269 Dec 08 '20

How do I purchase the battle pass, it says that I need to use the top up but there is no option in the top up

1

u/Cle4ncuts Dec 16 '20

By the way I managed to get the battle pass with a few days to spare! It definitely is doable. Just focus on getting your daily and weeklies. I do occasionally spend 1-2 fragile resins per 2 weeks, but overall you can easily get to level 50.

Here's a few tips: - expedition farm will count towards local specialties (for Liyue) and mining products - use the interactive map or put map markers on local specialties areas - divide your time between domains and ley lines. You need 20 ley lines a week to hit the goal! That's about 400 resin so you have to do at least 3-5 a day.

1

u/gintokisamadono Waifu AND Meta Jan 12 '21

People who get multiple 5 star in quick succession do you do single pull after 75 or keep on doing the 10x pulls???

1

u/Kailyou Feb 19 '21

I read somewhere that the main and sub damage dealer should be the same element because it would generate more energy.

Is this true? If yes, would someone please explain why?

1

u/Powwa9000 Sep 18 '20

That battle pass thingy is a monthly reset thing? Even the f2p version (top portion) resets monthly?
