Though getting to Adventure Rank 16 does seem rather time-consuming at the beginning of your journey, there are many ways to reach this level fast and efficiently. In this guide, I will go through six of the best ways in which you can gain XP fast in Genshin Impact, which should lead you to Adventure Rank 16, unlocking the co-op feature.

1. Grind story missions and side quests
2. Redeem Achievements and Mail
Genshin Impact has a mail and achievement system in the menu, which allows you to redeem gifts and rewards. When you first start, you will receive some welcome mail containing items and gifts which will help you on your journey’s beginning. Furthermore, by completing quests and doing certain tasks, Genshin Impact will also reward you with achievement rewards, allowing you to claim early XP for something even as small as blowing seeds off a Dandelion with your Anemo ability.
3. Ley Line Outcrops
Ley line outcrops are great for leveling up your Adventure Rank, but also for leveling up your characters, allowing you to progress through missions more efficiently. Ley line outcrops are found throughout the map, manifesting as either blue or yellow mist, which you must interact with. Defeat the enemies that pop up and then claim your reward from the plant that grows with your resin; usually, these can give you around 100 Adventure Rank XP, which is great for such a small task. I would suggest doing around 3-6 of these a day. You can do more, though it takes valuable resources to refill your resin, so I wouldn’t recommend doing so.
4. Explore the Map
Once again, this may seem obvious to some, but Genshin Impact’s map is one of the densest and populated I have ever played in. Everywhere you look, there are things to be done, which of course, grant you Adventure Rank. So, next time you’re on your way to a mission, a Statue of Seven, or anything of interest, instead of teleporting, make your way there on foot and complete anything you see, whether it be defeating enemies for a chest or even collecting Anemoculus and Geoculus.
5. Make offerings to the Statues of Seven
Throughout the game, you will find many floating blue collectibles known as Anemoculus, and later on in the journey, you will find orange collectibles known as Geoculus. These collectibles are important for levelling up, as players are able to offer them to the Statues of Seven dotted around the map and receive Adventure Rank XP and a stamina bar increase. For beginners, I would suggest using the interactive map online and spending some time collecting as many Anemoculus as you can.
6. Daily Commissions and the Adventurers’ Handbook
Upon reaching Adventure Rank 10, you will receive the Adventurers’ Handbook. This item is essential for levelling up as you receive Adventure Rank XP for completing many of the tasks inside. On the experience tab, there are many easy tasks to get you fast XP in the early game; for example, cooking 5 dishes will give you 100 XP. Furthermore, once you reach Adventure Rank 12, the Adventure Guild will start giving you 4 daily commissions within the Handbook. These are great for levelling up and should be the first missions you complete when you log in. Commissions are usually short missions that gift you Mora, Primogems, and, most importantly, Adventure Rank XP. For how quick these can be, they give you a ton of XP, so get them done!
