How to Obtain
Characters can primarily be obtained by using Primogems to purchase Intertwined Fates or Acquaint Fates to perform Wishes (Gacha pulls). The starter characters: Amber, Kaeya, and Lisa, can be obtained early on in the main storyline (Archon Quests). Some characters may also be purchased from the monthly Paimon's Bargains shop in exchange for Masterless Starglitter.
Characters can gain experience primarily by completing quests and using Character EXP Materials, also getting a very small amount of experience for defeating monsters. See Character Experience for the EXP table.
Characters can be ascended to their next "Phase" once they reach their current max level up to 6 times (Lv. 90).
To ascend a character, go to the character screen and click on the Ascend button at the bottom-right of your screen. A box will appear showing which Character Ascension Materials, Local Specialties, and Common Ascension Materials are needed and the Mora cost required to ascend the character. If there is an item you do not have, click on it to see various ways to obtain it. See each character's page for the materials needed for each ascension.
Upon reaching the 1st and 3rd Phase/ascension, the character unlocks a new passive talent. The 3rd passive talent, if the character has one, is already unlocked at Phase 0.
|Phase||Max Level||Required Adventure Rank||Unlocks|
|1st||40||15||1st Passive Talent|
|2nd||50||25||Combat Talent Leveling up to Lv.2|
|3rd||60||30||Combat Talent Leveling up to Lv.4|
|4th||70||35||2nd Passive Talent|
Combat Talent Leveling up to Lv.6
|5th||80||40||Combat Talent Leveling up to Lv.8|
|6th||90||50||Combat Talent Leveling up to Lv.10?|
Each character has 6 constellations, which are similar to their passives and increase the effectiveness or capabilities of the character. In order to unlock each constellation of a character (aside from the Traveler), a player must use a Stella Fortuna for that specific character. Players can obtain a character's Stella Fortuna by pulling a duplicate of the character in Wishes (Gacha) or buying the character from Paimon's Bargains.
