This question must have come to your mind when you first encounter this situation in Genshin Impact. Well, here’s the answer to clear all doubts.
What happens when you Ascend Ranks in Genshin Impact?
The first time Ascending Ranks is introduced is when you reach Adventure Rank Level 20. From then onwards you have to complete ‘Adventure Rank Ascension Quests’ each time you reach Adventure Rank 25, 30, 35… till 55. When you complete the quest, your world level will increase by 1 and the maximum world level you can reach is 8. When the world level increases, the enemy’s level will also increase. Your archon quest level also depends on your rank and world level. Increasing the world level is important in a way, otherwise, you will be extremely overpowered in your world and it won’t be challenging enough for you to enjoy. Increasing world quest will increase the level and amount of loots you can get. Like you can get more 5 start artifacts, more adventure Exp etc. It will also increase the expedition limit too (maximum up to 5), which means you can send 5 characters on the expedition at a time.
Does ‘not’ Ascending Ranks effects the game?
The first thing that happens is the game won’t let your rank up until and unless you complete the Ascension Quest. Secondly, you can’t upgrade your character and weapons after a certain level is reached. As you might know, upgrading a character’s talents level also depends on Character’s level. Hence these are all connected. But does that affects the game? Not really. Because you can still play and continue other quests and domain challenges like you normally do. And not being able to upgrade characters and weapons doesn’t change the game’s level either as the enemy’s powers are still on par with yours.
But still ascending ranks is important. Ascending ranks will increase the chance of getting better loots and a higher level of artifacts. 5-star artifacts aren’t important in the early stages but at some point, you have to start working on them too. It is still your decision if you want to ascend ranks or not, you can always hold on to that. All the accumulated Exp gets added to your rank. If you have accumulated enough Exp for the next ranks, then right after you complete the quest, you will automatically rank up.
Normally ascending to world level 5 is comparatively pretty easy (up to AR 45). But it’s better to take time before you decide to go to level 6 world. It will be easier for you to complete the Archon quests before you proceed to the next world level. E.g. Inazuma is a pretty hard place to survive in and the Archon Quest level also depends on your world level. You should take time with Genshin Impact, going too fast will just simply create more problems for you. It’s best to work on your characters then go for the next ranks so you can get better loots from weekly bosses and things like 5-star artifacts.
