The Enhancement Progression Calculator works better on mobile

The HoYoLAB mobile app will let you view characters that you already own, including their current level and the materials that they still need. This will save you the hassle of logging in to the game and manually inputting data on a third-party website.

Players can sync their in-game character information on HoYoLAB to use this feature. Note that this option is only available on the mobile app and not on the desktop version of the Enhancement Progression Calculator.

The HoYoLAB app is available on the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store.

Using the Genshin Impact calculator prepares you for upcoming character reruns

If you know in your heart that you’ll certainly get Zhongli on his next character banner rerun, then you should already start farming enhancement materials ahead of his release.

The Genshin Impact calculator will provide you with the total amount of materials you need to level up the Geo character completely. This way, you can immediately use Zhongli in combat — that is, if the gacha gods will let you have him.

Unfortunately, for existing Zhongli owners who are aiming to unlock his constellations, the calculator does not compute the effect of the character constellation on the leveling of talent and skill levels. The maximum talent level in this function is level 10.

Expect data delays

The data displayed on the Enhancement Progression Calculator might be subject to an hour-long delay, as indicated on the feature’s page.

This is similar to the Real-Time Notes feature on the HoYoLAB app’s Genshin Impact Battle Chronicle tool, which informs players of their Resin count, daily commissions completed, expedition times, and other time-sensitive data.
