Follow these tips and tricks if you’re having a hard time clearing the Ascension Quest:

  • The recommended party level for clearing Ascension Quest 1 is Level 35. A good mix of Pyro, Cryo, Anemo, and Hydro characters is essential in defeating the enemies in the domain. 
  • Since co-op is disabled in Ascension Quests and you will not be able to ask for your friends’ help, rely on your food buffs instead. Cook plenty of dishes beforehand to boost your attack and defense stats. You can also bring in potions if you don’t have a character in your party who can heal. 
  • Bringing a character with shields will go a long way. 
  • Upgrade your artifacts, weapons, and talents before entering the domain.
