Genshin Impact players want to know how to use Original Resin.

Like with any new game, acclimating to a new system of resources can be difficult. Getting to know how each item and reusable resource works is the key to getting the most out of your gameplay experience. So, we’ve broken down everything players need to know about Original Resin in Genshin Impact.

How to Use Original Resin in Genshin Impact

Original Resin is, essentially, just a system of energy that forces players to pace themselves or take breaks from the game. It unlocks at Adventure Rank 8 and can later be part of the Adventure Rank ascension rewards. It is consumed when players perform certain actions such as entering dungeons or battling bosses.

A few uses for Original Resin are:

  • Entering a Domain
  • Battling a difficult boss
  • Uncovering a Ley Line Outcrop
  • Storing for later use

Original Resin will eventually restore on its own at a rate of one unit every eight minutes—regardless of whether or not the game is currently closed. It can also be restored using Fragile Resin items or Condensed Resin, which is stored by the player in a stack of 120.

Fortunately, players don’t need to worry about their Original Resin usage to continue playing Genshin Impact. It has no bearing on the story, so they can continue to play at their own pace.
