Hello travelers,

I know you have many question about cbt3. I've seen some questions under my posts and other posts as well. Sorry, I'm addicted to the game and don't reply them. Please check the following frequently asked questions to see if they are in it.


1. Why does the CN cbt3 start early?

This beta will include ps4 in global, but no in CN, so the CN beta releases early. We're behind since we have ps4 holding us back.


2. What's the date of global cbt3?

The beta will come in July, as announced in community, no specific date yet. We can guess.

registration end beta access given out test date

CN May 29 June 9 June 11

global June 19 June 29(?) July 1(?)


3. Can we play coop cross platform?

The answer is yes, and I also heard they will add cross server in the future.


4. Is it possible to switch devices to play GI beta?

Once you have logged in the game, your account will be locked to your device. They do allow you to play it in other devices, but limited in 1 for each platform (PC, iOS and Android). At least this's what they do in the CN beta. To be safe, stick with 1 device.


5. How will we know whether we are invited to participate in the beta?

If you are invited, you will receive an invitation via email. The download link also attach to the email. Please check your emails regularly.


6. How does loot work in coop?

Loot isn't that useless though the material you can get is limited. You can collect renewable resource in other world, like ores making strong weapon. However, you can't get the material that doesn't refresh. I even ask my friend to open the chest in his world to see if I can get the treasure, but it doesn't work in that way. Moreover, you can get monster drops even if they are not defeated by you. For dungeons and world bosses, you also can get rewards as long as you have enough Original Resin (energy).


7. How does geo react with other elements?




If you have more questions, feel free to ask.

Ah.

A little addition to Q5.

Some people may have the mail ended up in "Spam" section or hidden away.

So be sure to check that place also. If not, the last thing you can try is to use the search bar on the mailbox to find.

The search bar doesn't really work, even if you type in "genshin" or "closed beta". The only thing that works for me is "Paimon". Just go through your guys' spam... It honestly makes me sad when people get the game invite but don't play it. It basically steals a slot and rips the chance for others to play... Please look through your spam.

Any idea how the geo shields work exactly?

Do they just absorb damage?

Or reduce damage by a %?

Or is it just a 1 hit thing?

And does the shiled itself have elemental properties(fire one burning grass for example)?

Well, applying an element to an opponent before applying geo makes enemies drop
elemental shards that will reduce damage by a percent for that element.

By the way, I recall seeing that the exp open world stuff only gives 75 AR exp now, does that amount scale based on world level or is dungeon AR exp just lower now?

Yes, as the world level increases, both AR exp and rewards increase. My world level currently is 2 and I get 125 AR exp if my memory isn't wrong.

Alright cool, I believe it may just be scaled like the dungeons in CBT2 where the first level was 75, the second was 125, and the third was 175 and henceforth.

Guess sharing treasure loot is out of the window so the only loot we can shared is farmable resources, and dungeons loot.
