Genshin Impact Battle Pass (2.3) Explained & Should You Buy It?

Here's what you should know about the Genshin Impact Battle Pass Shadowed Snowfall

December 30, 2021

Here’s what you need to know about the Battle Pass in Genshin Impact and whether you should buy or not Shadowed Snowfall, the one ending with Version 2.3.

The Battle Pass in Genshin Impact is one of the subscription-like bonuses players can buy with real money. It’s the second most cost-efficient purchase you can make after the Blessing of the Welkin Moon.

The Battle Pass is time-limited and resets with each Genshin Version. Seeing we’re nearing the release of Version 2.4, many players are wondering if they should buy the 2.3 Battle Pass, ending in a few hours.

Genshin Impact Battle Pass explained

By completing Daily, Weekly, and Special missions, players earn Experience. This Experience levels up the Battle Pass and nets you rewards. You can go up to Level 50 in each Version. The base version of the Battle Pass is free.

Gnostic Hymn

The Gnostic Hymn ($10) is the first paid version of the Battle Pass, giving you many additional rewards as you clear the missions. Most notably, once you reach Level 30, you can pick a powerful 4-Star weapon.

Gnostic Chorus

The Gnostic Chorus ($20, $12 if you purchased the Gnostic Hymn first) is the whale version. You get everything in the Gnostic Hymn, plus 5 Fragile Resin, an exclusive Furnishing for Housing, and an exclusive name card. Moreover, your Battle Pass level will automatically increase by 10.

Should you get the the Gnostic Hymn or the Gnostic Chorus?

The Gnostic Chorus’ Furnishing and Namecard are exclusive items. However, they’re cosmetics. Stuff whales will get to brag. Unless you’re really into that and can afford it, the Gnostic Chorus isn’t worth the price at all. And the 5 Fragile Resins aren’t really worth it.

As such, I recommend picking the Gnostic Hymn. Only if you can afford it. At the end of the day, don’t forget Genshin is just a game. And to be honest as someone who’s been playing regularly since launch, while I still regularly buy the Gnostic Hymn, I’m considering stopping as it’s not like I need the materials anymore. Every character I like is at least 81/9/9/9 fully geared by now. And when I like a new character enough to pull them, I just take my time & farm their materials myself.

So what do I buy if I want to quit being F2P?

Long story short, if you want to buy something in Genshin Impact and quit being an F2P player. Get the Blessing of the Welkin Moon. If you already have it and can afford more. Then get the Gnostic Hymn. But I don’t recommend the Gnostic Chorus.
