Furina can walk on water indefinitely, thanks to her elemental skill, making her an ideal unit for exploration not only in Fontaine but all the other nations as well. Teaming up with her is Lyney, whose passive talent displays Fontaine resources on the mini-map. When it comes to underwater exploration, Furina has an additional passive talent that decreases cooldown of underwater abilities by 30%, this will make underwater combat much more fast-paced. Aiding her is Neuvillette who decreases underwater sprint speed for your own party members by 15%. And lastly, Yelan whose elemental skill grants her super speed on land and does not consume stamina, you can substitute her with other characters that have similar skills like Sayu or Lynette.

Tighnari’s passive talent Encyclopedic Knowledge displays the location of nearby resources unique to Sumeru on the mini-map. Quite a useful talent if you are trying to farm Nilotpala Lotus and other Sumeru materials quickly. Since Tighnari is a standard banner character, there are chances that most F2P players also have him. Nahida will make harvesting from distance easier, especially when farming Sumeru speciality, Kalpalata Lotus which grows on cliff sides. However, if you don’t have Nahida, you can use Kirara instead, she climbs cliffs quite fast at very low stamina cost with her elemental skill. Kazuha for additional vertical mobility and Sayu for fast mobility on land.

Lynette’s elemental skill allows her to sprint forward very fast while consuming no stamina and players can get her for free once they reach AR 25. You can use Traveller’s Geo construct to gain height and use it as a platform to recover stamina while climbing cliffs, yes you can attach geo construct on cliff sides.

Kazuha decreases sprinting stamina consumption of own party members by 20% and is one of the best units for vertical movement in the game. His elemental skill Chihayaburu launches him in the air which player can use to climb cliffs, mountains, and other tall structures. This skill can also be used mid-air, allowing player to glide longer distances and cover more area. Next, we have Gorou, whose passive talent Seeker of Shinies will display the location of nearby resources unique to Inazuma on the mini-map. Holding Kirara’s elemental skill Meow-teor Kick will transform her into an express delivery box, while in this state, her movement speed is drastically increased and she consumes no stamina. This skill is not only great for traversing fast on land but also good for scaling cliffs fast. Nahida’s utility passive allows her elemental skill to collect harvestable items within the range of her attack.
