As you progress through the vast open-world of Genshin Impact, you’ll start to encounter increasingly brutal enemies that can dish out huge amounts of damage to your team. Follow this handy guide for the best recipes to restore your party’s HP.

Free-to-play RPG Genshin Impact has taken the world by storm since it was released on September 28, and in only a few weeks has accumulated over 17 million downloads. For a free-to-play gacha game it is remarkably substantial, and has people praising its stunning cast of characters and engaging gameplay.


While the biggest problem you have at the start of the game is those pesky Hilichurls, as you truck on through the main story, you’ll find yourself coming up against some ferocious beasts like Ruin Guards, and that means consequences for your HP.

There are some pretty scary foes to defeat throughout the course of the story.

You’ll need a good stock of HP boosting recipes to keep your party healthy, and we’ve collated some of the most useful recipes both for earlier and slightly later in the game to ensure you’re covered no matter who you’re battling.


How to find recipes and cook them:

Checking out merchants and restaurants at cities like Mondstadt is the best way to find brand new recipes where you can utilize your foragable goods. While some may be locked behind a certain Adventure Rank, we have a guide to help you raise your rank as fast as possible so you can get those helpful recipes quicker.

Early in the game you will meet a traveller near the entrance to Mondstadt. Talk to her and she will guide you through the process of using a cooking pot which is a very simple process.

Talk to Lynn and she will guide you through the cooking process.

To collect ingredients, look for spots that are sparkling around the world of Teyvat, and ensure you investigate to see what’s there. Often you will find vegetables and similar ingredients. You are also able to purchase certain ingredients yourself, and make them in the recipes section.

A new Flashback Squad Building Challenge for Axel Witsel is now available in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team (FUT) and we have all the info you need to complete the SBC quickly and as cheaply as possible.

SBCs a consistent way to upgrade your Ultimate Team squad in FIFA with limited-time rewards and cards, if you have the coins to complete them. With the 2021 season still in its early stages, they can also provide a very decent boost to your team.


This latest is a Flashback challenge celebrating the early stages of Witsel’s career as an attacking-minded midfielder with an 86 OVR card for the Borussia Dortmund and Belgium star.

If you want to get your hands on it, you’ll need to complete the accompanying SBC which is, fair warning, pretty pricey. However, if you are in the market for an upgrade at midfield, it is a decent option to consider.


Axel Witsel Flashback SBC stats

Stats for Axel Witsel’s Flashback SBC reward card.

Witsel’s stats are on point for an 86 overall rated; dribbling and shooting are his two highest stats at 86 each, but shooting isn’t too shabby either at 83.

As an “attacking-minded” midfielder, it makes sense Defending is his lowest stat at 74, but even that should be decent enough to hold together against similarly-ranked opponents. In reality, you could get away with using him as a box-to-box CM as well.

Axel Witsel Flashback SBC requirements, solutions, cost

There are three required challenges to complete if you want to grab Witsel’s Flashback card, definitely something to consider before you dive head-first into building all the different squads.



  • Number of players from Dortmund: Min 1

  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Top Form
