Genshin Impact makes headlines for its impressive free-to-play open-world, but things can start to get a little pricey if you’re not careful. Make sure you check out our best way to get and farm Mora guide to help keep your bank account healthy in Genshin. 

As you journey your way through the vibrant world of Teyvat, you’ll naturally come across a bounty of different items and resources. However, one of the most important virtual currencies is that of Mora.

Mora is the game’s main source of currency, used to purchase consumables, upgrade Artifacts, enhance weapons, and most importantly — increase the overall level of your characters. You can find lots of free-to-play weapons, but Mora is your ultimate resource to increase your damage output.


If you wish to maximize your party’s combat effectiveness and unleash their true potential, then you’ll need to spend a fair amount of Mora. These upgrades can get particularly costly in the late game, especially if you’re trying to manage multiple upgrades. However, our handy Genshin Impact Mora farming guide aims to make you one of the wealthiest adventurers in all of Teyvat.

How to get Mora in Genshin Impact

It’s relatively easy to get more Mora in Genshin Impact. We’ve broken down the best ways to obtain them below, and then we’ll go into more details on each method:


  • Treasure Chests.
  • Expeditions.
  • Exchange Anemo Sigils.
  • Kill high-level mobs.
  • Complete challenges in the Spiral Abyss.
  • Adventure Book chapters.
  • Open the Northland Bank chest.

Always be on the lookout for treasure chests

One of the best ways to get Mora in Genshin is to simply open treasure chests. There are currently four types of chests in Genshin Impact: Common, Exquisite, Precious, and Luxurious.

Each of these loot-filled boxes houses an assortment of goodies and can net you many a pretty penny. In fact, Genshin’s open-world is absolutely brimming with treasure chests, so be sure to open them all as you explore each area. 

Farm mora with Expeditions in Genshin

Genshin Impact Expeditions
Running Expeditions in the background can net you plenty of pocket money.

This one is arguably the easiest in terms of effort, but it will take a lot of time if you wish to net yourself a decent amount of Mora. If you head over to the Adventurer’s Guild in Mondstadt, you’ll be able to send characters out on Expeditions across Teyvat. It’s here where your characters can farm various resources in real-time:


Simply pick any non-party character that you don’t currently wish to use, then pick from either the 4h, 8h, 12h, 20h time slot. We suggest picking the 20h option as this will net you a total of 5000 Mora.

The only caveat with this method is it can take a lot of time, but it is Mora you can literally earn while you sleep. It’s not a bad investment when gaining gold for doing nothing. 

Exchange Anemo Sigils at the Souvenir shop

Spending Anemo Sigils is one way to gain Mora.

While you’re stopping off in Monstadt be sure to spend your Anemo Sigils at the Souvenir Shop. This gives you a great chance to stock up, and is an absolute bargain for those wanting to line their purse strings with a lot of Mora.


Anemo Sigils Mora
1 Anemo Sigils  1600 Mora, 60 in stock.
2 Anemo Sigils  1600 Mora, infinite stock.

To make matters even better, you’ll naturally gain a lot of these Anemo Sigils as you upgrade the Statue of the Seven and open chests in Mondstadt. This method rewards keen treasure hunters and can make you incredibly wealthy in the process. 

How to get Mora without resin in Genshin Impact

Hunting Genshin Impact’s monsters is a great way to accumulate a bounty of resources.

Hunting the various enemies that walk the rolling hills of Teyvat may not be the most lucrative way to earn Mora, but when you combine it with the other methods outlined above, it soon adds up to a nice sizable sum. It also means that you don’t need any resin, either, saving you from further time spent farming.


Besides, if you have a decent team comp that has some of Genshin Impact’s strongest characters, you’ll be able to wipe out the Hilichurl hordes in no time. This method also gives you an excuse to test out your team’s elemental combos. 

YouTuber F2P Diluc also indicated different areas within the game that can be farmed daily to increase your Mora by killing high-level mobs, such as:

  • Southwest of Stormterror’s Lair
  • Mt. Aozang
  • Just North of Qingyun Peak
  • West of the river in Nantianmen
  • South of Tianqui Valley’s river
  • Entombed City Outskirts
  • On the islands in the middle of Sal Terrae

Complete challenges in the Spiral Abyss

The Spiral Abyss not only puts your skills to the test, it also rewards you with a lot of gold.

This method is only available to those who have reached Adventure Rank 20, but it was one of the most fun ways to earn Mora. After all, who doesn’t want to beat up waves of bad guys and get rewarded in the process?

To progress through the Spiral Abyss, you need to beat a total of three levels on each floor. There are eight floors total and each level grants you a bounty of Mora. Try to always beat the third level of each floor to net yourself a whopping 25000 Mora.

Complete Adventure Book chapters

Genshin Impact Adventure Book
You’ll naturally complete Genshin Impact’s Adventure Book chapters as you progress through the game.

This method of farming Mora in Genshin one can be fairly easy to miss considering it’s tucked away in the in-game menus, but remember to always claim your chapter rewards as and when you complete them. The Adventure Book can be accessed from the Start menu.

Simply head on over to this section to find out what challenges you need to complete in order to progress onto the next chapter. Not only will you be rewarded with Adventure Rank experience and various items, but you’ll also get a decent amount of Mora as well. 

Open the Northland Bank treasure chest

This treasure chest hides a bounty of Mora within it.

If the idea of snagging yourself a jaw-dropping 200,000 Mora has you salivating at all the potential upgrades, then you’ll want to head straight to Liyue Harbor (most Southern point of the map) and enter the Northland Bank.

The Northland Bank is located directly above the Liyue Souvenir Shop. Once you’ve entered the bank, simply head up the stairs and open the chest to claim your bountiful prize.
