Food items are an important part of Genshin Impact. It not only looks delicious, but it provides you with buffs and all-important healing. Even if you have a healer character in your party, it is a good idea to travel prepared and supplement their healing with some food. Healing effects from food in Genshin Impact come in two separate forms (technically three, but more on that later). The first type will heal your character for a percentage of their HP and extra HP on top of that. That’s very useful if you need a momentary burst of healing. The second type provides a percent of HP in burst healing, while also giving the character a heal-over-time effect. This is very effective for sustainability during the fight, providing health regeneration in the long run. The third type is food used primarily to resurrect fallen characters, but while falling into the category of restoration food, it’s not used strictly for healing. In this guide, we will present you with the 10 best foods for healing in Genshin Impact.
