These are key reasons to stop investing in your character in Genshin Impact

Each update will add a new character and it might also introduce a new artifact set. These things will easily impact the meta and change the game on its head. Not to forget, the inclusion of any new region will also introduce a buff to a specific element. As much as you liked the character, it is never going to stand the test of time, as the game continues to evolve.

Addition of new nation; The title is at the cusp of venturing into its third nation Inazuma, which will also add electro buff. This will easily change the game, and it will demand you to forgo your current DPS carry or support units. Naturally, Inazuma will also add a roster of characters, and they will definitely overshadow older units.

Meta changes: Several factors can trigger a shift in the meta. New builds, artifact sets, new character combos, and so on can throw your favorite unit in the trash can. If the game changes, you should change with it and stop investing your unit, if it feels out of meta.

 New powerful unit: This can also be a prominent reason, which can cause your unit to become obsolete. If a new more powerful variant of the same element rolls out, then it is time to abandon your character. Start making pulls for the superior 5-star unit, if you wish to remain relevant.

These critical changes can definitely affect your character’s position in the ever-evolving world of Teyvat. You will only get so many resources, which is why it makes sense to know when it is time to stop building a particular character.
