Current party level is lower than recommended is a message you can get in Genshin Impact. A number of people have been complaining about receiving this message when trying to play a dungeon in co-op, even though all their characters are above the required level. Since it’s not about the characters’ levels, everyone is left to wonder what exactly is the problem. If you’re experiencing the same issue, this guide will explain why you’re getting party level is lower than recommended Genshin Impact error message.
Can’t play co-op – Current party level is lower than recommended
Reports from players getting this message have mentioned several dungeons throwing it up, but one thing they all had in common is that everyone was over the recommended level. For instance, if a dungeon has a recommended level of 20, everyone was around 40. So it’s obviously not about levels.
Another thing they all had in common was that none of the dungeons were domains. Only domains are available for co-op – the other dungeons are strictly singleplayer. When you click on the dungeon, you’ll see a list of instances to choose from. If they have “domain” in their name – like Domain of Forgery or Domain of Blessing – this means you can play them with friends. If they don’t, you’ll have to solo them. Thus, if it’s not a domain you can’t play with friends and you’ll get the message – Current party level is lower than recommended. You can’t do anything about that.
A couple of things to keep in mind when playing co-op: first of all, the loot is instanced. This means you’re the only one who can see your drops, and nobody can snatch them from under your nose if you’re not fast enough. Secondly, the number and strength of the enemies you face inside will scale with the number of players, so it won’t be any easier than playing it alone, but you’ll have more options.
