Best ways to spend Waveplate (WP) early in Wuthering Waves

Beginners follow a different farming logic.

Like most gacha games, Wuthering Waves employs an energy system that uses a replenishing currency called Waveplate. It can be used to farm for Resonator and weapon EXP Potions, rare Echoes, Shell Credits, and upgrade materials. Here's the best way to manage your Waveplates in the early game.

How to use Waveplates Wuthering Waves

Every important resource in Wuthering Waves can be farmed from various Training Grounds, Tacet Fields, and other instanced-based dungeons that cost Waveplates to claim rewards. Every Waveplate you spend will also reward you with Union EXP, which, in turn, levels up your SOL3 Phase (equivalent to Genshin Impact's World Level).

You'll naturally replenish one Waveplate every six minutes, but you can only hold a maximum of 240 Waveplates at a time. If you're impatient, you can also use one Crystal Solvent or 60 Astrite to replenish 60 Waveplates instantly. Since Astrites are better reserved for Convene pulls, your best bet is to wait for Waveplates to replenish over time.

It's generally considered a waste to leave your Waveplate count at 240 as the idle time could be used to replenish more. As a new player, don't be afraid of using your Waveplates generously to speed up progression!

How to spend Waveplates as a beginner in Wuthering Waves

In the early game, your primary goal is to progress as quickly as possible by increasing your SOL3 Phase. Doing so increases the difficulty of the game but also unlocks high-rarity rewards. So instead of hitting the bosses in the Tacet Fields, which you probably can't defeat without some Resonator upgrades, focus your first few days farming the Simulation Training Grounds in Jinzhou.

The Simulation Training Grounds allow you to farm Resonance Potions (for Resonator EXP), Energy Cores (for weapon EXP), and Shell Credits. The EXP materials will be very useful in upgrading your core team. In the early game, every level counts, and you'll gain more value from farming these materials versus going to the Tacet Fields, which will only drop low-tier Echoes at this point.

Even as you spend all your Waveplates for EXP materials, don't waste them on random Resonators. Be careful about who you build and save some for upcoming banners you might be interested in pulling for. Once your characters can no longer ascend without boss materials, start going to Tacet Fields to farm only for materials you need.
