You probably just suck at the game, nona, because Xinyan is literally an objectively bad character. I have her at C5 and even then she's still awful because of her dumbass split scaling (you need to build DEF for her shield but also her burst scales with ATK so you also need to build ATK if you want her burst to do any dmg, the one advantage is that you can ignore crit rate and just focus on crit dmg) but also how her kit gives her useless passives that improve her DPS potential. Her options are: >pyro physical DPS
lmao most of the enemies have stupid high physical defense so superconduct is necessary so any physical DPS needs to be at least electro or cryo>support for a physical DPS
both Razor and Eula have much better characters for a team than her (Diona, Fishl, Beidou, Kaeya, even Bennett).

>>158240>superconduct is necessary so any physical DPS needs to be at least electro or cryo
Nope. Actually, Xinyan makes any phys DMG DPS useful/viable, no matter the Vision.
Superconduct reduces the physical resistance of all enemies in the AoE by 40% for 12 seconds. (copy pasted from the wiki)
Meanwhile, Xinyan's shield increases phys DMG by 15% (the shield lasts 12 seconds, just like superconduct's effects) and at C4 her Elemental Skill also decreases opponent's Physical RES by 15% for 12s.
So, yeah, she works with any phys DMG DPS, it doesn't have to be Cryo or Electro kek.

>xinyan is shit!

The only true way to appreciate xinyan is to main her despite her flaws

btw, I can't wait to see her next patch!! she's actually going to appear for the first time in an event! She doesn't have an Archon quest of her own, so I'm excited to see her talking and interacting with us outside of the teapot, love my girl.

>>158243>Xinyan makes any phys DMG DPS useful/viable, no matter the Vision
lmao viable for what?? for abyss it sure fucking isn't because even Eula is struggling in remaining viable in abyss despite having a gigantic nuke as a burst, and Eula's best teams do not have Xinyan on it (usually its Eula, Diona, Fishl and Beidou because Eula needs electro not only for superconduct but also to provide her energy, which Xinyan isn't able to do)>Meanwhile, Xinyan's shield increases phys DMG by 15% (the shield lasts 12 seconds, just like superconduct's effects) and at C4 her Elemental Skill also decreases opponent's Physical RES by 15% for 12s.
Except for the fact that, you know, her skill has an 18 second cooldown and regenerates 4 energy, which isn't enough to fill her 60 energy burst. That means that Xinyan's shield buff uptime sucks while Superconduct has 100% uptime because you can just keep proccing it. So, actually the 40% constant physical res debuff from superconduct is miles better.
On top of that, Razor, the only other character in the game that is a physical DPS, does not need any more physical dmg%, just giving him a goblet and his asc stats are enough for him, any more and it's diminishing returns. Buffing his attack with Bennet and proccing superconduct with Kaeya/Diona is a much better support choice.>she works with any phys DMG DPS, it doesn't have to be Cryo or Electro kek
there are no phys dmg dps in the game that aren't cryo or electro other than xinyan wtf sort of garbage team are you running?
just because you can do something, it doesnt make it good, also who tf builds physical venti and kazuha?? probably the same kind of retard who would put XQ on a team with Razor wtf are you even trying to do with that? an electrocharged team that has literally negative EM??? might as well just heal your enemies and hope for them to kill themselves >is not very antifujo of you.

>>158256>lmao viable for what??>there are no phys dmg dps in the game that aren't cryo or electro other than xinyan wtf sort of garbage team are you running?
I think you misunderstood me. What I was trying to say, nonita, is that she doesn't need to apply electro+cryo to be useful, unlike the average superconduct team. It's true that right now there aren't that many phys DMG DPS charas , but you saying phys DMG DPS characters can only be those elements is incorrect because Xinyan exists.>Except for the fact that, you know, her skill has an 18 second cooldown and regenerates 4 energy, which isn't enough to fill her 60 energy burst
your energy recharge substat, sister??
>Buffing his attack with Bennet and proccing superconduct with Kaeya/Diona is a much better support choice.>two healers
Bennet, Xinyan (pyro synergy boosts your ATK%, didn't you say Razor shouldn't focus that much on Phys DMG? you know, my Razor has an ATK% build, so…), a sub DPS of your choice and Razor
there, I fixed it>>158259>neither am I the anon you originally thought I was
oh man, she's trying to play that card.
I do wonder if you're the same metafag that keeps spilling bullshit about whatevs kit without any kind of explanation and calls it a day. I'm still waiting for that anon (don't know if it was you kek) to explain to me why did she think Aloy was a 3* Chongyun lol. Beats me.
Diona by herself has enough off field cryo application for Razor to maintain an 100% superconduct uptime, a Xingqiu in that team is going to be wasted mess up reactions because the enemies will constantly have a hydro aura to them >>158264> is that she doesn't need to apply electro+cryo to be useful, unlike the average superconduct team
she's a waste of a slot, literally the only thing she does for your team is something just the reaction superconduct is able to do by itself, dumbass, that's without accounting the actual utility the other characters will bring like healing with diona, crit rate with rosaria, on top of actually being able to do dmg>but you saying phys DMG DPS characters can only be those elements is incorrect because Xinyan exists.
lmao so she's not shit because there's maybe an hypothetical future physical DPS character that she could be used as a good support for? are you fr?>your energy recharge substat, sister??
LMAO so now on top of def, atk and crit dmg you ALSO need to build energy recharge on her. all that fucking effort for a subpar buff you could literally replace by just using the right elements
Also, that team fucking sucks, thanks for confirming you suck at the game because you're going to be overloading constantly and having to spend all your time running around trying to fucking hit something. If your Razor is in any shape or form doing any dmg at all (lmao let me guess 9k autos?) is because you can slap bennet on anything and make it passable
>>158265>antialoy anon suddenly appears after days of total silence>coincidentally it happens when metafag is also around>the post length and time between posts match>"that was me not the other anon"
>comparing a sub DPS with a DPS in terms of utility>DPS>utility
nona what did you smoke today, I want some
>her E is less useful>aloy is going to suck ass as a dps
oook, now I understand how did you get to that conclusion
man some people cant read I guess>>158266>she's a waste of a slot, literally the only thing she does for your team is something just the reaction superconduct is able to do by itself
yep, and to get that reaction you also need to occupy a slot>healing with diona
why? why do you need so much healing nona? that's two healers in the team, you could have Xinyan dealing more damage with her burst>lmao so she's not shit because there's maybe an hypothetical future physical DPS character that she could be used as a good support for?
I mean, as I said, she can also work with the other phys DMG DPS, but in the future she'll probably the star of many teams because she doesn't need an elemental reaction to be useful>LMAO so now on top of def, atk and crit dmg you ALSO need to build energy recharge on her.
why would you raise so much stats on Xinyan? just choose between a more ATK focused build or a DEF bulky one, Energy Recharge as substat for her burst>having to spend all your time running around trying to fucking hit something
didn't know superconduct sucked enemies in. just dash nona (dash dash)! anyways, bigger enemies don't fly around, they get stunned which is really nice.
Enough metafagging for today, let's just agree to disagree and call it a day. No hard feelings nona.

>>158266>Diona by herself has enough off field cryo application for Razor to maintain an 100% superconduct uptime
Again, it does not matter because superconduct is so shitty that replacing xingqiu and his high damaging 100% uptime ult with a character that brings absolutely dick to the table in terms of damage will result in lower damage overall for razor teams. not everything is about muh reactions. his best teams include xingqiu.
>mess up reactions because the enemies will constantly have a hydro aura to them
You do know transformative reactions don't behave the same way as amplifying ones yes?
Ugh I will agree with you that xinyan is fugly and useless and with other anon that this entire discussion is retarded and should end immediately, so the last word on this is all yours
Noelle's hangouts made me like her less too. She's incredibly stupid, freaking out over distant exams and not realising when people are clearly lying/misleading her. Still sat through them all for the primos.
I love Chongyun's design but also think his personality is incredibly dull and boring and I'm not a fujo so I don't care about his ship with Xingqiu.
Diona's was fine, nothing special. Never liked Barbara and her hangout didn't change that. Actually I think the only good one was Bennett's.

uh well. i'm bi with a lesbian girlfriend, does that count? and fyi she's a lot more forgiving than me when it comes to the waifubait female characters because she already enjoys cute uwu moeblob types, but i'm more preferential to mature ladies like lisa, ningguang, and beidou so i'm getting my primos ready to pull for raiden

So, nonas, there has been a few rumors passed out by supposed reliable people on NGA about what the rest of the banners will look like for the rest of the year and the agreed order is something like:
Raiden > Kokomi > Yae > Ganyu (with Tohma) > Hu Tao > Albedo (with Gorou)
So I really don't think we should expect a new male 5* character to come this year.

why are you shilling your waifus so hard who gives a shit(ban evading )
on the topic of unreliable nga leaks, here are some potential thoma kit details
>hold E and Q both grant shield>tap E is like bennett or rosaria>nice CD times>80 cost Q>Q provides off field pyro application>damage sucks>base shield is weak but has a refresh mechanic that makes it manageable>hp scaling ascension passive like zhongli's>C1: using elemental skill gives resistance to interruption, shield strength increased by 15%>C2: when character is affected by pyro-shield, +15% ER and 10 attack speed. Works off field>C4: everytime shield is refreshed when burst is active, creates a pyro symbol that reduces pyro res by 3%>C6: sword, bow, polearm, catalyst characters under pyro shield can gain a buff every 3 sec. Buff adds 35% attack speed, last for 3 sec (so busted it makes this leak sound fake)
sometimes it feels like posters are being negative for the sake of contrarianism when in fact it just makes them look like huge seething autists. not like i'm much better though since i'm also posting here to begin with lmao>>158323

>>158337>Thoma, a significant character in the story, a 4* in a Ganyu rerun banner
Not even Mihoyo would be so dumb to give him this treatment, why would've they advertised him just yesterday if he wasn't going to appear in a banner soon? Also according to other leaks there are currently no plans to add Yae in the summoning pool.>>158338
Because she was a boring and bland as bland can be goody two shoes and even the NPCs were more interesting than her. It's a chronic problem with the female characters in this game, no conflict or flaws at all besides "she's shy how cute" or "she blabbers how cute". I don't think most people hate her, they just view her as wasted potential.

Late but I'm also a lesbian, and the only girl I like so far is Beidou, because her voice actress in english is Allegra Clark. I can't unhear Dorothea and Shamir from Fire Emblem whenever Beidou talks. I really liked those characters so it transfers over to Beidou kek
I think Kokomi is really pretty and I like her animations, but idk if I'll roll for her. I also really like Lumine but didn't want to stare up her dress the whole game. I regret not picking Lumine and at the same time I kind of like that she's the badass queen of darkness or whatever in my game.
My fav characters are Kaeya and Venti so far.
I don't think I'm that anon, it seems to be a lot of Beidou fans here.
But good taste anon, I have her as my main.>>158365
I love Beidou eng voice, her voice made me like her even more.
I’m not a lesbian but it’s okay to like the female characters of the game, like, it’s your primogems, there’s no need to do some “I’m not like other anons” nor make it 8deep16you.
I like a bunch of the girls, like Nigguang, I love her voice, also Xinyan, Yoimiya, Sucrose, Lumine, Lisa and even more, coomers will coom even if the characters are wearing frumpy pants and hoodies, so I think we should just like the characters we like and enjoy them, if they’re too shallow, write some fanfiction and make them more interesting or something like that.

My first double 5 star pull! Qiqi guaranteed me Kokomi and I also finally have my Mona.
Unfortunately, Sara feels very bad to play. I have no idea what she does. Raiden feels very fun though. Her attacks are gorgeous.
Beidou and electro mc. CN players are super pissed about how shitty her and sara are.
I'm extremely disappointed but not surprised at how the first female archon turned out. Has anyone played her story quest yet? Spoiler alert: it's pure waifubait. It's so bad that even the majority of her simps are upset about it.
The juxtaposition between her personal quest and Zhongli and Venti's first personal quests is crazy, like it's genuinely upsetting that the genshin team puts little to no effort into their female characters. Pick a random generic anime personality, show some bob and vagene and call it a day every single time.

The entire thing was ghetto as hell, everything about the plot was so confusing, and it upsets me that they make you do these boring ass mini quests to waste time. I loved watatsumi island’s design, but it feels like it could have been saved for fontaine since it’s going to be the water nation. It’s laughable how trash Sara is, what the hell is her special attack? It’s lazy because they were trying to get Raiden out as fast as possible to line up their business wallets. Thoma and Scaramouche were cute as always and the way they did Signora is dirty but eventually from the outcry of their CN players her death will be “forgotten” or they’ll put a deus ex machina like Kazuha countering Raiden’s attack using his dead friend’s vision
. Everything about it was so pretentious and clumsy it was really entertaining. Also good luck and rip to the casual players trying to get past the Raiden rematch, it’ll probably take me a million times to win. The new chat emojis are adorable! All of this shit when into a boring messy story that actually put me to sleep when they could have put that energy into a get eat anniversary patch.
I love Thoma's animations, it looks like he's dancing or smth. Really dynamic.
His second idle animation is so fucking good, I want to smooch the person who animated that.
I love him and I already have all his ascension materials (except for that blue mushroom, I guess it's from the new island). Can't wait!!
I love his animation so muc, im gonna pull for him no matter what!>>158456
Yeah im also dissapointed with how Baal her character turned out. I also dont like her normal attack animation but since she is suppossed to be a support(?) i guess that doesnt matter to much.>>158462
Those emotes are so cute!
I'm currently having the same problem with Sara. I'm trying to figure her skills out, but maybe it's me since I suck at bows and aiming in general.
It's a shame since she's so cute and the only reason I pulled in Baal's banner.
Is Baal bad? I felt she was really fun to use in the trial.
I haven't done her quest yet, but from what I've seen so far, Baal's character looks like a badly done Signora.
Inazuma feels so rushed outside of the pretty overworld… Scared for muh husbandos, hopefully they've had a little more time to cook. >>158481
Really bad. Like worse than Zhongli before his buffs. Her not having good synergy with beidou, the only decent electro, is pretty damning. As a character, she stops acting all villainous in her story quest. It's a bunch of misunderstood tsundere bs and uwu fluff as "Ei."

It's true, it just only calculated half of a day sales and she was released somewhat late there because it was together with the patch, I think.
I'm just annoyed because her story quest sucked as did Inazuma part 2 but Mhyo will keep making it because well, it's selling here anyway.

Apparently we're getting another Childe banner and Tohma is in that banner.
Mihoyo really wants everyone to have Childe
I don't understand how so many people are whaling for her, she seems to be underwhelming as a playable character and her story is boring as fuck. Does she needs full 6 constellations to work or what the hell are these numbers?

yESSSS YOU WILL NOT EVADE ME THIS TIME RUSSIAN WHORE
>>158601> there are only 1 or 2 likeable female characters in a line-up of almost 30
How is that hard to believe? They keep cranking out female characters on a manufacturing line just to make moids buy more primos instead of veering off to competing games, it's not like there's a ton of time or space to give them a fully developed personality. Male characters in the game are far, far more rare, of course they get more chances to become a well-rounded character since they relatively get more screen time than most female characters, especially because Mihoyo is terrified of giving their female characters interesting flaws or drama that could accidentally make male players fall out of love.
I really have no idea how waifufags get their feelings so hurt over people being mad over the ridiculous gender ratio of the character roster, like fuck don't worry man you'll keep getting 20 waifus for every 1,5 husbandos, I guarantee it. You've already won, just like in every other animu game. You have no business being so pouty over anons demanding more husbando pandering.

>>158602>Are they fucking kidding me, look I love my boy but I just want new 5* male characters.
A lot of people do but we're getting reruns now so it's Hutao and Childe apparently. I guess they don't want people to have Ganyu since she's so fucking broken and they're not done with the next part of the Dragonspine questline with Albedo so we can't have him either.
No one on here is arguing that the gender balance is justified, or that MHY isn’t pandering to scrote fans. The problem is that some female fans pin their internalized misogyny on scrote fans, MHY, or whatever other scapegoat they can find.
You would have to reach really hard to say that Xingqiu, Chongyun, Razor, and Bennet are written to be more interesting than literally every female character - and those are just the obvious examples. The dark and broody males (Diluc, Xiao) are their own trope, just like the goody two-shoes girls.
I absolutely agree with this. It's fine to not like a female character, but some anons here are way too aggressive towards them and it weirds me out.
Most of the characters in this game are one dimensional, both men and women, it's a gacha game. Sayu is just a sleepy girl, Bennett is just an unlucky boy. But them being simple doesn't mean they're dislikable.

This has to be the prettiest area in the game. I'm really impressed with Inazuma!
My favourite place in Genshin was Dragonspine for a long time, but Serai and Watatsumi Island blew me away. The OST is just getting better and better too. Can't wait until they release the Inazuma soundtrack.

I'm still confused about who grants visions and this line confused me even more.
incoming spergery but this is such a cope. the males you listed objectively ARE written to be more interesting than the female characters, if only because we get more content with them defining what makes them interesting specifically through voicelines/hang outs/quests/whatever.
for example, take albedo and mona - both interested in fate, what lies 'beyond', alchemy and stars and blah blah blah. they share a lot in common, even in canon (klee's voiceline about mona talks about how mona and albedo spend time together discussing things). albedo is characterised as a well-rounded, interesting character. though his alchemy does define him to a certain extent, he has more to him than that - his relationship with klee and alice, his enjoyment of sweet food, his interest in art. mona, on the other hand, is constantly reduced to 'haha poor' and 'haha starving'. most of her voicelines relate back to this somehow. her birthday content related to her being hungry and poor, as did her in-game mail. her interpersonal relationships with other characters are nigh non-existent because the voicelines that aren't about being poor are about hydromancy or whatever.
this is just one example - if you look at jean and ganyu, their character is nothing more than 'workaholic'. noelle and barbara are the cute ones, rosaria and lisa (and likely yae miko) are sexy, so on and so forth. there are very few female characters who defy this (hu tao comes to mind, but nobody else).
compare this to characters like razor, who can barely string a sentence together in the English dub, yet still managed to get in on the klee event and have a more varied backstory. minimising it to 'uwu intewnawised misogyny' is just embarrassing and lazy. the scrotes behind this game just cannot fucking write female characters, point blank, and pretending that it's actually anti-feminist to point that out makes you sound like the raging twitfag you are

Hoping this character hasn't been scrapped. I love her design.

Your bias just clearly doesn't let you pay attention to the female characters enough. The story doesn't even pay that much attention to Mona being poor, during the 1.1 event it's literally only mentioned in passage. Sure it's a recurrent joke but that's literally just it.
Mona's a skilled magician and maybe way too proud. She could have enough money to survive but she's too much of an autist to corrupt hydromancy and use it for anything that isn't pure. She saved our asses when we saw Scaramouche the second time which shows she is both skilled and has good judgement skills on power, but also that she puts maybe too much thought on how strong her opponent will be (seen as how she was surprised freaking Klee was Alice's apprentice).
She's also a part of the Hexenzirkel, which is this mysterious witch circle that has extremely big names in it (her own master, Alice, Signora was in it for a bit).
We have no idea where she comes from, she could most likely be from Fontaine, and her vision is only Mondstadt shaped because it was her master who gave it to her, but we know that her birthname wasn't Mona Magistus, that's an alias that she chose for herself which implies she has some sort of past she wants to leave behind.
She surprisingly gets along well with Klee and Albedo but Fishl seems to put her off because of the way she speaks.
There's tons of interesting shit about Mona, sure the game has some waifubait but Mona's quest was not it at all, it's actually one of the best character quests in the game so idk what you're talking about

Dendro Archon's gender may have been actually retconned after all. This is the first time I've truly been tempted to drop the game. I hope this is still some sort of error, as the voice over still has yet to be changed and the original cn is ambiguous
Sauce for the image: https://www.reddit.com/r/Genshin_Lore/comments/ph177v/things_you_may_have_missed_dendro_archon_gender/
So it's real, it's in the patch notes that they corrected a translation error using he/him pronouns and the Dendro archon is actually a woman. So like >>158662
said get ready for a moe fairy loli waifu archon and her cleavage friends. >>158676
This. If we're not getting a new 5-star male announce in the next 2 months I'm selling my fucking account and quitting.
Her release has been delayed because Mihoyo is too busy altering her model to show cleavage and thighs. >>158686
this tbh all these nlog nonnies here need to mind their internalized misogyny, if you don't love and accept 90% of the characters being one note anime waifus in revealing clothing in a game that's supposed to be unisex then you must hate women right???
>>158687>comes into a genshin thread on a majority female website>gets surprised when most of the users prefer husbandos and repeatedly call you a retard for your one-man shit waifu positivity brigade
If you only want to shit up the thread with sperging about your shit waifus just go to reddit.
At the very least learn how to reply to multiple anons in one post instead of spamming. Transbian itt istg.

ayrt, interesting point. I didn't see it like that until your last sentence and I can see where you're all coming from because nowadays a lot of gamers are female. That's kinda depressing that we have to accept what moids like>>158702

Goddamn if you're so unhappy with the game just delete it and move on already, it's not that hard. Quit this "I-I'm totally gonna do it guys!! if Mihoyo doesn't give me another boy to jizz myself over I'm dropping Genshin!!!!" bait sperging.

Let's talk about dendro. I know it's still probably far, far away but I'm wondering if we'll have some kind of poison reaction due to Baizhu's snake. I really like it when characters have some kind of creature they can summon, like Fischl with Oz, Xiangling with Guoba etc, so I hope the snake is involved in his kit and that he is a DPS.
Yaoyao seems to just be another healer but I hope she isn't. She is adorable. Maybe her kit could trap enemies for a bit in thorns or something?
Dendro with hydro could be… swamp?? No idea what that would do though. I would say slowing down enemy speed but we already have that with cryo. We already know what burning does and I think that's a good reaction. Dendro with cryo and electro I have no ideas for. It's a shame that they probably won't fix electro before releasing dendro. I assume The Chasm will release before Sumeru, so the next 'big' thing will have to be dendro, surely.

That would be interesting! Guoba is apparently a God himself, not an archon but some sort of God. I LOVE when games do things like this and I love Guoba. I'm excited for Moonchase purely because of him.

At this point I'm pulling with the punches and making due with what we get. Am I disappointed about all the mis-marketing? yes. but, I'm I also still somewhat interested in Genshin's future? A definite yes.
but for those who wish to depart from this game will have my blessings and it sucks there's barely any female-aimed gachas here in the west. Maybe we might get a game similar to Genshin which lacks most of the issues this game had. Who knows, good ripoffs do exist.
>>158713>Dendro with hydro could be… swamp??
Maybe dendro will have a reaction with geo? And im super excited to get Baizhu even if it will probably take a long time.
Anon do you just never play gacha games or are you just baiting. Azur lane, Honkai impact, punishing gray raven are an example of games that have like 80% female characters and those are just a few i have named. All these games focus on creating lewd anime girls to sell to scrotes so im sure you will like it.>>158701
This so much anon, I don't expect to have like a full game of male characters, i just want to have it more balanced even ratio. >>158705

I think geo and anemo could have interesting reactions with dendro, but since they have no other reactions I doubt it.
Anemo and dendro could be like a leaf blower, lol.

first point makes me think that… only a 10% of us are actually playing the game and talking about it, the rest are trolls kek>>158720>Why are people not allowed to complain and vent about genshin?
The problem is every post on this thread is a always THE SAME FUCKING COMPLAIN AND DOOMPOST. Not only that, but the second some anon shows some kind of positive feedback or someone says they enjoy the game, you all try to shame those anons by calling them "waifufags", "fujoshits", or "transbians". The positive posts are ignored, it's like everybody here is hate-playing the game. Just look at the Team Fortress thread, girl, I want what they have.
I understand and support being critical of the game, but it's super fucking annoying that all of the posts are whining "I'm quitting the game if I DON'T GET A HUSBANDO NOW!!" and when we get one you still complain or bitch about whatever, or even right down ignore it. I'm keking at that post saying "I PAID FOR THIS GAME I DEMAND FEMALE GAZE!!" like she's funding fucking Mihoyo. You're not, nona, your money is just a teardrop in the ocean of moid-money Genshin gets every second. Don't waste your money on these games, is not worth it.

The only upcoming male electro character 100% gives me debuffer vibes… if his debuff is good then it won't even matter that he's electro and I couldn't care less about the fate of an element with only one other male who deals physical damage. Would be based if they went the route of putting minimal effort into waifu kits since they know they'll sell anyways as we've seen with raiden but keep the boy meta streak going to give neckbeards an incentive to pull.>>158728

After I get Kokomi I think I'm going to focus on weapon banners instead with my future wishes. I like getting new characters but I hate building them. Artifact grinding causes me great pain. I think I'd rather focus on making a few characters amazing than roll for new ones. I know weapon banners are a scam for F2P but sometimes I feel overwhelmed by new characters.
>>158747>I like getting new characters but I hate building them.
same lol, grinding is literally painful, specially the artifacts.
I wish you could change substats or main stats with some kind of material, like dream solvent or smth.
Good luck farming specters for Kokomi, nona, they drop very few mats even at WL 8 and they are hard to kill if you don't have Kazuha or Ganyu, rip.
Im a huge autist so i will respond to much every point you made.
>The fact that not enough people on this thread talked about Thoma the new 4* character
Thoma has been leaked for a very long time so this is why i believe that not many anons replied to the post where they showed of his attacks. You can look at the previous thread and you will see that plenty of anons have discussed him, we even there talked about his new face change ect. You have to keep in mind that Thoma has been leaked months before and he still isnt even released yet.
>Anons saying that Xinyan is ugly
They're all wrong, she is cute and the fact that she uses a guitar during her ult is really cool. Her kit is bad to other characters tho because of the split scaling, but i feel like that shouldnt hold anyone back for wanting to play her. I do feel bad now that i didnt defend her but you can see a few other anons do say they find her cute so i think its stupid to generalise like that.
She has had her banner months ago? No one has mentioned her so how do you expect anons to talk about her, you can look back at the first thread if you really want to and you can see that most anons like her. But since she hasnt been important to the story since her release you cant really expect that people will keep talking about her even two threads later.
>Anons say that Aloy is ugly
Theyre kinda right because her head is really large but i still think she's cute and she's free so i cant complain. Also the way you're writing this make it seems like there were no postive comments about aloy but that is not true, anons have made comments about how they think she's cute and like her character design.
>another anon makes a point about how the male characters are based on tropes as well
While there are some male characters that rely on tropes i feel like most of them are better devoleped. And it especially stand out because there are so much more female characters compared to male. I'm not saying there are no well written female characters but i even feel like if you just compare character trailers. The female characters trailers are really lame compared to the male ones (especially eula was very bad imo).
>anons complain about eng dub and claim jp dub is better
I think we can all agree that the anon who keep fighting about english dub is the most annoying one. Like she has come multiple times in the thread just to sperg out about how the jp dub is so much superior even if you only mention the english dub once.
>The positive posts are ignored
But it seems to me like you're doing the same thing, you keep talking like no one likes aloy or xinyan here even tho there have been posts here or on the previous thread that they do like them. I agree with you that some anons are very negative and loud but i think you yourself are focussing on the negative posts far to much, the best thing is to just ignore these posts if it makes you this angry.
Sorry for the huge autistic response kek.>>158742
Some people are saying itto will be a geo claymore, no news about ayato or if he will be even playable i believe?>>158747
I'm F2P and since the weapon banner has changed i have decided to also focus more on weapons and less on getting more characters. I have so many chracters i still want to build like you said the grinding is annoying. I don't feel like the weapon banner is such a scam now since you're eventually guaranteed to get the weapon you want. Goodluck on getting Kokomi anon! I'm hoping we will get another childe rerun after because i want to get his c1.

Not even a fujo but I really think the Dendro Archon being a woman is almost unnacceptable. I never expected a balanced ratio but I was pretty happy with 3 to 4, but 2 to 5 seems ridiculous. Archons are THE major characters from each region which means we'll NEVER get another male one.
It also adds to a bad feeling in general because the Inazuma story sucked so much, I guess. Like, it makes no sense we haven't met Ayato yet. He's the head of one of the tri-commissions and his little sister involved his clan in a civil war, his retainer almost had his vision confiscated and he's doing what???? Literally nothing???? What could ever be more important than that??
I dont speak CN but I've read that all mentions towards the Dendro Archon were gender neutral, so either the EN translation defaulted to male or they had knowledge about it being a man and they changed.
Considering it's a change that comes together with tons of other little retcons, like the thing about Zhongli telling us Baal died 500 years ago (lmao such a fucking bullshit retcon, how can someone bem SO incompetent as to change that instead of writing around it? I'm still pissed), it's more likely that they changed it
I'd like to add that nobody here called Xinyan ugly (just that her kit is bad), people were ranting about reddit moids calling her ugly because she doesn't look like a generic waifu. And multiple anons were saying they liked Kokomi for example. That anon is just strawmanning at record speeds and probably salty that someone insulted her waifu. >>158753
Not to be a full on doomposter but I called this ages ago, they bait female players in with male banners in the beginning and then just devolve into another waifufagging gacha after the first year is over. It happens all the time with new gacha games.

I didn’t like how at the end of the archon quest Yae just info dumps you with the juicy deets that could have been fleshed out.
She did, but Zhongli never told us that, that is my point, they changed it because at the end of 1.1 Zhongli specifically told us that Baal is the current electro archon.
They could at least pretend Zhongli was lying to us to protect Beelzebulb because they were friends, but they made it seem like he literally told us when he didnt.
We literally know that all of the archons we dont have yet are women, anon. >there will be more male characters in the future
lmao you keep saying this but will it? because currently there's negative news about it, the only one we're getting is the one we have known about for ages
Also, it's also about just how fucking weird it is to have 5 female archons and 2 male ones. It makes things less diverse and less interesting in general dumbass.
Ayart and the way you worded your post is not aggresive at all. As other anon said, thank you, that's really nice.
I actually agree with almost everything you said, except for a few points
>you can see a few other anons do say they find her cute so i think its stupid to generalise like that
I know there were some anons who said she was cute, I was just pointing out the hipocrisy of those who said they want female characters that aren't sexualized, when Aloy got mostly shit responses. I remember even one anon said she didn't want her and wished she could exchange her for starsglitter kek. That type of anon never gets shamed or called out, yet when some anon says they like Kokomi, someone has to jump and screech about it (see >>158156
>>158170). The one screeching is never in the wrong and nobody tells them to shut up.
I don't like Albedo or Kaeya and I don't see the appeal of Kaeluc. I also didn't like Ayaka's Archon quest and dislike Sucrose. Yet, do you see me getting worked up when anons mention liking them? No, if someone wants to sperg about those characters/ships, good for them. If some anons in this thread like Ayaka's quest, that's good, those who don't shouldn't start sperging about "YOU'RE JUST A WAIFUFAG" or publishing a fucking manifesto about how everyone that liked Ayaka is probably just a moid, damn. That's the only thing I ask.
Anyways, you're good anon, if all those infighters were like you I wouldn't even mind some doomposting kek.
I'll stop sperging about this.
Yep.>Pyro archon Murata is confirmed female >Hydro archon is confirmed female>Cryo archon a.k.a the Tsaritsa is confirmed female>Now Dendro archon Kusanali is confirmed female
I was ready to accept 3 to 4 ratio but 2 and 5 with both male archons already being revealed is embarrassing and a clear signal of what direction the game is going to take when it comes to the character gender ratio. Even if you're not a husbandofag you can't deny how one-dimensional and ultimately scrote-pandering games that are only waifus are. If you think the current female characters are fine then just wait a few years and you get sexualized, half-naked lolis and monster titty mommies popping up in the gacha.
There are tons of female dominated games out there, go play fucking Honkai Impact if you think coomerbait is empowering for you.
The fact is that Genshin was advertised as somewhat balanced and appealing to a general audience, including it's female players, which is something that only happens once in a blue moon with games in general, specially in a project as high budget as this so its obvious the part of the playerbase that is getting left in the dust is getting pissed, fuck off.
Also, these character were literally tailor made for scrotes or do you think Raiden takes out the sword from her boobs just because?

Zhongli's was the first I heard>Unsolicited! And all the more valuable for it :)
really caught me off gaurd. what did he mean by that?
Oh, I saw it by accident actually while exploring and it made my day lmao ofc that would be his reaction, the little shit.

Every character got one with the update! Venti thanks Barbatos for the treasure chest and then realizes he thanks himself. It’s silly but small things like that makes me enjoy the game. I think some characters even got 2 voicelines
Yeah i also remember that anon who said she didnt want her which is stupid because she's free and no one is gonna force her to play her. You're right about anons like that not being called out because i always choose to ignore people like that since i believe that giving them attention will make them sperg even more. But those people themselfs will often attack other anons when they do see them posting postive things about a character or something else they disagree with.
The example you choose with kokomi, i understand your frustration. While the comment might not be as aggressive as example the anti aloy anon, it's still an unnecessary comment.
I want to also thank you for responding so nicely to me and I truely hope we will eventually have less infighting in this thread! >>158784
The saddest part is that we currently have 40 palyable character and only 12 are male (13 if you have choose aether to play). That's a big gap and i think it will grow. As example inazuma has given us 5 female characters and we will get 2 more. We have gotten only 1 male inazuma character and will get 2 more. So 7 new female characters and 3 new male characters.>>158797
I did notice it and i was really surprised because i never read the notes about the updates kek. But it's super cute and i hope they will add more voicelines like that, i hope that you will eventually get venti anon!>>158769>I like her dumb hat too.
I also really like her design and i really hope they won't change and sexualise it. I was really surprised to hear that she was a geo polarm tho.

This is the character everyone thinks she will be a look a like, sort of like Raiden.
They will probably age her up because there isn't a model to fit her in the game at least but it will be disappointing

In her Herrscher form (basically 'God' form) the dumb twin tails go away. I think she'll either look like Bronya or Cocolia, who is Bronya's adoptive mother.
I really, really want her to look like that but we all know she'll have her booba and vagena out like the rest of the female characters and she'll have another misunderstood tsundere backstory to her. Screenshot this post for 2024.>>158847
They really do. And I find it really lazy that they're rehashing the designs for Genshin.
Aside from design similarities, Venti's personality is nothing like Wendy's, and Ei's is nothing like Mei's and so on.
I don't think Zhongli looks similar to anyone from Honkai. Some say Fu Hua but I don't see it.
Story-wise, it's pretty f2p friendly outside the cards.
Although I agree on the same face, some NPCs are way more diverse and hotter, I don't know why the main characters look so bland in comparison.

>a game being marketed as gender neutral
I'm genuinely curious as to why some anons are saying this. Maybe is the same anon, but I've seen some posts complaining about this "marketing". Did I miss some kind of advertisement or ad campaign where they specifically said they were going to pander to girls? When I got into the game (I've been playing since release) I already knew this game was going to have a lot of female characters with sexualized outfits. I actually thought it was going to be worse (picrel is what i expected, i got into the game thinking it was some kind of moid mmorpg), and was pleasantly surprised when characters like Zhongli and Childe were released. I see this game as another Granblue/Arknights.
So, what is this "gender-neutral marketing" you are all talking about?
>inb4 the "marketing" is just their friend asking them to play the game or some twitter user making a thread about Genshin
In the beginning the gender ratio of the characters was much more balanced to the point is was almost half and half, date events didn't exist and even after they did it was for both male and female characters, you could choose the gender of the protagonist, the story in general had no hints of ever being anything else than this generic JRPG story. That spells gender neutral to me, unless you believe that only men are allowed to like games with a focus on combat.
If it would've been moidshit from the beginning it would've had only a self-insert male protagonist, vast majority of female characters all throwing themselves at him, other male characters being non playable etc. According to surveys the gender distribution of the playerbase is around 50% male and 50% female and the initial massive popularity was boosted by this fact alone. You have to understand that games that are waifu only never make it big and stay in the niche corner. Companies need that 50% female playerbase to stay afloat and alienating them means a gigantic loss of revenue, no matter how much moids throw money at a new waifu because they'll get distracted by a sparkly new game sooner or later. They're a fickle audience because there are so many options for them while women are known to be much more loyal to the characters they find enjoyable.
>>158898>gender ratio of the characters was much more balanced to the point is was almost half and half>you could choose the gender of the protagonist
So, as I thought, the marketing didn't exist and it was only the wrong assumptions you made when first playing the game. Nona, I understand your frustration with the game, but if you paid attention you could have seen how different Diluc's and Mona's outfits were, how there was only one male 5* in the permanent pool, Xingqiu's outfit vs Barbara's, yada-yada-yada.
As I said, this is a gacha game like Arknights or Granblue. There'll be husbandos, but waifus will always outnumber them. It is was it is, ofc it's shitty, but the game was never marketed as anything else than a gacha anime game.>companies need that 50% female playerbase to stay afloat and alienating them means a gigantic loss of revenue
You're forgetting those female players are also pulling for 5* female characters, while retarded scrotes are so adamant on not being seen as "gay" that they refuse to pull on husbando banners.>unless you believe that only men are allowed to like games with a focus on combat
I don't believe that, but society and developers do, which is shitty because most of female gamers already enjoy a hobby that is commonly (and mistakenly) associated with men, so game companies thinking shit like "girls don't like action games" is stupid. But what can I do.
Why are you so hung up on this marketing thing? Was the game supposed to specifically say "A game for girls and boys alike"? Something like Animal Crossing is a gender neutral franchise enjoyed by both genders and you don't see them branding it all over their marketing, it's just that the game has no defining elements one way or another, i.e. it's not a waifu dating sim or an otome game. The same goes for many JRPGs like Final Fantasy. One could argue that video games in general are a "boy thing" but that has been proven false time and time again.
>There'll be husbandos, but waifus will always outnumber them.
Nobody denies this. The problem is that the ratio and focus is in danger of steadily slanting from "waifus outnumbering" to being "only waifus". Of course developers will put out more because men prefer quantity over quality and feel insecure if they're not constantly surrounded by a harem but are people just supposed to stop complaining about it? The games relying only on moid money are flash in the pan and fade into obscurity sooner or later because a new franchise will always take over. Genshin already dropped on the list of worldwide most profitable mobile games after a dry spell for new male characters so if anything, waifufags who want to keep the game alive should expect Mihoyo to keep half of the userbase interested and funding the game. Sure, female players roll for the 5-star female characters too but if they'll often be burned out and disappointed for prolonged times of generic waifus and no husbandos or non-sexualized female characters.
Funny you should mention it because Granblue has always been very husbandopandering compared to its competitors which is probably why it's still afloat after so many years. It's probably the only game that has released swimsuit versions of the male characters. Arknights on the other hand has never been a big thing globally, it continuously ranks with very modest numbers. It has a bigger profit margin than Granblue but on the other hand Granblue doesn't have as high production values and it's not as popular in China (the undeniably largest market for mobile games) as Arknights. Fate Grand Order started bleeding money immediately once they alienated their female audience because like mentioned, the male whale churn is big and the are not a sustainable source of money, especially because they start reeing the second a waifu isn't a broken overpowered DPS (see: Yoimiya drama). But once they released a new husbando for the new story chapter in August the sales jumped almost 500% in one month.
>game companies thinking shit like "girls don't like action games" is stupid. But what can I do.
At least stop enforcing it yourself, that's like the bare minimum.

Nonas, do u like this fighting event? I think it's kinda boring, but I do enjoy playing with the 5* characters I don't have.
Nta but how is this bait? She's right. Just because it's not literally spelt out, it doesn't mean there has been no marketing. The game does feel more gender-neutral because of the mc choice, the available starter characters, the good looking male characters (compare this game to something like LoL, where all the males are either ugly, buff, covered in armor or ugly monsters while the females all look like models), the somewhat interesting Zelda-like story and the female characters not being that sexualised compared to other franchises (take some of the first ones that we see in the game: Jean, Barbara, Amber or Noelle all have something going on design-wise and they're not all just in bikinis with some pieces of armor here and there and huge swords, like coomers love). Clearly they were thinking and pandering to their female players, at least in the first year, because scrotes don't really give a shit about Aether being cute, Kaeya's cleavage, Zhongli's over-detailed ass, Venti being a bishounen, Razor and Bennett also being cute, and the male characters overall having complex backstories and relationships with other characters (though I do think they've always pandered to the coomers just a little more, but let's just say that it was acceptable). Many people saw this as just a weeb Zelda with a good male-female character ratio that also made the effort to pander to both males and females in a "balanced" way, I myself started to play it because I was intrigued by the fact that the game had both hot waifus and good-looking husbandos that weren't useless and ugly side characters but actually had plot relevance. Honestly I'm willing to wait and see what they're going to do after this, maybe it's just a phase where they feel like making a lot of female characters and the other regions are going to be good like Liyue and Mondstadt were. Maybe Inazuma's just a bit shitty.

I can’t believe we’re still arguing about this for 2 whole days. I think we all have heard each perspective now and should just agree to disagree. Can we keep it a bit more lighthearted now and stop infighting?
I like husbandos so here, have a Thoma! Feel free to post cute pics of your Genshin husbandos anons, I like to save some for my collection.
I do like it, however I wish that the trial characters would have changed by now. Some of the trial characters seem poorly built too, I wish we could see their artifacts. The Ningguang there feels weak but I know
she can do better.
I wonder why Mihoyo seems to build trial characters horribly sometimes, like Yoimiya having a full noblesse set in her story quest, why? It fits her terribly.

What do u mean, Yae is not coming in 2.2, Genshin didn't post anything about her.
All characters have the noblesse obligue set in their archon quests, I have no idea why.
But they do choose unusual combinations sometimes, Xiangling has a weird weapon in that character trial thing where you can play with the banner characters.>>158946
Dizzy? What do u mean? Is it because he almost teleports through air or because he jumps really high? I've heard users complaining about getting dizzy when they played non-stop, maybe you should rest a bit nona, take a breather.

not really. adding to this that yoimiya was the 3rd lowest selling character banner to date, only outselling keqing and klee's rerun and I don't think kokomi will do much better.
>>158975>Husbandos selling like crazy
Waifufags BTFO'd, also Venti mains rule the earth
Still don't understand why Kazuha didn't sell better than Albedo. He's become a permanent addition to my combat party and is an amazing buff to elemental reactions while Albedo's meta is confusing to use and bordering on worthless for most players. Is it because he was outhyped by all the Inazuma leaks that people just ignored him?
using that word incorrectly btw but a free 20-22k neutral aoe damage literally every 2 seconds, 125 em buff with 90% uptime, and some added tankiness from crystal shields isn't useless on any team besides freeze because geo procs shatter. him and zhongli are one of the most cracked character combos.
>confusing to use
all you do is press E and fuck off like fischl? he's even the single cheapest unit to build in the game (def% artifacts, doesn't care about set bonuses besides ap 2 piece, BiS is a 3 star weapon) idk if you've just never used him before or what but hes extremely simple

(Sperg post) Gosh the hopeless romantic in me loves tragic characters like Rosalyne who have romance as part of their tragedy so much. I don't even like her design. It's a shame that most of her lore is hidden behind artifact and weapon descriptions, but I suppose for ADHDs who just want to zoom through the story and don't care about lore it's a good thing?
I always wish the story and dialogue was longer, but when I watch my normie casual friends play they complain it's too long. I wonder if that's part of the reason why the story this time seemed shorter. I don't understand how some world quests are written better than the MAIN story. Surely there must be different writing teams?
Anyway, I know there's many Venti fans here, but after learning more about her I'm surprised all she did was kick him.
Venti's constant dormancy screwed Mondstadt somewhat since he wasn't around for most of(?) the Cataclysm when fuckers like Durin were showing up, it's also the reason Rosalyne hates him because he wasn't around to possibly save her lover, thus she had to turn herself into the Crimson Witch to fight the monsters off, constantly be in pain whilst burning herself and everything around her for centuries until the Tsaritsa found her and gave her the Cryo delusion which stopped her burning. It's likely her face is burnt underneath her mask. I hope she is with her lover in the afterlife. In English when she dies at the end of her boss fight, her saying "I never asked for redemption, never" tugs on my heartstrings.
you are very sweet nonni. I will pop in every once and then and spread some more dotty love then, kek>>159055
okay i'm relieved to hear that, i was starting to worry that scaramouche fans were a little crazy but i'm glad it's not like that. He is a super cool character especially with that new reveal Yae gave us and i hope he becomes even more relevant from now on
I'm Venti fan, but I also love Signora's character and I think her dead was a fucking joke. She had so much potential, and they decided to kill her so suddenly like she was a mere NPC. I don't like her design either, but I liked her being unapologetically violent and bad. In my opinion, Raiden should have been the one dying at the end of this chapter, and Signora should have had more spotlight.>I suppose for ADHDs who just want to zoom through the story and don't care about lore it's a good thing
They should add some kind of "skip" option for these people.>In English when she dies at the end of her boss fight, her saying "I never asked for redemption, never" tugs on my heartstrings.
We don't deserve her.
Nice pic btw.
>>159058>To be fair it's often made clear that Venti never wanted to be an archon and instead wanted to live as a free person
Nta but I'm not exactly sure this is true, anon. Venti escaping his responsibilities has a lot more to do with him being cunning and not really understanding just how much he should intervene in Mondstadt's affairs as a free nation than not wanting to be an Archon, because his dream is to preserve the freedom his old friends died for.
I think his constant sleeping is the way he found to prevent the erosion Morax was talking about (and that made Ei autistic enough to NEET herself) rather than just lazyness
Idk why but I find it super funny that some people dislike Signora because she kicked Venti when Childe was about to destroy a whole City.
I wanted to see more about her and pull for her. She left us too soon.

Hey nona, just some questions from someone who wants to understand the lore better and you and other nonas discussing Rosalyn and Venti seem like you know what's going on. Did you get Signora's backstory from reading the artifact captions? Can I get in-depth info from checking the archives and books we gathered? I haven't been able to focus on playing seriously because of uni things so I can't check for myself rn. I missed a bunch of things from rl distractions and would love to understand the archons and the wars better. Sorry to bother you guys with basic questions!
No worries nonnie
! The Crimson Witch artifact set seems to be about Rosalyne, and https://genshin-impact.fandom.com/wiki/Rostam
this is all about her lover with many links. The genshin impact fandom wiki is a good place to get lore if you're feeling lazy.
I think it would be better to kill a main character, that way the death would actually hold a lot of weight, as long as they do it right and not for the sake of being dark and edgy (an unnecessary death of a cute girl).
Any bets on which Playable character could die? I'm thinking maybe Venti, Kaeya or Albedo. Some people say Childe has a lot of doom flags but I don't see it, maybe I'm in denial lol
They wanted to create drama with a death but keep the dying character "NPC-ish" enough via design and everything so that players wouldn't riot for not being able to use him, however in order to have the death make any kind of an impact on people they needed to make him likable and give him plenty of screen time. All in all a really bad move that didn't play out well and I fully agree how annoying it was that he stole screen time from other characters that are already confirmed to be playable or have been significant to the story before. They could've just given his position to a playable character and then faked his death if they really wanted to shoehorn in a cheap death scene, even that copout would've been better.
I wonder if Inazuma had a different writing team because I've seen nobody like the story and even the Chinese players are complaining about how bad the writing has been. >>159087
Killing off playable characters wouldn't make sense at all. I can see NPCs like Signora or the rest of the Harbingers get flagged but not characters that have already been made playable.

Wanted to share my favorite fanart, it's so cute, I look at it whenever I feel down. My favorite Genshin artist is @Qi2341! Picrel is her art. She draws a really cute chibi Aether, usually interacting with Childe.
I think it's confirmed that most Harbingers will be male but seeing what happened to Signora I'm not going to expect them to become playable. I'm already fearing that Scaramouche was given the death flag.>>159135
Fully agree, the subreddit is just fucking awful for the reasons you mentioned. It's insane how every
gacha game's sub ends up being exactly like that (shitty kindergarten level drawings, lazy costhots, unfunny memes, coomshit etc) two minutes after launch. I mostly just dig around Twitter for people to follow who translate Chinese players' reactions and watch streamers on
Youtube. >Expecting meaningful discussion on a majority male website that is indistinguishable from a youtube comment section ain't smart
True. It's telling how on Twitter the people who translate the most content, have the most meaningful points they bring up and explain the lore in a comprehensive way are always female while moids are stuck on chimp mode for all eternity, you wouldn't catch me dead being interested in their "reactions".

I love abyss mages so much, I really hope there’s some keychains or something like that of them in the future.
4pc EoSF is best with the catch but shes confirmed worse than c0 fischl in all comps but 2 lul
For main stats ER or Atk% / Atk% / Crit
This but you want ER sands and ATK goblet. The Catch is her BiS 4 star but it's a grind to get, even grindier to R5, so good luck with that.
As for being worse than Fischl I'd disagree purely because Oz just autistically stays in one place and if enemies move out of his range you have to switch back to Fischl to place him closer which is a DPS loss. Hell at least Raiden's skill follows your character around, we need more skills like that.
It's already been math'd that a c0 raiden is indeed weaker than a fish with any cons and about equal to her c0 outside 2 teams: eula kinda and the national team. If you rebuild all your characters with minimal ER and have a pjc to give xingqiu she can even replace kazuha or sucrose in national assuming you're a masochist who enjoys dealing with overload shenanigans without a CCer. That team is still not as good as international team with childe, bennett, kazuha, xiangling tho and she sucks with childe.
>you have to switch back to Fischl to place him closer which is a DPS loss
Doesn't matter because of how much more damage he does overall compared to raiden. Oz freikugel hits hard, while raidens entire ult can often be a dps loss.

I despise it.>the crying faces>the oocness that isn’t funny>the weird last picture that would be cute but is gross to look at after knowing that the artist makes porn of anime little girls>the whole ass baby Au made wrong
Seriously, there’s another artist who made a baby au of Genshin that doesn’t feel like you will go to jail after reading the comic strips, they’re cute, I think the Twitter handle is something like icedkappe. I only know of the kinder au though.
Aww this is actually cute anon, I love Kaeya and Childe's panels kek>>159293
is just plain disgusting
Obviously, but it's embarrassing to get so worked up.
You're getting all worked up over nothing. Pff, you've changed… You're getting weak.
I fucking hate this bweeh thing, not only is it incredibly annoying, I feel like I'm looking at some sort of diaper fetish art

Nonas, I've been putting off exploring Inazuma until today and the fucking side quests nearly broke me. I was trying to continue the Archon quest, but it said a character was involved in something else, so I tried going from the top, finishing what I started and I began with the Sakura Cleansing Ritual. Oh my god, why is this shit so long? There's barely a story behind it, it's just so unnecessary and drawn out.
When I could finally pick up the big quest it leads to Yashiori Island. Dodging lightning was super annoying and I hate the rain and getting electro-charged all the time, so I started the quest to make it stop. God, these fucking pillars. Why did they suddenly decide to not tell the player anything? How are you even supposed to find out what you need to do without online tutorials at this point?
I did two wards and then quit out of frustration, fuck the booba archon and her stupid ass hostile environment. I went fishing in Mondstadt and Liyue and decided to unlock the two new islands so I could at least get all the fish from there. Finding Seirei island's fishing spot nearly killed my main and I was about to give up on Inazuma completely until I went to Watatsumi island. It's so pretty! The colors are dreamy, I love the bubbles floating around and the shrine is so breathtaking, it's really beautiful and awe-inspiring! You're also not at risk of death where ever you go kek, it really made up for all the suffering. It almost makes me want to roll for Kokomi, just for the aesthetic. I know they won't, but a similarly designed male character would be so ideal honestly…
I just hope the puzzles and quests in the next region won't be this boring and long, it really takes all the fun out of the game for me. The electro-effect in some regions is just as annoying as sheer cold and I don't know how others feel about it, other than the few reddit people I saw praising it because "wow I love it when games are hard and challenging!", but it just makes everything so tedious. >>159361
Same, I was too low level when it happened and I'm still so salty about missing out on Festering Desire, it's so good and looks super cool!
I mean the one you've posted is just the same shit but with better art, about the male characters and made by a fujo.>>159374
The sad thing is that the Sakura Cleansing Ritual is one of the better quests in all of Inazuma so if you hated it and thought that was drawn out then you will definetly hate the stupid furnace quest.
It doesn’t have a girl pissing herself nor isn’t a 22 strips long comic with the same overused joke of little girls crying.

Yeah I had the same reaction! Watatsumi island is just breathtaking, best place in all of Inazuma. It has that non-coomer pandering femininity that I love! My instant reaction when I saw all of the seashells and color scheme was how much it looks like Barbie Mermadia kek. I might be the only one who thought that but I love it! It feels nostalgically girly. Like Barbie toy sets from the 2000s.
For me the Inazuma islands are absolutely impossible without an online guide. I could figure out all of Liyue and Mondstadt puzzles by myself and had fun just exploring and finding more secrets but in Inazuma I'm desperate to get rid of the fucking thunder, have no idea how to do it, all of the puzzles are nonsensical and require you to just look it up and I fucking hate it when I constantly have to pause the gameplay to look up guides. Watatsumi island was like a breath of fresh air amidst all that gloomy scenery. Overall it's depressing how dreary and oppressing the overworld has been compared to the previous regions, I missed Liyue's sunny and bright fields and mountains all the time. >>159379
NTA but if you can't see the difference between that extremely OOC gross loli bawling comic without any jokes and the one humorously playing off the characters' actual personalities then go back to /vg/ or reddit or whatever moid infested place you came from
I actually liked Inazuma more because of the puzzles kek, I guess everyone has different opinions and preferences. I enjoyed more the puzzles of Inazuma than having to climb the Everest every 2 seconds to get a common chest while exploring Liyue.>>159386
I didn't think of that, but I like your perspective nona.
Watatsumi Island is definitely a beautiful, peaceful place in the midst of chaos.

Yes!!! I love how a rebel camp is set up in a super girly island. It’s the perfect setup wish there was more time spent there on the archon quest.
or bennett and xingqiu, I had to do it co op until recently because I wanted to save the quest for when I felt like it and always used them. I'm using that combo again for easy signora co op too cuz lord knows if it took me 3 patches to do a short quest for a character I actually like I will never do any of those stupid inazuma story quests…
I agree. It makes it unique and fits with the story and how Japan actually used to be.
My only problem is going from one Asian region to the next felt a little repetitive. Sumeru will be a nice change of place since iirc it's mostly a jungle. And the academy!
Then I'm excited for Fontaine because I love European architecture.

Dreading because it'll be the last, and that makes me sad.

Posting best boy (Guoba)
Azhdaha is borderline impossible in co-op because you need to have a support character that gives you a shield and co-op cuts on your party size. It sucks because I like playing in co-op but Azhdaha has to be killed solo. They really didn't think it through.>>159424>>159428

When Snezhnaya comes out in 2028 Genshin has devolved fully into coomer impact and all characters will be loli/big titty waifus running around in sexy bodysuits and panties in the case China's authoritarian government hasn't already banned trade with foreigners /doompill>>159441
Kek I'm betting that Tsaritsa looks like this.
Am I the only yume who actually hates Childe. Like I'm going to forgive him just becuause he knew we could win, he still tried to destroy a city.
This is why I don't care about if future Harbingers are male or not, they're all probably going to be asshole villains and I can't husbando that shit anymore.
Not a yumejo but maybe it's just me but people who hate characters for arbitrary supervillain deeds like "he tried to destroy a city" judging them upon the morality of their actions instead of how well they're written, their character history, plot relevance, dialogue, design, personality and other things we fully have access to is being an immature, lazy consoomer who wants to be spponfed comfy nice characters with no complexity. You're completely valid
in hating a character but that's just how I feel about people unironically hating bad guys for being bad guys.
I'm not a fan of him too. He's too cocky and reckless, though I suppose that's part of his charm for others.
I feel like his story quest was meh in a way similar to how Raiden's was. >yeah I may have done a couple of horrible things but hang out with me and I'll show you how good I can be uwu
Both include their sibling somewhat.
He's good for bullying and making fun of though.

Happy belated birthday to the cutest cryo user!
You can turn it off healing automatically!
I did it when I got my Hu Tao since I didn't want statues to heal her when travelling around.
If you do this, people won't be able to steal it from your statue either.
Only you can heal, just have to do it manually.
Though I think this only applies to new players. Everyone should have a decent healer by now, no?

I have to sperg about the story again.
Signora was practically absent in Inazuma until her reveal.
Compare it to Childe during Liyue's arc:
Childe's presence was throughout the arc, and the story actually built up to the showdown where we beat him down (even if the build up was bad, it wasn't absent)
They couldn't even try and give Signora any story presence.
Perhaps it's because they never wanted Signora to be playable they didn't see the point in putting much effort into her, compared to Childe who they wanted to sell?
Listen here anon you talk shit on Qiqi and we're going to have a problem
Yes she is close to useless, yes I love her
noooo anon but don't you see you hate women if you don't find a bunch of predictable, bland coomer waifus empowering!!!! more female characters always means more feminism, it's a big win for us ~sapphics~ nonnie

No worries, you are right - that's why they all have Ko-Fis. I'm not entirely sure on how leaking works but why is it that Genshin seems to attract the most attention whorey ones? Simply because it's popular?
Although this got leaked and if true that means they haven't changed Yunjin's design which makes me happy. I'm going to try to C6 her.
I really hope Ayato is hot, I’m kind of excited about having an hydro claymore.
If only my shitty internet could fucking update the game already, i would have the stupid ass fish claymore to give it to my future husband.

If any of these are real Ayato's burst sounds real good but not sure about Gorou's one, another male support sounds lame even if the buffs are good. Either way I'm still going to get the puppy boy. >>159604
To be honest I'm scared that he'll suffer the Signora fate. I want to believe that Mihoyo wouldn't pass the opportunity to milk the whole fanbase dry since he was trending on Twitter during the new patch release trailer but I'm still afraid kek >>159607
You know that's not going to happen. Yunjin might have a chance to be a fully clothed writing otaku but I just know Mihoyo is going to waifuize her some way or another.

Didn't yae say they were both called baal?
Baal is Makoto, the dead one, Beelzebulb is Ei, the current archon. They are both basically the same name.
The confusion comes from the fact that they retconned what Zhongli tells us at the end of his archon quest

No idea what you're talking about, his movements look really fluid and cool. I love how he swings his leg around and his little jump backwards at the end of the forth hit, it's similar to Kaeya's. I can't wait to get him, I almost don't care which 5 star's banner he will be featured on.

The Genshin Wiki (picrel) has that info, although not in the character's page (you have to click on their talents to see the stats, scaling, etc.).
But Honey Impact was useful, it's a shame they are shutting down…>>159783>Maybe smarts?
Yes, probably. Maybe Dendro users are people who strive to learn something so they can achieve their dreams. Baizhu is interested in QiQi because she's a "zombie" and apparently he has a weak body. People speculate he wants to learn about QiQi to achieve inmortality.
Idk about Yaoyao, tho, she seems to like cooking, playing with Beidhou's crew and is interested in seafood according to other characters. No clue as to what her ambition could be…

As much as I wanted the dendro archon to be male the most plausible outcome is just that it's going to be another waifu and that's it.

Apparently there's no/very little proof of this beyond hearsay. Maybe this is just me trying to cope and maybe with everyone being pissy over the newest archon quest things will change for the better.
Tinfoil (and again, maybe for just me trying to cope) but everything was so fucking rushed for Raiden's banner to get it out before the anniversary and also before Kokomi's because they knew otherwise legit fucking no one would roll for her. It was probably a last minute decision by the higher ups and the writers didn't have time for it. Hopefully the complaints will have an effect. Not sure how many people in jp/cn are pissed about the story so who knows if they're even aware how mad people are.

Time to get my c25 xingqiu
This is legit. Never pull for a 4 star unless you want the 5star too.
I used 80 wishes on the ayaka banner and got her twice but not a single yanfei. Trickery
Tfw got two of the three 4* C6
Even less reasons for me to roll for kokomi.
I mean almost all female characters have a scrote pandering design. I'm just glad that she doesn't have the weird over spilling thigh thing like Eula or an underboob and she doesn't show that much cleavage. It's true that hers shorts are really short but the only female character with long pants is Jean and her pants are literally painted on her model. Even a character like Ayaka who has a nice design, has a skirt that weights like paper, because if you move her a bit her skirt is flying everywhere and you are suddenly flashed by her panties. So Kokomi her design could be alot worse, I think the best thing about her is her color pallet and her animations. Her animations make her look like a mermaid, but I will skip her banner because I'm on copium that we will maybe get a Childe rerun or a very good weapon for him so I will save my primos for that. >>160815
Damn my Xingqui is only c1 he keeps appearing on banners that I skip, please give me your luck. >>160816
Yeah I feel like it's sometimes harder for me to get the 4 star character that I want because the 5 star atleast has a guarantee, thankfully we can buy 4 stars at paimons shop.>>160869
It's so sad because I really wanted jade cutter but it's like you said, moon glow is made for Kokomi and does not work for any other character so i dont want to risk getting it.
Her design is cute but I still have this icky feeling about it, like with Yan Fei's design. Considering designs like Zhongli and Ningguang exist, it shouldn't be hard to find a balance between pandering and classyness.
I didn't realize how big this problem was with Kokomi until I watched this video

I still think Kokomi is the most beautiful girl in the game so far. Best idle animations too.

Posting this for Dottore anon (anons?)
I love her and I think Kokomi's design is very beautiful, even if it's just the colors, but yeah, a long skirt would have fit her role better. All Inazuma women except for Ayaka and Sara look like someone stole their pants kek, as if they're wearing nothing but a long top. It's especially noticeable with Baal imo, there's obviously something missing there. It makes no sense that Ayaka the Princess is wearing a knee length skirt and has the whole royalty that mustn't be disrespected and is therefore hidden behind a screen vibe, while Baal the Shogun just flashes her underwear at all times? I know why of course, but I wonder what the initial concept art for her might have looked like. They got Ningguang so right, it feels like Yae, Baal and Yoimiya were all made up by the same weirdo that just wanted them to show as much ass and upper thigh as possible, no thoughts about the character, role or personality of these women at all. I like the few male Inazuma characters we got so far, but like the video shows, the designers priorities for the female characters clearly aren't cohesion. Maybe if the shrine maiden NPCs also wore shorter skirts it would work better, this is just sad honestly. >>160916
Agreed! I wish they had someone who could actually write her, it's as if they gave up half way. Her battle tactic of "We need to hit as hard as possible without many casualties!" is so bad. It doesn't even sound cool.

I sometimes wonder if a long skirt like the shrine maidens wear would cause clipping issues, I can't imagine sprinting whilst using them. Although I love long dresses and ballgown-like outfits, they simply don't fit for Genshin because how on earth could someone fight in that?
I also wonder if Kokomi's battle quote is one of those phrases that sound better in Chinese. I've kind of given up my hopes for the story; people who aren't smart cannot write smart characters. Hopefully Mihoyo will listen to the inevitable feedback they're getting on the story. Perhaps it was rushed for Raiden's banner.

I'm rude as fuck to people who come to fish in my world. I say "no fishing allowed" in my bio but those retards still come, randoms and friends list people alike. The fishing system is such cancer.
True, that could probably be an issue. I guess that explains why most of the outfits are basically just strips of fabric on the front and back, if they aren't wearing the knee length skirt variant. I wonder if they will one day release a female character that has baggy pants like Xiao or Aether for example…
The "how will they fight then?" argument doesn't matter, this isn't reality after all, they won't trip or anything kek. Especially catalyst users don't necessarily have to move much anyways. Though I find that argument to be so strange, coomers use it to justify putting fictional women in nothing more than bikinis because they are "so badass" and therefore "don't need armour". Then why do the male characters? Make it equal at least, such flawed logic. How can they concentrate on the fight if their underwear is constantly on display, do they just not care? Does no one in the game's universe look at women that way, so it won't affect any fights, they don't even think about it? It's just natural to them? Then why is it different for the male characters outfits? What is their societal view on gender and sex etc etc.
That it sounds better in Chinese could be possible, but then again, most characters are really surface level if anything. And the writing really took a turn for the worse like other Anons have discussed before.>>160924
The fishing system is unironically the best thing to happen to Genshin in a while, it's so repetitive but fun. And why do you let strangers in anyway?

Well, her desing doesn't fit to her role at all. I thought someone with design like pic rel (It's Yue Qianshuang from Love Nikki) would fit better.
They need to stop being afraid to put armor on their female characters.
Her desing is cute but as a nurse/healer etc.

I want a character in full on armour like this.
Noelle's battle maid look is cute but I want more!
This character is from a typical moe coomer bait game (Princess Connect) and is a cute girl underneath it.
What character designs do you nonnies hope to see?

Please mihoyo, if you won't give me a buff male character, then give me more females with actual clothing kek

Full armour would be kinda cool! Maybe in a way where they put the helmet on for the ult like Xiao? It would feel like a waste to never see the cute face behind the tank…
I'd personally like to see some over the top rococo or baroque inspired characters in Fontaine, it could be really good, with the complicated wigs and big hats and all! They are supposed to be a very advanced nation technology-wise, so maybe some skills that involve classical instruments could be possible? Something resembling painted teacups would be interesting as well, no matter if it's part of the skill or a pattern on clothes. I also love Xinyan's look, a male character with those alt fashion/rock elements that pushes it even further would be so nice.>>160947
Same! At this point I doubt there will be many more tan/dark skin characters. Cyno is confirmed, but all the NPCs from Sumeru have had light skin so far iirc, so I don't think mihoyo will do much… I thought the girl in your image had a mushroom for a hat at first, the outfit is very cute! Why do you think it would never happen, it looks a little similar to Barbara's, so it might?
File: 1632016171892.png (1.78 MB, 1738x1860, 780B3C23-6006-4CE6-BEEC-C420C3…)
That's very cute. Some aspects of her outfit remind me of Lisa and Barbara together. Although most Sumeru NPCs are light skinned (actually, is there even a single darker skinned NPC…?) I do think that region along with Natlan will bring more darker skinned playable characters. >>160965
Amazing idea! I have high hopes for Fontaine. >>160975
In my mind she is exactly that.
File: 1632041492757.png (129.85 KB, 440x244, show.png)
>>160919>no thoughts about the character, role or personality of these women at all.
I feel the same way, even Kokomi she doesn't seem like a priest to me or a war strategist. She looks like a pretty mystical water spirit or something but not any of the above. I feel like the people who design the characters don't even know even communicate with the writing team and have no idea what kind of character they're actually are.>>160923
I think long skirts could still be a thing maybe even with melee characters. For example you can look at Sara her animation, while she does wear shorts she also have a long skirt thingie at the back and front. The slith is only at the sides but while running and other animation the front piece of skirt seems to be hold in place. But tbh i dont think they will ever make a character playable with a long skirt.>>160930
Omg I love Yue and her design is so good. I also wish they will put armor on female characters.>>160942>Aloy will be the first female character so far with actual pants. Jean is wearing tights(I think?)
Sadly Aloy is also weiring thights, just like Jean her "pants" are painted on the model. But Aloy does have some kind of skirt thingie so you don't have to look at her ass.>>160965
Yeah its kinda weird that all the npcs from sumeru have a light skin. Cyno is from Sumeru and doesn't have totally light skin so we will see i guess. Maybe they will give the people from Natlan a more darker skin?>>160984>I feel like Mihoyo will go full coomer with the next waifus from Sumeru
I'm sure they will, they will probably give lots of female characters belly dancer outfits.>>160975
I don't think they needed to change Kokomi's character but i wish she and the rest of the people of inazuma didn't forgive the shogun so easily and just chased her out of the palace or something. It would have been cool to see how Kokomi would take over with a few other people and rule the country instead because Baal is a horrible leader.>>160991>Game developers already were required to submit new titles for government approval before they could be released. Officials have called on them to add nationalistic themes.
God i hate the chinese goverment.>>160994
Why did they draw gorou so ugly.
Pretty much this, it's another one of those "this will never be enforced but if you piss off the wrong official they can hold it against you" laws. I doubt it'll affect Genshin Impact, for example Danmei (the Chinese BL/pretty boy genre) is massively popular and a huge source of money at the moment and I doubt they're going to take it down. It's usually about the pretty boy idols shown in advertisements and such. I hope at least, if this is the end of Genshin husbandos I'm selling my account
As for Kokomi I think her design is absolutely beautiful and the best I've seen in GI yet, but it's true that her "war tactician" thing was not there. It's a shame because I don't have a problem believing that she's in a position of power with her outfit (albeit I do think she should wear a skirt instead of running around in her underwear) but they missed the mark on creating a brilliant strategist.

I wonder how the twins will work together, if everyone here except for Ningguang are 5 stars and who the hell Snez's guy is.
In Honkai, if you use one twin's ult/burst and the other twin is in the party, they'll do the ult/burst together if that makes sense. Always thought it was cute. So I wonder if the twins will play in a similar way. Will they come together or will you have to get them separately?
Is Act V girl going to be the first 'fist' character or will Mihoyo disappoint again? Is her looking like Bennett a coincidence? They even both have bandages over their noses as well as same hair and eye color of course.

I could see them handling the twins either way, but more likely that they'll go the Honkai route. I imagined the Snezhnaya guy, Pulcinella I think?, to be nothing but a story character, the silhouette is very different from everyone else and his shoes are so ugly kek I can't imagine his design is salvageable in any way. I'm so hyped for that part though, Snezhnaya is so mysterious and has been made out to be the enemy of the world, I wonder what's going on inside, since the trailer mentions that the people there have no more love for the Tsaritsa.
What do you mean with fist character? Like she fights without weapon? What would Mihoyo be selling on the weapon banner then? Gloves maybe?
>Is her looking like Bennett a coincidence?
Oh my god, I would never have noticed, that's so interesting! She is from Natlan, the Pyro nation, and Bennett does have this mysterious origin, so maybe there is something connecting them?

I feel like mihoyo is adding too many plot lines without giving us enough. Visions, the sky and stars are fake, abyss order, Kaeya’s backstory, Albedo’s backstory and we also know nothing thus far about the unknown god. Instead we got the vision hunt decree (who cares about that?) that gave us nothing. Pic unrelated but I want more Albedo already mihoyo pls

Nah, I would say take your time to enjoy the game fully. >>161152
I have a friend who plays very casually and he is so awful at the game it's simply just funny to me. Also never dodges, only wants to play Diluc/Xiao etc. Though idiots in co-op are part of the fun for me. I can do domains by myself, I co-op so things don't get repetitive and I'll admit that I love when retards start fighting or are hilariously bad.
You can assume all leaks are fake unless they're datamined. No one can know how Ayato looks like or what his weapon is unless they work for mihoyo in the design department. We just gotta wait for dataminers to leak character models and other info on Ayato. I'm sure they mihoyo will add him eventually tho because it would be very weird if they didn't because he's mentioned in voice lines and npc characters.>>161151
Aw don't worry im sure Albedo will get a rerun eventually! Also I think you don't need to speedrun the story, just try and enjoy it with your own pace.>>161152
Yeah it's alot faster to clear domains yourself because most of the time people don't know what they're doing.
Some months ago, I got to AR55 and I hadn't even started Liyue's storyline. I was just like you, I thought I would take the game slowly and enjoy the story when I had more free time.
The reality is the story is not that deep, the writing can get really bad at some points (as some anons have pointed out) and I think waiting to get Albedo to start Liyue's story isn't worth it. I don't think you should speedrun all quests in… say, two days, but if you like participating in lore discussion, fandom shenanigans or whatever, you're going to miss out on a lot of things and get spoilered a lot. That's what happened to me. I'm AR56 right now, I'm up to date with the story, and I can say I'm enjoying the game much more than before. Now, I can actually answer the surveys and complain about whatever things have upset me about the story or exploration. I can also discuss lore with other users and understand what people are talking about when they say Inazuma's plot was a dissapointment.
I think you should advance through the story organically (?).

Tysm for all of your advice anons!! I haven't really had the time or motivation to play recently, so I've just been doing the dailies and moving on with something else, but I think I'll start the Liyue quest soon, mostly just for the condensed resin recipe, aha. I haven't done much exploration, and that's probably the best part of Genshin so I'll save Albedo for that!! I really hope Albedo comes sooner rather than later, and that all us Albedo wanters become Albedo havers <3

Ayato being a hydro claymore is pure speculation over 2 things:
There's no characters in game yet that use a nodachi (it's like a long katana) and him being a Kamisato and Ayaka's older brother it would make sense for him to use one.
Hydro because we both dont have a hydro claymore yet and also because in the Kamisato state, there's 2 scrolls in the living room that represent Ayaka and Ayato. Ayaka's is the one with the picture of a heron (as she's the frostflake heron) and the one that represent Ayato is the picture of some waves.
Anyway it's just a fair assumption.

Dottore anon I love how you’re always lurking this thread kek
I feel you. I don't let randoms join my world anymore, and I don't match with randoms in domains. They're all annoying, and rarely any good at the damn game. My favorite was always letting some random in while I'm somewhere difficult or important to the game, and the random just warps away to pick flowers or something. Super fun way to enhance your gameplay experience.
Anyway, I only bring actual friends now if I want to play with someone. Anything else is too much of a chore.

Nonas, I'm curious, what characters have you guys crowned/triple crowned??
Currently I have Xiao triple crowned and am working on Diluc. I was saving the crowns for Ayato and Itto but since it looks like they will take so long to come out I'll think about crowning Kokomi if I get her too.
Also, whats your standard for investing in a character that heavily? Mine is both a mix of the character being good and me liking them.
I actually liked Kokomi's quest, her being an introvert leader and feeling like her energy was being drained whenever she interacted with a lot of people was really nice, even somewhat relatable. At least, it was better than Raiden's. The quest helped wrap things up with Inazuma's chapter as well.>>161285
I only crown 5 stars, I haven't triple crowned anyone tho, just their best skills (Venti's ult, Childe's Elemental Skill, etc.).

Every character is viable, anon, just keep playing whoever you like because with enough investment anyone is good!! But some characters are just objectively worse than others and Xinyan is one of them.
It's mostly like her split scaling for her DMG (she scales w/ Def and Atk) that fucks her over together with her really long cooldown on her skill and so much of her dmg being physical while being a pyro character. Like some of her constelations make it seem like she's supposed to be a DPS but her best role really is like a burst support for a physical DPS? And even as that, there are other characters that do a better job at that (like Rosaria etc etc). Her burst is also super expensive and she doesn't generate energy well, her shield is divided in levels and even then it's not that strong (Diona's and Zhongli's are better for ex)

>>161366>but her best role really is like a burst support
That makes sense.
Now that I think about it, I mostly have her going nuts with her burst and shield while my Diluc does most of the attacking.
Ntayrt, I'm the Xinyan anon, and man you're obnoxious with your avatarfagging. I had hunch it was you because of that Lumine pic lmao.>>161353

Nonnies i have so much hope that we will get a childe rerun next patch even tho that would be so weird because there are many characters that even haven't gotten a second rerun yet. So i know i shouldn't get my hopes so high but please mihoyo. God i atleast hope the new bow for him will be good so i can get that instead if he doesn't come after all.>>161251>Guys, they'll tell us what the banners for 2.2 are during the anni livestream, right????
God I hope so, I want to get c1 Childe and i'm also not sure if i want to get Kokomi or not. I think im gonna wait the last day on her banner, we still have like 3 weeks so im sure we will get some info on who the reruns are. >>161269
Yeah the donut is pretty but only good for kokomi, if you don't have her i wont take the risk for pulling on the weapon banner imo.>>161277
Aw im sorry anon, thankfully jean is pretty good so its not to bad!>>161285>what characters have you guys crowned/triple crowned??
I have trippled crowned xiao, childe and for kazuha i'm only missing one crown and that is for his normal attack. I might have crowned more characters but my memory is bad kek.>whats your standard for investing in a character that heavily
Well like you mentioned liking the character is also important for me, but character design and the gameplay itself also has to be fun. >>161286
I love this, Amber is so cute one day i will build her!>>161350
I'm pretty sure Ayato will be hydro since it's actually already hinted inside the game, so let's hope it's true and that he will come soon.>>161363
God i hate Ubatcha, i do trust lumie and project celestia because they have a record of trust worthy leaks and dont just say random bullshit but ubatcha is such an attention whore. >Yae will be electro's dps ceiling

I thought baizhumains was a woman?
Anyway you seem to have this weird vendetta nonnie

Anon they're going to make waifus regardless of whether or not some of the waifus dont make any money. Do you think that kokomi would do better if she was a guy? Who knows we can't really say. I don't hate kokomi but she is a lackluster healer her burst doesn't insta heal like jeans or barabras and you need her on field to heal when she's in her burst qiqi doesn't need to be on field to heal nor does any healer really. I know jellyfish heals too but if you stagger or get thrown out of the field of the jellyfish no heals for you. I know bennet and sayu have the same thing but their 4 stars. Anyways we're getting guys in the future ayato itto and heizou and can't wait to see what they look like.

The fragility of a male gacha player is unreal. I'm also disappointed by Kokomi's underperformance but men have no business being this hurt over one

love you, nona. i hope you have a great day and then a great weekend and that youll pull every 5star you want in 10 rolls or less. Have this meme i made
On one hand I'm glad Mihoyo will realize there's only so much shit they can get away with when it comes to skills and in-story characterization, since I don't think even they expected the banner to do this poorly.
On the other hand, Kokomi is one of the prettiest characters in game, this numbers are depressing. She deserved a better kit.
I just hope this doesn't make Mihoyo think the actual reason she flopped is because her design is not as coomerish as the others.
I really do want to know if the main quest writers are different from the world quest writers. I want to know more about what goes on behind the scenes, maybe then we could get an idea as to why Inazuma's story sucked.
I pity the music department and overworld design department of Genshin sometimes. They've done a stellar job, but everything else in the Genshin team is not that great right now, especially the character balancing team, story team, and the overall decision making asshats at the top.
For specific character builds the kqm website is pretty helpful https://keqingmains.com/razor/

>>161525>my level 70 razor's autos hit for that much with ok artifacts.
Level 90 is not a scam, since it lets you upgrade talents to lvl 9-10. If you had said your Razor was lvl 80 I may have believed you, but a lvl-6-talent Razor with ok artifacts is not dealing 10k DMG to bosses. Slimes don't count nona.
really to do big damage is to just learn your characters and learn how the game works. i lvl 90 my dps and i dont really think supports need to go over lvl 80. i dont try to min max them just do the best you can cause rng is a bitch, i normally am happy with 50 % crate and like 130 cdmg
rlly just get most of then to 70+, lvl up the talents to at least 6 ( i go 6 for supports, 7+ for dps), get good characters for reactions such as sucrose, bennett, diona, mona, sara, etc. etc. (honestly i dont even use bennet, he makes the game a lot easier but you can achieve just as much damage without him). crown whoever you want it really doesnt matter. basically crown most things i like cause i like the way the 10 looks on the screen.
really genshin is just about putting the right artifact sets on characters, levelling up them/their talents/their weapons, and taking advantage of team compilations. if youre lost just watch a guide tbh. hope this helped !!

You've made me feel much better about my lvl 80 Razor not doing 10k. It's true I should level my talents and artifacts more. And you're right! I'll get a feel for what the characters need. It's like raising pets lol
Gotta invest in the bbs…
I was just worried that asking seemingly simple questions would start to annoy you guys, so thank you for being so nice.
Not doing it again so you'll have to settle for my word: lvl 70 ascended, talent level 8 normal attack, c4, r1 blackcliff with 0 stacks, only buffs were superconduct and geo party buff
It's a self drag to think someone must've whipped out the bennett mona combo for their razor to deal decent damage at all, "nona"

Why is the English translation so bad?
They probably have different people translating each quest and no central dictionary of important words.
Though still, 'gods are evil shits and keep the people down' is such an overplayed story beat.
A based and true post nonna if I ever saw one. >Wahh how dare you insult my sapphic icon coomer mommy created solely as a calculated product for limpwristed males to masturbate over, just say you hate women and go!!! >Said by either a 16-year old "lesbian" koreaboo who barely even plays the game because she can't afford the gacha, a nasty 30-year old AGP with a picrew avatar or a regular pornsick scrote>>161587
Yeah I have no idea how they keep making translation errors all the time, you'd think a high-profile game like Genshin would have some quality control over the localization. I don't know if they're just sending scripts from various acts to random freelancers with no concept for the game's terminology at all.

I hate that this theory makes so much sense. I would have never started playing Genshin if it wasn't for all the fanart of Childe and Zhongli all over any social media. Before getting into Genshin I hadn't heard about Honkai even once because there are no people making this much fanart of it.
What's the point in getting this much popularity by having a balanced ratio of male to female characters only to then start pandering to coomers mostly? And the anniversary rewards with these contests are also just taking advantage of talented artists for free marketing essentially. The recent contest where they wanted a design for a publicity bus and winning included the chance of them choosing one design to put on a real bus was so fucking scummy. Just pay your artists. I've seen a lot of posts about how the character preview picture and the one used in gacha are the same now, why are they being so cheap with their artists? The game would be nothing if it wasn't for them, where is all that money even going
I believe the current admin doesnt want to take care of the website anymore for a long time but she still hasn't chosen someone else. But i wouldnt worry to much since one super rich anon donated like alot of money and the goal is 130 dollar and 1093% was achieved of that goal. Also im pretty sure some anons from here made a kpop board so i have faith that if it really looks bad someone will a new site.>>161596>>161585
We already had this discussion, you are allowed to like the female characters and if you read this: >>158291
>>158365 we have agreed that most female character arent written well and have a bad design because theyre written and being made by males, this does not mean that we hate all female character but just that there arent alot of good ones. But i think we can all agree that Beidou is one of the best female characters. Also im not saying you cant like a coomer charcter, i really like mona even tho she has a horrible coomer design her character makes me really like her. '
I hope one day that they will release a cute skin for her so i dont have to feel like a pervert or uncomfortable when playing her.
Anyway kinda ot but i kinda hate how people imply that if you're a lesbian you have to like coomer female characters that have a boring personality or something. Like just because im a lesbian doesnt mean i have the hots for these fictional anime women that are written and designed by males kek. >>161643
I also never heard of honkai but it seems like shit and full of yuri bait. Maybe this will make you feel better but i believe theyre working on some male character so not all hope is lost for you. Still the imbalance of the amount of male and female characters is pretty big but i sadly dont think they will ever change it.
samefag, I'm not sure why some of the posts i referred to aren't working but I'm to tired to delete and do it again.
I also wanted to mentioned i finished Kokomi's quest and i liked it. It for sure was alot better then Baal's story and i like how it showed how draining this can all be for someone. I still think its bullshit that so many people of inazuma are just alright that the Baal is still the electro archon and that so many people like Sara are also in the same position. It makes the story sound so stupid so many people died for nothing because of there dumbass electro archon. They should have chased her out of the palace and everyone else who was in charge kek. I honestly wouldn't mind if Ayaka, Kokomi and a few other people would just take over the government and it would make more sense to.
The fanartist theory checks out. Half of Japanese mobile games owe their popularity to female doujinshikas and fanartists who created the hype with their works, that's why gacha games like FGO invite them as illustrators for special events all the time. It's low and infuriating though, one of the reasons why I started playing Genshin Impact was the balanced male to female character ratio and the way the girls (during the launch) were pretty non-coomerish. What Mihoyo doesn't seem to realize though is that they opened a can of worms with the worldwide release and aggressive marketing of the game, they can't just rely on riding the initial wave forever and expect people to stay. It's been said time and time again that scrotes are a finicky, fragile, unreliable audience that will ragequit over the smallest mistake as we once again witnessed with Kokomi's banner.
All in all, female fans are the ones creating the content everyone enjoys such as fanart. Men can do nothing but shitty dick measuring contest youtube videos and streams about how their whaled c6 character with equally paid for artifacts does this and this much damage. However I haven't lost hope yet since there are increasing talks about a ton of Inazuma boy characters coming up and Itto and Ayato are basically confirmed by this point seeing how often they're mentioned by NPCs and the story.
Was it just me or did this survey feel shorter than usual? I feel like they usually ask more questions than this, like questions about how you liked characters and stuff like that.
I made mine as negative as possible nonetheless, this was hands down the worst patch since launch in my eyes from the events to the plot to the banners to everything.

It's really stupid that they keep alienating the female players with the lack of male characters, but I have this weird theory where Mihoyo feel like they don't have to make as much effort with girls because, from what I've seen, female fans in general will become ride or die with a character, so Mihoyo doesn't feel the pressure to create new husbandos, in contrast to the male fanbase, that is not very "loyal" to one single waifu in comparison to women.

Oh my god that party decoration is adorable.
Now I really want a Diluc birthday party, i hope I’m still into Genshin impact for the next year.
I was thinking about Ganyu's story quest today and I honestly think it started out good. Her feeling lonely due to being half adepti half human is rather cliche, but it's understandable, it's easy to sympathise and possibly relate to, especially considering Lumine/Aether may also feel similarly alienated due to being from another world and all. Her animation in her story quest was gorgeous, Cloud Retainer teasing her, training with Xiao etc. I liked that. What was weird was how you went from that to doing fucking taxes with her. What? Why? Who thought of that?
I think her story quest could have been sweet if we had focused on helping her feel like she does belong in Liyue even despite her adepti status, or learnt more about Adepti and the Archon War overall. I don't care about Liyue's taxes.

consistently baiting this thread with this same bullshit. Don't interact.
As much as I'm counting on that Childe banner, him having a second rerun instead of Albedo, Ganyu or Xiao could piss off a lot of people, especially considering the last strike of shit with the Inazuma storyline, Kokomi's kit and the anniversary rewards.
If Thoma is paired with Hu Tao I'll probably skip both banners, I only have a 50/50 right now but I was only willing to take that risk with Childe.

She's useless at C0, I find her and the hyper around her really annoying and I also don't really have the need for a pyro 5 star anymore.
I might really have to skip Thoma for now and just wait until he's on someone else's banner or I can pick him up from the shop….
Nah, no merch of the game looks good to me. I mean, the official slime plushies are cute but I don't want slime in my house.
Keqing and Ningguang's figures look amazing but too expensive and not fond of either of the characters, and although I love Mona her figure is too coomer for me.

No, you’re right, Amber is not only cuter but also has a more interesting story than “I hope I can be as tall as my sister uwu”.
It has to be some dev in love vomit
with Barbara because she’s always a damsel in distress who is gentle and always forgiving of the creeps that creep on her.
I wish they could’ve made her more disgusted by them or something, to criticize the crazy otakufags who stalk idols and such, but then again, that’s the easiest crowd to attract.
