I am probably one of the few who aren't bothered by the Scara revamp. Electro is second to only geo as the shittiest element, while anemo is not only stronger but tends to have more fun kits, too. Case in point, Heizou is far from strong or meta, but his kit is fun enough for people to use him anyway.

On a sidenote, Scara won't even be the first to have a full revamp before becoming playable.
Tartaglia, the electro-wielding harbinger dude planning actual genocide, and Childe, the edgy but tolarable Hydro-vision counterpart we pull for bothered no one. So why are people panicking about Scara now is beyond me.

No. 223601

>>223583
Because it was always clear that Childe had a hydro vision and an electro delusion which he would rarely use. Scaramouche has only ever appeared with electro abilities and during the long wait people got attached to that and his personality and looks. Now everything is getting a complete overhaul. There are a lot of anemo boys already while there's only Razor for electro. According to leaks he's going to be a catalyst user as well and we just got Heizou. Maybe there would have been less arguing if this hadn't been leaked and everyone got to experience the change in context with the story. Right now it's unclear what the reason for this seemingly extreme and sudden change is and how he's going to look. Everyone is just annoyed in advance that they aren't getting what they've been waiting for

No. 223602

>>223601
he's never used any combat abilities, and he never had a vision

No. 223611

>>223602
Nta, but I agree with >>223601 saying that people got attached to his current personality and looks, even though he had, like, 5 minutes of screentime. Being told "Hey this character you've been waiting for since 1.1 is getting design changes and possibly a personality overhaul" is a bit upsetting for some people who have been waiting for him for so long and liked his current personality. We don't know how drastic these changes will be, in terms of design all we know is that the veil was removed, possibly for clipping issues (But Yoimiya gets that big ass bow). If all the speculation is true and his switch to Anemo represents freedom then I doubt we'd be getting a bastard villain which a lot of people were hoping for.

And while he's never used any combat abilities and never had a vision, I also assumed he would be Electro because he was created by the Electro archon, stole the Electro Gnosis, his outfit reminds me of Electro and he comes from Inazuma.

Sorry for sperging

No. 223612

>>223602
I guess his design and the fact that he's one of Raiden's puppets and stole her gnosis made it easy to assume that he'd at least have an electro delusion if not a vision. But he also doesn't have an anemo vision on him, so it's kind of random. They might show him getting it in the story, but right now there's no info on it either way. If the abilities were the only thing that changed it would have upset less people I think

No. 223618

honestly, was looking really forward to scaramouche for the electro. i already have most of the anemo boys, so the variety would be nice. hes a skip for me now lmao

Schtick they had going on. Xinyan and Kazuha felt a bit shoehorned tbh, and it shows because of the designs of their realms, Kazuha's thoughts were amazing, but I don't know, the event feels like it was more about Mona and Fischl, and then the writers thought "well let's add him since we need to sell him and her because the island has some part about music"

breath of the wild appealed to women with its fun gameplay, beauty, soothing life sim elements, cute bishounen protagonist you can dress up, horses, and heavy ghibli inspiration. genshin is the most pathetic wish.com chinese bootleg of it you could imagine, courtesy of a company whose area of expertise has historically been making games where you fondle young anime girl boobs and it shows. though it does have two perks: more boys to choose from than link (obtained via gacha) and being more accessible than the original.

aside from that

I can't help but think they mention "fantasy" so often because of all the people complaining about them not taking proper inspiration from any one middle eastern country in the way they did for other regions which have one specific real country as reference. It's weird that Sumeru is this undefined mix, but I guess that's the "exoticism" of it. I can't believe I haven't seen anyone talk about them using that exact term in this preview to be honest. But Sumeru looks fun so far, though anything would be better than the hostile and cold look of Inazuma.

I'm fully aware most characters simp for the traveler but with Zhongchi it's hilarious how fujos mischaracterize and overexaggerate their interactions when there's m/m ships with a much stronger basis like Xingyun or Thomato.

you say that as if going on dates with zhongli and spending millions of mora on gifts for him isnt 100x what the traveler got. his interactions with traveler have been negative, lore dump, or forced babysitting. he has a better bond with xinyan than traveler. but traveler has a strong bond with ayaka, maybe you can ship them instead?

Literally the only part about the summer event that I enjoy is Kazuha's story. Who the hell had this bright idea of making a fun, relaxing summer map into some annoyingly long story where nobody ever says anything worth my time and the only interaction is just pointless fetch quests every 5 minutes? At least last year it was a funny story with interesting character reactions with the focus on exploring the island but now it's just the equivalent of watching people you don't know doing things you don't care about and barren dungeons with nothing to do in them. I barely have any idea what the fuck is going on with the story because I zone out during the dialogue all the time, for fuck's sake Mihoyo, stop making limited time events so lore heavy and include them in the main story instead!

unpopular opinion: i never liked the yaksha story either. its so generic shounenshit. i still like xiao but if he wasnt a qt i dont think i would like him and his annoying suicide baiting very much at all. fuck yelan and her moralfagging for wasting all of our time in the last event. if the emo cutter boy wants to try to kill himself then let him do it. who the hell cares if zhongli puts us on his naughty list for not coddling his contractual onahole? he was going to fish him out and dope him up on lexapro again regardless

Comparing anything in Genshin to Steven Universe is really low imo. Nothing in Genshin, not even the ugliest designs like Eula's and Yelan's, comes anywhere close to the level of hideous of 99% of Steven Universe. Also I hate Honkai Impact, it's nothing but a disgusting uwu coom game.
>>224422
I like that her design invokes both mermaids with the seashell crown and scale legs and sirens with her mean looking bird claw things. Maybe it just has too much blue for you though? The yakshas are all except for Xiao and Indarias (fire lady) are kind of dominated by one primary colour and I think that's a decent criticism.
>>224428
I don't think they necessarily look better than Xiao, Xiao's design has a lot more colour to it. Legit the only one I think is bland though is Menogias for looking too much like Zhongli.

Not gonna like I think Tomo looks like a Yasuo ripoff and Chiyo has the child model look so I was predisposed to hating her, but the tengu and kitsune looked alright. To each their own though.

No. 224451

Speaking of xiao, why is he so damn obsessed with traveler? I thought it was so jarring how quick he started simping for them, pulling cheesy pick me bullshit lines like "you're different". Like I get it, his karma doesn't affect them, but it also doesn't affect the other adepti with whom xiao was very familiar with. Shenhe's and ayaka's situation was exactly the same, they barely talked and they were already head over heels for them. Ayaka was claiming she had no friends as if thoma and yoimiya didn't exist?
It just reeks of bad gary stu/mary sue writing. And before someone comes with "it's yumejo pandering, deal with it", don't you want to at least feel like you genuinely gained their trust instead of them orbiting around you just because you're the so ~oh great traveler~

For Xiao it made sense because he had been alone for literally thousands of years with his only purpose being self-sacrifice so of course he would be taken by someone wanting to break that cycle. The same sort of goes for Shenhe seeing how she's autism personified with barely any human contact in her life. With Ayaka it was just out of place because like said she already had Thoma, Ayato and Yoimiya and clearly was respected and well-perceived by the people of Inazuma yet she started simping for the traveler like she had never seen another human being. I would feel so fucking awkward if some random upper class girl I met 2 days ago would start traumadumping and blushing and dragged me out in the woods to perform a fan dance for me.

No. 224455

>>224454
Ah yes it only took traveler two words to get xiao and shenhe to simp for them right? Xiao barely appears in the liyue archon quest! You mean this 3,000 yr old being would suddenly start simping for someone just because they gave him a bit of an attention? The last event proved there are plenty of other characters who care about him like yanfei, yelan and zhongli but he's still dickriding traveler at the end even though they barely did shit

Exactly, the appeal isn't in the story, it's in the character designs. For a primarily straight moid audience might I add.

I was just talking with said friend how bull it is that the ~$100 deal doesn't guarantee you 90 pulls. Even if it did it's mind boggling how you could still lose the 50/50 if you aren't guaranteed. This game does a good job of wanting me to NOT spend money on it, besides getting the Welkin Moon.

I honestly don't see what's wrong with the writing when it comes to the plot, it's pretty straightforward, traveler wants to find their sibling, that's it.
Sure, it drags, the NPC drama is boring as fuck and there's lots of random infodump, but this isn't Macbeth, it's a Chinese videogame made by a company which's slogan is "tech otakus save the world" like, come on, what can you expect from that?
And it feels like some anons just don't understand that there's going to be lots of mistranslations because Chinese is a tough language that not everybody understands properly. Hell, Pokémon has a bunch of stuff that gets interpreted differently and it's from a huge company with surely better translators.
So unless you're playing the game in Chinese, then complaining about stuff that feels off or out of the blue doesn't really make any sense.
The things that I don't like are the unnecessarily sexualized, one note personality girls (which I skip and never care about because I have my teams with guys sans for the healers like Diona or Noelle).
And the fandom that's filled with bitter retards that take this shit too seriously.

Tell me you're a late joiner who can't read without saying it. Xiao didn't like the Traveler until Lantern Rite 1, where the whole event was getting him to open up and willingly spend time with someone, i.e the Traveler. There's criticism to be had in how the event system gets people to miss really important interactions like that and events should really 100% be rerun like in almost every other gacha to prevent new player lockout but you can't say Xiao instantly fell for the Traveler because it's just not true.

I've been playing this game since 1.2, I did the first lantern rite event which btw was 90% fetch quests, 5% xiao being an edgelord and 5% traveler and paimon being extremely obnoxious trying to convince xiao to watch the lanterns with them. Oh yeah apparently I can't read, I guess just because someone was being pushy and forcing you to watch an event with them it means you'll suddenly fall in love with them. And no, xiao never hated traveler, did you forget the scene where he saves them during the archon quest? And that's all because we gave him some fucking almond tofu? They try to justify this writing by saying that xiao was completely friendless for 3,000 years and the traveler is just his manic pixie dream girl/boy who suddenly opened his heart just by being "nice"

It's not only perving on Mona but also on Venti as well imo since it's so out of character, it's just an all around inappropriate line. I think Venti is cute and I don't read into his mischief that much, it's just a basic trickster trope that's pretty inoffensive in general.

Ventifag: you read BL manga on the regular and fantasize about having two boyfriends who will make out with each other in front of you, but who will include you sometimes. You have no chill, it's a full on obsession.

Ayatofag: you're a masochist and you drink iced coffee that's mostly milk.

Xiaofag: you were emo in high school and still listen to the music even if you dress normie now. You're probably also a shut-in.

Zhonglifag: you read BL, but you imagine yourself as the uke to his seme. Probably also a ZhongChi shipper. You love cosplay.

Childefag: you're the sadist to the Ayatofag's masochist. For some reason, you want to hurt this 2D man, but with love. You post a lot in the female gaze thread.

Ittofag: you love everything wholesome, just like your favorite himbo. You might have some slight autism, but doesn't everyone who plays this game? You're pretty chill about your love for this genshin husbando.

Dilucfag: you have awful taste in men irl and have been in an LDR with at least one shitty edgelord on discord, but you're actually a nice person and just want what you want. You don't have any ships because ship him with yourself.

The only one I agree with is uncontested worst boy diluc. It takes a true and honest autist to tolerate let alone like such a horrible character.

Childefags are either rape fetish fujos or bpd chans who want the abusive garbage man type of otome bf but lack the attention span to get into real otome / Vox vods so they settle for a watered down version of the archetype in the form of a 6.5/10 ginger dressed like bad mecha anime peewee herman

9/10 Kaeyafags have the female equivalent of a futanari fetish. Same applies to aethers.

Scaramouchefags are the ones with the degen femboy fetish, not venti. Watching black butler as a preteen sent them down a dark path. Secretly holds a grudge against fakebois due to being deeply triggered by their mlm sexualization discourse and repulsed by lewd content that doesn't involve boys who are still semi recognizable as boys with uncomfortably small, intact wieners.

As a Dilucfag, I feel like I must defend M'lad by saying that he isn't as bad as the fandom makes him seem.
First off, he cares about traveler, just take a few seconds to read his lines
>No need for small talk. All that matters is that you were safe last night.
>Would you like to try the secret menu?
>Alright, see you next time. I'll make sure you leave safely.
He's not like other autists because his autism comes from the horrible trauma that it's see a loved one die on your birthday, but he's actually really nice and has some empathy.
Just look how he treats kids
>Diona's attitude towards me is… how should I put it? Rather rigid. I've yet to find the opportunity to speak with her properly. I'm not sure if it's an issue with my family line or— Oh? It's not? She simply despises alcohol? Huh… I never thought I'd come across another bartender like myself in Mondstadt.
And he also hates alcohol, which it's a plus because he has a better coping mechanism than drinking until his liver rots. Which leads me to another point, he cares so much about the well-being of others that he uses his best, hand picked grapes that he picked on his own, to make an amazing grape juice so nice, that it would make others stop drinking, and he sells it on such a ridiculously low price that even if he loses profits, it doesn't matter to him because his goal is something else.
Plus, even if he doesn't like what you give to him, he isn't rude about it.
And he literally changes his views when you fully ascend him.
>I used to believe… if I was to stamp out evil, I would have to walk alone in darkness. However, seeing your perseverance, I know I was wrong. Friend… I owe you my thanks.
So in my conclusion, Diluc is an amazing gayshit infact husbando, and I love him.

Idk what other characters do you have built, but my point still stands. Diluc as Pyro DPS, Heizou as Swirl driver if you don't like Sucrose, or as a pure Anemo DPS if you don't like Xiao.
Razor needs a lot of investment (and more cons), and I don't really recommend Physical DPS because I prefer dealing reactions, but whatever floats your boat.
Keqing is not the best DPS at the moment, but I think she'll shine in meta when Dendro releases.
If you have Chongyun with cons, I would recommend building Kaeya as a Cryo DPS, he's fun.

No. 225483

>Dendro isn't new meta.
I'm curious, why do you think this? Most people seem to agree Electro will gain more importance with the addition of Catalyze and Aggravate. Granted, I'm not a theorycrafter and I can barely understand the math behind meta, so I'm just parroting what other people have said.
Either way, I think Dendro will be meta in one way or another. Mihoyo knows how to twist the game so they bait players into rolling for certain characters: Kokomi and Pyro Lector/Corrosion mechanic, Raiden and all those godawful Inazuma bursts with high energy cost, etc.

No. 225567

>>225515
Most electro characters (including Raiden regardless of constellation level) do not stand to gain anything from utilizing dendro reactions because of their poor application. The reactions aren't strong enough to make them worth using over old teams. Only Fischl, Yae, Kazuha, Venti, and Sucrose make worthwhile dendro team candidates as it is now. There's hope for Cyno since he will likely be the first electro dps with dendro reactions in mind, but if he isn't good to go with dendro mc alone good luck getting everybody to pull the ugly loli archon as an accessory for a male character.

All the dendro + hydro reactions are straight terrible. Issues include heavy downtime, cumbersome set up, severely restricting team building options, damaging the player, and the dendro characters themselves pretty much never being factored into the damage calculations.

This is very true. From what we’ve seen, dendro reactions has not saved electro from being one of the worst elements. It’s all up to Cyno’s kit now, if it’s mediocre he’s fucked.

Her rumored selling point is supposed to be her storyline. If they write it well, it may cut down on some of the degeneracy of the fandom.

On one hand, Inazuma's archon quest was a disaster and they did a terrible job of making us care about Teppei.

I really don't know how to feel about Kaeya and Diluc. When I first started playing the game I disliked Kaeya because I remember him being mean to Diluc for no goddamn reason during Venti's quest + all that thing about Kaeya being a spy from Khaenri'ah and saying he would eventually betray Mondstadt.
But then, we get this event where it's clearly shown Kaeya still worries about Diluc, sending him letters, trying to avoid conflic with him, being polite, blabla… Meanwhile Diluc refuses to make peace with him and keeps being an edgelord.
I don't even think I understand well why the fuck Diluc fought with Kaeya. From what I know (I read the manga some years ago), Kaeya told Diluc he was a spy from Khaenri'ah after Diluc's father died. Is that it?
Maybe I'm downplaying both of their traumas, idk, but I wish Mihoyo would make them talk to each other properly. I guess we won't get this type of character development until later in the story, but ffs, I'm tired of them being stubborn manchildren, especially Diluc. He's cute when he's with the Traveler, but I want him to start opening to other characters too.
By no means I'm saying Kaeya or Diluc are bad characters, in fact I think their conflicts and characters have potential, but they are always downplayed, never developed. smh

is what I find stupid and nonsensical as hell. I seriously don't understand why they keep writing them as "they care about each other" and the next second they are being pissy manchildren that can barely stand to be in the presence of the other. Kaeya even tells Diluc THREE DAYS IN ADVANCE he's going to be visiting him when Varka tries to make them talk to each other in hopes of helping them deal with their issues. wtf
They should write Diluc like a REAL tsundere that is grumpy (not edgy) but soft on the inside (smth he already is), Kaeya has the personality to work with that type of character trope and their dynamic would much less frustrating.

I seem to remember that at least one XY retard was outed having been stirring the fujos vs yumes infighting purposefully by provoking both sides. I don't know if they're all the same person but I wouldn't put it past that schizo troon spamming the site literally around the clock especially because he does that signature "no you're the moid" shit here too.

I'm starting to think that anon is based and right. If there's one thing I've learned upon witnessing fujos, it's how they claim to have reached the peak of female sexuality as a form of voyeurism.

Truth be told, it's less pride and more self-loathing. They can't project themselves on a woman because they hate their own body and how ugly they look. So they opt for yaoi where they can show as muxh degeneracy as possible while shitting on yumejos and himejos (fujos are homophobic despite most of them claiming to be gay moids and previously jumping on the fakeboi trend).

As such, they constantly victimize themselves when a media presents so much as just one attractive female, because it ruins their fantasies. Remember the stereotype that fujos hate female characters because "ewwww vagina"? It's a fact. The modern fujo, claiming to be a gay man, would instead throw a lot of buzzwords to justify the offense taken against them.

Fujos should therefore be shamed and rightfully so, like any cow exposed on this website.

Will Mihoyo add more Inazuma characters, or do you anons think they'll drop Inazuma and act like it doesn't exist after releasing Sumeru? Seems like they are still willing to create more Mondstadt characters aside from Varka (like Mika) and Liyue will keep getting new characters each year because it's China in-game and this is a chinese game.
Thoughts? I think they may release one more surprise Inazuma character in the future, but it will probably be a 4* star character, idk.

I'm down to pretend Inazuma doesn't exist kek. We could see a new Inazuman character pop up one day but the region and its archon have no reason to be plot relevant ever again. Well, aside from the obvious fanservice. It was a rushed filler region that had no bearing on the main plot of the game. I really hope that we aren't forced to finish the Inazuma archon quests before the Sumeru ones become available because of that.

She's arguably better than Hu Tao in dealing with single targets, she doesn't rely on burst or need a lot of energy and she can work with a lot of different supports. She's also very f2p friendly compared to Hu Tao or Raiden for instance. That being said you basically need a shielder to use her because she's very vulnerable to interruption and she has no real AOE. I like her, I found overworld exploration got a lot easier when I got one of her accidentally, but she's not a must-pull if you have Hu Tao already.

She murders everything on the overworld that isn't a pyro slime or pyro abyss mage. Her arrows are like a machine gun, they shred everything quickly and you don't have to aim at enemies, the arrows do it for you (though sometimes they miss because the aim system isn't great). Even the tankiest overworld enemies melt with her arrow barrage. She also does really well with f2p weapons like Hamayumi and Rust so if your weapon banner luck is shit or you just don't roll it you're good to go with either one.

If your heart's really set on Cyno you probably will want to save though, apparently he's going to be the first 3.1 banner according to leaks. I ended up throwing some pulls for Yoimiya just because I don't want her banner sales to be complete ass, Mihoyo screwed her banner timing again, but now I'm in saving mode once more.

Nta but i think anon is referring to the fact that yoimiya is very easy to play since you just gotta auto attack. shes nice to play on mobile for exploration since you dont have to use your brain and just press one button to kill enemies. But i feel like more genshin characters are like that and you shouldnt have trouble exploring in overworld when you're late game anyway since the enemies are super weak and easy to kill no mather which characters you play.

I would advice to only pull for her if you really like her character or her playstyle. Personally i dont like her kit that much.

Depends on what his kit is like.

However all anemo characters have a pretty fun/interesting gameplay and kit so maybe if scara plays really fun i will get him.

Personally I feel like bow users in the game generally got dealt a shit hand and their intended gameplay seems to be using aimed shots to deal damage which is absolutely hell to use. The autoaim fucks you over if you fight a lot of enemies around you too. They can't use infusions to deal elemental damage like sword/polearm/claymore and they can't deal continuous elemental damage like catalysts, they're just stuck at using charged shots and getting interrupted all the time.

Building Xinyan is tricky basically because… she doesn't have an optimal set. My Xinyan focuses entirely on DEF because at the time I used her as a shielbot, but once I started building healers, she got benched. I don't think I've used her for anything since then, and it's truly sad.
I advise looking at her guide on KQM, or maybe search on Youtube for different Abyss 12 floor Xinyan runs. Most of them show their builds at the end of the video.

Absolutely this, hence why she's not used a lot in the meta I think. But like, who cares, it's a singleplayer game, use what you want however you want.

The devs throw nobless oblige on almost every character during a trial run. Please never try to use in game examples for builds because they mostly suck. You can either build her as support or physical dps, like >>226905 mentioned you can check out kqm guide on how to build her https://keqingmains.com/xinyan/ Since she's split scaling she's not "strong" but this game is piss ez so who cares.

Thank u! One of my teams (freeze team) has Kaeya/Chong/Jean/Ayato, Ayato works as burst DPS character. I obviously need a male healer for this team, I'm thinking of building a healer Heizou unironically just because of this, kek. I used Venti instead of Jean to create my own "morgana" team for Hidden Strife hardest mode and I managed to complete most of the days with the team. Kaeya still needs some better artifacts tho.
Childe relies too much on Xiangling atm, although sometimes I use him with Thoma, they are surprisingly fun to play, although Thoma doesn't vape that often he provides a shield to compensate and Childe can spam his attacks non-stop thanks to that. I sometimes use Childe/Thoma/Bennett/Venti.
While I'm still building the teams, I clear 9 and 10 Abyss floor with the tall husbandos I have. Thoma, Childe, Zhongli, Ayato and Kaeya, only five characters. So far I've managed to clear those floors with full stars, 11 floor is still difficult to clear with the husbandos tho. Sorry for the sperg.

Wow its nice seeing nonnies committing to full male teams! Not gonna lie to get all stars with every abyss i do not only use husbandos characters. My teams that i use to clear pretty much every abyss and switching them depending on the enemies and floors ect:
-Childe, kazuha, bennet and xl (xiangling just does so much pyro damage of field, i wish we would get another male pyro character like her. Or maybe childe will be good with a male dendro character?)
-Xiao, Jean (have to use her for the heals and as anemo battery), zhongli, albedo. I guess i could swap jean for another anemo battery since zhongli shields so much but kazuha is mostly occupied in another team. I havent build heizou yet but im not sure if hes a good enough battery for xiao.
-itto, gorou(hes c4 so he can heal), albedo and a flex slot which i mostly use for fischl but sometimes i use zhongli instead if can go full geo mono.
-kaeya, venti/kazuha, xq, chonyun
I also build diluc since i got his skin.
I use him with xq, bennet and kazuha or zhongli depending on what other team i being used.

We also dont have enough male electro characters so i have build fischl and beidou for electro charged team comps but i barely need to use those. Sorry for the huge wall of text btw i like talking about team comps kek.

>I havent tried to use thoma and childe together yet! But im planning to build my thoma, i think he will also be good with dendro because of his shield.
Nice, I suggest you give him lots of Energy Recharge, his burst is the most important part of his kit since it can refresh and stack shields when you deal NAs every 1 second.

I've been using 2 all male teams to 36 star the spiral abyss for literally over a year. you don't need more male characters to do it, you just need to use the right ones. you aren't going to get anywhere with an all male freeze team without whaling extremely hard because they don't have the firepower.

bennett is an insane unit. he is not only the best healer, not only can he pass a 1.4k attack buff, but he is the best single target dps of the boy meta. the cooldown of his skill is reduced drastically in his ult field. when paired with chongyun and xingqiu, you can consistently freeze enemies and proc melt endlessly. melt has a higher damage multiplier than vaporize, allowing his damage to surpass even hu tao's without homa, all while simultaneously batterying for yourself due to producing tons of particles in the process, healing like crazy, and doubling his attack stat. oh, did I mention his initial burst hit alone can crack 400k+ melts with nothing but kazuha?

use him everywhere that requires heavy damage and cc, especially when you feel like you'll need a healer. even if a new male pyro dps is released, his utility will keep him glued to the top of the boy meta for a long, long time. it is worth it to get mistsplitter for him. you probably know by know but do not activate his c6. crimson witch is the best artifact set, EM/Atk Pyro Crit/Critdmg. it may also be worth your time to set aside a high er% pure support set for him.

>T0 Kazuha and Venti

must haves. both of them. their cc and buffing is invaluable, as is the chameleon nature of anemo. their Kirby-like ability to absorb any element (aside from geo and dendro) into their ults (and skill in kazuha's case) really helps fill in the gaps of other characters application, our two sad little cryo boys in particular.

they work shockingly well together. they really mow down any content with pullable enemies with their 100% uptime cc and they battery for eachother, lowering their respective energy recharge needs. I like to give kazuha VV and venti 2 gladiator 2 anemo. they pair particularly well in the overworld with all the mobs running around there. anemo resonance is very strong as well.

kazuha is suited to… everything. you will be seeing him more than venti, but you will almost always be seeing them together anyways. learn to exploit his absorption. kazuha's absorbtion priority ai goes the element he is applied to him > pyro > hydro > electro > cryo. doing a puzzle in dragonspine where you need fire, but too lazy to switch in a pyro? go touch a torch to apply pyro and simply use his E! struggling in the mondstadt talent domain? remember, bennett's ult will apply pyro to the on field character. plop it down, get kazuha in it, use his ult which will be pyro infused, and go to work! c2 is worth it if you can get it. his weapon is not. full em vv set with the craftable em sword or whatever er% sword you have lying around will do.

boasting the strongest cc in the game, venti is suited to pullable enemies of all kinds. his targeting can be annoying, but eventually you will get a feel of how it works and learn where to move to get his ult where you want it to be. some characters also struggle to hit things in his ult and he's not ideal in boss fights which means he doesn't see floor 12 in every abyss rotation. occasionally his strong teammates are able to compensate for him being deadweight in floor 12, other times it will be better to bring someone else. he does not need more than c0 and a 4 star bow, but his 5 star bow elegy for the end is nice to have.

>T0 Xingqiu

another boy meta staple. he offers excellent off field application and damage, our only source of recovery not tied to an elemental burst (well, outside of zhongli's c6), heavy damage reduction and stagger resistance, and a super cute touken ranbu esque design. his E hits like a bus too, easily reaching up to 200k under a c2 kazuha ult. can function as a very strong pyro and electro shield breaker.

he's dps bennett's BFF alongside his actual BFF chongyun and kazuha. also works perfectly with the kazuven duo using venti's normal attacks as a driver for his water swords, and in xiao teams where you may want a bit of healing but won't be able to remain in bennett's small ult aoe. go for c6 and sac sword, can use noblesse or 2no 2 hydro set.

>T0 Albedo and Zhongli

of the many geos, these two are easily the most versatile and useful overall. zhongli's super beefy shield, unique petrification ability, and res shred will ALWAYS be useful, as is albedo's free off-field aoe damage. you can throw them on any team lacking a fourth member.

with that massive aoe and high uptime, shields, high, completely off-field aoe damage that hits all enemies in venti's ult and procs on any instance of damage the enemy takes, and his element being so rare for enemies to nullify, albedo also pairs excellently alongside xingqiu with the kazuven duo. this is true for exploration as well. you can use venti's hold E on top of albedo's E elevator. after doing so, plunge, switch to kazuha, go back up, and use his E to make climbing a joke. you can cheese entire domains with this tech.

albedo can use his free event weapon and he husk of opulent dreams set. zhongli can use whatever weapon you want him to (homa, favonius lance, the catch, etc.) with noblesse, 2 no 2 ap, or tenacity (though I don't personally like farming tenacity because the second set in that domain is currently useless for the boys.) zhongli does not need constellations, but c2 is great for albedo.

>T1 Xiao

with his ridiculous aoe, xiao is the best dps from floors 9 to 11. think kazuha and venti in a dps form, so best suited to mobs. to ensure that his ult. though he really doesn't always need support from bennett with decent play, I find that the most common xiao team I use is xingqiu, albedo, and zhongli/gorou. xiao does not need constellations unless you are going for c6. use with pjws, homa, or blackcliff and 2 atk boost 2 vv or the new set made for him.

>T1 Itto

itto has the perfect mix of aoe and damage for bossing, and has impeccable synergy with his geo bros. I have used the mono geo team in every floor 12 since the day he was released. though he's not particularly useful outside boss fights, abyss, and battle events sadly. using his ult in the overworld can cause some awkward energy issues. does not need constellations. use with serpent spine or the craftable claymore and husk of opulent dreams.

>T1 Gorou

with so many geos in the boy roster and so few healers, this pup is an extremely valuable unit! he's like the support half of bennett but specifically for geo. in situations where you're looking for geo res for albedo alone i. e. in a xiao team, I prefer gorou over zhongli. just give him a character who can make him or albedo proc crystalize and he will instantly drag the shields to the character. his ult's damage ain't half bad either even with a support heavy build. really try to get him to at least c4 asap for that healing, and c6 is also excellent. can use with favonius warbow and husk set (def% def% healing bonus%) with at least 50% crit.

>T2 - Chongyun and Kaeya

as the only male cryo units, they see plenty of usage, namely as shield breakers, burst dps, and puzzle sluts. as mentioned before, chongyun is needed to maximize bennett's dps. bennett's pyro infusion from c6 takes priority over chongyun's cryo infusion. activating that constellation reduces not only bennett's own dps potential but chongyun's usefulness drastically, at which point you should switch to kaeya. it's a bad constellation, again I highly recommend against activating it.

I also recommend against using either as a proper dps in abyss unless you are a whale. they hit like wet noodles. if dps ganyu has been considered bad in spiral abyss for a long time now, imagine how they feel.

>T2 Geo Aether

geo aether hits deceptively hard, he can fill in for any geo you may be missing!

>T3? Tighnari

tighnari has not been released yet, but I don't see him being much more than a puzzle slut for a while unfortunately. he is a quick swap dps. having to lug around Razor/Electro Aether for the electro application he needs is a deal breaker, and Cyno seems to be a greedy dps which means they may have wonky synergy. we'll have to wait and see.

one good thing about him is dendro destroys hydro AND electro shields the same way pyro does cryo. he will be very good for lector and mage shield breaking if nothing.

>T3 Ayato and Childe

they're very good in the event the pyro cube boss shows up in abyss. otherwise you need to whale to warrant using them over the higher ranking dps options as it is now. xingqiu is the better and more versatile hydro option.

>T3 Thoma

standard shielder. similar to his lover, thoma has no advantages over xingqiu (better damage, better element, recovery, "shield" stays until burst duration ends). or zhongli (better damage, stronger shield, cc, low energy burst), or albedo (better damage, less field time, better shield uptime), or even gorou (healing, dmg boost to Albedo). though he may be used on burgeon teams for fun in the future.

>T3 Razor and electro Aether

puzzle sluts; no use in abyss. electro is a useless element. the strong female electro units are good because they have strong kits, and they would instantly become better if they were any other element. the lack of male electro characters is not a handicap in any way shape or form, the only side effect is the lack of variety. I'm honestly quite worried for Cyno's performance without good dendro support because of how bad it is. he may end up as another boy who is not useful for clearing abyss as fast as possible until we get a strong male dendro support and I doubt he will have many advantages in the overworld either.

>T3 Heizou

my personal favorite design in a long time, which is why it kills me that he's severely outclassed by the other anemo boys. he can work alright with electro mc, xingqiu, and your choice of venti and kazuha in an electro charge team for fun. it is not efficient over other teams in abyss.

>T4 Diluc

just use bennett. there's only room in this meta for one pyro dps. even at c6, he cannot compete with him.

>T4 anemo Aether

point and laugh.

Can any autist-chans help me with team comps too pretty please!

It’s been a year since I’ve started playing and most things are easy in the overworld, so I’d like to try out spiral abyss floor 10-12.
What team comps would be the best for relatively easy abyss runs? I might need to pull for more dps units I’ve noticed. The constellation number is in the right corner btw.

No. 227024

>>227016
honest question: what fun is there to be had in the spiral abyss? it's just something you farm once every two weeks for the rewards. thats like saying you do daily commissions "for fun." the combat events where everyone is roided out on buffs can be fun. the dungeon events are fun. exploring can be fun. but spiral abyss? it's a busy work. use the characters you've built who can get it done the fastest so you can get your free gems to pull new characters and weapons and then go spend more time in the fun parts of the game.

>>227019
try

floor 11 first half - xiangling bennett venti/sucrose/kaeya chongyun/kaeya

floor 11 second half - zhongli heizou fischl xingqiu

floor 12 first half - zhongli/venti heizou fischl xingqiu

floor 12 second half - sucrose kaeya/chongyun bennett xiangling

you may not get all the stars with your current roster but you should clear them at the very least. you should get ayato or childe to pair with xiangling and bennett. itto, xiao, ganyu, or ayaka would also be fine investments.

No. 227026

>>226993
Bless you anon, I use all male teams in abyss too but
>do not activate his c6.
I just don't agree with this. Activating Bennett's c6 was the best choice I ever made regarding this game because his pyro infusion makes up for the lack of good male pyro DPSs in the game. The only units in the entire game that are hindered by it are Eula, Keqing (both shit) and maybe Ayaka and in an all-male team it doesn't matter. It's only destructive to characters focused on physical damage (which is useless) or using elemental infusion that gets overridden by Bennett like Chongyun's elemental. It's only in rare cases that it doesn't come in handy.

as I said in the chongyun section, his c6 reduces his own damage potential drastically.

chongyun's E infuses bennett's normal attacks with cryo. by using the cryo infused normal attacks between each of his skill hits, bennett can melt every single skill hit. when fire triggers melt, it does more damage than when fire triggers vaporize. 50% more to be exact. this is how he can surpass hu tao's damage (she is purely reduced to vaporize). but with c6 robbing him of the cryo infusion, bennett can only vaporize his hits resulting in a much lower damage output and a useless chongyun. it can also lead to him vaporizing the wrong hits: his weaker normal attacks instead of his skill. that is why his c6 is so bad. it hurts him more than anyone else. they should really add a toggle.

>>227029
remember, this list has only boys in mind. their fast abyss teams utilize female characters. they are ranked low because they have less synergy with the other male characters.

No. 227038

>>227031
what? I never said you need specific constellations, just that they're nice to have. and you said yourself you are struggling with your kaeya freeze team in abyss. you will continue to do so until you swipe and swipe hard because you are using a weak team.

I just made it for fun. it's based entirely on my own experience of using the male characters, the only characters I've invested in, to consistently get 36 stars in the spiral abyss. no one's scolding you for not doing things a certain way, but know that content of this nature cannot be fully cleared without using decently strong teams or buying strong gear for your weak teams. they are not capable of dealing enough damage otherwise even with perfect artifacts and high talent levels.

No. 227043

>>227033
But that's only an issue if you really want to use Chongyun in your team, for literally every other composition his c6 is a blessing. For DPSs like Xiao, Itto, Ayato and Childe it's not an issue because their elemental damage can't be overridden and with Kazuha it's only beneficial to add a pyro element to do swirl reactions. It helps out a lot more units than it nerfs so I just can't see it as a hindrance.

Yeah i also have c6 bennet and i dont regret it at all. It helps my diluc a lot and it can be fun with some whacky things like pyro dps zhongli.

>>227038
NTA but i dont think freeze teams are completely useless depending on which abyss version it is. I remember a while ago freeze teams where super nice to have in at least one floor because enemies like the wolves kept waisting time and flying everywhere. The current abyss doesnt favor a freeze team but maybe in the future it would be usefull again in some floors. Vid related is a kaeya main and they always manage to get all stars. I dont think they are a total whale since it took some time for them to get mitsplitter. They cleared the current abyss also with kaeya but in a reverse melt comp.

I just realized I deleted a chunk of the xiao part by accident, oops. after
>to ensure that his ult
it was supposed to say
>to ensure that his ult maintains uptime, use all his skill charges right before you use it. his skill does not release particles in his ult. since he self harms he pairs well with bennett for the attack boost and healing, though […]

>>227043
not really. dps bennett's best team comp by far is the one with chongyun. they go together like yin and yang if you will. dps bennett is a bit of a nuclear option, he rarely sees usage outside of floor 12 where you will feel that damage loss the hardest. otherwise, the only character who's really going to be doing normal attacks on a bennett team is venti as the best driver for xingqiu's swords. but his normal attacks will not get infused with pyro since he's an archer. kazuha will always absorb pyro when simply standing in bennett's ult field regardless, and his normal attacks do so little damage they are never worth using. it does have some very situational uses, I had fun messing around with it in the event that had a buff that granted an extra constellation, but it is absolutely not worth permanently neutering your dps bennett for.

Ah no no, you misunderstood me. I said I was struggling to clear the 11th floor with ONLY TALL HUSBANDOS, kek. Picrel is what I mean (sorry for taco language), I can clear 9th and 10th floor just fine, but I don't think I can do 11th floor with them alone.
Ironically, my freeze team is what helped me 36* the abyss for the first time during 2.5 update. I haven't used it this update tho, mostly because I main Childe and wanted to use him on second half.

No. 227114

>>227052
you are right that it depends on the version. in an abyss that so strongly favors cryo you can get by with a freeze team. I myself used kaeya, chongyun, zhongli, and venti on one abyss floor 12 (only cryo spam to counter hydro lector shields not true freeze). it's very rare that something like that happens though is my point. in the average abyss they will only hold you back. there is no strong male hydro freeze support like mona.

Yoooo wtf I just saw the hidden box by the brick wall in the Diluc event. I can’t believe that they confirmed that Diluc thought he blinded Kaeya, but Kaeya isn’t blind but has a scar under the eyepatch. And Kaeya is from a fucking clan that were reagents in Khaenri’ah when the king failed? So he’s not of royal blood but still kind of a prince from Khaenri’ah?!

What are you talking about nonner, kindergarten level PSAs about ~being yourself~ are way more engaging than learning about Kaeya's background from Khaenri'ah or his and Diluc's painful past that was implicated from the start but never fully explained in detail. /s

I'm so fucking glad I was warned beforehand to check the rest of the letters found around Diluc's mansion and behind the brick and to look for Kaeya when exiting the wineyard because so many people missed them entirely and they were rightfully pissed off about it. It's a fucking joke to hide pieces of important lore in an event while giving whole ass 3-part dungeons just for us to find out that Fischl was told by her parents to grow the fuck up. I don't understand, Mihoyo clearly has competent writers that can tell a story but they're left to work on background stories and world quests while everything that gets stuffed to our faces is borderline retarded.

This is exactly how I feel! It’s honestly so fucked up how we barely have explored the lore with Diluc and Kaeya but get so many events with one dimensional characters over and over again. We got such a big insight of their relationship from fucking text. Such a waste.
>>227373
Hmm did we really know that he didn’t have any royal blood at all but was put in as reagents because of an incompetent king? That was news to me. But yeah the eyepatch thing was such an important thing, players have wondered this since the beginning of the game where Kaeya points out his eyepatch. It’s crazy that our answer for that after almost two years was behind a fucking brick wall that most players won’t know to look for.

Was it actually confirmed he didn't have any sort of special/cursed eye? I've seen a lot of people say the same as you but I'm confused because I thought it was still implied Kaeya had always been wearing an eyepatch. I figured Diluc injured his eye in their fight specifically because it was some special eye connected with Khaenriah. I know the box by the brick wall text mentions that Kaeya used to pretend to be a pirate as a kid with the eyepatch, but the webcomic shows an ~18 y/o Kaeya before their fight wearing the eyepatch, surely that wouldn't have been for playing pretend purposes? I assume he meant it like "pretending to be a pirate was my excuse as a kid for always wearing my eyepatch". Might be essentially a retcon in which case I will be annoyed

nta, but I'm pretty sure he's hiding something else under his eyepatch than just a scar and he's only using it as an excuse. Diluc's voiceline states that you can only trust about half of what Kaeya says so that applies here as well. So he probably has the scar from the fight, but has another reason to wear the eyepatch.

No. 227418

>>227416
Excuse my samefag, but the brick wall lore also said that the one-eyed king Irmin failed and that Kaeya’s clan took over right? So all high position figures we know of from Khaenri’ah have one eye obscured, like Kaeya, King Irmin, Dainsleif and Pierro. Which might be the reason why Kaeya had an eyepatch before Diluc injured it.

No. 227419

>>227418
If you think about it, and think about his voiceline talking about his eyepatch, he says that he just covers his eye like a person would wear pants to cover it. Maybe it's just a tradition of Kaenri'ah to cover the right eye to honor the king? And he got so used to it that he feels naked without it, but using the scar, the pirate tale and being blind from that eye excuses are the way he makes other people stop asking about it.

>Maybe it's just a tradition of Kaenri'ah to cover the right eye to honor the king
Definitely a possibility! However, Halfdan, (Dain’s soldier friend) does not have an eyepatch. This isn’t a design mistake or laziness in npc designs though, since mihoyo did give Halfdan and all characters from Khaenri’ah diamond shaped eye pupils. So maybe only people of high positions in Khaenri’ah had eyepatches? Either as a fashion garment or because they all have some joint issue/curse with their eye.

This sounds very interesting, anon. You're completely right and it makes sense. I was also reminded of how he's missing a wing on both sides of his Mondstadt vision, I wonder if that ties in with him being from Khaenri'ah.

I’m glad it made sense! This is why I was mindblown by this important lore being in a brick wall kek.
I totally forgot about Kaeya’s weird vision case though! I have no legitimate theories about it until we see Pierro’s (and maybe Dain’s) vision. I wonder if they all can wield elemental powers through some God-defying experiment in Khaenri’ah that make their visions/vision cases fake. So they can wield powers without it like Dain. Therefore making Kaeya’s vision fake, hence the weird look of its case.

His ears are his main selling point, I have to agree lol, but he also seems to be really cute and lovable by the way he speaks and his idle animations are priceless.
I'm also pulling for him because he is the first Dendro 5* male character and I'm not gonna miss out on that! Also, he is apparently going into the standard banner after 3.0 and knowing my luck, I don't think I'm going to lose my 50/50s to him.

Weapon banner can be such a scam to be honest, sure the hard pity is lower as is soft pity but to even have a guaranteed 5 star weapon you have to lose your 50/50 twice, which is astounding to me. I personally just don't think it's worth it and pretty much only appeals to whales.

He literally appeared some weeks ago in the summer event, but it seems it wasn't enough for my brain. I'm so happy to see him again. I might start to create new accounts just for the sake of replaying Mondstadt's chapters and listening to him lmao.
Some anon said that Venti's JP voice was shotabait or whatever, but tbh I love it. It's the perfect voice for him, it's soft, sweet, soothing… I love when Venti narrates a story, I feel like I could fall asleep to the sound of his voice, it's super relaxing.
I also love how he adores Mondstadt. Walking with Venti during his quest and seeing him listening intently to what Mondstadt people had to say about their dreams, hopes, etc. I could feel how understanding and accepting he was.
I adore him, I can't lie, if I lived in Teyvat I would be the most devoted nun at the cathedral, kek. Hope he has an important role in that Wine Festival in 3.1

Best part about genshin was definitely the Mondstadt chapters with Venti. Such a cozy vibe and the world felt so alive in a way? Now it feels like the plot and the world is a bit too much anime-y and none of the characters have such a lovable and well thought out personality like Venti, Kaeya etc. There was just so much more to the characters and the world in the early chapters than big bad neet with a tittle sword is actually a misunderstood god.
It’s also so annoying that the questions from the early chapters still haven’t been answered. It’s the only actually interesting plot points and mihoyo just ignores it. Varka, Kaeya and diluc’s relationship, Venti’s statue saying it’s a gateway to celestia, the abyss order attacking Mondstadt more than ever all of a sudden, Alice, Gold and lore about the only characters with ties to Khaenri’ah like Kaeya and Albedo etc. It’s all Mondstadt.

I have high hopes in the new region. The Harbingers will have more protagonism than before, and I think that's going to improve the writing a lot too.

Samefag but there is nothing deep or interesting about Kaeya, his mysterious nature is only because the writers for the game have to wait for the rest of the worlds to actually be made in order for his actual identity to be relevant. He’s clearly from Khaenri'ah, character’s testimony in game suggest he may be a spy or some shit from there, didn’t give the slightest fuck about Diluc’s father’s death (and neither should you), the only thing you need to know or give a shit about is that him and diluc don’t like each other, don’t want to fuck each other, and that your evasion of lore reality just to make two annoying faggots fuck in your love-dry romance of a life is sad.

That's true, I think the story will inevitably loop back to Mondstadt in the end. Every region will have some plot about the their national issues that the Fatui will have something to do with as the big bad and there will be some hints of travellers sibling and Dain, but nothing of substance until the very end of the story. The traveller isn't supposed to find out anything immediately, their sibling already went through all the nations and decided to go against Celestia, so the journey is just about finding out the same things. Maybe that Inteyvat in Lumine's hair means that there are some ties to Khaenri'ah, when googling it I saw for the first time that these flowers are also Inteyvats. I think there are also theories about Teyvat working in a cycle, so maybe after the last chapter everything gets reset and you're just walking through empty lands kek

It's a moid videogame company, they don't care about creating diverse characters that are important to whatever bullshit plot they use as an excuse to create their games, all they want is to have idiots spending money to peek under the skirt of an anime girl while also being able to look at her armpits.

That's kind of what I'm wondering about. How many blonde or blue haired waifus can they mash with random outfit themes that don't fit their personality at all until they are forced to start considering skintone in their colorschemes? They don't lose anything by having different skintones, it makes it possible to get more and easier distinguishable designs if anything. I find it strange that Xinyan and Dehya have basically the same theme and colors, do their moid designers have no imagination at all past pale waifus with thighspills or exposed belly buttons? They can't imagine a single other concept for a dark skinned woman?

I also doubt it. I don't get why they would make nations based on middle eastern or african(?) countries if they don't also take inspiration from the people living there.

You won't be forced to use anybody. Use one of the 40 anemo twinks and stfu.

All the 4 stars since 1.0 have sucked below c6. The only one who even becomes op at c6 is Gorou as the one-of-a-kind niche support he is. Anemo doesn't have any unturned stones.

Genshin's storytelling is just kind of confusing sometimes. You can only find out about Diluc and Kaeya's past if you read their character stories or the manga, in quests they might hint at it but don't say anything outright. Genshin does this a lot, like Signora being the Crimson Witch of Flames and her bossfight only making sense if you knew about the artifact lore already. Most character stories are never completely touched on, you can only read about it if you own the character

This is a pet peeve of mine with this game. They introduce characters with interesting storylines but then never finish it and just pump out basic characters who are anime tropes or give complex backstories to NPCs that are either going to die or we will never see again. The new characters backstories are also getting mediocre and predictable but I have some hope for Sumeru.

Thankfully they've redesigned Dottore's look and he's no longer an ugly clown, because I don't understand how people are even capable of feeling attraction to his old design nor prefer the old one over this. It feels like the people who are defending his old design have a specific headcanon of him and now that it no longer fits it, they've decided to lie to themselves and everybody around over how hideous his new design is - when he looked really childish in comparison to the other characters. He has a more mature and elegant vibe to him now and I'm glad they've decided to redesign him. He would've looked like an absolute fool in the middle of all the Harbingers with his old design. Imagine everybody looking really classy and evil, and then he's there with his pink bowtie and attire resembling the one of a gay magician from an isekai anime.

NTA, but I wouldn't mind a comically evil villain, most of the Fatui are already serious and/or mysterious. It would also make sense for him to act like that, since he's Teyvat's Voldemort in a sense and I bet making a lot of clones of himself is not good for his sanity.

>The Archons' gender was already set in stone. If you think otherwise, you're deeply delusional.
Nobody was arguing otherwise? The drama came from the dendro archon being corrected to a female after initial mistranslation (that for some reason persisted in every language with gendered pronouns, and it happened AGAIN with Arlecchino) and people realized the ratio was 5 to 2, not 4 to 3 making the only male archons Zhongli and Venti that we already know.
>That was from patch 2.4 and I'm pretty sure a bunch of female players didn't influence HYV's decisions much, unlike CCP.
Yeah? They were the ones that threatened to report them to CCP officials for indecent material because they were so pissed off about the sexualization of Shenhe and the lack of husbandos, thus inherently influencing their decisions. CCP might be filled with retarded conservatards but if you live in a dictatorship might as well play with the same rules as all the insecure moids crying about the boys being too pretty. There's no doubt Mihoyo will be throwing husbandos at female players to keep them happy since they're half of the entire userbase.

Was it though? Were those women more offended on Genshin tarnishing the general view on China? Even there, it's still ridiculed as a dumb erotic weeaboo game with icky Japanese influences so I'm willing to think conservatards were the ones with the most influence. That being said, it's a nice welcome since Genshin can be more gen and less niche for mobile players.

Genshin's the only gacha I currently play. I used to play Tales of Link, Tales of Crestoria (dropped after a few days lol, that shit was a buggy mess), Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, and Magia Record. Any time any of those games had PvP it was a fucking nightmare. Tales of Link locked a whole game mechanic behind PvP ranking events and you were essentially forced to use refreshes to get the top rewards. Brave Exvius' Dark Visions made me quit the game entirely, it was the same shit where unless you were a whale spending on every new banner there was absolutely no way to get reasonable rewards from it. Magia Record's PVP involved people building the most stally, irritating teams possible and wasting your time.

I've never seen a gacha actually do fun PVP. Maybe it's different with a real time combat system but I don't have a lot of hope the whales won't just roflstomp everyone else.

Mika is a dude, but he's from Mondstadt, not Sumeru. People are thinking Kaveh is a 4 because we've been shown so many 5s already and there's no way Scaramouche isn't a 5, but I guess even with all the 5s we've seen there aren't enough to fill up to 3.7, the last Sumeru patch. So there could be one or two more 5s they haven't shown us yet.

I would've been happy to play ToF even if it is a soulless clone just to have something to play during dead time in genshin, but from what I saw, the catering they give to any female audience is minuscule among the sea of higher tiers of moidery than anything genshin has present. Of the SSR characters only 3/10 are male, with 0 male SR characters. The Chinese servers have been out for a while now so they have more characters that have been added but only one of the characters they've added is a male character, it's for some collaboration and he looks like some western game character not a bishie. You can customize your own character to play as, but the outfit comparisons between the male and female player characters are downright laughable, almost every female outfit has cleavage, thighs, and stomach exposed or is fully skintight while only a couple of ~20 of the male outfits have any sexy elements to them at all. The only comparable game to genshin I see myself playing in the future is starrail. Every day I pray for a game targeted specifically to women that has actual gameplay mechanics, moids will cry when games like genshin pander to women at all but they have so many options for games that exclusively pander to them

I'm sad that Dehya is just going to be another tomboy that is "secretly into ~girly uwu~ things". I know this is a Chinese game, but can't they make a regular tough woman that likes battling and has a rough personality ffs? Everbody knows Dehya is a woman, you don't have to make her love cosmetics.

Hoetoverse is shit at writing female characters. Except for maybe five of them, all of the girls are either "tough/distant/serious/shy but secretly a soft waifu who wants fwends uwu" or "manic girl with her job as her only personality trait" .

I know, and I love her personality, but she's like… what, 3 out of 985 female characters that are waifus? Also, I feel like whenever Mihoyo makes a tomboy or a female character that is not a uwu girl they make sure her outfit is coomerish or revealing in a disgusting way. I liked Dehya because at least she wears regular shorts, her underwear isn't showing and her breasts aren't at risk of spilling out if she moves around too much. But they had to ruin her character by making her like cosmetics for no goddamn reason.
Reminds me of Xinyan and how she enjoys sewing and doing house chores, literally undermining all her struggles about her not being "ladylike" like her family wanted and all that "be yourself, don't pay attention to others expectations" preaching.

Pitiful. Genshin kicked the game off with 4 consecutive bishie male banners (excluding Klee) and heavily included them in the story, kept the female designs modest and made the game available on multiple platforms. And after the dregs of Inazuma and stupid Honkaibait like Shenhe and Yelan they're now starting Sumeru with like five confirmed male 5-star characters. I know we bitch about the ratio here all the time but it's still so, so much better than most gacha games around. That's why I want to keep supporting and pay for the male characters whenever I can, I couldn't imagine starting a gacha game with 3 male SSRs out of 10, acting like it's an acceptable ratio and that coomer waifushit is worth playing just for one attractive husbando.

>>230066

True. Nobody minds Shadow anon because she is also wholesome, sometimes she posts sonic and shadow pics on /m/ and you know it's her but nobody cares because it's whatever.
I agree that there's a particular ventifag itt that gets on my nerves, I would do anything for that retard to leave the thread. I wouldn't even be surprised if it turned out that that ventifag is a shotacon moid.
Btw, talking about wholesome anons itt, I remember a sperger in the early threads that would tag a bunch of posts and respond to all of them, her posts were literal bibles kek. I haven't seen anyone do that recently, it makes me sad because tbh she was really nice too.

Many people post Venti, he's a cute and popular character you just so happen to have a hateboner against. There isn't a singular Ventifag.
Not only is clownmode Dottore ugly and unpopular, but the anon obsessed with him literally refers to herself as "Dottore anon," keeps the thread open at all times to reply to any post mentioning her, 100% samefags, and carries this autism over to the discord server.

There was one weird Lumine poster I'm 99% sure got outed as the schizo tranny who's been running amok lately. He was outed as one of the main fujo haters and he has posted in this thread several times before. The Lumine sperg used to say "meds" or "meds now" often, phrases he likes to throw in his word salads, and they would make very incoherent posts related to the yume vs. fujo discourse. Both that Lumine sperg and the scrote who tried to get /v/ to raid us for complaining about the adult waifu designs (remember, schizo tranny has a femdom fetish so it makes sense for complaints about characters like Yelan and Beidou in particular to trigger him) were likely him in retrospect.

Her shorts/skirt thing are really ticking me off because nearly every fem character has a barely there crotch cloth, and for what? Moids might forget they're girls if they can't get a panty shot every .2 seconds? I know this is the closest a lot of them will ever get to women, but jesus they're pixels. Bitterness aside, something about her could be so cool! I could imagine her extremely protective of the women and girls of her all female village and she'd be a take-no-shit, "if you want to even breathe the same air as my girls you have to prove yourself worthy" type who has a wall up to outsiders but generally treats people how they deserve to be treated. She could even be programmed to treat Lumine and Aether diff based on sex, but the western fandom would probably riot.

No. 232054

>>232050
Shenhe is the ultimate waste, her character story was just the right kind of tragic and for once it wasn't a diligent worker waifu but a character that felt real with her personal ambitions and feelings. But the design, it just takes away all dignity she could've had. They should've just kept the first design she had instead of pornifying it for the final release. Yanfei was pretty good during the Chasm chapter too since she was interested in her surroundings in a way other than "this relates to my assigned hyperfixation". Kuki would've been so much better without her sole purpose being a pointless, condescending babysitter for Itto.

The current summer event just underlined how bad the writing for uninteresting most female characters are, Kazuha's story was about the tragic fall of their clan and how they all coped with it while Xinyan's and Fichl's domains were both about "being yourself uwu" and Mona's was just "boo hoo people think I'm a freak" I guess? I don't even know.

No. 232055

I think it's ironic how quickly people accepted tighnari and collei's relationship (and cyno's relationship with collei) as being a purely platonic one, but with kazuha and beidou they were hell bend on shipping them despite the circumstances being quite similar, a younger character being in the care of an older guardian. I really doubt kazuha is much older than collei, people were fooled about his voicelines larping about enjoying sake lol
Same thing with ayaka and ayato vs shenhe and chongyun, ayato is portrayed in fandom as a genuinely caring brother while shenhe is often portrayed as a posessive yandere, despite nothing in canon text indicating that. I know a lot of this stuff is started by coomers and shotacons who jerk off to tropey predatory big sisters, but it's still annoying to see

>Bennett has poor luck but he's a nice qt for the female audience

>Kazuha has the personality of a stale breadcracker without muh dead friend
>Xiao is an emo Sasuke type for underage twittards
>Xingqiu and BOOKS
>Scaramouche who is literally any anemo boy copypasted
And on and on. The only way they can milk male characters is to copypaste the same woob story over and over. I wonder how long they will last considering fans are sniffing copypaste just from the leaks, but the workalcoholic waifu has been ripped hard since the beginning, and the last outburst was during anniversary where we had to help Keqing over and over.

>>232068 is basically right, Kazuha doesn't have a personality beyond being in a homosexual relationship with his dead friend and *~le clan downfall~*.

You're reaching hard with many of your examples kek. Yeah characters like Bennett, Razor or Heizou are kinda there and they have the same issues, but at least they aren't dressed like thots on onlyfans. Xingqiu and Chongyun have a cute dynamic and aren't shilled so much anyway. Kazuha's thing with his clan has been repeated a lot, but he also had the story with his friend and he is involved a bit in the main quest when going to Inazuma. You may not like the emo stories and muh dead friends, but at least it's something more than "I'm hardworking uwu and shy/cheerful/tsundere".
The workaholic waifus are still here, Nilou and Candace seem to be like that as well. Kek at you mentioning Yae and Yelan when they're just ara ara mommy milker waifus instead of workaholic ones.

Kokomi's thing with her position has been repeated a lot, but she also had the story with her people and she is involved a bit in the main quest when going to Inazuma. You may not like the "a day in the life of waifu X stories, but at least it's better than artificially inflating softboi 2874599 with a sob story.

I could do the same since most boys here sound too much like generic moids (another IRL reference kek). Also said mommy milker waifus still had better stories than the traveler helping Keqing to relax. Nearly every character stories involve talking to NPCs anyway.

right??? it was so fucking tedious! puzzles either cryptic or easy but took forever to input the solution, disorienting domains with no maps, being forced to teleport every 2 seconds to fulfill fetch quests, a story consisting of recycled character bios told in typical longwinded genshin style that could turn the most interesting story of all time sound into a snoozefest, crappy main cast, and bugs everywhere. sorry for sperging but that damn slave labor event reached unseen levels of gayness.

How did you not finish the event when you had a whole month almost. You can just skip through the dialog, and I used online guides for some of the puzzles, used the online map to track the treasures. Free primos are worth it.

Now to wait for the update to download to see how pretty Sumeru is.

I also saved it for the last day, just couldn't be bothered. I think going back to those islands gave me a feeling of "I've already done this" which makes it seem like a chore to explore them again. And this exploration did feel like a chore. I managed to do the huge quests earlier, but it really felt like every one of them took more than an hour and just wouldn't end, even though there was barely anything happening. The island designs are interesting as a concept but Mona's was the only fun one to me for some reason. Fischl's island is the worst timesink of all time and those fucking ravens made me insane. I hope they get a better idea for 3.8 and don't recycle that location again

I've been thinking about this recently because I noticed that after playing one or two quests or doing dailies I didn't feel like going through anything else, even though I was obsessed with the story and open world and would play for hours every day when I started back in 1.1. I honestly think the issue is the gacha aspect of making you come back every day to spend resin and collect daily primos. That makes opening the game into a daily chore and sours the mood regarding everything else. The writing also hasn't been very interesting lately, so I'm skipping through boring dialogues for an hour just to get a quarter of a pull. But all the upcoming characters look ugly as fuck and underwhelming to me, so I'm really just saving and spending time to get some future character that hasn't even been revealed yet. And events have become longer and longer, all of them now have a fucking storyline and attached quests where you need to talk to some random NPC. If they are about fighting something or domains you'll have to repeat the same shit 3 or 5 times just to get all the points or achievements because they need to create some way to make you play longer. I've personally been getting annoyed with exploration because the puzzles have become tedious. Sometimes they don't give any hint to what the player is supposed to do, so I need to pull up some tutorial online and it makes me feel stupid and takes the fun out because I couldn't do it on my own. The chasm was the most fun I've had in Genshin for a long time, the upper region was beautiful and there were no issues solving anything. I hope Sumeru will feel similar

It used to be fun and interesting, now it's just boring fetch events, shit writing, NPCs talking and talking and talking and the very few interesting characters stay on screen for 20 minutes and then you have to wait for the next time they'll come up (which is after half a year). Genshin's writing has become really bad and you could see it in this summer event too.
Annoying as fuck puzzles, having to teleport a hundred times, some rewards being available only after you do random shit n.40 (had to play through the entirety on Xinyan's nonsensical quest to get that one fucking conch) and overall reused location. It's just a chore at this point. Diluc's event could have been interesting but we got literal crumbs.

I don't play Genshit at all but know about it because of friends who play it and as a North African I was almost tempted to download it just for the new characters. The rep I get in the country I was born and raised in is some of the most insulting shit ever, things you described or just documentaries, so it's nice seeing that for once there's none of that here and instead there's just cute bishonen with fennec ears or whatever. I also liked that in some other JPRGs that are unrelated but have characters inspired by ancient Egypt or surrounding regions, I'd rather have that than another "qu'est ce qu'on a fait au bon dieu" sequel. I'm still not gonna play it because I'm trying to avoid gacha in general.

The puzzles were crap, even with guides they were ungodly time consuming, I barely got any enjoyment out of most of them. Some of them were fine but most were, as said, nonsensical and tedious. The main quest was too long and it took me forever to finish, sailing between islands that didn't have warp points was annoying as fuck. And speaking of sailing, the boat challenges were boring and they were the only challenges we got. The musical note puzzles weren't hard, they were just annoying. I feel like the islands didn't really encourage exploring as the rewards were locked behind two long quests and the domains weren't that inventive either.

I appreciated Inazuma's gloomy atmosphere and the islands were really fun to explore with interesting puzzles, but the entire region was plagued with unnecessary fetch quests blocking you from exploring it properly. All of the islands had the annoying thunderstorms, the lightning trees, the poisonous effect in the mines which took days to get rid of, Tsurumi with the mist etc. Seirai required me to spend copious amounts of time on clearing the thunderstorms only to be rewarded with an island that had next to nothing to do on it, at least Tsurumi had an interesting world quest attached to the entire process that felt fulfilling to complete. It would've been fine if it was only maybe Tsurumi and some of the main islands but I felt like I didn't get to properly enjoy the maps because I was too busy dodging lightning bolts to appreciate them. Thank fucking god they chilled with Sumeru, I was half expecting them to apply the withering effect to the entire map right from the get-go.

Its better to use childe with dendro mc. You have a few team options. If you just want bloom you can use as the other 2 slots another hydro character and someone like kazuha or sucrose. For hyper bloom use an electro character like fischl and the last slot can be another electro character or again kazuha. You can also try fridge, that is freeze with dendro. So childe, 2 cryo characters and dendro mc. Vid related has some pretty good explanation on new team comps.

Dehya was nice, I was a bit annoyed at the bit about makeup because it sounded like too much like "I-it's not that I like it or anything" unlike how Xinyan just says that she likes girly shit and that's it.

This is how you guys are talking about nahida. Every single character in this game is sexualized. In the context of the story her tiny stature makes sense because she hasn't fully grown as an archon and her powers aren't fully developed + it makes her look like a wood fairy. She genuinely loves her people and wants to help them, even if they don't give a shit about her, she just happens to very weak in comparison to the average archon. No matter how you look at it her character is still heaps better than raiden who is just a schizo obsessed with "muh eternity".

Everyone at least here on Lolcow knows she's pedobait, nobody is fooled by the "she's just a cute baby" mask. But I have to admit that at Nahida didn't give me gross vibes at all because she wasn't played off as the innocent helpless little girl like so many other pedobait loli characters but instead a relatively mature and knowledgeable archon. I actually feel like Klee and Qiqi are way more likely to be sexualized by scrotes.

I understand her lore that she’s technically a “newborn deity” and doesn’t have her full-fledged powers yet but it just leaves a very bad taste in my mouth, it really makes you think who they’re really trying to appeal to and the implications aren’t looking very positive right now.

its a good idea to build your mc, im still upset i chose lumine instead of aether. I dont hate her design, i guess its better then a lot of other female characters but now i prefer aether his design. Hopefully in the future we can switch main characters. Very cute fan art btw.

NTA but I'm pretty sure it's based on the amount of search results when you google "(character name) hentai" as it says "by google search volume". Male characters are low because traditionally they're more popular in BL and hentai is usually used to refer to female solo or straight porn. Venti being this high is because scrotes love to draw big titty genderbent fanart of him in order not to feel too insecure about their sexuality for liking a male character.

Besides men being disgusting and googling Klee porn I actually find it funny that despite all the shilling not even coomers give a shit about barbara or ayaka kek

Too lazy to tag the other anon but Klee is loved by women because she actually resembles and acts like a child character and isn’t dressed provocatively. She also has a cute dynamic with her foster brother and her actual mom, Alice, those kinds of things appeal to women’s socialized interests of caregiving and emotionally attached relationships. Scrotes consuming media do not invest in these in-depth interests, they consume media like how zoomers buy shein and end up throwing it away very expendable. It’s obvious when the waifus in these games are all wearing heels, showing their armpits for the armpit fetish fags, tits were too large and had to be patched, wearing revealing clothing when their archetype is to be a ‘scientist’ or ‘religious woman’ or some shit, they had to update three characters in the game and fix their outfits because allegedly a Chinese feminist group were reporting them to some gov agency for indecency idk. I’ve not yet seen one female character in Genshin that gets to look like Tighnari or some shit where her entire body is not the focus. These characters are obviously WAIFUBAIT for the XY nerds who eat this shit up and as we all mnow a current trend in otaku culture is pretending an innocent child that is clearly 5 years old is a magical, omnipotent and omniscient being that is actually 5000 years old. Men are creeps and I hope they all fucking die. Also picrel is making me slightely kek with her big head ass

Finished the main quest, sorta annoyed I got spoiled but it was OK.
Obviously the Academy is evil and it will probably involve the Fatui. Surprised the girl didn't die, wonder if she will get cured when we inevitably cure Collei.
I love how Dori speaks in Japanese, it's really lively. Alahaitham is hot, but what we saw of him was rather boring.

Reddit makes me ill. This leak gets posted and of course the comments are nothing but unfunny raiden MILF and shinji jokes. It reeks so strongly of porn addicted moid brainworms it makes twitter's fakeboi headcanons look innocent by contrast. Even though most of these guys have mommy issues of their own, they still can't empathize because their absolute emotional retardation inhibits their ability to understand why he wouldn't cope with them by living as an unwashed waifu game playing incel with a MILF/oneeshota fetish the same way they did. Concentrated scrote juice.

Need Raiden, Yae, and all their simps to kill themselves fr. They're the only Genshin characters that thoroughly disgust me and their popularity alone keeps me away from the community. I'll accept Scara becoming sad anemo twink number 82629981 if it means we don't have to sit through an unwarranted heart-to-heart between him and either one of those autistic manchildren Frankenstein'd into the bodies of big booba anime women.

She's literally bimbofication fetish personified and that's probably why so many trannies love her. The game never punishes her for being a selfish bitch either, at least Zhongli said that if Liyue was in actual danger of falling during Osial's attack he would've stepped in to save everyone.

genshin feels super emptier… chests don't respawn, no horses, the enemies, animals, and npcs are limp and lifeless, it's uglier (and I don't want to hear the mobage excuse because the switch is an overpriced low end android tablet. the reason genshin isn't on switch is because the switch can't run it.), no shield surfing or motorcycle, no cool dragons, the generic coomer gacha companions are less expressive than qt link and their abilities feel clunky, and more. exploring just isn't half as fun.

Can't believe I'm defending BOTW. But Genshin has Artifact RNG, mindless as fuck combat, there are also puzzles you can't do in the rain like the fire totems, and the game will trap you in what feels like an endless dialogue cycle where Paimon just repeats every other word characters say. "Befriending" characters is a stretch because said characters just effortless trust and like the Traveler regardless of what you do. Also it's a gacha game, so characters and quest are locked behind either a paywall or time-gated. Shit like weapons, lore and story important events are locked behind time-limited questlines, so if you miss one(say Albedo's sword) you're fuck out of luck.

Also, I heard he'll be a dps and I already use Razor as my main and I'm extremely loyal to my son, but I'll put them both on the same team and see how that goes. They'll be the bzzzt boys.

Artist had a gimmick with just having Genshins next to animals. Good luck with Cyno, but it might be a pipedream to fit Razor due to double main DPS. I know the feeling myself with a few characters.

You can make any team work in overworld nonnie! With dendro added you can also build Razor EM and give him thundering fury or that new artifact set!

Oh, I'm sleep deprived and retarded kek. I'd rather kill myself than use the food bitch, though. I wish the game would give us a cute guy that serves her role, even if he didn't end up as OP as Xiangling.

Same, I hate her voice in any language and her idles makes me want to die. I thought Thoma was supposed to be like her but a hot guy?
