Starting the thread off right.

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.
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

Technically, she's just a young girl that's LARPing, so I think it's natural to find her super annoying.
Yeah I can't blame her for being super annoying. Doesn't make me hate her any less though kek>>223786
Ez skip for me as well, although I wouldn't mind Bennett and Barb cons. I just don't want to ruin my pity for Tighnari.
This event made me appreciate both Mona and fischl, I still don't use them because I have better characters, but their personalities got a tiny bit more deep than the>hurr durr she's poor
And >hurr durr she's edgy
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"
File: 1658462322598.png (965.47 KB, 943x908, hug the xinyan.PNG)
Hard agree, you can tell Hoyo played favorites tbh
I don't give a shit because I'm not having an hyperautistic fixation on outfits and moids don't live rent-free in my head even when I turn the game on.
Fischl is mostly famous in the fandom for her chuuni quirk which can be a hit or miss.
It's hard to find a character who isn't >muh quirk>muh work>muh dead friend>muh cliche sad past
The writing isn't stellar for most of them.
Which makes Xinyan's realm an insult because it can't be that hard to make a music inspired stage with rocks and sticks. When the fire flower said>omg just go to the music hall
I expected something interesting and actually bright because of Xinyan's one note personality but it was just another basic stage like from any other mission we have done in the past.
I really love Mona and she deserves none of the unnecessary sexualization and retarded dialogue about her skimpy outfit being torn off for a stupid gag. It pisses me off to no end to see scrotes treating her as just a piece of ass or a joke with her starving magician shtick.>>223831
You say this "they're all badly written mihoyo just sucks at writing in general!!!!" shit every time a waifu is criticized for not having her full potential utilized. Just because you can't appreciate the better written characters and only want to coom to them doesn't mean others are as retarded.

I agree, their vibes are cute
Nta but>Just because you can't appreciate the better written characters
Kek "they're all badly written mihoyo just sucks at writing in general!!!!" is correct, if you think otherwise you need to consume any piece of media that isn't
Genshin Impact. It is a crappy coomer game, you are humiliating yourself by saying "its totes super deep and well written when u give it a chance!!!" I'm not appreciating bad characters just because Eula makes them look better.
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>theres some customization in the housing system but all it is is assets ripped directly from the overworld, with strict limitations and no color customization.
>if you like bad anime, playing through the story is like a bad anime that often asks you to run 10 steps away from you or fight a few weak mobs in between the cringey dialog. the characters are flat, tropey messes to bait fanfic writers and doujin artists.

It's definitely better looking than that hellhole named Inazuma. Seriously, what the hell were they thinking while designing Inazuma? The only place that wasn't a complete eyesore was the shrine of the cats.

imagine a crackship being more popular and more pandered to than the self inserts one. very sad. childe will sadly die before the traveler is able to reach first base but thankfully he had enough drunk gay seggs with his reverse sugar daddy zhongli for one lifetime in liyue arc ♥ signora pats the empty space in her big casket

Zero interaction since 1.1
Zero concern from Childe to Zhongli
Zhongli living his life in Liyue while Childe is striving on that battle spirit
He keeps running into us but we're doing him golden favors despite his actions
Zhongli's most intense homosexual desire was with Azhdaha
Zhongli's last appearance was with the Chasm quest where he saved Xiao (not Childe)
Childe guaranteed to resurface in Sumeru

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.
Chilumi vs Chilther is the good old yumejo vs fujo wars. Absolutely pointless since Childe looks at the traveler the same.
File: 1658653786117.jpg (1.38 MB, 2121x3000, 20220720_074217.jpg)
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?>>224260
actually the canon traveler is aether! lumine is in the abyss. maybe she could have been a pedofork at chile when he fell in as a kid but he said he dont know her.
Holy cringe. Good thing I don't listen to Zhongchitards and their delusional headcanons.>>224271>trolling
Bold of you to assume she isn't serious like Zhongchifujos and makes up shit that don't exist, like all of them.
my friend is a kpop fan
and she developed an armpit and feet fetish somehow
I don't care who is canon for Hoyo, I prefer Lumine as the traveler and in my gameplay universe she is the mc that interacts with others and is looking for her twin brother. Genshin isn't the first game that has two MCs and only one is shown in promos/is canon.
Every time there's a lot of new posts it's either ship fight or muh canon traveler comments.

But I like all of them even if Menogias is just discount Zhongli
They’re really bland. At least Tomo and Ei’s friends had decent designs.
Delusional himejos were really saying hydro and pyro lady looked better than Xiao lmao
no surprise there cuz those nlogs also shill honkai. those two look like steven universe/lore olympus rejects at best. purple guy look like a 12 year olds deviantart bnha oc. hate shenhe and eula too but they look much better than that. the blue ones bodysuit would look equally as horny as shenhes if she was in game. but then the rest of her design is worse.
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
holy shit that game has some of the worst designed characters i've ever seen, everything is a cluttered mess, I can barely tell them apart from each other
and i agree with the second point, I always thought xiao's story is very generic edgefest
File: 1658730479939.jpg (5.35 MB, 3072x4096, FWSiCaEXwAMshGX.jpg)
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.

File: 1658736319783.jpg (55.81 KB, 640x548, jq26afc2ski71.jpg)
The pulls are really expensive. You can't even guarantee a 5 star if you pay 100$, which is crazy to me.>>224451
That's why though. It's pandering and bad writing. You don't pay money for the story or game itself but for the characters, so they have to pander to the tastes of the players as much as possible
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.

What character got you guys into Genshin, if any? For me it was Venti.
That and the way they're ripping into the story too. That gave me /v/ibes or /a/ edgelords trying to shit up any anime discussion thread.
Sure GI doesn't have stellar writing but it's not godawful either. In fact I'm surprised at the quality given how this is a gacha mobile game.

Definitely Kaeya, I kept seeing art of him everywhere so I decided to play, then I got Diluc and that made me stay.
I don't know, maybe because we've been playing for longer and are getting sick of it never improving? do you know what kind of website lolcow.farm is? people are going to criticize your crummy special interest game, and you will probably join us once the lenses on your rose tinted glasses get smudged up too.
>In fact I'm surprised at the quality given how this is a gacha mobile game
genshin players with zero experience with and thus zero expectations for gacha writing putting it on a pedestal will never not be embarrassing>>224465
reddit males are the only ones who whiteknight it though
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.
File: 1658760838956.jpg (266.64 KB, 899x1200, FIcl6bBXsAEoUT_.jpg)
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.>>224467
I like how the lore unfolds in Genshin and how a lot of it is found through exploration. Enkanomiya is entirely optional but you miss out on so much if you don't go down there, for instance. >>224483
I don't bother interacting with the fans because 90% of them get into retarded arguments and fight. I look at pretty art and play the game solo, talking about it with some irl friends who also play.

Honestly I'm kinda disgusted by venti. He is everything I dislike, a trap-lite femboy with an "ehe" smug troll attitude. And not only does he look like a moid's wet dream, but he is also a typical effeminate pervert (you know that part where he basically strips mona). I really can't take him seriously, he's probably the most scrote-like male character in this game
Further evidence that Dilucfags are the only female Genshinfags who can compete with actual moids in the the shittest taste competition.

If you're a…
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.
Aetherfag: you're either super vanilla or a narcissist or both. I don't make the rules.
Sorry, I didn't know what to say about Kazuhafags or Albedofags. I haven't run into any of them, really.

I hate Japanese/English voice over Venti. Jp is shotabait femboy garbage and English makes him come across like a retarded cartoon character. Chinese Venti is adorable and actually sounds like an archon.
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.
Ventifags just wanna have fun
Zhonglifags know next to nothing about him as a character they just think he's sexy.
I love Scaramouche and you just described me to a T but I regret absolutely nothing.>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

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.
he is the most generic, insufferable fag out of all of them with zero interesting qualities to make up for it. I don't give a rat's ass that he's an ~empath~ beneath the edgelord exterior, in fact it only makes me more annoyed. mihoyo unintentionally made him a near perfect recreation of the type of man vidrel is about.
>he isn't as bad as the fandom makes him seem.
IQ bellcurve, anon. he's worse.
If you want to talk about generic maybe take a glance at literally any of the waifus.
You're just mad because Diluc isn't a one note character and that he has actually done important shit in the story that isn't running errands for random NPCs.
diluc is the only male character on par with the average waifu personality wise. he's like male ayaka.
>he has actually done important shit in the story that isn't running errands for random NPCs
indeed, he ran errands for venti that one time in 1.0. kokomi had a more important role in the story kek.

This actually makes me wish Diluc would come home. He seems so soft and kind despite it all and I'm a sucker for it kek
Might not role much for him then. Maybe just yolo 10 roll.
I was wondering when they'd add more charas to the standard pool.

Unpopular opinion: I think her little elf/fairy-type design is cute, but I FUCKING HATE that she's yet another little girl who's going to be sexualized by degen scrotes. I wish I were a child again myself so that I didn't have to automatically think about this kind of shit while trying to enjoy playing a game.

Who should I build now? I need more dps.
DPS: Diluc (Pyro DPS), Heizou (works as a Swirl driver, use him with Kaeya or Beidou/Yae for example to deal Elemental reactions), Razor (Physical DPS), Keqing or Yae (Electro DPS).
You really need a Hydro character, tho. Hope you manage to get Xingqiu soon.
ooh ok, AYRT, I thought you were a new player.
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.
>>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.
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.
File: 1659142956710.png (278.8 KB, 492x917, tighnaristandard.PNG)
seriously hoping picrel isn't true, I'll probably roll anyway since my standard luck is terrible and I have all the standard banner characters BUT Diluc (my fave), but while I'd certainly rather get Tighnari cons than Qiqi or Keqing cons, adding another character to the standard pool is only gonna make my chances of getting Diluc lower…why can't they give us standard banner epitome invocation? That's been what I've asked for on every survey since the weapon banner introduced it

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. Older characters like Keqing does not get a big enough boost from dendro compared to already existing theorycrafted teams.
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.
On the other hand, some of the newer world quests have been pretty good. I definitely cared for and liked Hanachirusato, Ruu, Lyudochka, and Tsumi. So maybe there is some hope.
I feel the same, I hate him even more than I hate Paimon.>>225380
I agree she's very ugly. I think people just like her for the tan skin tbh.

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
File: 1659475706278.jpg (81.47 KB, 1268x398, FZKqw6JXgAEqhME.jpg)
I can read, retard, but this>due to diluc's past trauma he acts like an edgelord but his behaviour towards kaeya is just him being a tsundere
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.
Take your meds fujo. This is why the traveler keeps being shilled.>>226399
She got better with the meta but before you summon her you need to understand she's not meant to be an AOE. Too bad her burst sucks. At least Hu Tao's understandable.
They need to release a design for Varka already or make other characters interact more with each other, I don't want to see the incest shit with Diluc and Kaeya anymore>>226415>>226421

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.
Okay, I'm convinced, it has to be the schizo troon. That word salad above can't be anyone but that ugly faggot. >>226630

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.
File: 1659595552544.jpg (416.53 KB, 1448x2048, 20220804_084625.jpg)
At least yumejos don't accuse anybody who is into bland moids eyeing each other to be scrotes. I'm sorry the non-fujos don't match your -20/10 vision.
File: 1659597294288.png (8.19 MB, 2048x1448, FYkk0dFWYAA92P0.png)
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.

I'm attempting to get a C0 Tighnari and a Cyno (unsure of whether I want cons or not rn). After that I think I only want Al-Haitham unless Dehya has a ridiculously good kit. Maybe Baizhu? Depends on what his kit is like. I wanted Scaramouche when everyone thought he was going to be an electro catalyst but since the leaks that say he's pretty much going to be a different character apart from having a vaguely similar hat I lost interest, I don't need another anemo boy.
Aw im sorry anon, better luck next time. Atleast you can buy bennet constellations when he's in paimons shop. >>226858
I also want cyno but im not sure about getting tighnari yet because i heard rumours that he will eventually be included in standard banner. I think he's very cute tho, his idle animations especially. I think i will decide after i have played his trial and see if i like his gameplay. I have all anemo characters and im disappointed scara will be one also. However all anemo characters have a pretty fun/interesting gameplay and kit so maybe if scara plays really fun i will get him.>baizhu
Oh i almost forgot about him, i wonder when he will finally get a banner. I like his design and hope that they will use his snake in some way.
Baizhu is gonna be a healer though, kinda sucks.
I feel the same way about Scaramouche. I genuinely don’t need a new anemo boy. If he’s Kazuha level of meta I’ll pull but otherwise I don’t see the point gameplay wise. Enough anemo boys already. Hoping that Cyno’s kit is good too to make up for his shitty element.
File: 1659602062831.jpg (257.31 KB, 1092x1380, Baizhu.full.3275140.jpg)
Yesss! I've been wanting Baizhu for so long, I don't really care that he's a healer, I mean, I've always expected that to be the case since he works at a pharmacy and all that. My only hope is that he'll be a good Dendro applier as well.
As for Scara, I'm totally disappointed that he's Anemo as well. I hope they just don't ruin a character people got attached to for being an Electro bastard. Plus, my Xiao's already built and I don't need another Anemo DPS.
a larping moid, he keeps outing himself with his certain giveaway quips and really forced "how do you do fellow girls" type lack of integration. Anons should assume that anyone ragging on fujos or yumes while pretending to be either or accusing them of being men/trannies and sperging about "misogyny" is most likely the scrote and ignore&report without interaction. I just hope the mods would delete his posts because it's ridiculous and they used to do it in the past but now I guess they have their hands full with the schizotranny spamming the entire site.>>226819
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.

When I used her I built her as a physical DPS with 2x Pale Flame and 2x Bloodstained Chivalry for a sweet 50% boost in physical dmg. I also paired her with Xingqiu for the vaporize reaction with her skill.I have no idea if this is a good build but I like to think it's decent

This so much, I'm rolling and building all the bishies, meta can't stop me. My dream is to make two Abyss husbando teams once they release enough male characters.
Plus, we really need more male healers, right now we only have Bennett… (and Heizou if you give him Prototype Amber, kek)>>226900
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.

samefag, but I forgot to say the game glitches sometimes and your characters don't change their expression once they return to idle mode/cast their skills/etc. Happened to me the other day with Razor, he had his mouth open and looked angry (like picrel). I guess he casted his Elemental Skill and kept wearing the same expression for the rest of the fight. Good glitch for photoshoots tho, kek.

>>226905>My dream is to make two Abyss husbando teams once they release enough male characters.
GL Nonna! Who do you have on your team so far?
>Building Xinyan is tricky basically because… she doesn't have an optimal set.
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.
And thanks Nonna, that explains it! Yeah they're pretty funny, I usually only get them with Venti though kek.
>>226900>her character trial shows her with a 4pc noblesse oblige
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. >>226880
Yeah i wouldnt mind a healer either. The only healers i have are bennet, jean and diona. But i almost never use diona since she doesnt fit any team comps. >>226885
So you think he will provide a shield as well? That would be neat.
>>226909>GL Nonna! Who do you have on your team so far?
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.

Godspeed Nonna, go get your husbando abyss team, I'm rooting for you
I'm also trying to build husbando only abyss teams, we need more male healers, so far I have for my first team: Diluc, Xiao, Diona and Zhongli. And for my second team: Ayato, Kaeya, Bennet and Venti.
I honestly can't get the 3 stars on the 10th and 11th floors because I'm pretty sure I'm not building them properly but right now I just want to level up all of my guys' talents to level 10, then I will focus on the artifacts because whenever I get shitty ones I want to send angry letters to mihoyo with mail clippings.
thank u nonita, you are a sweetheart, may you win all your 50/50.>>226925
It's nice to see more anons going for a full husbando abyss team! I wish you good luck! If you need any help with builds you can always ask here.>I honestly can't get the 3 stars on the 10th and 11th floors
Idk your builds or anything, but on 10th floor I run Thoma, Childe and Ayato on first half, Kaeya and Zhongli second half. You can replace Thoma with Diluc, and Childe with Xiao, I guess?
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.>>226920
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.>>226925
Its smart to grind for talent books first yeah because grinding for artifacts can take forever depending on your luck.
I like all your teams and I think I use the same characters as you, except for the Itto team because I don't have him.>We also dont have enough male electro characters so i have build fischl and beidou for electro charged team comps
Same, I built Fischl because I like her and her C6 is so good, but it's insane that we only have one (1) electro male character (not counting Aether). May Cyno save husbando enjoyers.>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.
People say he will shine in Burgeon comps, compared to Xiangling. I don't how or why though, but I'm not complaining, kek.

I have an Unforged and had the pieces for a Bolide set lying around as well as an excellent physical damage goblet so I gave her 4 piece Bolide set. 2x Pale Flame and 2x Bloodstained is probably better though, I just didn't feel like more farming.

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.
since I'm feeling authoritative this morning, here's my review and semi tier list for each of the male characters
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.

Good runs, I also respect you, but you really are autistic, an obnoxious autist. The worst kind. I wish you stop playing this "crappy game" soon, so you leave us alone for once. Your "tierlist" is basically picrel. I'm gonna stick with my Kaeya freeze team that carried me through Hidden Strife Dire Straits, thank you.

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.
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
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.
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.
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.

Mwah thank you anon!! I’ve been eyeing Ayato already so I’ll definitely pull him next but I’ll try the teams you recommend in the meantime! Never knew I could put Kaeya/Chongyun instead of a hydro character in a national team.

>>227038>and you said yourself you are struggling with your kaeya freeze team in abyss
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.

Nonnas! What character/s are you currently saving for and how many Primos/wishes do you currently have saved for them?
I'm wishing for either Baizhu or Scaramouche when they eventually come out and I have around 41 wishes, I've only begun saving recently.
Nilou/Cyno and Nahida. For Nilou and Cyno it's gonna depend on their kits. I don't mind having another electro DPS alongside Raiden and Yae. On the other hand I'm kinda lacking in hydro units after Childe.
For Dendro characters, if I summon Nahida, Al-Haitam and Baizhu, I'll be happy.
i roll for the guys that look appealing to me and skip all girls

Good luck saving for Scara, anon!
I'm gonna pull for Tighnari, I have a guaranteed and 180 wishes (plus 56 emergency wishes I can buy with Starglitter). After that, I'll try to get Cyno and then Scara. I think I'm going to buy a Welkin soon so I can get enough primos, because I also want to pull for Childe's weapon when he reruns again. Hopefully he reruns alongside Scara, so the other weapon is Scara's future BiS.
I also want Baizhu, Al-Haitham and Dehya, but we don't know their release dates, so I'm not worried about them (yet).>>227319

Nonna, I'm literally triggered
by their design since they remind me of how moids see us as rapedolls. I can't stand playing as a female character because I don't want to be seen as someone taking dicks for free when I'm walking in the street, unlike Genshin's summonable whores.

Same, I honestly like all of the guys, they're pretty cool. I mostly like the 4 star girls like Yunjin, Ningguang and Xinyan, the 5 stars are too boring/forgettable/ugly to my liking, Ganyu's climbing gimmick is funny but I honestly wouldn't pull for her, specially if there's any guy on the rerun banner.
I may pull for Dehya even if she really is a 5stars because she's like an adult version of Xinyan.

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?!
WHY would mihoyo dump such important lore in not only a limited time event but also at a place where NOBODY would see it?! The treatment of male characters is so fucked up, this is more important than any lore from the summer event.
Call me a moid but this is how I feel. None of the female characters are appealing and they're all parading around like lowlife skanks. I hate it.>>227370
This! Wish they woould put more Kaeluc moments instead of animating Sluthe or whatever her name was. Same as Skanlan or the fox bitch (I forgot her name).

I'm glad the put this information though, that means everyone that has any sort of reading comprehension will understand that Diluc doesn't hate Kaeya, they're just awkward and too busy to be all over each other.
>>227370>The treatment of male characters is so fucked up, this is more important than any lore from the summer event.
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. >>227372
Right I love it, it’s one of my favorites!

>>227419>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.
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.

His cute ears are so cute that I love him and I want to see them flopping around when he moves, his tail is also cute and I also want to see it flopping around while making him run around. He also makes me think of these, emo characters that I used to like in highschool.

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.>>227443
Your cat is adorable!>>227424
I'm on the fence about him, but I love his ears and like >>227427
said, I love animal hybrid boys. And his idle animations are adorable.
Seeing his official illustration leaked put me off a little bit, but IMO I think he looks much much better in game.

They’re releasing nendos of both of my favorite characters at the same time. My wallet is crying
Mine too. I don't want Xiao but I'll need to get Zhongli so it's still getting pricey.
Hopefully they all release some time apart like Venti.

IMO, I'm on the fence about Tighnari but if I don't end up pulling him then ez skip for the 5 stars. I'll definitely end up pulling for Dori though.

Do these cunts want money or not
On the other hand, you might not get him in the next two years.
Talking from experience, I'm a day one player with no Diluc, C2 Jean and C1 Mona. And also F2P, so praying to lose my 50/50s to Diluc is kind of a double-edged sword, and building pity on Standard banner is hell (plus there are 5* weapons in the pool).
Do what you want and don't pull for Tighnari if you don't like him that much, but you won't have to wait 2 years for a new Zhongli rerun if you skip him, kek.
Thanks for the suggestions, anons! Tbh, this is me >>227397
so maybe I’ll test my luck and try to go for both. Kek as for the overworld exploration aspect, Kazuha has helped me with that SO much. I just hit his E and run away from the annoying slimes caught in his anemo pull.

If that's you, maybe you are lucky and you get two 5 stars (the featured and a standard one) in a row or smth, lol.
I'm the opposite of you, I almost always win my 50/50s, but I have to spend 70-80 wishes to get the 5*.
Anyway, good luck anon!!

Talking about Venti, I started a new account and oh god, I didn't realize how much I miss Venti all the time kek. 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
(I know that the posts above me are just bait, I'm not really answering them I just wanted to get this off my chest. Sage for retarded sperging.)
remember to ignore&report the scrote nonnas>>228181
I feel this so much anon, it was such a tease for him to be involved briefly with the summer event and then disappear for the rest of the time. I love his jp voice too, it's very unique and somehow manages to capture his essence perfectly. He's a troublemaker who loves freedom but deep down he's a wise god who knows more of the world than the traveler and keeps surprising us with his insight.

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.

But anon there’s a million videos about building and theorycrafting every single character on YouTube. There’s even subreddits for min-maxing every character in the game, and if you despise both YouTube and Reddit, there’s hoyolab with several threads about character builds. It’s retarded for us to repeat information that is available everywhere if you google. And even if you’re retarded and want to be spoonfed, some anons help like autist-chan.
Yesterday we had a bunch of discussions about Kaeya lore. It’s not only infighting if you actually contribute to the thread instead of complaining like you’re doing now.
I agree with your post, Mondstadt chapters and Dainsleif interludes have always given us the most info about Teyvat and the cataclysm. I feel like Sumeru will have an interesting storyline as well, because we'll be involved with the Akademiya, which is tied to Lisa and Dottore (who has experimented with Archon residue on humans). 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.>>228191>I want anons to talk about WHAT I WANT!!1!1! REEEEEEEEEE

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

I can't wait to have him so I can make him sit in cute places to take pictures of him.
Also, is anyone else salty because you couldn't take pictures of your favorite characters on top of Mona's island? I almost had the perfect picture to make it my pc's wallpaper but Diluc had to fall while I was trying to fix his position.
Has anyone tried to go up there again? It's the place that you reach following a star that leads you to a luxurious chest.
I've been doing everything to go back there but I think it may have been a one time thing -insert sad emoji-.
I've never applied for beta testing, to be honest. I don't know what they ask you in the form or what they are looking for, but I've never tried to get in because I feel like I would do a bad job at giving feedback, kek. Good luck, tho, I hope they choose you.

It's dumb to expect that mihoyo will create more dark skinned characters than what we're getting.
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.
Maybe we would get a bit more diverse skin tones on Natlan, and I doubt it's going to happen.
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?>>228265
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. The argument that some people in those countries are pale doesn't even matter because it's all fictional anyway. They must have the shittiest artists working on characters, it would at least explain why the recent ones have been so uninspired kek

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

Probably because of the 2.6 extension I think
And if that "Cyno and Nilou will be released at the same time" theory is true, we'll have even less.
At least 3.0 will give us a lot of chests, quests and new achievements to farm for more primos. 2.0 gave us around 80 wishes between events, exploration and achievements. 3.1 will also introduce a new part of Sumeru's map (and ofc, the anniversary is also in 3.1, let's hope they are not stingy with the rewards).

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.

Kek what a roast, I’m sorry for Dottore-anon too but I agree, his redesign is cool. Although I do hope he still has his yandere vibe rather than a toned down stoic vibe.
In other news, we’re actually finally getting a male cryo character. Very reliable leak. The "tiny but lifts heavy weights" gap moe definitely points at him being a claymore user unfortunately though.
I’m actually so happy that we’re getting so many male character leaks. 3.0-3.9 is gonna be husbando impact
It's funny to me that we have one singular Dottore anon because nobody else liked him kek.
I'm also glad he got a redesign, I'm not extremely into the new one but it's leagues better than the old one. It really did look very goofy, and his personality was stereotypical villain cringe as well. The new one seemms mysterious and interesting, I'm excited to see what he's like in-game.

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
. Old Dottore seemed more unhinged and unpredictable. Either way, I don't dislike his new design.
>>228712>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.
>>228920>The drama came from the dendro archon being corrected to a female after initial mistranslation
Implying MHY cares about Europoors and Amerifatties.>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
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.

Nope, never heard of this one. Just saw some screenshots of the comments but they weren't affilitated to any group. Are you sure it's not the narrative you were assuming?
I remember Honkek incels being triggered
by bunny girl outfits and male chars being playable. So triggered
in fact, they went vocal about it.

You are so cute, anon. I miss that innocence…
Good job defeating Childe, tho! Glad you liked his battle. Fun fact, when that boss was released the devs had to lower the difficulty of his fight during the main story because players couldn't defeat him and were unable to continue playing the Archon quests, so they started bitching and complaining to Mihoyo, kek. Good times.
Zhongli is indeed cool, I feel they managed to convey pretty well with his design how wise and old he is without turning him into an old uggo.
He's rerunning in 3.0, btw.
It's a retarded decision because Genshin team had hints on Honkek expies being reused like Himeko. These mongs will most likely recast Lisa's VA again while a part of the Japanese fanbase unironically thinks Nahida and Qiqi are connected.
On the other hand it increases the chances of Hosoya being casted as another Honkek expy.

Same here. Tower of fantasy looks awful tbh. Genuinely a shitty generic gacha.

ToF rides too hard on Genshin's success. It reminds me of the WOW era with candidates starting clones left and right without lasting long. Nothing to fear on that level except the extra features Genshin could use.
File: 1660238936161.png (10.28 MB, 3000x2000, FZOGb9eVUAAb0u2.png)
ToF is very generic and takes way too much from both Honkai and Genshin. It's also PvP so you just know the game will be intolerably stingy unless you're whaling hard, PvP games always become whalefests.
more than one of those posts was mine so seriously stop acting schizo and get your dysfunctional troondar checked, fag.
doesn't really matter if it's riding on GI's success or not if it does what it does better, and the bar for that isn't exactly high. I truly do have more hope for a new game to surpass genshin than I do for genshin to improve. mihoyo has already made their money and know they can get by with the bare minimum. they don't give a hoot about retaining their older playerbase. they're instead trying to get the players who've grown bored of genshin into another one of their games for those sweet newbiebux.
Lmao ToF isn't doing anything better than Genshin right now except maybe main character customization. Animation loops aren't finished, the characters are ugly, and the game has horrible balance issues. Check the few people who played the beta; F2Ps suffer through bullet sponge enemies and get two shot by raid bosses, they need to hope a whale matchmakes with them and actually completes the fight for them, plus they stand no chance at all vs the whales.
The only people I see getting pulled away from Genshin for ToF are some coomers (who will probably just play both ngl) and the really extreme metafags who want to do millions and millions of damage to a damage sponge.
pvp is lowkey a whiteflag. the gap between whales and lower spenders is way, WAY smaller and they generally have more cosmetics to spend on instead.
meanwhile in over a year since implementation genshin has made what, 6 skins? and they're all fug? kek
>>229514>It's also PvP so you just know the game will be intolerably stingy unless you're whaling hard
Someone on reddit said that in China (the Chinese server has been up for half a year) the game flopped hard. I didn't find any article in English about it, so I decided to search in Chinese. I found this: https://36kr.com/p/1825717262910985
If you can't read Chinese, just translate it with google, I tried and it's readable, kek.
just check if nga has a board for it>>229534
never been my experience. what other games do you play?
>>229516>tranny is a ventipedo
Checked. Venti is not your transition goals character.>>229525
Sounds like a huge P2W like those MMOs in the 00s.
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.

Ugh I feel you nonnie
but we still have Djajeet and Kaveh left. Hopefully one of them is more magi styled. I feel like Nilou got a magi middle eastern outfit and maybe dori. The rest look like generic mihoyo designs.

naruhodo. the only gachas with pvp I've played were chinese or cookie run so I can't speak on japanese games. but onmyoji is still one of the biggest and most influential chinese gachas and whaling there = cosmetics only, no meaningful advantages in pvp or pve.
all I want is for botw 2 to stop being delayed really. I don't wanna waste time on soulless copy gacha fads. they aren't filling the void anymore.>>229572

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.
I'm afraid of how they'll portray Arlecchino now… Watch them turn her into a fashion addict or some shit. Or someone that has a cute sneeze. I'm so tired.

Beidou. You are describing Beidou.
I want Arleccino to to be blatantly mean and intolerant of anyone's shit. I think her being upset about Signora's death will mean she has a soft side, though, and Mihoyo will probably play that up.
>>230066>Beidou. You are describing Beidou.
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.>I think her being upset about Signora's death will mean she has a soft side, though, and Mihoyo will probably play that up.
Yeah, probably. Sad.

IGNORE THE BAIT, don't eat that shit up you're better than that, anon.
Btw, I'm excited for tomorrow's livestream, I wonder how many of the leaks will be confirmed. Can't wait.
>>230041>Of the SSR characters only 3/10 are male, with 0 male SR characters
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
It's an insult that Beidou has such a mediocre kit not worth using because she's the most interesting female character along with her girlfriend
in the entire game. I really hope they won't fuck Arlecchino over and I hope she's gal pals with Columbina too kek

This makes me really sad to hear. Wherever she is, I wish the best for her. >>230460
I hope you lose 50/50 on all your faves.
Is this Dottore anon samefagging? I refuse to believe she's insanely popular here when all she did was shit up the threads and guilt-trip like >>230468
said. She must be under the impression people in this thread consider her a celebrity, which is very embarrassing to witness. I hope she's aware anons only let her become the "Dottore anon" because he used to be very ugly and nobody wanted to favorite him over that. If she was avatarfagging as the "Childe anon" or any other highly favored male character, everybody would tell her to fuck right off and call her out on the cringe.
samefagging, retard? Imagine being this jealous over someone earning a nickname (?) in the genshin thread, kek, embarassing.
She was never obnoxious, she barely "avatarfagged" unless she was summoned by anons, only then she would post Dottore pics, and she never thought of herself as a "celebrity", lmao. Dottore anon was one of the sweetest anons we had in the thread, that's why most people here like her. Anons like you are the ones that are cringe and should "fuck right off". I second >>230466
and hope you lose all your 50/50s to the character you dislike the most. Cheers.

I still play. I threw a huge tantrum over the dottore redesign but now i dont really care anymore, dottore is still dottore at the end of the day even if i do prefer the old design
Not really tbh, at least Dottore anon is nice and her posts about Dottore are fun. She only sperged once for like three posts and you're already crucifying her, go outside or something.
Also, avatarfags are only annoying if they constantly post retarded shit like the Venti and Lumine avatarfags that would sperg all of the time about random shit.
everyone itt is dottore anon now, kek

it's not a challenge for non-attention whores. this is an anonymous imageboard, of course the non-newfags are going to be annoyed by you trying to make a name for yourself here instead of a site meant for that.

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. Le wholesome uwu image is something countless tripfags, avatarfags, etc do on boards to further contrast their posts from all the mean anon plebs for extra attention. It will never not be retarded. Anons active on twitter may be used to it I guess.
No one avatarfags with popular characters for the exact reasons >>230476

Agreed. Some anons here are pretty obviously newfriends who have never browsed any other imageboards that are full of cancerous avatar- and tripfagging autists.
Also, Ventifags okay sure, but what Lumine posters? I don't remember anyone posting her other than to call her ugly or infight about which Traveller is better.

>>230539>to piss that one anon off
Bless you anon
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.

Can you all read? I didn't say I didn't like "ventifags" in general. I love Venti, I'm literally >>228181
, I'm just saying there's an anon that keeps posting Venti fanart alongside her infighting posts and her "this game is shit" sperging, trying to be smug.
Also, just because you have don't like dottore anon doesn't mean everybody should hate on her as well. This thread is not a hivemind, stop getting your panties in a twist just because you don't like her. You are calling everyone a twitterfag, but fr the way you are all triggered
by dottore anon each time someone talks about her (this is not the first time) is peak twitter behaviour. Not only that, but bringing unrelated discord drama to try and "expose her" keek. Anyways i'll stop responding because we are just derailing at this point.
I know it's derailing at this point but I want to say one last final thing.>in this case im bisexual
No, you're just straight. Judging by your blind and never ending devotion to Dottore and 2d cock, you're the type of "bisexual" to feel disgusted by the touch of a woman and end up married to a guy 20 years later.

Damn I didn’t check the thread for a few days, all this infighting is making my head hurt. Changing the topic, Sumeru looks great! I’m so excited for the new region. Since the 3.1 beta would be starting soon-ish, what leaks are you guys looking forward to? Personally I’d love to see Scara’s redesign and some character’s kits.
As an ESL whose country never gets representation I would fucking love to have a region inspired by my country in some fun anime adventure game like Sumeru is so I feel you. It's always 2nd to 3rd gen immigrant Americans who throw fits about the accuracy when they can barely speak their (grand)parents' language themselves and never have even lived in their country. >>231149
This! The female characters look actually pretty good and tasteful in my opinion! Just hoping that Candace won't turn out to be the region's Yelan/Shenhe.
File: 1660649844533.jpg (124.09 KB, 1499x747, 20022082811.jpg)
aladdin is a fantasy middle eastern inspired world, based on that logic game of thrones and lotr are appropiating european medieval cultures lol. same thing as sumeru, it's a fantasy world! dori is just a nod to aladdin, so i fail to see what's so oh wrong with her character
i feel like these people really don't wan to have fun or something, it's impossible to make a fantasy world from scratch, you still gotta get inspired by something from real life. these days if you don't properly represent non-european cultures 14 yr olds on twitter will cancel you. they got mad at the fucking raya movie for being a "melting pot" even though the people who came up with the story were all SEA creators
Sometimes it's like people just want to see a 1:1 representation of everything. And it's seriously retarded to expect great female character designs from a shitty moid videogame company.
At this point it's just people whining because they're bored and not because they're actually concerned over something.
And not only that, if anyone plays gayshit infact and thinks "wow so this is what Egypt, the arab Emirates and India look like!" Then that's that person's issue, not the videogame company's fault. This is literally the era of information and if someone can play a shitty Chinese game then that person can also google "yo what the fuck is turkey the country not the animal stop giving me thanksgiving's day recipes for fucks sake".
People nitpicked Inazuma to death too for "inaccuracies" even though the region was just based on
Japan, not portraying
Japanese culture, Mihoyo even consulted Japanese natives to get the feel right and even had Tsurumi be based on the indigenous Japanese (Ainu) which was a pretty cool thing to do. I could bet that if people didn't know it was a Chinese company they would be nitpicking Liyue for being "inaccurate" too kek, they're all just looking for things to get mad about to feel smarter than they are. And like you said it's impossible to create a fantasy world without at least some inspiration from real life regions when you're doing a story where the character travels all around the world. It's not a history book, it's a fantasy game.
Oh my gosh, yes, if I had a bone to pick it would be this. Like, turkey and arab countries and iran have cultural/history overlap, but they're still radically
different. Hell, even in 1 country you can get people with very very different cultures and history (see: kurds and/or around the persian gulf)
let alone mixing india with us too, and to this degree. It's like grouping east asia with latin people because some mexicans can pass as east asian or some shit.

Amazing. Another dutiful but playful nice girl always willing to help others in need and loved by her community. Sumeru girls confirmed to be a fucking waste sans Collei. At least the boy characters seem to be a lot of fun so fuck Hydro Pixielocks and polearm Yoimiya then.
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.
I looked up the Jinwar in the village of Darbasiyah (meaning "women's village" in Turkish) and if we're mixing cultures into the fictional country, they could've at least had more fun and went there. (maybe I'll just write fic…)
please google how to clean beneath your foreskin>>231978
is the all female village part your weird fic or official? a half naked all female snu snu village is the very last thing genshin needs. you know they aren't going to be braiding eachothers hair and sharing feminist lit in a game where shenhe exists. and the roster has already been approaching that from day one…
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.
Literally half of these don't include their jobs + Xiangling and Mona were there from the start. Good job proving my point. Meanwhile we have>Tighnari the literal fusion between muh fluffy tail Gorou and Kazuha>Chongyun only talks about spirits and ice cream>Bennett has poor luck but he's a nice qt for the female audience>Ayato is textbook Jean who also always puts his job first>Heizou is le sassy sherlock>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.
At least they've been doing it less and less ever since, when you look at Itto, Yae, Ayato and Yelan's quests.
>>232054>Kazuha's story was about the tragic fall of their clan
I like Kazuha well enough but I'm gonna be real anon - I am sick and tired of his clans downfall story. His personal quest is about his clans downfall, Itadori festival was about his clans downfall, this event is also once again about his clans downfall.>>232068
is basically right, Kazuha doesn't have a personality beyond being in a homosexual relationship with his dead friend and *~le clan downfall~*.
I skipped a good 80% of dialogue in these quests, I don't give a fuck about most of these characters at this point. At least Fischl's autism is endearing.
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.
YWNBAW and one day your parents are going to kill you in your sleep.
Sad, but Idk if I would've turned voices back on even if it was good because of Paimon in every language.

Scara boss model, this wont be his playable model
Kazuha's clan's story is being shoehorned in recently because they're getting ready to release Scaramouche and it's clearly leading up to him seeing how involved he was revealed to be with Kazuha's ancestors. But because for some reason they're banned from involving male characters in the Archon story it has to be left for the events. >beyond being in a homosexual relationship with his dead friend
Kek that's enough for me, I wish half of the female characters had this. >At least Fischl's autism is endearing.
It's not. It's annoying as hell. Even if he was a male character I would hate it just the same. >>232133>>232224
He has ball joints like the puppet Raiden in that model, maybe he gets his freedom and is reborn into an actual human a la Pinocchio and is granted a vision?

Nonas it feels like he was specifically designed to empty my wallet. His design has been around forever and I've loved it the whole time but the leaks on his personality only make me love him more. Praying and praying they don't make his damage shit
He got high(for science)>>232770>Thick thighs, bare tummy and all
I agree about the splash art and the tummy but WHAT thick thighs?
Fucking this. The outrage over muh orientalism goes out of the window the moment there's a hot half naked big titty tan lady they can call their sapphic mommy over and over. And when you point it out they make up stupid excuses or straight out admit "you can recognize it's problematic
even if you like it". Oh yeah, I guess that's why you were attacking people for liking ["orientalist" design x] without mercy earlier.
AYRT, there is literally nothing appealing about coomer characters like Candace and idk what Twittertards see that I don’t, most if not all of the women characters are so unappealing and it’s crazy to see sapphics drool over half naked coomer ladies. I just don’t get it.
Anyway, I’m on the fence about Tighnari, he’s cute but I don’t get characters that I’m not 100% sure I want and him being moved to standard is making me want him but I think that might be just because of ramped up FOMO, I just can’t make my mind up on if I want to pull for him or not.
Literally where kek
Twitter is once again seething over Candace's skin being too light.
Why? It sounds like a waste of time and money, he already has a design and a model in the game that's surely easier to make move around than some shit like Fox bitch or Ei.
If they're really going to redesign him, I hope they keep his crop top, I will be seriously mad if they cover him from head to toe.
Why are you using twittertard language? >>232904
I was so against a redesign for Scaramouche but I’m honestly completely okay with a Baizhu redesign. His pants are so ugly. The snake is pixely af. I hope they don’t change his hair, that’s all.
Is it? Didn’t know that kek I don’t go on Twitter often beides for announcements and it’s commonly used in my circle. I thought it just meant like lesbian and bi women.>>232904
Hope they make him sluttier

Samefagging but unironically I hope they at least keep the coat and it doesn’t get removed like Scara’s viel at least, but I don’t know what exactly they would be changing and why. I’m more upset that I have to wait longer to get him, first Scara now this kek
kek I thought it was next week, I didn't even finish half the main event quest rip
hats off to the devs for creating the least fun experience I've ever had in a video game with that event, kept me away from the game for a full month
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.>>233075
was it not longer? it felt longer than entire archon acts. the first one was fun and cute though. they posted one of those infographics the other day and it made the participation rate look abysmal lol.

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.

Now I want Howl Venti.
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.>>233130
This, the rewards compared to the time sunk into completing the puzzles are a joke.
The whole atmosphere of sumeru feels so nice, it makes me think a lot of Zelda's twilight princess.
And it's fun how there's allies that actually fight instead of just uwuwing on the floor, and how Ayato basically says "check yourself before you shrek yourself" in his new voice-over.

We don't know for sure yet, but right now it seems like dendro mc is more flexible and suits better in team slots as a dendro character because there ult is pretty good.>>233735
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.

Alright thanks! I honestly never built my MC past level 20 kek. I love Aether though and it’s actually really nostalgic to run around with him exploring again.
This. I find it so hard to see the little girl characters as cute because everyone knows they were made for pedos. I'm disgusted every time I see them and fanart of them like >>233795
. The children npcs aren't sexualized and I actually find those cute, too bad they're just npc.
She's an actual retard. Hurr durr I can't tell you that you're being forced to repeat the same day over and over in a dream because your mind wouldn't comprehend it, go play three hours of irritating garbage on loop before I let you back into the actual game. Scrotes being disgusting and sexualizing her just makes her worse.
The Aranara, on the other hand, are adorable and sweet and I will be sad if/when harm comes to them.
NTA but I was expecting much worse from a loli archon, she turned out to be okay and her being a child actually made sense this time and I wasn't bothered by the fact. I was mad at her for teasing with shit hints at first too but honestly it made sense why she couldn't just tell the truth outright, the same concept has been used in other forms of media where a dream world
has been involved.
The quest did drag on way, way too long though and by the end I was just forcing myself to read through the dialogue because I was getting so frustrated. I'm really excited for the next part. Scrotes sexualizing Nahida can get their dicks cut to pieces though.

Help me, nonnas, please. I died while trying to kill the withering in the quest "the last chapter" and I don't know how to go back there to finish the quest, it's killing me, I don't know what to do, I need the primogems to get the stupid fox boy with ridiculously long ears.
I honestly think that Nilou wasn't that bad, she was most of the time just standing there and explaining some stuff, I like that at least her outfit makes a bit of sense since she's just cosplaying like a religious freak.
I also didn't mind the dendro archon, she was cute even if she wouldn't say the truth right away, but I mean, the idea was that we used our brains, and it was honestly nice, I was quite surprised by that gimmick, but I'm pretty sure that a bunch of people will get mad about it because you have to think instead of just mash random buttons.
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.
I just love Sumeru, it's such a nice region with an actually interesting story and with so far some nice characters, even talking with Dori was nice.
I can't wait to be able to pull for Hai, he looks scrumptious.
>weirdos sexualize this character therefore this character is shit
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". >>233905
You posted a picture of lumine with dottore and then said you wanted dottore to kill nahida and nilou. Well, dottore already choked an innocent female classmate and allowed the ruin guards to mutilate her body, him doing bad things to baby nahida is expected right? This is added to the irony that you hate female characters for being moid pandering, while your self-insert is as big of a coombait as anyone else lol
This, 3D men should be banned from cosplaying as 2D men. It's unironically gross. >>234013>Well, dottore already choked an innocent female classmate and allowed the ruin guards to mutilate her body
He did what?? I guess I need to read the manga.
File: 1661590840316.jpg (99.06 KB, 1324x973, sohreh.jpg)
It's not in the manga, it's new info about him. His name was zandik (means heretic) and he murdered this woman called sohreh
No, it's more like>Pedophiles made this character for other pedophiles, therefore this character is shit
You're being blind on purpose. Yes her being tiny makes sense, but does it make sense that the child characters have big hips and skirts players can see under? At least Raiden is an adult woman.
>>234030>gets feelings hurt over anon telling them their image is shit on an imageboard>throws a tantrum and tells others to grow up
Pottery>>234038>I don't see this logic being used against anya from spy x family
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 liked Dunyarzad and Dehya, but thats because im weak for the princess like type character x knight. The archon was okay. Nilou is also okay, she's better then ayaka atleast because ayaka was all over traveler and Nilou seems neutral and not fawn over traveler to much. >>233854
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.>>233969>I can't wait to be able to pull for Hai, he looks scrumptious.
Yeah he is hot, cant wait to get him.
The schizo troon accuses any post that triggers
him of being a troon or a schizo, and for some reason he can never decide between "YWNBAW" and "YWNBAM" which defeats the point of the insult entirely

because it was, no need to be obtuse about it. these are the developers of honkai, a game where you can fondle the underage characters flat boobs bad jiggle physics and all. this game too is full of fanservice for male weebs, no one struggles to recognize that in the older female characters so why would any of the lolis be an exception, even the super wise 500 year old archon!!1! one. there's a reason there are no little boy characters.
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
Lol I just grabbed one of the few Dottore arts I had saved, it's really not that deep. If they're going to have such an evil character exist might as well have him do something useful.
I take back Nilou though, I was aggravated about her being the centre of that bullshit groundhog day garbage and in hindsight she's really just boring and bland. Kid god still has my ire though. >>234032>>234037
Leakers have already confirmed he's going to be playable, the only Harbinger who might not be is the old elf mayor because we don't have a child male model yet. They'll probably do what >>234080
said and have a less evil clone of him join the Traveler.>>234084

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.
Still have a ton of exploring to do, but I might stretch it out. They added new treasures on the Liyue side of the area too.
Also Scarlet King is Rhulk?, haha, he'll probably just be a red herring and not actually important.
I'm glad they added more personality to my MC rather than the mute character who answers.
Praying they don't fuck the story in 3.1 unlike Inazuma and fucking Teppei. We can do this.

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.

I also can't stand neither of those two, but let's be real, he will have a heart to heart moment with them on a summer event and he will forgive them, he may even call them mom and furry mom so they're redeemed with some bullshit excuse so they can stay likeable and redeemed for whoever is into them.

Unfortunately sumeru failed to reignite my love for genshin, I just don’t enjoy this game anymore. I started playing during the OG childe banner, been very into the game but I think I’m just over it, the gameplay doesn’t excite me anymore and there hasn’t been any good new character since forever. Goodbye for now genshin I know I will come back eventually, but for now, I’m uninstalling
they're shit characters. raiden acts like the average unloving deadbeat dad and yae is a walking hentai trope with a hobby of lore dumping. their designs are pure scrote shit too, one is ripped off a raita character ffs. I think if any genshit tranny headcanons had a leg to stand on it'd be them and sara because tengus are an all male race and the only other ones mentioned in game are male.
literally a case study for everything men do wrong when writing female characters.
Raiden is actually a terrible fucking character and I don't understand why so people cape for her so aggressively because there's nothing likable about her. At least Yae has a personality but with Raiden literally her dead sister is more interesting.>hurrr I'm just a martial artist autist I know nothing about anything, didn't even take part in the Khaenriah conflict because I was too busy with muh martial arts, and then threw a tantrum and closed myself off because my friends died and left a psychopatic murderous puppet in charge in the meanwhile duhh whats a light novel mmmmm dango milkies
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.

holy kek anon you cannot be serious. everything genshin copied from botw has been approx. 20x worse minimum in true chinx bootleg fashion. it's true that there are more characters and plot but they suck ass so bad half the thread is complaints about them. maybe you need to revisit the original and you'll see how big a downgrade genshin really is? the one thing i appreciate is that it doesn't suck to climb in rain.

>the master sword had a time limit on when you could use it
a hit limit like any other weapon, not a time limit. and it'd come back unlike broken weapons.
>hyrule felt super empty
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.
>no dungeons just annoying puzzles
genshin has no dungeons and worse puzzles
>Ganon’s battle sucks
every battle in genshin sucks.
>At the time it was fun to goof around but yeah it really was an overrated game
genshin kek. the game does nothing better than botw besides the climbing in rain, idk how you think it improved upon any of these issues you had with botw because in my eyes it made them all worse plus added a crummy gacha. are you a newer player?
nta but>every battle in genshin sucks
is simply not true, genshin's combat is what keeps the game fun for me.

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.
Good luck with your savings!
Not gonna lie im a husbandofag so i will probably just pull for all the upcoming guys kek. Sadly still got no tighnari im crying so i think i will just stop pulling on his banner and save the guarantee for cyno.>>235204
