they just released the concept trailor for a full anime today, retard. and genshin is already ruined by redditors who want to screw the waifus, soyface over their reverse vapes, and smugly screech about the male characters not being META enough. thought we all knew.

He's cute and everything but my god why can't we have a short male character that looks princely or a little more elegant? They're all so Kindgom Hearts tier with the shorts and bags and belts. The only ones we have now are Xiao, Xingqiu and maybe Kazuha and Venti.
Also Mika reminds me of Len mixed with a chocobo.

Damn with lolcow being down i realised that i really do not have any female place to discus genshin. I really want to go on a rant about the genshin fandom, its full with moids and pickmes.

>meet nice girl in co op

>joins her discord server after she asked if i could join since she's a small streamer and seems nice
>server is full with coomer moids
>her moid bf suddenly joins her server and in one day posts 20+ hentai fan art of mona
>its so much that even other moids show concern about the amount of porn he has of this fictional character
>streamer girls goes teehee and says she doesnt mind because she totally thinks mona is also hot
>her twitch stream has full coomer emotes of the genshin girls like yelan armpit being licked which she added after one moid viewer ask if she could add it
>me realising that even tho genshin does have a good amount of female players most of them are embarrassing "not like the other girls" trying to fit in with the moids

It was so bad nonnies. Why is every female player i meet in genshin such a pickme and coomer. Most of them also claim to be bi but then be in a straight relationship and try to convince themselves that they dont mind that there nigel is posting tons of hentai of female genshin characters. I also hate how they act like if you are a lesbian that you need to act like a moid. Most female characters in genshin are so male gazey and i hate how they react when they realise im not a coomer like them and dont scream "mommy step om me uwu" when i see a tall female character.

Let's pray that they won't bimbofy Arlecchino and let her be a princely butch female

Don't worry nona, we're here for you. I'm so glad I have a female friend group that plays Genshin and hates waifus but I also know I'm blessed for it and it's a rarity to find one. I entered a Genshin server once and almost all the active female users were turbo pickmes talking about how they want mommy Shenhe to suffocate them with her thighs and how empowering it is to pander to moids, whenever some normal woman asked them to tone it down because it was making them uncomfortable they were relentlessly attacked for muh slut shaming/SWERFness/sex negativity/whatever made up coomer oppression they claim, sometimes even homophobia because it was considered "lesbian/bisexual erasure". Of course they were all in straight relationships too kek

I don't understand what it is about genshin waifus that make pickmes even more pickme than usual, a good portion of the female characters in this game are exceptionally ass because they're only created to grab a quick buck from male players. Maybe because they're so void of personality and character that all the e-girls project into them hardcore.

This is pretty common behaviour for "normie" weeb girls, who grew up with coomer shounens and other scrote shows. They're a bit distinct from the fakeboy and fujo crowd which is focused only on husbandos (also yumejos, but i found a large number of yumejos tend to be a bit waifu centric at times so they're a mixed bag). In general, normie weeb girls will lewd every character, be it male or female because it's considered trendy and cool and such a bisexual thing to do. I don't think all of them are pick mes, but being in the presence of men and wanting to get their attention will usually make their behaviour more insufferable.

No. 240322

Nta but that's what I don't get! Why do moids (and the odd woman) care so much about meta? They're always on about how to get the most damage and who does the highest numbers. They actually show off their damage like it's such a flex like they cracked some kind of code. I just don't see how it can be fun. It looks like an obligation to grind so hard to make the numbers move. Isn't hacking and slashing and figuring how to survive when you get there part of the fun?

No. 240331

NTA but what annoys me the most is that the moids just flex the same meta all the time like the retarded Forward vape-scrote from this thread. I'd be more impressed if people managed to show off complex strategies that require thought and coordination skills than just pour water and light on fire with c6 waifus. Or how about making a "bad" character into a well utilized party member? That takes talent. There's absolutely no creativity with scrotes, it's always the same rigid composition and everything else is considered shit because it's not "how the game is supposed to be played" as if the combat wasn't created to encourage constant rotation and experiment.

Just more proof of how they should be put in cages for not being capable of complex thought or abstraction. Actual cavemen with no evolutionary tract at all.

You're so right about that.

Wait, people ship cyno x nilou now? Hetshippers and their reaches never stop surprising me, apparently now you need to have a banner released at the same time to get them going despite cyno and tighnari already being friendly with each other via voicelines and NPC dialogue and nilou being mentioned nowhere. Really makes the "het romance in media needs no context or canon background" claim ring true. It wouldn't even bother me so much if all popular Genshin hetships weren't based on just "but they look so aesthetic together".

No. 241192

It's because some cynofags hate tighnari and want to give him a gf instead and nilou doesn't have a ship yet (considering she has the personality of a wet cardboard, she's better as a traveler simp) so they decided these two must date kek if you ask me, they don't even look "aesthetic" together

No. 241196

but why would cynofags hate tighnari………

No. 241197

I know some older cynofags don't like tighnari because they consider him too ugly for cyno and because they don't want to see top cyno, they want bottom cyno so they ship him with alhaitham. I think the rest are probably just self-inserters in disguise who want to see him with a woman (but why not lumine then… idk) or cyno fanboys who hate gay pairings

No. 241199

I'll never forgive the genshin fandom for giving human garbage abbystea a platform to spread her propaganda, defending her all the time despite being a misogynistic and homophobic pro-ccp schizo just because she's a hetshipper. I swear shit like this would never be allowed in a normal context but something about anime fandoms breeds the worst type of people

No. 241206

I guess pedo art and pro putin messages are fine if they come from a heterosexual ""woman"" (maybe) and the art is cute.

Agree, I'm still bitter about her being protected and defended by prolific figures in the fandom for so long despite Russian speakers warning people multiple times about her being a scammer (tracing art and taking commission money but not delivering) and a bigot, simply because she cried crocodile tears about being "bullied for drawing hetships". At least now she's unhinged out in the open with her pro-Putin and pro-CCP propaganda that nobody in their right mind would support her but god it took them a long fucking time.

There's still no proof of "her" being an actual woman other than her own word. No selfies, no real name, no real life encounters. Her art has a distinctive male coomer undertone to it too so who knows. We'll probably never learn the truth.

I think that Hoyo is overestimating people's attention span and interest when they made the arananana quest. People don't care about quests unless it involves their husbandos/waifus… you'd think they'd know that being a waifu gacha game and all that kek good on all nonas who enjoyed Sumeru but I sure as hell didn't.

Sorry I thought I used enter twice now it looks like the two sentences are related.

Same, shippers make me feel like a boomer when I see them fight. Also no that anon but you see fights everywhere, try western twitter and follow a bunch of 100-400 accounts and you'll have endless content. Maybe even enough for a thread.

Anyways I always enjoy reading these Genshin threads (except when people fight about ships) and my Genshin folder says thank you for the good pics posted here! Back to lurking

Internet gossip is something I read when I'm bored with work or need entertainment on a long trip, I'd much rather be playing something I like than brag about how much I hate a game but still stick around "laughing at retards" like it made me cool and unbothered.

>shipping is fun but i dont get why its so important to some people.
I know people stereotype fujos fighting over ships but literally the only actual "ship wars" I've seen on Genshin have been hetshippers being assmad about "heterophobia" and writing nonsensical takes about how everyone is erasing straight ships and mental gymnastics about how being in a straight relationship doesn't mean you can't be "queer" etc. The group they clash with the most often are the underage f/f shippers who think EiMiko is the quintessential lesbian representation and being teenagers they lash out in typical teenager fashion. So it's more about genuine homophobia meeting with those who have a chip on their shoulders about it which is why it can reach such an explosive burning point.

After actually playing through most of the Aranara quest they really aren't that much like Koroks afterall besides the idea of forest spirits. Their role in the story is completely different, and the designs remind me more of Keroro Gunsou.
There is a little bit where the one hidden one who likes treasure chests mentions a 'Green Nara' that I'm pretty sure is a direct LoZ reference though.
Also Paimon is really growing on me, her banter with the Traveler is cute.

No. 242356

Anon for the love of god you could have condensed these replies to one post instead of bumping the thread with literal microblogs one by one.

That said, the Aranara quests are enjoyable and I like that they fully relate to the main quest instead of being random NPCs nobody gives a shit about. Inazuma was so guilty of the latter that doing them was like swallowing broken glass because none of them told me about the world lore. Even Enkanomiya was just so out of place I still have half of the quests undone because I can't be assed to finish them. It's like they switched out writers for Inazuma and made shit up on the spot while Sumeru feels like a much more natural continuation of where we left off in Liyue.

Also the people who complain about the game being boring and stupid should really consider going outside and finding something more enjoyable to do than lurking a thread to whine about how much they hate a Chinese gacha game they're somehow still playing or at least invested enough in to check an imageboard thread for.

I actually agree, I thought it was a fake leak when I first saw her because it legitimately does look like a fan design. It's pretty uninspired and boring, just a "safe" take that doesn't really reflect her personality at all. She doesn't look like a "tired academic" to me, she looks like a generic exotic dancer NPC.

And naturally she's cryo since we haven't had enough cryo waifus in this game I guess. But hey at least we're getting a fifth 5* anemo twink replacing the anticipated electro villain everyone was waiting for.

I wouldn't mind using Nahida, imagine her in the overworld running around in the rainforest like a tiny forest fairy. Kinda cute.

I say this as someone who grew up watching a lot of all-female anime series and who had a ton of favorite female characters… something about genshin girls is extremely soulless to me. Like there's nothing pulling me towards them (besides maybe gameplay), for instance someone with hutao's personality would be a super fun character in another series but here's she's written in such a painfully boring way. I can't point the exact reason why but the characters feel extremely watered down. They talk about their insanely boring jobs all the time (this is a fantasy game for fucks sake) and have like one ""quirky"" trait which gets flanderized. It's really not entertaining to me

No. 242635

I feel you, nona. Personally I'm a big fan of looking into lore stuff in the game, and one of my biggest gripes is that a lot of the female characters that get big event/story focus have absolutely nothing interesting going on in that regard and never will (Keqing, Ayaka) while they do nothing interesting with the female characters who actually could have very interesting lore connections. I still like Hutao quite a lot and it's insane to me that they dropped something as significant as her directly leading souls to the leylines in her quest only to never do anything with her. Or I can't believe how they have all of these connections to the vishaps with kokomi only for her to have absolutely nothing to do directly with enkanomiya quests/event, not to mention how horrendously telling instead of showing her section of the inazuma quests were. I have high hopes for Mona actually getting interesting things in the future (god I just want another character focused event as big reveal feeling as the second albedo event) but I was very disappointed by 2.8's GAA not giving any new interesting information about the characters involved, it was almost entirely just fancily presented story anyone could've read in the characters story tabs

No. 242638

>fancily presented story anyone could've read in the characters story tabs
THIS is my main issue with where mihoyo has been taking the story. I feel like they noticed how big genshin got and want to drag the story out because we have not gotten any big story changing lore drops since the We Will Be Reunited quest. Literally like Dain telling us that hilichurls are cursed people from Khaneria'ah, we knew that!!! Anyone who reads any lore knows that. That could have been a tiny little reveal to fill in non-lore readers but to make a whole interlude quest about it? Same with the latest GAA, we already knew Fischl was Amy. This was not a big reveal.

they're both aoe dps that need to stay on field for a very long time, but cyno's has a lot of disadvantages over xiao like
>smaller aoe
>worse damage
>worse element (resisted by more enemies and still has no advantage against shields)
>reliance on reaction damage meanwhile aether's skill duration is shorter than his ult and the other two don't do anything for him, so only 5* lolicon bait nahida can set up reactions for him well
>drastically fewer support options
he's event limited aoe keqing. no advantages over xiao except in event challenges that force you to bring an electro character. I'm just going to use him to run around the desert.

No. 242652

I think you said the reason yourself - the ruthless flanderization the female characters are subjected to makes them boring and one-dimensional. They could be replaced with NPCs and they would have as much depth. They're given a tropey quirk but nothing else about them is developed and most of the girl characters fall into the position of being just "nice". So many of the male characters have a lot of substance and are key elements to the world we're exploring like Venti, Zhongli, Xiao, Albedo, Kaeya, Childe, Diluc and Kazuha all either having ties to the gods, Khaenri'ah, Fatui or the Abyss. Collei was immediately more interesting because of her association with the Fatui and Dehya with the Eremites, hell, even Nilou despite being boring as fuck was actually a part of the story narrative. They're not just random girls around the village sperging over their hyperfixation.

It was an unbelievable waste to just dump Kokomi to the sidelines during the Enkanomiya event quest when it laid out so many possibilities to explore the history of Watatsumi and the Sangonomiya bloodline with her. It's like Mihoyo doesn't want the female characters to be relevant to the story because they want them to remain as blank and palatable as possible.

Collei was such an interesting character in the manga. But in the game? Shit. Absolute shit.

No. 242667

Actually true, I stand corrected. Fuck Nilou.

Well, that's technically the gist of it. She was already established in the manga which carried over to the game but first they gave her the waifufied treatment (can't have short hair or tomboyish clothes) and made her an useless forest trooper that spends her days just laying on her bed being sick. Which just means that the bar is below low for the female characters in this game when you're feeding on the remnants of what was given her in the manga.

>Worse element
This is debatable and entirely depending on your team composition. Calling him "limited aoe keqing" is factually incorrect since their playstyles seem to be completely different with Cyno being a mix of Xiao and Razor and Keqing being, well, just a subpar burst slut. I would imagine that if you use him with Ayato, Kokomi, Xingqiu, Kazuha, Mona or dendro traveler (or Tighnari to a degree) his continuous electro damage during his burst would be extremely useful. I don't know why you're forcing the "Cyno is shit" narrative when most of well-known players are already calling him a hypercarry. His damage scales pretty well too so even if he wouldn't reach broken Ayaka/Hu Tao levels he would still be the best electro DPS in the entire game.

No. 242672

are you saying collei was tomboyish in the manga? i'll have to finally read it

No. 242673

ayaka is one of the worst to me, never understood her hype.

>playstyles seem to be completely different
their functions are the same and damage is also very similar. dendro helped keqing a lot. at c0 they're completely interchangeable, one more suited to mobs and the other to single targets.

>Ayato, Kokomi, Xingqiu, Kazuha, Mona or dendro traveler (or Tighnari to a degree)

he won't be good with any of these except for kazuha and dmc if that's all you have. him and keqing both need to utilize the new dendro electro reaction to even reach damage comperable to an average xiao team. this reaction can't be triggered reliably when a hydro or pyro character is in the team, limiting ideal team members to a small handful of anemos, electros, and dendros. the handful is even smaller for cyno than it is for keqing because he goes extra poorly with tighnari, another on field dps, and collei and dendro aether's ults don't last long enough for his ult. I'm not putting him down because I don't like him or anything like that, I'm just disappointed that his kit was made intentionally mediocre without nahida to push her. nilou is the same way. xiao is easier to use, has the element with the fewest resistances, and doesn't rely on any one character or element which makes his teams uber flexible, so not going to bother investing in cyno past level ups to keep him from dying in the overworld.

I don't know what to tell you if you think Keqing and Cyno are "interchangeable" because it's simply not true, but to me it feels like you were expecting Cyno to be some sort of a gamebreaking superunit if you're calling him next to useless based on a kit description even before his release, if anything Kazuha and Kokomi should've taught us not to be so hung up on these things before we actually get to experience them in-game. Cyno being electro meant he was never going to be Hu Tao or Ayaka because the entire game is biased towards pyro and cryo but that doesn't mean he's bad or requires Nahida. I seriously don't understand why you're dooming this hard when I haven't heard anyone else ever be this pessimistic about Cyno based on what we know about his kit at this point.

No. 242796

I agree with you, it's very sad what they are doing to him, this would never happen to mihoyo's daughter ayaka of course she has to be broken. Meanwhile cyno, who was also on the travail chapter, gets to be a keqing sidegrade and his fans are forced to roll on nahida. Why? Because he's a husbando, and gacha developers are weirdly adamant against giving them a good kit. You can tell the art team, who has a lot of female employees, put a lot of thought and care into his design but the devs don't give a shit. Waifu = big number for monkey brain, husbando = low dps because how dare they powercreep the waifus

tell me about it! pretending a character that's built around a certain reaction with an element that will have no more than two crappy supports, one 5 star on field dps, and one 5 star archon support for the next 6+ months isn't a ploy to sell the upcoming archon is retarded.

I can tell you don't actually play Xiao bc he actually has major energy problems and needs another anemo unit in the team to give him particles, leaving you with only two other slots. And even then, you need a shield and a healer to prevent his suicidal ass from dying every time he ults.

You are complaining that cyno needs another 5 star character yet xiao best team exists of albedo, zhongli and maybe even jean instead of sucrose if you dont build zhongli as shield bot. Xiao and cyno are both fine characters, the problem right now is that there arent many dendro characters which will eventually be added in the future. No one is forcing anyone to pull for the dendro archon, did you know how long it took before xiao got his own artifact set? And xiao still doesnt even have a good supporting character that is an anemo battery with shield. Yet xiao can work fine in his current teams even if its expensive to build.

serious talk but mihoyo having some sort of weird internal development bias against male units simply reeks of incel behaviour. how can you as a huge company who pretends to be professional intentionally release gimped male dps over and over again just because you're afraid to hurt the feelings of some waifufags? how can they shadow buff ganyu after the beta testing ended when she was initally supposed to be a weaker unit than xiao and then nerf xiao to hell? xiao is the one who trains her in the quest, then she turns out to be way stronger than him?? reminder that xiao was also hyped by the chinese community before his release, the expectations were very high for him but obviously some moid in the development team was seething because he overshadowed his waifus. the only reason why they buffed zhongli, another gimped unit at release despite being the fucking archon, was because they got too many threats
you can call it a conspiracy theory and say that i'm a schizo, but it's the reality and most of the community is aware of their bias. make freeze and vape meta, and then release only cryo and pyro girls. no males allowed in the club
neither arknights nor fgo, other waifufag gacha, didn't pull this shit and they still release meta units to these day. only mihoyo does it

No. 243217

I'd mention Childe, but I think you're right, Itto is the best and him+Gorou+Albedo+Zhongli are so perfect that I always have their bursts up. Also big stronk men who are innocent dumbos are husabndo material.

Samee, it's like characters can't be cute anymore.

Honestly? I think it's way simpler than this. Moids fork more money while women/girls are a bit smarter when it comes to spending money on pixels … I mean just take a look at streamers, in-game people who C6 their crappy waifus and the how the fan interaction goes; it's all lusting over female characters.

it is weird how every meta male character ends up being a support. who knows why they do it, but at least this game is easy enough to use who you want as clunky as they may be. more than anything cyno needed some QOL buffs, god.

No. 243223

The strongest team with a male DPS is still Childe international, though if speaking about a strongest male dps you want to consider the individual unit damage contribution, it's true that Childe is unfortunately stuck to Xiangling to get him to do his best damage. Not shitting on Itto at all though, I love my geodude team, they're certainly easier to play than a proper rotation Childe international, and they do put out great damage, it's just that unfortunately the very best damage is always going to come from elemental reactions.

Honestly I go back and forth between whether mihoyo is objectively releasing worse male 5 stars or if it's merely that the theorycrafters and tierlist makers are so heavily male that they just have strong biases against male dps. It's funny to look at a lot of tierlists bc you'll see Raiden listed as a T0 dps but with the specification that she needs to be C2. Like, what if you accounted for constellations in ratings of the male characters? Idk, I am pissed they didn't make Cyno better but I'm waiting to see whether I should be truly mad or not depending on how Nilou is in comparison. I have a little hope bc she's expected to also be pretty bad

Yes probably, only if you have his correct teammates though. Same with Xiao and Childe, they need hyper specific teams but when they got their teams they’re really good. Ayato is a good one too but would be Itto-tier if he got dedicated supports. Now he’s more A-tier rather than S-tier.

So yes to continuous application. But she doesn't give any buffs besides the 200 em at c0. Tl;dr sub dps, not support. Burst does not go well with geo, anemo, cryo, or other dendro.

No. 243391

>neither arknights nor fgo, other waifufag gacha, didn't pull this shit and they still release meta units to these day. only mihoyo does it
Funny you should bring up FGO because they started releasing only overpowered waifus powercreeping the strong male units and then stopped putting out husbandos altogether for literally years losing their entire female playerbase to other gacha games. Mihoyo is not nearly as bad as Delightworks turned out to be, only Gilgamesh was consistently receiving upgrades because so many men self inserted to him. And don't get me started on the white day events.

However, I absolutely do agree about the gimped male dps, I'm not mad about Cyno because he's fun to play with and makes consistent damage and he was never going to be a broken piece of meta because he's not cryo or pyro. The people who were expecting him can only blame themselves for setting their own asses up for disappointment. The combat is designed in freeze/vape's favor but they intentionally keep from releasing 5-star cryo and pyro males or balancing the combat so that other elemental reactions would be as useful. I say intentionally because I very much doubt it's unintentional that for the past 2 years we have gotten like 5 5-star cryo waifus yet only two male cryos, both 4*, both released during launch. The same goes for pyro, Thoma was the first and only pyro male since launch and he turned out to be a trash unit despite all the otomefags loving him. It's torturous that they make the male characters so fun and interesting but leave them with subpar kits or functional with a niche composition. At least Kazuha and Bennett are the best combo in the game but I wouldn't be surprised if they released a female Kazuha equivalent to coddle moids like they did with Yelan to Xingqiu.

I work full time too but I just play in the evenings and during weekends. It's not a competition, just play whenever you have the time.

No. 243392

just wait for the bennett powercreep unit, probably the pyro archon. the problem with cyno is not that he's mediocre, it's that metafags can't justify using him over keqing and metafags always mocked keqing so it's not like they are biased

No. 243393

That's the thing. As things are now, an electro DPS will never be something you use for an Abyss speedrun. You can use them on the field, during bossfights etc just fine because you have more freedom to your team composition and room for manoeuvre (for example you necessarily don't have to worry about crowd control or shields), but because metafags judge every character based on their Abyss floor 12 potential he was never going to fit that crowd. And that's because the game is biased against electro, simple as, he was doomed from the start. The only electro unit people consistently use in Abyss is Raiden and that's only due to her buffs.

No. 243398

i dont even know if thats the problem. the problem is his long, high cost burst hes locked into once he uses it, useless normal skill, reliance on a shielder, nonexistent synergy with damage boosters, and unimpressive damage with all these issues in mind. you could say thats the reason keqing is better since she struggles with none of that. dendro reactions as a whole have so many problems that would all be solved if dendro could just be swirled. anemo and its 1 reaction is more versatile and useful than dendro and its 80 reactions will ever be.

anon, raiden is an electro dps. her buffs were never her main feature outside, i dont know, eula teams?

No. 243399

Thank you so much this is way easier to understand.

I'm still seething about this, why the fuck can't it be swirled? I'm still coping that they'll eventually fix it in the future if I complain about it in the survey enough.

Does anyone use Raiden as a main DPS though? She seems to be much more relevant for her E.

No. 243402

yes, raiden is never worth using as an off field support with just her E. fischl, beidou, yae do that better. shes the main on field dps in all her popular teams.

>why the fuck can't it be swirled?

no clue, what a weird decision. my best guess is that it pushes exclusivity and forces people who want good dendro teams to pull upcoming dendro units? existing anemo characters are so op theyd automatically make better supports than actual dendros, which would in turn make it harder to sell them. dendro is a highly impractical novelty as it is now and from the looks of things nahida aint helping that. swirl would, pls hoyoshit.

No. 243403

nahidas burst deals 0 damage of its own, shes an albedo style sub dps with an elemental mastery boost which… is a win for people who didnt want her like myself, but another weird decision. they just released two dps that need a dendro support yet theres no dendro support in sight?

No. 243404

Now I'm just scared that Alhaitham will be a support.

File: 1664441488713.png (11.95 MB, 4096x2116, FdtTvl9VQAA4QcK2.png)

I actually love her as well. I'm not crazy about the sleepy overworked trope but her design is honestly one of the best female ones they've released in a long while. No weird coomer shit other than her armpits, and who cares, at this point all female characters have those weird sleeveless attachments. I'm just happy she has a cute outfit that doesn't have any booty shorts, thigh high socks or stripper cut outs.

Dendro can't be swirled because VV is OP in every single team other than Geo (and now Dendro). Hoyoverse is most likely kicking themselves for ever introducing such a busted artifact set because you can slap it on even unbuilt anemo characters and still improve your team by a lot. Why pull for or build any other units if you can just throw Kazuha/Sucrose/Venti into all of your teams and do way better than if you used 99% of other supports?

Anyway, did anyone else pull Cyno and is now kind of regretting it? I don't have a single Dendro character other than Traveler and Collei… and I really don't want to build my Traveler to make one DPS do decent numbers. And those beetles he needs for his ascension are such a pain in the ass to find, not even the Inazuma beetles are as bad as some of the Sumeru ascension materials.

No regrets at all. As soon as they release a dendro support that works like Xingqiu/Yelan Cyno will work well enough I think. We may have to wait a while for that but there's plenty of upcoming dendro units. I just wish Baizhu was coming out earlier. No new units for 3.4 is such an odd decision.

No. 243763

I honestly hate how much they're trying to shill this pedobait and a lot of women like her for some reason. Even personality wise I think she's boring, her gameplay seems weird and her design is the worst so far among the archons. I guess flashy bursts and animations are more attractive.

No. 243764

She's just cute, and her design isn't as bad as Raiden's. That said, if she has any sort of "dook dook" voiceline I'm absolutely refusing to pull for her

No. 243765

I don't understand why people are going so crazy over Layla so bad and gushing about her, as described above she looks like a fan character and sounds lame as hell with the overworked waifu but cryo trope. What am I missing here? Is it just because she looks like a sadgirl Miku skin?

Mihoyo lost some of their main writers in late 2020 after launch over some disagreements and the new team had to work with what they left them with in Inazuma, leaving it the mess it turned out to be. With Sumeru they likely had more time and competence to construct a story I guess.

Her personality sounds really boring from what we know so far, but I like that she is actually pretty covered up and deviating from the usual designs HYV loves to give the female characters. Her hood is cute, her big pigtails are cute, the poofy part covering her butt is cute, her thicker brows and dark circles are cute.
I don't know, I just think she looks good lol. And way better than the slutty looking characters like Shenhe who never learned what pants are or the ones that just have the same old booba + thigh high + pussy flap (Layla still has a little one but I'd rather take that over a huge cameltoe like Jean's) combo we have been seeing over and over and over for years now. She has some elements that I really hate like the armpit fetish but it's still a nicer design than the ones for a lot of the women in this game.
I also generally like her aesthetic and color scheme, shame that she is a 4 star because her E and Q probably would have been very pretty if she had 5 star animations.

Nta but It's boring as fuck and it isn't telling us anything about her personality. Unlike Venti, the best designed archon so far, whose outfit gives us enough hints to know who he is.
If you saw this and you didn't know anything about her, you would think she's either some random playable character or even a weirdly decorated NPC.
The more you look at it the worse it gets, I didn't notice how her shirtless sleeves didn't cover her trapezius completely, the hair brooch is ugly and makes no sense, it would be less retarded if the flowers had literally any other color, the random shoulder armor that covers nothing, the asymmetrical sleeves, the boring shoes with the random flowers.
It's all just ugly, she doesn't look like a shogun, she doesn't look like a neet, she doesn't look like a goddess that used to hate humanity's ever changing lives.
I also don't like how her face is too rounded, she should've had sharper eyes at least, she hated traveler and didn't want to leave her neetcave until traveler forced her to get the fuck out with fox bitch's help.
They could've done so many cool things to make her a coomer stereotype and also a cool warrior, but they gave us a protagonist's dead mom.

No. 243808

NTA but jesus christ her design does get worse the more you look at it, nothing about it says "great warrior master" like she supposedly is, she looks like a mix between a soft flower girl and an anime mom, neither fitting her background story or actions. At least Venti looks exactly like a bard and Zhongli's suitcoat fits his position as a dignified funeral consultant but what the fuck is this. Even Nahida despite being a loli looks much better than her. Fuck, even Makoto in the flashbacks has a better design.

>I didn't notice how her shirtless sleeves didn't cover her trapezius completely

This has been my huge pet peeve about her outfit since she was released, it makes no fucking sense to have those holes. Is that part something weeb coomers want to smell and lick too?

not to mention its literally a bootleg of raita's raikou in fgo which was already god awful. it's apparent that her design was heavily influenced by that particular depiction of raikou/raita/raiden. apart from the immediate resemblance it's the only depiction of the male thunder god that even vaguely resembles genshin impact's raiden, and one of the only female depictions him as well.

Impulse rolled a single intertwined fate in Venti's machine at 23 pity (with guaranteed banner char) and got Venti.

I shouldn't be surprised, but I'm very used to being a lucklet. I didn't get any 5* characters below 70 pity for the longest time, but lately I keep getting shit I don't want at 10-30 pity. 15 pity 50/50 Shenhe, 29 pity 50/50 Childe. I'll be able to get way more use out of Venti than Childe or Shenhe, but there's so many upcoming characters that I want. Nahida, Alhaitam, Scaramouche, Dehya.

Unpopular opinion, but I actually liked her, she seemed to be rebellious in her thinking that the time of adepti is over, straightforward, rude and uncompromising.

You guys don't ever roll for 4-stars? I feel compelled to collect them all, and I don't have a Kuki or a Candace, so…

I guess the real answer is to just wait for the 4-stars to appear on a banner I'm more interested in. I can't help but want to try to "game the system" by building pity on 4-stars I want so that I don't get constellations for 4-stars I don't care about when I'm rolling for the 5-stars I want.

I wonder if people were complaining about floor 12 being too difficult or whether they just wanted people to be able to clear with their shiny new Cynos.

You're absolutely delusional if you think there's only one anon who dislikes Keqing.

The new year event was just a few months after the Moonchase festival which was, again, trying to make Keqing take a break and open up to people. Literally the same story repeated, just dragged out for a longer period. They really hammered in the overworked diligent waifu shit with her in two separate events and only made her more insufferable.

"Building pity" is a scam, don't do it. If you only want the new 4-stars it's just not worth it to waste your wishes and full pity on a banner you don't want. I had to miss out on a few simply because they were on a banner for a 5-star I didn't want because I'd rather save my rolls than waste them on a pure gamble seeing how 5-stars are tied to a pity, 4-stars aren't.

Saying that Genshin is a "waifu game" is scrote gaslighting anyway. I know that the game has a shit male to female character total ratio but when we only compare limited 5 star characters it's close to 50:50, and most of the 4-star female characters are just filler to begin with. The story and the events feature playable male characters like Xiao and Kazuha as important figures, including the current one with Razor as its focus.

I actually can't name another (non-joseimuke) gacha that gives us so many male characters made for female consumption. Literally none of the male characters in this game are ugly male power fantasies like old geezers, hideous bald muscle mountains or furries, it's obvious they're created to pander to women. Scrotes can die mad about it and I hope Chinese husbandosisters will continue to drop their paycheck on the boys to keep Mihoyo giving us more and fix the problem with DPS disparity.

I feel like such a fake fan for finally starting Razor's event even though he's my favorite character and my main loyalty to this game. It's been 2 years and we finally get some backstory he's deserved! I just started and I'm really liking Lisa. She's so patient and caring and shows that she thinks about what's best for this feral child's development. She understands that his position is more precarious than any other child's and fuck that ara ara mommy stuff, I wanna hang out in the library and drink tea.
The only thing that ruined my mood was Paimon. I was just starting to like her when she said "It's just a junk! Did Varka get the boxes mixed up?"

I thought there would be a letter." or something like that. There's a lot of threads about it on Twitter right now if you want to look more into it.
Have you considered playing in Korean or Chinese? I've noticed that most people that hate Paimon play with the JP or EN dub. I play with the CN dub the vast majority of the time and Paimon actually sounds very adorable and calm.

And Tighnari has such a normal ikemen voice in Chinese as well. He literally sounds like a woman in the JP dub, I have no idea what they were thinking.

No. 244313

Albedo's voice only sounds good in Korean, and Tighnari's JP voice makes me think of Goku.

No. 244324

I switched to Korean and a lot of tall characters sound great! I prefer Ayato, Kaeya, Ninggung, Zhongli and Itto in kr (esp with how regal and lofty Ningguang sounds), but the short guys… I wouldn't even be able to tell what gender Bennett and Gorou were if I only heard their voices. Paimon is definitely and upgrade, though; so, thanks for the tip! I'll try Chinese now

No. 244326

I personally love the Japanese dub and I think Tighnari sounds really cute and the feminine voice fits him, but all the female characters sound horrible compared to the Chinese dub. The anime waifu voice grates my ear to the point it's one of the reasons I refuse to use female characters in the game.

No. 244331

Tigs JP voice is a woman.

I play in JP because I understand it, I hate amateur English VA's and can't stand the sound of Chinese and Korean.

Just tried the Chinese dub and Kaeya sounds great in it too. Someone mentioned once that Kaeya's Japanese voice is too played and comes off as sleazy, etc. and after hearing the different voices I now see how the jpn va is kind of playing a caricature. Korean could be so perfect, but Bennett sounds like a 6 year old and it's killing me. One of the few things jpn got right was a more boyish voice for him. No matter which language I pick sacrifices are gonna be made!

No. 244335

Obviously his VA is a woman, it still sounds terrible. He's just a flat chested girl to me in the JP dub.

I think CN is worth it just for Paimon and the female characters. It's nice to run around with the girls and not feel like you are participating in an oneesan or loli fetish just because of the way their voices sound.

No. 244351

I'm not attracted to the girls and I'm used to the anime style so it doesn't bug me. I just wish there were more deep voiced guys. Most of the deep voices are non-human NPC's…

No. 244352

It's true, I wish we could just pick whichever voices we want for the characters tbh, then I would pick certain VAs for certain characters and such.

No. 244353

You're def right about that. I randomly clicked on Sara's voiceline for snow in Chinese and it gave a melancholic vibe that made me like her. It's amazing how the right voice acting can give a character depth the story lacks. Chinese sounds good overall it's just that I don't know if I can catch up with the cadence things are said with the eng subs. This was a fun little experiment though, nonnies!
I'm not checking twitter, but why do they always fuck up eng translations for jpn? It's almost like it's intentional at this point.

No. 244376

Do you just not play any other gachas that aren't josei? Genshin is far from a shining example of a co ed gacha pandering to women. It's on the lower end.

Anons that have Cyno and don’t hate Nahida should I pull for Cyno or wait for Nahida. I only have like 80 pulls. I think Nahida design is super cute, but her attack animations are a bit too cutesy. I’m not really a lolifag but she is so darn cute. I not going to lie though they should have just given her the teen body type instead of her being a 500 year old child and the more that I think about it is kind of disappointing. I test played Cyno and enjoyed him a bit, but I don’t know anything about his personality, and I know it’s silly, but I don’t like playing characters with personalities I don’t like. That’s why I have Zhongli but don’t play him. I was also hoping to get Layla but if I wish for Cyno I won’t wish on Nahida banner. … I don’t know what to do. I also I don’t think I have a team comp for Cyno.

No. 244416

Cyno's a badass fighter who takes down lawbreakers but he also likes bad jokes and playing card games, kind of gap. He's pretty stoic in the quest though. But are you a new player who hasn't even done the Liyue story quest yet? How do you not know Zhongli's personality.

No. 244420

I have Cyno and love his personality but I think maybe you could wait. Now Nahida won’t be great with him either gameplay wise so honestly I’d recommend to wait for Al Haitham, Baizhu or Kaveh (all dendro) and then pull Cyno. Some sus leaks are even saying Cyno will have a rerun around the time these three roll out

>jp dub sucks
Overall I agree, but I changed to it, because my most used characters sounded better in it (plus Benny sounds like a husbando in it, in others he is like a child)

No. 244451

Funny how people saying this never mention examples or try to pass shit like Arknights as one, Granblue Fantasy is literally the only gacha that has an almost equal ratio but it's a shit game with barely any gameplay but instead everyone just looks at the pretty PNGs. I guess at least it doesn't have the annoying metafags for that.

No. 244487

Nta but how do you know? I thought he was like 15-16 with a careless and childish personality. I like the more boyish voice because I just hate when males sound like regular girls.

No. 244489

I also think he sounds 15-16 in the Japanese dub, he makes me think of fantasy anime protagonists.

No. 244491

Does anyone even know why Hoyo doesn't assign the same type of voice for characters in all languages? There are times when they're similar but other times you get something like Bennett(3 voiced by women and 1 by a man) or Tighnari (3 by a man and 1 by a woman)?

No. 244493

NTA but I thought Bennett was closer to being an older teenager in the 16-19 range since the Adventure Guild wouldn't accept literal children to be killed during quests and his cognitive abilities are clearly mature enough to contemplate his own death and abilities in his character profile.

No. 244495

I'd almost suspect that anon of being a twitterina because they're the ones who insist on Bennett being "minor coded" or whatever the term is these days.

No. 244498

he does look and act like a child, tard. 12-14, same as xingqiu and his voice reflects it in every language but japanese. it isn't anymore tumblr-y to say it about him than it is to say it about kusanali.

No. 244539

No way anyone besides the child model characters is actually a child, anon. They go off alone working for days at a time and often risk getting killed. Same with Xingqiu, why would he be allowed to go to Inazuma without a chaperone if he was 12? Compare this to when Klee goes out and usually has someone like Jean or Albedo babysitting her even though she's a person of mass destruction and can protect herself.

No. 244545

The only ages we have confirmed are Diluc and amber’s age in the manga. Unless they’re obvious Pedo bait we shouldn’t care if a character "feels like a minor"

No. 244555

Xingqiu is also a published author and takes care of the Feiyun guild's affairs which wouldn't make sense if he was an actual child, Klee is mostly just a cute mascot character which is why she's shoehorned in with the knights. He and Bennett both share the same model as Albedo who's unquestionably mature and a well-educated scientist so calling them 12-14 is a huge reach especially because the game has actual child male model used for characters like Teucer and Ruu. It's clear that they're younger than Kaeya or Itto but they're more comparable to the teenage girl model.

>Do you have a stable income?
Yes. I make enough that I don't live paycheck to paycheck, but not much more.
>How much have you spent on Genshin Impact?
About $60, all on Welkin's and a couple of BPs.
>How much have you spent on gacha games other than Genshin Impact?
Around $30 on Puzzle and Dragons, which I treated more as a donation than anything, since there's no pity system, and I have around 800 hours in that game.
>Will you keep spending money on Genshin Impact?
Yes, I'll keep buying Welkin's, and BP if I want one of the weapons and I manage to finish it.

>How much have you spent on gacha games other than Genshin Impact?

Welkin and BP only, I'll just skip banners I can't afford.

Even if I had a job I wouldn't spend a penny on gatcha or overpriced cosmetic skins. I only pay for story content and then only on a game I really like.
It will probably take another 3-5 years for the devs to add all the new regions and story but then who knows how much longer the game will last. Not sinking money into a free always online game when you don't know when they might cut the servers.

No. 244593

Treating a gacha game like an investment is retarded redditoid cryptobro behavior. You're paying for an extra experience in a game you otherwise play for free, not something that will grow in value over time. Sure Genshin might have the plug pulled tomorrow and I'd lose the Diluc skin I paid for but at least I got 2 years worth of fun times from the game for less than one AAA title that I finished in 50 hours and never returned to.

? kids fucking off with no supervision is normal as fuck in animu worlds. you must have some intense brainrot to think this looks legal. and don't start with "m-muh model limitations" either because he looks and acts just as childish in all fan depictions. why obsess over whether or not your 12 year old looking sonsbandos are canonically underage or not like a guilty moid? this isn't twitter, no one's going to cancel you for liking them. weirdest hill to die on.

No. 244611

I see the short guy characters as just manlets/late bloomers and Benny's personality totally reads to me like a cheerful shounen hero—he even has the backstory for being an interesting protagonist! The other dubs may have a theme of a super squeaky girl voice but a boyish non-prepubescent voice suits him imo. People can headcanon ages all they want, but the one thing I'm glad that hoyo did was leave the ages undetermined. There are kid models for a reason and Bennett and the others don't have them. I had to switch back to Japanese dub cause I couldn't stand Bennett's girl voice.

On the flip side you can always return to that AAA game in the future and replay it again to your heart's content anytime you want. The same can't be said for Genshin, where once an event is gone, it's gone and you're regulated to rewatching it on Youtube.
