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.

No. 239896

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.

No. 240371

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.

I like when we can reflect on dark moments in history but for a gacha game why couldn't they make fictional Japan more lighthearted—and dare I say—kawaii?

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.

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.

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 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.

>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

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.

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.

No. 243136

I mean you were pulling for Candace who legitimately sucks so you really shouldn’t be sad about Cyno! Yes he depends on a electro + dendro reaction but it looks like he’ll be really good once he has a good dendro support. I think you should be happy C1 Cyno! You got 2 more patches until Scara so it should be fine if you start grinding from primos now. 20 wishes from the anniversary gift too btw.

He's exactly as everyone expected him to be: average, about like having a second Keqing that looks cooler but has a long burst he can't switch out of like Razor.

Most of the tall guys should have big butts like Zhongli's, except childe, he doesn't deserve a big butt for being a sexy Russian spy.

I honestly don't understand why people sleep on Itto so much, he's like the easiest DPS to play ever and his bonks deliver tens of ks damage at minimum per hit, his attack scaling from his defense makes it so he doesn't die or stun and at c6 he breaks the game so bad Chinese players were seething to death over him powercreeping waifus.

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 think part of the fun with Cyno is trying almost everything. between using Thundering Fury or Glided Dreams (or even Gladiator set kek) and which teammates to use with him

No. 243401

>dendro reactions as a whole have so many problems that would all be solved if dendro could just be swirled.
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.

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.

Doesn't matter how hot his voice is when he's so damn evil. Seriously human experimentation is over the line. Reading all those notes about the disease and experiments was sorta creeping me out.

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?"

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

No. 244493

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.

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.

No. 244727

Stop the fucking infight about character ages, I get enough of this shit on Twitter I don't need it here. This is why Mihoyo didn't give out official ages, because you're supposed to make your own interpretations. Bennett can be 14 or 18 depending on who you're asking.

The only event that this really applies to is the summer archipelago because it offers an entire map to explore but as for the rest I really don't think having just a few extra quests or minigames is something to consider a loss. Yes it sucks that the Irodori festival for example can't be replayed because it had essential lore related to Scaramouche and the Kaedehara clan explained in it and the people who started playing this year must be confused if they didn't experience the falling stars event but most of the content stays in the game. Overall you get new content every 3-4 weeks when a new patch is released and pay nothing for it so dropping a couple of bucks on something that you play every day for years is a pretty good deal to me. I rarely replay the one-time purchase titles that I get until literal years have passed because at most they have one new game+ exclusive dungeon or quest and all the actual revisions and new content is saved for a sequel that you have to pay once again for.

You also get weapons from those exclusive events, in Albedo's case one of his best weapons comes from a timed event. If you didn't get it beforehand, then now you're pretty much waiting for the future where Mihoyo maybe releases either the sword, or another character to justify creating a similar weapon.
To each their own, some games have replay value more than others that makes me want to try it again, but take a different route. I just prefer having to pay a set price for something, and not have the thought that I may missed out on something, or have to play catch-up to understand character/story #908 motivations or backstory.

NTA either but I kind of had the same initial reaction, but then I thought about it more and I see what you mean.

All the "medium body size males" feel (physically) under 18 to me except Cyno, Kazuha, Albedo, and Tighnari, who definitely feel like manlets to me, despite being the same size as the others.

I can definitely see reasonable interpretations of most other short male characters as around 18 years old.

However, I personally can't really see Xingqiu, Chongyun, or Venti as much physically older than 16. Other anon was probably having a kneejerk reaction to the implication that characters like those are just short adults.

Well according to the new event, razor is canonically underage. When mona talks about drinking wine fischl doesn't say anything about it, implying she's also underage

Hmm, according to the fandom wiki, there's slight variation in height, but it includes hair so it's a little hard to say.

Xiao and Albedo are the shortest "medium males" at 162.X cm, and Heizou is the tallest at 166.9 cm.

The difference is pretty minimal, and I wonder if it would be closer to 0 if the characters were compared without hair at all.

Ok so you just base characters age on your own feeling, thats fine and all but you know that other people also do that? Kazuha and venti litteraly look so much a like that i dont understand your logic with how venti doesnt look physically older. They all have the same anime style.

Anyway this argument is stupid, imo all characters are adults except the "loli" characters.

Look if we even have to have this debate it means it doesn't matter since it's so up for interpretation. The loli model is obviously a child but the medium male can just be a cute manlet. I sure hope all the people treating them as "shotas" treat the medium females as lolis too.

That makes sense tbh, Chongyun, Xinqiu, Razor and Bennet seem younger than 18, I say they're around 15-16 years old.
The others feel definitely older. Venti is weird though, he has the body of his dead best friend, who was supposed to be a teen, yet people let him drink, meanwhile, traveler is always told to have alcohol free versions of drinks with no buts.
Anyways, I loved this event, Mondstadt's events are always great, and I don't know, they really manage to tug your heartstrings.

I think the Traveler not being able to drink isn't necessarily because they're underage, the writers were making different excuses at different times.

>oh I believe that all the short male characters are adults for umm very legitimate reasons (and totally not just because I'm terribly afraid to be called a pedo by 14 yr olds on Twitter)

Xingqiu's story is all about being a child prodigy, he talks about his family all the time, he looks like a shota, and his title is literally "Juvenile Gallant." Thinking he's underage is not just based on feelings, and you're stretching canon way more when you insist that every single character is an adult than people who say that some characters are probably underage.

But it's fucking fine if you want to ship underage characters. Most people here are not "antis" or whatever and are not looking to bite your head off for it. Just don't draw or consume literal shota porn.

Also, plenty of people here have argued about the short woman model in similar ways. Consensus is generally that Fischl is probably underage, while Keqing is almost certainly an adult based on her years of serious job experience. Other characters tend to fall somewhere in-between.

You see less arguments about the girls because scrotes don't give even half a fuck about being hebephiles– they're too busy debating the ethics of jerking it to nahida feet.

They're literally just a bunch of shippers kek. It's obvious the male characters aren't straight up shotas, but like the traveler they're your regular shonen anime protagonist and characters. They're designed to look like teenagers. Imo it's fine if you ship two teen characters in a fluffy way, but even if it's porn I can see someone interpreting them as 18 year olds (who look younger because of the anime style). Either way nothing will ever be as bad as moids making porn of a character that's very obviously a child like Klee.

honestly agree, Mihoyo is just a bunch of cheapskates that can't give us varying heights or body types so I doubt all the characters are canonically locked inside a slot with only a 5-centimeter deviation so treating these as "canon heights" is terminally retarded.

By your argument Bennett is overage, since he says he wants to share wine with Traveler and Razor once their bottle is ready. Since Traveler is over 500 and still isn't allowed to drink in Mondstadt that's kind of a dumb argument imo.

This is the most logical height comparison, I found it on Reddit, so I don't know why they had to add that other character from a completely different source.

This is pathetic. Reminds me of when mihoyo reused kaeya's animations for bennett and cucks were trying to make up lore justifications for it KEK.


With the exception of Hu Tao, they do look of age? Women being 5'3 isnt weird but for men it is and it makes them all look like children. Scrotes wouldn't care whether they were legal or not either way.

The in-game heights probably aren't 'canon', but those measurements are probably taken using the gameworld scale. Game developers generally try to create things with 'real' heights to keep things simple.

I believe that this chart is calculated by ordering the chars in order of their datamined heights (picrel). But OP ignored how tall they actually are in relation to each other.
The datamined heights list Ningguang's height as 1.80 meters (5'11), and Beidou and Jean's heights as 1.73 meters (5'8). In the chart, Ningguang is about 5'11, but Jean is about 5'6, and Beidou around 5'8. If you load Ningguang and Jean/Beidou onto a team and swap between them quickly, it's pretty apparent that they're very close to the same height. This lines up better with Fandom's estimates of 170, 170, and 171 cm.

There should also be a significant jump in height between Venti and Jean. In-game, Venti's eyes are at about the level of Jean's chin. Qiqi is also monstrously tall for her proportions in the chart kek. Lolis always look kind of uncanny but this is too much.

The datamined height most likely represents the height of their vertical collision box rather than their apparent heights. This mostly lines up with their apparent heights, but it seems like it's handled somewhat arbitrarily for characters with hats.

Unfortunately, this chart seems less accurate to the in-game heights than the Fandom.com estimates. I do think this chart more-or-less makes sense for fanfic or headcanons, though.

No. 245206

They're the same "height" because they're only varying the model heights by a very small deviation (a couple of centimeters) in order to not have to create an entirely new model with different proportions so the ones measured in-game are only indicative (i.e. "tall or not tall"), I really have no idea how autistic you have to be in order to not understand this holy shit. There's a reason Itto looks so buff in a lot of the artwork but has noodle arms in his model.

Seriously how the fuck can spergs in this thread blame fujos for "talking about anything but the game" when weird ass redditoids drag infights on with muh datamined height charts FOR DAYS just to prove that women who think Bennett, Venti and Xingqiu are cute are actually "hebephiles" in denial and on par with scrotes jerking it to Nahida feet.

Conveniently the shotabaiting disappeared entirely after going on for literally days after he outed himself, the "i-it wasn't the tranny, it was just him faking his part!!!" is actual ropium for the fellow degenerates who took his side and so is the "it was just one moralfag who didn't like child porn!!!" when there were at least 4 different anons telling pedofags to take their shotashit out. It's way, way too much of a coincidence for this same fucking "ackshually you're all shotacons too" debate to start over in this thread again.

It is him, no doubt about it. He fucking hates fujos and knows there's overlap with the anons in this thread and the fujo thread so he's found his niche in trying to paint them all with a broad shotacon brush just like he did before to bait infighting.

No. 245223

>"i-it wasn't the tranny, it was just him faking his part!!!"
This is true. He frequently claims to be posters all over the site to prove he can "blend in," when we know from the distinct incoherent word salad ever-present in all his posts that his claims are false.
He is a straight man with no interest in BL shota or BL in general, he simply did that because of his love for shit stirring and hatred for fujos; he was trying to put a target on their backs by reducing their interests to tranny shit. You and only you fell for it that time because he claimed to be on the side of the anons you have a personal vendetta against. So in a way it worked but he overestimated how big of an impact it would cause. The infighting stopped naturally because it had gone on for several days and it became very clear you and the tranny were the only ones still invested in it at that stage. Everyone else had learned to moved on and ignore you two.

I understand this. I just think it's fun to explain where different supposed character height measurements come from, as it seems to be a pretty popular point of debate among the fanbase. People who care enough to look into it themselves can pretty clearly see that characters with the same base model have at most barely visible differences in height. But fandom is a different beast, and urban myths like this (and that characters don't use the same base models LMFAO) get spread around like crazy.

This chart alone is probably responsible for making quite a few people believe that the characters have meaningfully different heights.

I'm just having fun being autistic and debunking sources of misinfo, even if I know that it doesn't matter at all.

(And though the height conversation started when the age debate started, it's been a fairly real discussion that's pretty separate from the ree'ing.)

No. 245499

It’s risky. Never pull for a 4-star on a banner where you don’t like the 5-star. Also the Sumeru 4-stars in general seem easy to get, leakers are saying dori is gonna be free soon. Sucks for the people who wasted their primos on her

dont pull for 4 stars, you might get layla anyway when pulling for scara or maybe when u pull on the standard banner. The higher rate ups for 4 stars are legit a scam. Pulled on itto banner and my gorou is still only c4 and two of those cons i didnt even get on the itto banner but from different event banners and the standard banner, but i do have c1 itto now kek.

No. 245546

Like others already said, never pull for 4 stars on a banner for a 5 star you don't want, especially if the 5 star banner you want is coming up soon. It never works out. You're only guaranteed to get a 4-star every 10 wishes and it can be a weapon, one of the two other rate-up characters you don't want or an entirely different 4-star. The odds are stacked against you in every way and it's too much of a risky gamble, I know people who had to waste almost 100 rolls just to get one Gorou when he was one of the featured 4 stars. I guess one 10 roll is safe enough but honestly, I wouldn't do it.

No. 245554

Other anons are mostly right. However, what's your current pity? How many rolls will you have by the time Scara's banner starts?
If you're only going for C0, you can safely spend so long as you'll still have 180 rolls for Scara's banner. (You could even count the rolls you gain during Scara's banner if you know you're dedicated to earning primos.)
Anons are acting like you're risking your guaranteed Scara by rolling, but that's not necessarily the case.
However, absolutely do NOT do it if you do not like Nahida and wouldn't use her. It would be better to miss out on the increased Layla rates and to save your rolls for another 5-star.

Thank you so much frens I needed that assurance as my friend kept insisting that the 10 wishes won't hurt but you guys are %100 right she'll probably pop at any time like Xinyan does lol

Current pity is 56 and I think I'll have more than enough for him if I ignore the Nahida banner. I've won the 50/50 3 times in a row and I don't think my luck will let me win it a 4th time . I like Nahida as an Archon and would be neat if added to my collection but I dislike the child 3D models I don't know why kek so I don't feel that bad not getting her until her next rerun

No. 245699

Oh god, scara is like 100% anemo? Not bad that he is not electro, since that's a kinda trashy element. But couldn't they retcon him into cryo or pyro instead? Is there some lore reason for anemo I am not aware of? I have no idea what should mihoyo do to make him a viable unit, considering the likes of kazuha, venti and xiao.

No. 245710

Mihoyo is unfortunately weird af about the gender ratios of certain elements, it's fucked up we don't have a 5-star cryo guy when that's one of the best elements, but it's clearly purposeful at this point. I suppose at least the idea behind scara being anemo is that presumably he's supposed to finally be free in some capacity he wasn't before, he also perfectly fits the anemo pattern of being a manlet who lost a friend. Anyway, we don't have full leaks of his kit or anything yet, but he's supposedly going to be like a 5-star Heizou

No. 245714

If we look at the leaks of him being a 5-star Heizou I'm guessing that he's supposed to be replacing Venti (or rather being an upgraded Venti) as the best anemo boy as he's possibly being given crowd control and DPS utilities. If he turns out to have an amazing kit I won't be so mad at Mihoyo for the element change.

No. 245753

>5-star Heizou
>replacing Venti
Heizou and Venti could not be less similar in their roles to each other. Heizou is a dps with very poor cc abilities and Venti is a support specifically for cc. If you were going to compare what we can expect from scara to the currently available anemo 5-stars, it would make more sense to compare him to Xiao, but even then, I wouldn't suggest the idea of Xiao getting "replaced" since their playstyles will still be very different despite both being anemo dps. It might end up being something of a ganyu vs ayaka situation between them though

Last anon here. My bad, I didn't realize that the 56 rolls you mentioned were your current pity. I thought you had 160 full wishes saved up and was wondering why

I crunched the numbers for funsies. If you lost the 50/50, bought Welkin's, did every event (assuming low-to-average event frequency and primos), got an low-to-average amount of maintenance primos, got 27 stars in each Spiral Abyss, and did every commission, you'd barely make it to 180 rolls by the last day of Scara's banner, assuming it's the first banner of 3.3 and lasts only two weeks. Any extra primos you earn from unexpectedly high event rewards, quests, opening chests, battle pass, etc could safely be spent on Nahida's first banner.
But still, assuming you won't miss a single thing is a bit of a gamble in of itself.

Now to be the devil whispering in your ear:
It's exceedingly rare (<1% chance) to not hit pity until after 85 rolls. Taking that chance would free up 10 rolls.
At 80 rolls, the cumulative probability of having rolled a 5-star is 91.8%. There's only a 0.67% chance of having to exceed 80 rolls for a 5-star twice in a row, and you won't have to even make that gamble unless you win the Nahida 50/50 and lose the Scara 50/50. If you're willing to gamble on that, too, that's another 10 rolls.
It seems like you're going to roll for Nahida eventually anyways, so why not roll on a little on the banner that has the 4-stars you want?

(but the biggest gamble of all is whether you'd actually get a Layla in the 20-ish rolls you might be able to spare for her. 43% at 20 rolls. is that chance worth spending months scrounging for primos and hoping that you won't be part of the unluckiest 1%?)

Yeah, I had the same thought. I found the leaker tweet that compares Scara to Venti, but I haven't found anything comparing him to Heizou besides pure speculation.

As autistic as Childe's fighting hyperfixation is he's still actively doing something even if it is just fucking things up, and Scaramouche despite being the target of mommy issues memes has a background and plot connecting to the current events of the game. With Signora she just existed as a "Snezhnayan diplomat" ara-araing on the Traveler. I agree that her death was really lame and that she could've been a great character if allowed to exist and develop for longer, but I don't understand why people act like she was super deep and compelling.

The sickness that Dottore experimented on, think it was called Elazar, is definitely the curse from Khaenri’ah. I think that’s how they’re gonna make him playable.

Webtoon Dottore didn't do anything other than laugh evilly for 3 panels, defeat a monster off-screen and have some autistic fits. They clearly retconned his character and made up this new clone of him because nobody would've pulled for the old version.

There's no way they will try to woobify Dottore this way. Seriously, they'll just make up a random nice clone and then give us that guy to play as, I think that was the entire point of even introducing the clone thing.

Maybe hilichurls actually have scales, but the game has to simplify such details so the mobile players can play on their potatoes.
And the official hilichurl art often is all cute-fyed, so they can't just make the scale details.
Or they're named scales because they're literal scales that humans can develop. Spoiler for skin condition pictures, I was curious, I wouldn't be surprised if the inspiration for the Elazar illness is a mix of these two.

No. 246093

I have some hypotheses, I'm just basically writing a headcanons at this point:
>The curse has worsened over the time
It could be that the curse has become more and more unbearable, so now there's people that just stop moving, they become "monsters" but they just die instead of going feral/becoming primitive.
>the curse only immobilizes certain people
Maybe those that are pure of heart or that are innocent won't be able to move, and those that are wicked become primal beasts that after the curse rots them too much, they go to the chasm to find a final rest.

File: 1665428738208.png (47.25 KB, 198x122, eleazar.png)

NTA but I did consider this myself since it would tie a lot of loose ends together but what makes it complicated is that Eleazar is only found in Sumeru and it predates the catalyst (i.e. fall of Khaenri'ah) by thousands of years. We also saw how the scales looked like on Dunyarzad's hands and they were a lot bigger, clearly lizard-like. Another thing is that it's said to be connected to the withering being described as "the withering but in a human form", while the forests of Sumeru ease its symptoms (probably because they're infused by the dendro archon's power?). The current archon story also revealed that first cases started appearing when king Deshret released "forbidden knowledge" into his kingdom, so maybe it's related to knowing something about the world he wasn't supposed to?. The Chinese name 魔鳞病 translates to "demon scale disease" but the English translation name to "God has helped" which I don't know if it's intentional, but interesting still.

All in all, I don't think it's tied to Khaenri'ah. Collei's symptoms have been mentioned to be completely stopped by Dottore's experiments and seeing how he's been meddling with gods' powers with the false god shit, it could be connected to them. Sorry for spazzing out about this but it's a very interesting thing to think how it ties to the world as a whole.

Interesting points anon! I love when we discuss the lore here. But I was thinking about the part about forbidden knowledge. Isn’t that kind of why celestia cursed khaenri’ah? They went against the heavenly principles and created a godless nation that could create life through the art of Kemia. Forbidden knowledge is the similarity with Sumeru and Eleazar.

No. 246661

Khaenri'ah had some forbidden knowledge, like Enjou looking for proof that Celestia were not the original gods, but it seems more and more like Celestia smote Khaenri'ah because they were waging all out war on the populace of Teyvat. Look at all the Ruin machines left behind centuries after Khaenri'ah got rekt. The huge robot mechs abandoned in Sumeru and the Wolflord in Inazuma are WMD level threats. The Ruin Serpents in the Chasm were killing thousands of soldiers until Bosacius and Yelan's ancestor sealed them in the depths.

I hope Khaenri'ah's obvious misdeeds aren't glossed over in the end. Like yeah Celestia is evil but what the fuck was Khaenri'ah doing with all those weapons, you know?

Yes because she's a child, and also because she seems to be preoccupied with it. It's one thing for Bennett to get the shits to illustrate his bad luck - not something I particularly want to know about either - and another to have your loli archon actually interested in it. Mihoyo know exactly what sort of scrote Nahida appeals to like >>246888 said, and are pandering to the absolute worst of them

No. 247050

Bennett mentioning runny shits while adventuring because of his quirk (the bad luck) is a bit different than a child pedobait character just being obsessed with it because?? But also yeah hoeyoverse needs to tone down the fetish pandering because at this point it's embarassing. The see through clothes, the armpits, poop jokes, feet, lolis and boob jiggling are becoming a little too much imo.

No. 247054

Come on, that dookie thing is just a bad attempt at trying to give her a "funny" reoccurring joke because poop funny haha, not some loli scat fetish propaganda. Most of the diarrhea/shit talk is added by the English localization team too so take your complaints to them, for example Bennett's voiceline about Jueyun chilis only talks about how they give him trouble breathing in the original one but for the English line includes that mention about giving him diarrhea for no reason at all. The same goes for his teapot dialogue.

They're much better, you actually get to give a fuck about the NPCs, which aren't annoying, and the stories aren't just some miscellaneous shit that has barely anything to do with the important shit like the archons.
The only annoying one is the archon quest tbh, but it's still quite interesting because it makes you think unlike other quests where all you have to do is beat up something and give an npc a thing.

none will. tighnari was created to go on standard banner like the other standard banner 5 stars. event characters will remain event exclusive. at most, they may make a geo character for standard banner in the future so there will be one of each element but never expect to see historically event exclusive ones join it until the game starts dying.

No. 248155

Yeah exactly. Mihoyo can create new characters that they add to the standard banner but they would have to announce it first. If they add an event exclusive character and out of the blue add them in the standard, they could get in legal trouble in China. You cannot sell something as an exclusive and then, without announcing it beforehand like Tigh, put them on the standard.

No. 248158

it's extremely unlikely they could get in legal trouble over it, that and the legal trouble over nerfing meme are both rumors that the western community who have no prior experience with chinese media let alone video games made up. but doing it wouldn't benefit them in any way. they design these event characters with overpowered constellations with the intention of forcing people to spend a lot to get them in their short availability periods. adding them to standard banner where they could pop up at any time as freebies would defeat the point of that.

No. 248162

NTA but it's a parody of the YWNBAW copypasta, I assume the purpose of making a Scaramouche version is because a ton of tifs like to headcanon/claim that he's also a tif on account of it seeming odd that Ei would choose to make a male puppet as any sort of replacement for herself or Makoto

It's just a joke at how he's trying to be a god that mommy said he couldn't be like troons want to be the women they can never become, it's got nothing to do with tranny headcanons. It's kind of funny tbh and I love Scaramouche.

It's looking like banners are as follows:
3.3: Scaramouche (5 Anemo catalyst) and Faruzan (4 Anemo bow)
3.4: Alhaitham (5 dendro sword) and Yaoyao (4 dendro polearm)
3.5: Dehya (5 pyro claymore) and Mika (4 cryo polearm)
3.6: Baizhu (5 dendro catalyst) and an as-of-yet unknown character
3.7: ???
3.8: Soutine (5 Hydro claymore from Fontaine)

We're also getting region updates in 3.4 and 3.6, adding more of the Desert. We're going to get the tea area in either 3.6 or 3.7 to prepare for Fontaine. We're also going to get a new weekly boss after Scaramouche in the form of the Dendro Dragon.

Everyone liked him because he was a villain and everyone was fully expecting him to be electro since he had those symbols in his design so him suddenly being an anemo uwu boy kinda spoils the fun. If the leaks about Alhaitham coming right after him are true I wonder how many people will be skipping Wanderer to roll for him.

I really don’t care about this. I mean she’s gonna be an anemo support but you can play any character in the overworld without its dedicated support and be fine. As for spiral abyss, I’m sure Scara can beat it with other cracked male supports too. Nobody can force us to play waifu support anons.

What annoys me a bit is how damn much mihoyo is playing into this Scara wants his mom bs. We’ve seen so much of Scara where he has his own ambitions and personality but now it’s getting watered down to him wanting Ei to save him.

No. 250653

I'm sorry but this is so hilarious to me because ei literally does not give a shit about him, like he wasn't even part of her tragic backstory. But on the other hand mihoyo likes to make male characters who orbit around women (otto with kallen, zhongli with guizhong, childe with tsaritsa, itto with sara now scara with ei). They never do the opposite because it would bother waifufags, but apparently we women are supposed to enjoy scara's obsession with his "mom"

No. 250728

At least Scara's flashbacks in the 2nd archon story chapter centered more around him first finding solace within humans due to being discarded by the gods, then being "betrayed" by humanity with his friends first treating him like a freak and then dying what with being a mortal and all. I feel like people are forcing the mommy issues angle way too much maybe it's projection? kek and forgetting that he was much more focused on all the other trauma of not finding his place in the world and feeling that his emotions are making his weak.

Yeah you’re probably right. I might be overreacting to the lyrics. Definitely agree that the fandom dumbs down the characters to one trait. Like Cyno making failed jokes. Not once did he tell a joke during the main story quests. There’s so much more to him.

I really have been enjoying Sumeru and all the male characters we’ve been getting. The scrotes have definitely been seething kek. I even saw a Japanese Twitter account post this advertisement in Tokyo. It’s all male characters, clearly intended to attract female players. A huge win!

No. 250784

You're right about the fandom stripping characters down to one trait (like Alistair and cheese from the Dragon Age fandom), and I was guilty of getting swept up in that for a second. Secondhand accounts from people with spoilers just seem so dire. The male players will def push the mommy issues narrative because for some reason all of them were developmentally stunted since childhood and it always comes back to the mommy milkers. Excited to see where Wanderer's story will go and pray to archons the writing delivers but male character stories tend to always surpass so there's really nothing to worry about.

Genshin is so huge that many people just hop on for the clout and for the feeling of belonging, maybe whale for the most popular characters and just watch let's plays instead of sitting down and doing it themselves. I've had to explain the most basic things about the story and characters to people who claim to play the game yet have no clue about anything to do with the lore. It's very similar to how it is with other popular game franchises and if you have a problem with it you're accused of gatekeeping.

From what I've observed it's used as a mean of desecrating Scaramouche for his fans, like pushing the "you LIKE this loser with mommy issues??? lmao" narrative so that people would feel embarrassed about actually being invested in Scaramouche. The truth is that Ei is only a small part about why he became the way he did, he was clearly shown to be happy with the human friends he met but got betrayed by them also and is now seeking for a purpose from becoming a god. I'm guessing that the Anemo vision being granted to him represents his desire for freedom and he'll eventually be granted that, which means letting go of the bitterness and finding humanity within himself again. Like others said, there's much more to his story than just "haha mommy issues".

Ei is undeniably the worst, most selfish character in the game and people ignore it way too often. She's so fucking useless she did basically nothing but take her dead, more renowned sister's place, start committing genocide and creating living, sentient beings while either killing them or discarding them out in the wild. But she has le booba sword so all is forgiven I guess?

Preach. I'll never not hate Ei, there's literally no way to make her a strong or worthy character. How the hell are you the strongest archon but you make a puppet almost stronger than you with no off switch? How do you kill your own people, but claim it's for the best? WHY ARE INAZUMANS FALLING OVER THEMSELVES FOR HER?? I'D WANT HER BURNED AS THE WITCH SHE IS. The least they could've done was paint her as the waste of space she is instead of this uwu I don't know how to socialize and so much has changed outside of my bubble uwu they tacked on brush off the genocide. I'm sorry, I just really can't get over this uwufication.

He wont be in scaras banner sadly, scara will have another new 4 star character debut in his banner. But that will be a female anemo character, we will probably see her and scaras new design on monday.

Thats such a cool poster! I'm surprised that the only tall 5 star character they included is zhongli. Are shorter male characters more popular in japan? Also funny how they included heizou a 4 star.

Inazuma was such a shit fest. Like seriously they made Ei a dictator who gives no shit about her people, committing genocide while also making her just dumb af. And its so hilarious how easily traveler is trusting towards her, its not as much that traveler forgives her because in the story it doesnt seem that traveler even disliked or disagreed with her actions in the first place? Also just really hate her design, she looks nothing like a shogun. I remember when her design was leaked people were coping that she was not the archon or that it was not her final design, but because of the boob sword people dont mind that she looks boring af

I could write a whole ass essay about how people tripping over themselves trying to make Ei into some well-meaning hero mommy waifu who's just a bit autistic but it's okay it's just quirky make me want to go apeshit and throw tableware around screeching until my throat is sore. It's always like
>She's a goddess, she doesn't understand mortal problems like idk just wanting to not be killed
>She created the vision hunt decree to protect her people from harm! Uhh what do you mean it was revealed that she was fully aware of fatui manipulating them and didn't care? S-she just didn't understand because she's a silly bean like that uwu
>She's such a silly bean that she created sentient puppets practically indistinguishable from human beings killing them off in cold blood until she came across one that was strong enough to rival her, then left her in charge with no supervision or even an off button and fucked off to "meditate" because boo hoo I'm so sad. Don't you feel sorry for this poor girl?
Most of the time I'm not sure if they're in her defense or not because they make her look like the most selfish dictator in the world even with their apologist bullshit. Inazuman people don't "love and respect" her, they fucking FEAR her.

What Yae should've done was to contact Zhongli to slam her to the bottom of the ocean instead of her stupid talking-to with all the work done by a random foreigner who didn't even want to be involved in all of this. After all of this her story quest was like a slap in the face, why am I going on a date reading light novels with this bitch who was just a moment ago committing countless atrocities? I hate Mihoyo so much for the shit writing regarding Ei, even Childe being the morally black maniac had enough charisma to be fun and the story never portrayed him as nothing more than that, but with Ei you got Paimon cheerfully calling out to her and the entire narrative forcing you to lick her ass just to mock you. Fuck Ei and fuck her ugly ass nonsensical trapezius holes.

No. 250914

I'm LIVING for the Ei hate in this thread right now. The fact that it took until her SECOND story quest to finally have her sort of admit she was wrong and even then she gets off way too easy. Out of all the archons introduced so far, she's the worst. The others are at least shown to care about their nation & people. I hate that Eifags on genshintwt pretty much dismiss every legitimate Ei critique as woman hate.

No. 250916

>I hate that Eifags on genshintwt pretty much dismiss every legitimate Ei critique as woman hate.
Right? I even like Nahida just fine, even though she's a loli she's still doing all she can to help her people including sacrificing herself as Rukkhadevata. Venti gets shit for "abandoning" his region even though he's still around but undercover and sprung to action remedying the situation with Dvalin. Ei inherited the nation from her sister and immediately left it in the hands of a machine due to her autistic hyperfixation on preserving "eternity" which pretty much translates to "doing fucking nothing" as she couldn't give a shit about Fatui wrecking havoc in Inazuma and leading the entire nation to a civil war destroying that "eternal reign" she had. I'm not even against the idea of an archon trying to cheat erosion with Ei's means but the story treating her like a cuddly friend and leading her fans to refuse to accept that she's a fucking buffoon is what bothers me the most. She should've been a villain and owned up to the horrible things she did but instead her worst enabler made us take her out for a date.

I'm so glad that my Ei hate even a year later wasn't beating a dead horse. After more reflection of my hate for her and the other nonas' good points, I've decided to forgive Childe for his war crimes. Yeah, he tried to destroy Liyue harbor but he didn't have a responsibility to the people like Ei does to hers. He's homicidal and messed up for good reason and that's the character we get. The traveler had to meet the people whose visions were taken and those affected by the loss of friends and family because of this shit. Borders are closed but fatui are allowed in to poison the place even more?
But hey, the ara ara~ fox maiden got us to take the neet on a date and we even recommended current light novels to her. Give her something to do when she goes back into her bubble.

Not just cyno x nilou shippers, although they definetly like to butt in about how their ship is definetly "superior" and "pure", but mostly solo cyno fans. They usually ship him with alhaitham and keep making excuses about how cynonari is a racist heteronormative ship and it all comes from their hatred of tighnari

No. 250978

Along with the fact that Childe didn't have a reason to care about the citizens of Liyue nor did he have the duties and responsibility of a celestial being, the other key difference between his and Ei's portrayals is that the story doesn't force you into forgiving him. The traveler and Paimon are constantly dubious about his intentions and have trouble trusting him, during the labyrinth event they clearly were on their toes around him. With Ei the traveler and Paimon just supposedly forgot about the hell she put them and the people of Inazuma through because funny misunderstood lonely hikki girl doesn't understand modern world. It's outright cruel to snap your fingers and force everyone into forgiving Ei because "It wasn't her who did those things, it was Raiden Shogun!" despite it being made explicitly clear that the puppet was programmed to act exactly as she wished.

I really dislike how nonchalant she is in her story quest. Like there are people worrying about the sudden change of shogun's demeanor, who never previously cassually walked around in the streets around them. And then there is this supposedly eternity loving motherfucker who doesnt give a single fuck about it. The entire idea of her quest contradicts her philosophy. Seriously at that vendor when she tried dango milk, the shop owner was more dismissive and sceptical of his untraditional food than she was. This is borderline ridiculous. At childe quest (even though he is one of the most one dimensional characters out there) you could see how he struggles with being both a fatooey and a family man to an extent that he needs to lie about everything to be able to be both things at the same time, meanwhile ei is shown to be uncontradictionally moe and dictator-ish simultaneously. It is really common for female characters to be characterized as powerful and determined, but not being written that way (like asari from mass effect, who are supposedly the most powerful and influential race in the galaxy, end up having no active presence in the story whatsoever).
Ps: I suppose I am not the only one who hates her voice as "ei"? So waifubait-y it hurts.

But wasn’t Ei’s reaction to the dango milk an example of how she had a change of heart about eternity? She started seeing how everything staying the same wasn’t a good thing. I agree it was stupid but I do think it was the writers’ choice to emphasize how she liked the innovative dango milk. Idk honestly I couldn’t care less. The Inazuma story sucked balls and so did it’s characters.

This. Even with Ei the Tenryou Comission had more authority and power over Inazuma than she did, they had a menacing plan to manipulate and weaponize their country and trick the shogun. In the end Ei was just a dunce whose philosophy of "eternity" was just as Yae said, locking herself in a room and throwing a tantrum. Really hoping that the hydro archon won't be another autistic wreck with instead of hyperfixation on eternity it will be on muh justice.

Characters like Scara are unappealing to moids because he’s the “bad boy that girls love” which makes “nice guy” scrotes seethe.

Your opinion on which ship is worse or better or if the ship is even good is insignificant, the point is that YaeMiko is on brand for all the k-pop sasaengs who think they're the best lesbian couple ever simply because they look pretty while genuine lesbians who are interested in F/F ships prefer beigguang.

How do we feel about genshin making supporting characters/4 stars designed for one specific character. Because according to a leak Faruzan is made to support Scaramouche, while Gorou was for Itto.

personally for genshin ships i like ei x lumine because i'm a sucker for villains hero ships.

No. 252058

Characters like Sara and Gorou do work with other characters of their element too though, they just work the best with a certain one like Sara with Raiden and Gorou with Itto. Either way I do wish they weren't so locked to those certain characters and Faruzan looks so fucking ugly and annoying I wouldn't use her if she gave Scara a +500% burst damage boost or removed their resistance to anemo altogether.

Yeah I don't get it either. I rolled for a lot of characters that theorycrafters deemed garbage (i.e. all male characters kek) because I just like using them and they fit my playstyle the best. Abyss and domains can be cleared with a free to play party and there really isn't an accepted standard to measure a character's efficiency as they're all largely conditional and based on theories alone. I like Kokomi because her healing capabilities and hydro application are superb while the community constantly calls her dogshit due to having minimal damage output.

No. 252059

They've been doing this for a while, and it sucks because it makes these characters extremely one note to play. Like Sara is shackled to Ei like an ankle monitor, and even then Ei can function perfectly fine without Sara's assistance.

Gorou is in the same camp, albeit it's a little more understandable there since most Geo characters are only used with other Geo characters anyways, and there's so few to choose from.

I'm having trouble figuring out what the hell to do with Candace. All her teams are so mediocre, that they're more a chore than fun to build up.

I'd honestly rather they just release more universally good 4* supports like Xiangling or Sucrose or some shit.

Yuri written by women exists, nowadays there are a ton of popular and well written ones that are easily accessible. I promise you that lesbians who are in desperate need of a love story don't need to turn to yaoi lol.

No. 252139

I don't know what they were expecting, she's a hella niche 5*. Strong or not flexible units are always going to be better received than super niche ones. Pulling Nilou also means you're forced into pulling for Kusanali right after, she's not a reasonable investment for most of the playerbase and people realized it.

Also, as cute as her design is her personality is the blandest yet.

No. 252157

Not surprised at all. I like her design fine but she's bland as fuck as a character and she requires a strong dendro application team. I don't know what they were thinking releasing Nilou before Nahida instead of Dehya because she simply doesn't work in the current bloom team options (i.e. Collei and Traveler) and you could just use Xingqiu or Kokomi instead.

No. 252171

I don't know if they were really expecting her to do much to begin with. Seems like she was almost designed to be easily skippable to give some breathing room for folks to saving for Nahida and Scaramouche. As much as I like Albedo (have him at C2), he's hardly a must pull for most players either.

Hopefully Kaveh or Al Haitham work with Cyno. I do not give a single fuck about the spiral abyss but Cyno is awful to play even in the overworld/with bosses because of his lack of a good dendro support.

No. 252379

Cyno works really well when co-opping and another player keeps applying dendro and hydro but as a single player he desperately needs an off-field support, his burst last for a long time but without elemental reactions it's really hard to keep dealing consistent damage. He's not a bad unit by any means but he's just lacking a good support.

Can I just share a cute wholesome moment even if it’s kinda blogposty? I babysat a 5-year old and he asked if I had any games. I said no but he saw the genshin app icon on my iPad and wanted to play. We ended up playing for two hours in Mondstadt and he was having so much fun. (I made him a child friendly team without the fan-servicey characters and he doesn’t speak English either so it was very age appropriate, I wouldn’t let a 5-year old touch the game otherwise). He loved playing Cyno and got so excited when he beat up some slimes. It really made me realize how fun genshin is when you’re a complete clueless beginner and just run around picking up berries in Mondstadt. A nice break from the scrotey anti-husbando wars on twitter and ship sperging here on lc. It’s such a simple and childish game when you play it with a kid. He said "this is a very calm game" which I thought was such a refreshing take, compared to what the metafags are painting it to be.

No. 252887

That's so sweet and he's absolutely precious, nona. I guess the one true key to being able to enjoy the game for what it is is to avoid metafags and basically fandom. Collecting wolfhooks was so calming for me too.

This is why metafags can fuck right off. I have a lot of fun in Genshin just enjoying the game and taking my time doing things, trying out new strategies, actually reading and internalizing the dialogue during world quests, just having fun with it. I know people who are textbook metaslaves, they need to 100% everything right away like it was a fucking contest and then spend the rest of their time minmaxing abyss damage and doomposting about the game being bad and new characters not being meta enough i.e. taking 2 seconds more to clear abyss. They're draining the fun out of the game and would probably be happier playing some PVP hell where the entire purpose is to shit on other players and the game since that's what they love doing the most.

No. 252906

I’m glad you didn’t find my blogpost cringey, he really is so precious, the sweetest and kindest child I’ve ever met. He really brought back the fun in the game for me. It’s a fun game to just immerse yourself in exploration wise. It doesn’t have to be more than that.

Yeah definitely. Metafags have polluted all the social media platforms so it unfortunately implicitly affected my view of the game.

Thank god. I know someone who had a legit mental breakdown and a depressive episode because the character they rolled (and liked) couldn't finish spiral abyss fast enough. It's ridiculous, that's not how you're supposed to play the game! For myself as an old Zelda fan Genshin has been an amazing experience having similar explorative elements added to it. I can just explore the map for hours on end trying to figure out puzzles because there's no rush. After finishing the current story I'll have to wait for new chapters anyway.

I'm pretty sure that "ship anxiety" person is the reoccurring weird oneeshota schizo who thinks Mihoyo pandering to oneeshota fetishists and it's sending her over the edge. Scroll upthread to see her having a breakdown over Kazuha and Beidou being featured in a Cadillac ad in China.

Also don't know why you have a forced gripe with lesbians since even during the last infight it was some anti-lesbian anon going insane over someone calling beigguang a more mature ship than eimiko and refusing to stop sperging. Overall the most of the shitting up here is undeniably done by the scrote(s) throwing fits over their supreme waifus being disliked and someone being triggered over fujo ships or valid criticism of badly written female characters to the point they complain about them all over the site while accusing them of infighting kek. I can even bet that someone probably thinks all the Ei hate upthread is also "fujos forcing shipping discourse and infighting" even though it's universally recognized by every type of player how flawed of a character she really is and how much was sacrificed just to make her an uwu waifu.

They took all the most common requests like buffing old characters, slightly increasing the resin cap, adding new things to do outside the extended daily commissions they call events/shit story/occasional shit new area, etc. and said "fuck off, have a bad card game no one wanted." That's going to end up abandoned after people milk it for rewards just like fishing did. Would it kill them to at least add a story skip button?

Don't care about abyss but I do think it's weird they don't plan on making any content like it again. The """anxiety""" excuse sounds like bs. I'm glad I quit buying welkin and farming in this game long ago, but I really wonder why metafags still bother to after hearing this.


No. 253290

There is no reason to increase the resin cap when it's only used for farming. They need some way to get people to pay money.
And if you really hate the story and everything so much why do you keep playing.

And she's just cute like cute, I love the little jumping on button dance attack.

I actually cried during that scene, I never thought Genshin would be able to make me so emotional but it made me feel so bad for him. Overall I enjoyed every moment of the Sumeru story, Inazuma doesn't even compare.

Yeah I’m surprised that she got 0 doomposting by metafags. All she does is good dendro application. Barely any personal damage, and a weird burst that feels useless. All she does is buff dendro reaction teaks and applies dendro, I feel like so many future dendro characters could do the same (while not being a loli which is better). She’s definitely useless to any player who don’t depend on dendro reactions and even for dendro reaction teams I bet Kaveh or Alhaitham could in some ways achieve a good dendro application too in the future.

Nonas, I need to know your opinions because I'm somewhat puzzled.

I really liked Scaramouche before and wanted to get him but his redesign killed my +1 year hype for him. I said I'll still get because, he's still Scaramouche but seeing his gameplay he kind of sucks. I'm not a metafag or anything but just want the character to be playable enough to use him with regular mission not just throw him in the teapot. I've heard in the following updates both Baizu and Alhaithem are coming and being the husbandofag that I am I'll definitely get them lol. Anyway what I'm trying to know is that are there any nonas who are having these conflicted feelings about scara and consider skipping him for others? Are you guys disappointed like I am or did have big expectations?
I was thinking of wishing 'till I reach the 50/50,if I won then good but if I lose then also good for Alhaithem

Tell me your future wishing plans please I feel lost after this

No. 253785

I've been waiting for Scaramouche since the unreconciled stars event and while the anemo revamp dented my hype a bit seeing his kit in action reignited it because the floating mechanic seems to be a handy overworld skill. As for Baizhu and Alhaitham, I'll be pulling both because I can afford it. If I didn't have the choice, I'd skip Baizhu, get Scara and use what's left over for Alhaitham. But it all really depends on your own needs and preferences, maybe just wait until there's more information about Alhaitham's and Baizhu's kits and try Scaramouche out during his banner's trial?

>but seeing his gameplay he kind of sucks
Really, i never cared much about Scaramouche. I mean i still planned to get him because im a husbando collector but he was never my number one husbando. Seeing his gameplay however, he looks so cool. I was nervous since there are already so many male anemo characters and i was afraid his kit would look to much like the others. But it looks really unique. You will def be able to use him in regular missions. Alhaitham will be in 3.4, thankfully Scara is in first half so you have some time to save for him. Baizhu will be in 3.6 so loads of time for him. My advice would be to just play the trial for Scara when he arrives and then decide if you like him enough. You can always get him on rerun

No. 253799

I'm planning to get scara on his rerun, alhaitham is my main priority now

No. 253814

It… depends I guess? I think I agree with you that his gameplay seems kind of meh. Catalysts are actually my favorite but his normal and charged attack animations are a little boring (trading effects for increased attack speed?). However, he still seems playable enough and you shouldn't have any issues clearing in-game content with him (or with any of the other characters for that matter).

After reading some 3.3 leaks… I kind of hate the direction they're going with his story. However, it looks like he retains his personality which was his strongest selling point to me. So, I want to see how it all works out before pulling.

I feel you anon. I’m fine with his kit. I tried to think objectively, wouldn’t an electro kit be more likely to be shit anyways? So I’ve come to terms with the anemo kit, just a bit disappointed over it not being so flashy with the animation. The floating thing could be fun if they don’t make it too gimmicky.

What disappointed me the most was the color choice of his outfit, they could have done a bit more variation then just… blue. But in the end he’s still Scara, most likely the last truly insane and bratty male character we’re getting. So I’m prioritizing him with my guaranteed pull. My remaining primos will be spent on Ayato and Alhaitham.

No. 253829

Speaking of design. I like how his buff arrows are represented in the splash art but they still looks odd and out-of-place. So far, we've only seen the arrow infused with hydro from gameplay leaks and I really dislike how it looks. It doesn't seem like all four can light up at once so it always feels rather incomplete too?

I wish they could've done multi-colored rings behind him or multi-colored rings on his wrists or something to represent the different buffs instead.

No. 253840

Not rolling for Alhaitham, but Baizhu was one Sumeru I wanted. Scaramouche is still a roll to guaranteed for me due to liking him a lot, and gameplay wise he's not the worst since I didn't get Heizou and I never really cared for Sucrose either on field or off field which are his closest comparisons. I think he's actually better gameplay wise as long as he gets stagger resistance and it's really just a matter of him being a flashier cooler version of those 4*s as an anemo driver. Somewhat of a shame since I wouldn't mind him being a support, but I can see him being another Tartaglia where he ages surprisingly well just with more team options other than his dedicated buffers like Faruzan. I have harbinger bias though.

No. 253854

Bootleg Miku doesn't look that good as a dedicated buffer. Unless you're trying to see how high your Xiao's damage can get and nothing else, she has no advantage over any other anemo support even for non-Xiao anemo DPS. Then for Xiao there are more practical options. She's less of a Gorou and more of a Sara; forgettable, poorly designed filler that needs c6 to fulfill her niche role, a role she is not even the best at. I don't understand who she's supposed to appeal to.

No. 253857

vocaloid fans who will immediately try to make videos of her dancing to hatsune miku songs and thus generate free advertising?

No. 253863

I would bet that she's one of those characters that had a generic design laying around to be implemented when they needed a new niche 4-star to fill a void. At least Layla can be used for her budget disco ball but Faruzan is just Sara repeated all over again except with way less plot relevance and (according to Cyno's voice line) the worst kind of generic nice girl personality. I really don't care for how much they've been shilling 4stars as just extras cuffed to certain 5-stars instead of standalone units. As for who she's designed to appeal to, probably for cosplayers and for promotional material.

No. 253865

Still think niche supports are generally good. It gives you the option of running the 5* character hypercarry style and be a bit sweaty chasing numbers or if you don't want to slot in other subdps. Agree to disagree, but I can see why you would opt to drop them since I try not to run buffers.

No. 253871

I think they're good when they're good, like Gorou. But Sara and bootleg Miku are bad at their jobs on top of being weak visually and story wise. The second part annoys me the most, they put forth no effort to make Biku appealing to the demographic that the characters she's supposed to be supporting are the most popular with, leaving her half-baked no matter how you look at her. She doesn't even appear to know let alone have anything to do with Scaramouche unlike Gorou with Itto or Sara with Raiden.

I feel that geo is the most neglected element as it can't interact with any element, why is it so cursed lol. Seeing the data mine and future characters there doesn't seem to be any new geo characters and I'm starting to believe they will definitely neglect it and keep throwing Albedo (people mostly got him for him and not meta) and Itto (although awesome dps its thrown because no element mumbo jumbo) reruns as the geo part of genshin impact but no love or attention. I hope there will be a way for geo to be buffed either by new characters or general buff like electro.

I have all geos and it's the most Unga bunga element ever, I'll just cope here and wish for more real geo attention from hoyo

Also for husbandos nonas, good luck sisters and hopefully you get all the ones you want.
I could be just jaded but probably this is your only chance for them until a long while, minus specific dps' they won't rerun in a long time, a year maybe?

it's fine. I don't understand the meta autists who cry about how bad geo is when the team of albedo, itto, gorou, zhongli is not only one of the strongest but most comfortable in the game. do you just want something to call bad? call ningguang bad. geo is an element that hinges on the natural strength of its characters and their synergy with eachother instead of with other elements. reactions that aren't swirl and melt/vaporize are annoying to deal with.

>because everyone forgot about her half way through her original banner. I've never seen anyone, not even coomers, beg for a shenhe rerun.

Because she's literally a 4-star being sold as a 5-star who only works for Ayaka and Chongyun, and they have better and more flexible supports to use. I'm tinfoiling that Mihoyo originally meant her to be a 4-star seeing how her original design was much less intricate than what they ended up releasing but they just went ahead with putting her out and shoehorned her into the archon story no less.

I just wish that the crystallize reaction just did something more then give a very weak elemental shield. Archaic Petra could have been cool if the effect wasnt limited to the user who grabbed the shards.

>It would be kind of nice if Geo wasn't just golden physical
Agreed, which comes back to my points that this will only change if they tweaked the crystallize reaction to give more then a weak elemental shield.

Ah fuck i really want Thoma and Heizou cons. I already got Childe and i dont need any cons for him tho and i'm saving for Scara. God it will be hard to resist pulling for those cons.

I was waiting for Layla and could live with not getting any cons of her but now they throw Heizou and Thoma in there.

I wish I could build pity for Al Haitham but I bet then it won't cost me up to 80 pulls to see a 5 star.

Skipping Childe once again for other husbandos. Childe, Scara, Ayato, Alhaitham back to back, they’re really trying to get us girls whale. This is like the opposite of the inazuma banners

Xiao, Itto, Nilou

Right now I have been loving the story I just finished the Archon questline. So now I have been focused on leveling characters I wanna level up Mona, Zhongli, Thoma and Kaeya.
