Mika’s so cute, although I wish he was a 5 star I guess him being a 4 star makes him easier to get.
>>239883>bitching some post about the genshin anime due to thinking it's not an actual TV anime because is too blinded by rage caused by the thought of muh SUPER SERIOUS CHINESE GACHA GAME being criticized to fact check for two seconds
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.
>male behavior Y chromosome or not
would this happen to be the troon speaking?
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.
don't care, gay either way. why is this doodoo where the money went instead of back into the game if they wanted to do something for le players?>>239890>4 star

Scara getting a fucking huge robot form as a boss fight is gonna be epic! I’m honestly so chocked we saw Dottore’s in-game model too! I know Dottore anon didn’t like his redesign but I think he looks like the coolest tall male thus far

Im telling ya Shenhe really is there number one coomer character. It's sad because i actually like her story quests. Yae actually looks super pretty here tho so atleast they only drew Shenhe with balloon tiddies. Kazuha also looks cool and i like how Yunjin is playing the drums!

Why does the kid one look like a sticker messily slapped on the picture as an afterthought? Shenhe's boob shelf isn't the only thing defying gravity today. Fucked perspective. Does hoyoverse just commission the first moeblob artist they find on Pixiv now? Look at last years art compared to this years.

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.>>240006
Let's pray that they won't bimbofy Arlecchino and let her be a princely butch female>>240153
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.
>>240153>Why is every female
Probably cause sane players just do their own thing and don't use in game chat.
I just like playing by myself exploring and pretending I'm a hero.

Saaaaaaame anon I wanted to talk about Genshin but had no girlies to talk about it with when lolcow was down. Your experience with that girl sounds awful, as expected from a girl who actively uses discord kek. It’s sad that this is the only place with no coomer pick-mes or literal 12 year olds. Love you nonnies mwaah
Because the Moid brain prefers function over form, their brains tell them when they have a good function that brings them Resources they have more access to women, evolutionary spoken.
Function -> Resources -> access to women
Better Function -> more Resources -> more access to women
she won't be out for months at the earliest, right? she does look really good so far, i hope you're right.>>240153
hugs nona, i know what you mean. i'm lucky enough to have met some sane women who like genshin, but it seems like we're the minority. the coomer designs really draw in the worst crowd meanwhile we're begging for scraps.>>240178>as expected from a girl who actively uses discord

In all honesty that post legitimately sounds like the scrote trying to blend in again kek, every now and then he makes the weird "oh my god my nonnie
sisters same I hate female characters like SLUTna and WHOREyaka they should die in a fire!!!!" posts and it's such schizo behavior it would be funny if it wasn't so cringe and annoying. Or maybe it's just a genuinely autistic girl and I'm being paranoid.

Yes. I basically ship most of the Genshin guy ships except for Venti/Xiao because it makes no sense to me.
If it’s my post you’re talking about >>240178
then no fortunately I’m not a scrote or autistic. I just think discord attracts the weirdest social outcasts like pick mes and hyper horny scrotes. Sorry if you felt attacked by the discord comment though, I was genuinely just throwing out a joke. Didn’t mean to cause an infight.
ayrt, thank you nona. i thought it seemed really out of place to complain about girls who use discord, but i couldn't be sure i wasn't just taking it personally lol
they used that cutesy kaeya pic, maybe its just some newfag normie girl
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.>>241206
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.
Unless you get some kinda thrill from their bodies or objectify them in some way, you're not a lolicon, nonnie
. Women rarely are that degen and the ones who are can be clocked a mile away. Whoever's calling you a lolicon may be projecting.

I'm actually ashamed that I have Abystea art saved, her Venti and smooth lines are so good.
Sometimes I think if people didn't ship they'd have nothing to do in Genshin but then again what can people do kek
I guess I'm salty because I want fujos-shippers and hey-shippers on peace with one another
. I just like the cute characters!! Klee is my daughter and I want to protect her. But I’ve never gone out of my way to look for any kind of NSFW of her. She’s just a kid. But it makes me feel uncomfortable that someone is projecting that onto me. It’s like you can’t like cute characters without someone thinking you’re into it in a weird way.
his weird lisp>>241436
shipping is fun but i dont get why its so important to some people. maybe because i havent touched fanfic in years? i just enjoy the game and crying until i pull my husbandos and waifus>>241437
lmao that sounds entertaining. where do you watch them fight?
I hope it'll happen soon, nonnie
! I just love whenever he's mentioned.
>>241437>Im more invested in watching retards fight about shipping the bland characters than I am in exploring it
but this is pretty fucking pathetic kek
Yeah honestly wasting your time being invested in internet drama vs playing a game you actually enjoy isn't the big win anon thinks it is kek. >>241528
This post reminds me, there are theories about Cyno being Razor's lost relative since the upcoming Mondstadt event is going to focus on his origins, does anyone here agree?

kekk they’re kinda just recycling characters at this point that’s why I’m only rolling on characters I never got from past banners, I finally got kokomi and I can’t wait to build her so I can use her in that insane sukokomon comp
I think that Hoyo is overestimating people's attention span and interest when they made the arananana quest. People don't care about quests unless it involves their husbandos/waifus… you'd think they'd know that being a waifu gacha game and all that kek good on all nonas who enjoyed Sumeru but I sure as hell didn't.>>241478
Sorry I thought I used enter twice now it looks like the two sentences are related. >>241494
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.>>241494>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.
Ridiculous how the quality of quests never improved. Everyone complained about the NPC quests when the original lantern rite came out, little did they know it was just a little taste of what was to come lol.
I cringed so hard at the aranara being shameless korok ripoffs I couldn't find them cute. I can't explain it but feels like a weird thing to ripoff? Soulless gacha moment
File: 1664038626111.webm (491.66 KB, 316x286, Aranara Dance.webm)
After actually playing through most of the Aranara quest they really aren't that much like Koroks afterall besides the idea of forest spirits. Their role in the story is completely different, and the designs remind me more of Keroro Gunsou.
There is a little bit where the one hidden one who likes treasure chests mentions a 'Green Nara' that I'm pretty sure is a direct LoZ reference though.
Also Paimon is really growing on me, her banter with the Traveler is cute.
>>241918>Also Paimon is really growing on me, her banter with the Traveler is cute

I'm not finished with Sumeru's quests, but so far I really enjoy the zone. I love the scenery and the puzzles and how interactive it is. I can't wait for Dehya and Alhaitham to come out, I'm already obsessed with them kek
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.

Wow i actually like the design of Layla. We all know how mihoyo feels about women and pants so im just glad that we have another female character that does not wear super short skirt or shorts. Even if she does wear the super tight leggings like Jean, i think her design looks good. Now i just hope her model also looks nice.>>242501

You like armpits nannies?
File: 1664189714493.jpg (1.21 MB, 1440x1440, GhKjlKz.jpg)
Idk if this is OT but genshin has the most bizarre fandom drama. A big fan account pisses people off by drawing characters in with russian symbols. The artist is russian and 100% serious about it.
I don't mind the sleeveless part because it kinda looks stylish.
I wish we got a free dendro 4star like we did for kaeya, Lisa, Barbara etc.
Yeah there's literally no non-loli female design without armpits exposed except Raiden, Ayaka, Hu Tao and Yun Jin because it's an Asian fetish. I've stopped expecting anything from the female characters at this point tbh, they're all bodysuit with thighs and cleavage out and the personality of a light novel girlfriend.>>242516
That's abbystea and she's been brought up multiple times upthread for being a schizo drama baiter. Ctrl+f, anon.
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.
they're both aoe dps that need to stay on field for a very long time, but cyno's has a lot of disadvantages over xiao like>smaller aoe>worse damage>worse element (resisted by more enemies and still has no advantage against shields)>reliance on reaction damage meanwhile aether's skill duration is shorter than his ult and the other two don't do anything for him, so only 5* lolicon bait nahida can set up reactions for him well>drastically fewer support options
he's event limited aoe keqing. no advantages over xiao except in event challenges that force you to bring an electro character. I'm just going to use him to run around the desert.
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. >>242635
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.
Actually true, I stand corrected. Fuck Nilou. >>242661
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.
are you saying collei was tomboyish in the manga? i'll have to finally read it>>242668
shit taste kek. at least layla is theorized to be a 4 star, i was shocked. her design seems too busy to be a 4 star imo.
ayaka is one of the worst to me, never understood her hype.>>242669>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.
File: 1664258026957.jpg (62.89 KB, 897x662, just negative.jpg)
Fucking THANK YOU. Idk why some players say electro is the worst element. I can't think of any viable reason, and I also don't know why there are so many Cyno doomers. We have no crumbs whatsoever except for some kit stuff which, as a nonnie
mentioned, means nothing
. Not only do we have proof in Kazuha, artifacts and kits can be modded post release and it all truly depends on how you play anyway.
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>inb4 kazuha for the nth time
Yes kazuha, kazuha who is the devs self-insert and the character who is shilled in every single collab. He along with ayaka is by far the most promoted inazuma character
File: 1664262012531.jpg (20.86 KB, 510x510, yys_20220919190031.jpg)
did I say he'd be useless? all I said was he's a xiao downgrade (true) without the archon of pedobait and you started mouthbreathing like crazy>>242796
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 don't necessarily agree that the husbandos have been too weak, but cyno falls behind the other male 5 stars post zhongli debacle, including standard banner tighnari, and the reason why he's like that is deliberate and disturbing.
>xiao is easier to use
His jumping gimmick is finicky and feels like an autistic gameplay design choice.
>doesn't rely on any one character or element which makes his teams uber flexible
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.
I don't even hate Xiao. I love him as a character, but the way you've put him on a pedestal as if he's peak male 5* dps and only doompost about an UNRELEASED character is pretty fucking retarded nonnie
>>242825>you've put him on a pedestal as if he's peak male 5* dps
can't tell if you're being willfully obtuse or if your reading comprehension is really that bad. either way, you argue like a tumblroid circa 2015…
male keqing will always be a mid aoe dps with glaring issues mihoyo only plans to fix via the release of a separate 5 star unit. complain about mihoyo's shady business practices instead of sperging at anyone else who dares to. hope you weren't laughing when shenhe and yae ended up being glued to other 5 star waifus.

Definitely read the manga!! Collei was so cool, not at all how she is in the game now
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.
Nilou and Cyno wanters ignore the doom posting, just pull the characters you like ignore metafags

Either way I’m pulling for Cyno. I know he won’t have a good support for 6-8 months if I don’t pull for a loli, but it is what it is

Really sorry to hear that your last braincell is struggling make a better clapback than 'retarded tumblerina'. And where did I ever defend HYV for their shitty behavior? I wonder which one of us is lacking the reading comprehension here.
Anyway, I'm not even a huge Cyno defender. I'm always interested in new characters especially if they look cool, have good lore, or have nice animations. Not gonna whine on a gossip site about how the new 5* everyone's legit excited for might outclass muh anEMO dps kek

Also for nonas who want Hoyo to give nice booty to males, remember that they toned down all of that due to the no feminine boys bs. Also, they don't seem to intend to give any child model to a male character. gee I wonder why

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.
The boys are okay with their frumpy pants, I don't mind them, most of them are showing their cute bellies, hips or backs, but Cyno should have a thick butt because he's supposed to be sexy with his Kim K cutout bike shorts.
I hate that stupid meme, and I hate that Gorou has been memed into being a femboy. I regret rolling extra to get him C4 he doesn't fit my playstyle at all.>>243197
Zhongli doesn't have a 'big' butt though. It's just well defined by the texture/shadow.
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.>>243202
Samee, it's like characters can't be cute anymore.>>243212
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.
I wish I could support this shizo theory with evidence kek
don't you think thats asking a little too much of the anon who already threw a tard rage for 3 days straight sperging at anons disagreeing with her? between farming her 30 alt accounts for cyno's beetles and defending his hank hill ass, she must be real stressed out right now.>>243212
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.
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.>>243212
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
Well, I'm a Neet so…
It's really not any more time consuming then other games though. And I feel it's less grindy than other gatcha games.
The Big quests only take a few hours maybe, less if you read faster. And you can look at the wiki to see where the world quests are instead of blindly exploring the map if you don't have that time.
Baizhu could end up being a good support for him, we don't know yet. They know pure healers are shit, there's no way Baizhu's going to only heal.>>243207
Itto is amazing and fun to play. Ayato's pretty fun and brainless too, just hold down mouse and watch him kill things.
I got Cyno on the first pull looks like there was no need for me to save up all those gems. Here's my link for the web event.

Tbh I'm still doing my internships so I have plenty of time to play and even take part in the streaming event, I don't do much throughout the day because I have a maid who cooks and cleans, so it's not like I have any chores to do as well.
Once you have your first level 90 character it takes just a few minutes to finish the daily quests, if that level 90 character is Venti that's a plus because he's really useful.

the update JUST came out do you really have to spoil it? Couldn’t you wait a few days?
Eh not really captivated by these animations>>243373>Suits Keqing better once again.
It says >enemies who get marked on her skill take continuous single target dendro damage at 1.9 second intervals for 20 seconds. >passive gives em based on the character with the highest em in the party when burst is active (limited to 200 em)>when pyro, electro, and hydro characters are in the party, burst effects the damage, trigger frequency, and duration respectively
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.
>>243212>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. >>243220
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.
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.>>243393
anon, raiden is an electro dps. her buffs were never her main feature outside, i dont know, eula teams?
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
But in the end I feel it's all for nothing until he reaches lvl80+ with talents lvl6+
>>243398>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.
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.
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. >>243401
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.
id 100% rather him be a support with some sub dps like kazuha, hed be useful in a wider variety of teams. plus we already have
a male dendro dps in tighnari, a damn good dps at that.

they aren't the ones shipping my husbandos with women, which is arguably worse than simply insulting my husbandos. i'm not a nlog or a pick me, but i don't think i'm the only one who gravitated towards moid communities for that reason
unfortunately genshin has a very large female fanbase so i'm subjected to shipperfags everyday

I was NOT ready for his (JP) voice, nonnas I think I'm obsessed now.
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.>>243392
If it takes 2 more years to powercreep Bennett that's pretty damn good for gacha standards. I can't see the pyro God of War being anything but a main dps but hey, maybe they would gimp her and make her a support.

Bless these bunch of events because now I feel like I will be able to get Scaramouche and whichever other husbando that gets released soon. Since I got Cyno and Venti I can just keep on saving my primogems. I hope the next one is some boring waifu rerun so I can save even more primogems and maybe get guaranteed husbandos.

I just finished the newest story quest. It’s certainly better than endless eight nightmare mode. The story is far better than the mess that is Inazuma. Also I love how snarky Alheitham is. My biggest complaint is Candace’s voice actress recording on a shitty mic.
Lol I'm the same, really cute designs are definitely priority number 1 compared to husbandos, sorry Childe..>>243660
League has some of the cutest skins and characters too it's a pity people are so mean in games haha
good luck to you two nonnitas!!!
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? >>243702
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.
Also that's it? I was somehow expecting more out of the quest, I felt it ended a bit abruptly/anti-climactic.

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.
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.
Upset that I fucked myself so badly, but hey– maybe I'll keep getting lucky when I'm rolling for the chars I actually want!
>>244070>she seemed to be rebellious in her thinking that the time of adepti is over
Yeah and then it turned out she's actually a secret fangirl of Rex Lapis and collects literal merch of him, what a rebel. She's everything I hate about the twintails tsundere trope and
the overworked waifu stereotype and I can't stand how Mihoyo keeps shilling her bland ass every fucking chance they get. I'm glad she's so underwhelming as an unit so at least I don't have metafag redditoids shilling her up everyone's asses.
These are valid
criticisms, though? neither of those anons, but I'm still salty the new year event was us and other pcs trying to get her to take a break. I think she really could've been cool with the "Fuck the gods—humans make their own destiny." vibe I was getting when she was first introduced. You're using the word 'bait' and I don't think you know what it means lol
I think the fact that the two dudes look hot af might be the reason. Otherwise I barely noticed anything like due to Tirzard whining all the time ugh
I don't know why side quest's characters are alot more likeable than the Archon quests in my opinion

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 still seethe about the sheer number of Xinyan constellations that I got while rolling for Raiden.yes, i know this is probably bad practice, and i promise to never step foot in a casino.
It's what happened to me I can't believe my shit luck
Rolled 10 wishes twice to get Candance instead got 2 cynos and her. I wish I lost the 50/50 to get jean, almost 2 years and no her

It was definitely easier than the last few patches that had annoying energy drain, forced element checks, or annoying bosses with time wasting invulnerability periods. 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.
On that note, bug collecting is hell and I only managed to get Cyno to level 80. I'm going to have to wait a few days to get him to 90 since everyone I know also went for Cyno and is suffering bug hell.
You're absolutely delusional if you think there's only one anon who dislikes Keqing. >>244102
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. >>244152
"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.

Ventifags can't keep getting away with it
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.

Do you anons know where I can get more info about scara’s friends? I feel like that part wasn’t really elaborated
File: 1664739330482.png (1.72 MB, 1289x1581, 92633630_p0.png)
I feel like such a fake fan for finally starting Razor's event even though he's my favorite character and my main loyalty to this game. It's been 2 years and we finally get some backstory he's deserved! I just started and I'm really liking Lisa. She's so patient and caring and shows that she thinks about what's best for this feral child's development. She understands that his position is more precarious than any other child's and fuck that ara ara mommy stuff, I wanna hang out in the library and drink tea.
The only thing that ruined my mood was Paimon. I was just starting to like her when she said "It's just a junk! Did Varka get the boxes mixed up?" I could smack her out of the air and stump her into the ground. Does she need to be in every event? How the hell does the mascot get more lines than the mc? Next survey I need to ask for a function that disables Paimon's voice in the audio settings.
Cyno's a badass "edgy" no-nonsense character. Dudes like that.>>244297
The Husk of Opulent Dreams set is about Scaramouche and his backstory.
Did you play the Itadori event? I don't remember exactly what happened, but I'm certain that it talked about his past quite a lot.>>244304
The English translation team just (once again) fucked up and made Paimon come across like more of a cunt than she really is. She actually says something like "These are all random things. I thought there would be a letter." or something like that. There's a lot of threads about it on Twitter right now if you want to look more into it.
Have you considered playing in Korean or Chinese? I've noticed that most people that hate Paimon play with the JP or EN dub. I play with the CN dub the vast majority of the time and Paimon actually sounds very adorable and calm.
Very unpopular opinion but I think a lot of the Japanese voices suck major ass.
Right? I think the only CN voice that isn't a great fit is Albedo, but that's it. The tall females ara ara voices in Japanese make me so uncomfortable.>Aether and Tighnari having gross shota voices.
And Tighnari has such a normal ikemen voice in Chinese as well. He literally sounds like a woman in the JP dub, I have no idea what they were thinking.
Tigs JP voice is a woman.
I play in JP because I understand it, I hate amateur English VA's and can't stand the sound of Chinese and Korean.

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

I think CN is worth it just for Paimon and the female characters. It's nice to run around with the girls and not feel like you are participating in an oneesan or loli fetish just because of the way their voices sound.
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.
he does look and act like a child, tard. 12-14, same as xingqiu and his voice reflects it in every language but japanese. it isn't anymore tumblr-y to say it about him than it is to say it about kusanali. >>244493>the Adventure Guild wouldn't accept literal children to be killed during quests

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

are you just infighting for the sake of it? this discussion is about why the jap dub's old man voice is out of place vs the other dubs consistent shota voice
The male kid model is
what Bennett uses lmao
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. >>244656
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.
Haven't gotten a chance to use it yet. It looks like it would get good on Xiao, but there are probably better spears 4/5

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.
What? I almost sure Xiao, Albedo and Cyno and Tighnari are a bit taller than the rest?
Or maybe because I see them as older lol

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.

I wish Mihoyo wasn’t so vague about it. Give us their canon ages and this won’t be a fandom fight anymore. They must be reluctant because of the amount of porn made.
>>245042>definitely feel like manlets to me, despite being the same size as the others.
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. >inb4 noooo nonnie you cant like this short fictional male characters because i headcanon him as a 11 year old!!!
idc, also notice how this argument never happens to the female characters like ganyu and mona who gets sexualised a lot more? Mh i wonder why that is
>All this autism about the characters' canonical ages
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. >>245057>idc, also notice how this argument never happens to the female characters like ganyu and mona who gets sexualised a lot more? Mh i wonder why that is
this, truly perplexing isn't it
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.
It was nice to see event spoilers Razor's parents even if they're just npc models, that was lazy as fuck, now I wonder if klee's mother will also be an npc model
Well Ganyu is ~100 years old or something being an adepti right?>>245060
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. Probably a self-insert thing for the younger players. I don't drink anyway so I don't care. Also not sure if the traveler is supposed to be really old and in a coma or something for a while, or if time travel was involved.

>>245057>people say that the short male characters are underage so they can get mad at you for shipping them! >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.

He is literally described as a young man in the in game description. If you see him a child thats fine by me idc but you just seem to assume a lot of stuff for no reason kek. Idc who you ship him with and i don't need your permission for that stuff either.
Yes what about it?

I read once that they're around 1.70 to 1.85 being Zhongli the tallest and I like it, I think Itto would be ridiculously huge though, like 1.90, since he's an oni and all that stuff.
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.
File: 1665018493801.png (26.56 KB, 581x894, datamined heights.png)
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.
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.>>245216
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.
>>245219>"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.

Kek, Albedo is ridiculously short but he's really cute.
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.)
Don't do it, you will ruin everything, I tried to get the raccoon girl once and I ended up getting stuck with Yoimiya, which ruined my pity.
Just be patient, think about it, you will get scaramouche and he will look kind of cute.
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.
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>>245554
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
I posted here because I needed some type of closure due to how tempting these banners get, and you kind nonas slapped some sense into me, early wishing but good luck all of your wanted charas!

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%?)>>245753
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.

THEY PAID HER CAN'T YOU READ
the bitch got PAID for venlisa fanart
Just shut the fuck up with your annoying schizoposting, we've heard this same shit from you too many times.
Also before newfags here bite the bait, at some point Mihoyo was paying everyone
in-game currency for drawing Genshin fanart for taking part in contests or just creating hype material etc, Abbystea's most popular pieces were her solo Ventis and that's why a lot of people followed her without really giving a shit about her Venlisa obsession.
All they care about is money, I don't know how you anons did not realise that yet lol. The only based thing these devs did was called out people who cared way too much about canceling others long time ago.
It's the same devs who had an art contest that was won by a person who traced the said artwork, they did not bother crediting any artists and paid in in-game currency. Most of their eng VAs spent their salary on these gems too.
At least Dottore's uncontested insanity is interesting in all its macabre glory and keeps me at the edge of my seat, for Signora it's just >My Nigel died in a war ree time to turn into a witch>Now I'm a harbinger but in a coomer outfit doing absolutely nothing but gloating about their evil plans>Oh no Traveler kicked my ass and I died unceremoniously
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. Maybe they're so desperate for a strongly written female character they just hold on to anyone who isn't an overworked waifu obsessed with their job.
>>246021>Now I'm a harbinger but in a coomer outfit doing absolutely nothing but gloating about their evil plans
Are you describing Dottore?>Maybe they're so desperate for a strongly written female character they just hold on to anyone
Yes, pretty much this. Even to a greater extent applicable to female characters' designs.
Dottore's developing delusions, masterminding a gigantic plan taking advantage of a city and reverse engineering a gnosis to artificially construct a false god
, anon, I wouldn't consider that "doing absolutely nothing". Plus he had a noticeable part in the manga's events. He's a psychopathic villain but he sure gets shit done.

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. He was "just trying to undo a curse, Celestia are the bad guys for creating the curse" and "he did the right thing in the wrong way" is what’s going to make people sympathetic.

Here’s more proof that the sickness is the curse from Khaenri’ah
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.>>246060
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. They aren't gonna make a man playable that did messed up experiments on Collei and other humans who doesn't even have any redeeming qualities.

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.
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.

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.
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?

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.
Also, there's no idiotic "oh no I forgot to do my taxes!!" Plot lines.

The archon quest? Yes. It is dialogue heavy but interesting. It ties in early genshin lore well too with gnosis, Scara, dottore etc which makes everything feel relevant. Inazuma made me just wonder, why are we here and why is this relevant to the travelers journey?

The data until 4.0 has been leaked?! Dottore and Kaveh are claymore users, Haitham is coming sooner than expected and Mika can heal.
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
3.8: 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.
We've also learned Fontaine is going to have submarine sections.

>its a waifu
they fumbled the bag so hard kek at least this way I won't be tempted to spend all my gems going for her c6. kazuha is enough support for scaramouche methinks.
I'm happy that we're finally getting him but I'm still sort of terrified about how badly they're going to fuck him up as a character once he's made playable. 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. >>250332
Oh my god, what were they thinking? We'll have 4 5-star anemo boys once Scaramouche is released, who the hell is going to want to roll a waifu support for them? They should've just given this role to Heizou.
File: 1666716843559.jpg (464.03 KB, 1784x2044, FdbTG2AVQAAf9AL.jpg)
Honestly I'm skipping him. I don't need another anemo boy, I have C6 big epeen DPS numbers on my Heizou and don't want to have to spend another six months on yet another VV set. Hit kit sounds weird too, maybe I'll go for his rerun if he actually plays okay. I really wanted an electro catalyst DPS that wasn't Lisa. Meanwhile I'm already running the dendro domain, might as well keep farming it and get Alhaitham artifacts.

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.

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!
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". >>250717
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?
Genuinely don't understand why y'all are treating this as gospel…?
There are no official lyrics available yet. Until the update's pushed out, this song itself isn't even confirmed as finalized. I've seen at least 5 different "translations" floating around the internet and not a single convincing transcript.
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.>>250768
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.>>250843>>250801
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.
>>250914>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.
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. >>250975>racist heteronormative ship

Samefagging. Archon quest spoilers about Fontaine and the hydro archon
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. >>251579

Huh. Weird hint suggesting Faruzan is from the past, or is deluded into thinking she is. It almost makes me wonder if she's going to be subject to a big character reveal My first thought was she might somehow be Viridescent, but I don't think they'd make Viridescent a 4*
I doubt it's her being literally
from the past but more like a family curse passed down for generations. She's a 4-star bow, I doubt she gets a "big character reveal". I also fucking hope she's not a Fischl type cringe larper with some time traveler motif. >>251729
Which leaks? His entire kit and materials have already been leaked. If you're talking about his redesign, I'm pretty sure Mihoyo is protecting it with their lives and we won't find out until the next story update.

Not even the fan art compares to his original outfit. Literally mourning this loss rn
His original outfit was a lot cooler, but I don't mind this. I like the colour scheme, even if it doesn't suit him. >>251751
this is just fuck ugly though
I agree, his original design was better but this isn't too bad. It could've been way worse. >>251773
She's ugly and gives me the vibes of being some sort of an emotionless Rei type machine waifu and I really hope they're not making her Scaramouche's dedicated support because I don't want to play with an ugly Honkai reject. She looks so out of place.
Kaveh JP voice, very good>>251755
i think its also the background, i will have to see his model in game to judge it properly.>>251777>I really hope they're not making her Scaramouche's dedicated suppor
Im sorry to tell you this but it seems like she woull be a dedicated support like gorou but for anemo dps characters.
Also yeah i dont like her design, its not the worst but she looks like an idol. Even tho she is supposed to be a sumeru proffesor? She doesnt give me sumeru proffesor vibes tbh
File: 1667227080260.png (88.34 KB, 733x182, everything was blue.PNG)
I asked my scrote what design he liked and he said purple was his favourite. They probably made Scara blue because it's to represent his character growth and he's moved on from his "mother". NGL I like the blue on him.

But blue is so damn overdone in genshin. Like when Mona got censored and they changed her from purple to blue. Layla, faruzan, all cryo characters and most of the hydro characters are blue.
File: 1667229724132.jpg (232.87 KB, 1920x1080, u78nE8g.jpg)
you know by now that everyone in Teyvet is on an intense skin bleaching regime kek. I still find it funny Mihoyo had to make Rosaria purple to show she's pale.
Natlan is probably going to be the least pale region with the south american and orisha inspo. This tinfoiling but since Iansan is the archon of death & rebirth. they will throw in Voodoo and Mayan culture into it. Since hoyo likes to mix + match and both of those cultures have well known mythology about death.
File: 1667230736139.png (38.45 KB, 651x326, pokemon-munna-and-musharna-pac…)
from a story standpoint it makes sense. Blue is overdone in Genshin and I wish Layla was pink/purple so she could be like Munna in pokemon.
I was at least expecting more peach or olive tones as the default since we're meant to be in a rainforest/desert region. But Mihoyo really said, "fuck that", lol.>>251811
I hope Natlan at least attempts to have some variety. Or at least not a repeat of here where there's like 3 tannish characters, and the rest are like Dragon Maid expsy or some shit.
Now that you mention it I finally realized what irks me about their designs so much, they both actually do look like Miku prize figurines kek. They don't look like they even belong in the game much less members of the Akademiya. >>251807
Okay I'm fine with the current design that we got but this would've been much cooler.

The collective insanity I’ve seen from men on Twitter about Scaramouche is insane. Spamming scaraflop, trying to hype up Faruzan instead to no avail kek. Girls be wary of any theorycrafters (scrotes) that will doompost about him. Characters like Scara are unappealing to moids because he’s the “bad boy that girls love” which makes “nice guy” scrotes seethe. Especially since Scara now has overtaken all waifus in popularity it sends a clear message to the devs that catering to the female gaze is lucrative for business, which moids don’t want.
I'm a lesbian and I will never fucking understand the obsession teenage "lesbians" have with her and trying to push her as some peak girl love representation when she's nothing more than an autistic coomer waifu. EiMiko is the worst fucking ship hill to die on and nothing will ever convince me of it deserving its popularity, it's telling when it's popular with only 15-year old k-pop stans while the legitimate adult lesbians are way more interested in Beigguang. >>251968
Why do they even care? They have the entire world's worth of waifu gacha games to play, Honkai is the closest alternative with absolutely no playable male characters to ruin their jerking session. And why are they surprised? People have been waiting for Scara for literally years, did they think people would just forget about him like moids forget about the waifu they got last patch?

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.
I feel like it's just for people to spend more primos on the same banners to max out two constellations but i think it's cool.

It is bait. Stop being butthurt about it >>252039
I am okay with it. If you dislike the 4-star you can always just shove Bennett into the team to compensate. But the niche 4-star opens for team comp possibilities without Bennett being necessary
most yaoi is written by women, most yuri is written by men. so lesbians looking for good romances with themes like homophobia or unrequited love will read yaoi by women.
that bl and gl ships are all on the same level in genshin unless this nonnie
>>252007 is talking about the actual fan content in genshin then i agree. most genshin fancontent with gl ships feel like they were written by scrotes.
personally for genshin ships i like ei x lumine because i'm a sucker for villains hero ships.
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. >>252042
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.
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.
File: 1667317273229.png (3.3 MB, 1448x2048, 4536435346346.png)
Why did the internet suddenly decide that fujos and husbandofags can be lesbians? Have you ever seen any gay scrotes who read yuri? No. So stop this retarded cope, "lesbians" who religiously read about men boning each other aren't lesbians, they are just bisexual.
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. >>251807
I don't mind his new design and colors that much, but his old color scheme was just so much more iconic. They should've at least left a bit of the red.
It annoys me when I kind of like and want to use the character (Sara).
It doesn't bother me if I never really planned on using the character anyway (Gorou, Faruzan). I'll still build them for the acquaint fates and namecard tho. Faruzan looks like she may have a pretty namecard.

Pfffft it just keeps getting better, the moid seething continues
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.

If Kaveh or Baizhu are good dendro supports we'll have another meta husbando team with Razor, Bennett, Xingqiu and one of them. I know meta isn't important in a game like Genshin but I love it when metafags seethe about good all-husbando teams.

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.

kek, its probably because the female characters in genshin have these weird requirements that they do not look like there proffesion.
It’s a shame because her hairstyle is very cute and reminds me of cinnamoroll. She’d look cute in a scarf and warm clothing tbh. But nooooo, hoyo wants armpits and crotch holes. >>252481

That reminds me, the whole game is like ~40 gigs on PS4, but it's not that big on mobile right? I was always curious.

i did not, i think her design is cute but i really do not like the kid models, the gameplay always feels off with them. Exploring or fighting ect, i guess its because im just so used to using the bigger characters it feels off. I think her character is fine, except the amount of doodoo jokes. I will also ignore the fact that mihoyo uses the trope that shes actually 500 years old and totally not a child guys. >but her ult feels really useless
I did not understand how her ult worked at all during the trial run, i though it would apply lots of dendro like the whole time while shes offield but i guess thats not the case? At least it looks pretty.

It's nice how HYV leaned into a different interpretation for wisdom rather than the usual "smart, calm, mature adult" that people would've expected when they first learned about the dendro archon.
I really didn't like that they made her a little girl when I saw her the first time, but now that we know her story it makes sense and I actually prefer Nahida over getting someone that would've just been Zhongli part 2.

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.
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. >>252900
Yeah definitely. Metafags have polluted all the social media platforms so it unfortunately implicitly affected my view of the game. I’m glad that dev interview came out where the devs literally said that they don’t want the game to cause anxiety with more spiral abyss-like gameplay. It solidifies that the game is in fact casual.

Yeah a lot of players seem to treat their accounts as investments almost. It really should not be that way.
A lot of Genshin YouTubers had complete mental breakdowns when the dev interview came out. I am happy about it. You can pull literally any character you like, nothing in the game is stopping you from it. >>252967
Definitely not the only sperg but she is very obviously underage and bait all the time.
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.

i take it back nonnas, it looks like he made it. Dottore might be playable someday after all. unless like Signora they wait until next region to off his ass
I hope so. I really loved his appearances so far, but honestly I’d even be happy with a boss battle and some more story presence.>>252943
Sumeru is the region I’ve been most excited by since the beginning. I really love Persian culture and history and the art nouveau aesthetic plus the rainforest setting are so appealing to me. Naztlan and Fontaine both look like they could be cool as well. I’m not excited for snezhnaya at all other than the story though.

I got it and it’s a cool realm
That interview was terrible. 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.>>253249
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.

Yikes, yeah not pulling nahida for this very reason.
I just finished the sumeru archon quest. How do you feel about it anons? I felt really bad for Scara during the gnosis scene tbh.
>>253290>And she's just cute like cute
Agree to disagree. She's a run of the mill wise 500 year old loli created by and for degenerate lolicons, will never see that trash as "cute"
>They need some way to get people to pay money.
As if there aren't a billion better ways to do that. Weird bootlicker take.
It's usually always moids who try to sell you on getting the newest waifu with bullshit numbers from overworked meta that no sane person would spend so much time on. The hardest I grind is for artifacts sometimes but even then I'm not calculating numbers because whatever will be will be and because I won't do math if I can help it lol.
I'm still early in the archon quest, but I like Nahida enough and like one anon said, her playing hopscotch is super adorable. I froze when she said "dook dook" though. Why…

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

>>253779>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
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.
File: 1667832415670.jpeg (484.4 KB, 1920x1896, 175AAB65-2A94-4C29-864C-94CAC3…)
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.
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.

3.3 first banner phase is itto and scara! I love this because i still need gorou cons so i hope gorou is included in the banner. Also that weapon banner will be looking very good for me, i might try to get both weapons.>>254059
Yeah the jean part was super boring, so was the beidou and yoimiya mini game tbh.
Yeah, if you weren't lined up exactly right her burst knocks things diagonal, and her charged attack knocks upward so that was no help. Luckily I didn't get it again in the 3 random plays.
And I just realized that doing Kazuha's story quest gives you a weapon so I'm doing it and once again an inanimate object has a sexy (JP) voice, damn stop teasing me. Varka better have a cool design and deep voice whenever he shows up.

I needed to get hydro and cryo artifacts for my mona, kaeya and kokomi. So I finally got around to getting dragonspine domain. Did anyone else get stuck on the last shard and scarlet quartz? It feels like i spent 3 hours climbing up and trying to jump to reach it. i hated it.>>254228
we're getting a new sandstorm area similar to dragonspine and the chasm>>254337
a 5 star geo bow or catalyst user would be cool
natlan seems to be a mix of pre-colonial south america and west africa, as the only character we know is a little kid called iansan, which is the name of an goddess worshipped in yoruba and afro-brazilian religions. i have no idea how they are going to mix this since the west african influence over south america is due to colonization and slavery
but anyway, if that's actually the case the music will probably be awesome, looking foward to it
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.
>Shenhe that still hasn't got a rerun
because everyone forgot about her half way through her original banner. I've never seen anyone, not even coomers, beg for a shenhe rerun.

Used Razor to clear Abyss. Seethe metafag scrotes.>>254381
It would be kind of nice if Geo wasn't just golden physical, but that seems to be what Hoyo wants to do with it. I don't see it getting buffed, Geo teams will just get stronger and stronger supports and DPSes.
What console were you on? My sister had the same issue on mobile but when she used the ps4 it activated
Ah I'd kill for a proper geo catalyst… and another geo sword character, here's hope>>254381
I don't really care about metafag, but to hoyo they control the game since they want to wipe the abyss in 2 seconds or something, I just want more geos and chances we won't get anything but reruns because no one likes it except few
I think the people who want her reruns are for the Ayaka/Eula buff, I actually want her rerun too but hate her design so much>>254382
Based queen, I recommend trying Xinyan since she too is physical and can clear the 12th floor (provided you have benny with her)
Speaking of in game stuff in my team of Itto/zhongli/Albedo/Gorou, who should I replace for Venti? The team is super Unga bunga but enemies scatter way too much that itto spends his burst chasing them lol
Extremely based post. I use monogeo all the time and don't break a sweat during boss battles and don't have to spend my time doing calculated rotation nonsense every 2 seconds. I really like the defense to attack scaling system myself since for a lot of other characters you have to sacrifice their resistance in the favor of everything else.
>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.>>254382
What team did you use nonnie
> I love Razor, he's a cutie. >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.>>254413>Speaking of in game stuff in my team of Itto/zhongli/Albedo/Gorou, who should I replace for Venti?
Either zhongli or albedo. If you can live without the shield i would remove zhongli since albedo does good damage.
Unrelated, but I just noticed that Itto looks like he has heterochromia in his official art (as well as some kind of symbol in his eyes) but in-game his eyes are normal and both the same color. What is up with that?
Your pic reminded me of that.

>>254413>to hoyo they control the game since they want to wipe the abyss in 2 seconds or something
What? Hoyo has made it very clear that normies control the game and the already easy spiral abyss is as relevant as combat strength will ever get. Metafags have been crying ever since this dev interview. It sunk in that all the farming, constellation and weapon pulling, and mouth breathing done in the name of muh meta past being able to clear the abyss with 36 stars was nothing but a massive waste of time.

The only time meta matters is exploration and leveling up. I got Diluc and it's nice to have him at level 40 but deal out the same damage as a level 70 character.
sidenote, seeing as Yae showed up in the fungi tournament I hope Childe shows up to. Also based on their interactions Yae x Layla is such a wattpad pairing kek. Tired college student x mean Ceo kek.
I wish we could pick any sumeru 4 star like in the new years event instead of getting the genie, then again we barely have any sumeru 4 stars kaveh needs to hurry up and get a banner
I used the full EM Razor team with Bennett, Xingqiu, and Nahida because I'm too lazy to figure out how to best use MC.>>254413
Gorou isn't necessary
use a shield or xingqiu. imagine making a team in genshit that doesn't include a shield or xingqiu.
and in the last gameplay leak it showed that he can dash out of that falling animation while his E is still active, meaning recovery time is fast.

Diluc…>Favorite thing to do in the game
Honestly, I like pre-farming mats and saving primos for characters a lot. I love pulling for a 5*, spending 80 pulls all at once and leveling the character from lvl 1 to 90 in the blink of an eye. It makes me feel proud of myself, kek.
I also enjoy most of the events. And lowkey like Abyss and trying to surpass the DPS checks with my husbandos.
Thank you for the questions, anon.

This is not a drill
