Is Baizhu worth pulling? People are calling him broken as fuck but I'm too small brained to figure it out.

No. 288276

>>288275
Really? I thought people were calling him a slightly worse yaoyao. From what I understand, he's a good enough healer and his shield is more for resistance to interruption but his healing makes up for the low hp of the shields. His dendro application is single target though, which is why yaoyao might be preferred. Still, I say you should wait till he's been out for at least a week before pulling if you're not sure. Seeing characters in practice changes the general opinion sometimes.

Also don't mindlessly listen to every youtuber you come across because a lot of them assume you have Nahida and built everyone or something. It's hard to find a proper reviewer that doesn't say "this other character is better and you'll use her so don't bother getting the husbando"

You're right, nonny. A lot of theorycrafters assume you're playing with certain teams or builds and tend to compare characters to other characters when I most likely wouldn't even want to waste my gems on the other one.

I'm rolling for him because he's hot and Yusa Kouji. Nobody in Fontaine seems that interesting so nothing else to save for.
Reveal Varka when?
Actually ever since I learned last week that my number one husbando's voice actor played two minor NPC's in English I've been wondering if he could voice a major character like Varka.

I've heard the "broken af" line of reasoning as well as the "Yaoyao better" ones too and honestly it's too early to decide regardless. Remember that people shat on Kokomi and Kazuha when they came out and now both are indispensable. I personally want Baizhu for my Cyno team/Tighnari team so my other abyss teams are free to use Zhongli and other supports.

I finally got around to finishing Faruzan's hangout and I honestly liked her way more than I expected. She was really relatable to me actually. I never hated her design as much as other nonas did, but it grew on me a lot over the course of the hangout as well. I still won't use her though since I only have her at C1.

Also found some of her scrapped designs. I feel bad for saying this as it's one of the less revealing outfits but I don't find Yunjin's current look appealing at all. I find it pretty ugly actually… I wish they went with the red design or any of the scrapped ones, they look better imo.

Idk yet if he's worth pulling but I'm getting him either way. It seems like Fontaine has almost no husbando's and I wouldn't know what to do if we have another drought like in Inazuma. Since the only that I'm currently using in my teams right now is Bennet it would be nice to have another healer.

>>288425
I also liked her hangout and I feel your strungle with only having her c1. It's so annoying how both her and Sara need a lot of constellations to fix issues in there kit.

It really looks like that’s the case for Fontaine. Several different leakers for several months see no indications of more than like 4 male characters. Maybe they’ll release more 4-star males since there’s a lack of them? Sumeru has been a male 5-star update definitely. Either way now is the time to pull for the husbandos you want and max them during Fontaine to keep yourself busy.

Ackchyually Sara's ""issues"" (normies cant play a technical character yet again) dont get fixed with cons, her burst just becomes such a good electro buff, that people can go away with just using it instead of malding with charged shots. Faruzan energy generation and lack of fitting arti set besides tenacity at c6 are definite issues though.

I don't think 'nowhere' is a correct assertion considering that she's quite clearly based on the Honkai character Pardofelis. Whether you like the trend of Honkai characters getting inserted into Teyvat is up for your personal discretion (and fair enough if you don't), but it does make sense lore-wise (we all know Teyvat is one of Honkai's bubble universes), and besides, I am pretty biased considering I love her Honkai character and she's a fantastic DPS.

"Mostly" is an understatement… Ayato's in game model has a weird face and his suit and body are stiff as hell, I skipped all his rate ups because of how bad it is.

The irony of saying 'switch to Japanese' to a post wanting him to sound like a normal man when Tighnari in Japanese is very badly voiced by a female voice actor. I play in jp and cringe every time he opens his mouth. She gives Tighnari such a weird and unnatural intonation and ruins his character. Worst dub in the game imo.

Aww, Baizhu isn't on the first banner of the new patch, I wanna roll.
But Nahida is getting a second story quest so I finally finished her first, and it went a bit unexpected sci-fi again. But if there's one thing I really hate it's video games trying to moralize about escapism being bad.

I like Kaeluc and I believe that each person is free to interpret their relationship however they want to. Either way, they canonically aren't related by blood and I PERSONALLY don't see them as brothers in any sense of the word. I just wouldn't feel comfortable shipping two characters if I also thought of them as being related. So, from my perspective, I haven't done anything 'problematic' or 'immoral' as my OPINION is that them being brothers is not true. Where I'm going with this is that I want to ship what are to me two consenting and unrelated adult characters. But the Kaeluc fandom are fucking freaks. They REVEL in calling them brothers and love drawing fucked up pedo art and relishing the incestual interpretation of their dynamic. And the people who hate Kaeluc are also fucking freaks who tell people to kill themselves over drawings and force their own (brotherly) interpretation of their relationship onto everyone else despite the fact it's up to each individual to decide. As a result, both groups have sucked out all the joy of shipping them. Does anyone else like Kaeluc and feel this way? Are there any pro-Kaeluc places I can go without bumping into fucking incest-loving freaks? (I'm okay with nsfw, just not their 'Oh, yes! Fuck me brother' weird shit). You could argue it's my fault since I should have known what I was walking into, but I just wanna know if there are even any other sane Kaeluc shippers at all

No. 288921

>>288916
i love kaeluc and i don't see them as actual brothers (because it's obvious they're not), more like childhood friends who lived together but there is nothing wrong with liking incest in fiction and it doesn't mean you want to fuck your siblings irl. you can think it's degenerate but it's actually a pretty mild taboo fetish. i like seeing brothers fuck in yaoi for instance, but i dislike hetero incest. also even if kaeluc were stepbros, it wouldn't be a problem to ship them because "stepsiblings get married" is a very common trope in anime
i don't know why is everyone so dramatic about this

No. 288949

>>288916
I always think it's funny when people claim that Kaeluc is incest, because they aren't blood related. Like one look at Kaeya's appearance and then comparing it to Diluc can show you that they are not brothers kek. I also see them as childhood friends, it's just because of the english translation that people actually believe they are family.

>>288811
I wish you luck with getting c6 Kazuha! Mine is currently C2 and I would love to get his C6 eventually. But right now I want to get some other constellations from different characters first. I really want to get C2 Zhongli and maybe even C4 if my pulls go well. No idea when he reruns though. I also had the thought of maybe going for C6 Xiao instead of Kazuha. But Kazuha his burst is just so pretty.

i'm not sure if i really want baizhu or not, i'm on a coinflip and i want kaveh so of course if i get baizhu off pity it wouldn't bother me but since i'm not buying welkin anymore so my primo stash is limited i wonder if i should wait for the prison warden from fountaine instead since he sounds more my alley. but who knows when that guy is released, it could be next year at this rate. there's also lyney and although i'm not a big fan of his design i need more pyro characters. i already have a bunch of dendros i use (tighnari, alhaitham, kaveh soon) so i'm not sure if i'm really going to need baizhu, i was thinking that maybe he will be a busted dendro kokomi but apparently he's not that great for an alhaitham team?

No. 288969

Okay, I may have gone a little off the rails just because I'm pretty damn tired of the weirder shit. I know fiction doesn't equal reality. But MAN do I get some serious second-hand embarrassment when I see kaeluc artists and writers laud their incest fetish like it's a genuine badge of honour for the sake of 'owning the antis'… like c'mon dude… have some self-respect… you don't exactly have the high ground here kek

No. 288975

If you don't really want Baizhu just keep saving your primos. If you don't want Lyney don't go for him. There's no guarantee he'll still be Pyro once he's released, we've already gotten conflicting information on whether Lynette is going to be an Anemo 4 star or a Hydro 5 star and it doesn't sound like either one is coming soon. If you want Wrothsley/Risley save for Risley.
>>288949
I'm going for Kazuha now because it seems like he's going to be a one rerun a year kind of character, they don't like rereleasing him. Xiao is cool at C6, he gets a whole new playstyle with his E spam.

No. 288977

>>288916
In my experience they're usually being reactive contrarians and that's why they're doing it for the shock value, to stir controversy. The people revering in how "them being brothers only makes it hotter and puritans can kiss my ass" usually like loli porn and other degenerate shit too because they're addicted to the drama it causes, not the subject matter in itself.

>>288967
Fontaine won't be coming until maybe September(?) and chances are that he won't be in the first banner so you'll have plenty of time to save up on primos. Maybe just wait until Baizhu's been out for around halfway of his banner and see people's opinions on him and make the decision based on that? His kit is really hard to decipher and there are a lot of opposing opinions at the moment so take it slow.

No. 288987

>>288967
You are lucky because Baizhu his banner will be at the end of the new patch, that means that you can wait till the last moment and see if we got any more leaks about when future characters you might like more will arrive.

That's the problem with ongoing mobile games, the story will be continued once they get to it. Kaenriyah and the Abyss is endgame, we have to go through Fontaine/Natlan first before they'll really get deep into it I'm sure. And there'll be many pointless/fun? events in between.

I think we'll get more crumbs in Fontaine, probably in a filler patch where we don't get any map updates. They made the Archon quest in Sumeru tie in to the Khaenri'ah plot with some major reveals so Focalors will likely have more than a shrug and "I dunno" to tell us. If the beta voicelines are still at all relevant to the main story then Natlan, and Murata specifically, will probably have a lot to tell and share, since Venti in the beta had lines strongly suggesting Murata was going to give her god powers to the Traveler.

Northeast is Mountains and you can see Liyue, Southwest is more desert, and then an ocean? Do we know if any of the other countries are on an island or over an ocean?
The new Anemo Hillchurls look cool, but then they had to make me feel sad by dropping flowers…
And somehow I managed to explore the entire map before getting around to the first waypoint that gives you the intro quest haha, wonder how many rolls I'll have saved up before Baizhu and Kaveh come out, already have 255.

And finally finished Stone Harbors Nostalgia after getting each achievement almost a year apart… And half of Good Sign done. So much hidden RNG stuff.

What did you get nonas?
I lost Nahida to Dehya… I love Dehya’s design, I wish her kit was better and also I don’t really need pyro now. She’s pretty much useless to me. At least Baizhu guaranteed.
Also got:
>C1 Kuki (which I really wanted)
>C1 Dori (which I really didn’t want)
>two 4* weapons (fuuuuck weapons on character banners)
I really wanted Layla cons but I’m scared to spend more wishes because I really want Kaveh.

i don't understand jp haikaveh shippers who try to force the idea that kaveh is obviously into women (??) but he falls for alhaitham like what's up with these people just asking to be cucked? even in a game like genshin where the subject of romance is literally never brought up they somehow created the idea that kaveh must be some sort of skirt chasing playboy solely because he's blonde. do these people just breathe same exact tropes again and again

No. 289136

>>289134
They do that? I follow a ton of jp Haikaveh shippers and I've never seen it happen, all of them see Kaveh as the very gay coded man that he is. I find that a weird thought though, he's pretty clearly a work-oriented artist passionate about sacrificing himself for his work and to make others happy to the point he goes into deep debt, I wouldn't associate him with being some sort of a playboy.

>that kaveh is obviously into women (??) but he falls for alhaitham
JP female players are obviously influenced by japanese BL. The blonde and extroverted uke who is a womanizer acting tsundere towards the cool seme as he falls in love with him is one of the most popular tropes for decades. It’s not really about getting cucked but more about the trope that a character who is popular and a smooth talker becomes tsun tsun with his true love.
>do these people just breathe same exact tropes again and again
Yes. They’ve placed Alhaitham and Kaveh into these exact tropes.

Honestly cool seme Alhaitham and extroverted uke Kaveh is the worst interpretation of their ship, it’s so boring. Personally I think it would be better to just ditch the seme uke shit, their personalities don’t fall into it that well anyway. I get how they’d get it from the JP voices though, they sound much more stereotypically old school BL in them.

Idk this is just my personal opinion, I mostly have problems with Alhaitham, he as a cool stoic unshakable seme is so boring to me. Straight or gay ship with him I'd prefer to see him a bit shook and flustered. I also don't think he'd be in tune with his emotions enough to pursue Kaveh. But his JP actor does sound like he has 0 emotions and is the exact fit to the trope so I get that interpretation, he doesn't sound snarky and a bit rude like the other languages.

Alhaitham is just a bit autistic kek. I really feel like he’s a Diluc reskin (in a good way), because similarly to Diluc he is a softie at heart when it comes to his family. Alhaitham really loved his grandma and has a tragic past with dead parents, just like Kaveh who was abandoned by his single mother who left him and remarried in Fontaine. Alhaitham does describe Kaveh as a perfect mirror, and Kaveh describes them as two sides of a mirror. They are opposites who in some way complete each other. So I think it’s cute that Alhaitham is a bit stoic in contrast to Kaveh. Similar pasts, different personalities. Just like Kaeya and Diluc.

Maybe it was to give her a more sporty look but the shorts that they show have no detail either so it looks lame.

I wanted to tell you she can transform because she’s a nekomata but apparently I was confusing it with bakeneko. Nekomata mostly only transform into older women to cause trouble but aren’t shapeshifters if I understand correctly so I think the devs also mistook bakeneko and nekomata.

>Some tales state that these demons, like bakeneko, assume human appearances, usually appearing as older women, behaving badly in public, and bringing gloom and malevolence wherever they travel.

>with this folk belief sometimes the kasha, a yōkai that steals the corpses of the dead, are seen to be the same as the nekomata.
> Cats are often associated with death in Japan, and this particular spirit is often blamed. Far darker and malevolent than most bakeneko, the nekomata is said to have powers of necromancy, and upon raising the dead, will control them with ritualistic dances - gesturing with paw and tail.

Her kit screams made by two different people who wanted two different things. Her skill could have been good like Albedo's, but it needed way stronger damage and faster application. If it procced every time you attacked, for example, or even every second she would have been a great Ayato support. Ayato loves being unable to be interrupted and fast application. But then her burst suggests building her like a hypercarry? But her scaling is much too weak for that, she needed five times the damage and be able to trigger other skills like Xingqiu or Yelan. She just sucks and her useless tanking passive that nobody wanted or asked for eats too much power budget.
It says something when Thoma is considered a better tank option than a tank-type 5*.

I read your post wrong and thought you said pyro works with dendro well kek So that's what I mean too, pyros other than vaping is nice. She sucks but at least she doesn't do the same thing as every other unit of her element, it's at least a sign that they're not going to give us diluc no13876 with the next pyro unit, no? I'd rather wait till they make unique kits than just switch my crimson to the next pyro husbando and not build a new unique team. I think Dehya's case could be helped with her kit increasing her dendro reactions for example, so it's not unthinkable they'll add those mechanics to another pyro now.

In other news, what do you nonnies think about Yoimiya getting a second story quest in 3.7? It looks like most characters won’t be getting a second story quest, if this pace stays the same we would get a Dehya part 2 quest in Shneznaya. No way that they’ll be able to do all characters with how often we get new ones. It’s weird that Yoimiya was chosen as one of the few to get a part 2. I always thought Albedo would get one sooner than later. Childe is definitely getting a mainline archon quest story in Shneznaya and Venti is probably getting a huge lore dump one around endgame.

Both FoPL and GD should be good for Kaveh. It really just depends whether you want to be running the Deepwood/GD domain or the FoPL/DPC domain.

Im conflicted on baizhu vs alhaitham. Ill get kaveh and if i get baizhu in the process ill raise him for my future tighnari, but im on guarantee too so if i dont get baizhu when i get kaveh, im wondering if i should wait to use my guarantee for alhaitham? I really started to like him and he seems to be a good unit i wont die trying to build a team for but well he'll be the same as kaveh gameplaywise right? So idk if it makes sense to get both, if theyll both use the same team. I dont want to bench kaveh after getting haitham like i had to bench heizou after wanderer kek theyre just the same unit where the 5* is better. Anynonnies struggling with this decision too? Im open to good or bad advertisement for alhaitham to sway my opinion too kek

Nonas who have built both Wanderer and Xiao, how do you feel like they compare?

I rolled Wanderer/Scaramouche back when he came out, but I've put off building him even though I have LPttSW, and my Xiao only has a Deathmatch. I'm sure a built Wanderer would feel stronger than my Xiao, and likely less jank too, but I worry that it won't be enough of an improvement to really justify the investment when I could working on support/sub-dps characters. (I'm a pretty on-and-off player and I've only gotten to 31 stars in the abyss.)

No. 290923

>>290910
Xiao is a close combat polearm user and Wanderer is a long range catalyst user, even more so since he has the ability to float and dash through midair. I think Xiao's main problem is that he's locked to his burst while Wanderer can deal out damage more consistently thanks to his relatively low E cooldown, but it all boils down to which playstyle you prefer personally. I think they're both great anemo DPSs, just handle very differently.

No. 290943

>>290910
Dps calculations have shown that they are the same level of strength so they should produce the same dps numbers. Xiao’s teams feel a bit restrictive to me. I can play around with Wanderer’s teams more as long as I have a shielder.

No. 290957

>>290910
I find wanderer a more enjoyable to play in the over world, but in basically any other setting they're pretty similar. Unless you are incredibly bored with Xiao's pogo stick gameplay and need an anemo DPS for some reason, prioritize other characters. A good sub-dps will make every other character more fun.

Like with most female characters in the game, Mihoyo really missed their mark with her setting. They could've made something interesting out of a character that owns a funeral parlor and being in close proximity with death and handling it with respect but then they just dropped the ball entirely and made her a "tee hee goofy hyperactive funny girl" who bombed hard at rapping. It's a continuous problem too, they have a lot of female characters that could be really good but they get flanderized by the game immediately because women having actual relevance is dumb I presume.

Yes males who exclusively like yuri are often low esteem weirdos. They also often are self inserting, we see it with how many millions of troons mention watching lesbian porn and saying they imagined themselves as female during sex. We also know many fujos are self inserting because so many of them are he/hims.

Kek that's true. I don't know why people here imagine yumejos as these hot pretty stacies while in reality it's most likely the opposite, not too different from fujos (except cringier because they self-insert). I've seen so many average/below average chubby women self-insert or imagine themselves are pretty dainty femme uwu girlfriends with big boobs and ass. They're often pretty embarassing.

No. 291276

their reasoning is that stacies prefer hetero romcoms/shoujo (because it's normie stuff) therefore hetshippers and yumejos are all stacies by default. it's dumb because by that logic a lot of stacies also kiss their female friends, are fag hags so it's obvious they like gay shit in fiction too

Anyone else get really surprised in the short little quest followup from Nahida's story quest when it actually had a playable character not being voiced? It made me realize that I'm not sure we've ever had a playable character appear in a world quest and not an archon/story/hangout quest before. They seem to want to have the playable characters basically always be voiced, but I really wish they would be willing to put them in world quests unvoiced. I feel like we would get a lot more interesting content if we were able to have world quests with the actual characters and not npcs

I also found the abyss easy, the previous one was really anoying. For first half I use Alhaitham with Nahida, Kuki and Fischl.

For second half i used Childe national, I use him every abyss.

We've seen Neuvilette ages ago, anon. Not a new leak.
Also for Baizhu you're recommended to at least get C1, otherwise it seems like he'll struggle with energy. Alhaitham constellations are very whatever.

Focalors' kit sounds underwhelming as fuck. I'm sure the buffs will be massive if this leak is true, gotta make sure the Archons are all good, but who wants to have to waste two slots on a healer and buffer when you can just run Bennett and do both?

Kaveh feels so clunky to use for me. His attacks are so slow in applying dendro and somehow my collei and baizhu or xingqiu keep creating the bloom seeds. Any tips to make him the seed creator instead of his batteries? I saw a youtuber use kazuha as a battery too but I cant understand how an anemo will be better than a dendro, it could help me avoid collei's fast application though. If nonnies shared their kaveh teams and builds it would help a lot. Also I have mona but she's usually in my freeze team. Might use her if it's more suitable to have 2 hydro though

They were asking about what motivates to explore new areas in the survey, it's nice that they ask about this kind of stuff even if it doesn't really change how they dev.
I really hope they keep the zipline flower mechanic around in new areas, it's really fun. And world quests that actually get you moving around the areas and give them a bit of history so it's more than just a pretty view.

I hate the zipline flowers and the trampoline, they're so clunky and unsatisfying to use.

And don't most people just explore for gems? I hope they look at all those people and feel sad no one unironically wants to touch that shitty desert. I don't even want to do it for that anymore until they add the skip dialog button, cuz I know that has to be the most requested feature since launch and for good reason.

NTA but I explore for the fun of it and to learn new lore, but it really depends on the environment. The rainforest was really rewarding and fun but most of the desert is just an endless wasteland without any variation. The zipline flowers are fun because they save a ton of time in running around and make long trips across the map or up a vertical surface more tolerable.

Of course I explore for primos, but I also enjoy the music and views.
I actually really enjoyed the vibe of the desert ruins and the pretty skyboxes. And all the desert music was really good.

I liked the new area in the Desert the best, where there was a mix of Desert and Rainforesty vibes. The giant glowing tree is neat. I think the complaints about the Desert would have been significantly alleviated if the map had a toggle for underground and surface like the interactive map has. It would have made exploring way less confusing.
>>294346
I love to explore. I've 100% the entire world so far. I don't see the point in even playing the game if you don't like exploring Teyvat but to each their own I guess.
>>294363
>>294385
I see potential in Fontaine if it's heavily inspired by Jules Verne's books and not grounded in reality, but if it's really just "go explore British and French landscapes" that is going to be really boring. Natlan at least should be neat with the West African and Mezoamerican vibes as long as it's not more endless desert.

Anons who pulled, what do you think about Baizhu? I really need a healer cause I don’t really have one but I’m debating on waiting for Kazuha in the next patch instead.

No. 294421

>>294398
If you want a 5 star healer your options are limited between him and Kokomi unless you lose a 50/50 to Qiqi. I like him and think he's good, he's a more defensive option than Kokomi who is more of a sub-dps who heals. I think Baizhu is more suitable than Kokomi if you're playing a hypercarry team of some kind since he really doesn't need much on-field time.
That being said if you just want a healbot there's lots of 4 star options like Kuki, Bennett, Yaoyao, or Barbara if you're really desperate.

No. 294436

>>294398
I think the most important factor is what kind of teams you want to run. Dendro teams, specifically hyperbloom, are great for getting easy damage due to their high floor, but if you have teams like freeze or vape that you want to improve, especially if you don't have sucrose or if you're in need of grouping and don't have venti, kazuha is probably better. If alternatively you don't care about meta or damage at all and just want to pull for quality of life purposes, I'd say just build up a 4-star healer and go for kazuha. Baizhu's a good healer but if you don't specifically want/need a dendro healer then he's probably not worth the pulls

I recommend building a 4 healer because a 5 really doesnt make too much of a difference, probably just heals more than you need. If your 4*s are not healing enough it's likely a build issue, which is very easy to fix for healers cause they need 2 stats at most. Kazuha on the other hand is way more useful than any other anemo support. That said, pulling for characters you like will never fail you.

All dendro units require another element to work big numbers but since Alhaitham is a DPS he manages fine. It's just that hyperbloom (i.e. Kuki and Xingqiu) ups his damage to S+ levels. I'm really hoping that they'll release a male electro support soon.

Yeah, I know, sales figures like this aren't 100% accurate, blabla. But I'm honestly surprised that Baizhu is selling this terribly. I kind of thought he was at least somewhat anticipated since he has been in the game for such a long time and was the first dendro character we have ever seen, and he is also the first 5 star dendro healer/shielder.

No. 296034

>>296006
He's a healer, healers aren't popular. Also his weapon sucks even on him, which doesn't incentivize pulling for it, and he ran right after Nahida so people's wallets are likely drained from pulling for her. It's a combo of factors.

He did better than Kokomi, I'll take that as a small win. Honestly I'm amazed Dehya's banner did better, but I'm wondering if Cyno didn't carry her a bit. Say what you want about Cyno's playstyle but his first banner had pretty good sales and his weapon works well on Xiangling if nothing else.

that ugly world did not have half as much effort and/or thought put into it's design as you're giving it credit for, especially not when you remember how much money genshin's made them.

>orchestral music, 4 different language voice overs and console support

most chinese gachas have minimum 2 dubs, this one isn't special. know the norms of these games before you praise genshin for standard features. they do all this because they want their game to succeed, it isn't that deep. I remember how transparently money hungry they came across in interviews before it came out. it runs terribly on everything that isn't an expensive PC btw, being lazily slapped on a bunch of other platforms with little to no effort into making it run decently on said platforms should be the last thing you bring up when you're trying to grasp for straws as to why YOUR cash grab gacha isn't like the other cash grab gachas. they couldn't even be bothered to follow through with the switch version because lord knows they're not willing to allocate the resources needed to get that terribly optimized mess running on the overpriced 2015 android tablet that is the switch kek.

it's more in line with your standard gacha cashgrab than any "real" game, dead open world or not, and all but the most delusional genshinfags will rightfully treat it as such. the gameplay speaks for itself. it's still okay to like it or any other gacha anyways. you don't have to deny reality to justify your taste, it's just a game.

Since he's a claymore being Cryo would be an advantage, but the weapon type has hitlag and kind slow af so either a kit that speeds his dps or straight up sub-dps support.

you mean open world? an open world doesn't make a game good, nonny. it's a gimmick trendy with people who've never played one before, cash grabs are characterized by gimmicks and trend hopping. if the novelty of an open world no matter how dead and ugly is so impressive to you that it keeps you doing the same mind numbing daily tasks, recycled events, and unsatisfying exploration for 2 gem chests so you can buy a gacha character once every 4 months then good for you. enjoy it and all the other mobagay open world cash grabs cropping up while the trend is still alive. the tears of the kingdom hype might've even extended its lifeline—not to imply you should expect a mobagay to attempt to mimick anything that game has to offer other than the open world and moe twink protagonist. or only play genshin 5ever because I doubt you'll have the stamina to pick up another after all the suffering it's subconsciously put you through.

I'll go for Alhaitham. I'm tired of building characters but I want to have both him and Kaveh for fujo purposes. Also I feel like the first few characters of Fontaine will be a pass for me.

I assume it'll be more active when Fontaine drops but I feel like the pointless ship and character design fights drove people away so it's not that active even when there's male story heavy events…

Not that long as I pulled for Baizhu too, but I still have a few tens of thousands of primos. I have C2 Kazuha already and guaranteed pity so it hopefully won't take too long to get him, but I'll spend if I have to. If I have leftover primos I'll likely go for a LoFI for him but I have Mistsplitter on him already which I think is second best in slot for C6?

If it's dps you want then definitely stick with Mistsplitter but for support either his signature or r1-5 Xiphos' Moonlight, this one keeps my bursts always ready if you have energy problems (like me)

No. 298068

>>298062
Yeah, he's going to be a DPS. Wanderer's playstyle just wasn't very appealing to me. I don't find I really have energy issues right now, Kazuha gets his burst back and is ready for a new rotation almost right away. I thought Light of Foliar Incision might beat out Mistsplitter because of the EM bonus attack and higher crit but I guess the elemental damage bonus is too good to ignore.

Also that art is hilariously bad.

You're right, that would be a lot better. I didn't notice the boots at first but the way they flare out at the top to meet the pants is so odd. Like an eggcup.

Apparently Qiqi was going to have a Character Quest that was later scrapped. I'm torn, because it sounded like it kind of just regurgitated info we already knew about Qiqi and I'd rather something that focused more on her and Baizhu rather than NPCs, but at the same time Qiqi's been pretty neglected in terms of plot relevance. I do hope she gets something one day.

I agree about Venti's story anon. I think that was the only time they made us do a quest about an npc without forgetting that they need to tell the playable character's story.

Otherwise we get no lore on story quests because it's all in the past.

I really wish they fixed Venti's aiming problems.

Honkai's entire purpose is first and foremost putting the staff's self inserts and waifus/husbandos in a game and that's it. It's like a really self-indulging fan fiction that has a battle system built around it. People can talk shit about Genshin all they want but the fact is that compared to the Honkai series it's more player oriented and had explosive popularity that far surpassed Honkai at its launch. Past the honeymoon phase of looking at new sparkly husbandos people just didn't really keep up with HSR and either went back to Genshin or found something else, because like said Sampo being the most interesting one says a lot about the game's overall tone. The male characters look copy and pasted and don't have a personality to them, it's like Genshin's female character syndrome but for males. I don't even see any popular HSR fujo ships because nobody finds the male characters that interesting, not fujos nor yumes nor anyone in between. Maybe male players who self-insert since some of them are even given canonical love interests.

I'm liking her design more the more I think about it too. I had the impression she was going to be overly serious as the judge but the new info we have on her in game made me think she's going to be more unpredictable and energetic type, not physically but mentally if that makes sense. So I think this design is definitely fitting for my impression of her so far. I really really really hope they write her as a strong archon instead of an uwu waifu. If they don't fumble the bag I'll pull for her because she's just gorgeous and her personality has so much potential to just be my type.

I've been reading some leaks here and there and all say that Lyney and Lynette are two different character, not two in one, which is duh I guess but would've been cool if each took care of something as one character

I also find that to be so weird. Lyney is a 5 star pyro bow and Lynette a 4 star (think anemo was her leaked element?) So that alone indicates that they are separate.

At some point there were rumors going around that Lynette is a puppet created by Lyney which would make sense for them to be shown together in the chapter teaser.

It's weird because Diluc, Ningguang and Ayaka's splash art in the preview is the same as their current one and they were released as they were advertised, Cyno got an art change but still by himself but these two pose's look like splash art… like the rest?

I think if the constant hostile reactions to anyone using female characters, good or not, or anything regarding waifus, husbandos and shipping will end up killing this thread and only leaving like a couple of anons remaining. Which sucks

That aside; we're not gonna get much hydro characters in Fountaine, are we? I'm dying to know what Fol's abilities are and if she works as a sub dps, I need a second Xingqiu-like character that isn't Yelan so bad.

Ayato's burst is already like that, although it doesn't heal, but it does provide a NA buff.
Why do you think we won't get more Hydro characters during Fontaine? I think I saw a leak that said the leaked loli was Hydro. Lyney's sister too, although there are some people that speculate she may be Anemo. It's not very clear.

I didn't mean to be mean to the yoimiya anon. It just seemed kinda doomposting to already say that he will be unnecessary because ganyu and yoimiya exists even tho we dont know his kit and you can use other characters than ganyu for melt.
I think i saw a leak that Folcalor her kit will buff your team but drain your health, it was a very old leak tho so im not sure if its reliable. It would be nice if she could apply hydro off field but not as fast as xq so i can use her for quick bloom.

No. 301779

>>301518
>>301756
I was going off kit leaks that said he was going to be a charged shot Pyro bow and play kind of like Ganyu or Tighnari. The problem with that kind of playstyle for Pyro is right now there's no Hydro characters that apply Hydro off of charged shots, so with the current roster he'd be hardlocked to Melt comps. Kaeya would suck for that kind of comp because Kaeya's rings are too close-ranged for comfort, Kaeya is a lot better for melee-ranged Melt. Rosaria would admittedly be okay, though not as good as Ganyu or Layla for long-ranged Melts unless the enemies are slow and stay near the Rosaria ice field. It's not a Lyney problem specifically, it's a Pyro synergy problem.
If you want him go for him, I think he's one of those units that will get better once there's more characters with offield effects that work with charged shots. If Focalors for instance applies Hydro with charged shots that'll be really good for him.
>>301598
We're getting at least three more Hydro characters in Fontaine: Neuvilette, Focalors, and the loli. Lynette is either Hydro or Anemo, the leaks have been contradictory.

Mona and Kokomi, and if you have Kazuha you can use his burst for additional hydro application (you can also use other anemo characters but Kazuha is just insanely good).
>Kaeya would suck for that kind of comp because Kaeya's rings are too close-ranged for comfort
You mentioned in your post Ganyu melt, her best team is literally Bennet Zhongli and xl. xl a character who also has a ring that has a close range (yes it's range goes a bit further away then Kaeya but its a small amount which is why she's also being used with melee ranged characters). Most enemies will teleport to you anyway. Have you tried using Ganyu or Tignari this abyss? It's a waiste of time to try and keep running away and shoot at a distance.
Also I don't see the point in wanting Focalors to apply hyrdro on charged shot, as example Kokomi and Mona why not just have her apply hyrdro offield?
Anyway for me there is no point right now in "theorising" if people should pull on him or what team he works best with because we know so little about his kit.

yoimiya isn't even that good of a pyro dps, i don't hate her or anything but from a meta pov lyney has a chance to be much better. obviously if you prefer your yoimiya no one is gonna force you to roll for him. i personally hate her playstyle and i don't have any other pyro dps so for me lyney might be great.
neuvilette on the other hand doesn't seem very appealing for three reasons 1.his design isn't doing it for me at all 2.i already have ayato and childe who i love much more 3.it's very unlikely he'll be better than yelan from a meta pov. i wouldn't be surprised if he's dps since focalors will obviously be a support. i'm a husbando collector first and foremost however neither neuvilette nor wriothesley are up my alley… it's a weird situation. i feel like the male character designs used to be more attractive when the game was released

No. 301858

>>301856
samefag i just checked the different between range with Kaeya and xl ult and her "outer part" of the ult has same range as Kaeya. So yeah i guess you can argue that xl does have a longer range which might help a bit, but like i said with this abyss you really dont even care about getting out of range.

>>301857
I don't like Neuvilette because he is another male character who is completely covered from head to toe. I'm only looking forward for Wriothesley because he is supposedly cryo.
>very unlikely he'll be better than yelan from a meta pov
Both Yelan and XQ, if this abyss showed me anything it was how nice it is to have a shield or something that helps with stagger. XQ is such an OP character, I feel like he's even better then Bennet and XL because those 2 are almost always in a package.

No. 302715

i cannot get back into genshin after a long break and it’s making me sad. i have taken other breaks in the last and i’ve been able to get back into it easily, but i genuinely can’t care anymore. genshin has been my comfort game for two and a half years now and i think i spent like 100$ on it (might not be much to others but it’s a lot for me) but i think i’m over it. there are way too many materials/bosses/domains to keep up with, getting a new character is more dreadful than fun. exploration and the lore feels repetitive and i never really cared about abyss. i have 0 anticipation for fontaine. idk why I’m typing all this, i just wish i could reignite my love for this game.

No. 302721

>>302715
Nona I feel the exact same way, I used to play daily since it came out and I spent at least 150$ on it but then I just stopped logging in one day in march and haven't felt like going back. At that point I was already barely playing, only doing dailies and speedrunning events which became very exhausting with all the quests I couldn't care for and how long it takes to skip through dialogue. But I'm just waiting for a break from classes so I can try to get back into it, in my opinion you can only have fun with Genshin if you really spend some hours playing through content without having to cut it off after only 1 or 2. I had fun when exploring the desert and I had fun doing the Aranara quests but both those times I was glued to the pc for 4 - 5 hours every day, just like when I first started. Maybe if you stop engaging with any genshin stuff and then try Fontaine without spoilers it can be enjoyable again. I really don't think games were ever meant to be stretched out like this while still making you play them daily, there's no way it won't become a chore especially with the amount of grinding and farming they want you to do

it's okay anon, I know how you feel. I was a day one player, and I quit during the last summer event. my interest had been fading for a long time prior but that event made me realize core problems the game has, how they've only gotten worse over time, and that playing further would be a waste of my time. it's best to move on and pick up a new game that sparks joy, this isn't the type of game that stays fresh for long. it's sad but once the novelty wears off that spark never comes back, trying to force yourself back into it will only remind you why you left.

No. 302810

>>302725
Nta but that's so true. I think the spark gets lost so easily because Genshin just stops stops giving you any feeling of progression at some point. In the beginning you go through ranks relatively quickly, it feels rewarding and leveling characters is fun and you do it gradually. Later it's just spending a certain amount of pulls, getting that character to 80 or 90 immediately if you prefarmed and then the joy of getting something new is basically over. No need to even figure out skills or teams on your own, you can just watch a guide and basically calculate your damage and that's it. But you also can't really keep characters at a low level because anything would oneshot them and that's also no fun. There's just never anything new anymore and all the questlines are predictable and too drawn-out because they have terrible writing and artificially extend scenes with needless breaks

I stopped playing in 3.6 after playing almost everyday since 2.0. I think it’s normal to feel bored of a game after such a long time. I’ve literally been playing 478 hours according to my ps5. The desert exploration wasn’t my thing, they totally fucked up the epic potential of revealing Kaeya as a royal of Khaenri’ah when he met Dain. The Dainsleif quest ended so abruptly too. So it left a bad aftertaste and I just took a break. It’s not a bad thing though right? I’ll come back in 4.0 like many anons will, and the thread will be alive again.

We got more Wriothsley art too. The jacket being off the arm on one side is… Weird, I'm hoping that's just a quirk of concept art showing what his shirt looks like under the jacket. He's ridiculously edgy looking but I love edgy looking men and he's a cryo polearm user, apparently. I hope he's at least on Tighnari level of good, it'll be so disappointing if he's Dehya-tier.

Looks like they are/were? thinking about making Pierro playable? Maybe that's why they are/were making concepts for a new 3D model.
I guess it was going to happen eventually, no way in hell characters like Capitano or Varka were going to be twinks.
Still, I feel like they proportions of the new model are a bit off? Idk, I hope they look good and sexy and not like male-fantasy gigachads or whatever.

Nobody can convince me that they don't have "terrible security" on purpose. Leaks are very popular, they create a lot of hype and make people interested in the game when they seem to get bored.

All Skirks (Childe's teacher). The only one I find objectively awful with no redeeming qualities is the purple one. The Abyss ones are the best, though the left isn't bad either. The red ones have interesting design elements but they look pretty overtly Fatui imo. If I didn't know they were Skirk I'd think they were playable/past Signora concept art.

So far none of these Fontaine characters are tempting me to wish for them design wise, not even the guys sadly.

Awful. All of them. It’s freaking Skirk, she has spent the most time fighting in the abyss. The abyss that traumatized both Childe and Scara. A fearless jaded fighter.

>>303299
I think they’re really fun designs, a bit like Pokémon gijinkas kek. Most of them won’t be finalized probably. The male characters look cute but most of the boys are definitely obvious 4-stars unfortunately. Looks like we really are getting 2-3 tall males in Fontaine.

Alright so here is a compiled pic of our male characters in 4.0-4.8 that look the most complete and/or have been mentioned in story leaks (making them confirmed as actual characters in-game).

These all make me want to die. In fact, this image was the final nail in the coffin of any remaining interest I had in Genshin that I hoped to rekindle by scrolling through the leaks in this thread. I'm tired of them scrapping fantastic designs in favour of thigh-highs, tights, tiny little skirts, and stupid ass colour bashing coomer bait. Do you have any idea how much tension Childe fans have been building up around Skirk for the past three years just to end up with. WITH THAT?? AND I can't believe they scrapped such a nice, symmetrical, somewhat clean looking and handsome sampo-clone for that janky ass ABOMINATION. Who finds either of these designs attractive, let alone tolerable on the eyes?? Hoyoverse just keeps fucking everyone over and I'm tired of it.

But in all honesty I (personally) never put that much faith or hope in a waifu collector game story or character wise even though sometimes they might hint they can do nice things it's best to keep your expectations low so you won't be disappointed and just play casually.

Tbh I thought he was ugly at first but I'm so curious to find out more about the Sampo clone now, I might even redownload Genshin for him. I've even wanted to play hsr because of him but the gameplay and story was so boring that I had to stop, so I'm glad there's going to be a replacement kek I love the small details on his design so far. It's sad that they won't ever put any male character into slutty outfits, but it's also to be expected when people eat it up anyway for some reason. Always pathetic when anyone lusts after some guy in full suit and goes crazy over bare ankles or whatever, I want him collared and on his knees

I'm sure the 3D modelers have a say and they all seemed to be males based on the Yun Jin video. Several of the 2D character designers were women, so make of that what you will.
I disagree with the Wriothesly hate though. I like the current design. I like his grey hair bits and the fur. I don't like the off the shoulder thing in the concept we first got but hopefully they got rid of it, it's not in this 2D design. Could he be broader? Yeah. But it doesn't seem like they're done making the bulkier male model yet.

I guess that explains it. I'm so mad that basically all Genshin designs have that parted coat/skirt etc. in the back but with the female designs they still manage to show her entire ass, it's not fair.

>all Genshin designs have that parted coat/skirt etc. in the back but with the female designs they still manage to show her entire ass, it's not fair.
Yeees look at what they did to my boy Lyney! In the splash art his cape doesn’t cover his ass but in the 3d model concept art he has that ugly ass penguin split covering his ass. Meanwhile characters like Kuki has her ass on display with no other design element.

As an ex-Honkai player I can verify that 80% of all female character designs in Genshin can be traced back to a Valkyrie. Like I know Teyvat is SUPPOSED to be a bubble universe AU of Honkai but it's so lazy how like… 3 different girls can be traced back to Durandal for example

4.0-4.2 then all women would mean the only men in Fontaine were Lyney and Wriothesley. We still have Neuvilette, the Lion Boy (probably at Lantern Rite), and the musketeer after that, so while the 4*s may all be women except for Freminet and Dahlia we'll more than likely be getting a few men too.

Thoughts about Fontaine city's design from the livestream teaser? Did it meet your expectations/what you imagined?

I really thought they were going for a steampunk goth carnival aesthetic like pic rel, especially because Fischl's gothic mirage was so well designed.

No. 304685

>>304642
I'm honestly so fucking glad that they didn't take the steampunk route because that aesthetic has forever been tainted by the early 2010's artsy hipsters who thought it was the quirkiest and coolest thing ever. It's so predictable and been done to death in the recent entertainment history that I've developed a traumatic response to seeing goggles paired with a top hat, I sighed in relief when I saw the teasers portraying Fontaine as more of a sophisticated city.

yeah I get the steampunk aversion with the big ass goggles (although Bennett has them already), but the super sophisticated bright clean city just feels overdone after Sumeru.

Sumeru wasn't like that at all though, it had market places and a bazaar reminiscent of middle east/India and was filled with small huts wrapped around a giant tree with the academia being the only more grandiose building around which makes sense. Mondstadt had a cozy cottagecore Bavarian theme so Fontaine looks different to that as well with the high-tech city vibe. I would've been so disappointed they went with a generic steampunk region with some ~creepy goffik circus aesthetic~ because it would've been way out of place in Teyvat and overplayed to death anyway. Fontaine had always been foreshadowed as the region of advanced technology and water streams so I don't know why people are so disappointed.

I'm fine with it because I think they're setting up for class warfare between the richies and the poors. The upper city being clean, pristine, and patrolled by robot enforcers makes sense to me – provided they have a good grungy lower city or underground to contrast against. Other bits in the game have remarked upon Fontaine's increasing pollution problems, so that must be somewhere yet to be seen in the trailer. It did remind me a bit too much of how some of the pokemon games look though, especially the silly dogs and the way the buildings look.
>>304284
>then they pull shit like pairing kaveh with fucking nilou…
Doesn't seem to have mattered very much to female fans considering the LARGE quantity of solo kaveh suit art and kaveh+alhaitham suit art I've seen. I think Mihoyo made the right decision here. Nilou and Kaveh make a cute friend-pair. I haven't personally seen any meltdowns from fans elsewhere about "forcing a ship".

I genuinely don't get Genshin devs or how their brain works. How the fuck did any of the testers or creators played it and said 'yeah this is fun!'? Just changing the character thing counts as a turn change unless you use a card which good luck if you haven't drew that is???

Devs can't cope with the project they spent time on developing and getting pretty animated illustrations is shit and very very few like it.

You can have all male teams. Just the beginning would be hard because you'll have 2 males (MC and Kaeya) in a team of 4 (you could use just them but some puzzles require other elements and shit) but by the time you start building characters you'll have more and having meta characters doesn't matter unless you're pushing real hard for the hardest content of the game (which, I've seen people even clear with solo characters, granted they were whales) If you search for team building content on youtube etc though, people act like you have every meta character so it might become frustrating. If you're into learning and experimenting with game mechanics it won't be a problem though. The story has some waifu moments but it's mostly in character quests you can leave auto playing in the bg (or don't do at all until another quest requires it done)

Chongyun's playstyle is very 1.0 and thus depressingly dated, Freminet is most likely going to have an unique kit that works with the current roster. We'll just have to wait and see how he plays but seeing how he's going to be in Lyney's banner it probably has something to do with his kit.

Not if you want to clear Abyss with full stars.
If you don't care about Abyss then yes, you can focus on only male teams and you will be fine. I myself have a few only male teams that clear non-Abyss content pretty easily (bosses, exploration, overworld quests, etc.). What's nice about Genshin is that you can turn any character you want into a DPS using certain characters, artifacts, and weapons. It's a pretty versatile game.

No. 306403

>>306394
you can use male only teams but you might be cucked out of giving them the best possible supports. we don't have any male electro supports for instance so dendro reaction based teams will be a problem. anemo dps like xiao and wanderer needs faruzan. however if you're a whale you can just C6 your husbando and clear everything
there's geo team with itto, zhongli, albedo and gorou which works perfectly fine but childe national requires xiangling, and alhaitham hyperbloom requires kuki. tighnari requires yae, cyno requires an electro battery. ayato, xingqiu, bennett, kaeya, baizhu, zhongli, albedo and kazuha are very versatile in general. you can do many different comps, but it probably won't be the most ultimate meta

Only the hardest content is locked behind meta and a lot of the husbandos are meta, like Alhaitham and Kazuha. You might be waiting a while for them to rerun but it's very possible.
Abyss is a biweekly hard mode that gives a bunch of rewards, but as long as you're okay with missing primogems and some achievements you can ignore it.

Xiao was doing just fine before Faruzan. They don't need her unless you push for absolute meta. Most DPS are pretty flexible with supports and subdpses. I gave up trying to use her and my Wanderer still hits like a truck. Xiao always has been. A support being tailor made for a certain character or two doesn't mean those characters actually need that support, I need this idea that all teams have to do the best of the best to die out asap.

Abyss has 4 floors (9 flor to 12 floor) that reset every 14-15 days.
Clearing it gives you 600 primogems (around 3 pulls)(150 primos for every floor you complete with 9 stars), granted you clear it with 36* stars. Each floor has 3 levels and each level has two sides. You need to complete the levels in a certain amount of time to get 3 stars on that level.
As you can see, the rewards are not that great. Most people don't even bother.
Floors 9 and 10 are a joke, and the enemy lineup won't change during the whole 4.X update.
Floor 11 can be hard for newbies. I always do that floor with full stars and all-male teams.
Floor 12 is a fucking nightmare. I only clear it so it shows in my profile, but I barely get any stars lately. Only 3 out of 9, at most.

Yes, please, the metafag min-maxxing culture is so annoying. Just play whatever the hell you want, however you want.
Btw, now that we are talking about meta and all that, I want to ask a question. How the hell do Bloom teams work? From what I understand, the characters that deal Bloom damage are the hydro characters right? So if I want to make a Bloom team for Kaveh, does he need that much EM?? Or it's better to go for a crit build?

In Kaveh teams Kaveh is detonating the blooms, so he needs a lot of EM. In Nilou teams you're using Kokomi or Nahida to both make and destroy the blooms so they need the EM (because Nilou makes the blooms autodetonate vs Kaveh using a skill to detonate them early).
Bloom damage doesn't scale off of crit unless you have C2 Nilou and/or C2 Nahida, and in those cases the crit rate and damage is capped anyways. So building crit for bloom is pointless. EM is the way.

Gacha games are designed to be played like 30 minutes a day max, do dailies and play events. Do a quest now and then, try out new strategies when you feel like it.

If you didn't care you wouldn't have to repeatedly announce that you don't care but they're wrong and it's the best game ever made but you don't care with a follow up samefag post.

Genshin's playerbase has been on the downtrend since Sumeru dropped and so far Fontaine is drawing less hype than it initially did.

Genshin is naturally not as hyped because people who've been playing it for a couple of years got burned out or maybe found other games w/e after all games are supposed to serve as entertainment but it's the doomer attitude that got my attention.

I once said her having an actual unhinged personality would be so interesting and an anon or two agreed back then. I think most women that don't hate every female character on sight will like her if they build her character and story right. We don't know how any of the new characters will be, you're just conditioning yourself to dislike her and you'll find the smallest details to have a tantrum over in every character if you want to find something to hate so badly. There's a whole update before we even meet her or any character that has something to say about her. It's really weird that you think you know enough about her to "despise" her. It's maddening that the thread gets unhinged doomposting the moment a female character is announced.

The same stuff as the other anons who quit up thread and millions(?) of others. I didn't have to unfollow any fanartists when I quit because they beat me to it. I still won't hide the thread because I like to be negative in the spirit of lolcor. Samefagchan who accuses every naysayer of being a conspiratorial hater from /v/ is nutty, it's worth it for their freak outs alone. Genshin could turn into a waifu only porn game and they'd still be in here rapid firing replies that say it's still the best gacha only an incel /v/irgin could hate.

Okay so i checked out the kit leaks. Freminet is an on field dps for shatter and pshysical. A pretty original 4-stat kit, which might mean that Wriothesley who is cryo will get the 5-star version of it. Lynette consumes HP too like Lyney, seems to be a thing now. Hydro traveler also has the HP drain. Lynette has a sub-dps role. Her burst infuses itself. Not tailored for Lyney but could work together nonetheless.

The new event is super cute! Klee is more mature about talking out of worry than grown adults because of the positive influence adults around her have on her and it was really sweet to see her affect others in a positive way. When Kaeya scolded the brothers because their fighting made Klee sad I was smiling like an idiot, he's such a good big brother. It just reminds me of how much Mondo feels like home. About Collei, I don't like that they're making her want to fill in Tighnari's and Amber's roles again, after she had a whole arc coming over it in the Windblume event. Did they forget? Will she forever be the young sister trying to copy others instead of finding her own path like she decided to in the previous event? Anyway, we'll likely have these carts in Fontaine, right? They're so fun and to be honest playing around with them after several updates of deserts made me excited about exploration in this game again.

This is what bugs me so much about Klee to be honest, she's old enough to be given bombs and be included in the knights but she genuinely acts like a retarded toddler having no comprehension at all what's happening around her.

There's a middle ground between "barely conscious toddler" and "teenager", like Yaoyao or Diona didn't have to be like that despite being children and having obvious childlike traits. Klee's baby talk is annoying and sounds more like an anthropomorphic mascot than a child, constantly running after her while she does braindead shit already got old during the first summer event and didn't get any better during the umpteenth time they used this shtick in the other events' plotlines.

I have to agree with the anons who like the event. Also, is it just me or has the writing in Genshin gotten way better in 3.0? The events have been much more enjoyable, the characters feel more relatable and I'm actually interested in the archon stories and world quests too. Maybe it was a blessing in disguise when the original writing team fucked off during Inazuma. I'm actually developing high hopes for Fontaine because the Sumeru chapter was such an improvement over the previous ones.

They took their time with Sumeru's Archon quest and made it good. Inazuma's sucked because it was so rushed and a bunch of the story quests had to flesh it out afterwards. Nahida's second story quest kind of sucked but there's been worse. I think the others were pretty decent.

In case the YouTube video gets deleted I’m posting a backup Reddit link: https://www.reddit.com/r/Genshin_Impact_Leaks/comments/14ru8oa/lyney_gameplay_via_dim/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=ioscss&utm_content=1&utm_term=1

New party selection screen. Each character has a new unique animation when they join.

Omg anon thank you so much for the leaks Lyney looks so fucking cool they put so much work into him!
I was going to skip and get him later but fuck that I'm getting him first thing I open the game.
Also nice that Lynette can have Yelan's run
And Hydro traveller's burst is great and I hope cons up the duration.
Also anyone got the banner timeline for 4.0+? I heard Yelan, Tarta and Raiden will be in 4.0 but idk if that's confirmed or not
Probably too early to ask but that Lyney gameplay got me really excited for Fontaine

wtf, i did notice the character trials had the same characters, but i didn't realize Razor and Mika's teams were literally the same, lol.
>Also anyone got the banner timeline for 4.0+?
As far as I know, no Raiden, the archon that will rerun in 4.0 is Zhongli. A lot of leakers support this (like keika). So Lyney + Yelan, then Childe + Zhongli.
4.1 will have Wriothesley, and one leaker said Neuvillette too? Idk. As for reruns, some people say Venti will rerun during 4.1, others say Raiden. Reruns are difficult to predict.

Also, pulling Fontaine characters are a must for floor 12 bosses because of the pneuma and ousia factions which different Fontaine characters are a part of based on their visions. and colors during their animations.

My pleasure anon! I’m also super happy with Lyney! I have no info on the rerun banners although Childe has been repeated by many leakers.

Right kek, it’s such a weird/fun idle!

Samefagging, let me elaborate. Pic related, the abyss has pneuma enemies which becomes paralyzed by only ousia. Only Lynette is ousia and is given as a free character in 4.0. Hopefully pneuma can still be defeated normally and ousia isn’t a must. Or else I don’t see how Lyney who is pneuma will be useful in floor 12?

Mfw these two's banner is in the same patch. But I still won't whale and only buy Welkin once in a while, nice try hoyo!
Focalors is definitely on 4.2 so probably these guys won't see much sales like every patch before an Archon's appearance, sadly.

>>306889
That's a nice concept but I don't think you only need specific characters to beat said enemies, otherwise players will rage even harder after the bullshit that is current abyss… right?

anemo. so she can expand/ssend her music and voice through wind. but electro would be an obvious choice if she has fontaine or even sumeru-related technologies for her idol activities.
