I'm shamelessly electro-charged #1 fan and it'd be awesome to have Beidou there. Though I'm guessing they'll either show his freezing ability or hyperbloom with Fischl.

Yeah especially whenever anons dump fanart there's usually a handful of the art that several anons praise which should be an indication of using that as the thread pic.

I think a way to solve this for the next thread is to do the classic cow board “voting” method. When the thread is about to be locked anons tag the art from the thread that they would like to be the next thread pic. The most seconded one is the democratic choice.

>shilling wrio with the loli
Ever since an anon in the prev thread pointed out that husbandos are only ever paired with little girls my soul has not known peace. I choose to see it as wholesome and pray to the higher powers I won't see any gross art/interpretations of them cause Wrio IS NOT A PEDO SCROTE.

No. 323662

Lyney's passive will be handy af.

That anon is retarded. No one complains when Kaeya and Klee are posted because we all know Kaeya is being her cool big bro and it's cute when guys take care of kids.
But when Wrio is posted with Seigwennie or whatever her name is it's meant to have negative connotations? Pft.

No. 323663

The discussion wasn't about the men being made into pedos but instead watering down their character by giving them the boring gap moe of looking after a little girl. However all signs point to Siegwinne having adult intelligence and her being associated with Wrio only as the head nurse of the prison, not as some little girl he takes care of like is the case with Albedo and Klee or Baizhu and Qiqi.

She's at least partially a melusine, hence the short stature. Some of the other melusine in the city speak nicely of her and refer to her as if she's a fellow melusine, including talking about how she invites some of the melusine to the prison infirmary to enjoy tea with her. She hosts skincare lectures in Fontaine according to some of the billboard posts. So, along with her being head nurse of the prison, it's difficult to view her as a child. There's no way Wriothesley would be letting her work alongside dangerous criminals if she were, after reading his lines about his own childhood.

Trial-wise I wasn't impressed mostly to him being more or less pure dps than a little more flexible in roles, but when I tried him I really wanted to check something for no good reason other than I'm AR60; when you use the changed skill where he floats at a cliff, does he fly sky high until the skill ends?

If you're the same Sigewinne anon than you need relax and take a break from the screen. Wriothesly is a fictional character and can be whatever you want him to be lmao

I have a stupid theory but: Wriothesly was received well by moids >> moids project onto him >> moids now can fuck their waifu through him in fanart and things.

Please tell me you're not talking about the small "do you want sugar with your tea" conversation. You cannot actually think that qualifies as flirting.

The writing is so good right now, I can't believe how much they improved from Inazuma. It's like they threw the original staff out and got some actually good and invested writers into the game to fix what's left. In Inazuma I hated almost every character or found them boring at best but both Sumeru and Fontaine have had me at the edge of my seat awaiting what's next and wanting to learn more about every single character in the story. I was expecting to hate Sigewinne but I ended up finding her cute, even Clorinde was really cool despite having the ugliest design in the game.

Adorable and the best of both worlds, but shame it means they probably won't ever make her a skin because it would be twice the work.
The change from two-part Archon quests to three-part archon quests has massively improved the writing. They can afford to slow down and give the characters time to shine. Inazuma felt like they were cramming what should have been a much longer story into an hour of gameplay, it was a mess.

No. 324022

Nta and I haven't seen the scene with Clorinde yet but Alhaitham and Kaveh had constant banter, they live together and have a relationship that goes way back and yet you could play the game and come out not shipping them. So many genshin players have terminal fandom brainrot and the writing doesn't offer much, so any small gesture or sentence between two characters is immediately seen as shipbait. It's exhausting. You don't have to get so pissed off just because your husbando talked to a female character for a bit. Clorinde already has way more of a connection to Navia and Wriothesley is mostly shipped with Neuvillette, so relax jfc

It's probably the same lunatic who was having a meltdown about "Mihoyo shilling Kaveh/Nilou" because they were featured in that gigo collab. I'm surprised the oneeshota sperg hasn't appeared to tinfoil about Clorinde saving Freminet being Mihoyo shilling pedophilia.

Also Wriothesley is very likable, love his voice and his character but Sigwinne is very unlikeable. I don't mind the child characters as much as nonnies here but she was shrieking and sounded like a burikko in Japanese dub, like she was putting on a fake cute act. I expected to like her a bit more.
Wrio is more likable than I expected though so he makes up for it.

Anyone knows the context to why Itto's apologizing to Gorou in picrel?

I thought anons itt hated female characters for having zero personality and have coom designs, but no, it's closer to the early 2k fujo "g-girls with girls! So my men can fuck each other 24/7 without a filthy woman being there!" Vibe. Like I get this is Genshin Impact but even to the point that male characters can't interact with female ones without rage is just hilarious.

She apologized last thread(?) for being obnoxious and said she was jealous of the girls shipped with boys and now she's doing better. the only reason I remember because of cute Haikaveh pic

No. 324075

Nta and I am not one of these who complained because I'm not there story-wise yet but honestly I wouldn't mind Wrio flirting with a woman but pls no Clorinde, I hate her design with a burning passion. I know they just talk and there was no shipbait so it's irrelevant, just saying that I wouldn't mind girl/guy ship, I just fricking hate Clorinde the Walking Boobs.

No. 324097

Unrelated but I've been in love with her design since anons called her hair greasy back when she was first leaked. In my mind she's an introverted femcel that can't be bothered to buy new clothes that fit her and I could take her shopping and fix her kek

No. 324101

What are you even talking about, it's pretty obvious they're husbandofags who will flip if they talked to female characters OR were implied to be romantically involved male characters. Male characters less so because they're not competition. Fujos don't give a shit because they ignore canon anyway, it wasn't them who tried to send Chinese authorities after Mihoyo because Kaveh was too close to Alhaitham and they called him a green tea bitch kek.

I thought it was only teenagers who did this sort of thing but apparently not. Tiresome. Again, I truly feel bad for Mihoyo's writers trying to navigate around how deranged the fandom can be overall when it comes to character interactions with each other. It must feel extremely limiting as a creative writer to have to walk on eggshells when it comes to character interactions, trying to make the world feel more alive and fleshing out the cast dynamics without stepping on too many toes.

Aside from that, I'm loving Sigewinne. She's very amusing to me. I like that she's kind of conniving and how she thinks humans are just so cute to observe, like little pets.
>I like smart people, but I also like playing dumb. I like the feeling of "being trusted."
I'm hoping they will explain in her character story why she looks so much more human than the other melusine. I can't tell how much the game wants us to ignore that or not, like that one Kimodameshi event in Inazuma with the kid NPCs wearing yokai masks that we were supposed to pretend looked like genuine yokai because they were too lazy to make new yokai NPCs.
Also, her line about thinking the traveler is cute is funny to me too. The game tells you multiple times how the melusine perceive things pretty differently to humans, like the melusine quest line with the paintings, how they can see destruction as beauty. So, was that actually a back-handed compliment to the traveler? Lol.
I can't tell whether they'll make her a 4 or a 5, but I hope I'll be able to get her whenever she releases.

Why blame fujos on this when it's lumine self insert tards who care? The real problem lies with the two female characters being a lolibaba and gross coomshit paired with one of the least gay looking guys in genshin who moids would be happy to use in their own self insert porn.

>are there any news on how Furina's kit is like?
Yes, see picrel or here:
If you want to get more into the weeds of her ICD/poise/hit types, you can look here:
Like usual, things may change as the beta goes on, so it's not set in stone yet. She's looking to be a sub-DPS with buffing capabilities on her burst, reliant on gaining and losing HP to gain stacks. She can change between pneuma/ousia with her CA, which also changes what her skill buddies do (consuming party HP to deal damage vs healing). Her burst DMG% buff ramps over time, somewhat like Yelan's burst buff ramps. For Abyss, recommended to have her primarily off-field at C0, can spend more time on-field at C2 and above.

So… if Cyno jumps around with his burst around the arena will they follow him and apply hydro the enemies he's attacking?

Don't really like how bland/non-character she is but that normal attack looks fun.

I don't even have a problem with people who ship furina and neuvilette even though i see them more as a babysitter and his weak useless kid, it's just that clorinde's design is very off-putting and her interaction with wriothesley was unnecessary and it attracts the worst type of shippers. They literally got more material to work with than neuvilette x wriothesley, which should have been the actual star of this patch and it also makes her dramatic yuribait with navia redundant.

They quieted down during Star Rail's release when they migrated to its thread which was immediately contaminated with similar mental illness but after that game plateaued they returned back here.

That said I want to give credit where credit's due, they've improved massively on writing female characters since Inazuma and given them more plot relevancy and agency. I used to hate all of the female characters and felt like the game was only giving coomer men what they wanted never giving female players a break, but during v4 we got five new male 5-stars out of which Alhaitham is possibly the best DPS in the game at the moment and gave him and Kaveh a star crossed lovers dynamic. Shockingly enough the female characters only got better during Fontaine. I love Furina and Lynette, and I never thought I would say this about a female character in Genshin Impact. Post-Inazuma Genshin is like playing a different game, complete with all the QoL improvements.

I agree. In Inazuma the only female character I liked was Yoimiya and mostly because she was just friendly and inoffensive. I thought I was going to hate Nahida but she has more character than just being a loli and Sumeru was a lot more husbando focused overall. Furina, Lynette, Navia and even Sigewinne are all really interesting and fleshed out. I wish Clorinde had had one of the better concept designs used for her but at least the character isn't offensive so far.
The QoL improvements have done so much for exploration. I'd hate navigating Fontaine without them. They put a lot of effort into making the swimming feel good and I'm going to miss it when Fontaine is done and we move on to Natlan.

I want him but I don't think I'll be able to afford Wrio if I lose 50/50 to him?
In a way I'm both ranting and needing some opinions; get him and hope I win 50/50 with Wrio and ignore Furina or guarantee Wrio, most likely guarantee Furina and wait for his rerun? I really liked both after archon quests.

Furina will come back after 4 patches (4.6). All Archons have reruns often, because they sell well, I think you can skip her tbh.

Agree!! I was vibing hard to the soundtrack kekw. There was a part I actually stopped playing the dialogue and took my time to enjoy and appreciate the ost! It fits so well with the atmosphere, I totally agree. I liked that they added electric guitars to the usual classical instruments.
I do like Sigewinne tho! I think it's endearing she thinks humans are cute creatures, kek. It's like the reverse of us, humans, thinking Melusines are adorable. (?)

I handled the Meropide investigation stuff much better than the endless Samsara bullshit in Sumeru where Nahida wouldn't just tell us what was going on because hurr durr your brain wouldn't accept it despite it being a dream not being all that farfetched or weird when something is clearly wrong. I liked the hints of what was going wrong with Childe. Looks like his Vision breaking has made him vulnerable to Abyssal corruption somehow, the leaks with him being the 4.2 boss seem pretty likely now.
Her pets apply hydro pretty decently. Not as much as Xingqiu and Yelan but more flexible than them since she doesn't need normal attacks to trigger her pets. Her crab in particular does AOE damage rather than single target. Her ult buff is better than Kazuha's shred for teams that have a hard time double-swirling. Not a lot of word on her healing in pneuma form, I think it's around Kokomi jellyfish levels from what I've seen.
tl;dr she's good but depending on the team won't be better than Xingqiu. She's more flexible to use than Xingqiu though and that's where she shines; she's flexible and can slot anywhere.
She will be very very good with Neuvillette for all the Neuvillette pullers.

Just finished the archon quest and I don't get why Clorinde was there? Not as a "reee female character" but as a genuine question. I remember her as a good duelist yet she was there to swim and save the fortress, how?
Wrio can freeze water, I get that so he's useful but she's electro? I saw her shoot the lever to a gate but what's her ability to stop the water after?
Even the swimming aspect, like why her of all people? Even Navia would make more sense since she goes to metro area and would potentially sacrifice herself for Fremmi probably.
Actually wouldn't Clorinde be better fit sitting with Furina in her meeting with Arle? Since she stands beside her in court??

I liked the whole thing and didn't mind her as much as I thought I would minus her shirt that's about to pop but I feel they misused her potential, especially when I'm praying male duelist to be a real thing and her introducing him to traveller or something.

No. 324985

I think they're going for Clorinde being more of a secret agent type of character. She's Furina's bodyguard but she's also probably part of Furina's spy circle trying to devise a way to save the nation from the prophecy. Or she just happens to be someone Wriothesley can trust so he asked her for help. I agree it's kind of silly that she was going to keep back the flood though, it's not like she's a hydro or cyro.
I also wish the male musketeer showed up but given we only got concept art for him and no model leaks if he shows up it's probably going to be very late into Fontaine.

I don't know why I love Arlecchino so much, she's so cool. She's edgy in just the right way. Also, isn't it new that Genshin kind of adds voice acting on top of art put on screen like a visual novel? Or was it in archon quests before this?

Yep honestly she was very bland before. I finished the archon quest and I do have to say sadly Wrio and Clorinde do have better chemistry than a lot of characters that people are convinced are canon ships. You say it's not flirting but Wrio does seem like he's kind of flirting with everyone, or his voice is just like that to me, even when Neuvi passed by and he was like 'wooow, what's your secret'. If only Clorinde was a bit less of a coombait character, I'd probably love her with her deadpan personality and bloodborne look. But from what I've seen scrotes absolutely love her design. If only we had skins to select from, if only her shirt wasn't white but like grey, she'd look so much better to me.
I pray Wrio's character story fleshes out his relationship with Neuvi more because he kept talking about him but they exchanged like two sentences.

The relationship between Wriothesley and Neuvillette is so strange, why do they keep hinting at something while barely showing them together?

And how Wriothesley tries to invite him to stay for tea only to basically get a polite but cold no.

I don't know if it's different in other languages but the English voiceover and script really emphasize Neuvillette's detachment and loneliness from the world and humanity in general. I'm not surprised a character like that isn't very shippable yet. Maybe he'll grow more open as the Fontaine story progresses.

I think they're trying to hint at what will be revealed in Wriothesley's story lines that are available to read through sites like project amber already. When you read his backstory, you find out he killed someone, alluding to perhaps an abusive foster parent of some kind, maybe more than one person, and stating outright that "the people he'd taken vengeance on were villains themselves in the first place". I think it's to just add a little more 'flavor' to how Neuvillette abides to judging by the letter of the law even when it doesn't seem to have allowances for things like killing in self-defense, and how that troubles him. It's not the first time the game tells you about people who get sentenced to punishments that they ought not to have and how it troubles Neuvillete but "the law is the law".

Some things about Neuvillete story quest:
I was kind of suprised there was no dungeon for us to try him in. He's the second character after Albedo that you can't play.
Also it felt like a mini archon quest rather than a story quest. All Fontaine's characters made an appearance, minus Furina and tbh although general lore isn't bad but I wanted more Neuvillete if that makes sense, like not as an OOC date but it felt so… general(?)
Hope Wriothesly's more personal.

I started playing recently and so far it's great! Exploring is a blast and I really enjoy the worldbuilding. In every game I play I like to choose a husbando to yoom over, but Genshin has so many cool guys to choose from that I'm not sure where to start. Which male characters seem most willing to tolerate autism and severe mental illness? Just in your opinion.
>tldr which Genshin guy would make the best tard wrangler?

No. 325398

I'd say most of them, a lot of them aren't human and seem to care about traveler a lot and traveler is basically a non-verbal weirdo kek. But I'll give you my headcanons
Cares for Collei which is a troubled kid, is very kind in general.
Percepts things differently from humans and rants about his monotone interests a lot himself, I feel like he wouldn't care if you were weird
He's very nice to children and gets along with them, he's very goofy all the time and also would probably get along with speds.
>Kazuha and Albedo
Both are very kind but kind of blandly kind (sorry kazuhafags) and I think they'd treat an autist or mentally ill person very well
Same as Zhongli.

Honorable mentions
He's so sweet but not a husbando so he goes in the honorable mentions
He's too weird to notice you're weird.
Probably treats everyone the same
His post-archon quest himself would be nice, his archon-quest himself wouldn't tolerate any bullshit

He strikes me as an autist himself and you know how autist males don't tend to be nice to autistic females kek but as a Alhaithamfag I don't care
He'd bully you
He's too psycho to be nice to an autist kek
Seems to care about being proper too much, severe mental illness doesn't go well with that

You gave so much detail, thank you! It really helps me get a better idea of the characters. Based on your descriptions and what I've played so far, Zhongli intrigues me. He's a "seen it all" type of guy so I'm confident he could handle me. My only worry is that he would be too enlightened and therefore turned off by my pitiful human catastrophizing.
Thank you for the warm welcome! Thoma seems like the most willing to be an active caretaker, so right now he's at the top of the list. He would think of a retard as a stray animal and feel compelled to help me out, and want to make me even the littlest bit happier. And beyond the yoom I really really appreciate his worldview:
>As long as you live, good things will always happen… This is what Thoma has always believed in.
>Even if these animals had not encountered good things before, he hoped that at least his presence would be a good thing worth celebrating for.
Great recommendation nonita ♥
Your succinctness is very funny. Though none of them are husbando material, my fave category are the ones who don't even realise I'm retarded. It's just a funny thought. Also I'm glad everyone agrees that Scara would bully any retard he happened upon.
>would make you embarass yourself
I also enjoy being tormented so maybe I could have one of these guys as a sidepiece. That would create a satisfying hurt/comfort cycle as well as scratch the masochistic/self-pitying itch. Thoma and Ayato are narratively linked, so already an Inazuma-based daydream is beginning to form. I'll be playing that chapter next and I feel more excited about it then ever!
Thank you to everyone who contributed, I'm really thankful that you shared your ideas and that everybody got to laugh together.

No. 325643

They're making some assumptions based off information in his leaked profile lines about the archons, his About the Vision: II and his Feelings About Ascension: Conclusion. He says he's going to judge most of them (in due time) and in Venti's line he refers to the archons as "the unauthorized seven gods"

He's still meta af at C0, don't worry about it. If you're still a beginner at the game and aren't going for 100k Hu Tao vapes it doesn't matter much. Giving him a high refinement sacrificial sword is more important than any of the constellations anyway

Oh okay that makes sense. Any idea why he wants to judge the archons? All I heard him say that was a bit anti-archon in the AQ was that his dragon powers were limited because of Furina being the hydro archon. If she died/stopped being an archon he would regain his powers

No. 325707

Before the Primordial One arrived in Teyvat, the Seven Sovereigns were the rulers of the realm. The Primordial One and the Seven Sovereigns fought for many years, resulting in most of them dying out. The rest fled (like Apep). From the perspective of the Sovereigns, the Primordial One (and subsequently the archons) are usurpers. While Neuvillette is not the original Hydro Sovereign, he is a successor. Thus, from his perspective, the archons are "unauthorized gods" and because he "must remain a symbol of absolute justice", he must judge them..eventually. I don't think his judgement is from a malicious or hateful place, but rather "this is what must be done, this is my duty and the archons do objectively have crimes to answer for".

I swear I'm not trying to bait but I really don't get the hype for Arlecchino, at first when she was revealed during the Fatui trailer last year I was interested in the possibility of a princely female character but they made her wear an overdesigned vacuum sock pantsuit with the most lackluster color design an open back under the coat and a stupid rat tail to top it off, so far her personality has been closer to a world quest villain NPC twirling their moustache than a playable character. And before you come at me I'm not even one of those people who hate all female characters because in contrast I really like Furina's design and writing and how they're edging us on her hiding a plan. Scaramouche was foreshadowed since Inazuma but Arlecchino came out of nowhere, barely made an appearance besides bullying Furina a bit and now everyone is just losing their mind over muh problematic lesbian dommy mommy like they did with Signora. Unless she gets an actual arc in 4.2 I'm just going to assume people are just so desperate for a morally questionable female villain that they accept any crumbs that game devs throw them, maybe someone wants to explain what's her appeal because I was just disappointed beyond belief when they revealed her final design. And no, I don't hate her, I just don't understand why people are declaring her the best character in Fontaine when she's so generic. Maybe I'll be proven wrong.

No. 325985

No. 326013

You could say all of this about any other unreleased Harbinger. Many people like Arlecchino because she is the first female character who's allowed to be covered up from head to toe without any cringe armpit windows or thigh highs, but the lore around House of Hearth is also really neat. There are hints that she's a wolf in sheeps clothing who's not so secretly very unhinged which obviously also draws in a lot of people. We are only in 4.1 and we are sure to see much more of her so just give it some time to develop if you think she's boring right now.

No. 326026

For me it's because I love Fatuus and how she saved Lynette/twins. So far I hope they expand more on her and other characters and her personally.
As in even though Signora isn't playable but her lore being a witch that wants revenge for her lover, was misunderstood by her people, suppressed her powers…etc. were nice additions even though her design is too coom-ish for my tolerance kek, hope to see the same lore for Arlecchino.

I was surprised to how much I liked it despite Peng's departure, even the battle theme is great with me doing challenges with these 3mil bosses. My only complaint is Wriothesly's theme, I feel it's missing something.

No. 326028

I think the lore around her is really neat (House of Hearth, leaks saying she's a child experiment herself for example) but I guess I'm just so disappointed in how they copped out of making her more masculine/androgynous since the word "knave" refers to a male servant and the kids call her "father". Yeah the titles don't really mean anything but something about those stiletto heels, the attire pronouncing her curves and the fandom cooming to hypersexualized pinups of her rubs me the wrong way.

No. 326029

I like it, it's different from Peng's style but still works imo. I've found myself actually listening to the tunes when before they sort of drowned in to the background, they nailed the European sound really well and I say this as an euro myself. I liked the gritty sound in Meropide, very different from the other music, but >>326026 is right about Wriothesley's theme needing a bit more edge. But I agree with you on Sumeru having the best soundtrack in the entire game so far. Inazuma was really boring and repetitive, Enkanomiya was just droning ambient music and both Liyue and Mondstadt were just "nice".

Thoughts about the archon quest? To me it was weaker than the last one.

What I liked
>Childe being involved and being the main conflict/dilemma alongside the prophecy. So fun when a past character’s backstory intertwines in a current archon quest. Much better than npc focused conflicts
>the world building of the prison and its system
>every Arlecchino appearance because she’s so fucking cool

What I dislike
>the weird pacing at the prison, the whole first part was me doing meaningless work and eating at a shitty cafeteria with childish paimon commentary
>overall nothing really happened?
>Neuvilette dragon identity reveal should have been more epic and cinematic
>the flashback animations of Childe looking so damn cheap. Is it that hard to make actual animated cutscenes for such a big company instead of the same running and idle animations

On the similar note, I find it pretty weird how characters don't turn properly in cutscenes. At least I think so, or some other movement is missing, but when they stop moving and when they turn somewhere to run, it looks like old pokemon animations. Weird because we have proper running in overworld. I hope someone knows what I'm talking about.

Same, some of the art woth Furina has him looking cute but because of his /spoiler/ he's now drawn with everyone. Though in tag websites you can choose the proper tags to find him by himself.

It wasn't even a cute love story, I didn't need the mental image of that old faggot kissing a young girl or a water monster. I was waiting for Hu Tao to join in and have a big ending to the story at the end, but it just ended abruptly. The actually poem related parts were good but the last part just wasn't it. I hope we learn what happened to Chongyun the way we learned Diona's condition. It's like the writers are allergic to letting the characters progress, all the characters still act the same they always were, we just learn details about shit we already knew.

What do you think of Wrio's trailer? I like his character but to me it was meh. Not very interesting. And that's probably because they spent a lot of time on his design it seems but not a lot on his personality. I wish they'd make him a bit more interesting, imo with his design they had lot to work with. I think if they built on his past of being a criminal and repenting a bit more it would be better. Maybe it'll be in his story but so far he seems kinda mild. Or they should have built his relationship with Neuvi more, character interactions are what makes us understand the character more.
Also I'm almost always liking the characters songs from the version trailers more than their extended versions.

I wish they'd stop with using the generic boring npcs so much.

No. 327493

What killed me was the abrupt ending, aside from the weird… bestiality? I don't know what to make of that kek.
Many many decisions made me go "huh?!" Several times like Zhongli popping for no reason, Xiao popping for no reason and was this the shortest event dialogue-wise? I remember Mondstadt's Collei and Sucrose's one, it had alot of dialogue and I liked learning more about characters, why is this one so short and weird?
One postive thing is the illustrated movie thing, I like the style.

I feel the same way, hope his story and profile make him more interesting.

The event was kinda mid for being an anniversary event. I liked better the first and second anniversary events, this one is just boring.
>It's like the writers are allergic to letting the characters progress.
Since the second Golden Archipelago event, I have noticed mihoyo is listening to the casual players screeching about lore and characters being developed in events. I will never forget 2.8 update, it was one of the best events ever and it gave a lot of depth to Mona, Fischl, Kazuha and Xinyan. I'm glad I was there, kek.

>What do you think of Wrio's trailer? I like his character but to me it was meh.
The trailer was just fanservice for the simps. And I'm grateful for that, kekw.
I love his personality a lot, he is perfect in my eyes. I like that he seems cold and aloof but he is actually playful and sometimes can be a total dumbass. I can wait to play his archon quest and also unlock his voicelines.

I just think his personality is a bit meh like you said. It transferred into the trailer. There's not much that makes him unique. But I have hope, some characters like Cyno turn out to be completely different after the archon quest and Alhaitham became more than just “smart” when his relationship to Kaveh was developed more in depth. So I bet Wrio will get more multifaceted too with time.

So nice seeing a well known trusted chinese leaker talk about this. I remember when a waifu banner (forgot which) and a Hu Tao banner had the exact same numbers on Genshin Lab down to the freaking decimals. No way the exact same amount of people pulled a character. It’s inaccurate data that caps at certain numbers and it famously shows male banners as underperforming.

No. 327569

This guy isn't trusted at all. He gets almost all of his original leaks completely wrong, especially the story ones.
Neuvillette didn't perform terribly badly but to act like it's a major accomplishment to be the best selling banner since 3.5 is kind of stupid (and as far as I can tell, Genshinlab says the same thing anyway). IIrc the only new character who got released between 3.5 and 4.0 was Baizhu who really did sell like total shit, and anyone who wanted Lyney had 3 years to save for him. What else were people going to spend their money on between then and now? The Klee/Eula banner kek?
The sales numbers of specific characters clearly don't matter much to Hoyo anyway, we got a ton of limited husbandos this past year while moids only got Nilou a year ago. They know that flooding regions with a majority of male or female characters works because husbando or waifu collectors need to swipe to get all of them. Neuvillette and Wriothesley will most likely be the last limited male characters for a long while because of this. At least Fontaine has stepped up its female characters and there are some promising ones like Arlecchino to tide us over until the next husbando releases in a thousand years.

No? He has a good track record as of late. Almost everything in Sumeru was correct and things he said about lion dance boy turned out to be true when we got the leak flood images

No. 327741

He reposts what he sees other leakers say and makes random shit up that he deletes or "corrects" later when its proven as false. He said that Ayaka's skin is 5 star, Alhaitham is more like Ayaka than Dendro Keqing, Alhaitham is friends with Zhongli and very close to Nahida, and Dehya is a 4 star. He's also the one that threw everyone in a panic by saying everything about Scaramouche changes and he won't be the same person anymore with that retarded ship comparison. I don't think he even has any kind of inside connection, he just hangs out in CN forums all day to see what people are saying.

How do you know Neuvillette didn't perform terribly badly if you don't trust Genshin labs either but at the same time denounce hxg_diluc. So what is your source? Or are you just speaking out of your ass and pretending it's facts. He sold really fucking well, why is that something you want to downplay?

He's a reposter, stop whiteknighting so hard for him.
I'm not downplaying how well Neuvillette sold, I'm just saying that his banner didn't sell on the same level as the actual powerhouse banners. Hxg's weird Tiktok hours and Genshinlab are probably about equally unreliable and statistically they tell the exact same story anyway. I don't really understand what the point with being so obsessed with inaccurate sales numbers is, as I said in my first post Hoyoverse won't change the amount of male characters they release based on how much previous ones sold so who cares

The Genshinlab banner revenue numbers have been really suspicious lately, every banner has been performing like shit since Nahida which makes no sense. According to them Lyney&Yelan barely made a dime which is just preposterous because even if everyone boycotted Lyney they damn sure weren't passing up Yelan since she's a waifu and one of the most sought after units in the game.

Btw I like his playstyle a lot, he is very satisfying and easy to use! I was a little intimidated by his health drain mechanic, but after doing abyss with him I'm starting to learn how it works.

I lost my first 50/50 but won the next one for his C1. I haven't decided whether to go for the weapon or not since I already have Wanderer's weapon but never use Wanderer and Tulaytullah's Remembrance is second-best in slot for him. Furina's going to be the perfect support for both him and Neuvillette so I don't want to have to skip her.
Teams aren't that hard for Wriothesley. You'll probably want another cryo unit and an anemo unit then throw Bennett or a hydro unit in depending on whether whatever you're fighting can be frozen or not.

Metafagging in spoilers I'm regretting pulling Wrio in a gambling addicted haze… why is his damage kinda shit even in a team while Lyney was fucking my ass through the screen at level 1 with no supports? Wrio even has a crit dmg weapon while Lyney has that shitty Ganyu bow. No force on earth can make me pull that woman shaped pillow with a hole named Shenhe. Is Wrio destined to become a national melt enabler?

No. 327997

My c0 Wrio with a 4* weapon does 30k per hit with food buffs which is fine enough for a c0 in my books, maybe you're just building him wrong? He runs off high attack, not elemental damage unlike other catalysts so give him the Marechaussee set. Sure Lyney is a goddamn cannon when it comes to damage dealing but I personally hate the aimed shots playstyle and how squishy he tends to be.

Wait, does that mean he'll do better with an atk% cup instead of cryo dmg?

No. 328014

Most guides are recommending 4pc Marechaussee set for him because it gives a normal&charged attack boost and a 32% crit rate boost when your HP changes, which fits Wrio's HP mechanics. So that's preferred over a 2pc marechaussee and 2pc blizzard set, but if you're lucky enough to get a cryo dmg marechaussee piece then yeah that's definitely useful for him.

It's not. Lyney needs ridiculously high personal damage because he's designed to not work with a lot of the best supports. With Wriothesley you need to make sure you have a healer at C0 to maintain his bonus damage buff. At C1 you don't need a healer anymore and can do whatever as long as you charged attack when your HP is around 60% and you see the red aura around him.
He's going to work really well with Furina, so you should be able to pull for her instead of Shenhe if you're unsatisfied with his current damage. I'd still run a second cryo for cryo resonance, but that's up to you.

He doesn't work with Xingqiu, Fischl, or Yelan, widely considered some of the best supports in the game. Discouraging reactions with him means he needs really high damage himself to compete or he'd be trash compared to Hu Tao, who Vapes. He works with Bennett and Xiangling and Kazuha but a lot of other units want them too.
I'm not saying he's bad, he's not bad by any means because they gave him the insane damage buffs he needed to compete, he's just inflexible compared to a unit like Childe or Raiden (who want all the same teammates as Lyney).

It's just a shame that they've struggled to find a midpoint between the critical lore dumps that get lost forever like the dragonspine events and no character development in quests at all.

Just make two separate teams? They're both meant to be the primary character on-field and don't really work with any other play style. They do both like some of the same supports though, so if you really wanted to you could pair them with any two of Bennet/Kazuha/Zhongli.

Are you asking if you can put Xiao and Lyney on the team? They are both on field characters so that would not be optimal, but if you only care about overworld you could just keep swapping dpses I guess. For Xiao you want to use a healer and/or shielder.

At least with Fontaine, Neuvillette and the Arlecchino plot line with Furina makes it feel like the characters are important to the game’s overall story. Especially with Childe being involved in the story too. It really feels like the game is finally moving forward and we’re taking the steps to understand Celestia/Abyss/Archon powers more.

>Sumeru is irrelevant
>Irminsul tree didn't tell anything new
What are you talking about? The entirety of Teyvat is connected to Irminsul and you can control the collective memory of everyone in the world by editing what's stored in it like Scaramouche and Rukkhadevata did by removing their existence and Traveler is the only person who had their memories preserved, even Nahida and Paimon forgot about them. The biggest revelation in the end of Sumeru chapter was that the traveler's sibling was recorded in the Irminsul database even though it shouldn't be possible due to the limitations specifying that "people from outside of Teyvat are excluded from the records". Both of these were huge plot points. Irminsul is connected to every single domain and Leyline in the game making it in essence the central computer of Teyvat that has two flaws: the data stored in it can be edited and people from the outside aren't recorded in it. The most popular theory is that the reason the Traveler's sibling is recorded is because Teyvat is running in a loop and the traveler's sibling already died once (i.e. "completed their journey"), had this recorded in the Irminsul's database and then started over again. Which would explain a lot of things happening in the game. I sometimes feel like people here just sleep on half of the lore because they autoplay the dialogue and then complain about bad writing.

Jean/Lisa/Bennett/Charlotte and a few others all have pretty normal sounding names. I just assumed that there would be a few normal Chinese names thrown in there too.

Well that’s what I meant with nothing new. Anyone not retarded knew this loop thing by what characters have said. Literally Venti saying "we meet again" to the traveler, we got to know that 2 years ago. They just added the tree as an explanation for it in sumeru, which to me wasn’t enough new info. Lumine being in Teyvat before us and our journey being a loop that we have forgotten is as obvious as Paimon being sketchy.

No. 330782

English names sound exotic without needing to be fancy to non-English speakers. Good example is Terra in Final Fantasy 6 being called Tina in Japan because they thought it made her sound cool and different, but they changed it to Terra in English to keep the same unique vibe. Once you see it, you won't unsee it, characters called Alice and Steve next to Shining Hero and Evil Killman.

No. 330783

Nta but thanks for reminding me about how important Irminsul is. I never thought too hard about twin theories cause I'm just waiting on the story to unfold, but your explanation is an interesting thought. It'd make since if the twin died imo, it'd explain the feeling of hopelessness they give off.

God I hope this time travel plot is not what the writers go with. Superfluous time travel always makes a plot 1000% worse. The writers always fail to think things through and create endless contradictions and everything falls apart with the least bit of scrutiny.
What I immediately thought is that the Traveler's sibling died/was killed and the one we see is a clone made by Rhinedottir. We already know Albedo is made up of the same substance as the Traveler, hinting that he was only able to be made because of the Traveler somehow. We also know that Rhinedottir made a lot more than just Albedo (Durin, Elynas, Dorian, the Riftwolves). If the "sibling" is a clone it would make sense why they're recorded in Irminsul, they were made in Khaenri'ah. It would also make them being the Prince/Princess of Khaenri'ah make sense if they were a symbol of Khaenri'ah's greatest fuck you to the gods, creating life itself.
It's probably a retarded thought too but god I just can't stand time travel plots.

No. 330832

IMO, time loop isn't the same as time traveling though. Taking into regard Scaramouche's old statement of "the sky being fake" I would guess that the current events in Teyvat are happening inside a simulation and the abyss twin is looking for a way to end it in order to escape, and maybe that's also what the Tsaritsa is attempting to do seeing how the Fatui made the Sumeru Academiya conduct that controlled Samsara experiment. As for the possible reason as to why the sibling has been recorded in Irminsul, there have been speculations how when a person dies in Teyvat they get absorbed into Irminsul before being reborn (like what happened to Rukkhadevata), which would indicate towards the sibling dying in the past.

I just finished the event. It ended so awkwardly. I thought there would be at least a grand ending to the poem event like maybe Venti and Hu Tao giving an ending/goodbye poem but we got nothing. I sorta don't mind the mini npc love story line because they did set up the story a long time ago. The only part I find truly enjoyable is the Traveler and Xiao interaction.

Also Sigewinne isn't confirmed, the guy who leaked that has a history of faking leaks in his streams to stop people from taking credit for his leaks.
As for a credible leak, we have concept art for a new area releasing in 4.6. So we're getting expansions in 4.2, 4.4, and 4.6.

For once that makes me sad. We have a handful of characters like Gold, Alice, Skirk that we have heard about since the very start of the game. For such a big character to be watered down into being a nobody, it makes the story so unimpactful. At this point we only have Dain that has been hyped up since the start and actually seems to live up to his hype in the story each year.

He shows up a bit at the beginning and a bit at the end.

Wasn't intending to but I just blitzed the whole thing, mixed feelings.
I really like Neuvi but once again a character with too much responsibility to be a husbando. Can we get a cool tall male bounty hunter or member of the Adventurer's Guild or something. Someone who could conceivably come along on the MC's adventures.
And then they give Furina a tragic? backstory, but it's too late, she will always be an annoying brat to me.
And Skirk… It's not her design that makes her annoying to me, but it is funny that I'm pretty sure she's the short female model. Have we ever heard about her master before? And those other names she mentioned that weren't Gold?
And annoying that they just bring up Childe's backstory like you should know it even though it only comes up in game if you rolled for him and leveled up his bond to get the story.
Don't really know what to think about all the reveals about the real Focalors and the people of Fontaine's true origin's and how easily everything seemed to wrap up at the end.
Salty that they killed off Navia's assistant's and I feel like part of it is just so the only one she has left is Chlorinde to push that ship…

I'm disappointed Arlecchino didn't do much on screen. It makes sense that most of her involvement was her help off screen since she was never really portrayed as an enemy in this region but now that we're done with the story I feel like all my excitement for her since the Winter Night video was for nothing? She just showed she cares about Fontaine, what about her goals as a Harbinger? Is she even going to be playable during Fontaine? Involving the Fatui too much would complicate things unnecessarily but I wish we got to see her more since her eventual personal story won't be about her. I was already guessing the main story would end in this update and I think they did really well with Furina's backstory (didn't play her character story yet) but dropping info that there are beings residing in Teyvat that can keep a galactic whale that terrorized a nation as a pet and not explaining anything felt so abrupt. It's not even similar to the dragon pets we saw before, this one is from out of Teyvat and all. Then there's Skirk who's been training all her life…. to fight what? More than anything I don't want this to be connected to fucking Honkai bubble universe bullshit. Guess we'll see in the next Dain quest.

Forgot to add… They scammed me into playing the 4.1 and 4.2 updates the first day by keeping Childe captive. We didn't even talk to him again after seeing that he was really straining himself in his Foul Legacy form. Skirk just threw him into a void. Bruh.

God I'm never going back to twitter if I have to see trannies pretend to relate to female characters. If anything, Furina's story relates to gender for being similar to how women have to act like a personality that will sit right with what's expected of our position/womanhood to get everyone's approval and constantly be overwhelmed by other people's opinions on us because their opinions and words will have crucial effects on our lives unlike men who get forgiven no matter what they do even in front of the law. Her begging people to remember how much she does for them and how they loved and were entertained by her just moments ago feels like women begging for people to be sensible while they try to ruin women's lives and careers over the smallest mistakes or even misunderstandings. I don't actually think it's a commentary on sexism or anything but if it has to relate to gender, it would've been this instead of whatever trannies think they see in her.

Men see small cute woman and want to be her, what else is new. They see her being a "girlfailure" as if pretending to be god for 500 years is anything but a losing game and think they too should be allowed to eat macaroni and cake all day and contribute nothing to society.
I think it's unintentional too but >>334336 is some pretty good analysis. But troons are incapable of analysis because everything has to be about them and their egos.

There are no canon ships, this is a martketing strategy because players self insert as the mc and they dont want to have there waifu/husbando be in a relationship with anyone else.

Most gacha games have multiple new outfits every update. It's harder to implement skins in Genshin but I believe they could dedicate some part of their design and 3d teams to put out a skin every patch or 2 skins every other patch if they want to keep up the 2 on theme thing.

No. 334978

I think they're just too lazy to do it. I play Enstars Music which also needs to consider how new character outfits would move in 3D textures/MVs and they casually release them bi-weekly. Mihoyo probably doesn't want to waste resources on skins that only a subsection of people will buy and instead direct their energy towards new characters. To be fair they also have the actual open-world to work on too which my example game doesn't have.

I like the takarazuka theatre influence in fountaine. Both furina and arlecchino wear androgynous fashion (FOR GENSHIN STANDARDS don't come at me that they're still feminine-looking). I also noticed that furina's legs are skinnier/more shapeless than the other short girls who tend to look "curvier". She doesn't give much to coomers (besides the tomboy enjoyers), even her chest is ultra-flat and she speaks in a boyish manner. In japanese she sounds like venti. And arlecchino is rather handsome, even if her body underneath the suit is still very curvy with big boobs. I remember some angry chinese moids were claiming she sounds like a drag queen lol. For me at least, she gives the vibes that she's genuinely gay and for a female audience, unlike yae and raiden who pander more to straight male yurifags.

NTA and I don't like the ship either because they have a very familial relationship to me but honestly who cares if women wanna ship them? Furina is the character Neuvillette interacts the most with by far, and Wriothesley felt very shoehorned in as the other half of the regional yaoi ship so it's not really a surprise that Focallette has become a popular ship.
It only disgusts me if there are obvious pedo undertones and Furina is reduced to being a DDLG brat while Neuvillette is her daddy tardwrangler, but Act V showed that she is actually a lot more mature than she came across at first so… Whatever. I really couldn't give less of a fuck if 15 year old girls wanna self insert into Furina to live out their yume fantasies with Neuvillette.

Spoilers for Act V Focalors isn't the same character as Furina though, she's responsible, mature and smart, and killed herself in the end. Furina is the "actor" she hired, a woobified brat who thinks and acts like a literal child, and she's the one Neuvillette knows. I can't stop people from shipping them but it's a red flag to me because it gives off severe DDLG vibes.

Have you played her story quest or read her voice lines? Her real personality is a lot more calm and levelheaded than what she acted like when she pretended to be the archon, that's why playing that role was so difficult for her. The "real" Furina is more like Focalors than the bratty ojousama she pretended to be during the archon quests because they are two sides of the same coin. She isn't a hired actress, she is Focalors and Focalors is Furina. If all you got from the many hours we spent learning about Furina is that she's a woobified brat with the mind of a child then you must have pretty bad reading comprehension.

I cringed hard when I watched how Focalors sounded in English dub. I played in JP and she sounded just a bit more calm than Furina, in EN she sounded like she's trying to be Jessica Rabbit or something kek, hope you get what I mean.

I'm just going to come out and say it, I absolutely despise Mihoyo for woobifying Focalors/Furina beyond repair. I hate what they did so, so much. I wanted her to be a cunning, pompous brat but in the end she got the Ei treatment and suddenly she's a kind, composed waifu deep down who just wanted to protect everyone and sacrificed herself for centuries boo hoo don't you feel bad for the little blorbo shame on you for thinking she was just being mean. It came out of nowhere during the last act while Furina had barely been present for the entire storyline doing nothing while Neuvillette was the actual hero of the archon quest for its entire length. I wanted one fucking female character that was a bitch born out of a trash fire but in a way that's interesting, got hyped for Furina, had Mihoyo shit in my face, ruin everything in just one act. The self-sacrificing storyline was done so well with Nahida/Rukkhadevata, it's like some writer at Mihoyo saw that and wanted to copy it but remove everything that made her complex, intelligent and humane. It's seriously no wonder so many emotionally unstable young women self insert into her so much, she's framed as a troubled quirky girl sitting around eating cake and crying but achsually she's a super powerful god who saved an entire nation offscreen. I'm so fucking mad because the most interesting parts of the archon quest turned out to be Childe's connections to Skirk and her master, Gold, the dragon sovereigns and Egeria's sin yet they were barely touched upon just so we could feel bad for a character that appeared at the last minute to drop the most generic, forced tearjerker cutscene that made me feel NOTHING.

Nahida joined the traveler early on to save her people who had completely forsaken her, she was authentic, pushed her limits and her story was opened up little by little during Sumeru's archon quest instead of being dumped on the player at literally the last second. She was likable but didn't kiss the traveler's ass, she came up with the samsara technique to take down Scaramouche and showed mercy to him only to keep him under her thumb simply because he was useful to her. She gambled away the gnosis for exchange of information because she had true curiosity for the world making it clear that she kept her own head despite being burdened by the legacy of her previous incarnation. Ei was a literal retard in every possible way and got ultra woobified in the end for no fucking reason besides waifufagging so Nahida was a huge improvement after her, only for me to be let down by everything repeating with Furina. I can't fucking believe they gave us a girl that actually felt interesting and flawed only to do the "just kidding, she was only playing a character!" rug pull, I'm convinced that the rumors about Fontaine's story being written by that scrote talking shit about female players are true.

Furina is literally just a human, and she wasn't even aware of the entirety of Foçalor's plan, so the only thing that she knew was that she had a burden of knowledge that that plan would fail if she ever let even one person in Teyvat know that she's not a real archon, despite everything she did her best to suppress her more humane side which is obvious even from the first court hearing with Lyney, so I don't know why you think that that came out of nowhere. She wasn't an archon but she still did everything for her people only to be discarded by them and not even being in epilogue, how tf is this comparable to Ei who was just sitting in her shitty doll for hundreds of years and let corrupt commissions do whatever with her country and people as long as it didn't mess with "eternity" which she herself confessed she didn't know shit about. Look, I understand that hoyoverse's writing for female characters is fucked, but the latest regions are actually improving on this and if they manage to make Tsaritsa a sleepy hardworking waifu somehow I will personally send them a pipe bomb. We still have Natlan in the future with a literal goddess of war, so maybe she will satisfy your want for psycho female characters (I don't judge, I am personally very satisfied with Arlecchino)

>Are you planning on pulling Navia, Clorinde or Arlecchino?
Personally I'm waiting for Arlecchino and Neuvillette rerun had I known he would be the one who took the “archon”-ish role I would have pulled for him instead of Furina. Navia's burst is so cool though. Currently I have Lyney, Lynette, Fremmy, Charlotte, Furina and Wrio. My favorite gameplay style is surprisingly Lyney! His animations are so fun and flashy for a male character as well as just really smooth. He feels great in the overworld and abyss, where you can comfortably just use his skill and burst to kill a bunch of enemies if charged shots aren't your thing. Great damage too even though theorycrafters like to downplay that. Furina was a bit disappointing to me, I can't find a team where she is better than Xinqiu.

No. 337216

ooh questionnaire time!
>Out of the current Fontaine characters, who has been your favorite in terms of gameplay?
I don't really do abyss or care much about meta in general, but I really like the fact that E character skills can be utilised to solve pneuma and ousia puzzles in overworld, idk it's just more satisfying than going to those orbs. The traveler's hydro kit is shit though, even I can tell
>Which Fontaine characters have you pulled?
I'm f2p newfag, so I don't have much: pulled for Lyney - didn't get him, pulled for Neuvilette - got him, didn't pull for Wriotheseley, wanted Venti - lost 50/50 to Mona, currently pulling for Baizhu, I like Furina, but I want to get her on the rerun. Out of 4 stars I got Lynette and Freminet, they are cute
>Are you planning on pulling Navia, Clorinde or Arlecchino?
I pull for everything, because I actually don't care that much. Navia's banner is alongside Ayaka's and tbh I kinda hate Ayaka, so I'll be pulling for Navia. I like Clorinde even though I know that her design could be better, I hope her kit is good.

Wriothesley. Neuvillette's laser is unique and it's funny seeing enemies just melt in it but Wriothesley feels so satisfying to play. Good animations, good damage, perfect voice acting.
>Which Fontaine characters have you pulled?
Neuvillette, Wriothesley, and Furina.

Navia on rerun maybe because I like her character, Arlecchino 100%. Hard no on Clorinde. Maybe Cloud Retainer but she'd have to have a broken kit for me to consider it when I already have C6 Kazuha.

I guess I like Freminet's playstyle the most, usually I'm not too much into claymore gameplay, because not all of my teams have shielders and dodging with giant ass sword is a challenge, but I use Neuvilette as a hydro applicator and then freeze everyone with Freminet and have a good time seeing him on-field

Wriothesley. I got lucky and got really good artifacts for him so he kills enemies really fast and I love the punch combos I can do. The last/charge big punch feels good.
>Which Fontaine characters have you pulled?
Neuvi, Wriothesley and all the four stars. I pulled for Baizhu but I'll probably try to get Furina on her rerun because she goes well with Wrio.
>Are you planning on pulling Navia, Clorinde or Arlecchino?
I'm Arlecchino simp so definitely her, I hope she's a support and I can have her in same team as Wrio.
I don't care for Navia's personality because I thought she's really weird with the random macron baking during the conversation (manic pixie girl-ish?) and I really wish she had a different role in the story than a weird mafia boss, her design says something totally different. The sunglasses don't go well with her dress too. I feel like she was designed with something different in mind, like a navy captain or a court lady.
Definitely not pulling for Clorinde, I am a certified Clorinde hater, can't take her seriously with that design.

Yeah the navy vibes with Navia are strong, which is why they went with the giant ship in Poisson I guess

Also on a completely unrelated topic, what happened to Childe nonas? Skirk threw him into that Dainsleif power-looking portal with the whale. We don’t see him but Arlecchino and the the two Fatui in Mondstadt say he’s badly hurt and is resting in Shneznaya, but is that really true?

Regarding Arlecchino, it's so, so weird that Childe's voiceline about her described her as having "no sane bone in her body" and she was foreshadowed as the ominous "father" in the Fontaine trailer pushing down those Lynette and Lyney stands making cryptic remarks but in the end she was just a nice lady who helped everyone out offscreen. What the fuck? It's like they missed an entire story chapter, seeing what a mess Dottore and Scaramouche created in Sumeru I was fully expecting her to carry on the tradition. She just showed up, bullied Furina a bit, helped everyone and left. Why is Mihoyo so allergic to morally questionable women?

No. 337513

I think it's because they realised people want her playable and tinfoil but they might be wary of making her more edgy like Scaramouche. He ended up being a huge problem with Korean and Chinese people, probably because he's a male character but there's a substantial portion of fandom hating him just because he isn't mild a nice like most other characters. I was really looking forward to playing a villain and she sounds kind of ridiculous in English, her voice actress makes her sound like a cartoon villain while she is just a nice lady now.
I feel like the change was last minute because in the 4.0 trailer she still acted kind of evil.

No. 337539

Yeah I know that, Freminet said that. I just mean in the archon story, she is just a "cunning diplomatic mastermind" but other than that it’s a bit underwhelming for the second strongest harbringer.
Exactly, I expected her to be unreasonably cruel but she seems very level-headed and morally righteous.
The Scara hate is because women found his bad boy attitude cute and formed a huge Scara fandom globally. Dottore doesn’t get that hate by male players (even though he’s crueler than Scara) because Dottore doesn’t have a vocal fangirl fanbase. Scara is still the most liked character on every official Genshin twitter, that ought to bother the male playerbase who insist genshin is a waifu-only game. So Arlecchino could have definitely been portrayed as more cruel, the moids wouldn’t get bothered by that.

No. 337547

She isn't the second strongest, she's the 4th in rank. We have only seen her "good" side in the Fontaine archon quest because that's what she wanted to present herself as. Scara told us exactly what she is, a wolf in sheeps clothing. It wouldn't make sense for her to be on bad terms with Traveller already, they're more useful to her if they think she's friendly.
If you think about who she is and what she does for more than 5 seconds you'd realize that she's actually a terrible person. She grooms children into being hyper loyal child soldiers and doesn't mind sacrificing them like pawns when it suits her.
I don't think she's fully evil like Dottore (who's pretty comic book villainous at times, especially his Webtoon variant. Thank God they gave us a different version of him in the actual game), but even her perceived kindness towards the HoH kids doesn't feel fully genuine because of how ready she is to let them get killed. Keep in mind that she has indoctrinated them to the point that Lyney was ready to sacrifice his siblings for her. She didn't save them from their abusive circumstances out of kindness, she took them in because traumatized children are more easily manipulated into being loyal servants for their savior.
And she didn't "bully Furina a bit". She straight up attempted to assassinate her.
Fontaine was all about playing a role, and she played the role of the elegant Fatui ally.

No. 337558

>Keep in mind that she has indoctrinated them to the point that Lyney was ready to sacrifice his siblings for her
He had a mental breakdown and lost his composure entirely attacking Wriothesley when Freminet and Lynette were in perceived mortal danger, what do you mean "ready to sacrifice his siblings"?
>she took them in because traumatized children are more easily manipulated into being loyal servants for their savior.
After killing the people who abused them and took the kids under her care. HoH has never been described as "grooming child soldiers", it's just a spy faction for the Fatui, not some boot camp of death because only children who are perceived to have "potential" are chosen to join Fatui ranks anyway. It's just a regular orphanage for the most part.
>And she didn't "bully Furina a bit". She straight up attempted to assassinate her.
No she didn't. She literally said that she was testing her to see if she was the real archon or not, not trying to actually kill her.

Look I know you're in these threads whiteknighting the fuck out of Arlecchino because she's your ultimate waifu but people are justified in being disappointed at how milquetoast she turned out to be despite all the foreshadowing done beforehand. Dottore was a sophisticated supervillain and genuinely intimidating in how ruthless and evil he was, Arlecchino wasn't given that edge because Mihoyo would never make a a female character be threatening. Sure this might be just the first half of her story and she could turn out to be a real psycho but so far I'm not holding my breath since Genshin has woobified (or killed unceremoniously) every potential female villain in the entire game since its launch.

What are you talking about, everyone absolutely hates Dottore. I'm not talking just about moids (who in general hate him too) but considering at least half of genshin userbase are teenagers that freak out about morally ambiguous characters, I think hoyo wants to be safe with her and maximise the pulling.

No. 337570

NTA but Lyney was having a mental breakdown over Wriothesley just asking him to arrange a meeting between him and Arlecchino. He was breaking down having to make the choice of potentially harming Arlecchino. Arle even berates Lyney later for being so paranoid about her safety and said she wouldn't have minded meeting Wriothesley.
Also Mihoyo not making a woman threatening falls apart when you remember Signora existed. She shouldn't have been killed in Inazuma, plain and simple, but she was given a plenty threatening introduction and role. Arlecchino was playing nice with us to get what she wanted, she'll probably be an antagonist towards us later.

Yes, and if they want to leave the organization they have to do crazy shit like fake their own deaths. They don't have a choice whether they want to join or leave, and we have met ex-orphanage NPC Fatui who realized that what they've been forced to do is bad and they didn't want to stay in the ranks anymore but couldn't just resign.
>No she didn't.
Yes she did. She said that it was an attempted assassination.

I literally said that Arlecchino isn't a fully evil person, no idea why you think that me pointing out her wolf in sheeps clothing behavior is copium or whiteknighting. The only actually evil person we have met in the game so far is Dottore. Nobody else comes close, not even any of the other Fatui Harbingers. Childe is at this point a chill guy who plays with kids and makes friends more than he does evil things, and Wanderer is the biggest woobie in the entire game. I love him but some of the behavior he exhibited while he was still with the Fatui feels like weird over the top behavior you'd find in a fanfic kek. It is kind of a shame that Dottore is likely going to be the only actually morally black Fatui since Capitano is apparently also a decent guy, but what can you do.
Imo, what we have seen of her is very interesting, and I personally much prefer the subtle approach of Arlecchino over cringe in-your-face obvious villains. It feels like more mature writing compared to Paimon explaining things 500 times and many characters only having one personality trait. Let HYV cook, their writing abilities have been massively improving since Sumeru and I doubt this will be the last and only narrative relevance Arle is going to have. Remember that Scara's appearance in Inazuma was also super short and pretty meaningless even though he's clearly a big writers pet.

With Neuvillette being the one to take the role of the archon and its duties, and Furina being a normal human who now got her vision in the most anticlimactic way, I can’t help but seethe that they advertised her as an archon. I would’ve never pulled for her knowing she was a normal human and that Neuv is the closest to an archon for Fontaine. Every traveler is based on the regional archon. Hydro Traveler is based on Neuv’s skills and everything too, rather than Furina’s. Neuv in general was definitely who the story revolved around, fucking Furina disappeared during the end of the finale and Neuv got the epic archon power cutscenes. The one time I pull a female archon and she turns out to be a wet fart in the story. I should’ve stuck to my husbando gut feeling about Neuvillette.

No. 337924

Does her past and present not matter to you? The before of the future you wish they started from? We saw her story and progressed it on screen. By your logic we should only ever get characters after they've completed all their arcs and that's how we get characters with boring personal stories and no true impact on archon stories. If you don't like her because she no longer has archon powers which she never had and never showed on screen anyway so it never mattered then did you even like her at all?

No. 337929

I genuinely hate how 4.3 turned out, the buildup was HUGE and it ended up being a disappointment in every meaning of the word. I'm honestly happy that Neuvillette became the ruling hydro sovereign because they were the original rulers of Teyvat and got their powers ripped away from them but I hate what they did to Furina, she was so hyped and even I was excited to see where they take her character and it was just a regular human and the laziest fucking "plot twist". "Oh yeah by the way I built this machine to gather up energy to kill myself and end the hydro archon throne and Furina was fooling Celestia while I was doing it" sounds like such a cop out, I really don't see Celestia not being aware of this happening. It seriously doesn't make sense that they wouldn't realize that Furina wasn't the real archon ESPECIALLY seeing how Egeria betrayed them, you'd think they'd keep an eye out? No, fuck this, I wanted Furina to have a moment to shine at the end and save her people and reclaim her position in their eyes but now she practically disappeared offscreen being disgraced in front of Fontaine. I know that would've been equally cliche but it would've been much more satisfying for the amount of build up 4.1 and 4.2 gave us. Furina was too promising to end up as a crybaby human who suffered for 500 years not being able to tell anyone oh no!!!!! The people defending her are the ones projecting into her and that's that.

>You can take a vacation there as a non-Natlan citizen
>Nation of dragons but not dragon sovereigns like Neuvillette
>Nation of War
>War and conflict between tribes
>Many different tribes
>Murata was or still is the archon
Why is this all we know after so many years? Why is there no Natlan NPC? Theories on what mihoyo is plotting would be a fun discussion!

No. 338315

We also know about Mare Jivari, an ash-filled field where the wind doesn't blow and people's dreams die.
I like the theory that Bennett is from Natlan and there's a curse on the people of Natlan if they leave, hence why there's no Natlan NPCs anywhere.
We know nothing because the devs probably didn't have anything nailed down except some basics like there will be hot springs and wanting South American and African influences.

Totally forgot about Mare Jivari! And yeah the curse would make sense but Venessa was from Natlan and could leave and end up in Mondstadt.
>We know nothing because the devs probably didn't have anything nailed down except some basics like there will be hot springs and wanting South American and African influences.
This would make sense if we were still in Sumeru, but now we’re in Fontaine with a finished archon quest and Natlan being released in summer. Mihoyo has prepared the general story and conflict of the upcoming region every time during this point in the current region. This has to be deliberate.

No. 338340

I don't think there's a curse, but I do think there's something that makes them not leave. We have met NPCs from literally every region, even Snezhnaya, but nobody from Natlan so there must be a reason to it. Even a war would cause refugees, wouldn't you think? Neuvillette mentioned dragons and Enkanomiya foreshadowed vishaps evolving into humans, maybe that's happening in Natlan since the Enkanomiya prophecy about the hydro dragon came back in Fontaine?

No. 338390

I don't like her design in the slightest but she is undeniably very useful in combat, especially with alhaitham, saying she's useless is delusional

No. 338399

Alhaitham works great with Baizhu, XQ/Furina, Kuki. Nahida is not useless but not a must-pull like scrotes shill her.
I also believe in the vishap thing, it is the only thing that would make sense based on what Neuvillette said. Maybe they can't leave because they'll turn to their vishap form? And other people from Teyvat don't know this vishap thing I assume since nobody mentions it. But the weird thing is why hasn't a single NPC mentioned the lack of Natlanian presence in other nations.

Everymoid started hating Nahida because she wasn't a braindead little girl like Klee or Qiqi or Diona after all but actually an intelligent old soul (sans the retarded really out of character dookie talk) who played an important part in the archon quest so she stopped being the cute corruptable loli to them. Say what you will about Nahida, if you removed her from the story they wouldn't have been able to escape Dottore, defeat Scaramouche, deal with Irminsul or break out of the Samsara so she actually did something worthwhile compared to Ei who barely appeared in the story quest and did literally nothing during the entire Inazuma chapter but she's a fan favourite because she's a head empty no thoughts sapphic hikikomori booba sword autist.

No. 339214

>Is it because of better competition, nonna? I'm genuinely curious and don't keep up with other games
No not because of that. You can see the hype dying just from these threads, the "big" genshin youtubers barely playing the game anymore and just the fandom in general on twitter/twitter fanartists for example dwindling in numbers. It’s natural for a game to lose some hype after the first few years, especially with a game like Genshin where most players that have left say that the amount of content to catch up with is too much.

On these threads especially I saw a small decline during the later end of Inazuma. Then a surge during Sumeru and a drastic decline in thread activity during the many desert patches. The threads have been slow since then. I do think the desert areas did drive away the returning players. It’s exactly the criticism that the leaving players have conveyed: too big, too much, hard to keep up with the lore dumps, huge world quests etc. All of this mihoyo has addressed with Fontaine with its smaller region size and shorter world quests that explain everything to you. Easier to keep up with. Seems like it’s a bit too late though, genshin isn’t nearly as hyped anymore than its earlier days.

Vent post, sorry anons.
I haven't opened the game at all in the last three weeks, basically because I don't even know what to do anymore… I already have all of the characters I want built, and the ones I don't don't fit on any teams or have similar kits to the ones I already have built. There are too many charas that have the same kits or need a national team to work.
Artifact farming has taken a toll on me, and chest/primo farming too. My artifact storage is full, cause I'm too lazy to look at each one and see which ones are trash and which ones I should save "for future characters"…
Last month I bought a welkin, but I wasted my money, cause I couldn't bring myself to even log in everyday.
The story is more confusing as the plot advances, and instead of answering questions we already have, they just keep creating more plot points or whatever. The only times we get "answers" are when Dainsleif appears, which is… two times a year.
The events are so stupid lately, full of NPC faggotry instead of showing us interactions between the playable characters. I haven't even touched the 4.2 main event, even though I don't have Freminet.
The anniversary was also a joke. Nothing felt like we were celebrating 3 years of economic success for mihoyo. It was just another normal update. I miss Windtrace, I miss the first Archipelago events, I miss event namecards, I miss lore in events!!
And now, I feel stupid for having wasted so much time on this game. I enjoyed the first two years, but after Sumeru (3.0) everything went downhill in my opinion. I miss
I just don't have any motivation lately. I open the game and I get the urge to close it. It's like when you reach that point on a farming sim where you still haven't gotten all the achievements or whatever, but you are content with your farm and can't bother to keep grinding.

The event was ok, and it really doesn't take much time. I'm glad they gave a free Fremi even though I'll never use him.

>How frequently do streams happen, every X weeks or once a month?
The streams are always announced beforehand by Genshin official accounts. Each Genshin patch is every 6 weeks. The livestreams are usually 2 weeks prior to the next patch, on Fridays or weekends depending on your time zone and if there is a Chinese death/holiday they have to avoid having a livestream on.
>I hear you guys get a yearly lantern event?
The lantern rite event occurs close to Chinese new year. It’s a yearly event that has never been skipped. There’s also some events that used to be yearly but aren’t anymore. However, there’s a big chance they’ll come back. We used to have a yearly Dragonspine event with Albedo lore. Then there is the Windblume event in Mondstatdt. Golden Apple Archipelago event is every summer. Check this list and click on the events for more info. There are some events like the Weinlesefest that I believe will be returning someday. https://genshin-impact.fandom.com/wiki/Flagship_Event
>Whats the usual gap between showing new worlds?
Do you mean new nations? We get them after summer each year, around August. Usually this is after the .8 patch. So 2.8, 3.8 etc. Golden apple archipelago event is before that.

There's a new stream every six weeks coinciding with the release of a new patch. Lantern Rite is essentially the Chinese New Year event and happens every year. There's a summer event every .8 patch. Other than that they've had Windblume in Mondstadt and a summer festival event in Inazuma.

They were threatening her life and wanted to doxx her because of this. Hoyo then released a statement saying players shouldn't incite harassment, spread rumors or post personal info but that could also be due to other apparently ongoing issues in the chinese community.

Where did they release this statement? Can you link it?
If you want to try and parse it from a Korean perspective, I ran most of this through DeepL in chunks and it wasn't complete gibberish (though it does seem to keep translating misandry as misogyny).
It really makes me laugh how some guys lost their marbles over these very low-level joke tweets when they, 99% of the time, are jerking it to destructive pornography of women and girls every day and in KOREA of all places, the country where women can't take a peaceful piss in public without worrying about being recorded and posted online. It seems this same artist had a previous "controversy" with fans of Arknights with at least her art getting deleted by the company and an apology message from them
I can't tell if she got fired by Arknights or if she did a one-off art for them. Like you said, I'm happy Genshin's HR isn't giving her the boot considering how things have gone recently with other similar situations like with Limbus Company.

Fontaine is considered a waifu region since all the characters left from the leaks are going to be waifus minus the Liyue boy and Dahlia (Mondstadt boy) and maybe the musketeer if he hasn't been cut. They just frontloaded the husbandos. If anything Natlan should be a husbando region to balance it out.

Chiori looks pretty and without any coomery to me.

No. 343170

You guys can't be pleased with anything. In the new art the rope follows the curvature of her breasts but it's not squished. She's literally fully dressed, with no ass cracks, exposed thighs, armpits or cleavage. She looks actually elegant and serious. You can't even compare her to someone like shenhe

No. 343172

>She's literally fully dressed
Am I just fucking blind or something, because to me it in the art >>343168 it looks like her thighs and butt are exposed at the side to show that she is not wearing any panties. And her the top of her cleavage is covered with some thight see through fabric. Like yeah its not as bad as Shenhe, but lets compare her to >>343164 or Arlecchino who are actually fully covered.

Speaking about >>343164 so sad to see that he has no cute ears and tails, and again is fully covered. While the female characters are always allowed to show skin at weird places.

I think she is pretty, i hope she wears cute bloomers or shorts under her skirt. Ayaka her panty shots are always so creepy during her fight animation.

No. 343173

I hated the rope in her boobs since the first time I saw it in the cutscenes last year. Yeah it looks uncomfortable to look at it for me, kinda icks me out so I'll skip on Cloud Retainer sadly. Makes me cringe, like a wedgie or something.
Yeah it's good she doesn't have exposed armpits and thigh highs though.

No. 343174

This is a good female design. They should've given this to another female character and made the guy the blonde design.
I agree that it's beautiful but the fact that it is considered noncoomery just shows how bad the female designs are. It's just an okay level of coomery.

No. 343175

You guys wouldn't be happy with any female design or character anyway…

No. 343176

This is such a bait, literally everyone likes Arlecchino here and most of us like Furina too. I could name a few more characters, but literally everytime a new character is released with coomer elements you come to this thread and reee about how we all hate your waifus or something

No. 343177

I even like some of the coomer designs like Yae Miko, I just don't like the boob rope kek. I don't like the matte black elastic fabric over boobs in general (Ganyu, Shenhe, Sara). Other than the chest area I like Cloud Retainer's design.

No. 343178

How is this bait?
>everyone likes arlecchino
Yes, but you can't say you like any other girl without one of you being like "she has a few coomer elements so she's moidpaindering trash" like how is that fair? It's not even about being delusional, yes I'm aware that they're pandering to moids first and foremost but that
doesn't mean I can't enjoy some of these female characters. Moids are literally constantly seething that their designs are niqab tier while you guys think all of them are dressed like prostitutes just because they're showing some patch of skin. Also not all of them have the same level of coomery, look at clorinde and navia, from the same region, both showing skin, but clorinde feels more male gaze-y while navia doesn't even have a regular cleavage.

Her breasts and legs are covered with see-through skintight mesh fabric so she might as well be naked. Hate the tit squish and the holes on the sides of her thighs. Blatant Bayonetta ripoff.

She's pretty, but I really hope she's wearing shorts under her skirt. Her armpits are bared again because someone at Mihoyo really can't fide his fetish.

I don't like Arlecchino's design, I hate how she looks like an overdesigned overworld monster NPC indistinguishable from those fatui women implemented recently, how her suit is vacuumed to her body showing off her figure and how she's canonically barely clothed under the open jacket with huge breasts too. That one cutscene screenshot of her without the jacket really showed how coomerish her outfit actually is, she looked way better in the concept art than her actual model. Every single tall female in Genshin looks like ridiculous coomshit except maybe Dehya and Candace who ironically enough show the most skin because at least them living in the desert it fits their conditions and they don't have stupid pervy peekholes in their clothes.

No. 343189

>arm pushing up her breasts
Ew. This is so embarassing kekw. If I were the artist, I would feel ashamed of drawing her like this, but moids have such simple minds they think this actually doesn't look retarded as fuck and is super sexy and all, lel.
Someone give her a free breast reduction surgery, she is struggling.

No. 343191

its bait because you keep saying we dont like any of female characters just because we comment om some of the coomer design elements?
>Yes, but you can't say you like any other girl
This is also not true and you know it, there was literally a Yoimiya fan here. She has a super coomer design, yet nothing stopped her from posting fan art and perging about her. No one called her a moid either. Do people point out the coomer elements, yes but you wont be called a moid and banned for saying you like a female character even with the coomer design kek.
Also where do any of us say that you can't like her character design? People are only saying that she in fact does have some coomer elements so i really don't see why you feel so attacked. no one is calling her a prostitute either?
>Also not all of them have the same level of coomery
No one is disagreeing with this? Like yeah no shit Shenhe has a far more coomer design
If you are seriously so sensitive that you will feel attacked when we just point out some parts of the design, without even saying that you are not allowed to like it or that girls dont like it. You really need to get offline.
>I don't like the matte black elastic fabric over boobs in general (Ganyu, Shenhe, Sara)
Yeah I remember someone saying that Ganyu her top looked like a panty hose and i cant get it out of my mind, it just looks tacky.

I don't remember Arlecchino her concept art being that different. It's just that the tall female genshin models all have the same boy so it looks different then on paper.
>except maybe Dehya and Candace
I actually really like those too, like you said it makes sense because they live in the desert. Ofcourse the thight belts on Dehya make my eyes roll. But i think her design is cool, and Candace has a really elegent outfit. It's not so much that i care about the amount of skin being showed, its those anime coomer elements that bother me (spilling thigh fat, panty shots, showing side of the hips to show a character is not wearing underwear ect).
>she looks like an overdesigned overworld monster NPC indistinguishable from those fatui women implemented recently
The thing is i really like those npcs desgins too kek, but i understand your point. And her suit is indeed vacuumed, but i feel like her design is the best we will ever get for a female character in a suit.

No. 343193

Of course they had to give her naked hip cutouts like almost all Liyue tall women

No. 343612

I have a soft spot for edgier cool characters. She makes me laugh with her aloofness and snark. Both her designs look cool and sleek to me (post breast reduction, her original torpedos were impossible to look at without laughing at how comical they were). But I'm also not one to nitpick over any sexuality or sensuality on a (usually female) character like some anons do.

No. 343636

She's one of the few female characters that isn't just boringly nice and despite being obviously sexy her (especially the new) outfit has more of a punk rock feel than a moidpandering one to it. No retarded holes around her hips or translucent pseudo-nude parts. I also like her lore, she was kidnapped and raised by bandits who taught her the ways of an assassin and after Knights of Favonius killed them all she just got stuck with the church doing the bare minimum to stay there. I like that she's unapologetically edgy and mean, it's fun.

I just like goth or edgy designs. My dream team is Wriothesley, Rosaria, Arlecchino and the demon girl that isn't released yet.

No. 343728

I'm no big fan of rosaria but she's one of those characters who were made for a moid audience at first but gradually gained popularity with the female fanbase because of her personality and goth aesthetic. I think I've seen more female fans genuinely enjoy her character rather than moids who only jerked off to her when she was released and then forgot about her. Also I think her new "censored" outfit is pretty cool actually.

Yeah, honestly haven't seen many moid fans of her, I wonder why? She's pretty much forgotten in moid spaces, I guess they have newer waifus to obsess over.
I thought I would hate her because of how she was designed for moids too much but I ended up liking her and her shitty attitude a lot. The new design is such an improvement in the chest area, I wrote itt that I hate matte black boobs and I don't discriminate, I hated her mystery fabric matte white boobs too. But a part of me really wishes she kept her fishnets in the new design, I thought they looked great. It's a shame scrotes find them sexy and apparently CCP thinks they are too sexy and have to be censored, to me fishnets are associated with cool alt girls and not porny bullshit.

It's not bad by itself, just basic. It ticks off the list of the most basic design rules like every clothing piece making sense and being in harmony etc but the same clothing could belong to literally any other character. It's a very common modern-traditional mix you can see on any character in any game. >>341411 These designs on the other hand have design elements that could belong only to a character that does the Lion dance/has relations to a tiger. It has the shoes he'd wear during the dance, the fur resembling a tiger around his neck, tiger eyes, lion tail in the back of his clothing. Even the right one with no fur scarf has it on his wrists. You look at these and can tell he's a performer and is active. You look at the final design and he just looks like a guy from Liyue.

No. 344012

The "directing" event is so fun, I like cute short event challenges that involve characters. But about the 2nd story of the event, they really pulled a reason out their ass to replace the sibling that got no spotlight in his country's story with a female character that looks the farthest thing from Ayaka. Actor Ayato was going to be so fun to see but we can't have nice things I guess. I really can't understand what's going through their heads while writing these events.

Do anons here feel anything on seeing official art of female characters with exposed midriff/cleavage/thighs etc.? I saw many women on Twitter going crazy over Ningguang, Navia and Lumine's outfits. Personally, I do not feel much except disdain because I HATE how male characters are always covered from head to toe in loose-fitting outfits, even in modern settings, while female characters are consistently drawn in skimpy outfits.

The skin showing is not tasteful so they just look like the coomerbait they are designed to be to me. If the game didn't desensitize me to thighs spilling from a meaningless space on the pants or armpits being shown on every single woman I could find the occasional skin reveal sexy just like how Childe's small stomach skin and Heizou's side chest windows are sexy in a subtle way. Ningguang could look "unexpectedly" sexy if her in game outfit wasn't already too revealing for her job. I'm hoping we never get to the point where people see huge boobs spilling everywhere and think it looks like a human being… Anyone else saw that one gacha art on twitter a few months ago?

I agree with you a lot, I'm a lesbian but I feel only feel annoyed that the male characters are fully clothed and the girls have to wear skimpy clothes. This will probably get me in trouble, but those "girls" on twitter who go crazy about these female anime characters (calling them mommy ect) are mostly teenage girls who feel they need to be a cool girl and act like a horny moid. I can't imagine actually finding this attractive kek.

I have never felt attracted to an anime girl, the only fictional girl i have actually felt attracted to was Vi from arcane kek.

>Anyone else saw that one gacha art on twitter a few months ago?

one of the most notable points of her original design is the leg cutouts, it was definitely intended from the start. wouldn't be surprised if it was the other way around and the artist ended up adding more clothes after deciding she would be in the front so it wouldn't look like a pure softcore porn add when half their playerbase is still underage.

his is unironically the worst. lazy pose and expression and an unremarkable outfit with no resemblance to his original design other than being fully clothed unlike any of the others. he's already ugly but they did him dirty. if not for the hair he would barely register as a character instead of some random background helper. he was a bad choice for this.

Despite being lesbian I barely find anime girls attractive at all. To me they represent moid pandering, they're mindless sex dolls made for men to slobber over. They're not real women and that's why the "you're misogynist if you don't like female characters" narrative is so retarded, as if 90% of these characters weren't created solely for scrotes. You can almost immediately tell when there's a female character who was made by someone wanted to just make a good character with a nice design because the vibe is noticeably different from those that are made by either coom-addicted men or alternatively women who caught coom-addicted male brainrot fleas.

It was way more subtle, just look at the 1.0 female characters, back then Lisa had the most sexy design.

This art actually made me decide to stop buying welkins kek. I know I shouldn't have put any money on this game anyway, but I just wanted to grab my fave characters. It just makes me so sad, because I finally thought I found a big weeb game with a good budget that would actually also try to appeal to the female gaze and not sexualize the female characters too much. Like all these shitty open world anime games have the most coomerish and over sexualized female characters. It's so sad, I guess my only hope is Infinity Nikki, even though that will probably focus more on the dress up part like the other games in the Nikki series. I don't want to start writing a whole manifesto about how much the game industry caters to moids, but god damn. I feel like mihoyo just baited female players to play the game at launch and then slowly decided to pander more to moids with each update.

Any anons who think that the game was less coomer-ish when it first came out are on some military grade copium. The game has had anime girls wearing lingerie and hotpants while their tits jiggle around like pudding since release day. Honestly I think Liyue and Inazuma were the worst eras for pornified female designs and - other than Skirks ugly stripper outfit - things have massively improved since Fontaine.

I just wish they'd design more tall male characters like Wriothesley because I'm sick and tired of 90% of the game being either comically sluttily dressed women, comically overdressed men, or underage looking manlets.

you could always buy a steam deck and play real games on the go. it's perfect for piracy, emulation, and VN/otome. I had to quit genshin because of the boring unskippable story, events, and gacha farming gameplay, and the open world is kind of… really ugly and poorly made, tbh the novelty of those has worn off on me and I started to find them overrated. I don't even like the characters anymore because of the ridiculous vtuber look every design seems to have regardless of sex, and the female characters being terrible in both design and writing is depressing. not to mention just building them is aids.

I like Lumine's outfit but it would be fun if she got a new one each region. It's strange how infrequent skins are in Genshin.
Only this >>345303 one is good. The other designs just suck. They really need to quality check the artists they're giving this work to instead of approving whatever coomer slop. The coomerism is mostly outside of the game, at least.
It would look better if only part of her back was exposed or none. I like Bayonetta but this is not it. Overall I think Sumeru and Fontaine have been pretty coom free though minus Clorinde. Nilou, Layla, Dehya, Furina, Navia, Arlecchino, all of them have been well-received by women. Even the duds like Nahida have had story relevance that make them more than just coom bait. There's been a lot of fanservice for women in the men too, though I'd like to see a male character exposing as much skin as Itto again.

Anons, I've just gotten around playing the Archon quest with the Furina/Focalor drama. I'm ESL and I don't understand what has actually happened during the quest? Can someone tell me if I got the story right? Spoiler below in case some anons haven't played the quest yet.

From what I understand, Focalor separated her "divinity" self and "humanity" self creating human Furina to play the fake Archon for 500 years right? But they're actually the same person? Just separated? But then Focalor also mentioned that they're both not humans too and were Oceanids. Focalor wanted to avoid the wrath of Celestia and the inevitable prophecy that's why she "created/separated" her humanity side to trick Celestia. But I still don't get why she needed to separate her divinity/god self and human self to trick Celestia? She's just making herself and Furina suffer for nothing because in the end the prophecy did happen? Also, does that mean all the characters from Fontaine like Navia, Lyney, Lynette etc are not human but Oceanids? What about character from other nations? Also Focalor mentioned that before the Archons become rulers of Teyvat, it was the dragons who ruled before them, so does that mean the Archons are actually just demi gods? While "Celestia" is/are the actual God(s)?

Is it just me or does the game's main story is becoming too complicated to comprehend? Or maybe I'm just bad at following Genshin lore because I have the attention span of a gnat haha. Please someone explain to me like I'm Razor who doesn't understand english. Thanks!

Tl;dr of the story:
Hundreds of years ago, long before the Cataclysm, Egeria turned the Oceanids of Fontaine into mortal humans (only in Fontaine) as a gift to them. Celestia had a hissy fit because she didn't ask for permission and made the Prophecy saying all the Oceanid-humans would get washed away beneath the waves and the Hydro Archon would be left crying on her throne. The God-King Remus overthrew Egeria possibly with Celestia's consent and tried to reason with Celestia after he took over, but Celestia wouldn't hear him out and he went crazy trying to protect the people by turning them all into Golden Ichor and making them into robots. Before he could do that Remuria got swallowed by the Abyss and Egeria took over again. She then died during the Cataclysm helping Rukkhadevata protect Irminsul and her body became the giant flower that the Pari protect, leaving her second-in-command Focalors in charge.
Focalors realized the only way to save the people of Fontaine, who weren't really fully human yet, was to get the Hydro Sovereign (Neuvilette) to turn them all into real humans so they wouldn't dissolve in Primordial Seawater. But Neuvilette didn't have his full powers and wouldn't have them as long as a Hydro Archon existed. So she made a plan to store enough Indemnidium to fully destroy the seat of the Hydro Archon so Neuvilette could turn the Oceanid-humans into real humans and she couldn't be replaced. Celestia needed to think she was acting as the Hydro Archon or they might start the Prophecy too early, but she needed to entirely focus on her task. So she split herself (she was also an Oceanid-human, but with divine power as the Archon) into her "divine" self and her "human" self. Her human self became Furina and was given the task of pretending to be divine until Focalors could store up enough power. Focalors went into the Oratrice and stored up the emotional energy from 500 years worth of trials into a weapon that could fully destroy the Hydro Archon. Furina pretended to be fully divine. Neuvilette lived among the Oceanid-humans and learned to relate to them.
When the Traveler and Neuvilette put Furina on trial trying to figure out what she was hiding, they accidentally revealed Furina wasn't divine. Celestia triggered the Prophecy and started flooding Fontaine, which would dissolve the Oceanid-humans into water. But Focalors' trial triggered and she used the stored power to kill herself after explaining what was about to happen to Neuvilette. Neuvilette regained his full power as the Hydro Sovereign and decided to turn the Oceanid-humans into real people who wouldn't dissolve in Primordial Seawater, making it seem like the Prophecy happened but really averting it. This included Furina, who wasn't executed because she was Focalors' "human" half. Neuvilette then gifted Furina her Vision when she returned to the stage, making her a potential god candidate again.

The boring dialogue is the worst part of Genshin. I've been seeing Furina and Neuvilette everywhere recently, I like Neuvilette's design and was curious why they seem so popular so I tried to play again. But I can't get past the Chasm, because it is way too boring for me. The dialogue and quests really suck, maybe I'll try again if we eventually get a skip button but I don't have hope for that. Which is very odd, why don't they have that I wonder.

Thanks anon! You're my hero.

Tbh I think Focalors/Furina had it coming since she defied Celestia lol. I really find this Archon quest more interesting than previous ones. The most boring Archon quest was definitely Ei's.

On another note… wtf?! What did they do to Xingqiu's short shorts?! A travesty!

Fischl's skin is a major improvement over the original.
