11 hours until Neuvillette's banner goes up. I wonder who they'll put in his trial. I'm hoping they include Beidou because I want to try them out together before rolling for him.

60 primo code
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.>>323625
Kek I was busy staring at that badly drawn Zhongli to notice coomy Mona. should've been the anemo boys in my extremely biased opinion>>323628
Same! Though I'm thinking of skipping Furina for his weapon.
i really dont want to nitpick, but op why did you chose that as the thread pic. The art styles dont even match and especially the Mona art is very bad. And why is Nahida the empress, you know the card for sensuality and fertility?>>323633
Thank you for the code!>>323625
Yeah a coomer or a minor, like how did they even find this shitty compilation? Also I swear someone posted this picture before, including the Nahida as empress, just creepy…
samefag I found the post >>>/m/305868
not the same fan arts, but still weird that this anon (who i now assume is a moid kek) keeps posting shitty genshin tarrot decks.

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.

I made the compilation myself after seeing the images get posted on twitter yesterday because I thought they looked neat. They were posted under the tag #原神大アルカナ. It was a group artist project. https://twitter.com/yuzunonicomi/status/1704813113705644496
I love this image so much, has all my faves and well drawn, great taste nona.>cow board “voting” method
Iirc an anon voted the Hoyofair Anemo boys image as next thread pic in previous thread, which I almost used had I not seen the new thread already made. But oh well, we'll wait until this is at max posts.

I can only hope that they're relatively easy to collect like the sand grease pupas were for alhaitham when his patch dropped. They need to never add anything like cyno's scarabs ever again.
Don't feel bad, it takes all of 3 minutes to make a collage like that. Modern phone galleries have an option for it built in.>>323650

The Wriothesley one being another bug is already worrying me. Maybe it's a good thing he's not the first banner up. Cyno's farming was a nightmare not helped by you needing to do the world quest to access most of the farming spots.
Lyney's passive will be handy af.>>323660
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.
Thanks for bringing me back down to earth, nona. I remember another anon who really really hated seeing male characters be good with kids which felt like she wanted her child hating feelings validated kek.>>323665
Yeah, that doesn't help at all. I'd rather believe she's just a child who's smart af.

>>323667>I'd rather believe she's just a child who's smart af.
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.
Some questions are better left unanswered.>>323670
It's probably a recessive gene that Lynette got and Lyney didn't. I was going to say maybe it only appeared in women but Draff has the cat appearance too so it can't be that.

I love him so much it's not even funny. I literally was expecting nothing when he was leaked back in… April? May? I thought he was going to be a hobo/emo skinny fag. God I was so fucking wrong.
Can't wait for the update to finish to run to Forest of Meropide and see him already.
Whoops deleted cause I misquoted.
I haven't even tried him out yet but I liked him enough from the story that I wanted him.
I guess I'll save my Primos, don't need any more of these 4 stars. I just never know when It's really worth going for C1+.
Also, I thought that tower in the distance was the fortress, I guess not? Wonder how many more map areas there will be.
Now I'll actually go into the prison later, don't want to get stuck there for hours before doing dailys.
Curious about the new thing they added and if it will help skip commissions dealing with the cycle theory without having to go into someone else's world.

The fact that I’m skipping husbandos for a female archon, I’m ashamed. But I really need a Xinqiu sidegrade. I’m so sorry Neuvillette you’re too hot for this treatment
>>323741>his play style was weird
Agree. The play style is super fun, but I don't know how to position myself to use the water canon. I always panic and use it right away in front of the enemies and have to move around to hit, I look so stupid kekw.
That got me thinking… Venti + Neuvillette = insta kill? Cause Neuv can reach Venti's burst, right?

Got Neuvi, unfortunately going for his C1 was ruined by Dehya of all units. At least I got her the pull right after Neuvillette and I have Lyney so she's only 90% worthless. I'm gonna stop and wait for Wriothesley, maybe get constellations on his rerun.

I sure will complain about it in the survey kek
These new Fatui enemy girls look good but wtf is that negative effect? If active character gets hit once they keep losing hp until the get healed for a bit or they die? That's worse than corrosion because that atleast that stops after some time.
Tl;dr healers are important in Fontaine.>>323841>looks like it's all over
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>>323850
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.
Though I don't know what they were thinking when they know the only het fans allow is traveller x character? We'll see I guess
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. I feel bad for Genshin's writers because it seems nearly impossible to write a scene with two characters without people flipping shit about it being "flirting" or "shipbait" or whatever else.>>323859
That sucks, I'm sorry.

File: 1695849936304.jpg (333.98 KB, 1447x2048, F0aeOYZaYAEP1Z8.jpg)
That wasn't flirting. Wriothesley is just a friendly guy who wants to share tea with everyone. And yes I have seen the scene, you anons are malding over two people being friendly with each other.
Also I love Arlecchino. Her English VA is killing it. The character writing has improved so much since Inazuma, these characters feel like not just a single anime archetype.

These animations look great, will definitely get her.
What sucks to me is that her skill is stationary and don't follow the character, I just hope they have an Ayato burst range and not a small circle.
>>323958>she changes outfits
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.>>323957
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.

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.

So cute Ayato was so pretty too!
Both Clorinde and Wriothesley are being lightly pushed for gay pairings, yet some anons are having a meltdown because they interacted with each other in a way very aligned with their personalities. Get help.
On the other hand, I'm loving that all the characters in Fontaine so far have interesting personalities even without ships. >>324035
I love the soundtrack there too. None of the new soundtracks caught my attention until we went into the prison. Its atmosphere was done really well.

Anyone knows the context to why Itto's apologizing to Gorou in picrel?>>324022
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.>>324027
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
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

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.
This is such an insane, desperate cope to make coomer boob lady into something BASTE and PINKPILLED to appeal to lc users>>324073
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.

Yes, see picrel or here:https://genshin.honeyhunterworld.com/furina_089/
If you want to get more into the weeds of her ICD/poise/hit types, you can look here:http://www.yuhengcup.top/char
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?>>324130
Don't really like how bland/non-character she is but that normal attack looks fun.>>324133

It's not a radfem war against coomer otakus, they will always be more pandered to in a game created by men.

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.
File: 1696006656243.jpg (391.36 KB, 2048x1612, F635VHuaUAAUXdV.jpg)
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.

Maybe something like the volcanic parts in Fontaine? Where the bubbling water slowly kills you. >I wish Clorinde had had one of the better concept designs used for her

Right, I hated this game during Inazuma and all of the shitty waifu peddling while shamelessly short changing female players, but now there is peace in the middle east. It probably helps that some of the most important characters were created before the quality decline.

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.

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. (?)
Also, I have to say, what I'm not liking at all is the part about having to look for clues inside the Fortress while working
. It takes so much time and I'm tired, I wanna see my husbando doing cool shit and being hot!!

And I agree with that part being boring, I'm in the middle of it now and I can't wait to get out. Overworld around the Institute and the new areas in general are great though.
I love the female enemies that kind of look like Arlecchino and their JP tomboyish voices.

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.>>324721
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.

I don’t play on a laptop. I alternate between my iPad Pro with a controller and PS5. My PS5 runs the game with literally no loading times at all, it’s great
Nonas what did you think of today's Abyss?
I had trouble at first but when I went mono Lyney (with Kazu and Zhong) in first chamber and Baizhu burgeon on second I finished it easy peasy.>>324746
Xing and Mika?! Now I need interactions between them in game.

Any Abyss where I can use mono Geo one half and Cyno on the other is a good Abyss.>>324742
I've played on laptop. You'll need a cooling mat or a really good fan or your laptop will boil alive.
Can confirm the laptop overheating.>>324742
I use a gaming laptop and a ps5 controller. Idk the brand because my husband gifted it to me. There’s some good fans on Amazon. Don’t forget to have keyboard duster so you can clean them regularly.
I play with a ROG Strix, but I don't really recommend it because the fans make a lot of noise and the wifi drivers or whatever the hell they are called are fucking shit. Plus the keycaps break pretty easily.
It doesn't overheat, though, and I play Genshin with the max settings at 60 FPS. I have a GeForce RTX 3050 card and a AMD Ryzen 7 6800H. The most important thing when looking for a good gaming PC/laptop is the graphics card, in my opinion. I used to play on a Lenovo that had an nVidia GTX 1050 card and I couldn't even play it a 60 FPS. The storage was pretty good, tho.

Fontaine's OST is out, 96 tracks
FLAC download herehttps://mega.nz/folder/VdFjVKzS#fdxch98cmpENfsQnm7_D-A
Some very nice relaxing tracks in this release, listened through it all together this morning, lots I like to hum along to.

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.>>324945
Thank youuu!! I was going to wait to download a whole youtube playlist but you made my life easier. There are really nice tunes and I'm sorry I was being a doomer when Yu Peng left, these new guys are doing a great job.
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.
>>324985>Furina's spy circle
Sorry I must've missed it, when was this mentioned?
But now that you mention him trusting her, she probably stayed down with him as a form of comradery, which is nice.>very late into Fontaine
I wouldn't mind but please don't be a scrapped concept and that guy near Fontaine's Kathryn is where the concept went to.

AYRT and Intel is so shit. I had Intel in my Lenovo and when my NVIDIA graphics card broke I had to rely on intel, and oh god, Detroit Become Human
wouldn't even open kek… Intel and Mediatek are my archnemesis, I swear.
Nvidia is usually good, but you probably have a model with a card that is similar to the one I had on my Lenovo, which was pretty outdated.>the fans make so much noise
Same. Thank god my model has different settings for the fans and when I'm not playing vidya I can set it to "silent" mode and forget about them. They still wake up from time to time for god knows what, but eh. Sage for computer sperging.

I just finished the Archon Quest and I need to see more of this stupid trio. I love deadpan characters and them cracking jokes and throwing jabs at each other made me laugh a lot. I hope Mihoyo adds them to events and we see them together again.
(Sorry, reposted to add spoilers.)
File: 1696340539677.jpg (86.28 KB, 1280x720, maxresdefault (2).jpg)
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? >>325017
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? Like when you're in Neuvillette's office and read the document about Wrio's case and how Neuvi was quiet for a long time? Why was that relevant? And how Wriothesley tries to invite him to stay for tea only to basically get a polite but cold no.
They have barely any chemistry, it actually feels like they want to bait fujos to get that sweet, sweet free advertising through copious amounts of fanart

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 found the letter from Furina to be pretty funny, being happy Neuvillette was seemingly taking a day off and going out for once.
File: 1696353252087.jpg (1.2 MB, 2640x1080, Screenshot_20231003_092628_Gen…)
I stupidly pulled for Nuevi just cause and hot him in a 10 pull… I was saving for Wrio lol. I think I have enough for hard pity if I grind some, but this is so funny to me.
I'll most likely lose my 50/50 to wrio and get him at hard pity because this game hates me but I'd love to get her to boost both Wrio and Neuvi
And Charlotte to try melt with her and Lyney.

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?
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>Tighnari
Cares for Collei which is a troubled kid, is very kind in general.>Zhongli
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 >Itto
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>Neuvi
Same as Zhongli.
He's so sweet but not a husbando so he goes in the honorable mentions>Razor
He's too weird to notice you're weird.>Wriothesley
Probably treats everyone the same>Cyno
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>Scaramouche
He'd bully you>Tartaglia
He's too psycho to be nice to an autist kek>Ayato
Seems to care about being proper too much, severe mental illness doesn't go well with that
>>325386>would call you retarded
Tighnari, Alhaitham, Ayato, Scaramouche, Xingqiu (passive aggressively), Dottore, Xiao>would be polite about you being retarded
Zhongli, Albedo, Neuvillette, Kazuha, Cyno, Wriothesley, Lyney, Baizhu>would not notice you're retarded
Bennett, Chongyun, Gorou, Mika>is retarded/autistic
Childe, Itto, Razor
I don't know why but this whole post made me laugh
But what about Diluc, Kaeya, Heizou, Kaveh, Thoma and Venti?
File: 1696508525675.jpg (609.79 KB, 1863x2596, 20231005_142201.jpg)
This, plus Tighnari is too sweet, I agree with >>325398
that he would be patient and understanding.
I would also add Thoma as a good potential husbando, he is very kind, he loves taking care of others and making them feel welcomed.>>325386
Also, welcome! Glad you like the game, remember to take it easy and if you have any questions you can ask here!
>>325412>kaeya, kaveh, thoma
Polite about you being retarded (thoma would probably protect you)>heizou
Passive aggressive about you being retarded>venti
Pretends he's retarded>diluc
Borderline retarded, sorry Diluc fans (in all seriousness he'd probably be polite about it tho)>>325422>>325430
I play with English voices. Cranky English Tighnari would call you retarded but later say it's not your fault. Probably not the other languages so much.>>325438
says she's not likely before 4.5-4.6 but Navia and Clorinde switched places so it's not impossible she shows up.
>>325386>would straight up bully you
scaramouche>would make you embarass yourself
ayato, heizou, kaeya, xingqiu, alhaitham>would tolerate autism and take care of you
tighnari, thoma, baizhu, neuvilette, zhongli, kazuha, lyney, gorou, chongyun, wriothesley, albedo, venti (kinda)>they're already mentally ill
itto, cyno, xiao, kaveh, diluc, childe

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. >>325430
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 ♥>>325405
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. >>325466>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.

Thanks! I guess I will have to wait for more leaks but if nothing indicates that Arlecchino comes before 4.5 by the last Neuvillette banner day I definitely will pull for him!
I was gonna say "cute Tarta pic, you never see him with animals"
I'm so sorry Thoma baby kek>>325438
I caved and got him after 120 wishes approx. Having fun but I'll have so much fun if I win Wrio's 50/50 and can guarantee Furina with what's left.

File: 1696624640881.jpeg (411.25 KB, 1431x2048, IMG_1862.jpeg)
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
The 4 star system needs a rework for real. I was so unlucky with his cons I actually bought them from the paimon bargain shop thing.>>325686
Who's the guy in the pic?
Albedo! >>325707>this is what must be done, this is my duty and the archons do objectively have crimes to answer for
This makes so much more sense than him just simply ”hating archons”.
Thanks anon now I get it!
The sovereigns are all dragons right? The lore kind of reminds me of Dark Souls kek. Or is it in some world mythology that before gods, dragons ruled the world and games keep referencing it?>>325666
I'm not a very new player, I'm just unlucky with banners. XQ is always on some waifu banner I'm not interested in or on a male banner I have to skip to save for someone else. I didn't have enough starglitter for Paimon Bargain Xingqiu last month. Oh well, I'll have to wait. Sucks that I mostly use Alhaitham/XQ/Nahida/Kuki team in overworld to be quickly done with annoying mobs so his cons would help a lot.

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.
what do you guys think of fontaine's music so far? i don't think it's bad, but sumeru's soundtrack is still my number 1. i felt it was a bit generic, but that's probably because it's european-style music.
i hope they're able to make natlan's music as good as sumeru's.

So happy to see that Furina is good with Cyno teams (only if your Cyno team has Baizhu though)! To the anon who wished for a usable Cyno team, we have it now!! >>326015
The artist is the one who made the pretty Albedo watercolor art from last thread too! On Twitter: @Jotto75
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.>>326014
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.
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.
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
I loved his new gang so much.
But yeah I agree, for the time spent doing everything I felt the reward of lore and new information wasn't enough. Even though I love the Fatui trio seeing them again didn't make me as excited as I expected.
I know this is Genshin Impact, I know what it is, but all I want is just a little more edge,just a bit. I'm glad the Narzlongname world quest is offering it but I want more with main characters.

And the chibi art features Albedo!
I laughed at the Childe animations too. They were laughably bad. Should have used the visual novel style instead, or do some proper 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.

Furina's C6 and C2 have been swapped around. Her C2 now turbo buffs her ultimate while the C6 is the tiny infusion. Weird choice but I guess they're doubling down on her being swapped as soon as you do skill + burst. Her burst has a shorter cooldown and less strict energy requirements now too.
I know nothing about this game but is it the same in Japanese/Chinese?
I noticed in some games/animes when it comes to localizations they change normal talk to "respect my pronouns!" dialogue without the creator's knowledge.>>326250>burst has a shorter cooldown and less strict energy requirements
If she's coming home with little primos I have after Wrio then YESSS since my arti set for her has zero energy recharge.
I really want XQ skin, I find him so ugly. But even with another skin, his voice is still gonna annoy me.
As for Ganyu, I don't have her, but anything is better that the weird black boobs covered by Mysterious fabric that sticks to them but isn't leather nor latex and is matte. It looks like she has boob necrosis to me.

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.>>326462
For now go elemental mastery or %atk in her artis if you have any, and an %atk or physical sword.
Don't sweat it too much because you'll get Lynnette for free and she's a good anemo characters for your traveller to be Dendero.

Came here to complain too kek they really made us think we'll get interesting interactions between characters with very different personalities then it turned out to be an npc story again. 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. I know Mika will again be a scaredy cat with social anxiety next event he appears in. No wonder the few that learn and grow through the story are a million times more popular than all the others.
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.>>327431
I wish they'd stop with using the generic boring npcs so much.
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.>>327483
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.>>327483>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.
hxg_diluc has always been on our side, kek
I barely care about banner revenue anymore tho. Mihoyo is just gonna do whatever the hell they want with the game. They don't have competition, so they don't need to listen to their userbase.
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
But out of those 5 times he was wrong he was also correct over 20 times. Of course any leak is stc. I also don't get where you got this:>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
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

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.
Kind of a shame he struggles running solo. He definetly needs a shield/healer.

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.>>327960
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.
Nta but if I have enough crit rate is it best to go with 2 piece Marechaussee 2 piece Blizzard Strayer or stick with 4 Mare pieces? Or any %18 ATK 2 piece instead of BS?
(Just wanna double check before leveling up artifacts)
File: 1697639127164.jpeg (446.46 KB, 2390x2388, F7XQL1La0AEzYGz.jpeg)
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.

>>328050>Lyney needs ridiculously high personal damage because he's designed to not work with a lot of the best supports
What do you mean? Bennett and Kazuha are both BIS teammates for him and they are the best supports in the game. Xiangling, Venti and Zhongli work really well with him too. He honestly has a lot of options for being shackled to mono pyro.
File: 1697640640809.jpg (419.34 KB, 2250x1486, F4Du2CLWMAAenSM.jpg)
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).
>>327741>alhaitham isnt dendro keqing but ayaka
He is right lol. Calling alhaitham "keqing" is a casual dogwhistle. The only thing they have in common are animations.>>327547>mihoyo is just gonna do whatever the hell they want with the game. they don't have competition, so they don't need to listen to their userbase
NTA but I think lore events are still really good, but I wished they would return or could be unlocked by newer players. The fact is I really just don't give a fuck about npcs.>>328069
I heard Mika is good with him, he heals and increases attack speed. Also gives cryo renosance. Ofcourse the physical buff is useless but still
This pic is beautiful. I love this melodramatic Fatui thing fans wanted but never really got. The closest thing is in first AQ.>>328077
Iirc leakers said Furina's healing is worse than the average healer so maybe Wrio can use her with her many buffs.
>>328218>I love this melodramatic Fatui thing fans wanted but never really got.
I’m so curious, what do you mean by this? I felt like the Lyney Lynette situation fits that vibe >Furina's healing is worse than the average healer
Yeah and she is best in teams with a healer. Fontaine seems to be going for the two healing units in one team kind of set up

Look up "The Chalk Prince and the Dragon" and "Shadows Amidst Snowstorms" on Youtube. There's a lot of important stuff that took place in Dragonspine, they really flesh Albedo out. It's a real travesty that they and Unreconciled Stars aren't permanent story events.

Even as someone who kind of regretted pulling for Alhaitham because I don't really like his playstyle and how he's shackled to Kuki I still don't think he's Dendro Keqing. Play Keqing after Alhaitham and you'll be amazed at how awful and clunky she feels to play. Plus she deals so little damage compared to him it's laughable.
he's been as popular as astolfo with them for a long time now. that anon is coping hard, they should go back to /vg/ to post their unspoilered straight shota POV art where girl boobs take up a third of the screen. men would appreciate it more than we would.>>328527

The artist @nz__g, she's great
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.>>329295
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.
The image is now gone but the artist literally made her breast 2x as big>>328613
I know how she looks in game, i choose her as the mc. I don't mind if you post sexual fan art, it was just a comment about how a lot of people just change Lumine her appearance to be more sexual. >>329295
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. Like >>329303
mentioned you can use Zhongli and Bennet for shielding and healing.

So cute. Although it’s so interesting how incredibly irrelevant Inazuma and sumeru characters feel.
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. I didn’t feel like that at all with Sumeru characters. Even the Scaramouche and Nahida irminsul tree thing didn’t feel like it told us something groundbreakingly new.
Liyue was also completely irrelevant though. We just went on a shopping trip and then there was a very badly written climax, only for Zhongli to tell us he can't say anything about the archon war because muh contract.
The only nation that has future lore relevancy to Celestia is Mondstadt. Sumeru didn't give us many lore bombs in the main archon quest, but Khaenri'ah is below it and the interlude was pretty good.

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.
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. >>330782>Evil Killman
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.
On another note, does any know when Lyney banner reruns again? I missed out in getting him on his first banner. Forever sad I didn't get him on his first run.

They're doing it to force waifu collectors to whale if they want them all. Seems it worked well enough with the husbando collectors for them to be going this path but now for waifus.
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.

Real. I know moids would seethe if Murata, whatever Furina is, and Bronya were turned into manly ass dudes, but little boys are as dimorphic as adult men, so they lost nothing by genderbending Theresa. What does the game have against little boys anyway?

For me, no it's not the only metric, but it is a baseline requirement that they at least be cute or sexy. I want to like how the characters on my screen look. I wish for characters of all body types, male or female. They also need to be either fun to play or enhance the playstyle of one of my favorites.
For the vast majority of gacha players, it is expected that the characters you are able to obtain will be pleasant on the eyes in one way or another.

Been waiting since 1.1 for this shit. I know it's so retarded of me but I was imagining her like picrel. This happened with another character before, I can't take even Childe seriously now that I know his ass got taught fighting by a naked woman with the arm thickness of a toothpick. I wasn't expecting a buff woman model but at least the clothes could be used to give the weathered fighter vibe. I was hoping she would be an npc with a unique model just so she could be older too.
What the fuck? This is just Jingliu. It's literally a redrawn Honkai character. They even share the same character writing being a warrior mentor. This isn't even an expy anymore, it's just the same fucking character. Embarrassing. They went with the most unimaginative boring design, if they really had to have Skirk look like a young pretty girl the leftmost one in this >>332302

They changed her design? Or is it another one of those "alternate outfits" like Jean and Amber had?
File: 1699272327015.jpg (231.28 KB, 1440x1440, naviaumbrella.jpg)
Navia is so beautiful. Wonder if she'll end up using that umbrella to shoot something. >>333360>She has a male master/mentor herself and her relationship with him is pretty much 98% of her personality:
Seriously? This is the best they could come up with? Isn't she supposed to be based off mythical Scáthach? Between Arlecchino seeming to get the shaft for doing anything notable the archon quest despite being Harbinger rank #4 and Skirk being written like that, that's a pretty big let down for me.

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.

i got furina as i wasn't able to get wriothesley, she's pretty fun to play and i like her design, just wish she wore pants or ouji shorts instead of booty shorts
random unrelated question: what was your first screenshot of the game? i just found out that my screenshot folder wasn't gone after having deleted the game a bunch of times, and apparently this was the first picture i took when i downloaded it in 2020 lol
File: 1699445761611.png (3.97 MB, 2360x1640, 20230123233602.png)
This is my oldest screenshot kek
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 guess it was a little boring, but not terrible?
When is Natlan probably then, Spring?

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.
Archon quest spoilers: I liked it. The biggest lore bomb for me was finding out that the gnosis are related to the third descender and their death, what do you nonnies think that means?>>334149
I love her too! For the first time I actually want to roll for a female character, her design is so cute.

trannies love characters they can pretend are as useless and retarded as they are. "oh she's unemployed, eats macaroni all week and floods her apartment, she's just like me frfr!!! she's flat as a board just like me! girlfailure!" ignoring the fact that they look nothing like an anime girl does and that they'd never have the mental fortitude and social skills necessary to pull off what she did for 500 years.>>334316

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.
tl;dr never listen to troons and ignore them, they feed off of attention and starving them of it is the best way to make them mad.

I don't play Genshin but are there really any "implied" ships in the game? Lately, I see a lot of shipperfags claim that Focallette/Neuvifuri is canon. Can any lorenerd tell me if this is true, and if yes then what are the other almost canon ships?
In case this isn't bait, no Neuvilette/Furina isn't really even implied.
I'd say the most implied ships are Beidou/Ningguang, Alhaitham/Kaveh and maybe Raiden/Yae. But it's all very vague, the actual shipping is done by the fandom in fics and fanart. No canon pairs or ships in genshin unless it's some npc with another npc.
Not sure why you'd need to know if you don't even play genshin.
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.
said, I believe the most they have implied was the flirting with Beidou and Ningguang during the lantern rite event. >>334520
I don't think it's bait, if you are not a twitterfag and infight about ships a question like this is not big deal.
File: 1699616490616.jpg (277.56 KB, 1575x2048, matuka10101.jpg)
Thank nonas, that makes sense. I too had the impression that there cannot be any canon ships with playable characters as that would anger self-inserters. I occasionally lurk on /gig/ and twitter
and I was seeing many posts claiming them to be canon, so I had been thinking if there's any truth to it. I am not much into shipping so I really didn't post that in hopes that it will start an infight.

As anons said, only Beidou and Ningguang and maybe Kaveh and Alhaitham and even then there has to be plausible deniability because anti-gay laws in China. There's flirtatious interactions between some characters but nothing confirming they're official couples or anything and almost every character flirts with the Traveler too to appeal to self-inserters.

Thank you for posting the pictures, I hope you have fun!
They all look so nice, everytime they use genshin characters with different outfits in promo art I wonder why hoyo doesn't release more skins. I guess it's because they are making so much money releasing new characters, they don't even need to bother with releasing more skins?
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.>>334873

On the topic of skins, it would be nice if they just gave them the same designs they have in promos, honestly the promo designs tend to be loads better than the alternate skins we have now. Imo most of the available skins are kinda ugly/not better than the original maybe except Ayaka and Fischl. If I could have this skin on Yelan or Ning I'd use them more.

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.
She definitely gives yume vibes. I'm not even a shipperfag but this here is some intense bait. And the fact that hoyoverse commissioned it knowing they were feeding the delusion KEK.
I love how Fontaine is just pandering to women, scrotes wanted lyney to be another pornified femboy but he turned out to be another character for the girls.

i hope to see more female characters like that, and more male characters like wriothesley, unapologetic female gazey
File: 1700047833257.png (1.46 MB, 1333x1976, focallette shippers.PNG)
Which one are you
As a yume she's too bratty and woobyish to self-insert into and Neuvi deserves better.
Anyway just realized that the weird lines in the investigation notes that made me think Fontain had homunculi was just more references to the abyss and foreshadowing of all Fontaine people actually being Oceanids
And Lynette and Freminet ended up just traumatized children not actually robots.
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.

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 get why EN players think she was flirting with Neuvi when the voice actress tried so hard to sound sultry. Wonder if in CN and KR she also sounds so cringe.
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. Just like in Inazuma, Fontaine's world quests have a way better payoff than the archon quest.
Phew, got that autism out of my system. Thank god.

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)

No 5 star husbando banners. Save for the reruns coming in 2024!

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. And Arlecchino is simply a wife material for me, I've been daydreaming about her for an embarrassing amount of time to that Pugacheva remix from atomic heart
>>337216>I don't really do abyss or care much about meta
I get that! I rarely pull with abyss in mind. If you don't think about meta and since you have Neuvillette, Lynette and Fremmy, which character's playstyle did you like the most?>I've been daydreaming about her for an embarrassing amount of time to that Pugacheva remix from atomic heart

>>337211>Out of the current Fontaine characters, who has been your favorite in terms of gameplay?
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.>Are you planning on pulling Navia, Clorinde or Arlecchino?
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
Thanks for keeping this thread alive, nonnie

Should I build a phys Freminet with prototype archaic or would he be better with cryo reactions? I still regularly use kaeya for freeze/melt but I kinda want to replace him with Fremi in my main overworld team (because I'm really into freminet these days), but I also feel like the slow ass claymore attacks wont harmonize as well as Kaeya does with my xingqiu, benny and lyney
I'm kinda just guessing and talking out of my ass here since I'm still new to building but yeah, not sure what to do

I think Freminet's best team is a hyperbloom team or a team with Xinqiu, Electro (Kuki/Fischl), Kazuha or Rosaria/Kaeya or Mika. Keep him cryo, physical is dead in this game kek. Pretty much focus on off-field hydro, electro unit and then either a cryo buffer/off-field cryo/cryo healer.

>>337365>I feel like she was designed with something different in mind, like a navy captain or a court lady.
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?
Also why is Arlecchino the second strongest harbringer she hasn’t done shit kek. Just seems like a competent and kind lady.
>>337410>hasn't done shit
It's all backstory lore only stuff.
She apparently killed the previous Knave.
And killed the people who abused Fremi and Lynette.
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.
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. >>337425
Exactly, I expected her to be unreasonably cruel but she seems very level-headed and morally righteous.>>337513
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.
File: 1700664409347.png (3.61 MB, 1302x1824, F9CeVWWaAAA4aDJ.png)
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.
>>337547>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.
>>337211>Out of the current Fontaine characters, who has been your favorite in terms of gameplay?
Wrio, but Neuvillette is just too good to not keep using in abyss.>Which Fontaine characters have you pulled?
All the male characters, I will probably try and get Furina on rerun if I think she is a better replacement in some teams where is use XQ instead.>Are you planning on pulling Navia, Clorinde or Arlecchino?
I will probably get Arlecchino if she is an off field character. I really dont need anymore on field characters. Clorinde is really ugly so i will never go for her. I think Navia is pretty, but her character to me is just okay and she is geo.
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.>>337567>everyone hates dottore
Citation needed, lots of people like how unhinged Dottore is.
I hate Dottore because he choked a woman to death then made it look like she got killed by a rampaging meka.
Not to mention all the horrible human experimentation.
I wouldn't consider him 'morally ambiguous' in the slightest.
>>337558>only children who are perceived to have "potential" are chosen to join Fatui ranks anyway
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.

Is it just me or does he look like he has a stick up his ass
Yep it's like I said, they made him look very cool but he needs a bit more personality. I hope he appears is a few events and we get to see more of him like what happened with Cyno. >>337689
I think this is pretty though!

I notice that a lot of the archons always have an other “half”. Nahida was part of Rukkadevata, Ei was Makoto’s twin and Furina was Focalors’s human self. Since Venti and Zhongli are their original archon seaters it makes sense they don’t have another “half”. Makes me wonder what will happen because it feels like all the new archons are like the traveler.
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?
Exactly. She didn't even read the points >>337922
said that really aren't just baseless Furina hate but about the writing being disappointing and stupid.
I think all anons can agree that Ei is shit and that Nahida was better written, yet Nahida does
still feel forgettable

Let’s talk about Natlan! Pic related is a leak about Natlan that Liben will say in an event. He basically says nothing at all? Which is so odd for Liben to not drop hints about Natlan. At the end of the archon quest when we ask about the next nation, nothing we didn’t know already was mentioned. Thoughts about that anons? Why is this all we know about Natlan?
>Natlan has hot springs
>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!
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.

>>338315>there's a curse on the people of Natlan if they leave
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.
Alhaitham works great with Baizhu, XQ/Furina, Kuki. Nahida is not useless but not a must-pull like scrotes shill her. >>338340
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.

The missed potential with the longer shorts.

Some hairstyles. I like the short hair most.

Sorry for the Reddit watermark on this one. This was supposed to be her archon form.

>Haha, okay, okay… I know you can't wait to see everyone.
>You simply can't rush someone when they're doing their hair. Ah, it's been so long since the last performance… How did I do it last time again?
>Hmm… Something about it just doesn't look right. I know, why don't we ask the Traveler for a hand?
>My dear, kind, exquisitely-feathered friend — do me a favor and call over that blond Honorary Knight standing there in the distance, would you?
And of course there's a war in the comments about him not being dark enough kek

This looks like the same artist who made the butterfly/fairy Nahida concept art. It's sad that all these really cool concept arts get watered down so much.
