Genshin Impact thread. A thread dedicated to the best game ever!Smug fox is back!
Ah shit, here we go again.
If jannies want people to actually use /gig/ then maybe they should go and fucking clean it up (an impossible task)
>>1194028It's strange how much more normal vmg is compared to vg. Opening gig always leads to regret because of the freaks on there.
>>1194028You make a compelling point.
I think its because someone mentioned skin mods in the last one and the jannies lost their shit seeing lewd waifus
i miss Eula... hope Kaveh is in her banner too
>>1194342Very unlikely since she's coming on 3.8 and Kaveh is currently available (3.6)
>>1194342>wanting m*ales in your teamyikes
>>1194357damn , im really not keping up with the banners, but i really like how he looks tho i have no use for him in any of my teams>>1194367>afraid of maleslmao what a faggot
>>1194387>said the faggot who wants m*leslmao
New player, want to pull ganyu for waifu factor or are there better investment in 3.7 banner that would help make the game a breeze
>>1194504It depends on what team comp you're trying to go for. Ganyu is good when you have teams that prioritize freeze or melt reactions. So I would only suggest going for her if your aiming to get units like Mona and Kokomi for freeze reactions. As for melt, I would suggest getting Bennett or Xiangling in one of your slots.
>>1194504I think the most broken shit is always going to be including dendro in SOME kind of fashion. I have Ayaka and Shenhe myself, and they are considered a pretty damn strong combo, but they absolutely pale vs Nahida Nilou. It's not even close, and Nahida Nilou have jack shit investment in comparison, with cope weapons and all. (Ayaka, has her signature sword)Freeze is comfy, but remember that Ganyu is ranged. I could use Barbara for my Ayaka freeze (or Mona), but I'm not sure how well Ganyu would work with the less.. range having water chars. Also you will need 2 teams in some way anyways. No element will be solo carrying you, as eventually there'll be immune enemies. Gotta start somewhere, Ganyu is probably fine.
>>1194504Get Ganyu. There is no other archer like her, she's extremely strong.
>>1194367Skipping everyone in 3.7 except C2R1
>>1194387Well then you should get him while he's available. What's the worse that could happen?
>>1194504You have 3 dps options in the near future: Ganyu, Yoimiya and AlhaithamAs well as 3 support options: Baizhu, Yae Miko and KazuhaIf you're that new, its probably best to pick a dps
>>1194387I'm waiting for a banner with Eula and Raiden so I can pull on that weapon banner then never touch another one again.The Homa/Aqua one treated me too well but I refuse to pull unless it's two of my top tier waifus.
>>1195013I want EL so much for my Raiden. Never pulled on the weapon banner.
>could spend my saved up pity on Kazuha>know he's good and would probably make my favorite teams better>but just don't like him
>>1195151Who cares about meta bro this game is easy
>>1195166yet there's a shitload of retards who can't even 36* this abyss LMAO
>>1195174Abyss is shit anyway. Putting a time limit doesn't make it hard when the enemies are easy to beat, it just makes it annoying.
>>1195177the entire game is shit bro
>>1195178True, but at least it can be fun to open up the game and kill some mobs every once in a while, basically the only thing i do
>>1194504Get dendro and pyro to burn the enemies so you can have melt on your Ganyu attacks.
>>1195013I have some pity floating on the weapon banner from when I drunk rolled once, waiting for Raiden's wep + something else I don't mind getting.Though I might also just go for Arlecchino's if it's good/aesthetic whenever she comes out and I haven't broken the pity.
>>1195151>Rolling for metaGay as hell
>>1195151I rolled for him for meta reasons but now I like him better. Mainly the design
>>1195277That's some Stockholm syndrome shit, bros...
>>1195290It could be. But also they explored his backstory so much that at some point it starts making sense.
Disregard meta, acquire hot babes.
Would this team work?Yae/Raiden/Kirara/Barbara
>>1195513What kind of team you're trying to build tho? Assuming Hyperbloom, it kinda works but not that optimal. Kiara can only apply Dendro continuously if you use hold E (and take lot of field time) and Yae+Raiden are redundant for triggering Hyperblom. If you're going for Quicken because your Raiden are already DPS geared, Barbara might screw up the reaction.
Hope you've got enough storage, Chuds :^)
>>1196950>have fox C2I think I'll pull for Yoi
Does anyone even post here?
>>1197027I post in the nahida threads on /v/
i sometimes post feet
>cucked from c2 Yae by c1 DilucFking gay ass game
literally two pulls on Yoi's banner
>>1196950>>1197138I need to pull this slut but I'm only at 40 rolls fuuuuuck.
>The file size for version 3.7 on mobile is between 2.5 GB to 4.5 GBI'm not sure how phone devices are going to handle this game after several more updates.
>>1197297Oh shit she came home early
>>1197304I'm considering getting a 500gb sd card. It's like 50 bucks nowadays, and would solve this issue once and for all.
If I start this game right now, how long will it take me to get enough pulls for this thing? Also, will I be able to clear all content if I only pull for cute girls?
>>1197323>500gb sd cardIt might fix the storage issues that will arise in the future. But the performance is something I'm still a little iffy about.
>>1197304Buy more storage?
>>1197329You will have enough primos to get Miko and another 5 star, or lose to a 5 star then get Miko. Assuming you start playing right now. Will have spares as well to pull on the beginner's banner and then some as well to do whatever you want with them.
>>1197329>Also, will I be able to clear all content if I only pull for cute girls If you build them properly then easily yeah. Abyss might require you to have units of different elements though, but abyss is shit anyway. Less than 4 rolls per month from completing all challenges.
>>1197355What did it cost?
>>1197363In the UK it's 1600 GBP. Pre-order sale was 1400.
>>1197362Doubt anybody cares about abyss meme aside from a couple of very loud autists. The main game can be completed with pretty much any characters you want, even of they don't synergize very well.
>>1197318Based.>>1197329Unless you do psychotic levels of nolife grinding all storylines and world content, I don't think you can get two guaranteed 5 stars(what you need to absolutely guarantee the banner unit, first one is 50/50 to be her or not).I think you'd be better off just rerolling until you pull her first couple ten rolls.>Also, will I be able to clear all content if I only pull for cute girls?A lot of cute girls are meta and the content isn't that hard, so yes.
>>1197337Those say for example "Samsung PRO Plus microSD (MB-MD512KA/EU), 512 GB, UHS-I U3, Full HD & 4K UHD, 160 MB/s read 120 MB/s write.Is that so bad? I have no idea what internal storage has for speed.
>more TCGMihoyo, stop trying to make TCG happen, it’s not going to happen
>>1197395UFS4 is almost 2GB/s read/write plus cache (even faster). The SD cards are extremely slow.
>>1197318Congrats anon, shes great, although i use Fish most of the time
Fuck. How much do you need c1 for the cat? I got her after 20 pulls, but in the next 50, no more cat. Only 2 of each of the other 4 stars, Qiqi and Miko. I know I shouldn't complain, but... no cat dupe is bad, and getting Miko actually screws over the early coinflip loss. I don't really need her.I know the banner is still going for a while, but I should probably cut my losses. Kokomi is coming soon, and I'm out of shit. These early 5 stars only happen when you really don't want them, do they.
>>1197513It's just RNG bros. I got c5 cat in 70 rolls but spooked by Dickluc even though i want to c2 my Miko. Probably gonna save until hydro archon unless the rumor about Yelan on 4.0 are true. Need to get Yelan to c1 because replacing Fav bow with Aqua made her energy starved.
>>1197513I got C1 and nothing else in 80 pulls. Also got Qiqi and Miko, coincidentally
>entire patch focused on the card gameFucking kill whoever greenlit this
>>1197675It's in the chink's blood to double down on their bad decision.
SEX WITH FOGS
>>1197578IIRC the Yelan rumor was from one of the leakers who usually calls banners right, so I'm assuming that it is.
>>1197671I'm just coping now, that I don't want her shitty burst anyways. All I want is to pop nilou's water, Nahida's mark thingy and then go into her truck anyways. If that's shit, I'm gonna go back to DMC when it matters, and just enjoy her on the worldmap. She's very cute, that's what's important. And supposedly climbs faster. I still have almost all of Sumeru to explore.Will probably spend my leftover resin to get her up to notch. At least the new boss dies pretty fast to the Nilou team. No idea what the gimmick is. All I saw was a bunch of barriers and it feels like threshold damage taken when they break, with a billion phases it has to go through. But those barriers disappear so fast, I wouldn't know what these phases are. Tutorial also warned about some weird ultimate move, but either I dodged it with a burst, or it didn't do anything. Because I couldn't really do anything about whatever it summoned. Probably wrong elements.
So how do you make a team with Miko anyways? Nahida, Barbara and DMC/Cat is reserved for Nilou, so that's out.
>>1197825I only got her because she's sexy and has the best feet in-game (although Shenhe is a very close contender for this status). I also got her constellations because for some reason the game never gave me Fisch, and I wanted to C6 her. Did so on Miko's banner a year ago.
I hope she becomes a playable character.
if I'm doing the f2p hyperbloom thing (dendor mc colliett barbara lisa) who is supposed to carry the EM ? Lisa ?same question if I'm doing a normal dendro thing by swapping out lisa for something that doesnt make the reaction stronger
>>1197329I started two weeks ago and I barely have 80 rolls, and I nolifed pretty hardyou're fucked m8, don't listen to endgame players of this game they have absolutely no concept of how many permanent gems there are in the game.
>>1197803If you have Nilou you can make her work no matter what. Hell, I even use Candace on my Nilou team
>>1197883You don't need to, she's been "confirmed" by leakers as a cryo catalyst
>>1197975Yes its Lisa, Lisa is the one triggering the hyperblooms so she needs to have high EM. Lisa has a lot of EM naturally and can get close to 1k more easily therefore she's good for that team comp. And she applies electro a lot so she gets to trigger plenty of blooms>>1197976I got Raiden in 40 pulls when I started, sometimes its just luck
>>1197988Hydro claymore when
>>1197513there is literally no guarantee you'll ever get a specific 4* on the banner
>>1198047Not Focalors though (thankfully)
>>1197976>>1197329NTA but I rerolled and played enough alt accounts to know that you get enough gems to guarantee a limited 5* by the time you finish Liyue. Takes about 20-30 hours.
>>1197988She is so cute, I can't wait :3
>>1198072Fontaine can't come soon enough
>>1197825Probably Miko, Mona, Collei and...uhh, where's your Yaoyao?
>>1198072I really like her, I hope she's somehow useful
>>1197825Mona Collei Yae Miko and 4th a dendro (cat or DMC, whoever isnt in the Nilou team) or Kuki for more Miko bursts
>>1197883ugly ass skank, this is what we get?
>>1198133I'll get her regardless :3 She is just too cute!
>>1198134I'm not sure I'd want to go without anyone healing, so Kuki would make more sense? >>1198114Hopefully one day. I'm not doing standard pulls until cat is in there though. Anyways, apparently the cat boss changes elements, and today I had to play a BURNING team of all things for it. (cryo can't be done with dendro hydro) Never did that before, and my Hu Tao suffered so hard. Something gradually hurt her quite a bit, and I don't think it was the boss. This boss is a real sitting duck, getting stunned all the time as each barrier breaks in a second. Not sure I like this one.
>>1198164The boss's entire gimmick is "bring this exact team or die"While interesting for people with wider accounts, it just means everyone will wait for easy days (I'm a fan of the cryo/hydro/pyro days for my hu tao team).
>>1198164I killed that boss with my Hu Tao team when I was farming mats for Baizhu. That boss can have 3 shields of pyro, hydro, cryo and electro. If you kill each possible combination, you get an achievement.The gimmick is the shields and you need to break the shields to weaken it/take a large chunk of its HP. Each element has a particular counter element that will make the shield break fast. But pyro+hydro usually cover all of those. I think dendro is super effective against the electro shield though
>>1198162Hell yeah I'll get her too. I'll probably get everyone hehe
>>1198164Ah, you exchanged other char during CNY event then. I thought everyone would choose Yaoyao because she's pretty much brand new at the time. >I'm not sure I'd want to go without anyone healing, so Kuki would make more senseKuki works too i guess but the rate of dendro application are a bit concerning without second dendro. >(cryo can't be done with dendro hydroChange barb or one of the dendro on your Nilou team to either Kuki or Miko. Electro can shave cryo real fastI use Layla, Yelan, Nahida and Kuki and can do every combination without trouble.
>Design a competitive mode for TCG>Have no rewards At least give me some incentive to play your card game.
>forced to play the shitty tcgStop locking rewards behind this garbage ffs
>>1198319I don't get why people hate on it. I think it's fun.
>>1198278I actually started during the Hu Tao banner, so I had no exchange. Luck shitted her, and stayed. If I didn't, who knows what would be today. Still the cutest, even if she can't compete with the might (and easiness to build) dendro reactions. For new-ish players dendro feels so broken. Or at least Nilou Nahida.>>1198309Cute. I only raised Diona because she's cute, unfortunately not very helpful as I build her as the hybrid she wanted to be, sorta. Now she's shit at everything.
hi im new to genshit impactwhen will ayaka banner will show up again?
>>1198423So far she's been around once a year, and is gone this year already. Nobody knows for sure though. There's no clear schedule.
If genshin would give us a free 5 star selector (only including diluc, mona, qiqi, keqing ajd jean) I could finally get mona, and at that point i have beaten genshin
>>1198423https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vTX3oj9UkueTjtQY0wxd1NRsEZg5NqYltZ7C6rMjj3PvAknv_QkDTPGHyzJewAEdtYUcz2Ot4fmPGwj/pubhtml#Maybe next year
>>1198445Even not free I'd get it.
How long will ittake to collect every genshin without paying a single penny?
>>1198359I play Genshin to play Genshin, not a card game.
>>1198445Only standard character I'm missing now is Dehya since I got Tighnari'd going for Nahida C2
>>1198457not feasible unless you sell your soul to da wei. then he'll fix the rates for you so that you onlu need 30 rolls to pity and it's 100%
>>1198462>you onlu need 30 rolls to pity and it's 100%Holy moly, that would actually cut down my play time in half.
>>1198460I'm missing Dehya and Tighari. Want both, keep getting Qiqi'd twice in a row
>>1198319Reward is 130 primogems total which is enough for less than one wish, just skip it like I skip every Windtrace
>>1194022A very small part of me is beginning to regret rolling Long Dong Zhong. He’s too good, now I can’t make a team without him. I have an okay Kuki and Barbara but they can’t keep the team alive nearly as well.
>>1198470Windtrace is fun, but I agree it should have some high stakes
>>1198490Windtrace gets boring after a couple rounds. Hate how you have to do it so much just to get the rewards
>>1198472Take the dendro pill. Especially Nilou Nahida. Can't take that guy into this team, even if you wanted. I love that team, as it will never give me "FUCK GENSHIN AUTO AIM" moments. That alone would already be great, but it's also pretty dang strong with little investment.
>>1198472Johndong is the best but for the sake of variety and future corrosion-based challenges it's nice to keep options. For hyperbloom teams Shinobu is the best of the 4*s
>>1198359I like collecting my favorites. For minigames I can't stand the stealth-based ones and the boat ones would be 10/10 if the boat mechanics in this game didn't suck.
>>1198472>>1198535Leaktrannies made sure to say that Zhongli will not work with Focalors, so who knows
>>1198472Dodging is overrated anyway.
>>1198472There's no shame in using shields. It makes the combat comfy therefore is based.>good luck doing dps while dodging like an idiot against 4 consecrated beasts
>>1198066Why would someone just make up obviously fake shit like that, I don't understandweird sexual fetisthere's barely 10k primos in mondstadt and liyue combined, all explorations and story quests taken into account
I think Jeht is cute and wish she was playable
>>1198668>good luck doing dps while dodging like an idiot against 4 consecrated beastsWho needs a shield when you have an element that trivializes the combat in this game.
>>1198066https://streamable.com/5xb08qActually fuck you retards, time to put you to the wallAll pulls on the permanent banner come from free fates from AR and achievements, every single primogem and event fate was keptThis is over 2 weeks of playNow do you mind sharing with the class about those 10k primogems I apparently missed retard-sama ?
>>1198691>>1198679>dailies>events>big chests>quick achievement primos>side world questsYou can get all this in Mond+Liyue. Here's me running to sumeru for dendro tower during zhongli banner shortly after sumeru release on an another alt that i made for fun. All this is to say you didn't finish (real).
>>1198746>speedrunning sumeru towers>"by the time you finish liyue"god you weasels are disgustingthat's pretty much the game's entire trove of permanent gems, or 70% of it
>>1198770>didn't do everything that has primos attached>complain about not getting rolls?Don't forget to do the hangouts+character stories.
>>1198771I don't understand how it's possible to be too retarded to understand that by saying this stupid shit to a new player you're setting completely false expectations "yeah dude just speedrun the entire game and skip every cutscene and you should scrounge enough for a guarantee" has a much different ring to it than " by the time you're done with the second region you have a guaranteed pity". The second one is blatantly false.
>>1198682I hope we meet her in Fontaine
>>1198682she's too good of a design to be playable in this shit gamehave another catgirl
>>1198774>by the time you're done with the second region you have a guaranteed pityBut it's still true.
Does this apply to hyperbloom damage or is it only if you let the core burst?
Getting my ass handed to me in TCG is a surreal experience. It's just failure after failure with not a single win in sight. Is there any meta deck recommendations so I can at least stand a chance?
>>1198873Maybe just skip. I've never bothered with that mode, and if they don't scale that crap to your "player rank" (I purposely left as low as possible), I'll be doing exactly that myself as well.They fucking start you out with a deck including half of literally useless cards, like fucking spear cards without you having spear chars, same for other elements. I knew at that point this entire mode is fucking garbage, has no depth at all and should be ignored. If they can't even give you a normal starter deck without cards doing nothing, something went really fucking wrong with its design.
>arlecchino model being teased by leakersWe're in business now. Unless she doesn't get released in Fontaine like how we don't have doc yet I guess.
>>1198921Literally will pay if somehow I don't have enough primos. I NEED her!
Didn't lose a single coinflip lmao.
>>1198921her model being teased doesn't mean she's playable
So there are no meteor showers in Teyvat since there is no actual galaxy visible beyond Teyvat's atmosphere
>>1199066Isn't Zhongli's burst a meteorite?
>>1198929how much did it cost you?
>>1199066Might want to look up sometimes
>>1199066there was an event about a meteor showeryour screenshot is from it
>>1199123That event teased something ominous
>>1199191it was then followed up on in the archon quest for sumeru
>>1199224Really? I don't remember, what was it?
>>1199225the doctor talks to nahida about how the sky is fake
>>1199226Ah okay, I remember that vaguely. I hope they expand on that in Fontaine
>>1198359Card games are for autistic retards
>>1199191Yeah, that Scara was going to keep coming back to be an annoying fujobait faggot
Is it stated that Mona is from Fontaine in game or is it just a rumor?
>>1199321Well, her story talks about coming to Mond, and she writes for a Fontaine newspaper for cash.Mond vision frame, though.
>>1199321I wish I was a drop of sweat on Mona's beautiful ass~
>>1199357One the one hand I'm sad I don't have Kequing, but on the other hand, as someone playing the game for 3 months, I should be glad I have at least Mona. She was even my first standard banner, and first lost coinflip. Can't be too lucky. I hope for all people, the game will do a 5 star standard banner selector at some point. (even if it's just the starter ones, not the later added ones which I think had banners like Dehya)
>>1199394Should be. Took me almost two years to get Mona. I started playing the game because I like Mona! But Keqing a cute too, especially during her 2nd hit :3
>>1199414Does it come close to Mona's taunt? I don't even know how that taunts the enemy and not just downright kills them from a diabetes shock.
>>1199333Besides, Charlotte never having met Mona before confirms that she's not from Fontaine
>>1199394I got C1 Mona in my first couple months and I was so madShe's not fun to play and she looks 1000x better in art than she does in game.
>>1199432>Charlotte never having met Mona before confirms that she's not from FontaineDamn, guess I'm not from my country because I haven't met every single person that lives in it...
Is Ibis Piercer even worth upgrading? Feels like if you want EM, you rather want it without wasting time using charged shots. Also I hate charged shots. I also have a Stringless should I ever raise Collei.
>>1199469It's a Ganyu bow, if you don't have Ganyu forget it
>>1199498I'm about to R5 it, maybe tomorrow. I wondet if it would be better than Prototype R0. While Prototype gives her more ATK, the EM could also be useful, since she's always doing superconduct due to Raiden.
>>1199498Just gonna skip upgrading it then. I'll probably never get her.
>>1199333The vision frame is because she inherited her vision from her master who is from mondo.I guess knowing she isn't from Liyue/Mondo, it makes sense to assume Fontaine.>>1199414I took me over a year of daily play to get Mona and Jean while Keka was literally my first character. Standard characters are wild
Liyue doesn't cease to amaze me. No matter how much I explore it I always find something new.I wonder if Sumeru will be like this too once I have 100%'d every area there as well
>>1199534Probably, yeah. Also, yesterday I found like 10 chests in Dragonspine. Fun stuff. Beautiful place.
>>1199531>w-why are you staring at my ass, while I'm hitting you with my sword? b-baka!!
>>1199534Heh, just today I found a ghosty during my Liyue dailies. Yeah, still do those there. Least offensive. Some of the parkour in Sumeru is shit (and LONG), and no way I'm gonna do Inazuma.
>>1199599Liyue dailies have too much dialog
Holy shit, how fucking retarded are the game designers in this game sometimes? Here, have a hidden domain after beating some withering, called a "dream", where you have to get 3 thingies or whatever. Turns out it's done via a "domain".And then they require you to have a fucking BOW character, but you can't change your party because it's a "domain". How does that go to QC? You basically have to restart the entire thing.. hoping you at least don't need MORE than that. I hope that idiot was fired... but seeing this still in the game, probably not. This is so unnecessary. Makes me the most angry, when basic stuff like this goes so wrong.
168 rolls on the weapon banner, got two kaguras and one pulse. Lisa and Yoi are my favorites so both of their BiS weapons being on rateup together was perfect. Wish I hadn't needed the full epitomized path for pulse but at least I got enough akuoumarus for R5 along the way.Thankfully the leaked banners for 3.8 don't interest me at all so I can recover my primo funds before fontaine.>>1198929Based.
>>1199655First of all, calm down wtf. But yeah that's annoying, happened to me like twice
>>1199656I got Kagura in 60 wishes, that was my choice so I'm happy. I wouldn't be too upset if I had gotten Thundering Fury instead. But anyways you were very lucky cause you got useful weapons instead of skyward shit
>>1199668Why did they make her have both similar hair and clothing colors to yanfei? Now I will forever see her as a yanfei clone. Such a shame because she had potential.
>>1199655You can change your party at the resurrection door though
>>1199660As a game designer your job is to pay attention to soft locks of any kind. And this is one. It's the most basic (and easy) part. Failing to see that already means that game design isn't your job, but with a game this big that should be caught by.. SOMEONE. Completely disregarding this shows a sad state of the game, something that just really doesn't need to be. It's so.. unnecessary. And if there's one thing making me mad, then that. It'd be one thing, if it'd happen once, but this game has too much of that. Unnecessary and easy to fix issues, that are however some of the most important things to get right in a game. Softlocks are the biggest taboo in game logic. The player should under no circumstances get hard stuck and need to redo an entire level/scenario from scratch/reload the game.
>>1199673There was none. It wasn't really a normal domain, as I never got a domain screen either. Maybe there was a hidden one, can't say. Probably.
>>1199670She came from Honkai
How many gems are actually locked behind the shit card game?
>>1199716Not that many anon, not really worth rushing or playing it at all if you are not interested.
>>1199716It's worth doing the main quest, and maybe dueling in Mondstadt so you can finish it. Also, inviting characters can be great. For instance Ei is so wholesome throughout the duel.
>>1199716If you mean the current event, you don't have to win to get them. In general, no idea. I never got past rank 2. Mind you I have yet to even lose a match. It's not that bad early on. The event stuff I also just play on normal, and it's not difficult. Hard doesn't even give event tickets for the event shop, so I didn't try. You don't build your own deck, but pick 3 from the "recommended" packs, that end up your deck.
Being a free to play in a pay to win world is an actual nightmare. How do people do it without using Welkin?
>>1199668Should have made her wear blue to really sale the evil Yanfei vibes.
>>1199915The game isn't pay to win though
>>1199915It's not pay to win. You can literally do every quest by just using the characters the game gives you.Lumine, Noelle, Amber, Kaeya, Lisa, Barbara, Xiang Ling, Collei. You don't have to, because you get enough primos to get at least a 5* character every couple of months, but it's possible.
Inazuma welcomes me in my first day of dailies in here
>>1200020Idk, I personally like Inazuma.
Inazuma was soulSumeru is soulless, which makes perfect sense since it was based on the middle east and india
>>1200048Sumeru had a really solid idea but the entire balladeer plotline ruins it. The sidequests for the forest and newest region are also too busy sniffing their own farts.Jehtt's story was pretty great, though.
>>1200048Sumeru is great. The areas are getting progressively better. Except for whoever came up with balethunder in Inazuma without QC testing, I hope they got sent to the concentration camps. Actually most of Inazuma sucks but Watatsumi and Enkanomiya are beautiful. Still, the best is the Chasm.
>>1200050>the entire balladeer plotlineThat was the peak. Unfortunately for moralshitters the Harbingers run this game
>>1200059Traveler and all the archons will rape the harbingers in the end. Mark my words.
>>1200059It *could* have been good but the balladeer himself is a shit character and his ties to the entire plot were so contrived it made me roll my eyes.Sumeru could have been a good simple "wow the academia is corrupt" plot but we had to have some shonen boss to cap it off.The stuff with Wanderer now isn't as awful as I expected it to be but he still feels entirely forced and it will take years to make this feel like a natural course of events.
>>1200014Please don't talk like that. Nobody cares about things being POSSIBLE. It's about being fun.I'm sure it's also "possible" to solo everything with MC. Doesn't mean anything. It just makes it sound like a sad excuse.People paying nothing need to be more patient and be smart about what to pull. It's definitely designed in a way where the 5 bucks per month are very enticing. There's no denying that.
>>1200069Well, you get enough primos to roll for plenty 5* by just playing. It is annoying of you happen to want a standard 5* , they can be fairly difficult to obtain, but the ones who get fratured is easy. Just be a bit smart, try and get a good DPS.
>>1200077That's what I said. You don't have the luxury to do, what for example I did. I don't regret spending for Nahida and Nilou, given how much fun they give me. And without the fish girl, using Barbara, the new cat is absolutely awesome with this team instead of DMC. Pop your two water auras after Nahida's skill, hop in your cat mobile and circle around the enemy. That's basically what I did anyways, now I need way less stamina, and apply dendro on hug as well.Free to play is often done because people have no real disposable income, or simply don't want to spend stuff in a game that includes gambling of sorts. I can respect that. But it comes with its downsides, and almost every gacha gives you really good shit for really little money. The only gacha I play, where I feel like I get the sub to support and not for the gains is Blue Archive.You CAN still deal with it, but it can definitely be harsh, especially if you aren't playing the game that long yet. For a newish player the last month(s) had some really good combo banners.
>>1200069>That time when Ningguang told you that your shiny new toy only makes you happy in the moment you receive it and no one listenedThe issue is not p2w, the issue is you are an addict who hates missing outFor addictive personalities gacha will be predatory no matter what, but you don't need every character to have fun
>>1200020The worst regional dailies in my opinion but I managed to get 90% of the stuff
>>1199965>>1200014Except it is. The definition of P2W has nothing to do with whether or not it’s possible to beat the game without using a cent. It’s the practice of buying in-game items that give a player advantage over others. That’s why micro-transactions like the battle pass and Welkin exist. They act as shortcuts for players who want to work less but still have the advantage of gaining access to more.
>>1200178it's not a pvp game and doesn't have a leaderboard so the argument is moot anyways
>>1200209>it’s not a pvp gameIt doesn't matter. Because, in case you hadn't noticed. You can still P2W over thegrind, the gacha odds, the character powergateand have faster clear rates in theAbyss. Whether it is worthwhile depends on the individual. >doesn’t have a leaderboard We have a leaderboard for speed running the abyss.
>>1200272You have a community leaderboard, there's nothing in game about it.
>>1200284Your point being? Even if it isn’t in-game. It’s still a leaderboard that people participate in.
>>1200308Okay? It still has no effect on the game and 99.9% of players will never see it.It's meaningless.
Still have yet to see a good Yae post.
>>1200383Be the change you wish to see
>>1200272Nobody cares about the abyss.
>>1200272>Game doesn't have a paywall>Noooooo here are all these hurdles I made for myself that are not relevant to anyone who can just keep playing the game for free without having to worryDefinitely a gambling addict. Keep supporting the company though
>>1200544>Game doesn't have a paywallIt doesn’t need one since they already have plenty of ways to monetise their game. >here are all these hurdles I made for myself*the game made for you >that are not relevant to anyone who can just keep playing the game for free without having to worry.The thing is, it’s still a gacha. So they know how to tickle someone's fancy by intentionally designing every part of the game to entice people into opening their wallets.

>Eulawhy would you want an event for an NPC
>>1201062I didn't find her fun to play so I did not roll.
>>1201050One day we'll get an event explaining us the game's eula. (end-user license agreement )It's gonna be the longest Genshin event to this day, and will be moderated by Hu Tao, who expertly showcases what is all NOT allowed, and everyone's beloved lawyer Yanfei explaining exactly why.The final conclusion of this event will be, that it's better to be dead, and Hu Tao will get ready to welcome many new customers, the reason she collaborated with Yanfei in the first place.
>>1201071Sounds neat. Which is exactly why they won’t do it.
>>1201062Yoooo, what’s with the new character leaks? I heard we are getting a cryo claymore user. But the twist here is that she’s a physical dps.
>>1194022Got a garbage character, going to delete this terrible game now.
Anyone knows wtf is this? Diluc also had it but after redeeming it I didn't notice anything different.>>1201372Which character?
>>1201395I think if you use a card a lot, you get some shit for it, like a fancy effect? Don't remember. I don't really play the card game past the bare minimum. (aka I don't rank past 2, and sometimes do 2 adventure matches for the weekly pass)
>>1194022R3 Deathmatch for Tao~
>>1201474I'm sure your Tao will have a lot of fun with it anon!
This abyss is cancerStill 36* but the closest I've gotten to losing it in a year
what's new this cycle?
Is this the first time they've done a world exploration survey?
>>1201749>can't even do the first chamberHell on teyvat.
>>1201395I think you get moving cards when you reach lvl 10; And reaching lvl 10 with a bunch of chars give you achievements or something
>>1201395Stupid ass Candace
>>1202321Nah you can get moving cards as early as rank 5 as long as you beat the character to get their regular card and then spend 4k coins on the moving version.I figured it out tho, what I redeemed was a holographic version for their talent cards... that I don't have but I do have Tao's now so its a matter of time to get that one too.
>had fox since her first banner>pulled c1 and c2 during the first rerun>still haven't finished ekanomiya for the boss matsanyone else
>>1202434No. When I pulled Shenhe, I just started with Inazuma, and after clearing the first island to an extend, I said "fuck it" and rushed over to do all the stupid garbage the game wants from you to unlock the boss.This game really has some REALLY bad design in that regard. Why in the fucking world would you lock a boss necessary for using characters behind such an extremely long quest chain. Like holy shit.Is there ANY other like this? Would be curious. I haven't encountered any, but that doesn't really mean anything. I don't try to unlock/fight bosses that I don't need.
>>1202462i guess the ruin serpentbut they're generally fine about making world bosses accessible without prequests
>>1202462>waaah i don't need game progress i want everything unlocked>waaahh
>>1202474Needing to do shit before you can use a char you pulled is extremely bad game design. If you truly can't grasp this extremely simple concept, I pray for this world for you do never have any deciding power in any creative works. You'd utterly suck ass.The entire Inazuma being locked is bad enough already. That boss is just adding salt to the wound. If Fontaine is actually locked behind beating Sumeru.. this game will just fucking die, as any new player is gonna be so damn fucked if they don't inform themselves outside of the game if they can use a char they pull or not. It's absolutely retarded. Having gacha experience isn't protecting you from that either, as basically nothing else pulls that garbage. For very good reasons.
>>1202482You can literally just walk anywhere but Inazuma lol
>>1202482>waaah mario is bad design i just wamt to start the game at 8-1>waaah why do i have to play the game>waaah
>>1202350Candace is the prettiest but this game hates brown people, only Kaeya is allowed to be usefulThe new mummy girl will probably also be garbage
>>1202474>>1202538Typical room temperature IQ reply.
>>1202462You could have just left her at level 40 and played the game normally. Story mode's level of challenge is bland as fuck if you haven't noticed and Shenhe's only purpose is to prop up Ganyu and Ayaka anyway
>>1202644Completely aside of it being possible or not, that isn't the point. It's NOT FUCKING FUN. It's not hard to understand that a new player has only a limited pool of chars, and a 5 star is something rare. You want that char to be useful, and not having to be carried around like a useless brick until you maybe finally perhaps find the fucking boss.It's just a shit concept, that rightfully so doesn't happen elsewhere. At this point I myself don't care anymore, as I have access to pretty much everything. But regardless of that, if you are new and pull Kirara as an example, like what the fuck is the new player gonna do if they wanna use the cute cat? Run through the entire damn fucking world to reach the boss, that's also really anti new player with its barrier shit?They put 0 thought into this, and just because some people think that's fine, I simply don't think so. It's shit. Pulling chars you can't naturally use shouldn't be a thing in any gacha. No matter the rarity. No matter what kind of weird workaround an experienced player could do (they are fucking new, not experienced). And one of the best parts of starting late is that you can use chars for content older players couldn't. Or so it should be. But Genshin really hates that, for reasons beyond me.The best way to play genshin is to rush the main story, and ignore the entire exploration and side-content until done. And that is a damn shame.
>>1202666You should just uninstall the game.
I think that in most cases it's annoying but fine/understandable, since you can just run across the map until you get to the place you need early, but the ones where the boss that drops the thing is locked behind its own separate involved quest chain is lame. Naturally you don't *need* to level them up that far for story mode, but the game is heavily advertised on characters specifically. Downloading Genshin purely because you wanted Yelan or something, getting her, and then hearing about how to level her up must suck. I think the simplest "fix" would just be to make character trials include two pieces of their ascension material so you can get them to level 50 maybe?
>>1202679Downloading Genshin purely for Yelan, means you won't even be at an AR able to level her up to the point where you'd need boss drops. What are you on about?
>>1202679>YelanUnlocking the Chasm isn't that difficult, anon.
>>1202686>>1202687That was a bad example desu, that's on me, I remembered wrong and thought that you needed to do the Dain quest there to unlock the chain that unlocks the serpent. I do think that it's going to start being an issue if they put any bosses behind the next couple countries though.
>farm that worthless clam set for koko when she released>now have to farm an EM set for heri dont have the strength to go on
>>1202694why? there is literally no reason whatsoever to make your teams stronger. the game has zero difficulty.
>>1202697an EM set will just make things more comfy with dendro
>>1202694>all the artifacts available from transmutation have gotten powercrept into oblivion>have to go back to doing it raw without any consolationstill haven't gotten a single decent eosf feather
>>1202666Wow imagine getting that mad because a game wanted you to play it a little.Thinking about it, if you were that desperate you could also go to another player's world and ask them to carry you, but that's also too much effort.I dunno, whenever a new character is released at the same time as a new area that their materials are in I just roll with it even if it means waiting days for a drop to respawn, but that might be too much for some. The game likes to remove anything difficult if enough people complain, maybe boss drops will one day be added to stardust exchange or something.
>>1202856You don't understand that a new player doesn't have already explored the entire world, do you. You just don't want to understand.Let me put it like this: Imagine you get a DLC char for mario bros. You start the game and then get told you can use this DLC char once you are in 8-4.That's what Kirara is to new people is right now, just that they don't even get told. Yes, old people don't care. For old people it's just a little extra gameplay. But for new people it's the entire fucking world with hundreds of fucking hours content if they don't just google the location and blind rush it. This shouldn't be hard to understand. But I guess you just really don't want to, so I leave it at that.
I just started Persona 5 and they gave me free DLC for team members I don't even have yet. I'm super pissed about this so I'm gonna skip the first 30 hours of the game
>>1201749>abyssPure cancer. I also got the 36*, and it was easier than I expected, but I needed quite a bit of luck in the positioning of the Constipated Beasts in 12-3-1.12-1 was much worse, and needed a very specific team to make it not impossible because of the high damage threshold and the elemental application requirements.I really hope Fontaine hits us with simpler Abysses instead of ever growing HP values and elemental application algmost impossible to f2p or new players (which I can NEVER expect to make to 36* in this abyss before one year of semi-casual playing).
>>1202936This is one of the most disingenuous comments that I've ever read
why chinks hate Nahida?
>>1203332Looks like men forgot to vote
>>1203339she's actually extremely hated by men.Why? For "cucking (You) with Wanderer", her views also become contradictory before and after meeting Wanderer and having a shitty second story quest. A 15k words essay/manifesto regarding Nahida's poor characterization blew up in China recently and got a lot of praise and support.https://www.zhihu.com/question/599522659/answer/3018204656
>>1203332>xinyan at 9thhow
Genshin numbers downHOYO treasury go up
>>1203504Give it a few months. There is absolutely no gameplay in SR. You can't even jump ffs.
>>1203340>her views also become contradictory before and after meeting Wanderercan i get a qrd? i never bother reading shit if that doll faggot appears
>>1203924Given how awful vertical works in Genshin (hit detection, jumping, climbing) I'm pretty happy they don't have that in just to have it in.
>>1204147>t. can't shoot an arrow to save his life
>>1204159What does an arrow have to do with it? I don't even use bow characters.I'm talking about shit like mining in Inazuma being impossible because Diluc misses half the fucking swings. And that also translates to combat issues vs smaller enemies and whenever vertical is a thing with elevation differences. Let alone that genshin has a climbing fetish, so chars always love to try and climb on even the most dumb things, like random poles, fucking up combat. Climbing is also often shit because it's a coinflip if you can stand on something or not. Visually there's no distinction. Sometimes it feels like it depends on the day of the week.Finally it sucks ass how the wings don't work half the time. As a really new player (day 1) that actually got me killed, till I got used to button mash. It has likely something to do with the game not wanting you to use them if you are still "on the ground". You get used to it, but it's so meh.Vertical and genshin are definitely not working well together. I've made the experience that the more flat an area is, the better it works.
