>Anyone doing a wishing ritual btw?
Yes I will! I won’t involve anything with Ei though, feels like Scara would avoid my pulls if I do kek. I made him his own area in my teapot! He likes bitter tea so I made a seating area for him to drink the with Aether

I thought of throwing Raiden to her death from top of the Venti statue as in bye bye electro hello anemo but you know what, you're right he'll probably come at the 180th wish because she's in my party kek

But I really love your ritual I think I'm being inspired (also read: stealing) by your idea and add all the anemo characters I have around that table

Chiscara actually exists?! My two favourite characters nice

I'm sorry traveler/scara, Kazu/scara, Mona/Scara and Chi/scara(if you gorls even exist kek) but Scaramouche\his old colors are the one only otp
I'm joking in case someone mistakes this as serious but like can we get his old colors/design? I played his quest and the vieled curtains thing on the back of his hat are so cool I wouldn't mind paying for a skin. The blue design is too calm compared to his bratty behavior

Also hoyo-kun where the fuck is my Alhaithem drip

You can wish at any time you have enough but beware of exchanging your primo gems for the blue wish since it is not worth it. Happy wishing, hope you get him.
And since you're new you have tons of quests and definitely will have enough funds to get him!

Chiscara is a huge ship, it has existed since the very first time Scara had an appearance actually

Honestly it is sad that Childe has no memories of Scara anymore. The interlude quest fucked up the dynamic between the harbingers

No. 261545

So…. I really dislike the 3.3 plot.

I also dislike Scaramouche's backstory. It sort of feels like they had one backstory in mind when they plotted out Inazuma and then changed their mind when they were writing Sumeru? The lore of Katsuragi telling him to hide his connection to Raiden seems pointless. The lore of Nagamasa telling him he has be dealt with in a certain way because he's neither man nor machine is also pointless. It sounds like everyone at Tatarasuna knew his connection to Raiden and knew he was a puppet all along. Instead of being complicated characters who purposefully decided to pursue a dangerous goal because they wanted to appease Shogun, "Inazuman blacksmiths were totally all innocent and it was all Dottore this entire time!!" is a total copout. Also. Why even bother making Scaramouch have all these connections with other characters just to erase it after? Total bullshit.

No. 261549

fatui bad, everyone else good
it's always the bad fatui. elementary level writing

No. 261550

Yeah anon I agree. They should have made sure the memories and past was inserted back into the Irminsul. As a way to acknowledge that the past has to exist for him to move on. Making Scara remember everything while he ceases to exist in the past events is just tragic? So the little boy never met Scara and died alone? Like wtf no way in hell Scara would want that. This also just creates so many plot holes. Dottore is so skillful now because he experimented brutally on Scara for years. Now there is no plausible reason for his great experiments if he never met Scara.

Exactly but they'll pull a "actually doctor is different and his brain blah blah" to cover for bad writing. What was the end goal of this decision anyway, do one of these spooky breaking the 4th wall by messing with meta stuff like removing lines? Pft

Ignore this Canon, it sucks

No. 261567


That part really confused me. Did new events happen after Scaramouche deleted himself and replace the true events? Or did the same events happen and got remembered and recorded differently?

Scaramouche said he wanted Raiden Gokaden descendants/Kazuha to know the truth. What happens when he or the Traveler tells Kazuha the truth? Is that going to be consider corrosive/forbidden knowledge now?

No. 261575

I see so many people complain about wanderer’s gameplay on reddit and tiktok. Many people say that it feels like his kit is “incomplete” and feels like they are testing a new gameplay style to use more in the future. I have also heard people complaining about ult animation being too long. Ngl, all these complaints make me feel a little better about losing my 50/50, however damn, is he that bad? I’m a husbando>meta type of player but still i feel like there are way too many complaints about scara’s kit

Ei’s kunikuzushi line is fucking gone. I hate this. If one more character gets nuked by the irminsul im leaving this game AAAAAAA

No. 261579

The only thing I agree with is that his burst feels way too long. There is an awkwardly long moment right at the end of it that should be half a second shorter or something. Other than that he is incredibly fun imo. Honestly, all the shitting on him might just be moids coping because Scara is ridiculously popular.

No. 261593

He's just not what you would expect, he's good and can be a really good dps but I think the huge building up of teasers, previous story stuff and all of that made him look underwhelming now
If he's your fave try to get him! But as a dps? Eeeeh Itto, Ayato and Raiden are better especially if you have Kazuha for the last two, but you know husbando > meta soo (I knew he'd be slapped around mid air several times and die but still got him kek)

After testing some artifacts Shimenawa proved to be much better than his new set, or any halves.
And don't even think about rolling on the weapon banner nonas, remember to save for Alhaithem!

No. 261597

I think his controls may take some getting used to? With most characters, I normally hit E as soon as it becomes available so I still accidentally cancel his flying state all the time.

No. 261598

I really like his kit, I am playing him in overworld doing those weekly bounty missions ect even tho he is only lvl 60. i'm currently using him with XQ, Thoma and Yunjin. I dont worry about fueling his burst since you can spam his E since it has such a short cooldown. I saw some people complain about staggering but i have had no trouble yet, but then again im playing with a team that has good shielding. His auto attack has really good targetting btw so he pretty much doesnt miss (side eyeing Yoimiya right now).

Im also running Shimenwa right now but theyre all lvl 0 kek. Do you know if i should build him EM or Atk? Currently have some atk% on him but i think EM would be pretty good to.
>And don't even think about rolling on the weapon banner nonas, remember to save for Alhaithem!
To late for me kek, but im not f2p so i will get Alhaithem for sure.

I keep forgetting how to go straight up, however since i play Childe i do not spam his E.

No. 261602

Don't tell me what to do + Alhaitham is ugly and boring. I got Itto and Scara's weapons to make them look cooler and they do. Ushi hits for over 120k with Gorou now.

Congrats on weapon and congrats on future alhaithem!

I tried both since I thought create a taser driver but he's just like Xiao, loves his attack and crits more than harmony with others
I'm thinking Him+Frauzan+Zhongli+Albedo will be my next try in abyss (fuck those dogs)

Congrats to you too! Your Itto is now officially aestheticly pleasing (As if I need more temptations to roll on that banner. But no more spending on gacha for me kek)
Now I'm curious, if Alhathoom is ugly who is your ideal husbando?

The vase breaking thing was meant to show that the original events still happened, the tree just erased people's memories of the truth. The god that's probably Istaroth said as much, that the flow of time can't actually be changed and any attempt to do so is as insignificant as a squirrel running into a tree.
Based Zhongli told us as much as he could without breaking his contract as soon as the Traveler asked. Those who are meant to witness will witness. Those who are meant to remember will remember.
I'd like the old outfit as a skin too. The colours were just really striking on it. I don't hate the new outfit anymore but the old just looked really cool and suited Scara better.

I don't see any other character asking to hold the travelers hand (and actually holding it) twice. Ship whatever you want of course but the anons are right, the other ships have a lot more canon lore behind them. Even the scaramona fan art sucks unfortunately.

He is not bad at all actually. This is doomposting from moids again, don't believe it too much. Scara will never be S tier but for a catalyst he is good. His attacks are super fast and quite strong.

No. 261673

My only issue is that he's another shield shill character really, which is just the curse of hypercarries. My closest comparison since I didn't have Ayato is Yoimiya, and she needed a shield too or else she felt a lot worse. Otherwise I really do enjoy him even if anemo DPS is a meme because his buffs at least want other elements in the party which gives him neat teams unlike Xiao who was limited to Zhongli and Albedo for forever.

No. 261678

He's not at all bad. He's extremely fun to play as and his hovering mechanic breaks the exploration aspect completely. People are just coping hard, anyone who calls themselves a metafag should own Zhongli anyway so that takes care of the shield issue. So far playing with him I haven't had problems with enemies knocking him around though.

I'm so over stoic and brooding characters. We've already got Diluc and Zhongli who still manage to be a little soft, but the only things Alhaitham has going for him are being tall, tiddies, and being 1/2 of a new gay ship. Stoic men are just too boring to me right now. More power to whoever wants him, though.
>canonised because sex slavery
Wait, wut? Is this in his new story that was released this patch? I'm really really behind so I'm missing thing, and if this is true, adding that with Collei's torture, I want Dottore's head on a stick and his brain fed to Timmie's birds.
Scaraether and Scaralumi please!

No. 261737

obviously there was no mention of actual sex slavery. but he let dottore perform brutal experiments that nahida called torture and that signora considered worse than expeditions to the abyss. hardly a stretch to imagine he'd let dottore abuse him in other ways too

No. 261738

Alhaitham isn't stoic, he's hilarious, sassy and the right kind of autistic. I can't wait for his interactions with Kaveh.

No. 261740

I usually go with darker themes and that seems reasonable, but does Scara seem like the type to allow someone to sexually abuse him? It feels like he has too much self-worth for that (despite the going through all that shit for his plans). I'm just feeling too soft rn, and I feel bad after everything he went through so I'd at least want that to not have happened to him, y'know? (But Dottore probably would to him and Collei because at this point what wouldn't he do?)
Since it's not officially canon I'm going to ignore the possibility kek

No. 261741

Exactly lol I’m convinced that some of the nonnas here don’t bother reading the story because alhaitham is not stoic at all.

Because Mona sucks and it's a childish spite ship like Ayato and Yae to begin with.

Because the character is an ugly coomer waifu whose literal existence annoys everyone and because it's a spite ship born out of a compulsive need to assign a nonsensical girlfriend to every popular male character and the juvenile "if you hate it so much then I'll just ship it more" mentality. It's like admitting you find ketchup on white bread delicious in a culinary thread, you have to except people to think you're a retard for your taste and willingness to be open about it. It is what it is.

Scaramouche is literally the embodiment of a submissive fuckdoll fetish.
A boy who is ready to follow any commands and is willing to suck hundreds of cocks if told to. Signora almost literally called him a slut in the framework of PG-13.

Like, he is a harbinger only because he is ready to perform fucked up tasks of Piero and give his body to the service of Dottore in experiments that mere mortals will not survive.
If that fruit seller asked him to work in a different way, he would obediently agree.

Is it weird that I think the gods might not have been the ones to punish Khaenri'ah though? I have a suspicion that they might have fucked with the tree and cursed themselves somehow, but they think the gods did it because of tree fuckery.
I haven't tried the TCG yet, is it more like Magic or like Gwent? I like both of those but am pretty meh about other card games. What I saw from spoilers reminded me of Legends of Runeterra and kinda turned me off from it. I don't like games with attack order bullshit much.

Canon facts about Scaramouche -

- he is literally programmed to obey any commands given to him. It was Ei's intention to make all her puppets prone to submission, to prepare them to be under her control. Its why the Shogun rebelled after as long as 500 years. Ei knew that he was basically a cumslut and a dog, so she put him to sleep in the domain so that nobody could control him. Not even her; she said so herself; its literally the whole reason why she put him to sleep. Dottore is smarter than that, though, with a little bit of manipulation the dumb bitch was looped around his finger to become his forever BDSM fuckdoll

File: 1670580412598.jpg (309.52 KB, 3840x2160, 20221205_014522.jpg)

- Its also why Scaramouche is a bitch to everyone else. He has to keep his internal guard up. His past betrayals is a source of betrayal for him because his programming makes him so obedient. Calling people worms and disrespecting them would make it harder for them to figure out that he's actually a bitch-boy intimidating them. The dawning realization that he is basically a princess-acting slave is too satisfying, though, because he hates it when you make him obey you.

- He got hog-tied in his stomach one day, with the rope passing through his asscrack, a sharp scalpel vigorously looped around the rope and inserted into his anus. One move and the scalpel shifted. Five hours of pure disaster. He left with significant tearing, which made shitting absolutely excruciating for the next weeks. And then there were Dottores other kinks. Boiling tea. Acid. Bath full of ice. Blow torch. Forcing his penis in a beehive. Poison incense. Cleaning chemicals. Letter openers. Baseball bat with nails hammered in. Pepper spray and deodorant. Wax in his eyes. Thousands of beetles on his body. Burning hot lightbulbs up his anus. Spiked gags. Hammering nails on his hands. Waterboarding. Rotten eggs up his nose. Sensory deprivation refrigerator. Coal in mouth and then lit. Spiked shoes. Coal bed. Legs covered in lighter fluid and lit. Staple gun on frenelum. Sharp metal rulers. Freezing his nipples than biting them off. Purified capcaisin onto his anus and frenulum. Prostate torture and milking. Whippings. Bondage. Cock ball torture. Bestiality. Sounding with purified nettle powder.

- Scaramouches medical experimentations were insane: after visits to the Abyss Scara would return completely destroyed to thr point where he'd had to be medicated by Dottore. This was excruciating. He'd go to the point of immobility. Crawling to the bathroom would nearly take him an hour. Urination, defecation, would be excruciating. He'd be deaf and blind, the regular beatings would cause his face to swell so much that mountains of flesh would obsuficate his eyes from sight. He'd vomit out everything fed to him, provoking more beatings. He was deeply bandaged, stitched, nailed, wired, and the experimentation became so frequent they happened every night and day. Chemicals that burned his stomach; electrocution of the prostate to extract his semen; the panicking decrease of anesthesia during the procedures; lotions that would burn his skin off; limbs torn off and exposed to radiation, destroying the internal DNA, and then replaced; electric stimulation applied to his brain that would make him scream. Dottore would connect his consciousness to the automations, attempt to transfigure him into hillichurls and turn him back, try to find the cure for Eleazer with him, and other various fucked up shit. A light touch of a segment would send him to panic. His brain had atrophied so severely that the doctor had to repair it by further electric stimulation, attempting to restore the damaged neurons. His hair would fall off from the stress, turning grey at some parts

I dont give a fug about theorycrappers. its boring mechanically and visually, offers no utility, and is recycled from a hated 1.0 standard banner character. doesn't go well with my other characters either because no male electro supports, only boobahs and that annoying turd fischl who I refuse to build simply to make him not be doodoo.

No. 262134

Unlike Cyno it does look similar to Keqing but being dendro instead of electro it has a lot more usage than Keqing has since we don't have a lot of viable options for dendro yet. This thread shits on literally every male character that is about to be released because they don't fit their impossible standards (which seem to be "main DPS AND a top level applicator") and it's jarring because I play with my husbandos just fine and never meet the issues anons complained about 2 months before their release. Only Cyno's long burst locking him to field with no proper support was a legit complaint that I met but I've found that he can just use the certain elemental enemies to pass application around without a support or just play in co-op. Sometimes I feel like people just don't know how to think for themselves and figure out different strategies than forward vape go boomboom.

No. 262139

What exactly were you expecting..? We already knew he's dendro and a sword user, he seems to be doing the best you could do with that combo, i.e. dendro damage with the sword and the burst you can't really see the effects from that video alone. It's too early to say anything conclusive. If anything it seems to be more accurate to say it's "Keqing if she was actually fun to play as".

So you weren't going to roll him anyway kek, what are you even complaining about?

Who to put with him then? Fischl's skill is shorter than Raiden's and Beidou needs her burst for that
Pretty early for this talk I know but I really want to try Alhaithem, XQ, Tartaglia and Nahida now switching between the two, infinite bloom
I still can't believe I wished for Nahida so Cyno can be op

>wind faggot go nyoooom


Honestly? For me I wanted his burst to be more flashy/unique. I know Tarta/Zhongli/Diluc…etc. aren't that special but they're "unique" (I'm using that term loosely here) that sit out of the box is onpar with character but I want something flashier
Even Ayato has more flare in his burst. But all in all I will get him regardless kek and then wait patiently for Baizhu (please be healer)

No. 262142

if he had any redeeming qualities besides the leona voice I would've been happy to. his kit doesn't look any more fun to play than keking, thats the cope speaking. he has slower, chunkier animations.

the same people as keking and tighnari - fish hole, pedo chan, a heal/shield or kazuha, don't really know since I don't use those teams. I know that because of how those dendro electro reactions work those three are interchangeable, but them all wanting the same supports also means you can't have good teams on both sides of abyss if you were hoping to use more than one of them as dps. tighnari is meta because hes kawaiier with fun kit.

To each their own I guess, I hate playing as most of the characters considered meta because they're annoying and clunky to me.

Nice picture and congrats on getting him!

Thank you! I haven't bothered building faruzan tbh, but i might try him out with venti and mono geo then.

It has to be a pasta kek.

Eh these animations have to be placeholders right, they dont look as cool as i imagened. I dont mind if his playstyle is a copy of keqing since i wont use her anyway kek. I also dont mind if he is an on field dps since i think Baizhu will be offield.

i've been 36 every abyss for so long now even when i was still f2p and i only use male dps characters, i really just go for husbandos only. People who pull for "meta" because they cant clear abyss must serieusly be very bad at the game.

They changed some animation of Wanderer during beta so they might do something like that again.

Keqing was my only main dps for months early game. It was traumatic. Alhaitham seems to have her same issues, pushing enemies back, the strong hit being at the end slash of his burst. Made me a bit disappointed BUT he will be amazing overworld. Nothing better than a male dps who isn't burst reliant when playing in the overworld. Other than that he seems to be pretty solid kit wise. Just like how Keqing is a good unit damage-wise now that dendro is out, Alhaitham will do good damage too with electro aggravate or hyperbloom teams.

No. 262159

The camera angles of his burst changed and they gave him a little head tilt too.

I'm not sure if fandom complaints made any difference but it seemed like a lot of Chinese fans hated his first burst animation and are a bit more pleased with the second.

ackshually there is: a male with a skill that makes traversal or fighting the spread out mobs that plague the overworld less of a pain. alhaitham would make the latter more painful. dendro characters feel like dead geese in overworld party if you keep 2 wind fag in team for the running speed boost like I do.

I’m not a metafag but TBH I’d rather play as Alhaitham than kekkin. The burst animation is a step up from kek’s because hers takes a while and only targets one enemy. Why play as the god obsessed fake cat girl when you can be a muscly man who’s snarky? I rest my case.

This is a different award than the one on 4th shouldn't it be 1600? Because let me tell you they didn't win this award because of pure satisfaction, just players wanting more primos.
I know me stopped spending money on genshin and throwing it somewhere else won't make a difference to them but at the start I thought they were genuinely a poor indie developer, now the more money they make the more greedy/cheap they get. Even if those 10 wishes will %99.9 get you shit it's still something nice from them, I guess.

Dont ask why I'm disappointed a corpo being a corpo, I'm just retarded.

Oh God more desert exploring. But this means it's the final piece for that Aranara picture book? And last denderoculus'? Yahoo if so.

Correct me if I'm wrong nonas but I'm pretty sure they also won this award last year and sent 1600
The one they sent 800 few days ago was related Playstation, not game awards
I'm suprised that they got this award tbh, with how every area/domain loads slowly in Playstation. I wish they'd give us a graphics option like PC and mobile

Only Baizhu as far as leaks go, in 3.6 and I think they also mentioned Kaveh was a 4 star? I wish Dottore would be announced in 3.7 but this is just beyooond wishful thinking kek

I'm also really glad everyone is seeing how obvious Hoyo is with these two, bringing them as this region's yaoi.
Whether it's Kaeluc, Zhongchi or Ayatoma all of the individual characters were introduced first and shown a bit about themselves THEN their interactions. None of these these ships are Canon but bear with me, they were shipped by everyone because 1. They show a bit of character 2. They interacted
We saw Alhaithem but what the hell is Kaveh? A builder? What's his personality and why does he need to be roommates with alhaithem? I was paying attention to the story and Alhaithem did not seem to be the type that allows roommates with him, unless I missed it?

I guess the joke is he's a soft bully like Ayato that pretends to want roommates so idiots will accept and he looks them? Does he keep Kaveh for repairs? Idk they seemed kind of desperate with this reveal.
I don't like Ayato a even but I think Thoma bring an independent character at the start of the quest, then Ayato in his quest was way better than this case

If you read the bulletin boards you'd see that their relationship isn't hamfisted and they actually have way more chemistry than zhongchi wished they ever had (what chemistry do zhongchi even have in the first place?) and their arguments make sense. Kaveh is an idealistic and very compassionate person so he can't stand alhaitham's cold individualistic attitude. If you don't like alhaitham's character, that's fine but saying they're cheap yaoi reads to me like you've taken your opinion from other moid genshin generals who are seething because of kaveh. We don't know yet why kaveh has a debt because he wasn't released and we need more info on him but that's the reason why alhaitham lets him live with with.

Dehya and Alhaitham would make a couple too ugly for me to ship even if they had chemistry. People simping for her have gotta be blind, she looks like that unfortunate cat girl from the calarts Shera reboot got hit by the vtuber ray. Together they'd look like barf gijinka.

This. It's all weirdly defensive and dismissive, like this time around they can't outright deny it and make fun of people making things up since the game is shoehorning them like crazy so they just decide to poo-poo over them altogether. Their last interaction together combined with character voicelines confirming how close they are and bulleting board mentions around Sumeru offered more material than any other ship (except maybe Xingqiu and Chongyun). I wouldn't care otherwise about people seething over a gay ship but it's so obvious they're going out of their way to complain about one of the only couples that actually work off of each other and have had cute interactions and complain about how bad they are as characters when logically they wouldn't even give a shit if that was the case. Stay mad that the hot tittyman is gay I guess?

>We saw Alhaithem but what the hell is Kaveh? >A builder? What's his personality and why does he need to be roommates with alhaithem?
Nahida explains that Kaveh is an artsy romantic who understands true knowledge. True knowledge being more than just what the akademiya says, it's everything from dreaming, dancing, understanding people etc. So she says that Kaveh is the closest to what she believes to be true knowledge. Kaveh even does stage magic during his free time. As for Alhaitham Nahida says he is individualistic and only cares about the rational aspect of everything. He rarely cares about emotions or people. This is according to Nahida not true knowledge, even if Alhaitham disagrees.

Kaveh himself is Sumeru's most famous architect. He is even more famous than Alhaitham it seems, since Alhaitham is describes as being a bit more behind the scenes. Kaveh built that palace in the game for “The Lord”. The mentioned lord is Dori. She scammed Kaveh when building it and he got broke. Because of him being broke he had to be roommates with someone, to the NPC's surprise he ended up being roommates with Alhaitham. Alhaitham seems to be paying most of the things but we can see on the bulletin board that Kaveh's relaxed attitude about money annoys him, since he for once didn't pay Kaveh's tab but left it for Kaveh to handle.

Lastly as for why Alhaitham let Kaveh be his roommate? They knew each other before since they both are the top people in the akademiya. So it makes sense that Kaveh might have asked to be his roomie when he went broke. Alhaitham might have taken pity on him or just wanted someone to pay rent. Now this is from the drip marketing while the rest is in-game but Alhaitham is described as not really caring that much about his Scribe job. He just wants to live comfortably. This might be another reason as to why he wants rent money. Also, the only point where Alhaitham isn't as stoic and shows some aside from anger and annoyance is when he found Kaveh's keys in his pocket. He chuckled. It seems to me that Alhaitham enjoys teasing Kaveh which also adds another point to why he keeps Kaveh around.

It seems to me that you haven't really payed attention much which might be why you feel this way. I'm not going to try to convince you, you're of course entitled to your opinion. But each one of your point has an in-game explanation already.

My queen calm down. I'm not an evil mother fucker trying to destroy your yaoi, chill. I wanted to know more but there wasn't any "more" when I played the story and I paid attention. I don't even remember the option to ask Nahida about Kaveh or alhaithem it was all about either Scaramouche or decenders unless you're talking about this new interlude chapter? Didn't have the time to play it yet to ask Nahida if there are the options which I guess makes it my bad.
Also I haven't even shit talked alhaithem why are projecting other anons on me kek

I am just going nuts anons, I want to know the 3.4 banners so badly. I haven't pulled since JULY, I will have ~800 pulls saved and I just want Hu Tao to be with either Alhaitham or Yelan for the weapon banner, but I bet she will be with Shenhe or Xiao, and then there's talks of Ayaka being there too. Do you nonnas think they would really do 6 banners in 1 patch? It's keeping me up at night.

A bit disappointed with how much they are recycling mechanics and animations for Haitham and Yaoyao, it's somewhat less annoying when they are recycling stuff from Honkai since I don't play it, but in this case it's almost copy pasting other Genshin characters, I hope they don't keep doing this ("[old character] but [different element]!") esp for long-awaited charas instead of coming up with new interesting playstyles. Still gonna get Haitham though!

I'm very into TCGs so I had low expectations. I am happily surprised! There are some problems as it is now, mostly low amount of synergies and many combos are too slow to set up (like Kaeya's ult, seems very fun to pull off but takes so many rounds and cards that it's not worth it). It should be better once they add more cards, hopefully they will do that every patch or two to keep it fresh. It's also a bit too slow but I see people complaining about that everywhere so they might add an option to speed/skip animations eventually (not holding my breath). I hope they add more music options, like literally why not just add the teapot music player in there… and I wish it wasn't timegated until Monday, but it may be a good thing otherwise I wouldn't have gotten anything done this week.

If someone actually paid attention they would know who Kaveh is, what got him into huge amounts of debt leading him to bunk with Alhaitham and what his exact merits and personality are like.

Also it's easy to be distrcated while playing genshin because there is way too much dialogue that brings noting to the table, i wish they would just get to the point instead of creating plot lines revolving around boring npcs like teppei, dunyarzad, shani etc.

No. 262670

I think that's a reason why some players here, including myself at times, claim to skip dialogue. I put off archon quests cause they seem to always start with npc quests that drag and exhaust me before we actually get to the meat of the issue. Wanting to meet Nahida and the other playable characters (and to try to catch up ofc) is what made me buckle down and play the archon quest. I realized I need to turn off the bg stuff I multi-task with when I paused it for once and listened to important dialogue and the plot, voices, and characterization actually moved me. Like wow, this game can be immersive when I'm not being scorned by npc fetch quests Kizari and Ruu are the only ones who ever mattered or bummed out by annoying number talk.

No. 262671

The lorefags are no less of a minority than metafags. Many people don't care at all, and many others find it bad or boring and there's nothing wrong with that. There's a lot to like about genshin outside the plot and the combat. I can at least speak for myself when I say the more I know [about genshin lore] the less I want to know. If it was a VN/had little gameplay and mostly focused on the plot it never would've taken off, never in a billion years.

No. 262672

A lot of players just want to speedrun everything the day new content comes out after rushing through acts 1 and 2 and never getting a solid foundation of what the world in Genshin is like and what are the important things to focus on, so they smash the new story chapter together in 2 hours only to complain about how shitty the writing was not being able to understand even the basics of a big catalyst featured in the story. I could bet half of the people complaining about the "bad writing and stupid characters" couldn't tell me any of the key plot points in Sumeru, much less elaborate their views on them that aren't aped straight from leddit.

I'm sometimes guilty of zoning out during long speeches myself too which causes me to miss something important and not being able to backtrack the dialogue via a log feature makes it hard to catch up, but that's pretty much a problem with my shitty attention span and the lack of a game mechanic found in almost every story heavy game these days, not so much with the writing.

No. 262675

Do you just run around picking sweet flowers all day long or something? Exploration is pretty story heavy since everything you come across rewards you with tidbits of the story. As for anime boys, why do you collect them if you're not interested in their background and how they interact with the world they live in? I genuinely couldn't imagine giving a shit about a single character if I wasn't interested in their portrayal and purpose in the story, if I just wanted pretty soulless pngs to ogle I would play the numerous idol games around instead.

Because of the way they look or how fun they are to use. I usually get disappointed when I find out their backstories and will then make up a new one by myself or pretend they're characters from stories I like, it's fun.

Just… why? I really, really don't understand this mindset. Why wouldn't you rather play something that you actually like and enjoy? It's one thing to play pretend with a property you don't even care about, but why come to a Genshin thread and start sperging about how everyone who cares about the lore or meta are "a minority" when that's what a lot of the discussion even here focuses on? Why come to the thread at all when you clearly don't want a shared experience based on the game canon everyone knows instead of some alternative universe based on your personal headcanons? Is this some terminal zoomer behavior or something? I just don't get what a community could offer to someone who gets genuinely disappointed and upset about finding out that the character doesn't correspond to their own made up version. It honestly doesn't make sense to me but it explains a lot about anons just complaining about the characters and the story when they're just wasting their time playing something they don't appreciate.

No. 262692

The issue isn't that someone thinks certain aspects of the game are bad. Genshin has had really atrocious blunders, the entirety of the Inazuma archon quest was a mess and nobody in their right mind would defend it and the entire fandom collectively shits all over it unrestrained. But the issue is when people act all smug talking shit about the game like they have any idea of what they're talking about and come dropping all the hot takes when they clearly weren't paying attention, if they even gave the plot a chance at all.

And of course if you think the story is just dog shit from start to finish, I really doubt you would sit through hours and hours of the archon quest no matter how hot your husbando of choice is to you.

anon >>262690 was faster in typing than me but this, the terminal can't read your thoughts and they wouldn't be able to monitor everything happening either. Otherwise their plot would've been foiled from the beginning. They tracked Cyno due to predictions based on the analysis of the data collected on his previous behavioral patterns, not by monitoring him in real time. That's how they were able to fool the Akademiya with their ploy, by going against the predictions.

No. 262695

Oh, that gives more to look forward to then. Thanks!
>their plot would've been foiled from the beginning
That makes sense. I just got the the part where Alhaitham explained that Cyno was monitored and his habits were uploaded to the terminal. Can't imagine how fucking invasive this is and how he feels about such a revelation. This whole shared knowledge thing, and it still being heavily restricted and monitored, is such a creepy concept. Good job, hoyo, you made another fucked oppressive entity in the game. I don't think I've met a single scholar in-game I've liked.

No. 262697

I do play those games! But sadly most don't have a lot of gameplay to begin with (VNs) or I've done all there is to do in them so I'm constantly looking for fun side games to keep things fresh. An open world to explore with cute boys that remind me of the characters in those stories I like is a unique experience that drew me to genshin, and it alone has been enough to keep me playing. Sure, it'd be cool if it had a more interesting plot and characters too but it's nice to just chill in a game and not be invested in the plot for once. None of the genshin players I know care about the story/lore either beyond a super surface level so I don't feel very shameful about playing the way I do. It's suffice to say a lot of players feel the same way.

It's okay if you don't understand, anon! You probably can't help it.

I’m going to be honest, other than stuffs related to my husbando I’ve consume most of Genshin’s lore from other people’s theory/summary post rather than actually finding and reading them in-game.
A lot of interesting stuffs are hidden away in artifacts & weapons description, some hidden world quest, or character profile, something you would easily miss when playing blindly and didn’t know what to look for. How are you supposed to know if the La Signora’s whole backstory are available in an artifact set, when you never farm for CWoF? Or how Shogun puppet is inspired from Art of Khemia if you never roll for Raiden?
Also those limited time events. It’s a crime how they drop some important plot point or character development and proceed to make inaccessible to access in game after a few weeks. They’s not even letting us who do managed to read those event replay it in the future. Like Albedo’s first event for example, where it’s supposed to be played alongside his story quest. While his story quest is permanent, without the extra part with the Whopper-flower it became a bit bland and removes some context of Albedo’s character and the whole not-really-a-human foreshadowing, though it’s not exactly a secret if you have him since it’s right there written in his profile.

TL;DR I think Genshin has some nice lore and decent characters, they just have a really REALLY unpleasant way of presenting a lot of their ideas.

No. 262763

I'm a bit confused, Kaeya's ult procs when you switch characters, not when using a skill. That only works if you have Shenhe card in hand and you'd still lose 1 proc switching from Kaeya to someone else, so it can only react once (unless you use keqing's stiletto card), and if you didn't pull shenhe card, then it takes 2 turns to do 1 reaction). It takes so long to set up, needs too much RNG to pull the right cards and the effect is way weaker than other teams (freeze team seems strongest right now) that it's not worth it except if it's just for fun. Maybe I am doing something wrong. I'm not too concerned about meta anyway, I just try to pull off fun combos, but it's not always ideal with the card options we have right now.

(nta) I feel bad for liking an obviously coomerish design, but I just love her design and personality. IMO she's a lot more interesting, cohesive and aesthetically pleasing than e.g. Shenhe, or Kuki (who I'm building for abyss right now but I don't enjoy staring at her tramp stamp and weird-ass colour/design). Dehya reminds me of Beidou (who I also love), they do have that "strong woman, one of the boys" trope which is a bit cringe but at least it's a change from the waifish work-wives.

The only part about Dehya's outfit that I actually hate are the heels and I wish she had proper boots, but otherwise even though she's showing skin it's a pretty cool design. She was really interesting as a character too, once Mihoyo allows their female characters to have plot relevance and an actual role in the story instead of being just a collectable cutesy waifu it actually turns out good. I fully expected Dehya to be another booba mommy for the moids but at the end of the archon story I couldn't get enough of her. It was great that she was able to interact with all the male characters as their equal and her selling her favourite claymore to help Dunyarzad out was really wholesome, she had severe lesbian energy going on all the time and I loved it. Hate all the fanart coomerizing her though.

She's going to be the first lady I pull for and it's such an honor.

I have two questions,

1. How do anons feel about Genshin fans who interpret any character having any positive/negative interaction with another turning them as a forever,totes Canon ship?
I've been getting out of Genshin communities (except this one) because it's starting to piss me off how characters can't be discussed as characters, only lovers,lovers, fucking, fucking, like enough I want to talk to people about lore, their character or even sfw art/fiction but no one is interested. One normal sentence in a normal conversation then "yanno, X totally is totally homo because he/she were nice to X but hoyo can't make them official because they're Chinese" and go deep about nfsw details, as always. I sometimes think these people never had friends kek.
I really like this thread because there are all types of people and most are mature but I wish it was some real community like a forum or something to continue a topic

Sorry for the question-turned-vent but didn't want it to mistaken as an attack to anyone just in case.

2. I have all husbandos except Ayato and Alhaithem is coming, my funds are only enough for Alhaithem and idk if I should skip him for Ayato or skip Ayato? I shan't gamble because I always get my charas at 150-160 wishes.

No. 262987

piggybacking this to sperg that the "dendro keqing" as a derogatory take is fucking retarded and the fandom jumping the gun as usual, he has a mechanic similar to Itto with stack accumulation building up burst damage, the burst damage can be increased scaling from elemental mastery and his ascension stat is increasing dendro damage. He's a dendro melee DPS which we still didn't have and despite having a kit similar to Keqing they added features to make it more interesting to play. Of course if people don't want to use Yae or Fischl they don't have a lot of options (yet), but I'm personally looking into trying out Thoma with him.

As for your question I'd rather have a recycled "dendro keqing" or a 5-star Razor than gimmicky and/or hard to grasp mechanics like Nilou and Yelan. The latter being fucking impossible to control without a PS controller. Or an extremely niche kit locked to one or two characters like Shenhe.

I sometimes read stuff there but it being reddit I have never participated, thank you for the neat suggestion though!

Funny because when I want to steer the subject back to characters or lore or whatever they ask me to talk to kids on discord since shipping has "sexual" themes and I might be a prude baby. Really hate how everyone takes anything I say like a personal attack, I just like lore to inspire me to draw fanart jfc.
I don't like talking to kids and most communities are infested by trannies so I'm kind of limited on spaces with adults interested without them being moids (%99.9 coomers). Leaving the last one yesterday I wanted to see if it's a mutual issue is all.

I miss livejournal so much, and yes, we do need a Renaissance nona. And an ugly, clunky and abandoned forum with low res banners and subforum icons kek.

Always thought about the reruns, but seeing banners taking almost a year or more for a rerun is too much. If only Ayato had a better back design, I'd whale.

Most definitely. But the "new" thing in these kits is that theyre fixed. Alhaithem won't scatter enemies and Cyno's burst is alot more satisfying and less clunky than Razor's.

I think Raiden is better than Yae or Fischl? Since her skill activates with hits and lasts for 25 seconds. Pair him (glided dreams) with her and either Xingqiu or Yelan and Another dendro (deepwood memories) and everything is deleted. Really early for this team composition bs but I'm excited for the dendro sword guy!

No. 263044

I don't think we need to worry about powercreep for a while. They've been a lot better about it in Genshin than in Honkai. In Honkai, old characters are completely obsolete and new competitive content is centered around the newest valk releases. It gets impossible to keep up while using old characters, even if they are hyperinvested (they might have improved this since I stopped playing a year ago, idk). AFAIK only the "archons" equivalent (herrschers) stay somewhat useable. So far in Genshin, old characters that were good are still relevant (national is still a top team) and we're getting the opposite treatment, where old characters that were useless before become meta (e.g. revival of electro). Even when Venti use % fell off because of heavy enemies, they eventually fixed that with abyss lineups + reducing chasm enemy weights and he became a top pick again. Alhaitham doesn't powercreep Keqing because they are different elements, and dendro actually made Keqing more useable. You could say Layla powercreeps Diona, but they're still different enough that Diona fits better in some teams over Layla. Plus I couldn't pull for Layla because I have guaranteed Haitham and I'm sad/malding about it. Anyway, people were doomposting about powercreep when Genshin came out because they assumed it would be the same as Honkai, but we don't really have a reason to think that anymore. However, we can worry about them recycling a lot and being lazy with designs and broken kits for sure! I wonder if this (cyno and haitham) is a result of them rushing due to missing 3 weeks of work and then patches being 1 week shorter.

I couldn’t give less of a fuck that he’s better than Keqing. Never play for meta anyways. What I don’t like is reusing the same animation style. The burst being so similar to Keqing is so boring and takes away from his character. I wanted him to be unique.

No. 263218

So can we see the people gave to thier wanderer? Every profile I clicked only has "wanderer" in it, is it like because they haven't the quest yet or the personalized name never shows?

Seeing this side by side makes me hope his burst appearance is still in beta because Keqing's looks cooler with her silhouettes.

Yoimiya's issue isn't numbers, it's that arrows can miss. To powercreep her in a way anyone would want you'd have to make a new character's numbers Eula-level. And even then there's certain playstyles people just don't like.

I agree 100% with that, my reply was because you used the word powercreep (means that new characters make old characters useless/weak, essentially replacing them) so I misunderstood your post. I also think it's very sad and disappointing that they're giving recycled kits to highly anticipated characters. If they really had to because of time constraints, they should have dumped those on 4-star characters or make another Eula-tier filler character, and take proper time to give A-list 5-stars more original kits. I'm pretty underwhelmed with the Sumeru 5-stars so far, I hope Dehya isn't a 5-star Xinyan like some people theorize.

>or make another Eula-tier filler character
I fear for Dottore's future. There is no way they'd screw his kit, right? Since claymore is the least versatile weapon you either Unga bunga or end up like Xinyan.

Fan design contests are always a scam to the designer, the reward for the design would probably be 1600 primos while they get all the cash kek
But yeah it is kind of odd they don't make them. I sometimes see they have some contests in the hoyo app for the sake of activity.

Oh no I totally get it anon, sorry I should’ve clarified I was not the anon talking about powercreep that you replied to before me.

The A-list 5 star thing is so true. I’m honestly okay with filler characters like Eula and Yelan being boring, since they’re obviously not important to the story. But Alhaitham was a huge part of the story in Sumeru. He was apart of ever single part of the main archon quest. Such a disappointment how they handled his kit and animations.

Nonas, I'm about to sink my 37 resins on one of these domains to make Scarara my best dps, please recommend me one of these (or others):

>Desert Pavilion Chronicles

%40 atk and %10 speed boost after charged attack
>Echos of an Offering
Normal attacks has %36 chance to up the damage of ONLY normal attack to %70 attack boost and if boost doesn't trigger each next hits will increase the odds by %20 (CD is 0.2)
>Shimenawa's reminiscence
For 15 energy boost normal/charge/plunging damage by %50

The description of EoaO makes it seem better than Shime and new set because it works with his A4. I don't have one piece of this set to test it and havent entered that domain once kek but then again I'm not sure if only boosting his normal attack is enough compared to the rest. Currently he has 2 ATK%18+ and 2 Anemo Atk%18+

No. 263447

I really dont understand the ult comparison, like the only thing they have in common is that they both visually have lines which Yelans ult also has.

Desert Pavilion Chronicles is his best artifact set so you should farm for that. Dont farm for Echos since it has a bug where if you don't have good ping it doesn't consistently proc. Also the Desert artifact set 2pc gives anemo damage where as Echos 2pc gives atk%, imo you want the anemo damage. Good luck with farming nonnie, kqm also had made a quick guide which might change because they are still testing stuff but its a good guideline

No. 263537

Thank you so much nona! I almost went to that EoaO domain. 16 resins and so far crap BiS but great drops for the elemental mastery set that I forgot it's name.

I wonder if they were planning to release Alhaitham much later in the spring after Dehya but had to switch schedules and were under time constraints, which is why leakers were at first saying that he's not on the roadmap. He's been super popular and anticipated so it feels weird that they would just recycle assets.

No. 263728

Actually HD slo-mo vid oh his burst animation. It looks flashy now but kind of lazy. Maybe it will make more sense after his story quest. like Zhongling's could be considered lazy aswell as all he does is fold his arms but with the context oh him being the Geo archon is makes more sense and fitting.
Let me copuim in peace kek.

This makes much more sense.

The only way to make his burst animation look even cheaper would be making him t-pose during it lmao. This truly says something about the effort put into him and his kit.

No. 263733

I think the only way I can explain my Alhaithem isnt-cool-enough-yet autism is that his Gacha illustration is the exact same as his burst. Take for example Itto, his illustration his him doing the oni thing pose but in game its a different angle, looking at enemy instead of us.. etc.
Wanderer, Nahida, Nilou, Cyno, Tighnari, the 5 stars of Sumeru all have official gacha illustrations than is different than the burst animation. If I wasn't away from the computer I'm sure I can put him on his burst and would match even in angle.

It seem ridiculous to point the above out I know, but Genshin specifically concentrates on the waifusim/husbandoism aspect alot and they kind of slipped with what's supposed to be a highly anticipated character. No one would care if it was Kaveh because we kind of didn't spend as much time with him as we did with Alhaithem, you know what I mean?

No. 263737

He was actually leaked to be in 3.4 as early as 7 months ago (I couldn't find the reddit post again and the uncle database was taken down, sorry!). I was surprised to see it because I thought the earliest predicted was always 3.6 for him. I do think they decide on banners and reruns somewhat short-notice (like sometimes only a patch or two in advance), maybe the leaks switched to 3.6 because HYV was thinking of delaying him, but opted not to in the end because of his importance in the main quests. HYV definitely make weird decisions at times, that don't make sense even from a corporate or financial point of view. Perhaps they have a lot of turnover of staff (i.e. rumours of original writers quitting after liyue, honkai or newbie designers being brought in for eula and others), but in any case they definitely need to communicate more between departments (and fucking communicate with us, the players!).

I believe this one, I started playing when Inazuma just dropped so I don't have "old is better" bias but both Mond and Liyue archon stories were more fun and had soul. both Archon's idea of loving their people was actually wholesome, especially Zhongli wanting his people to be independent I think alot of people agree Inazuma's wasnt that good and Raiden sucks.

This is the best banner ever for me, I didn't even dare to hope for it because it seemed too good to ever happen. I will finally get Homa and Ganyu's BiS, after saving for so long. I don't even get baited by Haitham's weapon because I already have PJWS and Haran is like his 4th BiS. It's perfect!! Although, sorry for nonnas who were hoping for something else! I think 3.5 will have Dehya/Eula (with Mika), then Ayaka/Shenhe, but that's just my best guess. Kazuha was rumoured but I kinda expect he'll be rerun later with the edgelord. Plus Dehya being with Eula or Shenhe gives me hope her weapon won't be garbage, even though I won't have enough to roll for it yet.

Nta but look at the leaks subreddit, they basically halfed his damage multipliers. Some comments are saying this took him from Hu Tao/Ayaka tier down to Diluc/Keqing. I hope he will get some adjustments and I don't understand why they would do this, even male players will spend money on him if he's meta

No. 264751

Looool I knew it because Keqingfags were complaing about him doing more damage than her even at lower talents and level. So no need for her electro with dendro, instead they will have to use his dendero with electro and waah not a male character! Can't play with those.
Hoyo has been nerfing characters because of those fucking beta testers are so good at playing the game, they utilize everything even going for dragon strikes and do immense damage and then the low IQ company think all players are this pro and nerf characters.
Didn't they do the same with Scara?

No. 264753

Why the fuck would they do that? Jesus christ, I was really hyped for his damage multipliers. Does this have something to do with him being too good solo without a shilled support? Or the asspained weibo schizos who got mad over him being gay with Kaveh and reporting them to the government? Or waifufags whining about him upstaging Keqing?

There's no other reason for this kind of nerf than pure spite. 705% EM to 282%? 437% to 175% on his burst?

god, fuck mihoyo. I saw some coping comments in the leak sub that the nerf was to avoid powercreep, but it's not like the original numbers would've put him at a new dps ceiling, it just would've made him an actual T0 male dps, and ofc we can never ever have that. Honestly I had been coping for a while that we just hadn't had a proper top tier dps guy from bad luck but we were just about to get one and he gets nerfed to hell…so it really is intentional, huh

Also lol some comments are also noticing the bias towards female characters in game

No. 264774

A lot of male players were hyped for Alhaitham too because he's such a likable, cool character and his kit seemed great so they're acting all bummed out finally realizing Mihoyo's unfair treatment of male DPSs. Not all male players are complete degenerate waifufags like Tectone, a good share of those most interested in meta are only interested in the game mechanics but everyone's been living in denial denying that there's a conscious bias against particularly tall male characters. It's bittersweet, on the other hand I'm pleased that people finally woke up to this bullshit but I'm beyond pissed about the nerf that they're 100% not going to backpedal on.

No. 264788

have they ever boosted stats in beta after nerfing them? it's still pretty early. tbh i know it's disappointing but it doesn't bother me as much as it used to, this game is easy as shit and it's not like you get more rewards for beating spiral abyss in 10 seconds or doing 1mil damage in the little events. that's why those dps obsessed whales were having such a tantrum when the card game came out as "endgame content". every time i see people sperg out about damage and shit it just feels like cope from them lol male banners are still making money and female banners can still flop big like nilou. stop looking at leaks and social media if it's affecting how much fun you're having with the game

No. 264790

It's about the principle. For those female players who want to play husbando meta it fucking sucks and it's completely unfair that women who play the game are told to settle with being a casual explorer in almost every combat based game there is despite them often making up at least 50% of the audience. In this case it's especially shitty because his damage multipliers were very promising and people were getting their hopes up for the dendro male DPS only to get served a big pile of shit. I don't care about spiral abyss or meta but I still want there to be a balance between characters.

No. 264792

You bet dehya will be a T0 pyro off-field solely because she's a waifu. Why do I even bother with this game, even if the writers and the art team loves the male characters, the developers and the beta testers will always be biased

No. 264799

I and alot others want to delete the 12 floor in 10 seconds with 1 mil damage. It's like there has to be an opposition everywhere when we ask for tall male characters kek.
Easy as shit or not, variety is needed even for male players who "don't want males". Electro, the newly revived element doesn't have a tall male character, and anemo the element of short boys (expect 3 girls) doesn't have a tall male character too.
>Nilou banner flopped
If I had a cent for everyone who said that I'd be able to buy Mihoyo. Nilou is Niche, just like Shenhe. Shenhe sold better than her because she straight up looks like a sex doll. And it's up to you whether or not to take me on my word, but a large percentage's word on characters are from people who don't even play the game. Nilou is popular af with coomers even now because she's the belly dancing waifu and that's the only way Mihoyo can drum attention to the game and attract new people that either will play or drum more attention and so on so it didn't really "flop".

If her speciality is burgeon then I wouldn't think so, but an off-field pyro? She will definitely be at the top with Raiden and Nahida. Or even Xiangling replacement?

No. 264800

Apparently dark eula is a fourth ranking harbringer. And Capitano is a "strongest individual". God when will mihoyo stop with the retcons?

no I get it, i've dropped gachas where female players get shafted and of course it's frustrating to feel like you're getting thrown dps crumbs while randoms like yelan come out with crazy multipliers or whatever. but I really don't think he's as bad as everyone's doomposting about, you're writing like we aren't going to be able to use him in any combat events or spiral abyss. he'll be fine with a team supporting him and good artifacts like literally every other dps. spiral abyss is not that difficult, I barely use hutao and xiao at all anymore and they are some of the dps characters people never shut the fuck up about. of course I'm also disappointed with this treatment but in terms of just gameplay I wouldn't worry about not being able to use him, for those saying oh he's unusable etc I think it's going a little overboard and this always happens with leaks. like i literally remember this getting said about raiden and memes getting made about her getting buffed like zhongli after her release, and now she's another character no one shuts the fuck up about

No. 264827

No one in this thread is saying he'll be ~literally unusable~. There's no excuse for taking a character from strong but not overpowered to weak to protect their gross waifu meta… IN A PVE GAME. Not everyone has weeks to spend on min maxing a character to reach the point they should've been woth far less investment all along. I wouldn't want to use him because I'd never be able to get over that. The devs are incels, I'm glad I quit spending money on this shit game ages ago.

No. 264828

This. Of course he will still be usable but just like every other male dps (sans Itto) he's forced down to mid tier, this time it's just double offensive because he got nerfed so bad. It's the beta testers getting mad that he's reaching waifu levels and sabotaging his kit since they let shit like Yelan fly and Raiden and Ganyu keep being ridiculously overpowered with nothing to contest them, while Venti gets nerfed with enemies that are immune to his burst.

No. 264832

the discussion was about him being unusable in combat shit like spiral abyss etc specifically. i don't think anyone LOVES grinding for artifacts to "min max" for weeks but it's a big part of the game if you want any character to do damage that's why they have that stupid resin system… regardless I don't disagree it's a dumb nerf so whatever. the male ego is unbelievably fragile, it's like when they got mad when tighnari did charged attacks "like ganyu"
i know this is baby's first gacha for a lot of you but christ how hard is it to understand when you see the character designs in this game? female characters are made for the coomer moid demographic and male characters are made for the female player demographic

No. 264845

No matter how popular he is as a character the grand total adds to "men hate him the least", not "men love him and want him to success as a DPS. That's gacha game 101. Just look at the scrote sperg upthread gloating about how "fujotrannies btfo'd", that's the real face of male players.

>using one random comment from a schizo troll who's most likely a nonnie taking the piss from other nonnies

No. 264850

Just what kind of a next level "n-no it's not biased towards waifus" cope is this? Can you explain then why all of the most overpowered DPSs in the game are female? Or why there are five 5-star cryo females and 0 male? How about explaining why the only Abyss tier male characters are supports? Why did they release Yelan, a completely random character out of nowhere that's basically just a better replacement for Xingqiu complete with the same haircut while we will never get a male Raiden, Eula or Ganyu? The only reason Zhongli received his buff was because he was the China region god, not because he was male and men liked him. Chinese scrotes hated Itto, the only good male DPS capable of big numbers, because monogeo was reaching the damage output of their waifu teams. They also hated Tighnari because he had a special charged arrow mechanic. Mihoyo is absolutely biased towards waifufags and there's no amount of "b-but some women like shenhe too" bullshit that will change it.

You could make the same point and wonder why Hoyoverse never makes up Anemo girls withba sad past and a dead friend. Or no 5 Geo girls. Or making a 5 Noelle who's overall a more promenient character who's worth remembering. Also Yelan pretty much qualifies as sub-DPS and the last most wanked female unit aside from Nahida (Archon). Not even Nilou got so much shill.

Besides didn't Hoyoverse take into account CN female fanbase's considerations by censoring 4 coomer outfits?

Literally another example of male player-favoritism, the beta that nerfed Alhaitham gave Yelan nails. They redid a part of her model, without doing a skin. Now how many years have female players asked mihoyo to redo parts of Albedo and Diluc? Even Itto and his arms. Who actually gave a fuck about Yelan and her nails except moids and who did mihoyo decide to actually listen to? Moids.

I'm always suprised by how much they hate him despite him doing nothing offensive? Even his arms are offensive, why hate the wholesome Dumbo guy? Ugh I'm so glad this place exists
This always bewildered me, they succeeded with 4 Mond girls but Shenhe isn't touched? Hell even Xiangling has the same butt line Amber had.

No. 264862

Literally where am I shilling the waifus? You sound paranoid. Yelan is flexible in a lot of team comps and the Hydro resonance being reviewed since 3.0 makes her even more OP as a sub-DPS. It's not up for debate.
Seems like you're cherrypicking because normalfags love him. Unless you're exposing youself to anti-Ittosaras headcanoning him as an abuser.

The censorship was performative as fuck too, you can still use the original outfits outside of China since Mona's ass only got censored for the Chinese servers. Both Yelan and Candace got released post-censorship without any issue so that's a moot point.

No. 264867

Nah girl in the online communities (and locally in uni) whenever a banner drops we ask each other who will you get and all that, all moids hate him and call him an annoying retarded and they are normie enough that I never got it, like is that even a reason when most's fave waifu is Eula?
I mean since I am speaking from my experiences with the average Genshoon fans it could be cherry picking? But idk their hate for him confuses me–
>anti-Ittosaras headcanoning him as an abuser.
Wait what. How is he an abuser according to them?

No. 264868

There are no limited anemo or geo female dps not to any benefit of male characters, but rather because they are objectively not ideal dps elements due to not having access to reactions. Itto, Xiao, and Scara can put out good numbers with enough investment but they are absolutely not meta, largely due to their elements.

Also laughable you think hoyoverse censored anything because of their female playerbase, they did the bare minimum to get the CCP off their ass

No. 264869

Eula is still relevant? Last time we saw her she was still with Amber in the festival in 3.0.
These people claim Itto abused Sara when nothing in canon stipulates this. It's from my TL.

why do you think the clothing censor had anything to do with chinese women's opinions? i assumed like the other poster said it was to get the gov off their asses like every other videogame in china with skimpy female outfits or skeletons in it, so I'm wondering if you had actually read that from like chinese social media or something? just interested.

Not gonna lie I will still pull Alhaitham even if he has been nerfed. This is because I really want a male dendro character, I still haven't gotten Tighnari so I will go for Alhaitham. Also I really want a male 5 star cryo.

Eula hasn't had a rerun since over a year right? I don't think she's that popular, last event she was in was the dragonspine one with Albedo I believe. Coomer outfit aside her vengeance act can become tiresome, its funny the first few minutes after that its annoying.

In the beginning there were rumors online that a chinese feminist group caused the censors. But like I said those are just rumors and make no sense because no company or goverment take these feminist group seriously. Second part why it's probably the goverment is because even tho they censored Amber and Jean they still released Shenhe after which has a far more coomed design. I think they got a warning from the goverment and so changed the female Mondstad characters you meet first. I actually really like the censored outfits, except for Amber which I think is to red. Also Mona would have probably looking cuter with a skirt but it's still a lot better then her old outfit.

Eula isn't relevant in banners but in coom discussions, fanart abs such she's pretty popular alongside Raiden and Miko.

When she first released her navel was showing and then they censored it. I don't know if this specifically was the feminist group or the government.
Also call me reading too much into the coom science, but I'm pretty sure Miko was supposed to have side-boob line to her armpit originally. The black top(?) under looks like Candace's breast cover aswell. The only area the government doesn't seem to mind is legs it seems.

I think Albedo is one of the best designed characters with neat backstory and as far as I know alot of people who wished for him don't even use him but just like the character.
The lore surrounding him is really good with whole several Albedos, Khaerineah(or however it's pronounced) his dragon brother, like do much good stuff and no Albedo event? I think I'm agreeing with nona who's gonna quit, I'll do the same thing too before February.
Genshin reached the point for me where now it's like every other game with no "end game", wait for chara, run around with chara then rinse and repeat. All these bastards had to do was add an Albedo event and I won't be disappointed ffs.

That was the best one for me too, Xinyan and "big bro" Childe had the cutest interactions and dungeons were challenging enough to be remembered. Even the place had a great design in the boss area.

I'm a lorefag and was always willing to read through the pretentious writing for a crumb of anything interesting, but now it's repeating the same point 3 or more times before going to next point like
>"Candace asked us to go to the village, what was it called?"
>"Aaru village is where Candace wants us to go to"
>"The village where Candace lives is not that far from here"
^not a literal example but this is how I feel it's going for a while, and unfortunately I think I'm losing interest before we get Dain's quest/banner/whatever.

Nta but that's what I hate about the dialogue so much. I've played a lot of text heavy games and I normally don't feel the need to skip dialogue but genshin's is SO long and tells so little. I don't even know how it manages to stretch out sentences and concepts so much. They really repeat the same shit three times before moving on and then do it again. Now I skip most of the dialogue even in the main quest and I still know what it's about, you can really just skim through it and you'll get the same amount of information.

You guys are so right about the dialogue, to much repeating and Paimon is the worst offender imo. It feels like everything she says is filler or just repeated dialogue but dumbed down.

It would be great to get a skin for Benny. No one would complain about a skin for Benny, everyone loves that guy, both metafags and story enjoyers.
If it was "for the girls" it would be an Ayato skin, not an Ayaka skin. Do women even like Ayaka? Obviously can't speak for everyone but I find her so dull and boring.

No. 265094

She already said
>bonus points for not giving it a $30 pricetag
Because Diluc's is the most expensive one so far, so she knows. Maybe a normal priced one?
I want a Kaeya one too, but with how they are a hit or miss(mostly miss) keeping the original character essence they will most likely fail him. I thought I'd like Diluc's skin but his head somehow doesn't fit his body, like his body is too skinny for his head… or the head is too weird on it. Idk I know nitpick alot but anyone know what I mean?

I get what hoyo mean by this, some girls like wearing cute dresses, right? So it's for girls, doesn't matter if alot of them don't even play Ayaka, as long as she isn't showing alot of skin = for girls.
I agree with you btw, if they want to give us something, let it be Ayato or Thoma. But that won't be for a while since they don't want to "fill" the skin shop with guys, that would threaten the average moid similar to how we haven't got a little boy character yet. And probably never will.

No. 265284

Yeah this is my main issue with Genshin's dialogue. I think the lore and the story is really interesting and I want to learn more, which is why it's such a nuisance that the dialogue has been made hard to follow due to the amount of repetition. First someone explains a thing, then Paimon repeats the thing, someone confirms the repeated thing, then you get distracted by stupid in-jokes about Paimon being dumb and suddenly they drop lore on you and you accidentally miss it because you were skipping all of that filler and there's no way to backtrack. I genuinely think Paimon ruins all of the dialogue in the game, every time there's a scene where she's not present the dialogue becomes much more straightforward and easier to follow.

Thank you! I’m really not good at building characters but Scara is genuinely so fun and strong for me too! With skyward atlas I’m at around 10k per charged attack with him with shit artifacts which surprised me! I have a harder time figuring out Ayato though. A crit slash is like 6k which felt a bit low. Seems like his f2p weapon options were worse than expected.

Ayato's all about lightning fast attacks rather than big boy burst numbers. I personally like to use him in freeze teams rather than trying to vape with him. There's enough cryo units that make a big freezing circle that you can easily hold enemies down and go to town on them with his E.

Some people like using him in electro-charged teams too, but I've always found that clunky without a healer personally.

Almighty nonas
In Ayato's first banner I skipped him for Venti and now I want him for the bishie Harem but want Alhaithem too (for the same reason)
I have exhausted 51 wishes close to either winning or losing the 50/50 I have:
>12k primos approx
>3.5k crystals

Do you recommend I go wishing until I get 5 stars? If I lose pity then good Alhaithem guaranteed but if I get Ayato, will the future primos be enough for a potential loss of a 50/50 before alhaithem?

Oh okay thanks anon good to know! Who do you put in his freeze teams? I just tried Ayato National and now I see the bigger numbers.
It's almost 1 am and I'm tired so this might be wrong kek.
Okay so you need 30 more pulls. If you lose the 50/50 on Ayato banner that's gonna be another ca 80 pulls at worst to get him. So if you hit hard-ish pity and lose the 50/50 you'll need 100 more pulls in total to get a guaranteed Ayato.
>12k primos approx
>3.5k crystals
That is 75 wishes + ca 22 wishes = 97 wishes/pulls

So yeah if you're unlucky you'll have enough for one guaranteed 5-star. Let's say you're lucky and win the 50/50 at 80 wishes in total on Ayato. Then you would have 67 wishes left for Alhaitham which would not guarantee him or even grant you the opportunity to reach 50/50 if we imagine that you need to hit 80 for hard-ish pity.

This ended up being a rant but I really share the same feelings as some anons pointed out before. Now that I've got Scaramouche there is nothing that really makes me hyped about genshin anymore. At this point I only care about the characters introduced early on/maybe even only pre-inazuma. Of course I look forward to see how Kaveh's gameplay is etc but the game itself feels boring now that I have the character I longed for (scara) and I've seen how they wrapped up his story. I feel done. The only thing that might have saved me from this feeling was if they made an Albedo dragonspine lore bomb event again but since they're skipping that this winter there is nothing to look forward to?

Like for fucks sake Venti literally says that we've already met him before and that it's all a loop. Childe and Scara have been to the abyss yet we have no questions to ask them about how it is/how to get there? Fucking Albedo knows Gold and Alice who can create life without and know about life in other worlds outside of Teyvat. Kaeya being royalty in Khaenriah got revealed in Diluc's skin event of all things as if that isn't a huge thing the traveler could ask about. A good example of how fucking tired this is getting is by looking at the story quests. Venti, Zhongli, Childe had intriguing story quests that revealed so much about Teyvat and was relevant to the traveler. Now what did we gain from Nilou's story quest?… The game loses its spark the longer it drags everything out.

Oh my god this is exactly how I feel.
I don't think they want to work hard, add or link any lore because they saw their money comes from retarded waifu chasers so why bother? I am fucking salty there is no Albedo/dragonspine lore event and maybe alot of nonas will disagree with me but the Scara story sucked ass, I wished there was something more to him.
A year ago I thought sunk cost fallacy wouldn't let me ditch the game but what always pulled me back is the Mond/Liyue's character lore and since Shenhe dropped with the interlude quest I feel things are lacking, even sumeru. I'll give this game one last chance with the lantern rite event, if it's wholesome I'll stay but if not I'm ditching it (but staying for the fanart).
Sorry for the rant, I'm just disappointed.

Nta but agree anon, Scara's story was awful and my standards have been in hell for hoyo since day one. As much as I love the bitch shota trope, it doesn't even make any sense for a character like him to act the way he does after all that. It feels like he originally had a different backstory planned but they had to gut it after the botched Inazuma arc and give him a rushed new one that would line up with that, but didn't give him a personality change to fit his new story so that they wouldn't piss off the people who wanted him from the get go. The story still ended up ruining most of the things I liked about him, including his design-he looks like picrel now. Genshin's story has become soulless fanservice to an obnoxious degree.

I swear Sumeru was only hyped up for it's story because Inazuma's was so bad it looked good in comparison. People hyped up Liyue's after Inazuma too like it wasn't a shitshow in its own right. My sunk cost fallacy mindset has finally worn off too, even if I haven't wasted money in game in forever I now need to stop wasting my time with it too.

Imo the problem with this thread isn't the anons who complain about the game or the ones who don't mind some things about it, it's the anons that bitch about them. Retard's been thrown around a lot and it's too scrote-like. Makes me think of reddit every time.
I wasn't even one of the original Scara wanters but I fell for him a bit before he was released. Now that I have him, I don't really see myself being interested in future characters? I feel like I got the ones I care about and any future ones may just feel like Eula filler lmao there's something about Mondstadt and Liyue characters that feel more like home.

I mean people did the same thing for Diluc (I'm people kek). But also you have to remember if you buy the monthly welkin you already have a lot of those blue currency to immediately get the skin. I did that with Diluc so I didn't have to recharge any money for when his skin arrived.

Lolcow is not your personal hugbox. Your opinions and feelings will be challenged. This is the way it always has been. Either accept it or leave.

It doesn’t even bother me at all, I like Lisa’s scholar skin and Ayaka’s spring skin. Now if anons think Lisa’s skin is low effort, I can definitely see it too even if I like it. They’re entitled to that opinion and I really like seeing different perspectives. That’s literally what a discussion is. What you describe is not a discussion, it’s everyone agreeing with only positive comments.

Official new year art 3

No idea what Kaeya is doing here with the pyro 5 stars kek

No. 266078

Did they just hire 3 random artist with no knowledge of the game? The artist style is so different, the Ei and Yae is the worst drawn imo. The last pic makes no sense, these characters have no connection to eachother. I understand Yoimiya because of the fireworks but why the others? Also Kaeya is the only male in the new year art and hes in the background too…

Also i get why Shenhe and Ganyu ard together but Yanfei is only there because she's adepti? I don't understand, atleast they are drawn in a pretty artstyle. Is this also the official Chinese new year art? Because I'm not impressed

No. 266081

I mean sometimes it is though. The white day art of male characters and stuff. I just think that when mihoyo hires random artists to do the art the artists are coomers who end up choosing to draw the slutty characters.
I don't know about any official chinese new year art, all I know is that they have a huge fan art project that the official account is promoting in China celebrating the chinese new year/another year with genshin. Pic related is the key visual. This one >>266073 was exclusively posted on Genshin's Japan platforms though. The rest >>266074 >>266075 were released globally.

I had a ton of fun, but I’m easy to please because I’m a casual on and off player, and games are not one of my main hobbies. I really liked Sumeru and a bunch of the events this year.
If there’s anything I really want it’s more interesting and numerous new skins, and I also would ideally like more Zhongli content during lantern rite, that would be my dream. I don’t care about Keqing or those “this girl is working too hard” stories but I liked the other lantern rite stuff.

No. 266148

Incoming late autism but it's really not about making a "hugbox" rather than having some basic conversational standards, some anons rarely offer any real interesting insight on things like the writing and instead make low IQ "this totally rips off x" claims because of some vague similarity after revealing they barely even read the dialogue/story, blogpost about wanting to quit the game (seriously, why don't they?) and aggro all over other anons over their positive opinions, ironically enough taking someone else liking a thing they don't as a personal attack themselves and demanding their own crybaby hugbox.

The amount of dooming over Cyno's and Scara's kits in this thread was baffling especially since everyone shut up immediately post-release, it prevents actual discussion and possibilities of utilizing them and misleads anons who get discouraged and refuse to pull for the character they were hyped for. When Heizou was revealed anons were throwing tantrums over how they hated his design and attacking those who just commented on how cute they find him. The same happens with literally every male character that gets released and the absolute tard rage over them makes it hard to believe that I'm supposedly interacting with other women. Being so aggressive towards people who are just having a good time and enjoying things is /v/ tier incel behavior that makes nobody look as smart and edgy as they think they do. I encourage opinions of all sorts and I have my own gripes with Genshin and Mihoyo but it's embarrassing to invest so much emotion on a game you despise.

No. 266156

Ntas but while I shut up about Cyno, I also never used my Cyno after I pulled him. He's still level 50 kek hate his playstyle. Scara on the other hand is fun and wasn't ~doomposted~ much at all gameplay wise here, nor was Heizou.

The anons you replied to were still right, you're an annoying autist and very reddit. No discussion is invalid just because you don't approve of it, and women are under no obligation to immediately fall in love with whatever boy of the month hoyoverse shit out. The discussion isn't impeding anything either because if you haven't noticed, the only time the thread is active is when people are fighting or complaining. No one is coming in here to sperg about team building with you, sorry. It's pointless in a game this easy. Throw your favorites together and go.

No. 266161

Nona I… don't get what do you want exactly. You really do want a hugbox where everything is going as you want which isn't a bad thing, but this works better in a forum format and not an anonymous image board.

Again, part of being in a community is seeing all types of fans, including doomposters, is Genshin your first fandom? Post what you want to talk about, ones who are interested will reply to you and you do your part if someone is being an ass. I'm one of the people who are upset by Alhaithem nerf and "" doomposted "" about him but will still get him, like other gorls what did you want me/others to do to be on your good graces and "good fans"? (not saying I will kek but what you're complaining about is absurd)

How many posts were wasted by complaining instead starting your fave subject? Girl get on with it, and get into other fandoms to get used to it.

His whole backstory is him basically being trafficked at a young age after his own mother left him homeless and vulnerable to exploitation instead of caring for him. His whole complex surrounding him being a puppet instead of a human is probably what an AI or a sex-doll would feel if they were thoroughly dehumanized and left traumatised. Pretty great backstory desu; the best one we've probably seen yet.

Nta, I whole-heartedly love that part and how creepy Dottore was, it was really well written. But what comes after is what bothered me with how meh he was? I didn't want him to be cringe-vengeful of course but I expected more to his character after he remembered who he was after that setup, basically we meet him again, fight his mecha boss then talk for a bit then it ended.
I really wanted just a bit more angst, him interacting with Kazuha in any way (while Kazuha having no idea who he is) and hearing Dottore next plan/promise to fuck shit up and I would've been a happy gal.

And I know I'm beating a dead horse by now but I'd really love to see his old skin be purchasable or something, I love the design elements of his current one but the colors are bothering me, too much blue and white.

I did it. I finally got free, I'm not playing this game anymore. No more scrotes talking about how their waifus are so much better than the male charas, no more unsolicited porn images of their waifus in every community or server, no more Abyss, no more artifacts, no more saving for charas that wont be at the same tier as the uwu waifus, no more!!!!
Been playing the game for 2 years, hoping that someday female players would be treated fairly. Yesterday, I spent all my 190 pulls on standard in a fit of rague. Now, I have no savings. You win mihoyo! Good job!
I was addicted to this game, which was causing a toll on my mental health, not gonna lie. It may take time for my brain to get used to not playing everyday religiously, but I think this is for the better.
I might play from time to time because I like a lot of characters, events and the story is interesting. But I'm tired.
Hope someone reads this and thinks about taking a break if they are adicted. Try playing other games (been playing nuzlocke Pokémon, Fire Emblem and Dreamlight Valley), you might realize you don't have to suck mihoyo's cock to get some entertainment. Unlike some people think, this is not the only action/RPG game oriented towards female players. I, too, have huffed that same copium, but tbh it's not like that. Go see greener pastures, nona! There's a whole world out there for you! Cheers.

I just want to run 2 internationals man, one for Ayato and the other for Childe but pyro applies are so bad other than Xiangling. Wish Thoma was more AOE but hey if she's like Fischl than that's great.

Congrats, Nonnie!! I’ve been playing for about two years as well and I have to admit I’m bored as well.
Here’s some tips for nonnies:
If you’re playing for 10-30mins daily take a break
you’re bored in game take a break
you have no quests or events to do take a break
If doing anything feels like a chore then it’s time to take a break.

Work on projects, clean your dwelling, see your friends etc. then come back to Genshin if needed.

Ok i may be the anon at >>266852 but I actually like his outfit. Its Indian dhoti plus kameez which as a desi person fills me with much serotinin.

That's be worse if that was the case. I'm no Desi/Indian but I remember studying all about it uni and fell in love with it and this design? It's doing the bare minimum of appreciation to said culture.

Literally no one gives a shit about the archons and their lore now that theyre confirmed female. Women by far are the majority of fan-artists / stans. Sure men theory-fag a lot but you can actually FEEL the excitement over the archons die in the female and thus more dominant side of the fandom once the majority of them were confirmed to be waifu coomer baits.

Imagine how much hyped the fandom would be if the tsaritsa was actually a honkai expat of Kevin Kaslana? Everyone would be going insane over the smallest leaks for him. Thered be art everywhere and discussions about him and lore. And yet Ive seen more stans smothering over Varka and pre-release Heizou than I have over these whores. No one gives a fuck anymore

This is so ugly. Unlike most nonnas here it doesn’t bother me that the rest of the archons are female since I enjoyed both Ei and Nahida as characters but god this design is so bad it should be a crime. Makes me wanna drop the game ngl like. You can’t tell me this clown is a whole archon. We have amazing designs like Cyno or Ningguang that give of ethereal vibes and they are just common people and this bitch was supposed to be divinity? She looks like a background character. That one girl that dies at the first episode of a survival anime. Goddammit. I guess they weren’t lying when they said all the good designers moved on to the new Honkai game (look at picrel, he’s glorious).

I'm genuinely curious hearing your positive opinion about Ei and why you like her.
My problem with female archon isn't that they're female but they're a moid's idea of a female and this lameass design shows.
The art style is neat ngl but if you read a couple of manhuas or followed few Chinese artists you'd see that this design is exhausted. It's as common as guys with long ponytail kek.

It doesn't help that the best stories of an archon and their people were male archons. Ei was a disappointment and Nahida is good/eh? Nahida wasn't insufferable but there wasn't something else to think about like with Venti we had Nameless bard, Jean and Diluc's ancestors to add the extra layer of depth and how they care about Mondstadt in thier own way, Liyue gave us the fatherly-like love from Zhongli to people of Liyue by making them depend on themselves and gave the extra layer of Adepti and how they still care and want to protect Liyue.
But Sumeru? Nahida? I hoped we'd get something from King Deshret(sp?) for the extra layer from Cyno and co. but there wasn't anything to think about just her and how that guy locked her. I feel Cyno (one of my faves) was useless in the grand scheme of things and Alhaithem/Dehya would've filled his position in the story which sucks. In his story quest it was better but that's not saying much, my boy Cyno was dealt a bad hand both in playability and role.

That isn't a great feat when the other two are not only two of the weakest designs among archons but the weakest designs among all genshit characters.

I like her for those reasons as well. Her coat is really cute and she doesn't have any retarded coomer armpit or booba window or thigh high shit going on, it's refreshing. I could do without the weird leg straps but I still like her a lot overall. It's funny you say that she reminds you of old school anime because I immediately thought the same when I saw her.
Anons who are whining about her not looking like a "real" archon need to realize that we have gotten that complaint for literally every archon so far kek.

How can you say that while liking Ei, Ei her design is so bad and doesn't even look like a shogun. Also the hydro archon seems to be involved with the law in Fontaine a lot, even joining in the court room. I think her outfit is appropriate.

I don't want to sound like a negative nancy but I think Fontaine will be like Inazuma waifu 2.0. I hope that atleast we will get more than two 5* male characters.

That's because every female character in genshin has something to please the coomers. Yunjin is cute but they made her skirt fly around while moving so you can see her entire ass and even a bit of her waist and anons are allowed to complain about it, just like they were complaining about the shit male skins.

Again the yellow lady but this time with more details. I like her colors, hair, hat, corset and the back of her dress/skirt. She has been cursed with the Ei stripper shorts tho and is forced to show her armpits.
I do think longer pants would have suited her better but in genshin female characters design standard she is not coomerish at all. Also they are very short shorts but not booty shorts imo and she doesnt have the big thigh spill as Kuki it seems. The character you shared has a very cute design but I don't we will get ever something like that in Genshin. I just kinda accepted the fact that female character will either wear thights, short shorts or dresses that will reveal panties very easily because of messed up animations. It's sad i know but I just have lowered my standards kek.

>you even called yunjin coomerbait
No one did that, people were just dissapointed about the stupid upskirt animation that she and Ayaka share.
You are honestely more annoying then the people who just say they dislike the design…
There only seems to be about 2 or 3 people who dislike it and i think they can have that opinion and have a valid point. Please just leave the thread if you can't handle simple discussions.

Many Honkai designs are fucking disgusting, especially the skins. Genshin obviously has fanservice-y male gaze in it but it's honestly really tame for a gacha game, and any anons ITT who say that this game has better designs than Genshin are out of touch with reality. At least Genshin wouldn't make a swimsuit skin for any of the loli's unlike this yurishit coomer game.

No. 267157

Yuck, just yuck, didn't know it was this bad. When I used "just like honkai" I didn't mean the coomer element, but the design one. See how most have the black/white/color distribution on all designs? Compare this to like Gorou that has 3 main colors but extra small elements with other colors to make it fun to look at. Kazuha is monotone-y aswell but has the orange sleeve and chest piece thing to break the boring look.

Either nitpicking or tinfoiling but I feel that not only the original designers that made me love alot of characters are gone and so did the original quality control. I feel majority of characters are soulless, seeing the characters in the quest I didn't feel excited to get them like Jean,Venti, Diluc, Zhongli, Childe, Signora (LOL) Ningg, Beidou…etc. The only one I want is Alhaithem and that's only because I have a reverse Harem in teapot kek.

Some leakers have come forward and said that the leaks still have identifiable things on them and that it's dangerous to spread it for the leaker's safety, as if we care.

>Star Rail has some of the blandest, most forgettable designs I've ever seen. Love yourself and play games that have male designs other than "guy in a suit".
Based. People always gush over the guys in Star Rail but their designs are so fucking bland, I'd much rather enjoy the Genshin designs that are way more memorable than whatever Star Rail has.

Anyway, Fontaine having EIGHT female characters to 3 male characters makes me want to kermit but 2 tall males sounds promising. The female characters will most likely all look like those generic steampunk strippers with a one-note personality and no story relevance like was the case with half of the Sumeru girls. Who the fuck even remembers Layla anymore?

As much as I fucking hate Ei I have to admit that she looks gorgeous from the behind, but then she turns around and it's just a mess. We've picked apart her design multiple times in this thread before so I won't repeat what everyone has said before but she's so far the only Archon who hasn't had to hide in some way yet they made her look like she's wearing undergarments.

I really don't want to doompost because I hate it but I have a creeping fear of Fontaine being Inazuma redux, as in only waifu characters being released and a power struggle between two opposing forces being the central theme. Sumeru was such a huge upgrade from Inazuma and got me hooked in the game again because the story was actually compelling and Nahida was interesting as a character, I hope they don't fuck it up again.

>Doesn't like Kavetham

you need to be asking yourself that question, not only for lapping up the lamest genshit bl ship but for thinking ei looks gorgeous from any angle. people don't say alhaitham is ugly because he's gay, kaeya is the gayest in the game yet also the best looking. it's because he's ugly in the same way as those star rail characters posted up thread.

Yes I really like her design but I was dissapointed with just her story in general. Like you mentioned I thought she would be more involved to enkanomiya and also as a mastermind war tactician she didn't do much in the Inazuma war imo. I wanted her to overthrow Raiden together with the help of Ayaka so bad, but alas.

Klee both her design and character are cute. I however do not have her since I simply don't like her gameplay. I feel like she's kinda clunky to play like you said and I prefer Yanfei more as a pyro catalyst user.

It would have been easy to include her. Even the Enjou fight would have been a test run for kokomi. I think it would be cool for the lower ranking Vishaps to fuck off after they realize who kokomi is. Whereas the big ones would be offended she even shown her face in enkanomiya after water dragon dipped. She could even find out about her people’s past the same way traveler did and maybe apologize to tsumi lol. Idk the possibilities did seem endless.

Thank you for that btw, didn't know he was "insincere". Does that mean he's related to/is Pantalone?

First rule of leaks: male characters will never be leaked at the rate female characters are. It's been established that most leakers are men and intentionally want to fuck over female fans (such as with the troll rumors they have put out just to mess with them) so no need to doom over all the waifu reveals and those regarding male characters should be taken with a grain of salt.

There were literally screenshots of their private chats saying that they were doing it on purpose. Go contribute to the statistics, Y-kun.

We don't know if Baizhu is related to Pantalone or whether they even know each other, but he's basically using Qiqi because she is an immortal zombie and he has some type of illness that he thinks could be cured by studying her - that's why he keeps her around. Tbh, I have a feeling that HYV is going to try to walk back on the implication that he doesn't care about Qiqi at all because it does come off as pretty creepy and weird instead of wholesome like the more recent scenes he has had with her during the limited events you mentioned.

No. 267401

It's like they intentionally avoid making anything cool. Will male players get insecure if the female characters are a little bit more capable or have a cool backstory?
I hope they do change that whole insincere part because I remember some event scenes of them together and the energy seemed so harmonious and slightly nurturing. It'd be so fucked if this grown man was using this poor, little dead girl for study and the whole time hadn't developed any care for her but only saw her as a means to an end.

Yeah, Ayato Alhaitham and Baizhu. Then I guess they might introduce Lyney in 4.0-4.3 since he’s (and his twin) the poster boy for Fontaine. Other than that who knows when we’ll get the next male. Spend your primos nonas

This can't be for real what the fuck. I was so excited for Fontaine but guess I'll either spend 4.0 rolling for cons from reruns or fuck off from the game altogether. It's bad enough everyone looks like prostitutes in a steampunk bordello but 4-5 short females and a loli vs 2 males? Or 1,5 if it's true that Lyney and Lynette are one character? Fuck Mihoyo.

Scrotes hate it when female characters show a little bit of agency or personality. Might explain why most short female characters are nothing but one note personalities.

this is just inazuma 2.0, in inazuma we had 3 males in the archon quest, thoma, gorou and kazuha, but after that they introduced itto, ayato and heizou (and you can say scara is still inazuma). and kazuha is more relevant to the plot than most waifus
sumeru actually has less male characters than inazuma, only 4 cyno, tighnari, alhaitham and kaveh so i wouldn't worry too much. waifus are usually treated as filler that's why they release more of them

Leakers have guessed 3.6 for Baizhu for a couple of months now.
>sumeru actually has less male characters than inazuma
Yet sumeru feels so much more focused on female players starting off with a male character focused story and male banners. Inazuma had fucking Ayaka and Yoimiya dates. Fontaine gives me bad vibes with 2 factions that are filled with girls rivaling each other. Since mihoyo can’t write female characters in an interesting way, it’s gonna be as surface-level and retarded as Inazuma.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees this, it's like they handed writing duties to female staff for a moment because all the characters were really compelling, Dottore was the most menacing villain yet, the female characters actually had plot relevance, the archon wasn't a selfish fucking retard like Ei etc. It felt like a different game. Inazuma was just a waifu showcase with a convoluted wartime conspiracy plot only some autistic fanboys would come up with.

Right? They could have all sorts of cool princely Victorian outfits and from what the leaks have shown and what you can make out from the shitty pixelated images it's just female Honkai rehashes.

Yup you're right, it's treated like a joke "Hutao chasing Qiqi with a shovel" bit kinda sad lol.

I don't even like her as a Qiqi but just find her tragic; dead kid who obeys orders and forgets everything? Poor kid.

Of course Ei is shit but you know what pisses me off? We're not allowed to hate her lore-wise. She totes redeemed herself guise, she drank Dango milk with MC guise doesn't matter what happened in the war we were in lmao oh and stopped the puppet or whatever shit they defend her with so we ought to love her now.
The fact that she's still painted positively after Scara quest when all of his troubles existed because she ditched him is just ridiculous.

>We're not allowed to hate her lore-wise
Oh yes this makes my blood boil. Traveler still dislikes Childe and goes around warning Yoimiya not to get close to him because he’s a fatui when they’re literally just playing with kids. Our last conversation with Scara is also the same way. Traveler still dislikes him since Paimon literally says "I still don’t like you" to Scara’s face as he replies that they hopefully won’t need to see each other again. I get that both Childe and Scara have killed good people and that the traveler is against that but it becomes so hypocritical when the game forces us to love Ei.

This is why I like both tbh. Going hard on characters that did wrong is great for story-wise morals and character development.
Actually, would it hurt them to do to Ei what they did to Childe? Just the scene in the dungeon weakened by his 3rd form added so much to personality. Despite all the moralfagging on Twitter on how "problematic" characters are, Childe and Scara get away even with those types not only because theyre attractive characters but they are great they don't even want to apply Twitter rules kek.
I actually don't know why I sperg when we all agree on our hate towards Ei
very beautiful Pic nona, tyvm

With Liyue's lore and character designs seeming so much more well researched and inspired than those of the other nations, a part of me wishes Mihoyo had based the entire world off China. You'd have Manchuria as the cyro nation, the southwestern forests for dendro, a silk road inspired pyro, the possibilities are endless. I'd just be worried about nationalism/one China stuff creeping in.

If Yae was really as smart as the writers kept telling us she is, Ei would have been made some sort of figurehead and had her duties handed over to Sara/Ayato/Kokomi/literally anyone else. I wouldn't trust her with running a hotdog stand after the shit she pulled, let alone a country (and it would tie into the themes previously established by the story too).

I think the best part of Liyue is the teens(?) not the adults. XL, XQ and Chongyun are such a cute trio, Hutao, Xinyan, Yunjin all are adorable characters despite the crap they're put it (fanservice), if they ever (they never will) make an event about the Liyue's teens I'd die a happy gal. XQ and Chongyun being friends with Xiangling but not Xinyan infact she kinda pisses them off, both are annoyed by Hutao, XQ gushes about Yunjin, Yunjin is BFF with both XL and Xinyan and XQ teasing Chongyun is adorable af.

Why didn't they give her a more badass pose instead of this dainty "I almost stepped on dog poo" one? Dehya was so cool and I loved her in the story but Mihoyo is actually allergic to letting their female characters fully embrace having a personality outside of coomer pandering.

I doubt they're going to "censor" Baizhu but instead update the design/model. He came out in 1.0 which was 2.5 years ago, the models have been getting gradually better since then.

Very reliable leaker. The character Neuvilette we’ve been hearing so much about is actually a tall male! Might even be the only tall male. He’s important to the story and has a high position of power. He dislikes the corrupt hydro archon.

He’s another blue character so I wonder if he’s hydro too.

You don't have to personally like Ningguang, I was just using her as an example of a character with a well researched design. Her finger guards, hairpin, pipe, cheongsam, they were all chosen with intention and reference to Qing dynasty China. You could replace her with Zhongli/Xiao/Yunjin or someone else if you'd prefer, idc. My main point was that they took inspiration from China on more than a shallow aesthetic level, which is more than can be said for the Epcot pavilion level mishmashes that are Mond/Sumeru/now Fontaine (leaving out Inazuma because Mihoyo is full of weebs, which is reflected in its design). I'm not just talking about character design, either. It's not even surprising, they're a Chinese company after all.

I think so too, I think even if they moved studios they'll still be pressured to censor the 'sissy boy' and honestly I have no idea what was going through their head designing him.
Showing shoulders, showing thigh close to crotch, corset and tight leggings idk despite wanting equal sluttiness(?) for boys and girls in genshin this doesn't make me comfortable. Maybe be because he looks like a kid? Maybe the model will look older.
I think the only legging male character is Venti and fucker got femboy'd to death by moids, I don't Lyney to get this shitty treatment too kek.

Okok I'm the anon who complains about black/white/color honkai-esque color combo they're fucking my brain with but enough blue already! Yeah it's the common color for hydro and cryo but the amount of blue without any other complimentary color is killing me. It's fine to do colors that are different than the color of the element, like Itto sure he's Geo but has red, purple and dark grey more than yellow, freaking Childe is hydro and he's more grey and Red with barely any blue. Like you can't tell me they aren't failing character design aspect.

Sumeru screwed my brain, it has themes from Persia, Arab countries, Sri Lanka, India and the whole South East Asia in general which I don't mind, but why mix and match? Liyue is China obviously, Inazuma is Japan, duh, Mondstadt is German as everyone can notice but sumeru? Good god it's like they liked random elements and slapped them together instead of being independently one place that inspired them like the previous three.

ntayrt but damn that's crazy cuz that's how I feel about women who like them. a bland yuribait couple, one with a coomer design, the other with a generic chinese rich lady look you've seen done better 100 times over if you've ever consumed other chinese media? I'll pass. not even the people who claim to like them actually like them beyond a super surface level i.e. reposting fanart that all looks the same. even confirmed nlog eimiko fans act more invested in their pairing.

beigguang is a pairing no one would care about if it weren't for the weird political nature of western fandom spaces. it doesn't have enough going on to give you a reason to dislike it and with that fandom obligation to support wuhluhwuh gaslight gatekeep girlbosses, you get nlogs pretending to care about beigguang once a year then going back to the bl ship of the day.

No. 267728

The people I see hating Beidou and Ningguang, not even as a couple but generally, tend to be the ALL WOMEN ARE GARBAGE fujos who think you're a moid if you dare say you don't hate all the female characters. Like what you like and dislike what you dislike I guess, it just reeks to me of nlog when even elegant, tasteful characters like Ningguang get hate.
It's funny you say Beidou is coomer too because yeah, she exposes a lot of skin, but I don't really read it as all that coomerish. She's on the ocean so she's wearing a swimsuit. It's a lot better than crap like Shenhe, Ei, and Yelan to me.

Most Genshin fujos that I come across like Beidou and Ningguang or at least remain fairly neutral or indifferent to them. Because it bears repeating as the scrote always comes in guns blazing sperging about "fujotrannies" in this thread, exclusive husbando collecting isn't synonymous with being a fujo. from what I've seen it's mostly the kind of female players who hate every female character, even the rare good/inoffensive ones, just out of principle because they're taking space and resources away from their potential husbandos and then the actual homophobes (both female and male) who simply hate the characters because of the lesbian implications. The latter is more likely to hate only Beidou though since they consider her a "nasty dyke" and ship Ningguang with Zhongli.

I don't disagree but the yuri ones are worse since moidhoyo can't write female characters to save their lives

Jfc, this is it. This is it. She did literally everything that could be done wrong. Like you mentioned, we could even argue she's the reason the good twin died and because she was such a fucking slacker, when it came time to rule and guide her people, she gave it all up and ran away. Imagine doing everything in your power to avoid doing some work that you create sentient beings either to destroy or throw them away and never mention them again. And then when she finally creates a doll she likes, her dumbass didn't make a power kill switch to shut it off. How did she, a god, make a doll that's too st
