Anyone doing a wishing ritual btw? I'm thinking of doing something with Raiden Shogun

>>261259>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
I hate being in the Europe server because I don't have time to play going straight to work so hope you post the results here and good luck nona!

I so regret not being with the Scara wanters a year ago. I could've prepared for now! He's so freaking cute I'm punching grass rn. >>261322
Great art and there ship dynamic would be so cute!

30 pity, 50 rolls saved, no guarantee. Wish me luck nonnas, I hope I get scara or at least tighnari if i lose the 50/50
I'm not throwing my Razor off shit, but Sara, Sayu, Fischl (sorry bb girl), Jean, Beidou (land on your feet, my queen), Sucrose, and who ever else I'm forgetting? They can walk the plank.
And you're so right. Imagine Sara gladly falling as she would feel she's sacrificing herself in Ei's place. Splat kek

Here’s the code
We've got less than 10 minutes, nonnie
! I'm excited too!
Good morning EU nonas
My sister updated the ps for me and I lost to Diluc by got him at freaking 157 wishes, Alhaithem funds where art though
Hope your luck is better than mine honestly
Of course same to-other-regions nonas!
I just feel so bitter and so idk how to play him. I'm used to playing Kazuha and Venti but not sure how to get him to be infused with element?

Okay wish me luck Scaraether nonnies I just woke up!
Aw im sorry it took you so long to get him, i got him in 20 pulls but also i was already pretty close to pity. >>261500
Good luck nonna! You can do it!>>261507
based and truthpilled
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>>261503
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

Sorry for the samefag but I'm fuming.
They fucking removed Scaramouche from Ei and Childe's voicelines. Gonna kms now
Oh my god nona you have an awesome eye for fanart thank you so much I accidentally saved it twice
Now I have no choice but to dive in pixiv and Twitter for content>>261549
Funnily enough I am rooting for them because this shitty writing is making alot cooler/deeper than the good guys.>>261550Exactly 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 >>261558

Me too! Which is good because I only had 20 fates to spend. I love his kit so much.
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!
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).>>261593
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. >>261597
I keep forgetting how to go straight up, however since i play Childe i do not spam his E.
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)>>261602
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?

>>261550>>261567>>261565The 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.>>261519
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.>>261505>>261507
Y'all get so mad over dumb shit. No ships are canon and everyone wants the Traveler, calm down.

Anyway does this appear the same for anyone else? Her ascention materials are Henna berries but in the trial it's Cyno ScarabsI definitely did not waste 20 mins looking for scarabs haha
>>261618>Y'all get so mad over dumb shit. No ships are canon and everyone wants the Traveler, calm down.
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. >>261575
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.

Gorou is easily my favorite too, nonnie
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. >>261630>Dottoscara>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.>>261709
Scaraether and Scaralumi please!
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
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

Your anger just amuses me.>>261673
We could really use some more good shielders. A Hydro shielder would be neat. For now XQ is probably best since he at least gives resistance to interruption.

The twins are actually royalty of Khaenri'ah. That’s why they’re referred to as such by abyss members. it could also explain why the unknown god targeted them specifically. I feel like dain fucked with irminsul somehow.

Lol what? Just calm down bro. Touch some grass, liking one het ship doesn't mean you hate gay ships or whatever.
Also, I'm by no means above shipping Lumine, I just ship her with Zhongli or Enjou.

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.

I stole that and this from gelborou. Yes it's a coomer site but also has a fair amount of sfw art
(not that I mind nsfw dottore that I see there hue hue)
I used to scour Twitter and pixiv for these but the art isn't that good. Now with the wake of this interlude chapter I hope we'll see more works!
(I too use this thread to increase my folder sizes, thanks sharing nonas) >>261843
LOL you do have a point, especially with the amount of "afab Scara" and top surgery scara I found jfc kill me
But I miss the days where these headcanons were property the fujo/yumejo side and not the trannies.
I played in JP. His Wanderer voice was so cute, soft, and submissive. Shame we won't hear it again anytime soon.
Also.>It's fine. Let them stab their blades into my chest if they so desire. …Maybe that's how it always should have been.
The dialogue between him and the traveler at the end about the Raiden Gokaden makes me think he'd totally let Kazuha take him sexually as 'punishment' too.
I don't have a dog in this fight but it's getting stupid.>nice try

This sucks I just wanted to talk about lore theories.
I want to cry at this image fr>>261925
Agree, desert is so painfully desolate and running across it takes an eternity, I've been dragging my feet exploring it because it's just not as exciting as the rainforest.
I hate the curved structure of the desert structures and pillars too. Hard to properly climb up and the four-leaf sigils aren't always placed in an accessible location.
Scaramouche made it a lot easier though.
The source is trust me bro level of credible but if you unlocked the final images (14th and 15th) in find-the-chest Album you'll see two images of Aranara in a place like what would seem Genshin's style of a rainforest that says sonmething along the lines of "this area isn't open yet" so I'm pretty sure it's the next area>>261880
I wish everyone here was like you
Can you imagine replies not wasted on infighting about ships? It's never about theories or anything fun, each suprisingly are respectable to each's opinion, but muh ships? Kek
What do you gorls think about the TCG? If any even played it. Can't tell if Hoyo wants to make it a physical game too or not since I saw the game's gold box, like buy physical booster/boxes, get highest rarity etc. Similar to Yugioh/MTG

I thought the sibling was a clone since that would line up with them being in Irminsul and not the Traveler
but now I don't know what to think if Irminsul can be fucked with to give everyone false memories.
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.>>261933>>261937
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.
File: 1670580508053.jpg (71.88 KB, 660x583, Screenshot_20221205-013548_Chr…)
- 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.
File: 1670580570284.jpeg (383.44 KB, 2048x1536, FhizBPFWYAINjYp.jpeg)
- 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

anyways alhaithams kit looks like doodoo. rip to the anons who were writing essays to defend cyno from the keqing clone allegations becasue this time alhaitham is undeniably a convoluted dendro keqing clone. their kits are more similar than xingqiu and armpit ladys.

anyone else not impressed by characters that have no practical use outside few or single target battle anymore? unless you can fly, fast go, show me materials, save stamina, or at least pull a cow out your ass, I don't want you.
Oh my god it's literally Keqing.
I mean in reality I'm glad it's easy to infuse his normal attack with dendero but I don't know if I like his burst animation tbh the last move is nice but wish he'd have Keqing's ninja agility or something I don't know what to think about him yet kek.
Thabk you so much for this nona.>>262128
Me honestly, I've even meta'd and 36 every abyss and characters are proving to be boring/useless unless it's for the reason you posted >>262129
I think anon means that it's not new or creative
Otherwise I think he'll be really great with Raiden
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.>>262130>raiden
imo a woodchipper would be better with her (in it)
. and imagine playing co op genshin in current year… shudders
playing since 1.0 and I don't have a single fire type built except bennett. I'm a "wind faggot go nyoooom" type of girl. if you're going to be a one trick pony male dps, be op with male supports or get skipped. the ogre will never be topped.
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". >>262138
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 bloomI 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)
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.>>262141
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.

I'll try fish princess next, I think she even generates more energy for Cyno. I really regret not wishing for Tighnari thinking I'll get him losing 50/50s. Qiqi and Diluc love me so much it seems
>can't have good teams on both sides of abyss
True pain tbh>>262144>>262146
I'm willing to bet my Alhaithem funds (2 wishes) that they'll nerf him so when you use spread he doesn't powercreep other characters
Nice picture and congrats on getting him! >>261608>Congrats on weapon and congrats on future alhaithem!
Thank you! I haven't bothered building faruzan tbh, but i might try him out with venti and mono geo then.>>262126
It has to be a pasta kek.>>262125
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. >>262130
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. >>262146
They changed some animation of Wanderer during beta so they might do something like that again. >>262152>very 5-star that ever gets released is shat on immediately until release when people suddenly realize they're fine as they are and stop bitching kek.

Iirc they didn't really "change" anything about wanderer's animations in beta, just made it the transition between frames smoother and they didn't add sfx or expressions until later because it was playstyle test.

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.
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.
not placeholders, the official beta started today>>262156>Nothing better than a male dps who isn't burst reliant when playing in the overworld
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.
As someone who plays genshin mostly for exploration, I agree. Pulling for kazuha was tbe best think I have ever done, and nahida is a close second because that picking flowers passive is just amazing>>262125
yeah that’s very disappointing, taking back what i said about not rolling for wanderer, i’m gonna go roll for him instead because his kit is at least interesting

The nice thing about Wanderer is he has infinite stamina. His flying stamina doesn’t get consumed by charged attacks and his regular stamina gets replenished while flying. Basically you can get away with spamming his charged attacks.
I called him green diluc but turns out he was green keqing all along. Another skip.

Yeah we knew this since 3.0. Still sad though because the desert world design sucks. Here’s a leak from the current beta. There will be tiiiiny rainforest area expansion though. (Last pic)
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. >>262204

Thank you, nonnie

Do we have any 5 star husbandos after lantern rite except Alhaitham? (If Kaveh really is a 4-star)

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 >>262236
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
Even if Alhaithem is hot! Don't forget your first husbando nonas!!
ew literally chris-chan level of autism >>262244
On ps5 the game and areas load insanely fast though
I am an idiot and forgot to put "4", sorry kek
In Playstation 4 I have to wait like 13-15 seconds for challenges, domains, details and even abyss to load. Which yeah sure I know the obvious thing is to upgrade but I don't play anything but FFs and Genshin and don't really see the need to buy a console just for it,you know? But I know both mobile and PC have graphic options to run better, why don't they add that to Ps4?
The worst thing is that I can't teleport to some high places since my character will hit the ground and die because the area hadn't load yet kek (I'm looking at you, Qingyin Peak's statue)

Alhaitham's idle animation shows him holding these keys!!! Literally crying nonas the lion keychain is the symbol for Kaveh's field in the akademiya. The idle is a direct reference to Alhaitham locking Kaveh out, they're such a cute tsun tsun couple
He will never be Leona Kingscholar
I can't get into those two ngl. I look at them and see hamfisted pandering between two of the blandest male characters they've written yet. They make me feel like I'm watching a commercial, or two sad girls making out at a party to get attention.

>>262425>Standing during his burst runs
I hope they add like a move he does when the hits end, kinda boring ngl
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
Good god I'm sorry about the autism

Why can’t yaoyao pull up in an outfit like this? I wish they stopped giving the kids such short outfits.
Keep your genshit shipwars in tiktok comment sections, fag. We don't care. I happen to despise het, yuri, and yume but that doesn't mean I'm going to blindly consoom whatever crappy fujobait a company sets out for me. They are conveyer belt yaoi made to snag some quick fujobux.
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.
I really hate this if you x then you're a moid/taking opinions from moids rule. Wanting to know more about a character before liking him/shipping him is normal not evil or asking too much
I have only consoomed the story quest to judge their lack of chemistry and lack of Kaveh's character so there wasn't much to know. Which bulletin board did you read this on?>>262444
Actually accurate description of Dehya. I love claymores but She's Xinyan 2 rather than a new character
Are hoyo actually running out of ideas? Was Mondstadt/Liyue their best? >>262442
Moids can't coom to that because adult women also wear that so no way kek
>>262440>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
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?
I didn't even want to offend the Kaveh and Alhaitham shippers but here we go kek.>>262442
This idea would automatically get cut because it doesn't show thigh. You expect the moids to beat it to loli ankles alone? Like degenerates?

>>262427>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
Thanks for the lore btw it's cute and funny.
I just wish the genshin side would calm their tits and chat our of interest not spite. Not everything is an attack on your fave chara or ship.

The 4 stars on this banner are a scam, 200 wishes wishes and only C4 Frauzan
Scara does great damage without any benny or Faruzan buff like 10k per normal attack and 17k for charged but I want big pp damage to have him, Frauzan, Venti and Kazuha slaying everything in light green numbers
But screw it, I'll have to save for Alhaithem now and hope to get her randomly like the Beidous and Xinyan's I got kek>>262513
Yay, let's hope this inspires hoyo to release his old clothes as a skin
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!>>261933
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.

YES. All my Liyue's are C6 except Yunjin so maybe her, or Yaoyao if she's not in Alhaithem's banner. Guess this makes Alhaithem's banner on the second phase, right? >>262546

I use Lisa in overworld. She’s easy to build and good at c2.
Literally a character from this game. I didn't care about them at first, but when people get so intense and stan-like it turns me off completely. For a lack of better words, their behavior's cringe and the character's now marked with a scarlet letter and not even for anything scandalous or fun. I'm also on my cycle so everything's annoying and everyone's feelings are giving me whiplash, but I think I'm right about this.

! You did it!
Really starting to believe that it was honkai writers who wrote the story for sumeru. Not only the story is better and has the same vibes (like that sudden animu pic when that girl whose guard is dehya talked about her encounter with nahida + samsara bullshit which is rampant in honkai), they also are incapable of writing good ships, so they similarly shill them instead kek
Also>ayato in his quest was better
No offence but anyone genuinely liked that filler quest? It was literally the overworked waifu quest of husbandos. Worst male character personal quest by far imo. Especially if you compare it with itto's who was released only a little bit earlier than him.

Thank you for believing in me!
I honestly think it's more cringe to not know what the fuck is going on in a game than playing it and actually paying attention to the shit that's on the screen.
I just can't even imagine playing a game that I don't give a fuck about, it's such a braindead idea, and if anyone has gotten this far on this game and haven't even read the important shit of the lore then that's seriously pathetic.

I just made it to the 3 magi quest and wanted to ask: Will the Kaveh/Alhaitham and other character info become more prevalent from here on out? I have a bad habit of multi-tasking when playing so I don't fully absorb what's going on but I'm working on it. Also, just witnessed some actual Alhaitham snark when he said he was more likable than Shani and I had to pause because what did that poor girl do lol The game can be so much fun if you play like the discourse and competitive moids don't exist.
alhaitham will get his own character quest and kaveh will probably get a hangouts so you can learn more about them later.
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.
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.
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.
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. >>262671
If you're not interested in the story or the combat, what in the world are you playing the game for then? Gacha addiction?
>>262675>Exploration is pretty story heavy since everything you come across rewards you with tidbits of the story
Oh, well that hasn't been my experience.
>why do you collect them if you're not interested in their background and how they interact with the world they live in
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.
Basically I don't care (about the plot and world of Genshin Impact). Ugh I know, I know!!! I'm sorry!!! It's just I don't like it is all. LOL

I don't think it matters what reason we all play the game. It could be for husbando collection, lore/exploration, etc., but all that matters is we all share playing the game in common.
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.>>262689
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.
Oh, that gives more to look forward to then. Thanks! >>262692>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.
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.

Considering the fact that there are literally no other good game featuring 3d bishies that actually look good aside from genshin it’s very understandable that someone would play it to just ti run around with bishies. Remember the 3d touken ranbu game? Yuck
And you are also boosting male banner numbers so that’s a plus for me

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.

Kek holy shit you’re right. The only difference is Dehya has story involvement while Eula was shoehorned in later on.
Homegorl please, just because isn't a Nilou doesn't make her "butch".
Also I don't remember her flirting with any girl? When was that?>>262790

(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. She's too stylish and cool for me to dislike based on coom alone.
File: 1670782935468.png (350.84 KB, 1319x1600, CatraDebutHQ.png)
I just don't see that. to me she's about on the same level as or below kuki who I'd throw in the lowest tier of gsn designs. even putting the coom elements aside that girl is offensively ugly.

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.
When she asks traveller for a smile as payment
it made me so happy.
I fell for her personality too! She's just so dynamic! She's deeply empathetic and patient, and possesses an intelligence that akademiya people are shocked that someone from her roots would have (I fucking hate them so much) and she sees and understands injustices without letting the frustration cloud her better judgement. I almost cried when she was about to let her arm be chopped off.
She's going to be the first lady I pull for and it's such an honor. Also, not at you ofc, but for that other anon: calling a tough non-traditionally feminine woman butch is just so archaic. Women can be tough and more phys resilient without having whatever lgbt term pasted on.
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.
idgaf about shipping, i always ignore it aside from good fanart i might come across.
i personally dislike ayato's design, it looks ugly from the behind, which is the angle you will see the most, plus there is childe as a hydro husbando. if you don't have nari then alhaitham could be your dendro husbando
that happens in literally every single fandom
learn to live and let live and move on
Even when I added this disclaimer, I still got misunderstood.
No way, so far the chillest shippers have been Alhaithem x Kaveh-ers. Do you think I was complaining because I want to fuck a fictional character and got turned off because of people's ship? I take that "people here are mature" part back kek. >>262854
!! That was exactly why I skipped him the first time. Wish I had Tighnari but this makes perfect sense thank you! His icon in character archieve will remain blacked lmao.
Also same, love the fanarts.>>262858
I'm in several fandoms(Ygo, dmc, ff… Etc) but Genshin is the only one where there doesn't seem to be a place for sfw lore/character nerds.
>>262850>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 don't care about what other people ship. When they sperg about canon I usually just ignore them, no ships are canon.>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.
Try them out in the character trial and choose whichever you like playing best. Both will come back around eventually.
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! >>262867
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. >tiktok
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.>>262882
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.>>262924
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. >>262978
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.>>262987
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!
I haven't farmed for the new set yet, but is it better for Cyno than glided dreams?
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.

Wowee so %140 boost in dendro grenades which are op to begin with vs %14 atk increase (if the same element is there) plus 50 e
EM for different elements in party?
I hate the fact that they dropped this domain after finally getting god-like artficats for him. Now to farm forever for ems with crit substats reeeeee.

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.
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?>>263212
Seeing this side by side makes me hope his burst appearance is still in beta because Keqing's looks cooler with her silhouettes.

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.

>>263260>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. >>263266
SO CUTE. 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. (Also omg that xiaoven pic is so cute)

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)
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+
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. >>263436
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 https://keqingmains.com/q/wanderer-quickguide/

I’m glad people are calling her out properly now
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.>>263726
This makes much more sense.>which is why leakers were at first saying that he's not on the roadmap.
Even Baizhu was leaked to be in the road map before Alhaithem and he's in 3.6's update. But the question is why? What changed?
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?

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.
I went with different teams for each chamber and restarted each time for the ultimate peace of mind kek. And I %100 agree the 50 primos aren't worth it, but the 60k mora is then burning the 50 primo for another resin for more mora
Childe international, Mono Geo that deleted 12-3 second half, and Cyno hyperbloom.
The Wolflord mofo finally died quickly with autoaim Scara + Raiden + Nahida + Amber Ningguang for heals and mini wolves.
Compared the previous I finished 12th floor in less than an hour.
What are your teams and stuff btw?

Happy birthday to Layla
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?
File: 1671471914526.png (47.45 KB, 533x629, fuck mihoyo.png)
I swear if this isn't some fake news psyop by leakers seething over a male DPS I'm going to implode. There's no other reason for this kind of nerf than pure spite. 705% EM to 282%? 437% to 175% on his burst? Fucking christ we already have Tighnari to fill the role of a mediocre dendro DPS, what were they thinking?
I really want to say it's Keqingfags but honestly I think it's so that ge becomes reliant on other units like electro for spread since he can't be better than Nahida.>>264756>705% EM to 282%? 437% to 175%
Wtf atleast reduce them by small numbers not hundreds what is wrong with them. And you know there is no need for the nerf it is EM not attack so it's the original value isn't so high wtf. Why did they even add those numbers from the start?

Shizo-chan I missed you so much it has been a while since you posted here.>being so shizo doesn't realize fujotrannies were shipping them before any were playable.
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".>>264792
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?

the sleeves on that one look ai generated. do they only commission the most bland moeshit artists they can find because they'll accept payments in gems instead of money? picrel doesn't fit genshin's theme of course, but it's official commissioned art of an upcoming character from another gacha game showing that there are artists that don't suck that are willing to work on these.
I swear it's a pain being someone who pays attentions and searches for lore. What is the point if they'll change anything at will and akshully me to death.>>264801
My memory is foggy as hell so I'm probably wrong but wasn't his normal attack speed nerfed?>>264803
You're right kek I forgot she was in a dual banner. No wonder she hasn't had a rerun yet>>264805
The answer is yes. They might even do it for free to add it to their CV that worked for Genshoon impact. But I am a huge sucker for art like this, which game is this?
its from onmyoji, the black haired boy and white haired boy form sp ungaikyo
they're voiced by the same dude as venti despite how depressive they are kek
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.
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.
What are you even talking about?
>Moid logic says he should get priority first
…What? Are you confusing video games with real life? Because the only characters moids care about are the female ones. They mald over anything that pleases women (male characters).
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">>264832
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
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?
File: 1671490794633.jpeg (155.97 KB, 1280x854, 1C83535D-0F2F-4B80-9523-007765…)
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.
Yeah nevermind I think I got baited good here. This would actually be hilarious as a parody of an obtuse waifu shill.>>264857
Meanwhile Albedo still has that drag wig hair.
>>264850>Chinese scrotes hated Itto
It's not just Chinese I swear every male player I talked from different region (and discord) all hate Itto and say "despite him being strong, his retarded attitude pisses me off" bitch isn't that majority of Genshin's waifu's traits? 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>>264856
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.
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.>>264861
Seems like you're cherrypicking because normalfags love him. Unless you're exposing youself to anti-Ittosaras headcanoning him as an abuser.
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?
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
Eula is still relevant? Last time we saw her she was still with Amber in the festival in 3.0.>anti-Ittosaras
These people claim Itto abused Sara when nothing in canon stipulates this. It's from my TL.>>264866>>264868
I've either heard feminists or CCP taking action not only against Rosaria's uggo boob shape but also against the outfits the next year so idk.
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.
also i have some male friends (sorry) that really like Itto but they're all gay lol maybe that makes a difference for if males like him or not
File: 1671876583808.jpeg (475.44 KB, 1488x2048, FkkytVCakAA5WGX.jpeg)
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. >>264869
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. >>264873
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.
I missed this place so much.>>264869>>264969
Eula isn't relevant in banners but in coom discussions, fanart abs such she's pretty popular alongside Raiden and Miko.
>still released Shenhe after which has a far more coomed design
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.
What did you gorls think about the new event?
Thought it was cute that we could talk to other characters but the story itself was such a disappointment. Legit had my hopes up for a little scare or sadness.

>What did you gorls think about the new event?
I liked Gorou and Itto, the event was kinda meh but I was glad to see them. Like you said it was cute but pretty much filler.

Happy (very late) birthday to Dori
I feel you honestly, opening genshin has been a drag for a while. But why are you quitting?>>264979
Loved seeing them two! Since they're always in my team but the fact the subject was Ms. Hina, again ugh, kind of pissed me off, even though it was less offensive than I though it would be kek>>264982
Which sucks because she looked like a vengeful spirit or something that would've been cool to fight pissed strong monsters, instead we got somewhat ping pong event.>>264987
Finally, they commissioned someone good with colors
With the hide and seek event i lowkey just go afk on both sides. I just want to get the event rewards.>>264993
Yeah I don't like the Ns. Hina joke either. >ping pong event
The mini games of this event was super boring imo. Not gonna lie, the only events I like are the dungeon ones. Especially the one with Childe and Xinyan was fun, I hope that one returns soon
>>265003>No Albedo/dragonspine event this year
What? Why? Dragonspine is literally the
winter event, what event are they doing this year? I can't play anymore because my graphics card is shit, but I still care about my favorite boys.
I know right? I’m so pissed that they are breaking the tradition this year.
Also nonna have you tried cloud gaming via geforce? You need to wait on queue to get in but you can play for an hour once you’re in. I was able to play thru it while my laptop was repairing.
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.>>264995
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.

I think it’s really cute. This design is clearly for the girls. Guys just want Ayaka in a sailor uniform.
(nta)>clearly for girls>ayaka>boob window
whatever you say, nonnie
…not sailor uniform coomershit =/= not ugly

I’m no Ayaka fan myself but we’ve got 50/50 chance of no boob window because this was released later in the day by team China. >>265076
Would be cool if a 4star male character got a free skin. It should be Benny or Chongyun.
This look like light mode Yunjin kek
I wish Childe would get himself a no jacket skin, that belt thing under his chest is kinda hot not into bdsm I swear
They did it last season with Diluc you tard. I agree with >>265077
that we need at least a 4* Kaeya skin. Praying for next season to happen.
Maybe i just don't like this one because the art style is creepy. >>265077
This one is pretty cute, i hope that hat will look nice in game.>>265036>>265029
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.>>265074
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.
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?>>265085
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.
Those cringe "for the girls" comments honestly remind me of your parents buying you Barbie dolls instead of G.I. Joe action figurines because it's so pink, full of fashion and makeup, so for girls.
It's a stale and autistic conversation, implying every woman comes from the same mold.
Anyway the Ayaka skin is cute and I wouldn't mind spending bucks on it.

It’s Meiji style dress which is just western inspired.
This is literally how hoyo sees it though and releasing it for "girls" (trannies most likely kek) because it doesn't have a boob window. But I digress, it's a cute dress and a cute bow it just doesn't for Ayaka supposed 24/7-too-busy>>265124
Wow I never saw that before, kinda hideous. no offense to Japanese nonnies if any are offended
But I still think it's closer to one of those Lolita dresses to appease than an actual history reference
Bishie benny? What sort of clothing would he wear?
If memory serves Kaeya taught him how to use a sword so maybe something Kaeya-esque? I've been using benben for more than a year and got used to his design. What kind of design is on your mind nona?>>265168

Congrats on getting them! I'm enjoying Scara so much and also got his weapon, I planned to get redhorn but I didnt mind getting his weapon instead. Right now I'm not sure if I should pull for Ayator or save for Alhaitham instead

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.
For big numbers you need to put him with Xiangling, vaporize gives big numbers.

Happy birthday to Tighnari
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.

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. >>265567
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.
I see, thanks nona! I'll ignore Ayato again for Alhaithem since Childe can fill the hydro part and I don't have Tighnari like every functional human being kek
I guess with Welkin + new map exploration + 20 days of his banner filled events and such I think I can get him… I just wish this game would pity my wishing, it has been a year and a half since I played and never got any 5-stars before 70+ pulls, like I want to see a 5-stars at 50 or something, but nah no early 5 stars for me.>>265639

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.
File: 1672452116751.png (88.8 KB, 400x400, PinocchioShrek.png)
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.
And I never cared about Scara and am more interested in what Varka's going to look like.
I just play to self-insert as Lumine the hero and have fun exploring.
The Abyss is just generic evil darkness shit and I doubt they'll have a good explanation on why they're being evil besides the gods are worse or something.

It is a little dull this time around, his birthday quote is just him offering to tell you stories. Anyways, I have been enjoying Genshin this year. The Sumeru quests are much better than Inazuma's and the new regions look nice. Also Alhaitham is hot
Nvm I realized his anatomy is wonky as his arm is huge compared to his head and shoulders, I'm guessing the artist's original intention is to make some sort of foreshortning pose but changed their mind and draw the hand normally? For real look at the arm and you'll see how wrong it looks
I don't know what is it about this games' birthday art that triggers

Lisa student sumeru skin, it's fine imo. i like the hair, the silhouette is pretty much the same
I like this more than her actual outfit>>265883
I still don't like lisa
I feel like the site going down was a good thing in some regards. Prior to it, this thread was so ugly with anons bitching at each other over the smallest things you mentioned. You were really damned either way no matter what your opinion was because how dare you have an opinion on anything regarding this game. I think some anons forget that someone having a different opinion to them isn't a personal attack on them and doesn't need to be
addressed every time they see one.
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.>>265785
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. And do you think the writers forgot about those plot points you brought up? I feel like they don't keep up with these precious crumbs they drop because the story and interactions could be way more worthwhile if they did.
Lisa her outfit will be available free in an event just like the other 4 star outfits. Ayaka will have to be paid for ik an event but just like Diluc her skin will be part in a story event.>>265899>Is anyone really gonna buy that Ayaka skin for close to 30 bucks?
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.>>265912

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.

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

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.

She goes by Yaoihyper/ruisen on Reddit/Twitter. Love to see fully committed husbando fans.
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.
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.
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.>>266156
Same with Cyno, Which sucks because I really like his design.

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.

The bayo woman is Cloud Retainer according to the leaker. However Team China (leakers who leaked all the 3.3-3.4 gameplay) claims that these sketches are fake leaks.

Do you girls remember the moonchase event? There was this character in the last cutscene that no one knew who she was but all thought it was either young Madame Ping or human Cloud Retainer, any news on her since then?
The bayo lafy leaks reminded of this mystery from like a year ago kek

kek sorry i thought this was already posted
I hope the leak is fake for the bayo cloud retainer. Such a boring design literally Shenhe but with glasses and black hair. Klee does look cute tho. >>266753
Happy birthday Scara! Very pretty art and thank you to the nonnie
who shared some cute fan art.>>266762
I want those Kaeya and Zhongli skin rumors to be real so bad. If it would be Archon and Khaenri'ah related.>>266731
I do remember, I was convinced back then she would be playable since she wears no pants and has no weird features like different body type.

That's the weird part. His data says cryo polearm. Looks like the book might be a burst thing only. The book seems to be the bag on his back.
He is super cute>>266779
Mid as hell. Yae pose xinyan bg. Seems like Scara Heizou pose wasn't a singular occurance >>266784
Looks like another Raiden situation
He looks so baby and cute! Too bad I won't get him since he's on Dehya banner, and you know what they say about wishing for 4 stars on a banner. Damn it Mika why aren't you on Baizhu's. >>266781
I don't want to seem ungrateful for the Kaeya skin, but boob window >>>
Scara's Shoulder peek>>266779
I honestly love Xinyan and her design and thought I'd get Dehya because she's close to it but ehhh, is this pose part of her burst? Like Alhaithem? If she dances/fanservices in her burst I'll ignore her banners for life. Some leaks are not trusted but those say she's a 5star Xiangling which would've been nice to have.>>266765
You missed the start of the thread where some Nona started her fics about it here.>I repeat, why the hell does Ei get to get away with it all?
You know why kek.
I think this is why they didn't go super serious with quest and blamed it all on Dottore, their main waifu would get insulted and that's a fat no no.

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.
sage for retarded blogpost.
The 3.x leakers who posted the correct until now roadmap said he will debut with her and Kaveh in 3.6 so could be wrong but I think both of their leaks coming together means it's most likely true.>>266807
Holy shit what a dumbass, why was he so excited to leak this artwork when it's not even her final look, does he think we haven't seen her already?>>266812
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.>>266818
Congrats nona!!! You're %100 correct on the obsession thing. Thankfully never fell into that blackhole because I play other games which yeah definitely frees you from Hoyo's pp sucking and pointless anxiety. (the only worthy thing to stay for is the hawt boys fanart if you're into that kek)

!! 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.

Why would they do this to him
Do skin designers even know who they're designing for? Diluc, Jean, Ningguand, Lisa and Keqing have different skins but they still look like something that character would wear, but this? Question mark quest mark lol
This looks like all the Kaeya fanart when they draw him as a bely dancer in their Kaeluc AU smut. I know things look better in 3D since it's moving and all that but this is just hideous.>blacknails
They don't even fit him help can they put a female skin designer?>>266836>Inb4 suck it up buttercup aren't you happy they're giving u something!!
I gave up on them not being sexist kek, I'll sit with my limited reverse Harem and hope Zhongli's skin atleast fit him.
You solved it nona. He SHOULD show some belly. Isn't he from the same place Aether from? Aether shows his belly, why can't he?
Even from a design stand point showing skin in the upper mid area will relieve the details tension and then his xxxl pants will go well.
But no they'd rather die than give us something good.
File: 1672779418814.jpg (246.56 KB, 720x1280, kekimsorry.jpg)
You know what I think I made him shittier, but hey belly, shoulders and tight pants as Genshin-y as possible lmao
I really do not like those pants and I miss the boobwindow. Maybe it will look better on 3d?>>266837
You are so right idk why they made a sumeru skin for him when it has nothing to do with his lore.>>266856
I like your edit!
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. Its like theyre finally acknowledging his indian roots (name plus skin) which considering the fucking trash bin the sumeru region was is a relief. Literally the only skin that looks remotely SWANA beside Cyno
The edit the anon posted was p bad ngl kek
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.
Than again I might be nitpicking since they do take one proper cultural elements and then Genshin it up. So good on you if you love it nonnie
!! atleast genshin it properly you mofos and give him his boob window back
Now I'm afraid for Zhongo's skin.
Thanks nonas!! >>266861
I'd post a shoeless edit but I can't draw feet yet kek.
But you know what? Him showing skin in his leg area would look good and made think that they haven't released ONE TALL MALE CHARACTER with his legs showing. Either loose pants or tight pants. What are they afraid of exactly?

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

Nonas with 10k+ fanarts saved, do you have more like Picrel? I have a huge crush on 3rd phase tarta with broken mask or something like the Pic but I have no idea what to search, I either get normal Childe or 3rd phase fully masked.
It's a really niche part of Tarta fanart but it really looks good with his hair like that and a serious expression.

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 refuse to believe that the designers that gave us Zhongli is behind this shit. Oh my god. I’m so pissed

it’s cute but feels like a fatui fan design. If they leaned into a more lady Oscar outfit meets steampunk I’d be over the moon. Her character might be sus like Kaeya because her eye is covered.
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.>pic
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.>>267045
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.
Sorry this kind turned into a rant/vent about Cyno kek

nta but how about this guy then
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. There is no old anime vibe to speak of here, these characters have very modern and generic looks, very Honkai Impact. They share so many elements they could all be skins for the same character.>>267074
well this is otto so canon>>267092
post good designs then. seriously what the fuck someone like you even considers "good"? already sensing some super mid garbage btw
Now, I need you to take Yana's name out of your filthy dirty mouth immediately… All your comparisons to things that actually look good due to being created by women
aren't convincing me, it sounds like cope. The closest comparison I can give besides the obvious v-tuber dig is a Snow Miku contest entry from 2017-18, it's gaudy like one of those.
File: 1672917767750.jpg (2.7 MB, 4096x3276, 0230102047930.jpg)
the fuck are you on, it's literally the same outfit and genshin has a ton of female artists too
quick, what's coomerish or "moid-like" about focalors? how is she more coomerish than let's say the protagonist of code realize lmao mind you that's a female oriented franchise
File: 1672918498876.jpg (2.34 MB, 4096x3276, 02301033429969.jpg)
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. >>267087>>267047
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".
>>267098>it's literally the same outfit
So I was dead on with the cope part kekkk you really don't have to bend over backwards to shill whatever tacky bullshit you like as some sort of uwu femgaze girlcoded princely sapphic situation type deal. It's a bit cringe.>>267100>we have gotten that complaint for literally every archon so far
And it's been true every damn time too. Venti and Zhongli at least have ~lore~ excuses for their lowkey designs, and for some reason still look more like what you'd expect from an archon than the others despite them.
File: 1672920022877.png (1012.08 KB, 640x789, hnujuyhi3l671.png)
Nahida also has a lore excuse (she's basically wearing her PJ's since she isn't allowed to leave her prison) and Ei honestly looks very beautiful and godly from the back. She just looks like a retard who forgot to put on her pants from the front.
I actually like her design.>>267036
Agreed, it seems like it's illegal in Teyvat for girls to wear pants kek.>>267047>Likes Ei>this bitch was supposed to be divinity?
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. >>267076
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. >>267087
Looks like male Jean>>267099
I understand what you mean nonnie
, the big difference is just that she wear shorts. i don't think that Mihoyo will ever let a girl character wear shorts that go below the thighs or pants that are baggy.
File: 1672922806469.png (82.56 KB, 580x580, 347skin1.png)
>>267107>what's coomerish and moid like about her?
The booty shorts + thigh straps that have no purpose other than to appeal to guys who have that fat spilling fetish, something like 20 other anons have pointed out, nonnie
. Get with the program.
>please give me an example of a female anime design you like
Idk there are a lot that I like. The ones off the top of my head aren't going to be great examples… Dark bobo for the memes? This frumpy scammer fujo? Kikyo?
She's a grown fujo comic relief character inspired by shojo protagonists like Sailor Moon, even has a hot love interest that she groomed (based)
. Doesn't look any younger than folklores, don't project your own reaches on to me, nonnie
. And I think it's less me having a vendetta, more you having a boner for her because she's like the first female character they've released since Hu Tao that didn't have her tits out kek.

So, so close to a good design. She just needs pants or at least leggings like Jean then she'd be great, no armpits or tits out.
Whoever's been leaking everything all of a sudden is a madman.
File: 1672933328349.jpg (39.73 KB, 579x463, nclle8zbs9aa1.jpg)
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. >>267110
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. >>267121>>267128>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.>>267134>Whoever's been leaking everything all of a sudden is a madman.
It's insane, I wonder if it's like an fired employee who just decided to go rogue?
>>267139>Genshin has a huge amount of blue character Im starting to miss other colors.
You are right about that, we have lots of blue characters and a lot of the skins are also blue>>267131
idk what this is supposed to say, why is it so badly edited i can see the other text behind it kek
This also to me seems overdesigned but for some reason ending up looking generic. Same with the new Kayea clothes before the 'reee you only hate on female charas' anon gets triggered
I think Genshin really has a problem of the characters having way too many not cohesive details, it looks like player-customised characters instead of properly designed ones.

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.
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. Though I'll have a bit of optimism probably it would be fixed with a good story or something.

Pic related is a translation of a leak that was posted before the leak flood. Turns out everything they said came true, so as for now we might have good reason to believe the character gender inequalities with a measly 3 male characters out of 11. Time to doompost kek.
On a funnier note, the leak floods happened because of retarded team China, the ones who leaked the Wanderer gameplay. They wanted to create a huge leak as the famous one with all the characters in 1.5 but wanted to drip feed us with it. Someone in Team China went fuck it and leaked it all as a dump anyways kek. I’ve never seen such clout hungry leakers in any other game

Any more lore on their conflict that got one to leak all?

I didn't mind Noelle before the hangout event but the hangouts made me so frustrated with her. Dori's only so high because she'd be a perfectly good character if she had the teen/short woman model rather than the loli one.

Kek all I know is that the leak flood was initiated like pic related describes.
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.
>>267100>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?

Banners next patch will be:
-Alhaitham and Xiao (Yao Yao as new 4 star)
-Hu tao and Yelan
Remember to redeem them today since tomorrow they will not be redeemable anymore!>>267255
I want him to be offield and be good in applying dendro. I hope his ult or skill has something to do with his snake. If his kit would include healing that would also be pretty neat. When will we get him, dendro is finally here yet i have heard no leaks for when he will be playable

sorry to samefag as much but i also want to note that Ayaka skin is 4 star since she does not have any different idles or animations. I like the way how the back of her outfit looks
she really does look like an npc with a wicked cameltoe… -3/10>>267247>2 tall males
its just the obligatory regional fujobait you dorks will eat up even if they're both ugly and boring
A 5 Bennet of any element would be a dream come true but after the first batch of 4
released we never got any 4 and barely 5
that could fill their roles. Let alone males.
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. >>267204
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. >>267278>>267282>Doesn't like Kavetham
How does it feel like having no taste nonnies? Oh yes, I don't care if it's shitty fujobait and people seething call Alhaitham ugly because he's gay, I love them, eat it up and ask for seconds.

Seeing this I wonder what's the bl trope they'll give to fountine guys, predictions? >Mond had sworn brothers>Liyue had friend and foe/spy>Inazuma had rich guy and servant>Sumeru had tsundere with kind bullyapologies for retarded names idk what these tropes are actually called
What if, the next one is something forced? Like one in each faction but one is caught by the other? I swear if they actually go for that trope I'll C2 both of them lmao

This my tier based on design only. If it was also about personality/character I would probably change some positions. For example I like Shenhe her story so I would place her higher and probably would drop Kokomi some tiers.>>267315
Yeah you can only use him with Itto

Yeah it’s a hate crime they never had kokomi come with us to enkanomiya. Her lore is so intertwined with the Vishaps and of course the country itself.

Klee's a child who actually acts like a child without being irritating about it. I wish they'd give her a kit overhaul so she was less clunky to play.
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. >>267324
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.

no redesign yet unfortunately. funny how the fontaine waifus already leaked and yet still no baizhu. its really easy to tell that leakers are predominately male at this point
File: 1673040761700.webm (2.95 MB, 640x360, Lisa_Walk.webm)
It looks a lot better in motion, but I agree that the panties look weird.
I'm not hating this skin though, it fits lore wise and I like the sumeru aesthetic.
Me x100 I love him so much and his care for Qiqi made love him even more. I'm really curious about his story, I can't believe we're getting him finally. >>267358
You mean there is a possibility he'll be in lantern rite cutscenes redesigned? Or will it be like Scaramouche, story first then redesign? >>267346
I identify as get the fuck out of here with your trannys shit, respect my pronouns plz.

>>267365>his care for Qiqi
Qiqi doesn't like him because she feels like he's insincere though?
Admittedly I'm not that deep in the lore yet about him, it's just every time those cutscenes in limited events, and last year's moonchase he was answering Qiqi's question like a big brother would and I'm a huge sucker for type of relationships (like Albedo and Klee).
Thank you for that btw, didn't know he was "insincere". Does that mean he's related to/is Pantalone?>>267370
I don't know if you noticed, but no tall male shows his leg either. For the longest time Baizhu always annoyed (male) fans because he looked feminine and potentially liking feminine guy = "am I gay?!?!??"
Don’t spread shit that’s not confirmed at all by leakers.
Baizhu’s data had "costume wic" added to it. Wic was used to Mona and Rosaria when they got a censored outfit. However, we should not assume Baizhu got censored. Wic could literally just be something mihoyo says for redesigned outfits.
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. >>267373
There were literally screenshots of their private chats saying that they were doing it on purpose. Go contribute to the statistics, Y-kun.
Statistically it makes sense. There's an unfair female-to-male characters ratio so it makes sense they release more girls than boys. >>267378>There were literally screenshots of their private chats saying that they were doing it on purpose
I'd like to see the source on that. Just because some nonnas aren't into cockmacing doesn't mean they're moids btw.
41% asap, Blaine
report and ignore, anons. this is the schizo troon who normally shits up /meta/ all day.
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?>>267396
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. He'd just be another gross, psychotic scrote to add to the pile.

The 2 tall men turned into 1. So Lyney and one more dude. That’s all we’re getting. Pull for all the husbandos before 4.0 nonnies, cause it’s gonna be a husbando drought.

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
>>267401>Will male players get insecure if the female characters are a little bit more capable or have a cool backstory
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.>>267415
What's with HYV and December? Every year it's the same thing: we had a couple of full patches with interesting events to look forward and every x.3 version is a total black hole that is just asking to be skipped for the Lantern Rite.
8 female characters and you know they're all going to be like >>267138
, which is pretty sad honestly because she looks so ridiculous. If the leaks are true she's supposed to be the chief of a faction in Fontaine and I just can't take that seriously if she's dressed like a prostitute. Actually giving her a long-ish full skirt would have looked great opposed to >>267035
I'm kinda curious about the bottom right character here >>267076
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. >>267449>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.

Im not interested in Dehya or any rerun girl that I haven't gotten already and waiting until 4.0+ is painful.
It wouldn't be so painful if these mofos can write female characters properly other than diet yuri and same three personalities over and over but alas, I was attracted to this game through fanart and if I quit it I'll still stay for the fanart kek>>267457
Webtoon/manhuas ruined a generation of female artists, look at those Korean yaoi tits and how wrong pelvic area is smh. Poor aether getting the worst of it, look those hips dayum
>>267454>Yet sumeru feels so much more focused on female players starting off with a male character focused story and male banners.
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.>>267455
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. >>267469>But anon how else will I let mihoyo know that we want more male characters unless i waste money on every male character that appears
This is why I time all my purchases during male banners regardless of if I'm going to roll them or not kek.

>>267489>Only Dottore is asshole enough to hate lore wise but who else?
Ei. I'm never gonna let this go, never gonna forget the pass, never gonna not want this bitch in the ground.
Why party city steampunk in a French inspired nation? They really couldn't have done a google search? A quick search showed me Louis XVI fashion and they could've gone with that + reasonably sexy and not dime store Moulin Rouge they're trying to give us. Add well-placed decadence, take some rococo inspiration—This could be the region you have the most fun with fashion, but no! >>267506
They ruined my fave color.
>>267511>I'm never gonna let this go, never gonna forget the pass, never gonna not want this bitch in the ground.
Based. If you really think about it, Ei is actually the most villainous and evil character in the entire game. >Egoistical, gloats about her body being "the noblest and most eminent of all in this world">Doesn't give a shit about her region, lets Makoto take care of everything including the cataclysm which led to her death>Killed Orobashi for trying to protect his people from Celestia>After Makoto's death, panics over having to actually take responsibility and act her part as the Archon>Creates tons of sentient puppets killing them off until she creates the one she leaves in charge while she escapes to her safe space to "meditate" for all eternity>Throws the prototype of the puppet into the wilderness to die there without a purpose because "he was too kind" like a psycho>The puppet is confirmed to act exactly as she would so it's actually Ei committing genocide across Inazuma by taking away visions (confirmed to be connected to a person's whole being) and letting people be exploited by the Fatui handing out Delusions to manipulate the ongoing civil war>It's confirmed that she was aware of this happening but just didn't think it was that big of a deal >Once called out for her shit still doesn't learn her lesson about eternity never being possible but instead starts thinking of other ways to preserve it>But it's okay she shut down the hitler puppet we're friends now!!
Like fuck people thinking Dottore is the worst, at least the story acknowledges him doing awful stuff but Ei we're just supposed to forgive and like with no repercussions coming her way.
Yup you're right, it's treated like a joke "Hutao chasing Qiqi with a shovel" bit kinda sad lol.>>267492
I don't even like her as a Qiqi but just find her tragic; dead kid who obeys orders and forgets everything? Poor kid. >>267511
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.

>>267529>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.
File: 1673140145531.jpg (273.76 KB, 1043x660, IMG_20211017_032057.jpg)
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 Eivery beautiful Pic nona, tyvm
Oh yeah! Remember when we thought Dehya's splash art pose was a sketch? Turns out it's the real deal, saw it in a leaked channel but quickly deleted a bit after. It looks cleaner with some ribbons moved but same fanservice-y pose.

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.>>267511
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. I swear you can milk so much content out of them.

So are we just supposed to assume that literally every design coming out will be a, as one anon eloquently described, a party city steampunk outfit? This looks so fucking uninspired I would fully believe it to be a fanmade fake leak. >>267635
Yes, it's Lyney. Like Cyno he was revealed during launch when they made the chapter preview video.
Where did you find this leak?>>267636
She was already posted >>267138>>267600
Facebook, daily life of Genshin player page. It usually has quite reliable leaks but take it with a grain of salt.
Oh yeah, she was posted, that blue tint in the photo threw me off so I didn’t realise it was the yellow girl.
They're not gonna censor Baizhu, his model will just get an update since it's so old. >>267643
I haven't seen that leak anywhere else so thats why I'm not sure if its real
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. >>267645
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.

He do be dressed like a nun>>267595
Ideal cultures for all genshin regions
Monstadt - Europe (misc)
Liyue - China
Inazuma - Japan
Sumeru - SWANA (misc)
Fontaine - South East Asia (misc)
Natlan - LATAM (misc)
Snezhnaya - Central Asia + Russia
Khaenri'ah- West Africa (misc)
Or if they were to the stick to Central, East and SE Asia:
Monstadt - Tibet
Liyue - China
Inazuma - Japan
Sumeru - central Asia
Fontaine - Polynesia
Natlan - SEA (volcanic regions)
Snezhnaya - Siberia + Mongolia
Post yours anons
Liyue is a borefest and so are the overworked waifus of Liyue.>>267675
Monstadt - Germany
Liyue - China
Inazuma - Japan
Sumeru - persian empire, didn’t feel like the Egypt desert part was necessary
Fontaine - Industrial revolution England
Natlan - Inca period
Snezhnaya - Russia, tsar era
Khaenri'ah- more emphasis on the already existing Norse vibes. Scandinavian Viking era
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.>>267662
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. >>267675
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.

Ngl I'd be okay with most of these steampunk designs if they were allowed to have long skirts or pants. Even a skirt with a slit like Ningguang has.>>267617
I don't understand women who hate Ningguang or Beidou. I assume they're nlogs ngl.

To make it worse it’s the same exact pose as yae too
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.
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.
I don't disagree but the yuri ones are worse since moidhoyo can't write female characters to save their lives>>267728>The people I see
well yeah like I said fandom climate. if you don't at least pretend to like the boring animu wuhluhwuhs, nlogs will call you a womanhater. the only ones brave enough to do it anyways are a few edgy ftm troons who tbf do hate them just because they're female kek. hating male characters/couples as well as the women who like them for any reason however is halal in nlogland.

I feel sorry for girls who can't ship their fave characters and have to hide it behind 5 flags and 6 lines of they/them PTSD type of bio otherwise they'll be terrorized by trannies, so sometimes I give them some slack. Then I regret it 10 mins after kek>>267758>Mfw love Nikki isn't available in the middle eastern region

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
