I'm gonna come clean, I have a crush on jingyuan. I hope besides the female mc, he won't be shipped with any other girls but that's too much to wish for… I also like yanqing, i hope they have a cute relationship
Girls who played it-is it better than Genshin? My problem with Genshin is sunk cost fallacy. I spent so much time on it and feel obligated to keep playing it because I already spent that time.>>274850
Honhon now that's a fine looking fellow. My laptop better be able to run it
i wanna go in relatively blind so i didnt watch it fully but here's a vid with the gameplay in it. im not a fan of turn based games but maybe ill learn to enjoy it kek
>sunk cost fallacy
i feel this. i wont stop playing genshin and im planning on mostly logging into star rail during story updates instead of farming daily. iirc the artifacts have a 5-set bonus so not farming will cost me but kek i cant care too much

first hate comment!
I will probably try it out, I likest most male designs. There are only a few females one that I like, some of them have a specific design element that female genshin characters also have (armpits out, thigh strap, knee high socks) that makes a bit irritated. Hopefully there will be more girls that I actually like. With Genshin I chose Lumine to play but for Star Rail I will probably choose the guy. I really don't like the skirt and thigh strap the fmc is wearing and I like to self-insert with female characters but I would never wear something like that. >>274895
She's one of the female character were I think the design is pretty compared to the others

news 2) the discord extra slots event winners are announced on the discord "announcements" channel. here's the link since i forgot to add it to the op kek https://discord.gg/honkaistarrail>>275844

made in china fire emblem with less attractive dudes. AND it's tied to honkai impact, ebin. hope this attempt to cash in on the hoyofags genshit brought in fails miserably. op is a samefagging shill, plz ban again.

I haven't actually counted recently but the last time I did it looked like Starrail does its character m:f ratio basically the same as Genshin, meaning the five star banners are approximately even but four stars are heavily skewed female
Anyway, I can see how anyone who's a lover of the genshin manlets wouldn't be looking at this game with much anticipation, but as someone who wishes genshin wasn't so full of very young looking guys, this game looks great for husbando collecting to me. I'm only really worried that the gameplay grind of it may be too much of a chore long term. I don't mind genshin dailies because I find genshin combat actually fun, but something turn based? We'll see ig

Suggest a better free to play mobile game then. I’m no Hoyo bootlicker but what gacha game isn’t trying to make a quick buck off people>>274850
Same for me but with Danheng. Unfortunately looks like he might get shipped with that Blade guy so I’m preparing to have all the tags blocked on release kek
mobile gaming is a massive market with thousands of entries, anon. I dunno your taste. we have an entire mobage thread on this very board you can browse, go skim through it or make a post there about what you're looking for to get some recommendations catered to you.
>no hoyo bootlicker
my ass. genshit is one thing but an unremarkable turnbased rpg gacha is not a groundbreaking, top of the line experience no other f2p mobage has done (better) before. the autistic urge to resist change is limiting your scope to the company that made your special interest game. I'll let you in on a little secret: most mobile gacha games are f2p turnbased rpgs! some have characters that don't look ai generated, some have a surplus of female writers resulting in a story that isn't dogshit, and some even pander to women exclusively, not to men with the occasional stiff anime nigel to tide over the cucked female playerbase once or twice a year. a novel concept, I know.

Checked leaks and they keep adding hideous waifu coomer bait designs like pic as well as retarded lolis. Not to mention looks like they’re going to fujobait instead of self insert with the male characters which will make their fans all insufferable uwu “transboys” like prosekai. Maybe I won’t play after all kek
File: 1677054479327.jpg (326.59 KB, 2048x1152, wU832ox.jpg)
design complaints are valid
but every gacha game has them. likewise, every fandom has those hetheys acting like theyre the headmasters of ships "because thyere literally mlms"
the fujobait is a plus though
You're referring to a small, bitter group of people mass reporting things that make them seethe to the Chinese government, who has in the past gone as far as to arrest women for producing said content. Do you also believe Keffals is oppressive and powerful? Or the trannies who allegedly reported RedKatherine to the RUS Government? That behavior is coming from a place of not only jealousy over a fictional scrote but genuine homophobia and misogyny, no matter how strong your vendetta against fujos is it's disgusting to support or even simply feel vindicated by it.
And if you're going to throw the word incel around, I sure hope you weren't the anon who was shaming women for having boyfriends IRL in the husbando thread. Don't project your own femcel mental illness onto others.

Thanks for the link! I thought it wasn't going to be that fun when I heard it's not open world but tbh it feels just like open world, just using teleport more instead of walking long distance. The combat in the livestream seemed complicated too but playing it, it's pretty to get a hold of all the character skills. One thing I dislike it how quickly enemy shields are regenerated but I feel like it's not gonna be a big issue once we start building characters. I like it so far and will probably keep playing it. The female characters walking around in their underwear is tolerable if we'll get good stories kek

So far from what I've seen, it seems to have better writing than genshin. Also it has some actually funny tidbits, like MC being obsessed with trash cans. In genshin the humour is very paimon-centric and we know paimon is insufferable, but here it has some really hilarious stuff, like the references to the metaverse kek. I expected march to be annoying, like paimon but she's pretty decent so far. Both her and danheng are very cliche and trope-y , but I can tolerate them and I enjoy the found family aspect. Kafka reminds me too much of makima tbh, but her design is cool. The problem is that most female characters don't look very memorable, I've seen some of the new leaked girls and they all look so boring and have cluttered designs just like honkai (bonus giant boobs). March, kafka and FEMC are probably the best designed right now. As for husbandos, i really like jingyuan, blade and yanqing but I'm not very interested in the rest (or any of the other leaked guys). I wanted to reroll for yanqing at first but since I can already get him at 300 rolls I decided to go with the first account I made where I got bailu. She's a strong healer so she's gonna be useful. The battle system is a bit tiring though and I don't have a lot of patience for it, not a huge fan of turn-based RPGs

Aaaaah my first 5 star is Gepard I'm so happy he is just so cute! i love his idle animation so much, pic related.>>292362>They finally stopped with the jelly boob physics, thank God
Kek I noticed that too, they really toned down the animation. Some of the female characters designs I don't like, Bronya and Pela both look like they dont have any pants. However there are also some very cute female character designs. I really like Herta and Asta. The dialogue def is a lot better, it helps that we don't have a character like Paimon who just repeats everything and the female characters indeed have more personality then in genshin.>>292479>>292480
No problem and yeah I agree with the fact that enemy shields regenerate pretty quick. The dog is indeed so cute! and yes it feels like it's still openworld for me since the closed off worlds are just so bigg!>>292486>like MC being obsessed with trash cans
Kek I really like how the MC has so much personality. I can understand that if you don't like turn based that it might be tiring to play this.
not sure if this is what you mean but I think it's great that the short women model look like grown women actually. They're taller than GI model for short women/teenager. Only Herta's model stands out to me (and others who share her model if there's more, I dont have them yet) but I just take her robot thing as a child model anyway. I even like npc models way more compared to GI, they all have different clothes and all even though they share the same model. Even children look less uncanny valley kek and the playable children (Bailu) are the same size as npc children, they dont have the huge head syndrome GI has either. I think SR's models are a real upgrade to GI, can't compare it to Honkai Impact though.
Unrelated but I love how truly alive cities feel in SR. Npcs are just randoms minding their business as opposed to GI where if you can talk to an npc, they're just there to lead you to a game mechanic or say one specific thing about the city/world. I love the attention to detail, I was mesmerized when I saw/heard the guitar playing girl.

What level are you? I feel like leveling one team is easy enough to meet the enemy expectations for now but I'm at level 22 now. I've been farming exp from the flower things and did mostly that other than skill and light cone materials. I think the game is not going to be that grindy especially with how fast the auto battle is on x2 speed. I'm satisfied with how easy it is kek but maybe it will become too challenging for auto battle later on
File: 1682756808951.jpg (229.09 KB, 1692x1080, 6282919112526.jpg)
as a tall semi-gnc girl stelle makes me incredibly happy, i've never seen a female protagonist like her in a gacha/any game that let's you pick between girl or boy
I just wish they had gaven her some kind of shorts under her skirt like what they did with Lumine. Don't click the reddit link if you don't want to see moids degeneracy but they are already taking panty shots of the female mc already. https://www.reddit.com/r/HonkaiStarRail/comments/132j8gl/funfact_characters_dont_become_transparent_while/
I really hate how just like the genshin sub reddit this one is filled with moids sexualising the female characters. I feel like the only place where it doesn't happen is here, so i hope this thread won't die. Do you guys know any other place for star rail that isn't filled with moids?>>292876
Once you are a higher level you can grind very easy for character materials. Unlike genshin where you have to wait certain days till a domain is open to enter it, you don't have that here. Also you can use the speed up and auto button so that in a few minutes you have used your "resin". This makes it a lot less grindy then genshin imo. My advice would be to focus on leveling a few characters that you like and raising there traces (talents). The relics you get in the beginning are very bad so its not worth to level them. With the light cones i would advice to level the lvl 4 ones and above. >>292922
These two are very cute together in the story! I'm still so surprised how well written the characters are.
I really like Female MC's design except for one tiny detail which triggers
me immensely, which is the retarded blue stripe on her tight (rant incoming).
I already dislike how mihoyo constantly forces most of its female characters at least in genshin
to have an element of "zettai ryoiki" with stupid looking thigh bracelet things, but why the fuck would they make it bright blue in a character whose palette is completely made of black, grey and gold? I like female mc's design other than that and I really love the colour cohesion, so it peeves me so much why would they fuck up the colour pallete like that with such and obviously bad choice. It also fucks up the focal point, it's like you're being forced
to focus on her thigh (gross)
I haven't had much issue with character design in star rail and tbh "busy design" is just how mihoyo designs every character so eh
but this one particular detail has me livid
yeah I would like to avoid the twitter community, I only go there to look at some art.>>293118
Eh I don't understand how you can only like fmc outfit when its legit the same as the male one. Only difference is that she's wearing a mini skirt with a belt wrapped across her thigh. I like most character designs except for the ones where it looks like the girls aren't wearing any pants (Bronya ect).>>293135
I have the same issue, also the thigh bracelete thing also has like no use? Like maybe if it was actually used for like holding a weapon or maybe attaching a pocket to it i would understand. But I hate it so much when they give a female character that useless thingie. Like you said its just there so that people are forced to look at her thighs.>>293169
If you mean the official discord, its mostly just 12 year old boys. The fan-creation has some hilarious bad art. Truely worthy to being posted in the bad art thread. But like I mentioned they are all kids so it's understandable it looks so bad.

Been rerolling, got an account with Gepard- but he's the only 5* on that account, from the guaranteed pull. I don't know if I should reroll, he's super cute and looping his shield saved me in some hard battles.
! And yeah, I like a lot of girl characters in games but Bronya here just annoyed me with her permanent constipated look, lmao
if you don't mind knowing leaks a certain leaked male 5* has a boob window and open back in his outfit so that's one thing to look forward to.
hopefully they don't stop with just him tho

the in-game description of the "passerby of wandering clouds" relic set, from blade's POV. on a scale of 1-10 how fruity were they?
I don't know if I should believe they're really implying they were together
or not. Normally I would say "oh they'll never properly imply a homosexual relationship" but I'm starting to think people calling ships in HI3 canon were not lying or exaggerating lol

Dailies in this game are so nice, we only get one and they actually have stories and are short but still interesting to read.
Hope they have good content in the future. I feel like all three Blade ships have good potential despite not having too much content on him kek he's the loverboy >>294709>>294710

If you can't handle seeing someone post a stupid ship that's not whatever kind you like without devolving into a sperg rant you need to stay in a containment thread for whatever specific fujo/yume/het shit you like

in the full descripton of the item it says "A slender yet strong hand once wore the other bracer. That owner, whose sharp spear glinted with a cold light and flourished like shooting stars, once sparred with the unnamed" den heng has a spear so thats why people assumed it was him, idk if this leak is accurate but according to it jingliu has a sword. maybe chinese fans have a different reason to think it's her tho idk.
File: 1683525068968.jpg (60.1 KB, 649x581, Kv5LTN3.jpg)
I thought the bracer was referring to this but Danheng's still wearing it, he might have forgotten its powers and it's how they found him/express maybe? Regardless of who it is I'm so ready for Bladie story though. Hopefully we get a personal story or something in the update

>>294846>he might have forgotten its powers and it's how they found him/express maybe
that's an interesting idea, I assumed it's rather that he can't pinpoint his location with it anyway so den heng decided to keep the bracer as a suvnoiur or something lol.
and same, I hope they don't half ass his story to make it more palpable to players.
Bump dont scroll down>>294848
I think so too, wasn't there a troon shitting up the genshin thread with discussions similar to this? Maybe it's the same troll

I also want to know Blade/Dan Heng the most because I like Dan Heng too but the other connections have potential to be written well to create his personality and motives. Why is he following Kafka around and obeys her? What's with his friendship with Jingyuan? Also I think the stellaron hunters' dealings in Xianzhou are interesting, and JY/Blade understanding each other's motives could be an interesting reason why JY let him go
. I agree with the Belobog vs Xianzhou part. We'll likely get similar stories to "slices of life before the furnace" series which I adored. After the main story in XZ finishes though, which I don't know when it will happen
File: 1683534483280.png (42.98 KB, 1090x533, lore.png)
>>294874>Why is he following Kafka around and obeys her?
all of the passerby of wandering cloud item descriptions have some part of blades story although vauge. it's pretty obvious 'the woman in sunglasses' is kafka, the quastion remains what she offered him
maybe i just like the dynamic? i ship m/m too in other fandoms but none have interested me much in honkai except maybe male mc x gepard or male mc x welt and blade x dan. I like march/female/dan too. It's more about me liking how characters interact than anything.
i don't understand all the moralfagging related to ships? do you do the same with shipping tropes too like trying to say friends to lovers is more sophisticated than enemies to lovers kek. sounds very exhuasting. either way it's women writing all the fanfics and making the fanart.

saw this while browsing reddit (i know) and thought it was interesting. thoughts, nonnas?
i think the darker parts could have lended themselves to the ending of the Belobog arch a little better–considering Bronya's ultimate decision in regards to the Cocolia situation–but then i can see how rock cancer and hundreds of years of isolation, due to what i assume was the product of some flavor of religious zeal, could have been a little much for a game like this.
File: 1683887941447.jpg (126.05 KB, 1200x800, lWV9Ejh.jpg)
I like the more relaxed story to be honest. I think 10 years of the two parts of the city being sealed is a better choice because it would be too heavy to be solved so quickly if it was centuries. People actually remember each other the way it is now, otherwise it would be too complicated. The rock cancer reminds me of Arknights that has much heavier writing and actually has serious long standing conflicts in its story and yeah, it would be way too heavy for Star Rail imo. Add in the hatred being brewed for centuries between the citizens and it's just not a story fit to be told as your entrance to this magic world. We wouldn't be having the happy reunion cutscenes at the end because there would still be too many in-city conflicts and problems to be solved, which I think ended Belobog's story in a great note. Also I prefer Hook to be happy with her father. I think Mondstadt in Genshin was also more chill than other places, an easier introduction to the game seems to be working well to hook the player in without throwing you realistic political issues. The city would feel more hostile too and from my Genshin experience I still hate Inazuma because it feels so oppressive even after we fixed it. Also, again in the topic of Hook, she felt like a breath of fresh air and showed the life of the city. Children being children could be told as fun side stories because they weren't being treated as demons or seeing everyone die of rock cancer. I have a feeling Belobog will continue to be the place most players feel at home, other than the Express.
i've found it easiest to while away the time by keeping myself busy. if you haven't already, you could start farming relics for a decent build and mats for his levels and traces, and begin planning your team.
outside of in-game busy work, you could engage with the fandom side of the game, if you don't mind wading through a lot of bullshit. you could collect fanart of him that you like, draw him yourself, or start putting together a playlist inspired by him. if you're a writer, you could write about him.
the waiting game is a hassle, but that doesn't mean it has to be painful, too. staying occupied will make the time pass more quickly, and before you know it his banner will be right around the corner!

I like her lab coat thing side on her right and black Rockstar on the left, really cute and smart idea, but before I downloaded it and saw character splash art and thought it was picrel.
Ngl she grew on me and her character is sweet but I don't know if it's my fault for immediately connecting Hsr characters to other media or because they intentionally took likeness to drum up waifu/husbando people's hype. (can't say it isn't effective lmao)
Also Playstation sisters I heard it coming in patch 1.1, no JY but atleast you can get Blade and Luo-nice hair-cha.

kek nice. have any nonnies pulled for him yet? what do you think of him so far?
i'm in the NA server (rip), so i still have a few hours before i can get my hands on him.
i can't imagine he's that far behind Seele–she certainly didn't crash any servers like our boy did!–but hopefully we don't have to wait very long to find out. maybe if the sales are big enough, it'll finally incentivize Mihoyo to put out more male characters more often. a girl can dream…>>296910:(
my condolences, nonna. is Himeko at least a new unit for you? or is she a dupe?
Thank you, I didn't have Himiko before but I am a husbando collector so I would have preffered if I would have gotten a male character (that isn't gepard because I already have him. Atleast her design isn't that bad, she looks elegant imo so i might build her anyway.
>Seele–she certainly didn't crash any servers like our boy did
About her sales, they are high because they include all top ups including for the standard banner and the battle pass ect. Whales want to get all the standard characters so they drop a lot of money in the first patch, so those revenues are included in the random pictures that people have been sharing online about her supposely sales. So in summary her sales aren't actually that high in reality, so don't worry about trying to compare it since stuff like that is inaccurate. Sadly we have no accurate way of knowing how much a banner sales, but the fact that they made the server crash probably is a sign that indeed a lot of people are trying to get Jing Yuan!

and i registered a new account with an asian server today, demo-ed him, ended up liking his game play a lot, pulled for him from my main account and… got a second gepard lol & a bunch of 4 stars. it’s a shame but also it’s also fine, i think now i’ll just calmly collect more wishes and try my luck again on next banners lol. good luck with ur future pulls! fingers crossed u get him nonna after all!!
Thank you anon, im sorry about your pulls and I also wish you good luck with saving and pulling for the future characters you want!>>296975

KEK never listen to any male youtuber. Sorry for genshinposting but since their fanbases clash so much I was already expecting this. They either assume everyone spends money with their dicks so everyone has every single fanservicy female character or just cant stand seeing a male character made for women be so good so now they have to get that character for meta purposes.

sage for design character sperg but I found out why Clara is barefoot and it's the dumbest thing they could think of. I saw a theory saying that the reason she can walk around on snow no problem is due to her being experimented on by Vache for blizzard immunity which would at least make sense. But the reason is because "she isn't used to wearing shoes so she twists her ankles uwu" LIKE WTF. Just a fucking stupid reason to show a little girl's feet ig
kek i thought it was very
interesting how there was a sudden upsurge of redditors complaining about other users–assumedly women–celebrating their pulls of JY by posting pics. as if every redditor and his little brother wasn't verbally masturbating about their Seele pulls until the very last minute of her banner. the absolute state of moids and their compulsion to dick measure when it comes to male characters doing well~ talk about jealousy! i'm not surprised at all that scrote youtubers are downplaying JY's viability, birds of a feather and all that.
it's a shame, but i mean, she is technically

This game has the worst customer service ever. I sent them my account number, username, screenshots, last login time and the code of my tablet on which I'm having a graphical glitch. They just copy pasted "sorry for your inconvenience uwu, please rate us~".
So I mailed them again about the glitch and they copy pasted the same.
My tablet can run genshin on highest settings btw, won't give star rail a single cent this way
Yes, she really messed up the tone at the end of the Belobog quest. I still feel Star Rail character writting is more entertaining than Genshin, but what the fuck was that about? You're supposed to be feeling sad about just seeing a character die and March doesn't wait a single second before going "that sure was some Trail Blazin heehee", ruined the mood with a single line
I still think March is miles better than Paimon though, because at least her and MC are allowed to be actual separate characters, instead of March being canonically glued to mc's ass cheeks for every single second

Hello, I am frothing at the mouth over the leak of this lightcone showing a knight diluc look-alike. Diluc's 3D model in genshin looks so wonky but I am hoping and praying this man's 3D model will look like the diluc of my dreams

same!! i'm super excited too!
spoilered my little annoyance rant & picrel to it too. oh my god it was (and still is) so annoying to witness the absolute shitshow on twitter over this leak. at first he was announced by leakers to be a woman, and ppl went crazy, with all the «its a win for the lesbians!!!» stuff but lets be real its hoyoverse… if he was a woman they would never leave her fully clothed unfortunately, at least her sholders would've been exposed… so yeah, now that all the reliable leakers said its a man, we got picrel and «its a they\she bisexual nonbinary lesbian»!!! god i'm so tired.
ikr! so annoying.>>299664
ayrt and yes
i am with u on that one, like, i'm perfectly fine with him being a man, but also
honkai already has soooo many husbandos… so i just knew its not possible any other way unfortunately. i'm not hyped for kafka or any other upcoming female characters unfortunately too, though i really really wanted to be excited for them… its just sad to me.
i feel u nonna. i think
to do something with blade / jing yuan / dan heng in terms of a big story judging by hints and leaks, but i’m so upset there won’t be any major lore updates till version 1.2… all the female characters so far feel like they can be described with a character stereotype like “protective big sister with a quirky hobby”, “a princess who just learned she’s been adopted into the royal family”, and kafka just reminds me of makima
who i hate with a burning passion. i feel like only obnoxious pornsick moids are obsessed with spoiler and her. and it makes me so sad. i feel the same way about voicelines too… hopefully they’ll add on more & the whole blade’s past story will make sense too.
not only is she dead, but she's a goddess too? i can't compete with that!
jokes aside, the fact we have to come up with a bunch of mental workarounds to reassure ourselves of the romantic availability of a shiny new husbando is ridiculous and stupid, and i'll die mad about it. male players don't have to deal with this nonsense when it comes to their precious, ambiguously aged waifus, so why do we? it's bullshit!
well luocha is pretty much just otto and his entire character is all about having oneitis for kallen, there's also welt who already has a wife in honkai and this isn't yet confirmed and i really hope i'm wrong but they keep talking about blade having a "beloved" and apparently they're using female pronouns and chinese fans were angry they're doing the same plotline again. not honkai but zhongli was implied to have oneitis for guizhong before they thankfully retconned a part of his backstory
it's kinda obvious that mihoyo writers just keep pushing the same trope again and again, apparently their writers think this is somehow peak writing and very romantic, even though the actual female fans made it obvious they are extremely tired of this shit
>>299813>not honkai but zhongli was implied to have oneitis for guizhong
Not to hijack with Genshin lore but no he didn't, the Guizhong shit was entirely a runaway fanmade theory and based on a few excerpts from an item description that mentioned them having been friends in the past. They retconned nothing, the people who assumed they were lovers just because Zhongli received a gift from Guizhong were setting themselves up for disappointment to begin with when she was revealed to be a lesbian. Zhongli is a benevolent figure associated with many figures from Liyue lore, he also saved Xiao from his previous abusive
owner and again his life during the Chasm event.
One of the reasons why I really can't seem to get into HSR or Honkai in general is that the male characters exist to be generic handsome knights for the female characters and have canon wives and lovers and shit. A lot of my friends unfamiliar with Honkai are getting so hyped for HSR and I know their hopes will be crushed once they realize Mihoyo still doesn't give a shit about their female players and Honkai is entirely a waifufag-based property. I'm just hoping Genshin will be more fujopandering
now that everyone has moved on to the HSR bandwagon and they need to find new sources of revenue.
>>300120>Do they think female players find it appealing in some retarded "oh he's so devoted" way?
The thought crossed my mind and there really be some truth in it cause it happens so often and it's usually played as a tragic romance with the male hero carrying a candle for a woman he can never have and no one else can ever match up to.
In can be a compelling device in other forms of media but not in my chinese gacha dammit. They could be stupid enough to believe female players want to be cucked.

well this explains some stuff…. but can the staff members stop self-inserting on gacha characters jfc for me as a player this is so jarring. also she and her character have a crush on otto but he's still obsessed with kallen, so what's the fucking point of it, girl just wrote herself as a cuck
>>300192>himeko is favorite waifu
He just took a photo with her cardboard cut out in bridal suit thats all. She is too old for him lul, da wei is a lolicon.>dyed a streak of his hair white
On an interview the devs were asked if welt was intentionally made to look like da wei, they asked that no it was just a coincidence and laughed. I assume its a running joke among them rn.>>300193
Well some people are more confident than others and dont get jealous over some dead woman, especially since there was an au in the game where otto got over her and became a better person.

Got Bladie. I'm kind of scared to look up build and team suggestions on YT because the sister game's meta ccs left me unable to take any of their words seriously. Lots of talking out their ass or relying on assuming you have the best of everything instead of talking practically. Anyway, even though we got a huge lore drop and lots of action the story felt so short to me. Maybe it's that we still didn't get a conclusion. I don't know if it's just me who felt that way.

give Prydwen a shot, nonna. their build guides are succinct and well organized, and while you don't have to follow their recommendations to the letter, they'll at least give you an idea of what to aim for build-wise.https://www.prydwen.gg/star-rail/characters/blade
as for the story continuation, i liked it fine i guess, but i was really expecting more to come of the Dan Heng/Blade conflict. it's possible i contracted the hype bug from spending too much time in fandom spaces online, but i would have at least liked to see Dan Heng's sin described fully, instead of implied through an easily missed memory echo or whatever the fuck those things are called.

eh let's be fair now, blade and kafka get way more marketing. yes lorewise blade is obsessed with danfeng he doesn't care much about kafka but hoyo forces this pair more on everyone's throats because it's easier to sell to a normie audience (girlboss femdom x broody edgy guy is popular now). it's a weird move because kafka just reads as waifubait in game but outside of it they're pushing this and cucking the fans. also unfortunately, regardless of his past with danfeng right now he is glued to kafka due to being part of their organization and danfeng is also glued to march…
they have the honkturd audience too which is known for disliking hetships so i'm not sure what's going but unfortunately whatever they're doing is working because blade is selling very well. i genuinely believe they brainwashed the chinese renheng fujos who are throwing big bucks right now, they're the most popular ship and giving them some crippled moments is apparently more than enough and then they can go back to shilling kafblade for normalfags and ""yumejoshi"" cuckeans who are okay with the fact that blade has no interaction with their mc as long as he's glued to a woman
and pretend nothing happened
File: 1690664249565.jpg (91.37 KB, 975x478, F1Nf1s-aUAEwWds.jpg)
you're right in that they appear together more in the game but I guess I just don't care that much I just interpret it as platonic and go on with my fujo ways, I really don't get all the outrage, some anons here are way too obsessed with being 'cucked' although to be fair i'm a casual and didn’t spend a cent on the game
just like a simp x e-thot relationship
maybe it's because I don't really care for blade or kafka, so their relationship means nothing to me
ayrt, I agree with >>311744
if they have such depth to their relationship we can see them actually interacting like close friends/whatever they are in those past echoes, no? We can have a proper scene of them talking instead of Blade retardedly trying to kill someone he knows isn't the person of the past.

Started playing this game, I can't take any of the female designs in the ice world seriouslybecause their outfits are so incongruous with the environment. Seeing Clara run around snow with bare feet physically hurts me and I can't wait to move on to the next world so that I can let my Clara free in normal conditions.
I guess this applies to Sampo as well but honestly… He has such a "bully me" personality that I sort of enjoy seeing him in clothes that would make him suffer in cold weather.
In other news, I got Kafka! I was initially turned off by her design because the disappointment of her design in particular falling prey to MHY's refusal to put women in real pants was too great, but I was sold on her within the first ten minutes of the game… She's too charismatic. Gonna ship my female trailblazer with her and choose not to go on any Star Rail related social media since I can tell every post about her will be the same ugly coomer whine of mommy shit.

also I agree with you on Clara. It's so dumb they gave her a design with no shoes. It's even more ridiculous that her reason for not wearing shoes is "she doesn't know how to walk with them on".
And I love Sampo, I hope he appears in the story again later down the line.
Thanks for the recommendation! I've never used that site before, but since I'm evading other fan content I might need it to feed my yume love for her lol>>316704

I'm struggling to play the game simply because the female designs are so fucking bad. I came from Genshin and while people memed on those female designs a lot HSR went way further, every woman is wearing the most ridiculous shit ever. And it gets even worse in the China region, you get not one but two identical sexy fox girls. Kafka is possibly the only adult female character that's wearing real clothes instead of tattered lingerie and even she gets the mommy dommy treatment from everyone. It's like almost every female character is made around someone's fetish and sushang as that one female mihoyo employee's self insert
like the aloof hacker lolis (two of them), foot fetish loli, elegant mommy bride, tomboy tsundere, ojousama, the engineer oneesan, literal dragon loli… I like the boys and the game in itself is enjoyable but god I feel like the only sober person in the room amongst those female designs. I guess the game's just not made for me.

I look at those physics every time I log in the game, thank you mihoyo you did one thing right
I like March 7th, Kafka, and Stelle's designs (an uncoomerish and tall girl design feels like such a rarity). It's enough to get me to stay. But it's literally only those three. I'd include Clara as well, but her being barefoot is so clearly a fetish thing… A waste of a neat concept as I AM soft for her relationship with Svarog.
Some of the designs are genuinely unbearable to just look at. Like, I wish I could enjoy Bronya/Seele but I hate looking at them.
I wish it wasn't so hard to find a gacha that doesn't suck shit at least 50% of the time when it comes to female character design. The only one I can think of might be Lord of Heroes.

Its basically those girls for me too…i like himeko because she's pretty but her design is still on the pandering side. I really liked that robot girl from the Xianzhou story too. She looks unique and non-coomery, so I'll roll for her too. I think I'll mostly stick to rolling boys in this game.
File: 1692853579699.jpeg (49.28 KB, 640x360, IMG_0194.jpeg)
This is probably the train autist in me speaking, but Himeko's design is my most hated female design in this game. I want a cool conductor lady but what I got is a woman glammed up in an evening gown with a conductor's coat thrown on…? Pass. I do love Pom-Pom, though.
Samefag from >>317146
(sorry for dunking in Himeko like that immediately after you said you liked her… I feel bad now) but that robot girl is so cute! I haven't gotten to the Chinese area yet, I'll look forward to her.
I think Lynx is cute out of the upcoming characters as well. Meanwhile with Topaz I can't help seeing an inferior version of W from Arknights.
It's good for a Mihoy game, isn't that sad? I say this as one of the anons who said she liked her upthread.
It was already ibvious, but the gendered split in discussion over character designs in this game really drives home how drastically different designs appealing to men and designs appealing to women can be. Women fucking hate female character designs in HSR and vice versa for men.
On a side note, whenever I see female streamers like vtubers thirsting over female MHY designs, I have to wonder what planet they game from.
>>317157>On a side note, whenever I see female streamers like vtubers thirsting over female MHY designs, I have to wonder what planet they game from.
Women who unironically love coomer female designs perplex me. I can see thinking that they're cool and a female power fantasy being sexy and she's just like me if you squint really hard etc but how aren't they bothered by the obvious disparity between the sexualization of male and female characters? How aren't they offended by literally every
female character being sexualized in some way, including little girls? Some of them are obvious NLOG pickmes who want to show they're not like those ugly fat feminists hating beautiful women and some of them are those weird ass mentally stunted yurifags who shit their pants in rage at the sight of a bishounen and only want more pornified moidgaze lesbians, but the people who don't fit either categories yet think Seele is peak female design are beyond my understanding.

I actually like fuxuans design, for me it's one of the best in the if not the best for woman even if they don't fit her position. her outfit colors fit nicely (in compersion to seele for example), theres not too many details in it I think it's pretty cute over all.
>>317358>Yukong especially disappointed me because it's so rare to see a mother character (even if her kid is adopted)
It's so fucking hilarious that they pulled this TWO times in a row, Cocolia with Bronya and Yukong with her daughter, absolutely no shame. I guess they have to pander to the mommy fetish but still have to have the women remain virginal, and possibly have their daughter be fuckable as well. Honestly during the entire Belobog arc I was way too distracted by Cocolia walking around in her underwear to take her seriously as the "supreme guardian", and only facepalmed harder when Yukong came along. How the fuck come Jing Yuan is given an actually noble outfit showing his status and my lady Yukong is here dressed like a stripper with her thong out? >>317435
Her design would be so much better if she didn't have the traditional Mihoyo armpit&bared back fetish pandering. >>317447
Honestly most female designs in Genshin were boring but in HSR they're just unapologetically ugly. Designs like Serval, Seele and Asta are a hot fucking mess wearing the most mismatched pieces with no composition at all. It's like someone just pressed a "randomize" button.

What percentage of HSR text do you nonnas actually read? Right now I'm steamrolling content to get pulls and there's just so much text that I find myself skimming… But then I inevitably see something that catches my eye and makes me regret not reading, kek.
Not to be that obnoxious Genshin comparer, but on average I do actually find the writing in this game to be much more interesting, both in terms of the actual lore and simple entertainment value. I was genuinely surprised the first couple times sidequests actually had me feeling something even if I only read bits and pieces of them. The underground fighter who whittled away his health after losing his family, just for the sake of donating to Natasha's clinic so that he could somewhat fill the void left in him, made me emo.

I found myself doing the same as you in the beginning, nona. I'd skim through most text because I was initially only interested in pulls. But now I wish I'd paid more attention to the build-up of the story. Moreso in the Space Station and Jarilo-VI, I didn't care much for the Xianzhou Luofu storyline personally. If I could continue to stay/progress in Jarilo-VI then I absolutely would.

Good luck to all of the nonnas husbando-pulling! Sending you my strength!
I usually use either the Korean or the Chinese and have found both to be enjoyable. It's a nice change of pace when most of the media I consume comes with either English or Japanese voice acting options only.
I'm curious, what is everybody's favorite VA for Sampo? His performance varies a lot between the languages, and the English in particular seems to be polarizing with fans. I personally like the Korean the best, it has the right mix of attractive and pathetic sleaze to it for me. The English is fun in it's own way, but having heard him in the other three languages first it just sounds way too different for my ears to integrate as him.

Thry look like reskins of each other to me, and I kept waiting for another character to comment on it when the two were introducedin the story. Unless I missed something, it's never brought up. Am I insane for thinking they look identical?
Makes sense to me. You're the ones baffled over people enjoying a game's story in the game's own thread.
I'm never going to be somebody who calls Hoyo's writing good but man you need to find something better to do with your time.
>>318659>They look identical
Yes>In game people would notice that
No. They're used to seeing fluffy haired fox women around and if they're self aware enough to tell npcs and pcs apart, they know a certain group of female characters/people dress skimpy and almost identical because it's always the same fetishes. Tbf all characters have the same face except for eyes and to give them a foxy look they went with a similar shape.

anyone else dropped off this game hard?
The new event is so boring to me, it's mostly just dull text with not a lot going on. I'm also not a fan on how much they're dragging out the main story.
I loved the Space Station and Jarilo, but The Xianzhou Luofu is so dull. I really wanted to love this game, and I did for the first couple of months.
