Agree, I was really invested in Albedo's lore and I HATE how it's event locked. It was one of the most thrilling stories in the entire game to be honest. I could explore Dragonspine for hours too, I hope there will be a winter themed event again this year.
As for Sumeru's expansions, I think there were leaks that Sumeru will get an extra area at some point similar to Enkanomiya, Dragonspine and Chasm while the desert areas were part of the "main map". I could be wrong though. My problem with the desert is that looking at a brown wasteland for hours is just boring
. The rainforest area had a lot of different details so running around was exciting, while the desert is just sand and rock all around with no variation. The final area was a bit better, but the two desert maps were practically identical and the underground areas had nothing besides local specialities in them, no puzzles, no nothing. The final one was a lot more interesting to explore, but god, I don't know what they were thinking releasing two identical maps. Made me miss Tsurumi.

As an interesting tidbit they fully rendered his body under that shirt for a web animation so he's canonically shirtless. Picrel is the sprite people dug up

Yelan - Top tier Hydro sub DPS, perfect if you want another Xingqiu.
Kokomi - Healer, works as Hydro enabler.
Neuvillette - Support, but will probably work as a mono Hydro DPS unit too.
Furina and Hydro traveler - no clue about their kits, haven't looked into them
Judging by what's drawn and what's not I think the design intended for his jacket and shirt opening to be bigger than what we got.>>313126
Xingqiu. if there is a chance to get him C6 then honestly he's kind of above all 5 stars as far as how he clears abyss in national.
But if you need one asap get Yelan even if her design is bad, she's strong. But if you can wait get the hydro archon. Archons are usually really good majority of the time (looking at you can't-pick-anything-with-my-burst-Venti)
File: 1691343660718.jpeg (188 KB, 1073x960, IMG_9604.jpeg)
Venti is my “main,” I guess, since I use the fuck out of him and there are very few things that don’t get sucked into his Q since they made the specters suckable. You can usually time it right to hit other things that don’t. By far the most annoying though are the kairagi because of their dash.
Thank you for making a new thread, please ignore the trolls in the last thread. In your image there are literally multiple female characters, I also like Arlecchino but I don't see the big deal with this being the thread pic. I never imagined seeing multiple anons so triggered
over a thread pic kek.>>313133
The first half of the current abyss is actually super good for Venti, every enemy can get sucked by his ult except for the herald I believe.>>313126
Honestely the only hydro characters I use to get all stars in the abyss are Childe in one team and Xingui on the other. If you have those 2 you don't really need any other hydro character. Good thing is, you can get Xinqui in paimon's bargains, he will be in the shop in September and March.
>>313173>I never imagined seeing multiple anons so triggered over a thread pic kek.
It was one samefagging anon having a frothing at the mouth fit over their waifu not being picked because "we" agreed on it i.e. one anon suggested and multiple anons replied saying "no" kek. Pretty sure it was a troll though because that's the lie I tell myself as I don't want to believe anyone has a meltdown over a completely neutral threadpic like that. >>313159
I don't get it either, he sucks up almost every enemy except bosses and the heavier elite enemies like lawachurls and geovishaps. He's still the number one crowd controller in the game and his burst makes most domains a ridiculously easy feat to beat.

Agree, it was clear it was just a bitter childish anon that wanted to own the "twitterfags" that liked Arlecchino or some shit, kek.
The backlash would have happened either way, because it seems there are two or three bpds that are also triggered
by the sight of any female character. I could already picture the "shit thread pic" posts if the OP pic had been Arlecchino, kek. I think it's childish as hell, but this an anime gacha game, so I don't expect mature people in the thread anyways.>inb4 reeee
I'm not gonna read your posts, so don't bother, eh.>>313210
I hope Venti reruns with Wrio and not Hu Tao, because I might pull for his weapon then. Still missing Venti's bow…

I actually got it from one of these threads forever ago. before he came out, some nonna called him that and I thought it was too cute not to use
>>313214>puts together the perfect revised thread description
Nta but a revised thread description is standard, not an unnecessary demand. Back in my oldfag days people didn’t make new threads unless they were certain that they could make it revised and complete.
The thread pic debate is retarded though
Hey nonas I come to tell you that if you use your serenitea pots and buy the weekly resin there you can keep it to Fontaine, it can last 13 days.>>313260
Listened to it yesterday and the one I embedded, the music and especially Lyney's theme are gonna be so good.
I was thinking about new domain and new boss if anyone's getting Lyney or Lynette. Like this week 60 resin and next week before update another 60 that's 120 aka 3 boss runs! Good for those who haven't saved any resins (me)>>313270>embedded

If I have a dendro team with Alhaitham and Baizhu, who should fill the 2 other slots? I’m thinking hyperbloom since I’ve heard it’s low investment but wouldn’t it be stupid to have Kuki heals and Baizhu C1 heals? Don’t have any electro 5-stars but have all electro 4-stars.

I also thought this was weird. While the girls have tight garters, Lyney gets loose ones.
If you have Fischl you can use her instead of Kuki but if not who cares? Double the healing double the fun lol
And add Xingqiu for the last slot>>313373>>313375>>313374 >>313376
I can't help but say ew outload, why is everyone so… one unintersting color mixed with black and white or shades?>>313380
As much as I'm for equal treatment for both male and female characters I'm glad? I hate majority of female characters because of their moidy coomish designs, knowing them they probably can but wouldn't resist adding mini thigh spillage if that was the case which wouldn't really be good fanservice? Idk I hate all thigh spillage thingie. They could atleast add any skin to burqa-kun (ily anon who called him that LOL)>>313393
It's because that's all you see in game, they're trying to make the backs have these hideous unbalanced fabrics because majority of the game you see them running from behind so the only way to feel it's a different character is from how many things are flying when they sprint

Though subtract a bit since they calculate getting all stars in Abyss and that's unlikely if they shove those fucking beasts again in the next one.
Her fluffy hair is so cute! They really couldn't help themselves and had to put those tentacles on the back of her head. Feels like a mood tacked that on to the final product.>>313376>>313375
What's even the point of giving them skirts if they're just going to borderline have their pussies out? There's no fashion.>>313374
No comment on burqa-kun cause my disappointment is immeasurable.

They're supposed to look better in 3D but uh the only "good" ones imo are the trio of siblings.
I like Focalors' design. Really wish they gave her short hair and longer shorts or even pants though. But the overall bratty tomboy theme is cute.
Fontaine tall male designs are a complete downgrade from Sumeru. Hiroshi Kamiya also seems very poorly cast and directed, even if they were trying to bait Shizaya fangirls or something. Voice doesn't fit his look at all.
Iirc Hoyo hires popular VA to attract their fans to Genshin first them whether they for the character or not last kek
I don't think there is one Japanese VA that isn't popular in Genshin.
It's noticeably different from the other 3 languages too.
sometimes it's fine when one version's voice direction is very different from the others. JP Yanfei's voice is one of my favorites across all version and the only one that feels right for her character. Eng Yae and Eng Mona are the only ones that sounds appropriately smug and haughty.
JP Neuvillette is really not it. Different but in the sense that it's easily the worst out of the 4. >>313595
and some of those popular VAs have been absolutely wasted on particularly bland or one-note Genshin characters
Neither look that
good. Lynette is a boring tits out teenage catgirl, she doesn't stand out among the other new designs and lyney has terrible hair. Freminet looks 100x better than both.>>313729
You're still not sick of monochromatic blue color schemes?
File: 1691605808393.jpg (140.76 KB, 1920x1080, genshin-impact-lyney-ascension…)
I think because they have simple but straight to the point is what makes them good. Reminds me of early Mondstadt designs instead of slap as many bullshit as you can ala >>313375
especially. What are those ship's steering wheels on her hips doing there lmao>lyney has terrible hair.
I found his hair to be cute af in preview. What don't you like about it btw?
File: 1691622130128.jpeg (146.55 KB, 850x1136, IMG_2206.jpeg)
Yep most of genshin's iconic and recognizable designs are simple and cosplayable/drawable. Easier shape and less details is always better, I don't get why they add so much. Their designers have genuinely no taste.
I love Genshin because of the open world but I find it so hard to have a favorite character because even Mondstadt ones were kinda lame. Arlecchino is the only design I've liked in a while, hope they don't give her shitty redesign with thigh highs and blue color scheme when she gets playable. And even though I usually like male designs in games more, I'm having trouble liking any aside from Alhaitham (and him I like for his face and simple grey hair, the clothes again have too many details).
File: 1691623810130.jpg (436.68 KB, 1111x1570, F0GLbMFWwAEHtP6.jpg)
I always thought gachas have the need to make those outfits filled with details for 2 reasons:
1. To make sure their generic characters that don't usually get much character development don't get mistaken for characters from other gacha games (i. e. they try to create super unique designs to stand out).
2. Because gacha games are usually pngs, so they need to create a compelling, very detailed image to make sure the people who whale feel their spending is justified (?).
But the last point for Genshin is stupid, because you aren't pulling for a static png. But I guess mihoyo hires gacha artists, so it makes sense they are used to creating very complex designs.
File: 1691650796189.png (1.39 MB, 1920x1080, lyns.png)
I always thought EN VAs were a great match for the characters 99% of the time, now I'm realising it's because English voice acting isn't popular like JP and the VA won't make any significant amount of people play the game just for them so they can cast for the match to the character rather than popularity.>>313797
Their designs are copy pasted from their real life inspirations. Video in picrel: https://youtu.be/G0o0ba4-bUI
File: 1691651847516.jpg (316.69 KB, 1638x2048, F3FZ1-ibQAExyUM.jpg)
I fucking hate the English dub VAs and I can't believe anyone but ameriburgers afraid of foreign languages would subject themselves to the them since every ESL person I know uses the Chinese or the Japanese dub. Yes I know the female characters sound like shit in the jpdub, but I don't play female characters and the engdub ones sound like they're screeching into the microphone with the worst nasal cartoon voice they can make. The chinese ones sound perfectly fine. They also get into twitter slapfights or are outed for sexually harassing their fans or being openly racist all the time, how anyone can take them seriously or support them is beyond me. Remember when just a few weeks ago Cyno's engdub VA was calling Amber x Collei a pedophilic incest ship because he headcanoned them as "mother and daughter" and preferred the more coombrained Eula x Amber? That's the kind of retardation they constantly get up to, not to mention their acting being amateur hours all over. Most of them aren't even professional enough to belong to a union and then they cry about the scummy localization studio not having paid their wages in 6 months.
Idk man, I think EN is on JP level or a bit worse. They miscast once in a while. And the worst is shrieking Paimon that you hear all the time, and the girls trying to emulate uwu high anime voices (like Collei, Amber…). From the newer characters Mika is straight up unpullable in EN and Furina sounds insufferable, in other languages she sounds princely.
JP has really bad Neuvi, Candace and Tighnari and that's pretty much it.
File: 1691657465060.jpeg (196.68 KB, 1267x712, IMG_0929.jpeg)
I’m an eslfag and while I genuinely think the eng dub is bad, I play it just so I can listen to dialogues without paying too much attention/being able to scroll on my phone >>313797
If you like Kirara’s design over Lynette you genuinely don’t have a good eye for character design. Even with the V-neckline that Lynette has, it gives more early Genshin vibes like pic rel than Kirara. Early Genshin characters are till this day the most iconic ones that people cosplay and draw the most. There less cluttered. I’m not saying that Fischl for example looks more dignified than Kirara, she doesn’t, but she sure as hell has a better design than most new characters from a design viewpoint.
File: 1691659005662.jpeg (295.3 KB, 1800x1202, IMG_2215.jpeg)
Clorinde rant, she isn't too cluttered but she's such a downgrade from the initially great looking design that I won't even acknowledge her. Now she does look too generic, like a random hot captain NPC. I can't get over how every single one of the concepts was better than the final version because NONE of the concepts had the dumb white shirt boob window, where the fuck did it come from?? She genuinely is walking boobs, her whole design is dark except her chest. And of course most of her fanart is fetish shit because of it.
I've seen tiktok girls say she's such a relatable character and is for the girlies because of her bursting buttons and I think that's hilarious and willingly oblivious
>>313859>I can't get over how every single one of the concepts was better than the final version
This. Literally every design on this sheet is better than what they ended up with. You worded perfectly why she looks like a pair of boobs on legs, you can literally see NOTHING but those tits about to burst from her shirt. I really wish they went with the green one or the black/purple one but someone on the team said we don't have enough blue themed girls in the goddamn game I guess.
>I've seen tiktok girls say she's such a relatable character and is for the girlies because of her bursting buttons and I think that's hilarious and willingly oblivious
Jesus christ, some women grew with male centered media and it shows. The "you can't scoff at anime women being given focus on their big tits all the time because it's literally oppressing us girls with big chests!" narrative unironically makes me want to commit unalive

>>313859>>313861>single one of the concepts was better>Literally every design on this sheet is better than what they ended up with.
Hell no, are we looking at the same designs kek? Almost all of these are ugly coomer garbage. The red one in the lower right has disgusting thigh spillage that's even worse than Eulas, a corset to push up her tits and an open back, and the red one on the lower left just straight up doesn't wear any pants. ALL of them have Eula length booty shorts. If any of these designs actually became the final version, everyone in this thread would be crying even more about how coomer Clorinde is. What we got is bland as hell, and the buttons are cringe, but at least she looks kind of dignified from a distance instead of like a cheap hooker whose major design focus is garter belts.
I will forever mourn the purple version because it's the only one I've seen that actually looks good. The blue designs are okay as well, but I'm so sick of thigh highs on every single female character.

You think THIS is better?
Not reading all that but I'm >>313840
and ESL and I know that only american monolingual weebs ever fight people who use EN voices. You not being used to hearing anything other than anime doesn't make EN voice acting worse. If you spoke the other languages you'd think they're as bad as EN anyway, Korean is very cringe for example. They all sound like characters rather than people in every dub, you're just an insufferable weeb who thinks Japanese makes everything better because you don't have the capacity to know any better.
I love how posts like this always ignore how it was explicitly stated that Chinese dub is the best choice and go straight to "s-shut up weeb!!!!!" like it was the biggest own ever. >Not reading all that

Wait wait WHAT LOL
Goddammit I don't have a twitter and nothing milky came up when I searched Google. If you witnessed the whole thing can you tell me what instigated his hot take?>not to mention their acting being amateur hours all over.
So much fucking this. Adult characters' VA usually do a good job, but the teen and kiddie voices are so bad I physically cringe. I immediately switched to Japanese after hearing Klee in this update. You can actually hear her VA suffering to keep the uwu voice it was painful.
File: 1691667123469.png (1.71 MB, 2814x1985, saab.png)
Sorry for the shitty image but Alejandro Saab (Cyno's eng VA) started arguing fans that Amber and Eula are Collei's "moms" and then when people told him how stupid he sounds since Amber and Collei are canonically only around 2 or 3 years apart in age he tweeted the last tweet in the image both as a reply to the original person he replied to and as its own standalone tweet.
If you need to compare them then Shenhe also isn't memorable at all and Eula is on Clorinde's level in coomer bullshit. But what's problem is that Clorinde is literally all dark and really boring except her chest with bursting buttons so it looks really ugly and you can't really look anywhere else because there's nothing eye catching. When I looked up her fanart literally every second one was her boobs bursting out of her shirt and bouncing and other gross shit, she was literally designed for this fetish. One of the worst designs so far in my opinion, partly because I know what could have been so I'm very disappointed.
Sorry for reposting but I wanna add that just wait for the jiggle physics to come in play, it's gonna look absolutely ridiculous.

They named the bitch chlorine lmao
maybe I'm just overexposed to fan meltdowns and insane screeching over ships but that seems really mild as far as arguments go. acknowledges he has a character headcanon (without using that word thank god), didn't actually insult anyone directly, let them know his limits which are probably considered quite normie but didn't actually tag any ships as icky. >>313844
of the CN cast: male voices are good, tall female voices are good, child voices sound very natural. but every single one of the medium female character voices in CN sound exactly alike in addition to also sounding fake and unnaturally high. EN medium female voices at least have some variety.
That being said, I dislike how every single one of the Eng VAs immediately try to turn themselves into e-celebs/livestreamers and spokesmen for the characters following their cast announcement.
He didn't just "have a headcanon", he "assumed everyone saw their relationship that way" and then accused of people having that ship of either pedophilia or incest, whichever he meant in his follow up despite Amber and Collei being one of the most non-offensive ships in the entire game. It wasn't straight up screaming and cussing or Paimon's eng VA level meltdowns, of course, but the message was made clear. Especially because he did continue the argument beyond just those tweets.
>I dislike how every single one of the Eng VAs immediately try to turn themselves into e-celebs/livestreamers and spokesmen for the characters following their cast announcement.
Kek if I had a dime every time some random amateur voice actor made a big "I'm on Genshin!" announcement expecting fame and it turns out they're playing a NPC side character I'd have my characters c6'd. And yeah it's extremely cringe to see them being all "As character's voice reading a script, I know better than anyone how they would react" especially when you know male voice actors do that all the time to woo underage fangirls like Tighnari's VA did.
File: 1691674689728.jpg (760.76 KB, 2464x4096, 20230626_112613.jpg)
Nta- that what bothers the most about English VA so much and I'd rather die than switch to English; their extreme thirst to fame and intrusions in fandoms. Like this Cyno's VA is a VA for fuck's sake WHY would he say that when he knows his words have weight for Cyno fans and shippers?
Cute cringe like Childe's VA singing parody songs is fine, why dont they do that instead of "uhm sweaty" shippers, kinda creepy.
I took a look at Japanese and Chinese VAs (dont know any Korean ones) social media and streams and they don't do any of this.
JP VAs are established industry professionals who don't need to do anything. Many CN VAs seem to already be vtubers/streamers before getting casted.
Anyway. They may just be less obnoxious because the CN fandom is terrifying. I recall hearing that Sara's VA got flamed for liking a cute Itto/Sara edit. Meanwhile, Aether/Scaramouche's CN VA is getting doxxed and has nasty rumors spread about him, such as that he slept with male writers/developers to get his job, because the CN incels hate Scaramouche.
While the EN VAs can be obnoxious and unprofessional, I think I'd rather have the EN kind of fandom environment where VAs have some freedom to express opinions. For example, I do not personally care for Cyno/Tightnari or Alhaitham/Kaveh. However, I think it's still kind of nice that the VAs felt free enough to retweet ship art content or create fansongs even if they were inevitably taken down a day later.
I never hear about Sara's VA, poor thing. I remember Kokomi's Chinese VA getting harassment on stream because they were upset Kokomi cant crit/not good.>nasty rumors spread about him
I think I heard about that, because iirc he keeps teasing and acting like a kawaii ugu little boy on streams hence why "it's proof" I remember Cyno's VA with his Vtuber friends were far more uwu soft boys than him yet got zero shits? Yeah %100 about Scara kek
About English VA+Fandom freedom I half-agree? They might retweet Alhaveh or Cynari or any of the approved ships™ but thats all theyre allowed to share or else getting cunculled!!! Hence that guy is putting more shipping rules on Amber and collei by considering incestuous and pedophilic!
File: 1691684812486.jpg (1.9 MB, 4050x2775, FuVmQqVXsAI0u7t.jpg)
The answer here is to stop following any of the VAs on social media and just pick the voice acting you like best. The voice actors are doing a job. They don't own the characters. I hate the JP voice acting so I just don't use it, simple as that.

A new character, Emilie, will be in the latter parts of Fontaine. Looks like she comes from the Perfume lady/witch concept leaks. No news on her rarity yet but her art shows an Anemo vision. Imo all of these designs are actually cute, though I wish she'd stayed with the older woman model and the poodle summon.
There's still hope for the Musketeer to show up if the Perfume Lady made it in.

Same anon as above
Saving Mika's bday pics I saw this image peeking and the name Daman Mills hit me like a truck. Context The kid he groomed literally had evidence he kept trying to get nudes, talking to him about his growing penis, sexual conversations and get them to meet and the boy never wanted anything to do with Daman and, the story was getting traction even though his fans tried using but "he's gay you're attacking a minority" card but the whole story stopped when Daman brought his lawyer. Wish I could link the KF thread where everything was archieved but I can't access it
It's basically far worse than what Tighnari's previous voice actor did (and thankfully they did fire him) but they hire this guy?

>>313862>I will forever mourn the purple version
Same, nonna. I couldn't believe that they would toss this striking design in favour of that boring watered-down thing they picked. I don't know if Arcane had as big of an impact in China, but when I saw Clorinde in the trailer, my first impression was that she looks a lot like a Caitlyn knockoff now (didn't she have a sniper gun too?). I'd have pulled for the mafia design based on looks alone, the current design looks like a 4-star and will go straight into the "huh I forgot this character exists" corner of my brain. The silver lining is that we can save more primos I guess. However, I personally am not excited for any of the fontaine cast apart from Arlecchino, goth girl and cloud retainer (if she really comes out in 4.X), and probably pulling the archon for meta reasons. At least it's a good opportunity to get some cons on older characters, but it's gonna be one ironically dry-ass region for me.>>313877
I feel like this has to do with men not understanding female friendships. When Sucrose talks with Collei about her social anxiety (I forgot if it's a quest or event), I thought it was so touching and hit too close to home
and an unusually well-written scene of 2 young women becoming friends. Amber and Collei's friendship is also sweet, although I didn't read the comic, I think anyone who gets to know Collei becomes protective of her because of her past, but that doesn't make it incest jfc. Scrotes really read these interactions completely differently, it's wack. >>313564
100% agree with everything you said. I'm so disappointed that they use Natsume's (my #1 favourite anime) voice for that old crusty man in a nightgown (sry anons who like him kek). It doesn't match at all. I absolutely hate the english dub, but his eng VA is actually way better because he has a deep voice, and the CN one too iirc. I don't understand their decision for the JP version.

Happy birthday, cutie!!!!>>314077>I didn't like Tighnari having a female voice in the beginning either, but now I feel like it fits his gentle nature perfectly.
Same! Tighnari has a very soothing voice and I love it. The VA is used to doing male voices, so you barely notice it's a woman.
>>314077>Daisuke Ono and Hiroshi Kamiya
At least this means we're getting a shit load of fujobait kek>>314104
I was going to comment on it then deleted what I wrote but I was thinking they might be fake given it all died down when the lawyer got involved. It's easy to prove those messages never happened while everyone on social media believes screenshots. Also makes sense they would cast him knowing the legal result as they reacted very quickly with Tighnari.>>314098

>>314104The lawyer thing made the whole thing weird. Leaked DMs aren't usually for the sake of legal case but for people to be aware or take action, like there is no case against Tighnari's previous voice actor but the word spread so much he was rightfully fired.
Here those DMs give %100 creepy guy vibe not a bunch of teens messing around.There was word he and his mom were intimidated by Daman's lawyer that he took back everything was said.
BUT I genuinely hope it's a teenage boy being an asshole and wrongfully accusing Daman. Sorry for derailing, the only way I want to play my Gacha with a clear conscious without unintentionally supporting a groomer.
As a subject change, what do you guys think about this artist? I don't like Shenhe or Yelan but her artstyle is cute.

Wriothesley is apparently a Cryo catalyst, not polearm as previously leaked. So it's very unlikely he's a physical DPS. Rejoice! Can't wait to see him punch with ice fists.

What the fuck???? I was expecting everything but this?? Goddamn, we fucking won?
I'm so happy, I really REALLY don't like physical DPS, I can't believe this is happening….
He will probably be a mono cryo DPS won't he?
I'm just… so happy, omg…
File: 1691816854291.jpeg (2.12 MB, 2100x2100, IMG_9726.jpeg)
I’m so happy I just got Kokomi! In 30 pulls. I wasn’t going to pull for her initially, but I’m glad I did tbh. She’s going to be so fun.
No way! Horray no physical dps, since anyone can be physical dps with some fine tuning (minus catalysts ((and bring the idea of eye of perception or I'll die)))
I'm kind of feeling I might skip Lyney to get both burqa and Wario, knowing my luck it'll take 150 wishes each and I barely have 200.

>>314239>anyone can be physical dps with some fine tuning
Nta but that's 1.0 info. They no longer let characters be built as dps if that's not their intended usage. The numbers just aren't enough. Before anyone whines>You can still give them really good weapons and artis!
Yeah but the numbers will still be shit compared to if they had decent starting points and anyone who wants a specific type of character (physical husbando) wants it for the meta purpose so numbers matter. Getting a character designed to be a physical dps isn't the same as giving an R5 5 weapon, cracked artis and the best 5
s support characters to make another character playable as physical dps in the abyss. You could invest 5% of that into the physical character and get the same result if not better.>Why are you sperging about shit that doesn't matter
I tried to build every character as physical DPS at some point. It doesn't work and I want to save nonnies the trouble and resources of trying.
File: 1691832429408.jpeg (28.09 KB, 496x334, IMG_0944.jpeg)
Yup and that’s from a reliable leaker so it’s definitely gonna be true. We get two husbando catalysts, Wrio and Neuv
File: 1691837256259.jpeg (32.08 KB, 403x403, IMG_0945.jpeg)
Yeah and Wrio is most likely some kind of boxer catalyst since he has boxing gear on his hands and this was in his concept art
I just googled abbystea and from the art style I'm guessing it's the same artist? And I just saw what she posts, I had this picture saved from a long time ago I didn't know the artist kek sorry >>314254
I can see Wrio having some punching and kicking moves and Neuv having Baizhu-like moves

male korean genshin players are apparently whining about Lyney too. Saw a post about it on twitter yesterday and today this pic comparing the like/dislike ratio of his teaser in various languages is getting passed around.
Why are they such babies lol? The gender ratio is still extremely biased in favor of female characters. The probably best character of Fontaine, the archon, is a medium female character. Clorinde and Navia are upcoming. The release of a bunch of male characters means they get more time to save for their precious waifus instead of whaling with actual money. Lyney's outfit is a bit more revealing for a male but not nearly as revealing as the majority of female characters and we're following that up with burqa-kun too if they really want a fully covered male.
I doubt anon knew the source of the picture but that said goddamn that looks so traced, I absolutely believe the Russians who accused abbystea of tracing her/his work. >>314293
I think it's because Lyney is portrayed as such a gentleman and a "ladies' man" while Gorou had that Miss Hina thing and Venti was a meme character so it was easier for them to co-opt them from female players, but similarly to Scaramouche (who they also hate), Lyney is just a cute twink that girls like and he's being underlined as a central character in the story. Add to that the fact that Furina isn't a big booba waifu but seems more like a princely tomboy, not even captain boobs on legs is going to make it up for them.
Oh crap I forgot about Ms.Hina, guess my mind deleted it because it's so unapologetically coomer-ish. Though Liben(sp?) if memory serves said that the people of Fontaine adore Ms. Hina so prepare yourselves to see an event about it.>Lyney is portrayed as such a gentleman and a "ladies' man"
I also forgot men are so retarded they feel threatened by cute boys/guys who characterized as confident kek.

Those fighting gauntles do imply that he's a boxing type catalyst like >>314266
said. He looks fine as fuck, absolutely going to pull for him.
I'm anon who said I'll get Lyney and skip these two
I'm a liar holy shit Wrio looks so fucking cool with those gauntlets and boots.
Burqa's design looks good in splash but I need to see his abilities. If he's a hydro support that helps with hyper bloom then I'll just pray Lyney's rerun will come soon kek.
Lyney is literally just wearing garters and a sleeveless top. The majority
of female characters have skirts/shorts in the size of a belt with armpits showing. I hate sharing a fandom with male gamers they always do this. >>314315
I can’t wait to see his in-game model cause the wolf ears hairstyle is so cute. Might make me pull. Planning on getting Tartaglia and Lyney on his rerun cause I’m not sure about monopyro yet.

Damn he has the Vi gauntlets, wasn't expecting that. I hope the standard rumors are false too and he manages to powercreep Ayaka, I'd love to see the male seething.>>314290>>314296
God Korean and Chinese moids are the worst, they truly have the most retarded things living in their heads rent-free. They should be happy they're getting to save primos for their trashy Captain Boobs.>>314314
He looks very regal here. I don't know if I'll pull for him, his kit sounds pretty niche, but he looks nice.
Still kinda meh on him but I like his splash art much more than his in-game model. Curious about how his burst and attacks will look in-game.>>314315
Hot damn. He looks fantastic
. Love the gauntlets.
I tend to really like catalysts. Very looking forward to finding out more about their playstyles.

One thing that's hilarious about this is that he looks good in his splash art is because he shows his legs. They could just make a cut from the front to make him look like that but nooo, Burqa Frollo for life.>>314315
HANDCUFFS. Please have one of his animations handcuffing hilichurls or something lol.

Minus Diona, which has no reason to be there other than to fill the loli quota, everyone looks good. Especially Childe with his Uta no prince-Sama look kek and totally pretty Albedo though Zhongli looks boring; his actual ingame clothes could fit here
I also thought he gave an utapri princely idol vibe kek >>314566
Love how we’re genuinely calling him burqa-kun continuously now
Asian moids are the absolute worst. https://www.reddit.com/r/Genshin_Impact/comments/15qcz1l/debunking_the_post_about_kr_community/
Sorry, I’m on mobile and don’t want to post a million screenshots, if anyone else can do it. We need to continuously ridicule these scrotes.
It was such a hilarious quick read.
Tries to debunk, but immediately proves that KR moids are nasty. Though it looks like the redditor's goal was attention more than 'awareness' tbh, that was alot of nothing I've read to try and emulate the Chinese one. But there are no cat murder so that's a relief.
I agree with >>314583
we don't neither screenshots nor anymore of these reddit posts unless something actually happens and we kind of all figured that they hate feminine male characters which is why they're mad.

lyney is not a ladies man, none of the male characters in this game flirt with any woman other than the player (if she chooses lumine) and THAT'S A GOOD THING. he's a conman, he plays tricks and manipulates everyone. i don't get the yume obsession with forcing husbandos to be playboys and skirt chasers, it's gross
>>314314>calling neuvilette burqa
you guys are weird and behaving like moids now. women have always been attracted to male characters in full suits and the likes (tumblr sexymen anyone?). i like skimpy boys like lyney too but a fully covered man can also be appealing.>inb4 cope
genshin doesn't have a problem with designing revealing clothes for male characters, but in neuvilette's case his outfit suits his character more and showing random patches of skin would make him look just as ridiculous as jean's armpits
god i have a lot of problems with star rail and the female devs obsession with making canon self-inserts.
it's true that a ladies man is seen as a gentleman, but it's a gentleman who is also very flirty with women. i would call it a more tame version of a playboy since it still gives the impression that he likes many women, not just one
I've been play for more than 2 years and my barb is still C4 I legit hope Lyney wishes will get to C6 she's the only 4 star Mond character that isn't c6 ugh>>314673>i don't get the yume obsession with forcing husbandos to be playboys and skirt chasers
It's normal. Have you never talked to any girl that has dreams of her husbando flirting with her? It's pretty mild.
Also nice Lyney pic, really wanna see his story but the fact that's after TWO archon quest I might watch it on YouTube. >>314677
Chill it's a joke because his design is smothered, he was also called Frollo if you're new and wanna comment on that>inb4 cope

This is official stuff posted by Genshin so I’m not spoilering. Fontaine being the center of Teyvat is so weird. Center? If Natlan is on the left side of Sumeru like the NPC said, and Fontaine is above Sumeru and Liyue, Sheznaya must be huuuuge for Fontaine to be center.

Nta, but my Barbara's C6 has saved my ass in the Abbys so many times that I have lost count. Hope you get her to C6!! I wish I could give you some of my C18 copies, kekk.>>314711
Nona, don't worry, the splash art we got before is his burst/skill, just like how Scara's drip art has him with the hat and the splash art doesn't. His 3D model doesn't have the gauntlets on when he is idle/not fighting. The gauntlets are probably on because of his burst, but it would be cool if they are a stand mode skill like Childe's, tbh!!
So wait this place is gonna be like Liyue/Sumeru? Where you can go there even if you only unlocked Mondstadt but with Kaeya ice Bridge or this port will always be open?
I fucking hated speed running to get Heizou mats way back when so it would be really cool to just zoom to Lyney mats and boss.
>>314723>>314726>VAs: Daisuke Ono and Hiroshi Kamiya>not fujobait
Yeah I dont think so. They even gave burqakun an ill fitting JP voice to make sure the fujobait duo got fujobait characters kek >>314731
Yeah that's why it's unlocked right after Mondstadt's quest, that's about the time you would start to level up your characters above 20 I think. They're also giving catgirl's mats for the first ascension so both of these must be for new players to level up more easily I think

Omg anon Thank you. Hell this will be good to players who want to get mats from other worlds, especially newbie worlds.
Here I come AR20 worlds to take lvl 90 Lyney mats lol.
Also about the fujobait thing they can work really well together if Wrio is a bit tempered with whatever Burqa does.
>>314677>Nooo you guys can't joke about how most male characters are fully covered in clothing and show no skin, because I decided that all women like that!
He's so handsome, when I first saw his old designs I thought it would suit him better. But now I actually really began to like his design.>>314712
I'm still not sure how I feel about his hair, maybe it looks better in game.
I don't wanna be negative but it's going to be such a let down to see his in-game model be a moe bobblehead on a skinny, definition-less body. His body's way too nice and unsupported in game.>>314714

Everything is so perfect with this man, I'm praying his kit isn't mid.
Thanks nonna! Do you know if that dancing-robots enemy is a new weekly boss? I kept my third discounted run for that just in case but I don't even know if it's coming with 4.0. I wish they'd let us set commissions to Fontaine a day in advance too (fuck that desert weasel comm). Another small tip as someone who pulled Alhaitham and was getting spammed with join requests, put your avatar as Lyney if you've pulled him so people will know they can't farm in your world.
Praying that Wrio is limited. Only 3 men for an entire region, please let us have at least this, Hoyo.
Do you know what we needed after the last two on-field dps hydro males?
Another on-field dps hydro male :)
Fuck off mihoyo.(:))
File: 1692026639585.jpg (71.03 KB, 1024x768, F3foudhbcAE9e36.jpg)
I think he can also work as sub-DPS, no? Cmiiw, but is skill is kind of similar to Yae's. I think they wanted to make him a hybrid character that can either work on-field or off-field?
Wriothesly is clearly an on-field Cryo dps. That description sounds almost like a cryo Hu Tao with how he drains his HP for extra power and heals himself. He sounds like he could be strong. I have some hope.
Neuvilette is like… A hydro Yae? A bit odd but I guess it's good for taser and bloom teams.
I've never changed my Tarta avatar and forgot that I can thank you for remind me nona
About new weekly boss; nah. Lyney and co. will use Apep's mats>>314769
Wario seems op with his own punches healing him when he's below %50, which is awesome, I want to solo things already with him
But Burqa's kit seems to be boring
Not really, for what I understand? His skill is a single attack with 10s intervals to create orbs and his burst seems to be a big attack followed by a smaller attack that creates more orbs. His kit is all about creating those orbs to power up his charge attacks, which seems to be the actual meat of his kit. So a CA dps.
He has very little going on for off-field as I read it, but I could/wish to be wrong.

No, Petrovski, I just wanted to know if Qiqi can deal with the electro things Scara boss summons during the second phase, so I would know if I had to bring Bennett or not. I'm sorry you are retarded and think everyone is out there to fight you or smth. I couldn't care less about what stupid underleveled characters you use.

Omg they're so cute together. I know they're not really siblings but they cute little gang interactions are the only reason I'll get Lyney and risk getting an extra con from either Zhongli/Tartaglia for Fremi.

I play in the european server. I usually bring Bennett when I do Scara's weekly boss if there isn't anyone in the party that can break the Electro thingies. But since Qiqi was already a healer AND cryo, I didn't know if her skill was able to bring them down.
There are a lot of Russians playing in EU that don't know English. Sometimes I think they have gotten mad at me for no reason at all just because I messaged them in English, kek. Maybe they think I'm insulting or mocking them or whatever, since they don't understand what I'm saying. Sometimes I wish genshin had a internal machine translator or something…

>>314933>Utapri Childe pic
Cryo can break them but Qiqi is too short and slow with her skill that she sucks in that fight. The only ones who can't are Hydros, learned that the hard way with solo Childe. Let his Fatui mate beat his ass all the way Hoyo ffs
I'm in EU server too and suffer from the same problem with Russians, the only way to go around it is to use the Venti or Mona heart stickers after saying anything kek>always using Benny in Scara co-op
The sacrifices of people who don't want to lose and let others play their fave characters aah.
Why do the Genshin thread only anons abuse reports like this? Co-op is
full of literal children who need help. You are a grown woman with no reason to do co-op complaining about how reprimanding complete strangers for using characters you don't approve of hasn't gone over well lmao.

Before we leave for Fontaine what was your favourite thing about Sumeru?
Yeah I get you, sometimes people take a character like Shenhe without anyone else taking a cryo character. And then I just wonder like, do you want us to take a cryo character for you? Like you I almost always need to take Bennet or Baizhu. Because no one else wants to take a healer or shielder, but they also don't bother to dodge the attacks.>>314941
What are you even talking about, how is that abusing reports kek. That anon was infighting and taking it way to personal, and so are you.

>>314939>the only way to go around it is to use the Venti or Mona heart stickers after saying anything kek
Aah, good tip! I might do that too from now on. Although it feels weird to do that after every sentence kek.
Also, thank you for answering my question about Qiqi, because that player died before the electro thingies appeared on the field and I couldn't test if she could get rid of them kek.>The sacrifices of people who don't want to lose and let others play their fave characters aah.
Aw, I love you too anon… It's not a big deal, I don't mind bringing characters to help others, especially because I know most people don't even know how the game works, kek. I enjoy playing supports anyway.>>314962
Right? Like, once, I was doing some Azhdaha runs trying to help other players, and we died once, so the host switched characters to Nilou. Nobody was using a dendro character, so I tried to explain to her that Nilou wasn't good without Dendro. She said "Okay, I understand" (without being an ass or passive agressive or anything) and then… proceeded to start the fight anyways, kek. I just laughed it off and even the other teammates were also like "dude…" when that happened, lol.In the end we had to repeat that fight like 4 times or so, I got so frustrated because not even my strongest healers could heal my teammates since they kept charging towards Azhdaha when he stomped the ground… So I solo-ed the boss using my Tighnari, kek. I think that was the first time something like that happens to me.>>314951
Good luck, nona! Hope Childe comes home in the first pull!!
Thank you for your sweet good luck wishes. With the power of nonas’ wishes I’m sure I’ll get him >>314921

The Aranara quest was my favourite part of Sumeru. The rainforest in general was pretty good. I didn't hate the Desert but it's was a bit bland apart from in the Underground and ruin areas. The Sorush area was nice. Most of the characters were pretty good too apart from the Dehya fiasco.>>314971
Zhongli is like Xiao, anyone who wants him probably has him already and there isn't a huge point in going past C1-2 unless you're C6ing him out of love. I'm sure they put him at the beginning of new patches in case new players come to the game because his shield makes the game so much easier.>>315026
Hoyoverse needs to get that beefy man model finalized already. I can't imagine Capitano or Varka on the current tall model.
Do my eyes deceive me or his butt is kind of round?
Need to get him to glide from somewhere for scientific reasons kek
Anyways I like how he looks from front and back but wish there was a pose of him standing idly since his legs are clashing in this T-pose one

Completely agree with you… I really don't want this game to turn the few males we have into male power fantasy gigachads (?), picrel.
Should be in ~5 hours., unless they go late on maintenance.>>315073>>315089
I'd hate it if we lost our bishie men but I think the beefier model is necessary for at least those two.
Agreed. Male fantasy muscle bros are generally hideous and disgusting and males get catered to plenty. Wriothesley's at the perfect ratio of muscular vs bishounen for me, personally.>>315025
Don't worry. The cape's clearly going to be fluttering around when he's moving.
Damn, well I guess I'll try that next time.
I'll still probably get a bigger harddrive for the PS4, it's surprisingly easy to replace.
Actually servers will be open in like 10pm (your time) I don't know why they add the extra hour in the live stream, I always get in there that time>>315118
Im also a PS4fag that suffers from this kek
If you have access to 3.0 USB flashes they can be the hard drive but the minimum is 250GB on those. You can use them as extra storage

Deleting the game didn't fucking help. Aw well, any nonnas have a guestimate for when Wrio's banner will run?
4.1 will go live around September 27. We still don't know if he will be first or second phase. Either September 27 or October 18.
Don't lose hope if you have good internet!
Go to Settings > Application Saved Data Management > Saved Data in System Storage > insert your normal virus free USB stick in ps4 >copy to USB device or if you have PS+ you can upload the save file there and delete the big games and reinstall them later with the saves being preserved
To get the saves aferwards go through the same route but instead of "Saved Data in System Storage" go to "Saved Data on USB Storage devices"
I think it doesn't even delete saves when you delete a game anyway.>>315133
You just have to pick what's least important/a game you haven't played in a while.

I stumbled on the main side quest for Fontaine before starting even step one of the Archon quest. I don't need to know where to find it, I'm good, it's just funny.
Also I found and fought a Giant Enemy Crab. It's flat out called that.
ANONS WHO GOT LYNEY HIS BOSS IS NOT THE SAME AS LYNETTE
His boss isn't the guy dancer I now have 26 of those mats and I don't want to cope about the wasted resin kekk>>315167>The inevitable surprise is ruined now.didn't the trailer/preview had them both bowing with Fatui lady that I can't spell her name behind them holding them like puppets?>At that second spoiler text
WHAT. Oh no did they ruin him? Is this in the first or second archon quest, I'd rather watch it since I can't play for a while
File: 1692177431313.jpeg (377.13 KB, 1431x2048, IMG_0975.jpeg)
Unfortunately for me I can’t start the archon quest because I have Sumeru character quests to finish. When I get home from work today I’ll just let those auto play while I do chores.
What’s everyone’s thoughts on Lynette? I think so far she’s got a really strong design and plays well. >>315177
You should start playing for him! You’ll get free rolls and a lot of primogems if you start now. Thankfully, new players can even access Fontaine if they’re past the mondstadt story quest which is really good.

It's his 5th best weapon. Don't waste your pulls on the weapon banner unless you don't plan to get any of the 5*s in the upcoming patches.
>>315176>did they ruin him?
Nah he's the same as ever. I'm just one of the rare players that hate him so I want to be allowed to be mean.
He shows up pretty quickly in the quest once you get to the city.>>315178
I still haven't finished Dehya/Baizhu/Yoimiya2 quests. But those have nothing to do with Fontaine so I can leave them for later.
I never ended up doing any of the one time reward domains in Sumeru either.
File: 1692179728756.png (5.88 MB, 2205x2976, hj545la343.png)
No problem nona, I understand the urge to pull. This weapon banner is incredibly baity but we must remain strong.
Only Dehya shows up briefly at the beginning of the Fontaine quest, you might just be able to advance one step at a time until there's no conflicts rather than doing all the quests?>>315188
Yeah but the leak was they're blatantly orphans which means they are probably trained spies/assassins
so I immediately got suspicious about the magic bag thing when we're probably not supposed to.

Hope you guys are ready to C6ing your Bennetts for Lyney! 'cause I still couldn't press that button>>315185>one of the rare players that hate him
That's a actually rare lol. Why do you hate him is it like character or gameplay reason? Or both?
Yeah that explains a lot as to why I can’t progress. I’ll just do her’s and see if it works out. >>315192
I c6’d my Benny forever ago and I’m so thankful I have a use for him now! Still got to get Lyney but that’s ok.
>>315192>Why do you hate him.
I don't like that he was a villain, is probably still sort of a villain, but he acts like he's our best friend.
Also I don't like fighting bakas. And his design isn't anything special/my taste to make up for it.
I have an annoying feeling that however many years from now the Fadui's plan will probably be revealed to be the right thing, but they're just so damn shady.
I play on my laptop unfortunately, but I'll figure something out. Thanks for the super clear instructions though, nonna!>>315185
I hate him too. I think the hate comes from annoyance?
It's always a little less than 180 like 160 approx.
You need a total of fourx 6,480 package but if you've never bought it before you can buy one get one free once a year so three times ($300 if you're American)
Though tbh nonna I'm against spending this much on Gacha. Buy Welkin, explore and quests until you get said character

Lyney is so fun, nonnies! I was going to skip him, but after playing his trial, I want him so bad. Unfortunately, I only had 50 primos saved. Got a C1 Lynette, two Barbs, and two Benny cons. I may have to wait for his rerun.

Are there any good guides on this Ouisa(sp?) thing? I read few that explain that's it's like light and dark but how to spot which is which visually in puzzles or monsters?
-When a monster is has purple parts do I keep hitting with Lyney or Lynette?
-What the heck do they mean by balanced?
God these new things make me feel so stupid because I feel the answers are there and my brain is too dead to get them.
here's mihoyo's expalanation: https://www.hoyolab.com/article/20767650

It's a way too long article with animated images.
Yeah I know its dumb but I've become really smitten with Lyney's design and concept lmao, I'll just be patient though and hopefully it pays off or I'll get lucky.

Abyss 12th floor? No/Difficult.
Abyss is not mandatory anyway, it's just endgame content that gives you 4/5 wishes every 15 days. You can complete combat events and get primos without having to min-max your characters.
Majority of my teams are husband-only. The only units that need female characters to work are the Dendro characters, because there are no Electro male supports (I'm still waiting, mihoyo).
Aww no problem anon, I think it’s so much easier to visually learn too! >>315259
I know a lot of anons disagree cause they call him a fag kek but I really like Lyney a lot too!!
Heizou is still the absolute best for how dating sim-like his hangout is.
Yes, he's charged shot/quick swap.

Never gonna happen 'cause alot of moids play as Lumine.
However you do have hangouts? They suck but eh, still.read fanfics nona, they're way better than what hoyo would write>>315266
Charged shot that drops his mascot to be a decoy and then it shoots a homing shot afterwards. He's actually strong and although he's compared to Ganyu you don't need to curse yourself if the charged hit doesn't land, because it freaking homes on the enemy and a decoy all in one.
He loses health when he attacks but his skill will help him regain it.

Nice, nona, see you there! Fontaine looks pretty good so far! There are so many things to do that I'm kind of getting overwhelmed, kek.
Also, I love that there is an event that encourages exploring the region to get familiar with all the new enemies and materials.
I know. I Finished that domain and found this no-ass-vision-water-skirt funny, didn't expect it to be this big kek>>315356

I love taking photos and looking at the scenery. I also love the puzzles, they make me feel smart when I manage to finish them without looking at guides.
But sometimes I think there are too many enemies in the overworld and that they get triggered
very easily. Like, maybe you are walking really far away from them, but they still spot you and start chasing you all the way to Snezhnaya. I also hate that the majority of them are all hostile. I wish some of the enemies only attacked you when you got really close to them or if you attacked first (kinda like how Sumeru animals are friendly sometimes.)

Yeah kek so hard to guess
, you need to study more…
anyways, it's not the only european nation we'll have. after natlan, which will be a mix of native america and sub-saharian africa, there's snezhnaya which is based on russia.
Wriothesley's are up too, but not on Youtube yet.https://streamable.com/30ddq8
Rejoice handcuff anon, he has a handcuff animation. And his ult looks a lot smoother than Dehya's mess of an ult.
Maybe it's because I dislike him in general but that water cannon looks so stupid. I know they were trying to make him look as epic as an archon but the way he T-poses while firing a huge beam of water is goofy as hell. And it reminds me a lot of the Honkai games which I despise.>>315408
I love him so much but his normal attacks and skill animation are 4 star level… What a disappointment.
I'm inhaling copium that the animations look better when you hit enemies plus they usually still fix a bit and add more effects before it comes out of beta.
If not, another copium is that leakers all said he feels very satisfying to play no matter his animations.
exploration is my favorite part! Fontaine feels quite satisfying so far. They managed to make the landscape and music feel very distinct from Mond. >>315392
I'm interested in Natlan. There's not a lot of hype since we have almost no lore or characters from the region yet. The setting, like Sumeru, also seems rather underused in anime video games so it'll be cool to see how Genshin adapts it. >>315393
Unrelated but. Wanderer's already pretty good to use for exploration. However, he feels really
good to use in Fontaine. So much water, so many slopes to fly up, really easy to get from peak to peak.

I benched the waifus but are these two okay to play with so far? I got Xingqiu from the beginner banner. Dont think I’ll be able to roll on the Lyney banner for a while since it seems expensive to do a 10-roll and the primogems are trickling in
Very good. Kaeya is actually pretty good and a very underrated character. He is very easy to use! Also, yeah, Xingqiu is a top unit. Him and Xiangling are top tier 4* characters.
Also, don't be like me and don't be afraid to use their bursts when they are charged. When I started playing, I refused to use them and that made things a little more difficult for me I think, kek.
Don’t get me started with this anon!! Warning for Act 1 spoilersI don’t care if traveler felt lied to, who the fuck answers "that was in the past" to someone explaining that they were orphans and fucking (sex?-)trafficked by a pedo who held multiple girls hostage. Of course they’d be fine with Arlecchino, she saved Lynette from a disgusting man and gave both of them a home under her full protection But we’re supposed to feel like the traveler? Making two orphans who had no choice but to join the fatui apologize to us over and over again and not forgive them? They better resolve this in the archon quest, not make it story quest exclusive.
Also a feminist rant:Aside from the character designs of the women, the real issue here is the disrespect to female players. We can’t even get a shitty isekai experience without kidnapped and killed young woman and trafficking to aristocrat rings being a plot point. Did they have to bring the patriarchy to an anime fantasy world? The way traveler even says he’s not interested in solving the case of the disappeared women holy shit. You spent hours on dates with Yoimiya and shit during previous archon quests, you can be bothered to protect young women literally being killed asshole.

So far writing has been really good and I'm suprised after the series of letdowns from Sumeru, especially Nahida's second story quest. I feel they got a whole new team for writing Fontaine.
Though suprised they let "Paimon's pissed" pass. Isn't this considered a curse word kek
Ok finished the rest of it.
And to start enjoy rotting in prison till the next update Childe. And the whole thing was just a bit of filler-ish stuff to introduce us to the farce that is the justice system and the Archon so that next quest we can reveal the real mystery of the Oratrice. I do wonder how the dumb brat Furina ended up the new Hydro Archon, I don't think it's going to be like what happened with Nahida. And I wonder if they'll ever explain elves, it's just Alice, Klee, Layla and Neuvillete. No NPC's with pointy ears and nobody seems to think it's weird that these guys live so long.
Of course the whole case would be because the guy wanted to bring back his lost love, though that diary with the baby names threw me, thought they would add an extra layer of tragedy there. And there were sewers, and of course the poor people live there, at least it wasn't a dungeon with poison water or something.
Overall I wouldn't say it's better or worse, just a different theme. The mystery was pretty cliche if you've read even just a few mystery stories or watch procedurals.
Now I'm gonna take my time exploring, I got through that last desert part a bit too quick. Hope there aren't too many quests tied to commissions this region. Still never finished Garcia's thing in Sumeru.
God I benched him for more than a year and forgot his existence. His C6 being actually useful here what was I thinking putting Layla instead of him jfc
Thank you so much, now that it's Bennett/Lyney/Thoma who should be in 4th slot?

>have someone else die on screen in a violent way
>visit someone's grave and watch two characters come to terms with his suicide
>still the most fun main story quest so far
They really figured out how to write interesting stories huh
Right? It's shocking how they actually went in pulling no punches. Also add instead of the serial killer being forgiven and empathized with, the spirit of his wife he "did all this for" refuses to meet him and tells him that the world would be a better place without him and that he should just die. For some reason the English script used the term "drown" but the original and the Japanese ones explicitly stated "die"
. The sex trafficking of children
and drug trade
really weren't something I expected them to feature in Fontaine.
Wtf I knew about Clorinde her thight blouse but I didn't realise you could actually see skin of her breast because it doesn't close properly. I hate her design so much, it's funny because at first I thought I would hate Navia her design the most. But now I'm playing the story and Navia is a lot less coomerish then Clorinde. Like yeah it's a still a stupid outfit, but something about Clorinde her design makes me so much more uncomfortable.>>315748
Thoma is not that good with Lyney since he won't do any NA. Because of this you aren't able to stack his Blazing Barrier when using his ult. Ofcourse you can also use only his E but his shield will be a lot weaker and his c6 buff will only last for 6 seconds since you can't use his ult and then NA with your dps to keep stacking his shield. I think like the other anon said that Yanfei C4 is a better option since her shield is stronger if you can't stack Thoma his shield. You could also just use Zhongli and use no anemo character, since Zhongli does have a res shred. If you prefer dps over comfy then use Kazuha instead.

I didn’t think I’d like Navia but I ended up liking her because she sees through the bs. Her voice actress is bad though. Part of me wonders if Fontaine is inspired by the OJ Simpson trial where people see it as a show rather than a real case.

Today I deleted an insufferable "woke" genshin player I have been talking to from my contacts.
Recently, she said she was dissapointed that Mihoyo keeps releasing male catalysts that throw punches like Heizou (talking about Wriothesley) and that she wants to see a male character like Kokomi, quote "I want a male catalyst with pink, frilly motives, something cute, with elegant animations". Thoughts? Would you like a character like that? I feel like we already have Baizhu, and Neuvillette also looks elegant enough. I dislike characters that have retarded uguu animations, like Sucrose or Barbara, and I don't think I would like to see a male character doing the same.

These girls are upset that Hoyo won't release girly men or men in drag for them to make trans for woke points. They won't even get said character if it was ever released. Lyney was supposed to fill this role for them but him being playful/gentleman ruined him for them.
Btw when it comes to Genshin players pick husbando lovers, which they usually have it in their signature, and yumejos, those who say they're ____ wife (kek), as your friends, they're usually (keyword usually) chill.

I find wriothsley and the other guy boring to hideous, wrio looks like he's going to be popular with moid yumes and fags or like he could've been designed by a man / with making a male character that doesn't upset male players that much in mind. hope he isn't standard banner and he flops, his reception has already been pretty mild outside the few "ooh a man use your handcuffs on me daddy" anons here. but I'd instapull a male kokomi.
Nah, they can't and don't self insert into the more masculine but still thin bishie genshin characters. They rage about them all the time. You say Lyney is female gaze, I disagree, I think something like athletic but pretty-faced and clean Alhaitham is more for women than Lyney, underage looking with garter belts.
I've only seen moids self-insert into silent manlet (standart isekai protag) characters like the male traveler/xiao or ugly power fantasy musclebeasts that I expect Varka to be.

I know a girl that does this with the Genshin husbandos. I think it’s based she would do this tbh.
I would love a male character with a more delicate/pretty vibe that doesn't look retarded in some way. Not really femboy shit with frilly stuff, just a genuinely pretty man (by female standards). Baizhu is elegant but I wouldn't call him beautiful, and Neuvilette looks old and ugly kek. I think Xiao and Lyney can come close but somehow they still don't look beautiful or elegant. Kaeya but with a more delicate look would be perfect. Also I wish they would ditch the ugly pants and baggy/loose shorts for male characters, they either look shonen-y or boring. I agree that Wrio doesn't look great, he's just boring.>>315836>He/him fujos
I'd tell you to stop interacting with twitterfags but unfortunately it's impossible because this game's player base and fandom is plagued by genderspecial autists.>>315862
How can you tell he was made for moids? He's pretty, charming and he wears a cute outfit. All of these make moids seethe, he's not even as femboy-looking as Venti. They were seething when Gorou came out too, because a cute male being shirtless is unacceptable to them. Also the garter belts fit his theme, I don't really see them as a sexual thing and to me he's more mature-looking than Xiao or Scara (might be the hat idk).

I thought about it too because of armpit fetish that I'll never understand, but if he was made for moids in mind he would have puffier shorts or anything to 'inflate' his hips and thighs or his waist to appear smaller than his hips but nope, he's a straight line barely any bumps.>>315868
Their cringe is so cute and so 2000s like OCxCharacter in dA's shitty bases tier I always cheer them on and encourage them.

I unfortunately know more than I'd like about what men are into so I'll try my best to explain.
Characters like Alhaitham or Childe were made for women. Women generally like more subtle fanservice like a slight show of abs, buff arms, and shiptease with either other male characters or the Traveller. Lyney wears what's basically a genderswapped version of what the more coomer-y female characters wear which, obviously, is what weeb moids go crazy for. Women not so much. Obviously some women like femboy twinks, but if you look at Alhaitham and Lyney side-by-side you can very easily tell that the devs weren't targeting their female playerbase when they gave him armpit windows and garter belts. The armpits especially are just such a male fetish, I've never seen a single woman who's attracted to armpits that belong to a very slender male character.
The only thing that's female pandering about Lyney is his lore and flirty personality towards the Traveller, but when they designed him back in 1.0 they were definitely not thinking about appealing to any women.>>315877>the fact that a twink in a terrible nightgown has more hype behind him speaks volumes
I think the only reason people are hyped for Neuvillette is because of his lore and flashy gameplay. There aren't a lot of players who are in love with his design. I've seen a lot more love for Wriothesley even though we don't know anything about him yet, Neuvillette usually has something like "I wasn't into him until now, but…" attached to any compliments.
File: 1692390165068.jpg (204.57 KB, 1024x768, FmXx3M7agAErqYT.jpg)
Venti is one of those characters that unfortunately appeals to both coomer moids and women. >>315855
Cyno for some reason has a lot of self-inserting men. Maybe because his first appearance in-story was stoic and somewhat edgy like Xiao. Him and Diluc are the ones I see self-inserted most.>>315822
Ayato and Baizhu to a lesser degree are pretty elegant, though not Kokomi-tier. The Musketeer design looked elegant, though again not in a Kokomi way.
Mihoyo got in trouble with the CCP for making Venti. I don't think they'll go much further than that.>>315877
Itto definitely appeals more to Western audiences. He's popular with monsterfuckers too because big oni man.
File: 1692390889822.jpeg (1.16 MB, 2881x4096, IMG_9776.jpeg)
I cannot be the only woman here who is insanely attracted to this character. I need more beefy men with their whole chest out, hoyo.
you're overestimating the amount of attention players pay to the lore, but a prison warden character would have just as much if not more intrigue if he was a bishie.
>I've seen a lot more love for Wriothesley even though we don't know anything about him yet, Neuvillette usually has something like "I wasn't into him until now, but…" attached to any compliments.
and you're looking on reddit, right? a vastly male dominated space where the few women present are pickmes. you don't have to make excuses, the gap is big when you look at normal female communities and it's consistent with how male characters have been recieved in the past. bishies will always be more popular than these stocky macho man types.
A prison ward who punches stuff has more intrigue than a 10000 year old water dragon that shoots huge lasers…?
A lot of anons in this thread, some parts of Twitter that aren't just tweens and most of my friends that play Genshin all agree that Wriothesley is more attractive than Neuvillette. You're the one who overestimates how many women prefer old men in suits to buff guys with scars.

I love Fontaine… The world quests all being connected was so fun to theorize about, and the new world lore bits were satisfying. What do you think so far, nonnies? There's also so many cute spots on the map. As someone who loves idling in beautiful places and make photoshoots, this region is a treat. Had some great fun touring with my characters, and I'm excited to see more! Can't wait to see Berrypuff grow up.
Didn't start on the archon quest yet, since I've been putting Caribert off for the longest time… To the nonnas who started it, has the new archon made an appearance yet? I want to see what her deal is. I already disrespected her by sitting in her stupid little throne and I feel I should let her know.
File: 1692417056370.jpg (475.49 KB, 4096x2234, nmFsuJv.jpg)
Yes. You meet her in the first part of the quest, very early on
I don't know why you dislike her (?) but she's very different than the other archons, I feel like you should definitely start the quest and meet her lol

Well, I lost 50/50 to Tighnari. Best case scenario if I were going to lose, honestly. I now have him C2. Team ideas? I know he’s good, and he’s cute. I’ve also got him to lvl 80 with upgraded talents.
Neuvillete a twink? Don't see it.
I am more interested in him now after doing the story though, I thought he might be villainous but he seems smart and chill. His sleeves are dumb, but I like his Warlock boots.>>315960
I lost the Kazuha 50 to him and leveled him up cause he's cute, but I just use him for bow trials so I don't have to use Gorou or the girls.

Haven't started their quest yet because I hate how they look so much. Why couldn't they make something as cute as Aranaras and less furry loli/made in abyss characters.>>315960
Goddammit, sorry nona. But he is the best standard character imo so kind congrats it wasn't Dehya or Qiqi? Safe guess is Tighnari/Fischl/Collei/ because I have no idea what characters you have.
The most important thing is that you have another Dendro for its resonance and an electro to get him to spread.

I don't know what fandom spaces you live in because everyone everywhere is down bad and hyped for Wrio even though his gameplay seems basic. If you don't like him okay, I prefer sumeru males too but no need to say everyone hates him because it's just delusional. He's getting tons of fanart and is pretty much very liked by male and female players so far.>>315906
Also delusional, he's not bara at all. Do you know what bara means? Refer to picrel.
Wriothesley is literally slightly toned guy, not a muscle beast. Is Alhaitham bara to you?
Oh, I don't hate blue heckler, I'm actually pretty excited to meet her! Especially since every non-original archon is bound to have a storyline tied to the cataclysm. I really like finding out about the previous archon and how they died.
Thanks, that makes me motivated to catch up!
Can I ask why this shit would even matter? Even if a character was designed to appeal to moids they can still be liked by women and vice versa. Korean incels hated Lyney so much that they mass disliked the trailer and they like guys like Haitham as the post from >>314582
explains. There's no such thing as Male players like this but Female players like that and it's pointless to argue about this. And it's so stupid to try and make a distinction between armpits of slender characters and characters like Al Haitham, it's all the fucking same degeneracy

Fully agreed. Shit like this shouldn't matter. Cool bishounen characters and sweet boyfriend candidates? Moids will self insert into them. Twinks or vaguely effeminate characters? Moids will sissify them into loli traps. Bulky and/or muscular characters? Moids will draw grotesquely exaggerated bara porn of them. Undeniably gay male characters? Moids will turn them into complete jokes and faggot memes or act like they don't exist. Men will literally ruin every kind of male character women like because guess why, they feel threatened by them and react by colonizing them like they always do. They start by throwing a chimpfit like they did when bombing Lyney's character trailer and then start coping with their prison gay femboy fanart or by genderbending them into big booba waifus which was the case with like 90% of hentai tagged with Venti back in the 1.0 era.
I overall have a really hard time believing that Lyney was created for men to coom over when he's intentionally made so charming and cool despite his short shorts, him and Freminet has the same aesthetic as characters like Ciel from Kuroshitsuji. As if a ton of otome games and fujo mangas didn't have the cute short twink character included in the cast, the anons who have an aneurysm yelling about """femboys""" sound like they have a superiority complex over their own taste being better than other women. All of the male characters in Genshin are designed with women in mind due to half of the player base being women, if you've ever played other gacha games you know what the actual moid powerfantasy male characters are. And honestly, even if they were made for men, then steal that shit away from them and make them a women's thing. Just like they do to us all the time.
File: 1692467003215.jpg (362.49 KB, 687x1130, cons.jpg)
The quality is so shit for some reason, but anyway, these are the characters I have. Sorry nonnies, I'm so shit at team building honestly.
With those options your best bet for Tighnari is Fischl, Collei, and then a shielder like Beidou or Thoma. If you're really good at avoiding enemy attacks you could run Kazuha but you'll have to be dodging attacks all the time.
If you want to prioritize ease of play I'd recommend rolling for Zhongli next patch, he's the most versatile defensive unit in the game.
File: 1692469554527.jpg (1.42 MB, 2800x3509, IMG_20230209_220904.jpg)
You can play the game however you want ofcourse, but that's a really bad team for him. All you would be doing is good for Kaveh and barely that with his bloom bombing but not Tighnari.>>316079
Zhongli is suet strong and still relevant but she has both Baizhu and Layla, unless op doesn't want any of the next husbandos (or is loaded) then go for Zhongli.

I want to know why a child works at a prison. I know Sayu works as a ninja and Diona at a bar and it's anime loli logic but a prison in the nation that had the most violent crimes committed on screen so far? Also I need Wriothesley being a good father figure in the main story. Hope she acts like an actual child instead of a totally mature child worker obsessed with her job or something
That art is so cute omg>Siegwinne
She has rabbit ears so I'm assuming it's a new race that's like 500 years old. So far I think these two are like siblings than father-daughter because iirc and I don't know if these leaks are true but both are color blind
also she's a 4 star healer >He looks like a wolf>She's a rabbit

Agreed, a stoic man with a violent job being the caretaker of a child or younger person he does anything to protect is such a common trope in every forms of media. Hell we even have Childe who talks about his siblings all the time in this very game. There's also Baizhu who's Qiqi's guardian but it's not like HYV made him just that.
Well, shit. I'm just really disappointed in Wriothesley's design being wasted as a babysitter when he could be a gritty no-bullshit warden. Adult male being a caretaker to a little girl relationships bore me to tears and I find them more grating than cute because it always becomes all about the kid. And child characters in Genshin are always way more annoying than they are cute. >>316288
What's weird about it? It's the same for Albedo. He barely has a personality outside of tending to Klee now. That Plantbedo killed a good thing we had going on with him.>>316293>Agreed, a stoic man with a violent job being the caretaker of a child or younger person he does anything to protect is such a common trope in every forms of media.

Also nonnies, the hot musketeer guy from the leak. I haven’t heard much about his playability. We know that perfume lady Emilie is coming but nothing about him. I saw this champion duelist npc though and that’s definitely what musketeer-kun is too!! Now I really want him to be real

It literally baffles me! We just kept going more and more underground in the desert. Like pic related, even though the game didn’t acknowledge it aside from an achievement, this is the door to Khaenri’ah. We literally went that

Oh thank god I was starting to get tired of having Kaeya bruteforce against Cryo enemies, I almost caved and started using Amber. Time to rush to AR20
I'm doing okay with Kaeya bruteforcing for now and then using the freeze tactic with Xingqiu for other enemies, but I recently reached the snowy(?) area to the left of Mondstadt and thats when I realized I wouldn't be able to do much there without some form of pyro kek I'd just rather not use any waifus
I have 3 days so I should be okay to reach ar20 by then for Bennett
Honestly I like it a lot. It's very vibrant and the underwater exploration took some inspiration from the non-scary parts of Subnautica, a bit clunky but the visuals are stunning. The music is great too and the archon story is imo the best so far (I speedran most of the story to get here and Fontaine story seems a bit less outright for small kids like most of the archon quests feel).
But take me with a grain of salt, my friend and I hyped ourselves up for fontaine a lot and were looking forward for like two months so I might see it more positively than it actually is. I also like that we only have a small part of fontaine now so it isn't overwhelming like Sumeru was to me. Sumeru had better character designs though.

I love the underwater stuff and the world quests are a huge improvement over the desert's. If you come back they've made desert exploration a lot easier now with the layered map actually showing where the hell you are down there.
In other news, they've updated Wriothesley's ult animation to show one of three stickers when he casts it.
Scrotes don't want baby mommies that "come with a baggage" but women are expected to swoon over a male character's only personality trait being getting along with a little girl. Coincidentally it's never a cute little boy but always a female child. There should be studies about this trope. >>316525
I don't know what it is about the world quests but they're so much more interesting than the desert ones that I actually had to force myself to do. Maybe because we're actually learning about the world and not some stupid NPCs and their problems?
Oh my god Musketeers are my only weakness, too bad he's not gonna be in 4.0-4.6 banners.
I also hope the design on the right is what's approved, really like that greenish yellow shade. >Inb4 bland shitty design is announced>>316525

Today someone joined my world to farm Lyney's flowers and he said that it's a shame I don't have Dehya otherwise she would've saved Lyney from alot of damage and wouldn't let him stagger while aiming, is this true?
Now that I think about it she was made for pure mono pyro and she couldn't fit with any vaporize or melt teams. Like was this their intent when they released Dehya? To be there instead of Xiangling? I don't even think she can save him from staggering while aiming tbh
On that note, Lyney is really really strong and I can't believe I'm seeing 50-80 with him while he's still not maximized. Guess Childe national lost it's Bennett forever need a new Pyro healer/attack booster. >>316537
Brilliant idea nona! I'll shamelessly steal it and redraw it with Neuv looks too kek
I'm guessing it doesn't help that there's no child boy model. If there were playable child boys we'd probably have women taking care of them.
The closest we have there is Eula watching over Mika and even then that's barely part of either's story.
And Dehya was watching over Isak, so it looks like female charas have ties to male children.
Tbh I don't feel like it's creepy. I think it's probably just meant to be cute, maybe I'm naive idk.

Too goddamn squishy. I'm glad Zhongli can shred but the many flashy lights can't make me see when Zhongli's shield is down until Lyney is immediately thrown around

Also, why does time still go even in camera mode, the moon moves too fast.
Lmao I love Fontaine's locals and their police/fbi/whatever actually work in their region. Those mafia guys in Henri and Virgil's
quest were a breath of fresh air of people actually getting things done without much of traveller's help.
I liked Luca, hope he makes an appearance in the future.>>316734

I’m the newfag who started for Lyney and in the 20th roll I managed to scrape up from exploring I got him! I’m so happy! This feels like a blessed roll with Bennett and Lynette coming along too. Now I’ll just focus on comfy exploring with my new boys
! That's an extremely lucky pull, Bennett works great in almost any team ever.

Anons who finished Melusine's quests: how did you tolerate the same animations everytime the say a sentence over and over again? Those arm movements are so clunky it's distracting.
This might the first quest ever I had auto play on and they're still going kek.
I pray they don't make any appearances in the future. Please.
>>316907One killed the others father and they barely have a friendly interaction
but lets ship them cause their colors contrast…>>316930
They don't bother me, but I'm probably reading through the text fast enough that I'm not really looking at the models that closely.
I haven't finished the whole chains, probably. But I think the world quests were more interesting than the Archon quests again. It's all so mysterious. I got excited when those names from the investigation journal showed up again.>>316280>monster that was gonna devour the world
Hmm, maybe if we end up agreeing with our sibling that the gods should be destroyed?
I just don't have yuri goggles on. They're obviously not enemies anymore, but it's far from lover potential.
But I don't ship anybody in this game. It's all too shallow.
Nta I know Navia invited her to for a meal or something and they made up
but I still think Navia is too good for her until they give her time on screen or a personality. So far Clorinde has the most no-personality personality in this game and the only thing she has is that neat action cutscene and that she's a great duelist. Oh and breasts that are visible from her shirt kek
I know they're this region's yuri ship and their color/style fit, but I saw more chemistry from EiMiko and Imho I barely see any chemistry from them except from their fanarts.
Sure hope they don't screw up Wriothesley's and Neuvilette's interactions. They don't have to make it fujo-baitey but just add a little of chemistry, you know?

During Act 2 I kept screaming 'who caaaares' in my brain for the whole thing lol
Act 1 was great with its twins reveal and dark stuff but 2 would fit for long side quest than Archon.>spoiler
I pray this is how things will be, really need prisoner-kun to carry the act if Fontaine characters are too boring.
You’re kidding uuugh. >>317082
Exactly. Navia crying twice
(simultaneously with her ridiculous star in her eyes) wasn’t as emotional as mihoyo thought. And the npc villain
was so fucking boring.
>>317219>Also wiki diving again and realized the stuff about the Hydro dragon being reborn in a human form was said back with Enkanomiya
Correct, and with Kokomi knowing about Enkanomiya, her constellation being "sleeping dragoness", and her talking about her fate as a priestess because of the blood in her veins, it has been widely believed that she’s the hydro dragon. However, with recent additions neuvillette
, she most likely isn’t or it’s retconned. Aside from the plot holes I don’t mind if she isn’t tbh, it’s funny seeing kokomi-moids seething about kokoshit still being written poorly

Inside of you there are 3 wolves…
I feel like the shit anons say here isn’t the same level as YouTube or Reddit at all. Shit like "Lyney is made for men!!1" is just some zoomer who spends too much time on twitter, completely oblivious to women’s anime media. Shimono hiro commonly voices characters like Lyney, and it’s always for female otaku audiences. Same for Lyney’s garters. Kuroshitsuji was never for a male audience and that’s exactly the look Lyney has. So I just take it as a newfag being less knowledgeable about women’s otaku culture and ignore it.
While Reddit and YouTube genuinely ruins the game. Either you have 14 year olds screeching about something "problematic
" about the male characters or you have 30+ year old men screeching about their genshin porn.
Reddit is full of coomers but people itt are just way too negative for this thread to be fun to read. It makes me needlessly negative too. Honestly this might be a lolcow problem on the whole kek.
Main genshin reddit is impossible to use but I check the leak one compulsively and it's a bit better.

>>317329>women’s anime media
I think anons itt think that is only made of yaoi and romance, unless it's an exact replica of these two style then it's for moids.
Also you're on point with the Kuroshitsuji sampling, I feel every Genshin character has to remind me of something kek.
If anyone here played FFXII; does Melusine's hidden village thing remind them of Eryut village? Them being all girls, kind of furry, hidden village, few million years old… etc.

I have no strong feelings about Lyney and no desire to get dragged into this retarded debate, but saying he looks more Kuroshit than coomer is a lie. You could blame it on Genshin's design principles and art style cursing some characters with an inherent trashy, porny look, but Freminet looks more like a Kuroshit than Lyney and his exposed armpit romper. His base design is already weird then you have sexy elements on an orphan child character and the same moeshit face as every other Genshin to top it all off, that's what makes him look coomer. He looks more like a deviantart nekopara edit in a flat modern anime style.>>317382
Unironically go back to reddit? Kek

I don’t agree. Your pic isn’t like Lyney at all. Pic related is my compilation of things that has a female audience and are styled as Lyney. Instead of going back and forth I’m just trying to end this discussion with some proof of what some anons and I are talking about.
First of all, Ciel, Alois and Yana Toboso characters in general, are styled like Lyney and are made for a female audience. Doesn’t mean you have to be attracted to it, but the fact that it’s made for women and has a massive female fanbase especially in Japan is a fact. The bottom row might be unfamiliar to some but oldfags who have been into Japanese subcultures might recognize it. Visual kei being a style where the musicians dress like the two on the bottom right. Try finding a single male in those audiences during concerts, it’s even a running joke amongst the band members that men don’t come. The fangirls even lost their shit screaming when the dude in purple wore shorts and garters again at a concert after he had previously stopped for awhile. So yes, some girls like it, doesn’t make you a moid. Ouji (meaning prince) style is another obvious reference, where both shorts, top hats and garters are a common thing for either the Lolita girls to dress their boyfriends in or for masculine girls to crossdress in. Once again, made for a female audience since I know that the outfit in pic related was in KERA Magazine, a women’s alt fashion magazine. So even if you
are not attracted to it or you
don’t think that it was made with women in mind, there’s plenty of nods and references to characters and styles for female audiences that are as clear as day.
Nobody has been saying that Wriothesley was for men, the recent discussion about him was that the "scary daddy" gap moe trope was boring and overused.>>317392
That looks nothing like Lyney, what the fuck are you on about? He's an ouji style inspired character and that's 100% a female aesthetic.
File: 1692943047902.png (1.87 MB, 1080x2160, Lyney_Card.png)
Wow, what a wall of text. What gave you the idea that you're the only nonnie
who knows what Vkei is like we didn't used to have an active Yoshiki punching bag Vkei thread here? Lyney looks closer to Nekopara and other things that sport a similar frilly goffik anime aesthetic but feel off because of the moid's touch. His design lacks the level of detail, style, and cohesion your examples have, instead it sports awkward pandering details that appeal more to trapfags tastes than women who are happily skipping him for Burqakun. It's not the thigh garters and bootyshorts, it's them paired with the dumb open backed skin tight romper and moe sameface. Like when a male coomer designs a lolita character, you can sense it. Mihoyo is a heavily a male dominated company, that's all there is to it.
Sorry but I agree with >>317434
. Yana Toboso would not have created a design as utterly swagless as Lyney's. The base for something that could have been made by her ilk is there, but it falls short of ornate beauty because men don't care about that, they just want the coomer trapshit he delivers as-is. You can also tell this from his posing and expressions in most official content compared to thr examples you yourself provided. It's all the usual trapshit.
Based anon, thank you. Lyney isn't Vkei at all
either, at best he looks like he's about to chime in with a haven't you people ever heard of.
Anon was literally saying he was made with men in mind >>315849
and that he's bara (character made for male gays) >>315877
But it doesn't matter because its retarded sperging

and youre both retarded. He flirts with the traveler in the most gentlemanly female fantasy way possible and your brains filled with porn addicted male takes on anime can't even see that he's the epitome of that female gaze stuff you're trying to say he isn't made with
Stop please no one cares about your hateboner for random characters.>>317382
Unironically the reddit genshin leaks is the best moderated and terfy one (troon headcanons get down voted to hell) or you could just search up fanart on twitter or search up local fb groups. I'm in one fb group and it's a hilarious mix of old normies and no-life shut ins but there isn't much interesting discussion. None one of these is very good but I haven't searched that much because I have a positive mini-community with my irl friends.

Nona I love you for bringing back some Vkei memories and I'd like to add to add the Cabaret's theme is also there plus the ouji thing but the post you're replying is bait.
I'm %100 sure it's Cockroach Zhongli-chan
I'll be the one that says this: whether it's %100 made for men or not, if you, a nona wants it then it's made for you period. Don't get this negative feeling that it has been sullied because scrotes like it, scrotes like everything they don't really have any standards so don't give their "taste" the weight it never had.

This didn't need to be 4 separate posts, nony… But you referring to a 90% male subreddit as "terfy" sent my sides into orbit, here is your reddit gold for the irl kek(infighting)
I just stick to my friend group's chats and only lurk leak websites. I get being disappointed at some things or disliking a story chapter Inazuma
but people who have played the game for 3 years and only complain about it make me wonder how brain damaged you have to be to not just, you know, play something else instead. At this point you would think they kind of learned that the game isn't to their liking and never will be. They just seem to be addicted to negativity since even when they migrated to HSR they still kept whining just the same. >>317474
God read the room and fuck off, nobody here wants to hear your retarded opinions. Sorry not every woman likes only shirtless coal miner daddies or whatever you see most fit for a based radfem farmer queen but take your autism elsewhere.
Why should it? They're irrational psychos who sperg out on a dime. Lyney's like a fraction as appealing to women as the characters they say they don't hate, they don't make sense. You shouldn't factor moid feelings into your opinions.>>317475

Girl see the first post I ever made about Lyney >>317392
. This isn't a conspiracy orchestrated by a Korean samefagger in womanface. I didn't see what the other anons said but I was speaking objectively on his design. Your own moid taste inferiority complex made you hallucinate the part where I told you to kys for wanting to sex up your stupid femboy shota waifu.

I really like it, it took me forever to realize I can counter attack with the crab skill after getting beaten up by the yellow turrets. Wish we had more stamina though
One thing Fontaine destroyed for me is swimming any where else; since you can't drown in Fontaine, I keep swimming in other places thinking it's the same and only when it's too late my stamina runs out and my bursts are gone.

The symbol of romance and passion, through the same magic trick where Cesar gave the flower to his wife.. Are we getting married kek? I play as Aether and Lyney places the rose on his chest while Lumine gets it on her neck/scarf. Thought that was funny, hoyo avoided making Lyney placing a flower on her tits

Ikr? I keep going on and out with most of my characters lol
spergchan, what is
Apparently, someone from China was able to hack the game and turn some of the objects into Bloom cores. By using Kaveh's skill, he can make them explode and dissapear. Forever.
Apparently, people say it's just on the Chinese server, so I think you should be fine? Either way, mihoyo will probably release a patch soon to fix that bug and ban the hacker or anyone that tries to mimic him.
This kinda reminds me of when people were getting their accounts stolen en masse during 1.0/1.1 and everyone was freaking out, saying Russian hackers would ask to coop with you and steal your account that way or some shit. Good times. I was retarded and fell for that shill. I spent a long time playing by myself in the beginning, because I was scared of le hackers

I feel weird not liking Neuvillete, like he does look nice and all but after wanderer I feel drained whenever I see the color blue on alot of characters. His design is too covered for my liking and his gameplay was too boring, the only cool thing was his burst/splash but I'm a husbando collector and I feel I'm betraying that title when I'm %99 skipping him lol
Anyway the reason for that intro is to ask Nonnies who are excited for him, what do you like about him? I need to find a reason to stay true to my title
I wasn't gonna roll because I thought he might be a villain, but I guess not.
So far I like him slightly better then Ayato, and I'm never rolling for Childe, so he'd be another hydro. Might just try him out and decide then.>>318280>cries in his office
Where's this from?
File: 1693276353275.png (2.58 MB, 1822x913, F4N8InAacAEKCEQ.png)
I like his characterization and love his hair. However, his outfit has too much dark blue. Kind of the same reason that I didn't pull for Ayato, except his outfit had too much white. Wish they could have him and Ayato swap and combine some pieces from each others closet.
I often see those 'guys i made this design better' and it's always so ugly>>318314
Oh no geo main
Nta but oh my god it makes so much sense with how many times they mentioned rainy weather, thought it was raining because the subject was sad like in anime lmao
Now his and Fremmy's fanarts are extra cute.
That definitely a cute.
I'm less concerned with muh meta and muh damage and muh redditoids' opinions of these on field dps males and more concerned with how all but 3 males since the end of 2021 have been on field dps. You can't practically use more than one of them in each team, half use the same old supports.

I wanted to be the sexy onee-san all along (I'm not into shota but i want to be an older sister figure/gf and have a cute younger bf) and that's why oneeshota made me seethe like crazy, I was just mad jealous that this will never happen to me irl. A bit embarrassed to admit it, hope you guys forgive me for my sperging. Here's some haikaveh
Looks like Wriothesley beat standard allegations, according to leakers there won't be any standard characters in this patch. Uncle Chicken was the one who initially spread the standard rumors and he took it back too. We'll see, I won't celebrate yet.>>318265
Honestly seeing his design as a vampire lord or something like anon upthread suggested made me like it a bit more. His voice in JP still makes me cringe though. And I like Wario because I like wolves and edgelords. I'll wait to judge their animations until after they are released because they tend to change a lot.>>318368
Kek I remember redditors and farmers doom posting about Alhaitham. He ended up being one of the best characters in game.

I doubt they would throw the first cryo catalyst to standard banner? Geo is the element that's lacking in standard banner not cryo, we have Qiqi as cryo>farmers doom posting about Alhaitham.
Remember how they nerfed his damage by alot? Iirc the doomposting was because they thought they nerfed him because they didn't want a guy to be better than their waifus, though lo and behold he is stronger, which really makes me think how op was he?

It is definitely true, even aside from the crying rain stuff
that we are not 100% sure about yet (although it is heavily implied) he has a much more gentle personality than Zhongli. This is a small conversational spoiler from act 1: Neuvillette politely apologizing and trying to talk to us when he heard Paimon whispering that he was awkward
Truly showed how cute he is. You should definitely play the archon quest cause there are plenty of those small moments where you notice how kind he is.
File: 1693385755923.jpeg (210.83 KB, 1695x1395, IMG_2296.jpeg)
Yeah and his numbers aren't that bad either. Still funny how he went from physical polearm standard Varka to cryo catalyst limited Wriothesley. More twists then when we all believed leaker that Arlecchino dies.

Tighnari is in standard banner and hes a great dps and the best standard imo, so its not really a testament that Wrio is a bad character if he's throw there now if Tighnari can come home I would be happy but nooo keep giving me Keqing, Genshin
Also! I told my friend I'm definitely getting Wrio and she said "nice! I'll boost you with my Shenhe!">Mfw Shenhe is the only Cryo support that exists
Hope they release a Cryo Gorou asap.
That spoiler…I have to have him! It's been over a year since I last bought a welkin pass but here we are. It's love lol
I couldn't force an emotional connection with Zhongli and Ayato despite having them forever, but it looks like there's finally a tall male for me. >>318388
I just finished Sumeru's archon quest and will be skipping the leftover world quests so I can take my happy ass over to Fontaine. Can't wait!

said Cyno sucks as an overworld unit but he's really strong in domains and abyss. But I can agree that his issue is that his burst is so long that it outlasts supports and pure electro doesn't really work in the game at the moment. His burst also has an energy cost of 80 which is pretty high for someone who's so burst reliant so I rarely really use him, he has great potential and his burst is easy to use but the game just doesn't have any viable supports for him at the moment. Hopefully they'll add more in the future and bring him back to meta.
File: 1693411362298.jpg (2.18 MB, 1821x2732, 6rd3EGX.jpg)
I don't have him but someone made a video showing that EM Kuki does more damage than him in the same team >>318579>Itto is like a gorilla
Well he is one (affectionately), his burst damage scales from his defense which means you have to prioritize it when building his artifacts and with Gorou's buffs you couldn't knock him down if you tried. If I had to pick between Zhongli and Albedo I'd take Zhongli no questions asked but you can substitute either for his composition if you lack either, Gorou is the only necessary geo unit.>>318583
Huh? What are you addressing here exactly?

I don't regret Cyno. One of the units I've C6ed. I use him in Abyss all the time though like other anons said he's not great in the overworld.>>318574
You don't need to run two electros if you have enough ER in your artifacts. I run him with double dendro.

Ikr. The artist draws great butts
Sorry for the confusion, nonna. By whatever Ayato's doing, I meant whatever tf his personality is supposed to be. I legit can't get a read on him except sly yet dutiful young master. I know he has a dark backstory with having to raise his sister and protect their clan from a young age, but the personality it formed is totally lost to me. Manipulative, 3 steps ahead, young masters with fake smiles are boring to me even if he may have a good reason to be the way he is.
He's been a strong part of my team but I don't really like the guy kek
File: 1693486619309.jpg (83.42 KB, 850x438, __yae_miko_kamisato_ayaka_kami…)
I would've loved Ayato if they concentrated on his pranking side (giving weird drinks to Thoma) a little bit more, or anything that gives him a memorable personality.
Source is trust me bro but from fanarts to chats I feel he is the least popular Husbando by husbando lovers, the only time I see him mentioned now is in Ayathoma art.
The writers also don't seem to know what his personality is supposed to be. I think they were trying to give him gap moe with his boba tea BS and making him a bad cook who secretly buys his speciality dish from a local restaurant, yet at the same time he's supposed to be a morally gray work slave. It doesn't give him depth, it comes across as clumsy writing to me. >>318733
Yep, AyaThoma and his voice actor are the only reasons many people like him. But to be fair he's apparently a lot more popular in Japan.
Other than his head his design is so stiff and ugly, at least Neuvillette's suit has pretty design elements and flows very prettily.
File: 1693489771675.jpg (116.5 KB, 750x1000, uUuwT7l.jpg)
I keep forgetting Ayato exists even though I think he's one of the prettiest characters in the game and I love his design, he's one of the few characters where I can tell 90% of his clothing belongs to the same person. I don't know what would make him more compelling, a trickster personality could fall flat since there aren't many moments to make it natural in his story and event appearance. He's the workaholic waifu trope except male and he doesn't blush and giggle at (y/n).
Will he and Zhongli share the 5 rate-up or are they on separate banners and the potential spook is just a standard 5
If you have a an hp built Layla she can be a good substitute for Zhongli, but he is the best shielder and will probably get a rerun in a year kek
Childe's national team is still used beating hardest abyss but needs alot of prep, especially for your Xiangling.
Wrio is Wanderer tier
Idk about Neuvillete kek
Venti is really good in over world and small fries but not so much in damage, Kazuha took that from him.
Actually can you show what characters you have?
File: 1693496529285.jpeg (241.74 KB, 1200x1200, IMG_1439.jpeg)
>>318733>least popular Husbando
He tops popularity rankings in Japan. They seem to understand his personality more than the western fandom. Gap moe of being ufufufu~ and then serious/dutiful master manipulator. I’ll do a mini art dump that shows his gap moe personality, maybe that would give some clarity on his personality type?
Personally I think as a husbando that personality type isn’t ideal but in a fujo ship he’s perfect, which is why they pushed him with Thoma.
File: 1693496695365.jpeg (78.97 KB, 526x807, IMG_1443.jpeg)
Maybe I should also clarify that I’m posting pics of his personality for this nona who was a bit confused by it >>318723
File: 1693496789344.jpeg (308.67 KB, 2000x1100, IMG_1441.jpeg)
Definitely! I think the same way, I kinda need more story relevance while Japanese audiences knew the second they saw him speak of how he is
File: 1693496871850.jpeg (200.57 KB, 964x1200, IMG_1446.jpeg)

I don't really know what your AR or characters for best incoming characters but if you're thinking about getting Zhongli then do 'cause it will probably a long while before he gets a rerun.
Thanks for being polite and trying to feed me, nona but it shows that hy couldn't write his story and personality well enough if I have to get a feel for him through fanart. I like how he's portrayed in his art and the AyaThoma stuff but when I see him in game it's crickets lol>>318733
You made me realize I don't really see a lot of western Ayato wives.>>318735>>318736
Imo, the attempt at gap moe flopped. The boba and bad cooking combined with paperwork ufufufu just didn't gel well. I'm glad that there are others who like him, though. It just makes me realize that I'm drawn to the exact opposite of him and he's nice to be set in your type.

New Lyney art too. His expression, the background, the card. Didn’t see any changes to Freminet and Lynette.
Yeah they just have the background changed >>319045
It's not a spoiler at all though, we knew they were related to the fatui since the teaser video lol Even if it was a spoiler, what were they supposed to do, wait till every single player gets to the end of it to release it? I'd rather some inactive players get spoilers to a detail that's minor in the long run than the game introducing the characters very shallowly just to make one scene in the first part of a quest stand out in game.>>319046
We probably are, Arlecchino seems to want Lyney to take over so they must be important parts of her plan.

So what do u think of Fontaine and its world design nonas? I feel like it looks like a Mondstadt extension. Pretty but feels very small since the water exploration is lackluster. Like a new Dragonspine rather than a new region. Sumeru in 3.0 felt way more impactful.
File: 1693861690810.jpg (632.76 KB, 1705x2719, 88f2acae907406334cfe9c72f04c87…)
Agreed about it being Mondstadt+ and the exploring is kind of minimal compared to Sumeru but one thing it has above Sumeru is the story. Could be because I'm biased towards Fatui but I wasn't looking forward towards the story in sumeru like that, but this whole house of hearth and potential dark themes is a breath of fresh air imho.

omg im the anon who wanted Childe but pulled Lyney and had 0 wishes and no guaranteed left for Childe. After intense primo farming I got 60 wishes. Pulled on the Childe banner, got him in 14 pulls!! Never been this lucky I could cry right now!
Also nonas who gets my 5-star Aqua weapon if I run the abyss with Childe on one side and Lyney on the other? Any 4-star alternative that is actually good for one of them?
I pulled for Freminet and got Mona at pity 25. Wish I got Zhongli since I still don't have him but at least I have guaranteed Wrio now. I don't really care for Mona but at least she moves fast and has pretty attacks and at least she wasn't another Keqing.
I got Freminet too. I'll snatch Zhongli and Tartaglia on their next reruns.

At least you got Freminet! Mona is not the absolute worst out of the standard characters either. >>319868
Hopefully you get Freminet randomly on the Neuvillette banner then! Also, I did hear a rumor about a potential free Freminet kind of like how they gave us a free Dori.

I'm currently testing Freminet, and he's like…really fun? Him and XQ with Rosaria (crit rate and battery) with Fischl (super conduct) make such a fun team. I'll try mono cryo with Chong/Rosa/Kazuha later too.
This is by the way the most un-sexy weapon banner ever kek
I really want Neuvillete, Wriothesly, Furina (has to be good hydro applier) and Arlecchino. Who do you nonnies think will get the nearest rerun?
I would say Lyney gets the Aqua since it's second BiS and he's the only damage dealer but Hamayumi can also work if you forget about bursting or prototype crescent if you know where weak points are at.
As for Childe he can use rust or the stringless.>>319922
I'm a masochist nona, I love getting alot of characters and thinking about the fastest way to optimize them. But ai agree about using 2 teams, I still use Childe national and Alhaithem hyperbloom.
>>319923>stringless on childe
Stringless' passive only works for the first changing stance hit on melee, not his attacks after that. Also EM stat only helps his burst in national and ideally you would do his ranged burst unless you're running nuke childe so practically it's a bit bad on him. Not unusable though>>319865
Lyney should get it because it increases his damage too much to pass on the chance. Childe can get Viridescent Hunt or Rust, but tbh any ATK% 4* weapon wouldn't be too bad on him if you don't have any crit weapons. Also they share their best team members, so can you tell us your teams for both and also your bow weapons to give better advice?

>>319933>Also they share their best team members
Thanks to all anons for the weapon help, I started building my rust, and wow im an actual retard. Thanks to you anon it just hit me that my Lyney team is Childe international kek. Yeah no abyss for Lyney then. Why did I not realize this kek
Why the hell is in-game enemy radar or whatever it's called is so bad? I tried using it to find Samurais in Inazuma for Scara talent and it doesn't show all of them, I even tried other enemies, like call this first world problems but I really don't want to use interactive map while playing when we supposedly have this feature. Thanks for letting me reee>>319942

On a new episode of the sister game having everything genshin players ask for: the resin cap is increased, if the resin goes over the limit it keeps generating and turning into a version you can turn back into resin whenever you want to use it, there's way too much endgame content for a game you put on autoplay. I don't understand what game has that ours doesn't nonnies. Are we adopted?
File: 1694071783254.jpg (152.99 KB, 850x1202, __xinyan_genshin_impact_drawn_…)
Nona, have you played HSR? It's shit, period. I love turn based games and they failed to add actual commands when they decided to be "inspired" by persona.
Imagine not having guard or item jfc.>high resin cap, mats always available, endgame…etc.
If you played it you know they better add these things otherwise no one would fucking play it, thr dread of waiting with that gameplay? Hell no. They took all the feedback they got from genshin and threw it there because the game is sooo goddamn bad they have to add so many things to make it playable. Resin caps, in general are there to get you to open your game to play it, its why almost all gacha games have them and end game content? You mean harder and harder abyss? No thank you kek.
The only good endgame content they could add to the game is floor 10-11 difficulty runs that awards 5-star artifacts without using any resin.>Inb4 bootlicking Genshin
I just know what genshin is now and what it'll be; the same. Hoyo were pissed off people were complaining about abyss and I don't know if anyone remembers how there was a meltdown about it? They said they'll take endgame "content" and add to other games like HSR and ZZZ because Genshin is too popular world wide and too many "casual" gamers play it and they want an """anxiety free""" gameplay basically means we're getting shit kek. So the only way to enjoy Genshin is collecting your fave characters, explore, do battles here and there, bit of Abyss and see where the story goes.
I'm so sorry for the amount of quotation marks lmao.

Neuvillete and Wriothesly's namecards
There's nothing wrong with wanting casual, anxiety free games.
Games should be fun and not stressful.
There's plenty of hardcore difficult games out there if you like a challenge.
Yeah very autistic. >>320096
I like them! More effort than what they put into Wanderer’s namecard for sure

No one said anything about casual gaming though? This was HYV's excuse for not adding endgame in Genshin
Lmfao it was long af, thanks for reading tho
I found hsr really boring too, I don't think it's a very good game compared to others in that genre.
I've been playing genshin for around a year and still have so much to do. Still have most of Inazuma and Sumeru left. I don't get wanting so much endgame content and people complaining genshin doesn't provide enough content, I wonder how much do these people play? It must be hours and hours daily. For me it seems there is too much to do and I get pretty overwhelmed. I am glad to do dailies and current events for the primos plus an hour of some story quest or exploration which gets me to almost two hours almost daily. I guess some could be day 1 players and others teenagers with no job and no serious need to study that do have more time to put into it. Wish that were me ngl
I fully agree that HSR is much shittier of a game because it has way less content than Genshin, no exploration, the worst turn based combat system I've seen and even uglier female characters but I would kill for that resin cap increase and Simulated Universe in Genshin. I personally don't like playing Abyss because there just isn't anything in it for me except a few primos, the enemies in Simulated Universes at least give me drops. That said I still prefer Genshin being a casual experience that's more driven by the story, quests, events and exploration than autistic number crunching. >>320155
I don't get it either, I've been playing since day 1 myself and I still haven't 100%'d every map and have unfinished world quests despite playing daily. The people I know who complain about the lack of content literally play for hours a day which is senseless to me, I have other things to do than sit there wasting time on one vidya endlessly.

Hoyo’s official genshin taobao store dropped Scara clothes. I wonder if the model is supposed to look like him. It’s so hard to know what the NPCs mean when they say he looks especially beautiful, since all characters look pretty. So I’m guessing he’s supposed to have a doll-like beauty like the model in pic related. Cute.
Second, was there rage in China because of this? Did the moids there threaten the model or taobao?

Since we are only two nations away from the reveal, how do you think Genshin will end? Based on the lore we have thus far and what we know/see of Asmoday/Unknown God/Sustainer of Heavenly Principles?
Just from pic related we can assume our loading screen is Celestia and Asmoday protects the rules of Celestia.

Fixed spelling kek
I'm more interested in how Genshin will carry on after Celestia and the final reveal. If memory serves their initial plan was 5 years but after huge profit made they changed it to 10 years. Will it be just events and reruns or will they stretch Archon and Celestia stuff

You will need a shopping service that buys it for you, and ships it to your country. There are plenty online. Look up "taobao shopping service" and find some reviews. This is what j-fashion anons have done for decades. >>320496
Yeah I think so too. My theory is that the traveler will try to destroy Celestia, like the burning structures in the choose your twin cutscene, and the loop/samsara of Teyvat will be revealed. If hoyo wants to be annoying, this means that we will have a few more years in the loop before the game actually ends and the god is defeated.

You would think a company that likes to sell waifu/husbando experience would put couple of skins each patch but for some reason, barely.
Lack of gifting option also confuses me too? Sure it'll cause e-begging in co-op and such but it would also bring some profit since 3rd party websites do it and Razer gold too iirc.

Dori is probably my most hated character in all of Genshin. She has an ugly, orientalist design, she's irrelevant to the plot, she's unusable when it comes to gameplay and worst of all she's actually an adult who looks like a loli for some reason. I even prefer retards like Ei over her because she at least doesn't pander to pedophiles.
This is so stupid, all of sumeru is oritentalist. In fact, the mere existence of sumeru, a mix of all brown people’s culture, is an orientalist creation in itself. As a middle easterners I couldn’t care less about it. Dori is an annoying loli but her design being orientalist isn’t a valid
critique of only her specifically.
File: 1694522762095.jpg (2.02 MB, 1728x1389, vHsBshi.jpg)
I love Dori cause she's based on the stereotype of my people scamming foreigners and I think merchants that scam rich foreigners are based. People who complain about meh orientalist design are retards cause no one cares when it's done to the west. Also anon calling middle easterners brown is also a retard. Keep these "discussions" on twitter
