What have you been enjoying in the 4.4 patch? We've had:
>Chenyu Vale area added including lots of new world quests, new wildlife, a couple of new enemies
>Xianyun and Gaming as new playables
>New skins for Shenhe, Ganyu and Xingqiu
>Xianyun's story quest
>Lantern Rite quest and event
>Food event happening right now
>The recent battle event with trial characters
>New TCG cards, including sayu, thoma, cryo cube, the electro seahorse, and action cards like jeht
>Xiao and Yae re-run
And some QoL stuff in picrel

I pulled Xianyun and have been enjoying her a lot. She breathed some new life into some characters in my roster I'd been neglecting or added more team variety for them, like Navia and Diluc. She's been a delight for traversing through Chenyu Vale with because of her jumping and I like using characters that are somewhat "canon" to explore new areas with. I do however use a mod to alter her a bit because her default is a bit much for me (https://gamebanana.com/mods/493134). I have been slowly moving through the Vale every day until I accrue enough encounter points, so I haven't done a lot of the quests yet. Very pretty scenery as I expected.
I found the lantern rite quest pretty touching overall and appreciated the focus on family bonds, even if your family isn't blood-related. The scene between Shenhe, Xianyun, Yip Tak and Gaming sitting at the tables was very amusing. The hug at the end between Gaming and Yip Tak was sweet.
Sayu has been really fun in the TCG but I'm not sure what the new meta decks coming out on top are. I see a lot of people using Jeht now when I match with others. I prefer playing the "drafting" mode where you each have to choose three character cards from a random pool because it's refreshing not facing off against sweaty tryhard decks all the time.
The recent battle event was interesting. It used your character cons but not your weapons or artifacts and the character pools on some days were strange. I ended up with some unusual teams sometimes but still cleared it quite easily on the hardest difficulty. I wonder what the general player base experience was with it, if they found it too challenging? It makes me wonder if the devs are experimenting with making a pseudo rogue-lite mode.

That's such a boring picture of a lately irrelevant character. Official pictures are always boring and there were already suggested and liked ones. I'm convinced it's that one retard that doesn't want women in the op that pulled a random unrelated picture to rush the thread so we can't put Arlecchino again. It's either uninspired official picture to avoid cool female character art or coomer fanart sneak now in this thread.

I'm building Ga Ming and enjoying playing him, though he seems to get critically low on hp real fast. It's probably skill issue. Lantern Rite's story was pretty good this year, you can see massive improvement in the pre-rendered cutscenes from the devs over time. They did a good job incorporating Ga Ming's preexisting animations into his long dance.
The combat event was interesting, but needs some polish. The pre-made builds were appallingly bad, like laughably so. The Furina had something atrocious like 45% crit rate and 90% crit damage, anyone who ran the domain for a week could probably do better. I don't think Nilou was an appropriate character in the character pool either when the game immediately proceeded to make it near impossible to use her core mechanic by dumping electro characters on you. Overall just needed slightly better gearing on the trial characters for a smoother experience.

I ended up with C6 Gaming rolling for Xianyun and need to get around to building him. His normals felt weird to me so I put him on the backburner. His kit doesn't seem as straight-forward to me as most others either when it comes to optimal rotation. I noticed a lot of HP drain in his kit but he only has this very small way to get HP back, so probably not a skill issue on your part but more of a team build issue.
>After Bestial Ascent's Plunging Attack: Charmed Cloudstrider hits an opponent, Gaming will regain 1.5% of his Max HP once every 0.2s for 0.8s.
He definitely seems like he needs a healer with him, purposefully made so players want Xianyun with him.
It's funny I've seen some other people complain about the bad gearing too. I didn't even bother checking the gear at all but still found it pretty easy to clear on pro, even with not knowing how to optimally use some of the carries. The enemy HP felt really low. The one build issue that really stuck out to me was not having nearly enough ER on Xiangling for one stage. It took forever to get her burst back.
I think for the Nilou one on the last day that they really wanted you to bloom on the first two stage parts because the enemies spawned far closer together on those than the latter two. When I tried to avoid using Nilou my first time through, I ran into the issue of there not being enough electro characters. Re-doing it with her made those two parts explode quickly. It was the only one I had to re-do.

What do anons use to clear the Abyss? Curious as to who people main. I switch it up but I always try to use a Cyno team with Baizhu and Nahida and mono Geo whenever possible (sadly not very possible as of late). This time I did a plunge Kazuha team for the lulz then a Wriothesley first half alongside Cyno second half. I could have used Neuvillette but that would have been zero effort, he melts everything so fast.

I'm still trying for Project Baby. It's the last one the game has to give me.

No. 358512

I always have an alhaitham team on one side. It will be some mix of nahida, yaoyao, baizhu, furina, xingqiu, fischl, yae, raiden or kuki.
On the other side is usually whatever fits best to counter the enemies or whoever I got recently that I want to use. I picked up xianyun and navia on their banners, so I've been using them. Otherwise, it'll usually be another dendro team, either a hyperbloom team, a thoma burgeon team or a tighnari spread team.

Okay so pic relateed is t pyro archon concept design. Which ofcourse can be changed a lot (see the old skirk and clorinde concept arts). However if you compare it to Nahida another archon concept arts, her color design didn't change at all. So I'm afraid we might be stuck with this color pallet

i pretty much always use alhaitham on one side and neuvilette on the other. Before neuv i used childe. We really need some male electro off field characters, i want to try and use teams with only male characters

as comparison this is leaked nahida concept designs, again of course the pyro archon design can change, but because it won't take that long before Natlan is coming. I dont think they will change like big things. Not gonna lie im kinda sad how her design looks more Fontaine, i was hoping that we wouldnt get yet another european inspired country. Since we will also be getting Snezhnaya which is also very much eu. I think Natlan will be like Sumeru, so the educated and more civilised people will all be white and more european styled, and the people in the desert will be darker.

No. 358533

Tbf she's the fire god so it makes sense red and orange/yellow will be her main colours. Her aesthetic is what I was expecting from Fontaine at the beginning so I'd be happy to see a nomadic circus concept but if the nomadic tribes are that then where's the African inspiration going to be?
>the educated and more civilised people will all be white and more european styled, and the people in the desert will be darker
I hope they don't pull this shit again. I'm taking an unhealthy dose of copium hoping for the archon to change to having dark skin already. I thought the idea was that the entire nation is made of independent tribes anyway, so we'll have a big "civilized" city again? Guess they have to put in a giant tree somewhere.

No. 358534

It's quite frankly hideous and I barely see any Spanish influence here at all. Why is it so white with barely any red or orange besides her hair? If she's supposed to be inspired by Matadors where's the elegant suit and cape? If she's supposed to be inspired by Carnivale where's the bright flamboyant feathered costume? Really hoping for a palette overhaul as unlikely as one is. Also those detached sleeves need to go burn in a fire, they make every design a thousand times more retarded for no reason.

idk i at first thought it more of an italien inspo with like venetian carnival but a lot less cooler.

There are a few big tribes, so i expect the bigger tribes to be more civilized actually have buildings instead of tents ect. I don't see how this is otherwise will go, based on the design of the archon vs the design of a natlan character. You can see pic related actually has tribal inspiration, while the archon looks very different and more so like she is from fontaine. Maybe the story is that the pyro archon is actually not from natlan?

Quite a few of the concept arts have interesting ideas imo and you can tell most of the artists wanted Nahida to be at least mostly clothed. The girl with the eye on her chest looks really cute and foresty. If the butterfly had more clothes she'd be neat. Bottom left obviously became the basis for Lord Rukkhadevata (who has a much stronger design than Nahida). But then there's the coomershit on the right and you can tell no character is safe from becoming complete slop.

I can't bring myself to get too worked up about the design either way until I see the final design and see it in 3D. For example, I liked Chevreuse's design far more in the 2D than how her model ended up looking. A character's personality can really sell a design for me, too. [spoiler]I like her big red diluc eyes. I am not a fan of the pearls, mask color or the purple hair vents. lol at at least one leaker saying the stripes are meant to be like a carnival tent.

I think people were misled by just seeing the term "African inspiration" when it was specifically "west African" (probably specifically Morocco) in addition to Spain and Latin America. West Africa is more influenced by Andalusian and Arab cultures than Eastern or Central African ones so I don't know why they act so surprised Natlan isn't turning out to be more like Sub-Saharan Africa.

That said, her being white skinned and wearing a spaniard-inspired outfit from colonial times really underlines the role of archons as colonizers kek.

No. 358917

What? Plenty of East African countries are heavily influenced by Arab culture

No. 358964

Are you thinking about North Africa like Libya and Egypt because East Africa consists of Ethiopia, Somalia, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania which aren't really that Arab influenced compared to North/West Africa. Bottom line Natlan was always implied to be more South American/Mesoamerican including using the names from the Maya Hero Twins tales and the entire region's name being an Aztec word, people just got so hung up on that one mention of West Africa that now they're disappointed beyond repair that it's not full on African themed due to building up things that were never going to happen.

I don't know if they're really going for the colonizer narrative seeing how she's wearing a dress more inspired by Spanish royalty kek but I want to give them the benefit of the doubt. Initial leaks are saying that the pyro archon isn't the main character of the story but instead there's some male character who's supposedly going to be the hero. I also have a feeling that we're going to turn against the archons after learning about the sovereigns in Fontaine and other leaks saying that Venti will be relevant in Natlan's story chapter and that there will be other sovereigns introduced. Take it with a grain of salt though.

Whenever I get annoyed at genshin's designs I remember that star rail has even shittier designs.

Idc what anyone else says, genshin got better art direction. It's not stellar cause we still get some shitty designs but >>358530 just looking at this there'a quite a lot of creativity that goes in the character creations. We do get the watered down versions, but it's an upgrade to star rail or wuthering waves.

Genshin definitely tries to be a normal live service game more than being a typical gacha though. Which is why I think it’s weird to kill the game with 3 years of the same formula and pacing.
Exactly. It’s weird to have that much filler between 4.2-4.6. I get that some anons like the previous anon I replied to above like to whiteknight this but we’re getting pure shit filler. Not even charming events like Windblume kind of filler. 4.5 even lacks that. Hangouts have lessened, reoccurring events with world building storytelling (Venti and windblume, albedo in dragonspine etc) aren’t happening, and the last Dain quest was a wet fart. The quality has gone down and the pacing has gotten worse. Time to freshen the game up a bit. At least they’ve understood that with the new permanent banner.

they're the same thing… not all lsg are gacha but all live gacha are lsg - unfinished, microtransaction laden games that drip feed new content at a snails pace

No. 359758

I agree that we should get more smaller stuff like hangouts but when compared to other lsgs Genshin still has more content overall. The big patches drop with entire new areas to explore, 1-3 new characters, main story content, character story content and a bunch of world quests combined in a single patch. If anything, these "dead" patches are good for casual players to catch up. I log in every day and I still have a bunch of shit to catch up on in my quest list. You might not like the system but Genshin is on the better side of content amount and quality, as it should given how much money they're making.

No. 360535

I have such a hard time keeping up with Star Rail solely because the female designs are so repugnant, way worse than in Genshin. In Genshin they have coomer elements but for the most part they're fairly inoffensive and mundane (sans the armpit fetish) but in Star Rail they just look ugly and porny all the time. Most of them aren't given actual clothes, you can't tell half of what the hell they're wearing but the male characters look fine so it's clearly a conscious choice. This isn't just me either because even scrotes complained about all the Xianzhou Luofu girls having lazy, patronizing designs. But that said, Wuthering Waves on the other hand has no redeemable features because both the female and male characters look like dogshit.

I guess it boils down to what aesthetics you prefer to be fair but what I'm trying to say is that personally I just like Genshin's designs the best. Actual pornified characters like Yelan, Shenhe and Xianyun happen only occasionally and aren't given very remarkable roles while in Star Rail you have to stare at Seele's and Acheron's crotches and boob windows for long parts of the story.

The only reason HSR stays in good graces is because they keep handing out free shit and as for wuwa literally everyone clowns on it everywhere and deems it a painfully subpar game with a 2edgy teenager aesthetic except the people who are desperate for a Genshin killer and will call every single new action RPG game that. Half the people who started playing HSR and bragged about how much better it was compared to Genshin hated the Xianzhou Luofu arc so much they only came back to collect a free Dr. Ratio kek. And yeah, filler patches with Genshin happen. All gacha games have dead air during some seasons.

Anon here is right. The porny characters are pretty rare all things considered. There are stupid decisions made like Jean's armpits being out when they shouldn't be but they're much less than HSR or Wuwa's.

Idk I know people who left genshin for Danheng and Sampo but not a soul who ran back to genshin afterwards. They didn't care about whatever arc because only a super tiny minority of these three games pays attention to their plots, they don't have plots as far as most players are concerned.

What bizarro world do you live in? Every Genshin player I know tried out HSR and then they all dropped it after a month. Dogshit, boring game with dogshit, boring characters. At least Genshin combat is fun compared to the shitty turnbased garbage from Star Rail.

Any thoughts? Spoilered to reduce possible seething. I didn't have the heart to make any of them handmaidens. I also wanted to focus on the reactions of female characters, but feel free to make one for the males.

No. 360817

To be honest, I would put Barbara, Nahida and Yoimiya as handmaidens.
Nilou and Amber as pure clueless normies.
Kokomi would definetly we crypto. And I like the thought of Ayaka being crypto too, lmao.
Also, I feel like Layla's sleeping personality would be a terf or easily peaked, while her regular personality is a normie or a handmaiden, lel.

No. 360818

Ayrt. I hate to admit it, but your take on the handmaidens is solid, though I do feel like Barbara could eventually become crypto from dealing with one creep too many. Can definitely also see the case for crypto Kokomi, and I love the opinion split you brought up between the two Laylas!

No. 360827

I think that Lynette should be a crypto, she dealt with ugly bastards before and in her voice lines it is obvious that she is very observational and independent. She is not an open terf because she needs to stay non-controversial for her spying job

No. 360829

samefag I also think that Yoimiya, Amber, Navia and Nilou are pure normies. Fischl would be a rabid libfem and would support troons' delusions, but one day something bad will happen and she'll peak. Sigewinne is not only a doctor but also not a human, so openly terfy. Raiden would think that it's weird but also wouldn't do anything because she is an idiot herself. And we don't know anything about Columbina, but wanderer and Tartaglia say that she is batshit insane, so I don't think she'll be a normie.

No. 360831

Oh I love that Lynette one a lot, very accurate assessment (she would've probably picked up on some terfery from Arlecchino too kek). As for your second post, I was definitely wondering where to put Fischl but I really like what you did with her, and same for Sigewinne! Regarding Columbina: I personally see her as the type to just giggle uncontrollably at the notion of troons, but I don't think she cares much about them outside of that, so I just put her down as a "normie" short of a better descriptor. Loving the inputs here.

ntayrt, but i made my original post in a rush and realize i could have been unclear: i was talking about how moidgazey the drip looks. even in comparison to her character sheet, she's depicted in a particularly coomerish and overfeminized way here, almost as if they're trying to "compensate" for her not showing skin. it's such a disservice to her character, and an additional spit in the face to those of us who wanted a less sexualized female character.

Usually its something like the big jacket is actually hanging off a character showing her pits/arms, or the pants are drawn incredibly tight, or feet are showing or something, etc. this is kinda nothing in comparison but I do understand how some nonnies feel.

Everything from that leaker has been incorrect about her so far. He said her constellation was going to be a black widow spider. He's a clown and should be ignored.
To be fair Cyno "gains" arms and a helm during his burst and that looks fine because there's the burst cutscene that gives the game time to replace the model, so she could lose the jacket in burst. I just don't really see what that would achieve, her Vision's on her jacket and that imo is a good indicator she'll probably keep it on.

Am I fucking crazy for thinking, other than her stripper heels and nails, Arlecchino isn't all that coomer? She's covered from head to toe, is wearing actual pants, and has no retarded titty cutouts or anything. She stands in that stupid as fuck pigeon toed stance and has a thigh gap, but that's because she's using the generic tall female model. It's not like she's Eula or Cloud Retainer.
Obviously she's somewhat sexualized but that's because every character in Genshin is sexualized lol. The only one I can think of who has 0 sex appeal is Neuvillette.
I don't know why anyone would think she would turn out to be a flat chested, androgynous character anyway considering she has always had a feminine face, long hair, sheer material on her chest and even lipstick on during her very first appearance in that Fatui trailer.

Sorry anon, but you need to just admit it. Your waifu is coomer trash. Even Yoimiya is more masculine and less coomerish than she is. Her entire appeal is coom. Literally every man and woman likes her specifically because she's meant to be a sexy dommy mommy trope. That's just what she is.

sorry, but lazzo did bait us. many people were expecting more, and we weren't wrong to do so. was she going to be the world's most hardcore butch? obviously not. but she did feel "more" gnc from the outset than other genshin women, and by the looks of it the art direction >>361812 wanted to go for that too. it's not unreasonable to be disappointed.

Seriously, in what way? In what way is she less sexualized than other tall females in the game? Yeah, she's not walking around in ugly lingerie like Shenhe and Yelan but even though someone like Dehya and Candace show a lot of skin they're way less sexualized than Arlecchino is. Her entire thing is sex appeal and that's why people are openly cooming to her so hard on social media, if it was just her being a badass GNC female character they wouldn't be lining up begging her to obliterate them in the QRTs of the drip marketing post in the most obscene ways possible.

I couldn't care less about what coomers think about Arlecchino, I've been daydreaming about being her right hand woman for months and I'm so happy that she'll be playable now. As long as she doesn't change her character completely I'll be happy to have her and build her to her full potential. I hope she gets more content after Fontaine as well.

People were speculating that we should be getting 2 harbingers per region from Fontaine on to make all of them playable during region expansions but I guess that won't be the case. Does anynonnie have an idea what story content we'll get after Khaenri'ah? The only other lsg I play regularly has a wider world and unlimited potential for world building but Genshin has limited map space for most nations and they limited the number of nations to 7+1 at the beginning. It seemed absurd to think about this in the beginning but it feels like Inazuma dropped yesterday, we'll get to the end so soon.

Celestia, maybe? I can't imagine us not exploring there, and possibly even things in the Abyss.

No. 362107

I feel like there's no way all of them will be made playable. Dottore is too difficult to redeem at this point and that small old guy shouldn't be made because he's ugly. If anything they'll continue with one per patch and put all the rest into Snezhnaya.
And once all regions are unlocked it should be over, they'll probably continue to make boring events for a few years and then they could make the traveller go to another world with their sibling. Or they reboot it completely. Did they do something similar with Honkai? I have no idea what's going on in those games at all or if they even have a similarly clear endpoint. What if they just make Genshin 2 set another few centuries in the future or past kek

originally genshin was intended to last 5 years, but because of the success they made a whole new plan for 10-12 years. teyvat is only a continent and it was hinted that all the gods who didn't want to take part in the archon war fled off to "dark sea" which may be not a literal sea since information is vague and scattered. I feel like people underestimate genshin's world building potential, or maybe I just watch and read too many lorebeards, and let's be real as long as it makes money it won't go away

None of the reliable leaks have alluded to this, but it's always possible, I suppose. They seem to be suggesting she has more of a 6-winged motif like picrel, but it's hardly very descriptive kek. We'll find out more soon now that the beta is out. Overall, I don't see why they'd bother doing this. People have been losing their mind over Arlecchino as she is. Her mystique and relative lack of sexualization is the appeal. They just don't need to do it. There will always be moids who scream and cry over stuff like this, but if HYV capitulated to every male tantrum, we'd have no yume or fujobait at all.

Genshin has been really exhausting lately, we're in the process of 8 consequent new limited female 5 stars (Furina, Navia, Xianyun, Chiori, Arlecchino, Clorinde, also Sigewinne and Emilie are going to be 5-stars according to leaks) and then instead of the popular male characters or any Sumeru guys they gave white day arts to Enjou and Baizhu. At least the Japanese account posted Wriothesley since he's been ranking really high in character polls there (probably due to Daisuke Ono) but if the leaks are true and Natlan is going to have only 2 male characters vs 8 female characters and the ugliest archon design yet I think I'm just losing my interest altogether. Sumeru was so good that it feels especially dampening to watch what the game is turning into. Maybe they're trying to get female players to Star Rail since they've been releasing a lot of male characters there lately?

No. 362574

I don't know, there were husbando banners almost back to back for a while and leaks for Natlan can't be trustworthy at this point. Remember how the first Inazuma line-up only showed Thoma for example. But I understand you, I dropped the game for most of Inazuma and Sumeru because I just didn' care about the characters getting released and logging in to grind dailies and events felt pointless because of it.
I also wonder what they are doing with HSR, if they wanted more players they should've just made a game that doesn't suck. The turn-based combat is so boring and there's no jumping or gliding so movement feels restricted compared to genshin. All around not a very fun experience

There's no feasible way Sigewinne can be a 5* at this point unless she's getting released way later, we're running out of patches for new five star releases.

Well the Inazuma version did end up with only two male 5-stars (Three if you count Kazuha) and two 4-stars with like 8 female 5-stars.

>I also wonder what they are doing with HSR, if they wanted more players they should've just made a game that doesn't suck.

They fumbled so hard with Star Rail, it never reached the hype Genshin did despite a massive advertising budget because it lacked the casual-friendly exploration and the combat heavily forces you into rolling for new units that get released because the old characters you have constantly get powercrept. That's why I'm wondering if they're trying to pressure female players into it since it was obvious the userbase is heavily male and there's already a ton of competition for their wallets.

There's an article dissecting Star Rail's nature as a game that also mentions Mihoyo's business strategy. https://naavik.co/how-honkai-star-rail-reveals-cracks-in-the-hoyoverse/

Most of it is just autism over the game design choices in HSR but some key parts reveal that Star Rail had a huge burst of popularity in downloads during launch, but it staggered quite early on and after month 3 it only had half of the downloads Genshin's launch did. Some other interesting parts are as follows:
>On a portfolio level, HSR isn’t driving incremental revenue for miHoYo. Even though miHoYo did see record revenue levels during HSR’s launch months, the total monthly portfolio revenue has come down to pre-HSR levels. In other words, HSR has clearly cannibalized Genshin Impact, and quite majorly at that.
>As covered previously, this cannibalization is in large part driven by miHoYo heavily promoting HSR to Genshin Impact’s audience, plus working with many Genshin Impact influencers to stream HSR instead. While it’s generally wise to lean on your portfolio’s audience to drive future product success, the fact is that HSR and Genshin Impact are both time-consuming with insane spend depth, and players have both limited time and budgets for gaming.
>Even though HSR’s first two months saw 1.5x more downloads than Genshin Impact’s first two months, it only saw a marginally higher cumulative revenue over the same time period ($256M vs $235M for Genshin Impact). And by month five, HSR’s cumulative revenue is slightly lower than that of Genshin Impact’s ($390M vs $420M), even though cumulative downloads are still 1.3x higher.
>Clearly, HSR is not as revenue efficient as Genshin Impact, as evidenced by comparing the two games’ RPD curves. At month five, HSR’s iOS US RPD is -40% lower than that of Genshin Impact’s ($3.32 vs $5.48), and this RPD difference is consistent across regions.
HSR also isn't generating enough revenue in the western servers.
>It is also interesting to note that HSR does not monetize as well as Genshin Impact in the West. Looking at the revenue splits by region, HSR is the only game that doesn’t generate a proportionate amount of US revenue versus US downloads:
>HSR: 70% East, 30% West → US is 30% of downloads, but only 15% of revenue
>Genshin Impact: 60% East, 40% West → US is 15% of downloads and 20% of revenue
Also Genshin is still making much more money in the iOS store in both US and Asia than Star Rail.

This isn't the Star Rail thread but I found the number crunching in that article quite interesting, and it's inevitably going to connect back to how Mihoyo treats Genshin and what choices they make with it. All in all they wanted to bring Genshin players to Star Rail in hopes of them giving money to both HSR and Genshin but the strategy failed, now they're playing Star Rail but not putting any money in it or Genshin. Maybe that's why they're suddenly pushing out new 5-star after 5-star, testing the waters perhaps?

According to activeplayer.io hsr had 21m players in the last 30 days while genshin had 62m, but both numbers have been on the decline.

Very interesting to see, thanks for sharing nona. I feel like another part of it is that HSR just doesn't have the same mass appeal. Genshin doesn't only have an okay ratio of male:female characters but also takes inspiration from multiple different cultures while HSR seems to mostly lean chinese, so I can see why it's not as popular in the west. I get the feeling ZZZ will be even less popular because it doesn't even have the trademark hoyo style to carry it and the only somewhat cute male character is a fucking furry kek

No. 362604

I'm sure it doesn't help that HSR was released in a very saturated market. Mobile turn-based JRPGs are a dime a dozen. High-quality open world gachas are much rarer and attract PC gamers, which North America and Europe have a lot more of than Asia.

Being an Albedo fan is so painful lately…He just got directly powercrept even when he was already a very replaceable niche support and it's been forever since he's had a lore event. I had been so hopeful thinking he would for sure get a good lore event in Fontaine since there's obviously lots of possible material with Elynas and the melusines. I figured he had gone so long without a rerun because they were holding off til said cool lore event happened but…clearly that was not the case. I miss my cute and smug manlet husbando so much. Anyone happen to know if being insane and getting his C4 would actually make for a damage increase on any of the plunge teams with Xianyun, or if having Bennett or Furina in the other support slots would always be better than even a C4 Albedo?

No. 362609

HSR is clearly meant for a domestic audience in China with the heavy emphasis on the Chinese-inspired characters and the game mechanics being a very generic turn based RPG with no exploration on maps that make your phone blow up. Most Chinese players play on mobile and like speculated the mobile first approach it makes it less appealing to the west which prefers PC as a platform. Compared to Genshin Star Rail is a pretty boring experience since you don't get to explore the world that much and you can put all battles on autoplay and only check in occasionally, it lacks the charm of the open world that drew in people with Genshin and made them curious about the world of the game. I don't know if it was a conscious decision on Mihoyo's part but seeing how much they've been shilling HSR with huge advertising campaigns for Penacony and paying popular Genshin CCs play it I don't think so.

Honestly anon I think the only hope is if his brother is released as a new unit or if one day characters get an additional awakening and passives like in many other gacha games to give old units a needed overhaul. Chiori's sword helps him so you're not screwed out of damage if you use his burst (crit is by far the best stat to focus on for split scalers like him) but his kit is just so all over the place and his constellations are horrible. Even just reworking his constellations to make them fit modern kit standards would be a blessing.

It runs pretty poorly and I can't recommend it to anyone. Load times are long so playing in co-op is painful, let alone the length of the initial log-in. I usually have to ask the host to re-send the invite.
Lots of texture pop-in. Sometimes frames will drop and the game will temporarily freeze when you have too much happening in combat at once. I usually notice this in my dendro teams that have a lot of reactions happening to groups of enemies within a short time period. The overall performance got noticeably worse since the start of 3.0 and I'd been playing since around 1.4
Additionally, every time you update the game, the PS4 has to basically redownload the entire game so that takes forever. You also can't pre-install before the servers go down like you can on desktop (and mobile I believe?). You have to wait until the servers are down to be allowed to install the update and it's random when it decides to let you. It doesn't allow you to start the download straight away. I'd usually have to wait at least an hour.
Another pain point is if you buy any welkins or crystals through the playstation store. Those genesis crystals will be held hostage on your playstation log-in. You won't see them on mobile or desktop.
I had to make the switch from PS4 to PC around 4.0 because I just couldn't take how shitty it ran anymore.

No. 363595

Kinda shit but workable. My laptop is terrible and can't run Genshin anymore so I've been using the PS4 and some of the limitations are nonsensical, like if someone gifts you primos on desktop, it won't show up on the PS. Co-op is shit and there is some lag. The updates take my PS like 5 hours to download. But it does the trick if you don't have alternatives.

Why the fuck is genshin so heavy? It's insane, I couldn't play for like 2 years because I refuse to buy a whole ass new PC to play a Chinese game.
I need to know, when did you all buy your PCs? Because mine is from 2020 and it stopped running Genshin after the sumeru update, right in the middle of the archon quest when Scaramouche appeared. It isn't the most amazing gaming PC but hell, you would think that a game that's supposed to run on a phone would be smooth as fuck on a fucking PC, and would be updateable a bunch of times, specially considering how the game isn't that detailed.

in contrast to the other nonas, I've played genshin 99% on PS4 and it runs absolutely fine. Great graphics - yes sometimes theyll take 5 or so secs to fully load in when switching to cutscenes, but it really aint that bad and once theyre loaded its beautiful. Doesnt ever lag for me and I just have the basic original PS4, overall runs 1000x better than phone. I very rarely play coop tho I guess it depends on your priorities. Pain in the ass to update every 6 weeks tho as you pretty well have to redownload the whole game

Do you have a ton of programs open in the background? I can run it on highest settings with my 3 year old laptop. It only lags if I have chrome with a million tabs open while playing

No. 363803

Nope, I tried to play it home alone, with no other programs open in the background and even with my phone disconnected from the wifi in case it was the bad internet quality, I even prioritized the game on my PC and nothing, the game froze horribly and died on me.
Idk, I will try cleaning my pc up and adding some cooling paste to it, maybe that's what it needs.
For reference, I can't even open cookie run kingdom on my PC nowadays.
But at this point I'm honestly giving up on playing genshin impact on a PC until I buy a new one in like 4 years or so, the game will continue getting updates until it ends the plot and dies forever.
Which makes me wonder, is genshin impact going to continue existing even after the whole archon stuff is over? Or are they going to just create more and more reasons why the twins can't go back to their true world until the game stops being profitable?

Yeah, clean your fans and such, that definitely sounds like your computer is clogged with dust if it had such a rapid downhill decline.

I'm not sure what's worse, the in-your-face yaoibaiting of Haikaveh, or whatever the hell lazy shit Neuvillette and Wriothesley were supposed to be.

I'm very indifferent to Haikaveh, but people who still have your mentality are surprising to me. It's the most blatant fujobait, the fandom has a ton of fujos, and there are also tons of underage fans who don't understand having different spaces for different things. Of course they are going to sperg about it. You either have to learn how to ignore it or find a different fandom, that's just how it is.

Someone in the team was a fujo and put her best work on display and I love her for it, their relationship was written by someone who was genuinely invested in it.

No. 368320

I love so many things about the game, including certain ships. I don't have anything against Haikaveh as such either. I just think it's a bit annoying that you'd have someone ask questions about, say Alhaitham artifacts and someone starts sperging about them fucking at night. That's my only complaint and for some reason I only ever see it with Haikaveh. I just wanted to vent, but since I'm apparently in the wrong for it I'm going to stop now. 'S all good.

No. 368344

All I'm reading here is that their characters are so reliant on each other, they basically don't exist as individuals anymore. Alhaitham was interesting in the AQ, but as soon as Kaveh released they both started revolving only around their ship.
And yes it is yaoibait, sometimes there's nothing wrong with that, but it's annoying when they lose their individual personalities and every time they appear on screen there has to be some kind of ship tease because the devs want to cater to fujos for the whalebux.
Idk what your point about straight ships is supposed to be, they don't exist in gachas because all the scrotes want their waifus to remain single and pure. Having same sex ships is more palatable for them because they can pretend they're just best friends instead of a couple (self insert into the other female character ew).

TLDR there's no need to get this mad because one person is annoyed with your ship kek

No. 368446

>All I'm reading here is that their characters are so reliant on each other, they basically don't exist as individuals anymore
This. Not that any of genshin's characters stand alone particularly well, but now we're to the point where they have nothing going for them anymore besides McShipbait and I say this as a longtime het/yume-hating fujo. Personally I can't even get invested in a ship when both the characters are like that. That's why all the fans are weird and so much of the fan content comes off as out of character. The characters themselves can barely be called characters so fans try to make up for that and in the process they basically ends up turning into their OCs.

No. 368491

Ayrt and I feel you, I just also feel like it's par for the course at this point and it's been this way for years now. I think a lot of younger fandom people in general really don't understand proper fandom etiquette, like understanding time/place, tagging properly, etc. and it is annoying. I've just made my peace with it with a lot of blocking and ignoring because there's nothing much to be done about it.
It's still definitely fujobaiting. It's the definition of a shiptease. It's not canon. It's the most heavy-handed they've been with their fujobait but it's still, at the very most, hinted at. No one is saying fujos were duped or "got good," just calling a spade a spade. This game attempts to pander to yumes, fujos, himes, and waifufags all at the same time while leaving enough plausible deniability so that anyone offended can deny its presence, that's their profit model.

No. 369261

>say Alhaitham artifacts and someone starts sperging about them fucking at night. That's my only complaint and for some reason I only ever see it with Haikaveh.
Lol, I feel this so hard. I never had issues with other fujos until this ship. Sometimes they make me want to start fresh media accounts to start with a completely non-fujo feed. It's always a Haikaveh one when I run into one that's particularly rabid or annoying.
For example, I like to browse most Alhaitham content, including most ships, so this one time I was looking at this post about a straight Alhaitham wedding art and there were all sorts of Haikaveh fujos throwing a fit in the comments about it. Why? You would know from the title of the post exactly what it was going to be. They appear to dominate the fandom side for both characters but still sperg out about some content not catering to them. It's very rude and obnoxious. Not to say it NEVER happens, but I've never ran across this kind of behaviour from other genshin ships except those that like Aether harem shipping.
Kavetham, on the other hand, has a problem of me coming across too much cuntboy Alhaitham but I much prefer the way they don't flanderdize Kaveh's personality nearly as much as Haikaveh fans tend to.
My favorite types of fans to discuss fandom stuff with are those that know most of what we like to pretend about isn't canon and it's all for fun.
Personally, I think they're written in canon as estranged best friends but how can you not have some fun imagining them as more?

I swear TMR must be paying the devs to get Itto featured more. People always claim Ei doesn't get really any lines because of how much her JP VA is alleged to cost but you'd think such a notable name as TMR would be somewhat pricey too.
I feel bad for those that don't care for him at all. He's one of my favorites, triple crowned, but holy cow I really can't understand why he gets featured so much. He doesn't even seem particularly popular. I only see more and more people getting irritated about his existence as Hoyo shoves him into more events and appearances.
Maybe it's an issue of the Inazuma cast as a whole. They wrote Ei into the NEET corner so who else is popular? Ayato? Boring. Ayaka? Also a snoozefest. Yae? She's got to be the most featured Inazuman behind Itto. Everyone else is pretty forgettable.
I wish they'd show Thoma more too. He's the perfect mix of brave and sweet, while having a cute design.

No. 369734

The voice actor thing is kind of weird to me because Kaeya's voice actor can't be cheap, considering he's to voice of Mikazuki Munechika in JP, yet he kind of appears from time to time in events and stories.
But tbh, Itto is still getting cosplays made by people, even though he was released a long time ago, meanwhile it's difficult to see someone cosplaying venti, ei, or even zhongli, or at least it's like that in my country. I also haven't seen people cosplaying most characters of genshin that aren't the flavor of the month characters (with a recent gacha release). But again, it's probably just a matter of my small country, I'm still curious about how it works at other cons.
Because maybe Mihoyo uses cons as another way to figure out who is liked and who isn't that liked, because what I've noticed is that in social media, people create micro-communities of characters and ships, so it's not the best indicator for what the general public actually wants to see, specially if they just want more normies to join.
So like, you can use the silly oni character as your unofficial mascot, or maybe you can use the character with a screechy voice who has an insane enby voice actress, or the way too cool and serious representation of China, or the many girls that have more porn made of them than sfw art.
I guess in the end, Itto is some sort of "safe" choice.

No. 369741

God, I feel this kek. I didn't have anything against Itto at first, but they are so determined to insert him in everything. Why? Is it because they have so few designated "comic relief" characters? I swear we see him more than any other Inazuma character. I vote they release Thoma from the irrelevancy dungeon, but really I would be satisfied with just anyone who isn't Itto. Maybe it would be better if they gave him more than 2 character traits, but I don't know how they manage to keep milking bean allergies and beetle jokes. I am so so sick of him.

No. 369752

>zhongli and venti
Zhongli and Venti are some of the most common male Genshin characters to see cosplayed here. Ei isn't as popular but there's a few around. I expect Furina will be popular this con season. Itto is a lot rarer because you need to be ripped or wear a chest piece to not look ridiculous. He's relegated to thotty men and androgynous women who will actually bother to wear a chest piece.
It's funny to me that Itto is the new Mr. Worldwide but it is kind of ridiculous they can't figure out how to incorporate any of the other Inazuman characters in naturally. I'd like to see Thoma again too and Heizou would have been nice in that detective event. Let Itto rest for a bit and actually learn with Cloud Retainer.

>can they just come up with ANY other "funny" character
Seriously, it's so overdue. All their characters act like polite strangers, Itto and Furina are the only ones with a strong personality but I feel like she's not going to be featured anywhere any time soon considering how her story ended. There has to be something else that's keeping them from writing fun characters and dynamics and I'm starting to suspect that it's simply the chinese style of storytelling (and not just the need to make characters as broadly appealing as possible by making them super mild and inoffensive so any personality can be projected onto them). Arknights and Path to Nowhere are also developed by chinese studios and both are so fucking boring and a pain to read despite having interesting premises and I've seen similar complaints coming from people that try Wuxia novels

>Why does Itto get so much screen time
It's because he's their crutch character that they use whenever they run out of ideas for events. "Itto does something random and dumb because he's unemployed xd" plotlines are easy to shit out.

While most of the Inazuma cast really is boring as fuck, Yoimiya, Heizou, and even stupid ass Kirara aren't uber serious. I think events focused on them would be more fun than Itto event #63874. I also liked Kuki when she came out but unfortunately she has turned out to be nothing more than a satellite character to Itto.
And hey, we are getting Heizou in the 4.6 Itto event. His third ever appearance after his hangout, which features Itto pretty heavily (he even appears in two of the ending pictures and gives us some ugly fucking onikabuto teapot furniture - why we got that for HEIZOU's hangout is beyond me), and that one yokai event where Itto was also the main character.
Yay. Heizou fans are eating so good.

I couldn't give less fucks about Arlecchino and the hype around her annoys me to no end but I'm extremely happy to return to Sumeru and meet the new cute boy and all the old familiar faces. Going to savor it.

No. 369963

Maybe you are right. I feel like she has has to much screen time, maybe its because she got a second second story quest which i also thought was a drag. On the wiki it shows how many quests she has been in https://genshin-impact.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Yoimiya_Appearances

I didnt even realise that Itto and her never interacted on screen before. Man there is just something about inazuma characters. I feel like the other regional characters interact a lot more with eachother

No. 369990

It's part of why Inazuma was such a drag imo, the characters apart from Ayaka and Thoma barely interacted with one another. Sumeru was a lot tighter plot-wise and the 5 stars all played a part in it, even if some had less to do than others. Even most of the 4 stars at least made an appearance, the only one who didn't was Layla iirc.

The irreconcilable urges to on one hand wanting to collect all the cute guys I like in the game asap and on the other hand wanting to build viable teams to clear the Abyss with.
Yes, it's definitely a skill issue too, but all the good teams kqm suggest have at least one character I can't stand and thus don't want to level. I guess I'll just have to accept my Abyss clear is just never going to happen under these circumstances and that I have only myself to blame.

Maybe we could help you with team building? What characters do you like playing with? I feel like most on field male characters sadly rely on Xiangling or on an offield electro character, which we sadly have no male for. But there are still some option you can use!

I'd be grateful for any help. This is my roster. So you can see I have a lot of main dps characters and a lot of Mondstadt 5* despite only starting in 4.0. Neuvillette and Kazuha I only got this banner, so they still need to be ascended past 80.
My plan now is to get Cyno’s premium team (with Baizhu and Furina coming up) down the line, but it requires Nahida and I honestly don't know who to best use until her rerun.
My other best bet is probably a team with Kazuha and Neuvillette, since I have none of the other characters required for his premium team.
But this is where I'm hurting myself because there are three characters I'd rather not level/put in my teams: MC, Fischl and Faruzan. I'm willing to level everyone else, but it still feels hopeless. :/
(And again, I know I'm probably just bad too, but 9* at floor 11 is at least no problem at all for me.)(no emoticons)

No. 370263

You can always try to make sure to collect as many boys as possible and then only pay attention to the girls you like, that's what I've been doing so far, while I can't actually clear the whole ass abyss extra levels and shit, I got to get a bunch of primos kek.

That's what I've been doing, and after Baizhu there'll only be 2 5* boys left I still want, but it has left me with a lot of main dps and not much support characters .

No. 370327

Since you are a new player i wouldnt worry to much about clearing the abyss. Also you really dont need any 5 star female characters to make any of the male dpses work, but nahida def helps with Cyno long on field time. The only 5 star female character i actually got was nahida for my al haitham, but its not a must.

A team with Kazuha or Venti and Neuv is indeed a good choice. For your team with Neuv and Kazuha I would recommend a shielder, Layla or Beidou will work nicely. You can put them together if you like or swap one of them (pref swap Beidou since Layla has better shield) for an off field damage character like Albedo. If the other team needs Kazuha just swap him for Venti. Venti and Neuv also work well together.

For your second team here a some multiple suggestions on characters that you can build and use.
Cyno, Kuki, Collei and Xingqui. If you like you could also swap Kuki with Thoma or another Dendro character like Yaoyao. You also maybe swap Kuki with Yaoyao and then swap Xingqui with Lisa but that seems like a damage loss. Do keep in mind that if you use Cyno as the only electro character his ER needs to be a lot higher.

For Xiao, you will need an anemo character. Best option would be Sucrose because you can put Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers on her, however if you dont like her you can just use venti/kazuha/lynette/Jean. Use him with Bennet for healing and atk buff. You could also use 2 anemo supps if you only want him to be the main damage dealer and if you think he can do enough damage. Otherwise just the last spot for an offield dps like Albedo. Xiangling can also work but there her burst wont be up the whole time while Xiao is on field.

Diluc can be used with Bennet, Kazuha and Xingqui. You can also swap out Xingqui with Kaeya as alternative. Another team you try is mono pyro with Venti, Kazuha, Bennet and Xiangling.

These are only some suggestions, there are many more team options however it will cost time to level all your characters and build them. I hope some of my suggestions might help you out!

No. 370329

You could send Neuvillette into the Abyss with three level 1 characters and he would still obliterate everything in his path, no need for any premium teams

No. 370526

Thank you so much! I'll definitely be investing heavily in that Neuvillette team with Kazuha, Layla and Beidou then since that's actually what I've been trying out in the overworld for now.

As for Cyno, I guess I'll play around a bit once I've got Baizhu and see what feels best/most fun.

Most of the time I actually don't care that I can't clear the Abyss and just want to run around with my cute boys, but sometimes my tryhard side comes out and makes me miserable for being "bad". Rn, my goal is to simply clear floor 12 even if it's with zero stars, we'll see if I'll eventually make it.

Again, thank you for your detailed advice!

You're right, but that's where my need to git gud comes in. But I hope that once I've built him he'll do some heavy lifting for me.

No. 370551

You can use Dendro MC with Cyno in the absence of Nahida. It's very copium but better than any of your other options currently. Baizhu feels good with Cyno but does not replace Nahida with him imo. Ideally you want both of them.
How do you feel about Alhaitham? He's Kuki's best teammate. Him + Kuki + Xingqiu + any defensive option is very meta. Neuvillette is obviously very strong and doesn't really rely on specific teammates.

No. 370569

She said she rather wouldn't level mc. It's true that dendro mc is a mini nahida and her burst lasts a long time which is nice for cyno. But i feel like if she will eventually get nahida anyway it would be a waste to lvl mc if she doesn't like that

No. 370571


My dislike for the MC is admittedly irrational, but if she is the only one that works until I get Nahida, I guess I'll have to consider. I know it would be easier to just build an Alhaitham team since I'll try to get him on his next rerun too, but Cyno just has a special place in my heart and is actually relatively well built (even dual crowned), so I'd love to make him work.

Again, thank you all for your input!

I understand the Cyno love, anon. I have him C6ed. You can definitely make him work but his teams are quite inflexible at the moment, it's kind of the sad truth of him. We need more dendros that work well with him besides Nahida. Then he'd work a lot more smoothly.

I started to understand why people feel this way about genshin after playing star rail. And I'm not talking about side quests, I'm talking about main quests.

No. 370837

I agree >>370833 about Star Rail. Even in Genshin I stopped caring and let the quest run in the desert after a while and watched a summary with theories to real life references. Felt more engaging lol I let the story run without watching and occasionally click a dialogue option when I hate/don't care about the character too. But I get that they don't add a skip option so f2ps can't farm a bunch of primos in new accounts and have every character for free across multiple accounts.

I'm actually interested in the lore, but I swear for some reason most sidequests make my brain just shut off. I tried to pay attention during the Narzissenkreuz questline because everyone kept saying how amazing and lore relevant it is, but in the end I just skimmed the text. I don't know if it's because I just can't focus on reading in a game (bc I do read a lot of books irl) or if it's the way the dialogue in Genshin is written.

I have to admit I'm a bit salty about Xiao's whole personality being reduced to nothing but shipping bait. Like, ship what you (general you) want, I'm not trying to stop you. But imo his whole character development is being thrown out of the window for it. Let the poor guy actually socialise with the other adepti or make human friends for once. With how busy the Traveler is with their journey, having them be the only person he relies on just sets him up for disappointing. Again, it's just my opinion, but it's because I like Xiao as a character that I'd love more for him than what he'd currently getting.

another character ruined by moids, you can't try to enforce so badly the idea that arlecchino is GNC, and then shove her tiddies in our face. baby arlecchino looks like a boy and adult arlecchino prefers masculine terms so in the context of the game she's clearly supposed to be a very masculine woman, but it falls flat when the genshin team still needs validation from male coomers
but i think his latest quests showed that he is making more friends? like yelan, hutao, venti

>lyney and lynette never met the previous Director
>freminet is a "young man"

We know because of that animated short. Freminet was a child and knew the previous orphanage mother, and the battle royal took place when Arlecchino was below or exactly 18 years old. Freminet seems to be about 15 to 18 now, so that means not much more than 10 years could have passed since Arlecchino took over the orphanage, making her about 25 to 28. Maybe 30 if Freminet is an extremely young looking 20 year old, but I doubt that.
This also gives us kind of a clue about Childe's age since I don't think he's as old as Arle, so he's probably early to mid 20s.

I dont fucking know, man. Id rather her backstory had her randomly just spawning from nowhere than this shit.

FUCKING AUTISMO WAIFU GOONER-BAIT SHENHE HAD A BETTER BACKSTORY IN MIDYUE. We have had a harbinger who fell into hell at the age of fourteen. We have had a harbinger who started off as the abandoned prototype of a god 500 years ago. We have had a harbinger who obtained the legacy of an evil fire-witch 500 years after she was betrayed by her archon - and this one's an NPC. And now the fourth most powerful harbinger is a fucking yuri-bait spastic retarded felon with a backstory recycled in the slop factory of goonism?

Compared to how related to the world every other harbinger seems in their backstory and how they ended up with the fatui, along with the ones you mentioned, the ultra-rich Pantalone is obsessed with trying to overthrow mora with his own currency experiment he prototypes in the Meropide Fortress because he's salty he wasn't deemed worthy due to never receiving a vision and Sandrone is the creator of Kathryn for example. I was willing to give her a chance once her backstory would be revealed but what I ended up getting was evil murderous tragic yuribait shlock written by a local middle schooler.

The animated short is what makes me think she is at least mid 30s and Lyney and Lynette are at least in their mid 20s, with Freminet in his early 20s. Arle looks very, very different as a teenager in the short. She grew taller, her face lost its softness, and her arm curse is nearly up to her shoulders now. My initial thought was that it took place hundreds of years ago based on the Harbingers that were there but that doesn't make sense with Freminet's backstory.

No. 372065

How in the world could Freminet be early 20s? I'm not talking about his appearance bc all the boy models look young, but his behaviour. Even if you account for his trauma I find it impossible to believe that a guy in his early 20s behaves like that. Not dissing Freminet here, I like him okay, but he comes across as very immature.

I poked around a bit more and found out that this flashback (youtu.be/0jNkfHOBBBc?si=M_iyMcqgI3YEA-FY - can't embed since I'm uploading picrel) shows the twins at around the age of 9 to 12. At that point they had already been part of the Fatui. They only trained under that guy - who died 10 years ago - for 10 days, so they are 19 to 22, meaning Freminet is likely in his mid to late teens. He couldn't have been a toddler while the previous orphanage owner was still running things because he was being sent out to do assassination missions under her command. This means he was at least ~6 when the battle royale took place.
Taking all of this into consideration and assuming she was older than 16 in the animated short, Arlecchino has to be somewhere in her late 20s to, at most, 31. If she wasn't yet 16, she would be even younger than this, putting her at closer to 25 years old.
Ugh… even if she is in her late 20s, it's so cringe how the twins aren't that much younger than her. I thought they'd at least make her 35 or something.
But yeah, Lyney and Lynette being 20, Freminet 18, and Arlecchino 28 seems the most accurate to me.

The better question would be why some anons here have a rock solid boner for her despite being the cringiest yuribait edgelord so far.

>Street children will also look younger and malnourished compared to healthy cared for children but that's my own autism going on so I'll shut up.
Which reminds me iirc Lyney or Lynette's voiceline about their favourite food said something along the lines that they have to remain slender and small in stature to be able to be each others' body doubles during magic tricks. So yeah, they both could just as well be in their early 20's.

Anon I understand the copium but be for real, she wasn't in her early 20s here. She's a tall woman and here she looks like she's 155cm. Female puberty doesn't work this way.
>he has such vivid and clear memories of his former family
I don't see why a 6 to 10 year old wouldn't have these. I wouldn't be surprised if the devs retcon that Freminet knew the orphanage owner before Arlecchino, but as of right now, the ages I calculated are canon.
Yeah, they are? They're canonically about 22.

>Diluc and Jean younger than Lyney and Lynette
I read all of this but am choosing to ignore it. Fuck men and their obsession with keeping everyone vaguely-almost underage. If Wrio was a woman he would be a 16 year old that renovated the prison system in the last 2 years.
This is an anonymous thread, no one's gaining yuri points for liking a character. Can nonnies really not fathom that women that like female characters exist?

No. They can't comprehend other women having different tastes than they do, we have to be doing it for male attention or clout or whatever narrative best suits them.

A bit of projection maybe but I don't really have any solid memories before age 8, and even those are pretty fuzzy.
If Freminet was 10 when he was given up he'd have to be at least 20-22 since Arlecchino's been the Knave for at least 10 years.
It's probably the same screeching moron who tries to start infights every time anons mention liking a female character. Just ignore the bait, it's not worth responding to.

No. 372135

What really gets me is that she gets a fucking anime short despite her story being completely irrelevant to the story but someone really wanted to flex their yuribait edgelord because a special scythe wasn't enough. Fuck, they finally drop a bigger budget animated short instead of those flat flash animations and it's like an entirely different game dedicated to a character that has no real plot relevancy besides just being a ~crazy killer maniac~ grooming child soldiers. Fuck the Scaramouche clothing sets, I wanted to see his Kabukimono storyline animated instead. Fuck the waifufag who was responsible for this.

I haven't been enthusiastic for a long time for a character in Genshin after the snoozefest this patch was. I can't wait to spend my primos for her.

No. 372591

This might sound crazy, but I like her because of her edgyness and cringe edgy y2k nostalgia. I'm hoping her SQ does give us something better than that aniamted video though, we still don't know about her curse.

No. 372767

yes you're projecting, I have solid memories from when I was 4, and especially solid memories of traumatic events. freminet was probably like 5 or 6 and he'd be like 16 yrs old now

fucking hate sigewinne

No. 372781

I just don't understand why she's a 5? She didn't play a memorable role in the AQ (imo), but she'll also be the third 5 hydro bow user while we're only have three hydro 4*s in total.

I'm not interested in any of the characters they revealed today though, so unless they'll rerun Furina or Alhaitham in 4.7, I'll skip those banners.

No. 372786

I would have really liked her if she was an actual melusine instead of a loli

No. 372795

a playable melusine would be cute
fontaine barely has any 4 stars so i don't get it either, nothing about her screams 5 star and yet she's so popular because of her interaction with wrio

No. 372806

>she's so popular because of her interaction with wrio
Is she though? I only see her mentioned when the topic is Wrio being good with kids. I really don't get what popularity she has to be 5. Is anyone other than lolicons pulling for her? I like children characters but I still wouldn't pull for a 5 specifically. Agreeing with >>372786 though.
I'm also only waiting for Furina in the next update.

No. 372811

she's very popular in japan and like half of wrio's fanart includes her for some reason

No. 372812

Wouldn't be surprised if it was a ship thing. Like I've seen too many people call her Wrio and Neuvi's daughter. Barf

No. 372852

considering that melusines were all born a long ass time ago, her only "parental" figure could be neuvilette, because elynas could only hold some form of contact with mamere

No. 373079

ship thing as in shipping her with wrio. check tanuki_nishi on twitter, she says in her profile she ships oniichan x loli
wrio is the most popular character among japanese yumes so i wouldn't be surprised if this is some sort of weird projection but it's still weird as fuck to make your husbando a depraved lolicon/pedo. the art looks tame enough so onlookers might thing "oh it's father daughter relationship" but most of the fanartists admit that they ship them romantically too. probably the same weirdos who were shipping alhaitham x nahida. it's weird cause you'd think the yumes would ship wrio x lumine or wrio x clorinde (another barf ship but at least it doesn't involve a loli) but they all latched onto sigewinne instead ew

No. 373155

Honestly, I kind of blame the Genshin writers for making Sigewinne so oddly… adult for a little girl model. Nahida has the same issue, I've never seen her shipped with Alhaitham but Scara/Nahida is really popular in Asian countries. Dori would also get shipped with adult characters if she wasn't ugly and irrelevant.
Qiqi or Klee don't get this treatment because they actually somewhat act their age, but Sigewinne has an entire fulltime job in a prison of all places lol and there's constantly a point being made about how melusines aren't animals or children but intelligent creatures. It doesn't help that she has that gross Sanrio pastel vomit uwu so smol type of aesthetic which ddlg retards flock to. They seriously should have made her a full melusine or a short female model.
And ngl I don't care about Wriothesley/Clorinde or any Genshin ships in general, but I actually prefer them over Wriolette. At least they seem to have a somewhat fun best friends "deadpan & laidback" dynamic compared to Neuvillette and Wrio which is the most boring ship I've ever seen. Neuv is basically asexual to me, I can't envision him fucking anything or anyone

No. 373156

A lot of the lolis in this game are treated as lolibabas cause they're actually super old and "mature", but at the same time I refuse to believe characters like scara or wrio would ever feel attracted to them. They're literally built like toddlers, it's not even the usual loli cope where you could say well she's just a short adult, the genshin lolis look like fucking midgets. At least wrio x sigewinne shippers are decent enough to not draw them kissing but scarahida is actually so disgusting. I hate a lot of genshin ships, but at least I can hand wave it as a different taste, but anyone who ships anything involving these toddlers needs to go to therapy

I wish they'd stop giving bad kits to cool-looking characters. 4 star DPS are dead on arrival.
He plays like Tighnari. That would be fine but it's never worth choosing a 4 star over a 5 star DPS. Sigewinne should have been the 4 star.

No. 373284

I didn't need to know that that name even exists, this is why I've been staying away from the Fandom and even this thread, I hate the fact that the name of that disgusting ship even exists.

No. 373289

I wonder what the point of giving them such awful kits even is. Of course not every character can be good but all the best 4 stars are the early support ones and even they get benched once a 5 star version inevitably appears

Yeah me too I got Dehya on my 50/50. Part of me wants to roll for Lyney instead.
What do we think of the update so far? I think it’s pretty but too much water.

No. 373382

lmao, I also lost to Dehya. If I have anything left after Arlecchino I'll throw some rolls into Lyney's banner, but only because I like him as a character. He is a charged shot user, yet his presumably best team has you face hugging the enemies standing in a circle. Hoyoverse fucked him up making him monopyro without good supports for him

No. 373496


Did everyone lose their 50/50 to Dehya? At least I had enough saved to get Arlecchino in the end. It’s too bad that Dehya’s kit got botched, I like her as a character but I’m not super motivated to build her.

I got her, but I had to go all the way to hard pity. Going for her weapon was hellish too, lost the 50/50 twice.

Why the heck are we getting yet another xinyan centric event?? Idk if you guys have seen the leaks but xinyan will play a huge role in the next event, along with yunjin to some extent. There's so many 4 stars that barely get any screentime, yet she's always pushed. And don't get me wrong, I don't hate xinyan, I think she's cool I just don't understand why are they not giving other 4 star characters more spotlight. Such as candace, when is the last time we've heard of her? At least give her a hangout…

Yeah, his creepiness being nerfed is much more tragic. I hope his fatui twin can compensate for that in the future

Agree about his personality being nerfed, I would've been able to forgive the ugly ass yoga pants if he would've been made into a creep. I was fully expecting him to have some sort of an interesting dark side hidden.

im more confused as to what happened to kaveh, he isnt getting any re-runs and he never appears anywhere. is mihoyo keeping him locked in their basement or what?

No. 373558

His Chinese voice actor got caught fucking fans like the Oz's one (which they ended up changing) iirc so I'm guessing they kept him out of the limelight for some time to escape the heat. Kaveh has appeared in numerous collabs recently though and he's making a comeback in the upcoming Sumeru event.

No. 373559

ah of course the voice actor is a freak, how typical at this point. but im happy kaveh returns soon.

No. 373561

jfc and I thought that that's because his kit is so bad. what's with those moids VAs always causing trouble? Oz, Tighnari and Kaveh's too now also a shame because CN voices are so pretty

No. 373562

Spoilers for Arle story quest You nonnies reminded me how disappointed I was with Baizhu being tame. They nerfed even Arle's personality hard, she's mentally sound and has an actual moral compass. Despite all the previous times other characters called her evil and unpredictable. Don't know if we should expect that wolf side to emerge in the next quest they mentioned and this quest was just showing the sheep clothing. She was a sheep in wolf clothing if anything. Even Tartag was so chill but then again this is probably leading to him being gullible and betrayed by the Rooster.
Nta but damn. I remember not seeing Fischl anywhere for months because of that, glad Kaveh is back soon.

Her VAs might be easier to hire than others, plus she's never had a story quest or hangout. I'm guessing VA availability affects more than we know, such as in Kaveh's example. I like her a lot so I won't complain. Wish he kit sucked less ass.

No. 373573

I fucking hate how they moralfagify every single playable character. Inb4 Dottore releases in 3 years and they give us some lame ass clone of his who's an innocent little baby.
>she's mentally sound and has an actual moral compass
Either Scaramouche has 0 social skills for believing she's deranged when she's such a normie, or they retconned her. Probably the former, but still a shame. She had the potential to be really cool.

No. 373585

But what would they even center a Candace event around? Xinyan has that Iridescence Tour plotline that they probably want to finish now that the MC is in Fontaine, though I haven't seen any leaks myself yet

Even Neuv warned us about her. I wonder if she will turn on us soon?
