Kokomi looks a lot like Chika Fujiwara. Another character who has Fujiwara at their last name. That would be Takumi Fujiwara. And Takumi Fujiwara wakes up at 3:00AM to deliver tofu. The answer would most certainly be yes. Kokomi likes Tofu.

On the bright side, you can give her all your healing bonus and HP artifacts that you normally wouldn't use on anyone/trash


PlatnumxStatuS

You mean the ones I’ve been using as fodder that would actually be excellent on Kokomi? 🥲


Upstairs_Archer1427

TunaTunaLeeks

Well, banners last for 3 weeks so we should have a decent analysis of her performance before the next patch so we can take our time deciding if she really is meme levels of bad. Still pretty mean/hilarious to tag her with “GenshinImpactMeme”.


AppUnwrapper1

Probably an accident. The hashtag usually starts to fill in on its own or give you choices and the person typing it probably just didn’t realize they chose the wrong one. Or they have a very good sense of humor.

There's already a yes and a no so I'll just say maybe.


GodConcepts

It's weird. They showed some advertising gameplay of her against a pyro slime and it had the ICD, but another one with an electro slime and it didn't. I personally believe the pyro slime one was an old video.


TheKamikazePickle

Where can I find the pyro slime video with the ICD?


GodConcepts

It was in the kokomi mains subreddit. I was just scrolling around and found someone noticing it.

> Most Lv80-90 characters with +16-+20 flowers can survive most things. Not if you get chain-stunned, then just about anything can kill you as long as you're not able to do anything. I get that getting hit and not having shields should have consequences, but not to the extent of getting all control taken away from the player...

Frozen, zapped, gotta climb out of the water to not die, frozen because there’s no dodge zone, zapped, frozen...I’ve died there so many times 😭


Play_more_FFS

Not if they’re Bow or Catalyst. They still instant die to nukes if they don’t have shields or damage reduction. Their defense and HP are innately lower than melee characters.


Thatuk

My 14k Ningguang facing off big enemies: *chuckles* I'm in danger.


Play_more_FFS

I use 4 bow characters between my two Spiral Abyss teams. Yoimiya, Venti, Fischl and Diona. I lost count of how many times I had to reset 12-2-2 cause one of the first 3 got one shotted by the Kenki boss. 😂


losingit303

The Kenki fight was weird for me cause I managed to get through it for the first time last abyss with Ayaka, Mona, Sucrose and Diona. But I struggled a lot the abyss before that one that was literally the same. I think its about careful timing cause you need your bursts for dmg but also for I-frames. What I ended up doing is just not using Diona's ult unless I was in big trouble. Also I 36* the abyss for the first time ever yay! All I have to say is that I wish I had enough starglitter to buy Xq the last time he was in the shop cause its obscene how good he is at c0.


Play_more_FFS

When I had to do my 3 star on that half with the 10 second disadvantage (because mobile, didn’t know the wish menu trick yet) my bursts were never synced up with the dumb low/high tide mechanic. Made 3 starring that chamber torture since I was still in the middle of building Yoimiya and her team. Congrats on your Xingqiu btw! He is a game changer.


Zzamumo

Maguu Kenki would like to have a word with you


ErikSD

so, likes Qiqi ?


sword4raven

Except for energy Element application heal uptime and damage. People are legit sleeping on her, she won't be amazing compared to pure damage characters, but she'll be a very solid healer and for some players have decent damage. With Ganyu and her you'll have 100% Freeze uptime if you can generate the needed energy. Like Fischl, she has 100% uptime on her E. This means you don't need to use her burst for healing at all just to refresh. Unless your team is very low on hp, or you need to heal everyone at once because of the new debuff. The best part of her is needing very low investment in terms of artifacts, for anyone who still doesn't have 8 good/amazing artifact sets it'll be a blessing. That said I'm not sure I'm pulling for her, and if I do it'll mainly depend on freeze.


Stock_v2

So where do you think she ll be used? According to my vivid dreams, her numbers are... not impressive; skill-wise her E cant move like Oz can and her Q requires to actually stay on her and do dmg, so it needs to be worth it (it aint) XQ is better for vape, Mona/Child is better for freeze, so where?


TheQzertz

she’s essentially copium mona for freeze and expensive barb for dps, the only place where she actually wins out is as a pure healer


crazy_gambit

Right now, replacing Diona for Ayaka in Morgana works well for 12-1, but it's kinda iffy at 12-3 with no healing at all. So, Ganyu, Kokomi, Venti, Ayaka might be nice depending on her hydro application.


Jozex21

they probably hid their usefullness behind costellations


civils6

traveler, i’ll give you this cola, please pull for me


Unohwat

Count me in *grabs the cola


Feed_or_Feed

Moment she releases Mihoyo is gonna tease Yae MIko and everybody is gonna be like, "If you don't like Kokomi then don't pull for her" "She is garbage,but you clearly had trial to see how she garbage is,so it's your fault for pulling her" and my favorite "Who cares about Kokomi,Yae is coming,she is gonna be so much better than your shitty waifu.".


_Ga1ahad

TBH i feel like more people should learn to wait a few days before pulling a character **if they're not 100% sure whether or not to pull** You like kokomi? Good for you, go ahead. You like kokomi but are also looking forward to Yae? Wait a few days, let the players review her and see how much value she can bring to your current comps and then decide yourself if it's worth skipping for the fox girl or not


Rezahn

It blows my mind how simple this concept is, and yet how many people blow 14k primos the first day of the banner, then spend the next month complaining. Waiting for reviews before pulling would solve so many peoples' woes.


Hankuro

I agree with you tbh >"She is garbage,but you clearly had trial to see how she garbage is,so it's your fault for pulling her" Let's be honest and genuine here. This line is right. If you don't like the kit and pull, that's on you. That's your own purchase decision. No one should be responsible for your own decision, but you. And no, I'm not whiteknighting. I think MHY is scummy. But, pulling a kit you don't like is also wrong. That only sends a message to MHY you are satisfied *enough* with the product to buy it. Exactly because MHY is scummy, MHY doesn't care if you are perfectly satisfied with the product. As long as you are satisfied *just enough* to use your credit card, that's MHY's win. If you aren't satisfied with the kit, it's your own decision to pull and no one should be responsible for that. If not, just don't pull I will probably get downvoted, but it's truly what i think


losingit303

Tbf at least with Raiden I don't see people complaining about her kit much. I'd anything I think most people liked it. The only kit related complaints I've seen is the Beidou thing and it's not like she was in the trial so I think it's fair that people complain about it.


Chaotickane

I waited 2 weeks to pull Kazuha. I liked his playstyle in the trial but his reception started as "He's not as good as Sucrose, meh". Then over 2 weeks that changed to him being arguably one of the best characters in the game.


_Ga1ahad

As someone who pulled Raiden day 1 (hypocrite ik but she's second only to Hu Tao) i hope people will slowly find teams where she can shine like she deserves to. Yeah, she's not an instant win that can fit in every team but every time i got a Raiden in co op i had almost infinite energy.


Zerakin

This subreddit is obsessed with this idea that they instantly know how useful a character will be on release. This is despite getting so many characters wrong, as recent as Kazuha. And now people are realizing that Raiden *is* good, but she's not some universal fit. Which frankly, I don't think any character is. Even Venti is a character I wouldn't put on every team. I'm not sure this subreddit will ever learn to give new characters a week of experimentation before declaring how "useless" they are. Though I'm already seeing the sentiment of "you don't need a healer, just dodge" going around. I can't believe we're still seeing that nonsense, ugh.


TheQzertz

Zhongli can go in pretty much any team and do exactly what you need him to do


LumiRhino

Eh Freeze teams often use Double Cryo (second Cryo almost always is Diona) Mona/XQ, and an Anemo character to boost the Cryo (and maybe Hydro) damage. If you aren’t using Diona you’re likely using Jean/Sayu or just trying to not get hit by anything, it Zhibgli is an awkward fit when VV gives better damage boost and Diona can cover shields while giving +15% crit through the resonance.


AppUnwrapper1

I mostly want Kokomi so I don’t have to build Barbara bc I really can’t stand Barbara. But I don’t hate Barbara enough to miss out on Yae. So I’ll probably just pull 10-20 fates and see what happens.


_Ga1ahad

Feel you. Pulled Kazuha bc i don't wanna use Sucrose


AppUnwrapper1

Lol I kinda sorta pulled Kaz bc I didn’t like that I only use Venti for his ult. Ended up loving Kaz more than any other character so it worked out.


Frogsama86

> TBH i feel like more people should learn to wait a few days before pulling a character if they're not 100% sure whether or not to pull This. Never pull day 1 if said character was being considered for power levels over waifu/husbando material.

Albedo and Yoimiya are like my favorite characters characterization wise. I also love Kokomis characterization but im not doing this to myself again.


Mr-men-man

I feel you man, when I heard she could walk on water I was stoked, I thought it would be her passive but it turns out to be her burst.


havoK718

When would you even use that? What a useless feature to add.


Upstairs_Archer1427

And then watch some people begs for her rerun like they do for albedo lmao


mcraft595

holy shit i've seen this statement for every banner, i don't like how there's a need to validate liking a character with this bullshit community (specially twitter and their malding subcommunities)


Yu1K0tegawa

Reddit is equally the same as those....


Upstairs_Archer1427

Both Reddit and Twiiter aren't that far off tbh its only how they express their 'toxicity. On the meanwhile, we have TikTok Genshin.


AshyDragneel

Copium overdose isnt good for health lol. People have been using this phrase for every new character since albedo lol.


Upstairs_Archer1427

I think I need to articulate more that IMO her case would not because be of new meta mechanics whatever, but bcs shes going to be rarely rerunned due to what might be a low sales banner making her a "rare" 5*, which will make her highly sought for by some people Unless you are also including this type of copium in your statement which I agree, I am on a c(h)opium overdose currently


CallMeAmakusa

I see everyone taking about it but I’ve never seen anyone begging for albedo’s rerun.


Upstairs_Archer1427

Admittedly theyre probably not that common but afaik those that want him reaalllly wants him


KillerRogue

yeah right, sure buddy just let go of the Copium tank


Upstairs_Archer1427

Nah, still gonna inhale it lmaooo *sad koko liker*


XaeiIsareth

Given that Yae is probably easily the best written character in the arc, everyone else will probably become irrelevant the moment they reveal her. Unless they throw in Varka returning to Mondstadt or something.

Wallmapuball

They already messed her. She's electro.


SteelCode

If Yae is an electro healer, she’s an auto-chase for me… I don’t need yet another hydro healer that I hate using because I hate fkn Cryo…


Treyspurlock

Kokomi doesn't apply that much hydro to you, it's only when you FIRST use her E


Sheyren

Impossible! Mihoyo are experts at character design, and there's no way they could screw up such a hyped character!


CowColle

Kokomi is literally advertised as a healer that does a bit of hydro stuff on the side. If anyone pulls for her just to whine about how useless healers are in their opinion, I'm not going to have any sympathy.

Abysal_Incinerator

It would be funny if it turned out she does 20k per auto attack when built right


glium

You probably can reach 10k, and without crit so completely consistent


LumiRhino

From my calculations (not very solid but with rough approximations) you’ll do 10k per auto, so if you can manage to vape every hit and depending on how fast her 3 hit is she might not even be that bad of a DPS.


Aurelius2625

it's literally impossible now to vape with hydro consistently, you remove too much pyro and there's no pyro in the game that can help you with that currently.


Infamous-Witch-21

Sorry Kokomi, I just pulled Qiqi, now I have all the overhealing I'll ever need

Kokomi: I’ve never asked for this.


ChildOfHades_

Wtf? Now I'm kinda mad lol


ResidentTheme872

If only there was no split scaling, I would've pulled her even if she's a meme


Rei1313

She had so much potential as a character. Sad


EXusiai99

Guess i need to stockpile on some kokopium, the demand will be high after release


Bekwnn

Y'know, just based on a bit of math, she can get ~76% healing bonus (talent + circlet + maiden's 2pc) Seemingly, her burst's scaling is increased by 15% of her healing bonus (+11.4% HP scaling). Which at rank 10 burst gives her something like 20% HP damage scaling on each normal attack. It doesn't seem like she'll do huge damage during burst, but it does seem like she'll do Noelle levels of damage during burst, while having Qiqi levels of healing and applying AoE Hydro while off-field, which all seems pretty useful. It also seems like Mihoyo is going to add more enemies/hazards over time that pierce shields, making healing supports situationally useful for those challenges/fights. Rock-paper-scissors is an important aspect of Genshin and I think the idea of some enemies pushing shields and other enemies pushing healing is healthy for the game and roster variety. Numbers might be tweaked once she's live, my main concern remains that it sounded like she had really bad energy economy in beta.


fleeingsvnlight

still pulling for her , idc if the community thinks shes bad


IgnisXIII

She shoots fishies. That is all I need.


KeemosMusic

Some don't really care about the meta and just wants to have her. I appreciate your decision


toddricke

I just wanna be Jesus 2 dammit.


Unohwat

Same man, I will pull her for the colors. I like her colors. Heals? Nah. DPS? Nah. Kokopium? Nah. I like pink


mgd5800

Honestly I am just mad about how bad she is being treated by them, like she has great designs and animations but as lore or story she was useless and had no effect, and being labeled "genius strategist" we only saw poor decisions from her, and they have removed her ability to crit rendering both Crit Rate and Crit damage stats completely useless on her(they could have made it convert to HP or something unique and usefull). It just baffels me why they made those decisions other than they want to see how far can they poorly treat a character and people will still pull for

yermumgiey

it wouldnt be a meme anymore if suddenly healing becomes meta


AigisAegis

Healing will never be meta. It's not about timers, or mechanics, or whatever. Survivability is binary: You want exactly as much of it as you need to survive, and anything past that is wasted and does nothing for you. More damage, meanwhile, is always good, because damage isn't binary. The only way for healing to become necessary is to literally force players to use a healer in order to survive. If that happens, then you'd still rather use Bennett, Jean, Diona, etc. who bring additional DPS utility. And because those three are already so adept at healing, there's just no way to dethrone them with a healer who doesn't provide DPS to the team.


mourinhoisms

insert character who has an attack buff or shield buff based on amount of overhealing received in the last 20s


havok0159

How about a weapon series with hp% as main stat whose skill provides atk% based on amount of hp healed at full hp. That would cover most healers.


DamianWinters

Id say the only way healers become meta is an endless horde mode, where its just survive as long as possible.


GSMIlZ0

They could easily introduce more challenge in abyss not revolving around killing enemies in time. They already did it with the old floor 11 chamber 1. A new type of challenge where the primary goal (but not the only one) is to survive for a set time (5mins) could give more value to healers without make all other roles useless. Something like: Survive 5 wave of enemies (level 100, high damaging ones) without loosing any party member while killing the boss (high hp one) of each wave. 10 enemies per wave, 1 boss to kill. One character got take down? You lose. You don't kill all the boss? You lose.


AigisAegis

That would make it more likely that you play healers, but the optimal healers to play would still be those that provide additional damage. That's especially true because Bennett and Jean are fantastic healers on top of the damage they provide.


LuciferNeko

Ok healing meta with your energy get fuked up like that one electro debuff domain


warofexodus

Just a poison/burn abyss floor with energy recharge penalty will do. That will make specialized healers needed. Can't heal with Bennett or jean if you can't Q.


levitatingmedia

>Just a poison/burn abyss floor with energy recharge penalty will do Energy Recharge penalty hits everyone equally hard. Qiqi's burst is 80 cost and she generates little to no particles on her own. Barbara's burst also comes at 80 cost so you'd be purely reliant on just her skill, like Qiqi. And the amount of ER penalty you need to actually hit players so hard is unrealistic. At Vagabond Day 7 Max Score, many steady clear parties were using Zhongli and Jean together with Favonius weapons and that amount of ER penalty there was **brutal**. It is too hard to ever want a "specialized healer" in this game because the current healers are very powerful even at their healing game, on top of doing other things. Bennett for the offensive option, and Jean for the defensive option. Jean having debuff clears with Anemo instead of other elements is just straight up overpowered especially in more and more difficult fights (Vagabond). Her energy cost is also not too steep thanks to her Ascension. Bennett generates lots of particles himself and his burst is very cheap. If you can't heal with Bennett and Jean even with Favonius weapons, you can't heal with **anyone** period. And if you're going to go even worse than Vagabond Day 7 Max Score, every single f2p player in this game will just give up surviving and go all out offense and strive harder to do one rotation kills, like how optimized players can, while whales will just continue 1-shotting everything. Also note that with Raiden now in the picture + Favonius weapons, it's going to be nigh impossible to stop people from generating enough energy for Jean and Bennett if they needed to.


Play_more_FFS

Mihoyo will never allow non active party members die to DoTs so Bennett, Jean and Diona would still be the best. Also players have already dealt with Slowing waters and energy drain spiral abysses with those 3. Unless you’re saying to deactivate Q entirely (which would effect EVERYONE) then nothing changes.


AigisAegis

And that will never happen, because locking every single team comp ever to using one of the three (soon to be four) characters who can heal with their E is horrendous design.


-__l----l_-__

Er penalty lol. Jean diona and Bennett are the best cleansers. Qiqi would still be hot garbage


Upstairs_Archer1427

Idek if this is going to be unpopular but imo hopefully that happens, healers been left out too much in meta, they need to be relevant too


ErikSD

The only way I can see this is that they somehow disable shields, make shields scaling weaker, or convert excessive healing into extra damage. As in stand right now, shields are just too much better than heals


Jfyemch

The number one enemy to healing in this game is actually just timers. You can't use anything but a fire-and-forget healer like Jean or a shielder in abyss because you can't spare the dps loss typically, and in any other environment aside from abyss, you just won't need a dedicated healer, so you can run a support like Bennet or Diona. Barb needs field time to do significant healing outside of her burst, because the tickrate on her aura is slower than molasses and liable to freezing you or getting you vaped/electro-charged. I assume it's similar with Qiqi, but I don't have Qiqi, so can't say for sure.


AliPrimeo

Actually qiqi is a excellent healer the only problem is her not generating any energy and doing nothing else aside from healing


lazerspewpew86

Qiqi doesnt even need much field time, just hit twice and once the mark goes off switch to your main dps to get healed for 10k ticks. If mhy ever made content where massive constant healing was required, qiqi would definitely start seeing play.


KasumiGotoTriss

One new enemy in the next patch ignores shields and causes teamwide bleed (small tho). But shielders will ignore them anyway so.. this won't change much


Ceiphiedo

They tried doing something similiar in Honkai long time ago. What we have now in abyss is bleed mechanic that removes more life the longer you stay in abyss. Technically you should need healer but people still use pure dps characters to clear stage faster before bleed gets annoying. They dont even make pure healer characters in Honkai. Hope they can come up with something more interesting in Genshin.


ACCount82

No. I don't trust Mihoyo to handle "making healers relevant" without fucking shit up. The correct way would be to relax on timed DPS checks and make chambers with hard-hitting enemies - so that your team's survivability matters. The way Mihoyo is going to do it would be adding some floor debuff that deals damage over time and bypasses shield, keeping it in Abyss for 1-2 rotations and then ditching it forever. Or until they want to sell another pure healer for some inane reason. With that, I'd rather see "healer" remain a dead role. Salvaging one crappy role isn't worth making the game worse for every other.


tsuchinoko-real

Yoimiya... 2!


mgd5800

Cul_what

Is it inappropriate? Yes, but is it true? We'll have to see 1 week in to her banner after live testers make her look good or bad with the latter being very likely, unfortunately


PhantomChaser09

To all the people that like her character and animations good luck on your pulls For those bashing on her because she doesn't follow your meta keep it to yourself and don't tell others not to pull for her. U can make your 30 page essays on how to fix her after she comes out
