Ever since the new update, my genshin impact has constantly been freezing my laptop and forcing me to do a hard shutdown. This already happened when I updated to 2.7, but I fixed it with a reinstall of the game. However, the problem reappeared when I updated to the recent version of the game. The game tells me that I have missing files, and I have tried repairing it several times, but the same popup appears when verifying game files. I have updated all my drivers and my windows is up to date. I have already reinstalled again, but the game the still has missing files. I'm at a lost with what I'm supposed to do now, so I'm wondering if there are others that encountered the same or similar problem and what are the fixes that could be done.


SpukyCookiez

Hey, I havent played since the 1.3 patch, have there been any changes to the artifact farming grind or is it still just as bad now as it was then?


KamiAlth

No change but people start learning to live with okay-ish stats. The recent domains are also way more efficient (having both useful set vs. the trash lavalwalker/thundersoother/maiden). These plus the fact that there’s only 2 new characters per patch, it’s kinda work out somehow for end game players.


panda_and_crocodile

It’s still hell on earth, but you can now refund 3 5 star artifacts for a reroll on 4 sets. You don’t have to farm Noblesse Oblige for that reason


dnaimagery97

still bad, but now you got some more artifact sets to choose from


TheGrindPrime

Just as bad.


RickAsley

So i played for like 2 months on release and got to adv rank 29 or so I want to start playing again, is there a guide or something that can recap game info/mechanics e.g questing, domains etc Another question, does adv rank 40 unlocks pretty much everything aside from more domains and bosses?


Sea_Chip-435

u'll need at least ar45 since thats the point u get a guaranteed 5s artifact from domains and only then can u maximize the build of your characters. For the guides, theres pretty much a shit ton of it available online, you can just google it


Mr_Raymann

Just finished interlude chapter: Act 2 Perilous Trail and taking a small break before starting Realms of Guile and War. Are there enough Moonlit Cragstone to buy everything in event shop?


Glum_Claim5133

Yes. There’s always enough to clear out the shop.


CakesXD

Yes. As usual, there's just enough currency to buy out the shop.

What is the best part about anemo units? Is it the damage from swirls or is it the RES decrease from VV shred?


peerawitppr

For me it's the CC, like Venti and Kazuha kind of CC. 4VV is the second best part.


cLuELesS_liKe_AlwAYs

VV shred Dmg from swirls is nice but it’s not like they’re the only units that deal lots of dmg


dnaimagery97

depends on the team, in freeze for example swirl damage is negligible and the VV shred is valuable. in sucrose electrocharged, sucrose/kokomi/xiangling/fischl, jean soup teams, etc. the swirl damage is a big part of the overall team damage


CakesXD

Yes, alongside the utility that Anemo units bring. Grouping up enemies is the main one, but you also can look at EM Sharing (Sucrose), an additional damage boost (Kazuha), Energy regeneration (Venti, only when Burst Swirled with an element for characters of that same element), healing (Sayu/Jean), and so forth.


Alkimert

Hello, my account have been hacked a month ago and the hoyoverse support said that they are gonna give me some information after 20 days of work, last Friday was the 20th day of work since I filled the hacked account form and I've still no news. Did someone had the same problem as me ? And how long did it usually take to recover an account ? Thanks a lot (I'm freaking stressing out to lose 800+hrs of game)


KamiAlth

Check out r/GenshinHacked And unfortunately yes, customer support in this game take awfully long time.


Alkimert

Gosh I notice 😭 thx for recs


Alden_gamerson

I have returned to this game again. What happened?

ThrowawayHabbi

More story. Yelan's been received well.


Migsamu

Hi! Thought I’d check back in since it’s been a few days now! How’s Yelan looking? I have Childe and Ayato with their signature weapons, as well as C6 XQ and Mona but I quite like her design and wouldn’t mind picking up Yelan if she seems to be higher tiers of power!


beef_files

She's the same tier as C6XQ. Better in some cases, worse with...hmm... only HuTao it seems like(and teams that are too squishy, but you can get by if you have no skill issue) She's really fun to play. Has some cool techs as well


dnaimagery97

She's really fun to play in the overworld. not sure yet how meta she is but in my experience she doesn't create any new kinds of teams, instead she makes some existing ones stronger. For instance hu tao xingqiu yelan zhongli is a stronger option of her +double geo and comparable to hu tao vape, xingqiu yelan bennett xiangling is comparable to raiden national and an improvement over other options in single-target, she offers more damage than xingqiu in an electrocharged team, and in some teams with sustained/backloaded damage like with xiao or eula her ramping damage bonus is strong (but isn't necessarily the best option). One limitation is at c0 her hydro isn't as good as xingqiu (due to xingqiu's c6 and his hydro sword aura) and doesn't always reliably enable pyro carries like hu tao or xiangling by herself, so she's not exactly able to substitute for xingqiu everywhere


Kang_Hyewon

Theory Crafters still don't have a full consensus on her power level. But the players reception to her are fairly positive

freakfizz-69

so i am pretty new to genshin, i have played it before when it came out, not much like i completed the dragon mission, then went to liyue did some missions there (archon quests) then i lost the account as it was in mobile and i started playing on my pc, now in my new account i made 1st pull on the featured banner got yelan, razor, noelle on the second beginner's banner and got noelle and kujou sara and i have the 4 starter characters and adv 17 i think i will get xiangling and barbara as they are free characters so what team compostion should i have? main dps, sub dps and support i wa thinking main dps - yelan/razor, sub dps: razor/yelan, sub dps - xiangling and for support/heal/shield - my c2 noelle, would this a good composition or should i look for some other composition i am a f2p btw.


Akomatai

Early game you can pretty much throw any characters together and it'll work. By the time you really need to work on team comps, you'll have a more fleshed out roster


dnaimagery97

yelan razor go well with kaeya, you can occasionally freeze and proc superconduct for razor. Also either c2 noelle and barbara work for healing, but I'd say barbara because you can use thrilling tales of dragon slayer to buff other team members, and she'll be getting good energy from yelan


freakfizz-69

thanks


panda_and_crocodile

This comp is hot garbage as it has little to no synergy and tons of problems like Noelle and Xiangling not going to be able to charge up their burst. **however**, it does not matter one bit. You are way too early in the game to be worrying about these things. You don’t need a good team yet. Just relax and have fun while trying out characters and see who you like. Later in the game you can build proper teams, you’ll have more options then too.


freakfizz-69

thanks


AssaultRider555

Does anyone have any tips or just video footage on how to play Xiao in floor 12 first half of 2.7 Abyss? I just can't seem to get the hang of it.


boutiquecat

for both 12-1 and 12-2, run to the bottom half of the chamber when you start. in 12-1 this will make the whopperflowers all teleport in front of you, and in 12-2 this will make the 3 mitachurls all charge towards you


panda_and_crocodile

Which floor? And what team are you using?


AssaultRider555

Sorry, Floor 12.


panda_and_crocodile

And what team are you running?


AssaultRider555

Xiao, Sayu, Zhongli, Albedo.


panda_and_crocodile

https://youtu.be/D_xJUk2QflM


AssaultRider555

First of all, did you just make video footage?! Second of all, thank you so much.


panda_and_crocodile

Yup did it just now, went with your Childe team


AssaultRider555

Duuuuuuude, that's fucking sick. Thank you so much.


panda_and_crocodile

No problem. I don’t know if you spot it, but Favonius weapons really is the key ingredient here. Look how Zhongli and Sayu ensure very solid Xiao burst uptime because they generate so many particles with Favonius.


panda_and_crocodile

Do you have access to Protoype Amber Sucrose? Would be helpful for grouping. I can do a video if you want, just tell me if you you have access to Protoype Amber Sucrose


panda_and_crocodile

Gotcha, alright give me few minutes. I have C6 Xiao though but I’ll not use any of C6 Xiao’s skills


AssaultRider555

I need Sucrose for my Childe International on Second half.


ninja658

Which is better bw R1 widsith and R2 solar pearl for yae and dps yanfei Not asking which goes on who but asking which is better for each of them


Biscuit1592

Widsith is technically better for both, but I don't like widsith on yae since its kinda awkward to use


SaltyPotato340

Definitely not solar pearl on yanfei. She's charged attack focused and SP doesnt buff charged attacks. For Yae i hesitate to dat widsith due to its rotational issues but i belive it's still the better of the 2


Sea_Chip-435

does yelan work with ganyu charged atk?


ninja658

Read talent description


Sea_Chip-435

aight thank you so fucking much good sir


Im5andwhatisthis

No? Normal attacks only. So you can normal in between charge attacks, but it's not amazing..


Sea_Chip-435

ohh i see, mona is still better then


someone_new32

How and what does someone do till their account can get hacked? The only reasonable way I can see how someone can get their account hacked is by sharing details with others. I do say hoyo security for their customer account is pretty high (email verification, two step authentication etc etc) basically saying you cant get hacked IF you the one in control and if somehow u still get hacked that just mean you part of the problem. But some people said they didnt share their account with anyone but they still get hacked? How is that even possible?


Ptox

As people said Malware is the main concern here even with 2FA, as keyloggers, browser exploits or backdoors can render Mihoyo's 2FA irrelevant. If the attacker gets complete access to your email as well as your Hoyoverse account (through the said malware) they can request a password change and redirect any verification to a new email. Once that is done you've lost control of your account. Apparently it's also not unheard of to set mail rules to direct any Mihoyo notifications to the junk mail, so even if somebody checks their email they never see any indication that they've had their email hacked. Basically it's *really really* important to have 2FA on your email as well as your Genshin account as having both enabled will greatly reduce the risk. This doesn't make you immune since backdoors can bypass device based authentication by using your own computer to send instructions. Social engineering is another method that can bypass 2FA - but I highly doubt it would happen on a large scale.


KamiAlth

Mostly malware.


maxchronostoo

basically what u/Biscuit1592 said. they gave their login details to phishing sites


Biscuit1592

Not having 2FA enabled and clicking random links for optimizers/private servers/free primos etc.


myrngbad

I have seen multiple cases where their device was infected by a virus. A lot of the recent hacked accounts ive seen even had their email changed to a random Russian one


caucassius

most of the time it's social engineering (look it up) + using same passwords on multiple services or inputting their details on shady get free primogems sites or something.


Future-Risk-773

I just want a couple peoples opinions on good teams I can make up and why with these characters… Razor. Fischl. Qiqi. Diluc. Ayaka. Sucrose. Diona. Barbara. Yanfei. Rosaria. Xiangling. Amber. Itto. Noelle. Sayu. Xingqiu. Xinyan. Bennet. Aloy. Ningguang. Chongyun. Kaeya. Beidoe. Lisa.


dnaimagery97

a freeze team (double cryo + hydro+ flex). Freeze is almost always good because of how reliable it is to get the damage off, and how comfortable it is to play. you can do ayaka diona/rosaria barbara sucrose. Diona/rosaria/barbara for sustain and battery, barbara's normal attacks and e aura applies hydro, sucrose for a little grouping, viridescent venerer debuffs, and ttds buffs onto ayaka. Ayaka works very well in freeze because her Q has a lot of damage that would otherwise be missed if the enemies get staggered by the Q electrocharged (2 electro, hydro, flex): very good damage in multi-target scenarios, partly because you don't have to care about repositioning so much because your damage is ranged. you can do with fischl beidou xingqiu sucrose, with sucrose being on-field doing swirls with normal attacks vaporise (pyro dps + hydro): either xiangling bennett xingqiu sucrose or diluc bennett xingqiu sucrose. Diluc is easier to play at earlier levels due to the damage being unconditional, but xiangling is the better long-term investment since she is one of the best dps in the game later on. the idea is to vaporize your pyro damage using xingqiu to apply hydro. for xiangling specifically, the idea is to stack all buffs you have onto her (bennett, ttds, noblesse, instructors, etc.) and use her Q to kill everything


arashizuka

Rosaria, kaeya/chongyun, xiangling, Bennett Sucrose fischl beidou xingqiu Sucrose xingqiu xiangling Bennett Ayaka xingqiu sucrose diona


Savings_Mulberry_302

Ayaka xingqiu sucrose rosaria/diona Ayaka freeze is pretty op against frezzable enemies. Rosaria Kaeya bennet xiangling . Bennet xiangling sucrose xingqiu both of these are great but energy management is a must , which can be a turn off


Future-Risk-773

So I wanna make a team for yanfei (main dps) and I don’t really know what to go with. I wanna take into consideration elemental resonance and characters tht can buff damage. Also a must is a healer….These are the characters I have (assume all are C0) Razor. Fischl. Qiqi. Diluc. Ayaka. Sucrose. Diona. Barbara. Yanfei. Rosaria. Xiangling. Amber. Itto. Noelle. Sayu. Xingqiu. Xinyan. Bennet. Aloy. Ningguang. Chongyun. Kaeya. Beidoe. Lisa.


Biscuit1592

Before c4 yanfei i'd go yanfei/XQ/bennett/diona or Yanfei/XQ/diona/sucrose - having a shield makes playing her much more comfortable. After C4 go yanfei/XQ/bennett/sucrose or yanfei/XQ/bennett/fischl


SaltyPotato340

You could try yanfei xingqiu bennett sucrose. Sucrose for VV and em share, xingqiu for vaporizing, and bennett cuz bennett


Future-Risk-773

I was thinking abt yanfei. xiangling. Sucrose. And sayu. Opinion on this??


SaltyPotato340

Both yanfei and xiangling are energy hungry characters who need a battery. Pure pyro teams don't perform very well aside from a select few, so it'sbest to build a team focused on reaction damage. Sayu doesnt bring much to the team aside from healing since sucrose will have the VV.


httporia

i’m using my pc data to log in on ps4, it tells me i need to input the email linked, so do i put my pc email or the playstation email?


glittermetalprincess

your hoyoverse account email.


cLuELesS_liKe_AlwAYs

Would sac bow be okay for an on field Yelan? Or is fav still better


TheGrindPrime

Fav is still better


beef_files

Fav is better especially for on field since you can't even proc its passive off field


dnaimagery97

sac is ok but fav is generally better. You spend less field time to get the energy, the energy can benefit the rest of the team, and you might not need the second e with the er from the bow and some substats


Dracorvo

Does Yelan's E make you invulnerable, or is she just moving faster so she's less likely to be hit? I didn't get clipped by any enemies in her trial run with her E, but I figure that's not a great example.


SaltyPotato340

Not invulnerable I've bren hit out of it a couple of times


beef_files

>moving faster so she's less likely to be hit This. Plus she's more resistant to interruption so even if you're hit you're less likely to be launched away


itsumo_kid

I play really off and on, and the game's events kind of confuse me. I want to get the free bow from the new Chasm event, but I'm not sure if I can. I've finished the main Liyue story and am AR34, do I really need to get to AR40 and do whatever those character stories are? I've also not been to the Chasm at all since last I played was before its release.


glittermetalprincess

There's a basic mode that lets you enter the event without doing the character stories. The characters will behave as if they met you before. You will need to have opened the Chasm and done most of the exploration in order to access the event, though. You can do that in a day or two of concentrated quest-following.


maxchronostoo

how long do we have left for the event?


glittermetalprincess

The rest of June.


maxchronostoo

nice, just like the enkanomiya event?


glittermetalprincess

Yeah. The Enkanomiya event was in a different map entirely, though, whereas this one is in what's essentially an event domain at the end of the regular Chasm map. Once you finish the archon quest part of it, the combat domain posts up at the end of the Chasm.


itsumo_kid

Appreciate it! This clears things up. Is Chasm okay to do before Inazuma story wise?


glittermetalprincess

Yeah. Newer players going forward will get Liyue-Chasm-Inazuma because it's unlocked at the end of the Liyue archon quest, so perfectly fine to do. But you'll have to do the event in basic mode if you haven't done Inazuma because some of the required story quests are in Inazuma.


itsumo_kid

Awesome, glad to hear. Again, thank you for the responses!


[deleted]

[удалено]


Communistensohn

I actually agree with one other dude here. If you dont have Venti, maybe kazuha can be a safer choice. Mabye.. But if i were you i wouldnt want to miss out on Yelan as well. I dont have kazuha and cannot guarantee him now having pulled yelan, but i dont regret it a bit even if i miss kazuha again. Then again i have venti for cases like the triple rainbow Abyss lectors


dnaimagery97

yes yelan + xingqiu can make very good teams, but if you don't already have venti + sucrose, kazuha is probably a bigger improvement to the account. Plus as you said, you don't really need a second xingqiu. For the electrocharged team you could always run beidou instead of yelan - her Q shield will be quite important for survivability and she does good damage as well


[deleted]

[удалено]


dnaimagery97

imo if you can comfortably 36\* in the forseeable future, no point in getting stronger. go for fun, no regrets


whisperwalk

Kazuha is a must-pull character while yelan is a nice to have so yeah.


Communistensohn

that opinion is kinda outdated


TheGrindPrime

Not a must-pull. Very nice to have sure, but he's not vital to having a great roster. No character is.


aRandomUser95

what team should i use for xiao i have: sucrose,xiangling,razor,barbara,yun jin,noelle,ningguang,sayu,rosaria,diona and yanfei


Liquid_Sawcon

Sucrose is great for anemo particles and crowd control. For the two other characters you could use Diona for shields and healing and Rosaria for cryo application, crit rate buff and off field damage. You would also get cryo resonance, increasing your crit rate


dnaimagery97

sucrose for ttds and energy, diona for shields/healing, rosaria for off-field damage and cryo particles for herself and diona


IsoPhoenix

Is there a tool that shows the various 5 star characters by the last time they had a featured banner? I remember seeing something like this. It can’t find it


Goble_hook

Noelle(c6) Yelan Beidou Fischl. Not ideal but I'm very much fond of them so I wonder if it could work. Noelle being the driver/clutch-healer while everybody else do their dps off-field. Is there anything that I'm suppose to take note of?


Im5andwhatisthis

Yeah it works just fine. Not as strong as using some other drivers instead of Noelle (like Sucrose or Yanfei), but the team still works, and is definitely strong enough to do everything.


dnaimagery97

yes it works well because of beidou fischl and yelan, but as you know noelle isn't the most optimal here compared to an anemo or another hydro unit. if you plan on running noelle on-field, you'll need to find ways to regenerate energy since she doesn't generate much herself. also you won't be using e every rotation since for some reason it is 24s cd


seal_appreciator

Does Ayato's burst buff Xiao's burst, since it's supposedly still normal attacks? I got Xiao by accident and I'm thinking about running a meme team of Xiao, Ayato, Barbara and Zhongli, but I'm stupid when it comes to numbers and Barb's holding TToDS so it's hard for me to see if there's a difference or not.


rainbowbuchi

Xiao's major damage dealer is his plunge attacks and it will outperform any normal attacks you make with Xiao even in his burst mode. Yes it will buff his normal attacks but you would rather perform plunge attacks with Xiao. Do note that the game differentiates between normal, charged and plunge attacks.


seal_appreciator

I see, thanks! For some reason I thought plunge attacks counted as normal attacks. I mostly use swords so I don't have a lot of experience with jumpy characters. RIP my watery dreams then.


rainbowbuchi

No worries! It may not be as efficient or optimal but it's your game so play it however you want. As long as you can clear content no one's stopping you :)


boutiquecat

it only buffs the normal attacks in his burst, not the charge or plunge attacks. if you want to do a meme NA xiao team you need yunjin and you can't plunge


armdaggerblade

how vital is C1 for support yelan?


beef_files

It's good to have but not vital. You can have much better rotations when you have her C1


Communistensohn

Has rather little value if you run her on Fav bow. C1 is good combined with her BiS weapon only imo. Overworld c1 is completely op due to almost indefinite running.


armdaggerblade

ah, i see. guess i'll hold off on it then


dnaimagery97

broken - you can sprint indefinitely getting you across the map in record times /s since c1 allows you to get away with less ER you can afford to drop the fav bow and pick up a damage-focused one (or swap an HP piece in place for an ER piece). However the damage increase might only be 10-20%, whether that's worth is up to you


armdaggerblade

hell yeah, sprint meta ftw. boss cant kill you if you run fast enough lmao was indeed considering easier energy gen in mind, but if she's really good enough with just favonius, enough crit rate & 4pc emblem guess i can live without the extra \~20% damage


TheGrindPrime

Not at all.


armdaggerblade

doesnt assist with her energy gen? or she generates perfectly enough with favonius and 160%++ ER?


Xlegace

It's not vital, it's just useful. Just like how C2 is good, but by no means necessary.


armdaggerblade

i see. guess i'm better off saving my rolls for shinobu then


piubo

Is still worth xiao in 2.7? I dunno if pull for him...


beef_files

Pull? Only if you like him, he's not worth it otherwise. A lot of other characters are stronger than him, a lot more teams are stronger than his teams. You can still clear but if you'd like to have an easier life, get someone else.


Xlegace

You can try him in an actual team in the current event to see if you like his playstyle. It's rather unique.


Whap_Reddit

To add to this, the trial and event have trash loadouts for Xiao. Try not to let his mediocre damage there heavily influence your opinion.


Dracorvo

Only pull if you like him. He's good enough to do everything, but he's not critical.


Whap_Reddit

He's very fun to play and doesn't have issues completing all content with full stars. If you are a meta slave, he's probably not for you.


notafurry9

if you like him


aayaya

What can I do to get a hacked account back ASAP? My little brother account was hacked yesterday. He is sick and had a very long day at the hospital yesterday, when he got back form the hospital looking forward to playing genshin, he found out that his account was hacked. I tried contacting CS but no luck till now. I really need the account back soon as my brother needs the game to relieve the stress from the illness. He is AR 56 and really enjoyed building his characters. He has been crying nonstop since he found out, and this is really the last thing he needs right now. EDIT: we have invoices from past purchases, screenshots from past events showing his UID, and screenshots of wishes showing his UID


Whap_Reddit

Contact customer support. It could take hours or days to get a response. You'll need to be able to provide them some sort of proof that the account was yours. Note: Are you confident it's been stolen or could he have just forgotten his password? You could try going through the "I forgot my password" sequence.


aayaya

We do have proof and screenshots showing his UID, and we contacted them yesterday but no answer from them. Guess we will have to wait longer


TheGrindPrime

Unfortunately theres nothing you can do except wait, or start a new account.


aayaya

I offered him to continue playing using my account but he doesn't love the characters that I have and he is really attached to his characters. We're waiting for the CS to reply but I guess 13 year old boys aren't really good at waiting. Thanks


HayakuEon

Also, tell him to *not* click on shady links promising free primos


aayaya

I'm pretty sure he didn't. As we already purchase them every month and he already has more than enough. We're still trying to figure out how he got hacked.


HayakuEon

Like I said, shady links.


tusharsagar

My Raiden's atk is 1393 without any goblet with wavebreaker's fin, which goblet will she benefit more from, atk or electro dmg ?


dnaimagery97

raiden's hard to calculate since there's so many sources of dmg% bonus, but in general if you have many other atk buffs (like bennett), electro becomes better but without, atk is better.


Dracorvo

Usually comes down to substats and teammates. If you have ATK buffers on the team, go with electro unless your ATK goblet has way better stats.


ninja658

U would probably benefit the most with er sands and atk goblet


zdogiez

Hello, is emblem the BiS artifact for Yelan? If I run double hydro, will 2pc tenacity plus 2 pc HOD be better? (I’m running her with Hu Tao, Xq, Zhongli)


weeaboo37

Not really the gap small in fact my 2no+2hod is better than my emblem set, in general use wich has better substat


EUWannabe

Yes 4 Emblem is BiS.


ninja658

Still emblem

The seelie that’s meant to spawn at mouun shrine compass puzzle disappeared for me. Has this happened to anyone else and do u know how to fix it?

TenaciousBemusement

Can someone explain why a 1:2 ratio of crit rate to crit damage is ideal? Isn't it best to raise crit rate as close to 100 as possible and have as much crit damage as possible?


gogoandcomecome

Is all about damage output expectations. If you compare 60CR+200CD and 80CR+100CD, then of course higher CR is better. But when talking about balancing CR and CD, a lot times you have to sacrifice one stats for another. So you have to calculate the damage expectations as other guys suggests.


caucassius

balancing act though it's not be all end all rule. you want higher crit rate for eula for example.


Provalist

In addition to what everyone else said, the 1:2 ratio is actually kind of built into the game itself. Circlets give 31.1% CR or 62.2% CD. Max CR substat roll is 3.9, and 7.8 for CD. Same with weapon stats, character ascension, etc.


TenaciousBemusement

That's the part that I didn't know. Thank you for not just replying "math " 😅


Ptox

Just to add to it, if Mihoyo put a rate of 1:3 CR to CDMG (e.g. gave 93.3 CDMG on a circlet), then that would be the optimal rate. If they put 1:1 that would be the optimal crit ratio. Why its optimal is the whole maths part other people have been mentioning which I won't go into. But it falls under the concept of mathematical optimization.


ninja658

Math


dnaimagery97

yes as high crit as possible is what you should aim for. but if you can only have a set number of crit rolls, it's optimal that they're distributed 1:2. the increase in damage due to crit is 1+cr\*cd, which means the % damage bonus due to crit increases by cr% per point of cd, and cd% per point of cr. but a cd roll is two times the amount of a cr roll. so if your cr:cd ratio is less than 1:2, (lets say 1:1.5), the cr:cd roll value ratio is 1.5:2 \[a cr roll will have a relative value of 1.5 (cd) and a cd roll as a relative value of 2\*1 (2\*cr)\] if your cr:cd ratio is more than 1:2, (for example 1:3), the cr:cd roll value is 3:2 \[a cr roll has a relative value of 3, a cd roll has a relative value of 2\*1 (2\*cr)\] at 1:2 cr:cd ratio, the value of a cr vs. cd roll is equal


xess

It's just plain math. 50x100 is larger than 20x160.

average damage from crit is CR \* CD, and the best way to maximise the product is to distribute your stat budget evenly between the two. the game gives you crit stats in a 1:2 ratio, so when evenly investing in both you will get this ratio note that 1:2 is only about the best way to distribute a set amount of crit value between CR and CD. when comparing two builds, the one closer to 1:2 isn't automatically better if the two have different CV

Thank you for your detailed explanation!

I've been binge watching random Yelan clips and guides, and I see people running Yelan with Xingqiu. Cool. But why do some people use Yelan's burst first and then Xingqiu's? Why not the other way around, since Xingqiu's burst last longer?


Communistensohn

I wouldnt use Yelan burst before Xingqiu. This can lead to mismanagement for yelans Cooldown due to hers being 18s and Xingqius 20s and his E 21s. If you dont time gate your yelans after Xq, you may use yelan too early and miss out of all of her buff.


LucasFrankeRC

Probably to take advantage of Yelan's dmg% buff. It starts at 1% and go all the way up to 50% Part of using Yelan properly is learning how her burst fits exactly on your rotation. You don't want to wait too much before switching to your main because then her burst will end too soon, but you don't want to go from her burst to your main immediately either because then he won't benefit from the buff as much as he could. You want to time it so your main's field uptime matches exactly with the last seconds of her ult


ninja658

I personally use xingqiu before Han yelan coz of that reason, (also another reason being that yelan does more DMG than xingqiu and the one using their burst first will end up losing some burst hits so it's better for xingqiu to lose hits than yelan)


d2dqd2q2dq2d

because Xingqiu's E will regenerate more energy than Yelan's E, especially if Xingqiu uses Sacrificial.


caucassius

you can go xq burst -> xq skill -> yelan burst and get all the benefit of higher burst time and energy still if you're fast enough.


d2dqd2q2dq2d

Then Yelan will be the one collecting the particles and not Xingqiu.


caucassius

yes, that's part of the freaking point lol. you can now focus ER on XQ and less on Yelan in favor of more offensive stat since her burst is more damaging than XQ.


WinxForceWiz

Yelan's burst gives a ramping damage buff. By using her first, you get quicker to the maximum damage buff. Doing it the other way around might make the highest damage buff trigger after your carry time ends (Like Hu Tao's skill).

\[solved\] - I have 2 general questions, ​ 1. does Genshin Impact Mobile share the same servers as other platforms? In other words, if I'm playing with mobile, can I co-op with someone who plays on PC? 2. \[mobile platform\] Is there a quick way to switch to a character that isn't in the party (sort of like replacing the current character in the party)? Or is there at least a quick way to switch/deploy parties?


Glum_Claim5133

1) Yes 2) The fastest way is to hold one of your character’s icon on the right hand side of the screen, then you can switch teams from there.


Hot-Ad-9225

Thank you! The tip on how to switch a party is super useful! 🙏


kisscargo

For Q1 yes u can

That's not the patch update reward... It was compensation for an issue where they said the minimum AR for the event would be 28 but it was actually 40 in game. Only AR 28-39 players were affected by it.


Hot-Ad-9225

How can I learn how to build my character? Artefacts, suitable weapons etc. When I look up google, all I found are best builds, but the artefact sets aren't unlockable until my Adventurer Rank is 25+ or 30. For example, if I want to build Beidou, what should I look for to recognise which of the artefact sets I have unlocked is good on her? ​ Edit: wow! Thanks a lot for the rapid and helpful answers! This was my first question in this community and didn't expect to get an answer so fast!


IfZ3nElse

Early game, use whatever 4-star artifact set you can get your hands on from chests and elite monsters. 2pc Berserker is good for any damage-dealer, so is 2pc Gladiator (assuming your character scales from atk, of course, which is the default). 4pc Wanderer is a bit niche, but you can use it on Yanfei for example. 4pc Instructor is pretty potent for a support, assuming you are using reactions. 4pc The Exile is good for a support as well. 2pc The Exile can be used by anyone caring about their burst. Make sure the main stat is the correct one, at least on your damage dealers. For damage dealers, you usually want an atk% sands (or whatever they scale from), a dmg bonus goblet of the right type (their element or, in some cases, physical), and a crit rate or crit dmg circlet (preferably crit rate since you start with 5% crit rate and 50% crit dmg). Early game, you can use an atk% goblet and/or an atk% circlet. Supports can use the stat they scale from on all 3 pieces, although healers can also use a healing bonus circlet instead, and an ER sands is often recommended. (Note: Flower and Feather pieces have fixed main stats of HP and atk respectively). At AR45, start farming lvl 90 artifact, they guarantee at least one 5-star per 20 resin spent (with a low chance for a 2nd one).

boutiquecat

artifact sets don't matter much until AR45, at your level just equip whatever has suitable main stats for the character. you can read the character's skill descriptions to see what stats are important for them or refer to the google sheet linked by the comment below


Hot-Ad-9225

Thank you!


International_You_56

If you don't like to rely on guides, just read carefully the character talents. Usually u don't bother about artifacts until ar45, before that just use whatever you have


Hot-Ad-9225

Thanks!


Biscuit1592

Pre ar45 you can just use random purple artifacts, for dps you can use atk% on the circlet/sands/goblet. Once you hit ar45 you unlock the highest level domains which guarantee 1 5\* artifact per run, thats when you start grinding for specific sets and can follow guides.


Hot-Ad-9225

I see multiple comments mentioning that pre AR45 it's not important to worry about Artifact. Just curious, why AR45 specifically?


Biscuit1592

Thats when you unlock lvl 90 domains, the highest possible. They guarantee 1 5\* artifact per run. The lvl 80 domain is a 33% chance for a 5\* i believe. So its just way more efficient - especially if you save all your fragile resin until then.


Hot-Ad-9225

Ok, I get it. Thank you!


effektglitter

Don’t worry too much about artifacts at this point. Just use what you have and look for atk% stats. If you have a crit circlet or a electro dmg goblet that’s great, too! Read the set effects and use things that give you more atk but if the stats of random pieces are better there is no need to force a set effect.


Hot-Ad-9225

That's kinda what I'm doing, but I feel like my characters are weak sometimes and was wondering if it's just me building them wrong. Is it normal that it takes me too long to kill monsters that are like 10 levels below my character level?


effektglitter

Probably not. What weapon are you using and did you level up the random artifacts you have on Beidou?


Hot-Ad-9225

I was referring to different characters in my second comment, Noelle and Lumine. This is my build for Noelle: * Level: 40 * Weapon: Bloodtainted Greatsword (level 20, rank 3) * Artefact Set: Berserker (5-piece) * Constellation: *Nothing activated* Not sure if that's how build/stats should be shared, but I'm open to learn :))


effektglitter

If you want to keep using Noelle and like her, I‘d recommend crafting the Whiteblind claymore for her at the blacksmith. Because Noelle scales off defense. You should have a claymore billet or be able to buy one from the souvenir shops. Also, always level your weapons up! If your character can be level 40, the weapon should be as well.


Hot-Ad-9225

Will try that out and notice the difference. Thanks a lot for the help!


effektglitter

You’re welcome! Have fun :)


arashizuka

Look at KQM page for guides. It's more reliable than other resources usually.


Hot-Ad-9225

Thanks for the resource !


TenaciousBemusement

YouTube videos have been tremendously helpful for building my characters. There are a lot of guides on there.
