Um I really don't know where I'm supposed to post this, but I have an issue with my genshin its on the warning screen and I cant get out of it I don't know why but can some one help me


ejmongy21

Chuyi at the yansheng teahouse is no longer rude ash


CibaiGayGay

Yelan 2pc HoD 2pc TotM vs 2pc HoD 2pc NO vs 4 pc emblem


ihei47

Can someone tl;dr the Yelan 1u vs 1.5u for casual players or in Razor language? And it's relation to C6 Xingqiu


LegessaLynx

Man i really want keqing, i really hope i get her on yoimiya/kazuha banner. Its been almost 2 years


Crowburst953

What sort of weapon designs that will come outa Sumeru are you guys hoping for? I'm kinda hoping for either a Khopesh or a Scimitar.


ConsolesQuiteAnnoyMe

FYI to everyone including you, but new Megathread dropped.


Crowburst953

Gotcha


rinatrix

Is it true that no catalyst has ICD on their charged attacks (or have I dreamed that)?


hydropyrotechnic

According to the wiki, all Catalyst CAs have ICD, but for all Catalyst users besides Yae, Sucrose, Ningguang, and Kokomi, the ICD reset is 0.5 seconds which basically means no ICD since it takes over 0.5 seconds before you can perform your next CA anyway. EDIT: I'm currently testing this out. I think it might be the reverse - Yae, Sucrose, Ningguang, and Kokomi have 0.5 ICD with their CAs while the others normal ICD. EDIT 2: Okay, I tested this out with Barbara, Mona, and Kokomi - all of them vaporized two subsequent CAs on a burning enemy. So either all Catalysts have no ICD on their CA or the ICD reset is really short.


juli0909

Do you think the release of Sumeru/dendro will compete with each other in terms of character priority? Is HYV more likely to rush out a bunch of dendro characters to pad out the meta (Baizhu and Yaoyao) or focus on releasing Sumerian characters? In summary I want Baizhu ASAP


hydropyrotechnic

I doubt it. What I think they'll do with Baizhu and Yaoyao is release them during the next Lantern Rite, which would allow them to add more Dendro characters during a time where they wouldn't be focusing on Sumeru characters anyway. I also don't think Mihoyo is going to care about adding a ton of Dendro characters ASAP anyway. If anything, having the Dendro Archon be one of the few Dendro options available upon her release will probably help her sales by a lot.


ConsolesQuiteAnnoyMe

Remember that Dendro Traveler will exist, as much as that may or may not matter. All I can say is it's yet another Traveler I have to 9/9/9, but at least I got caught up on the other three already.


VaronaZero

1/8/8 for me, they're not doing NAs much


ConsolesQuiteAnnoyMe

But I am, of course, fixin' to 9/9/9 everyone so that is how that is.


VaronaZero

Understandable, have a great day


PrinceBkibo

Yup, since we don’t know anything about these chars, and I doubt we’ll get 4 Dendros I like immediately, this is the perfect time to finally work on my Aether. I’m hoping for an at least decent kit so I have an excuse to pull him off the bench.


Junior_Importance_30

Is it possible that hoyo might "postpone" sumeru from 3.0 to some other update? Just wondering, and serious answers only this time please.


VentusSaltare

If they want to maximize profit, it shouldn't, but one patch prior to it might get shortened/rearranged to get back on their roadmap (whatever it was)


FortressCaulfield

Possible. Unlikely tho. Something as big as a whole region will have had to be in development a long time.


zhivix

no? unless china seriously fuck up and the whole nation is in lockdown again , which i doubt , sumeru will definitely comes in 3.0 , since it falls on their 2nd anniversary


nguyendragon

that makes no sense though, sumeru patch will be 3.0, doesn't matter if it comes after 2.8, 2.9 or 2.145


rysto32

Whatever release contains Sumeru will be called 3.0. I suppose in theory they might not release it immediately after 2.8 and instead do a filler 2.9, but it would likely take some kind of development disaster for them to delay like that.


hydropyrotechnic

I doubt it. The release of new nations is the backbone of Genshin right now. It keeps current players playing, creates an entry point for old players to return, and makes the game even more appealing for new players.


ConsolesQuiteAnnoyMe

Gee, I thought the backbone of this game was farming a mountain of useless Artifacts.


Junior_Importance_30

so then if 3.0 is sumeru, we HAVE to get the concept art in 2.8 or 3.0's stream right? if not then, then what?


hydropyrotechnic

Yes, and we'll probably get the concept art in 2.8/3.0's stream. A likely reason why Inazuma was teased earlier is because Mihoyo was founded around otaku culture, and so it makes sense for a Japan-inspired nation to be more hyped by the company and by players. However, I feel like you're already convinced they're going to postpone Sumeru, and so there's not really anything I can say to make you believe otherwise. (Also, if a severe city-wide lockdown only delayed Mihoyo by three weeks, I doubt Sumeru is going to make them go off their schedule. The ethos of software companies like Mihoyo is generally "get the job done by the deadline, no matter how much overtime it takes". Otherwise, they're going to lose a ton of money.)


Junior_Importance_30

I'm not convinced, just worried.


hydropyrotechnic

You honestly have no reason to worry. It's pretty much a given that Mihoyo will release 3.0/Sumeru at the expected time (sometime in late August).


[deleted]

[удалено]


sad_cats

Yes. I dont think they will release dendro until i actually see it


LeSnipper

I swear to god if we somehow enter sumeru without having dendro im gonna riot. It could technically happen because they never actually said dendro will come with 3.0, we might wait till the dendro archons release


DragonsVane28

Bruh how do we still not know which half 2.8 will have Heizou? It took us no time at all to learn that Yelan and Kuki would be on the first and second phase of 2.7 respectively. The fact that there’s a very real possibility of him landing on a solo Klee banner fills me with fear. I love the little arsonist as much as the next guy, but I already have her and she’s the only limited 5* that I’ve completely stopped using.


ConsolesQuiteAnnoyMe

Heizou on Solo Yoimiya is the threat to me.


FortressCaulfield

Whereas it's my only hope


ElFlolemo

Do you think that we'll see Nahida model tomorrow for the beta update ?


theonetruekaiser

All of r/Nahida_Mains hope so


EducationalPangolin2

Pray intern kun accidentally makes a mistake


needstochill

Quick, everyone gaslight intern kun into forgetting which timezone he's in so he posts it early


Todorokill

If it’s blocked out, it’s on purpose so i don’t see them reverting it


ElFlolemo

Why is she in the files ? The testers must test the story quest. But yeah maybe we will need to wait for the 2.8 to see her


Todorokill

Probably because she’s in the story but there’s nothing to rly test. Could be wrong but idk if there will be anything to test for a model just appearing in a quest


DeltaForcePlayer

Yesn't


ConsolesQuiteAnnoyMe

There was a leak about Amber and Sucrose getting Wonderland themed costumes. How do you think the monetization would end up going if that turns out true? I'm inclined to bet that if they debut together and aren't squared off with a 5\* character's costume then they'd probably both be available from the event but you can only pick one as a gimme somewhat akin to how the Seelie pets work.


lifeofatrash

maybe you can pick one for free and buy the other one. i feel like theyd definitely add a way to get both but not necessarily for free.


needstochill

Pick one and have the other be paid,,, less cruel than the seelies but still fucks over f2ps who want both


ConsolesQuiteAnnoyMe

Provided there's no 5\* character paid-only skin involved in a certain lens it'd actually be less harsh than the current distributions.


Medical-Definition75

That would be evil.


sad_cats

Diluc's skin have an effect that makes him better Imagina a skin that makes amber actually good. I would die


Odd-Communication187

In what case is Yelan better than a C6 Xinqiu? Im originally planning to pull for Kazuha but thinking about farming for VV convinces me to just pull for Yelan.


needstochill

If she's the only hydro in the team she's good with anyone who can't vape quickly, like Yoi and Diluc. Possibly Rational, too.


statemandatedcatgril

Raiden-Yelan-Ben-Kaz/VV is maybe the new best Raiden team. XQ+Yelan together is also good with Raiden/HT because they lower each other's ER reqs and XQ shreds res for Yelan. Not a lot of cases where you'd get much from swapping them 1 for 1 but the new teams are looking really strong.


flamealchemist73

Do you think Yelan will be stronger than C6 Sara?


Sila2Doo

That team is better for single target but Hyper Raiden with c6 Sara still better with 2 target and more.


statemandatedcatgril

According to pre-TC (they could cut her stats in half and give her a funny hat on release who knows) she's stronger up to 2 targets, and C6 Sara starts to get overtake her at 3 or 4 targets and up.


snacku_wacku

Yoimiya, Diluc, anywhere where the hydro can’t be overtaken because they have worse application, her higher personal damage and buff will be a lot stronger. Double Hydro And she completely scales off HP so it’s reasonable that Mihoyo will pidgeonhole Hydro as the HP element (Kokomi, Ayato, Yelan, overdose) so it’s reasonable to say that she’ll probably get more support than Xingqiu, in the same way Ningguang got nothing as she doesn’t “fit” with the other Geos


sweettbubbles

Any predictions about how many primos we can get between now and 3.0? Welkin and BP included


hydropyrotechnic

94 days until August 24 * 150 primos a day (Welkin + BP) = 14100 2.7 Delay Compensation = 400 2.7 Compensation + 2.8 Livestream + 2.8 Compensation + 3.0 Livestream + 3.0 Compensation (300 primos each) = 1500 That’s already 16000 primogems/100 wishes. Then there’s: 2.7 Events (600 + 420 + 420 + 420) = 1860 2.8 Events Estimation (600 + 420 + 420 + 420) = 1860 2.7 Battle Pass (680 primos + 4 Intertwined Fates) = 1320 2.8 Battle Pass (680 primos + 4 Intertwined Fates) = 1320 Spiral Abyss (assuming 36* each cycle) = 3600 Stardust Shop (assuming you can buy out all 5 Intertwined Fates) = 2400 Test Runs (assuming Kazuha/Klee/Yoimiya in 2.8) = 120 Daily Log-in (assuming you log in enough days to get all the primogem rewards) = 180 That’s another 12660 primogems/almost 80 wishes. So you should expect to get 28660 primogems/almost 180 wishes total before 3.0.


sweettbubbles

Thank you for breaking it down, this is really useful!


SqaureEgg

Headcannon: Fischl’s isn’t actually a Chuunibyou, she actual does have godly powers, creating this new version of GA for fun


needstochill

If she does have reality-bending powers, I think it's really funny she manifested a talking bird to translate her speeches, only to give him character traits such as butler and b e a n


SqaureEgg

Bean?


needstochill

In one of her character stories, Oz shows up to join her and her parents at dinner and goes ["Ah, mein Kaiser und Kaiserin der Verurteilung, forgive mine overstep, but the beans in your house are too delicious."](https://genshin-impact.fandom.com/wiki/Fischl/Lore)


StrangeDelight

Fischl is the personification of every single person that has ever listened to Mitski.


onetrickponySona

a lesbian??


Shippinglordishere

Omg reminds me of when my friend’s roommate correctly guessed that my friend was queer when they were talking about music because her playlist was so gay. Mitsuki was one of them.


josephh_ie

Shot in the dark but did they include Lorde, LDR, Marina, Phoebe Bridgers, etc...


Shippinglordishere

I got told the story of how it happened and mitsuki was the only example they gave


Vapore0nWave

feeling very called out by both of these comments bye💀


ijustwannanap

forgive me if this is wrong since i don't keep up with the leaks but isn't diluc's skin supposed to be based off his kfc outfit? are mhy expecting people to pay $40 just to see diluc in an apron and potentially saying 'here's your order'?


ionosode

Diluc’s kfc skin doesn’t even have a high ponytail, so no it’s not


ConsolesQuiteAnnoyMe

I mean if they're expecting that they're not wrong. Not everyone will, but it'll still sell enough to be satisfactory, I'm sure.


itstai1

Considering I don't have any 5 star bows, do you think aqua simulacra would be good on Kujou Sara or Fischl?


Arxis_Two

No on Sara since it has nothing for her, for Fischl it's probably good, CV is obviously great but since her E snapshots I think you'll need to be near enemies for the passive to work. That'll probably require some testing to see exactly how it works out but I imagine it'll be pretty good.


itstai1

I mean isn't 44 the highest amongst 4 star bows? I don't have a 5 star one at the moment and might not get one in the future. I use sac bow on her right now, not sure if the er substat is worse or better than crit. Also maybe i will pull for ganyu in the future so maybe the bow will be useful there.


Landshark34

At level 90, Aqua has 542 while Sac has 565 and a beneficial substat


snacku_wacku

Low base attack so no for Sara


itstai1

I mean isn't 44 the highest amongst 4 star bows? I don't have a 5 star one at the moment and might not get one in the future. I use sac bow on her right now.


Gentlekrit

Still a higher base attack than 4 star bows, so good for her if 4 stars are the only other bows you have


knkeer

Doesn't Aqua Simulacra have 542 ATK at level 90? If that is the case, Sac, Mouun and new event bow overtake it.


SolidCryptographer86

i still can’t fathom how brilliant 2.6 has been for my account. here’s a little storytime. - saved up for ayato on a 50/50, but i also wanted venti super badly since i started playing just after his first rerun banner. i have horrible luck on 50/50s so i basically prepared myself for the worst possible outcome (a keqing con). - i ended up winning the 50/50 on ayato, it took about 45 pulls to get him. i was left with around 10000 primos. said fuck it and wished on venti’s banner. - lost the 50/50 on venti to mona. now usually that would be considered a bad thing, but mona happened to be the only standard character i didn’t have. i was actually ecstatic, but my yearn for the cute green boy continued. - did a few singles out of desperation on venti’s banner. lo and behold, i got him 9 pulls after mona. literally lost my marbles on that day, screamed so loud my mum (a deep sleeper) woke up. - so i got the characters, and i had a lvl 90 black sword waiting for ayato. however something about me is when i have a favourite character, i feel the urge to get their weapon too if i have the primos for it. i want to get the best i can, ideally without opening my wallet. as of rn i’m saving for redhorn for itto, but i really, really wanted ayato to be great. - i made up my mind after seeing my primo count that i’d wait for ayato’s rerun to snatch haran, especially because it felt too niche for my account at that moment in time. i decided i’d wait for mistsplitter. THEN the mistsplitter banner leaks came along. - i was not willing to go through the pain of losing to the unforged. i still cannot believe how awful of a banner that was. despite having a copium use for unforged since i use eula, itto and zhongli, i have an r5 serpent spine and a skyward pride. once again i said fuck it and wished on the haran elegy banner out of pain. - my luck fucked me over once again and i got an elegy. i almost cried. however there were only 5 days until the mistsplitter banner. i wanted ayato to be amazing. i wouldn’t let anything get in the way of a 12k slashes without buffs. - i did it. i wished on the mistsplitter banner. set the fate thingy asap cause i had zero hope that i wouldn’t end up with an unforged, or even worse, a THIRD skyward harp (i have one lvl 90 on childe, the second is waiting for c6 sara, and i use em stringless venti.) but i prevailed. i ended up getting mistsplitter and avoiding unforged altogether. again, my mother shot out of bed thinking someone robbed our house. - a bonus: i am a yanfei main who’s been slowly trying to get her build the best i possibly can. i’d been running her on dodoco for a while because i only had an r1 widsith. i managed to get an r5 widsith cause of my impulse pulling. - another bonus, got c6 sucrose. although i use kazuha religiously, it feels good to have sucrose and now, having c6 beidou and c6 xingqiu too, i can build a comp i’m so curious about, sucrose taser. now this is not a testimony for impulse pulling. do NOT be like me kids, but after so much unluckiness 2.6 felt like a huge blessing. you could call it a filler patch but the irodori festival is one of my favourite events so far cause of interactions alone, and vibro crystal had no business being that fun.


Ohaithere3

2.6 was extremely godly for me as someone who doesnt even consistently buy welkins. I only had about 30 pulls saving for Kazuha rerun in 2.8 but i decided to chuck a few pulls into ayato banner cause i wanted some yunjin cons and 13 pulls in i lose 50 50 to mona then i decided to chuck some pulls onto the weapon banner for a chance to get elegy then 3 pulls in i got it then later i decided to pull more for DB refines and 5 pulls later i get haran. Decided to save the entirety of this patch's primogem count for kazu. On Ayaka's banner, i really wanted Rosaria cons and chucked 20 pulls, getting 2 Ayakas back to back then i just used the rest of the patch's pulls and low and behold, a c4 ayaka in about 70 or so pulls then i chucked whatever left into mistsplitter and now i have 2 mistsplitter for Bennet and Ayaka!! Really hope i get this luck on Kazuha's banner!!


SolidCryptographer86

wishing you luck for the pretty anemo boy!!


Shippinglordishere

same here. I’ve literally lost every single 50/50 to Qiqi after 80 pity so I saved up my guaranteed for Ayato. I got Ayato and had enough for another 5 star and I won my 50/50 for Venti. Then, I decided to pull for Ayato and won another 50/50. Then, I tried to go for Ayaka and lost the 50/50 to Jean at around 10 pity and then pulled Ayaka. I also pulled Diluc on standard.


SolidCryptographer86

congrats, i’m happy for you :)))))


hydropyrotechnic

This is how I feel about 2.6, too. I had enough to get Ayato, Venti, and Ayaka even if I lost all of their 50/50s. - Got Ayato on his 50/50 - Got Jean but I didn’t have her so I was fine with that - Got Ayato C1 because I accidentally pulled on the wrong banner… I was freaking out that this would set back my savings - Won Venti’s 50/50… my savings were safe - Won Ayaka’s 50/50… now I had extra pulls for Sumeru I also got WGS from standard, C6 Yun Jin, C6 Sucrose, and my first Sayu :)


SolidCryptographer86

wooowww! c6 yunjin is next on my complete 4star list! i’ve wanted wgs for so long but mhy keeps giving me standard weapons i have no use for :(


ConsolesQuiteAnnoyMe

I on the other hand just strongarmed Venti into my retinue through a Qiqi dupe and am somewhat safe for but not assured to claim Yelan due to the delay. Sure would be nice to hit the coin flip so that I have a lead on the next Bow Impact (not counting any reruns since everyone who exists right now is accounted for) or at least miss it to Jean, but either Keqing or Mona will catch up to Dillick and Qiqi or Dillick or Qiqi will increase their lead. Everything sucks forever, so it has to be this way.


SolidCryptographer86

dude. have some faith.


ConsolesQuiteAnnoyMe

Faith tends to lead to disappointment.


getsetredditgo

Can feel your ecstasy bruhh congrats!!! I wish i could do some luck on Xiao's banner, have to win 50/50 for Kazuha if i pull him. Losing 50/50 for Xiao would guarantee Kazuha but i will be in deep pain since he's my favorite husbando. So, i hope the situation turns out like yours lol


SolidCryptographer86

thank you so much! wishing you luck on your pulls for xiao and kazuha!


levi_fucking_heichou

No clue how I ended up following someone with notifications on who was somehow a separate account to Uncle Fish Touching... I only have notifications on for two accounts, Genshin's EN page and Fish Toucher. Oh well, maybe a glitch or a misunderstanding. Don't care enough to find out more _(:3」L)_


sad_cats

Unpopular opinion: i dont care much for freedom sworn and thundering pulse. Yoimiya is not bad, but we have better dpses and kazuha can do well enough woth iron point i guess


Sila2Doo

Comment be like talking about TP being a good bow while ignoring that Aqua bow, which basically a Homa bow, is in the next patch. If anyone wanna a good 5 star bow, Aqua would be the better choice.


Star_Vs_Las_FFEE

>Homa bow I disagree, it gives HP but no HP to ATK bonus so that part is useless on most characters, has low Base ATK (like jade cutter but again without the hp to atk bonus). And most importantly the dmg bonus is conditional on distance, overall it's not bad but I wouldn't call it a homa bow.


Sila2Doo

Is there any comp that isn't needing us to sticking close to enemy? Even melt ganyu is in melee range anyway. And the passive still works even onfield.


Star_Vs_Las_FFEE

Fair point, I was considering a more generalist scenario with coop/overworld included. In abyss you probably wouldn't have problems keeping the buff.


statemandatedcatgril

Yeahhhh FS is kinda overrated, it not even the 33EM upgrade people think because unless you hunt for subs on your VV set you're running FS/IS with ER/EM/EM or Fav Sword with EM/EM/EM. Compared to the latter that's trading Fav particles for 12 EM, 20%ATK, and a passive that only Ayato and HT (who isn't as receptive to the ATK) can really use. I still think they'll seperate it from the decent stat stick bow because they know people think it's really good and the point of the weapon banner is to make people miserable and scam them while they're down


sad_cats

But, like, the other option is to run tp with a really good catalyst (for klee) so idk...... i dont think yoimiya can carry a solo banner like ayaka did But neither does klee so.......


statemandatedcatgril

I mean SA and LP are both on standard and DPS catalysts are kind of in shambles rn because the support options are too good. TP+Skyward/Lost seems seems pretty likely IMO?


zorafae

To be fair, thundering pulse is good on a lot of bow DPS, not just Yoimiya. But I already have a polar star to fill that purpose, so TP is easy skip for me personally. Otherwise it'd be a good value weapon I think. Freedom-sworn is great for buffing teammates, I wouldn't roll on that alone though. Could always run that iron sting or just fav sword to reduce teammate ER needs.


sad_cats

Who else would use it? Childe? I have amos for ganyu, and i dont have child so i guess it is a skip for me


zorafae

All the DPS bow users (except Venti) use it well. Might not be the case for Yelan, though. For freeze Ganyu it's better than amos, too. Obviously if you have other as good / similar strength options already it's not worth, though, but that goes for all of the weapons.


ConsolesQuiteAnnoyMe

Freedom-Sworn is a niche weapon that people only care about because everyone is nuts about the character it is niche for.


y8man

Don't worry. Even yoimiya mains are very well aware of her flaws ^(that's me) But imagine Skyward Harp being a great standatd statstick. TP is **the statstick** for bows, and is a great generalist option.


sad_cats

I dont have childe and i have amos for ganyu so i guess tp has not much appeal to me


alceste007

I can see your point. While freedom sworn and thundering pulse are both good, they are not Homa or Mist splitter levels of great. This is the reason I believe that Hoyo is okay with putting them together on a banner. The banner will be nice for those who not have enough wishes to guarantee their chosen weapon.


PrinceBkibo

I’m not sure why people dismiss this combo as too good to happen. There are a lot of competive 5 star bows that I don’t think Thundering Pulse is broken compared to other options, and Freedom Sworn isn’t really BIS on most non Kazuha characters either. Maybe Jean and Anemo Traveler (lol)? There are way stronger universal swords. It would be a good banner but not a straight up broken one. Now I still don’t have a lot of hope that we’ll see this lineup, but it’s not because this combo is “too good.”


sundriedrainbow

"Too good to happen" is a weird artifact that keeps hanging around. Some weapon banners are trash, it's true, and the bar for weapon banners is a lot higher than it is for character banners bc of the risk involved, but even as far back as 1.3 we had double jade banner then homa+WGS. They're not afraid to put two good weapons next to each other.


vukaiene

I don't care about those weapons cause I don't have the primos to get them lol


Todorokill

Tp is hype for everyone else tbh, just a good bow


uh_oh_hotdog

I don’t have Yoimiya but I’d pull on that banner to get TP for my Ganyu and Childe. I wouldn’t normally try to get Freedom Sworn, but it’s a good enough consolation prize that I wouldn’t mind getting it while I chase a good bow.


Dragoncat_3_4

Damn. First character I ever prefarmed for and I'm skipping her... Sorry Yelan, there's a possibility of a TP + FS weapon banner and I have to pull Grass Jesus and the local angry purple man after that. ~~Edit: oh wow, a single minute after I post this contradictory information appears. Ok then, angry purple man~~ *~~and his weapon, whatever that banner ends up being~~* ~~instead of Yelan~~


[deleted]

I'm in a similar position as well! I already have good artifacts for her and skipping her puts them to waste which is painful. I can guarantee either weapon and Kazuha but pulling Yelan poses a risk on that ;\_;


uh_oh_hotdog

Did that new post get deleted? I don’t see anything about that.


Dragoncat_3_4

Yea, it lasted for about 6 minutes and was probably fake so, my og statement still stands apparently.


Medical-Definition75

Angry purple man is crazy hat dude/doll?


Dragoncat_3_4

None other than the Scary moose himself!


lifeofatrash

ive got a terrible confession. i got the 2000 fish achievement like. in the same patch where fishing dropped. i just found it so fun to do while listening to true crime videos. though i havent done it in a long time since ive got other games that im playing and i cant really justify sinking time into it anymore since theres nothing to work towards. any other fishing enjoyers in the chat? :')


AnAsianDudeInReddit

I did that achievement because I had nothing to do in the game back then. I got every fish in every spot. Cycling throughout day and night, not leaving a single fish in the water. Even the one on Jueyun Karst and Dragonspine. Then I wait 3 days for the fish to respawn again. After I got the achievement. I said to myself. No more. (I did this before enkanomiya released, so I don't have new fishes from enka)


hydropyrotechnic

I agree, I’m at ~1250 fish and it’s really nice to fish in Genshin while watching YouTube. It doesn’t require any resin and it’s pretty mindless.


y8man

Absolutely same lol I immediately flexed that 2k fish namecard in that patch. Only happened to complete it due to idle Discord fun with friends. We kept joking about traveler moaning voice acting while fishing.


Kulta_Conundrum

I only continue to fish because I want rays in my teapot. I encourage you to fish at least once in each of the chasm locations >!because it'll unlock a secret quest!<


lifeofatrash

omg i still havent finished exploring chasm so im def gonna remember to do that when i get around to it!!


uh_oh_hotdog

I don’t love Genshin fishing but I certainly don’t hate it. The only reason I haven’t grinded out that achievement yet is because I feel like there will be new weapons/items that we’ll have to get new fish to redeem.


PrinceBkibo

I did it same patch too, just putting music/let’s plays on over the audio. But I just did it cause I wanted to get the achievement out of the way not cause I really liked the fishing. In fact I can’t even use all the extras I got, I feel bad turning the caught fish into raw fish, the designs are too cute. ;-; All that work just for like 20 primos.


lifeofatrash

I also kept all my fish :') I have no real need for raw fish anyways. I do wish achievements like that gave more rewards though. it's a ton of work for a handful of primos. same with the 800 leylines one


PrinceBkibo

Yeah, I get it’s for consistency but some of them should have way more reward attached. The 800 plant ones too. Even if they expect you to do it long term, it’s quite an ask to have someone do that so many times and play long enough to do it. Feels like the reward should be higher.


SolidCryptographer86

oh wow i actually never thought of multitasking that. i have adhd so i find it hard to stay focused on one thing, i literally can’t watch netflix unless i’m playing a game at the same time. i think i’ll do some fishing on my ps5 while listening to true crime on my phone, cases are so interesting. the entire reason i have an r3 catch to this day is cause of how hard it is to stay focused…


lifeofatrash

I get that! I definitely wouldn't have been so motivated to fish if I didn't have some kind of entertainment. on its own it's not very interesting, but its perfect for multitasking


sad_cats

Ok, 32k+ gems until 2.7 drops. Guess i will go for yelan after all (but wait a few days for the reviews and because i am.on copium that she ends up working woth hu tao since the gave her and staff of homa to testers). If i get off banner, i will just hold the guarantee for kazuha


Throwayaaaah

I just realized we're quite close to Yelan's character teaser being released.


sad_cats

Ib4 her charecter teaser is an armpit showcase

Is Yelan's bow gonna be good on on-field Venti?


hydropyrotechnic

I guess? Although Venti’s bow is much better for Yelan than Yelan’s is for Venti.


FortressCaulfield

I think you maybe need to be more specific than just "on field venti" since nobody does that and we don't know what it means. Are you spamming normals? Using charged shots? Built for EM? Built for crit?


sad_cats

I dont think so? Maybe as a stat stick? But why are you using on field venti anyway


CrazyDiamond156

I triple crowned him because I'm in love with him. So sometimes I use him on-field during the Q. It's complicated.


onetrickponySona

I get it, I also love pewpewing with him while the Q goes off


SqaureEgg

Let people play how they wanna play. If they wanna play stupidly, let them don’t be a gatekeeper


sad_cats

Man, i just asked People on this sub are always on edge lmao


MyNonexistinWaphurts

Dont bother with that guy he is widely hated around this sub for his constant negativity anyways


SqaureEgg

Don’t worry I’m being ironic, mocking the gatekeepers who scream at people for playing meta because that’s how they wanna play


wanabesoz

It's gonna be "ok" on venti


Niebla396

I'm so curious to know if the 3.0 beta will start while we're still in 2.7 due to how the patch was delayed... it would be so helpful to know if the dendro male sword allegations are true while Itto's banner is still up 😵‍💫Plus if the Yoimiya/Kazuha sus leak is true, the weapon banner is very tempting as well... ugh HYV is really going to do their best to bleed us dry right before Sumeru and I don't know which temptation to resist!


SqaureEgg

Why would it? 3.0 beta should be on time aka when 2.8 goes live (in 2 months)


Gentlekrit

Probably because the delay caused the 2.8 beta to start "early" (usually beta begins a few days after the preceeding patch drops, while this beta began a couple weeks before). Hard to say how or if this will affect the beta rollouts moving forward (they might even take advantage of it to give 3.0 a longer beta because of all the new stuff they'll need to test)


SqaureEgg

They have been testing dendro for patches. We have had dendro reaction info & scaling since 2.4 or 2.5 beta


Gentlekrit

And now they need to put that all together, including at least one likely two characters' kits using it, along with a third character, and any other new systems they might have (and maybe a fourth character if they beta test the Traveler's kits, which I assume they do but feel like I heard something about Electro Traveler not being in the 2.0 beta?) Which yes, they absolutely *could* do in a normal beta cycle, but there's a possibility they'll take more time with it since they find themselves with the unusual opportunity to do so.


SqaureEgg

Yes electro traveller was in beta. Not too much testing needed for Dendro, after all it only reacts with half the elements (pyro, hydro & electro)


Niebla396

Yeah I was thinking of the possibility since we are currently seeing leaks from the 2.8 beta while still being in patch 2.6 due to the delay. So I'm curious if it will stay like this going forward (where we would see 3.0 leaks during 2.7), or if HYV will just revise the beta schedule so that it's synched up correctly again.


SqaureEgg

Highly doubtfully, likely just a one time thing because of the delay of the live version


SqaureEgg

It’s kinda weird that mihoyo kept the skin blueprint/outlines in beta yet left the skins out of beta. Why not leave them in beta


milk-rose

been farming oceanid on and off with the idea in mind to take childe to 90, but i also have a fully built ayato. so now i'm wondering if i should ascend mona instead? thots? *prayers?* edit- the votes are in, childe > mona it is


lifeofatrash

i think getting childe to at least 80/90 is a good idea, hes a very strong character


Todorokill

Use both, Childe on one side, Ayato on the other. Unless you have some use for Mona, i’d go with the original plan


Medical-Definition75

Do it. Ayato Q into Childe Q then E then to Ayato E during Childe's CD and vice-versa. Slot in XQ as subDPS, why not?


SqaureEgg

Do it for the standard wishes


ConsolesQuiteAnnoyMe

66 Gold Pinwheel books, just short up on the Mora for Sucrose. Current plan is to focus Oceanid down enough to move Barbara to 80/90, then maybe pause Pinwheels for condensation and burning Tue/Fri excess on Sucrose's Mora (other than still utilizing the event) since I want Venti's books pulled together more than I want to start on Barbara, after which I'll switch to Pinwheels and Mora to get Barbara's books and the Mora to actually move Venti to 9/9/9, then proceed with the original plan of hard focusing Mon/Thu since that'll mean there are no Tue/Fri or Wed/Sat characters who are 80/90+ 6/6/6 so it'll be easier to stay focused.


DownpourOfSalt

Genshin music has this thing where most of the tracks have a majority of the segments be alright/good and then just one segment where it’s like “holy shit my ears have been blessed by the heavens”. Like Yu Peng Chen where’s the consistency here? I want more OSTs where every second is incredible


statemandatedcatgril

A24 movies have this thing where most of the film have a majority of the segments be alright/good and then just one segment where it’s like “holy shit my eyes have been blessed by the heavens”. Like filmmakers where’s the consistency here? I want more movies where every second is incredible


DownpourOfSalt

I get what you mean but I’m thinking where every second is amazing in its own right. I’m not talking about just having “constant banger 10/10 OMG amazing”. Like you can have amazing segments that aren’t the main part and still sound incredible. For example Nier OSTs do that quite often iirc. Most of Nier’s segments are incredible already. Imo Genshin doesn’t have that and only has 1-2 amazing segment in most OST. Some boss OSTs are a great example of an exception. Symphony of the boreal winds sounds incredible throughout most of it. That’s the kind I mean


statemandatedcatgril

Can you give me an example track of what you think "needs more"? I feel like most non-battle tracks go for a quieter ambiance because that's the mood of exploration and even then there are a lot of standouts.


DownpourOfSalt

I’m honestly thinking more about the regular battle tracks for the overworld. Like they all sound good but feel like they’re missing something except for that one segment. An example would be the newest underground chasm battle OST. Like there’s that one segment that sounds like a masterpiece but it felt like there wasn’t amazing buildup to the segment. The buildup was alright but nothing to write home about. This affects all the regular battle OSTs imo Edit: also affects 1 or 2 boss OSTs too I think


statemandatedcatgril

I can kiiiinda see what you're getting at if you're talking about Mondast's battle themes but once again this feels like a super conscious decision for the music to take a backseat for the ambiance of the environments which IMO contributes a lot to how strong Genshin's first impression is when you start the game If you're talking about Chasm battle theme 2 we just have to agree to strongly disagree lmao


DownpourOfSalt

After listening to the Chasm battle OST I was talking about on loop for like 10 times, I stand corrected. That shit is a masterpiece for its entirety. But I still stand by my statement that most other battle osts feel like they lack something for a majority of it


statemandatedcatgril

am i allowed to say tik tok energy (derogatory) or does that make me sounds like an 80 year old grandma


needstochill

I think it's fine that the music is "mostly alright, THIS HITS SO HARD WTF, yeah it's pretty good" since it blends into the background and lets you focus on gameplay for a while and then the part that's really good feels even more special. If every second was a banger, I'd either a) get used to it and eventually think all the music is just bland filler b) get regularly distracted to go "wait that's really good" only to get backhanded across the room by a ruin guard lmao Besides, the point of a video game ost is to keep you immersed in the world and enhance the gameplay, it's not supposed to be a complete experience on its own most of the time.

Rank Top 3 5-stars YOU use the most?


d2hk

Raiden, Yae, Ganyu

Raiden, Ayaka, Venti


SumeruScholar

Ayato, Raiden and Ganyu :)


LeSnipper

Albedo is just so flexible. Wanna use a high damage sub dps? Dont know what to put for your 4th? Wanna use a bad/unbuilt character for their auto attack animations in the overworld? Want some help in exploration? Use him His passive high damage can make him a nice pick for any team. All the above applies to kazuha as well


Arcadio1992

Qiqi, Zhongli, and Eula. Qiqi spot in the exploration team is permanent, and there is no valid negotiation to consider removing her imo xd.


blttersweet

Kokomi-co op, Zhongli-mining, Yae :3


ShortCircuit2020

Raiden, keqing, Yoimiya


Vapore0nWave

Ganyu, kokomi, and mona, because they're the only 5 stars I have so uh


Chtholly13

hu tao, ayaka and kokomi


sundriedrainbow

Kazuha is SSSSSS tier for exploration, hands down, no contest. Venti, Zhongli, Keqing, Albedo all have their uses but that double jump, man. Unbeatable. In terms of combat? Albedo, Jean, Zhongli. GeoAnemo Supremacy (Vent/Kazuha as the fourth) is my go-to team for my first run through Abyss, and then I clean up any remaining stars with Morgana or National or whatever.


Medical-Definition75

Eula Raiden Ayaka


SolidCryptographer86

zhongli, kazuha, ayato.

Kazuha, Xiao, Zhongli

Kokomi Venti and Yae. Venti spot used to be Kazuha until I got him and switched to his CC because it clears mobs in The overworld faster
