We're overdue for a new discussion thread; post your title suggestions below!
Does anyone know about Baizhu's potential release?
If i had to guess, they must be saving him for the next Lantern Rite update.
Barbara 9/9/9 is mission accomplished, but Yelan is early into Friendship 9 (up to just before the F in Friendship) so I'm either going to get more Mora to move Venti to 9/9/9 and improvise (maybe Shinobu 6/6/6) once Yelan inevitably still isn't Friendship 10, or maybe see how Forsaken Rift goes if I just dump a Physical set on Bennett since he's holding Aquila Favonia anyway. I'll probably try that at least once in any case.
Also gonna need EXP Books at some point since Aloy's still at 70/80. Hmmmh. On top of that, I kind of want to +20 the Flower Barbara usually wears. She is one of the characters who really shouldn't go with a +0 Flower. So many near-meaningless little things to do.
Why can't you work on Yelan 'til she's Friendship 10?
Yelan is already 80/90 9/9/9, the problem is that with both her and Shinobu tying up slots for Friendship Squad purposes, that makes Forsaken Rift really clunky. If giving Bennett a Physical set so he can just do the beating himself doesn't work out, then I'm just going to put it off until Yelan is Friendship 10 so I can shift her out and go back to Yoimiya/Bennett/Zhongli/Etc.
I think I missed something, but ok 👍
Will drip be just the 3.0 characters? or could it be anyone that appears in the archon quest
3.0. It’s always patch after next (eg. we got Ayato’s drip marketing right before 2.5 and Yae Miko before 2.4 iirc). So in this case, with 2.8 incoming, 3.0 will be the drip marketing we get.
Should be just 3.0 I think. Yelan showed up in the quest before she was drip marketed.
I have a feeling that Tighnari will have a bajillion vids in this sub. Just imagine those who can access the server try the first dendro 5-star with different characters/teams to test reactions and upload them here separately.
Tighnari and Yae Intensified
Tighnari and Fischl Intensified
Tighnari and Shinobu/Dori Intensified
Tighnari and Kokomi/Mona Overgrown
Tighnari and Xiangling Burning
Tighnari in C6 Diona's burst (if he really scales off EM or smth)
Gonna be exciting to see tho ngl esp if Tighnari is a DPS
Can’t wait to see Tighnari with Ayato
Tighnari with Raiden.
~~*Thank you for your hardwork!*~~
watching people pull for kuki be like:
Here I am wanting to pull for C6 Chongyun (C5 right now) and Kuki but can't because I'm on guarantee and already have Itto.
More like Gorou Impact on my end.
The one time I *wasn’t* happy to see him, LOL.
It was more of Itto Impact for me
Me who got 4 Chongyuns and no Kuki
I play on PS4, and it takes Maguu kenki forever to spawn. When he finally spawns, he spends like 10 seconds just sitting there, invulnerable.
I still can 36*, but it's so frustrating.. Why don't they just remove his starting animation?
The starting animation and random 75% Hp block are so stupid. At least don’t start the timer until he’s fully activated or something.
So Ei's birthday letter is out on Asian servers and its absolutely hilarious and the best one yet: [here.](https://i.redd.it/asizc2t9js791.png)
Spoilers for it: >!Yae really has to do everything for her wife LOL. and threaten the Traveller while at it, love that for her <3!<
[Cutest web event CG too.](https://preview.redd.it/aclwgdohjs791.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=28cb8d6462f612ed3596eaad825ad721292c3d50)
>!The fanfic books written about them both being there... especially the Pretty Please Kitsune Guuji by Yae's side. DYIN.!<
God why aren't these web events for all servers already not just CN, so much better than the comics they used to do before and still do for some dumb reason for global only.
Edit: It gets even better, [she knows about the book!](https://twitter.com/GenshinUpdate/status/1540735495692353539) >!And Yae sure wants her to read or re-read it, no escape :)!< [Oh.](https://twitter.com/GenshinUpdate/status/1540739815028961280)
i love that eimiko is canon and so smart of them to pick a birthday during pride month! they knew. they knew.
I was *not* expecting this I’M-
Gayshin Impact fr
Another birthday letter, another suggestion to go and see the celebrant.
Fuck you mihoyo, first please at least put the characters into the overworld during their birthday so we can actually go and see them.
I like how Yae >!commissioned a fanfic with her and Ei, one of the scenes described even matches the one in Honkai, lmao.!<
it's a proud tradition to keep up! and then >!she signed it and presented it to Ei to read just like that ahaha. by far the most shameless person in Teyvat, and probably possessive too going by the vibes of this letter and more >.>!<
>!yae’s so sweet to ei! we joke a lot abt her pranking her bestie often but it’s super heartwarming whenever she steps up in her stead. cutest gfs ever.!<
hoping they release this on global too, the mini stories look so interesting :((
>!her 500 years of devotion waiting for Ei and looking out for Inazuma for her go strong! so funny how she's so possessive too with how she worded the letter, definitely the type to only let herself make fun of her Ei!<
This account was kind enough to translate this web event at least: https://twitter.com/GenshinUpdate/status/1540734833332170753 and
omg i didn't know that account translates stuff. thank you for the >!eimiko!< crumbs!
I wonder how this message would be for people who did not complete the Inazuma archon quest. The message does not truly spoil anything I guess so maybe everyone gets the same idk
EDIT: Also I have just remembered that Miko's birthday is literally the next day so I wonder how her birthday letter will be like.
Yeah, I don't think they're gonna write different birthday letters for just that. This is more of a tease than anything also with how straightforward it is.
Mihoyo >!clearly put Ei and Miko's birthdays next to each other for a reason so wouldn't be surprised if they had Ei try and write a letter for her now. probably finds it easier to write about others too the way she is. need to add something new for the web event though if they do that, since hard to top this one already and dunno about just repeating them together.!<
God, I love this so much. Thank you hoyoverse for the best birthday present. This is what I needed in my life.
I'm looking forward to what they'll do for Yae's birthday.
same, ho~~m~~yoverse sure knows how to time their birthdays and what to deliver in this case
I'm expecting >!Ei to try and return the favour for Yae now, and it to be as short and straightforward as Yae's letter in her name was LOL. not sure how they could top the web event though, so maybe not a repeat of just them and Traveller together... but could be different if it's about remembering Kitsune Saiguu and the other youkai together! think that's what I want now, please.!<
I think its about time i get out of this sub for sumeru. I really want to be able to load the game and discover the region all by myself (never was able to with earlier patches since i always would be spoiled somehow lol)
I will miss this thread 😭
Same, as soon as I hear 3.0 drops, I'm unsubscribing
the localization team didn't translate hu tao's hilichurl song at all 😭
>the big hilichurl got sick
>the second hilichurl saw
>the third hilichurl picked herbs \[for medicine\]
>the fourth hilichurl simmered them
>the fifth hilichurl died
>the sixth hilichurl lifted \[the hilichurl\] up
I know it's based on a thing but it always reminds me of that [banger Hu Tao fansong](https://youtu.be/zq-FhVgCTJo)
There are a lot of times that good localization and translation can genuinely improve and uplift a game, like:
>"The rains have ceased, and we have been graced with another beautiful day. But you are not here to see it..."
when the original line was something like:
>“There’s nothing for it then, is there? I’m the last one left…”
So I'm not the type that thinks that literal translation is always the way to go. But Hu Tao's hilichurl song is a great example of a localization going horribly wrong. Especially since it's probably a reference to the plague that created the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor in the first place, it's not like westerners don't have a frame of reference for this type of thing in the form of the "ashes, ashes, we all fall down" nursery rhyme that was about the subject of cremating bodies during the black plague.
Remember that we once lived…
Yeah, I was definitely confused when I found out the difference between what she sings in CN and what she sings in ENG. I definitely think singing ring around the rosie would make so much more sense, but I guess they were going for a hillichurl theme rather than death theme ig...
I believe it's actually just a Chinese creepypasta and they thought it wouldn't translate, since it's a reference Chinese folks get and not Westerners. The literal translation would also be a *really* long voice line.
I don't think it's the best translation, but I think they probably did their best to translate Dusky Ming's voice line into what a child would actually say and then got stuck using it for Hu Tao later because they're supposed to line up.
I actually love HTs eng VA for idles / exploration... with the exception of this song she sings. I actively dislike it.
it's more of a whisper-chant in CN (the idle version of it anyway). maybe thats why I don't get annoyed by it
That's also what Little Ming sings huh (the ghost)
I wonder if this song is meaningful
edit: I checked and she's actually called Dusky Ming ~~idk why~~
Man it really seems like we will get double the amount of 5 Star husbandos in Sumeru compared to Inazuma. This may be the first time where I have to spend money to get them all.
it's about time, the first part of inazuma was too stingy with husbandos
I'm not familiar with Honkai Su, so I might be missing something, but at this point what connection is there between him and Haytham besides their hair? The other expies seem to have kept more of the design elements and even their names are similar. From what I can tell from comments (and based on that single art leak, so that might be misleading), their general demeanor seems different too; I've read multiple comments about Haytham missing Su's air of gentle serenity.
Tbh i think that’s the case with Yae as well, after playing Honkai for a bit, i can’t say i see many similarities between them past the pink hair. Su has a connection with Sumeru so that link is in a way i guess transferred but very vaguely so just hints of the design remain
Probably they will share VAs for Japanese and Chinese dub, other than that Honkai Su’s MANTIS form is a peacock and Al-Haitham design in genshin is obviously inspired by it,,
He does seem really different but that’s expected (see Miko and Ei) i think that’s mostly because honkai Su is a side character so his design isn’t as outlandish and his relaxed vibe (“his enlightenment”) is somewhat a result from his MANTIS surgery
People keep saying that Haitham is someone of a high status in Sumeru. There's also a theory that he's the former dendro archon. Su in Honkai is the one who created bubble universe called the Seed of Sumeru using the 2nd divine key so he's technically a god of that bubble universe but he couldn't save it so he asked Durandal to take good care of it. So the story in Genshin might be similar, like Haitham faced situation he couldn't solve, then he gave his archon position to kusanali in hope that she might be the one to solve it. Liben also said that the situation in Sumeru is not good right now
>There's also a theory that he's the former dendro archon
But that theory stems from people knowing him as a Su expy, no? That seems like circular logic. Would be cool though!
Yeah, i also don't know how and where the former dendro archon theory came from
just the fact that mihoyo confirmed the dendro archon to be female, starting with them fixing the pronouns. and also refusal to accept that the rest of the archons will be female.
I play both and I also have no idea. The more we learn about the Genshin character, the less Su-like he becomes. I guess we will see.
He honestly sorta feels like how people said ayato was a Otto expy when like they really don't have much in common design wise.
You know, isn't it weird that there is no leak about the second half of 3.0 in terms of 5\* characters? At least I haven't seen anything recent, neither on a new character or a rerun. Am I missing something here?
No new 5\* character on second half. Or at least that's what reliable leakers are leaning to. As for rerun, we can only infer via event story and/or abyss. Both of which will only be available after beta starts.
There is only 1 speculated 5* for 3.0 so it pretty much leans towards that the other half of the patch will be a rerun
Now so far if a rerun isnt tied to the main event for the upcoming patch, then those reruns are usually harder to predict. People can try to narrow it down with abyss blessing buffs or side events that may involve them but those would usually come when the beta for that patch starts
Haitham is such a pretty name <3 Out of all the Sumeru names we got, I think this is my fav so far.
Tighnari sounds...odd. Mainly because it just means person from Tignar (Granada). It sounds more like a surname than a first name. But maybe it'll make more sense once we get to meet the character.
IIRC Haitham means eagle. Well, he sure does have sharp looking eyes
I'd really love to know how accurate the pronunciations will be considering that Inazuma names were very heavily anglicised. I liked Tighnari a lot more when I found out how to pronounce it (with the gh being more like an r sound) and I hope they'll find a better balance for it. Stuff like ah-YAAAH-ka was just quite over the top.
I know I'll probably dislike the pronounciation. But at the same time, a lot of sounds present in Arabic don't exist in English so I don't expect everyone to know how to pronounce them.
Hopefully, it'll at least be close to the real pronounciation. The gh you talked about is a good example. It shouldn't be too hard to say (it's the same as the french R) so I'm coping for no G sound. The T (ط) in Tighnari tho would be a little harder I think.
it's not like the names were anglicised, it's just that the va have an english accent and they can't do much better than that. there were more issues with Liyue's names since chinese pronunciation is very hard
Tbh I actually had the opposite impression, that while the Chinese pronunciations definitely aren't perfect, they did make an effort. I think you can hear that in how they pronounce the E in wangsheng, tianheng and words like that. They don't pronounce it the way an English speaker would do it if left to their own devices.
Whereas with Inazuma I always felt they decided to just go for the internationalised pronunciation in the sense that its clearly adjusted for an English-speaking audience. There's very heavy emphasis on particular syllables which sounds really unnatural, and they sometimes run vowels together like in YOImiya. A lot of the VA's have done anime work before so I'm sure they could have done a better job if they'd been told to do so.
The Mondstadt stuff is somewhere in between in my opinion. Some things like Gebratenes Fleisch mit Sauerkraut showed a fairly good attempt for people who don't speak the language, whereas major terms like Mondstadt, Klee, etc. are more anglicised. (and the Lyre der Himmel got butchered but I'll forgive them)
Anyway, I'm just interested to find out which approach they'll take for Sumeru. Personally I'd quite like if the names at least give off a general vibe of the source languages, but I'm mentally prepared that it won't even manage that.
Japanese names are a lot more known to the audience thanks to anime, not so much chinese and the pronunciation is honestly just harder. One thing is saying Itto another is Keqing for example. I don't think the japanese names were mispronounced, surely some words sounds weird but if you don't know the language there isn't much you can do. Overall though there weren't huge mispronunciations imo while I heard a lot of noise on the internet for their unstable chinese pronunciation (more than it being wrong, it was weird how they pronounced the same words in different ways). I guess the same will happen for Sumeru but that's just normal because they just don't speak those languages and don't know how to pronounce properly.
I feel like Al-Haitham is a title / a surname and not his actual name because of the Al, which back then (middle ages) was used for surnames for famous and well known scholars like the real Al-Haitham (who is a mathematician)
Still Haitham is much nicer than Tighnari, because it’s an actual name lol
Hmm I wonder if we'll be calling certain sumeru characters by their titles? Kinda like how some Inazuma characters have their full name shown?
IIRC in Honkai Su is connected with a peacock which made Ashikai theorize that he already was in Genshin and his name was Kaeya. Also Xiao but I really can't finish all these thoughts I'm just gonna go listen to more songs
I'm... a bit confused...
I hope you didn't misunderstand me. Haitham meaning eagle/hawk doesn't make it sound weird in Arabic or anything like that.
It's actually a fairly common first name. Not super popular, but still common.
Yeah I understand. Idk this is where my thoughts went but also I guess people typically don't think of the names meanings? Even if it is a common word too, like a girl called uhhh Hope in English
Ooh I see what you mean.
Hope wouldn't be the best example tho. As nobody uses the word Haitham when talking about eagles. It's an uncommon word and people usually don't know what it means.
There's a popular arabic restaurant with that name when I was in the UAE.
Uh.. Hope you had a good time there :)
3.0 should come with a free character from an event. Who will it be in your guys opinion? Also, which type of event will it be? I would love a festival in Mond with a free Collei. But at the same time, I don't remember 3.0 having a memorable major event, considering the focus was the new region, compared to 2.1. So I expect, I dunno, a free Sucrose because she is an alchemist, and the event could be Academia-based. And MAYBE the long-awaited Ludi harpastum in 3.1, like Moonchase was in 2.1.
EDIT: Ops, got everything mixed up. Anyway, 3.0 is the free weapon patch, so what weapon type should we get in 3.0? Its either claymore or polearm, right? At least a free Collei with Ludi Harpastum (IF 3.1), seems more possible now.
Free Claymore or polearm
3.0 is free weapon patch.
I do wonder if we will get Collei's BiS Bow or Dori's BiS Claymore during such event.
We just got a bow
Yeah, got the patches mixed up lol we just got a free bow, so its either a claymore or a polearm.
Yeah, good point. After Kiku, I sure hope Dori will be the saving grace for Electro Healing units and giving her a BiS Claymore (Healing Bonus%?) would help.
2.8 is the free character patch. 3.0 should be a free weapon.
...you're right, I got them mixed up. Completely forgot we got a free bow this patch and 2.8 is free Fischl lol
What patch will the anniversary take place during?
Should be the second half of 3.0, more precisely during the last week of the update (that should end October 4, and anniversary is September 28).
Just in time for the week long copy paste login
Well, I hope they at least make the mora and exp ratio actually different/better, if they give us the usual 10 wishes. At least include a namecard, Hoyo. Make it slightly more special... That first anni was tragic, the worst one I've seen in years of gacha gaming. At least the concert was running at the same time, that was pretty cool.
petition for hu tao to actually get story involvement

oh my god
Haiku bot actually made a haiku.
Good for you, bot
Not trying to doompost but I hope Mihoyo does something interesting for 2nd half of 3.0. Instead of a skippable rerun banner & 10 free wishes for anniversary
Both halves of 2.0 were boring AF in terms of narrative-driven events (we only got combat ones) since the main focus was Archon Quest + new region.
I'm afraid the same will be true for 3.0.
I found exploring the 3 islands made up for it.
i just realized it's gonna be raidens birthday tomorrow, i'm honestly very curious what kind of food she's gonna give us. I think it would be adorable if she gave us Sara's specialty dish lol ٩(◕‿◕｡)۶
Her birthday letter is already out on some servers, you can see it here if you want: [https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FWHDt2KVEAMWo8r?format=jpg&name=large](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FWHDt2KVEAMWo8r?format=jpg&name=large)
Spoilers: >!Yae does all the work for her of course LMAO!<
omg that's so adorable, I truly wonder what Ei would ever do without her. Also knowing her she definitely invited the traveler without telling her first lmao
will need to see now if >!Ei can maybe return the favour and write a letter in Yae's stead tomorrow lol. it's not like Yae put in that much effort here really with all her straightforwardness and threatening :D!<
please my Eimiko heart wouldn't be able to handle that, but it would be so cute and I'd love to see it happening because there must be some sort of reason why they put miko's bday one day after ei's T-T
Probably dango milk or Miko specialty. If she gives us Sara's, that would be a huge surprise to me, considering they're not even that close.
i was thinking it may be sara's because in the description of her dish it says that the sweetness doesn't suit sara's preferences, and that it may have something to do with someone else's tastes. We know that raiden loves sweets and the symbol on top of it. But yeah dango milk does make a lot of sense and would be quite cute too (*´▽`*)
Completely forgot about that. Could it be a case of "the general gave me this for my birthday, want some traveler?". I can see this happening in the letter lol
Probably Dango milk lol
Finally now we can end the "Su Is ThE rEaL ArChOn because of his name"su"" theory now that there's nothing in his genshin name about being a dendro archon.
it's not about his name. it's about the fact that "old archon is dead" is being conveniently rubbed in our faces and the slime theory
I am pretty sure the speculations were based on his expy, not his in-game name. Just like how Raiden Mei was the Herrscher of thunder in Honkai, and Ei is the electro archon.
Same as Yae but they actually base it on the name Su something to do with seed or something.
in before his name is Su Al-Haitham lmao
Really wish there was a way to tell Godwin to quit being a coward, come back to Mondstadt and stop lying to his sweet girlfriend
This wouldnt have happened if her boyfriend was from the Millelith. xd
Or the tenryou commission
Mondstand boys are nice as a party friend not exactly good for a long term relationship unless they have a vision xd.
More of a friends with benefits/casual fling kind of nation. Freedom and all that.
true, he should return to Mond and guard Timmie's pigeons or something.
Really wish there was a way to tell Glory about Godwin's lies so she can dump him.
boys will be boys
I've been listening to random songs that are performed by Genshin VAs on Youtube and I guess now is the moment of truth, it suggested "Snezhnaya's greatest love machine" as the next song. Yep I've never heard it but heard a lot about it. Here goes
edit: "there was a cat that really was gone"? wtf did he do to a cat?
I think I heard this song before but it had different lyrics
It's a parody of Boney M - Rasputin
>edit: "there was a cat that really was gone"? wtf did he do to a cat?
it's a phrase, there isn't a literal cat involved. 'cat' probably means more in the context of "he was a cool cat" and 'really was gone' as in, he was crazy or lost his mind. basically he was an absolute madman yk?
ah, this explains it. Thanks! Cause it was the same in the original and also seemingly out of context
CN voice actors have some [really ](https://youtu.be/eF6preXfMHw) [beautiful ](https://youtu.be/GqKJY5Cm_qs) [covers!](https://youtu.be/KrNUrgaOsCc)
Oh yeah. I actually listened to it on repeat for some time
the original song is Rasputin and it even has its own dance in Just Dance! it's a really good song imo but I havent heard tartar's version yet lmao
Okay nothing could prepare me to [this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USFVPbzMTIU) lmao
I now can relate to the way East Asian people feel about Sumeru discussions
okay there's no way you haven't heard this song before... but yeah ive been cringing at it for a while. at least it's catchy
Well I know the music so I've definitely heard before but I never listened to it you know?
And I shouldn't have.
im fairly certain its a parody of the rasputin song, just that rasputin is replaced with tartaglia. so some of the lyrics dont make much sense genshin-wise lol
confession: as a horrible feeemale I am personally out here to oppress all straight male coomers by being enthusiastic about husbandos 😈
~~Su~~ Haitham my love please come home soon 💖💖💖
Lies! Rule 30 states that there's no girls on the Internet. You're clearly an FBI agent.
Pretty sure this subreddit is already full of women and gay men because I mostly see husbando lovers lol
Now that u mention this, I rarely find them now cuz their comments are usually drowned in downvotes xd.
You mean husbando comments? I haven't seen much of that, I actually think comments about the male characters tend to get more upvotes lol
Nono. The waifu "only" players, they are usually at the bottom of the comment sections xddd.
Idk i see a lottttttt ppl simping for female chars, and saying they only go for waifus. There are just more ppl who are into husbandos here than the main sub
I also think that the reason most people are talking about the guys right now is because we know the most about them, during the Yae/Shenhe/Yelan/Kuki era, there was a lot of simping for the women too. It just depends on who we are getting leaks for.
I am pretty sure op's comment is an answer to [this guy comment](https://www.reddit.com/r/Genshin_Impact_Leaks/comments/v1hqi8/morbius_impact_general_discussion_and_questions/idowa4m/?context=3).
>I mostly see husbando lovers lol
Well, I guess most of us migrated after the sad shit storm that went down on the main sub last time, lmao
Well that person is just straight up weird but I tend to ignore incels. Idk what happened on the main sub because while I love the female characters, I feel like most of the art there is made by men for men so I never went there much in the first place lol
oh em gee did someone say female!!1111!11!1! that’s like totes me ROFL like i totally can’t wait for all the new husbandos omg 😱 ttyl hope there’s like more news soon!1!!1!!1!11 YOLO
god I need to bleach my eyes after typing that
this world is a cruel and unjust place. there is no harmony in th-
OMG HAITHAM 🥺❤️🥰💞✨
all those posts just to say su's expy name isn't "this or that" lmao
can we have some quality control here please. jfc
Got 6* on floor 12 for the first time just now, very happy since I'm not a mechanically skilled player. Got back from taking a couple months break recently and have been finding playing super fun. Not sure if I'll be able to take it to 9* like, ever.. actually I suppose had I gotten Yelan I might have. Having to build two fast teams with just one XQ has been pretty hard lol. Planning to get Yelan on her rerun though, if timing wise it works out.
I wonder who’s getting a rerun in 3.0
I would personally like Hu Tao for my side account
I would like to get my hu Tao c1, but Dendro archon is right around the corner & I rather guarantee c0 + r1 or some constellations with no weapon
I'm fine as long as it's not Yae or Zhongli. I want them and don't want to choose between either of them and new dendro character.
Maybe Shenhe or Hu Tao if they ever do another Moonchase/Mid-autumn festival event this year since 3.0 falls around Aug-Sep
They did last year yet we had inazuma characters
Bad ending: Childe rerun
Good ending: Special banner for anniversary during second part
Neutral ending: It's just a big Tighnari banner with Collei and Dori during all the patch
But who's in it?
✨ ✨ ✨ I don't know ✨ ✨ ✨
Personally I'm hoping for one of Hutao/Albedo/Eula/Shenhe
Basically anyone but Tartaglia
We aren’t getting a special banner. We getting 10 wishes & that’s it. Doubt they would do 1 banner all patch, that’s REALLY bad for sales
Then it's time for Mr. Worldwide
I think they'll push hutao to 3.1 for Halloween.
So maybe Tartag + Albedo?
I hope not & Albedo makes zero sense. I could somewhat understand Childe since >!he is supposed to fight Scara or something!<
The next patch with Kazuha will include a free weapon right? So would this be the 1st time we get 2 free weapons in a row? Or did I miss a free character somewhere?
To add to what other people are saying, the free weapon (apparently coming as part of Kazuha's story quest) will be more akin to The Catch than to the other free weapons - a new permanent freebie rather than part of the usual cycle of limited event free weapons/characters (it just happened that The Catch released during a free weapon patch alongside Luxurious Sealord, while This Is A Sword is releasing during a free character patch)
Fischl will be the free 4\* for 2.8. Kazuha's sword is permanently obtainable from his story quest so you can get it anytime
event gives free fischl. there's a free weapon as part of a story quest but that's permanent content
No, the free character of the patch is Fischl. Weapon is from a permanent quest. It's not an event weapon, it's the same situation as with The Catch.
It’s a free fischl patch. The “free weapon” is from a quest
I am once again ~~begging~~ asking for a pyro xingqiu/yelan... why did they do this to you Thoma...
Oh and another pyro healer too 🙏
me but with cryo. I tried Kaeya+Ningguang today and realized it doesn't work like that lol
if the 5\* instructor set is real rip to my old self who believed I was smart for keeping instructore pieces.
I have a set for damage showcase purposes. The new set seems to be dendro exclusive so the 4 star doesn't really lose its niche
At least you didn't level up any of those pieces...did you? •_•
no I didn't thanks god. I locked the instructor pieces just in case they could be useful. I thought it would be easy and smooth for once, but of course they had to introduce a new set
Not my dads name making it into genshin 😭😭 first layla my aunt and now haitham lmao. Can i make it into genshin too??
Also any other arabs here find it interesting how people on this sub are in awe of basically normal names? Like how layla is supposed to be this beautiful exotic name meaning the starry dark night when for you its just another name
there's an npc with my last name (as their first name) already. my first name isn't that common but I could see my brothers name making it in
lemme just tell you ain't nobody in russia is named ajax/childe/tartaglia 💀
This comment made me laugh! Seriously speaking though, all of Childe-Ajax-Tartaglia’s names have separate lore/etymology.
But so far what I’ve heard from the community is that Mihoyo has really been butchering Russian names lol
they do be butchering them a lot. however, I must commend them on calling female fatuis cute pet names like "ludochka" this is so cute I can't get mad at it
as a Chinese person, trying to remember if this happens with Chinese names (though most of the Liyue names aren't normal names) 😅
npc names, perhaps?
LeSnipper… maybe a doctor character who specialises in vasectomies?
May I ask what's your name?
For all we know it could be a future character's name!
Its ahmed but its way too basic to make it so im not holding my breath lol. But hey if i ever do make it ill be ecstatic
I can absolutely see an NPC with the name Ahmed!
Youre right i completely forgot abt npcs. Fingers crossed
They might put like an old variant of it or maybe they'll name an NPC after it, there can only be so many names for so many sumeru NPCs that will be coming
Layla seems like a pretty commonplace name to me, but haitham is really unique
Its surprisingly common in egypt where i live at least. But its somewhat of a slightly older name so youll see it more on the older generations like Gen X and above
Good luck winning 50/50s for your dad and aunt if you decide to pull ig????
Definitely gonna try to pull my family for the memes lol
There are several characters in Genshin that are called the same way that I am (well, almost). Granted those names aren't considered anything exotic but it's almost guaranteed to happen with so many NPCs, but I guess if a playable character was called that it would be an interesting feeling. They probably won't though
idk to be honest I didn't even realise layla was an Arab name, thought everyone just did it lmao
Tell us your name and we will consider it as a leak /j
