MIHOYO WHAT THE FUCKETY FUCK?
Well I don't have to like it, and boy I don't, but they are not making it uncertain which crowd they're going after with Gorou.

They only need to make the boss items interchangeable through crafting, such as the drop from raising talents, i wonder what are they waiting for?
That's actually a great simple idea. I hadn't even thought of it because I'm too trained into current MHY-thought. If they want to be real dicks, they can just do it up to like AR 50 even, just to help new players.
damn i guess i need to lv up my ning then, i dont have eula, now i remember i left the game because i lost my 50% and around 40 pulls I couldn't get that booty sad, i felt destroyed and depressed.
That's why I was so happy that these lizards don't have a mandatory invincibility phase like the samurai boss and the cubes.

Ning is really fun to play as a healer (with the craftable Prototype Amber weapon), I've recommended it a few times in the thread. Now that I've built mine out a little more, she even does respectable damage since you don't have to give her any healer stats and can build her as a straight DPS character other than the weapon.

That's what C6 Tart and C6 Eula does to a man: so much power, so he throws main DD into Healers ghetto lmao

Ningg is a great DPS character and I'm glad that I have her at C6.

She absolutely shreds that damn Geo Wolf...

...with a little help from her 5☆ weapon lol

have you fought with the new boss, i mean the lizzards, they fuck your life and decrease you energy by 40% or more and you can't use any ulti, 2 hits and boom you have 0% energy when they hit you with the balls, it doesn't matter if you have a shield or not.


they are making this casual game a dark souls, i want to see mobile players killing those assholes.

Why all the hatred for mobile on this forum?

I've been playing on only android since September 2020.

I'm farming the lizards since I unlocked them.

I don't think he hates mobile. It's just that the game is a lot harder to play on mobile due to the control limitations (unless you play on iPhone/iPad with controller). Certain characters and mechanics exist to make the game a bit easier to play for mobile players, but they've been constantly nerfing them. That's what's being criticized here.

Itto is so fun and easily one of the best character in GI, so glad I pulled him.

Now waiting for the Z with insane impatience, was waiting for his rerun since I started GI few months ago, can't wait.

Thanks, tho i'm guaranted to get Z , I've 70 wishes and I'm 100%(got qiqi in same 10 pulls of itto), so I'm good lol

If I have more pulls after i will wish on Ganyu banner since I want more constellations for the 4*

I'm done with this wolf boss since I maxed Itto, i was using XQ, Diluc, Albedo and Noëlle, then once I got Itto to lvl 70 I replaced Diluc and XQ with Itto and gourou to continue faming this boss.

Next time try to use Ningg in case you'll pull Itto's claymore. She was made for this boss fight.

I'd say she's way more valuable than Geo Lord at this point, but pull for whatever you enjoy.

I don't have Ninguang yet, if I get Beidou and XQ C6 in the next banner she may be my pick on the free pick Liyue 4*.

Ganyu is fun, and i was surprise on how much I enjoyed her since I usually don't like much bow characters, and also since I still don't have a strong Cryo DPS, I've Chongyun that I enjoy and he do fine but his damages aren't at the level of my other DPS mains.

yeah i remember when i was afraid to pull for ganyu even on pc the aim system sucks with alot limitations, the Y asis is slow and weird.

What the fuck did they do to Aether? He looks worse than Venti, Xingqui and Gorou.
Ahhh there it is. I could tell by the wording of the totems tooltip that they wanted to sell you a constellation to increase their level. I was a little confused when she didn't originally have it.

New time-gated hidden quest:


Thanks to Trokil.
Nice, thanks for the tip. But - who is Trokil?

Man it seems like you have more 5* than you have 4*. That luck sure is something.

I got Hutao with 143 pulls (lost 50/50 to Qiqi), then Albedo with 83 pulls (it's a lot but just glad i won 50/50), then after 90 pulls on Itto banner i got Itto and Qiqi so that's big luck that i got Qiqi so i can guarantee next 5*, here indeed and quite happy about that even tho i would have guaranteed Z no matter what, i think my luck is balanced so far lol

4* characters i don't have yet are Sara, Sucrose, Yanfei, Ninguang and Yunjin. I should maybe get Yanfei since i'm pulling on Z banner (and maybe Ganyu's too), i always though she was great and fun.

Do people actually care if Yae is going to be "meta" or not? She is a hot fox milf that is literally all I need to know. Might need to swipe for this one. I pulled for the big milky ice mommy, so Yae will make a fine edition to my collection.

I am not horny, btw.

I'm not meta myself, but I would rather have something that its fun and it works. Not that I need an another electro, I'm full of electros already.

We're on a roll of a few disappointing 5*s in a row. I think it's the overall shift that even the 5*s now are getting too specific on their uses and purposefully gimped by the dev so that they don't become the next Ganyu/Hu Tao. We're just waiting for something strong that's worth pulling for.

That said, I pulled both Shenhe and Kokomi, so in-game performance won't stop me from appreciating..... the developer's work on these characters.

I don't really care about the meta, but when you reach a certain WL or AR rank, it takes a decent investment of time and resources to get a character to a usable state. Also, I'm not FTP, but I'm also not a whale, so I'm judicious with wishes. My preference is characters that can be used in several ways, not just a single role.

I'm currently saving toward the Shogun rerun, but I hope Yae plays well since I do like her design.

Her buffs today are a positive sign. Better numbers, completely reworked constellations (lol). Her skill no longer deletes itself, and her auto attacks got quickened so hopefully we don't have to animation cancel constantly. Still a way off from release though.

Also yea, that's where I'm at with characters. I pull them if I like them, meta be damned, but that said I'm not trying to roll for useless characters or ones that only work at night on the moon while wearing purple and fighting only fire enemies with 3 or more eyes. Team experimentation was a lot of fun for me up until recently where they're releasing characters that basically say "use this team" or "use this character with them". It was bad enough at 4* with Gorou and Sara, but now Shenhe is expanding into 5*s and that and it doesn't make me happy.

Hopefully the players will give 'em some good feedback on that in the next survey. Whether they listen to that or not is a different subject.

What score do you give? No.
What do you not like in this patch? No.
Please provide suggestions or feedback. No.

This morning I thought of a very funny joke about the new plot, but I forgot it.

You guys go ahead and laugh on trust.



How original.

Is that ad actually real? Genshin's ads have been hit or miss, but at least they refrained from hiring crappy actors talking about combat ratings and stuff. I wonder if those actually work to draw in people. I see so many companies use them, but they're consistently terrible. The slightly off grammar always gets to me too. "Kayea is a cryo!"
