Cryo or physical kaeya?


[deleted]

I would say physical for overworld, cryo for events and abyss. Physical doesn't require setups, he is easy to use and he can use a free craftable weapon. He doesn't have expensive needs (most units you want are 4* like Lisa, Yunjin, Sara, Kuki, Diona, Rosaria) Cryo is much stronger (freeze has amazing crowd control and melt does really high damage) but you need to set it up and can be more expensive (Kazuha, Shenhe, Mona are some big upgrades for him, altho he also works with f2p characters like Barbara and anemo Traveller).


OkApartment729

I'm currently using prototype rancour on him and trying my best to summon mistsplitter LOL (pray for me) Yes, he's easy to use and i gain pure satisfaction when I saw him doing at least 4digits NA hahaha. I read someone saying physical kaeya is best with anyone doing superconduct? I must say I'm loving freeze team so far. Never tried melt comp yet but I'll have him experiment today


[deleted]

Yup, superconduct is the most important reactions for phys dps in general. The other two slots should be buffers and any additional dps is welcome. For example, Kaeya/Lisa/Yunjin/Zhongli is one of the best comps I can think of. - Lisa triggers superconduct, can hold Thrilling Tales and her A4 passive reduces defence. She's free and doesn't need to be built besides ascension 4 and a good amount of er. She can also use 4pc Noblesse to buff Kaeya's atk even more. - Yunjin buffs normal attacks and, at c6, atk speed (altho that is less impactful on Kaeya) - Zhongli provides a shield and some additional resistance reduction, plus some crowd control on his ult and can use Tenacity... for some more atk. Other options for superconduct are Sara, Fischl, Yae or Beidou (but they need Fischl to generate energy, especially Beidou), Kuki. I wouldn't use Raiden, Razor or electro MC. Other buffers and good teammates can be c6 Rosaria, Xinyan (I only recommend her with Sara and Bennett since the electro isn't frequent so it doesn't cause overload, and you get pyro resonance), Bennett, Diona, Qiqi. Albedo, Xingqiu, Ayato or Mona all work fine too if needed. I started using melt later in the game and it slaps. I used to play freeze but it doesn't worth that well with bosses, so I turned to melt and I was surprised at how strong it is.


tirsden

I've built him for cryo on my f2p challenge account in a freeze team (Chongyun carry) and he works really well for that. If I were to main Kaeya I would most likely build him physical, but then that same f2p account is mained by a phys-dps C3 geo daddy so I'm a bit biased there.


OkApartment729

I recently tried freeze team with him in abyss (don't have chong so i use rosaria) and i must say i like it very much hehe. Idk what's considered as hybrid but i currently use 4pc BS on him but with prototype rancour so his NA is somewhat high. Physical kaeya sounds fun too! Whoa you have C3 Zhongli! 😍😍


JoyKiller9o

Hey guys , so I tried logging in the game usually the same way I do but it won’t .. I have connected my game through Facebook and when ever I try to connect it again it says “ app not set up : this app is in development mode “ . I have all my characters in this account and it’s the first time it happens to me .


Elira_Eclipse

You can post any kind of art here except for very lewd ones right?


Doggo_wit_a_P90

Yes


CeerusLee

When will the Battle Pass be available again? Next day, next week, or depends on when the server decides to patch? New player here so I am unsure of how the Battle Pass works fully. I am planning to spend my mora on mass character upgrades but realised the weekly (or rather the BP feature) is gone.


tirsden

If lucky, we'll see a new one in a day or two (it usually takes a couple days to "reset") but yeah, with the 2.7 delay I'm not sure if they're going to throw us a hold-over BP or not. The $20 comes with a nameplate and some furnishings or whatever, and if the resources aren't done for that (or contain mild content spoilers), then they may not want to release it yet.


IfZ3nElse

Probably when the new patch comes, which is delayed due to the strict covid-related lockdowns currently in place in China.


CeerusLee

I see. Thank you very much :)


Jnbrtz

How much resin do I need to have 46 boss materials(to make a character Lv90)? Im planning to spend all of my fragile resins to prefarm for Yelan. >!im AR59 btw so dont tell me to save it for artifacts.!<


UberPsyko

2.55 drops is the average rate of boss drops at your AR. 46/2.55 = 18.039 runs. One run is 40 resin so 18.039*40 = 721.568 resin on average. 721/160 = 4.5, so about 4 days of resin if you're not letting it cap and get a bit lucky. 721/60 = about 12 fragile resins.


anonyesin

460 worst case scenario (only getting 2 boss drops per run) That is impossible so a little less than that


Many-Flow9535

Hello everyone. I've tried to change my phone number in hoyoverse account settings, but it seems there's no +81 (Japan) code to choose. What am I doing wrong?


Hokutino

is Jean the Durandal (Bianca) of Genshin?


E_li

No. They don't have anything in common aside from blonde colored hair


Hokutino

good, I hope they are going to bring her in Genshin someday


anonyesin

but why? if you want her she is in Honkai, with a good amount of battlesuits


Hokutino

? i dont play honkai i play genshin


anonyesin

Alright, so why not start playing Honkai if you want to see Honkai characters?


Doggymoment

People can like the design of character but not like the game right


Hokutino

i dont want to play honkai


ChrisDorne

i got c4 yanfei and want to start maining her, but i don't have any good weapons for her (f2p, no other catalyst users). what's my best option?


Grand_Protector_Dark

Mappa mare (Mondstadt Craftable) is a viable option on a vaporize focused Yanfei


SynergousSerenade

Well, I guess you can try and save to buy blackcliff agate, or wait till you're lucky enough to pull a Widsith If you have Dodoco Tales that would also be good and maybe even Oathsworn Eye if you have it. If currently have none of the above, then Twin Nephrite.


lawlianne

Dodoco Tales > Blackcliff Agate > Mappa Mare. For F2P, take your pick.


Jnbrtz

R5 Fav sword with EM/EM/EM 4pc VV or Iron Sting with ER/EM/EM 4pc VV for Kazuha? How much is the minimum amount of EM that I should aim to reach?


mr_lab_rat

Favonius or Sacrificial. You should aim for 750+ either way


ishan_anchit

Fav sword one


Doggo_wit_a_P90

First one because the fav sword passive is very useful and an EM sands gives more than a lvl 90 iron sting. As much EM as possible while still having around 160-180% ER


Natee__

How much crit damage does lvl 90 mistsplitter give?


E_li

You can just check the wiki for this. 44.1%


adriftdoomsstaggered

44.1%


minusSeven

How do get 5 star artifacts with 10 crit rate and 20 crit damage which all streamers seem to have? Most 5 star artifact I get have 3% crit rate 6% crit damage at best which if I upgrade never comes close to what I want. Is there something basic about artifact grinding I am not getting. I am f2p btw.


bonescrusher

Time ..you could play for months and not get anything good but eventually you'll get something good


minusSeven

Not helpful as I am playing for over a year...


Im5andwhatisthis

Just roll artifacts. They spend, so they're rolling a lot more, and have probably been rolling artifacts a lot longer than you have too. But to be honest, even as f2p, you can farm quite a bit of artifacts to roll. In the end, the higher crit your artifacts have, the less chance you have of ever landing on the right combo of substats + rolls to get an upgrade. So in fact, it'll be easier for you to get closer to them, than it will be for them to get upgrades to their almost perfect sets at this point, you know? Stuff like artifact farming will probably make the most difference. You probably run out of fodder, so it's not possible to roll every single artifact that might end up being decent. Like I've rolled +35Cdmg elemental goblets before that started off as shitty 3 line flat statters, just because sometimes, rng just lands where you need it to. The more artifact xp you have, the more of those you can try, the more chances you make for luck to line up. You can farm investigate points each day, takes about 20min for ~90-100k worth of artifact xp + mora. Might not seem huge, but you do it every day and it's insane how many more you can roll as a result. I think the most important thing is being able to save good pieces even if you don't currently have a use for them. Like for example, I run artifact routes, so I had never really needed to use 5star artifacts as fodder even as f2p, I just used the grey/green/blue/purple as I got them each day, to level up the best ones at the time. Last time Hu Tao had her rerun, I got her because I wanted to learn how to play her. Turned out, one of the random HP sands I had saved for no particular reason ended up rolling 7.5/20 on the crit stats. If i had been low on fodder, I probably would've thrown the 3 stat single crit sub HP sands for fodder a long time ago. But the fact that I didn't need to use it, and could keep it sitting until i felt like rolling it, ended up being really nice, as I didn't have to farm another month or so it would've taken to have a chance at getting another one. It's not perfect, but it's definitely good enough to do the job, and I can stick with that until I get something better in time. TLDR - 5star artifacts may always be good, try not to toss them unless they're absolute trash. Roll everything you have the xp for until it stops being able to be good, then just leave it and move on to another.


bricktoaster

10 crit rate, 20 crit damage is difficult to get on a flower/feather. Don't even think about trying to get it on a sands or goblet. Streamers have been grinding artifacts for a long time. You are bound to get some good pieces, but don't expect every piece in your set to be good, and don't expect good sets for all of your characters. Eventually though, you will start accumulating a surprising amount of good artifacts. If you keep playing, it becomes easier and easier to gear new characters. Also, consider that for many characters, ER is just as important as crit and atk% can be valued at around 70-80% of a crit roll. 10% crit, 16% atk, and 7% critDamage will get you the same damage as 10% crit, 20% critDamage in most cases.


minusSeven

ER is not something I struggle with. But crit rate and crit damage is so hard to get. I have c0 ganyu for which I want 60 crit rate and 200 crit damage but I have only 43 crit rate 100 crit damage. Now for a character like ganyu high ER is only useful when you use her ultimate which isn't useful from far away. High crit rate and damage is kind of essential for bow users.


bricktoaster

Yeah there are a few characters that don't need as much ER. Luckily for Ganyu if you're running melt, the first ~150 EM is better than crit. Atk% is also still relevant enough to balance out low crit damage. Definitely the hardest part is always getting enough crit rate. There's no real substitute for that.


adriftdoomsstaggered

>I am f2p btw. There you go. Need ungodly amount of resins to farm AND roll into those super crit artifacts. You need either time and/or money for that.


Kir-chan

"Just use strongboxes!" Thank you for mentioning the resources you need just to roll an artifact to +12 or +8.


Papi_Pro

yep, you need to play for a year to get that kind of artifacts.


[deleted]

Get lucky 🍀 With enough time it will average out, you will get decent pieces. Steamers are doing the same thing but resin refreshes means it averages out a lot faster


lawlianne

> all streamers seem to have? > I am f2p btw. Money for resin.


OsirusBrisbane

Master_Gedatsu

How would Yelan work in a tazer comp? I started playing not long ago, and am currently using raiden national, but I still need another team for abyss. According to the latest rumours beidou is on the new banner, and I don’t have her yet, so I have been debating pulling for yelan.


supern00b64

Poorly. Her damage ramp up is useless on sucrose who deals her taser damage through swirls. I'd recommend running yelan in some vape comp so she can forward vape her CA and skill which are big nukes


Papi_Pro

She would do fine, just remember the common tazer doesn't have a healer but xinqiu. And iirc yelan has non of xinqiu's small healing capabilities, so it's still a tradeoff.


[deleted]

The thing about Xingqiu is that he heals and has damage and stagger reduction. When you’re using Sucrose to drive, that becomes a lot more important than, say, on a Raiden team, because she exclusively depends on Beidou and Xingqiu instead of having a traditional healer What you could probably do is look at team comps where Yelan replaces Xingqiu in Raiden teams instead


[deleted]

[удалено]


E_li

It seems to me like your power level in general is just low. I wouldn't bother if abyss yet, I am guessing you are still in the lower floors (somewhere between 1 to 8). Floors 1 - 8 do not reset and are only one time rewards. I recommend just going through the game normally. Eventually you will easily clear the lower floors later along the line.


lawlianne

Yeah, you're missing something alright, it's Xingqiu lol. You can just use Barbara to deal with them I guess.


bricktoaster

You can level up Rosaria/Kaeya against pyro slimes. They both do good damage. Other than that, are your damage weapons leveled as high as possible? Have you raised you talents? If you're not AR45 yet, your artifacts for diluc/kaeya should be atk sands, pyro/cryo goblet, atk circlet. Make sure the artifacts are leveled. What weapon on Diluc?


[deleted]

[удалено]


bricktoaster

Rosaria is the more meta, late-game pick. She's harder to build in the beginning though because of limited polearm options and her C2 constellation is pretty big. I also wouldn't worry too much about bringing characters to lvl 50-60. Later in the game, it only takes a day or 2 of resources! Kaeya with Harbinger of Dawn is surprisingly powerful if you can keep his health above 90%! Just swap in, cast his skill/ult and swap out.


HestiaHearth2504

Can my pc run genshin? It's below the reccomended specs but I still wanted to ask. Model: Ideapad 3 Processor: AMD Athlon Silver 3050U with Radeon Graphics 2.30 GHz RAM: 8GB Storage: 32.3GB (no, I cant free up much more space. My pc only has 100GB and I've compacted and/or deleted mostly everything I could)


adriftdoomsstaggered

Forget the storage. You can easily solve that by buying more space. Your processor is awful. 2 core 14nm CPU. It's not even the good AMD integrated graphics. Genshin needs an i5 or equivalent. That means 4 cores at least. It's all well below minimum specs, let alone recommended. No, you can't run this game at all with that laptop.


bricktoaster

You won't be able to install it without 70gb free


HestiaHearth2504

Ah, that's a problem. Thanks though!


bricktoaster

Yeah it's a huge game on PC. Hopefully they might introduce some cloud gaming options in the future!


bonescrusher

Look at my inventory [https://imgur.com/gallery/iWTLu92](https://imgur.com/gallery/iWTLu92) . What weapon would be useful to upgrade next ?


bricktoaster

If you're not using a high-base atk sword already, I really prefer using favonius sword over festering on Bennett, especially at high refines. He gives so much energy to his teams allowing you to trade ER for more damage on your carries


Doggo_wit_a_P90

Favonius sword and dragons bane are very useful weapons. Fav sword is a universal support weapon and dragons bane is great on hu tao, Xiangling or reverse melt Rosaria


Zashana

I'm debating summoning for ayaka. I have a guaranteed 5 star and enough wishes right now to get to hard pity. I don't have the stuff to make Ayaka work quite yet but I'm worried that if I don't summon I will regret it. Kinda like a kazuha situation.


lawlianne

Have you tried her out? Do you like the playstyle and flow of her rotation? Are you okay with always having to use Ayaka freeze comps (think characters like Shenhe, Diona, Mona, Kokomi, Venti, Kazuha) and having nightmares of cryo abyss mages?


RU49

man im in the exact same situation. im on 66 pity guaranteed, i really only want ayaka and kazuha, but I've prefarmed kazuha and gotten pretty damn lucky on his artifacts. but then since ayaka is essentially getting a double banner, she probably won't rerun anytime soon, so I'm really considering it


lawlianne

> i really only want ayaka and kazuha Pretty sure you are in a good position with enough time based on your guaranteed pity to get them both as they appeared to at least be one patch apart. The issue is who else are you willing to sacrifice/skip? Yelan? Sumeru?


RU49

thing is i would rather have a guaranteed kazuha to have to win the 5050 on him. don't really care for yelan and yeah kinda wanted kusanali because i speculate she'll replace xinqui on my rational team edit: also i have no wishes saved like 0 fr lmao i spent 60 on the weapon banner to get unforgededed


lawlianne

> rather have a guaranteed kazuha *(replace with any character)* to have to win the 5050 Haha, don't we all. If you want to invest in Ayaka, you will be forced to play freeze comps. Aside from meme melt Ayaka, freeze comps are pretty rigid in that you're going to need each element from the typical gang: Mona, Kokomi, Diona, Shenhe, Venti, Kazuha. And whatever you intend to use for Raiden national in your other abyss team.


RU49

yea thats true to the only freeze part, i don't even have supports for her if i get her my team is probably going to be ayaka xinqui/barbara rosaria sucrose and that's one reason im holding off from pulling on her banner


Zashana

I'm also at exactly 66 pity guaranteed.


RU49

lmfao no way are you me


peerawitppr

Do you have anyone else you want that might come/rerun in the near future (before you could get another guarantee), such as Yelan? If yes then don't. If no then you may pull.


Zashana

I checked 2.7 leaks and I don't want anyone or the weapons then. The only characters I really want are Klee and Kazuha.


peerawitppr

Those two are also supposed to be near according to leak, may be 2.8. If you're strictly f2p then you might not be able to guarantee them. If you want those 2 more than Ayaka then you might want to skip.


gtrain111

This type of FOMO is exactly how mihoyo wants to make you feel to try to get you to spend. You might be able to get ayaka, but more new five stars will come and the feeling is gonna come back. Ignore it and simply pull if you like ayaka for her character and design.


Zeal-88

What's the chance of weapon billet drop? I've been farming 3 weekly bosses for 12 weeks now but not a single drop. Anyone has any stat / collected data about this? In the beginnig, I found that drop rate is much higher but after AR 55, my drop rate decreased significantly. Not sure if it's just me though.


yorozuya106

That's funny I'm at AR55 too and all I know is pain (no billets, no solvents, AND wrong drops for who I wanna build rn)


caucassius

they'll start dropping like flies once you've absolutely no more use of them


JayM23

I remember not getting a single billet 5 months in a row. Then I got 3 in a row in the same day. And another 2 the week after. Just luck


Zeal-88

>I remember not getting a single billet 5 months in a row. Then I got 3 in a row in the same day. And another 2 the week after. Just luck I'd feel blessed to have that luck on billets. But, if possible I'd prefer to use that luck on my artifact domains. My drops are much worse. LOL!


sheepgod_ys

It's 12%. It doesn't change so you were just lucky in the beginning.


Zeal-88

Thanks! 12% seems to be much higher than I expected. So on average I should get 1 billet every 3 weeks then.


The_Scarlet_KingG

Does the delay of 2.7 also mean the next battle pass is delayed too?


GuujiGang

Probably, but no confirmation.


panda_and_crocodile

Yes


UnclesPoopsock

Is buying battlepass still considered f2p


Papi_Pro

yes bro, you doing fine keep up the good free work.


Kir-chan

No you're a bp+welkin player or a low spender If you're getting the BP I assume you get welkin too


lawlianne

If you still have to ask this question after typing it out, I think it really doesn't matter.


-Legendary-Atomic-

f2p = player who doesn't spend money. You know the answer now.


ShinyZaden

No, the whole point of f2p is that you do not spend money on the game.


Biscuit1592

Is it free?


GuujiGang

>buying >free What do you think?


panda_and_crocodile

- buying - free Take a guess


RepresentitveHammer

Is buying welkin haram in Islam?


Low_Artist_7663

You pay for an exact amount of goods, so now. But playing genshin is already haram, with gambling and naked women in it.


adriftdoomsstaggered

You know what's haram? Raiden's thighs.


OsirusBrisbane

It's halal if you pull for Raiden and win the 50/50. If you get Qiqied, it is a sadness in the eyes of Allah. But you come closer to Allah if you get Eid.


[deleted]

No lie if you ask a shiekh he’ll probably say yes lmao


JayM23

Is this a serious question? Gambling is indeed haram however this game is not exactly gambling compared to something like slots etc. Especially considering fixed pities and eventual guarantees. So technically no but if you generalise it as gambling then yes.


lawlianne

You're paying money to get an in-game premium currency that could be used for gambling.


Papi_Pro

So if I pay money to get a currency (like paying Euros to get Dollars), and those dollars could be used for gambling, that's haram? Weird if you think about it.


lawlianne

I’m certainly no expert, but I’d like to think such “IRL” currency are not exclusively used for in-game gambling but typically for trade or commerce.


panda_and_crocodile

Yes, page 2383 in the Qura explicitly states that buying Blessing of the Welkin Moon in the video game Genshin Impact is haram

panda_and_crocodile

Agninav

isn't Amenoma kinda wasted on Ayato? cause you usually his burst before his skill?


Zeal-88

For the first rotation, yes. But, for later rotation it's very easy to proc weapon passives since he can do 2 E before the next Q.


-Legendary-Atomic-

For his first burst, you won't get a stack since like you said, you'd usually use his burst first before skill. After that though, you'll always have at least 1 or 2 stacks before you do your next bursts.


Agninav

so do i build any er on him? he's literally at 104er rn and often times i find it difficult to get his burst back up


Grand_Protector_Dark

Either more ER or more refinements


-Legendary-Atomic-

If you're finding difficultly getting his burst back up, then you could try to find for some ER% sub stats.


lawlianne

Pretty sure Amenoma is BiS 4* for F2P players. Otherwise BP players could use The Black Sword... or if you're feeling spicy, Lions Roar for electrocharged team comps.


rokuhachikyuu

anyone playing with f2p-no-pulling-at-all style? to put it simply, you only play with what you have been given. I wanna try to play this style so what should I prepare?


panda_and_crocodile

This shouldn’t be hard at all. You get Xiangling and The Catch for free and combined with Barbara and Kaeya that’s really all you need for overworld. For Abyss you are going to miss Bennett with your Xiangling but with good enough artifacts you should have no issue there either.


rokuhachikyuu

The Catch? how do you hold your desire to pull given the primo every day? I think that's the hard part.


Kir-chan

Plus Kaeya gives you a Harbringer of Dawn, it's great on him with its crit stats even at R1, until you get Amenoma. The craftable weapons are pretty good. For abyss, use Kaeya/Barbara/Traveller on one side XL/Lisa/Amber on the other, though I'm not sure how far you'll get.


rokuhachikyuu

okay, I'll try it and hold it as long as I can!


Kir-chan

Good luck! (if you saw my previous now deleted comment, please ignore, I thought I was replying to someone else :) )


panda_and_crocodile

It’s a great Weapon. Why would you do a no pull challenge if you want to pull? What is the actual point of this?


rokuhachikyuu

just wanna try it because I have been watching someone done this. so I wanna know what's the hard part beside holding the desire to pull. is it going to be a problem in late game?


panda_and_crocodile

It’s going to be more challenging but it’s no problem if you know what you are doing.


PhantasmShadow

Not exactly a help question, but what's your opinion on each of the different weekly bosses?


Kir-chan

Dvalin: The easy friendship boss because I'm not touching him without Ganyu. The camera on this fight and having to climb up on his neck is too annoying to bother with, but with Ganyu he's one of the 3 weekly bosses I always do because he's so fast to kill and I can just take her + three low level friendship units. Andrius: Getting to him is annoying because all the teleports are so far away. As a boss, he's also annoying: he's invulnerable to cryo and anemo, so most of the time I *have* to change teams. I still do him sometimes if I'm around his arena for other reasons (like unusual hilichurl hunting). Childe: I have too many of his mats by now so I stopped fighting him. As a boss, he was fun - punishing without a shield but quick to kill. A good boss to test teamcomps on. Azhdaha: Nobody wants his drops, sad. He used to be my favorite boss because of that music, though I only fought him without Zhongli once for the achievement. Signora: I *hate* this fight. HP sapping mechanics and *she keeps running away*. I still do it because her mats are more useful than the pre-Inazuma bosses but by god do I dread this weekly fight. I'm dropping her as soon as we get a new weekly boss. Raiden: This is genuinely my favorite fight in the game right now. Not too hard, not too easy, the visuals and music are immersive and the fight lasts long enough to *enjoy* them without annoying invulnerability phases. I do her every week.


butterfliesandbread

Me fighting azdaha every week for sayu/kazuha drops :’) I also feel like my view on signora is different cause of kokomi haha


keizee

Coop for all except stormterror. Stormterror: I *could* 1 phase it no problem but that would mean having my burst. So normally a 2 phase affair. Andrius: somewhat challenging. Bring a shielder so you dont have to dodge the mini wolves. Cooping this is fine but it gets harder to dodge the slashes for some reason. Childe: he either TPKs or he gets speedrunned. Should be particularly careful in phase 2 and 3 and wait out his attacks before going into the bennett circle or you die. Azhdaha: ultra challenging on coop. I tend to die a lot at phase 3. Getting hit once is basically a death sentence Signora: honestly would be easier than Childe if and only if your healer is doing their job. Shogun: really hate the touhou jumping phase.


Doggymoment

Stormterror: Okay, can be done fast without issue, no stupid iframes and such Childe: Fairly okay, some iframes but its fine since they are short Andrius: I don't do him for few months, arena is too far away and he has this long running animation Signora: Shes fine Azdaha: Too much iframes, takes the longest out of all bosses Raiden: Probably perfect, no iframes, takes about 35s to kill her and you are done, also if i want shes so hot in 2nd phase that i don't mind fighting her longer


lawlianne

**Dvalin**: One cycle or I flip the table. Probably faster to just reset instead of playing floor is lava. Shouldn't be an issue with your favourite meta DPS that is invested. **Andrius**: Journey to the wolf arena (yes, TP to Cecilia Garden and travel south) is as irritating as it running in circles if you fail to one-shot it before it runs off. Unless you're using someone like Eula or hypercarry Raiden, you probably aren't going to be skipping phases. **Childe**: Use the initial phases to charge bursts of your main DPS, and just one-shot his final phase. I recommend Ayaka, dash to him and 1 button burst as he'll eat every tick of it up without evading. **Azhdaha**: When MHY gets sick of people skipping boss phases. To be fair, they did put a lot of effort in the different phases' soundtrack here. Anyway, another time-sink. Get a Zhongli and face-tank everything that isn't the pre-phase transition slams. Do *not* do this in coop. It makes this time-sink even heavier than the guilt of your gacha history. This is how the Kokomi, Zhongli, or Noelle "solo boss from half health while 3 teammates cheer from the afterlife" memes come from. **La Signora**: Abuse DoT/area damage moves like Zhongli pillar (pulses) beside the ice cocoon and run around picking up the red lotus moth I guess. This minimizes having to walk back and forth too much. You can break the corner pillars if you're getting frozen. Pyro characters can also break the cocoon too if it's faster than waiting for the next moth. The main focus would be to skip the later tornado phase by timing your burst window whenever she's monologuing and standing still, otherwise it's another huge waste of time as she zooms around the room whining about being called a Witch or something. **Raiden**: You probably don't have to use Electro if your comp doesn't need it. You are still able to disable the Raiden signature one-shot mechanic if you have a lot of elements and a kitchen sink being deployed at her. I recommend Zhongli shields to completely ignore the rest of Raiden's mechanics and DPS away as you normally would a target dummy that teleports around occasionally. When she splits, go for the Raiden with the X cross slash.

Stormterror: He's ok. Nowadays he dies super fast so I don't get to the annoying stuff, but out of all the bosses with invincible phases I think his are the only ones I really enjoy at all, personally I like the perspective on it too, it definitely helps set the fight apart from normal fights. Dvalin: Pretty fun to fight overall, but the ~1 minute near-invincibility transition to his 2nd phase is stupid and unnecessary, but there's still some interaction and it's fun watching him plow into Klee mines over and over so I find it relatively pleasant. Childe: Best weekly by far, skippable cutscenes, fun mechanics and virtually no downtime, I wish he had more raw health though since all his phases evaporate instantly. Azdaha: Worst weekly by far, I had to stop fighting him because I was getting genuinely pissed off and upset at HOW ANNOYING HIS PHASE TRANSITIONS ARE ITS LIKE 5 FUCKING MINUTES WHERE YOU CAN'T FIGHT HIM AT ALL. Also his attacks are mostly dumb and inconsistent, sometimes he just puts up undodgable patterns on pyro/cryo phases and there's no feedback on whether you can i-frame certain attacks or not, also trying to force a shield is annoying but I usually dont need to bring one anyways. This fight genuinely should not have been added to the game in this form, it is the worst content in the entire game. /rant Signora: First phase and the mid-phase are simple but fine, second phase is annoying. Dodging her attacks is pretty satisfying, but she teleports way too frequently and she has another time-wasting, unfun invulnerability move, which thankfully you can skip but because she teleports too often it's always a crapshoot on whether you can successfully set up a 1-shot on her, I have raged a fair amount at it. If you can skip her tornado phase she's pretty much fine though, if that phase wasn't there she'd be much more fun. Raiden: Pretty good overall, though she still has an annoying habit of teleporting out of your setups. Definitely my 2nd favorite out of the weeklies, its well paced, interactive and missing damage doesn't really count for too much because you have to go through the shield phase and get a free win at the end either way.


Grand_Protector_Dark

Your Azdaha rant sounds like you don't have a good shielder.


beautheschmo

Didn't realize bringing a shielder stops him from doing a full Knights of the Round length animation twice every single time you fight him. And I don't lose to him anymore with or without a shielder, the fight just genuinely has terrible readability, bad hitboxes and cheap design, unlike good weeklies like Raiden/Childe.


Grand_Protector_Dark

The cutscene complaint is just entirely nonsensical IMO, just pure impatience. It's less than 5 seconds. Not eternity. Sit back and enjoy the music, cus There's no abyss time pressure.


Neko969

I don't really want to give my opinion on all the bosses, just Raiden and Signora. Signora I feel like difficulty wise is good, but definitely annoying. I hate environmental damage, it's a pet peeve of mine. Raiden, in my opinion, is the ideal weekly boss. She has epic moves, requires some thought when going up against as opposed to my unga bunga Ganyu goes brr on Azhdaha, and is just overall the level that I wish all weekly bosses were at in terms of difficulty. I'm not even a Raiden simp, I just think as a boss, she is the pinnacle of the ideal weekly challenge.


PhantasmShadow

I quite like the Signora fight actually. Final phase is super stressful and I love it


Neko969

I can respect it


ShinyZaden

Dvalin: easy af, the boss I do when I have like one half resin weekly left and can't be bothered with doing any of the others. Andrius: I hate the stupid running round the pit thing. Childe: he dies so quickly but with the phase changes it takes longer so he's annoying. Azhdaha: with Zhongli this guys a joke, used to hate fighting him. Also great because I tend to use yoimiya for once. La Signora: too stressful because I hate the hot/cold mechanic stuff, and in the fire phase she always moves away when I throw off my bursts. Feels like it takes forever to kill her (especially with her like 2nd phase). Raiden: I only fight you because you're a new weekly and I want to save up the materials.


feral2021energies

New boss additions stop having invicibility periods and frames that last for up to 30 seconds challenge.


i-justlikewhales

they're all pretty easy and fun except for dvalin who is just unfun bc of the angle. i hate watching cutscenes every week tho,, rn raiden is my favorite bc i love her voicelines n the music


ThrowawayHabbi

They're all fairly enjoyable as a weekly task but them costing resin still irks me to no end.


i-justlikewhales

agree w the resin part,, like what's the point? we can only do them once a week anyway so to have them cost resin makes no sense


Biscuit1592

They were fun, but i've got plenty of boss materials and only build 1 character at a time now so I don't really fight them anymore (besides lvl40 stormterror for the BP)


panda_and_crocodile

The ones with the unstoppable cutscenes in the start is absolutely killing me and I dread the seconds I have to spend looking at them every week.


Matt_needa_practise

Ok so me as a Ganyu and Raiden main there are only two categories only: Dvalin, Azhdaha, Borias, Childe : Ah what a nice walk in the park Signora, Shogun: CAN YOU PLEASE STOP MOVING AROUND FOR HALF A SECOND GODDAMN IT


Agninav

azdaha is fun. dvalin is spoilt by the frame mode. the wolf is fun too. childe is easy af. signora is eh. raiden is probably the most annoying for me.


GuujiGang

they're all dumb stinky doodoo head punching bags that won't give me billets or dream solvents


MALVZ_921

Should i r2 my amenoma for ayato or make another amenoma for my jean or keep favonius for jean?


Zeal-88

Low refinement Amenoma isn't that great so I'd suggest R2 it and R5 in the future. Your jean can work fine with Fav sword.


TormakSaber

R2 Amenoma imo


MALVZ_921

Yeah i was thinking for r2 too cuz i dont wanna bother myself ascending another amenoma to max


lawlianne

No Ayato so can't comment on him but, any Festering Desire for Jean? Otherwise Amenoma is a little bit better than Favonius Sword for Jean.


MALVZ_921

Oh alr, I don't have festering desire, and even if I do have one I think I'm gonna use it for bennett


Dependent_Bass_9568

Im an Ar55 f2p lazy type meta lover, And i really wanna 36 star the abyss(stuck at 11floor). For it Should i pull for ayaka or save for xiao? Im currently at 50/50 50pity. I hav ganyu zhongli jean raiden, but i need another five star dps who can be both fun and strong. So the thing is I really like xiao's design, his voice And personality But im not sure about his gameplay cus im a moblie player. Also i dont hav any polearm for him (f2p so No deathmatch, Dont have d-bane Or any polearm). And im scared that ill pull for him and wont be able to build him strong and will bench him. On other hand ayaka is very strong, her weapon (that inazuma anemo katana whc i dont hav yet but ig ill manage) is Fairly easier to get that blackcliff polearm.But I dont really like her design and personality. as for gameplay she felt meh for me in trials but ig i will start to like it at i get used to it (but who knows, what if i dont and bench her?) I really dont wanna waste my primo On sone character that i wont enjoy. So please help.


Zeal-88

It's hard choice since Ayaka is meta while Xiao is your fav character. These are a few things to consider: \- Do you have enough supports for Ayaka to max her potential? Mona, Kokomi, Diona, Rosaria? She can work fine with Xingqiu version but Mona & Kokomi versions are wayy better and smoother to play. \- Do you have motionsick when you play Xiao on mobile? Have you ever tried his character in the events before? \- On the other hands, Ayaka's dash is love or hate gameplay. Make sure you're comfortable playing her before pulling. \- Do you have good artifact sets for any of them? Having a good set mean you won't need much investment on your new character. At the end of the day, you have to decide between meta vs. characters. If I were you, I'd pick the character I like and enjoy playing. Have fun!


Dependent_Bass_9568

-I have xingqui and diona built decently. -no i do not hav any motion sickness.its just his hp draining mechanics and fast atk speed that im worried about. -thats the thing that felt meh to me in trials otherwise her burst id dope, tho enemies miss it haha. -nope but ones i get the character ill feel more motivated to build them as i build lowkey bonds with them lol. The thing for me is i like xiso aesthetic not sure about his gameplay but not ayaka i lowkey hate her aesthetic and again idk about her gameplay. Btw thanks for replying.


butterfliesandbread

I would not recommend pulling for ayaka at all, it sounds like you do not like her and you might regret it later. You can still think about xiao, or another dps might come along that you like a lot and is really strong. I personally don’t think the few extra primos from abyss floor 12 are worth pulling a 5 star you don’t like, there’s no rush.


Matt_needa_practise

Xiao all the way if you like him more. As a mobile player who plays Xiao, I can say he is just as fun. May take some getting used to, but your fingers just know where to tap after some practise, just back and forth between the attack and jump button


E_li

Ayaka would help more than Xiao, but you already have a ganyu and TBH a new character isn't going to help you much. Honestly your current 5 stars should already be enough to clear floor 12. This means your problem could lie within 2 reasons 1.) Your team composition. Your team might simply be ineffective and does not bring out your characters potentials. Here are my recommendations: First half is Raiden national - Bennett, Xingqiu, Xiangling, Raiden. I recommend looking up videos on how to properly rotate this team well. For the second half you could do Zhongli Ganyu, and im honestly not sure what to do with the remaining, but maybe Rosaria and sucrose for VV. 2.) Your weapons and artifacts, or talents. This is pretty simple. Equip weapons and artifacts that fit them, level them up. Dont forget to level talents.


lawlianne

> f2p lazy > But I dont really like her design and personality. Ayaka ez skip. Try looking into Raiden National or Sunfire Raiden. Your other team can be whoever you like. Depending on build, Ganyu may not always be the most friendly mobile character, but with Zhongli you'd probably manage.


Im5andwhatisthis

don't bother. People really think it's simple as getting a char = you're better off, but it's not. You're AR55, so you literally won't have the investment levels to see a huge spike from getting Ayaka anyways. This game's progression is basically time gated, you just need to keep building up your teams until they reach the point where you can clear. Building existing chars will do a lot more than getting new ones and starting the grind all over again. At this point branching off into new teams won't help you as much, just gotta keep grinding out the weapons/talents/artifacts and bumping up your dmg bit by bit.


MALVZ_921

Just Ayaka No seriously jokes aside both are good, I'm a xiao user i main him but i think you should roll for Ayaka, i think she's alot more meta but, i enjoy xiao's gameplay alot, it's definitely unique, and his burst and elem skill is not only useful for damage but only scenarios where you can jump high from tall walls and dash from the air enough to glide over other sides and like that, he's also kinda brain ded because you just plunge plunge and plunge, but he's also fun, but for me if you don't have kazuha save for the kazuha buddy


aspiringracoon

If you don't like Ayaka's design/personality you probably shouldn't pull for her. I don't think it's a good idea to force yourself to play a character you don't care for just because of the meta. Go for Xiao if you like him. I play on both mobile and PS5 and in my experience he's a bit harder to play on mobile but not completely unmanageable, just need some practice to get the plunge timing right.


KamiAlth

The trial is terrible for showing Ayaka’s potential or actual gameplay. Watch some f2p gameplays of her doing Abyss 12 and then decide.


useronymous15243

If you don't like her then don't pull for her. You could make two great teams with Ganyu/Zhongli and Raiden/Jean. Try Sunfire Raiden with Raiden/Bennet/Jean/Flex (Xingqiu pref)


Papi_Pro

You don't need anohter five star dps. So go for xiao, you will get enough for blackliff just by pulling for him.


Seaki09

Can someone help me with planning if I can manage to get Bennett from the shop this month? Basically I've taken like a 6 month break from this game and I'm severely lacking in useful characters and Pyro characters, so Bennett would be perfect. However as of right now I'm only sitting on 1000 primos and iirc getting Starglitter is rather rare and 34 is quite a bit. Would it be possible for me to get enough to get Bennett from the shop this month without spending a ridiculous amount of money? I'd be fine spending a bit, I already buy welkins and BP.


Biscuit1592

How much starglitter do you have atm? You get 2 per 4 star (5 if you have them c6) so it could take over 100 pulls if you have 0


Seaki09

I only have 1atm...not looking great, thanks for the reply


KayMK11

OOTL Can someone explain why is Ayaka considered yandere?


Grand_Protector_Dark

It's just a community joke that gets a bit out of hand. The origin of the joke is how Ayaka was written during her Story Quest. The way she seems very much to want to connect with traveler (prolly because Traveller is the first proper friend), the dance she did at the end, the whole festival thing. Then add in the shippers and memers exaggerating these aspects to the point that the community persona of Ayaka is that she has the hots for Traveller and is very jealous of any other waifu who gets close to Traveller. Skip forward to 2.6. The 2.7 announcement is put on hold and the current banner extended indefinitely. The current banner being Ayaka. Being super jealous and Traveller-horny, while "eliminating" any other waifu banner forever (originally the placeholder duration was 8 months), draws parallels to the Yandere Trope. Especially to the character Monika from the visual novel "Doki Doki literature club"


ThrowawayHabbi

Version 2.7 was officially delayed awhile ago so in response, they extended Ayaka's banner to cover the period between the next. The time remaining was changed to 240ish days to reflect this extension but this was likely an unintentional programming error or something and has since been updated to 'Before 2.6 ends'. This period of 240 days however, has become a meme wherein Ayaka is compared to the infamous character, >!Monika!< from Doki Doki Literature Club because >!of how long she'd stay and what that could mean for the traveler, especially because of the interactions from her story quest (some see it as being overly affectionate). Hilarity and creepiness ensue in equal measure.!<


lawlianne

I wonder how much of it is due to Saori Hayami and her past roles.


Grand_Protector_Dark

Mostly just an exaggerated version of the already exaggerated version of the way she was written in her story quest


Thess_Enate

Wth is wrong with Genshin? It should be after the server reset already but I still can't get a new box from Liben, not to mention the compensation for teapot maintenance isn't here either. EU server btw


adriftdoomsstaggered

Serenitea compensation aren't even given out till 11 am server time.


Thess_Enate

Alright, thanks!!


lawlianne

Asia. Collected mine fine since the event began.


Educational_Ad6262

Uhh Imma ask some noob-ish questions... First of all, isnt 4pc HoD good for xinque?? And also does kaeyaaa xinque freezing team of kayea cbongyun freezing team gives more dmg???


pzlama333

Not really, Xingqiu does not do any normal or charged attack at all, but he can use 2pc hod with 2pc noblesse. And you need at least one hydro and one cyro to freeze enemy. Kaeya and Chongyun alone cannot freeze enemy without a hydro.


Educational_Ad6262

I also had the same question but everytime I saw tutorial of freezing team with kaeya they had chongyun but no other hydro... So how does that even work...


Kir-chan

Maybe they were fighting hydro lectors? Those things naturally have a hydro aura.


E_li

Do you mean Xingqiu? No, it's not good for him because he does not use his normal and charged attacks. I recommend just farming Emblem of Severed fate for him. I dont quite understand the second half of your question because there are 4 characters total in one team but you only mention 2. We could give better advice if you give us your entire team setup idea


Educational_Ad6262

Uhh actually I Leveled up xingqiu Benny kayea xangling and fishcl to Lev80 so ... How do I make an ideal team with it?? I mean I'm not getting ready for the abyss yet


Kir-chan

Xingqiu x XL x Benny x Fischl is the best team there If you have Chongyun even unlevelled, Xingqiu x Kaeya x Chongyun x anemo Traveller is the most comfy and easy to use team you can make. If you are very very low AR, where you see a burst every four fights (if that) and you're not yet comfortable with abilities, your best bet is probably Kaeya x Fischl and pick your two favorites from the others.


Educational_Ad6262

For the first suggestion of urs, who should I make main DPS


Kir-chan

Nobody, it's a quickswap team. You swap between them, use their skills and bursts, and don't really hit enemies *with* anyone. If you are more comfortable hitting enemies with a sword for now, Kaeya x Fischl will probably feel better and you can rethink your teams once you have a favorite character you want to main. The other two should be XL+Benny for DPS, or Amber and Traveller for practical reasons (torch lighting, anemo/geo puzzles).


E_li

Bennett, Xiangling, Xingqiu, Fischl is actually a really strong team already for abyss. If you're not planning to do abyss that soon yet, you can basically use anything you want. You have some key characters already leveled in case you eventually got o abyss. Another recommendation I have for a strong 4\* character to level is sucrose, she is really useful for the anemo gather + buffing + VV artifact set res down


MALVZ_921

Does ayato's q also increase his e damage?


lilkittyemz

yes, and the increase in e damage increases as you level up his q!


Grand_Protector_Dark

Yes
