I've seen people get upwards of 3+ 5*s in a single pull and thought how the heck.

so I know this isn't really how you're supposed to do gacha, you're supposed to save up and spend a whole bunch at once to get a specific goal, but I decided to do a single ten-pull on the Xiao banner and got Xiao, Diluc, and three Yun Jins lol

Everybody brags about that one time they got two five-stars in one ten-pull.

I'm still waiting for mine.

Dude, I thought you meant consecutive TEN-pulls. WTF!

Managed to finish this abyss on the first try, but oh man was it close.

Full run. I was not comfortable with my rotations for A side, and my team configuration was out of order for B Side. Usually it's Noelle/Albedo/Gorou/Zhongli in that order, so through me off a bit. Still got the job done.

This Potion event is bothersome. Its like I can clear 3 of them at gold, but then struggle with a 4th no matter what I try to use. This damn Lawachurl on stage 2 just doesnt want to die fast enough for me this time. I wish you could reuse characters because my Eula would wipe the floor with every stage

Potion event started yesterday. According to the Genshin board, it is both too difficult/annoying and pants on head easy (though mostly the latter). I like it. Gives me a reason to go to my bench. Used 13 different characters - only repeats were Ganyu, Diona, and Sucrose.

EDIT: and that's not including the inefficient Noelle-Klee-Yoimiya-Ningguang team I tried to run

The three Locus areas are just small puzzle islands, there are keystones there but not any chests as I recall.

Noelle carried my ass through the early and midgame with her shields, heals, and general unkillability, but I only have her at C2 so I couldn't give her the build she deserves.

And then I ended up pulling for Itto who is her C6 but better <_<

I'll still always have a soft spot for the battle maid!

Noelle is amazing. I only wish mine was built better and had that last C already. I fucking destroyed the last set of the Potion event stages. My Qiqi felt like a monster in it which was a nice surprise. Havent used her in ages, but the new healing artifact set on her is good stuff even if mine is far from perfect. Also triple crowned my goddess Eula because why not.

Oof, finally got Inazuma reputation 9 for the treasure compass but 30 onikabuto hurts a lot when I have Itto waiting in the wings. Hate these buggers.

I haven't made the Mondstadt compass for a similar reason (I hate the climbing mushrooms and fed them all to Barbara to get her to 50 lol). Plus I have most of it explored and its chests don't give gems.

Climbing mushrooms aren't *too* big a deal as long as you make a quick circuit around Springvale every few days. There are more in Mondstadt proper and on some buildings around Dawn Winery, but that's more trouble than it's worth. There are seven on one of those windmills, though.

Onikabuto is tougher. They're not as centralized. They feel like they're everywhere as you wander Inazuma, but we haven't done much of that in a while, and until Itto's release, they also didn't have much of a purpose. I definitely value the treasure compasses, though, even if they're a bit challenging to use sometimes.

I'd offer to let you join my world and farm if you wanted, but I don't think we're the same world level.

Ive got tons of resources I think since a lot of my characters still have a lot of work to go. For this Potions event I got a bunch of supports up to lv8 for talents I think and switched some artifacts on them. It was so fun combining Qiqi with Xingqiu and Fischl even though I dunno what her optimal team is. Bennetts burst is pretty nice too now that I finally have him. His artifacts leave a lot to be desired, but he kept my Eula topped up.

I feel like I need to look at the best characters to build my DPS around still. I just toss together random stuff that likely isnt ideal like my main world team of Eula/Noelle/Fischl/Xiangling lol

recently started playing again in 2.3 after not playing since 1.6ish. i'm still nowhere near finishing any of the inazuma storyline / quests but trying to save up primogems after i just pulled eula in 2.3. my primary damage carry has always been keqing but once i get eula up to speed i'll likely transition to her.

i'm up to about 60 rolls in pity, wondering if i should be prioritizing the zhongli rerun or the leaked raiden shogun rerun on 2.5 (if i can win the 50/50)

Supposedly shields are gonna be getting clobbered soon from what I saw the Genshin board saying. Id assume its because Zhongli is just that good.

I don't have Zhongli but Raiden is nuts as a sub-DPS. One of her best weapons is completely F2P, her artifact set (Emblem) is amazing and you'll be farming the hell out of it for multiple characters anyways. Brings burst AOE and energy gain. Her flaw is that she takes time away from the main DPS but you can throw her on any team where the main DPS has some downtime. I think she's specifically great with Eula so I would recommend going for her.

I've been making do with Diona for shields and I think Thoma is viable too, though obviously Zhongli is very good I think he has better F2P subs. He is more general and Raiden is kind of a specific role.

Yeah, 2.5 leaks claim theres a new enemy that just HATES you using shields.

When their attacks land on a shield, these enemies will generate shield or heal nearby enemies of the same kind as it

I didnt leave the name of the enemy type just in case anyone cared. That sounds rough though because Ive relied on shields a lot. Hoping its not leaning towards needing all out offensive power in the future

Disgusting.

Childe National doesn't use shields so that's "fine" I guess but my other semi-built team is Yanfei/ Raiden/ Xingqiu/ Diona and Yanfei is made of fucking paper. Since I've built her I've been annoyed I only have C3 since her C4 gives her a shield when she bursts but that's...a sidegrade now I guess???

I dunno I'm still not hardcore into abyss but that doesn't exactly fill me with enthusiasm

Assuming you don't have Raiden, obviously keep Fischl. I prefer Diona to Noelle for shields, but a shield is important if you have Serpent Spine...if you don't, a bit less so. You probably also want someone to fill in the downtime period on Eula's burst, although with how hard she hits, there's no reason you can't just keep Eula out there. (Again, this is what Raiden is good for.)

For an average account, I would say Zhongli. However, if you're running Eula, specifically, that might tip the scales since she's the one team that Raiden fits into besides R-National. I don't know anything about this supposed shield-clobbering, but I can understand why they might do so from a design perspective. Also, they've been systematically clobbering what Venti is good at after he was so absurdly dominant in the first 8 months of the game, so it honestly wouldn't surprise me.

What are you using on her now? If you were playing around Raiden banner did you do the event to get the fish? Because the fish is pretty good and the BP weapon isn't much better.

I have a Snowtombed Starsilver on her now or whatever its called. Its like 48% PHYS damage boost at lv90 or something I think.

Got to 12-3 on Abyss for the first time. Both my teams only had 3 characters alive and I keep dying on the first half to the stupid hound duo. Between them warping everywhere and stacking HP drain on me even my health regen feels like it cant keep up. Maybe if Diona hadnt died or maybe I shouldve tried my other team against the hounds and left Qiqis team against the second half. Might be doable at least and this is the best Ive ever done so thats nice too.

thanks, i'll likely save up and roll for raiden shogun then and run Eula/Raiden/Rosaria + 1. Just have to start farming artifacts for all of them. And I'll be running Prototype Archaic on Eula since the only 5 star weapon i've pulled is Aquila Favonia (great for my Keqing though).
