    Who are we expecting reruns on coming up beyond Raiden/Kokomi?

    Ayaka and Kazuha are the best bets at the moment. But it's mostly guesswork.

    It's a pretty fair guess. Kazuha, Ayaka, and Yoimiya haven't gotten reruns yet. Raiden and Kokomi both released after those three. At this point I mostly just want a Kazuha rerun to happen so that I can stop hoarding so much, though. It's fun when you can just kinda roll on a whim.

    Hopefully they don't run Ayaka and Ayato simultaneously. I'd prefer to get both now that Shenhe's involved.

    Personally, after Yae Miko and doing Raiden/Kokomi reruns after Ganyu/Xiao reruns, I kinda wish they would do some dead banners for a bit instead. Or change how wishes/pity works. Or give us more Primogems.

    I want Yoimiya, Raiden and Kazuha and I have no chance of it. I haven't seen how big of a hole Yae's going to put me in but even if I get her in good time, Raiden could dunk all my primos and then there's no chance for anyone else for months.

    Well ok game.

    Came back after break to grab yae and do her weapon quest, level her up etc.

    Had enough primos to guarantee her.

    12 pulls got 1 jean (1st const), 1 thomas, 1 fischl and then yae.

    I uh guess we have some pulls to spare for ayakas bro then....

    Rumor is we might get the Golden Apple Archipelago back between Chasm and Sumeru. Don't know how they'll run that since they don't like doing the same event twice but if they do, we'll definitely get a Klee rerun for that.

    We need some events with generous reward primos because the upcoming banner lineup sounds brutal.

    Fortunately, I'm at a decent place. I was crazy lucky and got Yae Miko on my first 10 pull. Now to play the hoarding game.

    It dawns on me that without the welkin moon, the primo acquisition rate is worse than abysmal. I’m sure that’s by design to get people to buy it. But oooof.

    Ayato's kit and everything are out. He looks a bit weird, but cool as fuck. And he's hot.

    The setup to the new event was incredibly tedious, and drained me of any will to live.

    Bury me with my primos.

    Its rough, but not totally brutal. I went all-in on Raiden's first banner, threw some pulls at the Eula rerun, and still had the guarantee on Yae.

    Which is still a lot of saving and skipping some reruns I would have very much liked to get, but.

    At least the banner forecasting has improved in the double era. I rolled on Eula the first go because I knew enough about Ayaka and Yoimiya to decide I wanted sword bombs more.

    I would be in the same situation (and compacted because I’ll be out of town next week for work), but “luckily” my welkin ran out last week. So I’m taking a few weeks off to get the return bonus built up.

    Would be cool to give Yoimiya a partner, even if the ICD doesn't line up perfectly.

    I do the Welkin too. My justification is that it's cheaper than a WoW subscription and Genshin releases more content at a speedier pace (especially these days).

    Yeah, I could do with that one, it's the only event weapon I missed. Though having just gotten Widsith I'm probably okay now. Was seeing some speculation on Mappa Mare for Yae too, since she procs reactions all the damn time, though it's got a worse substat.

    If we get a rerun of the Archipelago, I wouldn't hold your breath for them doing Dodoco Tales again. I mean, they 100% should but they've never rerun a weapon you can only get from an event and while that's something that should fucking change, there isn't precedent for it until there is. If anything, there might just be a new weapon associated with it, like the second Albedo weapon/event.

    And while we're on the topic of shit that should change, the continuation of "Fuck your shield" is getting ridiculous. The Bathysmal Vishaps can direct damage you and steal your energy through your shield and now so can the New weekly boss. If they want to rebalance things, fine. They should actually do that. Not just ignore it completely.

I get a bunch of random requests from people I do boss fights with so I want to make sure I accept yours.

  • TofystedethTofystedeth Registered User regular
    Oh man I'm in no position to judge teapots. I hate building stuff in most games, especially in 3d type layouts. My teapot is like 99% entirely to grow plants and meet goals to generate primogems, so it's just got a bunch of random buildings and stuff crammed in to max out the energy.
    My ingame name is the same as it is here (and basically everywhere).

    Best kind of event besides the tower defense ones. Though I admit the origami dungeon was fun, too.

    Ugh but it requires running around enkanomiya when it’s even darker than it was before. Maybe it’s just my old eyes but this is just unplayable for me. I sent customer support an angry email and I’m not Renewing battlepass or welkins for the first time since launch. At least you would think they would have a brightness option in the graphic settings but nope. Bleh, I needed an excuse to take a break anyways with Elden Ring next week, so I guess this is it.

    As someone who hadn't bothered with this zone before, and burned through the prerequisite quest and started the new stuff in one day, I don't notice any difference.

    EDIT: It's still a fair complaint though either way. Brightness settings should definitely be a thing, and I'd prefer them to add more bright and colorful zones than stuff like this or the god damn fog island.

    I’ll admit that calling it darker now is probably hyperbole, but ever night was already too dark for me so another month of squinting is just off the table

    All games need brightness settings, agreed. But I dunno, if you think Enkanomiya is dark, I don't know how you expect to play Elden Ring. You might need to check the settings on your TV/Monitor.

    I play on my phone which I’m sure doesn’t help.

    And Elden Ring im confident should have some gamma settings as well as being able to play on an 80” tv. I’ll complain bitterly there as well if my assumptions are wrong!

    I just fought Azhdaha with a not-well-geared Yae Miko teammate and I was extremely jealous. She planted her 3 towers then basically fled to the edges of the battlefield and still did respectable damage.

    It's hilarious to me, reading about the current event, how much they're scrambling to try and fix their Zhongli problem.

    Mind you, they still would be facing this problem even if they hadn't buffed him at launch, just to a lesser extent because they decided to make Geo shields just a blanket 50% stronger

    drop attack vulnerable bounties are the best

    also a cool thing about amber is that her charge attack is basically the only bow charge move that puts a 2gauge pyro effect on an enemy, which means if u apply it first, u can literally just drop oz and he will proc 2 overloads every charge attack from her without ever applying electro himself
