    New code from another web event: 2T7BP4JVEBT7

    Edit: It's some exp items, food, and creds, nothing big, but it's free.

    Also, just remembered I hadn't shared my friend code (600833656) or added anyone yet. I've got my Himeko up as my rep if anyone wants to play with her. Her and Herta on the same team makes a lot of trash fights insta-wins, which is pretty fun/funny.

    I introduced myself as the premiere galactic batter entering into the second planet. March 7th was grumpy that I refuse to give my real name lol.

    I went all-in building Welt since who doesn’t like dropping black holes on groups of mobs, but so far I haven’t seen a single imaginary weak enemy in the second world. He’s still great damage and slowing mobs is useful, but I think I’m going to try dropping Natasha out of the party for trash. Killing stuff before we get hit feels like a better option anyways, and an extra dps slot should help with breaking stuff.

    Ok I’m very confused now. I just got accosted by the public property protector guards for destroying too many barrels. I fake apologized and then laughed at him when he didn’t believe me. He attacked me and got beat down, then I taunted him about how it was my right to destroy all these barrels. He swore revenge for the destruction of public property and ran off.



    And then I got another praise for high morals item…

    Um, I think these quest designers might have some questionable views on morality in regards to property destruction…

    Edit:
    Haha it’s even an achievement!

    I'm trying not to read too much into the designers views from quests or else I have major issues with an enemy type being "displaced poor workers" and with the use of Mutual Aid to describe
    a group of scammers preying on the community

    74th pull on the event banner got me Seele. So I think that's my team set for a while between Bailu, Seele, Protagonist, and Herta.

    Good bye Dan Heng, you did your job well.

    We'll see how long this blog lasts

    i really wish they had a 1.5x speed option in battle.. 1x feels kinda sluggy but 2x gets a little crazy to look at ;p
    im glad they at least seemed to have ironed out the auto-advance dialogue issues that genshin had (it would give up and stop at random times)

    I’d guess part of the issue is it looks like they didn’t just 2x the speed of animations, they actually trimmed the animations down a bit as well. It’s probably a lot of work to maintain multiple sets of that?

    The voices are trimmed a bit too.

    i've noticed that ults have a line for activating it and also for using it, but they only play the using it one when you are auto battling. I haven't noticed if it's shorter or not on the fast speeds.

    what i did notice though, is that Natasha's ult really likes her boobs. I don't know if i've ever seen a camera zoom in so specifically before.

    I'm now doubting my own memory, but I'm certain Herta says something almost completely different for her ult when going x2 speed. It's not a sped up or trimmed line, it's a completely different line.

    They need a 4x speed option really. Along with one that lets you skip Ultimate animations, or at least shortens them even more.

    Not forcing me to wait for animations to finish to skip dialog would be nice too, I can read way faster than they can act.

    Simulated universe world 3 down in the most clutch way possible. March 7th with a sliver of hp solo against the boss (who is not weak to frost) and two adds. Somehow she manages to juggle shields and plink the boss down from 20%. The last shot the boss was at 1.2% health and it was pretty epic seeing her shoot him down right between his two guards. I’m so glad I didn’t bail when it started going south!

    They are absolutely different lines. Sampo's is also quite different

    can you really trust sampo, though?

    i could only get off one basic attack every other round >.>

    You can freely switch between paths. They do have different traces and eidolons though

    Neat! Definitely a QOL improvement from Genshin.

    Probably dumb of me, but I pushed through Simulated World 3 after maxing my points for the week.

    Cleared with Seele 40, Bailu 40, Dan 30, March 21.

    Jesus. I'm pretty sure I'm going to curbstomp it tomorrow if people are clearing it like that...

    Anyways - my friend code is 600108588. I've got Bailu with her light cone both at 50 set, so have fun with immortality.

    Well, I did it with lvl 40s but it ... took ... foreverrrrrrrrrrrr. Especially the second elite's hp bar didn't seem to move at all at times. 2 hours until EU server reset, then I get to see if it goes a bit faster with a lvl 50 crew.

    Got to Equilibrium 2 today so I spent all my stamina getting together the materials to Ascend and level everyone in my main party to 50. Also got their LC's to the next level cap and tomorrow I'll have another chunk of stamina to get materials for their Traces.

    World 3 for Sim Universe should go much smoother with all of that. I could probably push through it now but I'm already maxed on weekly points and in no hurry.

    Have you leveled your light cones and traces as well? Are you using Natasha? Are your relics leveled up? The bosses were a cakewalk for me so there's gotta be something you are missing.

    And you hit the nail on the head. I just decided to try having a healer and it made everything much much easier

    You use Natasha because she is a healer.

    I use Natasha because she has a grenade launcher.

    We are not the same.

    Unlike Genshin the tank and healer roles are very helpful in this game. Natasha has saved my bacon more than a few times and the incoming damage from just regular encounters really emphasizes the need for some kind of damage mitigation.

    It does kinda suck that you've basically permanently lost a slot to a healer. Especially when there's only two in the game right now, and one's a 5 star.

    If Trailblazer Fire gave out bigger shields, or there were more shields/heal/regen effects tacked onto damage dealers or supports, there'd be more options.

    Depends on the content I think. I could see going healerless (or just Fire TB) on a lot of the farming nodes for instance, in favor of blitzing them down faster. For harder content yeah, not much choice. There's a few units with self sustain around, but not a ton of party-wide sustain yet. I do expect it will change though.

    I heard later stages of Forgotten Halls require 2 teams, which would seem to put people without Bailu in a bit of a pickle. And it's not like you can get Bailu no matter how much you spend if you aren't lucky. I guess there'll eventually be a limited healer (Luocha?) people can whale for.

    Is the daily checkin thing not working for anyone else?

    Edit:... do I have to go to the website if I am already playing the game?
