    (Sitting at 20 pity, no guarantee)

    Let's see if we can't bring Hanya home.

    First 10 warps...A Secret Vow
    Next 10 warps...Lynx E3
    Next 10 warps...Lynx E4
    Next 10 warps...Post-Op Conversation
    Next 10 warps...Lynx E5...and ARGENTI. Damnit.

    Now at 0 warps, 0 pity, and still no guarantee. My 4-star luck is horrible.

    Everyone talks up Tingyun but Asta is a secret 5* as far as I'm concerned. Big attack and speed buffs together are pretty awesome, and I've had a ball pairing her up with Welt and lapping enemies.

    I immediately pulled my second Silver Wolf, and then my 40+ pulls after that got multiple duplicates of the horrible Moles LC I will never use and zero copies of Hanya, the only thing I actually wanted. Somehow they managed to disappoint me in new and interesting ways.

    40 rolls have me one Hanya and 3 Astas, who is already E6 since a long time ago. Later I decided to try one more multiroll, because I thought I should be safe from hitting pity.

    Surprise motherfucker, my first Himeko arrived. While I still have some passes left, I guess I need to forget about Blade rerun, as I would need to roll for both him and his Light Cone to be useful, and I already own DHIL and Jingliu both.

    On the other hand, I guess now I have a quaranteed Ruan Mei?

    Ah, true. While I'm seeing some clashing information about what's actually best for him, it's at least one of his best, and I suppose you already have that prepared for him.

    I ran into that swapping Kafka to the new relic set. These first pieces I got have like no extra speed so she’s down to 127. Just means I have to keep using space sealing station on her until I get some substats

  • Options
    AshtonDragonAshtonDragon AKA The Nix Registered User regular
    It's worth noting too that if you're pairing him with Hanya, her ult grants enough to take him over 160 speed regardless, and it shouldn't have any downtime beyond the first turn if used right (barring situations where she gets CC'd or something). And if you're not using him with Hanya, I'm a bit skeptical if Glamoth is better than Inert Salsotto.

    ...that said, I admit it would be nice if he had at least 135 at base, for the sake of consistency.

    One 10 pull, and it's both Hanya, and a surprise Welt which I'll absolutely take. Now the dilemma. I'm sitting on a whopping 237 pulls,. I don't know if I want Argenti or not. I can take or leave the Tuxedo Mask personality, but I am a sucker for medieval knight imagery. Playing him in the arena though, he's nice but also just a bit boring.

    I think I might just wait for Ruan Mei, and even go for her light cone. If I'm understanding her kit right, she's just a super fucking jacked Tingyun. Her skill is +40% damage for everybody for 3 turns. +36% after a trace, for a total of 76%. Ultimate is +30% all-type res penetration, which I assume is just a fancy word for "do more damage". And her light cone is just another 24% damage, free skill point, and I assume the 10 energy on each wave effect also at least works at the start of battle. ...I'm sure her enhanced breaking gimmick might be neat too. But in the meantime, everybody just gets double damage for 3 damn turns.

    I just hope Xueyi is on her banner. Though Dr. Ratio looks interesting. I wonder if he plays nice with Topaz what with all his funny follow up attacks.

    Hanya's first text message to me was her trying to send a novel via text and then proceeding to copy paste the entire thing when the attachment refused to send.

    Someone needs to get this woman in contact with Pela

    Starting to get real depressed about my ability to keep up with the release pace of the game after this. I'm used to missing some characters, but possibly pulling zero new ones for two patches is a real mood annihilator. And I'm still stuck with low Eidolons on all the 4 star characters I have and want to use.

    If the two new modes are the bloodbath I think they're going to be, that might be it for me. I'm going to try to at least hold out to get my free 5 star, which could help, but that's again looking like two months of just buying store tickets and pulling nothing, not clearing new modes, seeing no new story, etc.

    That's not even getting into my poor Light Cone selection, which isn't likely to ever improve, since I have to save it all for the character banner. And then still not pull the characters...

    Oh jesus christ, I don't know what part of my soul I lost for this luck. Pulling for Silver Wolf E2 so I can turn her into a damage dealer since she's a mainstay on my teams. Rollin' all my stored up tickets since I had no interest in ghost-girl. Got Silver Wolf E1 last night! Awesome! Maybe I might win the 50/50 by the end of the period for her. Do my dailies and get enough to roll. Photoshopped since the roll results on profile are slow to update.

    Guess I better start farming her some DPS gear

    I'm a little confused why they didn't use the voice of Raiden Shogun for Acheron in English, when they did for every other language. But I'm also a fan of Allegra Clark, so I suppose I will need to save up, whenever she is coming. I feel like it's gonna be awhile.

    Yay, so do I take another swing at Hanya, or just start building the warchest again?

    Since I got lucky and snagged Argenti, it seems like I might now want her for gameplay purposes.

    Honestly, the way I handle that depends on whether I have the "get the banner toon" pity locked in or not. If you don't, roll on whatever might help.

    You can pick your own comfort-level on how deep you're willing to go towards the number-of-wishes pity, but to my way of thinking if you aren't certain what the 5* will be all wishes that might land a 4* you want are equal.

    Shit, with that attitude, I am never certain of my 5-star. I have been ON the guarantee for like, a total of 3 wishes warps.
    My limited warps:
    Seele, Jing Yuan, Silver Wolf, Kafka, Bailu and then Fu Xuan in the same 10, Jingliu, Topaz&Numby, Argenti

    It works for me, anyway.

    I had so many C6 4*s in Genshin... and the trend continues here, as a result.

    Now if I could just get a non-guaranteed thing unrelated to Bailu again, that'd be neat.

    i plugged my numbers back into a warp tracking thing and discovered some fun numbers.

    on the standard banner i am in the bottom 4% of players (who have imported data into that tracker of course)
    behold what the bottom 4% of standard banner looks like

    on the other hand on character banners, my 4 star luck is bottom 17%, but my 5 star luck is absurd top 10.8% and top 3.2% on rate up character.


    anyway i hate gachas because they convince me that looking into stuff like that was worth 10 minutes of my time

    Ok so that 10 draw from the 1600 they sent out was enough to get me Silver Wolf and Lynx, so I'm happy with that. Guess I'll be moving on to Argenti after all just to get him, then the LCs as the Eidolons for both of these characters seem kind of lame.

    The free 10-warp gave me...another Only Silence Remains. Since it was 1/10, I knew I was at 4-star pity, so 1 more warp got me...Lynx to E6. Still looking for that Hanya.

    According to the Warp Tracker, my Event Warps are indeed a land of contrasts:
    Total Warps: Top 17.9%
    Rate UP Luck: Top 1.9%
    5-star Luck: Top 42.1%

    Apparently the Geniuses Repose LC is decent for Argenti so I've got my S5 copy slapped on him now. I wanted to do Another Peaceful Day since that seems to be his second best, but mine is only S1 since it's a BP cone.

    Gear is going to be the issue, I haven't done much farming of that cavern so while I have nearly the max of 1500 relics (really need to do a cleaning) very few are the Physical set so a-grinding I shall go

    No these are all 5 stars, I already got rid of all my blues and purples. I just hold on to a bunch of gear because I don't like going through and evaluating the niche pieces, since I don't want to throw out something I might actually use.

    Right now I've mostly just jettisoned all my Meteor Thief pieces since I've never used any of them. Next I'll go through Musketeer pieces and toss out the stuff that isn't useful for Supports since at this point damage dealers have their own sets and Musketeer piles up anyway so no big deal keeping something niche.

    Spent a week farming the latest relic hellhole and I haven't gotten a single usable chest/feet piece for either set. No crit chest for the FUA set, no EHR chest for the dot set, no speed boots whatsoever. So I salvaged a ton of junk and crafted 7 boots. No speed boots.

    *sigh*

    Sometimes the relic grind just gets to you, man. Getting 0.2 relic's worth of crafting junk from the daily event thing just feels like it's rubbing salt into the wounds.

    MoC 10 done for this cycle. First half I obliterated while trying out my newly leveled E0 Hanya. Second half I ended up just barely finishing in time with 21/20 cycles using Seele/Bronya/Bailu/Fu Xuan. Wish I had Jingliu for that side but alas.

    i had to swap to a loucha + gepard setup for the top level of these ghost challenge towers. the elite just one shot loucha. It's kinda cool to have some higher tier fights in these events. It also feels smart that they put them "after" the tiers with jade rewards to kind of get ahead of complaints about people that want to just be given rewards.
