    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

    Ooh. That means it'll always be using Fischl's EM for the damage, right?

    So, I've been talking about Genshin to a friend of mine lately and he was interested enough in the game that I figured I would stream some of it to show him what it was like and whatnot. And I decided to stream my wishing session for Yae Miko so I could show him just how much pain the game can fit into it. I started the stream with enough primos and whatnot for 205 wishes because I've been saving since November (besides a couple ten pulls for Shenhe to snipe her which means I was at 1 Pity) so I'm like, "No matter what, I can get Yae Miko, I can show off how hard/soft pity works", I can get some Fischl and Thoma constellations hopefully, etc.

    First 10 pull, I got Yae Miko. I explained the 50/50 and all that as a means to be like "the first 5 Star I pull, when I get it, is probably going to be one of these 5" and everything and then just, 10-pull, receive Miko. Still cannot believe that luck.

    I did some more 10s to try and get Fischl and Thoma still, only got 1 Fischl but I got another Sacrificial Sword, so I'll take that. By the time Raiden comes out, I'll probably be able to weather another potential two hard pity scenarios so we'll see if I can get her too or if I've changed my mind then based on what we know to expect beyond that.

    50 pulls, no Yae. Tempted to just stop pulling let the primos build back up for Raiden. Guess I’ve got two weeks to think about it.

    Monthly shop fates got me a Skyward Atlas from the standard banner. That's pretty damn nice, didn't have a 5* catalyst before. I've actually been using a lot of Yanfei lately, so she will certainly appreciate that if nothing else.

    Nice. I'd forgotten the starglitter fates reset today until I read that. So I bought mine, and from the standard got my first Gorou and my first 5 star weapon. Aquila Favonius or something. A sword.

    And then with my intertwined and the 10 I had gems for I got a Yae. I think I was at maybe 50 total for the event so that's not bad.

    If nothing else, the Aquila Favonia is tied for having the highest base attack of all swords, thereby making it a fantastic choice for Bennett even if he doesn't care about the physical damage bonus. Base attack is all he really cares about.

    Got another Rosaria with the 5 permanent wishes. Slowly approaching the soft pity.

    Sadly I think I’m gonna pass on Yae. Raiden is inarguably the better get, and with 52 pity and a guarantee, I can hopefully get her quick, then either try to snipe an early Kokomi or (probably the better option) bank for Kazuha.

    Yeah, there's no contest between them. Raiden is just ridiculous.

    I got around to her final ascension and then decided to push her to 90 because I had enough stuff on hand for it. Still need more mats (I've burned so many hilts on her and Yae's skills and ascensions...), but her burst is going to end up being where my first crown goes. (Eula's burst is probably going to be second)

    Not sure who I'm going to pull on next - I'm near soft pity, so I could push to that on Raiden to try for c2, Kokomi for taser nonsense, or just keep saving.

    Raiden is good, but she does not have a fox tail when plunge attacking. This is important.

    I mean, they really didn't do an already-unpopular character any favors running Kokomi against Raiden.

    She's pretty handy to have, though, especially in a damage-off-field characters / fuck-your-shield meta. You could do worse than to give her a shot.

    Sometimes, there’s 4-stars you want, and sometimes, it’s Sara, Xinyan, and Bennet.

    That’s who will be boosted with Raiden/Kokomi.

    Nothing wrong with them, but Bennet already has the C6 ! taunting me and I don’t really use the other two.

  • PolaritiePolaritie Sleepy Registered User regular
    Hmm, yeah. I've got Sara c4 and Bennet c5. Still might go to soft pity on this but I really don't need anything here.

    I was kinda hoping that Sara wouldn't be on Raiden's banner, but I was also expecting that she would be again. I'd like to take her to C6, but I'd rather save for other characters than roll for Kokomi or constellations for Raiden.

    I want more Fish Power but not badly enough to chase it with Ayato and a likely Ayaka rerun incoming, especially after the gift Shenhe.

    Plus, Sara's the only 4* on there I don't have maxed.

    My weapon banner is very near pity if they ever run a dang Greatsword again, at least.

    kshu0oba7xnr.png

  • Darth_MogsDarth_Mogs Registered User regular
    I don't have any Sara and only Bennett C2, so I'm okay with that. Xinyan is C6, though, so I'm sure she'll be all I get like Diona with the Yae Banner.

    Finished up the last of the crimson wishes the other night so now I've finished Dragonspine. There might be a couple chests laying around I haven't found but as far as achievements go I've got everything there.
    I actually have 1 random agate left over, cause there seems to have been 1 more laying around on the map than required to get the tree to level 8.
    Same with anemoculus.

    With Kokomi, I now have a proper Ayaka freeze team with no overlap with my Hu Tao vaporize team. It doesn't look like Kokomi's C1 is terribly important, so I'm going to save my primos in hopes for a chance to get Kazuha next.

    Spent my gems and got c3 Jean and c1 Ei. Think I'll just keep spending and see if I can get lucky before the banner ends. If I get another off banner 5*, I'll probably just save until Eula's next rerun. Having my whole main team at C2 is my immediate goal.

    Jean was my first 5-star and I still use her for support. Plus being able to yeet enemies off cliffs is always satisfying.

  • ShadowfireShadowfire Vermont, in the middle of nowhereRegistered User regular
    Jean is just great. She's fun to fuck around as a main DPS in non-abyss stuff because she can dish out plenty of damage, and yeeting never gets old.

    Since I have aquila favonia, I should probably build jean at some point. What set/stats does she want?

    I assume the new heal> deeps one?

    If Jean's going to be your only Anemo unit in a party, a good VV set is the way to go. Swirling isn't her main focus but she can do it often with her skill and burst having pretty short cooldowns. You can build her to focus on hitting things decently hard (she's not going to carry but she can deal some good damage) better than you can build her as an EM machine, though, like you would a Sucrose or a low investment Kazuha. Atk% Sands, Anemo or Physical Cup, Crit Circlet. Crit, Atk% and Energy Recharge are what she wants, like most others.

    If you're pairing her with another VV, then Ocean-Hued Clam is an option to make her Burst deal even more damage and heal even better (not that she needs it, her Burst will generally bring your team back to at least 60-75% on use pretty easily and then full if they're on field) or Noblesse to get the buff with your healing burst.

    There should be a recipe to build an ornamental oculus for your teapot so you can get it out of your inventory.

    There are lots of "keepsake" items that stay in your inventory which would be great to display in the teapot. But I suppose the item limit issues would need to be fixed first.
