    Looks like the stream for the next update is getting delayed, and may end up with the update itself delayed. Hoping the best for all of them.

    for the long-prospect primogem maximisers this might be optimal

    Things are doubtlessly rough for the developers, so I certainly understand a delay. Plus I spent all my primos getting Mistsplitter because I main Ayaka and am a damn fool. I need time for to save for Kazuha.

    Regarding the delay, it sucks, but delays happen. No sense complaining about it.

    I hope they at least give us another banner rerun in the meantime. Leaving us with nothing or extending the Ayaka banner would be kinda lame.

    It would be hilarious to just randomly drop in a Kazuha rerun for giggles. Just "hey everything is shit, thanks for the extra cash!"

    No, leave the Ayaka banner til I get C1 on Sayu so she's usable. -_-

    I wonder how far along in advance they plan banners. There's usually a story, lore, or thematic reason around most of them. Then again Venti didn't have much of an excuse to be rerun, so... Either way, I'd assume they'll probably pick a character or two and rerun them for a bit. No patch and no content is fine given the circumstances. But having no outright character banner would be weird.

    I think Venti got his recent rerun due to the absence of a spring event in Mondstadt.

    They should redo the "basic banner" as 3 regional ones you unlock at story breaks that preferentially roll 4*s and selected 5*s from those regions.

    No change to Mondstadt, add 1 character for Liyue (Ganyu? Xiao?), make Inazuma be Kazuha, Yoimiya, Ayaka or similar.

    I don't have a very good PC. It would be an average one, but I don't have a video card anymore and just run off of the intel integrated display, which actually works well enough for what I use it for. All that said, yeah the events on a web page run terribly, which always kind of depressed me, like this thing can't even run fancy flash graphics. Knowing it happens to people with good PC's actually makes me feel a bit better. :) All that said, running in a full sized window runs terribly, but shrinking the window down to about the size of an actual tablet makes it run a whole lot better. So I'd say give that a try.

    Can't say I've ever had a problem with web events, so I'm curious what the problem is. I guess I do use FireFox, but I really doubt that Chrome is the problem.

    i googled around a bit and its definitely just one of those like... on some setups it just doesnt work and then is totally fine on others

    maybe hardware acceleration but i simply accept it is a mystery of the universe

    i have discovered that with the power of Microsoft (tm) Edge (tm) it runs beautifully and not only does it run beautifully but my life has turned around, my skin is flawless and I can hear birdsong

    For shits and giggles I also tried loading the site in Firefox, and holy shit does it run smoother. In Chrome it was always revving up the damn CPU fan.

    So it's Chrome being shit. Good to know!

    ... apparently the game would rather give me Ayaka constellations than C1 Sayu.

    Far be it from me to complain, I guess?

    It appears that Ayaka's banner will be extended rather than running a filler banner during the delay.

    They could have at least switched the Unforged with a good weapon.

    Who is good with the Unforged? Maybe Beidou?

    i guess any team where you have a claymore atk scaling dps with some kinda geo support situation too w/ petra and yun jin/whoever would work

    Literally anyone on the same team as Zhongli. That's the main use-case; Noelle, Xinyan and Beidou are secondary at best.

    It also packs a ton of Attack onto one item, freeing your Sands up for EM / ER as appropriate. Def, too, if you put it on Noelle, come to think of it.

    I have an Unforged from trying to get… Raiden’s spear?

    I don’t know that it’s a bad weapon, but certainly not interesting. And it suffers a bit from having no apparent relationship to an existing character. Like, I put it on Noelle, but I don’t know that she really wants it.

    It looks pretty cool, I guess.

    Sure, I'll take it. That'll add a decent chunk of gems to the fund for... eh, whoever I end up going for after Yelan probably, pretty sure I have a guarantee for her already.

    Someone mentions Beidou and I must answer.

    It's a very solid choice for her. Almost strictly worse than the Wolf's Gravestone, but it's at least in the same ballpark, especially if you do a couple hits before activating her burst and snapshot the buff. It's also probably worse than the Serpent Spine, but if you're free to play and don't have the gravestone, it's a good choice for her. I still don't recommend rolling for it though.

    i feel like the chaddest beidou build is u go c6 bennett and just trigger an explosion with ur autos

    shes an exploding sword kind of character, fits her vibe

    Not activating c6 Bennett is the coward's way.

    So I'm sitting at AR50 blocked by the ascension quest that says I should be level 90 to take it on, how hard of a requirement is that? Right now my main party is Klee (80), Fischl (70), Bennett (70), and Venti (79), and bumping even just Klee and Venti with my current resources just feels like a herculean task. That said, I don't want to stare at level 50 until the end of time either. Is the quest realistically doable with my current party?

    should be trivial i did it with starters mostly at 70
