    I'll provide an example: my two DPS that I have maxxed and competent for my AR are Diluc and Lisa. I want to farm for more optimized witch stuff. I need to be able to clear it without dropping tons of resources on a bunch of people who aren't part of my main squad. I can rando-queue into a group and use my lesser supports and still get stuff and it generally turns out fine. I save resources by not having to boost people I don't care about and I get to farm for my items still. Win/win.

    To add onto this, she's isn't just a pirate captain, she's a pirate captain who supposedly beat up a freaking sea monster with her own bare hands. And without a Vision too, since that is how she earned it in the first place.
    Also, it doesn't really make sense that Fischl isn't a 5-star considering her outfit. i think in some cases having really cool attainable 4-star is also important for marketing.

    I tried getting some domain artifacts and it's so frustrating spending resin and getting garbage artifacts. Like.. I could have spent that resin on talent books or exp books instead...

    Oh yeah, Fischl is an even better example. Not only is she amazing from a gameplay perspective, but she seems to push all the right buttons for most weebs. It would be interesting to be a fly on the wall during the meetings where they discuss who is and isn't worthy of being branded 5*.

    As I understand it, that's why you max out everything else on your characters first, before you try to min-max your artifacts. Plus, you already have a chance of getting serviceable artifacts from the bosses that need Resin along the way.

    Yeh I just don't want to waste resin on upgrading sub-par artifact so a ton of them are sitting at like +4.

    I mean...you'll be farming for quite awhile trying to get the perfect stats. None of the content requires fully optimized artifacts. I'd probably be happy with just 1-2 good substat and ofc has to be good main stat.

    I think you're hurting yourself more by sitting at +4 than having not having 100% optimized artifacts. Unless your luck is that bad that you don't even have any good main stat artifacts lol (rip).

    I'd probably get them to +8 or +12. It's relatively cheap and either gives you more sub stats, or upgrades them, as well as a bunch more of the main stat. It only really gets expensive in the +16 or +20 range

    Not to mention that you don't lose a whole lot of artifact exp if you feed the leveled ones to another.

    Looking for team advice. Asked around quite a bit, and keep getting a few different answers- which is understandable. Looking for additional opinions.
    Currently I have been using Diluc, Xiangling, Fischl, Barbara. Seems to work pretty well- Xiangling gives me the resonance, Fischl+Diluc give me Overload (main elemental reaction). I can also get Melt with Barbara+Diluc. Barbara for heals, Fischl for any range purposes.

    I have heard late game, though, that Overload falls off compared with Vaporize/Melt.
    I have all 4stars available (including Diona), as well as Mona. Most are C0-C1, though my Barbara is C5. Should I be trying to get Bennett in there? I don't really like how he confines you to his area of effect, but obviously useful for Abyss. What about Sucrose? I've seen teams with Chongyun, is that melt/atk speed better for my team (same issue with confining you to an area). Does Mona work well in a Diluc team? I tried her a few times, but I don't think I have her leveled/geared well enough to make it shine, and I'm not sure who the other team members would need to be.

    I'm just looking for best/most effective/fastest for exploration/bosses, and then I eventually need two Abyss teams. Any thoughts/help would be greatly appreciated!

    Ok from what you have (and lets ignore free to play character), you clearly lack a earth element (for shielding).

    Diona+Mona+Fischl+Diluc should work pretty well. (you can switch mona out for barbara is you need heals)
    Trow down mona tank skill, switch on diona and trow her aoe (everything will frezze), then bird with Fischl and finish off with Diluc.

    If you have Sucrose, you can use her with any of those 3 characters in setup (but you need to have at least C1 on her or CD is to looong).

    - - - Updated - - -

    Anyway some news:
    Zhongli's passive - When crafting spear type weapon, return 15% of the used mining material. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

    Also seems like rewards go up by world lvl (screen is from other servers where event is up):



    Much better than 25 i say. Its unknown wich world lvl this guy is tho.

    Sounds good, thanks! I appreciate the group suggestion, and how to use it. My Sucrose is only C0, unfortunately.
    Any suggestions with how to split those/add to them so I have two teams for Abyss?

    Well you need 2 healers , 2 fire users, 2 ice users, 2 water users and 2 electic users at minimum.

    Setting your characters realy depends on the lvl of the abyss and elements that are effective against monsters.
    So if you see a fire mage in enemy team, you use water like Mona. If you see those guys with hammers, you chose those with ice.
    You cant just go with specific team into this as you will just make it harders (and some characters on some lvls are usless).

    General build is Support (shield.. most of those heal) or pure Healer with a mix of 3 effective elements against monsters on next 3 floors.

    In other words, before you go to next floor, check the monsters and set your team in a best way to handle all 3 waves. But i gota warn you, its designed in a way to make you want spend money on new characters and lvls rise up realy fast after 8 floor. Pay to win streamers make it look like a joke tho.

    How do I get in contact with customer service or someone who I can ask/report something to

    On floor 10 (edit: forgot to mention the floor number), the DoT effect interrupts characters every 0,5s and there is no way that this is intended. I can't even get rid of the buff since it interrupts Barbara's E
    It's so *fucking* annoying. I never had so many problems on this floor and it certainly wasn't there before.

    Discord - doesn't work
    Homepage - how the fuck does that work? Is that even a forum or just some twitter-ish bullshit
    Ingame report function - no such thing?

    Shit - that's some nice resin/xp books ratio
    too bad that stuff is limited but I'm certainly going to grind it all out.

    Why wouldn't you invest in multiple characters though? It's likely every new zone is going to have new elemental bosses do you really wanna be carried through 65% of the content because you wanted 2 op dps? I have only one 80 at Adventure lvl 44 and several 70s and 60s I'm able to do all the 80 dungeons just fine even when I can't use my main. I don't have Diluc but I assume his normal attacks are physical dmg so you should beable to elemental burst with your weaker chars.

    In fact, if you use the wrong element, you just kill yourself from the penalty.
    I can't do the Pyro Artifact dungeon *at all* for example
    And I still 1-phase Stormterror on AR45 and I can actually clear Abyss (although Floor 12 in Abyss is just with 1-3 stars)

    Even if I swap gear around, the level difference between mobs and my correct-element-character is like 20-30 lvls, so the damage they deal is horrible, no matter what.
    I'm sure I'll have a problem doing adventure lvl 45s at mostly 70s but so far I've been able to solo everything just fine and its not like you are supposed to perfectly clear the newest dungeon as soon as you unlock it. It's the bare minimum level they suggest you attempt it at.

    Just fyi.

    You need roughly 420 Purple books from lvl 1-90.

    4 2 0.

    So you should really grind that shit during events and forget about everything else except for the very limited stuff (such as the crown/characters).

    I'm so not going to level any character to lvl 90 until I can't go any further.
    It would be such a waste to bench him/her at some point because a new unit came out that is more fun to play with.

    Maybe in half a year or so - when I can say "I won't change this team, these characters are all awesome".

    But so far, I don't really have a set of 8 characters that I really really want..
    I'd switch out Sucrose instantly if a better Anemo character appears (I don't like her style, even though she is strong)
    Same with Xiangling
    Same with Barbara
    Same with Bennett
    Same with Noelle etc. etc.

    The only characters I really don't want to switch away from are Keqing, Klee and Fischl so far.
    I do want to add Beidou but I have no idea in what team to put her without wasting Klee/Keqing potential.

    I do not really want to add Xingqiu but I really need that interrupt resistance - what a shame. I can't really wait for a new 4* in that regard.

    I really wonder how a water-claymore character would look/play like.
    Same with Frost Catalyst. Or Anemo Claymore.

    Can't wait to see these combinations in the future.

    Does Klee want the 4-piece bonus from the Burning Witch set...?

    Very rarely will she be the one triggering the reactions, so it isn't super good on her. Who are you running her with? IIRC, it's mostly usable with XQ support if you're at the correct distance. Otherwise, Lavawalker all the way.
