Thread: Genshin Impact

  1. #241
    I keep pulling Barbara and its annoying when I want someone else lol. Thankfully, she is a really nice healer, so there's that. Also, after reading reddit for some time on breaks about the game, it doesn't surprise me that their adding more QoL features. A lot of things have been suggested that people said they did add in their other game. I think genshin impact will just get better. After all, they have the huge launch success to live up to.

    Never been a fan of use x to dbuf then switch to y for pewpew. I like to focus on one character and I'm already not interested in the main guy at all.
    That's basically the premise. Have 4 characters and swap between them in combat to utilize their abilities. Like I have a healer in my group. So I would swap to her, use her abilities that heal, than go back to dps. Or I would swap to my shield character, pop the shield up, then go back to dps. The combat is heavy about utilizing the abilities together with synergy. I'm sure you could focus on one character, but if they get beaten, you should have some capable back ups.

All I know is that my weapons keep breaking, and I'm raiding bandit camps to farm more weapons that break so I can farm more bandit camps to get more weapons that break...

    Here in Genshin Impact, there are two different towns and a village. They feel like different places with a little bit different culture. There is the Church of Anemos, which is interesting in that it is seems to be explicitly modeled after the Orthodox Church in that they have female religious leaders and the priests can marry (whereas your typical Church in Japanese fiction tends to be based off of the Catholic Church and most of the time the author seems to be oblivious to the fact that priests and nuns aren't supposed to marry). The characters have preestablished backstories, and some actual personality. For example, Dilluc is a George Washington-esque character in that he's the local respected rich dude who runs an alcohol industry and has a ton of money and helps out the community. There seems to be a Greek-esque war between gods. I generally like these people and want to help out, and I have vague idea of the history and culture of this land. The gameplay is sorta fun and I want to know what happens next and see more of the world.
    I don't believe you actually played much of BotW.

    There's multiple towns in BotW, all as filled with NPCs as, say, Monstadt. All significantly different from each other, moreso than in Genshin Impact even, since most towns are populated by a unique race in BotW (not all; Hylians have a couple towns, and Tarrey Town is a melting pot). The characters in BotW have as much personality as any in Genshin Impact. I seriously doubt you even got off the Great Plateau if you did play the game, and that's basically just a tutorial area.

    You get so much lore dumped on you, about the Age of Calamity and what's going on today, in BotW. People are constantly talking to you about events from both times, and that's over and above the CGI story setpieces.

    You couldn't have missed this if you'd spent much time with the game. So I doubt you did.

    I've been playing it since launch and I got to say that I'm pleasantly surprised how fun and unrestricted the game is, despite being a free-to-play gacha game. I was expecting to play for only a few days then uninstall, but I'm finding myself spending hours each day simply exploring the map and doing quests with no end in sight.

    I only really have 2 gripes with the game, the menus and the vertical camera sensitivity; it feels way to sluggish compared to horizontal sensitivity. I feel like I have to do like 4+ full mouse scrolls to go from looking up to down, which can make navigating and exploring a real chore, especially in Liyue with all of it's cliffs and hills. As for the menus, I dislike how clunky the artifact equip menu is and how difficult it is to at a glance compare items across characters and in your inventory. Swapping out the little chest icon with the characters face to show who has what item equipped and supporting mouse over tooltips would greatly help.

    Really wish teams consisted of another person, so much shit in the world requires Amber like stormstones, torches, frost plants, etc.. but while I like her there are others I prefer playing in battle.

    I got to rank 7 (yes, I play slow) and used the second of the promo 10-pack thing. All I want is Beidou and/or Mona but no, I got Keqing, Xingqiu, and Sucrose all in the same set.

    Now that I am out of that promo, should I be buying the one with the increased chance for Venti, just the regular character one, or maybe save until the next promo? I am new to the whole Gatcha thing so not sure what would be ideal especially since I don't plan on spending very much money, if any.
    I love Beidou and Mona. Beware though if you do get Beidou all her upgrade stuff is in the next "zone" so if you don't explore she might be stuck at lvl 20 while your others are working on the 21-40 levels.

    Venti is great just for his skill alone. If you hold it you will get boosted into the air so you can glide. I used it to get on top of the winery instead of running a mile away and gliding off a cliff to get the thing on top of it. If you don't want to spend too much money he's probably the best "fail" pull you can get plus He's an actual god.

    Maybe she is only related or possessed somehow.

    I'm going to feel really betrayed if Paimon turns out to be bad.

    Game is really fun. I'm only at Adventure level 9. Did all the things on the map and explored a lot. Finding it's getting hard to earn enough mora to keep upgrading my characters and weapons.

    I must say that as someone who rarely plays something other than wow (my last online games alternatives were GW2 for a couple months and NWO ) i do enjoy this game :P i have zero clue what im doing ^^ if im doing it right or if i have fucked up hard so far but i have fun ^^

    Im 100 percent for anything that allows us to ditch Paimon.

    To me its a blatant BotW ripoff and noone seems to notice it

    Is this game SAFE or will my PC get corona upon downloading???
    That's quite the flip.

    Don't worry, that changes. I have more Mora than I know what to do with, but I'm also not min/maxing every character constantly.

    Wandering through the country side as I go from objective to objective and picking up literally every treasure chest i see while completing the daily objectives gives me PLENTY of money and items to feed into the ones I actually have equipped.

    Maybe Paimon turns into this:


    If you dont get it:
    She becomes evil at end if you dont get it. Or we find out she is just there to spy for her god - the one that steals your powers.

    Anyway i hit world Rank 2 and now i start to have cash problems. Since to have a good party you need earth, fire, water, ice, electic and wind in all characters to be able to do some dungeons with less pain in ass. (1 of each)

    Good thing this game has at least a previev of next materials you need to upgrade character rank and weapon. Oh and some weapons that you get from suprise mehanics, are total garbage. Spear that makes more damage against slimes for example:

    Here's a tip don't try and level up all your characters, pick a team and focus on them that way you should always have enough resources to level them up. Also make quests a priority, they have great rewards and often unlock things.

    If paimon is the final boss that lead us to mess everything up that would be so cool

    I am absolutely loving this game, but my only problem with the gacha system is the Constellation system that's in place. I mean, being able to do something with your duplicate pulls is nice, but some of those Constellations are really nice...

    Outside of that, though, the number of free pulls that you get is really good. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the world as it releases. This next 1.1 patch looks to have a nice alternative to Diluc.

    My current team is Keqing, Fischl, Qiqi, and Diluc. Everything just falls over dead, it's great. At AR 27 and working on the Liyue story.

    I am having problems with finding quests. I do commissions, 4 of them then return to adventure guild. I want to see more daily quests but I cannot find them. If by some random chance they appear in the town sure, I do. But for the rest of daily quests that are all spread out on the world, I have no idea which one is where.

    I've just about fully cleared the first areas Mondstadt I think it's called. Might have a few treasures missed but I'm running out of stuff to do. Have only found 2 or 3 side quests. Not sure how many there are in the first area. My brother has played a lot more than I have and he says a lot more stuff opens up for me soon.

    Yeah I'd like to know about this too. I wish they were marked on the map.
