    So I got hit quite a lot and animation cancel is not something I want to do "all the time".
    But she deals good damage even without canceling or just doing it with charged attacks etc. (which is easier imho).

    So I'm more or less looking at power level here.
    Klee is my alltime favorite character so far, but I can see myself enjoying Hu Tao too, since she is just as much a troublemaker as Klee (well, probably slightly less).

    So since I can see myself enjoying both characters, the question is, who will be easier or more fun to build teams with.

    I like that Klee deals extra damage on constructs.
    I like that she has a very high Charged attack multiplier which is almost as high as most ultimates.
    If I had her at C2 or C4, I'd enjoy her even more due to her "support"

    I like that Hu Tao is HP% based, easy to equip, gets a lot of power from useless stats
    I like that Hu Tao buffs the rest of your team with 12% crit.
    I like that Hu Tao's powerlevel seems to remain the same, no matter how many Constellations you have.

    I dislike that Klee kicks around enemies more often - but that can also stun larger enemies.
    I dislike that Hu Tao has downtime, but that also allows other characters to be used.

    If it wouldn't cost 200€ to buy a character, I'd go with both, but now I have to make a decision somehow.

    I'm currently leaning towards Klee, but I'm scared that Hu Tao is absolutely busted and deals like 2x her damage.

    I think my Team with Hu Tao will be something like Xianling as 2nd pryo unit (dont have klee sadly), Diona as support und either another unit like Xinqiu for reactions (and mine is built quite solid with 6/6const. and full upgraded Noblesse) or with a more utility unit like Sucrose, where I tend to the latter.

    I currently have a good pity count of 72 and saved enough for a second rotation, but I agree with you that the real money cost for a unit is just absurd.

    Number's look strong on her, at least whats datamined so far, but those can still change til release. Although I'm 99% sure that I will roll for her, I still will test the trial and look at some showcases first when she releases.

    Probably because it was a harebrained campaign from the beginning. They had two options:

    1. Give everyone a lot of Primogems and make it look like their playerbase was tiny.

    2. Give everyone a handful of Primogems to reflect a large playerbase, and piss-off said playerbase with how pitiful the reward was.


    It's a no-win situation.

    I got 108 as well but i read that some may have got 188 or even 288

  5. #5205
    108 for doing nothing but releasing lanterns is pretty good imo. Certainly take it over the tons of chores the latern rights had.

    I think the easy answer here is, wait and see I personally do not think Hu Tao will be straight up broken like Ganyu but more so that her damage will be insane because she only has 9 seconds to do it, but it will balance out I think. It remains to be seen. I did some calculations though, and um...with r5 staff of homa she will be stronger than ganyu but that's with r5 so not accessible to most people.

    My issue with Klee is not that she's squishy (even though that is a big issue), it's that I hate the animation cancel playstyle that gets the highest efficiency out of her. Why do I hate it? Well, for one it's boring to execute, but also because you have to switch to charged attack when you get the proc but the thing is the procs don't trigger immediately and it's impossible (for me) to see. And I know that I can just alternate between normal and charged attacks without worrying about the procs but that just feels meh to me too. The other big issue is that she's a catalyst. The amount of times I've been in front of a specific mob and it would turn her around to target another one, far too many. Catalysts just seem to have weird aiming behavior in this game. Idk if it's a controller thing or what, just never behaves properly for me.

    I mean, anything that gets shown off in this game is either luck or paid. There's no much skill involved. I see tons of "3 second abyss 12 clear" vids, but it's just massive whales, nothing to be seen here.

    Don't use the trial for anything other than how the character itself "feels". They won't have anywhere near optimal comp in there.

    I'm personally not on xing hype train to pair with Hu Tao atm. I will see how it actually plays out in reality but I just don't see it working out very well. I've been going back and forth between different comps but I think (for now) I will settle with party of hu tao - chongyun - albedo - zhong li. Mainly because geo resonance + zhong li debuff and an r5 gravestone will make chongyun quite strong with his burst and then proc melt for hu tao's burst. Then farm up 4pc bolide set. Not the best but not bad. In simulations I'm sure xing will net highest dps but I just don't see it working out, like I said. Will wait to be proven wrong

    Another thing is, I'm waiting for the rumored standard character banner in 1.4. If it is indeed Diluc, I'm pairing xing with him, no questions about it. Also will give the wgs to diluc and then re-evaluate. haha, it never ends.

    This is a different thing, you gotta log on to the event site again to claim the lanterns reward.

    ok https://twitter.com/lumie_lumie/stat...67880854962178

    Looks like that will be good melt enabler for hu tao. I wasn't sure how often it'd proc. Seems frequent enough.

    I'm actually currently running double geo on my current "main" team with Keqing as main dps, Xinqiu for ER, Ninguang sub dps and noelle as support wit 2p boulders and 2p maiden. Not the strongest heal but it works and is quite fun to play. Sadly I dont have albedo, zhongli or Diluc currently.

    I do have chongyun but never played with him until now. If I want to go double fire I only have Xianling, Benett or Amber. Benett could be an option as support instead of Diona (which I could switch into my second freeze comp team with Ganyu) but I'll have to see how it works out. I think the internet will be flooded with guides/comps/ideas anyway when she comes out. I just hope it's really next week, because there is still no announcement if I saw it correctly. The thing thats keeps my hope up ist the staff of homa banner which aligns perfectly.

    If a Diluc banner is coming, I'll probably skip him since I want to be safe for Ayaka when she releases (wheneaver it actually is this year).

    It is next week. It's already been datamined. If mihoyo randomly decides not to release it next week for w/e reason, they'd be a joke of a company tbh.

    This is just my speculation based on there being a rumor about 2nd banner being a character from standard banner because 1. he's a monstadt character and 2. he would bring the most profit for mihoyo. I'm not so sure Jean or Mona would bring as much hype, but maybe I'm wrong on that idk.

    Oh, there's another reason now I just realized. For all those people who got unlucky and ended up with 6 wgs, and then diluc comes on next patch? It would tempt them to roll on it. It just makes too much sense.

    It has to be. I guess the speculation that they don't want to talk about Hu Tao during the Chinese New Year period due to her association with death must have been true. But it's been 2 weeks now. There is literally no reason they would have been holding with the next banner info for so long if that wasn't the case. I'm fully expecting the announcement today (or tomorrow, depending on your timezone). I was actually checking their Chinese website for a few hours, since it's technically 27.02 in China already. But they probably aren't going to release the announcement in the middle of the night.

    Mona would probably bring equal if not more hype than Diluc since her ass is the most important thing about her and possibly the game according to the art that the community has flooded the forums and subreddit with.

    There's a chance it could be tonight cuz it would be noon over there.

    I'm definetly ready for Hu Tao. Farmed Ascenion materials for at least lvl 80 by now and Talent books are enough too. Going with deathmatch from the BP since I don't roll on the weapon banner (and probably never will).
    The downside is I'm writing my last exam of university next maintenance day and I'm so not ready and not motivated xD
    At least one thing to look forward to afterwards on that day.


    Although I only have Keqing from the original 5* units, the one I would want the most would be Jean from them. I wouldnt even mind if I lose my 50/50 pity and get her along the way (72 rolls in currently, so more or less the next 1-2 it is, since I'm hitting softpity with the next multi).
    I'm not convinced of Barbara and Benett (not in terms of effectivness, just not my cup of tea) and Noelle being good and fun, but not the full fledged support (probably going full dps in the future bc she's fun), I really would like to have Jean besides Diona for one of my 2 teams as support.

    For EU, yeah, that would be tonight. I'll be very surprised if I wake up tomorrow and don't see the announcement.

    I managed to get 288, I made sure i cycled through and did every wish there was, maybe that had something to do with it? Chances are it was completely random to hide the actual player numbers

  19. #5219
    So hu tao's blood blossoms doesn't trigger on initial hit. Next thing to see is how her energy regen is.
