    Darn, didn't expect the servers to be down before work.
    Seems like I'm going to cap out on Resin for the first time.

    I decided to skip Hu Tao and build Noelle instead.

    I got very decent gear (the only bad item is the geo-cup) on her

    @ lvl 70/70 she has 1700 Defense, 1300 ATK, 50% crit 100% critdmg (sweet ratio) with a lvl 80 Whiteblind.
    Whiteblind only @ R1 but oh well, who knows, maybe I get lucky someday.

    So I guess I have my "ATK monster" already and don't need Hu Tao for that. I'm not willing to spend 200€ for her weapon anyway.


    I'd reckon at lvl90 (with lvl 90 weapon) her Def will be around 2100 and ATK at 1400.
    With R12 Burst, that translates to 4130ATK without Bennett and without Whiteblind Procs.
    Too bad I don't have Zhongli to go alongside her for that Geo Res reduce.

    And the Fire items I farmed for Hu Tao(which sadly had a good chunk of +ATK on them) will simply go to Klee with her new Skyward.


    edit: guess my launcher is just bugging out. Servers are online.

    I'll be honest. I don't like Xiao much. Sure he does a lot of damage but the constant jumping with the atrocious camera angles is really nauseating. He does more damage than my keqing though lol (at lv 70), kinda sad.

    Take them or leave them I guess, it's just to promote the community page/hub anyway and not an actual ingame event. Just like the 1 billion primogems thingy.
    I'd personally not bother with it, except for maybe the first login reward (100gems)

    It's long past, and I was banned at the time so I couldn't really make a post when it was relevant, but since you've reintroduced a thread I can tug on:

    I really think they will need to go back at some point and do some tuning. They cannot just power creep like they have been. Ganyu, Xiao, now probably Hu Tao... You said "ofc they'd do diluc banner instead of mona because they like money", but people buy power in gacha games first and foremost, so no one will spend a dime on "old hasbeen" characters if all the new characters are always the most powerful. They'll just wait for those new characters instead.

    I have no idea what level those rewards are good at except maybe a fresh, level 1 account. The primo gems are nice just because their free, but beyond day 21 I won't be trying.

    Well, when Zhongli was only "average at best" there was a huge outcry about it. The community got what it deserved.

    Although I can hardly say that Xiao or even Ganyu are that much better than Diluc/Klee for free2play (that means C0).

    Ganyu is good, Ganyu is strong - I could do everything she does with Diluc just as easily though.
    Diluc is a real powerhouse, so is Klee.
    Don't know about Xiao since I've never truely seen him in action, but I don't see much of a difference between him and Ganyu and thus not much between them and Klee/Diluc.

    Ganyu C6 is way more insane than I imagined it though. Seeing Ganyu C6 gameplay is just so powerful. Those instant Charged Shots are just insane and completely underrated by most players

    But what you are missing is that these games have "Ascensions".
    This game has both Ascension passives and constellations.
    At some point in time you get to "advance" a character further and that's when weak characters get buffed.
    In most games, this is called "Awakening".

    That's when talents/skills get enhanced with some additional effect or new constellations or new passives.
    They could also add character specific weapons and stuff like that.

    It's also worth mentioning that Hu Tao, once actual Co-op content is out, is garbage for that kind of content and characters like Noelle/Jean, are super strong since they can both heal and do damage.

    Any tips for floor 11-2?

    I managed to clear it 1 time but with zero stars

    My tactic is messy but i will share here.
    With Ningguang on Team 1 you can WALL the 2 archers and keep them there the entire floor.
    DONT KILL THEM
    Just use the wall in front of them and keep them there entire game

    Then you can kill ever mob in a messy way or however you want to do it (i dont have a tactic here)

    Once you kill every mob...you can start killing the archers.

    Team 2.....i need help here....is very messy

    Also:

    You can also use geo traveller to block the monolith. There's also the trick that anemo traveller's E taunts mobs if you channel for the full duration, that's been the only way out of this chamber for me. You pretty much have to use your better team for 2nd phase, since the mobs are much tougher and both treasure hoarders and cicin mage's flies just lock down on the monolith. And if the mage happens to teleport randomly and start channeling right on top of the monolith, that's 30% hp more lost automatically.

    Why is this a webpage, and not something in-game ._.

    Maaan, F- this... I don't want Hu Tao for my team, I just want to have her and enjoy the sillyness here and there that goes along with her.. Why can't I get lucky and just pull her in 10 pulls or something.

    I didn't have any trouble skipping Childe, Zhongli or Xiao, even though I really enjoy Zhongli's style.

    But knowing my bad luck means that if I start pulling now, the next character is going to be Yaoyao or something.
    So far I haven't gotten any 5* really early, the only one I've gotten early was 2nd Ganyu at ~60 or something.
    All my other 5* units AND weapons were during soft pity.

    Sadly that trick is weak tho. Anemo losses aggro so fast.

    I did it today in this team with 2 stars (since i cant clear last one with 3 anyway).

    Group 1 Klee (bombs knockback), Diluc (bird pushback), Sucrose (to stack mobs) and Diona (for shield)
    Group 2 Jean (IMPORTANT!!!!! -- she picks the mage at start of it so it delays the summon of the mobs that nuke pillar), Noelle (for shield), Ganyu (to nuke adds fast) and Xiangling (for reactions)

    But floor 12 --- fuck that.

    I am close to soft pity for 50/50 chance on hu-tao. If i dont get her --- its saving time for Ayaka and ignore all banners.

    It keeps aggro for around 15 seconds, from my experience, which is way enough to kill those mobs or taunt again.

    Yeh, but problem is that if you get hit by a pyro archer -- reaction and instant interupt (unless you have a shield)

    At the very least getting hit by pyro archers means cleansing the electro debuff.

    Well, I could go all the way to the 100% but then I'd have nothing left.

    I'm sitting here, thinking about ordering the Klee coffee mug and her sports jacket (both feature the bomb, not Klee herself - I-I'm not a weeb, or anything) and ask myself. "What if they release that claymore chibi-character that was datamined a few months ago".

    If I had to skip one of these characters just because I was going all in on Hu Tao, I'd be really sad.
    At the same time, Hu Tao looks like a fun character too.

    I can't win this without swiping my credit card, I'm sure of it.
    But the shop prices are insulting.

    Idk, I feel like my Ganyu is faceroll compared to my Diluc. They both have pretty similar quality artifacts, but cocogoat just casually drops ~35k shots every 2 seconds or whatever, versus Diluc who can only get like 20k melts with E against the same enemy, and that's obviously only when his E is not on cd.

    Ganyu is good, Ganyu is strong - I could do everything she does with Diluc just as easily though.
    That's fair, and I still use Diluc more than cocogoat because I like Diluc better. About the only time I use Ganyu is for bosses Diluc can't do (pyro flower). However, if the game ever gives us hard content that isn't element specific, I'd have a hard time ignoring Ganyu's potential.

    It's also worth mentioning that Hu Tao, once actual Co-op content is out, is garbage for that kind of content and characters like Noelle/Jean, are super strong since they can both heal and do damage.
    That's fair, but the best coop content we've had to-date IMO was the Mona stuff (at least as far as actually getting to use characters and show off your strength). Buff cryo flower is the only other time I can think of.

    Haven't actually seen it mentioned anywhere, and I would have missed it myself if I wasn't specifically looking forward to this event but all ley lines have a double reward thing going on atm. If you ever intend on doing anymore ley lines at all in your Genshin Impact career, you'll do your 3 a day for this great deal.
