I know that this game has better gacha mechanics than others (I wouldn't know this was my first), but it wasn't actually fun, unless you got lucky, otherwise it just felt bad.

    I think the main, and so far only problem, May be Inazuma. Unless the other areas are similar and need a boat and a special quest to get to. Up until this point, you could just wonder into any of the lands, regardless of quest status. Hopefully that'll be the case later on as well.

    Though I can understand players getting mad at rolling on a banner and getting something they can't upgrade at all. Chances are, if they are just starting out, they won't know what to do anyway. Maybe lowering the requirement of the quests is in order since I have no idea what the AR restrictions do anyway.

    What I meant to say is that I've been told this game has much fairer gacha mechanics than other games and that I shouldn't complain. I just never had a great experience or any degree of luck when it came to weapon banners.

    Even if you dont do a single quest (after co-op unlock), you can still co-op with other player and pick up materials in their world. (only world lvl is a problem).
    So its possible to obtain those materials (but very anoying).

    I have a felling they will add those materials into a store for players to purchase in packs on every re-run banner later in game.


    Also lol:
    Don't sweat the details!!!

I always just did a couple leylines to level them up combined with the zillion blue xp books I've hoarded over time. On the other hand, there's absolutely nothing you can do about the ascension gemstones. Unless you get really lucky, on average it takes 5 days.
    I don't get what you mean about being lazy. Unless you're hardcore grinding mob xp to save on books, it's the only way to get characters up, whether you get them from events/teapot/whatever or xp leylines. You're only hoarding them because you're not using them, unless you legit farmed xp leylines instead of using your stock, which means you didn't hoard, you just kept even.
    Out of curiosity, the other characters you have, what level are they?

    That's a fucking lie for sure. In addition to costing like 10x what other gachas cost to get a character, most other gachas don't have an additional banners needed to get a character's "special weapon" or constellations that necessitate character copies to upgrade (or at the very least offer alternative farmable methods). They also don't have such incredibly horrible rates on other gear acquisition of desired stats, and such low rates on activities that allow you to actually progress (read: resin activities).

    What I meant is, I've seen people just dump purple xp books to level up their new characters from 1-70 or 1-60 even. This is terrible use of your resources. Just do a couple xp leylines and level with the xp books you get from them (blue and purple). I only dumped my purples I had in my possession to lv from 70-90. Doing this for the 6 months I've played, I accumulated a mass surplus because they drop so frequently from events and whatnot. I did leylines to lv from 1-60 and then 60-70 with all the blue books I had naturally for quite a lot of my characters. I want to say I did this for all of my characters but I'm actually not sure about that. I had a ton of blue books still when I came back from the game and used up all of them to level raiden, sara, and sayu 1-60.

    That should cover your confusion about me hoarding vs doing leylines.

    I have 6 90s, 8 80s, 1 70, a bunch of 60s...and then amber / kaeya (lol). Only reason amber and kaeya isn't lv 1 is cuz I used them right when I first started the game.

    I've been playing from sept-march, then took a break, and came back in 2.1

    Dissing my man Kaeya like that smh. That's an insane stockpile ngl, but when you start leveling everyone to 80 (or even 90) they're gonna go FAST. Even worse with the mora.

    Eh, depends on the game. There's ones that are way better, that's for sure. But there's also ones that are substantially worse.

    One thing that I will say is that Honkai got (and continues to get) huge QoL improvements to the progression activity stuff over it's life span, so I'm hoping the same will happen with Genshin. Especially artifact farming, that continues to piss me off.

    They built Inazuma irl for their stream and are currently building a Paimon statue of liberty but unless the Paimon statue is solid gold I think they are just getting more stingy to prepare for building a giant IRL transforming Pyro Hypostasis.

    Funny thing, while reddit bashing on "Latern Rite" bad event too many chores with random npc ..... they fail to realize that that very same event gave us MORE primogems than any other event to date.

    The fetch quests were a fucking snoozefest tho. At least they learned from that and started adding the characters into them.

    What do moonchase charms do? Also gotta love gathering a ton of chests in this event to get like 200 primos.

    yep, i hate useless fetch quests with random npc "go there talk to X and do Y"; but what to chose :

    1) event with fetch quests and shitload of primos. (boring but with primogems)

    2) even with 150 primos reward per day.(Stingy that you can't even do 1 fc pull)

    I mean what a point in their events if they not able to combine interesting tasks with good reward, and do only one of these. Sad shit.

    I'm not going to try it out but I assume you are already way higher than AR30 when you want to visit Inazuma.

    Either way, it will just add up.
    You get ascension mats for rate-up 4*s too, regardless of inazuma or not. As an example you would get stuck with a lvl 20 beidou even past ar15, unless you went out of your way to find jade, which is not normally obtainable at that lvl.

    I mean, we get your point, the game is terrible, and the devs don’t know how to make games(unlike you, of course). Why do you even play at this point? Do you literally force yourself to play, so you can make some shitposts about the game on a daily basis?

    Yep, since we can make all dally tasks +artifact domain run under 30 minutes, so most fun out of the game i can get by watching white knights trying to defend badly maid moves on MHY part, it gives me smile.

    Do you, by any chance, mean white knighting as saying anything opposite to all the stupid shit you’ve been posting in this thread?
