    Or we could end up with Albedo with the new character. The new bow will still sell as they are probaly count on stupid people to give this bow to a free 3 star character. (Aloy cough cough)
    Don't sweat the details!!!

    I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic here, but Albedo has even less chance to get a rerun any time soon than Childe. The guy is completely invalidated by Zhongli and there's noone who would unironically roll for him.

    I hope for albedo before hu tao or Ganyu so I can save up tons of primos

    It's kind of a brainer...
    As much as I like her, c2 feels unnecessary over c1, and I'd rather save those 80/160 wishes.
    C1 was a massive quality of life increase and decent damage upgrade, and I feel like c4 would be a similar spike, but the 2 between are not good enough value for the price.
    Of course it's an okay damage upgrade if you're looking for a safe place to invest your primogems, can't really argue that.
    Unless her banner will feature some 4star I really want to finish (Rosaria, Sayu), I really don't see myself investing in HT constellations, she's already too good at c1.

    Also, 9/10/10 is a pretty weird choice, her normal attack is the best investment for her damage (unless you didn't mean that in order, in that case, nevermind)

    Yeah, that would be nice, but that's also why it's not gonna happen.

    Personally, I still have nearly 10k. Think I had around 14k for Baal. I've been very picky one what I roll on and a ganyu or hu tao would be an easy pass since I have both already.

    I would unironically roll for him, actually want to try him with my Razor and Zhongli for geo resonance / maybe bolide set.

    What's wrong with Albedo? He does a crap ton of damage for a guy you barely have to swap at all. He pretty much pairs amazingly with any comp that uses frequent auto attacks.

    Compared to Albedo, Zhongli seems to have given up some offensive power in exchange for more defensive.

    I don't believe she'll be dual element at all. But she doesn't need to be dual element or OP, her waifu value is through the roof and people will roll a truckload on her regardless of her performance.

    He doesn't really do "a crap ton of damage". His damage is not terrible, but that's the only thing going for him, and even that is conditional, since his flower dies whenever a mob looks in its general direction AND it doesn't hit shields. And then if you stack DEF for his E, then he may as well not have ult at all. Sure, he may do a bit more damage than Zhongli, but support's damage is pretty much irrelevant, since your main DPS does 90% of it anyway, and then Zhongli's shields are 100x stronger with none of Albedo's problems, AND you get def shred and CC from ult if you need it.

    Albedo would be a decent character if Zhongli didn't exist, but he does and that was my point.

    Ah ok, that's really cool. I'm still leveling her so i haven't really played her yet. I just noticed that in the descriptions and nametags it only says "Raiden Shogun" and never Ei but having her "switch" is a great idea.

    The sad thing is, people are actually going to fall for it.

    I have a feeling she will be the actual OP character in terms of damage. No particular reason, just feeling I guess.

    His damage is definitely not something to laugh at in terms of actual output. The issue is, like you mentioned, his flower dies when a mob even just looks at it.

    I will admit that I'm not all the up on the meta, but since when is Albedo meant to share the same slot as Zhongli on a team? Don't they both do completely different things? If anything, any of the meta teams I have seen tend to have Albedo and Zhongli together on a team, since there isn't very many Geo characters that can work well with Zhongli while still activating the Geo resonance.

    It's an element thing.

    2 Geo is only really good if your main DPS is geo, but I wouldn't say Albedo has main DPS potential and as a subdps/support, Zhongli is better due to res%shred

    Albedo is more like the DPS version of Zhongli when you think you have too much eHP and want more damage instead of more shield HP in my opinion.
    20% shred from Zhongli is pretty strong and as I've said already a few times in this thread, he shouldnt be able to do that because, as you can see in this case, he is almost a must-include in every comp. Especially since it shreds Anemo/Geo Res% as well and there are basically no other methods to do that, other than C2(?) Jean and stuff like that.

    But Albedo buffs EM and has decent DPS himself.
    His Q always hits hard, even if you build him full DEF%. Since most of his damage comes from crit/critdmg/geo% dmg.
    Bennett is always there to buff the ATK to a high level.

    I'm not sure there is such a thing as "meta Geo team" right now, but I don't really care about meta. C6 Noelle is fun, but her DPS isn't THAT great and you need a lot of copium to call her a real main DPS. I don't know what other character you'd want to pair Albedo + Zhongli with. Itto may make mono Geo (or 3 Geo + a filler) a viable comp, which is where Albedo would fit, but for now there is no place for him. The only reason you'd put a Geo character in most teams that have a filler spot are shields, so...

    Classic MMO-champion attempting to turn this F2P exploration heavy game into another competitive grindfest and making the game lesser for it. Really hope Mihoyo never caters to this player base the way Blizzard did with WoW.

    It's a gacha game and they literally sell power. They've already released 3 obvious power creep characters and buffed another because people complained so much.

    Every video game with combat is always going to have a focus on optimization because people like to feel powerful. Also it takes like 2 seconds to explore and there's no fucking reason to actually do that. The puzzles are boring and simple. The chests are lackluster and just clutter inventory. Running is slow as fuck in this game. Enemy density is nearly non-existent. "Exploration" feels like a semi-afk activity like no mans sky and that game can get bent.

    So... yeah... the game's real fun comes from 1) optimizing your character, 2) events and getting high scores, 3) waifu collecting.

    On top of also being completely wrong about everything they are saying making them look like prime buffoons. Like the guy who stated Albedo gets outclassed by zhongli when they both do completely different things and the geo resonance is so fucking strong after the buff that its usually good to include both of them in a team. Legit the 2 meta teams for 9 staring floor 12 in the current abyss are "Childe, xiangling, kazuha, bennet" and "Hutao, XQ. Zhongli, Albedo".
    That being said, caring about the meta in this game is kinda omegalul worthy but at the same time making asinine statements that Albedo is outclassed by zhongli is kinda cringe for people that have been playing this game daily for 1 year.
    If it was for them, we d still have the 3 star version of zhongli in the game.
