Thread: Genshin Impact

    as a f2p player the material and resin problem is mostly at the start from the initial surge of all characters/weapons, after you spend your initial chunk of primogems from quests, levels chests etc you will probably get something like 20? pulls per month, meaning you will be get like 1 new character a month probably if you are completely f2p, and then the resin resources wont be a problem once you have levled up most of your other characters

    No you don't need those mats, but it will save you quite a lot of time and $10 is really not much, hell even the more expensive one isn't expensive.
    Yeah, it is. For me it's literally perfect as i can keep up with Genshin and play other games in my limited free time. I don't get why it's absolutely needed for many people (not targeting you now) to do everything in the shortest time possible and crunch every game to jump on the new one. If you think players are wrong to enjoy then"crappy story", then you're just taking the wrong approach.

    It's not a sprint, it's a marathon. You just want to "get it all done and move on" imho. Which is what the game is exactly to oppose to and make you spend money on

    EDIT: probably gonna cave in and get the 10$ pass. In the end, i'm just BP30 but i basically never did the 150 daily resin mission and a lot of the weeklies, so i think that with just a little more focus on it (and the 1.1 changes) getting BP50 will be cakewalk.

    You tried, and you failed. What have you learned? That's better not to try at all.

    So new reputation system has some limits:


    You can only do a weekly for one zone at time.

    Also some people did the math and they said its better to do single pulls after 75 roll as you have 54.68% chance to get 5 star on rolls from 76-80.

    Will check the video later. As for the math, it makes sense. Doing 10-pulls is fine at the beginning, but if you're nearing the pity roll, you don't want to "waste" gems for a guaranteed roll you're very likely to get anyway.

    The thing is. If you do a 10x roll you can scruv yourself over a lot. (after 75)
    If you get pass the 81 with this, your chances go down.

    You don't waste pulls though. Unless you don't want another 4* / 5* from that banner.
    So I honestly don't see the point, but I guess it doesn't matter much either way.
    And the chance of getting a 5* (that you want) and a Banner 4*(that you don't want) is pretty low from just 10 pulls.

    The pulls carry over. What does it matter if you got the 5* on the first pull and then 9 3*.
    The next time you pull on that banner-type. you start at 9/180

    Zhongli does not have a banner on the road map yet. The next banner isn't supposed to be Childe, either.

    Edit: It appears the site I was using for info had updated their road map and now shows it's a Childe/Xhongli banner!

    Klee, Xingqiu, Noelle, Xiangling - October 18th - November 7th
    Xiao, Xingqui - November 7th - 27th
    Zhongli, Childe - November 11th
    QiQi - November 27th - December 17th
    Keqing, Mona, QiQi (Acquainted Fates) - December 17th - January 16th
    Mona - January 16th - February 5th

    They were both announced at the same time with no indication as to which was first until Tuesday.

    Ooh, Qiqi on November 27th..
    Guess I'm saving my rolls for that.

    Or maybe I'll roll on the Xiao one, but I really don't want Xingqui.

    I dont think those news are right. The banner will come out to soon before even klee ones expires. (araund 9.11.2020)

    Well, it would be hard to get duplicates of 4* weapons to begin with so I don't think it really matters.

    It's not that i feel the need to get everything done asap because I just want things handed to me immediately (like some people here think that's what it is). It's because the daily stuff is not fun so if I can skip it or shorten it, I will. There's a lot of people who just login, do dailies, and then log out. How is that fun?

    You shouldn't worry about refinements imo. That's just too much.

    They might not be news, but it's the first time I've seen the schedule.
    I want me that Qiqi though.

    If I can get her and the 2 data mined lolis, then I'll have a full loli set. Screw the meta, stack lolis

    That banner with that has Qiqi on it is only for the permanent banner, so it'd replace the one that has Jean and Diluc. There supposedly aren't any actual changes to that banner as it doesn't include rate ups and has everything in it.

    But wouldn't that be the Keqing/Mona/Qiqi one? That's the one marked with acquainted fate.

    As a F2P player how important are Constellations in building an effective team? It seems like a lot of the potential for making a character good is from Constellations. But in order to get them (and max them out) you have to have the luck of the gods. Especially for some of the rare ones.

    Are there any characters where the Constellations aren't a factor?

    Traveler you get max constellations as you play the game

    But really, just play whatever you want. All characters are reasonably competent even at 0 constellation. Unless you're struggling at Abyss 10+, you don't need to worry about that

    Oh, you be right. We'll have to wait and see. Qiqi is awesome.

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Constellations just make weaker characters a bit more viable, and already good characters even greater. I wouldn't worry too much about it. With how RNG tends to go, you're more likely to get duplicates for the characters you aren't currently using, or don't want to use, anyway.
