With Abyss reset soon I went through it yesterday and was trying something new.
I basically went through all of it with this setup:


I've been casually working on my Fischl/Beidou/Xingqiu/Sucrose team for a while now and wanted to know how far I could get this time.
Last time they had an easy time with floor 9 but started struggling at floor 10. This time they brought me all the way up to 12-2 with a total of 33 stars, but couldn't handle 12-3.
There's neither a proper healer nor a proper shielder on that team, so once they don't output enough damage to just curbstomp things, it gets rough. (Xingqiu thankfully alleviates some of it, but not enough). Still not finished with that team, so there's room for improvement, the biggest being getting C6 Fischl.
Some other observations: The ice cube was rough as well, enemies with only short windows of vulnerability aren't that great with this team. The small vishaps are annoying as hell.
I'm happy though that I can now run Abyss without Diluc. Get benched :evilblob:
...Hopefully it will still work after reset 🤞
hypercarry team is absolutely broken for abyss, can't believe how braindead that team is. I've done one side in like 40 seconds with the 1st team you have.
Tho Idefinitely prefer nuking one side with eula and 2nd with ganyu but to think there's such an easy f2p option makes me really happy.

It's a lot of fun, tons of numbers everywhere, lol. I should probably invest in Sucrose after I'm done leveling Beidou's artifacts. She's the worst geared character in this team by far despite technically being the on-field DPS :whistle:
I wonder how well that team works with Raiden instead of Fischl. I feel like C6 Fischl might have still the edge due to the A4 passive that is doing a lot of work here, but below C6 I'm leaining towards Raiden. We'll have to see :evilblob:

Tried the new abyss today. Was initially annoyed that they now also put the pyro cube into floor 11 (first half has the cryo cube, second on pyro) but it wasn't an issue.
The new floor 12 though. Utter garbage.
I've literally only tried the first half of 12-1 and am already considering just not bothering. The amount of HP the mobs have is just bullshit. I can probably do it, but man. Fun it is not.

I cleared the last abyss but I didn't get all the stars. I'm guessing I probably shouldn't even bother with this new floor 12 then eh? lol

I'm slowly going through handguard hell to max my Ayaka. It's soul crushing trying to get all those gold handguards.

For the record: I've never cleared Abyss with full stars. My best for the last floor 12 was 6 stars I think.
I'll probably try again next weekend before it resets, by that time my Fischl/Beidou/Xingqiu/Sucrose team should be stronger. Though I think not having C6 Fischl really holds me back here and I might still have to do it with Diluc/Bennett/Xingqui/? (last spot is usually Zhongli but I feel like I want him on the 2nd side against Maguu Kenki with my Ganyu team.... I need a second Zhongli :/ )

I quit doing abyss (even back when I was playing basically daily) since it was the least fun part of Genshin for me. I just don't enjoy playing characters that aren't in my main party.

Thank you, I'll see what I can do :)
FWIW, I've also been grinding that cube, and also for leveling Jean, so I'd be happy to help you out if I'm online.

Thank you! :) Although could it be you aren't on the EU servers? It says UID doesn't exist :/

Seems like it, here it is from in-game [Hidden content].

Also I'm playing now for probably the next hour or so if you want help with the cube ;)
Okay got you now! :D And thanks for the offer although I noticed Co-op Mode is locked for me at the moment until I continue some quests 🙈

I've never really done Spiral Abyss. Mostly cuz I was slower with levelling and such and I never really bothered. But I might do it more often now that I've got a squad up to max ascension.
