I think they last for 12 hours or something now...
True. I think the only time the new 4 star wasn't on the new character banner but on the rerun instead was Yanfei on Zhongli's banner. In recent times they do indeed seem to always pair new characters together. Yay.Layla looks really cool, and I'm pretty sure they'll be on the same banner... usually that how it works now, with the reruns on the side (I wouldn't be on who that will be in 3.2 though).
It's weird how for the first time I will have a guarantee on Nahida day one.
If I don't go for Cyno and Nilou... but I think those can wait a long time.
And I was thinking while doing dailies, that I'd really like a way to be more specific with what we get. I am still trying to finish Mondstadt achievements and that one bugged one in Li Yue...
Yeah. her trial is pretty meh.Tried Nilou, eh, not sure I like playing as her. She feels weirdly slow for a sword character since she's made for 3 hits combos.
I totally forgot to even try Cyno, that's saying how much I cared about him
The weinslefest was pretty nice, I liked the interactions and the story. The shop minigame was a strange choice, but I don't dislike those Yakuza-like minigames if they don't last too long. It could easily become a tedious one if it comes back...
Now to explore the desert while waiting for Nahida...
But she looks like: "What if Hatsune Miku isekai'ed into Genshin?" and having more Miku is never badCurious about their kits in action, Scara sounds fun.
Faruzan... she's maybe the most boring design of the entire cast... and so at odds with her role. Honestly she's probably the most "gacha" 4* yet, as in, clearly forgettable and underdesigned char that you don't use... maybe she will look better in game?
I'd take a Miku collab. But I think she'd look a bit more interesting, which would be even worse for Faruzan by comparison... she's has strong generic blue haired anime loli energy, I dunno...But she looks like: "What if Hatsune Miku isekai'ed into Genshin?" and having more Miku is never bad
Well objectively I think you're right, she really does look like: "We need some kind of character who has a stoic arura about her" and she really fits that stereotype but yeah an actual Miku collab would be awesome!I'd take a Miku collab.

The critical path is actually fairly short, only the Chasm is required to start the Sumeru story after Inazuma. Tsurumi Island and Enkanomiya are completely optional and Sumeru exploration is also optional to the main story there.I started playing Genshin again 2 weeks ago, primarily because I remembered that Sumeru is out and I wanted to play that. The last time I played was ~ when Kokomi was released, and a few weeks after that (I guess; I have her at 90 and her relevant talents pretty high).
Anyway, I then immediately remembered why I hate service games: there were 2 time-limited events going on that I felt compelled to complete. That and the dailies ate up a few days. The events were actually pretty fun, but they would be a lot more fun if they weren't FOMO-bait and I could play them at my leisure.
After that, I though "hey, let's finish up the local (Inazuma) quests first". I did not realize that they had patched in an entire new island with a really long quest line, and a massive area under another island. And the continuation of some other world quests. None of that is actually bad content in my opinion, there's just so much of it.
I convinced myself that I should move on and come back to those questlines later (at least they aren't FOMO), so on to Sumeru! Except not, since apparently they released another Dragonspine-like mid-area at some point? So now I'm in the Chasm. Which, again, isn't bad at all, but there's so much stuff here.
Congrats!I lost the 50/50 after 70 pulls and got C1 Keqing. Now most people would probably hate this, but I've always been a Kequing fan so having her as my first 5 star C1 isn't so bad. I was still a bit disappointed since the pulls on this banner seem very "wasted" since I already have max constellations on the 4*s I actually use from it.
However, I then got Nahida after 20 (!!) pulls. I don't think I ever got a 5* at less than 50-60 pulls before, so that's great. I was actually skip-clicking through it and only saw her in the summary screen.
Yes, one patch closer to Dehya! After seeing video of Al Haitham I'm pretty much all the way out, I'll try for the new four star just to keep the collection complete though (at zero pity right now).Definitely looking forward to next patch though, I'm very ready for a new area.
(And it means we'll be one patch closer to Dehya)
I wish I had done this (checked the preview) before pulling for Wanderer. I got suckered in by the fancy flying stuff, but he's quite difficult to fit into any of my standard teams, AND he needs a shielder to babysit his key weakness of... getting swatted like a fly by any enemy with a rapid shot.Playing the trial, yeah, Wanderer is pretty clunky. Looks great in combat though, but he feels pretty sluggish and playing without a shielder is just not realistic.
I don't dislike his style, but I don't really want him now.
No need, since Yaoyao is a Liyue char and next patch should have Lantern Rite with the annual "get any Liyue 4 star for free" again you can just pick her up from there. At least that's what I'm planning to do.Yes, one patch closer to Dehya!

Ah yes, I totally forgot about Lantern Rite! I remember last year I got Yunjin from LR, hopefully they dont change their plans for this year. We'll find out soon enough, as the Genshin show was called for Friday!No need, since Yaoyao is a Liyue char and next patch should have Lantern Rite with the annual "get any Liyue 4 star for free" again you can just pick her up from there.

(They really should to this for other regions 4 stars as well... Or just general "pick anyone"....)
If you dont have Yelan, then its a no-brainer! The only thing better than Xingqiu is two Xingqius, and I personally prefer using her. We have a similar amount of wishes saved up (converted from primos), so you should have enough to get both Yelan and Dehya as long as your luck isn't abysmal.Having a free pick of a 4* would make a lot of sense for the anniversary and such big milestones. Doesn't cost Hoyoverse any primogem money, makes everyone happy, especially the brand new players.
And I'm not sure how it will end up once Yelan comes back, and then Dehya.
I'm a bit worried about Dehya, depending on how she plays. Alhaitham is coming next, but if he is dendro Keqing... I don't really have a place for him anywhere, I already use aggravate Keqing (and she's my strongest char by far), so what would I even do with him? A burgeon team? With no info on Dehya, how will that work (I know of the Thoma one, but I really don't like it), will we have enough support for two dendro teams?
