They're planning for smaller events and QoL fixes on top of the big updates, but no mention of resin rates that people have been complaining about.

Can anyone tell me if I'm missing any free pulls?

I see people mention that you can get like 30-40 pulls. Do people usually include Primogem purchases or am I missing something?

I've only gotten 20. Two mails containing 10 fates.

Pretty sure that also includes the Primogems that you get via mail - there's one with 1600 and then 160 a day.
And then you get ones by doing the story, side quests, achievements, ranking up, dailies, chests,....

Edit: you get 20 Acquaint fates per mail (use them on the beginner banner), 10 Intertwined fates per mail (for use on the rate up banner, which is Venti right now) and 1600 primogems per mail, which is another 10 pulls. So that's 40 from just the initial mail stuff - though you have to reach Adventure Rank 10 to get all of that.

I wouldn't expect them to raise rates at all as long as the game does well, FGO has terrible rates too (which they slightly "improved" in JP a year ago) and is a juggernaut that has lasted for over 5 years and now has turned the franchise into a billion dollar behemot.
Gacha don't raise rates unless they're failing and revenue/player retention is dropping.

Terrific! I'm happy that they're doing so well. Hopefully they treat themselves a bit then stay a little conservative with the rest of their success. If they stick to their plans and avoid changing the scope then we'll probably have a fun developing rpg for months/years to come.

I just reached AR33 and one thing is pissing me off, Theres no way without spending a lot of money to level up more than a few characters, I have all my main 4(Traveller, Amber, Razor and Kaeya) at level 60, with all their weapons at level 60 also, and some of their artifacts level'd up as well, and most of their talents.

But I wish I could farm for exp books, but the resin gate is fucking brutal, I have Venti, Fischl, Barbara, Noelle and Xiangling I would like to play as well, but theres not enough resources to level then up.

Yeah, I'm starting to reach that point as well.
Just gotten to AR 30 and unlocked Ascension 3 and things are getting brutal in terms of getting everyone powered up, let alone a second team.
The gacha is basically all about getting cool characters you like, but at this rate it's going to take ages to even get a new character usable with how costly everything is getting (and that's probably only going to get worse....)

Has certainly dampened my excitement a bit. I get that this is basically their way of forcing players from getting too powerful too fast, but it's ehhh.

All the power comes from Weapons, Artifacts, Talents and Constelation, if they want to put a brake on those I could understand, I would not like it, but understand, but gating leveling up characters that they can be usable is just pure evil.

So how does the wish stuff works? I see I have three currencies [ all blue circle, blue and pink circle, and star] The star currency doesn't seem to be used.

Now, the ball stuff is paid currency? I kind of want to see what happens by doing the bard one, but I only have 10 of the pink and blue circle - will I get that character?

In general, there's only 2 kinds of currency for pulling the banners, the normal banners and the special, time-sensitive banner. In this case, we have the Venti banner which is the special one. Here's an infographics on currencies. It's quite straightforward, actually.

Regarding the event, it's probably not live yet.

The primogen so far I guess hasn't been used during my time playing.

So Venti the bard is time sensitive so if I spend all 10 of my intertwined fate I get the character right?

:grimacing-face:
You have a 0.6% chance to pull a 5* character on Venti's banner per pull. So you could technically get him with those 10 pulls because luck, but it's unlikely.
There's a pity system every 80 pulls which guarantees you a 5* character.
Now, there's only a 50% chance to get Venti when you get a 5* character the first time, and only a 100% chance the second time (so worst case 160),

(Note: ingame says 90 pulls per pity but community has found this to be potentially a mistake, since most people seem to get a 5* with 80).
(Edit: it's probably still 90 and 80 is just RNG and hope :grimacing-face: )

Ha! If only that was the case.
Listen to Ascheroth and roll only if you really want to try to get Venti. Knowing that you have about a week to reach the pity timer, which is mighty unlikely if you're F2P.

However, you still have the Beginner's banner available, that one you should roll, it's less expensive and you get Noelle guaranteed on your first 10 pulls.

guess i'll keep trying to get Venti, i got so many dups for Xiangling I'm close to maxing out her constellation, I wish there were more spears for her though

The co-op event has some neat rewards that don't require resin, including some primogems and exp stuff from the alchemy book achievement, as well as a huge chunk of battle pass experience.

It's fine if you want to give it away. Just don't forget to unlink your email if you haven't done so.

The event is ok I guess? The XP books are a bit eh, but it's still better than the XP flowers; the "achievements" for doing it even without spending resin are not bad at all.
And finally a reason to play with others! Game's fun in multiplayer, if mega confusing.

I haven't been posting much recently. Half of that is due to a lack of free time due to work (and posting time at work :p), but the other half is because I'm spending a good chunk of the free time I do have playing Genshin Impact. And I still haven't explored more than half of the second area!

Just did the new event for the first time, with a party of 3 other random people. I wonder how they do the matchmaking, we had nicely matched up elements. I guess we did well? Our best time was 2:29, and all 4 attempts were under 3 minutes.

More 1.1 leaks. Some good stuff in here.

New dungeon & boss, convenient items (food shortcut & portable wind!), flying event (my jam), and some new resin storing mechanic.
Resin storing mechanic is good. While it won't solve the resin issue, it'll allow me to skip days where I don't have anything available to farm. Farming talent materials need a lot of resins.

Hell yeah, baby


Was a Razor x2, Chongyun x2 team. Which was awesome, haha.
Makes me want to build up my own Chongyun again. His E combined with Razor's burst is a Superconduct festival and just hella fun.

For now I've just ascended all of my current main team and raised max level to 60 (Fischl, Barbara, Xiangling, Razor).
Still need to work on talents, weapons and artifacts :grimacing-face:

Also I'm debating if I should just yolo pull on the Venti banner until pity (I have about 16 pulls left to reach 90 and enough primogems to reach that with tomorrow's dailies.)

I don't want Venti super much, but also wouldn't mind him, and there's good chance I could get someone else anyway (and none of the featured characters are really ones I wouldn't want at all), and I kinda just wanna join the "has a 5* club lol" :blobdrool:.

If you don't want Venti, you can save your pity to Klee banner.

And she even has story-tellers in Liyue telling tales of her badassry, which is awesome.

I wouldn't pull for Klee pity either. I'd pull for Venti or wait for Xiao. But Xiao banner is supposedly come after Klee, which means still 2+ weeks from now.

Don't know if it's true or not but I'm saving for Keqing.
Hm. If true, I might just save up for Keqing and Mona. They're the ones I want the most from the current 5* characters.
Though I'm doubtful those are true.
Since we still have a lot of characters from the Liyue story that aren't playable yet (and we know will be playable), like Zhongli, Childe, Ganju and that apothecary with the snake whose name I forgot).
Of course they could always do double banners, like one for a new charcters and simultaneously one for an existing character.

But I guess waiting for at least Xiao will make sense, we'll probably get leaks for the next ones while his is still ongoing too as well, so ¯\(ツ)/¯.

It may seem like a strange question but their other game, Honkai, played fine on touch. Basically I’m wondering if, graphics excepted, it makes sense to play that game on a desktop.

Personally I'm playing it on PC, occasionally dabbling a bit with it on my phone. But I'm finding that the combat can get a bit too much with just touch controls (and it's a bit choppy on my phone, lol).

But I would recommend just giving it a try on both. There is cross-save between PC and Mobile, so you can use your same account on both of them.
There's one little thing to keep in mind for purchases though: If you create the account on mobile, you're locked into buying stuff via Apple/Google. If you start on PC you can make purchases everywhere.

Yeah, just install on both of your systems. You can probably play on the ipad when you're not feeling like playing on your PC or when you're outside. But for harder content later in the game, it's best to play on PC whether with kb/m or controller. But for exploration and questing, playing on mobile should be fine.

I also just did a single pull on the Standard banner with the level 20 Battle Pass reward and got an Amber dupe :grimacing-face:
It was before pity, so that was nice. But I really don't like Amber's kit, so I'll probably never use her in combat, and as such it's kind of a waste. Oh well.

I actually don't think diluc is that interesting outside of the fact that he's currently the top dps. I wouldn't be surprised if the inevitable power creep makes him the first five star to be obsolete.

Of those rumoured upcoming banners I'd be most interested in Qiqi. The healer slot in my party is currently filled alternatively by either Barbara or Noelle, but I'm not 100% on either of them.

In terms of design and moveset I actually find Keqing most appealing, and she even has some exploration utility, but her element doesn't really fit in my party.

Diluc is interesting as a character, his side story is pretty good. In combat, his moves are pretty unique as you can basically set everything on fire at all times, unlike other fire characters who have big downtimes because of cooldowns and burst recharge.




It was completely harmless. It's not like she's sexualized or anything.

I hear she and Qiqi share animation and it didn't fit Qiqi personality so they removed it (I don't own Qiqi so if anyone can compare).

As to why they felt like they should share the same ones? Beats me. I think male Traveler and Venti run jump seem similar to me.

Would suck if they just reused animation for new characters especially with how much are people are rolling for these characters.
