You can buy a battlepass at AR 20.



You also get a free BP.

Nothing world shattering in the payed version as far as I can see.

dang, i just did a reroll and pulled:

barbara, Diluc, Noelle, Fischl, Xiangling

guess im set! no venti but i imagine i wont have that kinda luck again.

Rerolling from that would be a real . You will probably get enough free currency from the ones they are giving out, and from just playing and doing stuff to make a few pulls on the Venti banner.

It's mostly just a shitload of character/weapon xp and money. You get your choice of one so-so 4 star weapon at bp30 which seems real stingy, and also about $25 worth of gacha if you do the whole thing. I bought it because i'm gonna be playing a lot of this game this month anyway + I want to save up gacha for when they add Klee, but it doesn't seem like a particularly good deal

cats can have little a sunglasses, as a treat

Had some rewards cash floating around so I spent it on some pulls. Managed to snag Venti

Right now my strategy is to drop Oz with Fischl and then swap to Barbara and spam water attacks. It chews through most enemies I've encountered so far.

There is something just deeply disturbing about this game. It's clearly built with mobile interfaces and capabilities in mind (and missing some really critical, by my standard, basic PC QOL features) but it's single player and appears competitive as a "you've played the great game and want more of the same but don't want to replay the great one" type of game. However it's so clearly in the style of a multiplayer free-to-play game that it's deeply disturbing to play as a single player game, both from fear that this will become more normal and from annoyance at having to pay for core game features in a gatcha system.

he uses jdownloader but someone else links to XDM in one of the top comments. download and install it, take the url from the main post and copy it into XDM and it'll download at your max speed.

go to settings/network settings and set segments per download to 32, then just hit the + in lower left, add the link, away it goes. once done move it into the genshin impact folder and you're good.

I'm AR13 and just started Prologue Act 2 quest lol

I've got almost the whole map unlocked except the story gated northwest area. Running past enemies that are level 30+ was pretty fun. I think as soon as I unlock ascension I'll have enough books to boost my four mains to their next max level with no issue.

i used this guide for ar 7 rerolls and it seemed fine

I had started by myself but used this to get to AR7 and got all my rolls in. Got Fischl, Razor, and Barbara. No Venti but these appear to be Good Rolls? I'm just going to stick with it since I don't particularly feel like doing the re-roll game before actually playing the game.

Now if they could add controller support on iOS I could see myself sink some time into this.

You got Fischl, who synergises amazingly with multiple characters, and Barbara who, while free when you hit 20, is an awesome healer who gets better with constellation upgrades (dupes). You could have a much worse roll!

I want to argue that this isn't a 'mobile' game, since you don't need an android emulator to play it on PC and its on ps4. But I'm not gonna die on this hill.

My rolls have been absolute dog poo poo with multiple dupes of Noelle, Xianling and Barbara (who are all guaranteed/available for free from events atm), but I haven't felt underpowered or gimped at all.

The rates might be garbage but so far it seems like rare characters are not super important. Most other games' gacha systems are attached to gameplay that is some flavor of turn based JRPG, where everything is just an elaborate game of Risk where you need the higher numbers from your SSR waifus in order to beat things. So far at least in Genshin, because it's an actual action game it feels like you have much more room to just play smart and be successful.

Most people say Amber is at the bottom of poo poo-tier for example, but I have used her a ton and she's been great. Being a bow is inherently useful for puzzles and nailing bosses in weakspots while kiting, and she is excellent at opening up fights by throwing out the taunt-bomb and doing a charge attack or hitting an explosive barrel to get pyro going, before switching to someone else who can start causing pyro reactions. In any more traditional gacha game she'd be a three star garbage character that gets immediately benched because her stats would be deliberately made awful and that would be all that mattered.

I would take most of the Tier lists right now with a grain of salt really. Yeah the 5* heroes are going to be good, but your gear is going to be more important. A 5* in lovely gear is going to play crappy regardless. But a 4* in good gear is going to perform just as well as that 5*.

What's important about Diluc's Phoenix is aiming it so you maximise hits, because each hit will give you energy to do it again! When you get to really big mobs, you can just chain over and over, with only the cooldown limiting you.

Tabletops posted:

I got ultra lucky and got my Diluc from my second Newbie banner, and I've seen someone get him from mass pulls on the Venti Banner. The Jean/Diluc/Gear banner, obviously, has the "best" chance of getting him, though.

Yeah the elemental combos become way more important as you progress. You get a world rank up at AR20 which makes all the mobs slighter higher level and harder, and this goes up several more times as you get further AR. Getting used to the combos and finding the ones you like is arguably more important than the actual characters.

Doing what you are doing now really. Doing whatever quests you can find, run around opening chests, getting waypoints, finding the little floaty things you feed to the statues, run things that burn some of your resin(energy).

Im at AR 20 and finished the quests involving Venti and Stormbringer.

Its kinda impressive how decent the story has been. Im annoyed with little quirks and bugs on Ps4. Co-op is a mess, I just want to matchmake and be thrown into a dungeon. Spawning in the open world complicates everything way too much.
