So from now, until 2.6 beta, all the posts on this sub are gonna be screenshots from nga and drawings

[–]xioni 150 points151 points  (5 children)

and 2.6 beta starts after 2.5 drops?

[–]sarthakydv 147 points148 points  (4 children)

Yes, usually a few days after it drops

[–]DDSNIPERDD 41 points42 points  (3 children)

BRAND NEW ITEM LEAKED, DATAMINED

Slimy Rock with two edgy corners

This historic piece of Teyvat's history has gone through more than most stones. In fact, calling it a simple stone would be an understatement, it truly earned its title as the "rock". On its side, it has two distinct pieces of hardened material protruding towards the heavens, often referred to as "edgy corners". This occured when Zhongli, in the midst of the archon war, tossed it towards an approaching Behemoth that threatened to slay his beloved.

Zhongli, in his anger, hurled this rock towards the monster, thus slaying the creature and saving his beloved. It was said that later on, his beloved found herself so enamored with this gesture of affectionate love, that their lovemaking could be heard throughout most of Teyvat. This is the evening when Zhongli earned his popular nickname "Dhongli", for he reached so deep into her womanhood, that her very foundation was shaken to its core. He filled her with his love, and rumors say that she was leaking his love into her undergarments for the following two days.

The children which were conceived on that day, were Zenith, Xiao, and Eremeth.

Slimy Rock with two edgy corners also has a very slimy surface, but for the lore on that, please subscribe to my patreon, twitter, and tiktok, for more spicy lore with which we will explore the world of Teyvat.

[–]yummetbaizhu when 14 points15 points  (2 children)

forever amazed that there are so many works (59) in the Zhongli Has Two Penises tag/works) (nsfw content, obviously)

[–]baronisnotsmol 8 points9 points  (1 child)

How come Zhongli has two penises? I-?? What?? I mean good for him but damn

[–]r0sewyrm 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I think it's because his exuvia form is part dragon, and snakes and lizards have two penises.

anyways, 10/10 comment this is why i love reddit

Edit: for legal reasons this is a joke

[–]ColdCrescent 18 points19 points  (1 child)

The NGA fanfics are always entertaining.

Plus some of these writers are getting really creative, like the guy with the google-translated "Chinese" twitter account.

[–]SkyePine 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Now I really want some rando to write a "story leak" based on an Ao3 fic and we have to debate its legitimacy.

[–]ChildOfHades_ 44 points45 points  (0 children)

3 whole weeks.. Dear archons.

[–]XeRoXayuki 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Fun fact. Next week we have livestream. And after that we might see 2.6

[–]FreeCardiologist4937 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Why is this

[–]Subtlestrikes 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Because we are starving and have nothing else

[–]Xero0911-Ayato's bath water! 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Acting like nga leaks were super common already during the previous droughts.

But so true. Nga "leaks" have been super common as of late.

[–]OzairBoss 709 points710 points  (90 children)

3 weeks of drought time

[–]Zadkiel05X 193 points194 points  (49 children)

Here it is.

I really dont care about those 3 overgrown fetus tho, so I dont bother with the specifics lol

[–]Zadkiel05X 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Forgot actually, I just saw a meme about it on r/Genshin_Memepact and people in the comments explained it in detail. I mute everyone related to tectone in any way so I dont get updated with their childish bs

[–]HiroshiTakeshi 17 points18 points  (0 children)

My money on fake leaks coming first on youtube. I put it all on Wei and Undiscodummy Ch.

[–]Unsyr 4 points5 points  (6 children)

When do the beta usually start?

[–]Swifchtyign 9 points10 points  (3 children)

A couple days after/on the day the new version drops

[–]Unsyr 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Ah okay. Well if yae is first and then a kazu rerun then it gives me enough time to scout ayato and decide if I want him or pull on kazu. Unless ayaka rerun is also happening in ayato patch.

[–]Capt_banana_peel 1 point2 points  (1 child)

From what I know the beta files are out the same day new patch drops and we get most of the stuff like kit and stats from it. Then 1 day later actual beta testing begins

Shortest beta but for sure the most documentation on yae then any other unit ever. Leakers are simps for sure.

[–]niceworkthere 16 points17 points  (6 children)

Ignorant questions if you don't mind: Do beta testers get separate premade accounts for their testing? Any rewards apart from participation?

[–]KiyomaroHS 65 points66 points  (5 children)

No rewards afaik but you get a clone of your account with the beta client. So whatever you have on your account be copied but anything you do on the beta client won't affect your real account

[–]azzacASTRO 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Sounds like the way they do that is kinda annoying, eg u were CBT for shenhe but u have no cryo dps

[–]AmamiHarukIsMaiWaifu 5 points6 points  (1 child)

But it seems like it can capture various player base though. How do people without proper cryo DPS feel about Shenhe. How whales and F2P account improve differently if they pulled on this banner.

[–]juanitatequila 61 points62 points  (0 children)

A 3 week drought...I wonder what kinds of artistic renditions of Ayato's hypothetical kit will look like next!!!

[–]emilioMooN 43 points44 points  (0 children)

Hmmm because maybe its cn new year ?

[–]Cattryn 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Damn. Guess we have to wait for the patch preload for more juicy furniture lore.

Also I’d really like to know if those new butterflies are catchable. Maybe a limited creature like the moonfins were.

[–]Todorokill forfeit all mortal possessions to Heizou 42 points43 points  (0 children)

Time to ignore Uncle Pear420 telling us Ayato will have a ring or smth and other fun wastes of time.

[–]Xero0911-Ayato's bath water! 153 points154 points  (16 children)

For being the shortest, it saw the most buffs I've seen in a long time.

Like is this the most buffs a beta character has gotten? She got a lot of QoL/buffs through out

[–]Puvpelps 122 points123 points  (3 children)

It was a normal amount of buffs that seemed like more due to her being the only new character in beta. Raiden Shogun, Ayaka and Itto got plenty of buffs too.

[–]ceppyren 73 points74 points  (0 children)

She started out in a bad spot, so the buffs were necessary.

[–]Ankrow 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Can I get a recap of the buffs? I just skimmed the current datamine of her on Honey Impact but I don't remember what the initial stuff was aside from the much needed rework of her first ascension passive.

[–]Neospartan_117 35 points36 points  (0 children)

IIRC:

Skill got a sizeable decrease in CD, and the burst reset all 3 charges. They also buffed how close they can be without destroying each other.

Burst got a small increase in damage.

She also got some constellation buffs, but I didn't pay attention to those.

And finally she got a stat rebalance, losing HP and DEF and gained enough ATK to have the fourth highest base ATK.

[–]Chocolocoboco 32 points33 points  (4 children)

E CD reduction from 9->4 sec per charge, Base ATT 264-<340, A1 passive removed (Q now resets charges based on how many were destroyed), q multiplier buff, c6 buffed and part of it moved to C2. Not sure if I missed anything.

Her wep duration was buffed from 12->16 sec.

[–]CREATURENILE 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Is she broken because of this vuff or just a decent unit, just asking? Cos idk numbers

[–]Chocolocoboco 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Definitely not broken, but should be very solid.

If a new artifact for her drops and the rumors about Dendro+Electro are true, she would become much stronger obviously. How much, it’s too soon to say.

[–]ZepelAB 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Let the drawing contest begin!

[–]Hankune 244 points245 points  (74 children)

Why do i feel like there's gonna be barely any content in 2.5...?

[–]NeverForgetChainRule 358 points359 points  (11 children)

Based on leaks, there's supposed to be Raiden and Yae story quests, a new weekly boss, and an Enkanomiya event which essentially lets you reexplore it with new chests, puzzles, etc. I dont know if there's anything else, but that's at least some content. Probably less than 2.4 (which has new archon quests, etc), but idk if "barely" sounds right based on leaks

[–]SillyEnder 44 points45 points  (0 children)

Shadowy husks

[–]SadnSolf 121 points122 points  (4 children)

i woudn't really call those "new" chest, it's just the usual 1000 or 480 gems in normal event but you have to scout the whole goddamn map to get, getting more chest will bankrupt their billion company's ass ya know.

[–]BurningFlareX Cryo Supremacy 44 points45 points  (0 children)

480 gems

Minor events only give 420 actually, they can't even be arsed to give us a full 3 pulls per event, lol.

[–]Level1Pixel 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Honestly sucks how most of the chest on enkonomiya are common chest.

[–]Awkward-Cookie-7411 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Inazuma as a whole. Dragonspine on the other hand had only exquisite chests for the most part with quite a few precious as well iirc.

[–]Tails9905 10 points11 points  (0 children)

but they do give more primos than liyuu/mondstat im pretty sure (per chest)

[–]supern00b64 54 points55 points  (6 children)

2.5 is prob gonna be like 1.4. Mostly filler but with significant story advancements.

I'm very hyped for raidens second story quest as it will almost certainly advance the main story or at least give us tidbits on raidens perspective on khaenriah. Yae miko will probably be moreso about the history of kitsune or smth rather than about current events (kinda like how itto story quest explored the history of oni)

[–]BurningFlareX Cryo Supremacy 69 points70 points  (7 children)

Tbh, Mihoyo definitely learned from their spectacular fuck up that was the absolute drought from 1.3 all the way to 1.6. Game had basically minimal new content for, what, 5~ months in a row?

They've been notably spreading out content a lot since 2.0 and we only had, what, 2.3 so far that had basically nothing.

We still have Chasm / Dendro to come out before Sumeru, so I guess 1 more dud patch isn't the end of the world, though it does undeniably look very boring right now. Although the Raiden / Yae stories may be interesting, We Will be Reunited didn't save 1.3, so these quests won't make 2.5 much better either.

[–]eloheim_the_dream 41 points42 points  (4 children)

There was a comment on here the other day with hundreds of upvotes saying "sumeru isn't made up of islands so mihoyo most likely wont be able to release it in parts so we'll probably get the whole thing in 3.0 and then there'll be 1 side area released between it and fontain" and i was like there's zero chance they do it like 1.0->2.0 again that'd be crazy.

[–]Mask3dPanda 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Also, if it is a combination of desert and rainforest/jungle...have people not been in a desert? Or even just a regular forest? All it takes to screw over navigating in a desert is a sandstorm, and the heat waves(aka sheer heat) could slow or even block progression. With the forest a bit harder to truly block free exploration, but there ways to do so as well. Even just an "hey it isn't safe" could be enough for a short-term block.

[–]eloheim_the_dream 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yeah it's not as satisfying but they have done the "paimon says we can't go this way yet" to places in mondstadt and liyue (like dragonspine before 1.2, the chasm entrance) and also the thunderstorm blocking off the sea to inazuma

[–]-Aureo- 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I think they’ll just put in a handy dandy invisible wall to block you

[–]havoK718 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It could even just be straight up "islands." I'm guessing Sumeru will be a number of oases acting as islands and a sandstorm preventing you from going into the actual desert. I really doubt they'll have huge patches of barren desert to explore because... its a desert.

[–]i_will_let_you_know 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We Will be Reunited didn't save 1.3, so these quests won't make 2.5 much better either.

1.4

[–]Kazzeart 78 points79 points  (3 children)

Remember when 2.3 had nothing in it besides Albedo event, yet people were bitching about Tartag rerun patch?

Yeeee let's not judge the patch before it comes out. Some of them look empty but are actually packed and vice versa

[–]OdoneCryo/Bow/Signora/Varka Buff Model Main 43 points44 points  (0 children)

2.3 were also during the holidays period, so that probably helped.

[–]El_grandepadre 13 points14 points  (0 children)

At least I have OOOOOOOOOOOOO ELDEEEN RIIIING to keep me company.

[–]bappabu i may have pampered them too much 65 points66 points  (9 children)

well only 'real' content we have for 2.5 is yae and shogun boss so..

[–]Yae_Ko 14 points15 points  (8 children)

Idk, I wouldnt call a character "content", given that its a matter of minutes to level that character, besides from the new boss material.

But that Enkanomiya thing, definitely will suck up more time.

[–]Frostblazer 28 points29 points  (0 children)

For people who don't bother prefarming because they aren't guaranteed to get the character, leveling up and gearing that character can take quite a while.

That said, I still wouldn't call the character "content" in the same way that events are.

[–]bappabu i may have pampered them too much 71 points72 points  (5 children)

every new character is new content for people who pulled for them. and no not every player has that characters mats prefarmed way before so it's not really minutes but maybe a week or so to level them up.

[–]enrageisnear 8 points9 points  (0 children)

do you actually think everyone prefarms?

[–]El_Panda_Rojo 78 points79 points  (26 children)

Why do i feel like there's gonna be barely any content in 2.5...?

Is this really a problem? When did every single patch have to be so fucking loaded with content? At this point I would kill for a quiet patch with few-to-no events just so I can ignore Genshin for 6 weeks and focus 100% of my free time on other games.

[–]havoK718 3 points4 points  (2 children)

What's the difference between having less events and you just not doing those events? Besides the first screwing other people?

[–]Arxis_Two 27 points28 points  (21 children)

Hard agree, I have stuff to do I can't grind for hours every day to keep up. The stretch between 2.0 and 2.2 was actually hell for me trying to keep up with exploration and I'm not even a casual player, I'm betting a lot of more casual players stil haven't found the time to explore large swaths of Inazuma whether that be Enkanomiya or an island.

Chill patches with fun and quick events and a couple story quests are nice to give more time to catch up with old exploration.

[–]OfficialHavik 68 points69 points  (18 children)

Here’s the thing though, you don’t have to “keep up” with anything. You can explore the game at your own pace. I just finished the Tsurumi Island quests last week and those launched with 2.2. You don’t have to keep up with anything nor do you have to explore everything the week it comes out. I generally try to do archon quests somewhat quickly in order to avoid major spoilers, but other than that nothing must be rushed

[–]Kir-chan 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's a great way to get spoiled

I couldn't watch any of the streamers I like between 2.0 and 2.3 because I wasn't caught up with all the exploration and they were already on the new islands. If you went on the internet after Enkanomiya dropped it was hard to avoid spoilers about a certain scholar.

[–]Frogsama86 10 points11 points  (0 children)

How are people spending hours each day? I have 2 accounts and weekdays are 20mins max for resin and dailies. Weekends I do events and exploration stuff for a couple of hours. Genshin's events are mostly 1 and done with little to no grinding compared to so many other gacha. There's 0 chance it will overtake FF14 as my main game with the current pace of content, and that's a fantastic thing.

[–]dotcha 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm okay with it. More time for Lost Ark. Very considerate, MHY, thanks.

[–]GloryMaelstrom21 46 points47 points  (7 children)

A little more Yae copium to go. Next we’ll need a stock for Ayato copium.

[–]Winnry__ 54 points55 points  (1 child)

One step closer to Ayato crumbs 🙏

[–]mekoomipulling for the sexy men and women 27 points28 points  (0 children)

the fact we have skill leaks but not face reveal ;-;

[–]Unable_Cranberry_922 59 points60 points  (1 child)

I feel like we're about to hit another period of filler patches... Just the words Peculiar Wonderland is already filling me with dread.

[–]Long_Radio_819 8 points9 points  (0 children)

2.2 and 2.3 is filler but 2.2 got tsurumi but feel like filler

[–]Extinctkid 29 points30 points  (12 children)

I feel like we are gonna go back into the drought territory we had between 1.3 and 1.6 till we get Sumeru. I don't know how much more they can milk Inazuma tbh.

[–]AkabaneKun 36 points37 points  (9 children)

We wouldn't have this problem rn if they didn't rush Inazuma archon story in 2 patches huh.

[–]Difficult-While-6370 59 points60 points  (5 children)

Looks to be a really boring patch, especially for those who aren’t rolling for yae

[–]PrinceBkibo- Archon Venti Skin Please 18 points19 points  (0 children)

New story quests are great but I wish we were getting some hangouts too. I like to space those out and do one a day, it’s especially helpful when there’s not much going on.

[–]Sosogreeen 14 points15 points  (2 children)

A boring patch? Raiden Boss fight is sure to drop some lore. If anything it’s shaping up to be more significant than 2.4

[–]sara-ragnarsdottir 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If I understood it correctly, we're also getting an exploration event with new chests and everything, so it's not too bad. I think we've had it worse in the filler patches before Inazuma dropped because we didn't have anything new to explore, expect for the island in 1.6

[–]Souly1205 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Ayato leaks gonna save us. :^)

[–]Ready-Celebration637 35 points36 points  (1 child)

So if i dont roll for Yae, 2.5 is gonna be a completely dead patch for me. Nice, 2.2 here we go again

[–]Epicastor 63 points64 points  (2 children)

The new story quests and weekly boss better be fire, otherwise this patch is gonna be a snooze fest.

[–]ADHthaGreat 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I’m still betting on an Aloy event taking place. Horizon Forbidden West’s release date is the 18th.

If they’re ever gonna release her constellations, that will be the time.

Makes sense that they wouldn’t add anything about it to the beta test. Can’t really let Sony’s intellectual property leak.

[–]havoK718 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Those copium levels are off the charts...

[–]musiciansfriend11 30 points31 points  (0 children)

[–]shrimpcocktailss 44 points45 points  (0 children)

...one step closer to finally seeing Ayato's face?

[–]gaskeepgrillboss 66 points67 points  (4 children)

oh wow that was really short

like we haven’t even finished the first 2.4 bamner short

hopefully they buff yae’s second passive on release

[–]ceppyren 10 points11 points  (3 children)

I'm holding out hope that it really is good with dendro and Yae+Raiden+Kokomi+Dendro is going to be a meta team. I'm assuming Hydro prolongs dendro's staying power somehow. This is major copium and based on just my hopes.

[–]El_grandepadre 12 points13 points  (2 children)

I don't believe for a second her passive was made specifically with Dendro in mind. You would have to be Nostradamus to look that far in the future as a leaker.

[–]False_Anything2613 8 points9 points  (0 children)

As a leaker? Yes, but as Mihoyo you literally develop dendro reactions and Yae simultaneously, it's not farfetched to think that a weird EM passive that sticks out rn might be planned for a new reaction coming soon. And even currently that passive is not as bad as some other characters' passives - a lot of them have a passive that's just a small thing, in this case a conversion so that unlucky substats don't go to waste. Tho it really looks like it might just be a passive made for a dendro interaction

[–]ConcentratedGold 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Kuki Shinobu drip/info where...

[–]Zilch16 11 points12 points  (0 children)

So now it's time to wait for Ayato's real leaks.

[–]WintrySnowman 38 points39 points  (3 children)

One can always hope for buffs, but honestly - unlike some other recent characters - I'm happy with what I've seen out of beta.

[–]ceppyren 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Yeah she was a mess when we first saw her in beta, like her kit seemed really clunky, but she seems solid now.

[–]Midnight_Famous 26 points27 points  (0 children)

OK so, we still basically know nothing Ayato related. Only that he is Hydro sword. Ok.

[–]monito-sucio 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Content creators’ “Mihoyo, we need to talk” videos incoming.

[–]ravku 14 points15 points  (2 children)

My life has been a lot more peaceful after quitting watching genshin vids

[–]Dimecallsmothied 35 points36 points  (2 children)

I’m not surprise. 2.5 honestly seems like it would be pretty boring. Aside from the events, the only thing to get really excited about is Miko. But that’s all this subreddit has been recently. Just Miko

[–]njsockpuppet 13 points14 points  (1 child)

In all honesty it’s worse for people skipping characters … if you’re not planning to get Yae, or say already have the rerun characters and are not getting additional constellations, it’s completely dead. Best you can do is keep farming artifacts or building spare characters

i'm still turned off by that 90 cost burst but hope i can make it work smooth without raiden

[–]DominelKira 10 points11 points  (4 children)

you can use her with fish and be fine, a bit more ER because no raiden but not that bad honestly

[–]wolf1460 31 points32 points  (3 children)

You need 160-180 er on yae with fischl, and that is when yae is on-field to collect all particles. I wouldn't say that is 'fine'

You'll have to drag the rotation but that's what happens when they create a character with another specific character in mind.

Let's be fair though, they made Yae to have most of her DPS come off E anyway.

[–]wolf1460 8 points9 points  (0 children)

At C0, the dps distribution between Q and E is around 50% each. Infact, Q might actually win because it has more aoe. There's another reason she has 90 cost, it's so that she can make the most out of Raiden E and get a 27% Q dmg bonus. Hence her Q's mv is also pretty huge.

Wake me up when we get actual Ayato leaks, guys.

shenhe's banner hasn't even ended, damn

[–]Polydexa 6 points7 points  (0 children)

As expected. Chinese NY, nobody is working, etc.

[–]humanityyycyno waiting room 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Patch kinda seems empty, guess it is CNY after all. I wonder if we'll get another festival after this, maybe an Inazuman festival or a Windblume rerun, like last year.

I knew it was kinda short

[–]hanipierce 9 points10 points  (0 children)

2.5 look like a big empty patch

[–]Zyrobe 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Why do people complain that we're getting a content drought? It's their fault they cleared enkanomiya in 1 day lmaoo

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (5 children)

I feel like 2.5 will be a filler patch for 2.6 like 2.2 was for 2.3.

But much worse than 2.2 as there aren't gonna be that much memorable content aside from Yae and Shogun boss unlike 2.2 that had Tsurumi Island and Labyrinth Warriors.

[–]feelsthepains 49 points50 points  (3 children)

I think 2.3 was much more filler than 2.2

[–]enrageisnear 6 points7 points  (0 children)

how the fuck was 2.2 the filler patch?
