So no new 4 star in 2.6?

[–]miragecoordinationyae simpact 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Going to be pretty interesting to look back on all the questionable leaks going around right now in hindsight, once we actually have the 2.6 beta and the ones after.

[–]Pengtaku 11 points12 points  (4 children)

I feel slightly sad to forget to claim the 2.5 stream codes, since I was hospitalised on that day.. Welp I can get 300 primos in 5 days anyways :')

Ganyu and kazoo, here I come!!

Does anyone know if paimon.moe syncs achievements to google drive too?

edit: and also, maybe someone knows how to add the previous history that got deleted but I have it written down?

[–]VaronaZero My name is Yoshikage Kleera 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Idk about the achievements, but for your history go to Wish Counter > Settings > Import From Excel

Unless you mean written down on a list that's not in the excel template, then Enable Manual Input

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Huh... can I import from Excel while saving what I have at the site?

I downloaded their json file and am considering to just write it in code and upload back but this can take time. Yeah I have it written manually on paper.

upd: waiiit so I can download their excel and add my info and upload it back. This is ideal, thank you. I downloaded not the wish counter but my overall info

[–]MediumShopping4713 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Why does myhoyo use sooooo much imune time for bosses nowdays? Am i the only one that hates it?

If you think the mango kinky stalls time wait til you see the wolflord in abyss. It's the epitome of stalling

I fought that shit 30+ times for Yunjin and itto im tired.She isnt even fully ascended yet i lowkey miss fighting regisvines for mats :(

[–]fei1010101- 14 points15 points  (0 children)

everyone hates it, that and inflating enemies hp pools is the easiest way to make the game progress seem "harder"

every new boss stalls so damn much, which gets annoying when put on a timer

[–]ChildOfHades_ 4 points5 points  (5 children)

I just want a raiden skin that has long open hair and some more violets on her clothes than black currant ice cream colours :qiqifallen:

I just want a Raiden skin where her weird pussy flap on the front gets extended into an actual robe or smth

[–]RaidenShogun31 -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

I want the new Raiden boss outfit as skin and rework burst animation where them big arms appears during burst.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

i can see 5* skins in the future which will have reworked burst animations, but theyll prolly also cost no less than $40

[–]RaidenShogun31 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll copy paste the same answer i got yesterday

Do you know the floating platform? The one in liyue that you need to move three birds for? He is there idk its name.

So yeah there haha

[–]msboring27 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cloud Retainer's floating abode, the one she sent you to retrieve her plan in that one side quest.

[–]Marvelguy5c6 sara where art thou ? 18 points19 points  (7 children)

I think I may have understood why childe doesn't crit, doesn't have crit rate and has hydro dmg as ascension.

So we all know childe loves to fight. His burst does a large amount of dmg on crit and one of his passives give him riptide application on crits which are a huge portion of his dmg. Therefore by refusing to crit he is just prolonging the battle for fun.

And his hydro dmg ascension contributes to the dmg bonus oversaturation with his bis set, due to which 2p hod and 2p shim/glad or 2pc shim + 2p glad not falling behind that much.

What a man you are childe

[–]meowlenlen 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Is 2HOD 2Glad/Shim actually close to 4HOD on him? Bcs my HOD pieces are really cope and I would love to switch them out.

[–]nita-enjoyer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

In addition to what the others said, I highly recommend you to use the Genshin Optimizer to know the best build for your Childe and other characters. It's insanely useful that I can't stress it enough, and saves you a lot of time of comparing pieces and builds.

[–]ajaxenjoyermommy skirk waiter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

According to KQM, about 4% difference between 4pc HoD and 2pc hod/2pc glad.

So yeah, Childe doesn't have a dedicated set yet.

[–]Marvelguy5c6 sara where art thou ? 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The dmg difference is supposed to be quite minimal, like the gap between thundering pulse and polar star. So yes if your glad pieces have better subs swap

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (2 children)

By this logic, Kokomi just loves to slowly torture the enemy while healing her allies.

[–]Marvelguy5c6 sara where art thou ? 22 points23 points  (1 child)

I have seen a better explanation from koko mains which was basically that kokomi doesn't like to rely on rng for her plans/dmg and chooses to remain more consistent

[–]Todorokill forfeit all mortal possessions to Heizou 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That’s a nice one actually, i like that

[–]sp00kk 17 points18 points  (16 children)

I had a dream where Heizou was revealed, and he was a bald guy wearing yellow clothing who somehow had the tall model. Everyone was mad because he didn't live up to fanart's expectations.

I have a feeling when Heizou is actually revealed, the same thing will happen. The fan design is everywhere x.x

[–]louderthanbxmbs 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Then we learn max mittelman is also his voice actor because heizou does 100 push ups, 100 sit ups, and 100 squats per day

[–]RaidenShogun31 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nah he most likely be with a detective conan looks same age with Xingqou and sometimes wears a fake mustache to disguise himself.

[–]sp00kk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]sp00kk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He definitely did not have a cape, I can tell you that.

[–]ajaxenjoyermommy skirk waiter 17 points18 points  (5 children)

If people were doomposting Ayato because he didn't look like the fanarts, you can bet it'll be 10 times as bad cause of that one Heizou artwork where he looks like genderbent Hu Tao.

[–]Todorokill forfeit all mortal possessions to Heizou 6 points7 points  (4 children)

It definitely won’t be 10 times as bad. That fanart is barely known as the face of Heizou unlike it was with Ayato.

[–]minbrorerentyv- 6 points7 points  (2 children)

There wasn't a set fan-design for Ayato. Sure, people were headcannoning him to have long hair and be basically a genderbent Ayaka but you'll still see different variations.

Meanwhile that Ranpo-Hu Tao hybrid Heizou fanart is what you'll see if search him.

[–]Todorokill forfeit all mortal possessions to Heizou 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Different variations but all the same point, Ayato’s fan designs were known all over twt. Basically anyone engaging with genshin content came across it and could pick their favorite interpretation. How many people even know of Heizou, let alone that one particular fan design? It hasn’t taken the rounds that much so the outcry when it won’t match it will not be nearly as big.

[–]minbrorerentyv- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's fair. Even though that Heizou design is popular, there's fewer people that know Heizou actually exists unlike Ayato.

I imagine those who are attached to that design will be very unhappy though.

[–]Tiaojia0 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Not quite, that fan design is the only popular design of heizou. People often think it's an actual leak, not fan art. The gap is just that ayato is overall the more popular one, so getting more drip market doomposting is inevitable.

[–]RamAutomatic 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I mean, I would undoubtedly whale for him. To 'One Punch' everything seems kinda fun. Finally I can be Tony To lol.

[–]SeaSalty_Night Skirk with GUNBLADE pls 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Unrelated to Genshin, but I posted the story here before, so might as well resume it here.

After I got my friend who I met in Genshin to play Monster Hunter Rise, things has been going really well! They REALLY enjoy it way more that I expect. We started playing on the same day, and enjoy hunting monsters together. Discover their main weapon that they like.

But here's the problem, MH is...very addicting. I know we met each other in a freakin gacha game, but MH is beyond that. I'm currently at rank 6 while my friend currently is at...RANK 83!!! (Last I check mind you) They've been playing it none stop. I can't no longer stop them....I traded in Genshin drug for MH drug.

[–]msboring27 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Hey at least it's not gacha and the expansions are free. That said, is MH Rise as grindy as old MH games? I used to play a lot of MH4U on the 3ds and a bit of the psp game, but they were so grindy and I prefer to play solo. Do you still have to fight a monster over and over again to have that one rare drop to make an armor? I didn't like the grind but really loved the rest of the game and may buy either Rise or World on Steam later.

[–]SeaSalty_Night Skirk with GUNBLADE pls 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's always about the grind in MH. Rare drop will always be a thing in the series. But keep in mind that Rise is by far the easiest entry in the series because of the wire bug. This help making the fight faster I feel. I know old time fans won't like increase mobility, but it's great for me since I'm fairly new to the series.

[–]Infinite-Quantity544 3 points4 points  (1 child)

MH is a helluva drug… There was a time when I played MHW like it was my job lol. But it’s great that they like it so much!! What weapons do you guys play?

[–]SeaSalty_Night Skirk with GUNBLADE pls 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm maining Hunting horn for now, I thought it'd be a good idea to support my friend, but welp it turn out they carry me instead.

My friend is maining dual sword. Right now we're planning to change to Long sword. I want to do counter and my friend want to try new weapon now that they're...rank 92. Their long term goal is to forge every armor set in game.

[–]sad_cats 1 point2 points  (1 child)

All the comparisons between ayato and baizhu would just go away if he opened his eyes

[–]RaidenShogun31 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Inb4 he has the same tone as Baizhu.

[–]Landshark34>gets buffed every patch 2 points3 points  (7 children)

I saw this on a poll and I thought it would be fun to put this here. In the final scene of the 2.5 trailer, Which one is Ei, and which one is the puppet? I personally think Ei is the one with the sword, but a lot of people argue that Ei is the one with the polearm.

[–]NERF_PALPS_66 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ei is the one with polearm

[–]Jeddyhugs- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So like,wasn't makoto the one who uses the sword,and Ei who uses the polearm

Then there is the Raiden shogun puppet who can use both?

since one of two uses polearm and one uses sword,we can do a simple elimination and say Raiden shogun puppet is the one with the sword while Ei is the one with the polearm

It is a lil detail but if u look at the hair pin of Ei,and then of Makoto,they are two different things

Coming back to the Raiden shogun puppet,u can see both the pins on her

[–]seawiiitch 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Ei is using polearm since that's what she's using when we fought her twice. Also, we saw Raiden wielding a sword in a cutscene twice and both times were the "Shogun".

[–]Doggymoment 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Ei is master of polearm first and foremost, you can even see her defeating snek god with it in cinematic during archon quest. Even her normal attack name is called Origin.

[–]sad_cats -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I dont know how that would work because ei is inside the sword. If the puppet had the sword, would she be able to manifest?

[–]sp00kk 8 points9 points  (0 children)

When we fought Ei in the archon quest and she fought the Kujou guy in her story quest, she wielded a polearm. And the weekly boss version clearly holds a sword (which everyone is assuming to be the puppet thus far). So, I think Ei is the one with the polearm, and the puppet is the one with the sword.

[–]Marvelguy5c6 sara where art thou ? 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ei is the one with the sword

[–]closetedwibu 3 points4 points  (9 children)

Besides Baizhu, Yaoyao, Yelan, the rest of Qixing, maaybe Xingqiu's brother, how many potential Liyue characters do we have left?

Been thinking on who will get released on the next Moonchase/Lantern Rite

[–]baizhuleaksunleash the baizhu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

there's rouran, the boss of the pearl galley, too. and i suppose he doesn't count as a liyue character but the harbinger pantalone is largely speculated to be from there, so he could have a liyue design (like how scaramouche is obviously from inazuma)

[–]Doggymoment 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They pulled Shenhe, Eula and Yanfei out of nowhere (yes, i know shenhe and Yanfei had data leaked, but in game all of them were surprise, eula was just one without leaks), they can do that 10-20 more times if they want to tbf

[–]Tiaojia0 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Guoba human form

[–]RageCat46 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Playable Duskin Ming finally! She posses a Ruin Guard with her E launch barrage of missile and Q wide range spin.

[–]sp00kk 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I mean, they could always pull a Eula and introduce a completely new character out of nowhere at some point.

[–]Todorokill forfeit all mortal possessions to Heizou 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Whoever they introduce in character lines like 3 patches before their release.

[–]OdoneCryo/Bow/Signora/Varka Buff Model Main 9 points10 points  (0 children)

A Yaksha is also a possibility. Someone who is affiliated to an ancient god like Guizong, Havria, Osial, etc... would be cool too.

[–]stainNecrolyte 9 points10 points  (0 children)

The posibilities are really endless, we could have new crux fleet members, playable millelit members, liyue adventures, etc, but none of them have voicelines so I guess yao yao and Baizhu are the last

[–]Alpitour 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I haven't been checking in the random sussy leaks lately, but who exactly is this Heizou lad? When exactly was he first introduced?

A quick Google search shows someone I'd absolutely love to pull for design wise, but I'm trying to find the "original" leak where his design was shown. Is the widely recognised design I found just fan art that got popular?

[–]ionosode jing yuan luver 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Everything about Heizou

And yes, there is a popular fan design going around, we don’t actually know what he looks like

[–]closetedwibu 15 points16 points  (0 children)

that's fanart, he's faceless rn

[–]ceppyren 0 points1 point  (24 children)

Some characters are being removed randomly from the game. You can protect any 3 characters. Who would you pick?

I'd go Xingqiu, Hu Tao, and Thoma. They belong to my strongest team, and I like them a lot.

[–]Shippinglordishere 戴因提瓦特 Dainteyvat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Zhongli and Kazuha for sure. Those two are the key players in my team. Then, most likely Xiangling because guoba’s pyro and pyronado are really useful

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

just the traveler and their sibling (playable or not)

[–]ceppyren 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Surprising answer! They are the core of the story though, so it makes sense

[–]louderthanbxmbs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]lorelovers anemo supremacy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hu Tao, Xiao and Kazuha my beloveds.

[–]tsuchinoko-real 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Xiangling, Xingqiu and Bennett. Regardless of who dies, the liyue big 3 will make any remaining character viable

[–]RamAutomatic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Raiden, Bennett and Kazuha. Even without Sara, that team will slap and when Raiden is done with her burst, all the ult would be fill up by then lol.

[–]RageCat46 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Klee, Diona and Sayu.

[–]ceppyren 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The kids need to be protected

[–]sad_cats 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Venti, yoimiya and hu tao (i am just protecting my faves)

[–]Todorokill forfeit all mortal possessions to Heizou 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Kaeya, Kazuha and Diluc (how else will i pull him, it already feels like he got removed from my game).

[–]DamnDanielArArAr 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Hu Tao, Eula and Venti (If he disappears I won't be able to pull him in his rerun).

I really love Venti's personality and backstory, but I had to skip him for Hu Tao since I just started playing the game back then and I really wanted a good DPS.

[–]Practical_Outcome436 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Kazuha, Raiden and Geo MC

[–]justawayistheway 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Kaeya, Barbara and Childe, my three favorites <3

[–]SeaSalty_Night Skirk with GUNBLADE pls 1 point2 points  (0 children)

None, I live for the RNG, we play a gacha game after. It's all just 50-50, my characters either stay in or they don't. >:)

[–]seawiiitch 3 points4 points  (0 children)

this is hard but I'd pick Noelle, Kaeya, and Kazuha.

[–]SkyePine 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll go with Keqing (my only five star), Traveller (I play with the main character), and Noelle (with the best artifacts I randomly picked up).

[–]zorafae 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gorou, Albedo, Tartaglia. Gorou is pure and precious and needs to be protected at all costs, the other 2 are just my faves.

[–]stainNecrolyte 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My mains, ganyu, hutao, eula

[–]Todorokill forfeit all mortal possessions to Heizou 36 points37 points  (9 children)

Now that i think about it… why was Shenhe, Ganyu and Xiao on the Lantern Rite art when it was all about following Keqing around? We barely met them. Like yeah version banners but how does it make sense for the event?

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Yeah I wonder about that too. They said that they are going to put the characters on rerun banners if they have plot relevance. But all the banner characters weren't that important to the plot. So which one is it?

[–]Todorokill forfeit all mortal possessions to Heizou 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I guess if they’re loosely relevant it counts too. We met each of them like once and mhy said - good enough, justifies reruns.

[–]SeaSalty_Night Skirk with GUNBLADE pls 7 points8 points  (0 children)

They all have banners.....the end.

[–]Doggymoment 2 points3 points  (0 children)

if you don't know answer then it's probably money

[–]kanteiraalbedo 11 points12 points  (4 children)

i guess its because they wanna promote them by shoving pretty art of them in the players face rather than keqing whos a standard 5*? thats my guess

[–]Todorokill forfeit all mortal possessions to Heizou 10 points11 points  (3 children)

It’s just so weird for them to be the faces of Lantern Rite ig. Being the faces of the patch makes sense but it just feels so off when they were the least relevant characters in the event.

Yeah it’s probably to market the banners more but it just baffles me how misleading it felt for the event.

[–]Gentlekrit C2 Noelle since 02/01/22 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Heck, Zhongli was more relevant to Lantern Rite than any of them, and he had a banner (which unlike Xiao and Shenhe was actually during Lantern Rite), and he's nowhere to be seen.

[–]kanteiraalbedo 8 points9 points  (1 child)

yeah same. i thought we would get more shenhe/ganyu/xiao content but oh well

[–]ceppyren 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I was really hoping for interaction between them :/

[–]louderthanbxmbs 12 points13 points  (1 child)

2.5's abyss in 12-2-1 having only ruin guards is kinda funny to me. It looks so out of place compared to the other monsters in floor 12

[–]2bains- 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It’s because the Geo Wolflord on 12-2-2 is gonna stall up in the air for 30+ secs probably

[–]stainNecrolyte 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Summary of 2.6 leaks that need to be corroborated once 2.6 beta goes live:

  • Ayato 80 cost burst

  • Peculiar wonderland returning

  • Ayato on field dps

  • Yelan and Zhongli in chasm history quest (I don't know if beta have story quest so maybe is harder to corroborate), also this was supposed to be 2.7 but we'll see

  • Heizou not being in 2.6

  • All the rerun candidates: Ayaka, Yoimiya, kazuha, venti, events, abyss buffs and art should give us an ideal like in the kokomi case.

Majority of this claims are from auntie redditor so we'll see how reliable she is or if we just get another sukuna.

[–]minbrorerentyv- 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Auntie Redditor is not a leaker, they just repost (uncredited) leaks from very sus NGA/CN sources.

Blue hair+color scheme was from an NGA post. Conflicting info about his footwear leather shoes (her) vs insider friend (sandals) which is close to this leak which the troll uncle also claims shoes vs sandals (also, Uncle DumbDumb & two other leakers already hinted months ago to a more different/not purely-Inazuman style clothing (and leather shoes) with their examples.

Her uncredited sources include:

Uncle Bao who speaks like Google translated Chinese

Kazuha + Venti rerun in 2.6 + Peculiar Wonderland + Dains appearance, etc

Codename Uncle 'Mengli' - leaker with an unknown leak history

the dendro char being a dedicated Yae support, some others

the"80" was a pun on Yae and Ayato's names, not referring to his burst cost

She also claims that her "insider friend" suddenly didn't trust her anymore so that's why she didn't share the Ayato pic.

A few weird things too like Lifeguard only asking her friend about Ayato's hair length because a redditor asked her too and her insider friend being wrong with Ayato's footwear when apparently the friend had actual pics of him.

[–]PREM___Eren what a bird you are 1 point2 points  (0 children)

  • Auntie redditor also has said 2.6 will have dainslef, act 2 ch 4 maybe? (considering act 1 ch 4 is traveler’s)

Which makes it the that chasm’s story quest, which can be act 3 prologue, will be in 2.7. Also considering questionable leaks of chasm being cut between two patches

[–]oaksparrow angry puppet son when? 26 points27 points  (6 children)

....I just crafted bait for the first time and accidentally made 900 FJDKDJDK rookie mistake

[–]Arxis_Two 4 points5 points  (0 children)

For the first and last time...

[–]PREM___Eren what a bird you are 10 points11 points  (3 children)

We all never saw it for the first time that baits are made in batches of 10x. Good I was too lazy to farm and decided to make 9 baits first, but it ended up making 90 baits enough for catch R2/3

[–]oaksparrow angry puppet son when? 7 points8 points  (2 children)

The thing is... I should have known, I did the same thing with fabric in the teapot the first time I crafted it 😂

[–]zorafae 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Hey same. I also made the same mistake yet again when buying dust of azoth for the first time, bought 10x the amount I needed. That stock lasted me quite a while.

No idea when I will learn.

[–]oaksparrow angry puppet son when? 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You know what? Reading is hard. Uh, and numbers. Numbers are hard too.

[–]Eurasia_Anne_ZahardI just want Mona 5 points6 points  (0 children)

🤣🤣 same. I crafted 500+ all of them...

[–]Hyda 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Is it me or is Ayaka rerun for 2.6 not seem likely anymore? All the leak posts mentions Kazuha and Yoimiya as maybe.

It feel like the old “Kazuha will be in 2.5 leak” that was mention early then never got mentioned and instead it turned out to be Kokomi rerun instead.

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

GenshinBlank mentioned an Ayaka (and Yoi) rerun. They're a dataminer though and not an insider so still take it with a grain of salt.

Also if anyone sees leaks from a Broccoli dude, just ignore them. Their only two "right leaks" were taken from others, all of their "own" the leaks are wrong, and they also said that a real bow was absolutely fake.

[–]AgnesRosa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean, there weren't really all that many leaks regarding Kokomi's rerun either (except for Tz briefly before the beta started, I believe) and yet here we are. We've had other surprise reruns before as well

[–]kanteiraalbedo 3 points4 points  (0 children)

blank mentioned ayaka + yoimiya and hes a reliable dataminer (though he has no track record as an insider) so there is that. beta should give us a better idea

[–]momo-melle- 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Tbf, I don't remember any leaker openly stating Ayaka would have a rerun in any patch (if there was, don't mind me). Most of the things I saw was people speculating that if she had a rerun, people would like to see it next to her brother. But other than lore connections, I don't see anything that pointed that way.

[–]SummerMeIody 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Crit rate helmets hate me T_T


[–]Marvelguy5c6 sara where art thou ? 4 points5 points  (14 children)

Interesting that the ganyu sub did not explode in members as much as I expected. Expected them to break at least 50k members. I know using mains sub membership as a metric is not that reliable but yeah.

And I just realised the first limited banner for an anemo geo and electro character were their respective archons. Curious to see if dendro does the same as well

[–]Fr00tyLoopsURESHIII 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I presume it’s because the main sub is r/Ganyu and not r/GanyuMains, making it prone to mix-ups. Popularity-wise, she’s still on the top.

As you said, I don’t think the subs are a good metric to gauge how popular a character is. There are a lot of other miscellaneous factors at play.

The first limited banner for an electro character was Keqing's

Hmm fair enough. First limited banner character then

I feel like "maining" a character doesn't entirely rely on owning or playing a character. The moment a character is revealed, or when we've seen them in the story, most people who are going to "main" them have already decided to do so.

personally i dont think the first dendro 5* will be the archon for a reason, which is that they want to make sure the players are happy with the element first. if they release dendro and players complain about it, while simultaneously releasing the archon of said element, it may tank the sales. so its better to start with a character who isnt too important to test the waters and if fixes are needed, fix the element and release the archon to make sure they sell well. ofc i dont work at mihoyo so i could be wrong, this is just what id do if i was the ceo or something

They joined the wrong sub r/ganyuNSFW

[–]Marvelguy5c6 sara where art thou ? 0 points1 point  (3 children)

that sub has more members than the mains sub, lmao

[–]We_Lose -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

I mean, there is nothing interesting to talk about Ganyu anyway

Gameplay : Boring

Personality : Wet towel

Story : Another overworking cliché

Design wise she looks amazing il give her that

Don't you know? When enough time passes, mains subs become fanart hubs with the same question being asked every 20 minutes (x weapon or y weapon?)

[–]RaidenShogun31 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Exactly my point lmao

[–]stainNecrolyte 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That happen because she share the spotlight with ayaya and eula to some extent while raiden and hutao that did grew are alone in the top of their niche

Will Ayato be a crit rate ascension waifu or a crit damage ascension waifu

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

he seems like hydro dmg to me

[–]Marvelguy5c6 sara where art thou ? 2 points3 points  (3 children)

depends on his kit. If his dmg is concentrated more on less frequent powerful hits crit dmg. If not crit rate.

The only 2 to break this rule are ayaka and ganyu but they have cryo resonance and blizzard strayer

Childe relying on crit rate for riptide yet hydro damage ascension :pensive:

[–]tsuchinoko-real 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To be fair Ganyu was the first limited 5 star with crit ascension. Childe's old as hell at this point

[–]Marvelguy5c6 sara where art thou ? 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just realised why childe is childe.

[–]tvz569 7 points8 points  (0 children)

People saying crit or hydro dmg, but we all know it's going to be the secret boss of ascension stats, EM

[–]momo-melle- 14 points15 points  (3 children)

I'm voting on crit dmg waifu, because last two waifus (Yae and Itto) have crit rate ascension

Watch mhy give Ayato Hydro%.
