        Paimon lost imo.
        But worst paimon is EN paimon as always.

        Which reminds me in the early game EN paimon had a far less annoying voice.

    Because it's not worth it. Once you have explored everything, there's nothing to do. Abyss is easy, boring and repetitive. Just wait a few years until the story is complete, then play some offline version of it.

              Honestly this. I was rank 57 on genshin but it lacked way too much QoL for being a mobile game so there was a point I just couldn't bother farming relics and I quit, now I just log in periodically to play story quests. It demands way too much attention for a damn mobile gaha. The one advantage it has is the open world, but is it worth it to forsake all semblance of QoL? For me personally it wasn't, if I wanna play open world there are proper games for it

          I said "good", not implying I like it myself, but it's what brought acclaim to this shit company. New stuff they're making is failing to retain even the old players, let alone bring in new ones

          Anyway, don't get your hopes up about the combat, this type of fast more responsive combat is basically a midwit trap. It looks good at a glance, but actually playing it is awful
          Your character will ice-skate towards enemies so hard you can play blindfolded with your finger glued to the attack button
          Because it's so fast, there is no risk/reward tradeoff for using abilities so you become a cooldown monkey clicking every button as soon as it's available. And since the player's effect on anything is greatly diminished the devs can accurately calculate how much damage you do with a spreadsheet to cuck you out of F2P max clears with pinpoint precision

          Slower clunkier game with less abilities is unironically more fun to play. Honkai Impact 3rd is a good demonstration of what I'm talking about. That game is complete ass, ZZZ will be complete ass, and Wuwa will be complete ass, all for the same reason
          All these Genshin killer devs either don't understand, or they're doing it on purpose fully expecting their game to be bad for some quick bucks. I'm thinking it's the latter

            exactly why I'm skeptical and even if it is good doubt it is something I would want to play every single day. Auto battle option especially if the combat is as bad as genshin should be a must, hell even if you have a good combat system a gacha better have an auto option AND a skip button

                it does. lately people with C3 Raiden haven't been able to clear abyss because she's just too hard to play compared to other post 3.0 alternatives. with Fontaine characters they have been buffing constellations because they weren't good enough.
                anyway, if you only look at skilled players you will see that there isn't a fixed rotation for a character or a team, but it changes according to the chamber you face and the investment level of each character

                In Genshin.
                Because the game still allows a certain degree of freedom to the player because of the limitations its slow combat brings

                In HI3rd the difference between a "skilled" player and the average dude is literal milliseconds
                That's a fact btw, the game has PvP leaderboards, and the internet will even tell you what score you're supposed to get with each popular setup for a given challenge

                My problem with Genshin lies in the fact that you also have this exact "rotation-input" setup but instead of being able to play on auto you must do everything manually because it leans on giving the player the illusion that his input matters, when in the end you're just pressing skill/ult/auto/swap in the same order

                Why do you even care about manual gacha slavery vs auto gacha slavery
                It's still gacha slavery and you're still stupid for engaging with it.
                I did it, I was stupid. Now I'm not doing it and I'm just a tiny bit smarter for it. Be like me

                Slavery isn't fun no matter what, play these like it's a single-player action game
                And when judged as a single-player action game Genshin is sort of decent, you still get to whiff attacks, get chainstunned, and frick up execution in all sorts of non-quantifiable ways.

                Those faster games are streamlined to the point you basically don't affect anything if you follow the flowchart correctly. You still have to press the buttons, the way you do it just doesn't affect anything
                That's why HI3rd is dogshit.
                Wuwa is closer to HI3rd than it is to Genshin in terms of combat, despite the game itself being a Genshin clone.
                This is true for every single combat gacha I've seen and that's why they're all dogshit.
                PGR - dogshit
                ZZZ - dogshit

          You know in Genshin how you get an artifact and you feed it other artifacts you get from the same place and that both levels it and unlock it's substats? Well in WW you need a special item to unlock substats and you farm it from a different place than xp for artifacts. And they both cost stamina.

      Total enemy HP has been consistently going up to compensate for players grinding the same artifact domain for years. Enemy damage / aggression is also much higher
      The amount of crit on artifact substats that was considered good back when you played is now trash, and you're expected to have the kind of artifacts whales paid for on release
      Some general powerceep happened too.

          why must gachas always keep worrying about newbies and 'returners' which are just tourists that wont stay around long anyway and endgame is never reachable to them regardless? if you don't keep making content harder and new challenges for existing long time players what purpose is there for them to keep grinding/whaling.

            Simply because limiting your playerbase to the same perpetually bored whales will inevitably bring your revenue down when they find a fresher gacha to play. HI3 just got one of its biggest updates a while ago, yet HSR gets way more players joining every day even running on dry patches. Why? Endgame teams look easier to attain with 5* characters being handed out for free

          idk what's going on now because I no longer play, but that picture has 2 obvious patterns:
          1. On average it gets harder over time
          2. Difficulty is cranked up on dead patches later into the cycle to milk the most dedicated gacha slaves when casuals are taking a break

          Like there might be an outlier or 2 because hoyo sucks at their own game, but the intent is clear

            >1. On average it gets harder over time
            Not in the current version (4.0 to 4.7)
            HP doesn't relate to difficulty, think this way, an enemy has 50% elemental res and 1.2 million HP vs an enemy that has 900k but 75%
            it should be easy math, besides shields that work as a second health but doesn't count towards HP numbers and a lot of other small things that make all the difference
            >2. Difficulty is cranked up on dead patches later into the cycle to milk the most dedicated gacha slaves when casuals are taking a break
            this is kinda true, the difficulty ramps up in X.5 till X.8

              I'm not entirely sure about this one because again, I no longer play, but I think with 4.x patch cycle they're trying to move away from HP bloat to forcing elemental hard counters.

              Remember that one abyss where everyone ran 4 hydros on one side? That's textbook HI3rd abyss design
              If they increase HP bloat, you just whale for 1 strong setup and beat everything with it. If everything requires a specific predetermined answer, they can sell you more shit.
              I'm not sure if they actually committed to this approach because I'm already out, but do keep this kind of israeliteery in mind, they already did it once and I think they'll do it again because revenue is going down

                It's the other way around, 4.X is more HP bloat with less of anything else, although I haven't done the current one yet
                but either way, just trust me, 3.7 was far harder than anything that happened in 4.X
                I started doing 4* only runs because it was too easy

                >Remember that one abyss where everyone ran 4 hydros on one side?

                I understand you fears, but it's not the case, it's close to having a decent amount of different teams to deal with different bosses and situations, but in reality you can brute force most stuff or find clever solutions
                Also, Dendro changed a lot of how the game works, it enabled a reaction that let's everyone do damage with little investment and gives you an flex slot for the last character

                Anyway I'm like 80% sure they're doing it and all the boss spam is the indicator because Genshin bosses (in theory) requires specific counters
                You can still beat it with whatever because some whales suck and it needs to be easy enough for them, but some things will not work and overall variety is going down.
                I also replayed abyss a lot to experiment and noticed all the good strategies converging harder with each cycle and quit because frankly every part of the game other than abyss combat already sucked at that point

                oh right, this was exactly one abyss before I started doing only 4*s, I think I did a solo with Neuv this one, but all you need is a single hydro to deal with the shields really, like for an example, Xinqiu has an absurd application of hydro, both through his burst and his hydro aura (through those small swords that stay around you)

                >I also replayed abyss a lot to experiment and noticed all the good strategies converging harder with each cycle and quit because frankly every part of the game other than abyss combat already sucked at that point
                I agree with you there, but I lost all my common sense after I went to youtube and found some dudes doing 3.7 with only 4*s and I think some asian dude even managed to do a run with only 6 4* characters (this one wasn't on youtube, so I think it might have been a fever dream), and that was not only the hardest abyss, but also one that needed the most specific elements to deal with all those heralds

                lel, HB is so fricking broken, you can use anyone as the last slot and fill any role for any situation you need, and those other 3 characters can be all 4* stars with the most basic artifacts and weapons

                If weapons were more generic (so you could move them around between many characters and still retain most of their efficiency) instead of being tailor made for specific characters this wouldn't be such an issue.

                Relics are an insane part of boosting a character's strength, and I honestly find the grind far far harder than Genshin's.
                Light Cones giving that extra "important stat +20%" makes a far greater difference in damage compared to what guides and websites usually state. Hoyo's selling a crutch and they know it.

                The grind itself is easier because it's fully automated.
                But the rolling of Relics is way worse because there's a bunch of extra (read: shit for most characters) stats.

                >Effect Res (only relevant on tanks, but generally still bad cause good tanks have a bunch naturally, many Healers also circumvent the need for this stat)
                >Break Effect (only relevant on characters that naturally scale it since it's a substitute for just doing damage, Firefly will want it for example)
                >Speed (actually matters, making a "perfect" gear loadout even harder to get since you want some speed, but also have to balance out your speed against other party members for buffs 'n shit

                It's a gacha, it is inherently pro-profit anti-fun with a priority on utilizing gambling to slow character acquisition instead of just having challenges to unlock characters.

    If you have to deal with all that graphic and the gameplay isn't even unique, why play? Could play a lower end game for gameplay. Could watch a streamer play it for the art/ story / character.

    I played 10 hours and was only 50% through the prologue snd dropped it. Game just exists to waste time. Takes 20 minutes to do dailies and after that I don’t feel like playing anymore. SR only takes 5 minutes for dailies, though main story lately is a fricking slog of words words words that I skip through until sctual plot moves forward.

    paymon became too fricking annoying for me and dialogue is horrendous, I play starrail and somehow they manage to make it shorter there.
    They also don't have any endgame content that would appeal to me, combat mechanics are fun but nothing is hard and it became boring slogfest. Game is very popular with casuals so they are very afraid to make any distinctive pandering or game modes that can filter people which results in most bland, watered down experience

    I dropped it after inazuma. The entire game exists to shill characters for $100 and then abandon them 2 weeks later.
    None of these characters even do anything new, just the same shit with bigger numbers. The combat is fun but lacks depth.
    The plot was vaguely interesting, but it's awkwardly mixed between filler that exists purely to bait those bi-weekly logins so you can be shilled on irrelevant characters. Hard to know in advance whether you're logging in for something fun, or some dating sim bullshit with the character of the week.
    The combat is impossible to scale for the wide ranging playerbase of whales with max artifacts vs casuals logging in after 6 months to try the big update. Once everyone reaches max world level, there's no separation. The result is boring mobs that feel like damage sponges, purely to waste your time.
    Eventually you realize that time would be better spent playing a good game. Mihoyo has already caught their share of fish, and the true purpose of the game is to milk them for all their worth. Their delevopers jumped ship to the next game.
    Maybe in 5 years it'll be worth reinstalling to see how the story ends, but I doubt I'll care enough to even do that.

      C2 Furina as well for my Noelle and Navia team. Maybe Booblinde, but I'm not sure if I need her. Why roll for characters that I'll likely bench anyway. I already benched Arlecchino.

        Really? I used her on my overworld team for a couple of months and thought she was great fun.

    They already tried to depict a war in the game, and they failed miserably. I have no faith in them doing the concept justice at all, especially if it involves all the Archons. I can already see all the amazing action and setpieces being contained in one single cutscene, and then the gameplay will be you against three hilichurls.

    Genshin doesn't focus on gameplay. Just collect characters, roam map, stop by for a timed-event and either sit or skip through the over worded story.

      Not happening. Shitters b***hed so hard during Inazuma about overworld difficulty that now every region after increases difficulty based on quantity instead of making the overworld overall harder like it was naturally progressing for the first 3 regions.
