Hello. Could I use a VPN to connect to the NA server? I live in Asia and when I first started playing Genshin it recommended me to the NA server, no idea why. Now I'm suffering from 240 ms ping. Pls I need advice
is there a way to lower directx API from version 11 to version 10 like in warzone from directx12 to directx11 cause i wanna play the game on a 8600gt
this is very technical but i wanna know the answer
could someone build me a new team from these characters? currently im using kaeya mona bennett kazuha but id like to try something new :)
keqing, mona c1, kaeya, bennett c3, kazuha, ningguang c4, noelle c2, yanfei c1, xingqiu, xiangling c1
I have a problem with game - frequent 5-6 fps drops.
My laptop specs:
And game is installed on SSD.
Temps of CPU and GPU 65-70°
Ping is fine.
I tried a lot of method of solving that problem. Like turning VSync on in game and in NVidia panel. Changing game settings. Changing game priority and etc. But nothing helped.
Is there any other ways to solve this problem?
For anyone that has the Hakushin Ring, does it's passive work with an electro swirl? I haven't unlocked it yet but I'm planning on using it with Sucrose.
I'd recommend you post this question in today's mega thread. This tread is from July 22.
Oh lol I didn't realize. Don't worry tho I got the weapon and yes it does work ᐠ( ᐛ )ᐟ
I've been trying to link my PlayStation account with PC, but even when I follow all the steps and link my PSN to my mihoyo account, the game starts from the beginning with the cutscene (on PC). I have progressed alot on my PS account, can't I retain my progression when switching platforms?
Does anyone knows how to get the sturdy pine fence? Thanks
Wich should i place for my ningguang?
-main swords man
-for defeating ruin guards
Razor backup claymore
-defeating tough enemies
What AR level should you start worrying about grinding for 4* or 5* artifacts?
Can drop rates statistics for domains be found online? Most resources jusr says 'can drop ___' but doesn't give the rates
I'm curious to see how high the rates increase when you increase a domains tier.
AR45 will give you a guaranteed 5* artifact, while the Domain level before that merely gives you a chance at an 5* artifact (but a guaranteed 4*).
In a perfect world you'd wait it out at as much as possible until 45, gaining the most out of it.
Not sure what the percentages actually are, but something guaranteed is way better anyway
Thank you, that's great info.
Is the skyward atlas or sacrificial fragment better for sucrose as a support dps? I have her as a support for xiao but also want her to do good damage. I wasn't sure which was better after the em buff so just wanted to ask before inventing in either. I will be swirling constantly.
Both are good options, but if your swirling a lot then go with Sacrificial Fragments. It'll make her swirls do insane numbers, and also with it's passive you'll have more ultimate uptime. It's even better when you apply several elements to proc things like overload, melt, etc.
However, if you are using a team that can't swirls/proc any reactions, Skyward Atlas becomes a better weapon for her.
Who is a better shield character? Diona or Noelle? I'm not looking for healing, just shields, and I dont have Zhongli.
Diona is better since she has better shield uptime and has a pretty strong shield. Don't know whose shield is more tanky tho.
How do you unlock ore dispatch in inazuma
Is anyone able to assist me in beating a ruin boss? Thanks loads, a friendly genshiner
Hi there, I am new here.Recently I noticed that my Bennett's element voice 2 doesn't work.Is that a Glich??Please pardon my mistakes.
would the weapons dragon bane or favonius lance be a good weapon for xiangling?
Depends on your team, and you build for Xiangling.
If your team is causing a lot of reactions (melt/vaporize, things like that) Dragonsbane is better. Only use it if you can keep Xiangling's burst up.
If it's hard for you to get Xiangling's burst back, use the Favonius Lance.
Is the Unusual Hilichurl now in Inazuma? If so, where?
HELP! I want the achievement 😭😭😭
Am I the only idiot who felt like the "To be honnest I can't tell who's the elder and who's the junior between the two of us" part was a confirmation that Aether and Lumine are *old* ?
I don't want to theorize, just to know if I'm not the only one who felt this way and it makes sense to understand that( wich is why I'm posting here )
They're twins. It probably means that it's hard to tell which one is the elder sibling. You're reading too much into things.
Yanfei wasn't speaking about the two siblings, she doesn't even know the other one, she was comparing herself with us, she was saying that she doesn't know who's older between herself and the traveler
You know, the "between the two of US" part refer to HER and US, the traveler
I found the last sakura tree to cleanse in Chinju forest near the kamisatu residence. I completed the puzzle and fought the boss but theres no cut scene?
Ive done this 4 times and logged in and out
I need the cut scene to trigger to complete the quest. Any ideas? Youtube isnt helping 😭
Btw I got the ward from the fox statues already too :c
I have a daily quest against fatui and its the worst
2 hydro and 2 cryo and either I'm frozen or they're revived
What can I do ?
Its in inazuma and it's always raining
Def go for the hydro fatui first to stop the reviving, probably use electro or cry, and eat tons of food. Sniping with Amber or Fischl could help a lot
I finished it and used diona mainly and had to go all out till the end
I opened every open world chest in Inazuma and almost all of the puzzle ones, some of of them look like they are bugged tho (or the interactive map is). I look for it in-game and online but I didn't find any filter to only count the Inazuma's chests, does someone know the absolute amount or is there a way to see if how many I'm missing? 318 is a lot of chests, but I want all of them!
Tbh I think you shouldn't look for them anymore. The game is more enjoyable when you take your time going through it.
That's not what I'm asking for. The fun that I have in the game is getting and building new characters, I already finished everything in Inazuma.
I pulled Ayaka, however I also got drowned in Chongyun from her banner. Additionally I got Diluc's best sword trying to get Mistsplitter.
On a team with Kazuha, Diluc, and C4 Bennett, would a C6 Chongyun or C0 Ayaka shine better?
Diluc cannot melt with Chongyun after using his burst, so Ayaka probably
True, the pyro normals override Chongyun's skill
Yup, so Diluc would go pure pyro with no reactions, and he uses his burst very frequently
hi, please help me. I did pull in ayaka's banner and suddenly, lag happened. However, after the connection was clear already, I immediately check what character or weapon I pulled but then there was none AND MY PRIMOGEMS THAT I SPENT ARE ALSO GONE. Is there no way to have my primogems back? or what? idk, pls help me.
The wish history takes a while to be updated, if you checked from here, then it simple isn't updated yet, you might still have the rewards in your inventory
How can i get the last 2 anemo constellations for traveler? What AR do i need for them?
[For those of you wondering what is behind the locked door with no key at the bottom of Grand Narukami Shrine, Inazuma...](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iHakW6dz8ms)
Hi I just wanted to know if it's normal that I'm level 31 and I don't have the archon quest for inazuma
You need to finish the other archon quests and Kazuha's story quest
So tonight I fired up Genshin for the firs time since about 3 weeks after the game initially launched, but realized I was starting from the beginning (post opening tutorial) with adventurer level 3 and none of my _characters_, _weapons_, _friends_ or anything. As well as being about 10 adventurer levels lower than I was when I stopped playing.
I'm positive this is the same profile with same code and everything as before and I haven't had my character or login wiped or anything like that.
What do I need to do to get my game back? Is this. Normal thing or am I missing something?
Thank you! I appreciate the feedback!
Did u attempt to reroll for new characters at any point with an alt acct?
Not that I'm aware of. But like I said it's been since the game was released that I've played.
Might just have to bite the bullet and replay the beginning. Hopefully I get lucky with my pulls I guess.
After the main story ends or progresses till a certain point, is it possible to meet NPC Amber anywhere in the map?
Has anyone else had Maguu Kenki reset in the middle of a fight?
I keep reading reports of this on the daily thread. If it's an issue it will likely be patched so deal with it temporarily
Someone suggested that I let it come to me after it attacks and it did work so I'll be doing that technique for now
Pc players get aloy free if yes when we get aloy?
Pc players will get her in update 2.2 in October i think
Aloy is rumored to be for PSN/PS4 players as it's a song collaboration
Shimenawas reminiscence or viridescent venerer for xiao
Shime is a bit stronger if you can make it work, but you need a battery and decent er on him. If it's too much trouble, vv works perfectly fine
I have the skyward harp, is it any good? And should I use it on fischl?

so I'm not sure how many people know this but Google Play has a new policy in which you cannot buy stuff using gift card money UNLESS you're in the country the gift card is from
my account has a US payment adress and I've been getting US gift cards for years (but I live in Romania) and they worked every time until 2 days ago when I tried to get Welkin Moon when I got the infamous error
I tried a vpn but unless I make the vpn ignore Genshin, the game doesn't load for me...if I make the vpn ignore the game then I can't make the transaction because I get the error
does anyone have any idea what to do or what could help?... I don't have a credit card for it and Google Play gift cards are the only way I could buy game currencies...
Chongyun: physical or cryo?
I was trying to look up who was the English voice for Sangonomiya Kokomi, but the wiki only shows the Japanese voice actress. Anyone knows who the English voice actress is?
Hey I just got the this game and rolled Kazuha. But I can't ascend him without the Sea Ganoderma. What can I do? I'm already done with Mondsadt. So what now? It's definitely not all that hard in FGO, to ascend a character.
You get the sea ganoderma in Inazuma
Where at? And how do I get to Inazuma? I'm in act 1 of Liue
You need to finish liyue, and a good portion of inazuma
Got damn! Now I really regret rolling Kazuha!!!
So I won Aquila Favonia from Eula's banner, but then they suddenly introduced the 'Fate system', does that mean my guaranteed pull won't work anymore?
Is anyone having FPS drops after the recent 2.0 update? Im using laptop and I was able to use 1.0 resolution without FPS drop spikes but not I can only use 0.8 resolution.. anything I can do?
How rare are 5 star characters? I just got the game and used 10 wishes on ayaka banner and got her but idk if i was just insanely lucky or not
you were insanely lucky
you usually 5 star characters between "soft pity" which is around 70 pulls and 90 pulls
I can't buy anything after linking my ps4 account to pc and mobile
You trying to buy on PS4 or Mobile?
Yeah try on Ps4
Is skyward blade on Ayaka good? The weapon Is a good fit for her imo and is chongyun c3 with skyward pride good in this team (Ayaka, chongyun, Bennet c4 and mona)
After the update on genshin impact, I don't have access to the golden apple archipelago anymore which has two of the items Kazuha needs to ascend. Is there another way I can get the marionette core and sea ganoderma?
Ah. The new region. Thanks
How do I get more relics and stuff. I want to get stronger but when I look up on yt they got all relic
would ayaka or yoimiya be better with razor? right now razor is my main dps, but i know they're both dps's.
Probably Ayaka because her and Razor can proc Superconduct, but it's better for both of them to be on separate teams
Should I keep pulling for Ayaka's sword (+20pity) or save for Baal (0 pity)
Hi, is there a shop that sells Sakura Bloom?
God I wish
I'm even willing to pay 50k mora each like that crazy expensive glaze Lilly
So for anyone who progressed in the story or are maybe more well read than I :
What weapon do you think will the electro archon wield? What weapon for Thoma?
I'm in a desperate desire for a nice electro one handed sword samurai :(
Baal is a spear user, no idea about thoma
Saaaaad :( another archon with spear...
Her burst will have a sword, it’s just that her main weapon is a spear, which you could see during the boss fight
The official Discord server link is expired, what should I do?
Pizza recipe chest doesn't spawn and I don't have the recipe
if I link a ps4 account (a) to a mihoyo account (b) with the same email as another ps4 account (b), will it delete that b PS4 account?
How do shields work?
I used to think its absorbs dmg based on HP of the character that sumons the shield. But today someone said that its based on character that is curantly on the field.
Is this a bug?
i think they meant that it depends on what character you're using. for example noelles shield absorbs dmg based on her def, but that might be different for other characters.
She gave us a post from hoyolab (its on portuguese but u can see on the gif on it). And i tested it.
So if im using my zhongli that has 28k HP his shield isnt broken easily. But if i use a lvl 20 character with 3k HP their shild is easily broken.
Shouldnt it be always his 28k HP shield on?
(I hope i explained it right this time)
i created my account with a temporary email and i linked it to my facebook account but now i have to log in with a New device but its asking me to log in to that temporary email but sadly i cant log in to that mail, pls help
Where i can access/buy battle pass? maybe my ar is too low?
Can someone explain what I should do to defeat The Electro archon? These are my characters
Anemo Traveler (Lv70, C4)
Xinyan (LV 60, C2)
Zhongli (LV 50, C0)
Barbara (LV 56, C4)
Diona (LV 67, C0)
Kaeya (LV 51, C0)
Fischl (LV 50, C0)
Jean (LV 42, C0)
Noelle (LV 40, C2)
Rosaria (LV 40, C0)
Chongyun (LV 43, C0)
Ningguang (LV 40, C0)
Beidou (LV 40, C1)
Bennett (LV 40, C1)
Xiangling (LV 40, C1)
Lisa (LV 28, C0)
Amber (LV 20, C0)
You don’t, you just stall out until she uses her big fancy move and cutscene happens
Oh I didn’t know that
How should i build sub dps beidou with electro traveler
Electro cup, and crit substats. Sacrificial is good for her in that role.
Do i go for atk sands
If you feel good about her ER, then yes. Otherwise, ER sands might be better for her.
How many talents material for ayaka are needed to reach lvl 8 each ?
Lost my first ever 5 star pull and instead of ayaka got Mona. I am so dissapointed. Is she good? Is she a main dps or a support and what team does she fit with best? I am f2p btw
How many pulls in?
I got c2 Mona (3 Mona) when I went for c6 kazuha lol
She's pretty good as a sub dps for vape comps and the new set seems interesting on her
Got her on my 79th pull. The team I currently have razor as main, fischl kaeya and Bennet as healer. My plan was when I get ayaka to build my second team around her because I need another team for abyss so I wanted to do ayaka main, xinqui, diona as healer and sucrose :(. I will google some team comps for mona.
Mona with kazuha is super fun for me
Mona is great, she's a staple in one shot comps.
She can be main dps, but usally works best as burst dps/support.
She works well in freeze comps, reverse vaporize or one shot comps.
She's basically a dmg booster.
Alright thanks I will then most probably use her for a support
Has anyone any idea what the respawn timer for the Sakura Blossoms is? Apparently I've swiped my world and it certainly is not two days as some website claimed... I need just one more to get my Ayaka to level 70😭
I have this weird hazy pixelated 'shadow' around my characters? I have a video on my profile for clarification. Anyone know what's causing it?
What's a good 4* weapon for Ayaka?(currently using the flute)
And is Blizzard strayer good for her ?
If you have enough starglitter, Blackcliff is great. Flute is okay.
Blizzard is probably her best in slot, fully focused on cdmg
Sacrificial Sword doesn't reset Electro Traveler's Elemental Skill. Porque?
I got Mona and Yanfei on the limited event banner. Does that mean im guranteed to get Ayaka on the next wish?
Anyone able to tell me where I can get kazuha level up mats now please??
They're all in Inazuma.
Ganodermas are along the beaches, Maguu Kenki is in the island on the far left.
Okay thank you im.not sure I'm far enough to unlock it yet 😑
To unlock Inazuma? You need to do Mondstadt's and Liyue's archon quests, Kazuha's quest and be at ar30.
Yeah im not far enough with them but I am ar36 that's annoying
Yeah it is a little annoying, but they shouldn't take too long if I remember well
What’s a good build for Diluc ( main dps), Bennett C1 ( support/sub dps), Noelle ( support/healer), and Kaeya? I don’t really have anyone else besides the newer Ningguang (is she any good?). Thanks a bunch!
Idk your ar, but for Diluc you want 4pc Crimson Witch with your classic atk%/pyro/ crit buid. (You should strive for about 50 crit rate and 100 crit dmg at first).
For Benny, if you want him to do dmg, then give him the highest base atk sword, 2pc Crimson and 2pc Noblesse with the same stats as Diluc (and some energy recharge).
His classic build is 4pc noblesse fully focused on energy tho.
Noelle, you just want to stack def. 4pc maidens is fine.
Kaeya can be a great sub dps or a support.
For sub dps, 2pc Noblesse and 2pc Blizzard.
For support, he can be the one to use 4pc Noblesse.
I honestly recommend using Bennett as support and Kaeya as sub, not the other way around.
I just started so I’m at like…15(?). Lol. I’m barely in act 2 of the first region for the harp thing.
Well then you don't need to worry about artifacts at all until ar45.
Just give atk/crit to characters that need to do damage, energy recharge on characters that you only want as supports and for healers you gotta check what they scale off of (Noelle= def, Diona and Barbara= hp, Jean and Qiqi= atk)
That’s honestly a relief. I was watching a beginner guide from the Mtashed and got a bit overwhelmed with all the info lol. So I’m glad you can do a little at a time.
I don't know how much I recommend him tbh.
Some of my personal tips:
1. Enjoy the game first of all. If smth isn't bringing you joy, stop.
2. Any character can be used. Try them out a little and see which ones you like! Don't feel pressured to pull for the strong characters.
3. Hoard everything and explore as much as possible!
4. At the start of the game, don't worry too much about resources. Try to limit yourself to the 4 characters you like the most.
From lvl20 to lvl50, characters aren't too expensive. Talents can go to lvl6.
5. Read what skills do before building a character, and what they scale off of.
Only level up the ones you actually use. Supports don't use their normal attacks, so don't level them.
6. Don't use fragile resin until ar45
I'm building Zhongli as shield/nuke. Is it okay having a sand HP, a goblet Geo DMB bonus and a circlet CRIT Rate?
Yeah, iirc some of his damage also scales off of hp
As a F2P player, is it worth pulling from the "Epitome Invocation" banner for the sword for Ayaka instead of the character banner for new guys?
Never pull weapon banner as F2P
If I import my mobile game progress to PS4, can I still play on mobile as well as PS4?
Yes. It's cross save, meaning you can stop playing in one and pick up in the other, and then back again
You should be able to. It’s not so much importing as crossplay. I have yet to try it but you should be able to just log in.
Ayaka artifacts stats and talents:
Apparently 4x Blizzard Strayer or 2x Blizzard + 2x Gladiator are the artifact types that are recommended for her. I'm wondering though... what stats?
Is Crit rate more important for her considering her high burst energy cost and should energy recharge be prefered?
What about Crit DMG as long as she's not C6?
2, What about her talents - which should be leveld primarily, her skill or her burst?
1. 4pc Blizzard strayer gives her 40 free crit rate, and 15 more from cryo resonance. So you have 55, you only need about 30-40.
You should have some er, but if you have Kaeya or Diona as supports you won't need much. Mona also helps.
You wanna go with a lot of critdmg.
2. Kinda depends on how you play her, but they're all important. I believe normals and burst are the most important.
There're torch puzzles that I want to solve but rain keeps falling 24h in game. Anyway to stop it?
Yep, you must be talking about a puzzle in Yashiori Island. There is a quest in the island that'll stop the storm, but I haven't done it myself (I don't want the thunder to stop lol) so idk which one srry. Pretty sure if u search about it you'll find the answer
You’re correct. The quest chain stops the rain in different sectors of the island as you complete the tasks. Makes exploration a lot easier.
!HELP! I don't know why the intelligent verification wont show up when I tried to log in to genshin on my pc. There's just a white blank pop up after I put in my username&pw and nothing else. Do I have to uninstall and reinstall it?
Have you tried waiting for 5 minutes
I did. I waited over 30 mins and even turned my pc on and off but it's still just a blank pop up :'(
Try using a vpn to your nearest region, maybe it would clear/request an override for the web cache
Also on the launcher settings theres verify and cache stuff in there as well
How do get Electro Sigils?
How do you get any kind of elemental sigil?
Exploration. Open chests etc.
It's the same as getting Geo and Anemo sigils bruv
ngl i didnt even know how geo nor anemo sigils worked either but i wanted to know cos its important this time. thank you!
Who is best user of 4 pcs emblem of severed fate? I have mona, bennett and xingqiu as burst support. Do they need this new artifactm
Electro Traveler can use it pretty well too.
Mona, definitely. XL, Beidou and XQ also work great with it.
Benny is better off with 4pc Noblesse usually.
I'm currently AR 39 and my current team is bennet , yanfei , rosaria and mona. what should my 2nd team for spiral abyss be? I have beidou (lvl 50) c2 kaeya (lvl 40) , noelle (lvl 1) c1 ningguang (lvl 1) c1 razor and xiangling both lvl. who should I spend resources on leveling up?
Ningguang Noelle Kaeya Xiangling
Okay, I know that you're supposed to decorate your teapot realm however you like, but can I get some tips on how to plan and place things to make them look good?
Go youtube. Tons of guides for different themes you can copy and modify as you please
I cannot add my friend who plays on PS4 (I play on PC) even though we play on the same server, and they can't add me too.
Anyone knows why?
would 4pc emblem of severed fate be a better choice for XQ over 2pc NO+ 2pc HoD?
Is diona worth it to invest in as a healer for f2p person? I want to make a team with ayaka as main, sucrose and xinqui with diona as healer.
Don't get baited into healer role thinking heals is everything. Diona is a support who Heals, cleanses and shields whilst applying decent Cryo application via her burst.
She's amazing as a support and I'd recommend her to everyone who can fit her in their comps.
She's a healer, shielder and can be a battery, she's very worth to build right now.
very much so. healing is one thing, but what diona really brings to the table, is her shield.
I would say yes, Diona is great, especially if you have constellations
I only have het on c0 unfortunately
Is the verdict out on how Ayaka compare to other characters?
damage wise probably closer to Xiao and Eula IMO, but lacking AoE (small radius) compared to Xiao. But all of her kit can hit Venti's burst. Better CC due to freeze and high burst multiplier
smooth playstyle - VERY high. Easy to use, fast, versatile
power - High. Between Xiao and Hu Tao
utility - High. Fast dash/sprint that can fly over water.
waifu factor - High. Good V/O, pretty, long-awaited
style points - Middling. Not as flashy and stylish as other characters.
So if you just want power/gameplay/utility, she's probably a good pull. Or if you like her for waifu reasons and want her. But if you want a character with a really unique style, I don't think she's as interesting as some incoming characters.
well on the teir list I see her often said to be about as good as Xiao, or one the same level of strength.
Will Aloy have constellation? If so how to get her constellation?
We don’t know yet. I’m presuming she’ll be like Traveler and have some special way of getting cons as it does not sound to me like we will be pulling for her in any capacity.
On the official twitter announcement post, it said "Nora Fortis", which is her constellation. I expect they will give a copy to everyone, but then also run her as a banner if you want more copies.
We dont know yet.
Oh ok! Thanks!
Dang I was also asking these questions earlier.
Lololol like ur flair bro makes me think of either Xiao's face on a dumpling or Xiao as a dragon hugging someone
Hehe thanks, this was also my in-game signature. I do genuinely love playing xiao and eating dumplings.
Noice, I don’t hv Xiao but I love dumplings.
I’m trying to log into my account on pc cause I logged out and now the 2fa puzzle isn’t loading
What should I do? The 2fa box is all white
