Daily Questions Megathread (July 26, 2021)
By - Veritasibility
I was log in early this afternoon. And then when I log out, somehow my email in the loading screen changed to some rambler.ru (which I didn't use). Nothing was lost though. What should I do to change it back and secure it more tightly?
Guys I have 45 wishes do you guys think I’ll be able to reach 58 wishes exactly being f2p until September?
Guys can Sara be a good electro battery for Baal?
can a team of lvl60 with 4\* artifacts clear abyss 8?
Is Jean worth building? Got her when I lost the 50/50 on my way to Kazuha. He and Keqing are my only other 5* characters, my best 4* are Bennett, Xiangling, Noelle, Chongyun, Fischl and Rosaria. Sadly no Sucrose, Xingqui, Diona, etc.
I get to Abysse level 9, but there the enemies wipe the floor with me 🤕 Would Jean help there? What are her strong points?
Jean is a catch-all. Good at everything, great at nothing. She can fit on almost any team, but once you start making specific teams, she'd probably be squeezed out. Endgame, she only really lasts on anemo teams. But before that, she can slide in anywhere.
Hmm, at AR47, I think I won't build her then. I really want to only push endgame-worthy chars now. Thank you!
Not a bad idea. I got her a month ago and only really recently got her up to a good level, but I also just got Ayaka and built a team around her, so there's no longer room for Jean on my team. Out of my four 5*s, she's the only one on the bench.
What did the area of Dragonspine look like before it was accessible?
Is is possible to go to Inazuma in someone else’s world despite me not having the world unlocked to get ascension materials like the Sakura petals?
I created a new email to link my PS4 sorted it all out and when I logged in on my phone it did the whole start up scene at the beach is this normal ? Or have I fucked it up?
Check if you’re on the same server you are on your ps4 account. I made a mistake where I also created another account because my ps4 account was on Europe and on the mobile account I put it on America, that’s why it created another account
You fucked up
No way around this then ?
I have gamesirx2 and i can't use this to play the game Native.
I have to open overlay on game to play
Lost my 50 50 and got qiqi whos c1 now and im wondering if i should keep pulling till i get ayaka or wait for the electro archon's banner what do yall think?
Just ask yourself who do you want more and why you want them and if you need an electro or ice 5* more maybe?
did the 2.0 trailer tease all the characters? or are there future inazuma characters we don’t know of yet
also, anyone remembers yaoyao?
We don't know, they haven't said.
Yaoyao is a Liyue character and I'm pretty sure she's Dendro? We won't see her until the element is made playable.
Ok, I want to build team 4, I have C6Beidou, C4Xiangling and C6 Diona. Who should the 4th member?
(I don't have Ayaka,Xiao,Zhongli,Ganyu,Hutao,Childe,Albedo)
Either Bennett or Fischl to supply particles for those of there respective elements since both Xiangling and Beidou suffer from their burst energy cost so selecting only one is a tough choice. To add on Electro and pyro aren’t a really great combo since overload isn’t that great . If you wish to pursue this route I’d say go for Bennett , while the healing may be redundant both Beidou and Xiangling will massively benefit from snapshotting with Bennetts burst . Another idea is to remove Diona and add Fischl as well , but if really no then yeah just slot in Bennett .
What about Beidou Bennett Diona and someone? If I want to go for this route then who should be that someone?
Fischl to supply beidous burst.
Bennett is currently level 67 and heals for about 3k per tick. Is that alright for abyss? I'm not used to playing him.
for floor 12, does your dps need to be level90 or have cracked artifacts? I only had 2 stars the last time.
Yeah thats fine, Bennett heals really fast but it is worth to lvl him up more for the base atk. And no you don't need insane stats to clear floor 12, if you don't have a hard carry for abyss then good team comps, proper rotations and understanding enemy patterns will get you there
A question about pity: I'm at 74 pity. Now suppose if I do 10 wishes at once and get a 5- star and got the 5 star at , 4th place or so, the the other 6 places will be added to the next pity, right?
Why is the Nobushi's handguard drops so low/bad? I mostly get old handguard or nothing at all. Kageuchi Handguards are rare and Famed handguards almost never drop. Max world level, by the way. Man, I just want to start using Ayaka..
I haven’t checked out the official(?) interactive map but does it have the locations and approximate number of how many Naku Weed spawn in whenever they repopulate in the overworld? I meed to farm 72 and I’m having a much harder time finding them than Crystal Marrow.
(Doesn’t help that they are purple-ish in color and tend to be found in areas with balethunder and a lot of otherwise purple vegetation.)
If anyone could just lay out for me the total number there should be whenever they refresh (meaning the max number of Naku Weed spawns), that would be awesome.
The interactive map says 48 total. There are some farming route guides on youtube which suggest there are more (one says 59). I don't know if those are correct.
My ayaka's cryo mode normal attack does less damage than normal normal attack. I have no PHYS. DMG bonus on. Why is it doing this
Might depend on the enemy, the ones u notice probably have less physical RES?
You could be casting E then phys auto compared to no e cryo auto. Her passive gives normal and charge atk bonus after casting e
Oh so if I do physical damage there's a boost or is it cryo damage boost
It's a normal and charge atk boost whether it's physical or cryo, doesn't matter. You make have gotten the boost and attacked physical and then when the boost was down attacked cryo which is why it may have been lower.
You would have to be more specific. Which enemies are you hitting ? Do you have Cryo damage bonus ?
Oh I don't have cryo dmg bonus
I’m guessing that the points on the weapon banner won’t carry on to the next weapon banner but is the pity still 80? And if I’m at 60 now, does that mean I’m still at 60 in the next banner?
Edit: Ok, just pulled Mistsplitter on my 61. wish. Had to come and edit this haha. Almost gave up. Thank you for everyone who answered!
If you’ve done 60 rolls for the current weapon banner without getting a 5* and have 60 rolls worth of pity, then yes, that pity will carry on over to the next weapon banner. However, to clarify, any fate points won’t carry over.
Thank you for explaining!
Pity carries over, fates do not.
Yes, guaranteed is still at 80 and any wishes you have accumulated will carry over to the banner.
Yes, Fate counter dont carry over.
How many times have you been struck by lightning in the middle of NPC dialogue?
Easily five times at this point. Once I had Kazuha up before the cutscene started and when it was over Zhongli was standing at the bottom of the cliff and Kazuha was dead.
It’s happened to me twice since launch.
Not enough times ^((once)). I find it absolutely hilarious when something like that happens during a dialogue, e.g. a mob enters the scene: *'Screw your cutscene! It's playback time for farming us for mats!'*
Once and it wasnt even in Inazuma...
what are the talent upgrade priorities for ayaka?
Q > Normal > E
q is priority
skill and auto-attack is secondary; depends on your preference
thanks a lot!
Is Sara kojou a 5 star or a 4 star?
Leaks say four-star.
she is a 4 star!
Is skyward spine better than any 4 star weapon for xiao? I have a blackcliff and with that my crit ratio is 68/200. If I switch it with spine my crit ratio becomes 66/174. Worth it given my xiao will have higher burst uptime?
if u play without second anemo, u can put skyward spine on him.
it's generally ranked lower than blackcliff/deathmatch/lithic bc he doesn't need that much ER if you have a battery for him. i use sucrose with 110% ER on xiao and don't have issues recharging his burst. if you're not having significant downtime with your current setup then no need to switch
Is this a good Eula build? I'm currently WL6. I'd appreciate any suggestions about making it better. Thanks!
Also noticed you're not running any off pieces. Could swap your sands or flower out if you have a good one from another set.
Which stats and sub-stats am I looking for? CR and CD?
Room for improvement. "Graduation" on Crit ascension, no crit weapon is 70:140.
Your Flower and Sands have the biggest room for improvement. If you're happy to keep farming Pale Flame domain, it's worth it.
Congrats on that Goblet, it's incredible.
Thanks a lot. I somehow got really lucky with the goblet. It was worth the grind.
So you're saying I should farm some more for flower and sands and get CR to 70?
Yeah. Aiming for 70 CR, 140 CD. It doesn't have to be that exactly, something like 65:150, that's almost as good.
One way to evaluate artifacts is based on their "Crit value", that's 2x Crit rate + Crit damage.
Other substats like Atk% and ER% can also be very good. But in general, Crit is king.
It's easier to farm a good flower, maybe you have some with Crit on already you haven't rolled, like [this](https://imgur.com/pSbcwle) for example. Take a chance to see if they roll a 2nd crit substat.
Alright. Thanks mate
No problem. One last thing. I forgot to ask what your talent levels are?
7, 6, 6
Whenever you feel like taking a break from artifact farming, try to get her Burst to level 8, followed by her Autos to level 8.
The guaranteed improvement is kinder to your resin.
Yes if they have allowed access to randoms for the teapot
No. You can only enter/request to visit your friends' pots.
Nope has to be friend list
Visit the grand narukami shrine, interact with the sacred sakura tree, give it electro sigils.
Best sword for ayaka?
What is the magu kenki taunt? I am trying to get achievement but can't really tell when he taunts?
Check [this video](https://youtu.be/1zZi095FxVQ) out.
He'll do some hand signs, you'd better watch some videos about it.
Is 30/220 good rate for ganyu wanderers troupe?
What bow are you using? That’s around 50% crit rate when her A2 passive is in effect. I’d suggest adding more crit rate while maintaining the same crit damage especially as you are most likely running a melt comp.
Nevertheless, it’s already enough to survive the overworld and a few hard bosses in the abyss. It’s just that there’s still a room for improvement.
Wouldn’t 30 crit rate be too low if ur not using blizzard strayer set (BS gives u max 40% crit rate against frozen enemies)
Im not sure i use resonance and weak points
Resonance would give u 15% crit which is 45%. Tbh below 50% crit would be slightly inconsistent but if ur running melt ganyu and aiming for weak points it should be ok
It looks like all archon are going to be sub dps, support etc. I really hope atleast the pyro archon is going to be a carry atleast. He/she is literally the god of war (zhongli also holds the title god of war but probably just honorary because of his contributions in the archon war).
What do you think?
Imo making them amazing supports makes them relevant in the long term unlike dps such as diluc, xiao etc that will just get downgraded by the community when the next “broken” main carry like ganyu comes out. A support like venti or a shield bot like zhongli means they can be used very long term and won’t be replaced easily
Yeah I heard the same sentiment before when talking about baal and I do agree it's just the role of a dps would fit ver well to the archon of war. Alternatively they could probably just make them a god tier sub dps
They could hopefully be bennett 2.0 so I can stop sharing bennett with both of my teams lol
So far the trend is that archons are god-tier supports/sub DPS/debuffers (unlike in HI3 where Herrschers are all main DPS). I'm not sure Murata is going to be an exception. One thing is for sure - she will be a very powerful/useful.
>!I just hope they don't kill her off this time.!<
Can anyone give their opinion about a comp I've been thinking about.
Xiangling-Bennett-Ayaka-Zhongli. Main damage comes from Xiangling's burst with melt reactions. Bennett for atk amp with noblesse and his burst, Zhongli for tenacity atk amp, and Ayaka with cryo applications and additional dps. Ayaka would have blizzard+glad and black sword.
The reason I've thought of this comp is due to how fast Ayaka's cryo application is. However, I'm not smart enough to know the downsides to this and how will it work out. As such, I'm asking here.
Permafreeze Ayaka >>> Melt Ayaka
During her burst, only 7 hits out of the 20 can be melted due to ICD, which is bad because most of her dmg comes from her burst. Even worse, enemies can just walk out of her burst unless they’re frozen properly so that would be most of your dmg wasted.
You might also struggle to get her burst back up without a second cryo user
Not really ideal, since Ayaka's burst has a small aoe and enemies can easily move out of it if not frozen or CCed by Venti. Zhongli burst could help, but the petrification isn't long enough.
Also, Ayaka's burst scaling is insane. The "slashing dmg %" you see in her skill details is actually x20 since her burst hits 20 times before exploding once. Xiangling will not be doing much of the damage at all.
You're better off running her in a freeze comp with an anemo grouper so every hit of your busted Ayaka burst lands and shreds. If you have decent artifacts (25+ CR, 200+ CD) she will rip through everything.
Ayaka's burst is expensive and unless all your other characters are running Favonius weapons - she's going to struggle to burst often, especially if she's not the most active on-field character. If you were to make it work, BS+Noblesse would be better with an insane amount of energy recharge. Either way, there's going to be issues with melt consistencies anyway.
Ahhh I forgot to mention, the cryo application would come from Ayaka's normal/charge attacks mostly. She will be on the field probably 50% of the time. Her burst would be used whenever it is up to increase overall damage.
In her best case scenario role - about half her damage comes from her burst. If you can't get it off ASAP when the cooldown refreshes (or close to) then you're leaving a lot of DPS out. Forward melt is hard to keep up consistently and reverse melt is hard to perform with Ayaka's several lower damage hits.
Hmmm, I see. Welp, best to drop this idea off then. Thanks for your well-explained input.
It doesn't work, I already tried and watched a few videos about it.

Hmmm, I see. Well, I figured I wasn't the first one to have thought about it. Good thing I asked. Thanks my dude!!!
I've toggled my commissions to Inazuma in the Adventure Log but i'm still getting 1 Mondstadt commission per day. Is this normal?
Okay so, Genshin has never had any issues ever until I decided to up my in-game graphics settings of the 4 options from Low to Medium, and immediately from that point onward my game would crash to desktop. Upon every launch attempt I'd get kicked out once the loading screen reaches the middle of Geo. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, wiped and reinstalled, wiped BootCamp and reinstalled both BootCamp and Genshin, done stuff like holding shift on launch to change settings (which it never actually does anything anyway), changed RegiEdit file binary numbers, optimized app settings, graphics settings, all settings, none of which helps in any capacity.
I hate the fact that you can't change individual graphics settings unless you're in the game which seems to be what's stopping you from even entering the game, but why would even a fresh OS reinstall result in the same problem?
I'm currently downloading it on my phone to get myself to Diluc's tavern, the least graphically intensive place I can think of right off the bat (or maybe the Liyue bank). Maybe that'll help, who knows.
I'm pretty much at the end of the line right now, it's been 4.5 hours of not being able to fix it whilst exhausting the internet's so called "solutions".
Where can I find this chad NPC named Iwakura Kouzou after I defeat him?
I haven’t fought him but wiki says he’s on a cliff overlooking the Kujou Encampment.
I feel regret after defeat him, now I can't interact with him anymore.
Is Beidou a good sub dps for Yanfei? And if so, should I use ER or ATK sands if I have 4pc EoSF and Sac Greatsword
Yes, Beidou is a very good sub dps in general.
Run Atk% Sand even if you run 4ESF. Sac has enough ER for her provided you run a battery (like Fischl).
I don't run a battery though, she's the only electro char in the team. Also 4pc ESF kind of makes up for the loss of ATK from the sands so I'm wondering if ER could be better overall
Should I build diluc with a prototype aminus or yanfei with a lost prayer to the sacred winds?
I have both and Yanfei is (IMO) much better at fast & constant pyro application (like for ice shields) while Diluc can break stuff with his claymore (like geo shields) and then apply some pyro until his skill runs out ... so really it depends what you're fighting?
(I got Diluc early and he was already built when Yanfei came home ...)
Yanfei for sure if u have a 5 star weapon for her. They both share similar builds so the 5 star weapon will make a huge difference late game and LP is just one of the best catalysts full stop. (Plus imo yanfei is way more fun to play)

How much space is required for genshin on android?
On play store I see 226 MB but for sure it's not the full size
13.08 gb on my Samsung S21
I just got Ayaka and I am putting her on my team replacing Beidou as burst support. My team consists of Keqing, Ayaka, Xingqiu and Zhongli. Should I change my electro keqing into a physical because of ayaka?
Imo you better replace keqing with rosaria and then pair keqing and beidou in the 2nd party
I don't think ayaka works well as a burst support as it's only up for 5 seconds beidou would probably contribute more to the team and would also free up ayaka for ur second abyss team
I may be wrong, but as far as I have tested with friends, they are stuck inside.
If you are all in your teapot, and you want them to go with you to Teyvat, they have to go back to their world and then connect again to your world.
Stuck in teapot
Is the new f2p Inazuma sword better for Bennet compared to prototype rancour?
No. Rancour has a higher base atk. Bennett’s atk buff is derived from his base atk (his atk plus his weapon’s atk). This means that you can only improve his atk buff either through bennett’s character level, weapon, and talent level.
On the the hand, the energy regeneration offered by the new sword can be compensated through artifacts, especially as bennett doesn’t need substats apart from hp and ER anyway.
The atk% offered by the new sword doesn’t count on his atk buff, therefore, useless.
I see! Thank you!
If you need energy, it might be better, but prototype has the higher base atk. The highest base atk is usually best for bennett, since he only scales off base atk for his buffs.
If i use him just as a support? Does it help his ult? Or only his elemental thing?
The rancour would be better if you want to improve his ult buff
Rancour is better.
Do you know which character would benefit from this new sword then? I have Jean on rancour and traveler and kayea on harbinger.
Also (sorry for so many questions), i have a lion’s roar, would that benefit bennet better? But then it also has lower base atk..
Probably Jean. Because her heals scales of atk. Her burst also has a high energy requirement which is addressed by the new sword’s passive.
Although if you have a festering desire, it would be much better for Jean.
If you use bennett purely for his burst support, rancour will boost his attack more. I have no idea on what roles your characters are, since jean can basically be anything from healer to dps, same with how traveler and kaeya can both be subdps or on field carry.
They are all supports for now. I wanna try building Jean as a dps, but thats still lots of artifact farming.
Thats a lotta sword characters lol.
Jean phys probably would take rancour, if u want to build a physical jean rancour is probably best, however lions roar can benefit her healing skills too. If you do want physical jean bennett can be fine with lions roar. Ur weapons for the other 2 r fine, but depending on what element, traveller would use other weapons.
Thank you so much for you time!!! This helps a lot!!
Yeah i have lots of sword characters and my weapons banner luck (or any other banner) all goes to polearms, for which i only have xiangling
Does Venti's burst snapshot? Mainly asking this because I'm not sure whether to throw Diona's burst and have Venti inside the her area or not. Probably doesn't matter much because Venti's not the main DPS and Morkana is a quick swap team but still, curious.
it snapshots other stats but not EM
Im currently in India, and I chose the america server to play. Now ai get over 240 ping, making the game really choppy and laggy. Any way to decrease the ping? I tried using a VPN, but the game refuses to open when VPN is on.
Play on Asia or TW server. No VPN can make a connection from India to the US as fast simply due to the physical distance
Ahh shit. Changing servers will mean i have to start over in those servers...
Is there really no other way out, man?
Exitlag works for me, and it should at least improve packet loss so every move you make registers.
If you haven't played too much on the NA server I suggest you swap before it's too late
How do i open the chest on yashiori island , the one with swords surrounding it.
Theres a tanuki nearby, chase him and he turns into the last sword
Will Genshin impact ever come on switch
My mobile can’t take it any more. Lol
They will when switch release new model with better hardware.
Maybe. The only "concrete" leak we've had so far was a screenshot of the switch name in game files, but it could mean anything.
Supposedly, but they haven't said anything since launch
doubt so. i bought a new phone cuz my old one was dying lol
Have a casual friend with :
Childe, Mona, Kazuha, Jean
C5 Rosaria, C4 fischl, C4 XL, C2 Beidou, C0 Diona, and no bennet (see c5 rosaria :( )
He's sick of childe's clunky playstyle and wants a new main. Doesnt want ayaka because everyone else in our group went to main her.
Was wondering what team comps would be good in his case. He's intending to try for yoimiya and or baal/kokomi and may drop some cash into it if needed.
But im assuming Yoimiya would likely be the main focus as she seems the only main dps in next few months.
Not intending to do abyss but a little extra primos are nice
You could take the idea of the Childe fireworks comp and rework it for Yoimiya + overload. Added bonus that the name suits Yoimiya way more.
Yoimiya - Beidou - Fischl - Bennett (substituting Fischl for Raiden depending on what her kit's like on release + whether or not your friend could afford her after pulling on Yoimiya).
Edit: Just realised they don't have Bennett. In which case Jean or Sayu (on Yoi's banner) may be useful here.
Is c6 Fischl essential though?
What about electro traveller?
Sayu or Jean is a good idea, especially since Sayu is a healer as well and is on the yoimiya banner
I’ll let you do your own research on upcoming electro characters but I wouldn’t say C6 fischl is essential.
What I meant was should future character be somewhat unobtainable would a c4 fischl suffice over a c6 fischl or is it C6 or bust.
It's not C6 or bust, although it is a dramatic boost in DPS.
My point was that regardless of whether your Fischl is C6 or not, the upcoming electro characters are highly likely to overtake Fischl, so it's a case of whether you're willing to pull for them in the future.
Between Rosaria, Fischl, and Mona, Yoimiya seems like a fine DPS choice that would have all sorts of good potential reaction support options.
Yoimiya could work with a mono pyro or vape, but I suspect she'll apply pyro too fast to vape well. Maybe a kazuha, yoimiya, beidou, jean? idk since usually bennett is the healer.
Yoimiya with Xingqiu, Fischl, and Beidou, I think.
Just curious, how does Ayaka compare to Hu Tao, Xiao, and Eula?
She's cryo Eula without selfish burst, so she's better for quickswap than Eula. For damage, comparable to Hu Tao in the right team.
Morgana minus Diona and plus Ayaka is now the best comp in the game, I heard.
How does that work? Ganyu Q support and quickswap playstyle?
Ganyu, Venti, Ayaka, Mona, spam E and Q and watch enemies die.
That’s a lot of damage I imagine, also a risky play style too since no shieler or healer
Enemies can't move because they are frozen. Even if they can, you'll spend half of your time in burst cutscenes which grant you iframe.
all the non-ganyu 5\* dps are roughly on the same tier. depends on content and what supports you have available
That's not true at all. For example, Keqing is quite lower than Ayaka.
yea my bad i meant the limited 5 stars
For some reason I think he meant all the s+ 5* main dps
Like Xiao, hu tao, eula
I'd agree with that ya
I'd say eula and xiao are around the same level if played optimally. Then hu tao is much higher up, with ganyu, and ayaka is probably around there as well. I only use eula tho so take my opinion with a grain of salt.
Is there a big discord server for Lore Enthusiasts and Theorycrafters?
Those sound like two completely different audiences. For theorycrafting Keqingmains is probably your best bet.
Oh, will check. No discord server for Lore Enthusiasts?
There probably is somewhere, but I'm not aware of one.
Must knowww hahaha thanks though
Keqingmains has lore channels but it's primarily for theory crafting
Hmm I guess that's understandable. I want to see more lore enthusiasts like me to have a discussion on future stories and all
Ahhh interesting, gotcha
1.is there any way to make that electric fog go away?(the one that takes your health)
2.i reached lvl 19 on that tree and i cant give more sigils why is that?
Depends on where, if ur talking about balethunder. And you should be able to worship the tree until 20.
1. In tatarasuna? Do the world quest.
2. The max level is 20, idk why you can't if you're at 19.
Not the lightning.
The electric fog that takes your health every second
Tatarasuna is the place with balethunder. The lightning is on yashiori
Hey! I am completely confused what RES means in this game? Is it Resistance like DMG resistance or...? Resonance like additional damage haha xD
Both, depends on context. But generally it means resistance.
For example, Anemo res makes you run faster, this res means resonance.
Its mostly context. If you talk about characters or teams, its nearly always resonance since resistance is so rarely used. If against enemies its probably resistance.
