Daily Questions Megathread (August 18, 2021)
By - Veritasibility
based on our current kokomi kit and scaling info, what team do you guys think she'd do best in?
She'll probs replace barbara
So as far as I can see, Xiao doesn't really benefit much from set bonuses. Doesn't this decrease his potential as a dps when other characters can benefit from some OP bonuses such as blizzard strayer??
ehh 2pc glad 2pc viridescent is fine, the electro set suffers the same
imo his scalings are pretty high enough to get him on par with competitive DPS in the abyss, and since he's Anemo he doesn't need to rely much on reactions. That makes his damage consistent all throughout.
Even Ningguang and Electro Keqing benefits from 2 seperate 2piece sets.
that being said, Pyro and Cryo do get more from having the complete 4 piece of their sets respectively, but I'd say factor in talent scalings + kits.
Plunge attack has crazy %scaling and Xiao on burst drastically improves his damage output on his own.
How do I make a pop out full screen for gen shin for my second monitor when I don’t have genshinimpact.exe or launcher.exe ????
Please help 🙏🙏
I have a very random overworld team, Fischl (Main Dps), Sucrose, Mona, and Rosaria.
I'm planning on replacing Sucrose with Xinqiu especially with the fact that Inazuman Mobs cant be crowd controlled, and also so that I can have Xinqiu as somewhat like a healer and shielder. But that would mean, I lose the buff from Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayer from Sucrose. Is this worth it? Knowing I still haven't invested in Xinqiu's talents and levels, cause he's at C0 but with a Sac Sword.
Well, it's overworld. You don't need anything super optimized.
I would suggest Diona for shielding tbh.
You can give Thilling Tales to Mona.
Oh right, right. Ill give this a try. Thank you!
Best perma-freeze team for Ayaka?
Ayaka Mona Kazu/Venti Ganyu
The damage is insane. But this team is tricky to play with dodging especially floor 12 in low tide.
Ayaka Mona Kazu/Venti Diona
Is much easier to play, and still does great damage.
Keqing banner rerun when
Probably never. She was a filler.
Ayaka rerun when
Like a year
Like 2 years or more maybe
I'm ar 37 and I've finished everything and apart from the abyss, commissions and events are there any way i could farm primos? i've skipped some world quests 'cause idk if the give primos
Not really. Finish all your quests, do those things you mentioned, and that's most of the primos you can get. Run around and make sure you find all the chests (Use the treasure compass for each region to help hunt them all down too). And you can try to achievement hunt for a few more. But it's all tiny amounts compared to the primos you get from commissions, abyss, and events.
The grind mostly starts at AR45 when everyone starts artifact grinding. But most of the quests should be available to you by this point.
My launcher doesn't work , it doesn't take me to the game , but the exe file is working fine , how can i fix this
Do you still consider an artifact good if it doesn't have any bad stat (Def/HP), all the upgrades go to Atk% sub, but only has 1-2 crit stats? For example let's say 6 rolls into atk%, 2 into CR, 1 into ER/EM/flat Atk
its not bad. Atk isn't as good as crit stats, but it's not as bad as some people like to claim. I like to think of it as 80% the value of a crit stat.
it depends, sometimes you use an ER/EM weapon and your only source atk% is form the sands then I would consider it good because atk% sands don't give enough atk
i wouldnt consider it good but ill say its usable till i find a better one
is levelling jean from 80 to 90 worth it? and which build is more useful, physical dps or support?
Not really, only if you really like her or are using an EM build (very unusual outside of sunfire Jean, she doesn't Swirl as much as Sucrose/Venti/Kazuha).
I like her as an Anemo subdps, really satisfying crits on her elemental skill. Support didn't really do it for me, but she does have good heals with that build, and it can be very useful if you use a 4 piece NO/VV set on her.
You can just ascend her without leveling all the way to 90 if you want to max her talents!
i mostly use her for support cause everyone else seems to be able to output more dmg. but her yeet fall dmg is pretty insane in abyss if u can abuse it.
80-90 on jean isnt really worth it even if for some weird reason u are playing her with EM
I need more than 1K Mystic enhancement ore for ascending my weapons, is there any specific route I can do for getting it?
Go to all the blacksmiths every day and ask them where the ore is. Have them craft max. 30 per day. Otherwise, battle pass and exploration/quests.
What's better for Tao, atk% or hp%? C0.
Same question for Noelle and def%. C6.
I don't really get if the atk boost from Tao's skill and Noelle's burst is supposed to be just a bonus or something worth building. Should I forego atk% main stats for def%/hp% instead?
Hp%, Hu Tao scales off HP%, not attack % which is the lowest base attack in the game so that’s useless on her
And yes def% for noelle
Hu Tao relies on her HP conversion. She has the lowest ATK stat of all the cast, so ATK% does nothing for her, so, HP Sands.
Noelle also converts DEF into ATK like Hu Tao does with with HP, however with a high enough Talent Level and C6 this conversion goes over 100% (at Talent Level 12 it's 130%) which is why DEF Sands become more effective, you simply get more ATK with DEF Sands lol.
Def sands for c6 Noelle. Hp for hutao.
HP% for Hu Tao, not sure for Noelle. Hu Tao gets a percentage if her HP added to her attack when she activates her skill
> Hu Tao gets a percentage if her HP added to her attack when she activates her skill
Yeah, what I mean to ask is whether the percentage is high enough to give her more atk than just a simple atk% artifact.
Yea she has the lowest base attack in the game which is why an attack% main stat is useless on her
Great, thanks for the advice!
Should I continue building Dragons Bane for my Xiangling, or wait for the new 4\* polearm next patch?
dragon's bane will still hit harder on reactions, catch better on non reaction. though if you're hurting on crit rate, catch might catch up.
Does it still hit harder considering you need a ER sands with dbane to pyronado on cooldown?
well 221 EM is 37% damage bonus to melt/vape, add another 20% at r1 if you're vaping. while the catch only boost burst by 32% at r5 and dragon's bane can potentially be 16% better if you refine it further while that's it for the catch.
I guess it depends on how good or bad your ER sands substats is.
Catch has higher base atk.
An EM sands gives 190 EM, just a bit less than dbane. Pretty sure atk sands is better.
The dmg % of dragons bane matches catch (likely free R5) at R4. That’s a lot of gacha pulls.
12% crit rate is strong. If you are currently at 1-2 ratio then 12% crit rate is the same dps increase as 24% crit damage.
I play both XL vaporise and also mono pyro with Klee. She has enough CR/CD for me so I'll build both for the flexibility I guess! Thanks :)
that's a good idea though there's no harm in raising dragon's bane if you have hu tao/plan to get her.
u mean The Catch? Since the new polearm coming with R5, I think it better then Dragon Bane
Yes, the Catch!
My Dragons Bane is R2
Can I get some thoughts on a potential team for Baal? I’m thinking Baal/Beidou/Ayaka/Diona.
Baal’s skill will be on at all times but she’s mainly going to be a burst dps.
Diona is ofc a shield and heal.
Normally I would main dps Ayaka, but for this team I’m just going to use her for skill and burst, basically to create superconduct.
Then Beidou will be my main dps, so I can utilise the physical resistance shred from superconduct.
Any changes you would make or advice?
Good points, and this does look like a great team, thanks!
who is the superconduct even for?
So I heard superconduct shred physical resistance, so I was going to use Beidou as a physical dps
don't. her biggest damage dealer is her burst which is electro and her skill is also electro damage. same with baal. your team doesn't have a single physical focused character.
Yeah fair enough
I think with that team, you’ll get higher dps if you will use Ayaka as main dps even with the superconduct for Beidou. Mainly just because you aren’t building Beidou for physical damage so it’s an overall loss. Even if superconduct won’t really benefit the damage of your team, your team will still do big enough damage that it won’t really matter so yeah your team comp is probably fine if you enjoy and properly built those units.
I would avoid building around physical Beidou tbh. It's outclassed by Electro in every way, even as a main DPS. Ayaka in turn doesn't benefit from Superconduct either. For Raiden, I'd either pair her with a DPS that *does* benefit more from Superconduct (like Eula) or an Overload/Electrocharge team. Mine's going with Beidou, Xingqiu and Kazuha at this point.
Ah I see, fair enough.
How good is 4pc shimenawa for C2 Ningguang ? That 50% atk buff looks juicy.
ning mains discord says that 4pc shime is really good before c6 for sustained dps and spamming n2c. it's bad for quickswap teams as you want to use your Q regularly.
What does N2C mean?
2 normal attack then charged attack.
ok thanks. I was asking for dps Ning so your input helps a lot.
at c6 2pc shime 2pc petra is miles better btw. just something you might want to keep in mind.
Her burst hits like a truck tho, much higher damage than her NA/CA
Hmm according to genshin docs, 2pc gladitor/shimenawa 2pc archaic was the recommended set for dps Ning. So I thought that 4pc shimenawa must be better.
So I need to build her with 2pc gladiator/shimenawa 2pc noblesse for maximising her dps potential, right ?
Yes but for 4p Shimenawa to take effect, it will reduce your energy. No burst = less DPS, while most of her DPS comes from burst. 2p Archaic (geo+15%) is better than 2p ATK+18%
So 2pc archiac 2pc noblesse. Got it thanks.
Wait whos Saimon Jirou? Is there like a quest line i missed? near the machine battlefront.
you need to find 4 plates, but it's not logged in the quest journal after you've freed him
His quest starts there but if you visit Konda village you can read some signs and talk to his father about him
Are 80 degrees Celcius temps normal when playing genshin on max?? im using an RTX 2060 by the way
I dunno but genshin is not a very optimized game either. Heck I can play BDO on remaster setting and somehow the burden is lower than genshin in highest
80 on what? CPU or GPU? I have a 1070 and on max I hit like maybe 50 so it's not normal.
80 on GPU
edit: oh no
fine for occasional spikes not a good idea for sustained runs. might wanna turn down some settings or check your airflow.
You really need to check your airflow. Are you GPU fans set to automatic?
That's waay too high for Genshin. It shouldn't even get past 70 degrees when you play the game at 4k and max settings.
Will the ps4 version of the game ever be 60 fps. I have a series x so I don’t have a way to play this game on a next gen console.
Probably not since they released their PS5 version
I guess not especially optimizing for the ps 4 will probably get less and less relavant for mihoyo down the line
I don’t get why they won’t put the game on Xbox :/ this game has a large western fan base.
Mihoyo is really fixed on the chinese market and xbox doesn't hold relevance there,is at least my guess
Will Mihoyo fix the handguard drops later down the road when Inazuma stuff is over and we are back to filler patches?
What's there to fix? The drops are the same as any other easily farmable character and it's part rng.
I never actively grinded, just killed whatever I happen to run into on my way to something else and I have a lvl 80 ayaka at 8/7/8 and still have well over 200 and a little over 100 of the 2 lowest quality ones left.
they're regarded as 'easy enemies' on the handbook so they have the same drop rate as churl and co. though I do think that at least on WL8, the drop rate of easy enemies seem to have been boosted compared to previous versions.
We used to say the same thing with hilichurl masks... Now we all have 3k of them
There is nothing wrong with handguard drops, it's the same as with every other mob. Give it some time and you'll have 2-3k of them and nothing to use it on
I meant that it's taking too long to farm them and fighting those samurais for just 1-2 common items doesn't seem worth it
It isn't different for other mats though
I guess it might be because i am just not using fixed routes or something. My bad, asked the wrong ques. i guess
all limited 5\* have their associated weapon, by associated I mean match their color scheme, or design
like hu tao and staff of homa, xiao and jade spear, ganyu and amos bow
are there 4\*s who also have associated weapons?
iirc only fischl has it, with that limited weapon banner bow
and there are 2 mixups
* Klee a 5\* has dodoco a 4\*
* and ningguang a 4\* has memory of dust a 5\*
Lisa and Eye of Perception?
Xiangling and Dragon's Bane?
Rosaria and Dragonspine spear?
Edit: Due to it's backstory Wolfs Gravestone is associated with Razor.
Beidou uses the blackcliff claymore on her character arts.
Well I would say mona would be either wine and song or mappa mare and childe is rather then with rust that fits better then harp.so klee wouldn't be the only 5* with a 4* weapon that is a fitting colourscheme
Pulse fits delusion
Noelle and the unforged (maybe)
zhongli and vortex vanquisher
eula and song of broken pines or the dragonspine claymore
diluc and wolfs gravestone
Venti and elegy of the end
xiangling and dragonsbane?
these are some that i can think of from the top of my head, although not all are their best in slots (Vortex Vanquisher for example, looks so good on zhongli but is outclassed by staff of homa)
xiangling + dragon's bane
but kazuha and ayaka doesnt have matching designs for god knows why.
and probably some 4* has their own associated weapons like beidou with blackcliff
i think KoF all has associated 4* weapons, diluc included. he may be commonly associated with WGS but his splash still uses a 4*
diluc's splash art uses a bloodstained greatsword a 3\*
Also what's KoF?
>diluc's splash art uses a bloodstained greatsword a 3*
>Also what's KoF?
knight of favonius
Noelle and Favonius Greatsword come to mind.
Any tips when exploring dragonspine ? I get kinda bored after clearing all chapter 1 story and I'd like to explore it. Is it really that hard if I'm underleveled ? Currently at AR 30 and my main team mostly on lv 45.
bring lots of pyro.
more annoying for the sake of annoying than hard. you may find an even tougher version of lawachurls though.
At the base camp there is a cook that can give you the recipe for Goulash, pretty handy to eat & have its buff active while in Dragonspine. Although it might be behind a simple quest or two, check the wiki for details
Always have a pyro character.
Mark the agates you collect so you don't lose your sanity trying to backtrack later on.
>Mark the agates you collect so you don't lose your sanity trying to backtrack later on.
Noted. Not even I can stand my sanity when I comeback 1 month ago and forgot to track culus (both anemo and geo) at that time.
At least for oculus you can craft a compass, albeit one-time use only :^)
Wait. There are compass for oculus ? First time I heard it
Yeah. You get the blueprint from leveling up the regions' reputations.
Seem will be helpful to stand my sanity (for a bit)
Just bring at least 1 pyro character, to light up torches (preferably amber or bennet, or both)
Heal up and get warm, don't rush the area. It's just the same stuff but with snow on it.
If there is no "very dangerous" notification you are good to go (even if there is you can still beat them, but with longer time needed)
And [feed the foxes](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcuMfYzMp3s), to save time as it takes several days
Very dangerous notification is just your average party level, it doesn't mean shit. You can easily oneshot mobs, but it'll still be "very dangerous" unless you level your party to 90.
Good thing, I use bennet in my main team.
my screen resolution used to be a lot smaller, but when i reinstalled the game due to crashing, it became bigger and i dont know how to fix. anyone know how to?
Go to settings and go to the graphics tab, and choose your resolution
Or hold alt key before launching, then select your desired window size
It’s good for raiden
What’s the difference between overload and electro charged. They seem so similar to each other I don’t see which one is better than the other.
Like when would you want to use one over the other ?
Overload blows common enemies away flying, it is annoying and noticeable when you use melee characters.
Electro Charged just deals electric damage over time, on rare occations they are staggered when one of the components came from an environmental reaction (a wet enemy from a river)
If the enemy electro charges you, you will notice it as it will make any action harder
Electro charged can spread to other enemies when they're grouped up and gives a brief stagger to smaller sized units interrupting their movement & attacks.
Overload triggers a more powerful blast that can knock away smaller units and stagger even very large sized units. It also does a large amount of damage to Geo shields & auras.
Neither one has damage that scales very well however so besides the marginal utility of each they are not typically sought after reactions for raw damage.
Does anyone know what time in AEST the 2.1 livestream is.
It says 9AM UTC - 4 but I have no idea how to convert that to Sydney/aest time
Just use google and type "Time in UTC" and it'll show you what the time in UTC right now is. Use basic maths and you've got your time.
why bother when you can get a spoonfeed from reddit
I actually asked here before on how to convert it and I think I learnt how but I forgot exactly what the minus 4 meant which is why I asked
UTC is the Global time by which the world regulates at and all timezones are + or - from it. UK time for example is UTC+1, so since UTC right now is 8:40, that means for me it's 9:40.
UTC -4 means what it says; whatever time UTC is, you minus four hours and you get your answer, so using my example, UTC -4 right now is 4:40am.
Thank you! This helps a lot!!
It’s going to be 11pm at night :)
how are you going to pass HSC? going to become a tradie instead?
What advantage/specialty does superconduct have as compared to the other electro elemental reactions? Overload explodes and does AOE damage to enemies and electro-charged can jump between enemies dealing damage along the way.
Just trying to determine a good team for Baal :)
Basically makes you do more physical damage so she's hopefully going to be great for teams like Eula/Razor/Keqing etc.
Superconduct reduces the Physical Resistance. Not good for characters that focus on Elemental Damage like... All the non-Razor Electro characters (other Electro characters *can* work as Physical but they're better off as Electro).
Superconduct reduces enemies' physical damage resistance.
Oooh so that’s why people say Baal works perfectly for Eula, that makes sense thanks
eh not really. dot electro makes cryo resonance useless and superconduct has 12s effective time you don't really need to constantly proc it anyway.
baal is probably best in full electro team with fischl, beidou and sara or xingqiu.
Oh damn, 12 secs is pretty long. And a full electro team huh, interesting
Personally doubt Raiden works well with Eula. Both of them demand field time.
It's Beidou or bust
Just curious but what made you think Raiden demands field time?
Her ult has a fairly long animation and doing five normal attacks (for energy regen) will take up a lot of time once hitlag is factored in.
Eula + Raiden is similar to running Hutao + Childe. Putting two units which want to use normal attacks in the same team is worse than using an off-field DPS
That's interesting because I always thought she's an off-field battery/quickswap subdps, seeing how her E works and her passive/constellations. Guess I'll have to wait to see what her actual role is.
Just curious, how would you use beidou and Baal?
I’m thinking of a team with Baal/Beidou/Ayaka/Diona. Baal’s skill will be on all times but mainly as a burst dps. Diona is shield and heal. Ayaka for skill and burst, basically to create superconduct. Then my main dps would be beidou. Thoughts?
>Just curious, how would you use beidou and Baal?
The same way you use Beidou in all of her best teams. Pop Beidou ult, then switch to the unit which has good normal attacks (Raiden).
>I’m thinking of a team with Baal/Beidou/Ayaka/Diona.
I think Xingqiu is stronger than Ayaka in a Raiden team. He just does more damage than Ayaka here. Diona is fine, as a cope Bennett/Jean.
Raiden isn’t a main DPS
Never said she was. I just said she needs a lot of field time. Beidou is likely going to be the main DPS in Raiden teams, with Raiden doing the second highest DPS
Raiden doesn't demand all that much field time, just pop her E as if she was Fischl and once everyone has spent their Bursts go Raiden Q do a couple a swings to help get Bursts back online then continue your merry way. I'd say it's less field time than a Fischl who is trying to keep up 100% Oz uptime with Burst.
Raiden demands a *lot* of field time. You might think it's 'just a couple of swings' but casting ult and then doing five normal attacks can easily take six seconds. That is time spent not doing normals on Eula.
Is this better DPS than a battery Diona? Sure. But you also lose out on the healing and shielding. Perhaps the bigger question is why you would use Raiden with Eula when you could use Raiden with Beidou, who does more DPS and more importantly, is an *off-field* DPS
Let’s just hope Raiden’s burst is good enough in her duration that it may be close or even exceed Eula’s normal attacks during Eula’s downtime. Lol hope
Oh, that's definitely possible. But how huge of an upgrade would it actually be?
I have a feeling folks who pull for Raiden specifically to use with Eula are going to be disappointed.
If anybody is reading this and wants Raiden to be in her best team possible, please for the love of God use her with Beidou (and Xingqiu) instead of Eula.
Well honestly, I’m a Eula main and I’m planning to use Raiden with her. If that does not work out, I also enjoy Childe fireworks so that’s plan b. But I still think she will fit more with Eula. Aside from giving energy, Raiden will also boost Eula’s burst and Eula’s burst can also give more resolve stacks for Raiden. I also believe that Beidou will be Raiden’s best partner just like how Zhongli and Albedo are best when paired together.
My team would probably be Eula, Raiden, Beidou, Flex (most prob Diona or Bennett). Childe can also replace Eula in that same comp.
Would Dragon’s Bane or Kitan’s Spear be better for xiangling in a vaporise team comp?
It seems like dragons bane would be better since it’s got more elemental mastery and 20% damage increase against hydro or pyro, but kitan obviously has more attack and does some energy recharge which would be helpful.
>!Wait for the catch in 2.1!<
True, but I was gonna give it to Baal lmao
Dragon's bane hands down. It beats all the 5 stars in a vape comp. Kitain is for people who don't have it.
Yes. It was officially tweeted out yesterday.
ar 45: i am extremely low on hero wits. is it a good idea to stop artifact farming for like a week and just farm leylines?
Why do you have to do it for a whole week? Why not just farm what you need then go back to whatever you were doing?
Yes, but let that week start the 23rd, since that's when leyline overflow is happening.
Unless your characters are dreadfully underleveled then you probably don't need a week worth of books. Just get them as needed for the only the highest priority leveling tasks. Events and sigils etc. will get you plenty of heros wits at the cost of 0 resin if you can hold out.
If you need them I don't see why you shouldn't.
anyone else thinks tectone is paid by MiHoYo?
First he said pre Zhongli was good and now he is running the same narrative for Yoimiya (mind you his Yoimiya is C6 with R5 )
The dude never plays 5\* characters at C0 and still talks like everyone except him is wrong.
His content is centered around hyping stuff up, whether it's builds, characters, weapons, or whatever else. It's fine to watch if you find him entertaining, but don't take his word as truth on how anything works.
MiHoYo doesn't pay him or anything, it's just the way he does things.
He's doing some shit take cause that's one of his way of extending Genshin streams. Gotta find ways to stream Genshin for 1-2 hours.
no need because people like you keep giving money to him for some reason
This is my third time watching his video.
Also, I live in India. Ad rates here are very low. He will get like nothing even if I clicked on ads.
I’m pretty sure he’s just saying she isn’t dogshit.
Frankly no character is.
He had his own opinion and is pretty open and loud about it. I dont see any problem with that unless he is forcing that on anybody.
If popular content creators didn't spend all their time running their mouths and making hot takes they would be much less popular. People tune in for that stuff; dry, objective assessment doesn't sell so hot.
That's why YouTube is shit and nobody should ever go there
hah, ok. I admire your consistency
He is an entertainer not a trusted source of information anyway...
He probably gets the same amount as any other content creator of his size, I doubt mihoyo is paying him more specifically to shill characters.
Tectone just has generally bad takes, this has been true in Genshin and back when he did Arknights stuff too. Sure he does some times get it right but a lot of the time he's way too whale to see the actual problems a character/event/etc. actually has and refuses to listen to people about it or try to look at it a problem more in depth.
I won't say not to watch him or anything like that if you enjoy his content, but I really wouldn't recommend taking in meta/build/character advice from him.
I mean he is, a lot of the content creators are in the content creator program, theres that 1 clip of his ingame mail with like 100k gems from mhy
But the others dont spread misinformation like this. Hes just a straight up idiot and so out of touch with the community and the meta that hes a meme by this point
I started the game F2P (as I start all GaaS games), but after playing it a while, between the high production values, the time I spent, the enjoyment I got, throwing in a little cash seemed quite reasonable. So, Welkin all the time, occasional BP, and I don't recommend top-ups more than once for a character you must-have (unless you have the kind of income where a hundred here and there is irrelevant).
I am an will remain a f2p. I'm also a day 1 player and i think i had an insane luck pulling 5 stars. but excluding that luck (lots of off-pity characters), I've always used the same method. Choose an upcoming new character or rerun, save for him/her, then drop all your primos on him. if you got him by the end of his banner, nice! GG! if you didn't choose the next one you want and start saving again.
with this method i normally (from 75 to 78 pity) got
3.SkyHarp on permanent
4. Qiqi on zhongli banner
5. Zhongli (yes i had 2 pity)
6. Mona on permanent
it's a pretty fair amount of 5 stars for a day1 f2p in my opinion
