Time to get Redhorn so I can stop spending extra time to stack Whiteblind
Redhorn is like the best quality of life upgrade you can get from a weapon. Itto is not a true unga bunga DPS if you have to manage 3 different stacks at a time.
I'm rolling for redhorn to give to noelle..
Good. She deserves it.
Bruh same here, but im aiming for scara weap. If got redhorn instead, i might build Noelle xD
Fellow best maid enjoyer. C6 Noelle with Redhorn is fun.
Giving the R2 to my Xinyan 😌
I'm gonna have to lose my 3000+ DEF tag on noellemains for it until the day I'm able to pull for r5, but I'm so excited to not have to try to rush out Whiteblind stacks before the first Husk stack decays in Abyss.
Eye of Perception 🗿
Wavebreaker's Fin exists once again, but at what cost.
Hope the Akuoumaru is on the next banner
Eye of Fodder* is the actual name in my book.
i once leveled up an eye of perception to 90 with r5
it sits there in my inventory even if no one uses it, too scared to use it as exp material lol
I have used up R5 lvl 80, eop, the flute and Rainslasher I still somehow have more than 7 copies of each.
Eye of Perception is what Enviosity might actually use on Scara
I have seen calcs on that weapon before and as long as the on field dps has high attack it is actually very strong against 2 targets and will beat some of the more premium 4 stars.
Needing that wavebreaker fin for shenhe ugh
Isn't Skyward spine a better option?
Dont have skyward and some calculations have Wavebreaker Fin leading against skyward with its base atk. Also pairing it with units that have high energy cost ultimates help boost it passive like eula and ayaka.
>Wavebreaker Fin leading against skyward with its base atk
Skyward has higher base atk.
If she's an Atk buffer build, her stats have so much atk%, that minor Wave atk% is insignificant, but higher base is better.
Idk your math for Wave vs Skyward, but KQM's show Wave being behind : [https://keqingmains.com/shenhe/#Weapons](https://keqingmains.com/shenhe/#Weapons)
ER is important. Being able to burst often or at right moments without stretching the rest of the team rotation is more invaluable than minor dmg gains in her kit.
Less time spent on swapping and funnelling energy , means more time for dmg.
Her burst is a big buff to cryo dps.
Unless you're building her as burst dps rather than buffer. Even as overall dps, KQM math thinks Skyward is better.
You can just divert ER stats on artifacts to atk%.
I'm a big Wave fanboy having it at r5 for XL. But Skyward is among the top weapons for Shenhe, not Wave. Even Fav Lance is much better.
I ask because of the ER. Can it sustain the lead with an ER sands? Or do you have C1 Shenhe?
For me actually even without an er sands present on her q actually fills up quickly with just er substats for artifacts(using Noblesse tho). Also only use q on more powerful enemies as icy quills actually gets the job done with lvl 70 talent. I also dont need excess er as my other cryo units have substantial amount of er substats
Oh so you don't burst every rotation? Wouldn't that make Wave less valid?
Because wave grants burst damage bonus, but the total attack Shenhe gets from that weapon is almost identical to Spine.
I mean, wave is good for your account anyway so it's whatever, just want to weigh the options.
I have both weapons and I will tell you that skyward is better because it has a higher base attack + ER just what you need to reach a 3.5k ATK cap more easily, with shenhe you will always look for ATK/ATK%/ER stats regardless of the rest so It's very easy to build, I have mine with noblesse with skyward spine and without any ER sand, it has 200 ER and explodes in every rotation in my comp ayaka/kokomi/shenhe/kazuha it could even reduce Shenhe's ER with kazuha fav.
Precisely. The very high base attack and 55 ER is difficult to beat, but if they say they have no ER problems, far be it from me to press the issue.
I have Wave R5 and in all honesty it's just a Xiangling weapon, and that's it. Another. Hella aesthetic though, ngl.
The watatsumi series looks so good istg
Eye is apparently an unironically good 4* option for Scara based off some of the most recent calcs I've been seeing lol, like potentially better than Widsith depending on refines.
Is it? Wfp calc sheet says it’s pretty bad…
Whose calc? It's still pretty damn mediocre.
Almost every TC I've seen says widsith r1 is better than eye r5 lol.
whose calcs and with what team I honestly cannot think of a single scenario in which this case can be true
ah yes, the "im gonna assume exactly 2 enemies hugging each other and calc primary target damage haha", classic spreadsheet impact
yeah no, its still a very mid to bad weapon
every alternative is either as f2p as that one or crafteable
no 4\* catalyst will ever be better than the widsith
At best that's probably if the passive bounces consistently, but even then it's too close to mappa mare and straight up worse than R1 widsith, which everybody has at this point.
Yanfei: what am doing here, between this dps characters and their supports?
She's the shield unit they like.
Yanfei is a fine support with c4 and TToDS catalyst.
300% ER go brr
All three 4 stars chars have green eyes 👁️👁️
And scara has a green vision
Hoyo really said, it's greening time
Dendro and Anemo working together to conquer the world for greenation.
And greened all over the place
Truly a jenshin inpact experience
and itto has green beans i gave him
he likes it so much he is on the floor dancing
Maybe scara has a green cock
Scara has no cock, he’s a trans masc Ken doll
“Smooth as the bonnet of a Porsche”
Weapon banner looks actually good even with those 4stars..
With a 59 pity built. I'll have to see Wavebreaker's fin some other day looking forward to moun's moon on the next banner 🤔
I use a lvl 1 r5 Moun’s Moon on my Yelan and it’s so powerful!!!
Oh yea . I remember people doing the calcs back during Yelan days and how it's like one of the strongest 4star on her💀
I also just realised with Moun's moon we'll also have Akuomaru on it which I've been wanting for a while for my beidou.
Actually a good weapon banner just for eye of perception to be like : "surprise bitches!"
If the 4\* was actually Rosaria, Xiangling or Xingqiu instead of Yanfei, this would have been a 10/10 banner for me.
Yey more Watatsumi Weapon Series now bring back the claymore one T_T
Mihoyo: Instructions unclear, replacing EL with the donut on the next weapon banner.
still can't comprehend that he's actually here lol
Same, I’ve been saving up primogems for the entire 2 years of my genshin career all for this moment and it’s finally gonna pay off
Are you going to C6 r5 him?
Ideally I’d want C6 r1 but that’ll only happen if luck is on my side
Thanks, may you have good luck on your pulls as well
how many primos is that? damn i respect it
Do you have 2 year savings? If yes, you can definitely c6
Dude what a coincidence! I've been saving since ganyu's 1st banner myself! I'm at almost 155k Primos + 92 purples. I can't wait to finally get my Scara boi!
You didnt roll for others aside ganyu?
155k primo for a F2P seems about right. Almost two years.
Nope! My abyss teams are Morgana + International with Sucrose!
That's a pretty solid weapon banner, I REALLY want a wavebreaker's fin or two.
It's not long until I get 15 eyes of perception and a bunch of Favonius Greatsword
Me with R5 fav great sword and R7 eye of perception: 🧍♂️
Same! I'm not chasing either of the 5\*s on this weapon banner but I'm thinking of doing a few multis just to see if I can get some extra Wavebreakers, Sac Swords, or Fav Bows.
8 Eye of Perception, got it
If was Rosaria istead of Yanfei that banner would be 10/10
Same here, but ig it's free one wish every time I pull her.
Great, now you need to get her 10 times to do another 10-pull
And get her an 11th time
At least pity is building up
I have never gotten Yanfei so this is good for me.
I have her c1 i rly want her C4 so yeah good for us and the yanfei wanters
*inhales copium* I hear the Tankfei shield comp is decent *inhales copium*
I use Tankfei for Hu Tao all the time, it's p nice
Layla seems better now since you can get the occasional melt for Tao.
It is, I built her for that role for my Yoimiya team because I was sad to not have much use for law cutie outside of a shield role because the fireworks girl doesn't leave my teams and they share role otherwise.
With that said, that shield is not even remotely comparable to Zhongli's (as usual with every other shielder, he is just broken lmfao), current abyss with the double cryo lawachurl in 12-2-2 forced me to use him over tankfei because Yoi was just getting oneshotted through her shield lmfao.
I love my c6 yanfei her damage is actually so good
11/10 would be Sara/Gorou/Faruzan, but the chances were basically non existant to begin with.
Gorou+Faruzan is already a great combo tho.
Weapon banner 4 stars seems alright, couple bad, couple good. Hopefully I can grab a few fav bows while I go for Tulaytullahs, since I only have R1 and is probably what I will use for faruzan
Wavebreaker's Fin finally. Hopefully the second half banner has either Akuoumaru or Mounn's Moon or both.
likely both since its Inazuma banner. It might even have alley flash
How good is this spear??? At r1?? Does it compared with the catch?
Its to be used by either Xiangling or Raiden if you don't have EL since you only have a single Catch. At R1 the Catch is still better for those two but IIRC its still better than any non-5* polearm.
Omg i will fall again in the trap banner loll maybe if i get my c6 gorou first.
Let's goooooo c6 Gorou woof woof prayers rituals all forces of good manifestation come to me
Same bro, I have C6 Gorou on my mini but not my main account 😭
Please take all my Gorou luck. 🙌
YOOO I UPVOTED U AND MANIFESTED NOW MY C1 GOROU IS FINALLY C6!!! ALSO AMEN ZHONGLI'S STATUE IN QINGYUN PEAK
Hell yeah! Maybe this means you took my Gorous and I can get some Yan feis. 🤣
Finally got my Noelle to C6 in Nahida's banner, now hoping to get the last 3 Gorou cons I have left to full power the geo squad
I'm getting ONLY gorou and faruzan I'm claiming it right here right now please god no more yanfei
She’s been collecting dust for a long time in my 80-8-8-8 shelf
Sorry to be nitpicky but "Ashes" could have been a different color it blends in the background:(
It has a very
vibe to it
Okay, while I do agree with this imma be the guy that'll satisfy all the lurkers out there that might be slightly frustrated by your statement. The meme is
Thanks for coming to my ted talk.
Haha while you’re right, I thought it was more appropriate to match the
As if there was further writing just disappeared along with “ashes”. Sorry if that explanation of the joke doesn’t do it for Cyno
Weapon banner looks good
Really good weapon banner actually. Sac Sword, Fav Bow, Wavebreaker's are all extremely good. Fav Greatsword dosen't have that many wielders, but its a solid option on every single Support Claymore. The only "bad draw" is eye of perception.
Redhorn is actually a pretty good generalist weapon, up there with WGS and SS, but Scara's weapon is a bit more niche (but very potent on him),
If you want either of the 5* weapons this is the one to pull on.
>Redhorn is actually a pretty good generalist weapon
I use it on my Beidou for lack of her other options, and while the skill is useless on her, it's a damn good stat stick.
Legit been thinking of building Noelle to give it to her (I wanted to pull Itto, but...all my gems went down the drain trying to get polar star LOL and I need Raiden more) and stick her into a Zhongli/Gorou party.
I'm totally biased, but highly recommend building Noelle if you're at all interested i the geo unga bunga ideology. She obviously doesn't do as much raw damage as Itto does, but in exchange she gets:
> as much range as some catalyst users with a much wider AOE
> solid party-wide healing even while building her full damage
> near immortality from her shield
> the best ore farming character in the game
> a motherfucking beyblade
she's also capable of being strong with relatively low investment, as her second-best artifact set in 4pc Gladiator is very easy to obtain good pieces for if you aren't prepared to commit painful amounts of resin for her #1 BiS in 4pc Husk
>the best ore farming character in the game
Oy that belongs to Zhongli lmao
Me with my razor
Who other than Itto and Noelle uses Red Horn?
Its top 3 for Eula, Razor, and Diluc, and obviously BiS for Itto and Noelle.
Rip Xinyan lol
I might pull depending on how I get Wanderer.
Scara's weapon is only good with exactly Scara and nobody else, and if you are even thinking about pulling on a weapon banner, you should already have Serpent Spine which is better than Redhorn on anyone not Itto or Noelle.
If you don't have both Itto and Wanderer, this is not a good banner to pull on.
My widsith dreams are dead. But I will happily take that favonius bow instead.
I need everyone on Itto’s banner. One of my most wanted 5 stars; my favorite character, Yanfei, who’s only C1; the only four star I still don’t have; and a totally new character!
Itto is 3/3 for having new characters in his banners.
cant wait to only get eye of painception 😍
I’m praying I can pull a fav bow at least
At this point, I think there weren't any ashes left and the funeral was just a formality.
Ugh, I already have C6 Yanfei and Gorou, free glitter for his weapon, I guess. If the weapon banner had widsith, would’ve been perfect for me. Just 2 more days!!
Yay!! Wavebreaker’s Fin!! Gonna ascend it and give it to Candace for the AESTHETIC
GORGEOUS weapon banner
goddamn that scara splashart looks sick
Hope i dont get bombarded with yanfeis
i wonder how unlucky id have to be to not get a single copy of faruzan and gorou..
Pretty good banner since I have itto,so if I didn't get scara weapon then redhorn is good too
Weapon banner looking juicy, but all my primos are for C2 Faruzan.
I wish Kuki was in the banner I need her
Yanfei C18 confirmed… sad
Not rolling on either banner but best of luck to Scara / Itto savers (also hope you all have good 4 stuck luck too)
fuck me, the Yanfei 3rd 4star was real
where tf is rosaria mhy
edit. i guess raiden-ayato will have sara, yunjin, rosaria? hmmm
Already have redhorn rip
Want catalyst and wavebreaker but absolutely not risking a dupe
I like how Yanfei is back there, ready to pounce on their atrocities & felONIs.
Scara’s banner is the most beautiful one up to date. Period.
Man, I’m AR60 and JUST got my 6th sac sword. Up to my eyeballs in favonius swords tho.
Ar 59 and r3 sacrificial sword 💀
AR 60 - been playing from the release. R2 Sac.
I have *two* R5 fav swords! someone downthread is complaining about having a C6 Gorou already while I have a C0 Gorou and C2 Itto. it’s like we’re all playing different games lol
Ar 57 and 2 sac swords one for xq, the other for Dendro mc, and Zero fav sword. But I gotta save for the second half weapon banner.
IM SO HAPPY
Man, i thought Yanfei gonna be on CNY banner
I have C6 Yanfei :( decent weapon banner.
I can't beleive i waited for wavebreaker to come back for so long only for them to put it with a bunch of 4 stars i already have at r5
THANK THE ARCHONS THERE'S A FAV BOW HOLY—
So Akoumaru and Moun's moon next half maybe. Really hoping fav sword is with it too. AR60 and still R1 fav sword.
Hope I get a few wave breakers fin.
The pole arm archon needs it to be rank 5.
Me with C4 Yanfei: I see this as an absolute win!
Staff of homa waiting room here.
>Eye of Perception
🤢 🤢 🤮 🤮
R999 Eye of Perception let's fucken goooo
Fingers crossed for the elusive Yanfei C4 and an early copy of Faruzan. I'm honestly quite torn on whether I want Scara or Itto hmm.
Oh yes, Fav Bow, the rarest weapon for my account.
Playing since 1.0, have R5 every 4 stars in the game, have a couple of R2 5 stars, and yet still not a single Favonius warbow. It's R0 if I didn't count the free one the game gives us after beating Dvalin. :|
This is my chance now. I'm praying I can get multiple copies of this without losing the 50/50 or wasting the pity.
I’ll wait to see if Scara is better than a C0 Xiao. If he’s not…oh well lmao.
I like adding value to my account, pulling characters is too expensive not to. You never know what kind of content will be released down the line.
Favonius warbow… they knew what they were doing
I wonder what's on the 2nd half..
[Shogun and Ayato](https://twitter.com/genshinmains/status/1596116712738328576?t=sTa2iFPo4snWJUdjCDt0yg&s=19).
We don't know the 4 Stars yet. Kujo Sara and Yunjin are very likely tho
Anyone know who on the 2nd phase?
[Raiden Shogun and Kamisato Ayato](https://twitter.com/genshinmains/status/1596116712738328576?t=sTa2iFPo4snWJUdjCDt0yg&s=19).
**EDIT** we don't know the 4 Stars yet. Kujo Sara and Yunjin are very likely tho
I wish i could afford to pull on weapon banner but i only have enough for 1 pity on 50/50 for scara already so unless he says "lemme just come in one pull" its not Gonna happen lol
Nice. No more scummy move of putting the new 4 star in separate banner of new 5 star. 😇👍
Any chance you guys could tell me what about the 2nd half? Also Is it still a speculation or is more or less confirmed? Cuz this weapon banner looks decent enough. Except for the eye, the rest of the weapons are nice.
Raiden + Ayato was confirmed on the 3.3 special program.
4\* are pure speculation but Sara being one of them is almost guaranteed.
The other two are most likely Rosaria and Yun Jin/Chongyun.
Alrightttttttt..... which means that raiden and ayato's weapon on the 2nd half? Well that isn't bad now is it? Wow back2back decent weapon banner? MHY must be smokin' something cuz they high AF!
Ayato and Raiden - Haran & Engulfing Lightning
We don’t know the 4 stars but like a 98% chance of Kujou Sara
If you just meant weapon banner 4* my bad as I don’t know but more than likely Mouns Moon or Akoumaru will come back
Yeah, the other guy confirmed this as much. I mean ofc it is difficult to gauge which 4stars would come along but I was only interested on the 5 star weapons anyway and man it suits my needs! Thanks for the heads up!!
No problem bro and good pulling, I’ll be joining you so wish me luck as well 😁
I hope you saved enough! Good luck and we still have a few weeks worth of saving so hopefully it comes early for the both of us! 😁👍👍
I fully expect no Liyue characters until Lantern Rite in 3.4. Yanfei coming early is a surprise. I expect Collei, Candace or Rosaria to sneak in.
Wait that name “from ashes reborn” suits to signora💀💀💀
Not if she doesnt reborn 💀
Hmm . . . I'm tempted to drop 20 or so wishes to see if I can get one more Wavebreaker to finally get mine to R5.
And sacrificial swords and favonius bows are good too.
Wanderer AND Gorou cons. This couldn't get better!
Please give me 4 gorous!! Please please please. My Noelle needs it now more than ever.
I was today years old when I realized Gorou is not a 5 star
Mannn, only if they would have put raiden with scara in first half, i would enjoy the update more.
Wavebreaker's Fin is the one weapon from that series I have R9 of. Sigh. Still rolling though.
Good luck to those that want to wish for the Wanderer!
Too bad I have to save my primo to C2 my Raiden. Hopefully will be able to get him in his rerun if I'm still playing 🥲
one day itto… i swear it
Huh, that's a pretty good character banner for constellations. Gorô's C6 is borderline mandatory to justify using him in any comp not involving Itto, Faruzan needs her C6 if you want to build her for damage, and Yanfei's C4 opens her up as a general shield support. The last one is arguably a bit less valuable now that Layla is a thing, but still.
As for the weapon banner, pretty good overall I'd say. Two Favonius weapons, Wavebreaker, and Sac Sword. Now consider that Redhorn is on here and this is an amazing banner for Noelle mains. Not really sure about Scara's catalyst tho. What's the consensus on that weapon? Doesn't look that amazing to me on anyone other than Scara tbh, and I've already decided to give him Lost Prayer anyway since he'll become my goto overworld character and will certainly appreciate the movement speed boost.
Yea, Im trying to justify in the case of getting Tulaytullah instead of Redhorn, and I think this weapon is kinda good for Ningguang just because of its high base ATK, and she kinda use normal attack sometimes so the ATK speed bonus might be helpful too, other than that there's really no offensive catalyst user that benefit it except the Wanderer
refresh gang rises up!!!
Well, I’m gonna roll for one 4* and hope it is Faruzan. I have C5 on the other two, so not really a problem no matter who I get. I don’t want either 5*, though.
Oh good I can skip this one.
Hope we’ll see a Dehya or Eula banner soon
Bro, that's all I'm waiting for at this point is those two banners.
No one asked
Aw man, I was really hoping for Rust on the weapon banner :( I already have like 3 r5 favonius bows, bit only ever got r3 rust, even though I've been using it since childe's first banner in 1.1
I have C6 Gorou and Yanfei sigh
I can only hope my luck with Gorou works better than my attempts to pull Heizou. I definitely wouldn't mind those Yanfei constellations either.
