Daily Questions Megathread (May 25, 2021)
By - Veritasibility
I heard you can unlock a anemoculus map somehow. Is that true?
Yep, but it's online, not in genshin
does elemental mastery benefit xiao in any way? and what are the best artifacts stats for him aside from attack and crit rate/damage
Getting more isn't necessarily a bad thing, it just doesn't do a whole lot compare to Crit and ATK. You can always swirl things for a bit of extra damage. More ER is good.
yeah i don’t think it’s like the worst substat to get, but people seem to be very against it on him
any recc team comps for abyss 12, specifically 12-2-2? im dying super quick
just ran 1:eula, zhong, venti, fischl
2: hu tao, c1 bennett, c1 xl, anemo mc
i assume cryo is gonna be necessary. have c0 diona im kinda sorta building, do you think she'll fit here? also have a c6 beidou im potentially gonna build. have a c3 xq on the sidelines since he seems useless on chamber 2. ty!
Yeah, Diona would be great there.
Hu Tao is fine cause she can vaporize the enemies, but she would benefit from a shield and some cryo
Has the unusual hilichurl from the world map stopped spawning after the event started? I only recently got to farming them for the achievement / primo's and starting earlier today, after I have finished part 1 of the Mimi Tomo Event, I tried to go around the 15 potential spawn points and have not found Wei anywhere. Can anyone who also hunts this guy for ARexp or the achievement also confirm this?
On the bright side, killing the unusual hilichurl in the event did add to my achievement count. So if my suspicions pan out, I guess that's a potential decrease from 4 farmed a day to just 1 for the duration of the event.
Best team with Zhongli and Childe?
There is so many any other chapters you want to use and what do you have? Beidou fischl, bennet xiangling, Geo MC Xiangling/Fischl/beidou/rosaria/kaeya, xinqiu beidou/fischl, Ningguang xiangling. Honestly anything works.
Has anyone heard any leaks about an Albedo rerun? Just wondering if I’m safe using my guaranteed pity on Eula or if I should wait to get Albedo if he’s coming soonish like within the next couple months.
All that can really be said is that he's unlikely to come back in the 1.6 patch. However, given that he is the only limited banner character to be featured in the most recent Misty Dungeon, I imagine miHoYo is considering a rerun sooner instead of later.
Good point!! I’ll keep saving then :)
If ignoring substats, what would be better on sub dps Xiangling? ATK% sands with Starglitter, or ER% sands with Dragon's Bane?
Consider she's wearing 2p CW 2p NO, and she's on a 2 Geo 2 Pyro team.
i'd go with starglitter since the substat and passive of dbane is useless in that team comp
No hydro or cryo for reactions, EM is completely useless. The first option.
Ignoring weapons, talents, constellations and character level, what’s the best damage dealing build for ganyu?
1) 4 pc blizz (freeze) scaling on as high CD damage as possible?
2) 4 pc wanderers (melt) scaling on 1:2 CR CD?
3) Any other builds?
I’m currently using 4 pc melt 60:120 CR CD, I want to go higher but just wondering if this is already the best.
4 piece wanderers melt is the build with biggest hits and highest DPS in the long term, but it’s a lot harder to get the right set of artifacts, it depends on having the right comp, and it’s hardest to play.
Your first set is a better option because it deals almost as much damage and is easier to build and execute earlier in the game. Then when you get to AR 55+ you may have good enough wanderers that you can switch.
There is definetly Room for improvement mine has slightly higher critstats and there are still 2 pretty trashy artifactpieces.
Overall melt has a slightly higher dmg ceiling but it is more finicky to play so if you can build the morgana team you don't lose out on much dmg
So basically continue farming troupe and keep the 1:2 ratio but go higher right?
Morgana is the short Form of the meta freeze team.
Edit yes keep farming I mean stacking some gems isn't the worst
> What's morgana
It's the name for a team consisting of Ganyu, Mona, Diona, Venti.
Lol cool would never have guessed venti, thanks
I think Venti is not included, he's just the most commonly used 4th slot. **MO**na, **GA**nyu, dio**NA.** But I'm still unsure where the **R** came from.
I think Wanderers is better damage while Blizzard is better for groups/ comfort since the enemies will likely be perma-frozen.
It depends on Bennett's actual level too, assuming he's level 90 you'll get 871.92 ATK, or 1029.35 ATK if you boost him to C5.
Unless you really want to min-max, I'd say it's more worth it to get new characters than more Bennett cons.
oh. my. god. 1k attack buff
when i try to go to the ice cube, theres a puzzle. how do i get the cube?
complete the “in the mountains” quest first
when you roll a 10 pull does it count as only one or ten in the pity counter?
it counts 10 pulls in the counter
It counts as only 1 so yeah just do single pulls otherwise you need 900 wishes to reach pity lmao
No it is not. If you don’t know something, don’t reply here. If you’re trolling, don’t reply here. This is for helping other people, not for lying and writing stupid things
Since when redditors have such big poles up their asses? These types of questions are answered ingame, and still people ask on a daily basis. There's obviously going to be lots of correct answers to this so why bother commenting under someone that is obviously joking?
Ah yes, the "since there are so many right answers, lets let that someone who is being a jack ass get a free pass" reply. The message thread isnt for jokes, since dumb shit like that could confuse the poster, which is why he is asking in the first place. If you want that, start a comedy thread or a sarcasm thread and dont post those "jokes" here. They dont serve a purpose for the damn thread's namesake. God, it's funny how this reddit tolerates stupid answers like that.
What has this world become, literally full of idiots smh
That guy was obviously someone who was starting playing the game. He doesn’t know about wishing, probably he didn’t make any 10 pull yet. It may be obvious for you that he was joking, but for a dude who has spent only a couple of hours playing, is not that obvious. Also, is hard to notice irony in a chat/forum/write conversation.
And yea, lot of people asking for stuff answered in the game, like the vape dmg, how EM works, and, specially, about the gacha system. That was a very basic and easy to reply question, but it was still a dude who didn’t know anything. There’s no need to lie him
Imho people that can't fucking find info that is ingame, shouldn't be allowed to play in the first place
You have to understand one thing: people is lazy. For the poster, it’s easier to create a Reddit account, make a post asking for that, reading that the automod deleted his post and then asking it again in this question thread; than searching it in google or in the in game info. He does more work just for not having to search it by himself.
Is he stupid? Yes
That justify lying to him? No
Counts as 10
It counts as doing 10 single pulls in a row.
Which is a better option for C0 Prototype Ganyu?
1) 37% CR + 198% CD
2) 68% CR + 120% CD
Top is better for 4pc bliz. Bottom is better for general use/melt
Thank you :)
First for freeze with Blizzard set, second for melt with Wanderer
Thank you that appears to be the general consensus
First will be better once you add in Ganyu's +20% crit rate talent, regardless of her artifact set
Does this apply to melt comps as well?
Yeah, that's what I mean by regardless of her artifact set (Blizzard Strayer Freeze vs. Wanderer Melt)
Is this in Freeze or Wanderer's?
I use wanderers but I’ll switch to whichever is the better dmg dealer (idc about play style)
does anyone know where i can buy the sturdy pine fence?
Round 3 of Adeptal mirror
Will inzuma be coming in 1.6? What are the info about inzuma?
Some days ago, there were leaks about >!the release of an archipelago affiliated with Inazuma in 1.6!< and >! Inazuma being teased by mihoyo themselves without a release date.!< Assuming >!Ayaka and Yoimiya -- 2 units affiliated with Inazuma -- will probably release (please, mihoyo!) in 1.7, it is likely that they'll give us Inazuma as well.!< Take it with a grain of salt, though. Nothing's guaranteed.
Nah, we'll get some small islands but no Inazuma yet.
No. Not sure about what info we have about it currently
Got eula to 90 today, talents lvl8, took razors gear and gave it to her, cr60/cd160, Snow-Tombed Starsilver, phys dmg goblet. 2xpale flame, 2xbloodstained.
Same gear, same talent lvls and she deals less normal attack dmg then my razor, despite the fact that he has less cd with the same set. I mean way less, she deals 8k and he deals 12k first slash. Very disappointed I wasted my hard earned 100% guarantee on her.
I was lured in with those 600k and 5mil dmg videos, I thought 5 mil? I should be able to deal at least 200k without any reactions and food right? WRONG. at best I hit 86k, usually its 40k sometimes even 18k.
Ah and the question is, why they do this?
50% of eula's dps is coming from her burst and the other 50% is her normal atk and skill and and while razor normal attacks is like 90% of his dps lol.
Eula literally has higher first hit multiplier than Razor at the same talent level so you're doing something wrong lol
My game is bugged or something. Sometimes I have to re-equip all gear for zhongli otherwise his meteor deals 8k instead of usual 40k. When Eula was lvl60 and talents lvl 1, her ult dealt 38k, now with everything at lvl8 I deal 18k. Something is definitely wrong.
Eula is a burst dmg dealer, her dmg mostly comes from her burst. Razor is a Sustained dmg dealer. She is balanced with her ult doing nuke dmg.
Same here lol drowning in regrets
Well then you’re doing something wrong. Eula is literally a better Razor that also has huge nuke
Cuz they give her a harder hitting burst to balance.
Are you missing any buffs or debuffs when using Eula? At level 8 talents Razor has 151.51% on the first slash and Eula has 153.38% so their damage shouldn't have that big of a difference.
I'm not into elemental reactions or food buffs so I don't think so.
Do you use Razor's elemental skill before initiating the attack? If you have C4, this will lower their defense and cause him to deal more damage. Eula can do the same thing but she needs to charge up her stacks first.
My razor rotation is hold e then normal until e is available again and repeat...
What is 50/50 exactly?
50/50 is the chance to win or lose in the pity system on the first time of summoning & after every time you got a featured 5 star character.
The very first pity you have is 50/50 (you can e.g. either get Eula or someone from the standard pool). If you got Eula, you won, and the next 5 star will be 50/50. If you lose 50/50 and get an off-banner 5 star character, the next one will be guaranteed Eula.
When you get a 5 star from the limited character banner for the first time, it has a 50% chance (50/50) of being the limited character. If you don't get them, then the next 5 star you get will have a 100% chance of being the featured character, even if the featured character has changed.
Your chance of either getting the featured unit or a standard unit.
who is the best shielding character that isn't zhongli? i have yet to build one yet
Noelle has more shield HP than Diona but her shield has more dowtime than Diona.
Diona is pretty easily the second best because of her high uptime on top of everything else she brings to a team. Noelle should really be looked at as a DPS who shields herself and heals, not a character who you bring as utility for the rest of the team.
noelle for shield alone. Diona if you need more features along with the shield
In terms of shield HP I think Noelle, but Diona is more useful.
Diona, high uptime and can also heal. Noelle has a stronger shield but her cooldown is too long.
How do I get 5 star artifacts? I’m adventure rank 30 and have no clue what to do to get them. I just found out about building characters so I’m trying to get better artifacts
you got awhile before you're ready for level 90 domains. Find yourself a great 4 star set and roll with that.
Ty! Any tips on getting 4 stars? Trying to complete berserker/martial artist build for Beidou
just spend a few days farming the artifact domains. what's your Beidou? physical, electro or sub dps? might want 2x Thundering Fury.
Don't worry too much about artifacts yet. 5* artis will come flowing once you hit AR45, where you will want to farm domains.
Thanks for letting me know!
You have to reach at least ar40 to be able to obtain 5star artifacts on domains. ar45 for a guarantee 1 5 star artifact every domain run
Does anyone know the total number of achievements you can have by now?
I tried looking it up but I can't find a website that's up to date.
Will they add stairs and ramps for the teapot?
not in 1.6
Considering there's a section for stairs inside the mansion, probably.
it is a mystery
Would a c0 klee or eula be easier to build as a dps?
Eula does a lot of damage even when poorly built, if that's what you're asking. Rotations are a lot different, Eula is more strict than Klee.
Ahh ok thx
what ar should i beat spiral abyss floors 6-8? when i was ar30 i finished spiral abyss 1-5 but kept dying at floor 6, now im ar44 and still dont know if i can beat it
I did it at AR50 /shrug. was really easy
you can def beat floor 6 at ar 44. you can prob do even up to floor 10 but to 9 star every level? that might take some more time
I'm ar40 and can do up to 8th flr 3*.
I would say wait at least for AR45 so you can farm artifacts. You won't go far with your +12 3* Berserkers.
At AR44 you should be able to at least reach floor 11.
at ar44 you can reach floor 11 if you have good characters.
I have a dilemma
I want both Eula and >!Kazuha!<, but I don't know if >!Kazuha!< banner comes right after Eula banner or Klee rerun is in between them. If it's the first I'd rather save for >!Kazuha!< but if it's the latter I'd pull for Eula (I have a guaranteed 50 /50 currently) and believe in rng for >!Kazuha!<. Does anyone know which is it?
We're getting the 1.6 livestream in a couple days so the banner order should be confirmed for sure then
thank you for the advice!
Most probably Klee first. We should know more this Friday, they'll probably say it during the stream for 1.6
alright thanks for the advice!
Its klee after eula
are you certain?
This information is all from the trusted leakers who have also correctly predicted the past banners (since according to them, ludi harpastum will be the focus on the first half of the patch) but ofc official info will be announced on friday so...
Each new versions livestream gives 3 primogem codes throughout the livestream. You'll find them here when the livestream happens for sure.
Correct. As for the primos, they usually give out gift codes during the live stream. They're time-limited and usually only last 24 hours or so (or even less...?), so you should definitely at least check Reddit right after the stream to get those codes! Someone will post them on this sub. Probably at least 10 people tbh.
Yes it's that stream and the free primogems will come from codes that they'll give out during the livestream.
Stream starts at 11:00 AM UTC-5 so just work your way to your timezone yourself.
Its not correct, the hydro swords are faster than dilucs hits.
What burst description? Yes hydro is applied first, the hydro swords already hit while Diluc is still mid swing.
Makes sense, but the game recognizes it as as soon as the attack animation starts which actually makes even more sense if you think about it.
Normally, most of the reactions will be caused by Diluc, since XQ applies a stronger Aura than Diluc. So the moment XQ would trigger the reaction, he also applies his Aura. And since the Aura is not cleansed by a single reaction and the swords hit after the AA, the moment it is cleansed, it is also reapplied.
EDIT: Meant swords hit before AA
Same strength aura doesn't mean much, you need to think about both triggers and auras. Hydro wipes out Pyro auras much faster than Pyro wipes out Hydro auras.
For Pyro on Hydro, or Cryo on Pyro:
> If the aura is 1U, you won’t be able to trigger two reactions with 2U triggers, but you WILL be able to trigger two reactions with 1U triggers. Both of the units with the highest DPS ceilings in the game, Ganyu and Diluc, can actually use this mechanic to significantly increase their damage.
After that, there's an entire section explaining why Diluc/Xingqiu works.
Yes... They have the same Gauge Unit. But Pyro-Vaporize has a 0,5% multiplier, so it won‘t consume the Aura right away.
It's about reaction strength. Vaporize is hydro on pyro for 2x damage, but it removes 2x pyro units. Reverse vaporize is 1.5x damage, but it removes 0.5x hydro units. So you can do 2 1U reaction on 1U hydro application. So pyro infused AA and E that have separate ICD will do reverse vaporize z and than you'll get hit with Xingqiu burst establishing again hydro aura. Xingqiu burst will never do vaporize.
In case Diluc is infused with pyro yes, but the game still considers Diluc as doing the reaction, because he's the one on field
Please don't spread weird misinformation. Reverse vaporize removes 0.5x hydro units, so even when Diluc is pyro infused he still can't establish pyro aura for Xingqiu to do vaporize
It actually applies hydro before normal attack connect, so it's Diluc doing all the vaporizes. Besides, you need 2 pyro application to clear hydro aura, so it's really hard to do vaporize instead of reverse vaporize. It happens only with Klee during her ult as she apply so much pyro.
As you normally weave his attacks aa>e>aa both will trigger at some points
If it means his burst is available when you need it, yeah.
Xiao does PP damage outside of his burst.
it depends on your energy requirements, if you need more than 2 bursts to clear content then ER sands will help you charge those later bursts easier. as you invest more in xiao+his team, chances are you can clear in 1-2 bursts so you don't need as much ER
Depends, what is your atk stat?
If you need it to have good uptime on his Burst, sure. The most important part is if he's kicking ass the way you want him to.
Just to add other possibilities to the pool though, you could run Favonius on one or more of his supporting cast, if you happen to have those - I'll admit I'm a bit poorly equipped to recognize Xiao's unassisted energy requirements because I run two Favonius on my team and he's got very weird rolls on his artifacts for me, so if you feel like you need the extra ER to get his uptime in a place you like go for it.
Is razor good at applying electro or no?
if no, which character is very good at doing so? (5 stars or 4 stars suggestion will do, even tho i don't have them yet)
No, he can get super conduct for himself decent enough if you have a cryo applier, but he's not a good electro applier as a support. He's all out hyper dps, no other roles really suit him.
He is pretty meh at it it's enough for himself to get superconduct but if you want him supportwise wouldn't recommend it.
The best is probably fischl followed by beidou
No, Razor is a physical main DPS. If you want someone to just apply electro, Fischl comes to mind as the best choice. Lisa only deals Electro damage, she could be used for that. I guess even Keqing's E is more useful for that than Razor. Why though?
Edit: forgot about Beidou
Razor is not
The best choices are fischl and beidou (with enough er)
Is mappa mare good for sub-dps mona? i already have the widsith but someone else uses it.
"Good" is relative, but if Widsith is no option (it's her sub DPS BiS), then why not. There's far worse. Solar Pearl would be the only other good 4*
Not at all a question but I just wanted to say that Yanfei is surprisingly great. I enjoy her play style very much. Gave her the eye of perception since each attack has a 50% percent and for me she deals pretty good damage. Not only that but each attack is guaranteed pyro unlike Diluc. Got her at 80/80 atm and she's slowly becoming my favourite.
I use Yanfei to apply pyro from a distance for Melt/Reverse Melt with Ganyu. works great on big geo boss so I can keep my distance
You think is she better than Ningguang?
I have at c1 on both my accounts but I basically never her so I can't compare, sorry.
In the future there is also a leak of a free catalyst that is better than eye of perception, so i recommend preparing for the new catalyst.
Agreeed, she can kill the cryo cube in a minute thanks to her pyro attacks
It also is also for diluc if it is not you would just need to change your rotations,nur good for you to find a character you enjoy
Yeah the elemental resonance helps a lot, literally 25% more, hehe. My main account is super stacked but my second which I have Yanfei on has very few 5 stars, been putting the effort to level her and it's finally paying off. Never really understood the 'like their play style' thing until tonight after seeing her deal like 5000-6000 damage about half the time. Very nice.
Pyro slimes must love your guaranteed pyro.
So i just yolo roll and rolled Eula i know she's a dps but my main dps since the start of the the game is diluc (double crowned) should i build her as a dps or continue to farm and turn diluc to pure pryo (no wgs)
edit: also because i got ganyu and xiao too as subdps and dps respectively :/
You'll need to eventually build 2 teams, so maybe Eula can be your second DPS?
i alr have a second team with xiao as my dps for the second team
Eula has a higher dps rate but paired up with xiao or ganyu won’t let her reach full potential
You don't have to use every character.
You could try her, if you like her better than diluc or xiao and have a team that could work for her + the resources to build her, build her, if not, bench her for now.
Well you don't absolutely need her at the moment,also diluc is pretty much a 100% pyro dps either way so he should already be build that way
When wishing, can you only pull characters that are on the banner? Or is there a chance to pull every character in game
There's a button somewhere at the bottom of the wishing page called Details and it shows you who/what you can get on that banner.
On the character banner you can pull also the 4/5* of the standardbanner but you can't get other limited 5*
Every character that is available on standard banner. Limited 5\* such as zhongli, xiao, hu tao and in the future eula can only be pulled on their respective banners and reruns
There are some 4* that are only on the standard banner. I believe it consists of Amber, Kaeya, and Lisa. That's why it's so hard to get constellations for them.
Should I build a 2nd Favonius Lance for Sub-DPS Rosaria? I have a R2 one on my Xiangling with 3 extras and my other options are Deathmatch, Starglitter which I would need to craft, Blackcliff which I can buy from the shop.
Do you have eula? If so I would definitely recommend favonius lance on rosaria.. even if no eula, it's very good on her because it synergizes with her crit rate buffs and 4pc blizzard set
I run deathmatch on xiangling and favonius on rosaria, using bennett to battery XL
Would probably raise the deathmatch first so that you have options for different character setups
I've finally got my Diluc to 9/9/9. Which (if any) of his talents would be worth crowning? The only other abilities I've crowned so far on any character is Ganyu's AA.
normal attack, then E skill, then burst. unless your ER is so high his burst is always ready, then Burst second.
Actually wouldn't do it as 9 is fine and he doesn't have an abillity that is promoted like ganyu's aa if you absolutely want to do it probably aa
Does energy recharge% stat affect off field characters?
Let's say Beidou has 200% ER and she is off field does it change how many elemental skill Keqing needs to cast to completely recharge Beidou's ult compared to 100% ER (Without Beidou taking the particles/orbs herself)
Yes. Character not on the field get less energy from particle (3 on the field and 1.8 off field, 1 and 0.6 if it's different element). The amount of energy is further improved by ER of the character.
Yes, but the base energy per particle is lower for characters who are off-field.
would qiqi w/ 4pc ToM work with xiao? i have a feel it wouldn’t because of xiao’s jumps keeping the ball thing from hitting enemies, but i’m not sure
Yeah probably wouldn't it might have the buff if it hits every time but if you miss one hit the buff is gone also with her uptime issues I don't think it's worth it
i guess. thanks for the input :)
yup definitely. some selfish main DPSes are 4stars: razor, ningguang, and yanfei, 5stars: xiao, maybe eula
called so because they need to be on the field majority of the time to deal large dmg. razor&xiao, for example, must be out the entirety of their bursts
You should be rotating characters to use their skills off cooldown. Their skills generate energy to allow you to use their bursts - if you stay on one character for a long time, that's ALOT of energy not being created.
With that said, when starting it's not a big deal. I'm talking about end game, after you are super comfortable with your team. It's actually one of the greatest strengths of the game IMO - having to pick a team that has the best coordination/combinations to face whatever challenge you're working on. This game would be a lot more boring if you only had one character to play with.
It would be boring to just spam left click waiting for skill cooldown or burst energy. The game was designed for the whole party and interactions between different elements.
That depends a lot on which characters you're using in the same team, and on how you built them (i.e. their artifacts; disregard this until at least AR45).
If you want to focus on one character that is on the field for a long time, that's what we call a selfish main DPS. There's several of them out there, like Razor, Yanfei, or Xiao. The distinction is important if you want to max out your damage output because there are also main DPS characters that benefit from *not* being on the field all the time; for example, it is actually detrimental to Hu Tao to stay on the field for a long time.
HOWEVER! That doesn't mean you need to play every character a certain way. Just play however you like to; as long as it works out for you and you're not struggling, have fun exploring character mechanics on your own! Don't stress about learning those mechanics. If you realise you have a character you don't understand the value of, you can always check some YouTube guides then, or search Reddit for it. Cross that bridge when you come to it.
Focusing on one character is actually a great idea. Resources to upgrade your team are scarce and time-gated. By maxing a single character you won't have trouble with the overworld mobs.
I had a team of Razor/Barbara until mid AR 40s.
there are some characters who tend to stay out for longer but at some point you have to switch to apply buffs/healing etc
Well you would miss a good amount of dmg there are selfish dps character that want to stay but even those want elemental support so this game might not be a good choice if you have problems with it
If you want to clear the abyss which is end game content then yes you will have to be constantly switching. Though those supports aren't really invested in and they are just to support. You will mostly be funneling all your resources into 2 main dpses.
Most of the top teams focus on having 1 character out most of the time while the other characters only swap in to use their elemental skills and bursts to support the primary character in some way. The gameplay is still focused on the core character, but the others support and make their play more efficient. It's very difficult to clear the game by only using 1 character and never swapping.
You can keep your main character in the fields and just use it, dont worry about what you saw. There are many characters that have low cooldowns so you can choose to use them and swap constantly but thats just a choice. Also its way more fun that having just one loser plunging forever lol
Why is superconduct better than overloaded as a chain reaction? I have been running Keqing+Benett with Diana sup. I prefer the spameable keq+Ben elemental spells, Diana just for heals and cheap shields. Should I run Kaeya instead of benett and switch to Noelle as healer+shield?
Superconduct is for shredding physical resistance. Overload deals aoe dmg but it heavily knocks back opponents. Annoying if you're playing a melee character, but turbo comps is a thing anyway.
I wouldnt use Noelle as a healer. She takes too much field time to heal. I suggest swapping Diona with Kaeya.
