Lumine confirmed to still be on the top of her game even in a new land.
I do hope the initial Inazuma quests/Ayaka's personal quest paints from flattery and attention from Ba'al on Ayaka herself.

I'd be surprised if it was. Probably a rerun after Yoimiya. I worry about her weapon though; I was kinda figuring mistsplitter was it but it definitely fits better with Ayayayaka

Probably Ayaka depending on how she's presented. The connection with fireworks+festivals and Ayaka being part of the commission for culture allows for natural run-ins.

I'm really loving the ayamiya ship personally. Yoimiya's voicelines about Ayaka are really cute, and she even talks about having invited Ayaka to take a bath with her after they finished work together.

Yoimiya also calls her 'Ayaka-chan' when literally all the other lore and character voicelines we have about Ayaka stress her status and importance. She says Thoma is like a second brother to her, but even he doesn't even call her by her name or talk like they're all that close.

Bosses are a bit boring too, so I wouldn't say so for gameplay either.
>>
>>3501782
All the self insert pandering with her is extremely uncomfortable to read. But call it spite or whatever you want, it only makes me go even harder at shipping her with Yoimiya.
>>
>>3501654
I'm dropping it right now. There isn't much yuri, WAY too many flailing attempts at "cool" dudes (all of which made me roll my eyes), gacha is bullshit, and worst of all the game just isn't fun.

I dropped it 3 weeks after launch
After the first week it felt like a chore
It just didn’t have the soul GGZ and Honkai did

>>3502182
Personally my biggest issue with Genshin is just what an ungodly grind-fest it is. I hadn't done any story content between the end of the Liyue series and the present Inazuma update, since I'd always get burned out with the busywork. Farming ascension mats, leveling mats, weapon mats, talent mats, dailies for primo gems, weeklies for reputation rewards.

And whenever I do get around to doing story content, it always strikes me how no one seems to talk normal. The script is so verbose, absolutely no one uses any sort of linguistic contraction like a regular speaking human being. Maybe I should switch to JP voices, might feel less strange if it's purely text...

I don't play Honkai but I've noticed more and more people outside of /u/ claiming that Yae is a canon lesbian because of the fact that she bears an uncanny resemblance to another character from Honkai who apparently is canonically lesbian
Is this pure coincidence, a simple nod to said character or is Mihoyo actually giving us a character based on a canon lesbian from one of their other games?
>>
>>3502511
A lot of the characters look like other characters so you should ignore dumb claims based on what people with similar looks are doing in the other game.

Baal, Kokomi and Sara were just announced, and the 2.1 beta starts in a couple days. Highly likely they're coming next.

I was hoping that Thoma and that catboy whatever is name is would be next so I'd be able to save. The three male focused banners one after another when the game started might have been annoying but at least I was able to get the girls that came out right after without any issue because of how much primos I had after those three months. I'm right in expecting that Sara is going to be a 4 star that'll debut with Baal then I'm probably going to skip Kokomi since the BaalSara pairing is far more important.
>>
>>3502511
This is said character, her name is Yae Sakura. Yes, she's canonically lesbian but I don't think that's enough to conclude Genshin's Yae is a lesbian. They probably just liked Sakura's design and wanted to reuse that in Genshin, similar to Raiden Shogun and Raiden Mei from Honkai.

They have more eyes on them in Genshin now than in Honkai and the company is still based in China, so I don't think they'll be as blatant as some of the material they have for Sakura, like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHMO3OQkoEQ, especially since there's no characters based on Kallen in Genshin yet.
>>
Anyone find Hamayumi or it's blueprint's location yet? Pretty sure the only two missing is that and the Inazuma gs.
>>
>>3502511
Yae had her lesbian nun girlfriend in both GGZ and Honkai, but said girl isn't present in Genshin. It's the exact same name and design, but her personality seems actually different, so sadly I don't think she'll be gay.
>>
>>3502536
Nice to see hear/she might be a four star.
>>
>>3502688
Mihoyo's been having fun putting Honkai expys in Genshin.
Yae Sakura=Yae Miko
Herrscher of the Void=Unknown God
Raiden Mei=Raiden Shogun
We also know that the pyro archon's name is Murata, as in Honkai's Murata Himeko. Plus some of the male characters look a bit like genderbent Honkai characters if you squint.
>>
>>3502688
>>3502800
That Honkai has a whole subplot about exploring parallel dimensions and shit, which Dvalin was explicitly referenced in once, makes me think less "Expies" and more "AU Counterparts."

Only met Genshin's Yae the once so far, but yeah, she certainly seemed pretty far removed from Honkai's tragic siscon.

Bow seems interesting. Guess Yae's involvement wasn't ever a planned crossover.
>>
>>3502861
Doesn't really matter at all since she's just an easter egg sort of character and not a proper story thing.

>>3502861
She had /u/ potential with a few HZD girls. But they're not coming with her so it's kinda irrelevant.

I would never have thought she would be the first crossover character. Hopefully the next one is something yuri friendly.

Think I narrowed in on another narrative issue I have with Genshin. The vast majority of the characters are written as being just so... nice. It gives the world kind of a saccharine feel to it that's honestly pretty boring.

I mean, you have a point. But I'd like more morally ambiguous characters that aren't annoyingly obtuse.

Or at the very least, gave them more of a story presence compared to the generically "Nice" characters. I miss Zhongli's "God doesn't know the value of a dollar" shtick.

I don't mind the characters being nice, I just wish the character quests had actual character interaction instead of making you sit through a bunch of conversations with NPCs you'll probably never see again for over an hour. The best two quests in the game were the Fischl/Mona one last year and the Klee one not that long ago because the characters actually interacted with each other. This complaint is a dead horse that's been beaten over and over again but considering how Yoimiya's quest was mostly about two guys we'll never see again that dead horse clearly hasn't been beaten enough yet.
>>
>>3503707
>the Fischl/Mona one last year
God, yes. That questline was great. Fischl and Mona both have actual personalities, and the conflict with Scaramouche actually seemed like it was setting something up long-term. Would really love to get more Mona & Fischl focus.
>>
>>3503693
Didn't realize till you said it, but this is also part of my problem with the characters in the game. Everyone is too overly nice, and such a huge part of the dialogue when interacting directly with any character is them dishing out praise to the MC.

The characters feel less like real people with their own motivations, and more like attractions in a theme park that was built especially for you. Clearly they've got their own unique backstories and motivations, but the moment the traveler comes into the picture it all goes out the window.
>>
>>3503702
I guess they have to make them likable so people will roll for them Childe's quest I wonder how they are going to twist Baal and Signora
>>
>>3503707
I disagree. It is pretty dumb to have a bunch of characters from a city apparently know and interact with only each other. Yoimiya is an artisan whose entire backstory revolves around how she is a huge part of the community and her family works very hard to make their regular citizen customers totally satisfied. Regular people are exactly who her quest line should be about dealing with, not leaving her core identity behind to go hang out with some other important person. You could have merged Ayaka and Yoimiya's quests but what would that accomplish besides watering down both of their characters and their roles for the sake of shipping content?

Klee's entire story (that is, her whole character, not the story quest) is nonsense, mostly because her mother is the exact problem with what you're asking for, someone who just knows and has interacted with everyone for no conceivable reason, to the point that she's the reason a bunch of characters even do the things they do. It's dumb that she spends all her time with the knights and not the dozens of other kids in the city, especially when it's not the normal knights, but people like Jean and Kaeya who should be busy actually doing shit. It's extra dumb that she randomly knows Razor who apparently doesn't even know Amber, the knight that spends her day job going around the wilderness.

I get that it means more goggle fuel, but really I think it's best left as the, "Oh yeah, I know X, they seem..." voice lines rather than trying to pull playable characters out of their own place in the story so they can interact with other playable characters. All that does is completely disconnect them from the world.
>>
>>3503782
Yeah, "Theme Park" is a good way to put it. Like, it makes sense for the Traveler to be fairly well-known and respected for what they've accomplished, but for a setting in which photography isn't yet that wide-spread, that absolutely /everyone/ is universally familiar with them, even when they've only JUST arrived in a new location, feels really forced. Game could really benefit from an event-based dialogue system (people recognizing you or not based on story progression), but maybe that's unrealistic for as big a game as Mihoyo's building here. And even that wouldn't fix the issue with the main story characters treating you as the savior they've longed for literally the day they met you.
>>
>>3503788
>Baal
Divine Homunculus crafted by Asmoday's hand to fulfill the empty electro seat. She garnered Asmoday's Ire by subtly breaking out of her intended role cause the ultimate cycle in Genshin is the one Kharen'riah experienced and Ba'al cares too much for Inazuma to let it be destroyed. Thus disrupting the famed love of cycles attributed to Electro
>Signora
Something something nothing. She just becomes softer since there's all of 3 ladies with the fatui until they're all revealed.
>>
>>3503790
The way it is right now is simply worse than them hanging out with other playable characters, the way they will stop whatever they're doing to please someone they've just met is simply moronic. It would be way better if they ended up interacting with other characters from where they're from than jerking off the traveler.
And no, they shouldn't be hanging out with generic kids just because other characters should be busy(if they're busy they shouldn't be wasting time with us either).
It's fine for them to interact with generic NPCs, but the game is certainly lacking in interaction between playable characters, googles or not.
>>
I just started. There's not really that many characters to roll for at any given time huh?
Which ones are the /u/ ones to go for right now? I have Mona.

>>3503806
Eula. Ganyu and Keqing is also a really popular pair though they haven't actually interacted in the story yet. Right now though I'd just save for when Raiden and Sara come out.
>>
>>3503806
Ning and Yanfei from Ayayaka's banner but saving up for Raiden and Sara is probably a more practical move. Get a support/sub dps archon with another personal battery for her.

>>3503808
Isn't Keqing the only one of those 3 I can actually attempt to get?

Correct and even then it's not consistent. Keq's one of the og 5stars so she's like Mona in terms of acquiring despite once having a specific banner.

You could roll for Jean because she's in the standard banner. Hopefully she'll get her own banner at some point like Keqing did.

Although the standard banner is pretty awful to roll on since there's no guarantee you'll even get a character. It's pretty baffling Jean didn't get a banner during the windblume event.

Yeah, the standard banner is horribly. I'd really advise against dumping your primos on it, and save for any future limited character you like instead.
I have a friend that whaled like mad on the standard banner for Jean specifically, and let me tell you, the results were not good.

Baal and her wife are coming together on the same banner after all!?

It's the plot twist I never saw coming. Was 100% expecting Mihoyo to try to boost Kokomi's sales with Sara.
>>
>>3504000
Now THAT would be a banner worth dumping all my savings (which is not a lot) in
>>
>>3504000
So semi-confirmed? Lumie's one of the more consistent leakers so...up to Mihoyo whether it changes. Ba'alxSara would be a busted banner and I could see it, especially if Sara shakes up the meta as much as speculated. Whales/Archon lovers/people who like Baal end up getting her (1st) wife and likely maxing her stars leading to Benny being usurped. Koko being support Hu or close to it is enough of a sell on its own.
>>
>>3504000
Now that's cute, I don't know Mihoyo's stance on shippers but you'd think they wouldn't want to add more fuel to the Ba'al x Sara fire
>>
>>3504005
Lumie's been right about banner info before, so I trust it to be right unless Mihoyo changes their mind.

Yeah, Kokomi's jellyfish is looking really busted, on top of also healing, so I guess Mihoyo expects her sales to be good without the boost. I guess they're right, because I know I'm starting to want to roll on her too when I should save up for Miko next.
>>
>>3504035
Supposedly Prototype Amber's a decent budget option for Koko as well. That'd definitely gives kind of a passive reason to roll her. Not like the three cat choices are particularly good. I kinda hope that the cat is on Ba'al's weapon banner as kind of a prep. Not happening since that'd be nice for us.
>>
So Yae controls the publishing house we're a gopher for on top of being a head shrine maiden and Ba'al+Sara's wife. Even roped a shrine maiden in to being an unofficial beta for some publishing house drafts. How long til Yae begins making her moves to flood Inazuma with yuri works?
>>
>>3504000
Damn it, I'm going to have to spend money on this game after all. There's no way I can get Yoimiya and Baal when their banners are so close together.
>>
>>3504065
Call me a SakuKallen purist, but if Kallen doesn't exist in Genshin I'd rather just view Miko as celibate.
>>
>>3504077
She might? If her nun look is the typical look then Fontaine, Mondstat, or Snezh are the potential places for it. Considering Inazuma's apparent history with Fontaine I'd hazard a guess and say there for Kallen. Unfortunately Fontaine's like a nation away and we're probably hitting up Sumeru next after Inazuma.
>>
>>3504077
>>3504080
Given their relation in Honkai, makes me wonder if a Kallen in Genshin might have some link to the "Unknown God."

Yes, some of the lore currently available and the domain descriptions reveal Koujo's a tengu clan or some such. I forget specifics but it reveals the Koujo are tengu and that they allied with Shogun-sama. Just like the fox envoys and rarely remembered oni.

I see, so she's kinda like an adepti of Liyue (Ganyu and Yanfei) right?
that would also explain why her loyalty and devotion to the Shogun go above and beyond that which would be expected of a mere human
all around seems like a pretty strong ship if you ask me, hope it gets as much fanart as Ganyu x Keqing and Beidou x Ningguang I'd love it if Mihoyo teased it beyond just character voicelines like with most ships

Yeah Sara and Ba'al's pretty solid in terms of starting couples, especially straight out the gate like this. I do kinda hope Koko's voicelines/stories mention some stuff about her looking up to Raiden-sama before the decree(s) happened.

I don't even remember what Yoimiya's story was about. I was asleep for most of it.

That said, if I end up pulling Yoimiya in the process of getting maxing out Sayu, I'm making an Overload team with Fischl and Capt. Beidou and no one will stop me. There's gonna be more explosions than a Mr. Torgue expo.

>I wonder how they are going to twist Baal
This is just something I came up with off the top of my head and I doubt it'll actually go down like this, but what if the reason Baal is pursuing eternity so badly is because since she's a goddess and Sara is a mortal there will eventually come a time when Sara will grow old and die while Baal will still remain living. So everything she does is so she can spend eternity with Sara without having to worry about lifespans or anything like that. I doubt the real reason is going to be anything as exiting or romantic, but if by some miracle I hit the nail on the head I can see the pairing being the most popular one in the game.
>>
>>3504727
There's some lore about the tengu in Sara's skill descriptions. Such as the tengu being loyal to the shogun, and habitually chanting praises to her. But there's also this.
>Sara departed from her people, the tengu, and also temporarily lost her faith in the Tenryou Commission. But once the clouds over her heart cleared, she found her own lightning anew.
I'm hoping the reason she found her way again has something to do with Baal. If she departed from her people, I would also assume that her loyalty to the shogun isn't just simply because of her being a tengu.

My hypothesis is that Ba'al had an old girlfriend who was so hellbent on getting a Vision (and Ba'al wouldn't give her one for whatever reason) that it drove her nuts and she eventually left. So Ba'al is rounding up people's Visions because they're painful reminder of that old girlfriend who still hasn't come back.

That's it, in my mind Sara is the one that braided her hair for her. 100% canon to me.

As the archon who has abandoned all mundane delusions in pursuit of her ideals, her hair might be the last thing on her mind.

>>
Why are you all talking like all these cool new characters are coming soon?
Doesn't Genshin get like one banner a month to pull from?
>>
>>3505255
Because Baal and Sara are the coming up next after Yoimiya and they're also the ones most likely to be relevant to our interests. Ayaka and Yoimiya are nice but boring.
>>
>>3505256
I thought there was another one after Yoimiya. Won't we get Baal and Sara in like October?
>>
>>3505257
Nope. Unless Mihoyoyo wants to pull the rug out from under us, we're getting them first of September, which line up with giving Yoimiya about 20~21 days for her banner if Ayayaya ends on the ninth. Plus anniversary+Baal being an archon is big selling point coupled with rumours/speculation about Sara being meta change up just feeds into that.
>>

>https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E6axzVFWEAQhKgt.jpg:orig
Here's a calendar of all the patch dates for genshin. There's two banners per patch, with each one lasting 3 weeks.

I originally expected Baal to come in October or November, too. In hindsight, releasing her next makes more sense because then we have Baal+Sara as the big anniversary banner. The fact that they're pairing her with Kokomi is what makes me suspicious of future banners. We have 3 more patch dates in 2021, and there's exactly 3 confirmed 5* characters (Baal, Kokomi, Miko), so I really would have thought that they'd space them out more.
>>
>>3505274
Is Miko confirmed 5 star or are they still speculating cause I could see Miko being like Ganyu type situation that comes out later after a break up. Although with the Signora boss raising expectations Miko or Signora seem like top choices outside of reruns. Could see the anniversary giving us one of the og 5stars for free or as like culmination of event currencies

Bow maybe? I fear if she's cat she'd be similar to Lisa, though I'd lose my mind if she was an on-field dps like Klee.
>>
>>3505502
>>3505504
I just don't seem them putting out two electro bows in such close succession. It's not like Lisa causes much friction, if she's projectile based instead of bolts and her skill and burst aren't just AoE's she'd be fine. Hell, even if they are AoE but they're not just rings they'd be fairly different. Like if the skill is a forward cone and the burst is a large frontal beam. I also feel like people don't consider that the elements aren't all that function-locked. Like it's entirely possible for her to end up being some sort of hybrid healer like Qiqi or Jean, it's not like healing is limited to hydro.

I expect her kit will be built around the idea of a priestess or whatever kitsune heritage she is likely to have. So I wouldn't be surprised to see her normal attack be throwing electro-charged ofuda or something.
>>
>>3505409
Not them, but maybe they were hoping for some gay stuff involving Ayaka's mom that could then be subsequently projected onto her. Personally think the twist midway-in works perfectly well for her character, but I can kinda get the idea of disappointment, from a /u/ perspective?

>>3505497
If they were go all the way with the reference, Sword. Though from what little we've seen of her thus far, Catalyst does seem the most logical.

I enjoyed it, though I wish she had decided to follow in her mother's footsteps and gone to the festival as "Tsubaki" in the clothing that was prepared and one of the masks. I guess it would have been a lot to prepare an alternate model for a couple minutes of quest at the end of the storyline though.

I mean, I wasn't expecting too much, but it certainly wasn't "Oh, 'Tsubaki' is actually just a nickname Ayaka's mom gave herself." Does she know how much of a pain in the ass securing that silk was?!

At least Ayaka wasn't acting against her own interests like Eula was, so there's that.
>>
>>3505655
I mean the point was that she personally really admired the idea of being normal and realizing that her mother was also the same as her but never really succeeded in doing the things she wanted to do gave her the confidence to stop trying to live up to an idealized version of her mother and come out of her shell a bit to seize the chance to ask (you) to go to the festival with her. The whole thing was basically just an excuse to spend time with (you) on a normal day out.
>>
>>3505287
Well, reliable dataminers have said the game files list her a 5-star. I'll take it as confirmation, they've been right about the other characters, including Baal's weapon being polearm of all things.

>>3505497
She's supposed to be catalyst. There's also been images going around of a new catalyst that looks like a kagura suzu, which is a tool used in rituals and such. Perfect for a shrine maiden.
>>
>>3505763
Fumetsu Gekka or a different cat? I figure different, any info on it beyond looking like a kagura suzu?
Also oof I might have to skip Yae if Signora shows up before her. Baal, Koko, and possible Hu rerun are demanding all my primos

Fumetsu Gekka is Kokomi's weapon. I'm talking about this one. There's no other info on it available yet though, and it doesn't have a model yet either hence the low res image.

Ugh, with Signora thrown into the mix too the upcoming banners are all looking way too stacked. I almost wish mihoyo would give me a break by throwing in a surprise male 5-star so I can safely skip and save. It already sucks that I'll have to skip Kokomi out of loyalty to Miko.

Sick I'm loving these Inazuma weapons. That the Inazuma gs? Hopefully it's good for Beidou so I can give Eula WGS.
Right? Signora being a weekly is a v nice surprise though it really hammers in that downside of back to back lady 5stars. Only reason why I'm going for Koko is decent hydro setter for electro shenanigans. I do worry that they won't have Signora be cryo cat

Her story (assuming its hers) seems to imply that she's the inverse of Childe and normally only uses her delusion with her actual vision acting as the phase 2 backup when her hand is forced (I also imagine that her phase 3 will be full blown return to roots Witch form, much like Childe's was Foul Legacy, which was part of his roots). The playable character seems to largely be based on what a character uses for "normal" combat (Childe uses his vision not the delusion, Baal (do we just call her Ei now?) uses her spear not the archon sword) so if the above is correct her playable version would stick to the cryo delusion.

Haven't heard that before, where's it come from?

Her playable character is labeled as "Raiden Shogun." It's easy to forget since the whole thing sounds like a title, but Raiden is an actual name she goes by, not just part of the shogun title.

Funny how both she and the Pyro Archon go by the last names of their Honkai counterparts.

> It's easy to forget since the whole thing sounds like a title, but Raiden is an actual name she goes by
I'd assume in this context "raiden" is part of her title and literal, not a name. She's the Raiden Shogun (the Shogun of Thunder and Lightning) the same way Morax's title is Rex Lapis (the Lord of Stone), it's just that the same Raiden (雷電) can also be a name and is used as one in Mei's version. Actually looking it up, Zhongli says as much:

>The Electro Archon, Baal — and just as the people of Liyue preferred to call me Rex Lapis, she too goes by another name among locals in Inazuma.
>Um, Paimon thinks we've heard that one before. Uh.. Rai... Raiden?
>That is the case. And since Raiden is also the Shogun of the Inazuma Bakufu, people call her the Raiden Shogun.
So it's just something that the people address her as, like they address him as Rex Lapis. I'd also argue that it being able to follow a determiner i.e. "the Raiden Shogun" doesn't really make much sense if raiden is a name unless it's part of dynastic line where you're specifying that it's the shogun that is a Raiden (like "the Ming Emperor, Hongwu") in which case you'd expect Raiden to still only be some kind of non-specific surname or something which she is just part of. Like it would sound really awkward (if her name were Mei) to call her "the Mei Shogun".

Her datamined namecard (Raiden Shogun: Enlightenment) description reads:
>不仅是影,也不只是将军。留一只雷曜之眼观照自己,方能得始终。
>Not simply Ei, and not merely the Raiden Shogun. Observe yourself also with one stormy eye, and you will someday reach a breakthrough.
Ei (影) being a kan-on reading of the character for shadow and Japanese name. Since "not only a shadow" doesn't really make much sense here, and Chinese speakers also seem to be interpreting it this way,
https://ngabbs.com/read.php?tid=27784257&rand=693t
I'd say it's probably not a mistranslation (especially when it's so close to Mei)

Ah, got my wires crossed it seems. For whatever reason, I remembered him likening Raiden to his alias of Zhongli, rather than Liyue's preferred Rex Lapis. Though there is still a distinction made between "Raiden" and "Shogun."

>Since "not only a shadow" doesn't really make much sense here
I dunno, I could kinda see it, based on what little we know about her character so far. But if Chinese speakers are taking it as a name, then it's probably a safe bet that's what it is.

Foul legacy's apart of his history? I suppose in reference to the time he stayed in the abyss. If the pyro witch=signora thing ends up being confirmed that'd make sense. I'd ultimately hope for her Q being able to switch her element since, up until recently, everyone pegged her as cryo. Would also help set the stage for the twins though I'd rather she not suffer for being a prototype to a mechanic. If she's solely cryo cat then hopefully she's a good setter.

>That the Inazuma gs?
I think that's an early design for the Mistsplitter, though I could be wrong on that. The image is from a while back, and you can see that the bow looks slightly different from what we got too. Does japan have greatswords to complete the set? An Odachi would probably qualify as one..?

>(do we just call her Ei now?)
Yeah, no. There is absolutely no way in hell I'm ever calling her this.

Odachis were/are two-handed katanas, so yeah they'd be the equivalent to greatswords. That said you're probably right about that being beta-mistsplitter. The craftable gs is one for example, so they aren't against doing such a thing.

It's far from perfect, but it fulfills my niche of wanting to explore a big open world with a team of cute girls. It helps that Liyue and Inazuma actually do look really good, more so than most other places you'll find in games like it. If a similar game gets made that actually delivers on the yuri while having much more tolerable ways of making your characters stronger then I'll have no problems leaving Genshin for it.

It's been a while since I've done any story-related stuff in Genshin, but it feels like Lumine is way more no-nonsense, or at least seems more neutral good in Inazuma judging by her dialogue choices. Maybe I'm misremembering, but has the story dialogue always cast her this way?

Apparently Baal has a placeholder passive that says she cannot participate in cooking.

I hope that she actually really can't cook. Though maybe not as a passive, because I prefer something useful taking up the last slot with how controversial her kit seems to be right now. But I hope she can't cook.
