Genshin Impact Gacha-of-the-Wild All

Does the 90 wish pity pull for the event banners carry over between banners? Was looking through the event character pull history in-game and it lumps them together. I'll never hit 90 on one event banner, but if they carry over, it would be good to time the 90th on an event banner with a 5 star I'd want.

Anyone else been doing the Wishful Drops event? Good way to get extra XP - if you can handle the boss fight that's basically a reworked Oceanid fight.

Yup. I've been dropping most of my resin into it the last few days. I'm not short on books right now, but I figure it's a decent investment for later and a nice excuse to break up almost two weeks farming the same domain in hopes of one day lucking upon a Viridescent Venerer circlet with a Crit main stat for my Venti

Yes. Pity carries over to banners of the same type. So if you rolled a few times on the Venti banner, that pity carries over to the current Childe banner and every subsequent limited character banner. The standard and weapon banners each have their own separate pity counters.

Edit: Also, there's something called soft pity that kicks in around... 70 rolls? Someone here can probably correct me on the exact number. Once you hit the soft pity cap, every single roll has an increased chance of giving you a 5* until you hit pity. That's why on the previous page, you can see that Tomato and I got up to slightly over 80 rolls a few times, but never all the way to 90. You'd have to be extremely unlucky to need all 90 rolls for pity. It seems like the average is somewhere around 75-80.

Event banners carry over onto the next event banner- so if you were wishing on the Venti banner, the pity carries over to the current one with Childe and Rosaria.

The normal banner is counted separate. Same with the weapon banner. Any wishes made on those don't carry over to any other banners. But if you wish 90 times on either you're guaranteed a 5-star.

If you go to the wish page you can also click on History on the bottom left, it'll bring up all wishes you've made on that banner (new wishes take an hour or so to show up). You can count back to see how many wishes you've made since your last 5 star or 4 star.

Edit: I think I read that soft pity kicks in at 75. If you haven't gotten a 5-star, you now have a 1 in 5 chance of getting it on wishes 75-89. And if you're very unlucky to not get it on those, the 90th is a 5 star. Once you get a 5 star any pity starts over from scratch, of course.

Got it. Thanks.

Cool got my primogems. This update looks interesting too.

I've been making some progress lately- but mostly in exploring, and the Spiral Abyss. I've got a ton of story quests I've been avoiding. I got to level 5 of the Abyss- that's where they start making you choose two parties to fight different paths. I was surprised how well I did... well Xingqiu and Rosaria basically carried one party of 4, and Bennett and Jean carried the other.

After getting my Abyss rewards for floors 4 and 5, I made some wishes and now have Fishel. I'm thinking of leveling her up ASAP, and maybe upping the Traveler and/or Noelle for future Abyss levels.

Or should I hold back on that and save the XP for when AR40 hits and I can start raising my main party members to 80?

Here's my current characters and levels. 70 is currently my max level at AR35.

Are you using Rosaria as carry DPS (that is, the character doing the auto attacking while abilities are on cooldown), or as a cryo support?

Especially if you're using her as your main carry DPS then leveling Fischl will be a great addition, giving you very easy access to superconduct reactions which shred physical resistance, which will be a nice boost to Rosaria's auto attack damage output.

Likewise, if you're using Jean as your carry and Rosaria as a cryo support, same deal -- add Fischl to that team and the superconducts those other two will the triggering will amp up Jean's physical damage auto attacks.

As far as general leveling strategy goes, I'd focus on building characters to give you good options for single team setups before worrying too much about trying to build up two fully effective Abyss teams. The rewards from the Abyss are nice (especially early on), and it's a very fun endgame activity, but most of the game only asks you to have one team, so focusing on what will give you a good variety of strong single team compositions will unlock a lot more fun ultimately (particularly when it comes to being able to take on the high level domain challenges for artifacts, talent books, and weapon ascension materials). And then eventually as you keep leveling characters to improve your single team composition variety, you'll likely find that you've got some solid options for two teams as a result.

For the time being, I'd recommend that you be sure to save enough exp books so you can level your main carry to 80 as soon as your world level goes up -- focusing your early leveling resources on the character that takes the majority of your field time will give you the biggest bang for your buck for both survivability and damage output. If you've already been using Rosaria that way, then that's who I'd suggest UNLESS you're planning to roll for Eula in 1.5. Eula will (very) likely be stronger as a physical DPS carry, so if you're planning to use her, then you'd probably want to build Rosaria more to be a cryo support, which means she can stay at 70 for a while longer.

(Worth noting, though, that 80 is kind of a magic number -- past that costs a LOT more, and really isn't necessary to handle even the toughest combat challenges in the game. Sure, getting a character or two to level 90 will make them very strong, but it's not necessary at all. For example, I've only got a single character at 90/90, and only my carries have even done the ascension to make them 80/90 rather than 80/80, since that lets me level their talents further. If you're interested in learning more about efficient leveling investment, this reddit post is pretty solid.)

But, as long as you've got books banked to get your main carry to 80, I'd pick leveling priorities based on who offers the most improvement and variety when paired with your already leveled characters. Since you've already got two GREAT healing options leveled with Jean and Bennett, thankfully that means you can focus on supports and potentially a second carry.

With that in mind, I think leveling Fischl would be a GREAT choice. She's a VERY strong reaction support and energy generation support, and deals a lot of damage too. On top of that, you only really need to level her skill since that's where most of her damage comes from, so she's cheap to make effective. Aside from giving you a great superconduct comp like I was discussing before (Rosaria, Fischl, Jean, plus one more -- probably Xingqiu most of the time from your current lineup), she's a strong component of other comps you might want to try in the future.

After that, out of your current character lineup I'd probably level Xiangling next. She's a VERY good burst damage support as long as you deal with her energy issues. She works very well in a team with Bennett and Xingqiu, since Bennett will help with her energy issues and amp up her damage output and running her burst at the same time as Xingqiu's will deal wild amounts of damage thanks to the vaporize reaction. With your currently line up you'd probably run Sucrose as the fourth (especially once you can get her a four piece VV artifact set), and use either her or Bennett to auto attack, depending on how you've leveled them. Rosaria as a cryo support or Fischl would also work well, although you'll get a bit more dilution of reactions that way. (If you roll a Chongyun at any point, he makes a GREAT fourth member for this team, since his skill will convert auto attacks to cryo, letting Bennett auto attack and constantly trigger freeze, melt, or vaporize reactions.)

As for Noelle and the Traveller, that's tricky. I'd probably pass on Noelle -- as fun as she is to play, she doesn't really work easily with a lot of higher end teams, and you really need to build your whole comp around feeding her energy. As for the Traveller, that's going to be more a question of how F2P you intend to stay. They're a solid jack of all trades, and in geo form they're not too bad as a carry. The main benefit of leveling them is that for leveling one character you get multiple element options, but in most cases other characters will do better in those elemental slots -- for example, you've already got Sucrose and Jean, so you've really not got a lot of reason to use Traveller in anemo mode.

Anyway, if you're looking for a second carry in your current lineup, even if you are intending to stay entirely F2P, I'd maybe just consider leveling auto attacks for Jean and/or Bennett to be both carry and healer. While neither of them is ever going to be the strongest carry, consolidating that role in with your healer role is a pretty solid choice as a F2P player, and they're very capable in that respect. You also have Razor, but he's another physical focused DPS, and since you've already got Rosaria leveled, it would maybe be better to hold out for carry who does stronger elemental damage to give you more varied capabilities. (Other than Eula, most of the five star carries deal most of their damage as their element. There are also a few strong non-physical our star carries that you might roll, including Ningguang and probably the upcoming Yanfei as well -- she's kind of a four star version of Klee, and fire carries in general are strong and versatile.)

Yep, Rosaria is doing most the auto attacking. I'm using Crescent Pike and the 4 piece Gladiator's Finale. (I'm surprised how easy it was to kit her out like that, when the rest of my group is just using what ever I can scrape together. Jean's got the Prototype Rancour, Xingqiu the Iron Sting and Bennett has the Battlepass sword (forget what it's called)- because I'm using 3 sword users and those are the 3 four-star swords I've got.)

I was thinking that Fishl would be good to level up for the reasons you mention here, but I was also concerned that it was my bias for wanting ANY other bow user other than Amber that was pushing that reasoning.

As far as F2P, I did get the Welkin bonus, and wound up getting the battle pass too. They're both about to run out in a few days. I'm not sure yet if I'll be tempted to get them again. It'll be my willpower and how much the next banner calls out to me that will determine that.

Anyway sounds like I'll be leveling Fishl while trying to keep enough XP books for when I hit AR40 to get Rosaria up to 80. (I just hit AR37 today, so I've got a little bit of time to farm.)

Yeah, don't feel too bad about that. While Amber (like every character) can be made effective with enough investment and has certain compositions where she works well, that cost is high and the count is low.

If you're going to spend any money on the game, those are the ways to do it! They are SIGNIFICANTLY more cost effective than anything else you can buy.

F**K me. I just spent 5 single wishes in hopes that I could get a constellation on Rosaria or Fischl.

The 3rd wish went gold and now I have Tartaglia (Childe) on my account. I didn't realize I was that close to pity.

Then the 4th wish got me a C1 Fischl. One more and I'd be at C2 which is think is a big boon for her.

My first thought is I want to stick to the plan and get Fischl up and max Rosaria, then I'll figure out about adding Tartaglia later.

I haven't even done the quest that involves him yet, but I know that in the game he's a

Spoiler:

boss fight.

Yeah, honestly, I wouldn't be too upset unless you were really hoping to save your pity for someone next patch. If fact, if you beat pity (ie, rolled him anywhere before 70), that's a pretty good pull, despite him maybe not being the most popular among min maxer types.

For my money he's quite fun and unique, and while he maybe doesn't have the wild damage ceiling that some of the "hypercarries" (Ganyu, Hu Tao, Diluc, etc) have, I was actually tempted to roll for him just for the unique play style. But, since I've already got C6 for Fischl and Barbara and I'm not too interested in Rosaria (I've already got a reasonably leveled Kaeya at C3), I held off to go big on Eula's banner.

The great news is that you've already got excellent characters to build comps for him. Childe-Xiangling-Bennett is a very strong comp, where interestingly even though Childe is technically your "carry" since he'll be on field auto attacking, a TON of your damage is coming from the fact that he lets every hit from Xiangling's burst get vaporized. Throw in Rosaria for Freeze/Melt CC shenanigans, Sucrose with VV for grouping and debuffing, or Fischl for just tons of extra damage and you've got one hell of a team. And if you ever roll Beidou, pair her with Fischl and you can do this kind of nonsense:

So I finally got around to playing through the latest story quest, what a reveal! I haven't had a ton of time to play lately but the quest certainly has revived my interest to learn more about the story.

I'm so far behind on story quests. I've just been enjoying running around and finding chests and the collectables to upgrade the statues and doing bosses and domains when I need to get stronger.

I started advancing the quests I was on this weekend and found out the identity of the "darknight hero" and then next got introduced to Xingqiu, even though I've had him as a character for ages.

hmm, I'm up to 70 pulls on event banners now. I'm torn between doing more to try and get Rosaria and more constellations for Fischl or stop and wait for Eula. I don't want the current 5star guy to pop and reset the pity.

I'd suggest holding off. The 4-stars can pop up anytime and have a somewhat regular rotation on rate ups. It would be better to up your chances for the harder to get 5-star.

Yeah, I'm at less than 10 pulls, so I'm tempted to see if I can get lucky and pull Rosaria with my 25 available wishes, but also not super motivated as I already have Ganyu and Chongyun built out, with Diona doing nothing. I don't really need more Fischl or Barbara constellations, either.

Since I just built Rosaria and Fischl, and plan to use them in my core party, I'm trying for constellations for them before this banner goes away- but that's because I want max benefit from the investment I've already made into those characters.

So, I got to max level of the battle pass today, plus re-upped on the Welkin moon, and did the 5th day of the box of wonders event, and with that had enough primogems for another 10 wishes. This 10 pull went gold- this is less than 20 wishes since I got Tartaglia. I got a second copy of Jean. And I also got a second Rosaria in the same 10 pull.

So I've got a C1 Jean now, and a C1 Rosaria. I was really hoping for a C2 Fischl, but I really can't complain. C1 Jean gathers up enemies faster when you hold down her gale blade, and then yeets them away with a 40% damage bonus- so that will be fun. And C1 Rosaria gets an attack speed and damage bonus for few seconds after she lands a crit. Oh yeah, more fun.

Yeah, while Jean's C1 is mostly good fun rather than a solid combat upgrade, it does get you closer to C2, which is a quite nice buff to her team utility. Getting another 5 star drop within 20 pulls, however, is SPECTACULAR luck regardless of who it is. (Okay, maybe a bit less so if it's Qiqi.)

Do remember though that since you lost the 50/50 on that pull, your next 5 star WILL be the banner character, so make good use of that guarantee if you can!

Oh, that's a very good thing to take note of. Thanks!

I got Tartaglia after less than 20 wishes. I didn't want him but at least I have a hydro character with some offense, now. I now find myself in need of some better bows, though.

New Web Event Up! Had trouble getting this to work in my desktop web browser, but I'm willing to use a different device for 120 primogems.

Every combination seems to unlock something different, but if you don't want to be surprised or bother figuring it out...

Also, here is a breakdown of the upcoming Serenitea Pot system.

I have to say there is a remarkable difference of character due to the voice in the Japanese version

Hence why I have the Japanese voices on when I play with English subs. Japanese VAs are always better than English for some reason. Same logic with anime. Can't stand watching dubs.

Weeb.

Also, fist-bump.

Really wasn't getting to which is better, just that unlike most characters, there is a remarkable difference in tone between English and Japanese for Yanfei. It got me thinking, which is the more "authentic" voice?

Apparently Yanfei's Japanese voice is the departure.

Just watched the Japanese and English versions. The Japanese just doesn't fit her. It is most certainly less annoying, but she appears as a young, petite framed, energetic female. Not a mature woman with years of experience, necessitating a voice with certainty. The problem here is her role as top legal expert is not a young persons position. The Japanese found the right voice for the job description, maybe a little less powerful than would be expected, while the English almost found the right tone for the character as shown on screen, but of course made it so energetic and excited that it's gratingly annoying, which is typical for any small female voice in English and needs to stop.

I had a good night in Genshin Impact last night. Finally opened the puzzle at the Luhua Pool and did the two domains inside. I reached AR40 when I completed the second, and got the last keys to unlock the last two Shrines of the Deep from doing these.

With AR40 reached, I instantly leveled Rosaria and Jean up to 80, along with Rosaria's weapon. They'll be carrying me until I can get the rest of my team from levels 60 to 70 or 70 to 80 depending on how far I want to take them.

I think now is the time to start trying to get the good artifacts instead of just using the best of what I've got. Wish me luck.

Congrats on AR40. I'm somewhat jealous of your Jean. She's been on the top of my off-banner 5* hopes for a while.

In case you're not aware, the artifact drop rates are significantly greater in the domain versions that unlock at AR45. Getting something more serviceable is reasonable, but I wouldn't go too hard until AR45.

Yeah, this is good advice. You might find people saying something like "don't do artifact domains at all until AR45!" and from a pure resin efficiency perspective they're not wrong, but given the sorry state my artifacts were in when I reached AR40, it would have been a lot less fun getting to AR45 if I hadn't done just enough to get some decent starter pieces (ie, probably mostly still purple pieces, with a few lucky orange drops, getting something close to decent main stats but not worrying about substats) for my core characters.

But, once you've done that, definitely save the hardcore artifact grinding for AR45. Until then, your resin will be much better spent on weekly boss kills, character ascension boss kills, talent books, and (if you have weapons worth leveling past 60 or 70) weapon ascension materials. (Or, in a pinch, exp books and mora from leylines, but those are such a bad deal at any AR that whenever possible I just wait for events, battlepass rewards, and open world activities to provide in that department.)
