So Eula banner supposedly leaked, it's Eula/Xinyan/Xingqui/Beidou. They put Xingqui on every fucking banner it feels like. So sick of seeing him.

Anybody got a good daily ore farming route? I've recently found myself in need of ore pretty badly, and I've pretty much exhausted all of the spawns that I knew about and marked on my map.

*edit* - heh

Fastest way to earn Mora?
Stardust shop if you have a bunch of it. Otherwise, bounties, redeeming the anemo/geo crests at the shop, selling fodder artifacts (i wouldn't do this personally though).

Try asking the blacksmiths.
Yea that's what I've already marked on my map and farmed out. I remember seeing a "route" that you can just go and farm every 2-3 days on reddit before, but I can't find it now.

Yes. First, the montain top on Lyrie when that big earth monster is now respawing. There is that three wooden bridges where those couple with a girl asking for you to get out (the commission to make a tea), its just a reference point.

Second, the island where you fight 4 guardian. Next to those 4, respaw a loads and there is a little isle when the Sonic is there.

We have reputation jobs, but those are limited to weeks, so bear that in mind. Btw only do the Moonstad ones.

Ley lines aren't actually attractive reward wise...plus they cost resine. But with higher WR who knows.
You could also trade more for geo or anemo sigils if you have spared.

Other than that, can't remember much.

That's because it's another resource, just like arts or weapons or XP books. MiHo wants you to spend resin on gold too, like you do on anything else. Just because you have other means for getting gold, doesn't mean that it's the way you should earn it. Yeah, you can earn some here and there, but ultimately you should spend resin If you want to solve your gold problems. Like I previously said, you can easily make 600k in 1 day if you'll go all in on ley lines with your daily resin and some spare resin from previous days.

Well, I can say that the damn wolf didn't gave me anything for my Klee again, but who would care? 1.5 can't come soon enough.

Ah that explains it. Guess I'll see him when it's re-run.
Yeah, hopefully they make it available to new players since it had some interesting story elements, plus it has good character moments with Mona, Fischl, and Scaramouche.

Seeing him again and thinking about all the characters I already planned to skip makes me realize how much I hate this games' character design.

Oh btw, fun fact. I stopped receiving Ella Musk's commissions and now I'm getting the balloon escort every day.

Yep I've been in balloon hell for the past 3 weeks or so. That or the "defend the pillar" big brained quest. I'm curious to see between the two of us, who gets that Mondstadt quest first.

I actually got it once, a long time ago, before I knew about the achi. But something bugged and I didn't get the follow up.

Is this game worth playing?
You're asking the group of people that are still playing it daily, so I'm guessing you're going to hear a lot of "yea, BUT...." answers. If you liked BotW, you'll at least like the first 30ish hours of the game where you're exploring the world and doing battles and puzzles and stuff. Whether you stay around afterwards for the time-gated gacha stuff depends on how much you like the gameplay, systems, world and story I guess.

Supposed leaks about Kazuha (the red clothed Inazuma male).


This is the type of character I wish we'd see more of. Just wish his visual design wasn't so boring. I really like complex characters with different facets to their kit, and I like the idea of characters built with the idea of being support instead of "damage but not as good as Ganyu/Diluc/Klee".

I'm still holding out hope for a (female) pyro catalyst healer with an off field elemental skill. That would pretty much complete my team comp ideas. I guess Klee kinda works if you put max refine Prototype Amber on her, but her bomb things are just once and done, not a pulse or continuous effect like I'd prefer to apply Pyro, and her Burst is 60 energy and stops when she exits the field. So not ideal. I was hoping Yanfei would have an off-field effect, but hers is even worse than Klee's.

First character with double jump though, so that's something!
Not worth 8k gems.

Edit: You'd think so him being dressed in red. I thought Rosaria was a Fire Catalyst when the model was first datamined.

I'm gonna bet growth is a hydro+dendro reaction.

If I have to guess, it has to do with movement or deabilitation effects.

But be damn...dendro abysm mage? Would be one more to be difficult to face except with a pyro character.

Pyro is like a double edged sword vs. Dendro right now though. You do a ton of damage and inflict burning, but if you get that status effect of Dendro and stand in the fiery grass, you eat a ton of DoT damage very quickly. I hope they completely re-evaluate and rebalance the element altogether before it's playable (and buff Electro while they're at it).

Gonna risk a guess Abysm mage will inflict the same dendro curse as the shaman hilicurl, so he can be tagged with pyro enemies(namelly pyro archers and pyro mages).

If they don't balance its gonna be pretty obvious that players ER sucks in comparison with enemies.

Now we start the wait for 1.7 leaks.
There's gonna be a bunch more from 1.6 still, beta literally just started last night into today.

It looks like no Chasm or Inazuma for 1.6 though, so temper those expectations. Also, since Kazuha will be the first Inazuma banner, we're likely to get a rerun as the 2nd, so no Ayaka for at least 3 more patches.

Hang in there Ayaka-bros.
