From some of the early impressions, it looks like Ganyu is pretty strong. Setting her up with an energy recharge bow like the Favonious Warbow will let you spam her ult, which last a long time and has a huge AOE field.

It's also interesting that the 2nd stage of her charged shot doesn't need to hit an enemy to trigger the cryo AOE damage (you can aim at the ground to trigger), so you don't need to be all that accurate.

Where did you see the impressions? The only thing I saw so far was a megawhale on CN server with C6 killing Dvalin and Childe with her, but with the god rolls on his artifacts you could do it with Amber or Diona. I don't think he even used her Burst at all, just charged shots at his neck spike.

I guess miHoYo is looking for make 5 star chars really a great deal. Well, better than buffing Zhongli a 5 star every patch.

I still don't know why keep creating ice chars. How many ice chars the game have already?

Demone's video is from the test stage on the Asian server with whatever the stock artifacts are.

Chongyun is alright for a Cryo but the only other good Cryo are both 5*.

Fuck Diona. Drunk Cat is what she is. Drunk and useless.

-----------------

Ganyu is a Rocket Launcher. Her high base attack and high damage even with "okay" artifacts is ridiculous.

Along with the fact at C0 after a few ascensions she can get +20% Cryo dmg and Crit chance for free. 60% crit with the Cryo set.

C1 will give enemies a Cryo -15% RES debuff. And 2 energy per Lvl2 Charge shot.

C4 gives the Burst a increasing damage increase starting from 5% and capping at 25%.

Out of the gate this nobody secretary is very good and busted if completely whaled out.

I think I'll switch gears and pull for her and hope I can max out Noelle as well.

The 100% uptime of her Burst out of the gate is a gamechanger for me.

Looking forward to my Childe + Ganyu comp.

Charge shot was made for removing pigeons.



Elemental Burst seems pretty good. Lasts for 15 seconds and has a 15 second CD. With enough energy recharge, 100% uptime is possible. Melt combos all day.

Wow good to know, my interest on her suddenly is increasing.

Guys, do you think I'm cursed or something? How would you call a 2×10 pulls with Mona AND Goat? Does that mean that I'm stuck with GI for eternity? D:

Is that still alive
Dunno, played it for close to 1 and a half years then droped it. I had a crazy amount of characters in that game and still a huge amount of gems horded. But the Light and Dark characters was hard to get and kinda turned me off. I was also in a stage that all i had left to do was farming and do events when they appeared. Droped it when Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross came out, that i also just droped it last week. Sticking just with Genshin Impact now.


And Mission CocoGOAT Complete!


Still have 20k primos left that i will keep hording for the next banner that might interest me. F2P Life!

So I spent my 8000+primogems to try and get Ganyu...

I got Qiqi instead! Not too bad. Kinda sad that my Amos' Bow is just gonna sit there for a while, but Qiqi is one of the characters I actually wanted, so not too bad. Hopefully I can now save my gems and next pity for a character that I might want more badly than Ganyu.

It's sad when you didn't get exactly what you're pulling for, but Goddamn man, QiQi carries like there's no tomorrow. QiQi will keep your team alive no matter what.

She's also cute as F. Second best girl after Klee :3

Sucks, but not the worst that could happen. If you want a real feeling of power, level her up and give her that dragonspine sword in dragonspine. I only wish she had a unique charge attack with an effect like Jean.

(sacrificial sword is her real BiS weapon, if you have that)

Nah man, I'm not lewd for kindergarten girls haha. I just love how naive they are ( let's admit it, they are dumb xD).

It's also hilariously fun to play in a coop with a team of midgets xD
Everyone in Genshin is dumb outside 3 people.

Just tried her... actually not bad, the energy regeneration from her assigned bow makes her burst on for 100% of the time. Actually more than 100% 'cause I was able to cast it before it expired. I also always liked the baron bunny taunt, so I like her flower ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡ °) too. She seems strong enough, but she obviously has all the problems related to bows and she's "just" there to facilitate reactions. Switch in, burts, switch out.

The water trap, on the other hand, sucks ass.

All in all, I don't like her (hate waifus+not that useful for me), I'd like to beef up Noelle and see if it's true she's op, but I'd need 5 copies, so this banner is an easy skip for me.
