^it's fundamentally a failure to distinguish between the performance and the performer; which is at-best poor media literacy and at worst can very quickly take a turn to the outright creepy.

TBH given how long she's been a fixture of Liyue governement Ganyu's any tendencies would be pretty much public knowledge - and certainly the sorts of mortals who make it into a body like the Qixing in the first place will have snooped out such details long ago...

I'd rather have a paid pick your own 5* so I can finally get either Nightmare (heterochromia) or Sora (Idol). :(

You can get Nightmare from Recruit tho, she's the only one under Caster/Slow + Healing IIRC. Kind of "collection only" as her kit is rather self-contradicting :/

^Given you're talking about the equivalent of not shipping anime characters because their VAs aren't an item... reckon there are only awkward ways to formulate that.

This week's lineup from my Traveling Salesman is Black-Back Hound and Tiger-Striped Cat. I also have rocks for sale in my pot.

Mine's just the basic Jade-Eyed Cat and Northland Hound, plus a lot of various Subspace Boulders. :/

Bosses respawn every 3 or 4 minutes but you can't stay in the place, you have to teleport away for 3 minutes and then come back. In your adventurer book it says how long until it revives after you kill them... Omg it would be a literal nightmare if even normal bosses take one day to respawn xD I would never be able to lvl up my characters to 90 at that point.

Like what the hell. It literally never even occurred to me to check because well-nigh everything else in the game only refreshes daily or less, enemies in particular - and then it turns out the bosses have the same respawn rate as freaking lumber.
what is this i dont even ヽ((◎д◎))ゝ

...wait, bosses refresh every time you log out rather than just daily?!
Why am I only learning this by accident which definitely didn't involve logging off right on top of Cryovine or anything now...

Also probably not news to anyone at this point but the evergeens found high in Yueun Karst are also pines, which is a lot more convenient place to farm them than Arsefreeze Mountain.

Yeah and it's actually funny because she considers herself a newbie at love talk but she's the most perceptive character in the series lmao

The two are hardly mutually exclusive after all.

I wish I could help but my social fear is beyond comprehension.

Oh I'm just about allergic to co-op for various reasons, but mostly just really wanting to do stuff at whatever pace my current whim dictates ("there's a daily there and... hmm I wonder what's up that cliff?" *cue half an hour of rando exploration interrupted by making coffee*). But feel free to admire the stone collection in my Teapot an' stuff.

On an even more unrelated note playing around with(in) the Teapot reminds me I really should redo my Arknights base dormitories one of these days, esp. since they're all well short of their now fully upgraded Ambience caps >_>

On an unrelated note, at this rate farming wood is going to give me a carpal tunnel syndrome D:

Also, the baby ones get way too many I-frames for a freaking time limited fight.

The designers are definitely a little too enamored with timed stuff in general. Recurring nuisance in Honkai too; I don't much like that particular paradigm as it rather tends to stultify "challenge" into crude unga bunga DPS checks.

Tbh most of my operators I've gotten since playing AK have been sitting pretty doing absolutely nothing. I should really use them more instead of just using the "meta" units to clear stages.

I do try to 200% Trust them all so I try to get them to an usable level (which I define as SL6-7 and E1L50-60), so much of the time I'm actually bending over backwards to fit whoever I'm trust-farming ATM into clear strats. :P

...though this has the caveat that Ops already at 200% then get benched unless they're just too essential (Silverdaddy, Eyja and Gravel fall here a LOT), too fun (eg. Ifrit whenever an IFRIT LANE :exists:) or too convenient (eg. flagbearer Vanguards + Bagpipe, Ptilopsis) to leave out. Like I don't even remember when I last actually took Liskarm to a new stage - she was one of my starter pulls and did a lot of work early on...

Though if I can't stand an Op's visual design (or find their kit too troublesome to bother with, like poor Nightmare and Brawler Guards) they just get to earn their Trust idling in base. Leonhardt is a standout example because his default looks give me a skin condition - his new skin's much better so he's been promoted to the "will upgrade someday" list as his kit's fine. (As an aside this fate also befell my Kaeya in Genshin - he's consigned to eternal puzzle reserve and expedition duty because I loathe his character design.)

It's guarantee 6 star after all + I still don't have SilverAsh, Nightingale, Mostima, Magallan, Schwarz and Rosa. I was the most interested in Nightingale, Mostima, Schwarz and Suzuran.

In terms of sheer general utility I'd say Schwing Schwing ManSilverdaddy or Suzu. The former has stupidly useful passives, particularly the stealth purge, and a well-placed Truesilver Slash can carry you through some pretty dumb shit - there's a reason whole clear strats are built around its judicious application. he will also turn all males within half-kilometer radius into yaoi ukes Suzu a cute must proteccseems like quite the Swiss Army Knife from what I've seen borrowing her from friend support - besides the usual slow-supporter applications her second talent muscles in on Pramanix and Shamare's action, and her S3 with its area heal can get pretty silly in a tight spot. I got very good mileage out of that one in the last story stage of Chief Gavial, esp. against the High Priest and his bootleg Gorkanaut for ex.

Also honorary mention to Mostima. I understand she isn't considered all that good overall, but I've found her passive SP regen and slow shenanigans quite useful - and her S2 is plain cruel against stuff like Wraiths/Ergates or CC-boosted Crowny. Or just anything tough and dangerous that you'd like to lock down hard in a killzone before it reaches your ground frontline; eg. I threw it at some of the Club Elites etc. in Kaz Major to very good effect. plus Appliepie's waifu

Personally kinda tempted to buy the pack and grab either iizi moodo ketBlaze or Suzu. It's kinda more money than I'm usually willing to throw at an online game in one go - I could literally buy several full games with that sum after all - but I do legit like AK enough to seriously consider making an exception to my usual principles in these matters.


...oh and I accidentally a Mudrock just now. If I was the superstitious sort I'd be getting seriously worried over some sort of karmic backlash from all this ridiculous lucksacking I've been having over the past few days. O_o
