Sanitary Orderly Liddel was learning the trade of maintenance on the out door hole-in-the-ground latrines. The lime powder that is normally used to 'sprinkle' the pit, had not arrived. He, being of an inventive turn of mind, mixed petrol and diesel and used that. Dawn! Enter an R.S.M. pleasure bent! He squats on pole. Lights pipe, drops match. BOOOOOOOOM! There emerges smoke-blackened figure, trousers down, smouldering shirt-tail, singed eyebrows, second degree burns on bum
I mean that's fair for armies on campaign. Used to be they pretty much just shat outside their tents, which standards of hygiene of course did nothing to lessen the routinely hideous attrition from diseases.
If you DO have reliable sources of sufficient relevant element damages, sure. Which isn't exactly a given, and the way those dipshits are set up mostly just makes them obnoxiously and aggressively anti-fun to fight in general. The hammer guys in particular need to go die in a fire.
Bonus points if they're located somewhere inconvenient, can hard CC you off there and then reset their HP before you can make your way back to them.
Sucrose or Anemo MC is enough to clean the entire squad in one Q.
The little shits aren't hard to kill, obviously. It's just that you need to do it a LOT (have some more mask drops instead of arrowheads lol) and an awful lot of them are located somewhere inconvenient (and wont to get knocked off to somewhere even more so, like behind rocks or off ledges), and/or part of big Churl blobs that quickly get very tedious indeed to clear.
Actually I think my least favourite among the "basic" commonly-encountered Churls are the big shield bois, mainly because their constant yeeting themselves twenty meters off wherever is a pain in the ass for melee chars and often requires inconvenient repositioning for ranged ones. It all just makes things slow and tedious to get over and done with.
I did do full-circuit farming runs on both a few times. Then I looked at the amount of mats gained, eyeballed how much I'd still need (never mind now in the long run), and concluded pushing wood slivers under my fingernails seemed like a rather more fun prospect.
Even the damn Oceanid is preferable. It's RNG bullshit whether it throws tolerable waves at you but at least it drops mats reliably and you don't have to hunt it down in the ass-end of nowhere.
Full disclosure: I well-nigh stopped playing the game 'bout two months back when it dawned to me developing my mains further would require WAY too much farming of Fatui goon squads and Hillybilly archers for mats day in day out.
Seeing as how those are literally the most annoying shits in the game that I try to avoid fighting if at all possible, fuck that.
I rarely get the Support tag compared to Fast Redeploy which I'd probably have Gravel at Pot 40-50 if the game went that high. :(
Ya it's relatively rare. Which is why it's lowkey annoying to have Dobby well-nigh dominating it like Gravel does FR - she's please step on me mistresscool and all but I'd rather have the WAY more useful 5-stars sharing it. :/
Well one thing to note is 777ucky said maxing Tomimi was something he really regretted so yeah... probs someone you'd never use. Won't say no to operators with interesting skillsets though, whether they're actually useful or not.
I mean. Still more useful than Flamebringer. o3o
I got the Support tag today and got another Dobermann. :)
Dobie is to the Support tag what Gravel is to Fast-redeploy pretty much. :[
Okay, I've never commented in this thread before, but what the fuck did they do to Barbara's voice?! They massacred my girl! They took away all her gusto! My disappointment is immeasurable, and my day is ruined.
