Popular with girls and cats. In other words: with pussies in general.

@Ultamisia Just because BioWare themselves fucked that up as well doesn't mean artists should stick with it. ^^

Scummy and realistic aren't really contradictions, so I don't know whether that's even worth discussions. He is a piece of crap and, okay, such people exist.

It seems kind of unusual that a world with Teyvat's level of development would have rock artists in it though

As if they care. As usual with these games, the characters are completely detached from the world they run around in. Wait for all the inevitable event specials that don't fit anything at all. ^^

Personally I also found the later volumes not really enjoyable; or at least last time I caught up. But maybe that's just me, dunno ...

To be fair, he pícked most of his astronomy ideas from Pierre Louis Maupertuis, William Derham, Edmond Halley (who gave his name to the comet) and Johannes Hevelius.

That's generally how science works ;)

"Objective" means derived by fact, irrespective of opinion. Ie. you lay out the foundations of mathematics, then argue 1 + 1 = 2. Objectively true.

There's no objective truth in "killing is bad" (killing Hitler clearly isn't) or any other morale statement. Objective morale philosophies (Kant, utilitarism, etc) to my knowledge are all contentious and competing which as far as I'm concerned just shows that they aren't objective.

I know it's not applicable here, but with the somewhat rushed development I really want to say ... it got axed ;)

Now everything makes sense.

Or ... maybe ... not.

Different classmate. She's just collecting a harem of classmates' mothers.

Hopefully it'll actually go somewhere. The one-shot clearly says so, but ...

I'm always up for more Miss Himawari-Sunflower-san.

Hrrrm. Hopefully there'll be a reveal later on that shows she isn't just into it because she's already in pain anyway; that'd be disappointing.

Like this, there woldn't be jealousy (I think), because Anna is loved like their children

I wouldn't want to be considered a child of somebody who is intellectually and memory-wise at best my equal (on account of being the friggin' same person; that doesn't change just because she's a different name now). If anything, they should be considered sisters.

Life is suffering. But sometimes the suffering is worth it.

They pretty quickly started looking at Anna as "this other girl", eh? Don't even notice when they talk about her ... just back when she was still human ^^;

Why are the Japanese so into alpacas, anyway?

Aren't they pretty popular everywhere these days? Alpaca wool is kinda "trendy". Either way, I know Swabian and Bavarian alpaca farms and petting zoos. Clearly there some global alpaca fad going on ...

Except that you... can. You can literally use just guards and clear story content without vanguards or medics or whatever else.

Of course you can. As I said. But is that the kind of advice you'd give a new player who has only one guard character? The point was: that's enough. You don't need any more.

You can of course clear maps in completely ridiculous ways. Especially for the early chapters you don't even need to actually block any lanes, you usually can set up things to have enough DPS to kill everything without any block at all. Especially once you got all those crazy 6-star characters that make the game a snoozefest. But that's not advice; if you are at that point, you don't need to go on a forum to wonder whether your characters are enough.

Useful for someone to know who only has a guard is: if you want to clear the story content, that's more than enough. If you are struggling, then the problem is not that you don't have more guards, it's that you're missing some aspect of the mechanics.

This is untrue considering how people always joke about how Arknights is basically guardknights. Once you get higher rarity guards, they're basically the most OP class in the game. Once you have your 5/6 star guards leveled, you can pretty much have a team full of guards and clear most of the content. Examples of OP guards being Silverash, Hellagur, Blaze, Lappland, Specter, etc etc.

Yes, nice. But you still don't need them for the normal content. Try playing through normal content without vanguards or guards or healers or whatever else the situation requires - possible sometimes, but not orthodox strategy. Meanwhile, guards aren't necessary. That's not saying they can't be great. It's just saying they aren't necessary. Because, as I said, they aren't necessary.

Guards are pretty whatever for the normal content. There's probably no situation where you absolutely need to have one (vanguards can do as well usually), and if not, then Melantha is perfectly sufficient.

Anyway, for playing for the story the level barely matters in my opinion. ATK/DEF etc. don't actually scale that much. Getting some skills to Level 4 is useful and of course as stuff gets more difficult you sooner or later need some raw firepower, but especially for the first few chapters it's more about understanding what you're doing with your units.

I mean, random example - Amiya has 276 ATK at level 1, 320 at level 20, and 390 all the way at level 50 (all before promoting of course). It's not insignificant but it's rarely a decisive difference. This is not like an RPG where a Level 20 character is roughly 20 times stronger than a level 1 character; it just scales stuff a little.
