I've played Genshin for a year and a couple of months, definitely grind it a lot during the summer out of school(about 3 months in between each school year). As soon as school starts I would miss up to 3 weeks of Genshin, and maybe even more. But I'm still doing fine! I just want to give my take on it because I see that a lot of people are worried about the gacha aspect of Genshin, and that it's going to be one of those games that baits you into spending money one way or another... but that's false. I highly appreciate Genshin Impact—especially the effort that MiHoYo put into the game, that's why engaging in this thread is important.

When I first started Genshin Impact, I had the 4 basic characters(Lumine, Lisa, Amber, and Kaeya) later on it changed into Lumine, Lisa, Kaeya, Noelle. Yet I was still able to make it passed Dragonspine; and keep in mind I was a newbie to all of this... so I didn't even know that characters had designated builds, that will make sure they play to the best of their abilities—yet with a level 40 Kaeya, I felt like a queen in my world! Kaeya was undefeatable, haha. Anyways, what I'm trying to say here is, if you have the energy to grind daily/occasionally you don't have to spend any money. Every character is good depending on the situation(exploration/bosses/enemies/mobs) and your build. Within a year and some months of playing Genshin, I was only able to get three 5-stars characters. I don't know about you, but that's pretty okay for a free to play person—in fact, some are even luckier(and maybe grindier) and were able to collect more than me.

Genshin Impact is definitely fun, enjoyable, and 100% free if you don't give in to temptation. It's definitely worth a try, but if you know you cannot control yourself then maybe don't play. And if you know that repetitive grinding gets you bored, I also don't recommend playing. Otherwise, it's amazing.

MHY in general uses an unobtrusive monetization model in their games that I like, or at least, can live with. Paying even a cent is entirely optional and basically just makes things faster - no limited character slots or inventory space etc. that can only be expanded with ye olde filthy lucre for example, unlike in any number of other MMOs I've played.

Honestly, I still have better luck in Genshin than most other gachas I play.
C1 Jean is very silly.

I hope the image I found of Kokomi and Sara gets uploaded. If not I can link to the page in a future post. I really like it since instead of a typical headpat Sara pats Kokomi's head with one of her wings.

Me too! c2 Yunjin which is perfect because it gives boost to the party and also a c1 Qiqi... Well, what can I say, I had too much ice already so I kinda wished this happen? because you know... Yae is more amusing! and she's coming very very soon!
still no Keqing ...one day... but I would feel stupid buying her skin if I don't have her

I also managed to get Ningguang to c6! and Noelle previously GEO SUPREMACY

Edit: The recent announcement of the more censored costumes (and they're according to Mihoyo, optional and not obligatory ) but combined with the recent leaks of even more censorship to many other characters Like Ningguang, beidou, and even Xiao is worrysome... Have you ever think, or crossed your mind that Beidou chest was too big??? that Ganyu's back was too much ? that you couldn't play thinking about xiao's tattoos? these are seriously too much, you can have an argument with Mona or Rosaria's original chest but we're going back to dark ages were skin = sinful.

While all of these changes point to China censorship and rumors suggest that only China will get them obligatory... I can't help but worry, I want to see how this evolves before deciding if I want to keep playing a game that was extremely safe to begin with, without even blood in it, and while I have their word that this is only optional, we've already experienced in multiple games and multiple times that if China was something destroyed, then no one gets to enjoy it ever.

What did everyone think of Shenhe's quest line? I really liked how we got to fight the giant sea monster along with getting to see the Jade Chamber finally restored. Yun Jin's dance at the end was also great to see as well.

I got fucked up by every gacha game in January. Jean C2 is nice, I guess. I like the speed. I'll be saving for Yae now, I want more Jun yin cons but I don't trust my luck and Yae is guaranteed now.

Uh...I'm working on Jun yin rn. I hate how many books I need. At least I got lucky with the artifact drops, she's pretty easy to build so I wasn't too picky.
Still need Kokomi artifacts but I build Barbara with Atk% to see if there's any difference with the clam set.

What did everyone think of Shenhe's quest line?

It's neat. I seriously need to finish Eula and Kokomi's quest....and Ito after those. Also, the dates hangouts..

EDIT: WINDTRACE IS STILL FUN AF. GO AHEAD AND INVITE ME IF YOU WANT TO PLAY FOR FUN BEFORE MHY STUPIDLY REMOVES IT AGAIN.

I just did the story event, I was doing Enkanomiya exploration but realized THIS can wait (It's HUUUGEEE and with so many puzzles!)... the main quest can not, because when the Liyue Lantern event comes again, you need to have everything under control in Liyue after all.

I was holding back because I don't have Shenhe and I didn't know if I would like her or if the game would make me Like her too much and regret not getting her, but now I think, She's nice! but I'm not desperate to get her, Yae it is!

As for the story, is dark huh! it really gets gruesome with her past, and I really need to wonder what's that about her doomed fate, what if she loses her red strings? I need answer! I hope she's okay.

There was something bad however, when her tragic past is revealed with the diary of her father and the girls are in shock, Paimon says "WELP the magic rock isn't here, huh? lets keep looking!" that's so tone deaf! omg Paimon how greedy can you be? and then she approaches the uncle and says thanks but the guy just turns and walks away without saying anything! AWKWARD.and finally, when Sun Jin is talking with Shenhe about her past and changing the opera, which is a really sensitive topic, Paimon cuts in and says "Stop the chit chat! we need to hurry before someone gets ahead of us!" Holy Shet Paimon, that was honestly fucked up!

Something I don't like but actually like (done better) in the quest, were the characters involved, you can talk with many but you knew that you could talk with Qiqi, Xiao and Keqing during the quest too? The quest line won't direct you to these characters but they are there in Liyue with dialogs, if you are doing the quest but just for bad luck you didn't have the correct camera angle walking around, you probably missed them and teleported away... I finished the quest thinking "I wonder if I missed any..." and that's not good! but I enjoyed talking with them.

They did it again!!! in the new event, if you look around you'll find Xiangling, Beidou, Xinyan and even Hu Tao in the city! the quest won't tell you where they are, so if you want to talk with them look around! specially Xiangling and Hu Tao who have some really cute lines with ((((flert))))

I just want to say that I have never won the 50-50 in this game. But well at least I have Ganqing now. But damn I would have to whale to get Raiden's pet fox.

Randomly pulled A Certain Fake Catgirl from the standard banner instead of the obligatory memetic Qiqi (C3 btw), guess that adds the electro artifact domain to the growing laundry list of shit I need to farm at some point. Might contemplate getting her new skin too because I find some aspects of it to be a meaningful improvement over the original (particularly the shoes, the default ones look a few sizes too small which bugs me inordinately).

Costume get, rewards get, ending get! this event was really nice!

HEADS UP! aside from the characters I mentioned in the previous post (Xiangling, Hu Tao, Beidou and Xinyan), you can find more in Liyue! I won't tell you the locations unless you ask me because it was fun looking for them too, the difficulty to find them lies in how close to a teleport or the city they are.

Chongyiu... idk his name, ice kid (hard to find)
Zhongli (very easy)
Xiao (a bit difficult)
Ninguangg and Keqing (super easy, the quest will lead you to them)
Shenhe (hard)
Ganyu (very hard)
Yanfei (normal)

I could not find Yun jin, Qiqi or Xinqiu after the event is over.

Thanks for the codes! got them earlier

First banner of 2.5 is Yae alone apparently, then Raiden and Kokomi (I have both) but the third banner (assuming there's a third before 2.6 and The Chasm) is not revealed.

I'm right now done with Seirai, Narukami, Watatsumi, and Tsurumi islands at 100% exploration. I still have to do the two other islands and get the tree to level 50.

MHY not pulling any punches now that they're out of china. The event is really pushing the ships hard what is that amazing payment, eh beidou???

They're also not pulling any punches on the banners, Raiden is back already. I have Yae guaranteed in about 13 rolls or less and have 33 rolls ready.

Also finished a few more stuff...enkanomiya was very confusing because I somehow forgot to get the map while doing the quest...I'm so dum.

New primogem code from an unknown source: ZSPDKSC3V8V5 (Gives 60 primogems + 5 Adventurer's Experience).

I got Ei's waifu Miko last night along with C8 Fischl, C5 Diona, C1 Qiqi from Standard, and a few other decent weapons. Am working on Lost Prayer for Miko right now.

Nice!

Did 50 pulls on Yae's banner (thanks LNY) and 10 on standard. End result was 2 Yaes, 2 Fischls (C5 now, just... one... more...), 4(!) Thomas (C4) plus randomly a Sara (C2), a Favo Lance (R3) and 2 Rusts (R1). (Some time ago I got spooked by a rando Amos so I guess I now have full collection of "attack mode specialty" bows?)

Definitely a good haul. Piled up enough of those whatchamacallems that I could buy Noelle's final dupe off the shop too so the vacancy of the Geo Archon is now filled :v

Also Yae's lines are lulzy. "Do something amusing for me." "Let's go bully that Yashiro Com girl [ie. Sayu] into cooking something for me!"
