  1. Looks like Genshin won some kinda Playstation awards, they're even sending us some extra primos as thanks over the next few days (to everyone above AR7, so basically everybody). :yay:https://genshin.mihoyo.com/en/news/detail/17445

    Β 

    800 primos isn't a lot (5 pulls), but it's more than we usually get from things. πŸ˜…

    1. NERVergoproxy

      NERVergoproxy

      Anything to keep me pulling.

  2. [Dark Rose Valkyrie] I finished my first run, managed to beat it withing lowering the difficulty past hard (also got Coo's true end). :yay: Now I have a lot of prep I need to do for my "very hard" run. I just made a discovery I don't think I've seen mentioned anywhere either (there's really not a lot of info around about this game)... Obviously a portion of your PP gets transferred to NG+ (40% for a hard run?), but what I haven't seen mentioned is that any unused BP gets converted & added to the pool as well. Meaning if I do some level grinding but don't spend any of my points afterwords, I can transfer a portion of all that as well (making my next run that much easier). :D

    Β 

    I've already been kinda lazy upgrading my lesser used characters, so that's an extra 800 or so points right there. I'm pretty sure the PP system in Cross Edge worked the same way, so I'm glad I bothered checking it before I spent it all. πŸ˜… Based on my hard run, very hard is probably going to suck either way, so I have to stockpile as much as possible before jumping into that... -_-

      @Yuna4353 The story is pretty good, I enjoyed that. Gameplay though can be a little tedious at times compared to the other CH games out there...

      Β 

      There's basically 3 attack stats in the game (melee, range, & special), & a lot of the skills are a hybrid mixture of 2, so it can be a little confusing at times deciding on what stat you wanna focus on. Also if you're under-leveled in your accuracy stat even slightly, it seems like 70% of your attacks start missing all the time.

      Β 

      The range of the AoE skills kinda suck too, there's barely any difference between a B rank skill & SS (you're lucky if you can even hit 3 enemies at a time with them). Also if a enemy decides to move & attack before it goes off, it completely screws up your targeting. :shakefist:

      Β 

      The boss fights are very cheap as well, in most cases I just had to charge my TP gauge to max in a normal battle beforehand so I could nuke the bosses on the first turn with specials. This is especially true in the end game, they love throwing 1-hit KO moves at you with tons of status ailments (sometimes before you even get a turn). πŸ€•

      Β 

      I could really only recommend it if you've played other CH games & are a fan of them. Gameplay is definitely on the lower end of the others, but I do think the story is worth it. :hmm:

      Checking if now. Hoping for some good Switch stuff.

      Cross Edge you said?!

      *Vietnam flashbacks* O_o

      Β 

      One day I'll return there...hopefully. xD

      Β 

      Best of luck on your very hard run for this game. :D

  3. I started Dark Rose Valkyrie, I thought since it has a ton of free DLC, I could manage starting on "very hard" (usually free DLC for CH games give you some OP mid game equipment)... this was not the case. πŸ˜… It started out okay, the first couple bosses were manageable, but I was only in chapter 2 when I was forced to lower it down to hard. I'm pretty sure very hard was designed specifically with NG+ in mind, & I think I heard there's supposed to be a huge difficulty spike towards the end, so I'm not even going to attempt that. πŸ˜‚

    Β 

    Hopefully I don't have to lower it anymore, I know your difficulty effects what your level cap is. Don't know if it effects anything for NG+ carryover though? :hmm:

    1. Priere

      Priere

      Yeah, no. Very hard actually should be called Nightmare, cuz that's what it really is. I managed to do a single Very Hard Playthrough so i hope i can help with a few things, such as: be careful, reports show that your PPΒ and Money only carry over a certain percentage of the total rather than stay in tact, and the percentage that carries over gets lower the lower the difficulty played on.Β 

      Β 

      If you believe it or not...i had to buy paid DLC to beat this game, the 2nd PP one and the ultimate equipment set. Still barely managed against the final boss. Best of luck

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Yeah, I kinda figured VH may be possible if I got the paid DLC, but I rather do 2 playthroughs than do that. πŸ˜… As long as my equipment carries over in NG+, VH should be a lot more manageable... hopefully. :hmm:

      If I knew I'd be doing 2 runs, I would've saved the free DLC for the 2nd one. It didn't make too much of a difference though, so hopefully it won't be needed,

    3. Priere

      Priere

      Oh no....he said the cursed "hopefully it won't be needed".Β

      Β 

      I'm seriously hoping you don't though, you can do it!

  4. Platinum #190 - Days Gone

    I was originally hoping to get this done by Halloween, but it was longer than expected. πŸ˜… Great game though, glad I didn't rush it. ^_^

  5. [Genshin Impact] Over the year I've been playing this game, there's only been 1 character I went for & didn't get... around 8 months later (give or take), I can finally say I got her. :yay:

    NUSNmta.jpg

    I had enough primos to hit pity 3 times, so I was getting her either way. Thankfully I won the 50-50 this time though, so now I have 20K primos leftover that will be saved for later. :D I even did 20 pulls on the weapon banner for the first time ever, & by some miracle I got a 5* pull in that 20... however it was just a Skyward Spine (which I already have 2 of), so I'm not going to push my luck anymore there... πŸ˜…

    1. Masamune

      Masamune

      So yeah... I pushed my luck a bit further & this happened. πŸ˜‚

      fF3ZsTd.jpg

  6. Platinum #189 -Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit! (+100%)

    The plat drought finally ends! :yay: It may've only been a 20-30 hour plat, but this is now my longest one, taking me over 4 months to finish (just for reference, Mugen Souls took 3 months). πŸ˜…

      Great work, man! Congrats on this one. I remember you were struggling at having to perfect one of the songs back then. Nice to see you pulled through and completed this one. xD

      Β 

      Also, good call on putting cat ears on Hikage. x3

      I'll hopefully be getting to play this one soon. :D

  7. [Genshin Impact] I can't count how many times I've been screwed over by RNG in this game, but this almost makes up for it. :D

    jPm5gW4.jpg

    Β 

    If they would've just given this to everybody for the anniversary (instead of just 10%), I believe Mihoyo could've avoided a lot of that backlash that happened back then... but at least we got the Qiqi meme out of all that chaos, which I made into a start button for my PC. πŸ˜‚

      Honor_Hand

      That knife and Qiqi there makes it seems as if you were murdering poor Qiqi. What did she ever do to you? :P

      Β 

      Congrats on getting the blessing reward. Wish I could've gotten that one as well. πŸ˜…

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Oh no... if anything, Qiqi should be holding the knife. :devil:

      Lmao πŸ˜‚

  8. Well it's done, I'm finally all caught up with One Piece (dub)! :yay: Took me a little over 2 months, but I'm up to episode 732 now. πŸ˜… I won't be continuing via the subs, I'll just be waiting for the rest of the dubs now. I think they release around 12 episodes a month? So that's not too bad (considering most only get 1 a week), & if I'm not mistaken, the next batch should be coming up fairly soon? Good thing too, because 732 seems to be right towards the end of the Dressrosa arc. :hmm:

      I wasn't planning on doing it that quick, I was thinking it'd take me at least till the end of the year. πŸ˜… It was a lot better than I remembered though, there was some annoying filler at times, but overall it my interest in it stayed fairly strong. xD

      Honestly the last super long anime that I've enjoyed this much was probably Fairy Tail. :hmm:

    3. Dav9834

      Dav9834

      Damn congrats man! :highfive: I can't do shows that long, I'm with @funboy1246Β I lose interest.

      It's a marvel you did it in such short a time too. I feel I need to do the math lol

    4. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      An impressive feat. Not even during the height of my anime-watching experience I'd watch this many episodes during a year, let alone of a single series. :P

  9. [Genshin Impact] Another version update, & 2 more characters for the collection. :D

    AL4hP1s.jpg

    j9yOszy.jpg

    I also got Sucrose & Xiangling to C6 during my pulls on this banner as well. :yay: I still have about 10K primos left too, I may do some more pulls later to try for some extra copies of Sara (she's just C1 currently), or I may just save them for the next banner I wanna pull on (I'm skipping Kokomi). :hmm:

      Got Raiden & Sara last night. Really looking forward to Kokomi as well even though my likelihood of obtaining her is on the very low side.

      Β 

      Now Yae... oh boy... I REALLY WANT YAE MIKO! MiHoYo needs to give us a timeout with so many waifus coming back to back. We just can't. πŸ˜†

    3. Leon Castle

      Leon Castle

      @Masamune Makes sense that the Hu Tao Rerun Banner might be after Ver 2.2 and might be the 1st or 2nd banner of Ver 2.3 that starts around end of October/November (each version lasts 40 days) but I might skip the rerun banners since I already have Hu Tao and Ganyu and don't care about Albedo(but then again I always skip the male 5* banners)

      Β 

      @Honor_Hand Then Ver 2.2 might be the timeout we can get and if true it's only rerun banners with one new 4*(Thoma), then we can save a lot of Primogems/Intertwined Fates.

    4. Masamune

      Masamune

      Looks like Yae won't be in 2.2 at least. I'm kinda glad though, that'll give me plenty of time to start saving up for her. ^_^

  10. Still working on One Piece, up all the way to episode 484 now.Β πŸ˜… Those last couple episodes though... damn. 😒

      Think the dub is currently up to... 732? :hmm:

    4. Silver-I-Chariot

      Silver-I-Chariot

      Might be an unpopular opinion but after watching 987 episodes of the anime and reading over a thousand chapters of the manga, I wish it would just end. One Piece definitely overstayed its welcome, at least in my eyes.Β 

  11. I went to a store that had all these different kinds of specialty hot sauces, so I couldn't leave without grabbing at least 1 of them. :P I decided on one called "Da' Bomb"...

    XiLRp41.jpg

    There's a warning on the side that says to keep away from children, & to only use 1 drop at a time... well after putting that single drop on my tongue, I know know that warning is well placed (there's no way that's just 100K scovilles). πŸ˜‚ It only took a second for the heat to spread to my whole mouth & throat, & for the first 5-10 minutes it just seems to get hotter... oMJ2gT3.gif

    This stuff is habanero-based, but it's probably 2-3 times hotter than my last habanero sauce I tried... it also has chipotle peppers in it as well, but you won't even taste them over the pure heat. It definitely won't be something I can use as a pure dipping sauce like I usually do either, but it'll probably be good mixed in with some BBQ sauce, used in curry, or maybe a single drop on a piece of pizza. πŸ˜…

      Guess that "Da Bomb. Beyond Insanity" on the sticker is well placed then. πŸ˜…

      Β 

      For real, though, I like spicy food but I'm not a fan of hot sauce myself, much less hot sauces designed to rip your tongue and soul off. That's not cool. πŸ˜‚

    3. Masamune

      Masamune

      Well I added 3 drops to around 1-2oz of BBQ sauce & that was enough for an entire meal... actually I probably could've used about half that. πŸ˜… It may be a small bottle, but this shit is going to last me months. πŸ˜‚

    4. Dav9834

      Dav9834

      Send me a bottle! Would probably clear out my sinuses for a week from the sound of it

  12. [Genshin Impact] Time to show off my new 5* character! :yay:

    GrXWdjd.jpg

    I've been looking forward to getting Yoimiya for quite a while now, skipping Ayaka in favor of her was an easy choice for me. :P Despite the hate she gets from the meta community, she's just as good as I was expecting. It's like they're incapable of doing basic math to see the awesome damage her normal attacks can do, all they seen was her attacks aren't AoE & automatically declared her trash... oh well, their loss. πŸ˜…

    Β 

    I also got the 4* Sayu, she's only half built though since I didn't have time to farm mats for both her & Yoimiya. Looking forward to using her as well. :DΒ

      Another that likes Yoimiya ShkKZjB.gif, for me She's as good as Ganyu.

      Honor_Hand

      My luck sucks. 😒 I wasn't able to get Yoimiya last night. I ended up getting Qiqi'd instead. Now I have her in C2. I was already working on upgrading her but I guess I'll be giving her more priority now. I know she's not the best 5* but she's a cute healer at least. πŸ˜”

      Β 

      QPRYP0k.jpg

      Β 

      The rest of my pulls last night were 1 Xinyan, 2 Xianglings, three 4* weapons, 1 Diona, and at least I was able to get 2 Sayus. Sayu is cool. I love how you can go all Sonic spin dash mode with her on the overworld, lol. πŸ˜‚ Now I can make a full squadron of lolis since I have all 4 of them. :awesome:Β 

      Β 

      I will probably roll a few more on this banner not with the hopes of getting Yoimiya but more with the purpose of preparing my next 100% pity for when Baal comes out. Damn... I like archers more, I think I'd preferred Yoimiya way more than Baal. :hmm:Β 

    4. Masamune

      Masamune

      Honestly, if it's just ST damage we're talking about, Yoimiya may be my top DPS character now, at least when her skill is active. :hmm: I do have an R5 Rust on her though, that's an 80% damage boost right there.Β  xD

  13. [Genshin Impact] So apparently Genshin will be having their first collab character added in version 2.2... even more surprising, we get her for free (PS users get her in 2.2, others in 2.3).

    Β 

    The character is Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn, I wouldn't have been able to guess that in a million years. πŸ˜…

      @Masamune A collab with another gacha game or another anime would've made more sense, I have to agree with that. But still, it's very cool to see a proper adaptation of a character from a PlayStation universe into the world of Genshin. Really makes you think that there are no limits to the possibilities of what characters could get into the game.

      Β 

      The collab is for 2.1, right? Or is it 2.2? I'm a bit confused now. I've seen conflicting information on this.

      Β 

      @Leon Castle Definitely aiming for Kokomi and Baal myself. ^_^

      Β 

      Now... that's too many waifus for the upcoming banners. The meager amount of gems I have won't be able to get even half of them. πŸ˜…

    3. Masamune

      Masamune

      @Leon Castle I'm really hoping that'll be the case, I was already planning on skipping Kokomi, so if Baal & Sara are on the second banner, that'll be perfect (much like my plans for this version: skipping Ayaka, then going for Yoimiyu/Sayu).

      Β 

      I thought I heard about another unannounced 4* possibly in 2.1 as well though? If so, I guess they'd be on Kokomi's banner. :hmm:

      *Yoimiya

    4. Leon Castle

      Leon Castle

      @Honor_Hand The collab(Both Aloy and her bow) is for 2.1(PS4/5 only) and 2.2(All Versions) at least that I understand from reading both Gematsu and Crunchyroll.

      Β 

      Unless Yae Miko gets added in 2.2 or 2.3(I doubt she's the another unannounced 4* if there is one as she's a Electro and that would be one too many Electro Users in a version with already two new Electro Users) then I might get a break from waifu wishing... maybe.

  14. [Genshin Impact] Tonight the archipelago will be gone, who knows how long it'll be till it returns... have to admit, I'm going to miss the scenery there (OST wasn't too bad either).

    61PZsU7.jpg

    Β 

    I think I'll even miss that hilichurl family on Minacious Isle... I killed them so many times. :devil:

    Fischl's laugh was so well placed at the end there, I had to save it (I didn't even know she did that). πŸ˜‚

    1. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Lovely screenshot right there. You're very hardcore into Fischl now, aren't you? I remember you didn't like her that much at first, lol. xD But yeah, today is the last day of the Golden Apple Archipelago. Kinda sad to see the islands go. We only spent a few days on them but the OST was very memorable for me. Kinda gave me a Wind Waker vibe even. And the exploring and stories contained within the islands were nice too. Actually had a good time trying to figure as much as I could on my own. Not to mention that we're also taking this super cute swimsuit for Barbara as a souvenir. 😘

      Β 

      Here's hoping they'll bring these islands back in the future. For now, We have Inazuma to look forward to. ^_^

      Β 

      Also, glad I was not the only one that thought I was murderizing hilichurl families on that island. I saw the two small guys running and the big guy on the side and thought the same exact thing, lmao. πŸ˜‚

      Β 

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Yeah, I had a pretty bad first impression of her. Once I got her to C6 & focused completely on buffing her Oz skill though, she became a huge help in battle (especially with my cryo/physical DPS characters). If I'm not mistaken, I still have her attack & burst talents at Lv1 too. πŸ˜…

      Β 

      Just judging from the trailer video, I think both the scenery & OST of Inazuma will be far better than the islands too.

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Wha?! You still have Fischl's attack at lvl 1? Whoa.Β πŸ˜… Definitely try raising her attack next. I know I use mine mostly for physical attacks. Raised that attack of hers to the max once I saw a video on YouTube saying she could be pretty much like a machine gun with that. πŸ˜‚

      Β 

      Agreed. I am expecting lots of great moments and sights from this new region. I'm sure it's going to deliver. Almost done downloading the patch here. :D

  15. 50 episodes of One Piece down... too many to count to go.Β πŸ˜‚ I think I'm making decent progress though, I watched all that in under a week. Still not up to where I dropped it before, but I can tell I'm enjoying it more than the 4kids version from my childhood at least. πŸ˜…

    Β 

    Also I don't remember Nami's backstory being that depressing, damn. 😒

    1. SKiL_Clash

      SKiL_Clash

      Such a sad story... Oda is good at backstories. Every single character and their bsckstory is perfection. Happy milestone of 50. Only like 930 to go lol

    2. enaysoft

      enaysoft

      I binge watched about 190 episodes in 2006 or so back when there was only about 250 episodes, I kinda want to get back into it, except I've forgotten a lot of what happened and put off wanting to watch the first 190 all over again. Plus, aren't there like over 900 episodes now?

    3. Masamune

      Masamune

      @enaysoft Yeah, I think it's just under 1,000 right now (or a little over 700 if you go the dub route like I am). πŸ˜… Even if I keep up this pace, I probably won't be caught up till around October/November. πŸ˜‚

  16. I did something today I thought I'd never do... I started One Piece. πŸ˜… I have seen some of it before, but dropped it... I figured I could give it another shot though (even though I really hate Usopp). :hmm: Before I made it at least to the point where that reindeer character joins, but since it's been so long (15+ years?), I just started back from episode 1. So what, only 700+ episodes till I reach the current (dubbed) season? πŸ˜‚

    Β 

    Also to be fair, when I dropped it before, this was back when the dub was by 4kids... I feel that was a sufficient enough reason to do so. πŸ˜…

      @The Arizona Ranger Yeah, that was pretty much my first experience with One Piece as well, I remember it being in that Saturday morning block too. πŸ˜‚ The stuff 4Kids do to their series is a total joke, honestly I'm amazed I watched as much of it as I did back then. πŸ˜…

      Β 

      I also have limited internet myself, but thankfully there's no overage charges with my ISP (the speed just gets throttled down to around 400KB/s). Still though, I doubt I'll be getting caught up with the series very quick, I'll mainly work on it when I don't have anything else to watch... currently 12 episodes in, so I'm around 1.7% caught up! :awesome:

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Yeah, I think it already went past the 1,000 episodes. At least in the subbed version, not sure about the dub. We'll probably reach the heath death of the universe first before One Piece runs out of episodes, lol. πŸ˜‚

      Β 

      @The Arizona Ranger That's some super dedication you put there to watch all those 600 episodes in such a short time frame. Man, I don't see myself ever doing that. πŸ˜† I didn't know 4K!ds had a bastardized version of the anime over there. First time I hear about it. I know they tried to do a number of anime adaptations (and failed miserably) but this one is completely new to me. Now, Sonic X, I totally remember watching that one and enjoying it. I would most likely hate if I watched it now, but back then I remember it was okay, lol.

      Β 

      Hope you can get that Starlink connection soon over there. Fingers crossed over here so that you can get a more reliable Internet provider soon, man.

      Usopp will grow on you, I really like him now.

  17. The new Inazuma region in Genshin is going to be awesome, I'm really looking forward to that (hopefully this'll keep me busy for at least a month). :yay:

    Β 

    For anyone that's been holding off on starting it, now would be a great time to do so, there's going to be an event in this upcoming version where you can get a free Beidou (imo, one of the best 4* characters in the game). There's also the anniversary coming up as well (end of September?), I'm sure there'll be some free loot to get from that too. ^_^

      Looking forward to the new region, waifus and the Inazuma story. Only 12 days or so left to make sure my PS4 has room for the new update.

      Honor_Hand

      The amount and quality of the new content we're getting is staggering. Super excited and 100% willing to continue my journey in Teyvat.

      Β 

      I really like the looks of the new Inazuma areas. From what they said on the video, it looks like we'll be getting caves and underground sections we can explore similar to the ones that were featured in Dragonspine. This is very cool, however, it does raises some doubts in me at the treasure and item collecting becoming a bit more of a hassle due to this. I mean, using that interactive map to find the Crimson Agates in Dragonspine was kind of messy, lol.

      Β 

      One thing I'm anticipating very much is the new soundtrack that will be featured in the Inazuma region. Very fitting that they went for the Tokyo Philarmonic Orchestra to compose this part of the OST. It's going to be epic! Can't wait! πŸ˜†

      For anyone that hasn't jumped into Genshin yet, indeed, this would be the perfect time to do so. The game is moving, improving, and evolving at an amazing pace right now. :D

  18. [Genshin Impact] Beidou finally got some screen-time in the story, & it only took them 9 months to do so. πŸ˜… This character has been out since day 1, & was my main for months (at least half the time I've been playing). πŸ˜‚

      That feeling when your favorite character in Genshin finally gets her much deserved screen-time. I was excited just like that when Diona got some Hangout Events not too long ago. But you Beidou fans have been waiting for waaaaayyyyyy longer. πŸ˜‚

  19. [Genshin Impact] I started working on a second teapot realm recently, now I've got 2/3 put together. :yay: I did some more experiments & made a couple new things for this one...

    Β 

    The first was a maze from all my stone wall pieces I've got...

    Β 

    While the second is a giant hose bigger than my main house (made from 8 or 9 buildings, complete with windmill! :awesome:).

      I saw that massive house over the hill last night. Cool detail with the windmill at the top. I wanted to get to the very top of it but couldn't. You really love to use that clipping, don't you.? :P It ended up looking very nice, I must admit. ^^

      Β 

      What I didn't see, though, was that labyrinth. I'm trying to build a fortress on that last sandy island but I have a terrible shortage of white iron chunks right now so the progress on it is coming along very slowly. πŸ˜…

      Yeah, you can get to the top railing easy enough, but if you wanna get on top of the roof, you'll need a character to make a platform or boost you up there. :P But it was kinda fun to make, it was kinda like a 3D puzzle. xD

      Β 

      I usually have a couple 20hr mining expeditions going to help keep my ores up, but whenever I start running low on the white iron, I'll change them to 8 hours (since that gets you more in half the time).

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Need either a Venti or a Zhongli for that. :P Now that I remember... I actually have Zhongli, lol.

      Β 

      I always set them for the full 20 hours mostly due to my schedule. I have a chance to boot up the game at night and that's usually when all those expeditions are finished. πŸ˜…

  20. [Genshin Impact] Seems I did something beyond idiotic recently... <_< You see, a while back I got a nice 5* artifact I've been trying to get for MONTHS, it was a cup with an Elemental Mastery main stat (it also had some nice sub stats as well, ATK% & CRIT DMG). Well it seems sometime within the last few days, I somehow got rid of it by mistake... I could've swore I had it locked too, I don't see how I managed to do that. 😒

    Β 

    Just FYI, an EM cup is the hardest artifact to get in the game (especially for a 5*, since you can only get around 10 or so a day if devoting all your resin to it), as it only has a 2.5% chance of appearing. :awesome:

      Ouch, I can feel the pain on this one. πŸ˜…

      Β 

      This is a wake-up call for me to go and lock some 5* artifacts that I have with cool bonuses that I'm not using, else I end up making the same mistake.

      Β 

      Let's hope you can get one of those EM cups to drop again soon.

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Thankfully I do have a 5* ATK cup with around a 85 EM sub stat, so I'm only losing out on around 100 EM... but it's still depressing I did something that stupid. -_-

      Β 

      Right after EM got that buff too! 😡

  21. [Genshin Impact] Got the last of the new 1.6 blueprints today & finished the last of the sets, the total rewards I got doing so were 1,040 Primogems, & 1,040,000 Mora (+ some extra books/shards). Also any time I get a new character now, that'll be an additional 40/40,000 rewards too. Really not a whole lot, but still a nice bonus. πŸ˜„

    1. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      I finished getting the blueprints 3 days ago but so far I've only done 2 of the sets lol. A thousand Primogems and a million Mora is a decent enough motivation for me to do them, though.

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      The only one that really took some time to do for me was the winery one, you need 8 of those grape vine things for that.

      & also a few of the new 1.6 items as well (buckets, fence, pole...).

  22. [Genshin Impact] Yesterday I did some pulls on Klee's banner, not really for Klee herself but rather the for the 4* characters on it (mainly Sucrose). On my second 10-pull (still 70 away from pity), this little zombie decided to pop out. πŸ˜‚

    EbIJozW.png

    That's the second or third time I got a 5* completely outside of the pity range. :yay: But now the only standard 5* character I'm missing is Jean. :D

      Although I have to have her on my Ganyu team as well... Qiqi wants her cocomilk. :awesome:

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Yeah, not having at least one healer in your party can be difficult at times. I did the same thing when either my Noelle, Diona, or Barbara reached friendship 10. I removed them from my team to start working on others and immediately found out that keeping a healer around at all times is vital. πŸ˜‚ I haven't raised my Qiqi that much yet, I want to focus on Mona and Xinyan first before working on her.

      Β 

      Good pick on equipping The Flute sword. I have heard that works great on her. I have the same one equipped on mine, although, I haven't thought yet which artifacts I'm going to use. Probably the Maiden beloved set with a focus on attack would be good, but again, I'd probably need to check her more thoroughly first to see what else she needs. :hmm:

      The only reason I could go without a healer was really just because of Zhongli, he's getting close to Lv10 now too though... But I don't know if I'll be able to remove him from my team afterwords, that damn shield of his really has me spoiled. πŸ˜…

  23. Genshin will be going into maintenance tonight for 1.6, honestly I'm not too hyped for this version though (not even close to 1.5). Hearing that these islands are going to just be a temporary thing kinda killed it for me. πŸ˜• Other than the new events, not really much is being added. Yeah, there's the costumes, but there's only 2 (one for a character I don't use, & another for one I don't have), not to mention the prices for these are going to be laughable (like $25-$30), so other than the free one we get, I don't ever see myself actually buying them. πŸ˜…

    Β 

    At least after this version though, it should be the main Inazuma update in mid-late July (which may jump straight to 2.0). That should be adding inΒ Saya, Ayaka, & the newly revealed Yoimiya (or at least 2 of the 3). :yay: If Yoimiya & Ayaka are in the same update though, I'll have to chose between them for which one to go for... honestly I'm already leaning towards Yoimiya just because I don't need another cryo character. :hmm:

      It'd be awesome if she's as OP as Ganyu, I'll be surprised if they do that again though. :hmm: From what I've heard, Ayaka is supposed to be pretty weak compared to the other 5* characters (at least in the beta), so I'd be fine with skipping out on her banner (unless that's where Saya is going to be).

      @Masamune That Loli Ninja right? I wait for her in ver. 1.7/1.8 so I can use Acquaint Fates like I plan to do for Yanfei

      Admittedly, the fact the islands are going to be available only for a limited time is enough to zap a good chunk of the interest for this upcoming version. Regardless, it's a new area to explore, we're going to have new quests, new materials, new monsters, new characters. new events, there's plenty of great stuff to look forward to. I'm not going to lie, I'd have also preferred if this new area was a permanent addition to the game, but still, we have to enjoy what we're getting now. Who knows, maybe these islands will become available again at a later point in the future. I vividly recall miHoyo saying that they could bring them back later on. :hmm:Β 

      Β 

      As for permanent new territories to explore, we also have Inazuma on the horizon, which I feel we'll be going to at some point soon.

      Β 

      I'm gonna be using most of my fates to roll for Klee-chan since I've been wanting to have her on my team ever since the game came out. As for who I'm going to save next, that's a hard one. If you asked me yesterday morning, I would have said the claymore-wielding loli, Sayu. But this Yoimiya reveal has me on embers, quite literally, lol. Not sure when she, Sayu, and Ayaka are going to come out. I hope they space them out a little because I doubt I'm going to be able to get them all. xD

      Β 

      Personally, I think I'd go something like Sayu, then Yoimiya, and last Ayaka, but that's mostly because regular sword-wielding characters don't excite me too much. :P

  24. Platinum #188 - Undertale! :yay:

    I'm going to have to do a harder plat soon, these easy ones are starting to spoil me. πŸ˜… I'm sure I'll do something good for #200... unless I do decide to make it Hentai vs. Evil. πŸ˜‚

  25. [Genshin Impact] I figured I'd do a little artifact farming at the Valley of Remembrance since Eula should make it even easier (physical damage gets a 75% boost there), but I didn't really get a chance to attack with her much this time. πŸ˜‚

      Holy hell... LMAO! πŸ˜‚ That's amazing. I never expected Barbara to be that powerful. I've been raising mine with a focus on healing but this set of focused on EM with vaporize and CRITs is genius.

      Β 

      That's one thing I have to Genshin credit for, it really gives you a lot of flexibility on how you want to play your characters. I mean, I remember when Barbara came out and no one wanted her because of how weak she was. She was often the subject of jokes and everything. And here we have a video of her nuking the toughest enemies in the game. Impressive. <3
