JM 287 Released

Chapter <-

I rolled 3 Klees and 2 Wolf’s Gravestones in like $100. Not too bad, for a game that uses an entirely predatory model. Oh yeah, someone was surprised that I didn’t rant about Genshin last time I posted, so I’m going to do it this time.

Exploration is the game’s only upside. Combat is kind of bad, and they really need to either expose the auto aim and let me target a specific thing, or completely remove it and let me aim. I got to floor 10-3 in abyss on AR 35, and honestly the only reason I couldn’t beat it is because the targeting system didn’t let me hit what I wanted to. And I didn’t whale hard enough so I had literally no water damage.

Now that I’m AR 39, closing in on 40, I’m basically hard locked out of playing more than 10 minutes a day by the shit energy system that is also making it so that I’m not even actually that motivated to pull for new characters, but I have literally no resources to use on them. If they want to target PC/Console and not just mobile, they should at least let you keep farming, even if the rates suck. Hell, presenting energy as drop rate bonus gauge or something that gets drained would make people like it much, much more. This is literally what WoW did. I’m also not sure why the stupid world bosses eat energy. That makes no sense either given the awful regen rate. On days where I kill storm terror and wolf, I play even less since each one takes like 30 seconds…

Pity requires way too much spending, and doesn’t even guarantee the thing you want in the weapon gacha, in which there are two featured five stars.

Tying drops entirely to the level of the world players are currently in and not allowing players to play with higher world level friends + disincentivizing players from playing with lower leveled friends literally defeats the purpose of multiplayer. And it could’ve been a quick change since everyone rolls their own loot in a large number of cases anyway. They could’ve just made that universal and let people actually play with each other. Instead, I’m behind all my friends because I refuse to spend $ or fragile resin. lol

Oh yeah, the respawn rate of things in the open world is also ridiculously low. I’m talking specifically about chests. I’ve already gotten all 400/800 in the two areas respectively, and now I basically come across one every other day or so if I bother to explore. They would’ve been better off lowering the rewards on respawning chests and making them respawn en masse so players actually have things to do later on.

The artifacts have like 7 layers of RNG and are super annoying to farm, which is especially annoying because the value of resin rises as your AR rises. There are a billion more things to say and grumble about, but I need to get back to work.

  1. And still I enjoyed the ride. Played as an exploration experience, it was nice. After unlocking the map and bosses and mainquest stuff I simply was done. Didnt have a fullfilling “end experience” or whatever but that didnt bother me much. Kinda similar to webnovels in a way. Probably not a game I will still think about in a few months.

  2. >energy system
    I was wondering if I should start playing, so thanks for telling me it’s a game for simps. Really appreciate not having to waste time even trying.

  3. Honestly other than the resin system, my biggest complaint is that without spending $ you have zero chance of gaining a decent amount of primogems between banners. 60 a day from commissions is harsh. That’s only 11 wishes for a whole month of logging in.

  4. Lol, I have incredible luck when it comes to gacha. I am 100% F2P but I have 3 5 star characters in Genshin. In Arknights, I got 9 different 6 star operators within 100 rolls.

  5. Just wanted to point thay genshin knows about the energy problem and they are working on a way to fix it. They basically went tell us how much it sucks and give us some suggestions. So hopefully by the next pack it will be in.

  6. They’re also improving the guaranteed 5* from every 90 wishes to 50. It’s still not great, but at least it’s better. They definitely need to fix the resin thing

  7. I’m one round of commissions away from 40 as well.
    I literally just do my dailies, spend the resin and log out. I’m hoping the update n November finishes up the Liyue storyline cause that’s pretty much the only thing I’m looking forward to, cause at least that wouldn’t be tied to resin. Still a good 30 some odd away from pity, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed cause I’m definitely not buying any primogems.

  8. I’m pretty sure chest don’t actually respawn and and are tied to AR for spawns for certain locations. Last time I grabbed all the chest over a week ago at AR 36~ using the chinese maps and decided to check for respawns 2 days ago but didn’t see a single chest. I’m at chest grabbed about 1,500. A player from Asia servers actually came to this conclusion too but of course, got massively downvoted on reddit for not showing evidence.
