    @Racing_Miku the main thing with Spiral abyss I found helps most is triggering elemental reactions quite often. You can check what enemies are on which floor and chamber prior to actually starting, so you can build a team around a specific one if it isn’t 3 stars. Since Amber is your only pyro, just focus on getting past I believe it is 3-3, as it should give you a free Xiangling. The hardest enemy on that floor is in Chamber 3, a level 45 Ruin Guard.

    I will have a check on this when I go home, if I remember right Ruin Guards weak spot is to hit the eyeball centre in the head and this incapacitates them for a short time so during that I presume I could use my elemental attacks to drain a lot more of his health bar.

    Decided to make a PC account that is strictly F2P (no Welkin, top ups, etc.). Right off the bat it was so much faster and smoother than the PS4 version. My biggest regret is not dedicating my original game to PC, because this is too much fun. Combat is a bit awkward with switching, but I think I can get around that eventually. I also can’t wait for when 1.2 comes, because they will be giving fates (wishes) at certain ascension feats for your characters, with the ability to claim ones missed before 1.2.

    I'm surprised they let us get wishes for the ones we already ascended, but I'm not going to complain. I really like playing on the PC, as I can go on my phone and collect my expedition rewards from there. Don't like doing combat on my phone. I hear that PC is smoother than the PS4, so I don't have experience in that regards, but I thought I heard the PS5 does run it better.

    Supposedly the PS5 runs it at 60 FPS, which right off the bat makes it 10 times better than the PS4 version. That said, I’m not shelling out money for a ps5 when I already had to do that for a new pc recently.

    Well, I think I'm done with this current wish banner. Got Zhongli, and with getting Qiqi on my previous 10 wish. Time to save up the Primogems for the next banner. Now to farm XP Books to level up the people I want to level. Also seems like my Catalyst looks pretty nice. The description said something about being able to chain attack to 3 surrounding enemies, or something to that effect.

    Double post, but seems like some Genshin Youtubers are talking about getting hacked, or had unsuccessful attempt at getting their accounts hacked. Mostly would apply to PC and Mobile users, as the PS4/5 users would be tied to your PSN, with the extra security that they have. From what it sounds like Mihoyo really needs to work on their security, as well as their customer service. I guess some people have to wait like 14 days to just get a response from them.

    As I am now playing on PS5 I can confirm the 60 FPS, it's much more polished than PS4

    Does seem to be the case when it comes to PC/mobile, I have only played it on the PS4/5 since I only have those consoles and security does seem a bit better.

    Struggling a bit with the Spiral Abyss, can't get past floor 2-2 so I am no further in my attempts to complete that event.

    Really enjoying the gliding event, the first two days I got gold quite easily but day 3's challenge required a bit more skill so I am looking forward to that tonight when I get home from work.

    I also have a new character Fischl but it seems my wish luck is not getting me many characters so far...

    If I remember right, that’s the key line defense. A few little ways you can make it a bit easier is, if using Amber, constantly use her skill away from the thing you’re defending, it acts as a taunter for enemies. Another thing is to invest good dp/artifacts in Fischl, because her skill is a great support for the enemies there. Also shift focus to the abyss mage immediately when it spawns.

    I will do!

    That was one thing I checked and all my characters have high defence currently with their defense items so that should help in tonight's attempt and I also notice that quite a few Youtube video's they are just going for all 'same type' element characters (Pyro Floor 1 - Cryo Floor 2 etc).

    Also characters are now up to Level 35 thanks to some more adventure experience scrolls so hopefully tonight is the night, I will see how it goes after today's gliding challenge!

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention, invest in ATK artifacts, notably the hour glass and the helmet slots, as your normal attacks will hit harder. If you use your elemental skill/burst often, an elemental DMG goblet is what you want to go for. ATK and elemental damage becomes increasingly important in the later parts of the game and of the later floors of the Abyss, especially around floor 6/7.

    Another thing I started learning is you don't necessarily need to run four different elements for everything. Double Pyro for example is actually really nice since it grants a 25% ATK increase. Double Geo is also pretty good because of the 15% attack DMG increase under shield.

    I think I have that covered already but I will check as I did notice some characters seemed to have weaker attacks so will check the build's before I venture in.

    Main problem I have is the lack of characters and wishes since I only have one double element and that's Electro/Ameno but I will keep working away at as probably another week before I can wish again!

    So the next update for Genshin Impact will be available from 4:00 AM on 23 December 2020:

    The full announcement from developer MuHoYo is still awaited but what we know of the new update from the recent video announcement is thus:

    New Area Location: Dragonspine

    Private Chat Function
    Friends Nicknames

    Also a new event from 11/12/2020:

    Will be participating in this since I like the food Daily Quests a lot!


    Good Hunter, Wangshu Inn, and Wanmin Restaurant are currently facing a high volume of orders. They don't have enough delivery staff to cover them all and are looking for help.

    During this event, fulfill timed food delivery orders from Sara at Good Hunter, Smiley Yanxiao at Wangshu Inn, and Chef Mao at Wanmin Restaurant to receive rewards — and complete all daily orders to get Primogems!


    〓Event Duration〓

    2020-12-11 10:00:00 – 2020-12-18 03:59:59


    〓Eligibility〓

    Reach Adventure Rank 20 or above


    〓Event Details〓

    During the event period, Travelers can take timed food delivery orders from Sara at Good Hunter, Smiley Yanxiao at Wangshu Inn, and Chef Mao at Wanmin Restaurant via the event menu.

    Food must be delivered within the specified time limit and without breaking any other conditions that may apply depending on the food in question. These may include conditions against gliding, climbing, taking DMG, sprinting, and being affected by elements. Breaking these conditions will ruin the food, in which case Travelers will have to acquire a fresh portion and restart the delivery.

    A reward is available for each fulfilled order.

    Fulfill all 3 orders in a day to win Primogems.

    New event-related BP Missions have been added to Fading Star. Complete them to receive BEP.

    3 delivery orders will be available per day, refreshing at 04:00 daily.

    (Above times are all displayed according to your server time.)

    Note: Different servers do not have the same server times. Travelers, please take note of the difference between server times and the time in your own time zone as follows:

    America: UTC-5

    Europe: UTC+1

    Asia: UTC+8

    TW, HK, MO: UTC+8

    Also details on the current event Gliding Challenge as I'm planning to try and update the topic more often with the special events although I might not catch them every time!


    More Info here as quite lengthy article!
    https://forums.mihoyo.com/genshin/article/97932

    EDIT: Updating this post to add my video's of the Gliding Event and the first two day's of When It's Warm, gotta say they made those deliveries extremely challenging/wasted quite a few hours to get these results!

    Gliding Challenge:



    When It's Warm!

    The biggest regret I have is wasting a lot of resin on straight up XP books. Had I known grinding for artifacts would make combat far easier, I would’ve put more time towards getting elemental DMG goblets, and artifact sets that benefit certain characters more.

    This is my Klee right now, and she hits like a truck especially in constant element conditions. Currently missing a 5* pyro goblet, but it’s hilarious how much more potential there is here.

    @TetsuKobura that is pretty impressive on the attack and defence there!

    I've spent quite a bit of time working on gathering artefacts and slowly starting to see improvements in the characters attack/defence levels but clearly I need to work on this a bit yet as am still on the basic gear sets as haven't got any of the rarer'/specialist sets yet.

    Never used any resin either so I'm not really sure how that works overall or how I would use it in terms of levelling up as I know how it's obtained/regenerated but not much else.

    Still not visited a leyline or dungeon with level up materials etc either so I guess I should investigate this at some point soon as now that I am AR26 enemies are getting tougher and attacks are starting to feel weak...

    Don't forget to level up your talents too, as that will help your damage dealt. Also leveling up weapons will help on the ATK.

    As far as Resin. I spend one day using it all on Ley Lines, then the next day, I'll farm the bosses, so I can get materials for the characters. Then after that, you could farm the domains. I personally haven't done the artifacts domains a whole lot, even at AR44, and just use what ever I get from the bosses, or from the world. I try to put on artifacts that have ATK value if I can. Otherwise, if you need weapon materials, you can farm them on the days the domain are available, when you have the Resin.

    Honestly, I haven't done a domain in about a month, and really should for at least weapons materials. Supposedly, according to "YouTubers," artifact domains are not really worth it, until you hit AR45, where I guess you can get some 5 star drops. I'm getting them randomly now from the bosses, since AR42ish.

    At least that's how I'm playing, and by no means is it optimized or anything, as I just play how I want to.

    Well it seems I am something of a 'noob', I had no idea that's what those books were for so I guess I know what I'll be doing after I finish up my Forza Horizon 4 Season 29 playlist this evening!

    Thanks for the info, I guess Thursday night I shall go see if I can get myself some more of these to improve the 'talent', I take it I can just run the required dungeon multiple times for the talent books?

    Yup, you can run domains multiple times. Once you get your books, you just need materials, which you should have most of them anyways, from just exploring, for the first few levels at least.

    Information about the upcoming update for the Dragonspine area were released yesterday, forgot to post here.

    Important takeaways from it:
    Overworld:
    • Dragonspine area will have a Sub-Zero element effect
    • Sub-zero will show a bar above your HP that will gradually fill up
    • When the bar is maxed out, you will lose HP at a fairly rapid pace based off of total amount
    • Swimming will increase the progress of the bar a bit faster than it would on the ground
    • Finding a bonfire will quickly get rid of the entire bar progress
    • There are special food/items that can slow the progress of sheer cold (STOCKPILE FLAMING FLOWERS NOW)
    2020121710232856930[1].jpg

    Event Info:
    • There is a crystal aura called Scarlet Quartz, which temporarily halts the sheer-cold effect from progressing. This aura is also important because there are certain places that cannot be melted with weapons or pyro, but the aura can help get past that and reveal treasure or possible mechanics.
    • The event currency is called Crimson Agate, and is used to be offered at the Frostbearing Tree, a location that can grant rewards based on the amount of progress. Level 4 of it gives the blueprint for the Warming Bottle as shown above. The bottle acts as a pocket bonfire and will decrease the sheer-cold effect, but have a 120 second cooldown.
    2020121710230550735[1].png

    Other new items:
    • There are two new sets of artifacts available from new domains, the Blizzard Strayer and Heart of Depth. From how it sounds, it could be the damage bonus sets for Cryo and Hydro, since Pyro, Anemo, Geo, and Electro are already in the game.
    • There is a new 4* Catalyst craftable weapon called Frostbearer. At level 10 of the event, you can craft it using a catalyst prototype I imagine.
    • There is a sword called the Festering Desire which also has some pretty neat effects that work during the event.
    2020121710265010113[1].jpg

    Lastly:
    • After unlocking the Dragonspine area, Travelers do not need to consume Original Resin to participate in the event. Rewards will be available for exchange via the Event Shop.

    Sounds like a good update/addition to the game, I love the challenge of cold environments in games, so I will be visiting Dragon Spine asap after the update drops, the frost bearing tree rewards also seem very satisfactory.

    Roll on 23rd December!

    I presume there are some new characters/wish rewards too as I noticed the Genshin forums are showing thumbnails for new characters...

    Yep, next Banner features Albedo (Geo Sword), but as of now the 4 stars alongside him are unknown. The one after, however, sounds like a better investment for me, as it's Ganyu (Cryo Bow).

    Yup looks a good character, it's the unknown one that interests me most at the moment but hopefully find out more details next week, I haven't wished at all the past two weeks on the basis of new DLC was coming so I have about 30 wishes at the moment, hopefully will yield some success as characters have not been forthcoming so far on my game.

    Strange that my 'test profile' I've won more characters, guess that's how the dice roll!

    I'm looking forward to getting three more copies of Fischl, so I can max her Constellations. I already have Sucrose max Constellations. Don't really care for Albedo, so I may just build up my wishes close to the pity system so I can hopefully get Ganyu for the next banner.

    Thanks for post, so will the other banners get updated?

    I can't decided if I should hold my wishes for the new update on Wednesday or spend some of them now (can do 30 wishes).

    This weapon banner harmonizes nicely with the character banner for support builds.
    • Flavonius Sword with Bennett for Pyro Utility
    • Sac. Fragments with Sucrose for Elemental Mastery battery
    • Stringless now with Fischl for Electro reaction support
    I can’t wait for those free acquaint fates from all my ascensions when this update comes out. I’m hyped.

    Got Fischl's full constellation now, with the primogems that I saved up. Also managed to pull Keqing from the Standard banner with all the ascension wishes that I got from ascending my characters. Now to save up again for Ganyu

    Welp, just like with 2020, bad luck just seems to follow me wherever I go. From my 45 fates, I got a Keqing duplicate when I could’ve had Mona, C3 Jean, or Aquila Favonia. At least this dragonspine region has a lot of puzzles and places to explore.

    Was quite surprised to see the download started on the 22nd for me so was installed by 10:30pm but of course with the server offline I couldn't look at the new content so I will check that when I finish my shift at work today.

    Is the Kamera option available from the menu's or is it an item in our inventory?
