*Greedy If she were In the venti banner, I'd roll. (Due to Venti) Got Dilic+Ganyu & I'd only roll(spend) if my Artifact drops been good that week, month, eternity. Don't spend to then Invest, throw resources on your best current main dps and shuffle around after
Venti - 5 Star Rosaria - 4 Star You're guaranteed 1 4 Star every ten wishes, just doing the event and commisions for the duration of her banner will get you prob 20 wishes regardless of what you spend on Venti, plus all 4 stars go into the Blue Wish category, meaning she'll be permanently available. Meaning if you want Venti go for Venti and don't stress about Rosaria, she'll be on a banner again long before Venti ever will.
Yup Diona and Xinyan were added to all banners just after Diona was added so it's seriously no big deal. Plus I don't get what would be a bummer. Just pull for what you want. If you don't get, that's life. It's a reason the playstyle is f2p anyways, can't always get what you want. I pulled Jean essentially 3 times in a row, as my Hu Tao and Ganyu's were off 100%'s. Pulled Jean first on Hu Tao's, First on Ganyu's and just before I pulled on ganyu's I got her off normal banner pity lol. Those were the last 5 5stars I got. Think before that was Qiqi back in around the time Klee was added lol
Actually, this is perfect for F2P players. A lot of us didn't get lucky enough to get a Venti and now is our chance to prepare ourselves for his banner. Same thing for Tartaglia
I agree, it's good for F2P players to see returning banners. But I think what the author means is that out of the two coming banners Venti's is most important and you may have to sink all your wishes there and miss out on Rosaria.
That's nonsense. Rosaria has a much higher chance to appear in other banners coming in the next months. Venti won't be around for quite a while after this, maybe even a year
I started playing around a month after the release of the game, so I missed out on venti. I know how amazing he is, so (except for getting a single razor drop) I haven't spent a single wish or primo gem. I have been playing basically everyday, saving up everything, missing out on everything, just so I could wish on venti when his banner drops again. If he doesn't drop for me, after my excruciating discipline, I'll be quitting the game...
oof, well i was planning on rosaria but im not risking pulling childe so close to pity
got qiqin when i was trying to get hu tao, so im ok for Rosaria, dont wanna childe.
Game lost momentum for me. I personally never got attached to the history and I'm not a fan of Gasha systems. F2P will always be far inferior from paying players and game always seek to turn you into a whale.
Not a bummer for me. I personally don't go for every banner just because of a shiny new character; I only go for the ones that would benefit my party most (most of the time I wish for duplicates so I can build up the constellations). As a result, I have tons of primogems saved up. The only character I don't have that I really WANT is Venti. His skills appeal to my playstyle and I started the game after he was made available so I missed out. I'm glad I'll be able to get him because I feel like my party will be 'complete' and any character I get after that will just be icing.
"But here’s the dilemma: do you try to go for Venti, or do you want the shiny new character Rosaria?" It's not a dilemma, you go for Venti, haha. Venti was a launch banner. Nobody really had any saved up primogems to have a good chance at getting him. It's great that they brought him back. Same thing kind of goes for Childe. He was early in the game and I know many were not close to their gold pulls yet. I like Childe. You don't have to have an archer on your team because he can pull out a bow as a second weapon.
Exactly. Even if you know almost nothing about the game, it's a no brainer, you go for venti.
