It's cool that they keep adding stuff to do, but when everything costs Resin you're stuck until it regenerates.

ID: guqoroh

I think the next update has some resin cost reductions for bosses which are the most expensive currently.

ID: guqowrg

That helps a little but the minibosses are still 40 which you need for leveling characters.

ID: guqerlx

Yeah, just spend a few dollars everyday. Like my addicted little brother.

ID: guqy3b1

Thats the point of the game, and why I wont play it.

ID: gur08yb

Because if there was no resin people would max their characters in a week and complain about the lack of content. If you want to play the game so badly you can still play it, you just won’t level up everyone immediately and have nothing to do

If only the rates weren't the worst of any gacha I've played, otherwise it's a fun game.

ID: guqyan7

Yea, i picked it up when they announced a PS5 version and wow its blown me away.

Visuals and gameplay are stunning, story is a bit boring but apparently a lot are into the lore so maybe that's just me and doesnt worsen the gameplay experience.

Also maybe it's because I'm not too far into the game yet but it's very surprising how much of the content you can access for free. All the future updates content is free be it events or new areas or new quests. And the map as it is now is huge and completely explorable for free, and every quest in the game can be done for free.

Additionally, the 4 star characters are extremely viable and strong if built correctly. I'd even go out on a limb and say bennett is the most useful character in the game and hes a 4 star.

But yea the rates are still quite bad as you said. And the characters locked behind it very appealing

ID: gur0nnr

You just have to accept that it takes a few months to pity a character. For example I just pitied Venti but am already half way to saving up primogems for the next banner I want, and I only pay $5 for welkin monthly. Plus the 4 star characters are great like you said anyway

ID: gur02mp

Never played another Gacha before but I feel like considering it takes 6 weeks for them to add a new character that the rates aren't that bad. Maybe when you compare them. But then again there has never been such a high quality Gacha game before.

I can't wish on every new 5 star and get it, but I can get quite a lot. I have Hu Tao plus the spear which I had saved for specifically. And now I've been saving and I got 40 pity and 85 fates. So I'm already close to a 100% 5 star again. Not to mention I very rarely do not get the new 5 star in the first pity.

Plus the RNG luck you are able to get of getting something sooner. For example I got Hu Tao C1 like 4 wishes after getting her, that's just insane luck. But you can also get it at 30 wishes or 55 etc. Doesn't always hit at 76 wishes but most of the time it does and 76 doesn't take super long imo.

Sweet. I've been playing this daily since launch and it can't be overstated how big of an upgrade PS4 to PS5 already was but sure I'll take another few seconds off the loading times.

No mention of haptics or adaptive triggers though which is a shame. I was really looking forward to them but maybe in the future.

ID: guqk56n

Did they mention an increased render distance somewhere?

Been waiting for the PS5 version to jump back in. Glad to know it’s coming this soon.

Nintendo switch players on suicide watch rn

ID: guqoh8d

Yeah May would have been the perfect time to release the game too, post MH Rise, no massive releases coming in the spring/summer until Skyward Sword/Miitopia/Golf. By the time they get off their asses to release it I don't know that I'll actually give a shit. Which is sad, it looks fun, but the pokemon remasters are around the corner after that, and if E3 gives us juicy shit, yet another reason to not bother.

I can't stand mobile on screen controller controls before anyone comments that I can play on my phone, and I'm not hooking up a controller to a fucking 2 year old iphone lmao.

ID: guqyjmq

Hey! My 2 year old iPhone is still pretty good lol

And yeah I hear you... sucks that they’re taking so long

7 : Anonymous2021/04/16 13:09 ID: gupxpp6

The building stuff sounds neat, ill jump back in with the update for sure.

8 : Anonymous2021/04/16 14:09 ID: guq588w

I tried it for an hour or so and tried it again recently and am amazed I can’t start again from the beginning. There’s no way to start a new character.

ID: guqjl8r

Yeah, people would re-roll trying to unlock better characters. It’s a stupid self-imposed problem.

9 : Anonymous2021/04/16 17:20 ID: guqvo7y

Won’t play on PS4/5 until they add cloud/cross-save with the mobile version. It’s stupid of Sony to still be restrictive on a case-by-case basis in this space.

10 : Anonymous2021/04/16 13:55 ID: guq3bo3

Give us crossplay with all other platforms for the love of god !

ID: guqycsp

You mean cross-save. That's playstation's doing. Your account stays on playstation so you're unable to play with your playstation account save on a PC/Mobile, while PC/Mobile players can play on either using their same account saved game. You can crossplay between PS and PC/Mobile with no restrictions.

ID: guqi8ow

Nope. They don't want you rerolling on console or having console players frustrated after encountering God tier mobile rerolls.

ID: guqusg9

Did they remove being able to play with people on mobile?

11 : Anonymous2021/04/16 13:07 ID: gupxjv0

I still Dk what this game is besides its F2P

ID: gupxtu3

Gotcha Game with a Zelda BotW skin on top of it. If you're a fan of Zelda it's worth checking out. Easily 30 to 40 hours of fun gameplay to be had without the need to drop any money.

ID: guq42vd


ID: guq1upa

Is it single Player?

ID: gupxna1

Zelda Breath of the Wild clone with anime characters, it’s good.

ID: guqo46l

It shares a similar art style and a terrain traversal / stamina system, but that’s really about it for similarities.

12 : Anonymous2021/04/16 15:11 ID: guqdoav

Should I get into this game? How much do the MTX stop progression/ruin the fun? I'm willing to pay little amounts of money but if everything is behind a paywall then nope

ID: guqf9bc

There is no need to ever pay for anything, people have completed even the most difficult content with nothing but the starter characters.

I'm at AR55 (highest difficulty) and have never spent a dime and the only content that I'm still struggling a little with is the Abyss floor 12. Which is the absolute end of end game and not required at all for progression. With some tweaks to my parties I should have no problem overcoming it soon.

ID: guqjvz3

I enjoy the gameplay, but the casino system for unlocking new characters is terrible and ruined it for me.

13 : Anonymous2021/04/16 15:41 ID: guqhus6


14 : Anonymous2021/04/16 17:06 ID: guqtrl7

I hope they reduce the pop in.

15 : Anonymous2021/04/16 17:28 ID: guqwv9i

It'd be nice if it had Crossplay with PC, like how PC has crossplay with other platforms.

16 : Anonymous2021/04/16 15:52 ID: guqjcba

Enjoyed the gameplay, but the casino method to unlock new characters totally ruined it for me and left an extremely bad taste. Can’t recommend.

Also not convinced that they’ll ever really finish the vast majority of the map that they hint at.

ID: gur6n53

There’s been two massive additions to the map since October. The next expansion drops another land mass.

17 : Anonymous2021/04/16 14:40 ID: guq9e3q

ppl says this is a pay-to-win game, is this true?

ID: guqjdyq

if ur talking about the ability to max a character asap then is definitely less generous if you were to compare it to their other game called Honkai Impact

ID: guqfedo

You don't need to pay a dime to just play.

People get sucked in by making their character the most powerful, but there is no pvp so there really is no put.

But people like big numbers.

I play with ky little brother and he's sucked in money wise, but he loves these type of games.

ID: guqjzbn

If you want any characters other than the starting handouts, then yes.

ID: guqif9a

It is. Endgame Progression needs top tier characters with maxed stats it would take months of grinding to generate ftp. Don't believe the lies.

ID: guqb0s9

It's not.

ID: guqbhei

It's got gacha mechanics, take that how you will

ID: guqi0je

It's only pay-to-win if you compare with others. You can play solo just fine and completely free and still get enjoyment out of it.

Gacha mechanics is where the game takes a turn, it's similar to unboxing player packs in FIFA, for example, and people are mixed about that.

But the "game" itself is completely free, with only endgame content (abyss) needing time invested to get good builds.

18 : Anonymous2021/04/16 14:24 ID: guq757r

Stable frame rate this time?

19 : Anonymous2021/04/16 15:54 ID: guqjmt5

I hope this comes to SeriesX. Simply because I haven’t been able to find a PS5 yet and my PS4 is dying so literally every game runs like garbage on it.

20 : Anonymous2021/04/16 13:27 ID: gupzvqo

Don’t really get what people see in this game. It’s a pretty generic F2P Zelda clone with some cringe anime characters

ID: guqkqj0

yawn, people still comparing it to Zelda?

22 : Anonymous2021/04/16 13:04 ID: gupx568

Sweet, hopefully some content for us to play too since there's not much to do in the game atm

Sorry if this has already been asked/answered but will the data from the back-wards compatible version currently on ps5 transfer to the new native version?

26 : Anonymous2021/04/16 17:57 ID: gur0tcv

Is this game still bad for co-op? My friend and I considered it but a lot of articles saying it wasn't worth playing co-op.

27 : Anonymous2021/04/16 23:46 ID: gus8w0s

So this version will need to be installed on the internal then?

28 : Anonymous2021/04/17 00:55 ID: gusgktu

They need to bring crosssave or account linkimg

29 : Anonymous2021/04/16 18:40 ID: gur6n49

Why do people play this when there’s infinite anime porn on the internet already?

30 : Anonymous2021/04/16 14:27 ID: guq7m93

The PS4 version played on PS5 already is 4K and has super fast loading times on SSD. It's also a fairly stable 60fps. Why exactly is this needed at all? There didn't seem to be any mention of using the cards or dualsense features either.

31 : Anonymous2021/04/16 14:50 ID: guqas1z

I don't think the PS4 was native 4k - could be wrong. Frame rate definitely wasn't steady depending on the area you were in. Enhanced textures and hopefully draw distance as well - it was pretty bad on PS4.

32 : Anonymous2021/04/16 14:43 ID: guq9r5f

So what do I do if I have it already on my PS5? Do I download it again or download a different version or what? I've been playing for like a week and am in love with this game so getting an upgrade right now is awesome !

33 : Anonymous2021/04/16 16:42 ID: guqqefj

Once the PS5 version is live, you would need to download that version.
