About Genshin

Why did i start playing Genshin?
I have been following genshin, especially the art community since launch. So i knew whats the game about and i know i will like it if i do play it.
However i never actually get to play the game because i had no time to invest into the game itself, on top of it i also tend to avoid gacha games.

A friend of mine has been really excited about Nahida being teased to release in 3.2, so they asked me to play genshin with them.
At the moment i have more than a month break period, having nothing to do i decided it'd be fun to finally pick genshin up. So being a literal fresh sprout i finally step into genshin on the 1st of October 2022.
The reality of it
Honestly, genshin is exactly as what i expected it to be. I knew the exploration side of it is going to be great, what i did not expect however; is that rolling all the way from Mondstadt to Sumeru with Sayu, to be the most enjoyable moment in the game for me.

As far as combat goes i really like Hyperbloom and Nilou's Bountiful Cores. The imagination of launching and exploding starfruit mid-combat in my head is probably way more entertaining than what really is going on in-game. 22nd October 2022
After 3 weeks of playing i finally hit AR 45, and since i finished Inazuma archon quest my plan now: make friends and take it slow, do exploration + artifact farm on the side
I am currently exploring Inazuma but since i have phobia of large bodies of water, it is really hard to explore by myself. So if you want to backseat and hold my hand through Inazuma feel free to reach out! 1st November 2022
It's been officially a month since i started playing genshin and also half-way through my holidays ;-;
Been playing a lot of co-op recently and my new excitement in game right now is riding boats together with friends while screaming in voice chat!
Am very excited for patch 3.2!
14th November 2022
Andddd holiday is officially over, so i can't play Genshin all the time anymore, however considering i did get to AR 52, cleared Spiral Abyss and get a lot of friends, i think this journey was a successful one!
Also this new fungi event is the best thing in the game, i love me my anemo shroom

8th August 2023
Been a while here's a short update before Fontaine release~
I am currently looking for more friends that can sit in VC and hold my hands through Fontaine exploration because i am TERRIFIED of underwater exploration
Fav Characters?
Furina, Nilou, Hu Tao, Faruzan, Kazuha, Heizou, Yae, Kaveh, Kirara

I can be a bit talkactive and excited at times, so i hope thats fine for you~
Looking forward to talking with you!

Oh also fun fact for you who read this, if you are wondering why my account UID starts with 63 despite me being new; I really like Hu Tao as a character and on top of that i really like a lot of Characters Rie Takahashi voiced (Most noteably Ramizel & Mashu) I really wanted Hu Tao & my friend was nice enough to give me their account which has Hu Tao at AR 12!
