It's very cool and fun but I don't have enough time in my life to dedicate to this game. I will probably give it another shot when the game is fully complete though.

I had my fun. The world is big, and they really are sticking to their guns of releasing a new nation each year. With 5 now there may be enough for anyone to just explore if they cared.
Unfortunately its biggest sin (aside from gacha but I was F2P so I barely engaged with it) is having the most padded dialogues on its existence. It threw me away from interacting with any quest ever again, even archon ones. They can't be skipped without button mashing, and even then there is a slight random delay before you can do so (to let animations finish?). This is the main reason it isn't 4.5*. There is a line between organic, fun dialogue and what's obviously padding and repetition.
I would complain about difficulty but some puzzles are rough and I barely built any characters aside from Amber so maybe I deserved it. She's best girl regardless.
I'll probably come back to check on my teapot each often. I'm really proud of it even though it's shit.

It gets good after you type rule 34 Genshin Impact.

Started playing this game in the first month of the launch and enjoyed it in it's early days hoping for a better future of the game. It has been nearly 3 years now and I can say that I want a refund for the time wasted in this game. There's no content besides the story which I personally don't really enjoy, it's not bad but doesn't fulfil my desire for the game. The developers are really greedy with the banners and the game overall and I find it amusing that even with P2W you still need to lock yourself in a room to endlessly farm artifacts and so on and you don't get nothing worth your while. The art team of this game is carrying it's existence because besides the world and characters art the game is boring and tedious, barely any enemies variation and no difficulty at all, the difficulty is high health and to counter that you need to farm the artifacts or get constellations (referring to the abysm). Don't really recommend anyone to play this since you will most likely get addicted and the at a certain time will realise that all the time wasted on it was a mistake.

Never trust someone who plays this

I came back to the game for the first time in about 2 years and I'm slowly making my way through new content and trying to give it all a fair chance. When you're not as hooked up on the meta and gacha, it becomes a pretty enjoyable experience. I got to take in the atmosphere and story much more this time around and found myself enjoying some of the story content. A lot of it is still needlessly wordy and requires too much lore reading, but I can say it's passable now. The game truly shines in its exploration as the newer areas have better level design, especially in comparison to Liyue and Mondstadt. When you're not obsessed with keeping up with the game and logging in consistently, it can be a pretty cozy and relaxing before bed game.
