@wowfucktron I know this is not directly about Genshin, but I 100% shill Punishing: Gray Raven as a direct competitor to miHoYo's other game, Honkai Impact 3rd. It is so much more mechanically refined and f2p friendly than HI3. It even got a collab with Nier Automata recently for its CN server. No EN server yet, but CN, TW and JP are all live. Maybe one day we'll get a GI-styled game without the mhy fuckery, but not today. Either that, or play BoTW instead.
5-star weapons aren't on the event character banners.
5-star artifacts aren't available until AR30+. At that rank, they only drop from weekly bosses. Bosses like Pyro Regisvine start dropping them at world level 5 (AR40).

Alright who wants to punch me and wake me up?
I refuse to believe that the game is being this nice.
