I really wanna play this game but I don't wanna get addicted like I did with Maplestory because I ended up paying hundreds of $ on gacha items etc....Or is it not really required in this game?

Then you get to AR 30ish and the game just shits on you. Once you run out of quests, the game is a lot less friendly to progress. The only things you can do are put on time limits Getting rewards from Domains requires ‘resin’ , which very slowly recharges. Bosses that take a long while to respawn. Daily quests, which there’s only 4 each day. And the chests can take days to respawn. Not so fun at that point...

Honestly, if this game was the price of a AAA game, I would have bought it. It's just a shame that microtransactions are the norm due to them taking away from the experience and the overall fun factor.

I dunno. I tried genshin impact and it did a really really terrible job of making me care at all about its world or story. And not enough interesting mechanics were revealed to me at the start to make me see it as more of a slow grindy live service. I'm still very early in the prologue but god do I feel unmotivated to keep going.

If the only real comparison made to botw is the initial visual aspect, then it probably isn't one that should be used, rather thinking about what it does as an open world, which does seem to abide by the usual ubisoft open world formula of running down an endless checklist of collectable, sub objective and side quests which doesn't amount to much, or as yahtzee would put it, same shit, different wall paper, very nice wall paper though. It just a anime looking ubisoft open world in hindsight with some questionable decisions put into it.

Don't go into this game expecting a good co-op experience. What the reviewer does not mention is that co-op rewards for exploration are limited to nonexistent - every fruit and plant that your co-op partner grabs is one that you cannot grab, and co-op partners cannot take world chests or world items or get any benefit from them, either. So endgame players derive much more benefit running around in circles in their own worlds grabbing chest respawns that they've already seen half a dozen times, more than helping their friends level up and explore. Because they can't interact with 99% of the important things in their friend's worlds, and also don't get any exp or useful items from it. There's only one situation where co-op is beneficial, and that is certain limited dungeons and bosses where everyone can spend resin to get rewards. And even then, your more advanced friends won't benefit much because resin is limited and they'll need higher level materials and artifacts than your world can provide - you'll need to spend hours upon hours playing the game and leveling up to get to their level to make you worth playing with. **tl;dr** Great single player game pretending to be an MMO. The social experience is incredibly lacking and unrewarding. You can't play with your friends until 15 hours into the game, and even then 95% of the game is better off done solo as your friends will get little to no benefit co-oping with you for it.

Its easier to add content to your world when you can copypaste most of its design style, mechanics and so on... Not saying it takes value away from what they did, but nintendo invented it, genshi just expanded upon it, which is far easier (also much less restrictive hardware limitations).

So I'm guessing the developers were going for a look similar to Breath of the Wild. Out of the corner of my eye, I caught that short scene from 1:59 to about 2:05 (of the character gliding across and then attacking that enemy) and, for a second, I almost thought I was watching a video from BotW. Haha. If that's what they were going for, I'd say they succeeded.

There are micro transactions. The developers implemented a lootbox system in the form of 'wishes'. However it will not affect your gameplay experience. I suggest downloading the game and see for yourself.

I tried and I can say, the only downside for me, is that this is a gacha game, and therefore I can't play it, don't have the patient nor like the genre. If this was a single player game, no grinding bs, just a good rpg story-driven game, man... it would be awesome for me.. graphics are amazing, gameplay fantastic and crisp controls.. I love everything except the main design of the game, which is a grinding fest made for people to spend money on. I would gladly spend a full 60 dollars if this was a single player rpg, no microtransactions. Also, not very fond on the concept of swapping characters on the fly instead of a normal party.

This game is very F2P friendly that it actually makes me feel bad for playing it for free haha. I got the monthly pack to support the devs because I think this game has a lot of potential. I am adventure rank 25 now and tbh the gameplay gets a bit repetitive. Mostly just fight monsters and find chests. I think new game mechanics can spice up the gameplay besides this. And maybe fix their grueling gacha mechanic.

@Arif W. Outliers are outliers, what other players do outside of your personal experience is going to stay just that. I get there's that want for a new character and the gacha system is this grasp for hope for that character, but basing your experience and enjoyment of the game solely cause you dont have what you want, even in spite of the many free chances the game gives you, is just bland and odd. Furthermore, this game's differences between those character solely gotten through gacha and those freely given in game isnt much of a toss up. Kaeya, Lisa, Xiangling, and Noelle are all absolutely viable and worthwhile to use and dedicate exp and resources into to progress. Sure it's cool to get a 5 star but there's still a sole balance aspect throughout that wont just make one rare character a one-man-army.
