Thank you for sponsoring this video, #Project_Mechadoge :D
In this video, I go on a retrospective and re-review the Wanderer with the latest and greatest data we have at our disposal. The data is... well, sales basically and some general polling I did on you guys but it does reveal quite a few things that I think is worth enough to make a video about it. After all - we gotta see for ourselves why do people keep saying Scaramid when in reality - its Fandango time...

Sorry for no TCG videos yet, I just had a surgery and still recovering :(
Help out my channel by downloading Project Mechadoge! ggcont.me/3FvDSIE
It's a cute doggy game :D
I think Hoyoverse is preparing us to fight The Abyss King Apollyon & I don't think we will be able to defeat the Night Mother a.k.a. The Abyss without external help. 😉
Speedy recovery dude!
Take your time homie, and get well soon. I wish you the best
I don't like TCG anyway. I won a game against Mona and all she did is ask Oz to attack me and I didn't even get any award for winning so I decided I won't even play it. I despise card games to begin with. Would tolerate it if awards actually worked
Meta is temporary, fandango is eternal
Fan of dando
The poor boy is eternal
The nerds that obsess over Meta in a non-competitive pve game should be mocked and then ignored.
Not gonna lie, I used to get really annoyed at Scara simps, but Wanderer has single-handedly made me fall in love with Genshin all over again. He’s insanely fun to play and has made me discard meta altogether, now I just farm mob materials and get 100% exploration on every map because it’s just that fun to go around doing aerial combat! I swear I’m still not over his little Raiden circle turning into two turbines when he fly-sprints, he’s like an edgy Astroboy and I adore him.
@Artaleas Ham No I’m actually super gay, thanks for asking though!
@Aru really straight?
@Sapphire Wilhelm straight
@The Turtle straight
I consider myself a simp, but I"m also a new genshin player, so I have not encountered any people yet ingame or other places until right now.
Mind if I ask in what way we are annoying?
You have no idea how much the CN fandom loves him. A very large part of the CN online culture makes it so that his type of character is extremely likeable.
@Алиса Грин most of the characters sound best in cn tbh. and although en is my least fav, i can at least understand ppl who use it to understand the story better. what i find most annoying is weebs who screams jp dub is always superior when a lot of the charcters sound just as annoying there as they do in en.
@WonyoIVE on god i thought i was the only one who didn't like wanderer's japanese voice. i was so caught off guard when i first heard it while playing inazuma aq, the voice doesn't suit him at all 😭😭
@Niko Angelo YES
@Алиса Грин KANA SUPREMACY
@Haru Yanto It's so good to see Kana's voice enjoyers in comments! I wish more ppl knew about how characters sound in original before calling them edgelords just because of Eng or Jp dub :(
Honesty speaking, playing since version 1.2 Scaramouche is probably the first 5 star character that I pulled for just because he looks so fun to play. I didn’t think for a single time about his position in meta or how good he will perform. Only thing I cared that he looks so unique and super satisfying in terms of gameplay. However I think still he is a solid option if you can properly build him, at least he is in second tier from top.
@dizzle grizzle it can happen. my other account is a year old and first time pulled for fun was nilou coz i got her weapon accidentally instead of PJC and xiphos. then got nahida next banner... now waiting on kokomi banner rerun.
best accident i had in that account with the nilou bloom team
@heelercs dunno man... i have xiao and i have always believed its c0 or c6. everything else in between is trivial
c1r1 (ran out of primos now im at 72 pity)
180 summons spent ( high pity when banner started then early. got lucky with weapon)
lvl 90 15 minutes after he came out
36* spiral abyss
220/70 sig set.
no regrets. having the most fun ive had playing this game. havent used morgana since he came out.
Nah, wouldn't say second tier from top, top tier is raiden, ayaka, xiangling, xingqiu, the most meta units, second from top is childe, ayato, kuki, dendro mc, meta but not the top of the meta units, scara is 3rd or 4th tier from top
@D4RKL0RD1470 lol yeah I personally like his lore and I’m crazy for the colors, there’s just a lot of weird people who obsess over him.
What I’m enjoying is having a hypercarry that isn’t dependent on bursting. That’s why I rolled for him. It’s so frustrating having to tiptoe around Xiao or Cyno’s energy. With wanderer I don’t have to worry about that.
@JVGrace22 hu tao and ayato aren't strictly hypercarries. They rely more on reactions than on buffs to deal damage. Unless you're playing a physical hypercarry ayato or hutao (kekw pls don't) or a monoelement team, the damage from your ""hypercarry"" hutao and ayato is coming from the fact that you have elemental reactions going on, they scale nicely with the right amount of EM, etc etc.
Wanderer is a _true_ hypercarry in every sense of the world. He's anemo; yet cc, swirl and em are meaningless to him. He's not a reaction carry. he's not _any_ kind of reaction-oriented dmg anything. It comes down to his base atk, his crit values, and his teammates giving buffs/support and swapping out, pure and simple.
@fr Yoimiyas burst is USELESS, her normal attacks with her E are only good. They're GOOD, I have a showcase on my channel.
Meanwhile hu tao and ayato: "guess we don't exist"
@Haru Yanto No tf it doesn't??
This makes him future proof, tbh many characters nowadays focus more on NA attacks, even their burst becomes NA attacks
I run Wanderer with Layla for shielding, plus I get that 20% crit rate from his ascension passive with her cryo application. I think people make his low resistance to interruption seem like a bigger issue than it actually is. Just use a shield, same thing you'd do with Yoimiya, Ganyu, Hu Tao, Cyno, etc.
I mean if you click the sprint button while being knocked back you pivot and stop falling tho
@Velda well ppl saying 4 star can get anytime is wrong, you still have to wait for rerun, in my 2nd account even c1 wanderer cannot get a single faruzan
right like most players put a shielder in their teams anyway, so wanderer's resistance shouldn't be much of an issue.. besides, if you get used to playing him, you can easily dodge by taking advantage of his passive and perfect timing. any other problems aside from that is just skill issue atp. it's really easy to play him
Dodging isn't that hard either I can perfectly dodge attacks in the air and if you time it right you can dodge when you get his A4 passive so it doesn't consume stamina
Yea and C4 Layla buffs normal and charged attacks too
I played Genshin from the start, and pulled for lots of characters, now I’m at a state where if I don’t pull a single more character, I can finish whatever content Hoyo update.
So if I still wanting to pull a character, it’s because I love the story or the design. I’m happy with Wanderer’s story because Hoyo didn’t simply give him a new name and tell us he is a good guy, the fact he is still bad and he accepts himself been bad is very good storytelling. And thats why I pulled for him, not for power or playstyle, only because the game quality amazed me.
It's basically why I got Faruzan.
I don't need her constellations... I simply built her because I like her design and skill animations.
Since I don't really care about Abyss, I can do anything overworld anyway even with my OG team.
Same. I already have numerous meta team for doing the hard work on the abyss, so there's no need for new one.
Wanderer on the other hand, I love his design and playstyle. Lucky for me, I've got C2 wanderer with 150 pull (trying to pull for C6 Faruzan, but only got 2 copies of her)
Same, I simply wanted him because I liked him and didn't plan to build him at all. But I'm so tempted to build him for overworld gameplay because he looks so fun
Folks pretending like the other DPS characters doesn't use Shielders/C6 4-star characters for their peak DPS potential.
I had zero instention of getting wanderer. Had no idea what all the hype was over his design back when he was introduced at the beginning of the game. Then I did the demo for the 20 primogems and his mechanics were easily the most fun I've ever had in the game. Insta pull. Very fun character design.
@Epic Gamer Lol: His flying capabilitys are already limited by "stamina" consumption (flying stamina not normal stamina).
This means: He is already balanced!
Theire is no need to limit his flying capabilitys any further with reduced movement patterns. Despite the fact that Hoyoverse didn't had the time to do it properly (same goes for the input delay between press E and press Space, both are bugs and signs of clunkyness and has nothing to do with balance).
So your argument about balancing is not valid.
Please think more and simp less.
@Epic Gamer its a flying character. All characters in ALL games can fly in ALL directions. Not only in Minecraft. IN ALL GAMES.
Lets do the robot dance: up, front, up, front, up, front
You have zero problems with him flying like a dumb robot??? Realy?
Or are you trying to explain it with: Hes a puppet, all puppets fly like a robot?
And why should i touch grass. How should i fly in real life? Oh with an airplane or a helicopter, guess what, both can fly forward AND upwards at the same time!
@Epic Gamer he flys like a robot: space=upwards, w=forward, BOTH DOESNT WORK AT THE SAME TIME
Scaramouche is probably one of the most popular Genshin characters. His voice is famous in tiktok too and even non genshin players duet his voicelines lol
@Chaos Infernoid wtf
@Chaos Infernoid lololol!
I mean people on tiktok also licked toilet seats. These are the same people. 💀
that's interesting! don't stay much on tiktok but i heard genshin is thriving there!
One of the main problems Wanderer has is his low resistance to interruption while in being in flying mode, enemies just knock him down which reduces potential dps points
just get good lol
Guy needs a geodaddy or geomommy
@L amp Precisely!
I feel like he was meant to be used with a shielder, esp to make C0 shielders more viable. C6 Thoma buffs normal and charged attacks (finally making Thoma even more viable, especially after Burgeon came too), C4 Layla buffs normal and charged attacks as well, Zhongli ofc shreds resistance and can hold Tenacity set, together with Yunjin who buffs flat normal attack damage (making Geo resonance possible). And then with Xingqiu who gives increased resistance interruption and makes him stay flying longer (more damage). Hoyoverse was smart on this tbh..
I personally didnt have trouble with him getting hit thanks to his passive with the free air dash, i get the passive quite consistently so i dont bring a shielder and instead focus on all the dmg possible with faruzan, bennet and yelan (i never used a shielder for hu tao so im already used to dodging alot)
Let us not forget the fact that he was the 6th Fatui Harbinger. There are people who likes to collect them like the players who own archons.
Yesss, I'm collecting all Fatui Harbringer. Too bad that Signora isn't playable😢
"You get to feel like you are playing the characters"
Me: *Noelle & Wanderer main* EXACTLY.
Me : *Eula main* YES.
@VVabsa right , if in the near future one single good hydro support character comes out then childe or ayato will become super op too .
@Kinsu Mandal Yep, just play the game you want to. Tho I do hope that every element gets the ability to be solo. So far only Geo and now Anemo has. Maybe Hydro since Childe and Ayato are quite good dpsers but as far as I know, no hydro support like Faruzan or Gorou.
I do like Hoyo is making those options available.
I was dead set on getting raiden or save for haitham but then his little helicopter was marketed and I was sold, he's so cute!
he's terribly fun to explore the open world. I can still only 33 abyss but I've decided that is fine. genshin to me is an adventure game first, a combat game second and wanderer has made my recent journeys so exciting and fun
I got Al haitham as well he's very stylish lol :) some characters are cool AND meta I hope I can farm primos from abyss fully someday but that time isn't any time soon and I don't want to stress about it
@JVGrace22 same i pulled meta units so that i could get my husbandos
I advice yo to pull for some OP characters sometimes as well. When you can do 36 stars abyss, then you'll gonna feel like you're totally free to use your primogems on anything. Btw i was also going for alhaitham, but scaramouche can fly and it's fun while alhaitham it's literly keqing with dendro element XD
Thats the right way to play, if you keep aiming for meta, the game will get boring fast. Its an open world game, so just enjoy it. Forget the meta and aim for the fun.
I mean this isn't surprising. The true endgame is now to just pull for characters you like independent of how "broken" they are. Most of us can 36 star abyss without any problem so pulling for meta units is no longer a need
@Yey T samee i benched hu tao because her gameplay is not for me
I’m like over here pulling for characters I like and not being able to 36* abyss once by myself (someone else used my acc and got 36* for me once) even though I’m like endgame or whatever at ar59
Sometimes I wonder what tf I did wrong
@Prankster when I was a new f2p player (I'm not new anymore nut still f2p) I didn't care about meta, why? Because new players are not worried about completing the abyss or having the super strong powerful characters, they don't even know how to build characters yet, they are concerned with finishing the quests, exploring and gaining primos. When I finished all my quests I already had 4 five stars and 1 five star weapon, I didn't build because I don't care, but if I did I could easily finish the abyss. The fun for me since the beggining was playing with the characters I liked to play. I was saving for scaramouche since the beginning of the game, when Kazuha first came out I didn't want him at all, but then I saw his playstyle and his banner art and I instantly pulled for him, that's it, no thinking about meta or power
@Fidel Mendez i Just honestly want to play the game and have fun, without having to do "homework" for It🙃
@D4RKL0RD1470 You are NOT alone. MOST players in Genshin ARE like you. Don't listen to "veterans" that cries about "no end game" and that "most of us" can 36 abyss. BS. I'm AR60 and I don't always 36 abyss. This time I did "only" 35. ;-)
Honestly, hes just so fun to play. Hes really different from a lot of the other chars and yeah, hes not meta level but hes definitely not struggling to go through content
Wanderer is the first character to actually make me enjoy team building. Obviously you want Faruzan to fill in one slot, especially if she's C6, but the amount of freedom you have for the other 2 is amazing. After building both Thoma and Layla for him, my Mora has never been so low lol
@recurring dream Depends on your needs, I use them both interchangeably. Both work great with him, one just gives him an ATK boost and the other a Crit Rate boost.
Heyy, sorry to ask 2 months later😅 but who do you believe is better for him, Thoma or Layla? Sadly I don't have her, but my Thoma is c6 and I'm hesitating between fully committing to building him or waiting for Layla
I think we're at the point where we can just go for characters we like. Most of the good supports are early characters so you'll bound to get them sooner or later. Now if only they could update Paimon's Bargain so we can some constellations for the recent 4 stars that'll be great lol. I have no interest in Wanderer, Itto or Genshin Miku so it's a shame I have to skip Gorou again since I'm saving for Dehya It would've been nice to just buy Gorou from the shop so I can try some mono geo teams.
Well that's a rip...
Who are you gonna pull for then?
Since Dehya was killed off by hoyo
@Tek Rar trust me... there's a possibility for dehya to not use what you've saved for her XD i also want her btw
I've got a GOLDEN crimson witch set for Dehya and WGS, can't wait for the baddest bitch in Sumeru to come home! 🎉🎊
Agree since at this time a lot of players already have a built team to clear or do abyss 36*
Wanderer didnt WOW me at first(most units don't as usual). But after building him, his dmg became quite impressive (at lv8 skills, his normal attacks 11-22k per hit, even up to 33k with buffs, that's literally normal attacks!!!, He has fast normal attacks, so that's a lot of dmg) and fighting exploring with him, oh my god I LOVE the experience. He can reach so fast and auto aim, I barely have to reposition and move around. He clears a group of enemies really fast without using any team ult (I just use zhongli and wanderer) so no need to annoyingly rely on ult (during expiration) have yet to try him in abyss tho(already 36 starred abyss before I got him)
@FAISAL believe or not, dmg would be much higher with Faruzan. Mine deals around the same amount of dmg completely solo (meaning no teammates at all, it's just fun to kill everything that moves with Wanderer alone lol). He's double crowned, good build with skyward atlas (no signature artifacts yet though).
@ᴍᴀᴇsʜɪ c0 faruzan lol
@鹿鹿梦 x Somili He thought you have c6 faruzan thats why your wanderer deals alot according to him
Faruza c6 with 260 ER
After playing with wanderer, I fell in love with it completely and flew around.
I feel like he was meant to be used with a shielder, esp to make C0 shielders more viable. C6 Thoma buffs normal and charged attacks (finally making Thoma even more viable, especially after Burgeon came too), C4 Layla buffs normal and charged attacks as well, Zhongli ofc shreds resistance and can hold Tenacity set, together with Yunjin who buffs flat normal attack damage (making Geo resonance possible). And then with Xingqiu who gives increased resistance interruption and makes him stay flying longer (more damage). Hoyoverse was smart on this tbh since they knew he is gonna be popular and then pair with not so popular 4 star units.
For me, he is just the most fun in the game. His flight is so much fun in combat, and running him with reaction teams is so many numbers that I find so satisfying
Using cyno for a long time during his burst is probably one of the things I like about his gameplay, he looks so cool
He is probably one of the fastest electro enabler as well. People misunderstood his gameplay while in fact he is made for reaction driver and dps for both aggaravate and hyperbloom. I mean seriously he can house all three reaction at the same time.
I rolled for him because I wanted to fly and his story arc was really interesting! He’s really fun, saving for Alhaitham and Kaveh next!
One thing that hoyoverse keeps doing weirdly enough is when new characters are released (with exception of like kokomi and such) they make the abyss rotation for them a pain and a half. Like when raiden came out, there was an electro aura on both sides that made her really bad in that rotation
He’s a glass cannon. Everyone please get over the fact he has low poise. Ayato and Yelan have huge HP so makes sense they are immovable. He’ll become overturned otherwise.
@Backpack PePelon His dmg's not worse than Yoimiya's. I have both at C2R1, and Yomi deals just a little bit more dmg to a single target in Yelan, bennet, Kazuha team than Wanderer in Yun jin, Faruzan, bennet team. You can also kill clumbs of enemies with wanderer using Venti if needed, which doesn't apply to Yomi. Also- I recommend taking a look at a 3.2 abyss speedrun ladders. He performs pretty well, especially considering that people has to use shime on him for now, since there haven't been enough time to farm his sig set.
Hutao, yoimiya, or ganyu that's soft and can deal massive damage is the right glass cannon. Wanderer are weird because his damage outputs are far lower than those. Yae is also a glass cannon, but she's not a normal attackers unit so won't be out for as long as wanderer or any other glass cannon unit. The closest thing to wanderer style and role so far is heizo, but heizo is weirdly tanky for catalyst users, so he don't have wanderer problem. I think wanderer is meant to be bruisers, and not glass cannon, but hoyoverse fvked up his resistance.
By your logic I guess raiden is overtuned then 🤷🏽♂️
Glass cannon? LMAO more like a nerf gun mosquito 😂
Salty comments in there but yea he has low multipliers and dmg 😂 no cannon only glass
As a ar60 player. I dont pull for "meta" or strong character anymore. I pull the character who I find fun to play.
Honestly speaking, it’s nice to see wanderer with some pros and cons because if there’s non then he would’ve been too overpowered, without cc and resistance to interruption he becomes vulnerable as any dps out there, come to think of it, almost every anemo character actually has the most insane play style: Xiao, Kazuha, Scaramouche, Heizou, (I’m a venti dps main😅).
kudos to dps Venti main! i clear every abyss with him just because he can and i love him
I didn’t care for scaradouche until I saw his kit, the amazing quest sealed the deal for me and I kind of fell in love with the character, I’m real happy to join the scaranation.
I'm so satisfied with Wanderer that I don't think I will be pulling for a new character anytime soon (even tho Alhaitham looks rad), rather I will focus on characters i already own and build some fun teams that echance Scara's playstyle even further
Easy 10/10 character if we're talking pure gameplay fun
Scaramouche: flies and it's fun but hardly does a lot of dmg if dont invest a lot
Al haitham: probably gonna do more dmg than scaramouche, but it's literally keqing turned into a man who uses dendro element
Honestly same. I was dead set on getting him and Al-haitham but, scara just makes me want to wait for another unique gameplay character. Especially if they're Anemo. Playing him made me realize how bored I was with pulling new chars just for the sake of pulling. I used to pull for fun factor, then meta, and now yeah, meta is temporary lmao.
Hutao, ganyu, raiden and eula are benched. Don't even bother with them in abyss and still can 36*. Ayato is also just, brain dead gameplay. While chars like Fischl, Childe, kazuha, xiao, jean, albedo, tighnari, yoimiya or heizou are just still fun and I play them a lot.
His ascension 4 passive is so damn fun, feels so satisfying to play
As soon as I tested Wanderer I KNEW he wasn't going to be great for most people in the Spiral Abyss, including me. But I didn't get him because of the Spiral Abyss. I got him because his playstyle is fun and unique, and he makes exploration interesting. I can safely beat Spiral Abyss with my other characters, so now I don't even think about whether a character will be "meta" when i pull for them. I just pull for whoever I want. (I do think his lack of any sort of interruption resistance while airborne is pretty stupid tho)
@Sofie Berger copium
@Sofie Berger yeah, you do have a point.
@J Doe if you want to use him in this abyss's (with less than a day remaining) floor 12, put him in the second part with shield and pyro.
Personally, I don't like the dynamic in this abyss because of the specifics of the two world bosses they added. And the fact that those annoying hounds just spawns separately which is annoying tbh.
I did finish the abyss flr 12 36 stars 4x with diff wanderer team comps. So I say he's good, you just need a little push compared to other characters.
Personally I can clear at least up to floor 11 with him with no problem in the Abyss, and just use a different team for floor 12. There's no rule that says you have to use the same teams all the time for all floors and after over 2 years of playing it's not like I don't have other teams to choose from.
@D4RKL0RD1470 they could easily have implemented that he can only use his skill "once" in mid air.
Or that his cooldown only starts after beeing on the ground.
This is a computer game. So many possibilitys to make it "not clunky".
Its good that you like him.
Sorry i cant get used to the fact that he can't move diagonal. I definitaly prefer Kazuha for any tree or hill climbing. But again, its good that you don't have the problems i have with him.
What I actually like about him is his passive xd finally elemental shielder are at an advantage compared to Zhongli. Wanderer doesn’t get hit this often, so the shield doesn’t need to be this thick. Plus he really enjoys the CR or atk buff
Wish you a speedy recovery! Your videos are always awesome, so the wait is worth it, no matter how long it is :D
Once you can clear the abyss comfortably, fun ad unique becomes the new criteria for pulling new characters specially since they keep on just copy pasting skills and burst of old 4* and just make them 5* or a different element 💀
@Prankster to be fair those characters can still be really fun to play while being the strongest ones in genshin so it's a win win situation
@Prankster kazhuha? Not fun? What are you on lmao
@Soul My guy, you have "I have been playing since launch" and "I had Venti too, but he was unbuilt." in almost the same sentence... and you're asking ME if I'm trolling?!
@Prankster so is it a game with no endgame content or not?
honestly, was saving for Hutao, Ayaka or Raiden(if the former 2 is not gonna rerun soon), end up pulling for Wanderer because he is probably the most fun character in Genshin so far, the ability to just hover over stuff is really fun to do
I was gonna skip him but between the interlude chapter’s redemption arc and the flying aspect of his playstyle, I even swiped a little bit for him bc I lost 50/50 and ran out of fates lmao now to save for Alhaitham
Love how strong you're mate..
Good luck with haitham.
Wanderer is so much fun to play. He’s also been easy to build for me! I think it’s very interesting that a lot of his kit is based off of attack speed- his best artifact boosts ATK speed and so does his weapon! I’ve been waiting for something like that for a minute.
He’s iconic n gives us nostalgia. If he did one dmg I would still pull for him ✌🏼 Yan Fei n Gorou keep coming home pls hoyoverse make it stoop I want one Faruzan
I am still at Adventure rank 33 , I got wanderer at 70th roll (it was sheer luck) for some reasons people don't seem to like him much, but the situation I am currently in he is the one who is carrying everything.
He's a lot of fun to play and extremely good at exploration, but I feel kinda bad about Faruzan. I know I can't C6 her anytime soon, but having that would make my wanderer amazing in the abyss as well.
Yeah, I feel the same way. I just CAN'T spend anymore primos rn to get her C6 and I already have both Wanderer and Itto. I'm afraid I'll have to wait till his next rerun to C6 her, at least I got C2 😔
I pulled him because i find male mages quite fun and satisfyingto play. And after knowing Jester was a Royal Mage too, it piqued my interest.
He's SO FUN !!! Versatile, unique, and he's gonna get better in the long run!
I saved up for him cause I love him as a charcter, but im happy with him as a unite! And I will keep pulling for cons, but I did stumble and got Nahida too ...😳
his banner really does well considering a lot of scara stans have hundreds of fates already saved for him
I've been playing Genshin since 1.0 and honestly, at some point you'll stop even needing meta. You'll arrive at the point where your current units are enough to beat up difficult content like the spiral abyss, and maybe even arrive at the point where meta pulling burns you out from your account. Wanderer actually motivated me to 100% the forest area which I have been holding off for several updates, encouraged me to play long hours on the game again, all because he was fun and I wanted to keep playing him because I was finally enjoying myself again after a very long time.
Its been said multiple times before but really, pull who you like and find enjoyable, disregard the meta and just ignore whoever discourages you to pull someone you want just because they're "mid". Genshin's a very casual game and personally, having fun is the most important thing else you'll risk demotivation and burn out.
People who are talking about Wanderer resistance to interruption, just look at low HP Hu tao or archer Ganyu. How did you manage to play them? Consider same for Wanderer.
@starry sky ofc its more consistent, but you said she required c6 xingqiu to do good dmg. the more damage is better obviously but she can do good damage with just c0 xq.
@starry sky Not foolproof without Zhongli but two 5 stars really isn't that pricy (especially since Zhongli is an easy sell for anyone running even remotely vulnerable DPS units) and I used to run without him for quite a while. A bit of extra cryo or CC in place of shields is not typically an issue especially since Bennet and Diona are healers.
@Phi N i used nerf more as a lose term. my point was anemo is already a strong element that they got to look profit somehow by making their supports expensive (C2 venti, C4 jean, C4 albedo for xiao). are they necessary though? no. you can give anemo dps different teams that don't require anemo shredder/dmg booster.
also, faruzan is already a good support for wanderer at C2. he isn't energy hungry that they can work together without faruzan being C6.
@MilkCalf in melt team ganyu gets staggered easily that people rarely play her without zhongli, who is a 5 star. sucrose is good support at the risk of ganyu getting staggered, which leaves diona and layla. layla can steal melt, leaving diona. however, her shield isn't as tanky as zhongli, who's still the preferred choice for comfortable gameplay.
@Hyunho Just pointing it out because they implied you have to bring 5 stars to play a Ganuy meta comp.
I wasn’t going to pull for him, honestly the Scara fandom on tiktok made me not want to do it even more. After the character trial, I enjoyed it so much that I got him. His gameplay is so fun! I can already clear abyss with many other teams, so whatever. Right now Scara and Layla are my favorite duo☺️
Zhongli mains during his first release : Meta is temporary. Style is eternal.
Scara mains in his first release : Meta is temporary. Fandango is eternal.
I really hope that all went well with your surgery and you are okay! :) Great video; I always encourage content creators to talk about other aspects of characters aside from pure dmg. Thx for making consistently good content, and keep it up! Take care!
At first I pulled Wanderer cuz he look so cute and fun to play but after getting him, he literally helped me in almost half of my problems like getting anemoculus, climbing houses, treasure hunting, annoying mobs etc.
You, me and the community as a whole is developing. Many of us have been following you for a while and what we're looking for in a new character is changing. I think Hoyo learned this the hard way imediately after this with Dehya. It's important to recognize the factors that make a popular character successful besides their meta standing, but the whole Dehya situation proves a characters pre-release popularity can only take them so far.
For the old players, abyss really isn't that hard anymore, getting him is just another way to have fun and bring the game to life again. Yes I wouldn't recommend him to f2p people cuz his power comes from his weapon, cons, c6 furuzan and etc but if you are just searching for a fun character then he is the right guy. A lot of people bring out him not being resistant to hits, but that's just like any other character tbh? Yoimiya, Hu Tao, Ganyu and many more dps characters need a shield to perform well so I don't see where all the drama is coming from. He is just a selfish dps, we have seen that with other characters, it's nothing too different that we aren't used to
A lot of youtubers underestimate importance of exploration qualities of a character. I spend around four hours a day playing the game in essentially exploration mode (running around, mining, picking artifacts, killing mobs for mora etc) while I spend approximately four hours every two weeks playing Abyss. Good DPS will improve 4 hours of my gameplay every two weeks. Good exploration support will improve pretty much all of my gaming experience.
I actually got his Weapon before him cos I was Aiming for Redhorn, 1st Single I got his Sig sooo I decided to use my guaranteed on him and it was pretty worth cos he's REALLY fun to explore with and does good overworld dmg which is all I'm mostly looking for. (and btw I'm pretty much f2p Minus 2 BP purchases in the past.)
Man, I hope you recover well from the surgery!
Love your videos and this one in particular was pretty good talking about this new approach on your future videos!
Keep it up!!
I had this crazy revelation where is more fun to have units which you can use for exploration than only meta units that you are only going to use once a month in the abyss. I already have Raiden, hu tao, ayaka and more but Wanderer? He is meta where I spent most of the time playing, he along Yelan made me want to explore more
Wanderer I feel is more appreciated than other units for many reasons:
1. He isn't really dependant on another unit in order to function.
While Faruzan exists, she will most likely come with his every banner, making her easy enough to get while not being a great unit, having basically only one more use with Heizou. The other units on his team can really vary on what you want for the fight. Bennett, Layla, XQ, Fischl, anyone who isn't energy hungry is good with him, even Geo units can still help. Unlike other popular units who may feel too dependant on XQ, Zhongli, Bennett or Nahida, he can use them however he likes.
2. He has actual inventive gameplay. While his gameplan is the usual "Go into E and start smashing face, your burst isn't a big issue", kind of unit, like Childe, Hu Tao, Ayato or Yoimiya, he has the best movement in the game that is not just a gimmick and has value outside of battle. Kazuha and Venti before him were mostly the ones where flying went crazy with, but Wanderer powercreeped them in that regard.
3. Catalyst MDPS are rare and he is easier to build efficiently due to the weapon choices he has.
As Scaara main for 4 months or so he is fun to play and yes his flying skill helps a lot
Another thing to note of the dual banners is that site's records do not distinguish between the two; both are lumped together for that sum. It's likely most of it will be from Wanderer's side, but the other part is Itto.
Wanderer's gimmick is cool for now, but will cool off after some time. There just isn't much to do while he's up there. I've always thought that catalyst users should be able to use their magic to fade, slide, hover slightly and freely move around during their attacks a bit sort of like Wisdom Form and Kingdom Hearts 2. It's great to see Wanderer do that... but ffs only him? Also, this is a completely missed opportunity for Heizou to do that too as one of his attack's ending animations is him stabilizing himself to put his feet back on the ground. And then his and Nahida's charge attacks... They instantly become active and the 2 can jump or dodge immediately with the charge attack still going off. The rest of the catalyst users need to be updated to this.
Man, I recently had a surgery too! Sucks doesn't it? I wish you comfort and a swift recovery if things are still uncomfortable, and thanks for another entertaining video :D
it sure does! hope you have a swift recovery :D !
scara arc was so good, he's just so lovable even tho he's supposed to be a villain
I was starting to feel a little bit burned out on Genshin before Wanderer got released. Now, though, because he's just so fun to play as, fighting is exciting again!
I was never a Scara simp but his fun playstyle really convinced me to pull for him. I usually pull on a charas banner when they're fun to use (like Venti) and not because they can carry my team whatsoever. I planned to pull for Raiden ever since I started playing GI but I just couldn't resist the urge to pull on his banner when I got to play him on the trial run 😭 no regrets tho, because when I got him, I got more excited to play the game especially bcos I just love exploring and he's perfect for that!
fun fact: Itto is actually on his 3rd rerun since his debut banner in 2.3, since he had a rerun in 2.6 1st half because he was in the main event, then another rerun in 2.7's 2nd half because he was in the new archon quest, perilous trail, & he's also getting a rerun now in 3.3 as I'm posting this do to being in a new event for the 2nd time. So, with all that said, he is the new rerun archon & also had the shortest time between reruns, being only 2 banners apart, not yoimiya.
I agree with evertthing. I just got the Wanderer because I liked his gameplay and that's it. I even went with him to the new abyss having him at level 70, talents 4/4/4, and just because I had really good artifacts and a team of Xingqui, Fischl and Bennet I was able to do full starts on the abyss without a problem. I don't regret pulling for him, I enjoy it. Hope everyone that is pulling for him gets him, good luck!
Tbh I'm happy with his damage and I really love his gameplay, he's so fun!! I now look forward to playing Genshin whenever I can, which is a feeling I lost for a while. I'm happy my favourite character is finally in my team.
@Petrichor lol. It's all about having fun in game. Just enjoy
@Noobie apparently to Genshin players, not dealing one trillion damage each hit makes you immediately weak.
Yeah. His dmg is identical to my Ganyu with the same artifacts. Don't know why are people saying he's weak? 😐
Same dude, it's like those feelings you get when first starting genshin or new region unlock, there's much to explore and a lot of possibilities to try. This patch with wanderer and tcg just severely boost my playtime and it might devolved unhealthily unless I restrained myself. So yeah been a long time since I actually have to restrain myself from playing instead of forcing myself to play
About the whole Faruzan thing you mentioned
I actually got really lucky with my Scara + weapon pulls (got both of them within a total of 70 pulls, thank you mihoyo for early christmas i guess) and I didnt intent on pulling for Faruzan as she's just another 4 star and we all know how hit or miss those are nowadays. However like the community realized, she is actually a pretty good support for both my Xiao and Scara so I used my remaining pulls + some more to get as many constellations for her as possible, because her energy issues are infurating and her C6 promising.
Tldr; I did not intent to whale for Faruzan but here we are.
His game play is fun and his ability to fly is good for exploration.
I honestly didn't have High Hopes for him but ngl he is amazing, I use him and gotta say he is so fun to play with
I wasn't surprised when I found out he was fun to play. That's how most of the Anemo units are.
That being said, the demo made me want to pull him just because he was that fun.
I won the 50/50 for him and then 30 wishes later when pulling for Farzuan I got his C1. He's so fun and his utility is awesome
btw it's not top 5 banner sales of all time but top 5 for day 8 meaning comparing all banners on their 8th day. i believe right now he's 12th place for total banner sales but regardless he's selling well and there's still a lot of time left too
What I love about Scaramouche is the charge spam you can do
i totally agree with you about the fun of playing a hyper carry character, and that is why i was destroyed when i learned that Shenhe was delayed and her kit replaced by Eula
i love playing Eula but i wished it was Shenhe, and even when playing Shenhe, she's only used with cryo characters 😔
THIS fr !! also, from what i've noticed from myself is that i often prefer the hypercarry type of main dps, where you basically just build the other party members around the main dps, bc i like to play with them longer and actually FEEL their gameplay yk.. my first main dps before i got wanderer was razor, who also has similar hypercarry gameplay and i love him as well.
Wanderer is insane at any reactions, idc about his raw dmg the best thing he helps me alot while exploring
I didn’t really have any clue who wanderer was but my sister made me pull for him and now that I have caught up on all the quests I really love him
Parabens pelos seus videos, são bem completos xD
I really want us to be able to use his elemental skill when we're in the air
As someone who prefer Normal Attack combat style over brust rotations scara is right up my ally. but I didn't pull for him because i'm a f2p saving for the reruns of either eula or zhongli. After that I guess i could try to get scara in a year or so on his first rerun
well, at first i wasnt a scaramuche fan but after they changed him to wanderer and most importantly his elemental skill, I pulled for him and is suprisingly fun to me now i just want my itto boy
I want them to make the Wanderer able to use his skill in air like Kazuha and Xiao. While we are at it, we also need his talents multiplers increased, make his cooldown zero while in his skill, and an anemo shield when he uses his arrows while in his skill. This would make him up there with the best meta units. Let's face it, all archons should be OP no doubt about it and Fatuii characters should be the next best thing.
Well, he definitely is not meta...
But dang, he is so fun to play! I'm so glad for saving my pity for him! I'm running around using him and he's so fast!
I got him guaranteed at 25 pity(I loss the 50/50 but Barbatos bless me) and then when I'm aiming for Fav bow I got his bell with mixed emotions(I have r4 lvl90 Widsith)
My uncle won the last 50/50 with Nihida, and he did not want Wanderer this time. He was trying to pull for Fuzuran and he got another 50/50 and he has now Wanderer as well. He was trying to reserve his primos for Ayato (who is coming in the next banner) but now he has 50/50 chance to get him. He is upset, but thinks Wanderer is fun to play.
I cleared both halves of this Abyss cycle using Scara so I'm satisfied. I would have loved some resistance to interruption but it isn't the end of the world. I can just run a shielder as a flex.
Honestly I don't mind your max output damage videos, that's the reason why I choose your channel, the math work bahind gives us a real look into the new characters performance
I pulled on his banner for Faruzan, and stopped as soon as I got her at c0, there's a new "must have" DPS every other update, but a god tier support is so rare, she's going on the same team as Bennet and Noelle
Personally, before Wanderer I was suffering for range DPS, and then putting Thundering Manifestation in floor 12 REALLY sucked ass, so it isn't like he didn't improve my clear time thanks to not having to constantly dash around. But I got him because I had a journey with the character. I h a t e d that damn gremlin from the start, then it got personal in Inazuma (much as the Teppei storyline was botched), then Hoyo has the audacity to make me start to care about the little shit via the Opulent Husk set and Sumeru Archon Quest. Hell, the cinematic following the fight with Scaramech actively made me feel bad for the guy, and his character teaser twisted the knife. How could I not give Hoyo props for such a great personal arc with one character?
I'm finally moving to the waifu gaming side of the fence. Gremlin gaming? Blep gaming >:3
I really agree that Faruzan really did carry the banner, I mean you can easily get c0 5* compared to c6 4* ;-;
Specially if you like xiao and heizou, c6 Faruzan is a good grab.
Wanderer really gives yoimiya-esque vibes for me.
Fun First, 36-Stars later(or never) 👌🏼👌🏼
As a one year player with luck so abysmal, I can say this, for new player build 2 meta teams, one of them is National comp. Pull 2 or 3 meta 5 stars like Raiden and Zhongli because Archon banners usually featured twice per version. After that, pull for whoever you want for fun, but still concentrate your resource for the meta team first
Wanderer has the same problem most catalyst dps (Usually ones you field for a long time) users have, they are usually pretty vulnerable to interruption so you have to shield them. Yanfei without C4 needs an overload comp to keep enemies far from her, Klee needs animation cancelling and is a hassle to use as she needs to be closer than Yanfei, Heizou plays really close to enemies, Nigguang is Geo so she has very few teams to be put in the first place or people who can boost her damage. Its not to say these characters are bad, in fact I would argue they are all underated, but Abyss is so built around speed that Genshin kind of needs new events that improve PVE by more than just hitting enemies in a small chamber and killing them as fast as possible. They put sets in game that allow units to tank or heal better yet they are almost never used in favour of just hitting enemies harder, this makes some units who aren't specialized in damage be seen as bad when in reality they are amazing for what they can do.
The strong point of wanderer is simply the new mechanism of being able to fly, because it really becomes satisfactory in exploration. You feel fast with a fairly short cd. the speed of its strokes or the versatility of playing it basic or loaded attacks. Do not depend on charging energy with an ultimate ability to kill a group of hilichul in the open world (Cyno...). I think people this time ignored the meta and preferred the fun
Wanderer is also part of the Harbingers like Tartaglia. Most would be wanting to collect at least all of the Archons... but on the flip side also collecting all the Harbingers would be cool too. These 2 "factions" are the most tied to the main story anyway. I don't play the game much anymore besides just collecting primogems from events and welkin moon (I've stopped buying battle pass, no desire to explore Sumeru, haven't even finished exploring Inazuma!), but am actually considering getting Wanderer at C0 at least.
Dehya come home faster gdi.
Agreed. I became a fan of him since I saw ScaraMona artwork. Which was half a year ago. I saved up enough to tripple crown him and to have him guaranteed. First time me pulling for a signature weapon on the first day of a characters release too. 😂😂😂 I was so happy, once I for him. I just started at him in awe the first couple of days. 😮 Wanderer really has a unique playstyle, where as newer characters just get slapped on an old gameplay mechanics that existed since day one of Genshin, which is really disappointing, but NOT Wanderer. He‘s the most unique character in game rn. Anemo characters are always so much fun to play. 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
Thank you for always giving us your best, i hope you get well and better.
i didn't think i would get him tbh, i got 5 consecutive wins for 50/50 beforehand and really did not expect i'd win. i don't particularly like him (at first, even after the story quest), but i grew to love him because he's so fun to play. he's currently my dps and he has carried lols
I did around 100+ wishes on the Wanderer banner, lost a 50/50, got him, got him C1 (that wasn't planned), got C6 Yanfei and Gorou (they were both C2) but got only ONE Faruzan TT. I wanted just to get her C1 or C2 but even that won't be possible TT
(PS: get well soon!!)
