Genshin Impact: Echoes of an Offering is Bugged | Why High Ping Players Should Avoid it?

The Echoes of an Offering Artifact set is a powerful set for characters that mainly use Normal Attacks. However, it’s currently bugged as of this moment, something that high ping players want to avoid.

The main reason why lots of players use the Echoes of an Offering artifact set is mainly due to its 4-piece set bonus. While the 2-piece set bonus in itself is already strong as it provides an 18% increase in ATK power, the 4-piece set bonus provides an even higher attack damage increase for characters that use Normal attacks.

The problem is that it’s currently bugged. Let’s find out why.

Why High Ping Players Should Avoid the Bugged Echoes of an Offering Set in Genshin Impact

Normally, the set’s 4-piece bonus grants a 36% chance to trigger Valley Rite when hitting opponents using normal attacks. This effect increases the damage of normal attacks by 70% of your ATK stat. This makes it really strong for characters that mainly use normal attacks like Razor, Ayato, Yoimiya, and Tartaglia.

Once the effect activates, it will then dispel 0.05 seconds after dealing damage with a normal attack. In the event that a normal attack doesn’t trigger Valley Rite, your next attack will have a 20% more chance of triggering it, and this can occur once every 0.2 seconds.

Now, if you’re playing on low ping, you shouldn’t have to worry about this bug at all. HOWEVER, the problem lies when you’re playing on high ping. This is why if you’re a high ping player, you’d simply want to avoid it as the effect procs way less than it should be due to server delays.

What it means is that it will take some time for the server to process your action and relay information to you since you’re playing on high ping.

So what happens is that instead of the effect proccing roughly around 50% of the time on average, you’ll get 20% less chance of proccing it. This means that you won’t be able to get the damage bonus it’s supposed to give you and instead applies it on your next hit.

As such, this can mean a massive damage dropoff, and at this point, you’re much better off using better sets like the Heart of Depth as it provides a more reliable damage bonus increase.

Hogwarts Legacy is just around the corner, and if you’re one of those people who always expected an owl to crash into your bedroom to give you a letter of invitation to the school of Witchcraft and Wizardry then congratulations, you’re still a child at heart. One of the many things that muggle-borns are keeping a close eye on is the character creation as this always has been a huge selling point for gamers who wish to see themselves in the game their playing. No argument needed there as it simply adds to the immersion. We’ll see just how good the character creation is by giving it a good wangle!

How Good Is The Character Creation In Hogwarts Legacy?

As the game is still said to be a “work in progress” not everything is set in stone just yet. There’s plenty of options to go through however so let’s see if you can either look like a Korean pop idol of some sort or a child that looks like a melting candle.

So the first thing you will notice once you go to the character creation screen is the plethora of Presets offered to you. This is a good start for players who just want to dive right in and explore the second-floor girls’ lavatory.

Once you have chosen your base look you will be taken to the Facewear section where you can choose your facial structure from a set of fifteen portraits. Some players may prefer having sliders when it comes to specific parts of their custom character’s face as they really have every intention to see a carbon copy of themselves in-game.

When you’re satisfied with the shape that you chose you can also go and specify a skin color and some glasses for your character. Hogwarts is known to have a rather diverse community of students so go be yourself and choose which suits you the best!

Moving on to Hairstyles you have two customization choices, your hair color, and the actual style of well, your hair! There can only be so many options for hair in any game as it’s quite difficult to build this from scratch compared to sculpting the bridge of your nose or adjusting the height of your temple.

Hair can be quite a delicate part of customization, especially when not all options are available to you. Nevertheless, you still have enough choices here to either look like Anton Chigur or The Daywalker. Props to you if you got any of that!

Next is the Complexion tab, you have the option to give yourself a slight blush if or some freckles and moles if you have any. We weren’t kidding earlier either when we said that you can look like you aged prematurely. That’s what the scars and markings are for! At the end of the day it’s all about getting your features down to a T!

On the following tab we have Eyebrows. Most options that we went through gave us the impression that everyone back in the 19th century had time to shave, and that’s a good thing! You can tell a lot from a person’s eyebrows after all. Just don’t get caught looking!

After choosing the shape that fits your fancy you can go and apply any color to it, most likely you will choose the same color you chose for your hair but hey, it’s your choice that matters here so go crazy! The same goes for your eyes as well.

For the final touch, you have four more options. You have two choices for your character’s voice which should’ve had more in our opinion. You can also change the pitch of that voice to resemble yours. Lastly you have your difficulty selection which is pretty straightforward, you also have your character name and which dormitory you want to be sent to.

The character creation in our opinion is good enough where it stands. It’s not great but it’s definitely not bad either. Having the option to choose a preset or create your own character completely from scratch (sliders and all) is a recent concept that players have been searching for a lot lately and it’s much appreciated that Avalanche Software gave that to us.

While others are happy with the choices they’ve been given, we can still see some possible complaints that will go after the Facewear section as limiting your features to only fifteen options is a very daring move given that there’s a chance that a player out there might not get the look they’re after.

It all just goes back to the sliders since this gives the player a more precise selection when it comes to making adjustments to their looks, plus there weren’t too many options for body-type either. It’s not a long list of shortcomings but you will have to take these into consideration if you’re the kind of gamer who spends more than an hour in the customization screen. We’re still looking forward to the game however so don’t let any of that bring you down. Thank you, and see you in the world of magic!
