  • Its more rapid than you think....Mora gets used up ENTIRELY, it may look like its just a few hundreds to make a potion, but those stack up....then its thousands, tens of thousands, millions of Mora used up and vanished entirely....

  • I want to believe that Zhongli knew this would happen and made a plan about how "If all the Mora in the world is gone then entire countries will either fight for the remaining or team up to get production going again and seeing as to how Snezhnaya wants my Gnosis then the outcome will either be the entire Teyvat against Snezhnaya or the entirety of Teyvat will go to war with each other"

  • Sorry but I have to disagree to that theory my good mattypat. You see monsters do drop mora when they die, and monsters respawn so still unlimited mora.

  • Money printed by governments also needs backing. A dollar bill represents a percentage of gold or silver or some kind of valuable object to give it worth. You can't just print a whole bunch of bills and say the they're valuable. Otherwise counterfeiting wouldn't matter.

  • everyone seems to have forgotten that the gnosis used to create mora has just been transferred to another archon.. if that archon is aiming for world domination then its for sure he/she is the one who will continue creating mora for his own purpose.. so yeah, there will be a change on how its going to circulate but im sure it will still be there.

  • The golden house mint is probably not going to be out of commission for a very long time since a new geo archon will be appointed by celestia. When a archon dies or steps down for whatever reason a new archon is always selected. For instance, the cryo archon the tsaritsa ascended to her position 500 years ago before the fall of Khaenri'ah. So while the teyvat might not have a new supply of mora for a while its probably not going to be permanent.

  • An Archon and a God are two different terms in Genshin impact

    • Another example is Guizhong who's the god of dust but again, isnt an archon

      SezuSezu7 цагийн өмнө
    • For Example, Havria is the God if Salt but she isnt an Archon. She wasnt a strong God either and eventually perished and cursed the people who followed her

      SezuSezu7 цагийн өмнө
    • A God however is an immortal(?) being but isnt always given strong powers, They used to roam the lands of Teyvat but many of the gods have been defeated in the Archin War

      SezuSezu7 цагийн өмнө
    • An Archon is a ruler with a specific element assigned to them. In Teyvat there are 7 Archons and only 2 remain of the original 7 that won in the Archon War.

  • And Zhongli's name is pronounced Joh-ng-li or more like Ts-yong-li... Surprisingly, the entire Genshin impact community is very conscious about miss pronouncing names, not necessarily to avoid some controversy, but more like to be true to the characters they love.

  • I mean yes but no, we know for the story of Venti, that archons are reelected as soon as the previous archon dies or, I assume, retires, which means that as soon as Zhongli formally renounce to his gnosis in front of the heavenly realm of Celestia a new Geo Archon will be elected, but he hasn't done that and for what we can assume of the story of the game that halts in the production of mora isn't gonna be for long, and for what we can see in the fight that happens in the golden house's vault there is plenty of mora for you to actually construct a mansion in there, so the economic and technological advance of teyvat isn't gonna be halted for too long before either Zhongli dies, retires formally or regains his gnosis

  • well if my own game since it's cartoony itself and not to be....egotistical about it but trying to make it, it's own series, well guess doom guy won't be infuriating that anytime soon lol. So the only thing Doom Guy can't do is go to other indie developers creations/worlds to infiltrate other than that he got every other franchise lol And yes I am in the process of making a game out of my own because apparently games are where the attraction is over comics and even animations at times......such a shame, the demographic got even harder to keep up with. Not easy being a single creator in a world full of teams out there :/ and never had friends either who were artist like myself. Only my friend whose the official VA and who I pay to voice them over. but seriously, Doom guy gonna storm every franchise if they let him lol
