One brave soul took to the official Genshin Impact Reddit page to showcase this quirk. In a video clip, Xianyun gracefully hops around the environment, darts up a path, and then, like a moth to a flame, beelines towards a Hilichurl hiding behind an explosive barrel. You can probably guess what happens next. In a blink of an eye, Xianyun collides with the barrel, resulting in an instant and unexpected demise. Talk about a blast from the past!
Now, you might think this was just a one-off incident, but no! Other Travelers have come forward, sharing their own tales of Xianyun's auto-targeting shenanigans. One player revealed, "When I was playing around in the trial domain, her skill auto-targeted her off the edge of the domain." It seems Xianyun has a knack for aiming at the most inconvenient targets.
Of course, the Genshin Impact community couldn't help but find some humor in this explosive situation. One commenter hilariously remarked, "Lmao hell nah I'd be pissed off too, the fact that it completely ignored the enemies and went straight to the barrel." It's like Xianyun developed a sudden love for explosive objects, ignoring foes in favor of a thrilling barrel ride.
Another Traveler chimed in, "I'd be wheezing my ass off. Just straight up bird brain angry bird time. Xianyun suddenly had the instinctual urge to fly into a barrel at high speeds." Who needs enemies when you have explosive barrels as your arch-nemeses?
But the comedic comparisons didn't stop there. One imaginative player likened Xianyun's mishap to an iconic Pokémon attack. "Cloud Retainer used Brave Bird! It's super effective! The wild Hilichurl fainted! Cloud Retainer was damaged by the recoil!" Ah, the joys of unexpected recoil, just like in the good ol' Pokémon days.
However, amidst the laughter, many Genshin Impact players expressed their frustration with Xianyun's auto-targeting. One player lamented, "Don't expect Hoyo to fix this either, they didn't resolve any of Dehya's issues." It seems that disabling auto-targeting is the dream of many, especially for PC players who crave more control over their characters. Alas, the struggles continue.
Will the mighty HoYoverse address Xianyun's targeting troubles in a future update? Only time will tell. Until then, dear Travelers, exercise caution when unleashing Xianyun's Elemental Skill. Keep an eye out for explosive barrels and ensure your aerial excursions don't end in a fiery finale.
In the fantastical realm of Genshin Impact, surprises await us at every turn. Whether it's a breathtaking view from a mountaintop or an unintended barrel-induced explosion, our adventures are never dull. So grab your glider, hone your combat skills, and brace yourself for more exhilarating and, occasionally, explosive encounters. Just remember, Xianyun might have a thing for barrels, but with a little caution and a lot of laughter, you'll overcome any obstacle that comes your way. Happy travels, fellow adventurers!
