  • The Sabzeruz Festival was originally the Goddess of Flowers' birthday celebration for the Greater Lord.
    It is said that during the birthday celebration of the Dendro Archon, the Goddess of Flowers performed a dance, and countless beautiful Padisarahs began to bloom wherever she stepped.
    And now, Nilou will recreate this mesmerizing scene in the legend with her ethereal dance.

      Maybe I'm just a cynical person, but learning that Dunyarzard was still alive was almost a.. let down? Her "death" was so impactful to me, and seeing her spirit watch the dance after thinking she wouldn't live long enough to see it was so moving. When I saw that she was alive after all that, I felt like "Oh.. What was all that for, then?"

      @A Al Zien I don't think it was sad per se. For me, what made it emotional was the fact that the entire story was true, but since she didn't mention Shenhe's name in the story, Shenhe doesn't take credit. Nobody acknowledges her and the fear and pain she faced when she was just a little girl; only Yun Jin herself and the traveler.

      @Sp268 ummmm ok? No offense but, you're not really making any sense. Are you a kid? Because you do sound like one. Well let me explain, little one. Genshin has bad writing. Like it or not it does. If you believe it has good writing then you haven't seen good writing in video games: The Last of Us, Bioshock, Mass Effect, etc. And no, genshin isn't successful because of its writing. It's because of its game play, visual style, gacha mechanics, publicity strategies, world building, music. Writing is in fact at the bottom of that list. And no, people didn't desperately want good writing in games, because we already DO HAVE good writing in games. So I'm sorry, but your comment lacks any sense.

    • Sp268
      Sp268 28 일 전 +2

      @Emmanuel That you are a self proclaimed "screen writer" shows that you naturally favor shallow stories, while Genshin is written more like a fantasy book. There is a reason why your recipes for "screen writing" can't hope to emulate Genshin's success, Mihoyo ate everyone's lunch because they have spectacular writing and people desperately wanted high quality writing in games, not just the same lazy movie plots which lack scale and depth.
      In your so called "screen writing" you can't even do world building due to financial and medium constraints. Seems like you are just jealous of Genshin's writers.

      @Grumpjaw Tv it could be. both Indian and persian dances and instruments are similar, but since most of the characters in this archon quest own Persian names, like nilou, or dunyarzad, and the festival itself has Persian origins, so It’s more likely that nilou’s moves are middle eastern style.

    My mom's nearing the final stages of her cancer and I just wasn't ready for this eleazar stuff from Genshin. After Dunyazad said her eleazar was "terminal" I had trouble following the quest's breadcrumbs from the tears. Was a very intriguing and beautiful quest. The way they made it seem like Dunyazad had passed away with regrets was heart-wrenching. I would've been satisfied if she had gone after seeing the dance honestly. It's the thought of her dying with regrets that was so sad.

    Man this questline was good. I really though Dunyarzad was dead. I was even thinking about how sad it was that her only wish was to see Nilou's dance and that it never came to pass. I was so glad to see the last fragment of her consciousness watching the dance. It's good she survived. Even if she won't live another year due to that illness.

      @Tima Glam it's overused though, they already did that with teppei. I would've hated it if they overdid the whole "npc that was with you through the archon quest died" again. the situation in sumeru wasn't as serious (at face value) with inazumas too. plus, the whole dream set up and how disturbing so many of the cutscenes, I feel like those displayed a perfect amount of direness and severity, no? at least to me, I felt literal chills down my spine when the whole dream segment started. the death would've broken that balance between "just enough" and "too much" for me, of course, that's just my opinion

    As an oneironaut, I am REALLY impressed by the thought you put in how dreams work. I absolutely loved the explanation of how schemas affect dreams by the "plate containing food" metaphor: not even Inception or Lucid Dreams in Netflix had such a good understanding of them! This, along accurate descriptions of sleep paralysis, lucidity, dream guides, time dilation, recurrent dream signs and persistent realms without even having to mention them just made the quest the most enjoyable one for me until now 🙏 I really hope you keep up with it!

    Would absolutely love to see more of the Traveler's voicing and emotion in future contents! I wasn't really a big fan of the self-insert silent protagonist.
    Seeing the Traveler's display of emotion and hearing their voice in this quest is absolutely incredible, hope to see more!

      Same! I was so relieved 😣 I was in disbelief at first cause I thought it was like a trick, either way it hits if you grow to care for them 😢 😞 and even then she still has Eleazar… tbh I rather for her to go out on her terms w/ her ailment and not from whatever the heck the Akademiya/Sage(s)? is doing

      Honestly, I don't want her death ofc, but feels like it would be better if she passed away in this quest. It's not another Teppei where we just forgot his existence after his death, I forgot if we even mentioned him and another soldiers to Raiden . I cried at this cutscene where she is alive, bro If she died... it would be even more emotional

      Honestly I thought it'd be more impactful if it remain tragic. I mean i teared up at the dance and then find out she's alive, I kinda went meh. That scene was so bittersweet esp with traveller's expressions that having her alive kind of takes it away but well that's my opinion. Either way the dance scene was fabulous.

    Gonna admit, the music did throw me off a tiny bit at first since it sounded a little elevator-esque, but then you remember the original story of how the gods had gotten drunk as heck and the god of flowers decided to take to the dance floor and honestly the whole scene just makes perfect sense, from her movements to her expressions along with the music. 10/10 again, Hoyo animators, you magical talented nerds.

      For me personally, I don't get why people really liked Kazari. She barely showed up in her own quest, and she mostly only appear to tell us we did a job well done. And or to do a lore drop in the end, which at that point I was already not bother to hear since I had to go through (imo) five crappy puzzle that I had to look the tutorial for.
      At least with Teppei, we were by his side for the short amount of time we had. I know his hopes and dreams, and I wished he could achieve it. But to see he never get that because the Fatui influence hurts so much for me.

    There was this part where traveler sent themselves a message when they get out of the city because their future self would forget everything, and they VOICED this part SOOO WELL. I did not hear the aether version yet, only the lumine one, and it kinda striked me how good the voice acting is. Her voice is so expressive and we could feel it so much, like the Panic in her voice was so noticable. Makes me think about how much we could have if mihoyo let the traveler have a voice. Lumine's voice actor is incredibly talented.

      they just keep getting better and better with the story.
      every new region has a unique story that never felt like a rehash of the old.
      and the adherence to real life lore of the regions are also a great touch.
      like using the sakoku decree in inazuma referencing the real sakoku decree in japanese history.
      and using the samsara cycles for the dream in sumeru archon quest is just masterclass writing.

    Fun Fact: The name Dunyarzad is a character based on the series of middle eastern tales called 'One Thousand and One Nights'. Dunyarzad is the younger sister of Scheherazade , the main character in the series (really fascinating story, google it if you have a chance). Anyway, the opening music 0:00 - 0:37 is based on the symphonic suite
    Scheherazade by RImsky Korsakov. Definitely one of my favourite orchestral pieces. If you like the opening of this, check it out!
