      Zhongli is good - definitely better than when he first came out. Venti is kind of an insane character overall with his crowd control which is why people were pulling so much for him. Zhongli is different since the petrification from his burst only lasts a few seconds. Most people pull him for his shield, so if you are looking for a strong shield or Geo character then you can pull him but it's not really that necessary. It just matters whether you like playing him :)

      Looking for someone to help me grind to that 15k namecard achievement in Twisted Realm! I don't have enough dmg to get there myself, but with another person it should be doable :) My Chongyun puts out pretty high damage, and I can also provide my lvl. 82 Jean as a healer. Please lmk if you're interested!
