    • I'm at a high AR but basically a beginner at RPG games.
      My current team is xiangling, keqing, ganyu, and qiqi/traveler/barbara switching between if theres healing needed. I'm thinking of hu tao/klee/mona joining the team, but what party set up would be good?
      (Personally don't want to take keqing out because I love overload hehe)
      Also, are there characters that don't work together well?

      But where are those who share the memory?
