      Definitely worth pulling just like Venti. Gacha game like Genshin, the meta bounces here to another. And the meta usually categorized as DPS creeping. So in order for people to keep pulling new character, miHoYo need to come up with slightly inflated DPS characters. But when it comes to support, it is less likely that new character will steal another character's unique support skills. Utility support like Venti and Zhongli will definitely live longer than DPS. Go pull Zhongli.
