I'm contemplating whether to have Wanderer's weapon,since I only pulled a total of 4 times on the weapon banner. But I'm not planning to get any other 5 star since my plan was ruined,after getting Chiori when I was trying build pity for Kazhu,lol. Hope Zhongli comes in the next version. He is next in my plan of action

Mannnnn, I've been saving for Alhaitham and his weapon since Neuvillette's release (I took a break from the game for a year, saw Alhaitham and immediately decided to dedicate everything to him). I hope he gets a rerun next.. I'm surprised to see Baizhu since he just had a rerun in 4.2. ATP I'm gonna have enough wishes saved up for C6 lol.
