Hi there, welcome.
Try to update your DNS using Garuda Assistant.

I have done that to no avail

Have you restarted your router and rebooted, just to make sure that the new DNS server is active?

i attached a pastebin in my post of the dig command i ran. i can access the site that steam hangs on, so wouldn't steam itself seems to be the problem? the arch wiki said to enable dns caching with sudo systemctl enable --now nscd, didn't help tho. My isp seems to be blocking use of other dns servers and possibly vpns because changing the dns or trying to use a vpns breaks things. but still i can access media.steampowered.com no problem just steams application has problems.

This is not a networking issue, this is a steam issue. Therefore I'm moving this thread from the networking category.

There have been other threads regarding this issue recently. Perhaps if you search the forum you might find some helpful info regarding your issue.

Good luck.
