A new secret about the game Genshin Impact tells us about five characters you can play in the next special event. In this game, updates come in two parts, each with special characters you can get. These characters can be either very rare (five-star) or a bit less rare (four-star).
In Genshin Impact, five-star characters are really strong, but they’re tough to get because you need to make 90 wishes. When you do, you’re sure to get a five-star character, but there’s a 50% chance it might be a character from the Standard Banner.
A recent post on the Genshin Impact Leaks subreddit has shown us which powerful characters will show up in the second part of update 4.1.
In this update, you can expect to see Wriothesley, a new Cryo character, and Venti, the Anemo Archon, as the special five-star characters. Additionally, there will be some strong four-star characters like Thoma, who uses a Pyro polearm, Chongyun, a Cryo user with a big sword, and Dori, an Electro character. These characters will make the game even more exciting!
Wriothesley is the only new character on this banner. He’s special because he’s the first in the game to use Cryo magic with a special weapon. This got players really excited. Because of this, Wriothesley can freeze enemies or make them melt when he attacks, so he’s great for teams that use those strategies.
But, even though most people think mages use the catalyst as a weapon from a distance, some sneak peeks of Genshin Impact gameplay show that Wriothesley likes fighting up close, kind of like the Anemo DPS character Shikanoin Heizou.
There are rumors that this new five-star Cryo user might become available in the Standard Banner after version 4.1, just like how Dehya and Tighnari did. Wriothesley is expected to be a new character who deals a lot of damage on the battlefield.
The second top-rated character shown on the leaked banner is Venti. He’s super helpful in Genshin Impact, even though he came out in the game’s first update in 2020. Some players like Kazuha better than Venti for support, but Venti can still help out, especially when you’re dealing with lots of enemies. His Wind’s Grand Ode move is great for that.
