The Genshin Impact 1.4 Chinese livestream the other night confirmed rumors of two 5-Star characters' return to the game and introducing a new 4-Star character.
For weeks players have been wondering what characters would grace the Event Banners for the 1.4 update.
Event Banners offer increased drop rates for 4 and 5-Star weapons and characters, as well as the chance to pull a limited-time 5-Star character.
The Archon of Wind and the Harbingers No. 11
Venti and Childe, two of the first limited-availability 5-Star Genshin Impact characters, will make their return to the game on March 17th, 2021.
The first Event Banner will feature Venti and the new 4-Star Cryo Polearm user, Rosaria.
The banner will run approximately 10-15 days before a second event banner featuring Child will run.
There has been no word of the other three 4-Star characters that will appear during the duration of Genshin Impact 1.4, with each banner usually featuring three different ones.
These two characters' availability is exciting news for those who could not pull them during their initial runs due to either poor luck or having started playing the game after their release.
Rosaria Finally Becomes Playable
First introduced in The Chalk Prince and the Dragon storyline, Rosaria captivated players with her over-the-top look, cold demeanor, and ruthless attitude.
A nun of the Church of Favonius in Mondstadt, she is the polar opposite of Barbara in almost every way.
A Cryo Polearm, Crit-based DPS, Rosaria is swift, powerful, and has the ability to move around the battlefield with ease as she blasts foes with Cryo damage.
In addition to these abilities, Rosaria's Night Walk passive ability increases the movement speed of a player's Genshin Impact's party between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. in-game time.
Pleasing Players New and Old
The Genshin Impact 1.4 update aims to please both new players and those who have been around since the beginning.
By re-releasing Venti and Childe, new players have a chance to snag some pretty powerful characters.
For those who have been playing the game for a while, it is a chance to pull a character they may have missed or earn some constellations to make their existing characters more powerful.
With Venti considered one of the best characters in the game, any chance to pull or power up the amazing Utility character is certainly welcome.
