New 4-Star Character: Rosaria
The new 4-star character coming with the Version 1.4 update is “Thorny Benevolence” Rosaria. She has a Cryo Vision and uses a polearm as her weapon.
Rosaria will also come equipped with an Elemental Skill called “Ravaging Confession.” This skill allows her to rapidly maneuver behind most enemies and unleash an attack that deals Cryo damage.
Her Elemental Burst, called “Rites of Termination,” allows Rosaria to cast an Ice Lance into the ground that deals periodic bursts of AoE Cryo damage.
A handful of new weapons will be coming to the 1.4 update, including an event-exclusive bow, called Windblume Ode. These weapons are as follows:
- Elegy for the End: 5-star bow
- The Alley Flash: 4-star sword
- Wine and Song: 4-star catalyst
- Alley Hunter: 4-star bow
- Windblume Ode: 4-star bow
Invitation of Windblume Event
The Invitation of Windblume Event takes place from March 19 through April 5, though the Event Shop will be open until April 12.
Invitation of Windblume Currencies
Players who participate in the Windblume Festival can obtain two currencies: Festive Tour Tickets and Peculiar Collab Coupons. These currencies can be used to buy the event-exclusive bow, Windblume Ode, its refinement material, “The Visible Winds,” the Crown of Insight, and more.
A series of Windblume Festival quests will unlock as the event progresses. Each act of Festive Anecdotes will bring new quests, offering rewards such as Primogems, Mora, and character EXP materials.
- Act I: March 19 through April 5
- Act II: March 22 through April 5
- Act III: March 25 through April 5
- Act IV: March 28 through April 5
New Game Feature: Hangout Events
Players who are Adventure Rank 26 or above and complete the prerequisite quests will be able to participate in Hangout Events. Hangout Events can be unlocked for Barbara, Noelle, Chongyun, and Bennett.
Each Hangout Event requires 2 Story Keys to unlock. To get Story Keys, you will need to complete Daily Commissions. Every 8 Daily Commissions completed awards 1 Story Key.
A new Archon Quest, “Chapter I: Act IV – We Will Be Reunited” will become available at a later date. There will also be a total of 8 new World Quests added throughout the course of the Windblume Festival.
Each of these new quests will grant character EXP materials, Mora, and other rewards upon their completion.
Additional New Features
The Version 1.4 update will also bring some other new features to the game. These include a new Elite Monster, Gadgets, recipes, namecards, achievements, and more. Additionally, the update of the Parametric Transformer will allow you to include numerous ores as materials.
As for system features, there will be a major update that involves changing your World Level. After reaching World Level 5, players will be able to lower their World Level by 1. This will make in-game enemies easier to defeat, though the rewards for defeating these enemies will be reduced proportionately.
Players who reduce their World Level and then decide they want to restore it to its natural state can do so after 24 hours. Likewise, players who want to reduce their World Level again will have to wait another 24 hours to do so.
As always, Genshin Impact‘s new update brings a slew of new content to the game. Be sure to update your game and log in on the 17th to begin enjoying all these new features!
