With the release of the Fonantine region, there are many characters set to be revealed. However, players have met them before. Lyney, Lynette, and Freminet were first introduced in Version 4.0 of the game; Neuvillette and Wriothesley are slated to join the playable cast in Version 4.1. Now, a sneak peek at the first banner for the imminent Version 4.2 upgrade has surfaced thanks to leaks.
Players are anticipating the character lineup for Version 4.2 despite the Genshin Impact team not yet making it official. Numerous leaks have already revealed details about the gameplay of the Hydro Archon Furina, which is expected to be added in the forthcoming release. Trusted leakers have also suggested that Charlotte, Fontaine’s first officially disclosed character, will appear in the update. Furthermore, reports indicate that Furina’s debut will coincide with a revival of a well-known healer character.
The characters in Version 4.2’s first half have recently been leaked by prominent Genshin Impact leakers HXG and Full Stop Chan. The leak states that Baizhu, a powerful Dendro healer, would once again appear during this update together with Furina. Furthermore, the leak suggests that Charlotte will be a key character on Furina’s banner. On November 8th, Version 4.2 is expected to be released in Genshin Impact.
The Healers like Baizhu and Charlotte will be essential in teams with the Hydro Archon as early gameplay leaks for Furina in Genshin Impact indicate. Furina’s skills appear to center on depleting HP while enhancing her own assaults with the health of her teammates. Both healing and health loss will have an impact on her gameplay, giving her advantages to either her healing abilities or damage output. The manipulation of HP will be a key mechanic for multiple roster members in the Fontaine region, according to this, which is consistent with past leaks about characters from that area.
The only two of the numerous characters anticipated for Genshin Impact’s Fontaine area cycle are Furina and Charlotte. Navia is slated to make her debut in Version 4.3 after Version 4.2, becoming the first Geo character in the game in almost two years. Players are reportedly going to meet Cloud Retainer in Version 4.4. Arlecchino has also been mentioned in leaks as the next playable Fatui member, albeit this is anticipated to happen later in the Fontaine region’s cycle. Similar to past Archons, gamers of Genshin Impact are extremely excited about Furina’s introduction in Version 4.2.
