However, recent leaks from reputable sources, including Waffel, indicate a shift in the planned banners for Version 4.3. The first half is now expected to feature Navia and Ayaka, while the second half will showcase Raiden and Yoimiya. This alteration comes as a surprise to many players who were eager to see the Geo element take the spotlight in this update.
Albedo and Itto Banner
The absence of Albedo and Itto in the Version 4.3 banners may disappoint some players, but it provides an opportunity for them to accumulate Primogems after acquiring Navia. Additionally, Version 4.3 is set to introduce a new 4-Star Pyro Spear user named Chevreuse, catering to Overload teams and likely appearing in the Raiden and Yoimiya banners.
One of the most exciting aspects of the update is the inclusion of top-tier weapons. Navia’s signature two-handed axe will be paired with Mistsplitter Reforged, considered the best Sword weapon in Genshin Impact. Meanwhile, the highly sought-after Engulfing Lightning will accompany Thundering Pulse, making Version 4.3 a standout weapon patch.
While the leaked information provides valuable insights, the order of characters in the banners and their pairing with Navia remains unconfirmed. Speculation suggests that Navia may be featured in the first round of banners, lasting until January 16, 2024. The uncertainty surrounding the banner order adds an element of anticipation for players looking to build their teams strategically.
Raiden Shogun’s potential rerun during the holiday season is also hinted at, further enhancing the excitement for Version 4.3. With her versatility, Raiden Shogun can complement the Geo characters, offering players more options for team compositions.
As the Genshin Impact community eagerly awaits the official release of Version 4.3 on December 19, players are advised to stay tuned for further announcements from HoYoverse to confirm the details of the highly anticipated banners and character lineup.
