Recent leaks have revealed that the highly anticipated Genshin Impact 4.2 update will introduce two new characters, Furina and Charlotte. The leaks include their splash art, expected release dates, and potential abilities, although it is important to note that this information is based on leaks and is subject to change.
Furina, believed to be a support-type character, is expected to be released in the first phase of the 4.2 update. Her banner is speculated to drop on November 8, 2023. The leaked splash art showcases Furina wielding a sword, confirming her identity as a sword user.
Early leaks from the pre-beta phase provide some insight into Furina's potential kit. It appears that she has two alignments, Pneuma and Ousia, and can switch between them. Her Elemental Skill will have different effects depending on which alignment is active. In the Pneuma state, she summons three animals that deal damage to enemies based on the on-field unit's attacks. In the Ousia state, her skill summons something that heals the on-field unit. Her Elemental Burst drains HP from the entire party but buffs their damage. Additionally, she possesses a stack mechanic that can reach up to 500 stacks, with the effects of her buff increasing based on the number of stacks.
It should be noted that there are claims of multiple versions of Furina's kit, so the final version upon release may differ from the leaked information.
Another leak reveals that Charlotte, a Cryo unit, will also be released in the first phase of the 4.2 update. She is expected to be a 4-star Catalyst unit. Limited information is available about Charlotte's abilities, but leaks suggest that she is a Cryo healer with a party-wide healing skill. However, her healing rate is said to be low, and her skill duration is long. As such, she may be a suitable option for free-to-play players.
As with any leaks, it is important to take this information with a grain of salt until official confirmation from HoYoverse. Genshin Impact players can look forward to the 4.2 update, which is expected to bring exciting new characters and gameplay additions to the popular open-world action RPG.
