Where Genshin Impact 1.4 update disappointed with only one 4-star character (Rosaria), the version 1.5 update more than makes up for it with two new characters: Yanfei and Eula.

Yanfei possesses the capabilities of a four-star Pyro-using catalyst wielder. She can generate Scarlet Seals through her Normal Attack, Elemental Skill, and Elemental Burst. Although Scarlet Seals consume Yanfei’s stamina while unleashing a stackable buff, it becomes a useful tool that increases the power and range of her Charged Attacks.

Eula, on the other hand, is a five-star character who makes use of a claymore, inflicts Cryo damage, and contains the elemental skills Icetide Vortex. Her Elemental Burst strikes area-of-effect assault on the enemy and produces a Lightfall Sword that accompanies her around.

Like every other update, there is a free character in update 1.5 as well. Upon the completion of a new event in this version, users will get access to a 4-star character, Diona.
