Genshin Impact has officially revealed the lone featured five-star character coming to the game’s roster with the Version 4.5 update.
Genshin Impact Leaks Chiori’s Signature Weapon
A new image shared by prominent leaker GenshinMeow gives fans their first look at Chiori’s signature sword within Genshin Impact. The sword bears a similar brown-and-gold color scheme to Chiori, with a red floral design tassle attached to the sword’s guard. The design of the sword also sticks closely to Chiori’s element in Genshin Impact, with the Inazuma character launching as the newest Geo unit. Both Chiori and her signature weapon will debut with the launch of Version 4.5, currently expected for March 13.
While the image leak does not share any information about how Chiori’s signature weapon will function within Genshin Impact, past leaks have hinted at its unique abilities. A leak of Chiori’s full kit and abilities teased Chiori’s weapon using Crit Damage as its sub-stat, with Chiori reportedly gaining Crit Rate for her Ascension stat. The post suggests Chiori’s weapon will boast an astounding 88% Crit Rate when fully leveled, similar to other five-star Crit Swords like “Splendor of Tranquil Waters” and “Light of Foliar Incision.”
Though fans will have to wait for Version 4.5 to try out Chiori, HoYoverse would recently reveal the full lineup of characters set to be featured in Version 4.4. Along with the previously mentioned Xianyun and Gaming, Version 4.4 will feature three five-star characters receiving re-runs with Nahida, Xiao, and Yae Miko set to appear. The update will also heavily feature Liyue four-star characters to celebrate the annual Lantern Rite with Xinyan, Ningguang, and Yaoyao all featured on the second half banners. Between Xianyun, Chiori, and the plethora of re-runs, Genshin Impact fans have plenty to look forward to in Versions 4.4 and 4.5.
