A new drip marketing campaign for Honkai: Star Rail‘s Aventurine confirmed that he is a five-star unit specializing in the Ice element. He belongs to the Preservation path, which hints at him being either a tank or a shielder.

The drip marketing of Aventurine doesn’t give any concrete details about his kit, but some early leaks revealed that he provides allies with a shield that absorbs a certain amount of damage. The character increases his own DEF, gains energy regeneration with the ultimate, and deals extra Ice damage equal to his stats.
Besides Aventurine and Acheron, Honkai: Star Rail also revealed the drip marketing of Misha and Sparkle, confirming that they hail from the Harmony and the Destruction path, respectively. The four-star support unit Misha will utilize the Ice element, while the five-star Sparkle will deal Fire damage.
