As the August update, which will introduce players to a new region – Fontaine, approaches, more and more insiders, rumors and speculations about banners and new characters pop up on the network. Previously, due to a global leak, a lot of concept art was distributed, including with characters in development, which gave rise to the fantasies of various insiders.
The information presented below is not an announcement or some top-secret inside information, but rather a speculation, so treat it accordingly. Nevertheless, some of the assumptions can be substantiated and there is a chance that it will be so, because earlier some reruns and releases of heroes were already predicted by trusted insiders.
According to speculation, the banners of the first five versions with the plot of the Hydro region will include:
Patch 4.0: 5* – Lynn (Pyro, bow), Tartaglia, Zhong Li, Ye Lan and two new 4* heroes: Lynette (Anemo, sword) and Freminet (Cryo, two-handed). Earlier, insiders reported that Geo Archon will not be in this update, Hydro Archers will appear, and Charlotte (Cryo, catalyst) may become one of the epic characters.
Patch 4.1: 5* – Risley (Cryo, spear), Navillet (Hydro, catalyst), Ayato, Shogun Raiden and new 4* Mirianel. Dataminers have already written about the appearance of the legendary men from Fontaine, but the reruns of the update have not been disclosed. Some of the newcomers can get into the standard banner.
Patch 4.2: 5* – Focalors (Hydro, sword), Albedo, Hu Tao, Bai Zhu and 4* Charlotte (Cryo, catalyst). Information about the release of the Hydro Archon is believed to be reliable. Reruns of the alchemist and office manager may take place in this patch or later, since it will be about a year from their appearance in prayers, but the return of the healer is unlikely.
Patch 4.3: 5* – Venty, Ayaka, Arlekino (Pyro, sword), Saino and 4* mummy girl Bennu. Rumors about the appearance of the Harbinger are very different, it may come out in this update or the next one. In patch 4.3, the expansion of the territory of Mondstadt should take place, which hints at the prayer of Anemo Archon, however, insiders did not report anything about the reruns of other heroes;
Patch 4.4: 5* – Liu YunShen He, Nahida, Xiao and epic Liu Ping. The two unknowns are Adepts of Li Yue, already shown in these images in one of the cutscenes – the Guardian of the Clouds and Madam Ping. They are most likely playable. will never become. The reruns of the heroes of the Geo region may pass, since the version will take place at the next Sea Lantern Festival, and Nahida could appear in the speculation simply by the time since the last rerun.
Patch 4.5: 5* – Wind up (Geo or Hydro), Arataki Itto, Albedo, Gan Yu, Nilu, Focalors (Hydro, sword). The appearance of triple banners was reported by insiders, however, it is extremely difficult to predict the prayers of spring heroes now. We can definitely say that Hydro Archon will return only in 4.6 – in the fourth patch after its release, like all the patrons of the regions. Girls and them (a kind of yokai in Inazuma) may appear a year later, the rerun of the “former” alchemist in 4.2 is doubtful, and nothing is known about the appearance of Navia.
Despite all the rationale for the assumptions, the developers can always unexpectedly return the character to the prayers “before the time”. Read all the information from insiders in the banner schedule so as not to fall for speculation and safely save up for your favorite heroes.
