The official Genshin Impact 2.4 Livestream has confirmed the four five-star characters that will recieve a limited banner for the upcoming Lantern Rite event.
Genshin Impact has taken the gaming industry by storm and the player base keeps growing by each day. The release of a new character is probably one of the most exciting events in the game for the majority of the community.
The official Genshin Impact 2.4 Livestream event has confirmed two brand new characters - Shenhe and Yun Jin. Shenhe will be a limited five-star character while Yun Jin will have a lower rarity. The new update will bring two double banners meaning that players will have the option to choose between four different five-star characters - Shenhe, Xiao, Zhongli and Ganyu. The new Genshin Impact update 2.4 will arrive around January 5, 2022.
A recent update by a beta leaker on the Genshin_Impact_leaks subreddit has revealed that Shenhe could have Energy issues while fighting which could prevent her from fulfilling her damage potential. Her whole kit indicates that she is a support character that thrives on dropping her elemental skill and burst before getting swapped out. These things could still get updated considering that she's currently in the 2.4 beta phase.
After many months of speculations, it's finally confirmed that she will be a Cryo character, making her the ninth Vision holder in the game so far. Nothing mentioned on the official art or the Twitter description indicates her rarity but she's heavily rumored to be a five-star character.
