Discover the full roster of 5-Star and 4-Star characters available in both phases of Genshin Impact Version 4.4, including some unexpected additions.

Genshin Impact has revealed the Event Wishes for Phase 1 of Version 4.4, and among its surprises, Faruzan features as 4-Star outside Wanderer's banner for the first time. While Genshin Impact has had some controversy regarding the Lantern Rite in 2024, Version 4.4 is set to introduce a large zone for players to sink their teeth into, and the debut of Xianyun and Gaming will offer a new niche to build around. The Lantern Rite rewards may not be as generous as Genshin Impact fans may have hoped, but the content offered by Version 4.4 is certainly substantial.

On top of commencing the drip marketing for Chiori, Genshin Impact also revealed the full details of the Event Wishes that await players on January 31, 2024. While Nahida and Xianyun were known factors, Genshin Impact fans have now been introduced to the 4-Star characters that will be accompanying the 5-Star Catalysts during the first half of the update.

As revealed on Twitter by the official Genshin Impact account, Phase 1 will see Noelle, Gaming, and Faruzan as its featured 4-Star characters in Version 4.4. While Gaming was an expected inclusion in the line-up, both Noelle and Faruzan came as a pleasant surprise to the community. Whereas Noelle saw an immense power upgrade when Furina was released in Genshin Impact's Version 4.2, Faruzan is considered an important fixture in most Anemo teams, especially at full Constellations.

As opposed to the Pyro Claymore Gaming, it remains to be seen if Faruzan has good synergy with Xianyun. However, both characters are ideal support options for Xiao in Genshin Impact, who is set to re-run during the second half of Version 4.4. While HoYoverse hasn't formally announced the 4-Star characters for Phase 2 of Version 4.4, the preload files can provide the full answer.
