While the release of new five-star characters is always a hot topic, the introduction of a new main region tends to be the highlight of the year for many Genshin Impact players.
Over the past few months, numerous leaks have hinted at the content awaiting players in the forthcoming Fontaine region.
Introducing Lyney and Lynette
Reliable leaker HutaoLover77 has unveiled the identities of the two characters that will feature in Genshin Impact version 4.0.
According to the leak, the first Fontaine update will include the fan-favorite sibling pair Lyney and Lynette.
Both characters have been rumored to join the playable lineup since their debut in one of Genshin Impact’s initial story teasers in 2020.
The leak suggests they will share the same banner, which aligns with earlier leaks indicating different rarities for the siblings.
Character Details: Rarity and Elements
Lyney is expected to be a new five-star character, while his sister Lynette will likely have a lower four-star rarity. This means that players can acquire both characters by pulling on the same banner.
In terms of elements, multiple leaks suggest that Lyney will be a Pyro character, similar to that of Dehya, wielding a bow as his primary weapon.
As a main DPS character in Genshin Impact, Lyney’s kit is thought to be similar to Yoimiya’s, another Pyro bow character who serves as the primary damage dealer in most parties.
Currently, his overall damage numbers are reportedly stronger than Tighnari’s but weaker than Ganyu’s.
However, these stats should be taken with caution, as HoYoverse may make significant changes to the characters’ kits before 4.0 is released.
Leakers claim that Lynette will be an Anemo character capable of summoning an elemental spirit that remains on the field for 10 seconds.
The spirit will deal coordinated damage when the active character executes a Charged Attack.
Fans have expressed surprise that neither character uses the Hydro element, which is typically associated with Fontaine.
As the anticipation for the new characters and region builds, it’s essential to look back at what led us here.
With early leaks of Genshin Impact 3.7, players were introduced to a world of possibilities and challenges that paved the way for the upcoming 4.0 update.
