Genshin Impact 4.3 Leaks: Navia Kit, Release Date, and New Artifact Sets
Navia first made her appearance in the Archon Quests of Genshin Impact's 4.0 update and has quickly become one of the most eagerly awaited characters in the game. As a dedicated president hailing from Spina di Rosula, Navia wields a Geo vision, a rare and coveted element in the world of Teyvat. In this article, we will explore the leaked details surrounding Navia's abilities, release date, and unique artifact set.
Navia's Highly Anticipated Debut
Navia's first appearance in the Archon Quests of Genshin Impact's 4.0 update instantly captured the attention of players. As the dedicated president of Spina di Rosula, she wields a Geo vision, a rarity among new character additions in the game. In fact, the last Geo character to join the roster was Yun Jin, who made her debut in January 2022, making Navia's impending arrival even more exciting.
According to the credible leaker StepLeaker, Navia may grace the limited-time character banners in Genshin Impact's Version 4.3. While it remains to be seen whether she will be featured in the first or second half of the patch, the potential release date for Navia is estimated to be around December 20, 2023, or January 10, 2024.
Recent rumors suggest that Navia won't be alone in Version 4.3, with characters like Raiden Shogun, Arataki Itto, and Albedo potentially joining her in this highly-anticipated update.
Navia's Kit and Abilities
Leaker StepLeaker has not only provided information about Navia's release version but also shared insights into her kit. Navia appears to be a Geo DPS character with a unique twist on the often-overlooked Crystallize elemental reaction.
Her Elemental Skill comes in two variations:
Elemental Skill (Tap): Navia will consume all elemental chips produced by the Crystallize reaction to shoot and deal damage.
Elemental Skill (Long-press): Navia will rapidly charge and consume all chips from the Crystallize reaction to shoot enemies.
Navia's Elemental Burst is particularly intriguing, as it is expected to involve her summoning a literal cannon to fire at her foes, promising a unique and explosive playstyle.
New Artifact Sets in Version 4.3
Further adding to the excitement, another prominent leake disclosed that Genshin Impact's Version 4.3 may introduce two new artifact sets. While the names of these sets remain undisclosed, their effects have been broadly outlined.
One of these sets is tailored for Crystallize-focused DPS characters, making it the likely best-in-slot (BiS) choice for Navia. With no other Geo characters in the game who can effectively utilize Crystallize shards, this set seems custom-made for her unique abilities.
The other artifact set is believed to cater to healers in Genshin Impact by converting healing to characters with full health into buffs. Overhealing, often seen as wasted potential in the game, will no longer go to waste, making these healers even more indispensable in challenging battles.
