4-star Characters on the Topaz Banner
As with every new character release in Honkai Star Rail, Topaz's banner comes with an array of 4-star characters with increased drop rates. These 4-star characters add diversity and gameplay options for players. In the 1.4 update, the featured 4-star characters are:
Guinaifen (Fire/Nihility): Guinaifen is the newest 4-star addition to the game and is a permanent character on the roster. As a Nihility unit, she excels at inflicting Burn on enemies, making her a valuable Damage over Time (DoT) enabler during battles.
Luka (Physical/Nihility): Luka, another 4-star character, specializes in DoT effects and offers versatility in combat.
Sushang (Physical/Hunt): Sushang is a 4-star character known for her powerful single-target attacks, following the Hunt Path, and providing players with options to tackle foes efficiently.
These 4-star characters enhance your team-building options and can be obtained through the Stellar Warp after their banner expires. This means you have a chance to add Guinaifen, Luka, and Sushang to your permanent roster for future adventures.
