New 1.4 Characters!

As with every new version of a HoYoverse game, we can expect to see brand-new characters debuting on our screens. In 1.4, we’ll meet the mysterious Jingliu, first shown during Jing Yuan’s beautiful promo animation. A 5-star character who wields the element of ice, and will undoubtedly catch the eyes of fans of 2B from Nier Automata (thanks to her blindfold). 

Furthermore, there’s another 5-star character being added to the roster – Topaz! Actually, it’s Topaz and Numby, her Warp Trotter companion – yes, those things you kill for extra rewards when exploring. Anyway, Topaz utilises the element of fire in combat and was first seen on the cover of the 4-star “Trend of the Universal Market” Light Cone. 

There’s only one new 4-star character in Honkai Star Rail 1.4 – Guinaifen! Similarly to Topaz, Guinaifen was simply a piece of art on the 4-star Light Cone, “Subscribe for More!”. Fans will finally get to obtain her and test out her abilities.

New Story Quests

Lastly, will there be brand-new story quests? Possibly! In fact, there’s a high probability that we’ll get a few extra missions to continue the main story. Plus, there will be 3 new Companion Quests for Topaz, Guinaifen, and Jingliu.

The live stream is due to start at 12:30 pm BST / 19:30 pm (UTC+8)! We’ve also got a Honkai Star Rail Light Cone tier list that you can have a read of while you wait for the stream to start. Plus, there are always new codes dropping during a live stream, so make sure to check our Honkai Star Rail codes!
