    Genshin Impact Version 4.3 Update Now Live With Patch Notes

    The Fontanalia Festival begins.

    HoYoverse have released the Genshin Impact Version 4.3 “Roses and Muskets” update on all platforms, and full patch notes for the update have been revealed. Additionally, players may earn compensation for the recent downtime after installing the new update.

    Genshin Impact Version 4.3 is the game’s last major update of 2023. Version 4.3 includes limited-time events, all-new playable characters, and improved features as players continue their exploration of the Fontaine region. A number of quality-of-life improvements and bug fixes were applied in the new update as well. 

    Genshin Impact Version 4.3 Patch Notes

    Genshin Impact Version 4.3 marks the beginning of the Fontinalia Festival. This event will honor the tradition of the legendary Lochknights, who welcomed the previous Hydro Archon Egeria to Fontaine. Furina, the Kamisato siblings, the Traveler, and Chiori will work together on a new film for this event. The Fontinalia Festival will also feature several mini-games ranging from designing a short film to marksman training.

    Navia and Chevreuse will join Genshin Impact as playable characters in Version 4.3. Navia arrives first alongside a Kamisato Ayaka rerun in phase 1, followed by Chevreuse and reruns of Raiden Shogun and Yoimiya in phase 2. Fortunately, Genshin Impact players were given 800 Primogems, and another 600 have been given out as compensation for maintenance. 

    Patch notes are available below, via HoYoverse:

    Update Details
    I. New Characters
    5-Star Character “Helm of the Radiant Rose” Navia (Geo)
    ◇ Vision: Geo
    ◇ Weapon: Claymore
    ◇ The current President of Spina di Rosula, who is lovely, dutiful, and a great boss.
    ◆ Elemental Skill: Ceremonial Crystalshot
    ◆ When a character in a party with Navia obtains an Elemental Shard created from the Crystallize reaction, Navia will gain Crystal Shrapnel. When she fires, Navia will fire multiple Rosula Shardshots that can penetrate opponents, dealing Geo DMG. The more Rosula Shardshots that strike opponents, the greater the DMG dealt to them. Unleashing Navia’s Elemental Skill will consume accumulated Crystal Shrapnel stacks, and the number of Rosula Shardshots and DMG dealt by “Ceremonial Crystalshot” will be increased based on the number of Crystal Shrapnel stacks. Hold the Elemental Skill to enter Aiming Mode and continually collect Elemental Shards nearby.
    ◆ Elemental Burst: As the Sunlit Sky’s Singing Salute
    ◆ Call for a magnificent Rosula Dorata Salute. Unleashes a massive cannon bombardment on opponents in front of her, dealing AoE Geo DMG and providing Cannon Fire Support for a duration afterward, periodically dealing Geo DMG. When cannon attacks hit opponents, Navia will gain 1 stack of Crystal Shrapnel.
    4-Star Character “Executor of Justice” Chevreuse (Pyro)
    ◇ Vision: Pyro
    ◇ Weapon: Polearm
    ◇ The captain of the Special Security and Surveillance Patrol, who wears justice as an ever-present seal upon her heart. Her musket shall only ever point at the guilty.
    ◆ Elemental Skill: Short-Range Rapid Interdiction Fire
    ◆ Fires at her opponent(s), dealing AoE Pyro DMG. If a nearby character in the party triggers an Overloaded reaction, Chevreuse gains 1 Overcharged Ball, increasing the AoE and DMG of her Elemental Skill. After Chevreuse fires a shot, she will continuously restore HP to the active character on the field.
    ◆ Elemental Burst: Ring of Bursting Grenades
    ◆ Fires an explosive grenade at opponents, dealing AoE Pyro DMG. After the projectile hits, it will split into many secondary explosive shells. These shells will burst after a short interval, dealing Pyro DMG.
    II. New Equipment
    1. New Weapons (Examples based on Refinement Rank 1)
    Verdict (5-Star Claymore)
    Increases ATK by 20%. When characters in your party obtain Elemental Shards from Crystallize reactions, the equipping character will gain 1 Seal, increasing Elemental Skill DMG by 18%. The Seal lasts for 15s, and the equipper may have up to 2 Seals at once. All of the equipper’s Seals will disappear 0.2s after their Elemental Skill deals DMG.
    ◆ During the event wish “Epitome Invocation,” the event-exclusive 5-star weapon Verdict (Claymore) will receive a huge drop-rate boost!
    Ultimate Overlord’s Mega Magic Sword (4-Star Claymore)
    ATK increased by 12%. That’s not all! The support from all Melusines you’ve helped in Merusea Village fills you with strength! Based on the number of them you’ve helped, your ATK is increased by up to an additional 12%.
    ◆ Ultimate Overlord’s Mega Magic Sword (Claymore) and its refinement materials can be redeemed in the event “Roses and Muskets.”
    2. New Artifacts
    Song of Days Past (4-Star and 5-Star)
    ◇ 2-Piece Set: Healing Bonus +15%.
    ◇ 4-Piece Set: When the equipping character heals a party member, the Yearning effect will be created for 6s, which records the total amount of healing provided (including overflow healing). When the duration expires, the Yearning effect will be transformed into the “Waves of Days Past” effect: When your active party member hits an opponent with a Normal Attack, Charged Attack, Plunging Attack, Elemental Skill, or Elemental Burst, the DMG dealt will be increased by 8% of the total healing amount recorded by the Yearning effect. The “Waves of Days Past” effect is removed after it has taken effect 5 times or after 10s. A single instance of the Yearning effect can record up to 15,000 healing, and only a single instance can exist at once, but it can record the healing from multiple equipping characters. Equipping characters on standby can still trigger this effect.
    Nighttime Whispers in the Echoing Woods (4-Star and 5-Star)
    ◇ 2-Piece Set: ATK +18%.
    ◇ 4-Piece Set: After using an Elemental Skill, gain a 20% Geo DMG Bonus for 10s. While under a shield granted by the Crystallize reaction, the above effect will be increased by 150%, and this additional increase disappears 1s after that shield is lost.
    III. New Domain
    Domain of Blessing: Waterfall Wen
    ◇ An ancient ruined city that was once used by a now-bygone secret order as an ad-hoc site of assembly. Now, all that remains to rule the roost are beasts bereft of language or intellect.
