We won’t know anything official about the 4.3 Character and Weapon banners until the 4.3 live stream from HoYoverse, likely on December 6 or 8. However, there have been some reliable leaks over the past few weeks that give us a good, but not guaranteed, look at the characters and weapons coming with the new patch. The leaks come from WaffelGM on X (formerly Twitter).
I wouldn’t put as much credence on leaker information, as the 5-star character Albedo was long rumored to be coming in 4.3, but HoYoverse started marketing for the new Fontaine character Navia, adding credibility to the claims.
Should the rumors prove correct, the two 5-star characters we’ll get in Phase I of patch 4.3 are the new Geo character from Fontaine, Navia, and the Cryo swordswoman of Inazuma, Kamisato Ayaka.
Navia looks to be a GEO main DPS character focusing on explosions. She will also come with some off-field capabilities that allow her to synergize with other Geo characters like Noelle and Zhongli, though the full effect of her abilities is still a bit unclear. From what I could gather, her Skill functions similarly to Kamisato Ayato’s, allowing her to track enemies. Her Burst creates a field of Geo explosions in a radius around her, setting up plenty of opportunities for elemental reactions.
