Genshin Impact Update 1.4 is coming on March 17 and is bringing back some 5-Star favorites; the Anemo Archon Venti on his own banner along with a Childe (Tartaglia) Banner that includes new 4-star Rosaria.

Will you be wishing for Venti, Childe or Rosaria?

Rosaria is the new character revealed for 1.4 and she is a 4-Star, not a 5-star, so she should be much easier to wish for. Rosaria is a sister of the Church of Favonius, a polearm & cryo user.

New 1.4 Weapons

New weapons in Genshin Impact is always good.

Genshin Impact 1.4 update also brings in some new weapons:


  • Sword – The Alley Flash
  • Bow – Alley Hunter
  • Catalyst – Wine and Song


  • Bow – Elegy for the End

I think we all expect these to be on the next weapon banner.
