After the Genshin Impact 4.3 Release Date and Character Banners, the next topic is the weapon banner of the game.

Phase 1 of the game, features the new character of Navia, who uses her signature weapon, ‘Verdict’.

This is a 5-star Claymore weapon with a Crit Rate sub-stat and a high base Attack. For the other character of Ayaka, expect the weapon of Mistsplitter Reforged. 

As you already know, Phase 2 of the game features characters such as; Raiden and Yoimiya banners; hence the Thundering Pulse and Engulfing Lighting are reserved for this phase. We still do not have any information about the four-star weapons

Now, coming to the new artifacts set in the game of Genshin Impact 4.3 version. Well, the two new artifact sets involved in the game are; Nighttime Whispers in the Echoing Woods and Song of Days Past.

Out of these, the Nighttime Whispers in the Echoing Woods are specifically made to work with the character of Navia. 

In the first set of artifacts, i.e., the Nighttime Whispers in the Echoing Woods, on using the 2-piece the attacks get increased by 18%, whereas the 4-piece set grants the user.

The heart of the gold effect for about 10 seconds immediately after using the Elemental Skill. This effect would, thus, increase the Geo Damage power of the character by 16%.

While the character is under the shield granted by the Crystallize reaction, the Geo Damage effect increases instantly by 150%, but remember, and this effect disappears after one second when the shield is lost.

For the second set of artifacts, i.e., Song of Days Past, its 2-piece grants the players a wider 15% healing bonus.

On the other hand, the 4-piece set, provides the character with a Yearning effect for about 10 seconds after they heal a party member.

This effect records the total healing amount, along with the overflow. And when this effect expires, this effect gets transformed into another effect, i.e., Waves from that day.

During this effect, when any active character hits its opponent with the normal, charged, plunging attack, elemental burst, or the elemental skill, the damage dealt by it, would be increased by about 3% of the healing of the total amount recorded by the Yearning effect.

Also, the ‘Waves from that Day’, effect also lasts till 10 times its usage, or for just 10 seconds from its start.
