Honkai: Star Rail New Upcoming Character Guinaifen - Abilities, Release Date, and more!

During the broadcast for Honkai: Star Rail version 1.4, Guinaifen was presented in all its glory. She is a fascinating unit and has the potential to develop into one of the game's top nihility characters.


Honkai: Star Rail - Guinaifen​

Living on the Xianzhou Luofu is Guinaifen, a 4-star Fire character. Guinaifen's status as a streamer was addressed during the Honkai: Star Rail version 1.4 webcast. She is very well-liked and highly amusing. Sushang is her best buddy, and she performs on the street as well. In addition, despite the fact that she resides in the Loufu, she is not a native of any of the Xianzhou ships. It appears that Guinevere was her original name before it was changed to Guinaifen in Xianzhou. Sushang teaches her about Xianzhou's culture.

She is a 4-star in the game, which is fortunate because it will be lot simpler to pull for her than for a 5-star. Players can kill two birds with one stone by pulling for her in addition to the 5-star unit Topaz.

Honkai: Star Rail - Guinaifen Gameplay​

The gameplay of Guinaifen in Honkai Star Rail is centered around fireworks. Firecrackers are apparently utilized because, according to a Xianzhou tradition, they were once employed to ward off dangerous monsters. She's just using it to continue the custom, after all. Guinaifen's strategy is to give her opponents the burn state, which makes sense given that she is from the path of Nihility.
