Among these 4* weapons, The Flute (sword), Dragon’s Bane (polearm), and Favonius Codex (catalyst) are also permanently available in the Standard Wish – Wanderlust Invocation without any boosted drop rates.

Final Thoughts

Navia is a new character and her value is difficult to judge at the moment. Players are cautioned to wait for a few days after her release to decide whether or not to pull for her. Ayaka has always been a top-tier hypercarry DPS, but Freeze as a playstyle is losing the edge to Hyperbloom teams nowadays. Hyperbloom does not make Freeze less competitive, it’s just Freeze is no longer the best team comp in the Genshin Impact META.

Among the 4* characters, Sucrose is a great Anemo support character worth having. Rosaria is also an amazing Cryo support. Candace has a niche ability that is not very useful in combat at the moment, maybe she will shine someday in the future. The value of Verdict (Navia’s weapon) depends on the player owning Navia. Otherwise, it is not a very useful weapon for most claymore users.

On the other hand, Mistsplitter Reforged (Ayaka’s weapon), is a great weapon for any sword user. Among the 4* weapons, Dragon’s Bane is amazing for Hyperbloom Raiden and Xiangling (if her ER needs are met). Favonius Codex can help out the ER needs of its wielder, but not generally the best option.
