Honkai Impact 3rd has announced that the action title will release v7.1 Starbound Painter on December 7th, 2023! Another new boss fight awaits in the new Story Chapter XLII, where Sa, the one holding the strings for the entirety of Part 1.5, has finally come to the forefront! In addition, new events, new outfits, new UI, and new bonuses will also come along with the update! Griseo, having grown from a young painter into an intergalactic traveler, brings together her childhood dream and adulthood mission, fighting with a laser saber that takes the form of a pen in ordinary times!
Aside from the main story, the Valkyrie, prep, and lineup screens will be reworked in Honkai Impact 3rd v7.1
The new SP battlesuit Griseo’s Cosmic Expression is an SD-type support battlesuit that deals with Physical Bleed DMG. Internal Energy is an essential component of her combat mechanics, much like kinetic energy for battlesuits. She uses a laser saber in battle and places Beacons around enemies to replenish her energy.
When her Internal Energy is fully charged and there is a Beacon nearby, Griseo can use all of her Internal Energy to cast her Special Weapon Skill and then her Ultimate, which summons a massive meteor that descends from the sky to strike enemies within the Beacon’s range and deal Physical Bleed DMG. Additionally, as a dependable supporter, she can increase her team’s DMG.
Moving on to Story Chapter XLII, where a brand-new boss battle awaits you in the pouring rain. Sa, the mastermind behind the scenes, is hiding in the storm’s eye in the sky. Fu Hua, equipped with Griseo’s paintbrush, makes his way through the gloomy clouds and into the storm’s eye. Captains can manipulate various forms of Fu Hua to fend off Sa’s attacks, and Griseo will constantly support Fu Hua on the side.
Aside from the main story, the main screen of the bridge, the Valkyrie, prep, and lineup screens will be reworked in v7.1. The new UI will not only adjust the appearance and style of each screen but also optimize its usability. In addition to the updates in the overall design of buttons and layout, the new Valkyrie screen will display different backgrounds according to the types of Valkyries.
The equipment and skill screens will have a functional optimization for more convenient operations. A new Recommendations tab will be added to the prep screen, showing the available events and main story chapters in the current version. Furthermore, the new lineup screen will also be upgraded to enable Quick Lineup and improve accessibility. Last but not least, after the v7.1 update, Captains on mobile devices can save storage space by deleting audio and visual resources of some story chapters, and unused voice-over language packs!
Multiple events will be available over time in Honkai Impact 3rd v7.1
In the upcoming new version, multiple events will be available over time. During these events, there are 4 event-specific missions and 1 login mission. Complete any 4 of them to claim the Herrscher of Sentience Character Card! This must be the gift from the great Herrscher of Sentience!
