One of the bigger rumors is around buffs and nerfs for certain characters. Diluc, Venti, and Fischl will be getting nerfs, while Mona, Keqing, and Beidou are rumored to be getting buffs. Exactly what these entail is not known just yet.

There are reported to be four new characters on the way. Zhongli is a 5 Star Geo users armed with a polearm, Child is a spear-wielding 5 Star Water elemental user, Xinyan is a 4 Star Pyro user, and Dionna is 4 Star a Cryo user.

Oculi Compass

The update will apparently include an Oculi Compass that will help you track down those Anemoculus and Geoculus that you are missing, which would be a superb addition to the game, in our opinion.
