Topaz & Jingliu: The Newest Sensations in Honkai Star Rail 1.4

Meet the Stars

Jingliu: The Transcendent Flash

First off, let's talk about Jingliu. Part of the esteemed High Cloud quintet, she's earned the title 'Transcendent Flash.'

Not just a legendary hero, Jingliu decided to walk a unique path to harness a power that could challenge even the gods. Interestingly, she seems to have vanished from the Xianzhou's records but has been labeled as a traitor in some annals.

Her English voice is backed by Amelie, adding more depth to her character. Known for her roles in Brawl Stars and Genshin Impact, Amelie promises to bring Jingliu alive with her stellar voice acting.

Topaz: The Radiant Smile

Switching gears to Topaz, she's a refreshing addition to the game.

While most of us have seen plenty of brooding, mysterious characters in games, Topaz is a breath of fresh air. She's all about happiness, and her radiant smile is infectious.

And there's more to her than meets the eye. As the senior manager of the Strategic Investment Department at the Interastral Peace Corporation, she holds significant power. With her partner, Numby, she roams the cosmos, settling various financial disputes.

Their bond seems to go beyond the usual, with Numby having a unique ability to sense riches.

Another Addition to the Roster

Guinaifen: The Fire Menace

Guinaifen is a Fire 4-star character and is guided by Nihility.

Originally from another world, Guinaifen found herself unexpectedly in Xianzhou. Today, she's a lively and spirited street entertainer. While her actual name is Guinevere, she was lovingly renamed Guinaifen by her close pal, Sushang.

In her new surroundings on the Loufu, and inspired by her love for Xianzhou's traditions, she quickly picked up various skills to sustain herself. This includes unique talents like eating noodles in an inverted position, breaking large rocks on others' torsos, and effortlessly catching flying objects with her hands, among others.

Gameplay Speculation

One fascinating aspect of Jingliu is her potential to switch stances based on whether she has her blindfold on. Rumors suggest she might have fluid animations and perhaps more than just two abilities.

Could she alternate between stances? We'll have to wait and watch.

As for Topaz, there's chatter about her possibly being a stance swapper, similar to the Lightning Lord. Though it's all speculative, the idea of having a character that controls warp trotters is exciting!

If there's any truth to the buzz, Topaz might just become the first character that rewards players with more credits.

Final Thoughts

Both Jingliu and Topaz bring something fresh to Honkai Star Rail.

Whether it's Jingliu's enigmatic past or Topaz's vibrant personality, players are in for a treat.

While I'm personally leaning a bit towards Topaz (those warp trotters are just too cute!), the choice between these two powerhouses will surely be a tough one.

So, who's it going to be for you?

Topaz or Jingliu? Or both?
