Genshin Impact 4.8 leak shows new visual effects for five characters

The recent Genshin Impact 4.8 leak has revealed the "Painted Voyage" trails visual effect. It is speculated to be a cosmetic that can be obtained from the upcoming Imaginarium Theater game mode. To unlock the Painted Voyage trails, you will likely have to gain Voyage Keys. This could likely be done by completing Performance Challenges in the Imaginarium Theater.

Consuming two Voyage Keys lets you potentially unlock one of the five characters' Painted Voyage stage. These stages are challenges that feature buffs and debuffs. Each character's Painted Voyage stage is rumored to have different arena effects.

Completing these stages is speculated to grant you the Painted Voyage trail. The five characters that are currently leaked to get the Painted Voyage trail in Genshin Impact include:

  • Jean
  • Diluc
  • Ningguang
  • Kirara
  • Qiqi

Listed below are the effects that each character's Painted Voyage stage may potentially have:


Characters periodically regenerate Energy during "Dark Side of Dawn Phase I".


There are currently no leaks regarding Ningguang's Painted Voyage stage.


All party members periodically lose HP in the "Icy Resurrection Phase II." Characters could die if they lose all their HP. The Cryo and Physical RES of opponents is potentially increased.


Smoldering Flames is periodically inflicted on your character in this stage. You take Pyro DMG until you cleanse the inflicted Pyro element.


The arena is covered in water and could apply Hydro to characters and enemies in Phase II.

If we go by Genshin Impact's update schedule, Version 4.8 can be expected to go live on July 17, 2024. The new Dendro 5-star character, Emilie, is also a part of this update.
