The latest Genshin Impact 4.8 leaks from hxg and dimbreath point toward Yelan, Navia, and Nilou having character banner reruns in the upcoming version update along with the new Dendro character Emilie. The Navia and Nilou banners are speculated to rerun during the first half while Yelan and Emilie could be featured in the second. Navia, Nilou, and Yelan are strong characters and fulfill different roles in the meta.

This article provides reasons to potentially pull for all three characters with a final verdict on which one would be the best choice in Genshin Impact 4.8.

Note: The information is based on leaks and is subject to change.


Reasons to pull for Yelan in Genshin Impact 4.8

Here are some compelling reasons to pull for Yelan if the Genshin Impact 4.8 leaks end up being true:

  • Yelan is an exceptional Sub-DPS character that provides good Hydro application and great off-field damage to support the Main DPS.
  • She has excellent synergy with many 4-star characters like Xingqiu, Xiangling, Bennett, Fischl, and Sucrose
  • Yelan is one of the best characters to use for exploration
  • She is a relatively simple character to use and is very easy to build for free-to-play users as stacking health is not that hard with artifacts and weapons

Reasons to pull for Navia in Genshin Impact 4.8

Here are some reasons why you should consider pulling for Navia in Version 4.8:

  • Navia is a unique Geo character that puts more emphasis on having characters of different elements in the team rather than a full Geo team
  • She has extremely good burst damage thanks to her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst
  • She synergizes quite well with meta characters like Zhongli, Furina, Bennett, and Fischl.
  • She is one of the most flexible Geo characters in the game and has a very well-executed kit to bring some much-needed flair to the Geo character roster.

Reasons to pull for Nilou in Genshin Impact 4.8

Listed below are a couple of reasons why Nilou can be a good choice to pull for in Genshin Impact 4.8:

  • Nilou is an exceptionally strong Hydro character in her signature Bloom team compositions
  • She has a very satisfying playstyle with the Bountiful Core mechanic
  • Nilou is a character tailor-made for casual players and isn't mechanically intensive
  • She is quite a viable character to build for free-to-play users

Yelan is the best character to pull for in Genshin Impact 4.8

Yelan is the safe choice to pull for, according to the Version 4.8 leaks. She is an extremely strong character in the meta and quite easy to use as well. She dovetails pretty well with almost all of the top Main DPS characters and her exploration perks make roaming around the world enjoyable. Out of three characters potentially having a rerun banner in Version 4.8, Yelan is the most consistent and reliable performer across a variety of team comps.

Navia is a strong Main DPS character but she gets outclassed in the meta by better characters. She does a lot of burst damage but falters if you are looking for a consistent damage dealer. While she does offer flexibility in her kit despite being a Geo character, she is still limited to certain team comps to truly shine.

Finally, Nilou is a niche Hydro character that only excels in one particular team comp which is Bloom. Only Hydro and Dendro characters can bring the maximum value out of her. While her Bloom comps are exceptionally strong, it is quite one-dimensional and isn't universally strong across various scenarios which inherently drops her value.
