Best Genshin Impact 4-Star Character: Ranking All the Characters in 2021

We will be listing all the 4-Star characters available in Genshin Impact in 2021 and categorizing them into tiers.

Created by the Chinese developer miHoYo, Genshin Impact is an immersive open-world RPG that is free-to-play on platforms like PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, PC, Android, and iOS. Players can explore the vast world of Teyvat in a party of 4. That’s why it’s important to keep strong characters in your party who can ensure success in every battle.

As we know, Genshin Impact rates the playable characters 3, 4, or 5 Stars depending on their Rarity. While 5-star characters are the hardest to obtain, players have somewhat better luck obtaining 4-star characters using the game’s gacha system. But more on that later.

4-Star characters may not be as flashy as 5-star characters but they still contribute a lot to the team’s core strength. Moreover, some are even close alternatives to certain 5-star characters. In this guide, we will be listing all the 4-Star characters you can obtain in Genshin Impact and rank them. We will also explain how you can obtain these characters.

Best 4-Star Characters in Genshin Impact (A Complete Tier List)

  • Best (S-tier) : Bennett, Diona, Xingqiu, Sucrose, Ningguang, Xiangling
  • Good (A-tier) : Kaeya, Razor, Noelle, Fischl, Chongyun, Xinyan, Rosaria, Yanfei, Sayu
  • Average (B-tier) : Amber, Lisa, Beidou, Barbara

While they are all excellent characters in their own right, our top picks for the S-tier category include Bennett, Xingqiu, Ningguang, Sucrose, Diona, and Xiangling. Starting off with Bennett, he has made it to the top of the list due to being the best support character you can have in your party lineup. He is loved by every Genshin player and has some pretty cool features. Most notably, he can buff damage and heal party members at the same time. Aside from providing the fastest and most consistent healing, he also generates energy quicker than most characters and has lower cooldowns.

On the other hand, characters like Ningguang and Xingqiu are heavy-hitters whose attacks can deal a great deal of damage. They are the perfect characters to have in your party if you like to play on the offensive. Moreover, we also have Diona on the list who has the second-best shield in the game after the 5-star character Zhongli, making her a good alternative for him. Then we have Xiangling, a Pyro user who is a close alternative to the 5-star character Diluc. Her Pyronado attacks and Elemental bursts deal devastating damage to enemies within the swinging range of her polearm. Finally, we have Sucrose who is an excellent Anemo user and one of the best support you can have at your party. Moreover, she is great for crowd control and grants tons of Elemental Mastery. She is a close alternative to 5-star Anemo users like Jean and Venti.

How to Unlock 4 Star Characters

Genshin Impact lets players gamble for rare items and characters using its Gacha system, which is also known as the Wish/Banner system. In order to make Wishes, players must purchase banners using Primogems that may grant them a 3-star, 4-star, or 5-star reward. Genshin typically has three banners at any given time with the addition of a separate banner available exclusively to newcomers, all of which give you the chance to obtain different items.

Primogems are Genshin Impact’s in-game premium currency that can be obtained through story progression, completing in-game tasks, or clearing Floors 9 to 12 of the Spyral Abyss, all of which require extensive grinding. However, you may skip this tedious process if you are willing to spend real money to buy Primogems. Given the slim chances of obtaining a high-rarity character, the game passively forces you to follow the second method. The cheapest pack which costs $0.99 USD contains 60 Primogems. Whereas the most expensive pack worth $99.99 USD contains 6,480 Primogems. 160 Primogems can be converted into one Fate or Wish through Paimon’s Bargains.

It is also advisable to look out for the various Character Event Wish banners Genshin Impact releases for a limited time. Those banners typically contain one 5-star character and three 4-star characters. The gacha system is designed in a way that 50% of 4-star pulls will grant you one of the 4-star characters featured on the banner. These banners have a run-time of around 3 weeks. So it is essential that you keep an eye out for those timed events.

Although, Beginner’s Wish and Standard Wish have no limited run-time. In addition, players are guaranteed to receive Noelle during their first set of 10 wishes using the Beginner’s Wish. Furthermore, players have noticed that one event every two updates is likely to grant you a free 4-star character. Some of the 4-star characters obtained through this method included Fischl with the version 1.1 update, any 4-star Liyue character of the player’s choice with the version 1.3 update, and Diona with the version 1.5 update.

How many 4-Star Characters are there in Genshin Impact

With over 30 playable characters and growing, the game’s current line-up consists of 19 4-star characters.
