Hoi captains! Welcome back to another Honkai Impact Version Overview. In Version 4.8, we have a brand new S-rank Quantum-type Ice Seele STARCHASM NYX, A New Bounty Mark, Serverwide Event STAN WARS, Chapter 24, FOUR amazing outfits and more!
NEW BATTLESUIT - STARCHASM NYX
STARCHASM NYX is Seele's S-rank Quantum-type ICE DPS that uses scythe and claws to deal powerful Ice DMG. Nyx is especially strong against multiple enemies thanks to her skill [Nightmare Thorn] that transfers damage across affected enemies.
At 75 SP, she can enter Burst Mode, collapse Quantum-type enemies and tear them apart with her claws. Press Ultimate again while in Burst Mode to unleash [Time of Metamorph] which pauses stage timer along with all existing buff/debuff duration and deals massive damage!
"Do you want to become Seele's toy?"
SIGNATURE EQUIPMENT - SANGUINE GAZE and VERNE
Sanguine Gaze: Union active skill
PRI ARM - OBLIVION DOWN and GOEMON G3
EXTRA NEWS: Azure Empyrea's signature weapon - Nebulous Duality will also get a PRI-ARM, expected to arrive in version 4.9
