Version 4.8 Overview - STARCHASM NYX
May 23, 2021

 

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?"


 EQUIPMENT 

SIGNATURE EQUIPMENT - SANGUINE GAZE and VERNE

  • SANGUINE GAZE: UNION is the best weapon for Starchasm Nyx. In Burst Mode, Sanguine weapon skill unleashes a claw that pulls enemies and deals strong Ice DMG. 
  • VERNE stigma set is a strong ice DPS set with very high stats and provides a unique multiplier for Seele. Herrscher of Reason and Argent Knight can use Verne too, but Ana set is still more suitable for them.
  • SUPPLY: Sanguine Gaze and Verne are must-haves for Nyx! They will be available in Focused Supply (1 week) and Equipment Expansion Supply (2 weeks)

Sanguine Gaze: Union active skill

 

PRI ARM - OBLIVION DOWN and GOEMON G3

  • [OBLIVION DOWN] is the PRI-ARM of the Divine Key [Fenghuang Down]. It can stop enemies just like its regular version, as well as increases SP recovery for its user. With some clever use, it can turn even Phoenix into a decent damage dealer.
  • GOEMON added as a G3 stigma in Forge.  (T) with Goemon (M) and (B) is a standard universal set for Hawk of the Fog, Darkbolt Jonin, Shadow Knight and even works as a substitute for Herrscher of Thunder. Go farm if you need them!


EXTRA NEWS: Azure Empyrea's signature weapon - Nebulous Duality will also get a PRI-ARM, expected to arrive in version 4.9

 

 NEW BOUNTY MARK - UNIVERSAL MIRAGE

NEW MATERIAL - CRYSTALYTE

In 4.8, all ghosts, shades and stigma spirits are converted into streamlined G1, G2 and G3 materials called Crystalyte. There are four versions of Crystalytes - Red, Blue, Purple and Grey. Each G1,2,3 gear will use one of the Crystalytes for forging.  


The Crystalyte (and fuel) can be farmed from the new Bounty Mark called  UNIVERSAL MIRAGE 

 

NEW BOUNTY MARK - UNIVERSAL MIRAGE

UNIVERSAL MIRAGE has four themes for the four Crystalyte colours. Each theme has 6 stages that give a different amount of G1,2,3 Crystalyte. The four themes have specific damage type advantages. During the introductory period, all stages will be open every day.

 EX ABYSS CHANGES 
EXALTED ABYSS BIG CHANGE!
Exalted Abyss Superstring Dimension has a big change - enemies' DEF and Elemental Resistance now scale with Disturbance! But don't worry~ Enemies' HP are also adjusted, and some bosses' HP have been reduced.  In reality, this will make Disturbances below 400 increasingly easier as the number reduces, compared to current version.

 

NEW BOSS - NIHILUS HUSK [BLOCKADE ver]

  • Lightning UP weather new boss: Nihilus Husk… again? 
  • Although it is the same name and the same weather, this Husk uses the mechanic from the Blockade version. 
  • This new Husk does not replace the old one. Both versions of Husk exist in EX Abyss cycle.

 

NEW QUANTUM SIDE STAGE

  • Quantum weather new side stage featuring Soul Link enemies.
  • What a coincidence. Nyx is a Quantum-type that deals more damage against multiple enemies and can remove Soul Link effect from enemies affected by her Ultimate.
  • Surely a Soul Link Quantum-type final floor wouldn't be coming in the future, right? HMMM

 

BLOODTHIRST and HOMU MAGICIAN CHANGES

  • Bloodthirst Weather - Homu Magician now stays on the field during the Hola and Homei phase. Homu HP increased in accordance with the change.
  • Bloodthirst weather effect:  Damage Bonus after kill now affects the whole team.
