Genshin Impact’s Fleeting Colors event is finally live, which means travelers can get involved in a number of festivities around Liyue. However, one of the biggest draws of this year’s Lantern Rite Festival is the inclusion of free Genshin Impact characters

This means travelers don’t have to spend any Primogems to unlock their unit of choice, which is particularly good news for those that are currently saving for the game’s Ganyu banner and Zhongli banner reruns

Which free 4-star character should you choose in Genshin Impact?

Xiangling and Xingqiu are incredibly powerful in Genshin Impact’s current meta.

For those that are struggling to choose which free Genshin Impact character to unlock in the Lantern Rite Festival, we recommend picking either Xingqiu or Xiangling. Both these characters are some of the strongest units in the game and can be used in a variety of meta Genshin Impact team comps. 

Xingqiu is an excellent Hydro support who can greatly enhance the damage of any DPS character. His abilities also work incredibly well with Freeze and Melt teams. Meanwhile, Xiangling works as a fantastic Pyro DPS or sub-DPS unit, which is particularly useful for those looking to beat Spiral Abyss content.
