Genshin Impact 4.7 has recently arrived, yet players are already thrilled for details about the upcoming version 4.8. Besides the alleged introduction of Natlan and a slew of new characters, another revelation that is very much worth expecting is we can get a character for free.

It is a common in-game activity when the developers let players choose a free 4-star unit as part of important events. Although 4-star characters sometimes get underrated, we should remember that they hold unexpected abilities. They can provide good support or resonance with specific elemental reactions.

Kirara's support for new elemental reaction

“With the proper team comp, aided by the upcoming Emilie, Kirara could be a great free character offered in Version 4.8.”

Though the 4-star Dendro character might not be the best Dendro unit, Emilie's introduction could elevate Kirara's effectiveness.

The confirmed Dendro character - Emilie, is rumored to enhance Burning Elemental Reactions. If this is accurate, Kirara could act as a support unit in teams with Emilie. She can assist with Dendro application against enemies and trigger Dendro Resonance to boost Elemental Mastery in Genshin Impact.

Additionally, Kirara provides decent shielding. While she cannot match the skill level of Geo Archon Zhongli, she still offers reliable team shield protection and contributes to Dendro spread on enemies.

Players who already have her and believe the Version 4.8 leak could unlock Kirara’s Constellations.

Emilie Analysis
Kirara could be a great support for Emilie and the upcoming elemental reaction.

Do note that after the release of Dendro element, many units have become more valuable. An example is Kuki Shinobu or Yae Miko and their roles in Taser team comps.

Despite Kirara's individual limitations, with the right team setup and support from Emilie, Kirara could become a valuable free character in Genshin Impact 4.8.
