Lantern Rite is a remarkable event that has recently made a comeback in Genshin Impact update 2.4. The Stand By Me version features a slew of 4-star characters such as Chongyun, Ningguang, Xiangling, Xingqiu, Beidou, Xinyan, Yanfei, and Yun Jin.

In this character lineup, which is the Lantern Rite free character that you should choose to get? And how can you get them?

I. Best 4-star character in Genshin Impact Latern Rite

Check out 8 free 4-star units with the most universally useful uptop.

1. Xingqiu

The Guhua geek can boost the main DPS’s damage sealing, trigger the powerful Vaporize elemental reactions, and can even heal somewhat. Moreover, Xingqiu’s burst can automatically apply Hydro status on normal attacks.

Genshin Xingqiu
Equip him with Sacrificial Sword and he will be the best Lantern Rite free character you never regret to get.

2. Xiangling

Xiangling is one of the strongest 4-star Genshin characters in general and the second-best Pyro support after Bennett. Her Pyronado burst deal a huge amount of DMG and a C4 Xiangling will do wonders in combat.

Xiangling 8
You can pair her with a Hydro vision holder to launch the best numbers.

3. Ningguang

After Itto was released, Ningguang seems to lose her Geo DPS throne. However, she is still a powerhouse for those who haven’t built Itto fully or need to get materials from the Golden Wolflord.

She is the best in using her chunky damage, so make sure you don’t hate using charged attacks before obtaining her.

Ningguang Genshin
Ningguang is a beautiful lady with insane power.

4. Yanfei

In the meantime, Yanfei can be built both as a DPS or support. She can also be Klee’s alternative as they both use Pyro Catalysts.

When paired with other Pyro units, she provides Pyro resonance which brings about an extra 25% ATK.

Getting copies of Yanfei will up Constellation to Level 6, increasing her Scarlet Seal and inflicting fire damage.

5. Chongyun

Players mostly use Chongyun to trigger Melt reactions or to synergize with other Cryo units. Being a busrt DMG dealer, he only shatters opponents instantly and this is not ideal for players who want permafreeze. Still, he remains a Lantern Rite free character you should not miss.

Chongyun Ice Bridge
Chongyun is a decent 4-star in the game.

6. Beidou

Beidou ranks a bit low as Raiden Shogun’s elemental burst has not been able to activate her burst at the moment. If that time comes, electro will be less finicky and the damage problems may not be a problem anymore.

Beidou Team
Her element can combine with Cryo, Hydro, and Pyro elements.

7. Yun Jin

Genshin Impact Yun Jin can be a great support. However, her team synergy has yet been tested given that she was recently added alongside Shenhe in update 2.4.

Her skills may match teams with diverse elements and a main DMG dealer who uses normal hits to deal damage. Beside having an intriguing design and backstory, Yun Jin seems like a less formidable pick than others unless she gets buffed a bit.

Yunjin Leaks
Yun Jin needs more time for her skills to be proven.

8. Xinyan

Talking about gameplay, Xinyan’s skills seem lackluster. Although her abilities scale with defense, her role is the main damage dealer. New characters are shadowing her for her better defense scaling and support, such as Itto, Yun Jin, or Gorou.

Xinyan Claymore
She is best to find overworld enemies if you properly invest in Xinyan.
