If we play these events we can get the four-star character, Fischl, for free. We also find events on the islands to play individually or with friends (in "Reminiscence Training"). Specifically, during the "Resonating Visions" event, we can collect special shells containing stories and messages and redeem Fischl's new costume.

Back on the mainland, leaving the islands aside, Diluc, Kaedehara Kazuha and the new four-star playable character, Shikanoin Heizou, will also see their own stories unfold. For Diluc we find a new costume with a distinctive look, a new idle animation and new combat effects (all available in the Store at a limited-time discount).

As for Kaedehara Kazuha, we will be able to learn more of his story thanks to the first chapter of his legendary mission. His friend Shikanoin Heizou, a young detective with great talent who solves crimes for the Tenryou Commission, will be released in version 2.8 and we will meet him by joining the Encounter with Heizou to be detectives for a day. In combat he stands out for being the first character in the game to use catalyst at close range. He can inflict Anemo damage with powerful punches and kicks, and can even cause extra Elemental damage to enemies affected by Hydro, Pyro, Cryo or Electro. After Heizou, Kazuha and Klee's gacha in the initial phase of version 2.8, Yoimiya's will be available in the later phase of the update.
