4.0 Update - New Characters

New Playable Characters

Lyney - 5 Star

A famed Fontainian magician who possesses great stage presence as well as gift of the gab. Audiences are enthralled by his exquisite skills, and they hang on to his every clever word.
Lyney's Charged Attack fires off a Prop Arrow, and upon hit, it will summon a Grin-Malkin Hat. Grin-Malkin Hat can taunt nearby opponents and if destroyed or if its duration expires, it will fire off a Pyrotechnic Strike at 1 nearby opponent, dealing Pyro DMG. Only 1 Hat can exist at any given time.

Lynette - 4 Star

A magic assistant of few words, her emotions are as inscrutable as any cat's.
Lunett's Bogglecat Box taunts nearby opponents and deals Anemo DMG to nearby opponents at intervals. When the Bogglecat Box comes into contact with Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro, it will gain the corresponding element and additionally fire Vivid Shots that will deal DMG from that element at intervals.

Freminet - 4 Star

A reserved young man who is well-versed in diving. Beneath his distant, icy demeanor lies a pure heart bereft of all flaws.
While Pers Timer is active, Freminet's Normal Attack will increase Pers' Pressure Level, and also unleash waves of frost that deal Cryo DMG. In this state, Freminet's Elemental Skill will turn into Shattering Pressure. Shattering Pressure executes different sorts of attacks based on the Pressure Level of Pers Timer, and then cancels Pers Timer.
