Two brand-new Honkai: Star Rail characters are on their way – here’s everything we know about Topaz & Numby, including a potential banner release date!
For the first time, we’re getting a two-for-one in Honkai: Star Rail, thanks to the combined forces of Topaz and Numby!
Topaz & Numby’s Release Date in Honkai Star Rail
While Topaz & Numby have no confirmed release date in Honkai Star Rail, it’s likely that the 5-Star characters will arrive in the 1.4 update, currently scheduled for October 11, 2023.
It stands to reason that Topaz & Numby’s release date will therefore be pushed a little further out to either Phase 1 or 2 of the 1.4 update. However, this is not currently confirmed.
Are Topaz & Numby Getting a Banner in Honkai Star Rail?
Yes, as a new 5-Star drop with an official character card reveal, it is very likely that Topaz & Numby are getting their own banner in Honkai Star Rail V1.4.
The character card for Topaz & Numby make its debut on the Honkai Star Rail Twitter on August 16. Before that, we’d seen the characters leak through datamines, with no release date information available.
Who Are Topaz & Numby in Honkai Star Rail?
In Honkai Star Rail, Topaz is the Senior Manager of the Strategic Investment Department in the Interastral Peace Corporation, as well as the leader of the Special Debts Picket Team.
She is a member of the Ten Stonehearts, with her core stone being the ‘topaz of debt retrieval.’
Meanwhile, Numby is Topaz’s partner and friend, a Warp Trotter capable of sniffing out ‘riches’. It assists Topaz in her work as they travel the cosmos together, tracking down debts and liabilities.
What’s more, Topaz already appears in-game, as the face of the Trend of the Universal Market Lightcone.
