The new characters in question are Tartaglia and Zhongli, who are both 5-stars, and Xinyan and Diona, both 4-stars. As for new quests, one can expect the core story to have three entire acts worth to conclude the Liyue chapters. Side quests for specific characters will also be added along with a new Reputation system that rates players for each city.
