miHoYo has announced the Genshin Impact 2.3 the 4-star characters joining Albedo and Eula in the first two Banners.
This is the first time Genshin Impact will feature two Character Banners at the same time. Here is everything we know.
Genshin Impact 2.3 Shadow Amidst Snowstorms will go live on November 24, 2021, at 11am server time.
For different regions, the update will arrive at the following times locally:
- November 23, 7:00 p.m. PDT
- November 23, 10:00 p.m. EST
- November 23, 3:00 a.m. GMT
Eula and Albedo Banner
Eula’s Born of Ocean Swell and Albedo’s Secretum Secretorum banners will also go live on November 24, 2021.
It is confirmed that the two banners will feature the same 4-star characters.
The chances of pulling the following 4-star characters will be increased:
- Bennet – Pyro (Sword)
- Noelle – Geo (Claymore)
- Rosaria – Cryo (Polearm)
How will the new double Banner work?
Even though they will look similar, these are two different banners releasing at the same time. Besides 4-star characters, these are the other aspects they also share:
For example, if players do not get Albedo spending 50 wishes, after 40 wishes in the Eula banner, they are guaranteed to get a 5-star character.
Just make sure you wish on the correct Banner!
The first Weapon Banner for Genshin Impact 2.3 will be released on November 24, as well. This includes the re-run of two 5-star weapons.
|5-star||Song of Broken Pines||Claymore||Physical DMG||Increases the wielder’s ATK. When Normal or Charged Attacks hit opponents, the character gains a Sigil of Whispers (once every 0.3s). When you reach 4 Sigils, all will be consumed and all nearby party members will get increased Normal ATK SPD and ATK for 12s. Once this triggers, you gain no Sigils for 20s. Buffs of the same type won’t stack.|
|5-star||Freedom-Sworn||Sword||Elemental Masterya||Increases DMG by 20%. When the character triggers Elemental Reactions, they gain a Sigil of Rebellion, every 0.3s. When you reach 4 Sigils, all will be consumed and all nearby party members will get increased Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack DMG by 32% and increases ATK by 40%. Once this triggers, you gain no Sigils for 20s. Buffs of the same type won’t stack|
- Song of Broken Pines is a mighty Claymore that benefits characters’ physical DMG.
- Freedom-Sworn is a sword that benefits Elemental Mastery users, not very viable with the current characters.
The Weapon banner will include the following 4-star weapons:
- Dragon’s Bane (Polearm)
- Sacrificial Greatsword (Claymore)
- Wine and Song (Catalyst)
- Lion’s Roar (Sword)
- Alley Hunter (Bow)
Genshin Impact 2.3 will see 4 Geo characters featured in character banners. Albedo and Noelle will come on the first half of the patch.
These two characters are receiving a great buff with the release of the new artifact Husk of Opulent Dreams that will provide +30% more DEF with two pieces and a big buff to Geo DMG with 4 pieces.
Gorou’s kit is designed to buff a possible Mono Geo Team (4 geo characters). At the same time, Arataki seems to be the ideal DPS for this Dream Team.
The third banner Genshin Impact 2.3, will arrive around December 13, 2021. we will update this article with more details of the last banner of the patch as soon we receive official information.
