The second phase will introduce Cyno, the General Mahamatra of the Akademia, and Kamisato Ayato, the humorous chairman of the Yashiro Commission. The weapons associated with Ayato and Cyno, the Haran Gepaku Futsu and Staff of the Scarlet Sands, will be featured in the weapons banner during this phase.
Four-Star Weapons and Leaks
While information about the four-star weapons remains undisclosed, leaks are expected to surface in the coming weeks. Intriguingly, details about every four-star character have surfaced a whole month before the release of this version.
Understanding Genshin Impact Banners
Genshin Impact offers three main types of banners: Limited Time Characters, Weapons, and Permanent banners. The distinction between the limited-time character and weapon banners may take time to be transparent. Each Genshin Impact version is divided into two stages, each encompassing a weapon banner and two limited-time character banners. The duration of each phase spans 21 days, and a patch cycle lasts for 42 days.
As Genshin Impact 4.2 draws near, fans eagerly await the unveiling of new characters and weapons through the upcoming banners. Including Furina, Baizhu, Cyno, and Kamisato Ayato, along with their respective weapons, is set to rejuvenate the gaming experience.
