We already know that both the Alhaitham banner and Xiao rerun banner in Genshin Impact would include the new four-star unit Yaoyao. However, HoYoVerse just confirmed the other two characters who will be focus units on it. When both appear on January 18, 2023, people will also have increased chances of getting Xinyan and Yunjin.
As usual, people will be able to pick from one of two character banners when Wednesday comes. Regardless of whether they choose the five-star Dendro swordsman Alhaitham or the five-star Anemo polearm-wielder Xiao, the banner will feature the four-stars Xinyan, Yaoyao, and Yunjin. Xinyan is a Pyro claymore-wielder. Yaoyao is a Dendro polearm-user. Yunjin is a Geo polearm-bearer. All three four-stars hail from Liyue, which is celebrating its annual Lantern Rite.
The Epitome Invocation weapons for the first half of the update also showed up in the announcement. The five-star sword meant for Alhaitham is the Light of Foliar Incision and available on the banner. So is the Primordial Jade Winged Spear, a five-star polearm with Xiao in mind. People will also have a higher chance of getting the four-star Flute sword, Lithic Spear, Rainslasher claymore, Sacrificial Bow, and Widsith catalyst weapons.
Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and the Alhaitham and Xiao banners will appear on January 18, 2023. That is the day the 3.4 update will go live for the game.
