Barbara, Yanfei, and Noelle are on the Genshin Impact Yelan and Xiao Banners

Barbara, Diona, and Noelle are on the Genshin Impact Yelan and Xiao Banners

Now that the Yelan banner and Xiao rerun banner are about to appear in Genshin Impact, HoYoVerse revealed details regarding other units on them and exact dates. As is common for banners running at the same time, they each feature the same three four-star units as additional featured characters. In this instance, Barbara, Yanfei, and Noelle will also appear at a higher rate. After the banners appear on May 31, 2022, they’ll run until June 21, 2022.

Yelan is a five-star Hydro archer in Genshin Impact. She’s new to the game. However, she was teased ahead of her debut via Archon Quest appearances. Xiao is a five-star Anemo polearm user. Both hail from the Liyue region.

As for the four-stars, they each come from different elements than the five-stars. Barbara is a Hydro character who uses catalysts. She’s also a healer. Noelle is a claymore-bearer who can put up shields and heal the party. Yanfei is a Pyro catalyst wielder with AOE fire attacks.

The new Epitome Invocation information also appeared. The five-star Aqua Simulacra bow will show up for the first time. This is considered to be Yelan’s signature bow. There will also be the Primordial Jade Winged-Spear, which is a five-star polearm that could work for Xiao. The featured four-star weapons on this banner are the Eye of Perception, Favonius Greatsword, Lithic Spear, Sacrificial Bow, and Sacrificial Sword.

We also know who will appear after these two banners end. Once they expire, an Itto rerun banner will appear. When it does, it will also mark the debut of the new four-star unit Shinobu.

Genshin Impact is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and mobile devices. The Nintendo Switch version is in development. The Yelan banner and Xiao rerun banner will appear when the Genshin Impact 2.7 update launches on May 31, 2022. People will have until June 21, 2022 to get them. There’s also a Yelan web-event running now.
