When the 3.5 update launches for Genshin Impact, a Dehya banner and Cyno rerun banner will appear. However, ahead of that, we didn’t know who would also be focus characters alongside them. Now, HoYoverse went into detail about them and the Epitome Invocation. Two familiar Mondstadt Genshin Impact characters and someone from Sumeru will also be available.
First, Dehya is a five-star Pyro character who uses claymores in Genshin Impact. Cyno is a five-star Electro unit specializing in polearms. On both of their banners, it will be easier to get the returning four-star characters Barbara, Bennett, and Collei. Barbara is a Hydro catalyst user, Bennett is a Pyro swordsman, and Collei is a Dendro archer. In terms of the story, Collei will be in Mondstadt for the Windblume festival in this update.
As for the Epitome Invocation, this one will feature two five-star weapons geared toward the focus five-star Genshin Impact characters. The Beacon of the Reed Sea is a new claymore designed with Dehya in mind. The Staff of the Scarlet Sands is a returning polearm basically made for Cyno. The focus four-star weapons this time around will be The Alley Flash sword, Alley Hunter bow, Dragon’s Bane polearm, Eye of Perception catalyst, and Sacrificial Greatsword claymore.
Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and the Dehya and Cyno banner debut is set for the launch of 3.5 on March 1, 2023. Their banners are expected to run until March 21, 2023.
