Genshin Impact’s Hu Tao Banner Begins This Week

As expected and teased, the next Genshin Impact banner will involve the five-star Hu Tao. miHoYo revealed people will have a chance to acquire her starting on March 2, 2021. She’ll appear alongside three four-stars that also hail from Liyue.

Hu Tao is Pyro polearm-wielder, and she isn’t the only one on this banner. People will have an increased chance of getting the Xiangling too, who uses the same weapon and has the same element. She’s only a four-star though. The Cryo claymore-user Chongyun and Hydro sword-bearer Xingqui round out the focus units.

Hu Tao and her new banner won’t be the only upcoming additions. Her story quest, Papilio Charontis, will be added on March 2, 2021 too. You’ll need to have completed the second act of the first campaign chapter and be AR 40 to go through it. There will also be an Epitome Invocation Event Wish that includes Staff of Homa, Wolf’s Gravestone, and the new Lithic weapons.

There will also be a new Adventurers’ Guild quest. Vishaps and Where to Find Them will reward people with things like Hero’s Wit, Mora, Mystic Enhancement Ore, and Primogems. That will run March 5-12, 2021. If you’re at AR 20, you can take on the challenge. 

Genshin Impact is available for the PlayStation 4, PC, and mobile devices. It will eventually come to the Nintendo Switch. The Hu Tao banner will be available March 2-16, 2021.
