The first banner will be Acheron and Luocha. Their signature Light Cones will also be available for a limited time. The 4-stars you’ll have a higher chance of getting will be Pela, Dan Heng, and Gallagher. In the second phase, Aventurine will debut and Jingliu will have her first re-run. The 4-stars that’ll be on rate-up will be Luka, Serval, and Lynx.

HoYoVerse has already revealed the Paths of the new Honkai: Star Rail 2.1 characters on Twitter (X). Acheron will be a 5-star Lightning Nihility character. She specializes in debuffing the enemy, breaking their Toughness, and dealing massive damage. Aventurine will be a 5-star Imaginary Preservation unit. Like other Preservation units, he can reduce the amount of damage your party takes. However, he is also able to deal damage with his Ultimate based off his DEF, as well as buff an ally. Finally, Gallagher is the embodiment of the “I’m a healer, but…” meme, as his kit focuses a bit more on attacking the enemy than simply healing and sustaining.

Honkai: Star Rail is readily available for the PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. Version 2.1 will go live on March 27, 2024.
