Hu Tao Will Return in Genshin Impact 2.2 Phase II

Genshin Impact Hu Tao banner

miHoYo has revealed information on the upcoming Hu Tao re-run banner, as well as the new weapon banner for Genshin Impact Version 2.2. After the current Childe banner ends, Hu Tao, Staff of Homa, and Elegy for the End will appear as five-stars. Both banners will run from November 2 to November 23, 2021.

While Hu Tao is the five-star for the Moment of Bloom re-run banner, Thoma is the newest character to appear in Genshin Impact. He, like Hu Tao, is a Pyro polearm user. His kit makes him more of a support character than a main DPS, though. Diona and Sayu, who also fill support roles, are the remaining two characters who will have a rate-up. The Staff of Homa and Elegy for the End are both weapons that have appeared in the past. Players will also have a higher chance of getting the event-exclusive weapons, Wavebreaker’s Fin and Mouun’s Moon.

Aside from the still-ongoing Labyrinth Warriors storyline, there are two more events that will take place in Genshin Impact Version 2.2 Phase II. Though miHoYo has teased the Hu Tao re-run banner in the past, information on the events is new. The first is Shadow of the Ancients, which is an exploration challenge that will start on November 5, 2021. The second is Dreams of Bloom, which will focus on planting flowers. Dreams of Bloom will start from November 12, 2021. Completing it will grant Flower Stand Furnishings for your Serenitea Pot.

Genshin Impact is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and mobile devices. The Hu Tao re-run banner, as well as the weapon banner featuring Staff of Homa, will run from November 2 to November 23, 2021.
