The update will see the debut of Arataki Itto and Gorou, two new Geo-type characters that will be available thanks to a new banner.

His he basic attack combo activates a stackable buff, thanks to which he can also perform a particularly powerful Charged Attack. With his Elemental Burst Arataki Itto's standard, charged and top attacks gain the Geo element, hit speed increases, while attack increases based on defense.

Gorou, on the other hand, is a 4-star character who fights with the bow. His elemental skill causes area damage and activates the War Banner effect, which offers buffs to companions that vary based on the number of Geo-type characters in the party. Elemental Burst deals Geo-type AoE damage and activates the "General's Glory" effect. This is an enhanced version of War Banner, which also generates "Crystal Collapses" that cause AoE damage.

‘Genshin Impact’ Reveals Wild Double Banners For Update 2.3


Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact has just shown off bits and pieces of Update 2.3, and they’ve done something rather unusual. The 2.3 showcase has revealed that they are doing a double re-run banner, meaning two 5 star heroes will be available in separate banners at the same time.

Here’s how this is laid out:

  • Phase 1 – Albedo (5 star) and Eula (5 star)
  • Phase 2 – Itto (5 star) and Gorou (4 star)
  • Banner

    Genshin Impact

    So, Albedo and Eula will have re-run banners going at the same time. The two banners are said to share a pity system, so if you say, wish 80 times on Eula, then switch over on Albedo, you’ll be guaranteed to get a 5 star with a 50/50 shot at him (or 100%, if you’ve already missed).

    Why is Genshin Impact doing a double banner for the first time? My guess is because the total number of heroes in the game are stacking up. So in order to make sure it isn’t ages until a re-run banner comes around, while also introducing new heroes and not adding any to the base pool, the idea will probably be to do more of these multiple re-run banners so players can see their favorite heroes circle back around more often.

    I do think that at some point they will have to add some older heroes to the base pool to expand it, but it’s been a full year and they haven’t done it yet, despite adding 14 new 5 stars to the game. Inazuma alone added a whole bunch recently, and I think the idea is that player are going to get fed up waiting say, 8 months for Venti or Zhongli or Raiden Shogun to come back around. So now we’ll start seeing double-ups.

    As for Itto and Gorou, that looks like a much more traditional banner, a new 5 star paired with a new 4 star, and both are Geo heroes. With Albedo also featured, this is a Geo-themed update all around it seems, and miHoYo just debuted a new story trailer, which continues features Itto and continues Albedo’s Dragonspine story, which you can see below:

    Anyway, fans do seem to be excited about the prospect of double banners, as I think this will make the process of re-runs a little more bearable, reducing wait time until we see heroes swing back around again. I personally won’t go for either Eula or Albedo, and will save for Itto, but it’s up to you what you want to make of the new system.

    I believe Update 2.3 arrives around November 24, and we’ll have more to talk about then.
