Genshin Impact officially reveals the items that will appear on the upcoming Weapon Banner for the highly anticipated Genshin Impact Version 2.7.
When it comes to gears, Genshin impact characters can be equipped with two main types of items, namely weapons and artifact sets. Weapons play a big part in a character’s performance on the battlefield, and each weapon in the game has a unique backstory.
Genshin impact has officially confirmed that after a three-week delay, the new banners for version 2.7 will arrive on May 31. In addition, the game has already revealed the two five-star characters that will appear on the first banner: Yelan and Xiao.
Each banner cycle has its unique weapon banner that allows players different types of Genshin impact weapons. The game’s social media account has confirmed the items that will appear on the upcoming weapon banner:
- Primordial Jade Winged-Spear (five star polearm)
- Aqua Simulacra (Five Star Arch)
- Sacrifice Sword (Four Star Sword)
- Favonius Greatsword (four star claymore)
- Eye of Perception (Four Star Catalyst)
- Lithic Spear (four star polearm)
- Sacrificial Arch (Four Star Arch)
The only new weapon on this banner is the Aqua Simulacra, and it serves as the signature weapon for the new five-star character Yelan. The official Genshin impact livestream event has already revealed most of Yelan’s kit and unlike most bow users, her damage will increase with HP. The new weapon’s passive ability increases the weapon holder’s health by 16-32% based on its refinement levels, making it the perfect choice for new five-star Hydro users. The weapon also gives a significant 20-40% damage improvement when no opponents are nearby.
Since the secondary stat is Crit Rate, the Aqua Simulacra would also go well with any DPS arc character in the game. Supporting characters like Fischl, whose main job is to drop and swap her Oz, can also benefit from this weapon. The other five-star weapon, Primordial Jade Winged-Spear, is one of the strongest DPS weapons in the Genshin impact right now and it’s a great choice for any polar arm damage dealer. This polar arm is the signature weapon for the second character to appear on the upcoming double banner, Anemo user Xiao.
Aqua Simulacra will not be the only weapon that will appear in the upcoming update. The game has also confirmed the arrival of another four-star arc called Fading Twilight, which will apparently be available for free by completing a few quests. Both new weapons are quite flexible as they can be used on DPS, sub-DPS and support characters.
Genshin impact is now available on mobile, PC, PS4 and PS5. A Switch version is in development.
