Genshin Impact officially reveals the four-star characters that will join Yelan and Xiao on the first banner cycle for Genshin Impact version 2.7.
Genshin impact updates are divided into two parts with their unique banners featuring one or two five star and three four star characters. the continuous Genshin impact 2.6 banner has brought back the cryo sword user Ayaka and three popular four-star characters.
To obtain the limited banner characters, players must spend their Primogems or Intertwined Fates on the banner. After a delay of three weeks, Genshin impact will finally introduce the long-awaited version 2.7 and its two banners.
The official Genshin impact Version 2.7 livestream event has already revealed that the two limited five-star characters, Yelan and Xiao, will arrive in the first banner cycle of the update. The Genshin impact Twitter account has finally confirmed the three four-star characters that will appear on the upcoming double banner alongside Yelan and Xiao. The first banner cycle will contain the following characters:
- Yelan – five star Hydro arc character.
- Xiao – five star Anemo polearm character.
- Yanfei – Four Star Pyro Catalyst Character.
- Barbara – Four Star Hydro Catalyst Character.
- Noelle – four star Geo claymore character.
Much of the community doesn’t seem too happy with the four-star lineup on the banner, and multiple replies in the comment section claim they’ll most likely skip this banner and save their Primogems for future characters. Constellation levels are a big part of a character’s gear, and they can be leveled up by acquiring by drawing multiple copies of a specific character. Many players claim that they’ve already maxed out the constellation levels for both Barbara and Noelle, meaning they don’t need another copy of those characters.
However, the three four-star characters can be quite a complement to most team compositions. Barbara and Noelle are two very strong Genshin impact healers, especially if players have managed to get them to their C6 level. Yanfei is a Pyro DPS character that can be useful to players who have no Pyro damage in their party lineup.
Many fans were surprised when developer HoYoverse announced that Anemo user Xiao will get another re-run as he has already had a re-run in January during Genshin impact Version 2.4. Yelan is the only new character on this banner and she will probably be the main reason for players to spend their Primogems on it. Her role in a squad composition is still unknown, but according to the livestream event, she will be a decent sub-DPS or supporting character.
Genshin impact is now available on mobile, PC, PS4 and PS5. A Switch version is in development.
