Genshin Impact has revealed all of the characters that will be part of the first Banner of 2.2! This includes the rerun of Childe Tartaglia, a 5-star Hydro character.
The Childe Tartaglia Character Event Banner, will arrive on October 13, 2021, during the Genshin Impact 2.2 update, and will finish on November 2, 2021.
Childe "Farewell of Snezhnaya" Banner
Farewell of Snezhnaya is the first of two reruns for the upcoming Genshin Impact 2.2. This Banner will feature Childe Tartaglia, the 11th Fatui Harbinger, a 5-star Hydro bow user.
With this, chances of pulling the following 4-star characters will be increased:
- Ningguang - Geo (Catalyst)
- Yanfei - Pyro (Catalyst)
- Chongyun - Cryo (Claymore)
Snezhnaya is the region of the Cryo Archon. They are the nation of the Fatui, the strongest military force among all nations.
The Fatui are in the pursuit of all Archon Gnosis, and they are currently in possession of 4, Electro, Anemo, Geo, and Cryo.
We are yet to know what does Genshin Impact means with Farewell of Snezhnaya. Is this the last time the traveler is meeting Childe? Is Childe leaving the Fatui?
Why you should wish on this Banner
- The Hydro element is the detonator of strong reactions as vaporized and frozen.
- Childe Tartaglia is the only 5-star Hydro DPS; the other two Hydro 5 star are support characters; Mona and Kokomi.
- Genshin Impact 2.2 will release the Polar Star Bow, a custom-made weapon for Childe, making him even more potent.
- Genshin Impact 2.3 will see the light of a Geo resurgence; it might be a good idea to get the 4-star Ningguang or increase her constellations.
Reason to skip this Banner
- This is the third time Childe is featured in a Banner unless you are a new player. Many of the players wanting this character already have it.
- The same combination of 4-star characters was in Ayaka Banner: Ningguang, Yanfei, Chongyun, and they are very F2P options.
- miHoYo and Dataminers released information of exciting new characters coming in the following patches, maybe a good idea to stack on Primogems.
The Polar Star (Bow)
The Polar Star is a 5-star new Bow that will feature the Genshin IMpact 2.2 weapon Banner.
This Bow has Crit Rate as primary stats and will give benefits to single target attacks. According to the base numbers, this is a mighty weapon.
After miHoYo decided to avoid spoilers by hunting leakers and data miners. One of the biggest concerns for players was the lack of pre-farming information.
Thinking in the players, Genshin Impact released the stats of the upcoming weapons and their Ascencion Materials.
For leveling up the Pole Star, players need to farm.
- Mask of the Court of Flowing Sand Domain
- Concealed Materials from the Rifstalkers (new enemies)
- Spectral Materials from the Specters.
The second BannerBanner of Genshin Impact 2.2 will feature the rerun of Hu Tao and the release of the new Pyro character Thoma.
