Geo dominance

Genshin Impact 2.3 will see 4 Geo characters featured in character banners. Albedo and Noelle came on the first half of the patch.

In the second half, we are receiving two new Geo characters. Gorou's kit is designed to be the Cornerstone of a possible Mono Geo Team (4 geo characters).

At the same time, Arataki Itto seems to be the ideal DPS for this Dream Team, combining strong sustained DMg with enhanced Normal Attacks and powerful and long Elemental Burst.

All these Geo characters are receiving a great buff with the release of the new artifact Husk of Opulent Dreams that will provide +30% more DEF with two pieces and a big buff to Geo DMG with 4 pieces.

The only inconvenience will be the long hours in the Slumbering Court domain farming enough pieces for 4 characters.

Weapon Banner

The first Weapon Banner for Genshin Impact 2.3 was released on November 24. The Banner includes the re-run of two 5-star weapons.

Passive (R5)
Song of Broken Pines
Physical DMG
Increases the wielder’s ATK. When Normal or Charged Attacks hit opponents, the character gains a Sigil of Whispers (once every 0.3s). When you reach 4 Sigils, all will be consumed and all nearby party members will get increased Normal ATK SPD and ATK for 12s. Once this triggers, you gain no Sigils for 20s. Buffs of the same type won’t stack.
Elemental Masterya
Increases DMG by 20%. When the character triggers Elemental Reactions, they gain a Sigil of Rebellion, every 0.3s. When you reach 4 Sigils, all will be consumed and all nearby party members will get increased Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack DMG by 32% and increases ATK by 40%. Once this triggers, you gain no Sigils for 20s. Buffs of the same type won’t stack
  • Song of Broken Pines is a mighty Claymore that benefits characters' physical DMG.
    • Best for Eula, Razor.
  • Freedom-Sworn is a sword that benefits Elemental Mastery users, not very viable with the current characters.
    • Best for Kazuha, Albedo.

The Weapon banner will include the following 4-star weapons:

  • Dragon's Bane (Polearm)
  • Sacrificial Greatsword (Claymore)
  • Wine and Song (Catalyst)
  • Lion's Roar (Sword)
  • Alley Hunter (Bow)

Eula and Albedo Banner

Eula's Born of Ocean Swell and Albedo's Secretum Secretorum banners were released on November 24, 2021.

The two banners share the same 4-star characters. The chances of pulling the following 4-star characters will be increased:

  • Bennet - Pyro (Sword)
  • Noelle - Geo (Claymore)
  • Rosaria - Cryo (Polearm)

How will the new double Banner work?

Even though they will look similar, these are two different banners releasing at the same time. Besides 4-star characters, these are the other aspects they also share:

For example, if players do not get Albedo spending 50 wishes, after 40 wishes in the Eula banner, they are guaranteed to get a 5-star character.

Just make sure you wish on the correct Banner!
