It seems the first phase of Genshin Impact 2.5 will have only one Character Event Banner.

The first banner, Everbloom Violet, will feature Yae Miko - 5-star Electro, Catalyst character.

Along with Yae Miko, the following 4-stars characters complete the first banner:

  • Thoma - 4-star Pyro, Polearm User
  • Dionna - 4-star Cryo, Bow User
  • Fischl - 4-star Electro, Bow User.

Fischl is back after 12 banners of absence. Finally, it seems miHoYo is ready to leave behind the controversy provoked by OZ voice actor.

Thoma is the big surprise in the Banner, coming back sooner than expected as he debuted on Genshin Impact 2.2 as the only new character back then.

Dionna and Thoma in the banner could indicate that Yae Miko will benefit from the use of Shields.

The benefit of Fischl in a Yae Miko team is her ability to generate a big amount of Energy Particles for Electro Characters.

Weapon Banner

Besides the full roster of the first character banner, data miners announced the 5-star weapons joining the first Weapon Banner in Genshin Impact 2.5

The first weapon banner has one Catalyst and a Sword as the 5-star weapons feature:

  • The 5-star Catalyst Kagura's Verity, the signature weapon of Yae Miko.
  • The 5-star Sword Primordial Jade Cutter is one of the best swords in the game.

Kagura's Verity is an exciting weapon with a high ATK base and Crit. DMG as substat, however other weapons like Windsith and Lost Prayer of the Sacred Winds are good alternatives for Yae Miko

On the other hand, Primordial Jade Cutter is one of the best swords in the game. Great for DPS characters due to the high Crit. Rate substat.
