The following banners will be available during the first three weeks of version 2.7:

  • Invitation to Mundane Life will feature the second rerun of Xiao, a 5-star Anemo Polearm character.
  • The Valley Orchid will feature the new character Yelan, a 5-star Hydro Bow character.

Both Banners will share the following 4-star characters:

  • Yanfei - 4-star Pyro, Catalyst User
  • Barbara - 4-star Hydro, Catalyst User
  • Noelle - 4-star Geo, Claymore User.

Barbara and Noelle are back after more than 6 banners, and Kuki and Yanfei were classmates, so it's only natural she makes the cut for Genshin Impact 2.7 as well.

Weapon Banner

The first Weapon Banner in Genshin Impact 2.7 will introduce a new weapon called: Aqua Simulacra. This is the signature sword of Kamisato Ayato.

The polearm Primordial Jade Winged-Spear will be the second weapon feature in the first weapon banner of Genshin Impact 2.7.

Passive (R5)
Aqua Simulacra
Crit. DMG
HP is increased by 32% When there are enemies near the character, the DMG increases by 40%. This effect will still be detected when the character is off-field.
Primordial Jade Winged-Spear
Crit. Rate
On hit, increases ATK by 6.0% for 6s. Max 7 stacks. This effect can only occur once every 0.3s. While in possession of the maximum possible stacks, DMG dealt is increased by 24%.

Both weapons are decent picks, and useful for a variety of characters.
