Genshin Impact 3.1 First Phase Banners
The first Sumeru banners will feature Tighnari and the fourth rerun of the Anemo Archon Venti.
Both banners will be available for 16 days, according to the new five-week schedule for the rest of the Genshin Impact 2022 Banners.
These are the two banners of the first half of Genshin Impact 3.1
- Twilight Arbiter, the Banner will feature Cyno, a 5-star Electro Polearm Character.
- Ballad in Goblets is the rerun banner of the Anemo Archon, Venti, the 5-star Anemo Bow User.
The following 4-star characters complete the Banner.
- Candace - 4-star Hydro, Polearm User
- Kuki Shinobu - 4-star Electro, Polearm User
- Sayu - 4-star Anemo, Claymore User.
The Genshin Impact 3.1 update could be called Polearm Impact, as three of 5 characters use that weapon.
Additionally, It seems we are getting all the archons in consecutive patches, Zhongli in 3.0, Venti in 3.1, Nahida in 3.2, and Raiden in 3.3.
The first Weapon Banner in Genshin Impact 3.0 will be the debut of the 5-star polearm, Staff of the Scarlet Sands, the signature weapon for Cyno.
For the second 5-star in the Banner, we will get the Elegy for the End, an excellent bow for Supports and Sub DPS characters.
Staff of Scarlet Sands
The equipping character gains extra 52% Elemental Mastery as bonus ATK. When an Elemental Skill hits opponents, the Dream of the Scarlet Sands effect will be gained for 10s: The equipping character will gain 28% of their Elemental Mastery as bonus ATK. Max 3 stacks.
Elegy for the End
Increases Elemental Mastery by 120. When the Elemental Skills or Elemental Bursts of the character wielding this weapon hit opponents, that character gains a Sigil of Remembrance. This effect can be triggered once every 0.2s and can be triggered even if said character is not on the field. When you possess 4 Sigils of Remembrance, all of them will be consumed and all nearby party members will obtain the "Millennial Movement: Farewell Song" effect for 12s. "Millennial Movement: Farewell Song" increases Elemental Mastery by 200 and increases ATK by 40%. Once this effect is triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Remembrance for 20s. Of the many effects of the "Millennial Movement," buffs of the same type will not stack.
These are the 4-star weapons that complete the Banner of the first Epitome Invocation:
- Favonius Warbow - Bow
- Lion's Roar - Sword
- Favonius Lance - Polearm
- Sacrificial Fragments - Catalyst
