Both banners will be available for 21 days. If you are using wishes to get Yao Yao, we remind you she will be available for Free in the Fortuitous Invitation Event.

These are the two banners of the first half of Genshin Impact 3.4

  • Caution in Confidence, the Banner will feature Alhaitham, a 5-star Dendro Sword Character.
  • Invitation to Mundane Life is the rerun banner of Xiao, a 5-star Anemo Polearm User.

The following 4-star characters complete the Banner.

  • Yaoyao - 4-star Dendro, Polearm user who is debuting in these two banners.
  • Yun Jin - 4-star Geo, Polearm user.
  • Xinyan - 4-star Pyro Claymore user.

Yaoyao will be the first Dendro healer, so we can expect changes in how players use the element now. At the same time, Alhaitham is an excellent DPS with a lot of mobility.

Weapon Banner

The first Weapon Banner in Genshin Impact 3.4 will debut the 5-star sword, Light of Foliar Sanction, the signature weapon for Alhaitham.
