Genshin Impact 2.2 banner brings Childe back, five-star weapons

Genshin Impact 2.2 has arrived with a new island to explore and a new set of banners to wish on. The first limited five-star banner for 2.2 is a rerun for Childe, but the new weapon banners have brand new five-stars to pull for. Here’s everything included in the first Genshin Impact 2.2 limited banners.

Who’s on the new Genshin Impact 2.2 banner?

The current Genshin Impact banner is Farewell of Snezhnaya featuring Tartaglia. The 11th Fatui Harbinger Childe is now the first Genshin Impact character to receive three banners. He is a Hydro vision user who equips a bow, but his Elemental Skill converts him into a polearm user. Childe is primarily a damage-dealer, but can also effectively apply Hydro as a support for teams that need the utility.

The featured four-star characters for Genshin Impactt 2.2 are Yanfei, Ningguang, and Chongyun. The trio of Liyue characters can all synergize with Childe. Yanfei’s Pyro abilities can create Vaporize reactions and Chongyun’s Cryo kit can freeze enemies in place. As for Ningguang, she can serve as a supportive DPS when Childe’s water spear is on cooldown.

What’s on the new Genshin Impact 2.2 weapon banner?

The Genshin 2.2 Epitome Invocation includes two new five-star weapons. Memory of Dust is a catalyst that increases shield strength and boosts damage up to 20% at refinement one. The boost becomes doubled if the wielder is protected by a shield.

As for the new five-star bow, the Polar Star increases damage based on how many different ways you’ve attacked your opponent. Hitting with a normal attack, charged attack, skill, and burst will each increase attack by 48% at refinement one. The Polar Star is a great match for Genshin Impact’s newest crossover character, Aloy from Horizon: Zero Dawn.
