One of Genshin Impact’s latest characters is set to join the hit gacha game’s standard wish banner in an upcoming version. As part of the Genshin Impact 3.5 livestream, developer HoYoverse confirmed previous Dehya standard banner leaks, meaning she will be taking her fiery fists to the permanent banner when Genshin Impact 3.6 rolls round.
During the stream, the studio showed off Flame-Mane in her full glory, and confirmed that the Dehya banner will be in the first half of the Genshin Impact 3.5 banners. However, players hoping to pull for her while her rates are high will have to get in sooner rather than later. This is because, in the bottom left corner of the graphic (which you can check out below), it was noted that she will be shifting to the standard wish banner when the Genshin Impact 3.6 release date arrives.
The news certainly comes as a surprise to many, who just days ago were questioning a leak from ‘Keika’ surrounding the possibility of Dehya becoming the second Pyro character after Diluc to join Genshin’s permanent banner. While many of the 3.5 banner ‘leaks’ were completely debunked by today’s stream, it did confirm that we probably won’t be seeing Dehya getting her own banner again post-3.5.
Dehya’s pre-release cycle has not been smooth sailing to say the least. Touted by theorycrafters as one of, if not the weakest five star character to join the roster of Genshin Impact characters – you don’t want to see the state of the Dehya Mains Reddit forum – hardcore players looking to only pull the top characters on the Genshin Impact tier list will most likely skip her.
With that said, HoYo has shown a willingness to buff underperforming characters in the past. Zhongli at launch, for example, was a shade of the meteor-yeeting Archon we know and love today. Stay strong, Dehya enjoyers. Our time will come (we hope).
