What is the Genshin Impact next banner?

The Genshin Impact next banner will feature Hu Tao and Yelan in the upcoming banner for 3.4 phase two, available from February 7. The featured four-star characters for this upcoming banner includes Xingqiu, Ningguang, and Beidou.

This information was revealed during the Special Program Genshin Impact 3.4 livestream that revealed all Genshin Impact 3.4 banners characters for phase one and phase two.

Here is the full list for the Genshin Impact next banner characters:

  • Hu Tao (Pyro five-star – rerun)
  • Yelan (Hydro five-star – rerun)
  • Xingqiu (Hydro four-star – rerun)
  • Ningguang (Geo four-star – rerun)
  • Beidou (Electro four-star – rerun)

Here is the full list for the Genshin Impact next banner weapons:

  • Staff of Homa (Hu Tao’s signature weapon – five-star polearm)
  • Aqua Simulacra (Yelan’s signature weapon – five-star bow)
  • Dragon’s Bane (four-star polearm)
  • Favonius Sword (four-star sword)
  • Lithic Blade (four-star claymore)
  • Favonius Codex (four-star catalyst)
  • Rust (four-star bow)

Hu Tao is a fan-favourite Pyro DPS character, prized for their unique playstyle and incredibly powerful abilities. Given that Hu Tao has been out of rotation for a very long time, she certainly a character worth picking up. Similarly, Yelan is one of the most popular and powerful off-field DPS characters, specialising in Hydro damage and application through her Elemental Burst. If you don’t have Yelan already, then she’ll work in almost any team to dramatically improve your damage output.

The featured four-star characters in the next Genshin Impact banner are similarly incredible. Firstly, Xingqiu is considered a four-star version of Yelan, boasting superb off-field Hydro damage through his Elemental Burst and a little extra defence through his Elemental Skill. Getting Xingqiu and his Constellations make the next Genshin Impact banner a great line-up already. However, the 3.4 phase two banner also includes Beidou, a popular Electro sub-DPS character who fits in many team compositions. Lastly, while Ningguang is certainly not as popular or flexible, she is a fun four-star Geo DPS if you’re getting started or want to build a Geo team.

Alongside these characters will be several powerful weapons available in the next Genshin Impact banner. The Staff of Homa and Aqua Simulacra, Hu Tao and Yelan’s signature weapons respectively, are among the best weapons in the entire game. What’s more, these weapons are highly flexible, meaning they can be used on several characters, not just Hu Tao and Yelan. If you’ve been waiting for a weapon banner to spend your Primogems on, the Genshin Impact next banner is definitely the one to go for.

The four-star weapons are also strong options, with the Favonius weapons always being popular options for their versatility. Likewise, the Dragon’s Bane spear is great for boosting Elemental Mastery, useful in Raiden Shogun or Yaoyao hyperbloom builds among others.

That’s everything you need to know about the Genshin Impact next banner. Besides Wishing on new characters in the current and upcoming banner, it’s also worth staying up to date on the best builds for characters, such as a strong Genshin Impact Alhaitham build or Genshin Impact Ayato build, so you can put your new characters to good use.
