The second phase of Genshin Impact 2.5 is less than a week away, and while we knew that Raiden Shogun and Kokomi would be getting a rerun on the character banners, who they would be accompanied by on the four star front has been shrouded in mystery. However, HoYoverse has today revealed their identities.
From March 8, both banners will allow players to pick up Bennett, Xinyan, and Kujou Sara. Everyone’s favourite secret six star was last seen on Eula’s banner back at the end of November, while Xinyan hasn’t been seen since August. Kujou Sara’s only appearance on a featured banner so far came back in Raiden Shogun’s original run in September.
By the looks of things HoYoverse is offering some solid pieces to help build teams, especially teams revolving around Raiden as well as phase one’s Yae Miko. Although Bennett is a universally-excellent character, and will work in a number of Kokomi compositions, Kujou Sara appearing on the banners is great for those looking to run an attack buffer who also operates as an electro battery.
As for the weapon banner, alongside Engulfing Lightning and Everlasting Moonglow – Raiden and Kokomi’s signature weapons respectfully – players will have the chance to snag Akuoumaru (claymore), Mouun’s Moon (bow), Lion’s Roar (sword), Favonius Lance (polearm), and Sacrificial Fragments (catalyst).

While having a new rotation of characters to pull for is exciting, we think we can all agree that the true highlight of Genshin Impact 2.5 phase two is going to be the upcoming ‘Of Drink A-Dreaming’ bartending event. Cin cin, Travellers.
