Genshin Impact 2.8 Weapon Banner Has Been Revealed

Each edition of Genshin Impact lasts 6-7 weeks due to the game’s strict updating schedule. Each game update is split into two halves, each with a banner for a different character or weapon.

The game’s weapon banner typically offers five four-star weapons and two restricted five-star weapons. With the conclusion of Itto’s Royal Oni banner, the game will soon get a fresh batch of Genshin Impact characters and weaponry.

The items featured on the first weapon banner for Genshin Impact version 2.8 have been made public through the game’s official Twitter account. 

This weapon banner won’t include any new weapons, unlike most others. The tweet states that the following things will be included in the following banner cycle:

  • Freedom-Sworn (five-star sword)
  • Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds (five-star catalyst)
  • The Alley Flash (four-star sword)
  • Favonius Lance (four-star polearm)
  • Rainslasher (four-star claymore)
  • The Widsith (four-star catalyst)
  • Mitternachts Waltz (four-star bow)

The Freedom-Sworn sword is the most suggested weapon for Kaedehara Kazuha, who will be featured on the update’s limited character banner. 

It is the ideal pick for most Anemo characters in Genshin Impact since it offers a ton of Elemental Mastery. One of the most significant supports in the game, Kazuha, may easily activate its passive, which enables the weapon’s owner to bolster the whole party even while he is absent on the battlefield.

A five-star catalyst called Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds is designed for DPS catalyst heroes like Klee, who will also appear in the next double banner. 

The weapon’s passive dramatically increases movement speed, essential for catalyst users who must continually change positions during battles. 

The secondary characteristic of the weapon is Crit Rate, making it the weapon of choice for the majority of catalyst characters that need large damage totals.

Although the banner includes two respectable five-star weapons, people are most enthusiastic about the four-star bow Mitternachts Waltz because it is the most acceptable option for Fischl, one of the game’s most well-liked support characters. 

The weapon features one of Genshin Impact’s greatest four-star passive effects, increasing attack and elemental skill damage—two crucial numbers. 

The second character banner for the update is expected to feature Fischl as the live stream event previously revealed that they will also be getting a new skin.
