Genshin Impact update 1.1 adds 3 new banners, Farewell of Snezhnaya (Character Banner – Childe), Epitome Invocation (Weapon Banner) and Wanderlust Invocation (Standard Banner).

Farewell of Snezhnaya

  1. New Characters:
    – 5-Star Childe (Hydro Bow)
    – 4-Star Diona (Cryo Bow)
  2. Rate Up:
    – 5-Star Childe
    – 4-Star Diona
    – 4-Star Ningguang
    – 4-Star Beidou

You may want to give this banner a pass. Unlike with Xingqiu from the Klee Banner which had a passive good enough alone to recommend rolling for. This banner will depend more on your own preference.

Here’s a few reasons why you may consider rolling:

  1. You are running a Cryo + Hydro based freeze team.
  2. You need another healer for Spiral Abyss. A welcome alternative to the limited number of healers currently available.

Epitome Invocation

  1. New Weapon:
    – 5-star Memory of Dust (Catalyst)
  2. Rate Up:
    – 5-star Memory of Dust (Catalyst)
    – 5-star Skyward Harp (Bow)
    – 4-Star Rust (Bow)
    – 4-Star Eye of Perception (Catalyst)
    – 4-Star Favonius Lance (Polearm)
    – 4-Star Rainslasher (Claymore)
    – 4-Star The Flute (The Flute)

Skyward Harp is a top tier DPS bow with a secondary CRIT Rate stat. On the same note Rust is a very good 4-Star alternative.

Had they have included The Stringless (great for support) bow in the rate up this would have been a very good weapon banner for bow users.

Wanderlust Invocation

  1. Standard Banner (no rate up)
  2. Available 5-Star Characters include:
    – Keqing
    – Mona
    – Qiqi
    – Diluc
    – Jean
  3. Available 5-Star Weapons include:
    – Skyward Harp
    – Skyward Atlas
    – Skyward Spine
    – Skyward Pride
    – Aquila Favonia
    – Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds
    – Primordial Jade Winged-Spear
    – Wolf’s Gravestone
    – Skyward Blade

Standard banner pity does not guarantee a character.
