Since the 2.0 update, many players have been drawn to Genshin Impact with the release of Inazuma. Furthermore, all the Inazuma characters have unique designs that make users want to invest in them more. Not to mention, the Raiden Shogun’s banner has been a huge success for miHoYo in the 2.1 update.

It was not too surprising as she is the Electro Archon and also played an important part in the Archon quests. However, many players are having a debate on whether Sangonomiya Kokomi’s banner will be able to surpass her. Here are the major things that you should consider before skipping on her banner.

Upcoming five-star character Sangonomiya Kokomi in Genshin Impact

Sangonomiya Kokomi is an upcoming five-star character and belongs to the Hydro element. Many players thought she could be a substantial addition as there are very few characters with Hydro vision in the game. However, after her kit was released, all these assumptions led to players’ disappointment for having huge expectations from her.

Kokomi will play the role of a healer, which is the most neglected role in the community. Moreover, miHoYo is trying its best to promote the character by making healers more useful in the recent floors of the Spiral Abyss.

Should you skip the upcoming Sangonomiya Kokomi’s banner?

Furthermore, unlike many healers, it looks like you will have to put her on the field to get the most out of her during her Elemental Burst. Hence, it feels like Kokomi has very little to offer the team.

She would be good at applying Hydro status to enemies, healing, and providing additional buffs. Being a gacha game, low spenders have to think a lot before spending on any new banner. Thus, if you are in a state where you don’t need healers in your team, then you probably should skip her.

Most importantly, if you are confused just because of the current state of the Spiral Abyss, then you could rest assured as miHoYo will change the Abyss soon. We have seen miHoYo making changes to promote new characters as the same happened with Eula and Kazuha. Regardless, the four-star characters that will be featured in her banner could change a lot of things.

Kokomi’s banner will have Rosaria, Xingqiu, and Beidou as featured characters. All three are great four-star characters and could be a significant addition to have on your team. Thus, it would be best to stop rolling on her banner after getting the character you desire. However, if you are a fan of Kokomi’s unique character design and personality, then you should definitely pull for her.
