Upcoming Phase 1 banners in Genshin Impact

We could see that miHoYo is introducing two banners at the same time in the next update. Just like in the 2.3 update, we will see the same mechanics where the pity will be shared equally on both the banners.

Therefore, if you change your mind while pulling for one character, you can still pull for another with no worries. We will see Ningguang and Chongyun as featured characters, along with Yun Jin, on both banners. Both Chongyun and Ningguang are great four-star units and can be an immense help to your team.

Chongyun is a great support character and if you team him up with Xingqiu and Diluc, you will see his true potential. He is a claymore user and can constantly apply Cryo thanks to his elemental skill. Furthermore, with the help of Shenhe, he might be able to deal more damage because of her kit.

When it comes to the best four-star main damage dealer, Ningguang still holds that title with no issues. She is a great main damage dealer and after unlocking a few of her constellations, she can eliminate opponents in seconds. Not to mention, miHoYo will also introduce her outfit skin in the next update.

Therefore, you can unlock it for free by taking part in the upcoming events. All three are great four-star characters and you won’t regret investing in the 2.4 banners. However, if you are not interested in Xiao and Shenhe, it would be best to ignore these banners. Phase 2 will introduce Ganyu and Zhongli’s banners. They are the best main damage dealer and support character in the entire game, respectively.
