Klee is probably one of the most popular characters in Genshin Impact and players and it seems like that we'll finally have the option to get her again as the first character of patch 1.6 alongside three other four-star characters.

Genshin Impact update 1.6 could is set to be released around June 6 and we already know that the first banner will bring back one of the fan-favourite characters - Klee.

One of the most frequently asked questions is, who will be the four-star characters joining Zhongli on the banner. Considering that he's become one of the fan-favourite characters, we could expect a slightly weaker four-star lineup. Having a character on a banner will significantly increase his drop rate for its duration.

Klee has always been one of the fan-favourite characters in the game and her first banner appearance still holds the record in terms of sales. Update 1.6 could become one of the biggest updates in the game considering that previous leaks already hinted that we might see the new region Inazuma introduced to the game.

The other five-star character to join Klee will officially be Kazuha. Even though the update seems pretty stacked, many fans are still a bit frustrated because the majority will probably have to choose between Klee and Kazuha considering that they will most likely have the Primogems to pull for just one of the characters.

As for the prediction, there are four rules by which four-star characters are appearing on the banner:

  • First of all, the banner cannot include the starting characters Amber, Keaya or Lisa
  • Characters cannot appear two patches in a row
  • There has to be at least one four-star character that uses the same talent ascension books as the main five-star
  • Four-star characters usually don't share the same elements

According to the third rule, Sucrose is pretty much a lock for this banner since out of all the characters that use the same talent book, she has skipped the most. The two other characters are much harder to predict but these are our top candidates for that role: Razor, Chongyun, Fischl, and Barbara. Out of those four characters, we expect Fischl and Barbara to make the final cut since miHoYo tends to avoid putting the other two guys on a banner if they don't have to.

This means that the Klee banner should include the following characters: 

  • Klee
  • Sucrose
  • Fischl
  • Barbara
