A recent post on the Genshin_Impact_Leaks subreddit has revealed the upcoming weapon banner for the upcoming version 2.1 which should drop around September 1.

Genshin Impact  has taken the gaming industry by storm and the player base keeps growing by each day. The release of a new character is probably one of the most exciting events in the game for the majority of the community. The recent live stream has revealed pretty much all of the content that we will see in the upcoming 2.1 update. Genshin Impact version 2.1 will bring many sizeable changes including new Inazuma islands to explore.

A recent post on the Genshin_Impact_Leaks subreddit has revealed a picture featuring the upcoming banner weapons for the first cycle of 2.1. According to the post, the first banner of update 2.1 will include the following five-star weapons:

  • Grasscutter's Light
    • Weapon type: Polearm
    • Base Attack 46-608
    • Secondary stat: Energy Recharge (12-55.1)
    • Passive: Attack is increased by 28 per cent of Energy Recharge over the base 100 per cent. This bonus is capped to 80 per cent Attack. Players will gain 30 per cent Energy Recharge for 12 seconds after using an Elemental Burst
  • The Unforged
    • Weapon type: Claymore
    • Base Attack 46-608
    • Secondary stat: Attack percentage (10.8-49.6)
    • Passive: Increases shield strength by 20 per cent. Scoring hits on opponents increases ATK by 4 per cent for 8 seconds (max. 5 stacks). This effect can only occur once every 0.3 seconds. While protected by a shield this Attack buff is increased by 100 per cent.

A recent tweet by another credible Genshin Impac leaker called Dimbreath has revealed that they've been some strong buffs to Raiden Shogun during the ongoing beta phase.

Buffing her Resolve bonus will significantly increase her DPS potential. This change seems kind of weird considering that a change  made a couple of days ago hinted that she could be a support character. Shifting her power from Electro Damage to Energy Recharge could mean that Raiden Shogun will be better suited as a support character, rather than the main DPS. 

There has been additional information about her stats and we've already covered her Constellation levels which can be obtainable by rolling Baal over and over. Those can still be changed but it's pretty certain that she will be an offensive character.
