Banner re-runs have recently become pretty common in the world of Genshin Impact. A recent leak revealed that we might get the chance to pull for the Hydo Bow user - Tartaglia, also known as Childe.

Genshin Impact  updates 2.0 and 2.1 have brought much-needed fresh content after all the previous banner re-runs which kind of felt like filler updates. After numerous new characters like Ayaka, Yoimiya, Raiden Shogun and Sara, we could expect a character drought for the foreseeable future. 

A couple of days ago post from a credible Genshin Impact leaker called abc64 has leaked that we will apparently see two banner re-runs, the first cycle featuring Hu Tao and the second one will bring Childe.

Recent leaks on the Genshin_Impact_Leaks subreddit have apparently  revealed  the cropped promotional art for the upcoming update 2.2. The picture features the famous Hydro bow character - Tartaglia, better known as Childe.

This would be Childe's third banner appearance which would make him the first character to have two banner re-runs. His previous re-run was in Genshin Impac Version 1.4 which was released a couple of months ago.

Previously, another credible Genshin Impact leaker called UBatcha1 has apparently revealed that at the moment, Hu Tao's re-run is scheduled to be released after Ganyu's, but these leaks should be taken with a grain of salt. This would mean that she could be released as the second banner character of the 2.2 update which should drop around November 15.

This can actually be a good thing since, let's face it, it's not uncommon for most DPS characters to become a bit monotonous. If we exclude all the elemental reaction combos made by all of your party members, the fighting mechanics of one character are very simple
