Banner re-runs have recently become pretty common in the world of Genshin Impact. miHoYo's official social media account has revealed the two limited five-star characters players will be able to pull for.
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.
The live stream also confirmed the banners we're going to see in the upcoming updates. One of them will feature the fan-favourite Tartaglia, also known as Childe and the second banner character will be Hu Tao.
This will 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.
Tartaglia, better known as Childe, is one of the strongest DPS characters in the game right now and he can also be used as a sub-DPS. He's a very cool and diverse character thanks to his ability to constantly switch between melee and ranged attacks. Unlike Venti who's playstyle revolves around using his Burst and letting the DPS characters do the hard work, Childe has a much bigger learning curve.
Hu Tao has certainly become one of the fan-favorite characters in Genshin Impact. She is one of the strongest characters in the game right now and probably the strongest DPS in the game alongside Ganyu and Eula. Hu Tao is a Pyro polearm user and she is one of the most important characters in the Liyue region.
