The official Genshin Impact Twitter account has revealed the items characters that will obtainable during the second part of the current Genshin Impact Update 2.3.

Another credible Genshin Impact by the name Ubatcha1 has tweeted that Itto and Gorou are set for the second cycle of update 2.3. Going by miHoYo's usual schedule of releasing new updates every six weeks, Itto and Gorou will arrive around November 22.

The addition of a new character is probably the most exciting thing a casual Genshin Impact player is looking forward to, especially in the latter stages of the game when there aren't as many quests and events to enjoy. 

The official Genshin Impact Twitter account has revealed the Weapon Banner that will appear on the second cycle. The banner will include the following Genshin impact Weapons:

  • Redhorn Stonethresher - five-star claymore
  • Skyward Harp -  five-star bow
  • Mitternachts Waltz - four-star bow
  • The Alley Flash - four-star sword
  • Sacrificial Fragments - four-star catalyst
  • Favonius Lance - four-star polearm
  • The Bell - four-star claymore

Previously a credible Genshin Impact leak  has revealed the best weapon choice for Arataki Itto. The choice was always between two weapons, Serpent Spine and Redhorn Stonethresher considering those are the only Claymores that do not provide an Attack bonus in any shape or form. Itto's damage scales with Defence which means that building Attack will have no effect on his DPS. 

The leak compares Serpent's Refinement 5 level with an R1 Redhorn because it's much easier to gather a four-star weapon, especially Serpent Spine. The Redhorn Stonethresher's R1 damage is roughly 4 per cent stronger than the Serpent Spine.
