What is the current Genshin Impact banner?

Neuvillette's rerun banner in Genshin Impact

The current Genshin Impact banner is ‘Decree of the Deeps,’ which features the rerun of 5-star Hydro character Neuvillette and was released on April 2, 2024. At the same time, you can also grab a copy of Kaedehara Kazuha during his rerun in the ‘Leaves in the Wind‘ banner. 

Travelers will be able to obtain Neuvillette and Kaedehara Kazuha by pulling on the current banners, as well as the following 4-stars: 

  • Barbara (Hydro, Catalyst) 
  • Xingqiu (Hydro, Sword)
  • Yanfei (Pyro, Catalyst)

When does the current Genshin Impact banner end?

The current banners will end on April 23, 2024, which gives Travelers plenty of time to save up Primogems and spend them on their banners.

We’ll update this section should HoYoverse extend this date further.
