Current Genshin Impact banner
There are currently two Genshin Impact banners active. The first is called The Transcendent One Returns, featuring the newly-released Shenhe.
In it, you can get the new Cryo Polearm who thrives at buffing up her fellow Cryo users, as well as rate-ups on Yun Jin — also new in Version 2.4 — and a handful of other Liyue characters.
- Chongyun (Cryo)
- Ningguang (Geo)
- Yun Jin (Geo)
The second is the Invitation to Mundane Life banner featuring Xiao. It is the adeptus’ first re-run since his limited release back near Genshin Impact’s launch. The Anemo Polearm also features the same rate-up characters — Yun Jin, Chongyun, and Ningguang.
When does the current Genshin Impact banner end?
Both the Shenhe and Xiao re-run banners in Genshin Impact launched on the same day as Genshin Impact update 2.4 — January 5, 2022 — and will be active until January 26, 2022.
You’ll have three weeks to roll for the five-stars before they get replaced by the Ganyu and Zhongli re-runs for the second half of Version 2.4.
Current Genshin Impact weapon banner
The current Genshin Impact weapon banner is Epitome Invocation. This banner includes the following weapon rate-ups:
- Calamity Queller (Polearm)
- Primordial Jade Winged-Spear (Polearm)
- Favonius Warbow (Bow)
- Favonius Greatsword (Claymore)
- Lithic Spear (Polearm)
- The Flute (Sword)
- The Widsith (Catalyst)
The current Genshin Impact weapon banner will end on January 26, 2022 — the same as the first rotation of update 2.4 banners.

Both are incredibly strong characters, listed among some of the best in Genshin Impact. Between Ganyu’s best-in-class DPS alongside Zhongli’s impressive damage-blocking capabilities, they are also a strong duo in unison. Expected of Liyue’s adepti, really.
Both banners will feature the same four-star rate-up characters:
- Beidou (Electro)
- Xingqiu (Hydro)
- Yanfei (Pyro)
Those re-runs are set to last until the end of Genshin Impact’s Version 2.4 update, which is set to wrap up in late-February.
