The Xiao banner rerun will soon be available in the Genshin Impact 2.4 update, so find out when you can unlock the Anemo polearm user and which 4-star characters will be joining him.

The Xiao banner rerun will be coming to Genshin Impact sooner than expected, which is great news for travelers that have yet to unlock him. Xiao is a 5-star polearm character who uses Anemo abilities to sweep his foes off their feet, sending them hurtling into the sky and plunging them into the ground below. 

Xiao is one of the best characters in Genshin Impact, particularly for those looking for a great DPS unit with decent mobility. As an Adeptus and a member of the five foremost Yakshas, Xiao is familiar with Teyvat’s bloodthirsty enemies. 


Originally, Xiao was available in the game’s Version 1.3 update, which introduced the Invitation to Mundane Life event wish. However, this godly character will now be making his much-needed return, so here’s everything you need to know ahead of his rerelease.

Xiao’s banner rerun will release in the 2.4 update on January 25, 2022. This means the 5-star Geo user will release alongside Shenhe and Yun Jin – the two latest characters to join Genshin Impact’s ever-growing roster.

The upcoming Xiao banner rerun will mark the second time the 5-star Anemo character has been available in the game, so if you have yet to unlock him, then you’ll want to begin saving Primogems for his 2.4 return.
