Some have been actively avoiding spoilers and leaks, so they can be surprised by version 2.2. This article will only cover what miHoYo has officially revealed. Hence, there won't be any significant spoilers.

Genshin Impact 2.2 banner schedule

Travelers, stock up on weapons and characters in the event wish to make your party stronger in combat!

During the event, the event-exclusive 5-star character "Childe" Tartaglia (Hydro) will receive a huge drop-rate boost!

9:00 AM · Oct 10, 2021

There are two character banners for Travelers to keep in mind, both of which are reruns. The first one is Childe's banner, which takes place on 13 October 2021. The second one is Hu Tao's banner which takes place on 2 November 2021.

Players looking to summon Thoma should remember the second date, as that's when he will be available (as a 4-star Pyro Polearm user). Chongyun, Ningguang, and Yanfei have been revealed to be the 4-star characters on Childe's rerun banner in Genshin Impact 2.2.

Genshin Impact 2.2's maintenance officially begins on 13 October 2021, at 6.00 (UTC+8). miHoYo states that it should take approximately five hours for maintenance to finish. As usual, it is subject to change depending on the servers.

Players must convert that time to their respective timezones to know when they can't log into Genshin Impact.

Primogems compensation

miHoYo promises players a base compensation of 300 Primogems, regardless of maintenance duration. They state that there's a base value of 60 Primogems per hour during the maintenance period. As it's expected to last for five hours, that's where the base value of 300 Primogems originates from.

If it lasts longer than five hours, then players should expect 60 Primogems every additional hour. This compensation is only awarded to those who are Adventure Rank 5 or higher before maintenance begins.

miHoYo states that the rewards will come in via in-game mail. It may take up to five hours after the update is finished for players to receive it.
