Genshin Impact 4.1: Countdown to Hu Tao's banner
The maintenance for the Genshin Impact 4.1 update is scheduled to start on September 27, 2023, at 6:00 am (UTC+8). It is expected to last five hours, so players can expect the new patch to drop by 11:00 am (UTC+8), which is when Hu Tao's banner will also be available.
Travelers can refer to the universal countdown below to check out the time left until the character's arrival.
It should be noted that Neuvillette and Hu Tao's banners will drop at the same time.
Xingqiu and the other two featured 4-star units
Here is a list of all the 4-star characters that will receive a major drop-rate boost in the first phase of the 4.1 Genshin Impact update:
- Xingqiu (Hydro - Sword)
- Fischl (Electro - Bow)
- Diona (Cryo - Bow)
These are all extremely capable characters, especially Fischl and Xingqiu, who are two of the best sub-DPS units in the game. Meanwhile, Diona would be an amazing support and battery character in many Cryo teams.
Tome of the Eternal Flow and other featured weapons on the Epitome Invocation
Here is a list of all the weapons that will be featured on the Epitome Invocation banner:
- Tome of the Eternal Flow (5-star Catalyst)
- Staff of Homa (5-star Polearm)
- The Dockhand's Assistant (4-star Sword)
- Portable Power Saw (4-star Claymore)
- Mitternachts Waltz (4-star Bow)
- Favonius Lance (4-star Polearm)
- Favonius Codex (4-star Catalyst)
The banner will feature a couple of new limited weapons, such as the Tome of the Eternal Flow, The Dockhand's Assistant, and the Portable Power Saw. The Staff of Homa, one of the best Polearms in Genshin Impact, will also return. In addition, Fischl's signature Bow, Mitternachts Waltz, will be available for a limited period of time.
Favonius Codex and Favonius Lance are the only two permanent weapons on the banner. Luckily, they are really good F2P options.
