Version 2.4 Banners

Genshin Impact’s version 2.4 will feature not only the debut of Shenhe and Yun Jin, but also three long-awaited reruns featuring Xiao, Ganyu, and Zhongli. According to the Special Program, Shene’s banner will run simultaneously with the Xiao rerun and both banners will feature Yun Jin among its 4-stars. The second wave of banners, on the other hand, will feature both the Zhongli and the Ganyu reruns.

With that said, version 2.3 is looking to be one of the game’s best banner wise, as Zhongli is its best Geo support, while Xiao and Ganyu at both on the shortlist for the game’s best main DPS position, with the latter currently holding the top spot together with Pyro DPS Hu Tao.
