Until the time of writing, there is no information regarding the 4-stars set to be featured as part of both the Hu Tao and the Yelan rerun banners, but, as usual, the reruns will run simultaneously with a new Epitome Invocation banner, which is very likely to feature Hu Tao’s Staff of Homa and Yelan’s Aqua Simulacra as it’s main stars.


Should You Pull for Alhaitham or Save for Hu Tao?

Unless you already have Hu Tao at C1, as well as her featured weapon, we highly recommend that you pull for them instead of Alhaitham. The reason for that lies in the fact that Hu Tao is by miles the best Pyro DPS in the game, while the Staff of Homa can be considered the best weapon in the game for both her as well as more than half of the game’s Polearm wielders. With that said, to make sure you are ready for her rerun, don’t forget to check out the best Hu Tao DPS build in Genshin Impact.
