As patch 1.1 is just around the corner, the next summons seem to be unveiling to the public. Recently datamined in game files, the banner of Zhongli and Tartaglia would not be the same in Genshin Impact, offering a delayed release date. What is it really, and what would these banners be?
Update 09/11: The first patch 1.1 banners have been unveiled. The dataming was right, Tartaglia will be the headliner of the “Farewell to the North!” banner. with Beidou, Diona and Ningguang. We will therefore have to wait a little longer for Zhongli.
It was the two images above that helped determine the game's next banners, and it's not for nothing. In addition to being named the same as previous summons, they feature two of the four new characters. This would therefore mean that each banner would introduce two characters, but also that they would not be available without it. It seems quite unlikely for Diona and Xinyan, which should be able to be invoked at any time. It should also be released at the same time, on November 11.
But for Zhongli and Tartaglia, outside their banner, there is little chance that a joint release date is to be expected on Genshin Impact. It is even very likely that, as for Venti and Klee, the characters are exclusive. It can therefore be expected that they will not be available at the same time. The first would appear from 1.1 and stay for 3 weeks, while the second would take the next 3 weeks.
However, if we can assume that the banners would be these, no date is available. However, it can be assumed that Tartaglia would be the first to land with his banner since he is central to the immediate story. Likewise, he is the most highlighted character on the networks, and therefore seems well on his way to being on display for 3 weeks. Following the logic of the previous banners, we can also determine which one will put Tartaglia and Zhongli forward.
- Banner of Tartaglia (11/11 to 30/11)
- Tartaglia (Child) – Headliner
- Zhongli Banner (30/11 to 23/12)
- Zhongli – Headliner
According to recent datamining, here are the next banners and their appearance dates. Nothing is therefore confirmed for the moment, but these invocations are coherent. So start saving for your draws while waiting for the next patch.
