This banner will introduce five playable units, including the highly anticipated Cryo user, Wriothesley, and the returning Anemo Archon, Venti, both of whom will be five-star characters.

Meet Wriothesley: The Cryo Catalyst User

One of the most significant highlights of the upcoming banner is the introduction of Wriothesley, who marks the game’s first Cryo catalyst user. What sets Wriothesley apart is his ability to apply the Cryo element through his Normal Attacks. This unique skill makes him an ideal choice for team compositions that focus on the Frozen or Melt reactions.

Interestingly, despite wielding a catalyst typically associated with ranged combat mages, gameplay leaks have shown that Wriothesley leans towards close combat, similar to the Anemo DPS character Shikanoin Heizou. Speculation abounds that Wriothesley might eventually join the Standard Banner once version 4.1 concludes, similar to past characters. In terms of gameplay, Wriothesley is expected to shine as a new DPS character, promising a fresh dynamic to team compositions.

Venti’s Return: A Powerful Support Character

Returning to the limelight in the second banner is Venti, a character initially introduced in the game’s first update back in 2020. Despite the passage of time and the introduction of newer characters, Venti remains a stalwart support character in Genshin Impact. His Wind’s Grand Ode skill continues to be invaluable, particularly when dealing with larger groups of enemies.

While some players may debate the merits of Venti compared to other support characters like Kazuha, his utility in crowd control and Elemental Burst remains undeniable. For those looking to dominate in encounters involving numerous foes, Venti’s presence on the team can make a significant difference.

Limited Banner Dynamics

As is customary in Genshin Impact updates, version 4.1 will follow a two-phase structure, with each phase featuring a set of limited characters available for wishes. These characters can be of two rarities: five-star and four-star. It’s important to note that while five-star characters are highly coveted for their power, they are also challenging to obtain due to the 90-wish pity system, which guarantees a five-star character within 90 wishes. However, there’s a 50% chance that this five-star character might come from the Standard Banner, adding an element of unpredictability.

Genshin Impact 4.1 Banners Overview

The Genshin Impact 4.1 Special Program is scheduled for September 15th, during which all event banners for the upcoming patch will be unveiled. This includes both rerun characters and new weapons. Leaks circulating suggest that Genshin Impact 4.1 banners will introduce two fresh playable characters hailing from the Nation of Justice, Fontaine: Neuvillette and Wriothesley, alongside two character reruns.

The initial phase of the Genshin Impact 4.1 update is set to commence on September 27, 2023, and will run for a duration of 21 days, equivalent to three weeks. The subsequent phase of the 4.1 update is scheduled to run from October 18, 2023, through November 8, 2023. Although there have been speculations regarding the composition of Phase 1 and Phase 2 banners, with expectations of the Wriothesley banner and a Venti rerun in the latter, and the Neuvillette banner alongside a Hu Tao rerun in Phase 1, the precise sequence and the rerun characters have not been officially confirmed yet. Further details are anticipated during the Genshin Impact 4.1 livestream.
