Genshin Impact is gearing up to release another new 5-star hero this coming week, although this time around Kokomi won’t be bringing any new 4-stars with her.
There’s an idea that Kokomi probably won’t perform as well as previous new 5-star ones like Ayaka and Baal because she’s a healer rather than DPS, and miHoYo seems to recognize that, which is why they stacked her card with it. some of the top 4 stars in the game.
Genshin Impact will have the following three 4 stars attached to the Kokomi banner as having their prices up for the duration of the event:
- Xinqiu (Hydro / Sword)
- Rosaria (Cryo / Polearm)
- Beidou (Electro / Claymore)
Xinqiu in particular is one of the most popular team members in the game given the value he presents even when he’s not on the pitch. Rosaria is a powerful new 4-star that was introduced not too long ago, which means a lot of people haven’t had a chance to trick her multiple times to unlock more pieces of her constellation yet. Beidou was recently given away for free, so F2P players can spend primogems to get extra copies of her and unlock more of her powers.
We’ve also heard about the 5-star weapon that will be showcased alongside Kokomi’s Everlasting Moonglow catalyst, which will be the Primordial Jade Cutter, a 5-star weapon from the Xiao era that would actually be pretty awesome on Xinqiu, if you will. manage to land one.
Kokomi’s banner will debut in just two days on Tuesday September 21, 2021. After that we will probably have another banner with a new 5 star, maybe Yae Miko paired with a missing 4 star Inazuma like Thoma or Gorou. After that, we’re supposed to start doing reruns again.
So, this will likely be a less popular banner than the others we’ve seen this patch. Partly because of Kokomi being a healer, but also because I guess a bunch of people spent all of their resources trying to shoot Baal the last time around. We’ll see how it goes, but if you go with Kokomi, at least you’ve got some solid 4 stars that you can land as back-ups.
