Genshin Impact brings back Childe’s character banner
Genshin Impact announced in the 2.2 live stream Childe’s character banner would be getting another rerun. Since Childe is one of the only characters in the game with both a melee and ranged fighting stance, this is a good opportunity for travellers to add him to their team roster. Along with him, the Farewell of Snezhnaya banner will also see a drop rate increase for characters like Chongyun, Ningguang and Yanfei.
After version 2.2 update (13th Oct) – 2nd November
