Genshin Impact 2.1 Version’s Raiden Shogun banner is days away from coming to an end. That banner included the limited 5* Raiden Shogun alongside Kujou Sara, Xiangling, and Sucrose. But during the 2.1 Livestream, it was revealed that the second 5* to be introduced in the limited banner would be Sangonomiya Kokomi.
Genshin Impact Character Demo- Sangonomiya Kokomi:
Genshin Impact Kokomi Banner Release Date:
The banner will release on September 21, 2021, at 18:00 server time. That means it would be 3 pm PST / 6 pm EST / 5 pm BST. The banner will come to an end after 3 weeks, on October 12, 2021, at 14:59 server time. That means 11:59 am PST / 2:59 pm EST / 1:59 pm BST.
Characters to appear on the Kokomi Banner:
Although miHoYo has been cracking down on leakers, there have been a few leaks already about this banner. The banner is called “Drifting Luminescence“. As mentioned before, the limited 5-star character to appear on the banner would be Sangonomiya Kokomi. Kokomi is Watatsumi Island’s Divine Priestess, and she is primarily a supporting character. Some fans were disappointed by Kokomi’s low crit rating, which is -100 from the beginning, she does come with a lot of heals that could help parties in the later stages of the game. If you’re planning to pull on her, she would work great as a Support healer character over a DPS character. Even though some fans are dissatisfied with her negative crit rate, there is a sizable contingent of fans who don’t seem to mind and still want to summon for her.
The other characters to appear are as follows:
- Xingqui, a hydro sword-wielding character
- Beidou, an electro claymore-wielding character
- Rosaria, a cryo polearm-wielding character
All three characters are extremely good. If you’re hesitant about summoning for Kokomi, summoning for the rest of the 4 star characters would be the way to go; may it be to get them the first time or for their constellations.
About the Weapon Banner:
Every limited character banner in Genshin comes along with a limited weapon banner suited for the character. The new weapon banner would feature a new weapon suited for Kokomi called “Everlasting Moonglow“, a catalyst, and “Primordial Jade Cutter“, a sword. There would be 4-star weapons that would feature on the banner such as The Stringless.
Everlasting Moonglow is a 5-star catalyst weapon perfect for Kokomi. It has a Base ATK of 609 and a secondary stat as HP of 49.6 at level 90. The weapon, just like Kokomi, isn’t liked by most of the fans since it doesn’t serve much purpose. But Primordial Jade Cutter is a great weapon to summon for since it has a base ATK of 542 with a secondary stat of Crit Rate of 44.1% at level 90. The crit rate in this weapon is the highest compared to any weapon in the game, so if you’re summoning on weapon banner, this would be the better option of the two.
Overall, the Genshin Impact Kokomi banner does carry a lot of good characters. Even though Kokomi is controversial, this rotation of abyss is heavily revolved around her due to the corrosion added so she would be a great character to summon for. In the end, it’s up to the traveler to decide who they want to bring along to their adventure. Good luck with summoning!
