Leaks for Genshin Impact are not as common as before, and many fake leaks have started to appear. But sometimes, we do get some reliable information, like what we have for you today. Recent data mines have revealed the composition of both the Kokomi banner as well as the new Weapon banner.

The game recently had a few smaller updates, and it seems that thanks to them, data miners managed to find some new placeholders for future updates like the upcoming Sayu and Thoma Hangout events, as well as images showing the new banners.

Here’s the Kokomi banner

The banner will feature the new 5-star character Sangonomiya Kokomi, the newest Hydro Catalyst healer of the game, who will be accompanied by the rate up 4-stars Xingqiu, Beidou and Rosaria.

Kokomi is a divisive character since she is forced into the support role. Her attacks and skills cannot deal Critical damage, but she gets more healing boosts in exchange for that. She’s likely going to be one of the strongest (if not THE outright strongest) characters in the game in terms of pure healing.

Alongside her banner, the Weapon Banner was also leaked. Her signature weapon, the Everlasting Moonglow, will also be added to the game.

Alongside the new catalyst, the banner will have the return of one of the best swords of the game, the Primordial Jade Cutter. If you have Ayaka, Keqing or any other sword user, you may be interested in getting this weapon.

The rate-up 4-stars for the Weapon banner are The Stringless, The Flute, Favonius Codex, Favonius Greatsword and Dragon’s Bane.

Alongside her banner, Kokomi will also receive her character quest when she’s out, which will help out with the content draught before the 1 year Anniversary event, the Moonchase Festival.
