Let’s take a look at the next two banners announced in their development blog, that will bring the arrival of the long-awaited Anemo ronin along with new legendary weapons to power up your entire party.

Leaves in the Wind - Kazuha arrives in Genshin Impact

One of the most awaited banners in the history of the game, Leaves in the Wind will finally bring Kaedehara Kazuha into Genshin Impact in this brand new Event Wish, bringing a powerful option for your team packed with incredible Anemo skills that attract and explode all enemies around.

This banner will also have a huge drop-rate boost for Rosaria (Cryo), Bennett (Pyro), and Razor (Electro), three great characters for your party and that will complement Kazuha greatly in the battlefield.

Epitome Invocation - New weapons for Elemental characters

As part of Kazuha’s debut, his signature weapon the Freedom-Sworn sword will also make his appearance into the game, along with the Skyward Atlas, an excellent Catalyst charged with the power of the wind, perfect for DPS characters.

As for the Freedom-Sworn, this event-exclusive 5-star weapon is part of the "Millennial Movement" that wanders amidst the winds of Mondstadt. Its passive can increase DMG, and whenever your character triggers Elemental Reactions, they will gain Sigils of Rebellion that can be consumed to gain more DMG and ATK.

This banner will arrive with a fantastic drop boost for many powerful weapons, including:

  • The Alley Flash (Sword)
  • Wine and Song (Catalyst)
  • Alley Hunter (Bow)
  • Favonius Greatsword (Claymore)
  • Dragon's Bane (Polearm)

Bring all the Primogems you have, and start looking for them as hard as you possibly can, as both banners will be available for a limited time, from 29th June until 20th July 2021.
