Genshin Impact launched, and the second massive update on its way already!

1.3 Upcoming Banner | Xiao | Keqing

During the 1.3 Live Stream, it was revealed the two Banners that will be coming with the new update. The first one coming Feb. 3 is Xiao! The Banner is called Invitation to a Mundane Life.

The second Banner Dance of Lanterns will be Keqing, coming on Feb. 17! We are unsure if Keqing will be the main face of the Banner, but it sure looks that way.

You might have noticed that the Xiao Banner and Keqing Banner is only over two weeks each. Keqing Banner ends on March. 3, which still leaves two weeks left of 1.3. It's rumored that Hu Tao is coming with the third Banner that begins on March. 3. On the Live Stream is said that Hu Tao, is still in testing and development; however, it makes sense to have a third Banner coming!

If you're interested in the skills and talents of Xiao and Hu Tao, look no further.

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.

  1. So how current, or I should ask, where did the rumour come form that Mona will be the January 16th – February 5th banner? I really wanna roll her and saving up (which I already have for 1.2 in hopes of getting her or that update’s banner character instead) for it now will basically almost guarantee me getting her and I don’t wanna potentially miss Ganyu on false hope since I’d rather Mona.

    1. It came before the 1.1 update went live when the first leaks were starting to appear for 1.1. In all honesty, I wouldn’t put too much hope into it, as the rest of the leaks we had up didn’t come true. We only have that rumour up because it’s a rumour.

      I honestly wouldn’t hold out for a Mona banner to come on that date. I think Mona as a 5 Star character will come eventually as all 5 Star characters will. I would recommend attempting to get Ganyu and then save up for a Mona banner to appear.

      1. “Well, apart from the Keqing banner, which actually came early and included Mona.”
        Uhm… what Keqing banner??

        1. You’re right, actually. I think I lost my mind. I’ve been seeing so many leaks over the past months, I was adamant there was a Keqing Banner.

  2. If any of this information was correct, you should really not be mentioning their name. Let alone putting their user id. Cover it. Least you can do so they don’t get sued by mihoyo.

    1. That is not how leaked information works. The user in question talks about leaked information; they are not the leaker themselves – there is a massive difference between them. Also, that user is where I got my information from; it’s respectful to give credit. They can be asked to stop, but they cannot get sued.

  3. Where did you get the source of this?

  4. I want Xingqiu and qiqi I’m maybe mona I’m going to start saving gems

  5. I’m saving my gems for Xiao, and if it works out right away, I’ll save it for Zhongli, who will come later in version 1.2, as expected. Here’s the tip, save your gems for the promotional characters you like. This is unless you want to invest money in the game.
