Out with the old and in with the new, Genshin Impact is losing its Albedo banner and preparing to welcome Ganyu into the fray. With her event just around the corner and expected on January 12, the secretary for the Liyue Qixing will also receive a new side story mission on the same date.
Genshin Impact has fallen into a pretty good, and predictable, pattern of introducing us to new characters in the main story quests and then releasing them in the following updates. There are a few four-star characters we haven’t met yet, but the five-stars are all accounted for as Mihoyo builds excitement around every launch. Ganyu was no different, and we were introduced to her in chapter one, act two shortly after reaching Liyue.
Ganyu, like other banner characters, will receive a more fleshed out story in her new sidequest this Tuesday. As a devout follower of Rex Lapis and half-human, half-adeptus, she’s an interesting character. Some of her physical appearance reflects that as Ganyu sports horns and characteristics only found in the gods of Teyvat.
Ganyu’s side story, titled Sinae Unicornis Chapter, will be available to travelers who have reached Adventure Rank 40 or above and completed the Archon Quest, Chapter 1: Act III – A New Star Approaches. If you’re already over Adventure Rank 26, you should have unlocked the story quest feature, which will allow you to complete daily quests in exchange for keys. You’ll get one key for every eight daily commissions completed, so save those up to unlock extra missions for your favorite party members.
While Mihoyo hasn’t explicitly said Ganyu releases on January 12, it’s assumed she will and this date for her side quest all but confirms it. The usual pattern of these things is that within the hour of one banner ending, another begins. We saw it with the transition from Zhongli to Albedo, and expect to see it again here.
Ganyu will join the ranks of Cryo element and bow users in her banner this week. And since she’s got her own special five-star banner, she’ll be a limited pull. If you want the adorable goat girl, make sure you stock up on Primogems and start pulling for her before time runs out.
