Genshin Impact “All Senses Clear, All Existence Void” Version 3.3 Phase 1: Character and Weapon Banners

New banners for the Version 3.3 Update!

Genshin Impact Version 3.3 will go live once the server maintenance is over, which begins at 06:00 (UTC+8) on the 7th of December, 2022, and is estimated to take 5 hours. Players will be able to pull on the character and weapon banners, once the 3.2 update goes live. The banners will be available till the date of 27th of December, 2022 at 17:59 server time. The Version 3.3 Phase 1 banners will feature one new 5* character, one new 5* weapon, and one new 4* character. In this article, we will discuss the character and weapon banners of the Genshin Impact Version 3.3 Update Phase 1.

Genshin Impact Version 3.3 Phase 1 First Character Banner: From Ashes Reborn

This banner features the debut of Scaramouche as a playable character. He was first introduced as an NPC in Version 1.1, and later, he played an important role in the Inazuma Archon Quest. After a long wait, he is finally playable, and he will go by the name Wanderer from now on. Following Xiao and Heizou, Wanderer will also be an Anemo DPS. Anemo characters, both 4* and 5* usually tend to be great support characters, but Wanderer has the potential to be the best Anemo DPS so far.

The event-exclusive 5* character “Eons Adrift” Wanderer (anemo/catalyst) will receive a huge drop-rate boost during the banner period. Wanderer will be accompanied by the 4* characters “Enigmatic Machinist” Faruzan (anemo/bow), “Canine Warrior” Gorou (geo/bow), and “Wise Innocence” Yanfei (pyro/catalyst), who will also receive a huge drop-rate boost. 

Faruzan is the new 4* character, who will debut alongside Wanderer. She is a specialized support for anemo DPS characters. She will most likely be the best-in-slot support for Wanderer, in the way Gorou is for Itto. Gorou and Yanfei are also permanently available in the Standard Wish – Wanderlust Invocation without any boosted drop rates. Faruzan will be permanently available in the Standard Wish after version 3.3 ends.

Genshin Impact Version 3.3 Phase 1 Second Character Banner: Oni’s Royale

This banner features the second rerun of the first and only Geo main DPS Arataki Itto. He was first released all the way back in Version 2.3. The event-exclusive 5* character “Hanamizaka Heroics” Arataki Itto (geo/claymore) will receive a huge drop-rate boost during the banner period. 

Itto will be accompanied by the 4* characters “Enigmatic Machinist” Faruzan (anemo/bow), “Canine Warrior” Gorou (geo/bow), and “Wise Innocence” Yanfei (pyro/catalyst), who will also receive a huge drop-rate boost. Gorou and Yanfei are also permanently available in the Standard Wish – Wanderlust Invocation without any boosted drop rates. Faruzan will be permanently available in the Standard Wish after version 3.3 ends.

Genshin Impact Version 3.3 Phase I Weapon Banner: Epitome Invocation

This banner features the debut of Wanderer’s signature best-in-slot 5* weapon Tulaytullah’s Remembrance (catalyst), as well as a rerun of Arataki Itto’s signature best-in-slot 5* weapon, Redhorn Stonethresher (claymore). 

This banner features the event-exclusive 4* weapon Wavebreaker’s Fin (polearm), as well as Sacrificial Sword (sword), Favonious Greatsword (claymore),  Eye of Perception (catalyst), and Favonious Warbow (bow). It does not debut any new 4* weapons. All of them will receive a huge drop rate boost. Sacrificial Sword (sword), Favonious Greatsword (claymore),  Eye of Perception (catalyst), and Favonious Warbow (bow) are also permanently available in the Standard Wish – Wanderlust Invocation, without any boosted drop rates.

Final Thoughts

The main attraction of Genshin Impact 3.3 Phase 1 banners is Wanderer. He is one of the most anticipated characters in Genshin Impact. He is looking to be a premier Anemo DPS, with a playstyle slightly similar to Heizou. He also possesses the vertical mobility of Venti/Kazuha, combined with the horizontal aerial mobility of Xiao, making him the best character for overworld traversal. Many players will be pulling for him, understandably so.

At the moment, Itto is the only Geo main DPS in Genshin Impact. If players are interested in playing mono Geo comps, they would definitely prefer to pull for him over Wanderer. It is really great that two of the 4* characters featured on this banner are Faruzan and Gorou. Faruzan buffs anemo DMG and lower enemies’ anemo resistance, while Gorou buffs DEF for DEF scaling characters like Itto. Faruzan and Gorou are the best support characters for Wanderer and Itto, respectively. Players pulling for either of them will end up getting their best support, and there is nothing better than that.

Among the 5* weapons, the Redhorn Stonethresher has limited usability, it is only good on Itto and Noelle. Tulaytullah’s Remembrance is a good weapon for main DPS catalyst users who are normal attack reliant and frequently use the elemental skill. Other than Wanderer, only Heizou could potentially benefit from this weapon. Among the 4* weapons, the Sacrificial Sword and Favonious Warbow are great weapons to equip on supporting characters. However, it is never advisable to pull on the weapon banner just for the 4* weapons.
