The Genshin Impact 3.2 Livestream is going to come out this Sunday, October 23. It is set to reveal content from the game's version 3.2 update, which will feature the next phase of Sumeru's storyline, including a powerful new weekly boss.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase everything you need to know about Genshin Impact 3.2 banner schedule.

1. Genshin Impact 3.2 character banners

Like previous patches, the new 3.2 update will have two phases where the banners will feature new characters and weapons. Two new Sumeru characters would appear on the event banners with three character reruns.

Phase 1

The first phase's banner will feature the Dendro Archon Nahida and the 4-star Cryo user Layla. It will start on November 2, 2022.

Yoimiya will be the second banner in phase 1. It is a shame, as every time she get a rerun, Yoimiya has to compete with a much more popular character.

Phase 2

The second phase of patch 3.2 will rerun Yae Miko and Childe, alongside their signature weapons Kagura's Verity and Polar Star.

2. Should you pull in 3.2 character banners?

Pulling for Nahida is pretty much a must. An archon is usually the most powerful character in a patch, and having her allows players to build all kinds of Dendro teams.

Nahida's kit is very well-built. Being a Dendro Catalyst who scales on EM, she has excellent synergy with Pyro, Hydro and Dendro. However, the best team for her is probably Hydro, as her Skill only reacts to Dendro cores damage. This Elemental Synergy also plays an integral part in her kit and potential damage output.

Her boost provides a lot of bonuses based on the type of characters you have in your party. Having two characters of the same element significantly increases the effects. She might even make Burgeon teams viable.

The second phase of the patch with Childe and Yae is not that attractive. Unless you want these characters, it is best to save your primos for the next Sumeru release.

3. Genshin Impact 3.2 weapon banners

Phase 1

The first Epitome Invocation of Genshin Impact 3.2 will feature A Thousand Floating Dreams, Nahida's signature weapon, alongside the Thundering Pulse bow.

How to upgrade the new catalyst in 3.2

A Thousand Floating Dreams

If players like Nahida and want to main her, it is best to try to pull for A Thousand Floating Dreams after getting her in the character banner.

  • 5 Star Catalyst
  • Base Attack 44.34 - 541.83
  • Substat: 57.6 - 264.61 Elemental Mastery

Skill: A Thousand Nights’ Dawnsong

  • Party members other than the equipping character will provide the equipping character with buffs based on whether their Elemental Type is the same as the latter or not. If their Elemental Types are the same, increase Elemental Mastery by 32. If not, increase the equipping character’s DMG Bonus from their Elemental Type by 10%. The aforementioned effects can have 3 stacks.
  • Additionally, all nearby party members other than the equipping character will have their Elemental Mastery increased by 40. Multiple such effects from multiple such weapons can stack.

Thundering Pulse

The second banner features the Thundering Pulse, a bow with the second-highest CRIT DMG% in Genshin Impact. Because of that, the bow is highly versatile - any bow DPS character could make use of it.

Phase 2

The second Epitome Invocation will feature Polar Star and Kagura's Verity.

Polar Star

The Polar Star is an amazing tool for Main and Sub-DPS characters. Even at only 2-3 buff stacks, the weapon will give a substantial DMG increase to any character who relies on their Elemental Skill or Burst for DMG. It has the second-highest CRIT Rate out of any Bow.

Kagura's Verity

Kaguya's Verity is a niche weapon. It is good for characters who can spam their Elemental Skill. Yae Miko and Lisa are the best users, as they can cast their Elemental Skill three times in a row. The CRIT DMG stat is great if you want to build a DPS catalyst out of them.

4. Should you pull on 3.2 weapon banners?

Overall, 2 out of 4 five stars weapons in 3.2 are generalists that can be used on all characters. This means pulling for them is a good idea as you would get a usable weapon half the time.

The A Thousand Floating Dreams catalyst is the perfect weapon for Nahida, and if you already get her to a decent constellation, pulling for it is a great idea. With the weapon, players would be able to run Nahida as a main DPS instead of just being an off-field sub.

Kagura's Verity is probably the weakest weapon in this banner due to its niche ability. You need Yae in order to make the most out of it.
