What are the leak characters for the banners after Klee?

Klee’s Sparkling Steps banner will end before 1.1 update. The next two banners will feature feature Diona, Xinyan, Zhongli and Childe. The latter two you should have met them in the main story line and we have already covered about the 4 character in terms of their skills and 1.1 update leaks before.

Real Genshin Impact 1.1 CBT CN leak details by sacrificing one player himself


The leak came from Reddit user u/wrightosaur. Although the poster might not be the same as what MiHoYO rolling out when the server going for public live, the subreddit mods were inclined to believe the leak after speaking with him.

Here is what the mod supersonic159 said:

There seems to be a supporting image going around, but the OP was not forth coming about information, so I’ve not been able to come to any conclusions. I did discover some pieces of information from a couple different sources that I still need verify, but until I get more information from a more direct source, this is all I can do for now.

With the supporting image I lean more to it being real, but until I have solid information that corroborates with what I’ve gathered, I’ll go ahead and keep the “potentially fake” tag. Stay safe and skeptical everyone, but please play nice.

Original: Since the OP seems to have very specific knowledge of where this ‘leak’ datamine came from, I have reached out to the OP to verify this information. I, nor any of the mod team on the subreddit have any ties to Mihoyo, but we need to verify the validity of the information because there’s some stuff that doesn’t really add up. I will update this comment once I am able to verify if this is legit or not. I’ll leave the post up for now, but I’ve tagged it as ‘potentially fake’.

The next banner will most likely be

Pool 1: Childe (Hydro Bow) Ningguang (Geo Catalyst) Beidou (Electro Claymore) Diona (Cryo Bow)

Pool 2: Zhongli (Geo Polearm) Razor (Electro Claymore) Chongyun (Cryo Claymore) Xinyan (Pyro Claymore)


Is it real?

According to Nipponhashi analysts, it looks like the pictures provided are just two .png document datamined from the UI of the game for the next banners (most likely PC server) which is hidden from the public but already implemented on the live server. As for CBT CN server, those characters are provided to the players free via mail. the .png files will be overlayed with fonts and other layers for the banner frontend coding when you click on it for gacha.

MiHoYo are VERY EXPERIENCED in leaking information this way to hype up updates so you will spending money on it quick.


What do netizens think?

Reddit User u/MyLittleUFO had to best opinion on it:

I thought so too at first, but upon further analysis I’m starting to believe it actually makes a lot of sense if we look at the pattern established by the previous 2 banners. MiHoYo kinda drove themselves into a corner by putting Fischl and Xiangling (users of the two least represented weapon types) in Venti’s banner instead of a claymore (weapon type with 5 existing users).

As unfortunate as it is, this combination of characters seems to be the only possibility they could have gone with that:

  • Avoids repeating banner-featured characters

  • Ensures no banner has two of the same element

  • Doesn’t include the 3 free characters (Amber, Lisa, Kaeya) since people are probably more interested in expanding their roster rather than building up constellations right now

  • Doesn’t intersect with any of the characters featured on Starglitter Exchange while the banner is up

As of 1.1 the game will contain the following 4-star characters, 16 in total:

  • Amber (Pyro Bow)

  • Barbara (Hydro Catalyst)

  • Beidou (Electro Claymore)

  • Bennett (Pyro Sword)

  • Chongyun (Cryo Claymore)

  • Fischl (Electro Bow)

  • Kaeya (Cryo Sword)

  • Lisa (Electro Catalyst)

  • Ningguang (Geo Catalyst)

  • Noelle (Geo Claymore)

  • Razor (Electro Claymore)

  • Sucrose (Anemo Catalyst)

  • Xiangling (Pyro Polearm)

  • Xingqiu (Hydro Sword)

  • Diona (Cryo Bow)

  • Xinyan (Pyro Claymore)

3 characters are eliminated for being freely given at the start of the game and therefore unattractive for banners this close to the game’s launch.

Amber (Pyro Bow)

Lisa (Electro Catalyst)

Kaeya (Cryo Sword)

6 characters are eliminated for having been featured in recent banners.

Venti (Anemo Bow):

Barbara (Hydro Catalyst)

Fischl (Electro Bow)

Xiangling (Pyro Polearm)

Klee (Pyro Catalyst):

Sucrose (Anemo Catalyst)

Noelle (Geo Claymore)

Xingqiu (Hydro Sword)

Additionally 4 characters could not have been included in previous banners because they were featured in Starglitter Exchange while the banners were active (Razor and Amber during Venti and Klee, Bennett and Lisa during Klee). Two of them will be available for the upcoming two banners (Razor, Amber) but Bennett and Lisa still can’t be in any banners that pop up this month. Effectively that means:

1 character is eliminated for being featured in Starglitter Exchange throughout November.

Bennett (Pyro Sword)

Without the eliminated characters, the possible pool of 4-star characters for the Childe and Zhongli banners is reduced to:

Beidou (Electro Claymore)

Chongyun (Cryo Claymore)

Ningguang (Geo Catalyst)

Razor (Electro Claymore)

Diona (Cryo Bow)

Xinyan (Pyro Claymore)

Yeah… that’s a lot of claymores, but I guess that’s Karma for not spreading them out more throughout the previous 2 banners, combined with the unfortunate timing of introducing a new one.

One way or another, the combinations featured in the allegedly leaked banners seem to be the only way to maintain the no-duplicate-elements pattern while also ensuring that there are 2 new and 2 existing characters per banner so that they both have equal novelty appeal.

Childe (Hydro Bow):

Ningguang (Geo Catalyst)

Beidou (Electro Claymore)

Diona (Cryo Bow)

Zhongli (Geo Polearm)

Razor (Electro Claymore)

Chongyun (Cryo Claymore)

Xinyan (Pyro Claymore)

I don’t see a way out of this dead-end. It’s a danged if you do darned if you don’t situation.

Try to put Ningguang under Zhongli and you get 2 Geo under one banner.

Try to swap Diona and Xinyan around and suddenly there’s 2 Cryo users under one banner.

Try to swap out Chongyun for Diona and now you have 3 new characters in a single banner vs 1.

Try to swap Diona and Xinyan around, as well as Chongyun for Beidou, and you end up with 2 Electro under one banner.

Try to swap Razor and Beidou around and… that’s actually the only alteration that works! Buuuuut since they’re both Electro Claymore, it doesn’t solve the problem XD

He summarised things up like Sherlock Holms with logics and it’s a good read for everyone to think about the design of the gacha pool system of Genshin Impact. And he is actually true that the banner system is never perfect YET this is the way how MiHoYo can earn more money from players by mixing up bad gachas with good ones and now allowing you to diversify your own characters squad. This makes you owning a bunch very similar and overlapping property/role of characters from one pool making your team less effective and unplayable so you need to spend money on another pool as well.

In the end of the day, if you are free to play player, you won’t be able to have enough character and materials to finish high level spiral and dungeons. You will need 3 strong teams at least for 12 non-overlapping characters.
