Genshin Impact version 4.2 Phase 2 Weapon banner: Epitome Invocation

This banner features the reruns of two 5* weapons, Haran Geppaku Futsu (sword) and Staff of the Scarlet Sands (polearm). These are the signature best-in-slot weapons for Ayato and Cyno, respectively.

This banner also features the 4-star weapons Lion’s Roar (sword), Favonius Greatsword (claymore), Favonius Lance (polearm), The Widsith (catalyst), and Favonius Warbow (bow). All of these 4* weapons are also permanently available in the Standard Wish – Wanderlust Invocation without any boosted drop rates.

Should you go for either Cyno or Ayato in Genshin Impact

Neither Kamisato Ayato nor Cyno are must-pull characters. Players should only pull for them if they like them. The real stars of these banners are the 4* characters. Xiangling has always been a top-tier Pyro sub-DPS and Kuki Shinobu found her place as a Hyperbloom unit after the release of Dendro as a playable element. Kirara is also an amazing Dendro shielder for teams that need one.

A very similar case for the weapon banner as well, all of the 4* weapons are amazing except for Favonius Greatsword. The 5* weapons are kind of niche and only work best on their intended characters, so do not pull for them if you don’t have Ayato/Cyno.
