Banner Guides & History

New Type of Event Wish in 2.3

Genshin - 2.3 Phase 1 Banners
Genshin Impact introduced the ''Character Event Wish-2'' in Version 2.3, as a way to run both Albedo and Eula banners at the same time. These two banners share the pity count, so you can pull on one and switch to the other without sacrificing Primogems!

When is the Event Wish-2 Available?

It was available as soon as Version 2.3 was released, but MiHoYo announced that Event Wish-2 won't always be active. It will just be a special, recurring banner for some Version Updates.

All New Artifacts in Update 2.3

Artifact Set Bonuses
Genshin - Husk of Opulent Dreams FlowerHusk of Opulent Dreams 2-Piece: DEF +30%
4-Piece: A character equipped with this Artifact set will obtain the Curiosity effect int the following conditions: When on the field, the character gains 1 stack after hitting an opponent with a Geo attack, triggering a maximum of once every 0.3s. When off the field, the character gains 1 stack every 3s. Curiosity can stack up to 4 times, each providing 6% DEF and a 6% Geo DMG Bonus. When 6 seconds pass without gaining a Curiosity stack, 1 stack is lost.
Genshin - Ocean-Hued Clam FlowerOcean-Hued Clam 2-Piece: Healing Bonus +15%
4-Piece: When the character equipping this artifact set heals a character in the party, a Sea-Dyed Foam will appear for 3 seconds, accumulating the amount of HP recovered from healing (including overflow healing). At the end of the duration, the Sea-Dyed Foam will explode, dealing DMG to nearby opponents based on 90% of the accumulated healing. (This DMG is calculated similarly to Reactions such as Electro-Charged, and Superconduct, but is not affected by Elemental Mastery, Character Levels, or Reaction DMG Bonuses). Only one Sea-Dyed Foam can be produced every 3.5 seconds. Each Sea-Dyed Foam can accumulate up to 30,000 HP (including overflow healing). There can be no more than one Sea-Dyed Foam active at any given time. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.

How to Get the New Artifacts

Both of the new artifacts in Version 2.3 are obtained as rewards from an upcoming Domain in Seirai Island: The Slumbering Court!
