Genshin Impact 4.8 Banner leaks

We'll have to wait for the 4.8 livestream for official details on who the character event Banners will be, but there has been some leaks and official information that has provided details on the likely upcoming 4.8 Banners for Phase 1 and Phase 2.

With this is mind, thanks to leaks from Full Stop Chan relayed by hxg_diluc and dimbreath on X, it's likely that Navia and Nilou are the first 4.8 Banners in Genshin Impact. Navia is a Geo claymore-user, and Nilou is a Hydro sword-user

Thanks to official drip marketing on social media, it's also all but confirmed that Emilie will be the new 5-Star Banner debuting sometime in version 4.8, with the same leaks above pointing to her releasing in Phase 2 of 4.8, alongside a rerun of Yelan. Emilie uses the Dendro Element, but we don't officially know what weapon she wields yet, and Yelan is a Hydro archer.

If the leaks turn out to be true, then here's what the 4.8 Banner schedule will be:

  • Navia - Phase 1
  • Nilou - Phase 1
  • Emilie - Phase 2
  • Yelan - Phase 2

As a reminder, none of this information is official, so we'll have to wait until the 4.8 livestream for solid details on who will be on the next Banners in Genshin Impact.
