Genshin Impact update 3.6 will introduce Kaveh and Baizhu as the two new characters.
The first half is expected to have Nahida and Nilou as the featured characters.
The second half will feature Baizhu and Ganyu as the 5-stars along with Kaveh as the featured 4-star.

Genshin Impact 3.6 is set to introduce three rerun banners as well as two new characters. Baizhu will be the only new 5-star we receive along with Kaveh as the game’s newest 4-star character. Nahida, Nilou, and Ganyu will be the returning characters and if you do not have Nahida, she is arguably the best character among the three to go for. Here is the full schedule for Genshin Impact update 3.6 and the banners for each half.

Genshin Impact 3.6 Banners  - Nahida and Nilou (First Half)

According to leakers vississ, Team China and Tao, Nahida, and Nilou will be in the first half on 12th or 13th April depending on your region. Both banners will be available for three weeks before switching over to the second set of banners.

Nahida is one of the must-have characters if you are looking to build a strong Dendro team. She has great off-field Dendro application and you can also use her on-field as a “driver” for your reaction teams.

Nilou is a Hydro unit centered around the Bloom reaction. While her kit might feel restrictive as she requires you to run only Dendro and Hydro characters to get the most value out of her, her teams perform fairly well. 

Genshin Impact 3.6 Banners - Baizhu, Ganyu and Kaveh (Second Half)

Baizhu and Ganyu are the 5-stars who will make an appearance in the second half of 3.6. Kaveh will be on both banners so if you are looking to pull for him, you can try your luck on either the Baizhu or Ganyu banners. But do note that you are not guaranteed to get 4-star units like you are with 5-stars and going for him could end up poorly if you don’t want the 5-stars.

Ganyu is a solid 5-star Cryo unit who can work in Freeze and Melt teams. She is also great to have for the open world as her high raw damage allows you to one-shot most mobs during exploration. 

Baizhu is a Dendro healer, who might have synergy with Dendro-based reaction teams. We recommend waiting for reviews after his release before deciding if you should pull for him or not.  The second-half banners are expected to arrive around 3rd May and will be available for 20-21 days.
