Genshin Impact was one of the best games of 2020 be it on console, mobile, or PC, and the game has received plenty updates such as 1.2 which gave us Albedo and the Dragonspine area. While update 1.2 has given us Albedo so far, the second major banner is Ganyu for whom a release time has now been shared. Here you’ll find the Ganyu banner release time for Genshin Impact, and you’ll also discover how to start her story quest.

While the second significant part of update 1.2 is right around the corner, fans also have a Lost Riches event to contend with to get some Iron Coins. These Iron Coins are essential in getting a Mini Seelie pet which will follow you around like a good boy.

You still have more than a week to get a Mini Seelie pet, meanwhile the arrival of the blue-haired combatant is right around the corner. Below you’ll find the Ganyu banner release time for Genshin Impact, and you’ll also discover how to start her story quest.

How to start Ganyu’s story quest in Genshin Impact

You can start Ganyu’s story quest in Genshin Impact on January 12th at 18:00 server time.

In order to start Ganyu’s story quest, Sinae Unicornis Chapter, you will need to have reached at least Adventure Rank 40 in Genshin Impact, and you’ll also need to have completed Archon Quest, Chapter I: Act III – A New Star Approaches.

The above criteria comes courtesy of miHoYo’s website.

MiHoYo’s Sinae Unicornis Chapter story quest will be permanently available after its launch, meanwhile the Ganyu banner will run on limited time.

What time does the Ganyu banner come out in Genshin Impact?

The release time for when the Ganyu banner will come out in Genshin Impact is 18:00 server time on January 12th.

While the Ganyu banner will come out in Genshin Impact at the specified release time above, it will end on February 2nd at 15:00 server time.

As for what you get from the event wish Adrift in the Harbor, the five-star blue-haired female combatant is the obvious biggie.

The other characters available are four-stars:

  • Xiangling
  • Xingqiu
  • Noelle

MiHoYo’s Facebook announcement ends with the following clarification: “Of the above characters, the event-exclusive character will not be available in the standard wish Wanderlust Invocation”.
