Genshin Impact players can acquire the new 5-star character, Nahida, from the Moongrass’ Enlightenment Banner, but she is only available until Friday, 18 November 2022.
In this adventurous video game, Genshin Impact, you can explore the world of Teyvat, which is home to 7 distinct nations. Each nation has a corresponding element and is ruled by a unique god.
The game’s narrative follows the Traveller, who has travelled across a number of worlds with their twin, however, they are separated in Teyvat. As the traveller, it is your responsibility to find your sibling with the assistance of your companion, Teyvat.
You may have to defeat several enemies as you search, but fortunately, you can unlock and collect characters to aid you in battle. One of the characters that you can collect is Nahida. Several players have wondered what banner Nahida is a part of.
How to unlock additional characters in Genshin Impact
When you first start playing Genshin Impact, you will only have access to a few characters, though you can unlock additional characters as you advance in the game.
There are several characters that you can acquire by completing missions, most of which can be obtained through the gacha system.
A gacha system allows players to use an in-game currency for the chance to procure additional characters and items. Before you can participate in the gacha system, you have to collect Fate, which is the gacha currency.
Once you have Fate, you can open the Wish menu to get a randomly-drawn character or item.
There are different banners in Genshin Impact. Some are available at any time, while others are only active for a specific time period.
A Banner contains specific characters and items, and when you pull on that banner, you are guaranteed one of the items or characters from the Banner.
It is recommended that gamers carefully consider which items or characters are available on the Banner before they perform a pull. This is because you cannot return or exchange the character or item that you received if you performed a pull from the wrong banner.
At the time of writing, players can enjoy Phase 1 of the Moongrass’ Enlightenment Banner, but it is noteworthy that it concludes on Friday, 18 November 2022. During this time, you can get the new Dendro catalyst user, Nahida, as the 5-star boosted character.
In addition to Nahida, you can acquire the following 4-star boosted characters from the same banner:
- Razor (Electro)
- Noelle (Geo)
- Bennett (Pyro)
However, the Moongrass’ Enlightenment banner is not the only banner currently available, as you can also pull in the Tapestry of Golden Flames banner. It features a new 5-star weapon called A Thousand Floating Dreams catalyst, which is Nahida’s signature weapon.
It is thus advised that you pull on both banners, as you could obtain both Nahida and her weapon. However, you can also procure the 5-star Thundering Pulse bow, which is Yoimiya’s signature weapon.
Both banners conclude on Friday, 18 November 2022, and therefore, you should attempt to acquire Nahida and her signature weapon before then.
Nahida is the first Dendro catalyst user, but unlike other archons, she does not assume the role of main damage dealer. Instead, she can be used as a sub-damage dealer or as a supporting unit, which uses powerful Dendro reactions.
Her main focus is her elemental skill, which casts karmic bonds of wood and tree from her side. It deals area-of-effect Dendro damage and marks 8 enemies with the Seed of Skandha, which links opponents. Once elemental damage is inflicted, they take damage from Dendro Cores.
The best Nahida build uses her signature weapon, A Thousand Floating Dreams, and the 4-piece artifact set, Gilded Dreams.
Can Nahida be upgraded?
In order to get the most out of using Nahida, players have to level up her skills using Talent materials. You need to farm a lot of Crystalline Cyst Dust and Ingenuity to fully upgrade her skills and abilities.
Since Nahida has 3 talent trees, you have to spend 3 times the talent materials, which translates to a lot of farming.
You need the following talent materials to fully upgrade 1 of Nahida’s skills:
- 1 652 500 Mora
- 38 Philosophies to Ingenuity
- 31 Crystalline Cyst Dust
- 22 Luminescent Pollen
- 21 Guide to Ingenuity
- 6 Puppet Strings
- 6 Fungal Spores
- 3 Teachings of Ingenuity
- 1 Crown of Insight
How to procure Fate
There are 2 types of Fate in Genshin Impact, and each one can be obtained using different methods. Players can get 4 Intertwined Fate from the Premium Gnostic’ Hymn Battle pass tier every time it refreshes, while 5 Acquaint Fate can be acquired from the free Sojourner’s Battle Pass tier.
You can also purchase Acquaint Fate or Intertwined Fate from Paimon’s Bargains shop with Primogems, Masterless Starglitter, or Masterless Stardust.
