Genshin Impact’s Raiden Shogun banner returns soon — what you need to know
Bow to sword boob lady.
Raiden Shogun, a five-star Electro Polearm character in Genshin Impact, is not only the godly Archon of the Inazuma region, but she’s also one of the most sought-after playable characters in the game’s history. In fact, she’s so good that she’s lasted at the top of Genshin Impact’s meta since her release in Version 2.1. She’s currently running with Kamisato Ayato, leader of the Kamisato Clan and Ayaka’s brother, in Genshin Impact 3.3. It’s easy to wonder if Raiden Shogun is worth it with Dendro swordsman Alhaitham and other powerhouses on the way, though.
Here’s everything you need to know about the current Raiden Shogun banner.
When is the Genshin Impact Raiden Shogun Banner end time?
The latest Raiden Shogun banner began on December 27, 2022 and will conclude on January 17, 2023.
Is there a Genshin Impact Raiden Shogun trailer?
Yes! There’s one showcasing her history. You can currently enjoy a very glum character trailer for Raiden Shogun. Watch below:
Who are the Genshin Impact Raiden Shogun Banner characters?

- The Electro Bow user, Sara Kujou
- The Cryo Polearm user, Rosaria
- The Anemo Claymore user, Sayu
Are you guaranteed to get Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact?
Not quite. You're not guaranteed to get Raiden Shogun, even if you pull from her banner. Luckily, Genshin Impact does feature a Mercy system. If you conduct 89 attempts without getting a five-star reward, you're guaranteed a five-star item on your ninetieth pull. The guaranteed five-star item has a 50 percent chance to be Raiden Shogun. If that first pity five-star wasn't Raiden Shogun, your next five-star will be. This means, at most, you'll need 180 wishes to get Raiden Shogun.
If you participated in a previous Event Banner without earning a five-star character, your progress will carry over to the Raiden Shogun Banner. Which only means you'll have that much greater chance at obtaining her.
Is Raiden Shogun a good character in Genshin Impact?
She’s a very versatile character. You can utilize her as a support character or a sub-DPS to back up your primary hitter. Raiden Shogun’s Elemental Skill provides a nice buff to your characters, allowing them to deal some Electro damage with every hit.
Raiden Shogun works wonderfully with other Elemental Bursts in your party. As other characters use their Elemental Bursts, Raiden Shogun will slowly gain a buff to her own ultimate ability. Her kit allows her to have great synergy with almost any party. If you can switch between Raiden Shogun and other characters regularly your party will become much stronger with her at your side.
Notably, Raiden Shogun especially works well in Elemental Burst-dependent teams that rely heavily on energy. If you currently have a party like that, she is an amazing character and even worth paying for if you want an evergreen powerhouse that will work with multiple team comps.
What Banner comes after Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact?
Based on leaks, Dendro sword user Alhaitham will likely follow Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact 3.4. Note that HoYoverse hasn’t confirmed the five-stars for the upcoming banners or its four-stars yet. It’s possible that one of them will be four-star Dendro polearm Yaoyao.
