Zhongli is added into the game through the new event banner: Gentry of Hermitage. Summoning on the banner will have a 50% chance of getting Zhongli. Through the game's pity system, if your last five star that you got was not the banner character, the next 5 star is guaranteed to be the banner character. The rates of getting Xinyan, Chongyun, and Razor are also increased!

Weapons Rate Up- Epitome Invocation

Coming with Zhongli's banner is the new weapons banner as well. This time, it comes with new and limited 5 stars: Vortex Vanquisher (Polearm) and The Unforged (Claymore). Both the weapons have the same passive effect, which boosts attack up to 20% (becomes 40% if you have a shield on) when you hit enemies, as well as increases shield strength. It's a good weapon to consider if you want to use Zhongli as a damage dealer.

Zhongli Character Information

Zhongli is a consultant for Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, and is knowledgeable and well-versed in various details regarding the ceremonies of sending adepti to the afterlife. We first see him in Liyue main quests where we are introduced to him by Childe, and are tasked to help with his duties.

Genshin Impact Official Youtube has posted a character tales video about Zhongli, where we get to see more about his daily life and personality.

Is Zhongli Good?

Zhongli's skills are more defensive focused, and has some synergy with other Geo characters. While his elemental skill has low multiplier for damage, the shield it provides has high value that scales off of his HP, as well as getting stronger when attacked because of his first ascension passive. His elemental burst deals huge burst damage and petrifies the enemy for a few seconds, allowing your team to get some free hits. His energy gain may be an issue, but you can rely on your other characters to help with that. He also has one of the highest base HP in the game, which boosts his elemental skill and elemental burst's effectiveness.

It's worth noting that he uses Polearm, which has the highest attack speed animation out of the other weapons. He can be built for a damage dealer type if you go with the right setup, but it can take more to build him up compared to other better damage dealer characters.

Test Run

It is highly advised to at least try out the characters first before you invest your resources to try and get the characters. Doing these will also give you rewards. Keep in mind that the trial characters come with some preset equipments and possibly constellations, which can change the feel of the character when used. Be sure to view their equipments during battle.

Story Quest - Historia Antiqua

story quest banner

The new story quest for Zhongli will be released at the same time as the new event banner, and will be permanently unlockable.

You need to be at Adventure Rank 40 or above and complete all quests in Chapter I: Act III - A New Star Approaches.

Should you pull?

If you are in need of a defensive/tanky character, you can consider summoning for him. He can be a good addition to the team if you happen to use other Geo characters. The banner also comes with other really good 4 star characters, so it's definitely not a bad banner to go after.

If you already got a non banner character from your last 5 star on a limited banner, consider if you want to get the guaranteed on banner character on Zhongli or not, or save it for a future character.
