- Our purpose is to provide information about upcoming character releases to help Travelers plan ahead, due to how difficult and expensive pull currency is to save and obtain.- We have a separate website for non-leak-related guides and resources.- The SYP Team consists of two admins (A.Q. and I.T.) and a small, wonderful team of volunteer translators we'd be nowhere without.- We are proud to have been the first group dedicated to aggregating and tracking the reliability of banner-related leaks in a single, easy-to-reference place. Since we started, we have built and continue to maintain a Leaks Archive on Discord that tracks reliable leaks across EN, CN, and RUS sources.- Should we have reliable intel to share, we now sometimes leak character-related information at SpendYourPrimos.- We avoid spoilers as best we can, but light spoilers for the existence of future characters/events/skins/etc. are necessary to help create banner timelines.- The best we can provide is what trusted sources currently believe to be true. Every aspect is subject to change, every source is subject to being incorrect.

The SYP Commandments1. Never pull without a plan.2. Always plan for worst case scenario.3. Waifu/Husbando > Meta, but every character also deserves to be balanced and worth your investment.4. Your mental and financial well-being is more important than a game.5. "Building pity" is a myth invented by the paper-handed. Never pull unless you're okay getting the rate-up 5✰.


As we hope our work (and the even harder work of others) will one day no longer be needed, we ask for the implementation of proper roadmaps and release calendars on every official survey. To support us, please consider doing the same. - SYP Team

Archived Roadmap Speculation- 2.4 - Xiao (5✰) Rerun.Rationale: Xiao was released during Lantern Rite 2021, so he is widely speculated to have his first rerun Lantern Rite 2022. In addition, unlike other characters, Xiao's new lines About Shenhe are locked behind what is believed to be a quest requirement, leading to the speculation that Xiao is involved lore-wise to Shenhe's upcoming release.- 2.4/2.5 - Ganyu (5✰) Rerun.2.5 Rationale: Allegedly, Yae's release + Ganyu rerun were originally slated for 2.2, but they were pushed back for unknown reasons. If Yae is arriving in 2.5, there is a possibility Ganyu is still planned to rerun alongside her.2.4 Rationale: With the introduction of the dual rerun banner system, it is now possible for both Xiao and Ganyu to be rerun at the same time, which would roughly align with the timeline of their 2021 debuts.- Original 2.4 Prediction: Shenhe (5✰) + Yunjin (4✰) release. Xiao (5✰) rerun. Thoma (4✰) rate-up. Additional candidates: Ganyu, Zhongli, Kazuha, Ayaka
- Adjusted 2.4 Prediction: First half - Shenhe (5✰) + Yunjin (4✰) release; (possible) Zhongli (5✰) rerun. Second half - Xiao (5✰) + Ganyu (5✰) rerun. Thoma (4✰) rate-up. // Other: Free 4✰ Character via Event
- Official Announcement: First half - Shenhe (5✰) + Yunjin (4✰) // Xiao (5✰) rerun + Yunjin (4✰). Second half - Zhongli (5✰) rerun + Ganyu (5✰) rerun. // Other: Lantern Rite "Choose Your Own" Liyue 4✰ Character.
2.4 is predicted to be Lantern Rite. A trusted source has claimed 2.4 will see Enkanomiya (Inazuma) and not Chasm (Liyue). With this information, it's reasonable to speculate that if we are getting reruns, they will either be one Liyue character and one Inazuma character, or two Liyue characters.2.4 marks two patches after Thoma's release, a rate-up pattern for all 4✰s to date. This pattern has been broken as of 2.3, as Sara did not appear on either banner. The pattern may no longer be being followed as of the implementation of the dual-rerun banner system.11/26: A trusted source reports a triple rerun of Ganyu/Xiao/Zhongli in addition to Shenhe's release in 2.4. 12/11: The same source reports plans to have Zhongli rerun may have now changed.Shenhe and Yun Jin have been datamined as the first 2.4 banner. The leaked Lantern Rite promotional artwork features Xiao and Ganyu. Chinese New Year 2022 begins February 1st, which would be the second half of 2.4.With this new information, we speculate Shenhe + Zhongli first half, Ganyu + Xiao second half. Thread here. 12/11: If Zhongli does not rerun, we speculate the same banner characters and order but without Zhongli.

Rationale Footnotes

[0] A "reasonable timeframe" is defined as the maximum number of days that have passed since a character's last rerun. Historically, this been 1 year (around 365 days) pre-delay, and around 400 days post-delay.[1] Officially announced. We correctly speculated both the adjustments and the corresponding dates in Roadmap 2.2.(SYP) [2] Debunked via official announcement. An Albedo rerun was officially announced for 3.1. We do not know whether or not this affects the speculation of Albedo having a returning event in December 2022. Though Albedo and Eula would both be due for reruns, we speculate Eula is more likely due to Albedo's events occurring in December.[9] In addition, Mika may be related to Eula somehow.(SYP leak) This speculation has been further supported with Eula playing "a big part" in the 3.1 Event Quest.(BLANK)[3] Confirmed via official announcement. "Wind and Wine" Mondstadt festival in 3.1.(Mero) Assuming Zhongli's rerun in 3.0,(Uncle Chasm) Kusanali's release in 3.2,[6] and Raiden's rerun during the 3.3/3.4 Inazuma event,[14] Venti rerunning during a Mondstadt Wine Festival is plausible. In addition, it would give all new players joining during 3.0 launch the chance to pull every Archon nearly one after the other.[4] Confirmed via Leaks. Kusanali will not have a banner in 3.1.(Upcoming) Assuming Nilou and Cyno release around the same time[2] and Scaramouche releases in 3.3,[8] Kusanali releasing in 3.2 makes more sense in the context of 3.2 being the climax/conclusion of Sumeru's story.[5] Confirmed via Leaks. Though Childe and Hu Tao would both need banners in 3.2/3.3 to rerun within a reasonable timeframe[0], due to Scaramouche's heavy story relevance,[9] we expect to see Childe rerun in 3.2. Due to quad banners in 3.0(Upcoming) and the possibility that quad banners will be the norm going forward, Hu Tao would also be a possibility. Speculation of a Childe rerun has been further supported with Childe being involved in a 3.2 Quest with Yoimiya.(Ubatcha)[6] Confirmed via Leaks. Childe, Yoimiya, and Yae all have event involvement in 3.2.(Ubatcha)[7] Now Confirmed via Leaks. In April, Uncle DD claimed that if Covid didn't affect production, the weekly boss in 3.1 would be Scaramouche.(Uncle DD) Considering the Patch 2.6/2.7 delay which followed, it is reasonable to speculate this event was pushed to 3.2. Though originally stated to be playable in 3.2 by Uncle DD,(Uncle DD) Mero has strongly implied that Scaramouche will be playable in a patch following his debut as a boss.(Mero)[8] Refer to Footnote [2]. The annual Dragonspine / Albedo Lore event has historically taken place in December.(Wiki - Patch 1.2; Wiki - Patch 2.3) With the 3.0 - 3.2 banner shortenings[1], Albedo could see a rerun in either 3.2 or 3.3. Due to multiple other reruns having a higher possibility in 3.2, we speculate Albedo will rerun in 3.3.[9] Both Eula and Hu Tao would need banners in 3.3 to rerun within a reasonable timeframe.[0] Hu Tao could theoretically be pushed to 3.4 Lantern Rite. However, Eula is a Mondstadt character, so if her rerun is not in 3.3 it would not be until 3.5, wherein she would be very overdue.[10] Inazuma event/festival in 3.3, in which Raiden may appear.(HXG 1; HXG 2) Assuming Zhongli's rerun in 3.0,(Uncle Chasm) Venti's rerun during the 3.1 Mondstadt event,[4] and Kusanali's release in 3.2,[6] Raiden rerunning during an Inazuma event is plausible. In addition, it would give all new players joining during 3.0 launch the chance to pull every Archon nearly one after the other.[11] Inazuma event/festival in 3.3, during which Ayaka receives a skin.(HXG 1; HXG 2; Mero 1) It is reasonable to speculate Ayaka will see a rerun along the release of her skin, as hers would be the first skin released for a limited 5✰ character--however, due to her heavily extended banner in 2.6, it is equally reasonable to speculate she will either not be rerun, or her skin and rerun may come at a later date.[12] Reruns of most other Inazuman characters are fair game. Raiden and Ayaka have entries above.[10][11] Aside from them, at this point in time, the longest time passed since last rerun for other Inazuman characters would be as follows:Ayato > Itto > Kazuha > Yoimiya > Yae[13] In 2023, Chinese New Year is on January 22nd, which would fall within Patch 3.4 after the adjusted patch dates.[1] Assuming Hu Tao does not rerun in 3.3.[11] Due to superstition regarding death-related motifs during Chinese New Year (previously acknowledged with Hu Tao's banner never occurring during the holiday), we would expect to see her banner during the second half of 3.4, which would not fall on the CNY holiday itself.[14] In 2023, Chinese New Year is on January 22nd, which would fall within Patch 3.4 after the adjusted patch dates.[1] Patch 3.4 would be the first anniversary of Shenhe's release.[15] In 2023, Chinese New Year is on January 22nd, which would fall within Patch 3.4 after the adjusted patch dates.[1] Though they both saw banners in 2.7, Xiao's banner is historically seen during Lantern Rite, while Yelan is a Liyue character who would not have yet received a rerun since her release.[16] Current data suggests 3.x reaches 3.8 before 4.0.[Misc - Ubatcha] Assuming no new double 5✰ patches as seen with Cyno/Nilou in 3.1, Alhaitham could be released in 3.7/3.8. It is also generally speculated that, due to the nature of their relationship in canon and the fact he is also Dendro, Kaveh will be a support unit for Alhaitham. However, there is currently no evidence for this.

Due to multiple other reruns having a higher possibility in 3.2, we speculate Albedo will rerun in 3.3.[11] Hu Tao would need a banner in 3.3 to rerun within a reasonable timeframe.[0] Due to superstition regarding death-related motifs during Chinese New Year (previously acknowledged with Hu Tao's banner never occurring during the holiday), we may see her rerun before the Lantern Rite patch.[12] Inazuma event/festival in 3.3, in which Raiden may appear.(HXG 1; HXG 2) Assuming Zhongli's rerun in 3.0,(Uncle Chasm) Venti's rerun during the 3.1 Mondstadt event,[4] and Kusanali's release in 3.2,[6] Raiden rerunning during an Inazuma event is plausible.

According to Uncle Lu, 3.4 will have no new 5✰ characters. As Baizhu and Yaoyao have been speculated to be released close together thus far, we have also removed Yaoyao from the speculative timeline as she currently has no evidence of a pending release. She will be put back if we learn anything new.Historically, Chinese New Year has overlapped with the Lantern Rite patch. In 2023, Chinese New Year is on January 22nd, which would fall within Patch 3.4 if leaked adjustments to previous patches are true.[0] As highly anticipated Liyue Dendro units, Lantern Rite is reasonable speculation for Baizhu and Yaoyao's release.[16] In 2023, Chinese New Year is on January 22nd, which would fall within Patch 3.4 after the adjusted patch dates.[1] Assuming Hu Tao does not rerun in 3.3.[11] Due to superstition regarding death-related motifs during Chinese New Year (previously acknowledged with Hu Tao's banner never occurring during the holiday), we would expect to see her banner during the second half of 3.4, which would not fall on the CNY holiday itself.[17] In 2023, Chinese New Year is on January 22nd, which would fall within Patch 3.4 after the adjusted patch dates.[1] Patch 3.4 would be the first anniversary of Shenhe's release.[18] In 2023, Chinese New Year is on January 22nd, which would fall within Patch 3.4 after the adjusted patch dates.[1] Though they both saw banners in 2.7, Xiao's banner is historically seen during Lantern Rite, while Yelan is a Liyue character who would not have yet received a rerun since her release.

For several reasons, we strongly speculate one or more upcoming patches will be shortened to realign with original timelines before the 2.7 delay.(SYP Rumor)[2] Nilou and Cyno are releasing around the same time.(Ubatcha) We also speculate this is when the remainder of the 3.0 Sumeru map (Desert portion) will be released, from where both Cyno and Candace originate.[3] "Wind and Wine" Mondstadt festival in 3.1.(Mero) Assuming Zhongli's rerun in 3.0,(Uncle Chasm) Kusanali's release in 3.2,[6] and Raiden's rerun during the 3.4 Inazuma event,[14] Venti rerunning during a Mondstadt Wine Festival is plausible. In addition, it would give all new players joining during 3.0 launch the chance to pull every Archon nearly one after the other.[4] "Wind and Wine" Mondstadt festival in 3.1.(Mero) We speculate Eula is more likely than Albedo due to Albedo's events occurring in December.[9] In addition, Mika may be related to Eula somehow.[3] + (SYP leak)[6] Assuming Nilou and Cyno release around the same time[2] and Scaramouche releases in 3.3,[9] Kusanali releasing in 3.2 makes more sense in the context of 3.2 being the climax/conclusion of Sumeru's story. However, we acknowledge this breaks the current pattern of Archons releasing on Patch x.1's.(SYP Sheet) Considering the Patch 2.6/2.7 delay, it is reasonable to speculate she was pushed to 3.2.[7] Childe would need a banner in 3.2 to rerun within a reasonable timeframe.[0] Due to Scaramouche's heavy story relevance,[9] we expect to see Childe's banner in the first half of 3.2.[8] Assuming Albedo does not rerun in 3.1.[5] As of Patch 3.2 start, Albedo would not have had a banner in 357 days. More importantly, the annual Dragonspine / Albedo Lore event has historically taken place in December.(Wiki - Patch 1.2; Wiki - Patch 2.3) Because of this, we expect to see an Albedo banner in the second half of 3.2.[9] In April, Uncle DD claimed that if Covid didn't affect production, the weekly boss in 3.1 would be Scaramouche.(Uncle DD) Considering the Patch 2.6/2.7 delay which followed, it is reasonable to speculate this event was pushed to 3.2. In addition, Childe also had a banner the same patch in which he was released as a boss.(Wiki - Patch 1.1) Though originally stated to be playable in 3.2 by Uncle DD,(Uncle DD) Mero has strongly implied that Scaramouche will be playable in a patch following his debut as a boss.(Mero)[10] Mero has claimed Faruzan will release at the same time as Scaramouche as a dedicated support for him.(Mero)[11] Inazuma event/festival in 3.3/3.4, in which Raiden may appear.(HXG 1; HXG 2) Assuming Zhongli's rerun in 3.0,(Uncle Chasm) Venti's rerun during the 3.1 Mondstadt event,[4] and Kusanali's release in 3.2,[6] Raiden rerunning during an Inazuma event is plausible. In addition, it would give all new players joining during 3.0 launch the chance to pull every Archon nearly one after the other.[12] Inazuma event/festival in 3.3/3.4, during which Ayaka receives a skin.(HXG 1; HXG 2; Mero 1) It is reasonable to speculate Ayaka will see a rerun along the release of her skin, as hers would be the first skin released for a limited 5✰ character.[13] Hu Tao would need a banner in 3.2 or 3.3 to rerun within a reasonable timeframe.[0] Due to superstition regarding death-related motifs during Chinese New Year (previously acknowledged with Hu Tao's banner never occurring during the holiday), we may see her rerun before the Lantern Rite patch.[14] Reruns of all other Inazuman characters are fair game. Raiden and Ayaka have entries above.[11][12] Longest since last rerun for other Inazuman characters would be as follows:
Yae > Kokomi > Ayato > Itto > Kazuha > Yoimiya
[15] Historically, Chinese New Year has overlapped with the Lantern Rite patch. In 2023, Chinese New Year is on January 22nd, which would fall within Patch 3.3, but we strongly speculate there will be adjustments to previous patches[0] that will ultimately place 3.4 within this window. As highly anticipated Liyue Dendro units, Lantern Rite is reasonable speculation for Baizhu and Yaoyao's release.[16] Assuming Hu Tao does not rerun in 3.3.[13] Hu Tao would need a banner in 3.2 or 3.3 to rerun within a reasonable timeframe.[0] Due to superstition regarding death-related motifs during Chinese New Year (previously acknowledged with Hu Tao's banner never occurring during the holiday), we would expect to see her banner during whichever patch half does not fall on the CNY holiday itself.[17] Patch 3.3 would be the anniversary of Shenhe's first release.[18] Historically, Xiao's banner is seen during Lantern Rite.

Alternatively, we would have already met Dehya during 3.0, so Dehya may release instead of or in addition to Candace.[3] Mika will appear during 3.1's Mondstadt Festival.(BLANK 1; BLANK 2) Due to the suspicious lack of playability information, we cannot yet speculate whether or not Mika will actually be released at the same time.[4] "Wind and Wine" Mondstadt festival in 3.1.(Mero) As of Patch 3.1 start, Venti would not have had a banner in 189 days.
