Want to know more about the Genshin Impact Gorou banner? The Genshin Impact 2.0 update introduced us to a wealth of new Genshin Impact characters hailing from Inazuma. Alongside Ayaka, Sayu, and Yoimiya, who were available on banners in 2.0, there are several other NPCs in Inazuma who we expect to become playable characters in the future.

Gorou is a member of the resistance movement that opposes the vision hunt, and has an easy going personality. In-game voice lines expand on Gorou’s character further, with Kazuha, who was liberated by Gorou, saying that “he’s the type of person who says whatever is on his mind. He shares the highs and lows of his subordinate and is never afraid to draw his sword for the sake of a friend”.

He’s also an anthropomorphic chap with fox ears and a tail, similar to Diona, but you may be wondering when Gorou’s banner release date is and what star ranking he’ll be. Read on to learn more about this Geo character coming to the game in Genshin Impact 2.3.

Genshin Impact Gorou banner release date

Gorou’s release date is December 14, 2021. Gorou will be available on Itto’s banner, Oni’s Royale, during the second banner phase in Genshin Impact 2.3.

If you plan to add Gorou to your team, we’ve put together a guide to the best Gorou build.

Who is Gorou?

Gorou is a four star Geo bow wielder from the Inazuma region. This is a rather unique combination, as there aren’t too many characters in the game that use Geo and the bow. A screenshot also shows his appearance and hints at his signature bow: the Dreams of Dragonfell. It’s part of the same series of weapons as the Summit Shaper, The Unforged, Vortex Vanquisher, and the Memory of Dust.


Gorou’s primary abilities were shown off for the first time on the Genshin Impact 2.3 livestream.


  • Normal attack: Perform up to four consecutive strikes,
  • Charged attack: Hold for a charge attack and use Arataki Kesagiri slashes without using stamina
  • Plunging attack: A mid-air strike to the ground that damages opponents along the path and deals area-of-effect damage on impact.

Elemental skill: inuzaka all-round defence

Deals area-of-effect Geo damage and places a General’s War-Banner on the ground. Depending on the number of Geo characters you have in your party, the banner provides the following effects:

One Geo party member: grants a defence bonus
Two Geo party members: grants a resistance to interruption bonus
Three Geo party members: grants a Geo damage bonus

These effects stack on each other, so you gain all three effects with three Geo party members.

ELEMENTAL burst: juuga – forward unto victory

Gorou launches an area-of-effect Geo attack and creates a special field known as General’s Glory which buffs his Geo party members. The field moves with Gorou, and it spawns a Crystal Collapse every 1.5 seconds which deals area-of-effect damage.
