New Banners: Drifting Luminescence and Epitome Invocation

The arrival of a new character means a new banner, and very often a new weapon. That's exactly what we'll get starting on September 21.

Kokomi, Rosaria, Beidou, and Xingqiu are the featured characters for the Drifting Luminescence banner, while Epitome Invocation could reward you with the five-star Everlasting Moonglow catalyst or Primordial Jade Cutter sword.
