Kamisato Ayato, Venti, Ayaka, Kazuha & Latest News


Genshin Impact 2.6 is almost here, and Hoyoverse (formerly miHoYo) decided to shake things up again.

Kamisato Ayato’s big debut will go in Tandem with Venti’s second rerun. And, we are only receiving one rerun in the second Phase.

Ayaka will be the main star of the second part of Version 2.6 in a surprising move as it is the first time a rerun is the only banner since double banners were introduced.

Without further ado, here is everything we know about the upcoming banners.

Release Date

Genshin Impact 2.6 is expected to go live on March 30, 2022, running until May 10, 2022.

Every Genshin Impact update runs a six-week cycle, divided into two phases. So we’ll see a set of Banners on the update’s launch and another after three weeks.

First Phase Banners

Genshin Impact 2.6 first half will have two banners that will run for three weeks:

  • Azure Excursion will feature the new character Kamisato Ayato – a 5-star Hydro Sword Character.
  • Ballad in Goblets will feature the second rerun of Venti – a 5-star Anemo Bow Character.

Kamisato Ayato is the only new character in Genshin Impact 2.6, and this will be the third appearance of Venti in a banner.

Weapon Banner

So far, we have information on a new 5-star weapon coming to Genshin Impact 2.6. The signature sword of Kamisato Ayato a katana called Haran Tsukishiro Futsu.

The bow Elegy For the End will be the second weapon feature in the first weapon banner of Genshin Impact 2.6.





Passive (R5)
5-star Haran Tsukishiro Futsu Sword Crit. Rate When using players, obtain 24% All Elemental DMG Bonus. When other nearby party members’ Normal Attacks hit opponents, the character equipping this weapon will gain one stack of Wavespike. Max 5 stacks. This effect can be triggered once every 0.2s. When the character equipping this weapon uses an Elemental Skill, all stacks of Wavespike will be consumed to gain Ripping Upheaval.
5-star Elegy for the End Bow Energy Recharge Increases Elemental Mastery by 120. When the Elemental Skills or Elemental Bursts of the character wielding this weapon hit opponents, that character gains a Sigil of Remembrance. This effect can be triggered once every 0.2s and can be triggered even if said character is not on the field. When you possess 4 Sigils of Remembrance, all of them will be consumed and all nearby party members will obtain the “Millennial Movement: Farewell Song” effect for 12s. “Millennial Movement: Farewell Song” increases Elemental Mastery by 200 and increases ATK by 40%. Once this effect is triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Remembrance for 20s.

Second Phase Banners

For the second half of Genshin Impact 2.6, arriving on April 20, 2022, we are receiving one rerun banner:

  • The Heron’s Court will feature the rerun of Kamisato Ayaka – a 5-star Cryo Sword character.

Second Weapon Banner

Ayaka’s rerun was confirmed by the inclusion of her chibi version in the ads of the ver. 2.6 Livestream.

With Ayaka rerun, it is almost certainly the second weapon banner that will include the 5-star Sword Mistsplitter Reforged.





Passive (R5)
5-star Mistsplitter Reforged Sword Crit. DMG Gain a 24% Elemental DMG Bonus for all elements and receive the might of the Mistsplitter’s Emblem. At stack levels 1/2/3, Mistsplitter’s Emblem provides a 16/32/56% Elemental DMG Bonus for the character’s Elemental Type. The character will obtain 1 stack of Mistsplitter’s Emblem in each of the following scenarios: Normal Attack deals Elemental DMG (stack lasts 5s), casting Elemental Burst (stack lasts 10s); Energy is less than 100% (stack disappears when Energy is full). Each stack’s duration is calculated independently.

Kazuha & Yoimiya

Surprisingly, Genshin Impact 2.6 will have only one rerun for the second phase. This is a big blow for Kazuha and Yoimiya fans.

Both characters are currently the only 5-stars characters from Inazuma release before the first anniversary, without a rerun.

Kazuha is currently one of the best characters in the game. However, a lot of players decided to skip his banner. Apparently, players misunderstood his abilities and decided better to wait for Ayaka.

In the case of Yoimiya, she is not a very popular character due to her single target-oriented playstyle. But, the game is buffing Normal Attacks characters, and Yoimiya might be set for an epic comeback.

Genshin Impact 2.7 may focus on bow characters, with Yelan and Yomiya as the main stars. However, it is uncertain if Kazuha will return soon.
