Kamisato Ayato, new character 5 stars
One of the big new features of the update will be the introduction of the character Kamisato Ayato. The 5-star character in version 2.6 is the young Commission leader Yashiro and his clan.
In the Legendary Character Quest, players will be able to see how Ayato deals with problems and an unusual opportunity as Inazuma enters a new era of progress. In terms of combat, he wields a sword and wields a Hydro Vision. The fighter can inflict a large amount of damage in a short time and is able to increase the effects of his team’s normal attacks.
Players will be able to recruit Kamisato Ayato and Venti in the character event prayer. Also, in the second half of the update, Kamisato Ayaka will be back for the first time. The weapon event prayer will always bring Inazuma’s new 5-star sword, called “Futsu Moon Tsunami”
Cliff: the new area of Genshin Impact
As Liyue’s main source of ores, the Crag consists of a new purple-red zone with immeasurable underground depth. The point was closed due to a series of accidents and is now filled with monsters, treasure thieves and Fatui.
The new boss “Serpent of the Ruins” and the unknown dangers of the Abyss are also deep in the Crag, where the main story continues with the new Archon Quest “Requiem for the Deep Echoes”, along with Dainsleif.
At the same time, players will receive the Conduit Glimmerstone to light the way and unlock rewards, including a 4-Star Weapon Prototype and a new Calling Card.
A new event: the Irodori Festival
After the abolition of the Sakoku Decree, Inazuma and the Irodori Festival welcome various talents and visitors from all over Teyvat. Organized by the Yashiro Commission and Yae Miko, the Irodori Festival this year will invite Venti, Xingqiu and many other old acquaintances to celebrate art and culture.
At the same time, travelers will be able to earn rewards, whether it’s helping a Mondstadt bard take themed photos, completing stages in the upgraded Mechanicus theater, fighting a sword duel, or to participate in the art of Ikebana.
After completing all the challenges, players will have a chance to recruit the 4-star playable character, Xingqiu.
