The next set of Genshin Impact 2.6 banners is just one week away, and that means the Ayaka rerun is on the horizon. Ayaka is the most popular DPS in the current meta, so this is not one to miss!

After the successful launch of her brother Kamisato Ayato as a playable character, Kamisato Ayaka is back in a very exciting banner. The last time players were able to wish for her was back in Genshin Impact 2.0.

With that, let's dive into everything that's just been revealed about the Genshin Impact Ayaka banner and more for vers. 2.6.

Release Date

Genshin Impact 2.6 second phase banners will go live on Wednesday, April 20th at 6 pm on the Chinese and Asian Servers. (Chinese Standard Time).

This breaks down to the following release times in other regions:

  • April 20, 5pm GMT
  • April 20, 6pm EST
  • April 20, 3pm PST

Genshin Impact 2.6 Banners: Phase 2

Genshin Impact 2.6 is an exceptional case where only one rerun is featured in the second phase.

But it is not just a regular rerun, Ayaka was introduced to the community since the Beta Version, and her popularity has increased since then. She is a very reliable DPS with unique abilities.

KAMISATO AYAKA: Another Katana User in Genshin Impact

The following banners will be available during the last three weeks of version 2.6:

The Heron Court (Ayaka Banner)

  • The Heron Court banner will feature the rerun of Kamisato Ayaka - a 5-star Cryo Sword Character.

and the following 4-stars characters:

  • Rosaria- 4-star Cryo, Polearm User
  • Sayu - 4-star Anemo, Claymore User
  • Razor - 4-star Electro, Claymore User.

Razor is finally back in a banner. Unfortunately, the last time he was featured was back in July 2011. Something unusual considering the small pool of 4-star characters in the game.

The Roster of 4-star characters in the banner is not ideal as most of them are not very useful in the current meta. But players will still want to make sure not to miss the return of Ayaka.

Weapon Banner

The Second Weapon Banner in Genshin Impact 2.6 will include the rerun of the Mistsplitter Reforged, the signature sword of Ayaka.

The claymore The Unforged will be the second weapon feature in the first weapon banner of Genshin Impact 2.6.

Secondary Stat
Passive (R5)
Mistsplitter Reforged
Crit. DMG
ain 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.
The Unforged
Increases Shield Strength by 40%. Scoring hits on opponents increases ATK by 8% for 8s. Max 5 stacks. Can only occur once every 0.3s. While protected by a shield, this ATK increase effect is increased by 100%.

The following 4-stars complete the second weapon banner:

  • Favonius Lance - Polearm
  • Favonius Codex - Catalyst
  • The Bell - Claymore
  • Favonius Sword - Sword
  • Favonius Warbow - Bow

Again the Mistsplitter Reforged is great not only for Ayaka, while the Claymore The Unforged is an underwhelmed weapon and the Favonius series are very common.

Only players very interested in the Mistsplitter should pull for this banner.
