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

  • 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.

Both Banners will share the following 4-stars characters:

Yun Jin is back to a Banner just two updates after. She was released along with Shenhe in the ver. 2.4. Possibly for the strong synergy of this character and Ayato.

Xianling and Sucrose are becoming very recurrent members in Banners, despite being great characters, most players max their constellations.

Weapon Banner

The first Weapon Banner in Genshin Impact 2.6 will introduce a new weapon called: Haran Tsukishiro Futsu. This is the signature sword of Kamisato Ayato.

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

Passive (R5)
Haran Tsukishiro Futsu
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.
Elegy for the End
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.

Both weapons are decent picks, useful for a variety of characters. However, Elegy for the End is not the best option for Venti, and players can also substitute Ayato's Weapon for the Primordial Jade Cutter.
