Genshin Impact 2.6 Leaks: First Phase Banners REVEALED, Ayato & Venti

Just some days before the Genshin Impact 2.6 Livestream, data miners announced the banners coming for the first phase of the Ver. 2.6.

Kamisato Ayato's arrival was expected; however, the big brother of Ayaka will have the company of Venti in a move that opens the possibilities of 4 characters coming in the next update.

Here are all the details and the rosters for the upcoming banners.

Release Date

Genshin Impact 2.6 will go live on March 30, 2022, and will last until May 10, 2022.

The first phase of the Ver. 2.6 runs from March 30, 2022, until April 20, 2022.

First Phase Banners

Genshin Impact 2.6 first phase will go back to the formula of the double banner.

The first two 5-star characters' features are the debut of Kamisato Ayato, the head of the Yashiro Commission, and Venti the Anemo Archon that is in a Banner for the third time.

The double banner in the first phase indicates we are getting two reruns for the second half.

First Weapon Banner

We also received information regarding the Epitome Invocation. Furthermore, the first weapon banner of Genshin Impact 2.6 will introduce a new 5-star sword Haran Tsukishiro Futsu, the signature weapon of Kamisato Ayato.

The sword is a Katana with different blue shades that resemble the ocean.

The Elegy for the End will be the second 5-star weapon. The bow is a powerful option that boosts character abilities and team DMG output.

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.

We don't have yet the 4-star completing the roster. However, this is an exciting banner. Both weapons are suitable for a diversity of characters.

Second Phase Banners

The second half of Genshin Impact 2.6 will start on April 20, 2022, even when there is some room for surprises. We can expect two characters' reruns.

Ayaka's return seems like a very safe bet. Sayu will most likely be one of the 4-star characters.

However, for the second banner, we have two 5-star Inazuma characters waiting for a rerun Yoimiya and Kazuha. So we have reason to believe it can be either of the two.


  • The Spiral Abyss Blessing will benefit the Anemo DMG
  • Kazuha is a trial character in the event Vibro Crystal research event.
  • Kazuha will be part of the Irodori Festival storyline.


  • The new artifact Echoes of an Offering will buff Normal Attacks DMG, the primary source of DMG for Yoimiya.
  • Yoimiya is a trial character in the event Vibro Crystal research event.
  • With a Festival happening in Inazuma, Yoimiya's fireworks are a must in the festivities.
