Last Updated:

The new Genshin Impact 2.6 update is almost with us and Genshiners (I’ve made that up yes, but I quite like it) are ready to explore all the new goodies about to be thrown at them. So what can we expect, what are we going to face and more importantly, when can we get it?

When is Genshin Impact 2.6 update out?

March the 30th is the day so we are literally minutes away at this stage. Phase one will contain both Ayoto’s banner and Venti’s re-run. We will wait until the second phase, towards the end of April for the return of Ayaka.

What new characters are in Genshin Impact 2.6?

Genshin Impact 2.6 will bring us one new playable character and a couple of reruns. The new character is Ayato – the current head of the Kamisato clan and the brother of Ayaka.

The 2.6 reruns will be Venti and the aforementioned Ayaka which will come later in the update cycle. This is actually Venti’s third rerun so may well be the last time we see them. Wishing on Venti’s banner is from March 30th.

The second rerun is Ayaka who is back for a first one here. Known as one of the most damaging characters in the game, maybe will be delighted to see her back.

What new weapons are in Genshin Impact 2.6?

We have a new five-star sword in the 2.6 update and that is the Harran Geppaku Futsu – a famed work by the Futsu line of smiths. The name Haran comes from the manner in which it resembles the violent, rolling waves. Apparently.

What new artifacts are in Genshin Impact 2.6?

We have a couple of artifacts permanently arriving with the 2.6 update, the pick of the bunch being.

Vermillion Hereafter

  • Two-piece: provides a +18% attack
  • Four-piece: After using elemental burst, this character will gain the Nascent Light effect, increasing their attack by 8% for 16 seconds. When the character’s HP decreases, their attack will further increase by 10%. This increase can occur a maximum of four times, and increase every 0.8 seconds. Nascent Light will be dispelled when a character leaves the field or when another elemental burst is used.

Genshin Impact 2.6 new regions

The Chasm is the new region arriving in the 2.6 update. We have been aware of the area for ages as it has been on the map for an eternity but we have never previously been able to visit it. That all changes today so get ready to go exploring.

Are there any new monsters in Genshin Impact 2.6?

Do not be disappointed as the 2.6 revision is throwing in the Floating Hydro Fungus and the more formidable sounding Black Serpent Knight Windcutter – and none of those four words sound good for us!

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
