Genshin Impact beta leaks for update 2.6 reveal the in-game animation for one of the upcoming characters, the long-awaited Hydro sword user - Kamisato Ayato.
The official Genshin Impact Twitter account has finally confirmed that we are going to see a new addition to the character roster, the long-awaited Electro user Yae Miko. According to a leak on the Genshin_Impact_Leaks subreddit, Itto's ascension stat will be Crit Rate.
Recent leaks on Reddit have revealed more information about one of the upcoming Genshin Impact characters - Ayato. He will apparently be released after Yae Miko who is scheduled to arrive in update 2.5. This means that we can expect Ayato around mid-April. All we know about Ayato is that he is Ayaka's brother and the head of the Kamisato clan.
Another leak on the official Genshin Impact Leaks subreddit has apparently revealed Ayato's Elemental Burst animation.
A recent rumor on the same subreddit apparently reveals Ayato's Elemental Skill and Burst description:
- Elemental Skill (E) - When Ayato's skill is activated at the same time an enemy attacks him, he will gain one stack of "Kendo Pose"
- Elemental Burst (Q) - Ayato leaps in the air and slashes down draining one stack of Kendo Pose. It's recommended to use the Burst when Ayato gathers three stacks of "Kendo Pose"
Ayato is expected to be a Hydro character meaning that he should have great synergy with his sister Ayaka who's a Cryo user. His weapon of choice will be the sword and he will be the second Hydro sword user after Xingqiu. According to most leaks, he should arrive in update 2.6 which, according to miHoYo's usual update schedule should drop around April 10.
