Ayaka is probably one of the most anticipated characters in Genshin Impact. It seems like we'll finally have the option to get her as the first character of update 2.0 alongside three other four-star characters.

Genshin Impact update 1.6 is set to be released around July 21 and we already know that the first banner will bring one of the fan-favourite characters - Ayaka.

One of the most frequently asked questions is, who will be the four-star characters joining Ayaka's on the banner. Considering that he's become one of the fan-favourite characters, we could expect a slightly weaker four-star lineup. Having a character on a banner will significantly increase his drop rate for its duration.

Klee has always been one of the fan-favourite characters in the game and her first banner appearance still holds the record in terms of sales. Update 1.6 could become one of the biggest updates in the game considering that previous leaks already hinted that we might see the new region Inazuma introduced to the game.

As for the prediction, there are four rules by which four-star characters are appearing on the banner:

  • First of all, the banner cannot include the starting characters Amber, Keaya or Lisa
  • Characters cannot appear two patches in a row
  • There has to be at least one four-star character that uses the same talent ascension books as the main five-star
  • Four-star characters usually don't share the same elements

The third rule usually tells us which character will be certainly be featured on the banner but considering that no four-star character shares the same book talent as Ayaka, this list should be taken with a grain of salt.

According to the rules, the upcoming Ayaka banner should include the following characters:

  • Ayaka
  • Ningguang
  • Chongyun
  • Yanfei
