As the 2.5 update of Genshin Impact is coming to an end, Hoyoverse took the opportunity to reveal the upcoming content of the 2.6 patch during its livestream. And it's safe to say that we'll have plenty to keep us busy during the month of April! You will finally be able to explore The Chasm, continue Archon's quest, discover Kamisato Ayato, Ayaka's brother, but also earn many Primogems and rewards thanks to the various events announced. We reveal in detail everything that the Genshin Impact 2.6 Update has in store for you. It will be released on Wednesday, March 30th.
Check out the trailer for the Genshin Impact 2.6 Update " Zephyr of the Violet Garden ":
3 5-star character banners for the Genshin Impact 2.6 Update
The Genshin Impact 2.6 Update starts very strong with a double banner. You will have the choice between a new character: Kamisato Ayato, Ayaka's older brother and Venti, the famous bard of Mondstadt.
Ayato's character event wish banner
The "Azure Excursion" banner offers you a chance to unlock Kamisato Ayato, a 5-star Hydro hero. He fights with a one-handed sword and is distinguished by his elegance. On top of that, the leader of the Kamisato clan promises to do a lot of damage with his elemental attack. You can find out more about him in his story quest.
Venti Event Wish Banner
The "Ballad in Goblets" banner brings Venti back to the forefront. This is your chance to unlock the Archon Anemo if you don't have it yet. We've been waiting for almost a year for its rerun!
In the second part of the Genshin Impac 2.6 Update (from April 19th), you will only have the banner of Kamisato Ayaka this time. The heroine Cryo appeared for the first time in the MAJ 2.0. She is part of the tier list of the best characters of Genshin Impact. Her rerun was thus particularly expected, especially since she will probably benefit from an excellent synergy with her big brother.
The weapon banner for the first part of patch 2.6 features "Haran Geppaku Futsu", Ayato's signature weapon, as well as Venti's bow.
A new zone in the Genshin Impact 2.6 Update: The Chasm
In addition to Ayato and his refined techniques, the main interest of the Genshin Impact 2.6 Update lies in The Chasm. Once sealed, it is now under attack by raiders and Fatuis. Fortunately, the Traveller is there to investigate. You can finally play in this area that has been visible for a while on the map!
Archon's Quest: Requiem of the Echoing Depths
This new zone is an excellent opportunity to discover more about Teyvat and especially the Chasm. You'll have to investigate what's going on in the deepest part of the Abyss, in the company of Dainseilf. This may be the opportunity to see the traveller's twin again...
Exploration of the Chasm
As usual, the exploration side will not be left out. In order to light your way, you will have to rely on a new gadget: "Lumenstone Adjuvant". The item allows you to light up dark areas. Upgrade it by collecting light stones. This will allow you to get rewards, like the Crimson Agate in the Dragonspine.
New Boss: Ruin Serpent
A new boss awaits you in the depths of the Chasm. The Ruin Serpent is a gigantic mechanical creature, reminiscent of the Perpetual Mechanical Array.
New dungeon in the Genshin Impact 2.6 Update
There is also a new dungeon: the "The Lost Valley". By completing the challenge, you will be able to obtain two new artifact sets:
- Echoes of an offering: The 2-coin set increasesATK by 18%. With 4 coins, normal attacks have a 36% chance of increasing DMG to 70% ofATK. If the effect is not triggered, you then have an additional 20% chance. You can use this every 0.2 seconds. We recommend this set for Ayato.
- Vermillion Hereafter: the 2-piece set also boosts ATK by 18%. The 4-piece set increases ATK by 8% after an elemental rampage, then by a further 10% each time HP drops. This bonus can be accumulated up to 4 times. This set is ideal for Xiao, who loses HP by using his elemental rampage.
The events of the Genshin Impact 2.6 Update
Genshin Impact Update 2.6 also features a number of events. You can collect as many Primogems as possible to summon Ayato, Venti or Ayaka.
The Irodori Festival
Inazuma has its own festival! The Irodori festival is organised by Ayato. Many rewards are waiting for you, including a free Xingqiu! The "Hues of the Violet Garden" event is divided into 4 activities:
- The Moon and Stars Inscribe: you will have to take pictures in Inazuma;
- Theater Mechanicus: Stage of Brilliance;
- Clash of Lone Blades: You will face a master swordsman, but without using elemental skills. Instead, you can parry his attacks;
- The Floral Courtyard: This challenge features ikebana, an art of flower arrangement.
Spices from the West
The second event will consist of preparing food, which you can offer to your characters in your Serenitea Pot to increase your affinity rate.
Make up two groups with your characters, but also test characters to fight enemies and get rewards.
Outside the Canvas, Inside the Lens
This fourth event will simply invite you to take pictures
Optimization of the mobile version of Genshin Impact
Update 2.6 will allow you to access the team menu directly by holding your finger on the icon of one of your characters.
