The newest update for Genshin Impact, Version 2.6 “Zephyr of the Violet Garden,” will be released tomorrow and will include the addition of Kamisato Ayato as a new character. The 5-star Hydro wielder is shown as peaceful and tranquil on the surface, but he has a number of schemes in the works under the surface. While an attempt is made on Ayato’s life, a new trailer of Genshin Impact exposes some of the things he has in mind.
Ayato wields a sword, and upon charging his basic attack, he may sprint forward with an Iai strike, which is a special attack. His Elemental Skill generates a water illusion that bursts whenever an opponent comes close to it or when its time expires, delivering Hydro damage to all enemies in the area where it is used. Ayato also enters the Takimeguri Kanka, where he attacks adversaries with fast blows that cause Hydro AoE damage to the surrounding area.
Finally, he has an Elemental Burst known as “Kamisato Art: Suiyuu,” which showers Bloomwater Blades on opponents within its radius while enhancing the damage done by one’s regular attacks. Keep an eye out for a new “Collected Miscellany” that should be available by tomorrow, which will go into further depth on Ayato’s skills.
