Another day, another Genshin leak.

Last year was filled with a large number of big-budget AAA titles, but Genshin Impact turned out to be the dark horse and managed to outshine others. Amassing a whopping player count of 40 million, the game continues to grow over the months.

The next major update that is set to arrive in the game is the 1.6 Update. There is a lot to look forward to in the update, ranging from a wide range of new weapons and items to quests and much more. Quite notable of all is the new character Kazuha.

Genshin Impact 1.7 Leaks: New Character Sayu and Four More Coming In Update

It’s been known for a while (thanks to leaks) that the next update might include the Inazuma region, and introduce the much coveted character, Ayaka, to the game. However, it seems like there is more to it.

According to a new leak on Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, Genshin Impact 1.7 will be adding as many as five new characters. That will definitely get quite a lot of fans excited for the upcoming update. Here are the complete details.


Ayaka’s constellations got reworked but it’s not confirmed how

He guesses either it’s a 80% damage increase (like Eula, Hu Tao and Xiao) or its a mechanics change (like Kazuha and Ganyu).


5 Star Pyro Bow

AA similar to other normal archers

Charged shots will result in AoE pyro damage

E will apply pyro to her normal attacks, becoming a gatling gun (similar to Hu Tao, where the E is an elementally infused version of their normal attacks).

Q is off-field with multiple hits, but it’s not too many hits and the pyro application isn’t that good.

Multipliers are significant though.

The hit frequency is roughly similar to Rosaria.

Exact talents and constellations unknown.

Electro MC

Electro MC’s Q and E will both do energy recharge for teammates

(In the uncles opinion) it will better than Anemo and Geo MC in terms of combat value

Apart from all these, it is also mentioned that there will also be one more 4 star character joining the game. As far as the credibility of the leak goes, it is noted that the source is the person who leaked Eula first, although there is no definite proof for that. While this is to good to be true, it is still very much possible given that it will be quite a major update.
