Genshin Impact is having a dream run, with the game shattering some mind-boggling records in the past few weeks. With some interesting updates slated to arrive in the coming days, these numbers seem to go even higher.

Genshin Impact 2.6 Leaks: New Artifact Set Reveal Massive Xiao Buff

According to a leak posted by Tz, the next artifact will be for Xiao, and it will possibly give a massive boost to Xiao in the game. Here are the complete details about the upcoming artifact.

  • 2-pc: This artifact set will give a +18% Attack bonus.
  • 4-pc: When casting an elemental burst, the character gains 8% Attack. Subsequently, for each time the character loses HP, an additional +10% attack is gained, for a maximum of 4 stacks, lasting 16 seconds. This is effect is lost the moment the character leaves the field.

Now if you look carefully, you will notice that this artifact is quite a massive upgrade from the previous one. If you used 2 Shimenawa and 2 Gladiators, you would be getting a 30% attack boost in the game. However, with this all-new artifact, players will be getting a massive 66% attack boost which is quite a lot to say the least. It is further noted that the exact nitty-gritty of the stats could be different, but the overall 66% attack boost is something that should not change after the arrival of the update.

The leaker goes on to say that if these numbers will be good enough for Xiao mains and whether it is a big enough buff. Well, from the looks of it, it seems like it is quite an interesting addition, and it will surely boost Xiao’s stature in the game to quite an extent. Whether these leaks turn out to be true remains to be seen.
