Lately, miHoYo has been cracking down on leakers to prevent them from leaking stuff about the upcoming updates. miHoYo has sued the Chinese video site Bilibili, in order to find 11 different leakers. The Genshin Impact leaking community is quite active, and these measures have forced a number of leakers to leave the scene.

Genshin Impact Leak Reveals New Hydro Character Ayato Details

Some leakers have announced a few big leaks before leaving, as a parting gift to their fans. One such interesting leak surfaces from popular Genshin Impact leaker Sukuna. In a tweet, Sukuna mentions some significant chunks of information about some unreleased characters.

According to the leak, there is a new character Ayato in the works. Ayato is the elder brother of the already released character Ayaka, and is the head of Kamisato Clan, and also serves as the Yashiro Commissioner. Here is what the leak states.

  • Ayato will be a hydro claymore character that can change to sword stance with his elemental skill
  • Ayato was designed based on Zhongli.
  • Ayato’s elemental burst in his claymore form will create a vortex that can pull enemies in, and constantly applying Hydro on the enemies. Characters within the vortex AOE will receive a 40% Hydro DMG bonus

This gives us a lot of information about the character and many fans are looking forward to it now, thanks to its resemblance with Zhongli. We are yet to see the character in the game but three characters, Ayaka, Raiden, and Sayu have mentioned him in the game. It’ll be interesting to see when Ayato releases in the game.
