More ‘uncle leaks’ for Genshin Impact are here! The same “uncle” leaked the Honkai Impact 3rd crossover so you know you can trust the leak. However, don’t forget that this is just a leak and some things are bound to change. So, let’s get right into it then.
The 1.7 leak will have 4-star units and will feature new characters called Yomiya, Ayaka, Sayu, and Electro MC. There will also be two new artifact sets. But, tale everything said here with a pinch of salt.
Sayu is the new 4-star Anemo playable character that can use claymores. If you hold this character, she will turn into a ball and roll around for 20 seconds without using any stamina. Her elemental burst is capable of healing teammates below 70% health and dealing Anemo damage. Sayu’s second ascension talent transforms the elemental burst into an AoE attack. Sayu is one character we know most about, while the others enough data have not been uncovered yet.
After making her debut in the beta, Ayaka is finally coming to Genshin Impact in the new update. She is a 5-star Cryo Sword user from Inazuma. It is predicted that she will release on July 21, as a new banner after Kazuha. Ayaka’s normal attack animations are similar to that of Mona’s. She has other attacks that deal cryo damage and ice attacks. We can’t wait for the release of this long-awaited character!
The next leak talks about Tohma, a 4-star unit who we don’t know what looks like but we have a render of what he would look like. It is believed that Tohma has some connections to Ayaka and thus the leakers believe that they would be released at similar times and are both 4-star units. Current consensus is that Tohma is a polearm-user with Pyro Vision.
The leak on Twitter showed the old Electro animation but thanks to the uncle leaks we have some new information. Electro Traveler’s elemental skill and elemental burst will both be able to recharge energy for teammates. According to leakers, Electro MC will be stronger and better than both Anemo and Geo travelers. Similar to the other travelers, this one also will be unlocked by proceeding through the story.
Two New Artifact Sets
With the character releases, there’s also two new artifact sets that are coming out- the “Glacier and Snowfield” set and another set we don’t know the name of yet. The unnamed said is said to be related to energy recharge.
The 2-set bonus and 4-set bonus for the Glacier and Snowfield artifact is “Cryo DMG Bonus +15%” and “Increases Superconduct DMG by 100% respectively. For the unnamed set, the 2-set bonus increases energy recharge and the 4-set bonus increases burst damage.
This concludes our list of leaks for the 1.7 update for Genshin Impact. We expect it to come out near the end of July and as more leaks come, we will keep updating you. Till then, enjoy the game and check out our Genshin Impact 1.6 guide for outfits and weapons. Happy gaming!
