Fire and Ice
Seems the leakers are hard at work again, because there’s been tips from some fairly reliable sources on what we’re gonna be getting for the 1.7 patch! Genshin Impact is no stranger to leaks and rumors, but they’ve proven to be more accurate than not so far. Still, take what I am about to tell you with a grain of salt.
Most of you have been clamoring for Ayaka, the five-star cryo sword maiden, and your wishes will soon be granted.
After Kazuha has had his run, Ayaka will either be directly after him, or one more away from that. There’s also a possibility of a five-star Hydro claymore user, which absolutely would be a welcome addition, but we won’t be seeing that until the later Inazuma patches. We don’t have very many Hydro users, and, with any luck, we’ll get to see him show up along the patches for Inazuma.
Adding to that, we are looking at the other banner for 1.6 to be Yoimiya, a five-star pyro bow user! As much as it saddens me to see, Amber will be all but replaced by this one, taken the developers don’t plan on reworking her in the future. I certainly would welcome more bow users, as we’ve had a bit of a shortage of those for a while.
Even better, there are rumors of what her abilities will be! Take this with a heap of salt, but this picture is what we’ve got to work with until we see 1.7 drop.
Now for the bad news. It looks like we might be waiting a while before we see a Ganyu rerun. Leakers are estimating about 2-3 patches out. Xiao probably won’t be seen even longer, though people are optimistic that he’ll eventually show up. Better late than never.

That’s all, for now, folks, keep your eyes peeled for all the new goodies to come with Inazuma for Genshin Impact! This is Cory from HPP, signing off!
