The next two characters to become a part of this celebrated list can be Ganyu and Keqing. The Moonchase festival, that might revolve around Keqing’s story, will certainly be the ideal occasion to release these cosmetic items.

Other reports regarding the characters in Genshin Impact claim that Baal, the Electro archon, will most probably appear in the 1.7 update. However, this cameo will only be in the story, and it is unlikely that players will be able to unlock her in the near future.

Lastly, Genshin Impact will celebrate its one-year anniversary on September 28. miHoYo certainly has gigantic plans to make the best out of the occasion, and Ganyu’s re-run banner might be the first step in the right direction.

New weapons and artifacts in 1.6 update

Rumors suggest a bow named either Jade Vista, or Dreams of Dragonfell will arrive soon. Naturally, it will cater to the ongoing meta and will be the first five-star bow to offer Crit DMG. Even though this is not confirmed yet, there’s a high possibility that the Jade Vista/Dreams of Dragonfell will best suit an upcoming Inazuma character.

YouTuber Nixo talked about the brand-new weapon in the 1.6 update in a recent video.

The best places to use weapons like the Dreams of Dragonfell are domains. Fortunately, Inazuma is rumored to have three new artifact domains and six new artifact sets. Hence, there’s a lot of scope for players to unlock the new meta-favoring weapon and easily farm the artifacts.

It is worth noting that the entire Inazuma region will release in three separate updates. Accordingly, a new artifact domain and only two new artifact sets should be available with the 1.6 patch.
