The latest Genshin Impact 1.7 leaks reveal the release date of Sayu, Yoimiya, and Ayaka's banner ahead of the upcoming update.
Genshin Impact usually introduces two character banners with each major update. One of them usually reruns an old 5-star unit, while the other is guaranteed to feature a new character.
However, this is not the case with the upcoming banners in the Genshin Impact 1.7/2.0 update. According to leaks, the next major patch may introduce two new character banners featuring Ayaka and Yoimiya in July and August, respectively.
Sayu, Yoimiya and Ayaka banners to be released in July and August, according to new Genshin Impact 1.7 leaks
The leak comes from Lumie, one of the most credible sources of Genshin impact leaks on Twitter. According to Lumie, the Genshin Impact 1.7/2.0 beta reveals possible Ayaka and Yoimiya banner release dates.
According to leaked beta data, Genshin Impact will release the Ayaka banner on July 21 featuring the 5-star Cryo unit, Kamisato Ayaka. The next rate-up banner featuring Yoimiya and Sayu will be released on August 10, 2021.
It's surprising how the developers have put together two of the most anticipated Genshin Impact 1.7 characters, Yoimiya and Sayu, in the same banner.
According to the leaks, Yoimiya is a 5-star Pyro character specializing in ranged attacks, while Sayu is a 4-star Anemo character specializing in melee attacks with a claymore. Sayu and Yoimiya's gameplay is shown in the following attachments.
How the banner order might affect F2P players in Genshin Impact 1.7 update
If the leak turns out to be accurate, the F2P (Free to play) players willing to wish on two of the upcoming three banners will have to wait. The banner order will determine if the players will have enough Primogems left after the Kazuha banner expires, which will be released on June 28.
In simpler words, there must be players determined enough to pull on both the Kazuha banner in the current version and the Yoimiya banner in the Genshin Impact 1.7 update.
However, it won't be possible for them if MiHoYo alters the release order of the banners in V1.7 and releases Yoimiya just after Kazuha. Therefore, players are advised to wait for the official announcement in version 1.7/2.0 preview livestream before planning their actions.
