Genshin Impact's next update will bring Kamisato Ayato to the roster of playable characters. As mentioned before, the update is set to launch on March 30th, and fans can look forward to Ayato's release as the first banner of 2.6.

Ayato is a powerful 5-star Hydro sword wielder who can cut through his enemies with ease thanks to his unique Hydro skills. Since he is releasing as a 5-star character on the featured banner, players will need plenty of Primogems if they don't have pity built up.

A little 🐦 told me Ayato will be the first of 2.6

The amount of Primogems that it will take to get Ayato is determined by a player's pity count and the last 5-star character they acquired.

To be certain that they can get Ayato, a player will want to have 28,800 Primogems in their account. This equates to 180 wishes, which is enough to guarantee summoning Ayato.

However, if a fan's last 5-star character was a non-featured one, they will only need 14,400 Primogems to get to the maximum 90 wishes.

What we know:- Ayato is the first banner of 2.6. (…)What we DON'T know:- 2.6 Reruns. (Please wait for potential clues from Beta.)- The 5✰ weapon on rate-up with Ayato's signature. (Unless leaked, we will not know until closer to 2.6.)

Soft pity is also a big factor, as the closer a player gets to 90, the fewer Primogems they will need to spend on a banner.

Gamers should keep a close eye on their pity count to make sure they get Kamisato Ayato. Soft pity begins around 75 wishes, which equates to 12,000 Primogems, so having at least this amount is recommended.
