There have been a few leaks regarding new characters alongside reruns of old ones. Lumie, one of the reputed leakers, confirmed the rerun of Venti alongside Ayato in the first half of 2.6.

While these two characters will be the featured ones in the event wish, their respective 5-star weapons will have a rate-up as well. Ayato's Haran Tsukishiro Futsu Sword and Venti's Elegy of the End Bow will be on the weapon event wish banner.

Since Ayato and Venti will be arriving in the first half, players can expect both to drop with the update on March 30. Typically, the banners will last for approximately 20 days, until a new set gets featured in the second half.

With a little over two weeks remaining, Genshin Impact will conclude its update just a day short of the month's end. After the Three Gateway Offering event concludes in Enkanomiya, the official servers are expected to go into maintenance immediately at 3:00 PM PST.
