Although nothing has been outright confirmed to appear on the Genshin Impact 2.5 livestream, there are plenty of safe bets for what players can expect to see.

Some of the obvious options include:

  • Temporary Redeem Codes for free Primogems
  • Yae Miko showcase
  • Character and weapon banners
  • New events (such as Three Realms Gateway Offering)
  • New enemies (such as Shadowy Husks)
  • New weekly boss (the Raiden Shogun puppet)

However, some leaks suggest that the livestream could last for an hour and a half. Travelers should remember that the English Twitch livestream will begin on February 4, 2022, at 7:00 (UTC-5), while the YouTube broadcast will start a few hours later.

Each recent Special Program gives away three temporary Redeem Codes that awards players with 300 Primogems in total. Entering them is easy, but players won't know what the codes are until the livestream happens.

Yae Miko


Everything about Yae Miko has already been leaked. The above YouTube video does a good job showcasing her abilities in a normal setting, which helps players get a good idea of how she works as a unit. The gameplay footage shown here will likely be similar to what players can see in the upcoming Special Program.

Character and weapon banners

Can I be the next Jerma?

The Genshin Impact 2.5 livestream will likely unveil the upcoming character and weapon banners. Current leaks suggest that the first character banner with feature:

  • Yae Miko
  • Fischl
  • Diona
  • Thoma

The first weapon banner will feature:

  • Kagura's Verity
  • Primordial Jade Cutter
  • Eye of Perception
  • Rainslasher
  • Stringless

Other banners aren't confirmed. Most recent leaks point to the Raiden Shogun and Kokomi having reruns.

New events

Three Realms Gateway Offering (JP: 三界道饗祭): Exploration event in a darkened Enkanomiya, which doesn't share the exploration progress (e.g. waypoints) you gained in patch 2.4. The darkened Enkanomiya will have new chests, new puzzles, and new mobs (including Shadow Husks).

Several events have been leaked to appear in Genshin Impact 2.5:

  • Three Realms Gateway Offering
  • Of Drink A-Dreaming
  • Divine Ingenuity
  • Overflowing Mastery
  • Hyakunin Ikki

Most, if not all of them, should show up in some capacity in the upcoming livestream.

New enemies

More on the new trio Shadowy Husk enemiesStandard Bearer: An enigmatic, pitch-black standard-bearer. Its attacks will create shields for itself and nearby Shadowy Husks if they hit characters defended by shields.

There are three new enemies in Genshin Impact 2.5 that are intended to have anti-shield properties. They are:

  • Shadowy Husk: Standard Bearer (creates shields for itself and its allies)
  • Shadowy Husk: Line Breaker (heals itself and its allies)
  • Shadowy Husk: Defender (swaps weapons to a shield that blocks damage)

They will appear in the upcoming Spiral Abyss, along with a few select locations on Teyvat.

New weekly boss


Genshin Impact 2.5 leaks reveal there will be another Raiden Shogun boss. This time, it will be a weekly boss featuring a different form from what players saw in the past. One of the most noteworthy aspects about this new boss is that she has an attack that will instantly defeat a character, regardless of any shields of their HP.
