As the release date for Genshin Impact Version 2.6 draws closer, miHoYo shared details about the new 5-star sword, Haran Geppaku Futsu, that will appear in the game as a signature weapon for Ayato. However, its main stat and ability may be useful for other Sword users in a person’s party. Aside from the new sword, there will also be new artifact sets to farm for in Liyue.
Today, Paimon wants to introduce you to the brand-new equipment that will be appearing in Version 2.6! Come on, let's take a look~

The main stat for Haran Geppaku Futsu affects a character’s Crit Rate. It also passively increases all Elemental DMG by 12%. When other characters use Elemental Skills, the character with Haran Geppaku Futsu gets Wavespike stacks. Then, when the character with the sword uses their Elemental Skill, it uses up the Wavespike stacks to increase Normal Attack DMG by 20%. Previous signature weapons in Genshin Impact generally mesh well with a character’s kit, and the Haran Geppaku Futsu sword is no exception for Ayato. His Burst already buffs Normal Attack, whereas his Elemental Skill significantly alters the speed and DMG type of his Normal Attacks.
Other new equipment that will appear in Genshin Impact 2.6 aside from the Haran Geppaku Futsu are two artifact sets. The Lost Valley domain in the Chasm will be where players farm for either Vermillion Hereafter or Echoes of an Offering. Echoes of an Offering will also increase Normal Attack DMG as a four-set bonus. Meanwhile, Vermillion Hereafter increases ATK after an Elemental Burst, as well as further increases it as the character loses HP.
Genshin Impact Version 2.6 will go live on March 30, 2022. Genshin Impact is available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, Android, and iOS devices.
