Genshin Impact’s version 2.6 update will conclude with Kamisato Ayaka, alongside a 4-star supporting cast of rate-up characters that includes the long-forgotten Razor, much to some fans\’ delight. Additionally, the new region, The Chasm is open for players to explore and uncover, as well as the release of 5-Star Hydro character Kamisato Ayato, who has already proven to be a popular addition alongside a rate-up for Venti, the Anemo Archon.
Razor was last featured on a banner in version 1.6 in June 2021. This version had premiered with Genshin Impact’s “Golden Apple Archipelago” summer event and Inazuma’s 5-star Anemo Sword-user Kazuha. In addition to the event quest, Razor makes an appearance in the Archon Quest, “We Will Be Reunited.” As the Golden Apple Archipelago was a limited-time event, some players were only able to interact with Razor through his Story Quest and the 1.6 Archon Quest. After these few appearances, the main story advances players into the new region of Inazuma and its characters.
4-stars Electro Claymore-user Razor, Anemo Claymore-user Sayu, and Cryo Polearm-user Rosaria will be featured with Ayaka in the second half of version 2.6. The banner was revealed in an official announcement shared to Genshin Impact\’s official Twitter account. Whereas Sayu and Rosaria have been recently featured in previous updates, Razor’s reappearance proves to be a long-awaited occurrence. Including the concurrent banners, Razor has not been featured for at least thirteen banners spanning 7 version updates.

With the second banner of version 2.6, Genshin Impact players will have the chance to add Razor to their roster or obtain his Constellations to unlock his full potential. As one of the original characters who launched with the game, players may already be familiar with his character. Razor was abandoned as a baby and raised by a wolf pack in Wolvendom. Andrius, the Wolf of the North, took him in. With the help of the Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius, Varka, Razor begun to integrate into human society once more.
As new regions release, Mondstadt characters will need to be rotated with 4-star characters from other regions in order for desired characters to cycle through efficiently. The concurrent banners in Genshin Impact should help elusive 4-star characters such as Razor feature more consistently. Players who would like to pull for Razor will be able to try their luck on the last banner of 2.6. The second half of Genshin Impact 2.6 is expected to begin on April 19, 2022 and end on May 10, 2022.
