Genshin Impact: Leaks reveal kits and skillset of upcoming characters Yelan and Kuki

If a sleek Hydro-element operative and an electro-element ninja have been on your wishlist, now is the moment to start accumulating fate in anticipation of their arrival. While Yelan and Kuki are unlikely to appear in Genshin Impact anytime soon, the game’s version 2.6 update, Zephyr of the Violet Garden, has a new update and characters this week.

What do the rumors say about Yelan

For months, Yelan has been suspected to be a new character, with her model revealed during the Genshin Impact version 2.6 testing process. Many gamers feel she will not make the playable roster just yet due to her lack of knowledge. Also, her look confirms that she will be a new Hydro bow user, making her the second character to carry this weapon-element combo after Tartaglia.
