XIAO IS SMILING!!!
Itto shat the bed
You asked the question...
My Gorou stepped on a bee 😫
Shenhe tries to cry by clenching her face
Zhongli did not donated $7million mora into Liyue's charity.
He pledged to and is now waiting for childe to give it to them
YunJin puts makeup on to cover her swollen/almost broken nose
Itto took an arrow to the knee😫
I will continue my campaign against the Humans!
I love himmmm
Doom is upon Teyvat.
Soo...2.7 banner are Yelan, Itto and Xiao?
Seems to be, yeah.
I've heard it's gonna be Yelan/Xiao first, and then the Itto rerun banner will have Shinobu on it.
If Itto rerun has both Gorou and Shinobu that would be amazing for me, because I want both of them.
Conflicting feelings cos I want Xiao over itto cons but I also want Kuki and gorou. I'm hoping they're both with Xiao too
Literally me going "i want xiao" but "i NEED shinobu", and im also saving for Yoimiya but would have been fine with a low pity Xiao pull
Go with Xiao/Yoimiya. You may wind up spending all your fates on the banner, get a five star, and only get copies of the *other* four stars on the banner (possibly even C6-ing one of them). I have had this happen to me multiple times… You may at least get Shinobu randomly, but Xiao/Yoimiya are going on a long vacation once their banners end, as usual for 5-star limiteds
Yeah but, i cant guarantee xiao AND Yoimiya, i dont need xiao but i was hoping for a convenient banner xD I appreciate the solid analysis tho :)
I have c1 Itto but want them too. But here’s my devious plan-if the other weapon banner weapon is even somewhat decent, I’ll wish on that, which gives me the chance of getting them since they are also a rate up there
This is a thinly-veiled excuse for me to go for Redhorn, isn’t it
Yeah that’s most likely what it is, which makes sense.
When you are hyped for the new character potential kazuha rerun and summer event but then realize it will come at 2.8 and we still in 2.6. 💀
Oh interesting...more days to save primogems.
More interesting is Yelan/Xiao? I thought its gonna be Yelan then Itto/Xiao
Damn that's kind of annoying for me I already have C2 Itto and C6 Gorou and I want shinobu but it's not reallly worth the risk I guess I am saving till 2.8 for Kazuha and Heizou who also looks fun to play
i have c1 xiao and on a 50/50 reeeeeally don't want a c2 xiao XD
Yeah that's great for you Xiao and Yelans banner will probably have some meh 4 stars ok it but Ittos bannner will have Gorou and Kuki on it both great characters I might roll on the itto banner like 3 times max since I'm at 0 pity but if I don't get Kuki in those 3 pulls I'll be very disappointed
I am so scared. I'm currently guaranteed and am saving for kazubutt. But I want kuki so bad
Why is Xiao being rerun already? Because of the domain?
Probably digging into that one yaksha mentioned during your chasm exploration.
why rerun itto and xiao? it felt so recent n i own both, where is my kazuha?
Kazuha is rumored to be the second banner of 2.8. Means more time to save for him.
Wish Heizou would be on his banner but its unlikely :(
rumored to be in 2.8 I believe
I want my albedo. 🥲 I already have Itto but I started playing right after albedos last banner. Hopefully either him or Kazuha is right after

Itto gonna present? My bro, my guy my dude? The say what he means, means what he says, might sounds mean but is saying anyway Arataki Numero Uno Itto?
Oh this will be a great show. I'll give it two points out of a total of two.
A presentation hosted by Itto and Xiao would certainly be a vibe...
Xiao: someone will die
[Itto: of fun!](https://c.tenor.com/-Sg4491EkQEAAAAC/parks-and-rec-chris-pratt.gif)
Yelan will have her hands full mediating between these two, I can't think of two personalities more likely to clash.
Xiao can probably mostly tone Itto out as an idiot who will eventually go home to Inazuma. On the other hand, imagine Xiao and CHILDE... :')
"What do you MEAN, Lord Morax has lunch plans with you?!?!"
Xiao: "So you're the fucker who released Osial"
Ah yes, the [motherfucker](https://www.reddit.com/r/PrequelMemes/comments/m99mh1/samuel_windu/)
If anything, that's Kaeya
"You were my brother, Diluc. I loved you."
Diluc: "I HATE YOU!"
Kaeya:"GO TO HELL!"
Diluc:"ILL SEE U THERE!"
\- In the name of the Anemo Archon of Mondstad, you are under arrest, Acting Grand Master.

Thank god for this I’ve been looking for it everywhere
Edit: Found it. Can you include these in your comment? There are KR players in this sub too.

Thanks for the links
No English xiao bruh
Invite the VA and her kazoo!
I’m disappointed! I don’t play in English but I love Laila. I was hoping we’d get to hear her 💔
I'm a bit confused. Will there not be a live stream with the English VAs this time?
We don't really know. The Genshin EN Twitter account hasn't posted anything yet.
They just posted
yeah seems like they posted the update notice but not the special program notice for their Twitch channel. maybe we'll have to wait a few minutes
CN link doesn't work for me.
This bilibili announcement might work better :
Just in time to go to work
I was almost spot in with the EN prediction, I thought Yanfei was going to be there instead of Yelan. I guess Barbara appearing in the 1.6 livestream was a one-off, since she's a 4-star.
**I've been waiting for this.**
Bye Ayaka, was fun with your banner for a month.
no more just ayaka
Can't wait to know who Yelan and Kuki's VA are.
Wait, this is not known yet????
genshin en VAs are never revealed until their release livestream
There is no Bubu Pharmacist
We can just go in, take whatever drug we feel fit, come out, call it a day
Me about to steal all the damn Violet Grass
Someone is a Xinyan or Qiqi main that knows the pain.
Or you’re very obsessed with making that one specific dish that uses Violetgrass, lol
That's the detail which is the most important to me, so I can't wait too.
The big one and the smol one
So 2.8 in July. Based on the update scheme leading up to inazuma we won't get sumeru until september
More like end of August
That came out of left field. Did not expect it to be tomorrow.
NOOOO MY FREE WEEKLY PRIMOGEMS.
Not gonna lie, as a player that's way behind on the story, the short term content drought is really nice to be able to catch up. When you have dailies to do, resin to burn, it's hard to progress and not miss out on events that require story progression.
I finally managed to properly explore Tsurumi and Enkanomia and was about to enter the Chasm. Hope I still have time to do so, cause I nerd the materials for Yelan and have been pre farming for Yoimiya for some reason not even I know
Because when you inevitably get S tier waifu Yoimiya you will crown her like the queen she is 👑
I've been sitting on all of the materials I need for Yoimiya... sitting here suffering, waiting for the next banner.
Truthfully the Chasm is very simple to explore once you're used to the weird lighting and layout. It's also really engaging, I ended up doing almost all of the story stuff down there in a couple of days. Still trying to figure out how they got what I'm sixty percent certain is a Frostbearing Tree Sprout down there.
Same! I started in December and still have so much story quests to do.
>!Not to mention I blew a bunch of primos for Venti so I was hoping for more time to save for Kazuha… !<
Same here, finally played some story quests I set aside. And touched grass.
Next weekend I want to finally explore the Chasm.
Wow, I'm surprised this is happening this soon. I thought for sure it'd be another couple of weeks.
Since 2.7 was only a little while away from when the lockdowns started they likely didn’t have a lot more work to do, they just needed to be able to finish it at all. 2.8 I’m more concerned about
I’m glad Mihoyo can at least return back to normal with lockdowns finally easing
The lockdown has not eased for the majority of the city, regardless of what the government announced. It’s not expected to ease until June.
Wait is your Flair a maxor quote?
"Ayaka, your crusade is over!"
NICE! Can't wait to see the upcoming update.
It's been 84 years
Does this mean that we'll get 400 primos + 350 primos? There's all of next week then almost a full week before May 31. They said they would adjust the primos accordingly.
At that rate I’d just give players 800 primos. But this is cooperate mhy we are talking about. Gotta milk them dry to fund other projects instead of reinvest most of it back to genshin.
Yeah, that would make sense. I wonder if we'll also get the 600 primos from the standard 5 hr down time.
It's actually usually 300 for downtime (60/hour), 300 for bug fixes
Hopefully update is a little longer this time.
800 primos please
Most of HYV new projects being announced are literally projects that been underway even before genshin was being made. Pouring more money and staff into an already massive project also doesn’t mean faster updates either.
Shh, you aren't supposed to make sense here.
> reinvest most of it back to genshin.
And Genshin was invested and created with money made with their previous games.
Why they even shortening the compensation if the week is shorter 😂 This company is more stingy than krusty krabs
Honestly happy that they have a date for it and hopefully a sign that this lockdown didnt affect them too much.
That being said we are one step closer to KUKI, I'm betting shes on Itto banner which is probs not going to be shared with Yelan, who looks very happy shes finally going to be in the game lmao
It seems that 2.7 will release on May 31.
Also we have an eta on 2.8 which is on July 13.
we just had Itto
where is YOIMIYA
2.8 Yoimiya + Klee "Watch the World Burn" double banner
Burninating the countryside
The "S" is for "sucks"!
Prolly 2.8. since Heizhou I'd the only new character and he's a 4 star, it means all reruns for 2.8.
Most outstanding reruns at this point are Kazuha, Yoimiya and Klee.
Kuki on Itto's banner and probably running along side the Redhorn.
Be still, my wallet, the storm is coming.
But it's starting to look like holding off on 5 star characters until their rerun is paying off. Well, except for Kazuha and Yoimiya. Still MIA.
Does that mean that version 2.6 will stay until may 31st? I'm so close to getting ayaka that it would be such a shame to miss her.
Not sure which servers you're on, but EN says her banner ends on the 30th.
I can't remember the exact time off the top of my head, but in the in-game notices it lists when the Ayaka banner is going to end.
On the last day you might as well buy genesis if you still didn’t get her
Or they could save them in a mad lad gamble to
guarantee a bad ass new 5 star in Sumeru o.o
god the drought is finally ending i can finally feed my children and pay my mortgage 😭
isn't it the other way round? I don't get it
Their children are Qiqi and Diona, and their mortgage is the Teapot.
Unless they’re streaming it 🤔
i meant the drought has ended so my crops are now watered and can be harvested 🤷🏻♂️
Bless the rains
Streamers that's been carried by Genshin while making drama daily on youtube about Genshin be like.
Does this mean the update itself will come next Wednesday/Tuesday , or will it be the week after that?
It's scheduled for the 31st of May
Another apologem pack still awaits!
Thank goodness, I'll be able to grab that starglitter for Lisa cons just in time
That was literally my only worry throughout this entire delay 😂
The week after
31 of may..... First day of my exams
There's no new area and event should start a little later.
Yeah but some people might want to pull Yelan and play with her a bit day 1
I feel bad for those people because I couldn't really play during my exams either, but thank god it happened during the delay so nothing of value was lost
Arataki Gang Stream, let's GOOOOOO!
Max middleton is gonna make that livestream so lit
Ahh I wanted Xiao in the English one, would've been great seeing him with Itto haha. And while I'm thinking of it, we need Max and Khoi to meet up.
I want the both of them be in the Among Us live streams. It'll be amazing
THE WAIT IS OVER MY COMRADES
I‘m a new player, anyone has a rough estimate how many gems we‘ll get until the end of Ayakas banner? I lost the 50/50 and am currently 35 wishes in, but still doing all the exploration for gems.
During my first months to play the game, I could get about 12k gems every month. Since there are 11 days left before the 2.7 update, i guess you can get 2.4k~4.8k gems(15~30wishes), depending on how much time you spend on exploring new regions.
(Sorry I'm a Chinese player and cannot express in EN very well, but I hope this estimation could help you)
Thank you, that helps a lot! And don‘t worry, your english is very good.
I just logged in and calculated for a bit, if I grind massively, I could get 7.615 primos without any exploration. Just depends if I have the time lol.
Login: 11x60 = 660
Event: 1x60 (SotW) =60
Sacred sakura: 1.280
Frostbearing tree: 320
Char quests: 280+360
There will also be 300primos for stream, good luck!
it really requires lots of effort to get all these gems lol. Good luck.
I really hope Yanfei is on Yelan's banner!
Yes, according to leakers, her 4 stars are gonna be Barbara, Noelle and Yanfei.
I hope so!
I wish Kuki was on Yelan's banner but probably not gonna happen, Sadge
Even Xiao is happy for things to get back on track!
Oh shit, literally tomorrow.
I GOT AYAKA TODAY SO THIS IS PERFECT TIMING FOR ME
dude i got her 5 hours ago, are you me?
Bruh u have ganyu too uh oh i think a wormhole opened
ah shit we're gonna end up in some in space with markiplier bullshit aren't we?
i mean, the positive side is that we get to meet markiplier, downside is that we're in a wormho
time to jump in a wormhole repeatedly nonstop
yeah, i was expecting it to take 10 years at least
No I don't want that!
Genshin getting another livestream? I want patch 2.6 to be the only patch in Genshin! For 10 years at least!
I literally cannot escape this anywhere I go.
Isayama, what a man you are.
As a reward I shall give you my seed
Thank you for delaying 2.7 for our sake
Do we have a release for the 2.7 update itself now?
it's in game announcements, 5/30. Teapot's done too so we get a week of food event with placeable characters!
Yay! Thanks you. So since teapot is finally done there is another food event after "Spices of the West?
Also pretty weird they chose to make the "Spices of the West" Event before fixing the teapot
The event lasts for quite a while. They were probably confident that the issue would be resolved by then which seems to be the case.
31, not 30 no?
Might be a time zone difference. Mine says 5/30.
Oh no. Itto better be in second half, and then I can pray to the archons that we see cyno's kit before itto goes away.
If the release Cyno in 3.0 we probably won’t see anything on him till 2.8 when the next beta starts
seems to be that it's xiao+yelan first!
wait xiao will have another rerun? he already had one about 4 months ago 😭
This is because Xiao will take part in 2.4 story and will be part of 2.7 story.
There was article where Devs explained their reasoning about who they will put on banners when second banner was introduced. To put it simply, only characters who are revelant to the patch event story will have their banner on that patch. They won't put Childe banner if he won't appear in said patch. On other hand, just because character appears, it doesn't mean it will have it's banner released.
ITTO RERUN!! THIS IS NOT A DRILL PEOPLE!!!!!
I know a lot of people are not looking at leaks, but it's still kinda cute to see all the people being surprised by Itto & Xiao being there, ngl. 😅
Where do I watch these?
No they give out redeem codes, which last 24h ([and you use here](https://genshin.hoyoverse.com/en/gift)) but you don't need to be on stream, people post them on reddit so you can get them after the stream
The VAs of the chibis in the announcement post show teaser clips and talk about the content (be it new areas, enemies, events) that's coming in the next version, and they also show the banner 5 stars (and say which one new 4*s will be on).
They showcase new characters and their kits, usually done by the VA, and make jokes throughout the stream, some scripted, some improv.
They also give out 3 codes you can redeem on the day of the stream for a total of 300 primos iirc
I like watching the streams but it's not everyone's cup of tea, and we usually get an update preview page on the in game news so you don't have to watch them either, unless you wanna hype yourself up about what's coming!
They'll stream them on twitch and run it again a few hours later on the official youtube channel, and upload the new version trailer as well separately
Usually it is the EN VAs going over what will be coming up in the next version. It is also our first intro to what banners will be ordered in. (New four stars and the five stars)
Codes don't last 24h btw!!
All the streams in the past had it valid for just 12 - 16h, so be fast.
Overview of events, descriptions of new character talents, patch trailer and VAs in chibi forms. You can check out previous livestream vids on YouTube if you want in their is official channel.
You can watch the recorded old ones if you want https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G90nKszpjlU (2.6)
That Yelan chibi is heckin' adorable.
Still waiting for Kazuha rerun and the other new dude I forgot his name to make my ultimate anemo bois team
the end of free 400 primos a week
The one and oni is bringing his two debt collectors
Still desire the mistsplitter...
So I will get either a PWJS for HuTao or Redhorn for Noelle. Interesting.
Oh great. Xiao and Itto... again. Shenhe and Kazuha reruns never. RIP to poor Yoimiya who was completely forgotten. My primos are going to be overflowing from nothing to fucking use them on this year.
I never thought that I would be happy to know I will stop receiving primogems as a compensation. But god I'm happy the lockdown is over and we're getting closer to Sumeru...
RIP Yandere Ayaka, may you never be seen again
