Even if Genshin Impact Version 2.7 is delayed, rumors and leaks of Version 2.8 are circulating in the community. Similar to past updates, it will include a new character, skins, an event, and many more. Here are all banners leaked in Genshin Impact Version 2.8.
Shikanoin Heizou will possibly be a new character in Version 2.8 since he was announced on the official Twitter of Genshin Impact. He is a Detective of the Tenryou Commission with a wild imagination and free spirit.
Leaks on Reddit of his attacks are rumored to feature the attack style, Fudou Style Martial Arts, which gives Heizou the ability to perform up to five fisticuffs empowered by the wind. All of his offensive strategies deal Anemo Damage to his opponents, including his Charged and Plunging Attacks.
As for Heizou’s Elemental Skill, Heartstopper Strike, this will use the power of the wind swiftly, while holding to charge this ability produces the Declension effect. Once the skill button is released, he pursues forward and strikes a deadly Anemo DMG at his foes.
You can see a leaked gameplay video of his attacks here on Reddit:
Although there are many other details on what Shikanoin Heizou Banner will have, these are still rumors and have yet to be confirmed until the release. The character that will potentially join Heizou is said to be a rerun of the character Kaedehara Kazuha as mentioned here on Twitter:
A leak on Twitter is claiming that A Summer Sea Sojourn will be the main event in Version 2.8. Fischl, Oz, Kazuha, Mona, and others are rumored to make an appearance in these unknown festivities.
New challenges will possibly be featured in this event according to Reddit, which includes a Surfpiercer Challenge and Reminiscent Regimen Challenge. Surfpiercer will have a summer theme of riding a Waverider in the ocean as you charge up to activate the mighty Surfpiercer’s Surge. The other challenge, The Reminiscent Regimen, has the three themes: Convoy, Raid, and Abseil, providing a reward if you complete each one. Both of these challenges will give gamers the option to play single-player and co-op.
Golden Apple Archipelago Island is set to return with the A Summer Sea Sojourn event. There may be future adjustments and updates as the story progresses, but you can take a look at the leaked images here:
Possible Weapon Banner
In the 2.8 Beta files, a new 4-star sword has been revealed alongside Kazuha. There isn’t much information to go on for this weapon, but it is rumored on Twitter to unleash an AoE DMG equal to 180% of ATK and increases the ATK for eight seconds. Any of the attacks made from this sword will whip up the Hewing Gale and can be triggered once every eight seconds.
Diluc and Fischl Skins
Rumors of Diluc and Fischl Skins have been around since the beginning of the year, and now they may be finally making their appearance in Genshin Impact Version 2.8. A Reddit user has claimed that there will be special effects provided with the Diluc skin. The Fischl skin is also presumed to be awarded in the A Summer Sea Sojourn event as mentioned here on Twitter, but nothing is concrete at the moment.
