Genshin Impact leaks – new characters, events, and more

There are always heaps of Genshin Impact leaks floating around the internet, from upcoming characters, to new weapons, events, and maps. Find out more here!

The colossal hit RPG Genshin Impact has garnered an extremely passionate fanbase since its release – perhaps a little too passionate, at times (us included). With Mihoyo dropping new content in fresh updates every six weeks or so, we’re constantly trying to stay ahead of the curve – working out what’s coming next, which materials to farm, and how many primos we need to save in anticipation of our favourite upcoming character or rerun.

Naturally, this has led to heaps of Genshin Impact leaks, from new characters and enemies, to what events are on the horizon. While all leaks are subject to change, some are far more reliable than others. So, to save you from trawling through the murky mines of leaked content, we’ve gathered some of the juiciest morsels for you right here. Please note, if you are concerned about spoilers, it’s best to avoid any form of leaks, whether here or on the r/Genshin_Impact_Leaks subreddit – because, let’s be honest, spoilers are pretty much the whole point of leaks.

If you want to keep up to date with all things Genshin, be sure to check out our Genshin Impact update and Genshin Impact event guides. We also have a super handy Genshin Impact tier list, and Genshin Impact codes to keep a couple of extra primos in your pocket.

Genshin Impact leaks for update 2.5

At the moment, we’re mostly keeping our eyes on the upcoming Genshin Impact 2.5 update. So far, leakers have confirmed a few details, but, of course, these features may change as the update gets closer. For now, we’ll only report on leaks tagged as reliable, for the sake of brevity – as if we reported on every questionable leak, we’d be lost in an abyss deeper than Osial’s watery resting place.

If you’ve gone anywhere near a Genshin leak subreddit or twitter lately, you’re bound to know a certain foxy lady is on the horizon. Genshin Impact’s Yae Miko is probably the most leaked character we’ve seen so far, with not only her abilities, ascension materials, and signature weapon being shown, but many announcing that she will arrive in update 2.5.

Though all other banners are unconfirmed by leakers right now, many have also speculated that Genshin Impact’s Raiden Shogun will get a rerun alongside Yae Miko, due to their intertwined story. Leakers also suggest that it’s unlikely there will be another new character in 2.5, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled.

Other potential leaked characters coming to future updates include YaoYao, the first dendro character – you can check out her reference shots above. Twitter leaker Ubatcha has also released questionable leaks suggesting that Genshin Impact’s Ayato (Genshin Impact Ayaka’s elder brother) may be update 2.6’s five-star character, alongside four-star Inazuman detective, Heizou. We also may see the return of Genshin Impact’s Dainsleif. However, these are all predictions, so don’t get your hopes up!

Genshin Impact Raiden weekly boss

Genshin Impact boss leaks – Raiden weekly boss fight

Uncle Taiyaki has become an almost mythical figure in the world of Genshin Impact leaks – and usually, their leaks are right on point. Lately, Uncle Taiyaki has shared information about an upcoming weekly boss fight with Genshin Impact’s Raiden Shogun, similar to the Genshin Impact Childe weekly boss in the Golden House.

The leak suggests that the fight will have six phases, and promises a pretty nasty battle, likely to challenge even the most skilled players. Due to its complex, multiphase, multi-challenge format, the Raiden weekly boss fight seems almost like a raid boss, which has had players speculating about the future of the game. Let’s face it, Genshin Impact co-op is a little lacking at the moment, and raids would offer some great late-game content.

You can see footage of the upcoming Raiden boss fight here.

Genshin Impact event leaks

Genshin Impact Enkanomiya

Three Realms Gateway Offering

Several leakers have uncovered information about an upcoming Genshin Impact event, entitled Three Realms Gateway Offering. It looks like this event will take place in a lightless version of Enkanomiya, which doesn’t share exploration progress and waypoints found in Genshin Impact update 2.4’s Enkanomiya. It will also offer new chests, and fresh mobs known as ‘Shadow Husks’ (check out leaked footage of Shadowy Husk healing mechanism here).

As we note above, some enemies in lightless Enkanomiya are defended by the darkness, and can’t be defeated by ordinary means. So, you have to expend energy to make use of the Bokuso Box – a special event mechanic, explained here. You can take a look at the leaked map of lightless Enkanomiya here.

Genshin Impact leaked mixing drinks event

Mixing Drinks

A Reddit user has also leaked both images and a tutorial for an upcoming Genshin Impact event, showing a drink mixing mini-game with potential rhythm or quick time event elements, which may offer unique dialogue with some of your favourite characters. Leakers have stated that this one will be coming in update 2.5, and it looks like it could be a lot of fun. It’s nice to have a chill, non-combat event to break up the chaos now and then!

Super Genshin Maker

Though it’s unlikely this is the actual name (well, who knows at this point – we’ve had a KFC crossover in the past), Genshin Intel on Twitter has leaked information about an upcoming event that will allow players to complete non-combat domains created by others. Leakers have suggested that this event will also be coming in update 2.5.

Hyakunin Ikki rerun

Twitter leaker Genshin Intel has stated that a rerun of a past event, Hyakunin Ikki will return in update 2.5. Hyakunin Ikki last ran in September 2021, and was a free-for-all fighting tournament that allowed you to show off your elegant fighting skills by defeating foes in a tag team of two characters. Reaching specific scores snagged you an exclusive namecard, along with free primogems, and a bunch of other great goodies.

Genshin Impact Primordeal Bathysmal Vishaps

Genshin Impact Spiral Abyss leak – floor 12 line-up

Thanks to well-known leaker Ubatcha, several leaks regarding the upcoming floor 12 of the Spiral Abyss in 2.5 have circulated. Looks like we’ll face off against more of those rambunctious rifthounds in the first half, along with the fresh primordial bathysmal vishaps in the second half – all at level 95. So, if the leaks are true, we’ll need to chip down shields and time our kills to get out of this one alive.

Additionally, we’ve got some intel on the Spiral Abyss blessings for phases one and two – suggesting that enemies taking electrocharged damage will gain a stack of debuff up to once every 1.2 seconds, up to a maximum of four stacks. Each stack reduces electro resistance by 10% for ten seconds. This adds more weight to the suggestion that Genshin Impact’s Yae Miko is coming in update 2.5, and a Genshin Impact Raiden Shogun rerun may run alongside her, as both of these lovely ladies are electro, and the blessings often coincide with the characters on the banner.

Genshin Impact leaked weapons

Alongside Genshin Impact Yae Miko’s leaked signature weapon, Shinra’s Truth, leakers have also given us a glimpse at this gorgeous new catalyst, the Oathsworn Eye, set to be a free four-star weapon. So far, we’ve seen it wielded by Genshin Impact’s Kokomi, and with its design, we presume it’s a support weapon with hydro bonus, so it may also benefit Genshin Impact’s Barbara. We’ll update you when we have more information.

And that’s it for our Genshin Impact leaks for now. We’ll be sure to add more tidbits as we find them, so check back from time to time. If you’re looking for something fresh outside of Teyvat, head over to our list of the best mobile games in 2022.
