Thanks to leaks from the ongoing Genshin Impact 1.6 beta test, we believe a brand new character called Yoimiya may be coming to the game sooner rather than later. At this point, we don’t know too much about the potentially playable character, but we have compiled all the important information that has arisen about her in the past few weeks to help you get acquainted.
We believe Genshin Impact’s Yoimiya will arrive in-game with update 1.6 or potentially 1.7. According to recent leaks, she is a five-star pyro character who wields a bow and hails from the recently revealed Inazuma region. It is worth noting that this information is subject to change in the coming months.
To stay up to date with all the latest characters, make sure you take a look at our Genshin Impact Eula, Genshin Impact Dainsleif, Genshin Impact Yae Sakura, and Genshin Impact Kazuha guides. Then for some extra primogems, I recommend checking out our Genshin Impact codes list.

What is Yoimiya’s release date?
We don’t have a concrete release date for Yoimiya just yet. However, we do expect her to arrive alongside Genshin Impact update 1.6 or 1.7, as she seems to feature in the most recent beta test.
When can we expect the Yoimiya banner?
Much like her release date, we are unsure as to when we will see Yoimiya’s banner. Make sure you bookmark this page and check back at a later date, as we will keep this guide updated with all the latest information.
We know people are interested in the Inazuman characters, so we did a deep-dive to compile all the data we currently have for Kazuha and Yoimiya.
We do not have any idea on their release dates.

What are Yoimiya’s skills?
Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly what skills Yoimiya possesses. We do believe she will have a fire arrow and bomb skill to deal AoE pyro damage.
Is there anything else about Yoimiya I should know?
Yoimiya is described as a shrine maiden, leading us to believe that she may appear at the Grand Narukami Shrine in Inazuma, potentially starting as an NPC before becoming a playable character later down the road.
