A recent Genshin Impact leak has revealed more information about a new character named Yaoyao, who is expected to arrive in one of the upcoming updates. The game’s tight update schedule allows HoYoverse to introduce new limited characters and weapons every three to four weeks.


Yaoyao has been one of the most anticipated characters in Genshin Impact since her model got leaked back in 2020. With the addition of the new Sumeru region, players expect more Dendro characters to arrive on the playable roster in the following months. At the moment, only three characters in the game, Tihnari, Collei, and the Traveler, can apply the new element on the field.

Out of the eight different characters that have had their models leaked back in the original beta, Yaoyao is the only one that has not become a playable character yet. According to one of the most credible leakers in the community, Project Celestia, Yaoyao will be a new Genshin Impact healer. The leaker has revealed that the mechanic of her skills will be similar to Itto’s Masatsu Zetsugi: Akaushi Burst, which deploys his loyal companion Ushi on the field. Yaoyao’s elemental skill and burst will apparently both have the ability to place objects on the field and provide different healing effects.

When it comes to her release date, previous leaks have been hinting that Yaoyao will be the only new character arrive in update 3.4, which should drop around mid-February, at least according to the game’s usual update schedule. Players were expecting Yaoyao to arrive much sooner considering that she was the first known Dendro character in the community. The main reason why HoYoverse avoided introducing her in the first couple of Sumeru updates is probably the fact that she is tied with the Liyue region.

Her first banner appearance will likely be a part of the Lantern Rite festival which is an annual event in the world of Genshin Impact that celebrates the Chinese New Year. The fact that she is a four-star character led many players to believe that Yaoyao could be obtainable for free during the festival, but that has yet to be confirmed.

Even though players were hoping that Yaoyao could arrive alongside a popular character named Baizhu, recent leaks have revealed that he will be featured in 3.5 instead. Baizhu is another Dendro character who already made multiple appearances in the official storyline, but unlike Yaoyao, he is expected to have a higher five-star rarity.

Genshin Impact is now available on mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5. A Switch version is in development with no confirmed release date.
