Kuki Shinobu is another highly anticipated character set to be released during this update, and she will be the game’s first Electro Healer. She wields a sword and can deal a ton of Electro damage while also keeping her teammates healthy.
Shinobu may get released alongside Yelan, though some speculation has placed her during the second half of this update with a possible rerun of Arataki Itto.

The identity of the last character appearing during the 2.7 update is still unknown, as some leakers have speculated that it will be Xiao, while others have said it will be Yoimiya. Both of these characters are powerful main DPS choices who can deal a ton of damage, and the case for either of them is strong. Yoimiya hasn’t seen a rerun in quite a while, while Xiao has just had a unique artifact set released.
