1.6 Character Banners: Klee and Kazuha

The first Character Banner in Version 1.6 is Klee's Banner Rerun, which will be followed by Kazuha's Banner. Klee's rerun will most probably be released the same time as Version 1.6, and Kazuha's Banner will most probably be released the same day Klee's Banner ends.

1.6 Livestream Weapons and Artifacts

New 1.6 Weapons

List of New Weapons
Freedom-Sworn Image Freedom-Sworn Dodoco Tales Image Dodoco Tales Mitternachts Waltz Image Mitternachts Waltz

The 4-Star Dodoco Tales Catalyst has confirmed to be a reward from the Midsummer Island Adventure Event, while the 5-Star Freedom-Sworn Sword and 4-Star Mitternachts Waltz Bow will most probably be rate-up weapons in the Epitome Invocation banner.

No New 1.6 Artifacts

The 1.6 Livestream had no mention of new Artifacts or Artifact Domains, so there may not be any new ones in the upcoming version.

1.6 Livestream Regions and Areas

New Area: Dodo Land

Dodo Land Area Previews
Island Puzzles Island Treasures
Island Scenery Island Scenery

The 1.6 livestream featured teaser images of a new area: the mysterious islands of Dodo Land! This new area will host new 1.6 events, world quests, and more.

Inazuma Area Preview

Ayaka appeared on the 1.6 livestream to describe a few Inazuma regions. Since no in-game map footage was shown on the livestream, Inazuma probably won't be released in Version 1.6.

1.6 Livestream Quests and Events

New Archon Quest: Chapter 2 Prologue

Genshin - New Archon Quest
Chapter 2: Prologue will be released in Version 1.6, and the livestream teased Kazuha's Inazuma origin! This may suggest that the Archon Quests after this will take place in Inazuma.
List of All Archon Quests

Possible Kazuha Story Quest?

Genshin - Kazuha Story Quest
The livestream didn't confirm if Kazuha would get a Story Quest, but past 5-Star Character releases are usually accompanied by their Story Quests so it's possible! Here's a list of Story Quests so far:
List of All Story Quests

Midsummer Island Adventure Event

Dodoco's disappearance will have you venturing a whole new area: Dodo Land! The Midsummer Island Adventure event is similar to the Windblume Festival as the main event has multiple mini games for players to challenge. Summon and sail the Waverider boat to explore the new area and its features!

Echoing Tales Event

Magical ''Echoing Conches'' will be available throughout the event, whispering hidden tales to you. Collect these Echoing Conches to receive event rewards, including a new character skin feature: Barbara's new outfit, Summertime Sparkle!
Echoing Tales Event Guide

KaboomBall Kombat Event

A mechanism called the ''Dodo Fortress'' will shoot different types of KaboomBalls at you, which you can send back with a Dodo Guard! Damage and defeat as many Dodo Fortresses as you can, and get the most amount of Enigma Gears to exchange for event rewards.

You can also play KaboomBall Kombat in Co-Op mode! Note however that only two players at a time are allowed to play.

Never-Ending Battle Event

Defeat the various enemies that invade Dodo Land at your preferred difficulty level. The higher the difficulty level, the higher the event score! Berserker enemies and round buffs will appear throughout the match to spice things up as well.

The event challenges are scattered all around the archipelago, which gives us another reason to explore the new area!

1.6 Livestream Features & Improvements
