Rerun Characters

Apart from the banner of two new characters, there are some rerun banners of old characters in Genshin Impact. Here are the top four possible rerun characters in Genshin Impact 2.7.

  • Kaedehara Kazuha is a 5-star Anemo sword user from Inazuma. He can play as a sub-DPS and a supporter. This character is highly expected in Genshin Impact 2.7 and 2.8.
  • Yoimiya is a Pyro archer from Inazuma. She can be the main DPS character of the Hydro and Electro teams or support Cryo and Pyro teams.

Kaedehara Kazuha is one of the most anticipated characters for the rerun banner in the next update.
  • Klee is a little but powerful naughty girl from Mondstadt. She is a Pyro character who can play as the main DPS of any team. She is highly anticipated after the appearance in many in-game and web events of Genshin Impact 2.6.
  • Keqing is an Electro sword user. Though she is not among the most powerful DPS in this game, she can still be a DPS and sub-DPS fighter in an Electro team.

The rerun characters have not been confirmed yet. Those characters are the most likely to return in the next update. But there are many old characters who haven't been reintroduced, so they still have the chance to return in Genshin Impact 2.7 rerun banners.
