In Genshin Influence, the characters you utilize resolve the sort of playstyle you utilize. Some skills allow them to shine on the sphere, whereas others don’t should be current to be useful. Growing your Genshin character rely provides you a wide range of types to combine and match, relying in your preferences. Nevertheless, the query stays, how do you get extra characters?
Genshin Influence Wishing Mechanics and Suggestions
The obvious approach to get extra characters is to want for them. Click on on the star icon on the higher proper to go to the Want Menu within the sport. You’ll see three to 4* banners out there to want on. These are:
- One or two Occasion Character Banner(s)
- A corresponding Occasion Weapon Banner (Epitome Invocation, one or each featured 5-star weapons are often the ‘signature weapon(s)’ of the featured 5-star character/s)
- The Customary Banner (Wanderlust Invocation), additionally referred to as perma-banner, has a set prize pool. Additions are everlasting, as within the case of Tighnari after the three.1 patch.
*There’s a particular banner (Novice Banner) out there for brand spanking new accounts, giving a assured Noelle (4* Geo Claymore) on the primary 10-pull. It has a 20-pull restrict, after which it disappears from the menu. One other attribute is a particular low cost on doing a 10-pull, distinctive solely on this banner. This one isn’t counted.
You’ll want ‘Destiny’ to want on any of those banners. There are two sorts: Intertwined Destiny (‘purple destiny’) and Acquaint Destiny (‘blue destiny’). Purples are for the Occasion Banners, irrespective of which sort, whereas the blues are for the Customary Banner. Ensure you don’t get them combined up!
Each Fates have the identical value within the store: 160 Primogems. Alternatively, in alternate for five Starglitter and 75 Stardust (which has a 40% low cost), you may get them within the corresponding menus in Paimon’s Bargains. You solely get the latter two currencies while you want. Stardust Fates even have a restrict of 5 (for each sorts) each month, however they’re additionally the most affordable. (750 Stardust for five blues and 5 purples.)
As you play the sport, you’ll wish to save your Primogems for purples (Intertwined Fates). The Customary Banner will at all times be there, contrasting the Occasion Banners, which rotate with totally different featured characters/objects once in a while.
This fashion, you’ll at all times have Primogems to spare each time an Occasion Character you need seems. Because of the mechanic of how pity works, you’re more likely to get the Customary Banner Characters from the Occasion Banners anyway.
For a deeper rationalization of pity, right here’s the way it works:
- For those who haven’t acquired a 5-star at 89 pulls, your ninetieth one might be a assured 5-star. It’s 80 on the Weapon Banner, so if you happen to haven’t bought a 5-star weapon at 79 pulls, in your eightieth, one is assured.
- This counter resets when you’ve acquired a 5-star with out reaching pity.
- A ‘delicate pity’ mechanic subtly will increase the possibilities of getting a 5-star beginning at 75 pulls on the Customary and Character Banners and 65 on Weapon.
- If the 5-star character you acquired isn’t the featured one, your subsequent 5-star (each time that’s) might be assured the featured character. That is referred to as shedding 50/50, as there’s a 50% likelihood of being both the featured character or one of many Customary Banner characters.
- On the Weapon Banner, 5-star weapons you’ll be able to obtain have a 75% to be both of the featured ones. If it isn’t, the subsequent 5-star might be a featured one. Since there are two, the Epitomized Path ensures you’ll get your wished weapon in your third 5-star pull. (Ensure you select one to purpose for beforehand!)
- The Customary Banner has a 90-pity counter for 5-stars. It doesn’t give a assure whether or not it’s a weapon or character. You will get the next 5-stars from this banner:
- Skyward Collection of weapons (Skyward Sword, Skyward Pleasure (claymore), Skyward Backbone (polearm), Skyward Atlas (catalyst), Skyward Harp (bow))
- Primordial Jade Winged-Spear
- Misplaced Prayer to the Sacred Winds
- There’s a 4-star (or above) assure each 10 pulls in all banners. Meaning each 10-pull has a assured one 4-star weapon or character. The possibilities of getting a 5-star on this approach are minuscule however potential.
- Pity counters don’t cross over to different banner sorts. Meaning pulling in Occasion Character Banners doesn’t add to the pity counters of the Weapon or Customary Banners. The one exception is that if there are two featured characters, just like the (as of writing) present 3.1 banners, Cyno and Venti. They share their pity rely.
- Pity counters carry over to the next Occasion banner (for Character and Weapon). For instance, suppose you’ve pulled 50 instances for Cyno or Venti. In that case, you may get Nilou, Albedo, or a unique character sooner or later in your subsequent 40 pulls. The 50/50 assure additionally carries over on this approach, irrespective of what number of banners you skipped within the meantime.
- Sadly, Epitomized Paths within the Weapon Banner don’t carry over. Dissipate your Destiny Factors earlier than the subsequent banner comes!
- Newly launched 4-stars don’t get added into the pool of 4-stars on the Customary Banner till the subsequent patch. The 4-star characters beforehand featured has a hidden price up on the Customary Banner for a while afterward.
- A Customary Banner character having an occasion banner (as within the case of Keqing) might be unavailable on the Customary Banner within the meantime.
In brief, if you happen to preserve wishing, your character assortment will naturally construct up. Wishing additionally helps you to earn Masterless Starglitter, which you should use to purchase extra Fates or the rotating characters out there within the retailer.
