Wish feature has been unlocked. Wish upon the sky filled with a blanket of stars, and pray that they would peek down at earth and grant you various characters and weapons.

Wishes are the gacha system in Genshin Impact. There are two main types of Wishes: the permanent Standard Wish, Wanderlust Invocation, and limited-time Event Wishes for Characters and Weapons.

Players can unlock wishes after completing the Archon Quest Knights of Favonius in Prologue: Act I - The Outlander Who Caught the Wind, which players can reach at around Adventure Rank 5.

Types[]

Availability[]

Item Acquaint Fate

Acquaint Fate

The "Standard Wish," Wanderlust Invocation, is always available and requires Acquaint Fate to wish from it. The Beginners' Wish is available indefinitely until all 20 wishes are made, has a 20% discount on the Acquaint Fate required to wish, and guarantees the player receives Noelle and one other 4- or 5-star character within the 20 wishes.

Item Intertwined Fate

Intertwined Fate

Limited-time Event Wishes are split into two wishes, one for characters and one for weapons, and as the name implies, they are only available for a limited time. Event Wishes require Intertwined Fates instead of Acquaint Fates.

Character Event Wishes have one promotional 5★ character and three featured 4★ characters. Weapon Event Wishes will have two promotional 5★ weapons and five 4★ featured weapons. Both the promotional 5★ and featured 4★ items will have an increased probability for players to wish them when compared to the basic rates when the guarantees are factored in.

Players can buy either of the Fates for 160 Primogems each in the Wishes menu or through Paimon's Bargains. There are also in-game methods of obtaining Fates; see their respective pages for more information.

Character Event Wishes[]

Limited event wishes that have 1 promotional 5★ character and 3 featured 4★ characters.

Rates[]

Item Base Rate Average Rate
(including Pity)
5★ Character 0.6% 1.6%
4★ Character or Weapon 5.1% 13%
3★ Weapon 94.3% 85.4%

Rules[]

  • 4★ drop guarantee: If a player does not obtain any 4★ (or above) item within 9 wishes in a row, the 10th wish is guaranteed to be a 4★ (or higher) item. (On guarantee, the probability of getting a 4★ item is 99.4%, and the probability of getting a 5★ item is 0.6%.)
    • This counter will reset if the player obtains any 4★ item.
  • Featured 4★ character guarantee: Every time a player obtains a 4★ item, there is a 50% chance it will be one of the featured 4★ characters.
    • If the 4★ item obtained is not one of the featured characters, then the next 4★ item obtained is guaranteed to be one of the featured characters.
    • Thus it requires a maximum of 20 wishes to obtain one of the featured 4★ characters.
  • 5★ drop guarantee: If a player does not obtain any 5★ item after 89 wishes, the 90th wish is guaranteed to be a 5★ item. (On average, a greater proportion of 5★ items are dropped between 74 and 90 pity.)
    • This counter will reset if the player obtains any 5★ item.
    • Character Event Wishes do not contain 5★ weapons in their item pool, as such each 5★ drop will be a character.
  • Promotional 5★ character guarantee: Every time a player obtains a 5★ item, there is a 50% chance it will be the promotional 5★ character.
    • If the 5★ item obtained is not the promotional character, the next 5★ item is guaranteed to be the promotional character.
    • Thus it requires a maximum of 180 wishes to guarantee obtaining the promotional 5★ character.
  • Counter and Guarantee carry-over: Each wish of the same type shares the above counters and guarantees, this means that your counters for the current Character Event Wish are carried over to the next Character Event Wish (but not the Weapon Event Wish or Wanderlust Invocation).
    • For example, if one wishes 89 3/4★ items on Character Event Wish A, then the first wish on the following promotional Character Event Wish B will be a guaranteed 5-star character.
    • Likewise if one wished a non-promotional 5-star character on Character Event Wish A, then the next 5-star character on Character Event Wish B will be guaranteed to be the promotional character.

Weapon Event Wishes[]

Limited event wishes that have 2 promotional 5★ weapons and 5 featured 4★ weapons.

Rates[]

Item Base Rate Average Rate including Pity
5★ Weapon 0.7% 1.85%
4★ Character or Weapon 6% 14.5%
3★ Weapon 93.3% 83.65%

Rules[]

  • 4★ drop guarantee: If a player does not obtain any 4★ or above item after 9 wishes, then the 10th wish is guaranteed to be a 4★ or higher item. (On guarantee, the probability of getting a 4★ item is 99.3%, and the probability of getting a 5★ item is 0.7%.)
    • This counter will reset if the player wishes any 4★ or above item.
  • Featured 4★ weapon guarantee: Every time a player wins a 4★ item, there is a 75% chance it will be one of the featured 4-star weapons.
    • If the 4-star item won is not one of the featured weapons, the next 4-star item won is guaranteed to be one of the featured weapons.
    • Thus it requires a maximum of 20 wishes to obtain one of the featured 4★ weapons.
  • 5★ drop guarantee: If a player does not win a 5★ item 79 wishes in a row, the 80th wish is guaranteed to be a 5★ item. (On average, a greater proportion of 5★ items are dropped between 64 and 78 pity.)
    • This counter will reset if the player wishes any 5★ item.
  • Promotional 5★ weapon guarantee: Every time a player wins a 5★ item, there is a 75% chance it will be a promotional 5★ weapon.
    • If the 5★ item won is not one of the promotional weapons, the next 5★ item is guaranteed to be a promotional weapon.
    • Thus it requires a maximum of 160 wishes to guarantee obtaining one of the promotional 5★ weapons.
  • Promotional weapon wishes do not contain 5★ characters in their item pool, as such each 5★ drop will be a weapon.
  • Counter and Guarantee carry-over: Each wish of the same type shares the above counters and guarantees, this means that your counters for the current Weapon Event Wish are carried over to the next Weapon Event Wish (but not the Character Event Wish or the Standard Wish).
    • The weapon selection can be changed or canceled. This will reset your accumulated Fate Points.
    • For example, if one wishes 79 3/4★ items on Weapon Event Wish A, then the first wish on the following Weapon Event Wish B will be a guaranteed 5-star weapon.
    • Likewise if one wished a non-promotional 5-star weapon on Weapon Event Wish A, then the next 5-star weapon on Weapon Event Wish B will be guaranteed to be a promotional weapon.

Epitomized Path[]

  • Once the player has charted a course towards their chosen weapon, they will obtain 1 Fate Point upon receiving a 5-star weapon that is not the one that they chose. A maximum of 2 Fate Points can be obtained.
  • Once enough Fate Points has been accumulated, the next 5-star weapon will be the one chosen through "Epitomized Path."
  • The number of Fate Points will be reset upon obtaining an "Epitomized Path" weapon during the current "Epitome Invocation."
  • If a weapon is not chosen, wishes will not accumulate Fate Points.
  • The weapon selection can be changed or canceled. This will reset your accumulated Fate Points.
  • When the current "Epitome Invocation" ends, the number of accumulated Fate Points will also be reset.
  • Therefore, an upper limit of 240 wishes (38,400 Primogems) may be required on one Epitome Invocation wish to guarantee the desired 5-star weapon.

Chronicled Wishes[]

Limited event wishes that allow the player to select a 5-star character or weapon from a list of 5-star items.

Rates[]

Trivia[]

  • The 1.6% consolidated rate, with guarantees on the Event Character wish is equivalent to one 5★ character per 62.5 wishes, or exactly 10,000 Primogems.
  • The expected quality (computed from average rates) is 3.162★ for the character banner and 3.182★ for the weapon banner. This means, that with infinitely many pulls, it is expected on average to get a 3.162★ item on the character banner and a 3.182★ item on the weapon banner.
  • Because the 50:50 guarantee on Character Event Wishes only applies to the featured character, the actual average percentage of featured characters from 5★ drops is 66.6% or two thirds overall.

Frequently Asked Questions[]

Icon Emoji Paimon's Paintings 02 Sucrose 3
This section is about community-derived information, concepts, or terminology.
This section contains unofficial information, concepts, or terminology derived from or based on community discussion, invention, or knowledge. This section may be subjective and contain information or terminology that is not used by miHoYo or in official Genshin Impact communications, and may not be an officially recognized concept.
The terms "pity" and "banner" and all related terms, such as "soft pity," are unofficial. The existence of soft pity and when it begins are both determined from player testing.
  1. Do the standard, character, and weapon event wishes each have separate pity?
    Yes. (Note: Character Event Wish-2 shares pity with the main character banner)
  2. Does pity carry over on a new banner within the same character or weapon event wishes?
    Yes, pity built up in the previous banner will be used in the new banner.
  3. Do Fate Points carry over on a new banner within the weapon event?
    No, Fate Points are reset in every new banner.
  4. Does obtaining a 5★ item before 80 or 90 wishes guarantee another 5★ item at the 80th or 90th wish?
    No, the pity counter is reset whenever any 5★ (character or weapon) is obtained. The hard pity is guaranteed if and only if no 5★ items have been rolled in the last 80 or 90 wishes, counting from the most recently obtained 5★ item.
  5. Is the 50/50 or 75/25 shared between character or weapon event wishes?
    No, since their pities are separate, their guarantees are as well.
  6. Does losing the 50/50 or 75/25 guarantee the next 5★ win to be the featured item in the banner?
    Yes.
  7. Does winning the 50/50 or 75/25 guarantee the next 5★ win to be the featured item in the banner?
    No, the next 5★ will be a 50/50 or 75/25.
  8. Does winning one of the 5★ featured weapons in the weapon event guarantee the next 5★ to be the other 5★ featured weapon?
    No, the next 5★ can be either of the 2 featured weapons or a non-featured one.
  9. When does soft pity for the banners start?
    Soft pity for the character and standard banners start at approximately the 74th wish and the weapon banner approximately starts at the 63rd wish.[1][Note 1]

Notes[]

  1. It is important to note that the data gathered from wishes describe long-term averages and do not suggest the existence of soft pity on their own. For soft pity to exist, the probabilities on a given pull must be equal to the exact proportions observed by distributions. As long as the specific algorithm used to determine outcomes remains secret, any model which, with infinite pulls, results in the advertised rates and which fits the data can be considered a valid model.
