Genshin Impact Banners & Wish Guide – September 2022 for Version 3.0

Save those Primogems for a slew of new characters coming in Genshin Impact 3.1!

As a gacha game, Genshin Impact is ultimately about the characters in its universe. Everyone wants to add the latest and greatest units to their collections so they can start upgrading them and making them useful. That’s why we’ve put together this banners and wish guide, so you can see who is currently available to pull and make your choices accordingly. But we also keep an eye on both leaks and official announcements of upcoming characters and a list of how long it’s been since other characters have been available.

Upcoming Banners

What’s coming in Version 3.0? With Collei and Tighnari available now, we’re left with just Dori yet to be available this patch. As a 4-Star character Dori will be available in both Ganyu’s and Kokomi’s banners coming in the back half of this patch. The revealed banners for the second half of 3.0 are Ganyu and Kokomi with Dori, Sucrose, and Xingqiu.

As far as Version 3.1 goes, we’re expecting Cyno, Nilou, and Candace to be included as they’ve been teased by the official Twitter account.

Active Limited Character Banners

Limited character banners are home to the rarest of rare characters. Venti, for example, is a five-star character which is only available in the Ballad in Goblets banner. You can’t get him from the regular old standard banner like you can the other characters in it. To help make them a little more enticing, Genshin Impact also makes certain four-star characters more likely to drop.

Standard Banners

There’s only one standard banner, but that could change in the future. In these banners, you have equal odds of getting any character or any weapon. There are no increased odds for specific characters. As it stands, there’s only one and it has no expiration date.

Wanderlust Invocation – Standard Banner

There’s really not a ton to say about Wanderlust Invocation. It’s a never-ending banner which is slowly updated to include all but the event exclusive characters. That means no Venti, Klee, Childe, or Zhongli, or any of the other new 5-Star characters. It’s worth noting that this banner is the only way to obtain more copies of Amber, Kaeya, and Lisa.

  • Five-star Characters:
    • Odds Up: None
    • Regular Odds: Jean, Qiqi, Keqing, Mona, Diluc
  • Four-star Characters:
    • Odds Up: None
    • Regular Odds: Kujou Sara, Sayu, Thoma, Yanfei, Rosaria, Xinyan, Sucrose, Diona, Chongyun, Noelle, Bennett, Fischl, Ningguang, Xingqiu, Beidou, Xiangling, Amber, Razor, Kaeya, Barbara, Lisa

Rather than list a bunch of banners, going forward we’re simply going to list how long it’s been since a specific character has been available in a banner. While a banner lasts roughly half of a month, you can’t just figure out how long it’s been by dividing the number of banners by two. Keqing’s last wish, 20 banners ago, was in February 2021. Klee’s last banner was a little over eight months ago. Either way, the main point of this section is to show you how long it’s been since time is a big factor in who gets featured next.
