Upcoming Banners

Adrift in the Harbor – Ganyu Banner

Ganyu is exclusive to this banner and is not in standard banners. This banner starts tomorrow and ends on February 2.

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.

    • Regular Odds: Xinyan, Diona, Chongyun, Noelle, Ningguang, Xingqiu, Beidou, Xiangling, Razor, Barbara

Active Limited Item Banners

Limited item banners are similar in that they make it easier to get specific weapons. Thus far, however, they have not contained exclusive items which can’t be obtained at any other time. We’ll let you know if that changes in the future!

Epitome Invocation – Summit Shaper, Skyward Atlas

None of the items in this banner are exclusive.

  • Five-star Items:
    • Odds Up: Summit Shaper (Sword), Skyward Atlas (Catalyst)
  • Four-star Items:
    • Odds Up: Favonius Sword (Sword), Favonius Greatsword (Claymore), Favonius Lance (Polearm), Sacrificial Fragments (Catalyst), The Stringless (Bow)

Standard Banners

As far as we know, 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, but it does mean Dion and Xinyan will be featured!

  • Five-star Items:
    • Odds Up: None
    • Regular Odds: Jean, Qiqi, Keqing, Mona, Diluc
  • Four-star Items:
    • Odds Up: None.
