Genshin Impact Banners & Wish Guide – Upcoming Banners, Past Banners List

New banners are oftentimes one of the most exciting things about gacha games like Genshin Impact. After all, the entire game is about collecting and powering up your characters and the first step to doing so is obviously obtaining them. In this Genshin Impact guide, we’re going to look at all of the past banners and hazard a guess at what’s going to be in upcoming banners.

Upcoming Banners

There’s no official information on the next banners just yet. That said, a new 5-Star character, Eula, and a new 4-Star character, Yanfei have been leaked and we expect them to be added in Patch 1.5.

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.

Ballad in Goblets – Venti Banner

Tartaglia is exclusive to this banner and is not in standard banners. While Rosaria is the new character in this banner, she is not exclusive and will be added to the loot pool afterward.

This banner ends on April 27.

  • Five-star Characters:
    • Odds Up: Tartaglia
    • Regular Odds: Mona, Diluc, Keqing, Qiqi, Jean
  • Four-star Characters:
    • Odds Up: Rosaria, Fischl, Barbara
    • Regular Odds: Chongyun, Bennett, Ningguang, Xingqiu, Beidou, Xiangling, Sucrose, Noelle, Razor

Active Limited Item Banners

Limited item banners are similar in that they make it easier to get specific weapons, some of which are exclusive to this gacha mechanic.

Epitome Invocation – Skyward Harp, Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds

The only exclusive weapon this time around is the Alley Hunter bow.

  • Five-star Items:
    • Odds Up: Skyward Harp (Bow), Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds (Catalyst)
  • Four-star Items:
    • Odds Up: Alley Hunter (Bow), Favonius Sword (Sword), Sacrificial Greatsword (Claymore), Favonius Codex (Catalyst), Favonius Lance (Polearm)

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, but it does mean Diona and Xinyan are featured!

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