Genshin Impact Banners & Wish Guide – July 2021 for Patch 2.0

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 look at the known upcoming banners for July 2021 during Patch 2.0. We also maintain a list of all past banners.

Upcoming Banners

Wondering what’s coming in the second half of Patch 2.0? Expect to see Yoimiya and Sayu highlighting the second banner. We don’t yet know who the other two featured characters will be.

In the next patch, miHoYo has revealed the upcoming characters. We have no idea as to what order they’ll release in, however. The list includes Raiden Shogun, Sangonomiya Kokomi, and Kujou Sara.

If you’re on PlayStation, you’ll get Aloy for free as part of a crossover with Horizon in Patch 2.1. Those on other platforms will need to wait until Patch 2.2.

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.

The Heron’s Court – Ayaka Banner

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

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 – Mistsplitter Reforged, Skyward Spine

This banner has only one event exclusive weapon: the new Mistsplitter Reforged.

  • Five-star Items:
    • Odds Up: Mistsplitter Reforged (Sword), Skyward Spine (Polearm)
  • Four-star Items:
    • Odds Up: Favonius Sword (Sword), Sacrificial Greatsword (Claymore), Favonius Lance (Polearm), Favonius Codex (Catalyst), The Stringless (Bow)

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