Completing some missions (story missions in particular) will reward you with characters. These characters might not be the best but they are still pretty great on their own.

Use Wish

The primary way to get more characters is by using the Wish feature. This is what makes the game a gacha game. By wishing, you can gain good equipments and characters. You can try and save up your fate items and use them in bulk or wish everytime you can, the choice is up to you but never ignore the wish feature.

Test Them During Missions

Sometimes, additional characters will join you during quests. Their portrait will have a trial text on them that indicates they are not permanent members on your team. A good way to test them out though so you can aim for getting that character from wishes.

Complete Events


There are certain events in the game that rewards characters. Some of them are the People's choice which rewards you a Xiangling after completing floor 3 of the Spiral Abyss. Another one is a Barbara Reward after reaching AR 20. Make sure to stay ahead on your info game and refer to our event page for the latest information!
