Not getting that 5-star character or weapon that you want? Learn about the pity system in our guide to find out how you can guarantee that 5-star pull.

What is the Pity System

The pity system refers to the number of wishes on the gacha you need to spend before you're guaranteed a 4-star or a 5-star. You have a chance to get a 4-star of a 5-star before reaching that number.

Pity System

  • 4-Star Weapon - 10 wishes
  • 4-Star Character - 10 wishes
  • 5-Star Weapon - 80 wishes
  • 5-Star Character - 90 wishes

What this means is that if by your 9th wish you still haven't received a 4-star weapon or character, your 10th roll is guaranteed to be 4-star or higher.

Same goes if by your 89th wish (79th for weapon banner), you still haven't received a 5-star weapon or character, your next wish is guaranteed to be 5-star.

Featured Character or Weapon

When you get a 4-star or 5-star drop, there's a 50% chance it will be a featured character or weapon in the limited banner.

If you didn't receive the featured character, your next guaranteed 4-star or 5-star drop will be the featured character or weapon.

Wish Counter and Carry Over

The wish counter is separate for the 3 banners (Promotional Character, Promotional Weapon, and Permanent). The wish counter resets when you get a 4-star or a 5-star.

If the limited banner ends for the Promotional Character and Promotional Weapon, the counter will carry over to the next banner of the same category.
