Genshin Impact - Pity System

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

Genshin - Get Pity pulls for featured characters or items

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.

Wishes don't need to be consecutive to trigger pity roll

As mentioned, each banner type has its own counter. Wishing in one of the banners won't reset the counter for the other banners.
