Genshin Impact - Pity System Guide

The Pity System is a Gacha feature in Wish Banners in Genshin Impact. Learn more about the Pity System, how to guarantee that 5-star pull in the weapon or character banner, and other information in this guide!

Pity System Information

What is the Pity System?

The pity system refers to a number of spins and wishes you need to do on a banner before you're guaranteed a 4-star or 5-star. You have a chance of getting a 4-star or 5-star before even reaching that number.

Pity System Details

Banner 4-Star Weapon or Character 5-Star Weapon or Character
Featured Character Banner 10 Wishes 90 Wishes
Featured Weapon Banner 10 Wishes 80 Wishes (Weapons Only)
Permanent Banner 10 Wishes 90 Wishes

With the pity system, if you roll 9 times in a banner and don't get a 4-star or a 5-star, your 10th roll will be a guaranteed 4-star or higher.

The same goes for the 5-star pity, 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.

Multiple 5-Star in 10 Roll

If you do a 10 roll on a banner and receive multiple 5-star character or weapons (lucky!), the last 5-star you receive will determine if your next 5-star will have a 50/50 chance or be a guaranteed featured character.

For example, in a single 10 roll, you get both Hu Tao (featured) and Qiqi (permanent). If Hu Tao appeared first followed by Qiqi, your next 5-star will be guaranteed to be the featured character. However if Qiqi appears first followed by Hu Tao, your next 5-star pull will be a 50/50 chance to be the featured character.

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.

Getting a 4-star won't reset your counter for 5-star, but getting a 5-star will reset the counter for your 4-star and 5-star pity.

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.

Character Event Wish-2 Counter

Version 2.3 will introduce a new wish banner called the Character Event Wish-2, which is basically a second Featured Character banner that will run at the same time. These double banners will usually be used during character reruns.

The wish counter and wish guarantee is shared between the two Character Event Wish banners, and will carry over to the next set of Promotional Character banner.
