Pity System Information

What is the Pity System?

Genshin - Pity System - Guaranteed 4-star Every 10 Pulls
The pity system refers to a number of pulls or 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

Genshin - Pity System - Pulling a 5 star Resets Pity
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.

What is Soft Pity?

Soft Pity and Hard Pity

Soft Pity refers to the range of wishes between 60 to 80 pulls since your last 5-star character or weapon. This is a term used for when you are closer to your 89th pull without getting a 5-star character or weapon, but have not quite hit it yet.

Hard Pity is the term used when you reach nearly or exactly 90 pulls to get a 5-star character or 80 pulls for a 5-star weapon.

Wish Counter and Carry Over

Genshin - Pity System - Wish Counter and Wish History
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. You can check how close you are to pity by going to the History tab in the Wish Menu.

Character Event Wish-2 Counter

Genshin Impact - Character Event Wish-2 Guide

Version 2.3 introduced 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.

After Version 2.0, players are given the means for a guaranteed pull for the weapon they want. However, to get this guaranteed pull, you have to pull a 5-star weapon 3 times in total, where the third and final pull will be the weapon you selected. This is assuming that the first two pulls are not the weapon you want.
