While it\’s free-to-play, one transactional system is at the very core of Genshin Impact – the random-chance \’gacha\’ system, which allows you to spend in-game currency or real cash in order to have a random lucky draw that\’ll hopefully contain powerful characters or weapons.
In the gacha genre, often the lucky draws are split into Banners, and so too is the case for the gacha-based wish system in Genshin Imapct. A few banners will basically be permanent fixtures, but the majority of them will rotate over time, with special promotional banners featuring an increased drop rate for certain characters and weapons.
This page lists all of the current and upcoming Wish Banners in Genshin Impact, but the page is best used in tandem with our other guides so you can go in fully informed:
- Check out our specific gacha guide if you need to learn more about the wish system and the gacha drop rates in general.
- For a list of the best characters to draw, check out our Genshin Impact tier list.
- Finally, we\’ve also got a page that lists every five-star character and weapon in the game – with five stars being the best available ranking for now.
Genshin Impact Banners: current banners
Here\’s the current banners in Genshin Impact, updated as of October 20th 2020. These banners are for the North American, European and Asian servers – the Chinese servers operate separately. Banners will be updated at some point in the day for you, possibly based on the Daily Reset time.
Remember that the \”Wanderlust Invocation\” wish is your standard wish, and is always present – it doesn\’t time out, and is just a general wish against all available characters and weapons, with no special boosted drops.
Sparkling Steps Banner: Klee leads the way
- The Sparkling Steps Banner will run from October 20th 2020 until November 10th 2020.
- If you\’re wondering exactly when the banner will start and finish, remember that this will vary based on your server time – so if you see online some have access, they\’re likely in a different region and you should check back later on the same day.
- The star of the Sparkling Steps banner is Klee, a 5-star pyro/fire element character who is rare, but only made it into the b-tier in our tier list – she\’s good, but not great.
