Players first meet Genshin Impact\’s Zhongli during the Liyue portion of the main story. The somewhat enigmatic \”Consultant\” runs a funeral parlor in town and is known for his generosity. Although he typically speaks in a calm voice, Zhongli is a powerful fighter with polearms and Geo-based skills and attacks.
Although Zhongli will be the featured new banner character, he\’ll still be incredibly difficult to obtain. As a banner character, he\’ll only be available through Genshin Impact\’s Wish system. This gacha system is purely RNG-based and requires players to spend Primogems on Fates for pulls. This can lead to spending real money as well, and even then, the chances of getting Zhongli in Genshin Impact are still incredibly low.
The pull rate for 5-star characters is somewhere around 0.6%, and it\’s unlikely Genshin Impact\’s rates will change before Zhongli arrives in the game. In order to get Zhongli, players should go ahead and start saving up Primogems now. They\’ll need a lot of time – and even more luck – to pull Zhongli through his banner in the Wish system. Thankfully, Zhongli\’s new banner event in Genshin Impact should be available for around a month, so players should have lots of opportunities to pull for him.
With its growing roster of playable characters, Genshin Impact is periodically changing its banner characters on a regular basis. When Zhongli finally does arrive, he\’ll likely be one of the most powerful characters in the game. Genshin Impact is currently available on PC, mobile, and PS4.
