Looking to fill out your roster of Genshin Impact characters? Well, you’re not alone. If you’re not happy with your current team, then you undoubtedly would have come across the in-game ‘Wish’ function. Here, you’ll be able to wish on a Genshin Impact banner for some of the best units and weapons currently available in HoYoverse’s popular ARPG.

By using either Intertwined or Acquaint Fates, players can wish on different kinds of Genshin Impact banner for new characters: the ‘Character Event Wish’ banner – which has a rotating selection of featured characters – or the permanent ‘Standard Wish’ banner. There’s also a featured weapon banner, where players can try and snag the signature weapon for the premium five star units on the Character Event Wish banners.

Alongside a premium five-star unit which has an increased chance of being pulled, the Character Event Wish banners also bump the rates up dramatically for three featured four-star units. But what is the current Genshin Impact banner? And what is the next Genshin Impact banner? Read on to find out more.
