Genshin Impact Banners are what you can spend your Fate currency on to Wish for characters and weapons.
Every character event Banner usually runs for three weeks, making way for the next Banner, which always has a single 5-Star character with boosted pull odds, and three boosted 4-Stars.
There is also a weapon Banner that changes its featured 5-Star and 4-Star pulls every three weeks, and two permanent Banners with their own unique character and weapon pools.
We’ve detailed what the next and current Banners are in Genshin Impact below, along with a list of all Banners that have ran in the game since its 1.0 launch.
On this page:
- Current character event Banners
- Current Epitome Invocation Banner
- Beginners' Wish Banner
- Wanderlust Invocation Banner
For all other information on current and future events, check out our version 4.2 schedule.
Genshin Impact next Banner event characters
For these temporary event character Banners, you have to use Intertwined Fate to Wish on them, and they usually change every three weeks. Sometimes there will only be one event character Banner, and sometimes there are two. When there are two, they share the same pity, 50/50 system, and boosted 4-Star characters.
If leaks from 'Uncle Chicken' and 'StepLeaks' relayed by u/vivliz and u/ukrisreng on the Genshin Impact Leaks subreddit are to be believed, then Navia is a 5-Star Geo character who uses a claymore, and Chevreuse is a 4-Star Pyro character who uses a polearm.
There are also leaks from user WaffelGM on X (formerly Twitter), relayed and backed up by the reliable SaveYourPrimos X account that point to Ayaka running alongside Navia in 4.3, and Raiden Shogun and Yoimiya rerunning in Phase 2 after them.
If all of this information turns out to be accurate, then here's the Banner schedule for Genshin Impact version 4.3:
- Navia - 4.3 Phase 1
- Ayaka - 4.3 Phase 1
- Chevreuse - 4.3 Phase 1
- Raiden Shogun - 4.3 Phase 2
- Yoimiya - 4.3 Phase 2
Although drip marketing is a very reliable source on what the next Banners are, and these particular X leakers are usually accurate, keep in mind that the version 4.3 Banners have not been officially confirmed yet. We'll update this page when any new reliable leaks or official confirmation is revealed about upcoming Genshin Impact Banners.
Genshin Impact next Epitome Invocation Banner weapons
Epitome Invocation is a permanent weapon Banner with boosted 5-Star and 4-Star weapons that usually changes every three weeks, at the same time new event character Banners are added. Just like these character Banners, you must use Intertwined Fate to Wish on Epitome Invocation.
Although not officially confirmed, if Navia and Ayaka are the next character Banners, then the the next weapon Banner in Genshin Impact should feature Navia's new signature weapon, the Verdict 5-Star claymore, and the Mistsplitter Reforged 5-Star sword, Ayaka's signature weapon.
The Verdict hasn't been shown off in official promotional materials yet, but going off leaks sourced by Project Amber, at Level 90 and Refinement Rank 1, Verdict has 674 attack and a 22.1% Crit Rate main stat.
When equipped, the Verdict increases attack by 20%, and when characters in your party obtain Elemental Shards from Crystallize reactions the character with Verdict gains one Seal, increasing Elemental Skill damage by 18%. The Seal lasts for 15 seconds, and the equipper may have up to two Seals at once. All of the equipper's Seals will disappear 0.2 seconds after their Elemental Skill deals damage.
We'll update this page when official information is revealed on what is on the next weapon Banner, including what the 4-Star weapons are.
Genshin Impact current character event Banners
The version 4.2 Phase 2 character Banners in Genshin Impact end on Tuesday 19th December. You can check exactly how long a Banner has left in your own server time by checking the bottom left-hand corner of an event Banner.
The current Banners in Genshin Impact feature returning 5-Stars Ayato and Cyno.
Ayato is a 5-Star Hydro sword-user available on his Azure Excursion Banner, and the boosted 4-Star characters on Ayato's current Banner are:
- Kuki Shinobu (Electro)
- Kirara (Dendro)
- Xiangling (Pyro)
The other current 5-Star character Banner features Cyno, a 5-Star Electro polearm-user, and he is available on his Twilight Arbiter Banner.
All the boosted 4-Star characters featured on Cyno's current Banner are:
- Kuki Shinobu (Electro)
- Kirara (Dendro)
- Xiangling (Pyro)
Genshin Impact current Epitome Invocation Banner
The current Epitome Invocation Banner runs until Tuesday 19th December.
The 5-Star weapons on the current weapon Banner in Genshin Impact are:
- Haran Geppaku Futsu (sword) - Ayato's signature
- Staff of the Scarlet Sands (polearm) - Cyno's signature
All of the 4-Star boosted weapons on the current weapon Banner are:
- Favonius Greatsword (claymore)
- Favonius Lance (polearm)
- Favonius Warbow (bow)
- Lion's Roar (sword)
- The Widsith (catalyst)
Genshin Impact Beginners' Wish Banner
You can spend your Acquaint Fate on the permanent Beginners' Wish Banner. However, if you've Wished 20 times on it, Beginners' Wish will no longer be available.
After spending 10 Acquaint Fate on Beginners' wish you will get a guaranteed 4-Star Geo character, Noelle. After 20 Acquaint Fate is used, you'll then get another guaranteed 5-Star or 4-Star character from a select pool.
There are five 5-Star characters you can get from the Beginners' Wish Banner:
Here's the 4-Star characters available in the Beginners' Wish Banner pool:
Genshin Impact Wanderlust Invocation Banner
All 5-Star characters and Weapons not included in event character Banners are available in Wanderlust Invocation, a permanent Banner. New 4-Star characters are added to it in the update after their original Banner debut, but event-exclusive 4-Star weapons are not.
For every 10 Wishes you make with Acquaint Fate on Wanderlust Invocation, you are guaranteed at least one 4-Star character or weapon.
Here are all the 5-Star characters you can get from Wanderlust Invocation:
There are a lot more 4-Star items than 5-Stars in the Banner, so here's every 4-Star character you can get from Wanderlust Invocation:
- Kujou Sara
- Kuki Shinobu
- Shikanoin Heizou
- Yun Jin
Hydro Archon Furina is finally here in version 4.2! She runs alongside Baizhu, and you need Lakelight Lily to Ascend Furina. Our Fontaine guide can help with Fontaine's Reputation and the Fountain of Lucine amongst other details, and you can also redeem new codes for Primogems, and check out our regularly updated tier list. You need luck from the Pity and 50/50 systems to Wish with Fate for characters on Banners, and you always need the right Adventure Rank for events. Elsewhere, we have tips and tricks for beginners, Dendroculus locations, fishing locations, and TCG card locations.
