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:
- Beginners' Wish Banner
- Wanderlust Invocation Banner
- Current character event Banners
- Current Epitome Invocation Banner
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 system, 50/50 system, and boosted 4-Star characters.
Developer MiHoYo has officially confirmed that the Genshin Impact 3.0 release date will be Wednesday, 24th August. At this point any remaining 2.8 banners will end and you'll be able to explore the Sumeru region.
Now that the 3.0 livestream has come and gone, we know what to expect from the 3.0 Phase 1 and 2 Character Banners. Though, it's important to note, that we don't have the end date for Phase 1, so it's unclear when the Phase 2 Banners will be made available.
Phase 1 of 3.0 will begin with the Virdescent Vigil banner - which feature 5-star Tighnari and 4-star Collei - and a rerun of Gentry of Hermitage, which features 5-star Zhongli and 4-star Collei. It's important to note that Collei will have a high drop-rate boost for both of these banners and, after 3.1, Tighnari will enter the standard wish banner.
Phase 2 of 3.0 consists of two reruns, but both will have a high drop-rate boost for 4-star Dori. Aside from this, Adrift in the Harbor, which features 5-star Ganyu, will return, as will Drifting Luminescence, which features 5-star Sangonomiya Kokomi.
At the time of writing, we haven't heard anything about the 3.0 weapon banners. A number of new weapons have, however, been annouced alongside the 3.0 release date.
Genshin Impact next Epitome Invocation Banner weapons
Epitome Invocation is a permanent weapon Banner with boosted 5-Star and 4-Star weapons that usually change 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.
Epitome Invocation changes its boosted weapons on Tuesday, 23rd August, when Genshin Impact’s servers should go down in preparation for the big 3.0 update and new character and weapon Banners.
There has been no official confirmation on what weapons the next Epitome Invocation banner will contain. We do know, however, that two new bows will be introduced as part of 3.0 - the first is the 5-star Hunter's Path, while the second is the 4-star End of the Line. Considering Hunter's Path is a 5-star weapon, we wouldn't be surprised if it was part of a weapon banner.
As Zhongli and Ganyu might be getting reruns, then we can also expect to see their signature 5-Star weapons, Vortex Vanquisher and Amos' Bow, respectively, featured in Epitome Invocation alongside their event Banner reruns.
Remember, none of this has been officially confirmed yet, so take all this speculation with a grain of salt to avoid disappointment for the next Banners in Genshin Impact. We will update this page when any official information comes from MiHoYo in what the next weapon Banners will be.
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
Genshin Impact current character event Banners

The release of Genshin Impact 2.8 is here! You'll need to be the right Adventure Rank to take part in events to get a free Fischl, collect Phantasmal Conches for a Fischl skin, and solve astral puzzles. You can now spend Primogems on 5-Star Yoimiya, and as always, you can visit our Genshin Impact tier list to see how your characters measure up, find out how the Pity and 50/50 system works when Wishing with Fate, and see who you can pull from the next and current Banners.
