Genshin Impact Xiao Banner 4 Stars characters

Xiao's Banner has three 4-Star characters with boosted drop rates:

  • Barbara (Hydro)
  • Noelle (Geo)
  • Yanfei (Pyro)

While these aren’t the most sought-after 4-Star characters in Genshin Impact, they have been in the game for quite some time. Those who regularly Wish on Banners should already have them, which means if you do receive one of these 4-Stars from Xiao’s Banner, Invitation to Mundane Life, you will receive Masterless Starglitter.

Barbara, Noelle, and Yanfei are boosted in Xiao's current Banner.

One Intertwined Fate can be purchased for x5 Masterless Starglitter, which can then be used to Wish on a Xiao's Banner.

You get x2 Masterless Starglitter for pulling a 4-Star character you already have, and if that character’s Constellation level is fully upgraded, you get x5 Masterless Starglitter. This means you have a higher chance of getting discounted (or free) Wishes for Xiao if you do have all of the 4-star characters featured in his Banner.

Genshin Impact Xiao Banner characters and rates

Xiao isn't the only 5-Star you can get from the Invitation to Mundane Life Banner. However, With the 50/50 system in place, if you don't pull Xiao the first time you successfully Wish for a 5-Star item, you are guaranteed to get him the second time you pull a 5-Star item.

There's also the Pity and Soft Pity system, so you are more likely to get Xiao after your 75th Wish, and are guaranteed a 5-Star item at 90 Wishes, if you haven't already got one. In the very worst case scenario, you will get Xiao after your 180th Wish, but these are very unlikely odds.

Xiao's Banner in the 2.7 update version.

These Pity and 50/50 systems are shared with Yelan's Banner, so if you have pulled a 5-Star weapon, or character other than Xiao or Yelan from either Banner, you can guarantee Xiao will be your next 5-Star pull when Wishing on Invitation to Mundane Life.

4-Star Characters on Xiao's Banner are easier to get. Xiao is only guaranteed after 180 Wishes, whereas a featured 4-Star character is guaranteed after 20 Wishes. The featured 4-Star characters have their own 50/50 system, so if you don't pull Barbara, Noelle, or Yanfei the first time you pull a 4-Star weapon or character, one of them will be guaranteed the next time you successfully Wish for a 4-Star item.

Here’s every character and their base drop rates in Xiao’s Banner, Invitation to Mundane Life:

  • Xiao (5-Star Anemo): 0.6%
  • Diluc (5-Star Pyro): 0.6%

Xiao Banner end date

The current Xiao Banner releases on Tuesday, 31st May 2022, the same time as the 2.7 update. He is part of the 2.7 Phase 1 Banners, featured alongside the new Yelan Banner.

Lasting three weeks, the 2.7 Xiao Banner ends on Tuesday, 21st June 2022. The only Phase 2 Banner, Oni’s Royale, featuring Arataki Itto and Kuki Shinobu will then replace the Xiao and Yelan event Banners.

If you haven’t successfully wished for Xiao by then, there will be other opportunities to Wish for him in a Invitation to Mundane Life Banner rerun! However, character reruns are never consistent, so if you really want Xiao, you should spend your Intertwined Fates on Wishing for him now.

Good luck Wishing on Xiao’s Banner!
