Honkai: Star Rail Banners are what you can spend your Star Pass currency on to Warp for characters and Light Cone weapons.

Every character event Banner runs for three weeks, making way for the next Banner. These event Banners have a single 5-Star character with boosted pull odds, and three boosted 4-Stars.

There are also Light Cone weapon Banners that change their featured 5-Star and 4-Star pulls every three weeks as well, and two permanent Banners available with their own unique character and Light Cone pools.

We’ve detailed what the next and current Banners are in Honkai: Star Rail below, along with a list of all Banners that have ran in the game since its 1.0 launch.

2.1 Banners

Drip marketing strikes again, meaning it's all but certain that new 5-Stars Acheron and Aventurine are on the 2.1 Banners in Honkai: Star Rail. Acheron is a Lightning attacker of The Nihility path who should come out in Phase 1, and Aventurine is an Imaginary attacker of The Preservation path likely to release in Phase 2 of version 2.1.

Gallagher will debut as one of the boosted 4-Star characters on either Acheron or Aventurine's Banners in 2.1, with Gallagher being a fire attacker of The Abundance path.

Keep in mind that even if a Light Cone has a picture of a specific character on it, you can still use that weapon on anybody to increase their stats. However, only characters who are on the same path as the Light Cone can benefit from its unique abilities.

Honkai Star Rail Departure Warp Banner

You can spend your regular Star Passes on the permanent Departure Warp Banner. However, if you've Warped 50 times on it, Departure Warp will no longer be available.

It's worth using your regular Star Rail Passes on the Departure Banner, as there's a 20% discount for a set of 10 Warps, so you get ten for the price of eight, and you are guaranteed a 5-Star character within these 50 total pulls.

There are seven 5-Star characters you can get from the Departure Warp Banner in Honkai: Star Rail:

  • Bailu
  • Bronya
  • Clara
  • Gepard
  • Himeko
  • Welt
  • Yanqing

Here's the 4-Star characters available in the Departure Warp Banner pool:

  • Arlan
  • Asta
  • Dan Heng
  • Herta
  • Hook
  • March 7th
  • Natasha
  • Pela
  • Qingque
  • Sampo
  • Serval
  • Sushang
  • Tingyun

Honkai Star Rail Regular Stellar Warp Banner

All 5-Star characters and Light Cones not included in event character Banners are available in Stellar Warp, a permanent Banner.

For every 10 Warps you make with regular Star Passes on Stellar Warp you are guaranteed at least one 4-Star character or Light Cone weapon.

When you make a total of 300 Warps on the regular Banner, you get to choose from any of the 5-Stars included on it.

Here are all the 5-Star characters you can get from the Regular Stellar Warp Banner:

  • Bailu
  • Bronya
  • Clara
  • Gepard
  • Himeko
  • Welt
  • Yanqing

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 Stellar Warp:

  • Arlan
  • Asta
  • Dan Heng
  • Guinaifen
  • Hanya
  • Herta
  • Hook
  • Luka
  • Lynx
  • March 7th
  • Natasha
  • Pela
  • Qingque
