Genshin Impact Banners: Current and upcoming character wishes, including Shenhe and Yun Jin

While it's free-to-play, one transactional system is at the very core of Genshin Impact - the random-chance 'gacha' system, which allows you to spend in-game currency or real cash in order to have a random lucky draw that'll hopefully contain powerful characters or weapons.

In the gacha genre, often the lucky draws are split into Banners, and so too is the case for the gacha-based wish system in Genshin Imapct. A few banners will basically be permanent fixtures, but the majority of them will rotate over time, with special promotional banners featuring an increased drop rate for certain characters and weapons

This page lists all of the current and upcoming Wish Banners in Genshin Impact, but the page is best used in tandem with our other guides so you can go in fully informed:

Genshin Impact Banners: Current Character Rotation

Here's the current banners in Genshin Impact, updated as of January 10, 2022. These banners are for the North American, European, and Asian servers - the Chinese servers operate separately. Banners will be updated at some point in the day for you, based on the Daily Reset time

Remember that the "Wanderlust Invocation" wish is your standard wish, and is always present - it doesn't time out, and is just a general wish against all available characters and weapons, with no special boosted drops.

In patch 2.3, MiHoYo updated the banner system to include two five-star characters. This is to give players more chances at beloved heroes as the roster begins to grow by keeping the rotation frequently rolling. This new system runs two, separate five-star banners at the same time (sharing four-stars) - so be sure you're pulling on the appropriate character.
