Genshin Impact banner – current and upcoming characters

If you were looking to fill out your Genshin Impact character roster, you would no doubt have come across the “Wish” feature in-game. Here you can wish on a Genshin Impact banner some of the best units and weapons currently available in the popular ARPG by HoYoverse.

When using Intertwined or Acquaint Fates, players may want different types of Genshin Impact Banner for new characters: the “Character Event Wish” banner – which offers a rotating selection of featured characters – or the permanent “Standard Wish” banner. There is also a featured weapon banner, where players can try to nab the signature weapon for five-star premium units on Character Event Wish banners.

Along with a premium five-star unit that has a higher chance of being drawn, Character Event Wish banners also significantly increase the rates for three featured four-star units. But what is the current banner of Genshin Impact? And what is the next Genshin Impact banner? Continue reading to learn more.


The current Genshin Impact banners for the Character Event Wish are Reign of Serenity and Drifting Luminescence. The five-star premium characters for these banners are Raiden Shogun and Sangonomiya Kokomi respectively. Both characters debuted in September 2021, so it’s unlikely we’ll see them again for some time after this rerun.

Alongside Raiden and Kokomi, players also have an increased chance of pulling four-star characters currently featured for these banners. Here are the characters currently featured on Character Event Wish banners:

  • Raiden Shogun (five stars)
  • Sangonomiya Kokomi (five stars)
  • Bennett (four stars)
  • Kujou Sara (four stars)
  • Xinyan (four stars)


The current Genshin Impact banner for weapons includes Raiden Shogun’s Engulfing Lightning polearm and Sangonomiya Kokomi’s Everlasting Moonglow Catalyst.

Along with these five-star weapons, players also have an increased chance to fire the four-star weapons currently featured on this banner. Here are the weapons currently available on the weapon banner:

  • Engulfing Lightning (five stars) (Hast)
  • Everlasting Moonglor (five stars) (Catalyst)
  • Akuoumaru (four stars) (Claymore)
  • Mouun’s Moon (four stars) (bow)
  • Lion’s Roar (four stars) (Sword)
  • Favonius Lance (four stars) (Hast)
  • Sacrificial Shards (four stars) (Catalyst)


For any Acquaint Fates you may have earned playing the game, the Standard Wish banner is where you will come to use them. This is a permanent banner, with a pool of non-event-exclusive characters and weapons available to you.

All four-star characters can be drawn from this banner, though new four-star units won’t be added to the pool until one patch after their original release date.

Genshin Impact Banner: The Standard Wish Banner

Here are the five-star characters currently available on the Standard Wish banner:

  • Diluc
  • Jeans
  • Kiqing
  • mona
  • Qiqi


Although still to be confirmed, the next Genshin Impact banner is expected to feature new character Kamisato Ayato. With Kamisato Ayato’s release date just around the corner, the leader of the Kamisato clan and brother of Ayaka could easily debut on Genshin Impact 2.6 as one of the best characters in the game.

Respected leaker “Lumie” has suggested that Venti will have a replay banner alongside Ayato in the first half of 2.6. There have also been rumors that Kazuha, Klee, and Yoimiya might appear in 2.6 at some point.

And this is the Genshin Impact banner list at the moment. As always, we’ll be sure to update this guide as soon as the next Genshin Impact banner is confirmed.
