Genshin Impact pity system explained. Does pity carry over? How much do you have to roll for a guaranteed 5-Star? Do you always get a character? Let’s take a look at these frequently asked questions about the gacha system.

Gacha FAQ

What is pity?
It is a system that guarantees 5-Star rewards every 90 attempts and 4-Star rewards every 10 attempts.

Rewards? Does that mean I will get a character?
It depends on the banner. Character Event Banners guarantee to reward 5-Star characters at least once per 90 attempts.

Additionally if you don’t get the promotional character on your first 5-Star pull you are guaranteed it on the next.

This character guarantee however does not extend to 4-Star pity rewards.

Does pity carry over?
Yes but with a limitation. Pity count only carries over to banners of the same type. Eg. Wishes from Character Event Banners will carry over to other Character Event Banners (same goes for weapon banners).

As for the standard banner it’s not going anywhere but again any wishes accumulated on it are independent from wishes made on other banners.

This means accumulating pity on the standard banner will not count towards character event banners or weapon banners.
