Genshin Impact Banners are what you can spend your Fate currency on to Wish for characters and weapons.
Every character event Banner usually runs for three weeks, making way for the next Banner, which always has a single 5-Star character with boosted pull odds, and three boosted 4-Stars.
There is also a weapon Banner that changes its featured 5-Star and 4-Star pulls every three weeks, and two permanent Banners with their own unique character and weapon pools.
We’ve detailed what the next and current Banners are in Genshin Impact below, along with a list of all Banners that have ran in the game since its 1.0 launch.
On this page:
- Current character event Banners
- Current Epitome Invocation Banner
- Beginners' Wish Banner
- Wanderlust Invocation Banner
For all other information on current and future events, check out our 3.8 Banners and events schedule.
Genshin Impact next Banner event characters
For these temporary event character Banners, you have to use Intertwined Fate to Wish on them, and they usually change every three weeks. Sometimes there will only be one event character Banner, and sometimes there are two. When there are two, they share the same pity, 50/50 system, and boosted 4-Star characters.
Lyney and Yelan are the next Banners in Genshin Impact during Phase 1 of version 4.0, with new 4-Star Lynette appearing on both Banners. Lyney is a Pyro Archer on his Conjuring Chiaroscuro Banner, and Yelan is a Hydro archer on her Discerner of Enigmas Banner. Lynette, the 4-Star boosted character on both Banners, is an Anemo sword-user.
It's worth keeping in mind for your Wishing plans that Lynette is rewarded for free when you reach Adventure Rank 25.
Then in Phase 2 of version 4.0 we have Zhongli, a Geo polearm-user, on his Gentry of Hermitage Banner, and Tartaglia (AKA Childe), a Hydro archer, on his Farewell of Snezhnaya Banner. Freminet, the 4-Star boosted character on both Banners, is a Cryo claymore-user.
Genshin Impact next Epitome Invocation Banner weapons
Epitome Invocation is a permanent weapon Banner with boosted 5-Star and 4-Star weapons that usually changes every three weeks, at the same time new event character Banners are added. Just like these character Banners, you must use Intertwined Fate to Wish on Epitome Invocation.
As revealed in the 4.0 livetsream The First Great Magic will be on the next weapon Banner in Genshin Impact. This 5-Star bow is Lyney's signature weapon. Although not confirmed, as Yelan is running alongside Lyney, the 5-Star Aqua Simulacra should be the other weapon on Epitome Invocation, as it's Yelan's signature.
As we're getting Zhongli and Childe in Phase 2 of version 4.0, the next weapon Banner after Phase 1 should feature the Vortex Vanquisher and Polar Star, as they're considered Zhongli and Childe's signature weapons, respectively.

Genshin Impact Beginners' Wish Banner
You can spend your Acquaint Fate on the permanent Beginners' Wish Banner. However, if you've Wished 20 times on it, Beginners' Wish will no longer be available.
After spending 10 Acquaint Fate on Beginners' wish you will get a guaranteed 4-Star Geo character, Noelle. After 20 Acquaint Fate is used, you'll then get another guaranteed 5-Star or 4-Star character from a select pool.
There are five 5-Star characters you can get from the Beginners' Wish Banner:
Here's the 4-Star characters available in the Beginners' Wish Banner pool:
Genshin Impact Wanderlust Invocation Banner
All 5-Star characters and Weapons not included in event character Banners are available in Wanderlust Invocation, a permanent Banner. New 4-Star characters are added to it in the update after their original Banner debut, but event-exclusive 4-Star weapons are not.
For every 10 Wishes you make with Acquaint Fate on Wanderlust Invocation, you are guaranteed at least one 4-Star character or weapon.
Here are all the 5-Star characters you can get from Wanderlust Invocation:
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 Wanderlust Invocation:
- Kujou Sara
- Kuki Shinobu
- Shikanoin Heizou
- Yun Jin
