Genshin Impact banners rotate every few weeks on a precise schedule, and we always know what to expect thanks to regular updates from Hoyoverse. The developer of the anime game always keeps its fans in the loop with regular Twitter posts and livestreams, so you can plan where you want to spend your hard-earned Primogems.

With a two to three-week turnaround for banners, the roster of Genshin Impact characters is always changing, and the free PC game regularly introduces two new characters to wish for. Every limited-time character banner – or Event Wish – contains a five-star character, and three four-star characters with increased drop rates. There’s also a Genshin Impact Weapon banner – Epitome Invocation – which runs alongside each character banner and changes weapons every update.
