Genshin Impact has always had a pity system for wishes. The pity system was one of the game’s many positives, making the pull system less tedious to get the characters they want, and thanks to it, players can know exactly how many primogems they need to accumulate to get the desired 5-star character. Along with this, Genshin Impact has a history page that allows players to view their previous draws.
The pity system in Genshin Impact is activated at 90 draws (80 per Weapon Banner) or 14400 Sourcestones spent on wishes. This means that when reaching 90 points, players are guaranteed to get a 5-star character no matter what. What’s more, Genshin Impact has a strict pity system, meaning if a player draws a 5-star character from a banner and doesn’t get the desired character, the next 5-star character they draw is guaranteed to be a character from the character’s banner.
The developers have also included a story feature in the Genshin Impact wish system. When a player views their history, they can view all of their achievements in the past and easily determine when they are guaranteed to get their next 4 or 5 star achievement. The story screen in Genshin Impact’s pity system is very useful, the page is a bit hidden and can be a little confusing at first, but once you find it, it’s easy to navigate.
How to find and view your wish history
Players can find their wish history in Genshin Impact by simply opening the Wish menu and looking at the bottom left corner of the screen. There, players will find the Shop, Details, and History buttons. The “Details” button will show players the characters and weapons that can be obtained from the Banner, while the “History” button is what players must click on to see their past wishes.
After selecting the History button, another screen will appear. At the top of the screen is a drop-down menu that allows players to switch between banners in Genshin Impact whose history they want to view. Once the desired banner has been selected, scrolling down will reveal a table showing what was done, on which banner, and at what time. There are left and right arrows at the bottom of the screen to scroll through the table, since only 6 hits are displayed in the table at a time.
Although it’s a little tedious, the quickest way for a player to find out how much is left until the next 4 or 5 star character is to count how many tugs they have done while their new 4 or 5 star character in Genshin Impact will not appear in the table. Another way is to look at the table and find the newest 5-star character, then multiply the page number by 6 and add or subtract as needed. It would be better if HoYoverse added a faster way for players to find out exactly how many pull-ups they need, but so far this is the best and fastest way in Genshin Impact.
