Considered to be one of the game’s strongest main DPS characters to date, those seeking to have “Fragrance in Thaw” Hu Tao join their party may need only wait a few more days. Following the three-week run of the Childe Banner, the Moment of Bloom character wish event banner will see 5-star Pyro Spear-user Hu Tao up for grabs.
She will be available alongside three featured 4-star characters: the newly introduced Thoma (Pyro Spear User), Diona (Cryo Bow User) and Sayu (Anemo Claymore User).
The way that the Character Event Wish banners work is that when you manage to pull a 5-star character or weapon from the banner, you have a 50% chance of it being the featured character (In this case, Hu Tao), with the second successful 5-star pull guaranteeing you that character. While characters change, the number of pulls towards a “hard pity” 5-star and your progression towards a featured character pull is retained. Featured 4-stars on the other hand will be guaranteed 50% of the time you manage to pull a 4-star weapon or character.
Keep in mind that the wish banner system is Genshin Impact’s main form of gacha or loot box mechanics. While you are able to get a considerable amount of Primogems (Genshin Impact’s premium currency), just be careful if you are prone to uncontrollable spending or FOMO, as the in-game currency isn’t necessarily cheap either.
Genshin Impact is now available to download on the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, iOS and Android platforms.
