Your one-stop guide on what's currently available, and what we have to look forward to...

Wish Banners are in many ways at the core of Genshin Impact. It’s how you grab new characters, and powerful new weapons. Planning out when to spend your primo gems so that you get the perfect new addition to your team is important, and as a result, so is knowing what is available.

So to help you figure out whether now is a good time to splash out your primo gem savings, we’ve created this ongoing guide let you know exactly what Wish banners are available right now in Genshin Impact, as well as when we can expect the next banner to come.

What are the next Genshin Impact banners?

We’re still due two new character banners soon as part of the 2.4 update. While we don’t know exactly what will be featured in each banner, we know that one will star Zhongli called Gentry of Hermitage, while the other will feature Ganyu and is named Adrift in the Harbor.

We’re currently unsure when these will be added exactly, but these are expected to drop within the month of January 2022.
