Next Genshin Impact banner: release date, time, and featured characters [Version 3.2]

Current event: Nahida's debut alongside a surprise rerun for Yoimiya! Up next: Yae Miko and Tartaglia's reruns introduce Layla

Who is featured on the Genshin Impact banners in Version 3.1, and when will it go live? Genshin Impact works on a gacha system, where players can spend various in-game and real-world currencies to Wish on a character's banner in the hopes of obtaining a playable version of them.

While many characters are permanently available as potential pulls from the gacha, others — usually 5-star characters — are only available during limited periods as part of Character Event Wish banners. Every Character Event Wish banner features one 5-star character and three 4-star characters with a massively increased drop rate, and the 5-star character is often unique to the banner and unobtainable in any other way.

On this page, we've compiled everything we know about Genshin Impact's current and upcoming banners, including release dates and times for the next banner changeover. Further down the page, we've included some information about characters who are available to purchase from the current and upcoming stock in Paimon's Bargains.

Genshin Impact: current event banners

The concurrent Character Event Wish banners in Genshin Impact for Version 3.2 (Phase I) are The Moongrass' Englightenment and Tapestry of Golden Flames. The former introduces Nahida, a brand new 5-star Dendro catalyst character who plays a pivotal role in the central Sumeru storyline of Version 3. The latter, meanwhile, is a somewhat surprising second rerun for Yoimiya, who last appeared in the gacha back in August.

These banners have been available to wish on since Wednesday, November 2nd at 3am GMT (which, for readers in the US, means 11pm EDT / 8pm PDT on Tuesday, November 1st). They are due to end on Friday, November 18th at 5pm GMT / 6pm EST / 3pm PST.

There are also three 4-star characters who are featured on both banners with an increased drop rate: Bennett, Razor, and Noelle. Note that while the trio of promoted 4-star characters can be pulled from either banner, the featured 5-star characters can only be pulled by wishing on their own individual banner. However, pity accumulates on and is shared between both concurrent Character Event Wish banners.

See below for full details on the characters with increased drop rates on the current banners:

Genshin Impact: future event banners

Version 2.3 Phase II will begin on Friday, November 18th at 5pm GMT / 6pm EST / 3pm PST. Confirmed 5-star reruns in this phase are Yae Miko and Tartaglia. There will be no new 5-star characters on the phase, but both banners will jointly feature the introduction of Layla, who is now confirmed to be a 4-star.

Thoma and Shikanoin Heizou will be joining Layla to complete the banners' trio of featured 4-star characters with a boosted drop rate.

Paimon's Bargains and the Starglitter Exchange

Wishes and banners aren't quite the only way to increase your party roster in Genshin Impact. There is another corner of the in-game store where you can potentially get your hands on some new playables. Check out Paimon's Bargains for a regularly rotated stock of common 4-star characters you can purchase outright in exchange for Masterless Starglitter, a currency generated from pulling duplicate characters and high-end weapons from the gacha.

The Starglitter Exchange features two characters every calendar month, and though they're a little pricey at 34 Masterless Starglitter each, this is a guaranteed purchase rather than a gamble. For November 2022, the characters in the Starglitter Exchange are Bennett and Lisa.

Paimon's Bargains seem to work on a regular half-yearly rotation, so here's who we can likely expect to see on offer in the Starglitter Exchange over the next few months:

Genshin Impact gets a new event banner every three weeks, so be sure to check back for news about upcoming banners!

In the meantime, if you're eager to get wishing but have made the commendable choice not to put your real money into a gacha, our guide on getting more Primogems in Genshin Impact can help you to maximise your in-game earnings.
