Genshin Impact 4.5 Update Chronicled Wish: New banner explained

Genshin Impact Chronicled Wish

Genshin Impact Version 4.5 Phase 1 banner has gone live after the server maintenance on the 13th of March, 2024, and will last till the 2nd of April, 2024 at 17:59 server time. Phase 1 banners include a new type of banner called the Chronicled Wish, which will run concurrently with the character and weapon banners. This banner has a few new rules, with their own set of pros and cons. This Genshin Impact article will go over everything there is to know about Chronicled Wish to help players decide whether to pull on it or not in the Version 4.5 Update.

Genshin Impact Version 4.5 Update Chronicled Wish Banner: Ode to the Dawn Breeze

First of all, this banner exists to make it easier to pull for certain event-exclusive characters and weapons that have not had a rerun in a long while and had at least three rate-up banners in the past. This is the first Chronicled Wish and it features characters and weapons from Mondstadt, and a few weapons from Sumeru.

The best part of this banner is that one can chart a course for your desired character/weapon. But this system also has its caveats and we will get to it in a while.

Genshin Impact Version 4.5 Chronicled Wish: The Rules of Wishing

The rules for wishing on this banner are pretty complex.

  • You need to spend Intertwined Fates for this banner, this is the same currency as the character and weapon banners
  • Hard pity is 90 pulls
  • Losing 50/50 once means the next 5* will be the desired one. Losing 50/50 grants 1 Fate point just like the weapon banner. Only 1 Fate point is required to guarantee the desired item
  • You need to select which 5* character/weapon you want to pull for
  • If you lose 50/50, you will get a 5* of the same type. This means if you selected a 5* character then you will get one of the other 5* characters from the pool. Likewise, if you selected a 5* weapon then you will get one of the other 5* weapons from the pool. It is possible to select an event-exclusive 5* character like Albedo and lose 50/50 to another event-exclusive 5* character like Klee. You will never get a weapon from losing 50/50 if you selected a character, and vice versa
  • Pity count for this banner is counted separately from the character banners. For example, Chiori and Itto banners share the same pity count. If you made 40 pulls on the 4.4 banners then your pity for Chiori/Itto will be 40. However, your pity for Chronicled Wish starts from 0
  • Pity count carries over when the Chronicled Wish banner changes. This is the first Chronicled Wish banner, if you make 50 pulls this time without getting a 5* when the banner changes you will still have 50 pity towards the next character/weapon from that banner
  • Unfortunately, Fate points do not carry over to the next banner. If you lost 50/50 once, you better have enough pulls saved to get another 5* before the banner ends, or else it would have been a total waste

Genshin Impact Version 4.5 Chronicled Wish: Advantages

  • This banner is the best way to obtain older 5* characters like Eula, Albedo, and Klee who have not had a rerun in a long while. Their banners were not selling well compared to most other 5* so their reruns were less frequent. Putting all of them in one banner is great for fans of them who were unable to pull for them. It also wastes less time and makes the rerun cycles quicker so more desirable characters can get their reruns sooner
  • This banner is currently the only way to obtain standard characters on guarantee. Normally, there is no way to pull for a certain standard character. It is a matter of a toss of the die. If you never got to pull Jean from the standard banner or lose 50/50 to her from the character banners, this is the only way you can obtain her on a guarantee.
  • This banner is currently the only way to obtain Beacon of the Reed Sea and Hunter’s Path. These are the signature weapons of Dehya and Tighnari, both of whom are now available in the standard banner. These weapons received their rate-up banners when these characters were first released, but then the weapons were never made available again. These weapons are good not just for Dehya and Tighnari but also for several other characters
  • The best thing about this banner is that it makes weapons much easier to obtain than the actual weapon banner. The weapon banner has a hard pity of 80 pulls but requires 2 Fate points to get your desired weapon: meaning you need to lose 50/50 twice to get your desired weapon. That’s 80×3 = 240 pulls to get your desired weapon on guarantee. This banner has a hard pity of 90 but it only requires 1 Fate point, meaning you need 90×2 = 180 pulls to get your desired weapon on guarantee.

Genshin Impact Version 4.5 Chronicled Wish: Disadvantages

  • Currently, the banner does not feature any must-pull characters or weapons
  • The fact that Fate points do not carry over makes this banner extremely avoidable unless you have around 160 pulls to guarantee your desired character/weapon. Normally in the character banners, you could lose 50/50 in the 4.4 banners but rest easy knowing that Chiori/Itto would be guaranteed in 4.5. You simply do not have that luxury with this banner
  • There are 3 standard characters and 3 event-exclusive characters. There is a really good chance of losing 50/50 to a standard character. It would feel extremely frustrating to lose 50/50 to a standard character when the banner also features event-exclusive 5* characters. No one wants to lose to Diluc when they could have lost to Eula
  • There are too many standard weapons in the pool which makes it more likely that when you lose 50/50, you will obtain a standard weapon that you could have obtained from the standard banner or the regular weapon banner. At least for the character pool the number of event-exclusive and standard characters is even
  • Another baffling thing about the weapon pool is that it does not contain the Primordial Jade-Winged Spear, which is Xiao’s signature best-in-slot weapon. Xiao is the only event-exclusive character whose signature best-in-slot weapon is available in the standard banner. It makes no sense that it is not available on this banner
  • This banner requires Intertwined Fates, which puts pressure on your savings for the character banners

Final Thoughts

  • DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES pull on this banner if you do not have around 160 pulls saved up. It simply isn’t worth wasting the Fate point if you lose 50/50
  • ONLY pull on this banner if you desperately need/want a certain character/weapon. Otherwise, pull on the regular character banners
