Genshin Impact Banners are a very big part of the RNG nonsense within the game. There’s a lot of criticism to be made about the nature of this gacha game, but it is what it is. Banner characters mean that the rolls on the gacha boxes are much easier to predict. The game rotates the contents of the box to be in line with the banner. So that means that the characters and items shown in the banners are much more likely to come out of rolls.
Banners rotate all the time, and it’s always pretty hard to get 5-Star characters outside of the banner. The manipulation of RNG within the banners means that it’s best to save up as many Primogems as you can to roll enough to hope for the pity reward at worst. If you don’t get the 5-Star, the game will often give you a consolation roll after enough. Problem is, this is extremely expensive.
