Genshin Impact: How to Get Wishes for the Gacha

Genshin Impact How to Get Wishes

Wishes is what miHoYo decided to call the gacha system in Genshin Impact. While this is just one feature of many in the anime action RPG, it is heavily used by gamers willing to try every character they can, not to mention summoning the highest rarity weapons to go along with them. Unlocking new 5-star characters such as Mona, Venti or Diluc is a moment to remember, but for that you need different types of currency. This guide will show you how to get wishes in Genshin Impact.

If you pre-registered and took advantage of all the offers that Genshin Impact had for you at launch, you should be able to make a few pulls already. But if you're not aware of what you need, let's break down the necessary currencies.

There are three currencies for the gacha / wishes that you need to learn about: Acquaint Fate, Intertwined Fate (rarer), and Primogems. Primogems aren't used in wishes, but this is the currency that you can use to purchase the two other currencies. You get Primogems by progressing in the main story, completing daily quests, and by opening chests in the open world. Sometimes you receive free Primogems by redeeming Genshin Impact promo codes, so keep an eye out for our list. You can also earn Acquaint Fate currency in the Adventurer's Guild, as you increase your Adventurer's Rank.

With your precious Primogems, you can purchase Acquaint Fate and Intertwined Fate in the shop, under the Paimon's Bargains section. You should definitely save up your Fates, because while this will be more time-consuming, pulling ten wishes is more likely to get you some high rarity characters or materials. A 10-pull may also feature a discount, something that will make it worthwhile in the long run. Furthermore, having some Fates in stock could be vital in case a new and much-desired banner appears and you really want to give it a shot.

It goes without saying that another way of getting Acquaint Fate and Intertwined Fate is by spending real cash in the shop. When a free game is so accomplished and rich like Genshin Impact, saying thank you to the developers by spending a small amount is something that every player should do.
