Gacha system and banners in Honkai Star Rail: how to get characters and weapons

Gacha system and banners in Honkai Star Rail

Here's everything you need to know about the various banners in Honkai: Star Rail and which one you should spin.

In addition to the beautifully designed open world, in Honkai: Star Rail there are a huge number of characters that players can use. Each character has their own paths and elements that define their role in the team. To get most of these characters, you will have to rely on the game's gacha system.

After playing the game for a while, you will meet Asta in the main story, and after talking to her, the gacha system will open. The game also gives you one free drop, where you are guaranteed to get Asta for free, which is pretty handy.

How the Honkai Star Rail Starting Jump banner works

The starting jump is the starting banner that permanently unlocked for every player after talking to Asta. You will use Star Passes or Star Jade to spin this banner, but its peculiarity is that you will receive a 20% discount for your twists. This means you can make a top ten with just eight passes.

If you don't have enough passes when you hit the jump button, the game will ask you if you want to use jade for the rest.

Not recommended use jade on the newcomer banner or, because they are not limited.

This banner remains in play until you have completed 50 spins with it, and you are guaranteed to get one of the seven five-star characters at the 50th spin. In addition, you are also guaranteed to receive at least one light cone or character with four stars in every ten tries. There are also a variety of three-star characters that you will receive when you call.

Here are all the characters you can get from this banner:

4 star characterMarch 7 Dan Heng ArlanAsta
4 star characterHerthaNatashaServalsang

Additionally,  you can also randomly get up to 21 XNUMX-Star and XNUMX-Star Light Cones.

These light cones can be used on any character with the same path, making them worth looking into.

Some parts of the gacha system are used by all banners except the lightcone event banner, for example:

  • Exist 0,600% chance to get a five-star drop, when you spin the banner once. You can also get five stars on the tenth jump, which should guarantee four stars.
  • In addition to the cruel guarantor, there is 5,100% chance to get a four-star character or a light cone with every jump.
  • You'll get 40 Everlasting Starlight for every 20-Star Light Cone, XNUMX Everlasting Starlight for every XNUMX-Star Light Cone, and XNUMX Everlasting Ashes for every XNUMX-Star Light Cone struck on any banner.
  • When you get a five-star character more than once, you will receive one of their Eidolons and 40 Unquenchable Starlight. Getting the same character eight times or more will give you 100 unquenchable starlight instead, as you will be at max Eidolon.
  • Obtaining a four-star character two or more times will grant to you their Eidolon and eight inextinguishable starlight.

You can use Undying Starlight and Ashes in the Shop to get more jumps, characters, light cones or items to upgrade.

How the Star Jump banner works in Honkai Star Rail


Banner Star Jump is standard banner in Honkai: Star Rail, which remains in the game forever. You can also get the same five star characters, four star characters, four star light cones and three star light cones in this banner. Although there are a few major differences:

  • This banner includes up to seven luminous cones with five stars, which you can get when you knock out five-star characters. There is no guarantee that you will get a five-star character, so you may want to knock out a few five-star light cones before you get a character here.
  • The guarantor for a four-star item is the same, but the guarantor for five-star in this banner increased to 90.

In addition to these differences, there is also a "Additional Rewards" section, which you will be able to see on the banner. This section tracks the total number of attempts you've made, and you can choose any five-star reward if you make a total of 300 jumps.

Even though the characters and light cones you can get are pretty much the same, they don't share a guarantee.

It means that jumps made on these banners will be counted separately, even if they use the same gaps.

How the Jump event banner works: Character in Honkai Star Rail


This is the main attraction in the Honkai: Star Rail gacha system. character jump banner contains one limited five-star character that can only be obtained from this banner. Each character banner lasts 21 days, and there are two cycles of character event banners in each update.

If any of the new four-star character, it will be added to other banners after the expiration of the exclusive banner.

The guarantor and chances of getting five or four stars in this banner are the same as in the standard banner, but there are a few differences:

  • You can get only five star characters, but there are no five-star light cones.
  • The first time you get a five-star character, there is a 50% chance that he will be the main character. If you don't get a Featured Character as your first XNUMX-Star, that character is guaranteed to be the next XNUMX-Star.

We share a guarantor to a variety of character jump events. This means that if you spin a certain banner 50 times and it disappears, ​​you will still have 50 guarantor for the next banner. If there are multiple character event banners at the same time, the guarantor will also be divided between them.

This is the perfect banner to spend Star Jade on. Although it is recommended to save your jade and passes until you have enough for a guarantor, unless you need one of the featured four-star characters. Unlike the two banners mentioned above, the Character and Light Cone event banners require special Star Passes.

In addition to the hard guarantor 90, standard banners and character event banners also have a soft guarantee starting after 75.

It's not mentioned in the game, but you have 50% chance to get five stars on 76th-80th jump.

How the Jump event banner works: Light Cone in Honkai Star Rail


If you've played Genshin Impact, you might be intimidated by the light cone banner in Star Rail. Luckily, this game has a much better system.. There is only one five-star light cone that belongs to the respective character, and there are also three four-star light cones.

The lightcone event banner has several significant differences from any other banner in the game:

  • You have 0,800 and 6,600 percent chance of getting five and four stars respectively each time you spin. Also, you can only get five-star light cones in this banner, but you can still get four-star characters and light cones.
  • The five-star guarantee on this banner drops to 80, and the soft guarantor starts from the 65th twist.
  • There is a 75% chance that your first five-star drop will land on a light cone banner. Besides, you are guaranteed to get a marked light cone on the second five-star jump, if you don't get it at first.

As with the character event jump, the difference between different jumping weapon events is common. Although, if you're a low spender or F2P player, you might not want to use the weapon banner at the start of the game. A character's signature weapon can enhance his abilities, but it's more important to get a lot of characters first.

When you get to the late game, you won't be able to use the same team in every battle due to the weakness system. That's why you need a wide range of characters from different paths and elements.
