While there are 24 playable characters in Genshin Impact, only a select number will join your party as part of the game’s main storyline. Most characters, especially the four and five star ones, can only be acquired through either making Wishes or by purchasing them from Paimon’s Deals at the Shop. Here’s how to get Venti in Genshin Impact.
How to Get Venti in Genshin Impact
As we’ve mentioned in our best characters guide, Venti is one of Genshin Impact’s high tier characters as of the meta right now. His wind elemental AoE attacks are superb, as is his ability to traverse the open world by propelling himself into the air.
In terms of how you actually go about getting him, just as with other five star characters you’ll have to keep your fingers crossed that you get him as a Wish reward. The banner you need to choose is called Ballad in Goblets. It’s the second option on the Wish menu.
This is the special promotional character banner that offers a higher chance of pulling Venti than the standard banner (50% if you haven’t pulled a 5-Star after 89 Wishes). You can read more on the game’s pity system if you want to learn more about drop rate percentages.
But as a basic overview, Wishes are the gacha mechanic in Genshin Impact that you’ll unlock after reaching Adventure Rank 5 and speaking with the Knights of Favonius in Mondstadt.
To make Wishes you need either Acquaint or Intertwined Fate depending on which banner you opt for. In the case of the Ballad in Goblets banner, its Intertwined Fate. You can make individual Wishes or purchase a batch of 10, which costs either x1 or x10 Intertwined Fate.
You will have some free currency at the beginning of the game, but if you don’t have enough then you will have to purchase more with Primogems. This is a common currency found throughout the game that is earned as a reward for basically doing anything. 160 Primogems gets you a single Acquint/Intertwined Fate.
If you don’t want to wait, you buy the premium Genesis Crystal currency from the Shop and then in turn convert them to Primogems.
Alternatively, if you’re absolutely dead set on getting Venti right from the start as a free-to-play roll then you might consider rerolling if you don’t get him after making your very first free Wishes. It takes 30-45 minutes per reroll. You can read more about the process here.
