The only way to unlock Candace in Genshin Impact 3.1 version is by pulling the character’s banner during the Ballad in Goblets event wish.

During this event, the Hydro character, Candace, will receive a huge drop rate boost. This wish event ends on October 14; hence make sure you unlock the character on time.

After that, Candace will be available in the standard wish “Wanderlust Invocation” in the next Genshin impact version.

If you weren’t aware, you will need to spend an in-game currency called Fate in the game’s wish menu to unlock the Candace.

Moreover, you will get a random character as the gacha pull system is similar to a lucky draw. As a result, you’ll need to reroll several times in order to obtain it.
