The only way to unlock Layla in Genshin Impact 3.2 version is by pulling the character’s banner during The Everbloom Violet event wish. The Dendro character, Layla, will receive a huge drop rate boost during this event. This wish event ends with the 3.2 version; hence make sure you unlock the character on time. After that, Layla will be available in the standard wish “Wanderlust Invocation” in the next Genshin impact version.

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