Genshin Impact Nilou & Albedo Banners Arrive 14 October With Beidou, Xiangliang, Barbara

Nilou’s and Albedo’s banners will be available in Genshin Impact this Friday! Set to arrive on 14 October, the event wish for these two 5-star characters will be accompanied by Beidou, Xiangling, and Barbara.

In line with previous Genshin Impact double banners, Nilou and Albedo both share the same roster of 4-star characters despite the fact that they’re featured in separate event wishes. Of course, pity is also shared between the two banners, and the wish guarantee count will carry over to future character banners too.

Just like Genshin Impact’s previous character event wishes, the “drop rate” of Nilou, Albedo, Beidou, Xiangling, and Barbara will be increased. In the case of Nilou and Albedo, the first 5-star character you get will have a 50% chance to be either of them, depending on which banner you’re wishing. If you got a different character, the next 5-star character you roll is guaranteed to be them.

Since Genshin Impact’s pity system for character banners ensures that you will get at least one 5-star character every 90 wishes, you will have to do 180 rolls for a guaranteed Nilou or Albedo. The same rule applies to 4-star characters (guaranteed every 10-roll instead), but given that there are three of them featured in the banner, it’s a little bit more random.

Basically, when you’re guaranteed a 4-star character from the banner, you will get either Beidou, Xiangling, or Barbara. If you’re aiming to get either one of these three characters, you will likely have to roll a good number of times, depending on your luck.

Nilou’s “Twirling Lotus” and Albedo’s “Secretum Secretorum” event wishes will be available in Genshin Impact on 14 October 2022. Their banners will be offered until 1 November, and we can expect Nahida’s and Layla’s event wishes to be available once the Version 3.2 update is released on 2 November.
