"Chronicled Wish" is a new type of Event Wish that allows you to wish for certain rerun characters and weapons.
When you obtain a 5-star item in this Event Wish, there is a 50.000% chance it will be the character you want.

During Version 4.5, a new type of Event Wish: "Chronicled Wish" will become available. It is a special banner that allows you to grab some of the characters you may have missed out on. The first iteration of the Chronicled Wish banner features some of the Standard characters along with Klee, Albedo and Eula. There is a way to guarantee what you want but it is going to require a lot of your Primogems. Here's a quick breakdown of how the Chronicled Wish system works in Genshin Impact version 4.5 from Hoyoverse's official blogpost.

Genshin Impact Chronicled Wish System Overview

"Chronicled Wish" is a new type of Event Wish that allows you to wish for certain rerun characters and weapons. Wishes for "Chronicled Wish" require Intertwined Fate. Before wishing, you must choose your "Chronicled Path" by selecting a 5-star character or weapon from the list of 5-star items. If the Designated Item is a character, the 5-star items you can obtain in the Wish will all be characters; whereas if the Designated Item is a weapon, the 5-star items you can obtain in the Wish will all be weapons.

There are guarantees for both the 5-star and 4-star items in the Wish. A maximum of 90 wishes conducted will secure a 5-star item through the guarantee. When you obtain a 5-star item in this Event Wish, there is a 50.000% chance it will be the Designated Item. You are guaranteed to win a 4-star or above item at least once every 10 attempts.

"Chronicled Path" Rules in Genshin Impact

After choosing a 5-star item as your Designated Item, if you obtain a 5-star item that was not your Designated Item, you will receive 1 Fate Point. Once you have reached the maximum amount of Fate Points (1 Fate Point), the next 5-star item you obtain through this Wish is guaranteed to be your Designated Item.

Obtaining the current Designated Item or changing your choice will reset the Fate Points to 0.

To take Version 4.5's Chronicled Wish as an example, if you chose the character "Dandelion Knight" Jean (Anemo) as your Designated Item, then the 5-star items you might receive would be limited to the characters in the image below (and would therefore not include weapons). As Jean is the Designated Item, if you were to receive the character "Dance of the Shimmering Wave" Eula (Cryo) instead, you would receive 1 Fate Point (the maximum amount). The next 5-star item that you'd obtain would then be guaranteed to be Jean.

Example Scenario:

In the current "Chronicled Wish," you chart a course towards "Dandelion Knight" Jean (Anemo) but the first 5-star character you obtain is "Fleeing Sunlight" Klee (Pyro). As this character is not Jean, you obtain 1 Fate Point for "Chronicled Path."

You make another 10 wishes during the same "Chronicled Wish," but don't receive a 5-star item, so you are still 80 wishes away from being guaranteed a 5-star item. You then don't make any other wishes during the current "Chronicled Wish."

Once the next "Chronicled Wish" begins, your accumulated wish count is carried over from the last "Chronicled Wish," but your Fate Points for "Chronicled Path" are reset to 0. In the new "Chronicled Wish," you will be guaranteed to obtain a 5-star item after 80 wishes, and there is a 50.000% chance that it will be the current Designated Item.

Upcoming Chronicled Wish Banners Will Feature Different Characters

The items in each different "Chronicled Wish" period may change. For details, please stay tuned for "Chronicled Wish" event notices.

Only event-exclusive 5-star characters that have already appeared in the "Character Event Wish" or "Character Event Wish-2" at least 3 times and have also not appeared in any recent Event Wishes will appear in "Chronicled Wish."

Event-exclusive 5-star characters that have already appeared in "Chronicled Wish" may still appear in future "Chronicled Wishes" or other types of Event Wishes.

"Chronicled Wish" events will be available from time to time. Please stay tuned to our official news for detailed information about when they will be available.
