Honkai Star Rail Wish Counter: How Many Pulls To Get A 5 Star?

Honkai Star Rail has a pity system that guarantees you 5 star characters after doing enough Warps.
Players need to spend 90 Warps to get a guaranteed 5 star character or light cone.
Despite the hard pity being 90, players can expect a 5-star in the 70-80 Warp range.

Honkai Star Rail has a summoning system known as ‘Warp’ that lets you get characters and light cones (weapons). While the system seems random at first, there is a ‘pity’ system that ensures that you get 5-star drops consistently after a certain number of pulls. Over time, the drop rate on banners keep going up until you get a 5-star weapon or light cone and then the drop rates reset.

How many pulls does it take to get a 5 Star in Honkai Star Rail

The “hard pity” of Honkai Star Rail is 90, which means that you are guaranteed to get a character or weapon in 90 pulls no matter what if you have not received one by then. Once you receive a 5 star, the system resets and you are guaranteed to get the next 5 star within the next 90 pulls.

Event Banners

On the rotating banners, the featured character is not the only drop you can expect when you roll a 5-star. You can get one of the non-featured 5 Star characters as well, which include: 

  • Himeko

  • Welt

  • Bronya

  • Gepard

  • Clara

  • Yanqing

  • Bailu

If you happen to roll one of these characters it is called losing a “50-50” because you have a 50% chance to get the featured character and a 50% chance to get one of the above-mentioned Standard 5 Star characters. If you get unlucky and don’t get the on-banner drop, your next 5-star is guaranteed to be whoever is featured on the banner.

Light Cone Banner

The light cone banner works differently from Genshin Impact’s weapon banner. You have a 75% chance to get the featured light cone in Honkai Star Rail and if you get unlucky, the next drop will be an on-banner light cone. Just like the rotating banner, the pity count carries over.

Standard Banner

Finally, we have the Standard banner which features the previously mentioned Standard characters and their best-in-slot light cones only. No other 5-star drops are available in this pool. It has the same soft pity and hard pity as the rotating banners but it is permanently available and there are no rate-ups.

If you do 300 summons on the Standard banner, you get to choose a Standard character of your choice for free. This does not count towards your pity and it is considered an exclusive drop.
