Which Character To Pull? - Recommended 5-Star

NameProsCons
DehyaDehya- Has both on-field and off-field abilities
- Scales off both HP & ATK making her easy to build
- Will be added in the Standard Banner in 3.6 Update
CynoCyno- Strong Electro Hypercarry
- Great with different Electro-reactions, but shines that most with Aggravate
- Elemental Mastery scaling making for even stronger reactions
- Requires high ER for constant use of Burst
- Since he's a Hypercarry, he must be on the field most of the time
AyakaAyaka- Almost 100% Cryo application
- High damage multipliers across all attacks
- Playstyle will take a lot to get used to
ShenheShenhe- Kit makes her a great Cryo Support
- Easy to build since she scales directly off her ATK
- Can only fit in Cryo-focused team comps

Character Meta Ranking Overview

Ayaka Is The Best Meta-Wise

When taking the Meta into account, the character most recommended to get for this update would be Ayaka. She's one of the strongest characters in the current Meta and her Cryo application and damage are just amazing.

Cyno Is A Good Second Priority

Cyno may not be as strong as Ayaka meta-wise, but he can hold his own with his damage. if you plan on building an Aggravate team comp, having Cyno would definitely make the team stronger!

Shenhe & Dehya Can Be Skipped

Since Dehya will be added to the Standard Banner, it's better to skip her Banner and get her from either the Standard Banner itself or from losing your 50/50 in future banners. Shenhe on the other hand suffers from having strict team comps so if you have no Cryo main DPS, pulling for Shenhe is not really a priority.

Pull Base On Your Preference

At the very bottom of this, who you want to pull should be based on your own preference. Whoever you want to get is entirely up to you regardless of Meta or other factors.

Can Play Character Demo First

If you're not sure if you like the character or their gameplay yet, you can play their Character Demos first whenever their Banners are available. Use this opportunity to get a feel for the character!

Total Primogems/Pulls You Can Earn In 3.4 Update

This is an estimation and could show numbers lower or higher than the actual Primogems that can be earned. For example, Primogems per event are on average, not the exact numbers. This also assumes that banner lengths will be 22 days each.

Banner Strategy & Scenarios - 3.4 Update

Things To Consider When Pulling

1Pulls & Primogems saved / you can earn

3Your 50/50 state

Plan Your Banners Depending On Your Pulls

If you are a purely free-to-play character, it's expected that you won't have enough pulls to get a guaranteed character for every character banner. Figure out which banners you want to pull from from the start so you can play ahead.

Do Not Build Pity On Banners You Don't Want A 5-Star From

It's best to saved your pulls for banners wherein you really want a character. Do not build Pity on banners you don't want, skip them instead. This will remove the chance that you get a 5-star character from them and resetting your Pity.

Skip Mika If You Don't Want Ayaka Or Shenhe

Mika is more likely to show up in future banners since he's a 4-star so you can skip Ayaka & Shenhe's Banner. It's better to save your Primogems than risk losing your Pity by pulling on the banner.

Banner Scenarios & How To Plan Out Your Pulls

Tap To Jump To Scenario
(✓ = Will pull, ✖ will not pull)
▼ Scenario 1Any Phase 1 BannerAny Phase 2 Banner
▼ Scenario 2Any Phase 1 BannerAny Phase 2 Banner
▼ Scenario 3Any Phase 1 BannerAny Phase 2 Banner

The number of pulls listed below are based on the current banner pity system wherein at 90 pulls, you are guaranteed to get a 5-star character. It is possible to require less pulls if you win your 50/50 or you get an early pity.

Scenario 1 - Will Pull On A Phase 1 Banner

DescriptionGuaranteed Pulls
Guaranteed, 1 5-Star Character90 Pulls
50/50, 1 5-Star Character180 Pulls
Guaranteed, 2 5-Star Character270 Pulls
50/50, 2 5-Star Character360 Pulls

If you plan on pulling for just a banner in the First Phase, it's recommended that you just choose one character between the two. However, if you want two of the banner 5-Stars, keep trying since you don't have to save for another banner in the later part of the update anyways.

Scenario 2 - Will Pull On A Phase 2 Banner

DescriptionGuaranteed Pulls
Guaranteed, 1 5-Star Character90 Pulls
50/50, 1 5-Star Character180 Pulls
Guaranteed, 2 5-Star Character270 Pulls
50/50, 2 5-Star Character360 Pulls

Before spending all of your Primogems during this phase, we recommend just gunning for one banner character first. With the 3.5 Update right after this banner, it's best to know which are the next banners first before spending all of your Primogems before it.

Scenario 3 - Will Pull Both Phase 1 & Phase 2 Banners

DescriptionGuaranteed Pulls
Guaranteed, 1 5-Star Character90 Pulls
50/50, 1 5-Star Character180 Pulls
Guaranteed, 2 5-Star Character270 Pulls

50/50, 3 5-Star Character540 Pulls
Guaranteed, 4 5-Star Character630 Pulls
50/50, 4 5-Star Character720 Pulls

If you plan on pulling from both banners, it's highly recommended that you just choose one 5-star from each banner phase. It's close to impossible to get all 4 5-star characters without using real money to get more Primogems.
