Character Meta Ranking Overview

Pyro Main DPS: Arlecchino Vs Lyney

CharacterDescription
ArlecchinoArlechhino- Currently, it's hard to know Arlecchino's strengths and weaknesses since her full kit is not revealed yet
- Will be more flexible when it comes to her teams
LyneyLyney- Has a high damage potential with the right team and equipment
- Can easily take down lone targets

Arlecchino Looks To Be A Strong Main DPS

Arlecchino Looks To Be A Strong Main DPS

Based on the 4.6 Trailer, Arlecchino is set to be a Pyro on-field DPS. However, without knowing her damage numbers and kit cooldown, it's hard to know how strong she would be exactly.

Lyney Is Great Against Single Targets

Lyney Is Great Against Single Targets

Lyney is a strong Pyro DPS that can easily attain the same damage as Ganyu. However, he's limited when it comes to his teams and he unfortunalety does not do well against multiple targets.

Wanderer For A Strong Anemo DPS

Wanderer For A Strong Anemo DPS

Wanderer is among the best Anemo on-field DPS in the current lineup. If you have no other Anemo DPS, he's a good option for it. Besides combat, he's also great for exploration by using his Skill.

Baizhu For Shiels & Heal

Baizhu For Shiels & Heal

Baizhu is among the strongest healers in the current meta. Without needing to be on the field a lot, he can easily sustain a team's health through his strong Elemental Skill & Burst. His shields also replenish quite quickly!

Pull Base On Your Preference

The bottom line is to choose who you want to pull according to your own preference. Whoever you want to get is entirely up to you regardless of Meta or other factors.

Can Play Character Demo First

Character Demo

You can try the character's demo first so you can experience the character's gameplay firsthand. This can help you decide if the character can be included in your current available teams or not. Use this opportunity to get a feel for the character!

Banner Strategy & Scenarios - 4.6 Update

Things To Consider When Pulling

1Number of pulls & Primogems you can save/earn
2Which banner/s you will pull
3Your 5-star character status (50/50 or guaranteed)

Plan Your Banners Depending On Your Pulls

If you are a purely free-to-play player, it is expected that you will not have enough pulls to get a guaranteed character for every character banner. Figure out which banners you want to pull from the start so you can plan ahead.

Do Not Build Pity On Banner With 5-Star Character You Do Not Want

Pity Count

It is best to save your pulls for banners wherein you really want a character. Do not build the pity count on banners you do not prefer and skip them instead. This could reset the pity count once you get a 5-star character from them.

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 is 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 fewer 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 a banner in the First Phase, it is recommended that you choose only one character between the two. However, if you want two of the banner 5-Stars, keep trying since you do not 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 3.7 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 in both banners, it is highly recommended that you just choose one 5-star from each banner phase. It is close to impossible to get all four 5-star characters without spending real money to get more Primogems.
