If you want to unlock more characters, you need to wish for them. This guide on How To Get More Wishes In Genshin Impact explains the different currencies you use when making Wishes, as well as some methods of unlocking more free wishes without having to spend real money.
After a short while playing, when you reach the library in the main story, you unlock the ability to make a Wish. This special option is accessed via the in-game main menu. Simply open the menu and navigate to the Wish section. If the Wish section is not available via the in-game menu, simply follow the story for a short while. It’s only an hour or two, it’s also the same time you unlock the store.
How To Get Free Wishes In Genshin Impact
This is where things can get slightly confusing if you’re not familiar with the game. If you look in the lower right corner of the Wish screen, you can make a single Wish or 10 Wishes. However, the actual currency to make these Wishes are not Wishes. There are three main currency points you need to understand.
In the lower left corner of the Wish screen, the icon marked by a 4 pointed star, those are your Primogems. Primogems are a currency you can earn in the game through various activities. They can be found in chests, rewarded from quests or daily missions, there are a lot of methods to earning more Primogems. The other currency, in the lower left, is either Acquaint Fate or Intertwined Fate.
Both Acquaint Fate and Intertwined Fate are used to make Wishes. For the current events, Acquaint Fates are used on the Beginners Wish and Wanderlust Invocation, and Intertwined Fates are for the other two events. If you want to make more wishes, the process is simple.
- Open the in-game menu and select the Shop
- In the Shop, select Paimon’s Bargains
- Here you can purchase Intertwined and Acquaint Fates
- You spend Primogems to buy either, which is a currency that you can earn for free in-game
- Check the Wish menu to see which Fate is needed for the event you want to Wish for
And that’s how you unlock free wishes for more characters in Genshin Impact.
