How to Get Wishes in Genshin Impact

First things first, you will only be able to make a wish when you progress in the game and get to the library. That’s when the wish section will be unlocked in the game. Now, once unlocked there is only one way to get wishes in Genshin Impact and that is by purchasing them through fates.

There will always be the standard Acquaint Fates to get and then there will be one or two other types of fates according to the currently running event in the game. For instance, at the time of writing this guide, there are Intertwined Fates along with acquainted fates. With these Fates available, you can get wishes in Genshin Impact from the Gacha Wish Banners.

Although there is only one way to get wishes, which is through fates, there are a couple of ways to get fates. Firstly, you can get fates by increasing adventure levels. Secondly, you can get fates by converting primogems. All you need to do is farm primogems in Genshin Impact and convert 160 primogems to one fate. You can read our primogems farming guide to learn different free and paid ways to get more primogems. To cut it short, you can get primogems by completing missions & challenges, progressing in the main story, opening chests, and purchasing them from the store.

Once you have enough fates, you can get more wishes in Genshin Impact. All you have to do is open the in-game menu and navigate to the Wish menu. Here you can spend fates to get more wishes and unlock new characters.

That’s how you get more wishes in Genshin Impact. You can also unlock new characters by progressing quickly in the game, and for that, you need to learn how to mine and how to fast travel in Genshin Impact. Both these will help you save a lot of time and progress quickly.
