What is Soft Pity in Genshin Impact?


how pity system works in genshin impact

Soft Pity is the number of pulls needed for a 5-star banner after which you have a better chance of getting the character or a weapon. In this game you get new characters through Banners, the game’s Gacha mechanic. These banners are nothing but the time period for you to unlock the character before they change. Thus it comes down to luck when you want new characters.

70 pulls is where Soft Pity for both Character and Weapon banners begin. But the actual soft Pity is 77. This means that after you make 70 pulls or attempts to get the character, the chances of you getting it will increase with each pull.


Remember soft pity is just the improved chances of you getting the weapon or character. There is still a possibility that you may not get it even after 80 pulls or more. And that is where the hard Pity comes in.

What is Hard Pity?

Hard Pity is the number of pulls for a banner that guarantee you the reward. Hard Pity for banners in Genshin is 90. That means you are guaranteed to get the reward on your 90th attempt.


Do remember, the Pity system works exactly as explained above and has been noticed by the community but is not official.
