Wuthering Waves 1.0 banners: Jiyan and Yinlin debut

Check out all characters on the Wuthering Waves 1.0 banners
Kuro Games

Wuthering Waves, the long-awaited open-world RPG from Kuro Games, has finally arrived and players are diving into its fantasy world to experience the thrilling combat and narrative. Being a free-to-play gacha game, Wuthering Waves allows players to spend tickets on banners in order to pull new characters and weapons to use in the game.

Like games such as Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail, Wuthering Waves offers a standard banner that’s always going to be available as well as a limited banner with rotating characters – and both use their own type of ticket, which can be purchased in-game by investing the premium currency called Astrites.

The standard banner tickets in Wuthering Waves are called Lustrous Tides, while the tickets for the limited banner are called Radiant Tides.

When you first start playing Wuthering Waves, you’ll find a special banner waiting for you, the Novice Convene Deal. It will allow you to make up to 50 pulls at a 20% discount (in effect saving you ten tickets), guaranteeing you a character of 5-Star rarity within those pulls – a nice deal to get you started. Additionally, once the Novice Convene Deal has closed, the Beginner’s Choice Convene banner unlocks, which will provide you with a 5-Star character of your choice. This means you’ll be able to obtain two 5-Star characters pretty early on in the game.

Find out everything you need to know about the Wuthering Waves 1.0 banners below.

Wuthering Waves 1.0 banners: Phase 1

The limited banner will only be available for a set duration during Wuthering Waves 1.0, so you need to pull the character you want inside of that time limit. If a character on the limited banner is not to your liking, it’s always best to save your tickets – new Resonators will arrive regularly. 

In version 1.0, the limited banner will contain the following characters from May 22 to June 13, 2024:

  • Jiyan (Aero, Broadblade, 5-Star), Danjin (Havoc, Sword, 4-Star), Chixia (Fusion, Pistol, 4-Star), and Mortefi (Fusion, Pistol, 4-Star)
  • Verdant Summit (Broadblade, 5-Star), Augment (Rectifier, 4-Star), Hollow Mirage (Gauntlets, 4-Star), and Dauntless Evernight (Broadblade, 4-Star)

Taoqi works at the Ministry of Development, though her laid-back attitude isn’t exactly marking her out to be a bureaucrat. She’s a dependable shielder and healer.
