There’s really no question as to why so many people are looking for how to get Qiqi in Genshin Impact. Qiqi is a 5 star character, which represents how strong she is, as well as how rare she is to obtain. Qiqi wields a sword and is equipped with some very strong abilities and attacks. Unfortunately, due to her insane power, getting Qiqi in Genshin Impact isn’t easy. This guide will help point you in the right direction on how to unlock Qiqi in Genshin Impact, so that you can utilize her rapid sword attacks and breeze through content.
How to get Qiqi
There is only one way to obtain Qiqi, and that’s by using the wish system. The Gacha Wish Banner system is how you obtain the majority of characters in Genshin Impact, apart from a few specific personalities that you can unlock for free. The bad point of this though, as that due to RNG, you could keep wishing for Qiqi and never actually get her.
As we have said previously, Qiqi is a 5 star character, which not only represents her strength, but also her rarity within Genshin Impact. On forums and social media posts, a lot of theorycrafters suggest that there is less than a 1% chance of getting any 5 star character or item through the wish system. Now, if you look at all of the items and characters available that are 5 star, you’ll come to realise that this less than 1% chance is magnified tremendously if you are looking for something specific.
The only thing you can do is to collect as many wishes as possible in Genshin Impact, for the even the slightest chance of unlocking this small swordsmith. There are a few ways of doing this, which will will elaborate on in another post.
There is light at the end of this dark tunnel though. The game creators often run wish banner boosts for specific characters and items, which increase your chances of getting the specific drop while the boost is active. These will likely rotate every so often, so keep your eyes peeled for a Qiqi-specific one.
If such a buff does reach the game, then it’s imperative that you collect as many wishes as feasibly possible during that time frame. Of course, we would advise that you look out for a few different top-tier characters to aim for, so that you don’t get disheartened trying for one specific drop. There are lots of characters and items in the game, and what is good one month, may not be cutting edge the next.
So there it is, that’s essentially the only way to get Qiqi in Genshin Impact. I understand it’s probably not the answer you were hoping for, but games like this need these types of grinds to survive. Also, like we said before, there are so many different characters and party compositions available to you, that you should definitely keep your eyes out for a few different ones. Getting familiar and knowledgable with all of the different 5 star characters will make forming top-tier parties that much easier in the long run.
However, we understand a lot of you (including myself) go for characters based on their aesthetics, not neccessarily for their god-like stats. If this is the case for you, then you just have to keep grinding away. You’ll get her… eventually.
Look out for more Genshin Impact character unlock guides in the near future, and we wish you the best of luck with your wishes.
