Rerolling is quite common in Genshin Impact because it is the only way to gain control over the gacha system. Here’s how you can reroll in Genshin Impact.

Although Genshin Impact has a brilliant storyline, map, and characters, it is also a gacha game by nature. This genre of games revolves around players spending money to unlock in-game characters, weapons, and items that help in progression. The game is beatable without spending money as well, but money makes things easier.

Genshin Impact is free-to-play, and getting your hands on the best five-star weapons and characters is a lot harder than it seems. You either need to log in daily, complete all quests, and explore all regions, or you can simply buy Primogems.

Here’s how rerolling can help you get the best start in Genshin Impact.

What is rerolling in Genshin Impact?

Rerolling in Genshin Impact refers to making a new account to get your favorite characters and weapons. At the outset of their journey, players get a ton of Fates and Primogems that they can spend on the current Epitome Invocation and Character Event Wish banners.

Tap on the star icon on the top-right of the screen to access the banners and check your resources.

The number of wishes and Primogems you own is displayed on the top-right corner of the screen:

Having said that, it isn’t guaranteed that these wishes will be enough to unlock the items you want. Hence, if someone does not get the characters or weapons they desire from the early pulls (or wishes), rerolling is an effective solution.

How to reroll in Genshin Impact

You need to make a new Genshin Impact account in order to re-roll. Follow these steps to do so:

  1. Visit HoYoverse’s official site and tap on the Log In option in the top-right corner of the screen.
  2. A pop-up menu will appear asking for your login credentials. Click on the Register Now button below the Log In option.
  3. Use a brand-new email ID or social media account (Facebook or Twitter) to create a new account and hit Register.
  4. Launch Genshin Impact, log in with the new account, and unlock the gacha system by reaching Adventure Rank 5.

Can you reroll in Genshin Impact on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5

No, you cannot reroll in Genshin Impact on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 because your in-game account is linked to your PSN account. This means that you can reroll only if you’re willing to create a new PSN account which is a tedious process.

Having said that, mobile (Android & iOS), PC, and tablet players can reroll as many times as they want with new accounts. Reaching Lv. 5 with a new account would take around 20-30 minutes.

Talking about platforms, miHoYo’s hit action RPG is still not available on the Nintendo Switch, and here’s when Genshin Impact will come out on the Nintendo Switch.
