Here is the full banner schedule for the inaugural 1.0 version of Wuthering Waves, detailing the limited and standard banner rate-ups, as well as future 1.1 characters. 

Similar to every other gacha title, Kuro Games’ upcoming Wuthering Waves will feature a banner system where new and returning characters will be pooled together.

Here is what the limited banners look like in the very first version of the open-world RPG, as well as details on the upcoming 1.1 banners.

Wuthering Waves version 1.0 limited banner characters

Version 1.0 of Wuthering Waves will feature Jiyan and Yinlin as the limited-banner characters. Here is what the first-ever Character Event banner will look like phase-wise: 

Phase 1 – May 23, 2024

  • 5-star character: Jiyan – Aero | Broadblade
  • 4-star characters:
    • Mortefi – Fusion | Pistols
    • Chixia – Fusion | Pistols
    • Danjin – Havoc | Sword
Jiyan in Wuthering Waves
Jiyan is a DPS in Wuthering Waves.

Because each update follows a six-week schedule, each phase will last for six weeks. This means Jiyan’s banner will end on June 13, 2024, which will also mark the release of phase 2.

  • 5-star character: Yinlin – Electro | Rectifier
