For players new to gacha games, the Pity system is a way to guarantee 5-star rewards, characters, or weapons, after a certain number of unsuccessful attempts have been made in the banner. In most gacha games (including Wuthering Waves), the Soft Pity starts building after a certain number of unsuccessful banner pulls, increasing the drop rate of a five-star reward with each pull until it becomes a guaranteed pull, also called Hard Pity.

In simpler words, the Pity system prevents the banners from becoming completely randomized, and rewards players for their efforts by giving a guaranteed 5-star reward at Hard Pity. Thus, pitying on players’ bad luck and rewarding them.

In Wuthering Waves, the event or limited banner has a Hard Pity of 80. The soft pity starts building from the 50th pull, all the way to 80, which is a guaranteed 5-star drop. This is true for both the Character and Weapon banners. Players must use the Radiant Tides, or convert Astrites into one, to pull from the limited banners.

  • For 5-star character banners, players have a 50% chance to get the featured 5-star Resonator on the pity. If the pulled Resonator is not the featured Resonator, then the next 5-star Resonator pulled is guaranteed to be the featured Resonator.

Other than that, the featured 4-star characters and weapons also have an increased drop. Every ten convene guarantees one 4-star drop for both character and weapon banners.
