Genshin Impact 4.5 update will feature a third banner and a new wish. This will be called Chronicled Wish and will cycle every patch. This banner will only feature 5-star units and there will be fate points of at most one. This means the first 5-star will probably be 50-50 and the second 5-star will be guaranteed. You can choose either 5-star characters or weapons.

Additionally, if you lost 50-50 for the first time, the unit you get will match the type you selected. In other words, if you selected a character, you will not get a weapon, and vice versa. The characters present in this banner need to have had at least three event wish banners until now and should not have been featured in any recent banners.
