What are the essential numbers everyone needs to know about the Wuthering Waves pity system?

Wuthering Waves is a free-to-play action RPG game with over 15 unique characters to play. While some characters, known as Resonators, can be obtained simply by playing the game, many others are locked behind time-limited banners.

Players can draw in these Convenes by using Tides. One tide costs 160 Asite.

To secure a guaranteed character in the Character Event Convene, players must draw a minimum of 80 pulls.

However, even after this investment, there’s only a 50% chance of obtaining the desired character or a standard 5-star character from the banner.

Moreover, if players happen to acquire a non-banner character during these pulls, they receive a guaranteed Convene Resonator the next time they draw a 5-star during the ongoing Convenes period.

The dynamics differ for Weapon Convenes, where players secure the exclusive weapon without any 50/50 chance involved.

Does Wuthering Waves have controller support?

For newcomers, a Novice Convene is offering a guaranteed Resonator within 50 draws.

It’s important to note that this banner only allows for 10x pulls with a 20% discount, meaning players need only eight Lustrous Tides to engage with this Convene.
