miHoYo introduces Epitomized Path, new banner mechanic to get 5-star weapons in Genshin Impact

Starting in v2.0, Genshin Impact players will be able to get their favourite weapon easier than ever.
If you have played Genshin Impact for any length of time, you will know its gacha system (also known as Event Wish) can be quite tricky to find exclusive weapons, with most of the time depending on the so-called Pity System, which means you have to waste tonnes of Primogems to try to get your preferred one.

Now, after feedback from the game’s community, miHoYo has announced through their update 2.0 presentation, a revamping of their gacha mechanics by introducing the Epitomized Path, a special wish mechanism added exclusively into the Epitome Invocation banner.

Epitomized Path: How does it work?

Thanks to the Epitomized Path, all Travelers will be able to chart a course towards a specific 5-star promotional weapon they hope to obtain.

Once players have charted a course towards a chosen weapon, they will obtain one Fate Point upon receiving a 5-star weapon that is not the one that you chose. You can obtain a maximum of two Fate Points.

Once you've reached the maximum amount of Fate Points, the next 5-star weapon you choose will be the one you have chosen through Epitomized Path, and the accumulated Fate Points will be cleared.

If you do not use Epitomized Path to obtain a weapon, you will not accumulate Fate Points. Also, the charted course towards a certain weapon can be changed or cancelled at any time. However, after doing so, any current Fate Points will be cleared.

We must point out that at the end of any Epitome Invocation banner (which normally lasts for three weeks), any current Fate Points will be cleared.

After the Version 2.0 update, core information about wishes can be obtained by clicking on the Details button in the lower-left corner of the wish screen.

The update 2.0 of Genshin Impact will be available on 21st July 2021.
