How to Get Free 5-Star Resonators in Wuthering Waves

Those aren’t the only free units that you can get in Wuthering Waves, however. Every player can get two free 5-star Resonators by pulling on the Novice Convene – Utterance of Marvels banner.

This banner is only for new players, offering them 50 pulls at a discounted rate. If you pull on this banner, you’re guaranteed to get a 5-star character within those 50 pulls. Also, you can select another 5-star Resonator from a list after you complete all 50 pulls the banner has to offer.

There are five free 5-star Resonators available via the Novice Convene banner.


The Novice Convene banner is the perfect place to use the free pulls granted to new Wuthering Waves players since it provides the best bang for your buck. If you want to add limited characters like Yinlin to your team, however, you’re going to need to start saving.
