Honkai Star Rail is one of the most popular gacha games out there currently, with a growing roster of characters that you can recruit for your teams. One standout feature of Honkai Star Rail (and its sister gacha game, Genshin Impact) is its pity system, which allows you to guarantee a 5-star character after a certain number of pulls. With careful planning, you can ensure you earn the 5-star character of your dreams. Fortunately, HoYoverse has provided a method that allows you to calculate what your current pity is. Here’s how to check your pity in Honkai Star Rail.
How does pity work in Honkai Star Rail
First, you should understand how Honkai Star Rail’s pity system works. In each unique banner, you are guaranteed to pull a 5-star character every 90 pulls you make. Note that pity counts are separate for the Regular Banner, Character Event Warp banner, and Light Cone Event Warp banners. Pity counts also carry over between different Character Event Warp banners (for example, if you pull 75 times on Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae’s banner, you will only need to pull 15 more times to guarantee a 5-star on a different Event Warp banner, such as Fu Xuan.)
When pulling on Event Warp banners, you should also be aware of the game’s “50/50 system.” Each Event Warp banner features a special 5-star character you can pull for, such as Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae. When first pulling for a particular 5-star, you have a 50% chance to obtain the desired 5-star, and a 50% chance to obtain a 5-star from a pool of standardized 5-star characters (Bronya, Yanqing, Bailu, Himeko, Welt, Clara, and Gepard.) If you pull a standard 5-star character, your next 5-star will always be a featured character.
Each banner also has “soft-pity” in place which increases the likelihood that you’ll pull a 5-star character before 90 pulls. Realistically, it’s actually quite rare to pull 90 times on a banner. Soft pity begins at around 75 pulls, so your chance of pulling a 5-star character after 75 pulls is quite high.
How to check pity in Honkai Star Rail
Now that you understand how the pity system works, you’ll need to figure out how to calculate your pulls. First, head to your desired Warp banner. Click the “View Details” button on the bottom-left of the banner.
In the following screen, press “Records” on the top-right. You’ll see a history of all your pulls for the chosen banner. (In the following example, you’ll see four pulls after receiving Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae, which means you’ll need 86 pulls at most to receive your next 5-star.)
That’s all you’ll need to calculate your pity in Honkai Star Rail. Simply count up all of the pulls you made since obtaining your last 5-star, and subtract it by 90.
