How to Unlock Venti Character in Genshin Impact

As an avid Genshin Impact player with over 2 years of experience, I’m often asked how to obtain one of the game’s most popular characters – the Anemo Archon, Venti. In this comprehensive guide, I’ll walk you through everything you need to know about getting Venti on your team.

Overview of Venti

Venti is a 5-star Anemo bow character introduced in Genshin Impact’s launch version. As the current mortal vessel of Barbatos, the Anemo Archon, Venti is an integral part of the game’s lore and story.

In terms of combat abilities, Venti excels at crowd control and enabling elemental reactions like Swirl. His Elemental Skill pulls enemies together in one spot while his Burst creates a black hole that constantly sucks in opponents. This makes him an invaluable support character for amplifying team damage.

Outside of combat, Venti’s unique ability to generate wind currents while gliding can help players explore hard-to-reach areas.

How to Get Venti

As a 5-star character, Venti can only be obtained from limited-time event wish banners where he is rated up. This means you can’t get him from the standard wish banner.

Here are the steps to unlock Venti on your account:

Step 1: Save Enough Wishes

  • You will need 180 wishes to guarantee getting Venti.
  • Each wish requires 160 Primogems so you need 28,800 Primogems total.

Step 2: Wait for a Venti Rate-up Banner

  • Keep an eye out for announcements of an upcoming Venti banner.
  • This is the only time he will be available to wish for.

Step 3: Convert Primogems into Intertwined Fates

  • Use your Primogems to purchase Intertwined Fates from the in-game shop.
  • You need 180 Intertwined Fates to make 180 wishes.

Step 4: Wish on Venti’s Rate-up Banner

  • Make wishes on his event banner during the rate-up period.
  • The 180th wish will guarantee unlocking him.

Some tips:

  • Wish strategically around soft pity at 75 wishes.
  • Build pity by wishing 10x rather than 1x.
  • Prioritize Venti’s banner over standard banner.

While waiting for a rerun, keep collecting Primogems through quests, events, daily commissions, etc. With some patience and saving, you’ll bring home this fan-favorite bard!

Venti Constellations

Unlocking extra constellation levels for Venti will further increase his capabilities:

C1: Additional AoE damage and crowd control.

C2: Extends duration of Elemental Burst.

C4: Boosts Anemo DMG.

C6: Provides resistance shred for swirled elements.

Getting multiple copies of Venti requires incredible luck or money. For most players, C0 Venti is already a top-tier support.

Venti Talents

Here are the talents you should level up for Venti:

Elemental Skill: Increases damage and energy regeneration.

Elemental Burst: Boosts damage, duration and cooldown reduction.

Passive 1: Generates energy for the team after Burst.

Prioritize leveling his Skill and Burst to maximize his support capabilities.

Venti’s Best Weapons

These bows are great options for Venti:

  • Elegy for the End (5-star) – Best overall for support.
  • The Stringless (4-star) – F2P choice that boosts Skill/Burst DMG.
  • Windblume Ode (Event) – Solid F2P option if available.
  • Skyward Harp (5-star) – For DPS build.

For artifacts, the Viridescent Venerer set is his best-in-slot. Focus on Energy Recharge and Elemental Mastery for maximum buffs. An Anemo DMG goblet is also good if using him as a DPS.

Closing Thoughts

Venti continues to be a top-rated character years after his initial release. His ability to CC groups of enemies is invaluable in the Spiral Abyss and domain farming. He fits comfortably into many team comps and playstyles.

Getting Venti requires some luck and plenty of patience. But the payoff is massive – you’ll have the support of the Anemo Archon himself!

With his carefree personality and immense power, Venti will surely bring lots of joy (and utility) to your travels in Teyvat.
