Genshin Impact has a huge number of characters, and it's getting harder to keep track of all of them. These lists should help out - I've compiled all the 5-star and 4-star characters in separate lists so you can see when each character came out, their weapons, and visions when their last banner was and even which region they come from.

So, if you're after a certain character in the game, or you'd like to know how long it's been since their last banner, take a look at the lists below and you should be able to find out right away.
