If there’s one thing that everyone has loved since pretty much the dawn of modern fiction, it’s a dashing and handsome detective. Everyone loves a guy who can take apart a criminal enterprise with nothing but his mind and his dukes and look good doing it. As a detective of the Tenryou Commission, Genshin Impact’s Shikanoin Heizou is all that and then some. Here’s how to unlock Shikanoin Heizou in Genshin Impact.

At the time of writing, there is no special in-game means of obtaining Shikanoin Heizou in Genshin Impact. You know what that means: it’s time to spin the ol’ gacha.

Shikanoin Heizou can be rolled on two of the currently-active character banners: Klee’s banner, Sparkling Steps, and Kazuha’s banner, Leaves in the Wind. Both of these banners are rerunning from July 13th to August 2nd.

Shikanoin Heizou is a 4-star character and one of the featured 4-stars on both banners. On either banner, he’s featured alongside two more 4-stars, Thoma and Ningguang. The way rolling 4-stars works is that, if you successfully roll a 4-star character, you’ll have a 50% chance of getting one of those three 4-star characters. If it’s not one of those characters that time, then the next time you successfully roll a 4-star character, it will definitely be one of them. Unfortunately, there is no way to guarantee that you receive Shikanoin Heizou even if you do roll a 4-star, so you’ll just have to get lucky.

If you don’t roll Shikanoin Heizou while these banners are active, you’ll still be able to roll him on other banners, albeit at a lower occurrence rate. You’ll have an equal chance of getting Shikanoin Heizou as you will with every other 4-star character in the game, featured characters notwithstanding. Hope you’ve got some Primogems stocked up!
