If you want to learn how the Illusion Connect Banners work, then you’re in the right place! Unlike many other gacha games, the summoning rates in IC are not dictated universally by the server. Instead, they are account-related and you can summon (more or less) at your own rate.

Once you start playing, you will gain access to a few banners which will reset for the first time after 7 days, then another 7 days, and so on. In short, everybody will be able to summon the same characters at one point in the game.

There can also be time-limited banners, such as the Investiture of Gods banner (that’s running at the moment), which rewards players with the new character Brooke.

Before you get started, make sure you claim the free Illusion Connect codes to get free Summon Tickets, Diamonds, and more!

Illusion Connect Rate Up Banners

The Rate Up banner is the banner which increases the chance for specific units. It usually resets every 7 days since day 1 you start playing, so you have about a week to try and get 2 specific units with an increased chance.

Chances/Rates:

– SSR Card 1% (all SSR Cards)*
– SSR Card 1% (the two Rate Up SSR Cards)*
– SR Card 15% (all SR Cards)
– R Card 83% (all R Cards)

– You get 1 SSR Card guaranteed in 100 summons.

*Out of the 2% Chance for SSR Cards overall, the chance for the two cards which have Rate Up (i.e. Miyuki & Kiraya, Fenebeth & Ashwaya) take up 50% of that 2%, which means 1%. So, the chance for one of the specific cards is 0.50% out of all the pulls.

Illusion Connect Selected Banners

The Select Banners are quite different from the Rate Up Banners, and they have a much higher chance to give you SSR Cards. This Banner is not available straight-up from day 1, but rather from day 4*. The Select Banners have a much higher chance to give you SSR Cards and focus solely on specific SSR cards.

So, they are a much better option than the Rate Up Banner, but also more expensive (if you want to buy 1 Selected Ticket, you need to pay 400 Diamonds – double the price for Summon Ticket).

Chances/Rates:

– SSR Card 3% (only 4 selected SSR Cards)**
– SR Card 25% (all SR Cards)
– R Card 72% (all R Cards)

– You get 1 SSR Card guaranteed in 50 summons.

* The count starts the day you start playing.

** The chance for the Selected SSR Card is 1.2%, and the other 3 SSR Cards make up 1.8% of the SSR gacha rates. For instance, the first is Selected Maki, with additional Barinas, Selena, and Gagaku – Maki has 1.2% chance (of 100%) to appear when you summon, and the others 1.8% chance (of 100%).

Selected Tactic: Investiture of Gods *limited time*
