AFK Journey Banners Explained: Pity, Rates, Diamonds

Going through all of the AFK Journey banners, listing their differences in drop rate and how many invite letters you need to roll on them.

AFK Journey Banners is half of what makes the game enjoyable. The game showers you with tons of goodies at the start to encourage players to try AFK 2's extremely generous pity system. But like any gacha experience, it's easy to feel overwhelmed at the start.

Epic Recruitment is an AFK Journey banner that prioritizes the Epic heroes. To guarantee one of these ultra-rare units, you'll have to recruit 30 cards on the banner. Use Epic Invite Letters (found while exploring/at the in-game Trolley shop) to roll on the Epic Recruitment banner.

Only having these specialized units makes Stargaze Station have the smallest hero pool. Use Stellar Crystals (found in the Recruitment Store/Guild Store) to roll on the Stargaze Station.

AFK Journey's rare gacha elements let you earn powerful and unique heroes through a random number generator (or “RNG”) system. This mechanic increases your chance to win incredibly strong characters the more you roll.

AFK Journey Banners: Pity Explained

AFK Journey banners let you roll the dice for rare and powerful heroes, but sometimes players get really unlucky. So to keep you from a losing streak, AFK 2 implements a very forgiving “pity” system.

Pity allows players to get a guaranteed roll on a character once they've already rolled a set amount of times. This is a win-win, since players that work hard eventually get their prize, and the devs get to keep their playerbase. And as with most gacha RPGs, AFK Journey's pity “resets” every time you get the featured S-tier character on the banner.
