As someone who just started playing Arknights, what's the rates like? How low a drop rate do the rarer Operators have?

Also nice

^ 2% is the chance for getting any six star from gacha. after 50 pulls, i think it is, without a six star the chance increases. the chance increases the longer you go without pulling a 6 star. 10 pulls are always best options because you're guaranteed at least 1 5* or higher (and quite often more than one drop). time limited banners will have 1-3 6* operators who have their pool drop rate (i.e the chance of them dropping from drawing a 6*) increased to 50% of their rarity pool.

You're always guaranteed at least one 5 or 6 star operator on your first ten pulls on a banner, you can also check specific opertaror drop rates by clicking 'Details' at the bottom left corner on any banner.

Would you follow me in a dance~

And ye, checking the details is helpful:
2% for six stars
8% for five stars
Interestingly, the pull rates for four stars is higher than three stars

What a strange blend of clothing styles. There's Texas with angel wings, arm bracers, faux toga, pocket watch, and what looks like a broken gladius (Roman foot soldier sword). And then Lappland is in Victorian garb complete with a mini cross at the waist? The watch might be Lappland's actually. But still, while this is pretty I have no idea what setting the author was going for here.

Nevermind, I figured it out. It's based on this Lappland skin. Well that's cool.

Interestingly, the pull rates for four stars is higher than three stars

That's very good for us, as pulling three stars after their potential has been maxed out sucks.

Since I'm bored here goes. I can't figure out how to quote so I'll just copypaste:

For the guy asking, you can click the rates to see them on each banner.

[^ 2% is the chance for getting any six star from gacha. after 50 pulls, i think it is, without a six star the chance increases. the chance increases the longer you go without pulling a 6 star. 10 pulls are always best options because you're guaranteed at least 1 5* or higher (and quite often more than one drop). time limited banners will have 1-3 6* operators who have their pool drop rate (i.e the chance of them dropping from drawing a 6*) increased to 50% of their rarity pool.]

a) You get one 5 star or higher within the first ten pulls of every banner. If you're only going for the guarantee then it's always better to use single pulls because you could before the tenth pull and thus save any pulls you didn't use. You don't get any benefits for using ten pulls either.
b) 6 stars have a 2% pull rate. If you go 50 pulls without one then the 51st will have 4%, 52nd 6% and so on until you get one. 5 stars don't break the pity.
c) Every banner has featured units. The way it works is that if you pull a 5 or 6 star, it will be a featured unit with 50% probability. Mathematically for six stars: 2% base (no pity) = 1% featured unit, 1% off-banner unit. Since usually there are two featured units on a banner it's more like 0.5% + 0.5% + 1%.

I don’t necessarily agree with this; there have been multiple times where I’ve gotten more then one 5/6* operators through my first ten pulls on a banner.

Saying that though, I can see the benefits of this method for those that are strictly free to play or those that want to be smart with how they spend their in game gacha currency

That was completely through luck. The 5* guarantee kicks in if you're on your tenth roll and haven't gotten a 5* or 6* yet. It doesn't increase the rates for ten rolls or anything like that. There is no benefit to using ten rolls except to save time and because sometimes that's the type of headhunting permit they gave. It can be a disadvantage if you're only trying to roll a 5*, get a 5* three rolls in let's say, and the other seven rolls in the 10-roll no longer have any guarantee, so those are seven rolls you could have used on the next banner.

I know, that was my point.

This, I already know as well. I never said it increased the rates; just that it's a possibility to get more then one 5/6* in ten rolls that you could've missed in only pulling for the guaranteed 5*

It can be a disadvantage if you're only trying to roll a 5*, get a 5* three rolls in let's say, and the other seven rolls in the 10-roll no longer have any guarantee, so those are seven rolls you could have used on the next banner.

That's why I said I could see the benefits. I never said it was a bad strategy (the opposite, actually), just that I personally don't totally agree with it.
