Tower of Fantasy drop rates and pity system: Rewards and drop rates for all main bosses and banners

Learn the drop rates and potential rewards for every main boss and banner in Tower of Fantasy

Want to learn more about Tower of Fantasy drop rates and its pity system? In Tower of Fantasy, there are a few ways to earn new SSR and SR weapons and Matrices, which are key to getting stronger. You can get them by purchasing a special order (banners, for those familiar with Genshin Impact), some of which have a pity system that guarantees SSR drops after a set amount of purchases. However, you can also farm main bosses, which each offer rewards upon defeat. If you've seen our Tower of Fantasy character tier list and want to get the best Simulacra and Matrices, then you'll need to know the drop rates for the various banners and main bosses so that you can farm efficiently.

In this guide, we'll break down the Tower of Fantasy drop rates and potential rewards for each main boss, along with explaining the drop rates and pity system for each Tower of Fantasy Special Order.

Tower of Fantasy main boss drop rates

There are six main bosses in Tower of Fantasy. They deal huge damage with every hit, but hunting down a range of cooking recipes as you explore Aida will allow you to come prepared. Just don't forget to equip your new food items on the hotbar, so that you don't need to search through your backpack in the heat of battle.

After defeating a boss, you will gain access to a special chest that you can choose to either force open without using an item, or open using a Tier 3 chip gained from weekly rewards. You will only have a chance at the best loot by using the Tier 3 chip, and there's no way to guarantee rewards. If you want guaranteed rewards, head to the banners section further down the page to learn more about the various pity systems that promise either SR or SSR rewards.

Below, we'll break down the location, rewards, and drop rates for each main boss in Tower of Fantasy.

That covers all of the Tower of Fantasy drop rates for main bosses, but you can also earn SSR Matrices and weapons by purchasing Special Orders (Tower of Fantasy's version of Genshin Impact's banners, for those more familiar with Genshin's lingo). We'll explain the drop rates for each banner in the section below.

Tower of Fantasy banner drop rates and pity system

There are currently four banners in Tower of Fantasy. Two standard "Choice" banners (one covering weapons, with two separate versions known as 'caches' for different currencies, and the other covering Matrices) and two event banners (again, one for weapons and the other for Matrices). Each of these banners have their own drop rates, and a few have a pity system that guarantees SR or SSR pulls after a certain amount of orders.

Below, we'll break down the Tower of Fantasy drop rates and pity system for each banner.

Choice Weapons (Gold Nucleus Cache)

Below, you'll find a full list of potential drops from the Choice Weapons Gold Nucleus Cache, their drop rates, and info on the pity system:

  • Random SSR weapon - base probability is 0.75%, guaranteed drop every 80 orders.
  • Random SR weapon - base probability is 1%, guaranteed SR or higher drop every 10 orders.
  • Random R weapon - base probability is 91.40%.
  • Weapon battery 3 - base probability is 6.85%.

Choice Weapons (Black Nucleus Cache)

Below, you'll find a full list of potential drops from the Choice Weapons Black Nucleus Cache and their drop rates:

  • Weapon battery 1 - 40% drop rate.

That covers everything you need to know about the drop rates for main bosses and banners in Tower of Fantasy, as well as the pity system. Unlocking new Simulacra isn't the only way to get stronger, though. You can also unlock powerful Relics, such as the Colossus Arms, and we've got a full Tower of Fantasy Relic tier list to show you the best and worst of the bunch. You'll also need to learn about Combat Strength and raise your CS if you want to beat the main bosses listed in this guide.
