This is a guide about Primogems, a currency used in Genshin Impact. To learn about Primogems, their uses, and the best farming method of Primogems, read on.

These information are taken from the beta phase of the game and as such, some info may have changed.

How to Get Primogems

Get From Login Bonuses

Occasionally, Mihoyo will feature an event called Seize the Day. It's basically a login reward event and the rewards range from a lot of Mora to even Primogems! This event mostly happens when there's new content so make sure to stay updated for all the latest info to maximize your Primogem earnings!

Current Event Quests

Purchase with Stardust and Starglitter

These items are obtained from wishes and can be used to avail other reward through Paimon's bargain shop. But we highly recommend using them to purchase Primogems to be able to use more Wishes.

Obtain Through Mail

Primogems can be obtained through login bonus. An extremely fast way to get Primogems for players who played the game at launch. When issues happen in the game, Mihoyo also issues a mail that contains primogems. Make sure not to neglect those mails!

Clear Missions


Primogems can be obtained by clearing missions. These missions include daily missions so make sure not to neglect doing them!

World quests are limited but to ensure a smooth flow of Primgems, make sure to atleast complete your commissions daily!

List of World Quests

Open Treasure Chests and Activate Teleport Waypoints

Activating Waypoints and Treasure Chests gives you an option for a faster travel as well as loots. In addition to that, you can also obtain Primogems! Make sure to prioritize these two tasks due to their various benefits!

Open The Game Tips

Upon encountering unknown features from the game, the game will explain it if you interact with the square UI on the lower center of the screen. Doing so will also reward you with Primogems.

Best Way to Use Primogems

Exchange For Items Usable for Wishes

Item Primogem Cost
Intertwined Fate 160 Primogems
Acquaint Fate 160 Primogems

Each fate item that can be used for gachas are hard to acquire. They can be bought using primogems for 160 a piece. It is also recommended to purchase on the gacha screen instead of the shop to avoid buying the wrong type of item.
Which Fate Item Should You Trade Primogems For?

Original Resin Can Be Refilled

Primogem Cost Amount Restored
1st try 50 60
2nd try 100 60
3rd try 100 60
4th try 150 60
5th try 200 60
6th try 200 60

It is possible to restore your Original Resin by spending Primogems. The maximum number of times this can be done is six times per day. The cost also increases for every restoration count so think before doing this!

We do not encourage doing this. Primogems is a currency that may seem abundant at the early stages of the game but will get scarce later on. Try to hold off on using Primogems carelessly.

Exceeding Original Resin Limit is Possible
