Use for Wishing on Banners

Genshin - How to Use Primogems for Wishing

Primogems should mainly be used to wish on Gacha Banners. While you can technically pull on a Wish Banner with Primogems, you cannot actually pull on a banner with Primogems alone. Primogems are used to buy an Acquaint or Intertwined Fate to be used on the selected wish.

Genshin Impact - Primogem Image Primogem x160

Prioritize Intertwined Fate

It is recommended to prioritize getting Intertwined Fates with Primogems because these are used for Event Banners. Event banners are almost always better to pull on than the Standard Banners!

Well, I came here for enlightenment and found answers I already had. Farm implies you can earn them through persistent game play. However, chest that give Primogems seem finite. So short of spending money you only have the daily commissions it seems. Hurts.

      Definitely worth pulling just like Venti. Gacha game like Genshin, the meta bounces here to another. And the meta usually categorized as DPS creeping. So in order for people to keep pulling new character, miHoYo need to come up with slightly inflated DPS characters. But when it comes to support, it is less likely that new character will steal another character's unique support skills. Utility support like Venti and Zhongli will definitely live longer than DPS. Go pull Zhongli.
