Original Resin refreshes at a rate of 1 Resin per 8 minutes. This is a pretty lengthly time but not all activities consume Original Resin, and it also recovers while the game is closed. Make sure to always spend Original Resin in time to maximize its use!

Fully Recharges From 0 to 160 in 20 Hours

At most, an entire day is needed to completely recharge your Original Resin. It is highly recommended to prioritize using your daily Resin to avoid overcapping and wasting a lot of hours. In addition, it is a good way to increase your AR!

Can Be Recharged Using Primogems

Genshin - Original Resin

Original Resin can also be replenished via Primogems. This can be done 6 times each day and the price increases per use (also refreshes the next day). A single purchase will restore 60 Original Resin.

Only Use as Last Resort

We do not recommend using Primogems to regenerate Original Resin in normal circumstances.

Only use Primogems for Resin if you have plenty to spare and in dire need of the Resin! Otherwise, Primogems are better spent on Wish Banners.

Resin Replenish Per Use of Primogems

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