Original Resin is an energy mechanic that regenerates every 8 minutes and can be used to claim rewards from Domains, Ley Lines, or World Bosses in Genshin Impact. Read on to learn more about the Resin System, resin refresh rate and/or recharge time, how to get more Original Resin, and other information in this guide!
List of Contents
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!
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!
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.
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.
|Primogem Cost||Amount Restored|
Fragile Resin is an item used to restore Original Resin without spending Primogems. Each Fragile Resin is worth 60 Original Resin. You can get these from Events, the Battle Pass, and Adventure Rank level ups!
You can also use Transient Resin to restore Original Resin! Transient Resin is available in the Realm Depot for 1200 Realm Currency, and it refreshes every week. Each Transient Resin is worth 60 Original Resin, but will expire 7 days counting from the Monday after you buy it.
You can store up to 200 Original Resin for later use by converting it into Condensed Resin, at a maximum of 5. Once converted, you will be able to save resin for Domains and Ley Lines and use them on another day!
|Resin Activities||Resin Cost|
|Ley Line Outcrops||20 Original Resin
1 Condensed Resin
|Domains of Mastery, Forgery, and Blessing||20 Original Resin
1 Condensed Resin
|Trounce Domains||30 Original Resin (first three uses for the week)
60 Original Resin
|Elite Bosses||40 Original Resin|
|Mystic Enhancement Ore||10 Original Resin|
Ley Line Outcrops gives juicy EXP materials and Mora! If you are running low on these resources, you can try and farm these Ley Line Outcrops!
Domains requires Original Resin to redeem rewards. Domains gives ascension materials and the resin needed for domains are cheaper than World Bosses.
On the later stages of the game, Domains will also be your go to area in farming rare Artifacts for your team. Clear those domains to make the best team!
Elite Bosses need 40 Original Resin to claim various rewards including Character Development Items, and artifacts. Unlike Domains and Ley Line Outcrops, you cannot use Condensed Resin.
Original Resin can also be used from defeating Trounce Domain enemies like Stormterror Dvalin. Claiming rewards from Trounce Domains will give you various Character Development Items including gemstones, and Talent boss materials.
You can also use 10 Resin to craft Mystic Enhancement Ores by talking to the Blacksmith and forging with Magical Crystal Chunks. You can choose to do this if you do not want to overcap but have no time to do domains or bosses. This will also give Companionship EXP to whichever character you use for Forging!
Original Resin is a resource used in doing Domains, Ley Lines, World Bosses, and other activities that use Original Resin. Upon completion, Original Resin will be consumed to avail the rewards.
Every in-game activity that uses Original Resin also rewards your party with Companion EXP. Be sure to check your party members' Friendship Level before using Original Resin!
AR (Adventure Rank) 8 is needed to start using Original Resin. Quickly grind those AR to immediately be able to redeem nice rewards from activities that use Original Resin!
Story can be progressed without using Original Resin. It is not a roadblock to progressing your game as you only need to up your Adventure Rank to progress quests. Regardless, Bosses in the Overworld will be harder as time goes by, so it is still recommended to build your Characters.
