How to Use Primogems


Primogems are a special in-game currency used in Genshin Impact. These are used for purchasing Wish Items to roll the Gacha and to refill Original Resin.

Primogems can be farmed in-game or purchased from the shop and Battle Pass.

What to Spend Primogems On

1st Priority: Exchanging Fates

Intertwined Fate and Acquaint Fate are Wishing Items used to roll the gacha.

Item Primogem Cost
Intertwined Fate 160 Primogems
Acquaint Fate 160 Primogems

We recommend spending Primogems on Intertwined Fates, which are used for the Featured Pickup Wish Banners. These have a higher chance of getting 5-star characters, and have a guaranteed 4-star character with 10 pulls.

2nd Priority: Refilling Original Resin


Original Resin is an energy resource item used to claim rewards in Abyssal Domains, Ley Line Blossoms, certain bosses, and Events. This item is capped at 120 and regenerates at a rate of 1 unit per 8 minutes.

Primogem Cost for Refilling Original Resin

Attempts 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

While Primogems can be used to restore Original Resin, we do not recommend using them since you can use Fragile Resin to refil them instead. It would be better to hold off using Primogems for Wishes instead.
