What to Buy with Genesis Crystals

Gift Shop

You can use Genesis Crystals to buy some bundles in the Gift Shop. There are currently 2 bundles available in the Gift Shop for players who want to jumpstart their adventure with some level up materials for characters and weapons.

If you're just starting off however, chances are you will have a surplus of these items and a lot of ways to get them through level up rewards and quests available.

Overall, these bundles are better off for players who have finished the main quests already and are working on maxing their characters but lack Original Resin to farm level up materials.

Starter Supply Bundle


Cost 300 Genesis Crystals
Best for Players who finished most of the quests and need extra materials to level up characters and weapons.
Bundle contains
x80 x40

Wayfarer's Supply Bundle


Cost 980 Genesis Crystals
Best for Players who finished all currently available quests and finding it hard to farm level up materials due to lack of Original Resin.
Bundle contains
x50 x25
x1 x50,000

Primogem Exchange


Genesis Crystals can be exchanged to Primogems in a 1:1 basis. These can then be used to purchase Intertwined Fate or Acquaint Fate to be used for Wishes.

Use Genesis Crystals for Missing Primogems

So far the best way to use Genesis Crystals is to use it when you're lacking some Primogems to buy Intertwined Fate or Acquaint Fate.

This will let you roll for gacha and even get you Stardust or Starglitter which you can use to buy more wishes, as well as some other ascension materials.
