What are Primogems and what to spend on them

Wondering how to get Genshin Impact Primogems, arguably the most important currency in the game? This is not surprising. There’s a lot of currency in Genshin to track, and the miHoYo developers don’t necessarily make it easy to understand.

Primogems are the key to getting new characters, new weapons and more in Genshin Impact. But you’ll want to know everything about them before diving in because of the game’s gacha mechanics, which encourage players to spend real money on other fake currencies to buy in-game items rather than grinding them up.

Here’s everything you need to know about Primogems in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact Primogems: What to use on

Primogems is the currency you use in Genshin Impact to buy three things:

1) Fates, which are in turn used to purchase Wishes, which grant random rewards such as characters, weapons, and artifacts. I know it’s already confusing, but look at it like this:

Primogem -> Fate -> Wish -> Reward

2) Real Resin: The currency/resource you will need to get rewards from Ley Line Blossoms, Petrified Trees, or Trounce Blossoms. You can wait eight minutes for one Genuine Resin to refill, or you can spend more and more primogems to fill up to 60 Genuine Resin.

3) Battle Pass tier: Genshin Impact has a free battle pass, plus a battle pass that costs $9.99. It also offers additional rewards for completing certain quests or other requirements. Like many other battle passes in other games, you can spend in-game currency (Primogems in this case) to level up the battle pass if you don’t want to bother playing the game and completing challenges. It’s definitely not the smartest way to use your Primogems, but if you’re only a tier or two away from where you want to be at the end of the season, you might feel like dropping a few Primogems to catch up.

You can use Primogems in the Wish menu, accessed by pressing F3 or pressing ‘Up’ in the radial menu.

How to get Primogems in Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact gives you a decent amount of Primogems just for gaming. Here is a short list of most of the ways you can get Primogems for free:

Invite your friends to play

Complete daily commissions (up to 60 Primogems a day)

Find waypoints, dungeons, and domains (5 Primogems for each find)

Completing Achievements (Usually 5-20 Primogems)



Adventure Rank rewards at certain levels (50-100 Primogems)

The Abyss: 300 Primogems for every floor you complete in the 9th star level

Blessings: If you purchase Blessings (Such as Welkin’s Moon Blessing), you will be awarded a certain amount of Genesis Crystals and 90 Primogems per day for 30 days. You can buy blessings multiple times

Battle Pass at certain level

Events and mail gifts. Don’t forget to check that inbox, because miHoYo likes to throw your bones as often as possible. This is all to encourage you to buy more, but hey, free is free.

If you want to get Primogems faster than what the game has to offer, you have to pay for them.

To do this, you can go to the in-game shop and buy Genesis Crystals, then exchange them for Primogems. The exchange rate is one Genesis Crystal for one Primogem. This is an unnecessary extra step, but that’s how miHoYo decided to do it.
