5 Best Ways to Earn Primogems in Genshin Impact



Genshin Impact has pulled players in for years now with its free-to-play model. The game can be played completely for free without you ever having to spend a dime. In fact, the game's currency, Primogems, are given out for free daily. Every day, you have four daily tasks, and completing them all gives you 60 Primogems. This coupled with the high amount of other tasks you can do to earn the currency for free is pretty surprising. You can even save up to ensure you pull the five-star you want without ever entering your card. Below are the top five ways to amass Primogems in Genshin Impact.


5. Beginner Tasks

When you start the game, there are even more ways to get Primogems. You are able to rank up quickly, allowing you to claim more rewards from Katheryne. You also have the Adventurer's Handbook, which is full of free Primos. There are some starter codes that you can put in as well, one that always works being GENSHINGIFT. When starting out, there is a huge amount of easy content to do around Mondstadt, and you can rack up Wishes pretty quickly.

The area doesn't get all that challenging unto you hit Dragonspine and have to mitigate the Sheer Cold Meter. Take advantage of the prologue area, do all the easy quests, domains, and be sure to take advantage of those easy-to-hit ranks. You can also do the earlier levels of the Spiral Abyss with a decent team. This will award you a pretty sum of Primogems if you can manage to pull off all three stars on each level.


4. Monthly Welkin

If you have played through a good chunk of the game, then Primogems may be more limited. If you are looking for an easier way to gather them but still don't want to spend tons of money, then check out Blessing of the Welkin Moon. This is a monthly purchase that costs just $5 and allows you to occur 90 Primogems a day for 30 days. On top of this, you will also be gifted 300 Genisis Crystals at the time of purchase. This is good for an additional 300 Primogems.

Blessing of the Welkin Moon isn't a monthly subscription and doesn't enable recurring payments. You can choose to buy as many months in a row as you want, and they will stack. If you aren't sure how long you will play every day, then simply pick up a month's worth. This is more reliable than the $10 Battle Pass, which you must level up in order to receive rewards from. You simply make the purchase, and each time you log in after the daily reset, the 90 Primogems get automatically deposited into your account.


3. Clearing Areas

One strategy for gathering a lot of Primogems is to set aside time to clear out areas. Each region is divided into several different areas. When you zoom out on the map, you can see what percentage of the area you have completed. By picking an area and going through it thoroughly, you can ensure you pick up any chests and challenges you may have missed before. This is also a great way to comb for missing Oculi that you haven't been able to find before.

Genshin Impact has a huge map, and it can be hard to handle. By splitting things up, everything in the game becomes a little more manageable. Be sure to make treasure and Oculi trackers to help you in these areas. This is especially important if you have a higher percentage in the area and have already been through it multiple times. You should also pick up any World Quests that you find. Many  World Quests will have Primogems that are given out as a reward when you complete them.

2. Taking Part in Events

There are plenty of things that HoYoverse does to keep players entertained. During each version of the game, there are several events that will run. Some of these events only last a week, while others will run for an expanded amount of time. Generally, the longer the event runs, the more items and Primogems you can get by completing it. Keeping an eye on your events and ensuring that you complete them by the end date will net you massive amounts of rewards. On top of Wishes, you can also get exclusive items that will never appear again.

Many events also drop lore, so it's always good to participate in the longer events. These typically run all through the patch, or at least for the duration of a single banner. Long events will feature characters from the games, unique mechanics, and other goodies that a Genshin fan will fall in love with. The Chasm's event, for example, contained lore specifically about missing Yaksha that the fanbase had long theorized could become another playable character.


1. Making Your Way Through The Story

One of the best ways to enjoyably rack up Primogems is by doing the story of the game. Genshin Impact is known for having a great story, and there are dozens of hours' worth of content to keep you entertained. Many of the characters also have their own story chapters, and many world quests tie into the lore of the world. The story gets longer with each region, and HoYoverse has constantly improved the quality of their quests and cutscenes.

Many story parts will give out Primogems for each segment, so you will be looking at a pretty sum by the time you catch up to the current version. In addition, going through the story, events take you all over the map. This gives you even more opportunities to discover chests or other quests. You will likely even unlock achievements while running around to add to your Primogem total.
