Primogems are very important to progressing in Genshin Impact, as they serve as the game’s main form of currency for purchasing Acquaint and Intertwined Fate. Using these currencies, you’ll be able to unlock new characters and special items.

How to Get More Primogems in Genshin Impact

For the most part, Primogems are be found throughout the game pretty naturally. The bulk of this currency will drop after combat or completing a quest. You’ll also find plenty of these scattered throughout Temples and located in common and exquisite chests.

Other easy ways to stock up on Primogems can be done by completing challenges in the Adventurer Handbook. From Adventure Rank Level 12 you’ll be given a steady stream of daily Commission Quests from the Adventurer’s Guild.

You can also ensure that you’re finishing tasks in the Achievements section., since doing so nets you a slew of different awards, including gems.

The Events Tab of the menu also offers many reward-based missions, ranging from the Seize The Day to Test Runs.

Of course, you can also purchase Primogems with Genesis Crystals. This is the premium currency that costs real world money to purchase.

It costs 160 Primogems per Acquaint Fate and Intertwined Fate.

After you get your hands on all the Primogems you need, you can head over to the Acquaint Fate and Intertwined Fate and go on a well-deserved shopping spree.

Grind High Level Areas (Musk Reef)

Another great way to rack up primogems is by farming them in high level areas. One such place that is perfect for getting a lot is a secret island known as Musk Reef.

You can head to this area once you’ve reached Adventure Rank 20. To get to the island, you’ll need to follow a few steps, so check out our dedicated guide on that first here.

Thanks to it’s higher level this island has a lot more resources for you to unearth, especially when it comes to its dungeon, The Abyss. Inside, you’ll face a number of difficult enemies, with time limit instructions giving out rewards accordingly.

Each level of the dungeon has one of these challenges, with the reward allowing you to get up to 900 Gems in total for completing all three floors at the highest star rating.

How to Get More Primogems in Genshin Impact:

  1. Complete challenges in the Adventurer Handbook.

  2. Pick them up while exploring (chests), defeating enemies, and completing quests.

  3. Complete objectives in the Events Tab.
