The Spiral Abyss resets every 15 days from Floor 8 to Floor 12.

A total of 600 Primogems are given each Spiral Abyss rotation. The Abyss will reset about three times during the 4.0 patch meaning you can obtain a total of 1800 Primogems (600 x 3).

The Shop resets every month on the first day of the week so make sure you buy the Fates before that.

4. HoYoLAB Daily Check-In

Genshin Impact has a Daily Check-In reward system each month at their HoYoLAB website where players can obtain a total of 80 primogems just by checking in the HoYoLAB App or Website. Tip: Players don’t need to complete the whole month to acquire 60 primogems each, only check in for 18 days straight.

5. Version 4.0 Update Compensation

When a new patch update hits, Genshin Impact takes a few hours (mainly around 5 hours) for maintenance of the update. After maintenance is done, players can log in to enjoy the fresh new patch update and also receive compensation in their Mail for the maintenance (600 primogems). Be warned that players should claim this mail during the update or else it will expire.

6. Version 4.0 Livestream

To bring excitement and hype around new updates, Genshin Impact usually hosts a Livestream for the upcoming patch and reveals bits through trailers and discussions. During the Livestream, they bring out three Codes to redeem where each code rewards you with 100 primogems. A total of 300 primogems can be obtained. Be sure to redeem the codes as soon as possible as they expire after 24 hours or less.

7. Test Runs

Each five-star they run banners for during the updates has a Test Run where players can check out the playable characters and how they function. After completing the Test Runs, players can claim 20 Primogems plus ascension materials for said characters.


Characters such as Lyney, Yelan, Zhongli, and Tartaglia will be having their re-run banners during the 4.0 updates hence a total of 80 Primogems can be obtained.

8. Permanent Story and Archons Quests

A new update means new Quests to complete and whether they are World Quests, Archon Quests, Story Quests, or a simple Hangout quest. The new 4.0 update has an abundance of quest content that players can fully play and immerse themselves into the story.

Each Story and Archon Quest gives us 60 Primogems whereas World Quests vary in terms of content. Here is a complete breakdown of the new quests and the estimated Primogems that players can receive from this permanent content:

  • Archon Quest Fontaine Chapter IV: Masquerade of the Guilty Act I: Prelude of Blancheur and Noirceur (60 Primogems)
  • Archon Quest Fontaine Chapter IV: Masquerade of the Guilty Act II: As Light Rain Falls without Reason (60 Primogems)
  • Lyney Story Quest Chapter Felis Fuscus Act I: The Forgotten Thief (60 Primogems)
  • All 4.0 Fontaine World Quests (~1000 Primogems)

9. Achievements

More achievement tasks are added to the new update of the game, including a whole new Achievement Category due to the new Region, Quests, and Exploration points being added in the game as well as other additions to the expansion which entails more achievements. Completing them all would result in obtaining a total of 500 Primogems.

10. World Exploration

The new version update introduces the brand new region Fontaine that is made explorable starting from Version 4.0. Just like any other new Regional updates, players get to explore this new Region filled with Teleport Waypoints, Statue of the Seven, Treasure Chests, Challenges, Puzzles, etc. Estimating the content we can explore during Version 4.0, suffice to say that players can obtain a total of approx. 3000 Primogems alone in exploration.
