Genshin Impact 2.2 is set to arrive in less than a week, and players are eager for the next update to roll out. After all, a new version means a new way to obtain Primogems.

Childe 'Tartaglia' will be featured in the character banner for the third time, and gamers who missed his previous banner are eager to wish for him. Of course, the second event wish featuring Hu Tao also garners much attention as she is one of the excellent Pyro DPS in Genshin Impact.

Gamers need Primogems to pull in a banner, and the resources are quite limited. This article lists how F2P players can farm Primogems in Genshin Impact version 2.2.


Securing 13720 Primogems worth fates in Genshin Impact 2.2

F2P players are the ones who did not use real currency to buy in-game items like Genesis Crystal and Gnostic Hymn in Genshin Impact. Thus, their method to farm Primogems is relatively inadequate compared to P2P players.

Genshin Impact 2.2 update is dropping on October 13, and maintenance is expected to last five hours. Here is the method for F2P gamers to gather Primogems in version 2.2.

  1. Version 2.3 live stream redemption code = 300 Primogems
  2. Maintenance Compensation = 300 Primogems
  3. Issue Fix Compensation = 300 Primogems
  4. Daily Commission = 2520 Primogems
  5. Battle Pass = 5 Acquaint Fates (Worth 800 Primogems)
  6. Stardust Exchange = 10 Intertwined Fates + 10 Acquaint Fates (Worth 3200 Primogems)
  7. Spiral Abyss = 1800 Primogems
  8. Tsurumi Island exploration = 300 Primogems
  9. Statue of the Seven = 60 Primogems
  10. Sacred Sakura = 4 Intertwined Fates + 8 Acquaint Fates (Worth 1920 Primogems)
  11. New achievements = 300 Primogems
  12. Character Test Run = 40 Primogems
  13. New Events = 1680 Primogems
  14. Hangout Events = 120 Primogems
  15. HoYoLAB daily check-in = 80 Primogems

Starting from the first day until the last day of Genshin Impact version 2.2, there are 15 ways to obtain Primogems. If one follows all the methods on the list, they will get 13,720 Primogems worth of fates.


A detailed guide to obtain Primogems in version 2.2

Genshin Impact will undoubtedly launch a live stream a few weeks before version 2.3 to share the upcoming additions. In the live stream, there will be three redemption codes that players can use to claim Primogems. A total of 300 Primogems can be obtained by retrieving the codes before it expires.


Maintenance Compensation

Players will receive 60 Primogems for every hour the Genshin Impact server is unavailable for maintenance. They will receive a minimum of 300 Primogems after the update, which usually takes roughly five hours.


Issue Fix Compensation

Along with the planned maintenance compensation, gamers will receive an additional 300 Primogems for other issue-fix compensation. The in-game mail can be used to claim both compensations.


Daily Commission

Stardust Exchange

F2P players can obtain 36 stars in Spiral Abyss, but it will be a challenge indeed. One can deduct the number of Primogems obtained from the dungeon based on their situation.


Tsurumi Island exploration

By completing each of the tasks on the list, F2P players will receive 7800 Primogems and 37 Fates. In short, they will earn Fates worth 13,720 Primogems. While it is not enough to make 100 wishes in a banner, one may hit pity and receive a 5-star character or weapon in Genshin Impact.
