A detailed guide to obtain 16740 Primogems in 2.6 update
1) Maintenance Compensation
Maintenance is always scheduled and informed to the players ahead of time for the inconvenience. Once the update is completed, the developers will gift all players 300 Primogems to make it up to them.
2) Issue Fix Compensation
Besides maintenance, bugs and issue fixes will also receive another 300 Primogems as compensation. Players can access both of these rewards from their in-game mail.
3) Daily Commissions
Each version of Genshin Impact is usually active for 42 days. Travelers can complete their Daily Commissions, which will reset every day for six weeks, earning them a total of 2520 Primogems.
4) Soujourner's Battle Pass
The Battle Pass is a reward every player in Genshin Impact gets in every update. By completing tasks and leveling up the Battle Pass, they will receive rewards such as five Acquaint Fates, which is equivalent to 800 Primogems.
5) Gnostic Hymn Battle Pass
Gnostic Hymn is similar to the Sojourner's Battle Pass, but with more rewards that can be obtained using real-life cash to unlock it. Travelers who buy Gnostic Hymns and complete the various tasks can obtain 4 Intertwined Fates and 680 Primogems. In other words, they will collect 1320 Primogems.
6) Blessing of the Welkin Moon
This is another method purely for P2P players as they need to use real-life money tobuy it. With the purchase, players will get 90 Primogems daily by opening their account in the game. In total, they will receive 3780 Primogems from this method alone.
7) Stardust Exchange
Stardust Exchange is a shop in Paimon's Bargain, where players can buy Intertwined and Acquaint Fates every month. The shop provides a total of 10 Fates every month, so players can obtain 3200 Primogems by combining the total Fates from both April and May.
8) Spiral Abyss
Spiral Abyss will reset three times during Genshin Impact version 2.6. In each cycle, Travelers can obtain 600 Primogems by clearing all floors with full stars. A total of 1800 Primogems can be collected from this dungeon.
9) New Map
The Chasm is a new map that will be added to Genshin Impact 2.6, and players are guaranteed to find new treasure chests and puzzles that will provide Primogems as rewards by clearing them. Travelers who complete exploring the map may obtain at least 500 Primogems.
10) New Events
The special program preview has confirmed that there will be four new events in the upcoming version. Following the trend from previous events, each of them will give players at least 420 Primogems.

11) New Achievements
A new version always leads to new achievements. Although it is not confirmed how many new achievements will be added to the next update, players can assume that they will obtain about 100 Primogems.
12) Character Test Runs
Three 5-star characters will have their banner in version 2.6. Their banners will also come with test runs, where players can try their kits before deciding whether to wish for the said character or not. By completing all the test runs, Travelers will obtain 60 Primogems.
13) HoYoLAB daily check in = 80 Primogems
Another simple method to farm Primogems is by simply checking in to the HoYoLAB forum daily. Over the course of 42 days, they will get 80 Primogems.
