Genshin Impact players can complete four commissions every day for 10 Primogems each. The Adventurers’ Guild rewards 20 more for completing all four tasks, so players can get 60 Primogems every day just from commissions.

#2 - Achievements

Each achievement in Genshin Impact awards is between five and 20 Primogems. Players can find incomplete achievements in the tab under Paimon’s menu. However, some achievements are hidden, and players may have to play the game in strange ways to unlock them.

#3 - Events

Players can complete the new Test Run domains whenever the event banners rotate. Genshin Impact awards 20 Primogems for trying out the featured 5-star character in a short challenge.

Cumulatively, Test Runs in Genshin Impact provide a small handful of valuable resources. Moreover, players get the chance to play unowned characters and decide whether they want to wish on the character event banner.

New Story Quests often provide Primogems to players who complete them. Completing these quests is also often necessary to unlock future quests, so players should try to play through the main storyline whenever possible.

In the Spiral Abyss, everything up to Floor 8 only gives rewards once, including a total of 1200 Primogems. On the other hand, players can replay Floor 9 and beyond for rewards whenever the Spiral Abyss updates.

Every period of the Spiral Abyss, players can get up to 600 Primogems from completing the final four floors.

#7 - HoYoLAB daily check-in

Players should keep looking for new redeem codes, especially since these codes often contain Primogems.

  1. Open Genshin Impact of PC or mobile
  2. Click on Paimon’s menu
  3. Navigate to Settings > Account > Redeem Code
  4. Enter the code and click “Exchange”

Anyone saving Primogems to buy wishes should also keep in mind Paimon’s Bargains. Here, players can buy wishes without Primogems, spending Stardust and Starglitter instead.
