The best way to farm Primogems in Genshin Impact is by completing Commissions and the Spiral Abyss. There are both once off and repeatable rewards to earn. Here’s what you need to do to help save up for those banner rolls.

Farming Primogems

Once-off rewards are great but what were really interested in is how we can continuously earn Primogems for the long run. Let’s take a look at our options.

1. Daily Commissions

Daily Commissions are available at AR12. It’s the most accessible and easy way to farm Primogems.

Everyday you will receive 4 commissions from the Adventurers’ Guild. Each commission gives 10 Primogems and completing all 4 gives an additional 20 Primogems.

That’s 60 Primogems every day.

2. Spiral Abyss

The Spiral Abyss is available at AR20. However the earlier stages only give a once off first clear Primogem reward (more on this later).

Floors 9+ of the Spiral Abyss reset fortnightly. These floors reward 150 Primogems per floor.

However these floors are quite difficult. Unlike with Daily Commissions this method is accessible to beginners.

Currently there are 12 Floors available. That’s 1,200 Primogems per month.

If we just go off a 30 day month that’s a total of 3,000 Primogems up for grabs from Daily Commissions + Spiral Abyss.

3. Monthly Card

Whilst this is a paid method we couldn’t not mention it as it is another source of consistent Primogems.

The monthly card gives 300 Genesis Crystals instantly plus 90 Primogems per day. Genesis Crystals can be converted into Primogems at a 1:1 ratio.

Essentially equating to 3,000 Primogems per month. Yup the monthly card basically doubles what you can earn as a F2P player.

4. Battle Pass

The Battle Pass is available at AR20. It is a seasonal feature with a set of rewards that can be unlocked by leveling the Battle Pass.

The Primogem reward however is only available to those who have purchased the premium Battle Pass (rewards may change in the future).

Currently reaching Lv.50 (Max) Battle Pass rewards 680 Primogems.

Once Time Rewards

Alright let’s now take a look at the one time rewards. You can’t farm these but they give a significant boost to your Primogem wallet.

1. Spiral Abyss

Clearing Floors 1-8 will give a one time Primogem reward. This is one of the biggest ways to boost your Primogem savings.

Earning Stars from floors chambers will reward Primogems. You can earn up to 9 Stars per floor:

  • 3 Stars = 100 Primogems
  • 6 Stars = 100 Primogems
  • 9 Stars = 100 Primogems

That’s a total of 300 Primogems per floor. Totaling 2,400 Primogems across floors 1-8.

2. Opening Chests

Chests are littered all across the world of Genshin Impact. Opening them reward Primogems:

  • Common: 0-2 Primogems
  • Exquisite: 2-5 Primogems
  • Precious: 5 Primogems
  • Luxurious: 10-40 Primogems
  • Shrine: 40 Primogems

All you have to do is find them. Luckily there’s a very nice interactive map for that.

Whilst I would not recommend going from one chest to the next. If you see one in the area you might want to open it even if it’s a small detour.

More importantly, do chests respawn? The simple answer now is no. Not even common chests respawn. Although new chests may appear as your AR increases the total amount available is finite.

Hopefully this changes in the future.

3. Adventure Rank

As you level up your AR you can go visit the Adventurer’s Guild to collect your reward. Often times this includes Primogems.

Additionally more Primogem rewards are available as you complete your Investigation Progress via your Adventurer Handbook.

4. Domain Dungeons

Discovering new Domains will reward 5 Primogems. Clearing them gives 40 Primogems.

5. Statue of The Seven

Leveling up your Statue of The Seven will reward Primogems. You will receive a total of 90 Primogems for both the Anemo and Geo Statues. Totaling 180 Primogems.

6. Achievements

There’s a whole bunch of achievements in Genshin Impact and they reward Primogems.

It’s probably not something you would go out of your way to clear. But you’ll find that you’ll progressively clear them as you play the game.

7. A Few More

  • Discovering new teleport way points will reward 5 Primogems.
  • Completing story quests and side quests rewards Primogems.
  • Event Rewards, this includes that generous launch event reward you’ll find in your mail upon reaching AR7 (this may not be available in the future).
