Patch 1.6 for “Genshin Impact” is now live, setting the stage for the game’s first summer event, the official prologue to the much-awaited Inazuma expansion and everything else in between, including thousands of free Primogems for everyone to acquire.

Players who are planning to roll for Kazuha’s banner by the end of the month still have plenty of time to get as many Wishes as possible. Here’s a quick breakdown and estimated total of every Primogem available in “Genshin Impact” 1.6, courtesy of the community at the Hoyolab forum.

“Genshin Impact” Primogem Breakdown for Patch 1.6

  • Daily commissions = 2,520 Primogems (+5 Fates worth 800 Primogems from BP)
  • New Story Quests = 120 Primogems
  • Character Test Runs = 40 Primogems (Klee and Kazuha)
  • Spiral Abyss = 1,800 Primogems (for completing three Abyss resets)
  • Midsummer Island Adventure = 240 Primogems
  • Echoing Tales = 360 Primogems
  • Kaboomball Kombat = 240 Primogems (approximate)
  • Never-Ending Battle = 420 Primogems (approximate)

Patch 1.6 will last for 42 days, starting on June 9 and ending on July 21.

A 7-day login event might occur during 1.6, which may add another 300 free Primogems to the tally. However, this is still unconfirmed.

Additionally, the Stardust Exchange shop will give another 3,200 Primogems’ worth of Fates assuming that players can afford to purchase both June and July’s stocks.

Take note that this is an estimated value, as the actual Primogem reward count for the upcoming events is not yet confirmed. However, events usually give 60 Primogems per completed objective, so the approximations above may be accurate.

Players who purchase two Blessings of the Welkin Moon will be able to gain an additional 3,780 Primogems over the course of Patch 1.6, while those who purchase the Battle Pass can get another 680 Primogems plus nine Fates worth 1,440 Primogems. Purchasing both premium options will result in approximately 13,540 Primogems over 42 days if all events, quests and content are cleared.
