Primogems Calculation for Version 4.0

This guide will show you how many Primogems you will get in Genshin Impact version 4.0 and also how that calculation is achieved!

Here is the estimation for Primogems one can obtain in Genshin Impact version 4.0! The first thing you need to know is that version 4.0 will have a duration of 42 days, starting from August 16 to September 27. Remember that this is speculation based on the previous versions’ events and gameplay, and by no means official!

How to Get 12480/16940 Primogems in Genshin Impact Version 4.0

From the infographic I created above, F2P players will get 12480 Primogems, 7 Acquaint Fates, and 10 Intertwined Fates. On the other hand, P2P players will get even more with the addition of Gnostic Hymn and Welkin, resulting in a total of 16940 Primogems, 11 Acquaint Fates, and 10 Intertwined Fates.

Game Update Compensation

The update maintenance for version 4.0 will begin on August 16 at 06:00 AM (UTC+8) based on the previous maintenance update, and once the maintenance is complete, all players will get 600 Primogems from their in-game mail. You have lots of time to claim it because it will expire in 29 days.

Daily Commissions

Now for the usual stuff, since we will have 42 days in version 4.0, multiply that by 60 Primogems per day, and you will get a total of 2520 Primogems. Of course, that is if you manage to do all the commissions without skipping a day.

Paimon’s Bargain

For Paimon’s Bargain, I include the Fates you can buy from September only (because the August one is already added in version 3.8), so you can get a total of 5 Acquaint Fates and 5 Intertwined Fates from Paimon’s Bargain Shop.

Spiral Abyss

Ah yes, the bane of our existence- the Spiral Abyss. There are only 2 cycles in version 4.0, but I will also include the last cycle from 3.8 because it will refresh on the day of the 4.0 update maintenance. If you manage to get full stars for all cycles, you can get 1800 Primogems (600 Primogems in a cycle).
✦ 3rd cycle of version 3.8 – August 16
✦ 1st cycle of version 4.0 – September 1
✦ 2nd cycle of version 4.0 – September 16

Battle Pass

There are 2 types of Battle Pass here: Sojourner’s Battle Pass (Free) and Gnostic Hymn (Paid). Obviously, both give different rewards.
✦ Sojourner’s Battle Pass – 5 Acquaint Fates
✦ Gnostic Hymn – 4 Intertwined Fates & 680 Primogems

Blessing of the Welkin Moon

Another P2P option is where you will get 90 Primogems daily for 30 days. If you continuously have the Welkin Moon for the entire version 4.0, you will get a total of 3780 Primogems (Not including the Genesis Crystal).

Archon Quests

There are 2 new Archon Quests in version 4.0, and each of them will give you 60 Primogems and 1 Intertwined Fate. If you don’t remember where did that Fate come from, it’s from the Tour Guide in Adventurer’s Handbook that will give you 1 Intertwined Fate from each Archon Quest you’ve completed. Since there are 2 new Archon Quests in version 4.0, you will get 2 Intertwined Fates after completing them.
In total, you will get 2 Intertwined Fates and 120 Primogems from the Archon Quests in version 4.0.

Lyney Story Quest

Lyney will have his own Story Quest in version 4.0, and by completing it, you can get 60 Primogems (does not include Primogems from treasure chests in a possible domain).

Fontaine World Quests

Since we will have a new region, there is a 100% chance we will be getting new World Quests. But the number of quests is definitely not confirmed. Thus, we can only predict for it to be more or less 1000 Primogems by completing all of them after the update maintenance.

Fontaine Explorations

Another indeterminate number of Primogems are from the explorations. We caught a sneak peek of the Fontaine region in the livestream, and it’s definitely massive considering Fontaine has both surface and underwater puzzles (that the developer mentioned has a 50:50 ratio). So, combining all the possible Primogems from activating and leveling up Statue of the Sevens, Waypoints, Domain, completing puzzles, and claiming treasure chests, you may obtain 3000 Primogems or even more!

New Achievements

Alongside new World Quests, we will also get a new set of achievements. And since it’s also unconfirmed how many achievements they will add in version 4.0, it’s assumed that we will get more or less 500 Primogems.

Character Test Runs

There are 4 5-star characters in version 4.0, meaning there will be 4 character test runs that provide 20 Primogems per character. You will get a total of 80 Primogems by completing all test runs.

New Events

There are 4 new events in version 4.0 that gives out Primogems, totaling up to 2260 Primogems. Here’s how you get that number:
1. Mega Meka Melee: ~1000 Primogems
2. Relic Records: Creations of the Hydro Nation: 420 Primogems
3. Studies in Light and Shadow: A Fontaine of Enchantment: 420 Primogems
4. Verdict of Blades: Advanced: 420 Primogems

HoYoLAB Daily Check-In

There will be 4 times when you will get Primogems from the Daily Check-In, which are on August 18, September 4, September 11, and September 18 (If you check-in everyday without missing a day). In total, you will get 80 Primogems.

HoYoLAB Web Events

There will usually be 1-3 web events in the duration of one version of Genshin Impact. The thing is, it is mostly random and cannot be predicted. So, the only way you can notice these kinds of events is by keeping up with the Genshin Impact announcements.
Long story short, you may get more or less 100 Primogems by playing any web events available whenever it’s released.

V4.1 Livestream Redeem Codes

Redemption code from 4.0 live stream that has already expired

As usual, there will be a Special Program 2 weeks before the update maintenance, and version 4.1 is not excluded from the trend. In the live stream, you will get 300 Primogems after claiming three new redemption codes.

New Version Code

The second row of mail is the reward for new version code

After a few hours of update maintenance, one new redemption code will be available for you to redeem. This occurs every version and I don’t think the developer will stop anytime soon. The said code will give you 60 Primogems and usually will stay available until the end of the said version.

And with that, you can obtain the number of Primogems I calculate for Genshin Impact 4.0. Once again I want to stress that this calculation is merely an estimation of how many Primogems and Fates you will get in the next update. It is by no means official!
