If you’ve been playing the game since its launch in 2020 and are now at Genshin Impact World Level 8, you are probably done with all World Quests and Story Quests. However, you can still earn Primogems through the Daily Commission Quests which refresh every single day.

There are four Daily Commission Quests which give 10 Primogems each. An additional 20 Primogems await you at the Adventurer’s Guild after completing all four quests. You can get a total of 60 Primogems a day just by doing the dailies. In a month, you can get a maximum of 1,860 Primogems which is more than enough for one 10x Wish. Now that’s basic Genshin math!

If you haven’t explored Teyvat at 100%, you are missing out on a lot of Primogems from opening chests. These are the four types of chests in Genshin Impact and the number of Primogems that they yield:

  • Common chest – 0 to 2 Primogems
  • Exquisite chest – 2 to 5 Primogems
  • Precious chest – 5 Primogems

You can find chests hidden around Mondstadt, Liyue, Inazuma, and Sumeru, locked by mechanisms or enemies, and sometimes by completing missions.
