Genshin Impact 4.4 update maintenance compensation

As per tradition, to thank players for their patience during the server maintenance downtime and as an apology for some now-resolved gameplay issues, HoYoverse has provided generous maintenance compensation!

Following the completion of the five-hour maintenance window starting from 10 PM to 3 AM (GMT) on 31 January, players can expect to receive 600 Primogems as a reward. To claim your Primogems, simply log into Genshin Impact after downloading the 4.4 update.

However, there are a couple of important caveats to note. Firstly, to be eligible for the compensation, players must have reached Adventure Rank 5. Additionally, the rewards will be available through the in-game mail system but must be redeemed before the end of Version 4.4 as the mail carrying the Primogems will expire after 30 days. So make sure to collect your compensation on time!
