Genshin Impact 3.4 Server Maintenance Schedule

The game servers will go under maintenance for Genshin Impact 3.4 on January 18, 2022, at 6:00 am server time (Chinese Standard Time).

In other time zones, Genshin Impact servers will go down at:

  • EST - January 17 at 5 pm.
  • PT - January 17 at 2 pm.
  • GMT - January 17 at 10 pm

Servers will be down for around 5 hours, and players will receive compensatory Primogems for the time they cannot play the game.

Free Primogems for Server Maintenance

Travelers will receive 60 Primogems for each hour the servers are unavailable, even if they are back online before the 5 hours scheduled. Players will still obtain a minimum of 300 Primogems.

Additionally, miHoYo gives 300 Primogems compensation for all the bug fixes in the previous update. So, travelers who log in to the game after the maintenance receive 600 Primogems, equal to four wishes.

Free Primogems will be delivered to each player by in-game email. In addition, if the maintenance takes more than 5 hours, an extra 60 Primogems for each hour of delay will be added.
