As a token of appreciation for players' patience during the server maintenance downtime, HoYoverse will provide maintenance compensation! Following the completion of the five-hour maintenance window starting from 6 am (UTC+8) on 16 August, players can expect to receive 300 Primogems as a reward. To claim your Primogems, simply log into Genshin Impact after downloading and installing the 4.0 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 4.0. The mail carrying the Primogems will also expire after 30 days. So make sure to collect your compensation in a timely manner!
