Genshin Impact Microtransactions Guide - Best Buys, Explainers & more

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play game.

It's a style of game that has a bad reputation because of the way they're designed to get you on a hook.

That means despite how cute and colourful it appears, there's a murky underbelly there trying to get you to spend your hard-earned money on one thing or another.

You might be wondering about putting money into the game.

Maybe you've been playing for dozens of hours and you feel like you should reward the devs for making such an enjoyable game. Maybe you just like shiny things.

Do you need to spend money in Genshin Impact?

Before we get into the best microtransactions, it's worth noting whether or not you even need to spend money.

Let's make this nice and clear for you to make sure nobody gets confused: You don't need to spend money on Genshin Impact, it'll give you everything you need to play it for free.

FREE TO PAY - Microtransactions will help you make quicker progress in-game

While the money you put in will benefit you, it's ultimately a PvE game, which means you really don't need to invest anything to enjoy the experience.

You'll even get new characters and weapons as you go through the game anyway, so don't ever feel like you have to spend money to succeed.

Which microtransactions are the best?

There are plenty of little microtransactions on offer in Genshin Impact, but there's only really one worth buying.

The only one we recommend is the Blessing of the Welkin Moon, which is basically a login bonus granted to you for thirty days.

DECISIONS, DECISIONS - One microtransaction stands out above the rest

As long as you log in daily you'll 2,700 Primogens and you'll get 300 Genesis Crystals instantly.

This basically amounts to 20 summons in total, making it easily the best of the bunch if you're looking to splash some cash on the game.

Of course, if you want to spend more money then you can, but we recommend just sticking with this one if you want to get the most bang (swords and characters) for your buck (or whatever currency you're using).
