Genshin Impact Server Time: Free primogems for downtime!

Genshin Impact has taken the gaming world by storm since its release.

Not just because of the amazing artistic visual and terrific RPG action it provides. Developer miHoYo also really care about their community.

The latest demonstration of that is free currency for server downtime!

Genshin Impact server maintenance

In a recent blog post, server maintenance for Genshin Impact was announced.

That means players will be unable to log-in and play.

The downtime should be 21 October 11pm UTC to 22 October 3am UTC. That's 12-4am BST.

miHoYo will be compensating players for the downtime with free in-game currency. Talk about a win!

LIKE NOTHING ELSE: Genshin brings an anime feel to an RPG adventure

Travelers will be able to receive 60 Primogems for each hour the servers are down. If servers go back online sooner than scheduled, the full compensation will be given of 240 Primogems. 

To be eligible for a payout of free Primogems, you must be at least Adventurer Rank 5 or above before the scheduled time. That doesn't give you a lot of time to get ready, so get to work!

This maintenance is to update the game to Version 1.1!

Why are Primogems important?

Primogems are premium in-game currency that can be traded in the games’ Wishes menu to roll on unique items and playable characters.

As Genshin Impact is a gacha game, Primogems can either be earned while playing the game’s story or bought for real currency in the games’ shop.

PRECIOUS RESOURCE: Primogems are hard to get so don't waste them!

The currency allows you to roll on special character banners that will give you a percentage chance on obtaining a rare character or item.

With Klee recently entering the game these free Primogems will really come in useful!
