Genshin Impact version 2.5 might have a surprisingly low amount of obtainable Primogems, even when the update seemed to have all sorts of new content. A calculation shown by a Reddit user shows the exact amount of obtainable primogems and a probable reason behind this.
New experimental event reason for low primogems count
The new event Three Realms Gateway Offering is an exploration event, where primogems are scattered all over Enkanomiya in form of chest and challenges. Unlike the original Enkanomiya release or Golden Apple Archipelago, where the entire map was filled to the brim with quests, hidden chests, and puzzles, this new event map lacks the same along with a lower amount of primogems count.
Generally aside from the events that come in every new update, the source of primogems are always the same. Therefore, the upcoming events are always the things that make a difference in the total primogem count for that version update. Every update has three to four events and they have at least 400 primogems each. However, the new exploration event has a lot fewer primogems than expected. Every patch always has at least 50 wishes worth of primogems, which also indicates why one of the battle pass missions can be completed by doing the same.
A primogems count graph diplays low primogems in Genshin Impact version 2.5
A Reddit User u/sectoidfodder has calculated and kept tabs on the overall primogems count. For every patch till now, and it’s no surprise 2.0 and 2.1 versions had the highest amount of primogems, except the very first version release, because of the release of a new region, Inazuma. From the graph, players can see the primogems count was gradually increasing albeit by a very small margin. Therefore, it is quite a surprise to see fewer primogems as compared to prior patches.
It’s confirmed that Ayato will be coming in Version 2.6 along with reruns of some highly anticipated characters. With the low primogems count of 2.5, it would be wise to save up primogems as much as one can. Now, the next version 2.6 or 2.7 will welcome the arrival of Chasm, which means massive amounts of primogems, which can also explain the lower amount of primogems in version 2.5.
