Genshin Impact doesn’t flood you with premium currency. However, there are a few of them, and yes, to accept a lot of in-game characters, you have to pay attention to them, but you don’t have to spend real-world money. Instead, you mostly own the game and earn Primogems by completing achievements, doing quests, fighting, exploring; almost all in-game activities reward you with Primogem prizes.
There are two different premium currencies, Masterless Stardust and Masterless Starglitter, which you can use to receive weapons and characters directly, rather than getting them through Wishes.
You can use the currency in the shop, but you’ll need to go to Paimon’s Bargains, under the Starglitter exchange. There are various kinds of characters, weapons, artifacts, and even an Intertwined Fate and Acquaint Fate that you can buy directly using the currency. This is a great way to bypass any of the Gacha formats to receive the item you want to buy right away.
You only accept Masterless Stardust and Masterless Starglitter from Wishes. To avoid using Wishes to unlock characters and equipment directly, you must use Wishes to unlock this currency. It’s not the worst thing globally, especially if you think about how many Wishes you can do just by playing games, browsing, and doing content.
You are assigned Masterless Stardust and Masterless Starglitter based on the draws you receive for your Wishes. The following is the description.
- Duplicate 5-star Character – 10 Masterless Starglitter, 1 Stella Fortuna
- Duplicate 5-star Character (Constellations maxed) – 25 Masterless Starglitter
- Duplicate 4-star Character – 2 Masterless Starglitter, 1 Stella Fortuna for them
- Duplicate 4-star Character (Constellations maxed) – 5 Masterless Starglitter
- 5-star Weapon – 10 Masterless Starglitter
- 4-star Weapon – 2 Masterless Starglitter
- 3-star Weapon – 15 Masterless Stardust
The odds weren’t so bad. You can get the best deals by having duplicate 5-star Characters with all constellations maxed out. It gives you the most. Others offer you large portions, and based on how often you ask in wishes; it is a steady income that you can spend at Paimon’s Bargain store.
Make sure to check out these offers regularly as items for Masterless Stardust and Masterless Starglitter rotate around every month. The higher the adventure rank you have, the more items you can buy closer to the bottom, giving you a more comprehensive selection.
