Genshin Impact 4.4 server downtime

Genshin Impact 4.4 server downtime will last around five hours. As you can see in the table above, the Genshin Impact downtime for updates is typically around this mark. If, for whatever reason, the downtime is longer, we all get an extra 60 Primogems for every hour the update is delayed.

Genshin Impact 4.4 maintenance rewards

We always get 300 Primogems as compensation for server downtime and the release of the new patch. There is then an extra 300 Primogems if there are any issue fixes deployed in the patch.
