What are Genesis Crystals?
Genesis Crystals are the in-game special currency in Genshin Impact. These can be used to purchase “Bundle” and redeem into "Primogems" which are used to exchange for "Intertwined Fate or Acquaint Fate" and travelers can use them to draw special characters and weapons in "Wish".
Note: Please consider carefully before carrying out account linking. Once linked, the account stays linked permanently.
1. Why is my Genesis Crystals does not reflect in the account even though the SEAGM order was completed?
The Genesis Crystal is unable to be done between different platforms, therefore players who have registered an account on the PSN terminal cannot see the Genesis Crystal on the PSN device after recharging on the web page. You would need to Cross-Save the account in order to use the Genesis Crystals or convert as Primogems.
2. Why do I need to cross-save the account?
In order to activate the Genesis Crystals purchased from SEAGM, you would need to cross-save your account in PC or Mobile Version, then later convert the Genesis Crystals into Primogems on PC or Mobile, after conversion you can spend the Primogems in any of PSN/PC/Mobile platform.
3. How do I enable the cross-save function between an account for PSN and a third-party account?
(i) If the miHoYo Account associated with the third-party account is linked to an email: Using an account for PSN that has never logged into Genshin Impact, please enter the game for the first time and follow the instructions that appear on the pop-up window to link the email associated with your miHoYo Account.
(ii) If the miHoYo Account associated with your third-party account is not linked to an email, please log in to Genshin Impact using your third-party account, link an email in Settings > Account > User Center > Link Account, then follow the relevant account linking procedure to link your account for PSN.
(iii) Third-party accounts cannot be linked to an account for PSN that has previously logged in to Genshin Impact.
4. Are Genesis Crystals purchased on iOS/Android/PC and on PlayStation shared between platforms via the cross-save function?
No. After account linking, Genesis Crystals obtained on iOS/Android/PC and Genesis Crystals obtained on PlayStation will not be linked for the same account. This includes but is not limited to Genesis Crystals obtained via the following means: top-ups, refunds, and compensation for top-up errors for Blessing of the Welkin Moon and Battle Pass. Likewise, Genesis Crystals obtained by top-ups on PlayStation will not be displayed on iOS/Android/PC. When switching platforms, the Genesis Crystals from different platforms will not be displayed. Travelers can use these Genesis Crystals as per usual on the platform on which they were obtained.
(i) if Travelers top-up Genesis Crystals on PC and then play Genshin Impact on PlayStation, the Genesis Crystals topped-up on PC will not be displayed and cannot be used. However, Travelers can return to the PC platform to use these Genesis Crystals.
(ii) If Travelers have topped up Genesis Crystals on PlayStation, these Genesis Crystals will not be displayed and will not be available when playing the game on iOS/Android/PC. However, Travelers can return to PlayStation to use these Genesis Crystals.
4. What type of account can be linked?
The account to be linked must meet the following conditions: for the account for PSN and the email address to be linked, either the account for PSN must not have been used to log into Genshin Impact, or the email address must not yet have been used to register a miHoYo Account.
Example of two cases:
(i) If the account for PSN has not been used to log into Genshin Impact, an email address that has been used to register a miHoYo Account can be linked to the account for PSN.
(ii) If the email address has not been used to register a miHoYo Account, an account for PSN that has been used to log into Genshin Impact can be linked to this email address. At the same time, this email address will be used to register a miHoYo Account.
5. After linking my account for PSN, can I top-up Genesis Crystals on iOS/Android/PC for a miHoYo Account registered on PlayStation, or vice versa?
Cross-platform top-up is currently not supported. Top-ups for a miHoYo Account registered on PlayStation can only be carried out on PlayStation or from the Top-Up Center website. Top-ups for a miHoYo Account registered on iOS/Android/PC can only be carried out on iOS/Android/PC or from the Top-Up Center website.
6. Why is my account not able to be linked?
Your account for PSN has already been used to log in to Genshin Impact and you want to link it to an email address that is already associated with a miHoYo Account. In this case, account linking will not be possible. The reason for this is that your account for PSN automatically registers a miHoYo Account after logging into Genshin Impact. Thus, it cannot be linked to an email address that is already associated with a different miHoYo Account.
Hence, Travelers, if you want to link an account for PSN that has logged in to Genshin Impact to your email address, you must ensure that your email address is not associated with a miHoYo Account yet.
7. What are the benefits of linking accounts?
After account linking, Primogems from the same miHoYo Account will be displayed on iOS/Android/PC/PlayStation and can be used on any of these platforms.
8. Can I unlink my accounts after linking them?
This function currently does not support unlinking. Please consider carefully before carrying out account linking.
9. How can I check the linked email address in my account?
After logging in to your Genshin Impact account, you can check your linked email address under Settings > Account > User Center.
