Suna 4

Lots of bad advices. This is not a guide, new players don't follow these

Anonymous 3

Under the "Primogems Amount Per Original Resin Replenish" It says first time cost is 60 Primogems, but it is 50. The screenshot above it even shows the 50 Primogem cost. 60 is how much Original Resin you get.

This is not even close to any "guide". Just some info what gives gems...

Anonymous 1

Not even one point of this list is really farming, maybe the closest one would be the dialy missions, and they are not really "Farmeable" per se.
