Genshin Impact Moonlight Merriment Event: Release date, rewards, location, more


The Moonlight Merriment event has officially started in Genshin Impact, rewarding players with free Primogems and other in-game goodies. 

Genshin Impact is currently celebrating its one-year anniversary and miHoYo is kicking things off with the Moonlight Merriment Event. This in-game event will enable players to claim some free Primogems by completing missions, defeating powerful enemies, and cooking up some delicious delicacies. 

Unlike the Anniversary Event, players will be able to unlock all the Moonlight Merriment rewards by taking part in various activities scattered around Teyvat. Whether you’re looking to add more Primogems to your collection or need more Hero’s Wit and Mora, then the game’s new event will enable you to do just that. 


The Moonlight Merriment will reward players with plenty of rewards.

The Moonlight Merriment event will kick off on September 27, 2021, and run until October 10, 2021. This means players have 12 days to unlock all the rewards on offer.
