The shores of Teyvat are expanding and there’s a sprinkle of justice in the air. The much-anticipated Genshin Impact Version 4.0, titled “As Light Rain Falls Without Reason,” is about to make a splash on August 16. Allow us to be your guide into the heart of Fontaine, the fifth realm of Teyvat.
Where Art, Tech, and Culture Collide: Fontaine
A realm where justice reigns supreme and technology mingles seamlessly with culture and art, Fontaine awaits you. For those who’ve journeyed through the ‘Song of the Dragon and Freedom’ questline, you’re in for a treat. An enigmatic waypoint near the Sumeru desert’s northeastern edge unveils the majestic Fontaine, perched grandly atop a cascading waterfall. Once there, hop onto an aquabus and let the Melusine crew give you a panoramic view of Fontaine’s iconic locales.
Note to Gamers: Delve into Fontaine’s abundant World Quests upon arrival. Yet, only the completion of the Caribert Archon Quest will open doors to Fontaine’s main Archon Quest.
Justice & Performance: Fontaine’s Unique Power System
Guided by Focalors, the current Hydron Archon, Fontaine channels its unique Indemnitium energy, harnessed from the populace’s faith in justice. This energy not only fuels the city’s lights and transportation but also takes center stage at the grand Opera Epiclese. It’s here, amidst a blend of magic, drama, and performance, where the magician pair, Lyney and Lynette, prepare for their debut.
Gaze from the Opera and let Fontaine’s urban splendor enamor you. Amidst a vibrant tapestry of opera houses, fashion outlets, and innovative workshops, there’s a darker underbelly lurking in Fontaine’s sewers.
Mechanical Marvels & Underwater Mysteries
Fontaine boasts of cutting-edge tech advancements. Perhaps you’ve glimpsed their genius with tools like the Kamera. Dive deeper and discover the Pneumousia—a newfound energy source powering Fontaine’s clockwork marvels, both friendly and foe.
Dance with Coppelius and Coppelia, the clockwork meka duo, in the exhilarating “Icewind Suite” challenge. Be prepared for balletic combat sequences and icy whirlwinds of Cryo damage.
As Fontaine is ensconced by waters, the city promises a unique subaquatic experience. Stories whisper of ancient submerged sites and lurking aquatic beasts. And for the first time, Travelers can plunge into the deep without the fear of oxygen depletion, courtesy of Fontaine’s blessings.
Meet Fontaine’s Illustrious Trio
Fontaine introduces three new characters: the magician siblings, Lyney and Lynette, and the adept diver, Freminet. Adventurers of Rank 25 and above, brace yourselves for a pleasant surprise—a chance to add Lynette to your team during the seasonal event.
