Wriothesley, a character frequently mentioned in Genshin Impact 4.0 leaks, has received official confirmation from HoYoverse. After long speculation, the developer unveiled the character’s final design in a teaser trailer, which follows a series of leaks.
Among the numerous Fontaine character leaks for Genshin Impact 4.0, Wriothesley stands out as an anticipated new 5-star character. Version 4.0 marks the debut of Fontaine, the fifth central region in the open-world action RPG’s third year of content.
Fontaine is known as the Nation of Justice and is under the rule of the Hydro Archon, Focalors. Genshin Impact 4.0 leaks suggest that Furina might serve as the vessel for Focalors, although this remains unconfirmed.
Another character in Fontaine, Wriothesley, is revealed in some Genshin Impact 4.0 leaks, including details about their release date, Vision, weapon, and more.
Who is Wriothesley?
As per the Genshin Impact 4.0 leaks by Wriothesley, the character is depicted as a police officer stationed in Fontaine, but his exact rank within the institution remains undisclosed. The leaks indicate that he operates within the region’s prison system.
Notably, Wriothesley has a connection to Sigewinne, who was also revealed in the teaser trailer. The leaks imply that Sigewinne is somehow linked to Fontaine’s prison, corroborating Wriothesley’s background and familiarity.
Following the teaser trailer, speculations arose suggesting that Wriothesley might be visually impaired in Genshin Impact. In the video, he selects a beverage based on its temperature rather than visually inspecting it.
It is worth noting that he is seen holding up a piece of paper before making this drink choice. More details about Wriothesley are expected to be unveiled with the release of Genshin Impact 4.0 in August.
Wriothesley Release Date
While not expected to be introduced as playable in Version 4.0, there have been leaks concerning Wriothesley’s release date in Genshin Impact 4.0.
According to information shared by HutaoLover77 on Twitter, Wriothesley is expected to arrive in Version 4.1. Like Dehya in Version 3.5, the 5-star Wriothesley’s featured character banner will likely include the loot pool for the standard banner.
If Version 4.0 is set to be released on August 16 and Genshin Impact follows its regular six-week update schedule, Wriothesley’s release date will likely be September 27.
Wriothesley Vision & Weapon
The Vision and weapon of the character have been revealed in the Genshin Impact 4.0 leaks regarding Wriothesley. According to a post by HutaoLover77 on Twitter, Wriothesley will possess a Cryo Vision.
However, the teaser trailer on the Genshin Impact YouTube channel does not showcase his Vision; instead, it shows him sitting down with part of his outfit concealed by the table before him.
The leaked information about Wriothesley also includes his choice of weapon, a polearm for combat. Like his Cryo Vision, the Fontaine character teaser trailer doesn’t display the polearm either.
Despite being a Cryo Polearm user, the leaks suggest that his role in team compositions will be that of a Physical DPS rather than heavily relying on his elemental abilities. Wriothesley might share similarities with Eula in some ways, though he wields a different weapon type and possesses a distinct skill set.
Is There Wriothesley Gameplay?
As of now, there are no official or leaked sources providing gameplay of Wriothesley. Players must exercise patience to catch a glimpse of the upcoming Cryo character. Nevertheless, as the release date draws near, we can anticipate additional leaks and announcements to surface.
