Genshin Impact just showed off a demo for their new character, Wriothesley. He’s a powerful Cryo catalyst user, and Hoyoverse announced him back in August, even before the Fontaine region arrived. In update 4.1, HoYoverse already added some new characters, like the brave Chief Justice Neuvillette.
The banner with Neuvillette and Hu Tao is finished, and it’s time for some new special characters. In Genshin Impact 4.1, they’ve announced that Wriothesley and Venti will be the next limited five-star characters in the second part of the update.
Genshin Impact often makes videos to show off their new characters. They recently released one about a Cryo Catalyst character named Wriothesley in a video called “Art of Improvisation.” In the video, Wriothesley demonstrates his strong fighting skills by defeating tough enemies.
We don’t know much about Wriothesley except that he used to be a prisoner at the Fortress of Meropide, which is Fontaine’s main prison. But now, he’s in charge of the prison and has made some big changes to how it works.
Despite scaring some people in Fontaine with his looks, Wriothesley is actually a serene character who wants to be fair to everyone. He got a fancy title from Palais Mermonia, which is a big deal in Hydro Nation. In battles, he likes fighting up close, even though he uses catalysts like Shikanoin Heizou.
Wriothesley is the first Genshin Impact character who uses Cryo attacks just by hitting normally with his weapon, a Cryo catalyst. This makes him a potential top choice for teams that need a strong Cryo damage dealer. Some fans feel that Cryo has been less popular lately because of new Dendro elemental reactions introduced by HoYoverse.
But, if special characters like Wriothesley are introduced, it might make Cryo users more popular in the next few weeks. There have been leaks hinting that Wriothesley will be available in the Standard Banner after his Limited Banner ends. However, since there’s no official confirmation yet, he’s still considered part of the limited lineup for now.
