Verified Whistleblower Plusle has posted new details about the Arlekino that many Genshin Impact players have been waiting for. According to him, she will be Fontaine’s last new 5-star character, so it will not be released soon, but we will see her in the story already in patch 4.1.
It was previously noted that this Pyro heroine wields a one-handed sword, but it is now stated that she will use a polearm in combat. At the same time, either an ax with a long handle or a halberd will become its signature. As for her gameplay mechanics, they will also be tied to changing the health of the heroine. Her abilities are focused on crowd control. However, the insider warns that all this may change in the future.
Thanks to the PTL, it was also revealed that Chenyu Valley, which has been rumored since the release of the 3.3 update, will be added to the game in patch 4.4. Note that in version 4.3, Sumeru will reportedly be expanded by adding a new port settlement in the north.
Recall that Chenyu Valley is located in the north of Li Yue. It was previously believed that it was through it that players would be able to get to Fontaine, since there is a road to this Hydro kingdom. Perhaps the developers will first add a new Fontaine location in the southeast, and then introduce the tea valley so that the map does not look torn, as it is now.
