The Mysteries of Furina’s Dual Arkhe Powers, Constellations, and Talent Passives
Genshin Impact enthusiasts, the time to get hyped is now! The highly anticipated character, Furina, who also doubles as the Archon of Hydro in the realm of Fontaine, is poised to make her grand debut in the upcoming 4.2 update. With a character banner scheduled for Version 4.2, Furina is set to follow in the footsteps of Neuvillette, the serious non-partisan judge of Genshin Impact’s 4.1 update. But thanks to a recent leak, we don’t have to wait until the official release to unravel the mysteries of Furina’s abilities. Brace yourselves as we delve into the exciting details of Furina’s kit in Genshin Impact, covering her skills, constellations, and more.
Furina: The Drama Queen of Fontaine
Furina, also known as Focalors, wields a Hydro Sword and is already making waves in the Genshin Impact community as one of the most highly anticipated characters in the game. While we haven’t had the chance to witness her gameplay in action yet, the leaked information provides us with a tantalizing glimpse into her abilities.
Furina’s Normal Attacks: A Dual Arkhe Experience
The leaks reveal that Furina’s Normal Attacks are unlike any other character in Genshin Impact, as they have both Arkhe alignments—Thorns (Pneuma) and Surging Blades (Ousia). Most characters in Fontaine possess only one innate alignment, making Furina a unique addition to the roster. Here’s a breakdown of her Normal Attacks:
- Normal Attack: Furina performs up to 4 consecutive strikes, adhering to the standard attack pattern.
- Charged Attack: This attack deals Physical damage and also changes Furina’s Arkhe alignment. When her alignment shifts, either Thorns (Pneuma) or Surging Blades (Ousia), a corresponding elemental effect occurs. Her default Arkhe alignment will be Ousia.
- Plunging Attack: Furina’s plunging attack remains consistent with the standard plunging attack mechanic.
Furina’s Elemental Skill: A Tale of Two Alignments
Furina’s Elemental Skill presents two distinct effects based on her current Arkhe alignment, either Ousia or Pneuma. Let’s explore these effects in more detail:
- Furina’s Ousia alignment allows her to unleash an AoE Hydro DMG attack based on her Max HP.
- She summons three Salon Members: the Ball Octopus-shaped Gentilhomme Usher, the Bubbly Seahorse-shaped Surintendante Chevalmarin, and the Armored Crab-shaped Mademoiselle Crabealetta.
- These summoned companions deal Hydro DMG based on Furina’s Max HP.
- If character(s) within proximity maintain more than 50% HP, the Salon Members will consume their HP to boost their current attack’s power, determined by the number of characters who have lost HP. The more characters losing HP, the greater the Members’ attacks become, dealing 110%/120%/130%/140% of their original DMG.
- When Furina aligns with Pneuma, she summons the Singers of the Streams, who are adept at healing nearby active characters.
- Both the Singers and Salon Members share a common duration. If Furina switches characters, the second summon will end at the same time as the first one was supposed to, maintaining balance between the two effects.
Furina’s Elemental Burst: Universal Revelry
Furina’s Elemental Burst is known as “Let the People Rejoice.” Unlike her Normal Attacks and Elemental Skill, her Elemental Burst has no alignment intricacies. Instead, it deals AoE Hydro damage and grants buffs based on how much her HP fluctuates. Here are the details:
Elemental Burst: “Let the People Rejoice” deals AoE Hydro DMG based on Furina’s Max HP.
- It induces a state called the “Universal Revelry,” affecting all party members. During this state, when the HP of nearby party members increases or decreases, they generate Fanfare points for Furina. The number of Fanfare points correlates with the percentage of HP change.
- Furina, in turn, enhances the DMG dealt by and incoming Healing Bonus of all nearby party members based on the quantity of Fanfare points she accumulates.
Furina’s Constellations (C1 to C6):
Furina’s constellations promise to further elevate her gameplay. Let’s take a closer look at these constellations:
C1: Furina gains 150 Fanfare points after using her Elemental Burst. Additionally, this constellation increases the Fanfare limit by 150 points.
C2: After using her Elemental Skill, Furina’s Normal Attacks, Charged Attacks, and Plunging Attacks are infused with Hydro, and her DMG receives a boost equal to 15% of her Max HP. Depending on her alignment, Ousia or Pneuma, she gains additional buffs and effects, enhancing her versatility.
C3: This constellation increases Furina’s Elemental Skill level by 3, enhancing her Hydro DMG-dealing capabilities.
C4: When the Salon Members strike an opponent or the Singers of the Streams restore HP to the active character, Furina regains 4 Energy. This effect triggers once every 5 seconds, ensuring consistent Energy recovery.
C5: Further bolstering Furina’s Elemental Burst, this constellation increases its level by 3, making it even more potent in battle.
C6: At the highest constellation level, Furina’s Fanfare gain rate from nearby characters’ HP fluctuations receives a significant boost of 200%. Additionally, her Max HP increases by 0.4% for each extra Fanfare point, potentially leading to a remarkable 140% increase in Max HP.
Furina’s Talent Passives:
Furina’s talent passives complement her role as a unique Hydro character in Genshin Impact:
- Endless Waltz: When a party member other than Furina is healed to the point of overflow, she will heal a nearby party member for 2% of their Max HP every 2 seconds within the next 4 seconds, demonstrating her supportive capabilities.
- Unheard Confession: This passive scales with Furina’s Max HP, providing a 0.7% increase in Salon Member DMG for every 1,000 points of her Max HP, up to a maximum of 28%. It also decreases the active character healing interval of the Singers of the Streams by 0.4% for every 1,000 points of her Max HP, up to a maximum of 16%.
- The Sea is My Stage: This passive reduces the Xenochromatic Fontemer Aberrant ability’s cooldown by an impressive 30%, enhancing Furina’s overall utility in a team.
As we eagerly anticipate Furina’s arrival in Genshin Impact 4.2, these leaks offer a tantalizing preview of her unique abilities and playstyle. With her dual Arkhe alignments, versatile Elemental Skill, and powerful constellations, Furina is shaping up to be a compelling addition to any Genshin Impact team. However, it’s important to keep in mind that this information is based on leaks and may be subject to change in the final release. Stay tuned for more updates and gameplay reveals as we draw closer to the official release of Furina in Genshin Impact!
