Just before the much-anticipated launch of Version 4.2, the rugged administrator of the Fortress of Meropide, Wriothesley, received his first Genshin Impact banner, in Phase 2 of Version 4.1! While Chief Justice Neuvillette made his appearance in the opening Acts of Fontaine Archon Quest, Wriothesley took centre stage in Version 4.1's introduction of the Fortress of Meropide.

Genshin players are eagerly anticipating Wriothesley's banner debut after discovering an endearing detail in his idle animation, along with leaks that unveil his formidable ability kit.

For those eager to begin gathering his Ascension and Talent Materials in anticipation of his banner release, we have you covered with our comprehensive Wriothesley pre-farming guide here!

Wriothesley release date

As revealed in the recent Genshin Impact Version 4.1 Livestream, Wriothesley will be a 5-star Cryo Catalyst unit, with gameplay centred around punching his opponents to the curb.

You'll have the opportunity to welcome the "intimidating yet surprisingly gentle" Wriothesley to your roster in Version 4.1 Phase 2. If there are no unprecedented deals, Version 4.1 Phase 2 should be released on 17 October 2023.

Wriothelsey Ascension materials

With the launch of Version 4.1, all of Wriothelsey's materials have been unlocked. There are plenty of materials you can get a head start on, so let's get right to it!

Shivada Lazurite

As is customary for the Cryo units of Genshin Impact, Wriothesley requires Shivada Lazurite crystals for ascension.

You can obtain Shivada Lazurite crystals by defeating Genshin Impact bosses such as the Cryo Regisvine, Cryo Hypostasis, or the Icewind Suite (Coppelius). Additionally, you can convert crystals of other elements into Cryo crystals using the Crafting Table and some Dust of Azoth.
