↖ Complete Reputation Quests
By finishing reputation quests and bounties in different regions, you can unlock various rewards, including name cards, blueprints, and unique wings. Focus on maximizing the reputation of the regions you haven't fully explored yet to catch up before Fontaine arrives.
↖ Prioritize Building Characters
Identify that one character you've been meaning to build but haven't gotten around to yet. Use your resin to focus on leveling up that specific character before Fontaine is released. This way, you won't get distracted by the new characters and can ensure your neglected character is ready for action.
↖ Prepare Backup Artifacts
Although you may not have the best artifacts for the upcoming Fontaine characters, having spare artifacts as a backup can be beneficial, especially during the initial stages of the new region when all artifact domains may not be accessible. Keep spare artifacts that can be used temporarily until you acquire better ones.
↖ Stock Up on Food
If you tend to rely less on healers and live on the edge, it's essential to build up your food inventory. A well-stocked inventory will come in handy in Fontaine, where you might find yourself exploring without frequent access to healing sources.
↖ Farm Ores from Sumaru and Other Regions
Consider gathering ores from regions you won't be visiting frequently after Fontaine's release. Since you might not return to Sumaru for a while, farm Sumaru ores and other region-specific ores to ensure you have enough resources for character and weapon upgrades.
↖ Farm Ley Lines for Experience Books
Experience books are crucial for leveling up characters, so take the opportunity to farm Ley Lines for more experience books. This will help you ensure you have a good supply of experience books for leveling up your new Fontaine characters.
↖ Save Primogems
If you haven't been spending your Primogems, it's not too late to start saving. With approximately six weeks before new Fontaine characters are released, participate in daily events, complete exploration objectives, and save up your Primogems for future wishes and banners.
↖ Consider Saving for the Hydro Archon
Archons are often game-changing characters, so it's worth considering saving Primogems for the Hydro Archon. If you're unsure which character to pull for, investing in an Archon is generally a safe choice.
↖ Explore Sumaru's Desert
Before the release of Fontaine, take the time to explore Sumaru's Desert thoroughly. While it may not be necessary for completionists or players deeply invested in Sumaru, exploring the desert can add to the overall experience and provide additional content to enjoy.
↖ Catch Up on Archon Quests
To heighten the excitement for the new region, make sure you are up to date with the Archon Quests. Being caught up on the main story will allow you to dive straight into the new Archon Quests and fully immerse yourself in the new region's storyline.
Clear World Quest Backlog:
World quests can accumulate over time, leading to a growing backlog. To avoid feeling overwhelmed when Fontaine arrives, dedicate some time to clear out as many world quests as possible. This will prevent any quest-related roadblocks in the new region's content.
↖ Complete Character Story Quests
Certain character story quests can be prerequisites for progressing in the game. To prevent any quest-related restrictions in Fontaine, complete any outstanding character story quests you may have been putting off.
↖ Farm Weekly Bosses for Dream Solvents
Dream solvent is valuable items that allow you to convert boss drops you don't need into the ones you currently require. Since talent leveling beyond level six often requires specific boss drops, stock up on dream solvents by defeating weekly bosses. This will help you level up your new Fontaine characters' talents.
↖ Prepare Spare Artifacts for the Traveler
Have spare artifacts ready for the Traveler's use. A recommended setup is a combination of two-piece Heart of Depth and two-piece Gladiator's Finale. This way, you'll be prepared in case the Traveler becomes a required character during certain quests or events.
↖ Build Stamina Reserves
As Fontaine is expected to be a vast region, having an ample amount of stamina will be beneficial for exploration. Aim to increase your stamina reserves by regularly consuming stamina-boosting food and completing activities that reward stamina experience.
↖ Grind Battle Pass and Fragile Resin Activities
If you plan to farm Fontaine domains right after the update, consider grinding activities that reward Battle Pass points and Fragile Resin. Accumulating these resources will allow you to maximize your farming efficiency in the new region.
↖ Ensure Teapot Rank 8 or Above
Upgrade your Serenitea Pot to at least rank 8 before Fontaine's release. This will grant you access to additional benefits, including more realm currency, increased resin capacity, and increased purchase limits from the teapot shop. Take advantage of the teapot's passive income feature to accumulate a substantial amount of realm currency before the update.
↖ Prepare for the Genshin Impact 4.0 Update
As Genshin Impact 4.0 will bring major updates to the game, take some time to familiarize yourself with the changes and plan how you will adapt your gameplay style. This is especially important for mobile players who may need to adjust their strategies due to new features like item creation.
↖ Gather Crystal Cores
Crystal cores are essential for crafting items like potions and condensed resin. To ensure you have a fully stocked inventory when Fontaine releases, spend some time gathering crystal cores. This will ensure you have all the necessary resources at your disposal.
↖ Obtain Elemental Ascension Materials with Stardust
Use your Stardust at Paimon's Bargains or time-locked event shops to acquire Starglitter Exchange Dust. This dust can be used to convert surplus ascension materials into the ones you currently need, allowing you to obtain specific elemental ascension materials quickly.
↖ Stock Up on Mystic Enhancement Ore
Don't overlook your weapons while focusing on character building. Stock up on Mystic Enhancement Ore, which can be obtained through various means like Battle Pass chests, Paimon's Bargains, and the teapot shop. This will ensure you have enough resources to level up your weapons.
↖ Hone Your TCG Skills
Take the time to play against NPCs in the game's trading card game, Triple Triad, to improve your skills. With new NPCs in Fontaine ready to challenge you, having a good grasp of the game mechanics will help you avoid feeling overwhelmed by the number of opponents seeking a card battle.
↖ Prepare Condensed Resin
If you plan to start farming new Fontaine domains immediately after the update, make sure to have some condensed resin ready. Condensed resin allows you to make more efficient use of your time by utilizing both normal resin and condensed resin simultaneously.
↖ Stay Excited and Engaged
Lastly, remember to stay excited and engaged with the upcoming release of Fontaine. Keep up with news, community discussions, and updates to fuel your anticipation. Share your excitement with fellow players and discuss your expectations for the new region. The more engaged you are, the more enjoyable the experience will be when Fontaine finally arrives.
By following these 24 tips and tricks, you'll be well-prepared to make the most of Genshin Impact 4.0 and the introduction of the Fontaine region. Whether it's completing quests, optimizing your character and weapon builds, or gathering essential resources, these preparations will help you embark on your Fontaine adventure smoothly. Get ready to explore the new region, meet new characters, and uncover exciting quests and treasures. Enjoy your journey through Fontaine in Genshin Impact!
