Pneumosia Energy and Indemnitium

Genshin - Fontaine
Pneumosia Energy is comprised of both Pneuma and Ousia—two opposing energies utilized by residents of Fontaine as a source of sustainable energy called Indemnitium, to power up the nation, and all the Clockwork Meka!

Fusing these two energies together creates a Balanced energy that activates certain mechanisms in Fontaine—or "Annihilate" machine beings.

What are Pneuma and Ousia?

Arkhe System

Genshin - Fontaine
The Arkhe System refers to the inherent Pneumosia alignment of characters from Fontaine. This can help them interact with the Pneumosia Energy all over Fontaine and is separate from each Fontainian character's Vision!

Clockwork Meka

Clockwork Meka Previews

Clockwork Meka are machine beings that are primarily powered by Pneuma-Ousia Annihilation Reaction energy blocks invented by Alain Guillotin, founder of the Fontaine Research Institute.

These machine beings perform a number of functions, such as patrolling, defense, underwater exploration, among others. Be careful though, as not all Clockwork Meka are friendly!

Can Clockwork Mekas Operate Outside Fontaine?

Clockwork Mekas can still function even outside Fontaine, but can only do so through pre-prepared energy blocks that contain Pneumosia Energy!

Clockwork Meka Enemy Guide


Genshin - Melusine

Melusines are a race of beings characterized by their long and protruding ears, and whose place of residence is primarily in Beryl Region.

From the Ancient Colors World Quest, it was also revealed that their progenitor is Elynas, a felled-dragon whose blood had polluted the rivers of Fontaine for years!

Who are the Melusines?

Fountain of Lucine

Genshin - Fountain of Lucine
The Fountain of Lucine serves as the reward system in Fontaine where you can exchange collected Hydro Sigils with valuable items!

This system can be unlocked as soon as you reach Fontaine, but we recommend progressing through the region's Archon Quest: Act 1 for a better experience as it will point you to the fountain's location!

How to Unlock Fountain of Lucine

Fontaine Aquabus

Genshin - Fontaine Aquabus
Aquabuses are vehicles that you use to traverse the waterways that connect the Court of Fontaine and to other areas such as the Romaritime Harbor, Fountain of Lucine, and Opera Eclese.
