Arlecchino Drip Marketing

Arlecchino was first revealed as a 5-star Pyro Polearm character on March 11, 2024, through the official Genshin Impact X account. She is known as the “The Knave,” the Head of the House of Hearth, and the 4th Fatui Harbinger in position.

Arlecchino will be a playable character on Genshin Impact’s version 4.6 update. The drip market differed between the EN Genshin Impact X account and the JP Genshin Impact account, where the JP X account revealed Arlecchino’s killer heels.

Arlecchino Release Date

Arlecchino will be released on April 24, 2024, following the end of version 4.5, during the first phase of version 4.6.

Arlecchino Story

The Hotel Bouffes d’ete, situated in the Vasari Passage, is a lovely building with clean walls and sparkling windows, and well-mannered, well-groomed children frequent it every day.

Unlike other mansions of comparable beauty in the Court of Fontaine, the registered owner of this property does not live on-site. Indeed, nearby residents have not even heard of her.

The signature on the relevant documentation is but a false identity – the real power lies with someone else.

If one could hear the children whisper at night behind the Hotel’s closed gates, one would hear this appellation: “Father.”

When speaking of “Father,” some faces turn worshipful, some hearts are seized with fear, and still others look inscrutable, torn- but their tone always becomes one of respect.

These children are part of the organization known as the House of the Hearth. They belong to the Fatui.

This place is home to orphans the world over, and the luxurious Hotel is but one of the House’s faces.

As for this “Father,” the master of the House, she is none other than The Knave, Arlecchino, presently Fourth of the Fatui Harbingers.

The Fatui- and this Harbinger – enjoy a mixed reputation. But to most of these children, “Father” is the most important figure in their Lives.

“It is only because ‘Father’ is here that this place is truly like a ‘home.'”

Arlecchino Voiceover

I am The Knave, Arlecchino, Fourth of the Fatui Harbingers. The children of the House of the Hearth call me “Father.” I do hope our partnership proves to be a pleasant one, although I would imagine that should be fairly easy. After all, there’s no cause for contention between us at the moment… wouldn’t you agree?

“Flames course through my body like blood”… This may be nothing but a figure of speech to some. But for me, it’s the harsh reality of my existence.

Time to retire for the night. Oh? “Can’t sleep,” you say? Well, I’m afraid you’ll have to figure something out for yourself. I have a certain suspicion my solution won’t be to your liking

Arlecchino Hearsay

Our ideals are not entirely aligned. If we are to work together, we must be willing to compromise. To that end, I’m willing to share certain secrets with you. Information that I choose not to reveal, however, is best left unexplored… for your own good, of course.

In my free time, I enjoy observing insects in the forest. The dynamics between them are fascinating – the way they hunt for food, compete with each other, even cooperate… Those that seem formidable aren’t always the ones that make it until the end, and a single error can prove fatal. I observe their struggle as they near death, and slowly commit the image of their suffering to memory, much like I do for those that fall by my own hand.

Masque of the Red Death
When Arlecchino has a Bond of Life equal to or greater than 30% of her Max HP, she will enter the “Masque of the Red Death” state:

Her Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks will be converted to deal Pyro DMG. This cannot be overridden.

When in the “Masque of the Red Death” state, Arlecchino’s Normal Attacks will deal extra DMG to opponents on hit that scales off her ATK multiplied by a certain ratio of her current Bond of Life percentage. This will consume 7.5% of said current Bond of Life. Her Bond of Life can be consumed this way every 0.03s. When her Bond of Life is consumed in this manner, All is Ash’s CD will decrease by 0.8s.

Blood-Debt Directive

  • Lasts 30s. Every 5s, it will deal 1 instance of Pyro DMG to the opponent. Max 2 instances. This DMG will be considered Elemental Skill DMG.
  • When Arlecchino uses a Charged Attack or her Elemental Burst, Balemoon Rising, she will absorb and clear nearby Blood-Debt Directives. Each Directive absorbed grants her a Bond of Life worth 65% of her Max HP.
  • The maximum value of the Bond of Life she can be granted through Blood-Debt Directives within 35s after using her Elemental Skill is 145% of her Max HP. Using the Elemental Skill again during this duration will restart the count on duration and the limit on the value of Bond of Life she may gain from Blood-Debt Directives.
