The Hydro Traveler release date is on the horizon.

No, HoYoverse has yet to reveal the Hydro Travler release date. However, with Fontaine being released in version 4.0, it is safe to assume that the Hydro Traveler kit will make its debut alongside this update. 

As always, we’ll be sure to update this section as soon as more information is revealed in the weeks and months ahead.

Elemental Skill: Aquacrest Saber

Traveler unleashes a torrent that can cleanse the world.

  • Press: Sends a Torrent Surge forward that will deal Hydro DMG to opponents it comes into contact with.
  • Hold: Enter Aiming Mode and constantly fire off Dewdrops in the direction in which you are aiming that will deal Hydro DMG to opponents they hit. When the skill ends, it will send a Torrent Surge forward that will deal Hydro DMG to opponents it comes into contact with.

Suffusion: When the Traveler’s HP is higher than 50%, they will continuously lose HP and cause Dewdrop DMG to increase based on their HP. 

Fundamental Force – Pneuma: At certain intervals, after using Torrent Surge, this skill will unleash a Spiritbreath Thorn that pierces opponents, dealing Pneuma-aligned Hydro DMG.

Elemental Burst: Rising Waters

Traveler unleashes a slow-moving floating bubble that deals continuous Hydro DMG to nearby opponents. 

Spotless Waters: After the Dewdrop fired by the Hold Mode of the Aquacrest Saber hits an opponent, a Sourcewater Droplet will be generated near to the Traveler. If the Traveler picks it up, they will restore 7% HP.1 Droplet can be created this way every second, and each use of Aquacrest Saber can create 4 Droplets at most.

Clear Waters: If HP has been consumed via Suffusion while using the Hold Mode Aquacrest Saber, the Torrent Surge at the skill’s end will deal Bonus DMG equal to 45% of the total HP the Traveler has consumed in this skill use via Suffusion. The maximum DMG Bonus that can be gained this way is 5,000.
