How to Get the Sword of Narzissenkreuz in Genshin Impact: A Comprehensive Guide
The recent Genshin Impact 4.2 update has introduced a myriad of exciting content for players, including the Sword of Narzissenkreuz. This 4-star weapon possesses unique properties, allowing characters to wield both Pneuma and Ousia arkhe alignments against their enemies. To acquire this powerful sword, players must embark on a journey through the Narzissenkreuz questline, which culminates in the world quest "In the Wake of Narcissus: Act IV - Rowboat's Wake."
Questline Prerequisites to Obtain the Sword of Narzissenkreuz
Before diving into the final quest, players need to complete a series of pre-requisite quests in the following order:
Ann of the Narzissenkreuz
The Final Question
Only after completing these quests will the "In the Wake of Narcissus" quest become available on the menu, leading players to the showdown in the Narzissenkreuz Ordo.
Obtaining Refinement Materials
The Sword of Narzissenkreuz's power can be enhanced through refinement using the Drained Conch Cups. These cups are found in various locations across the game world:
Location 1: Inside a room in the Institute of Natural Philosophy's Submerged Ruins: Central Quartier level.
Location 2: Within a chest located inside The Narzissenkreuz Ordo.
Location 3: Inside a chest in Bravais' Hidden Study. An Arkhium Lumenite is required to access the hidden room.
Location 4: Within a chest in a cave north of Lock Urania. This area can only be accessed after completing the world quest "The Wild Fairy of Erinnyes."
Players should gather these Drained Conch Cups and then teleport to the Annapausis west teleport waypoint. Heading west towards the small fountain, players can exchange the Drained Conch Cups for Surging Sacred Chalices, which serve as refinement materials for the Sword of Narzissenkreuz.
Changing Arkhe Alignment
What sets the Sword of Narzissenkreuz apart is its ability to change between Pneuma and Ousia alignments. To accomplish this, players must visit the Annapausis west waypoint, swim downwards, and glide towards a small fountain on the west end of the area. Interacting with the fountain provides the option to convert the sword's Arkhe alignment. This process can be repeated whenever players wish to switch between Pneuma and Ousia attacks.
