The world of Teyvat continues to expand with every update to Genshin Impact, and the 4.0 version brings forth the enigmatic Icewind Suite boss battle. This new addition introduces a captivating dance between two distinct variants – the Dirge of Coppelia and the Nemesis of Coppelius. With different mechanics, moves, and rewards, it's crucial for Travelers to understand the intricacies of this mesmerizing battle.

Choosing which version of the boss to fight

Located near the Fountain of Lucine in the picturesque Fontaine region, the Icewind Suite boss battle isn't a straightforward confrontation. To initiate the dance, players must converse with Maillardet, an attentive NPC overseeing the mechanical performance. This encounter presents a choice: will you face the Dirge of Coppelia or take on the challenge of the Nemesis of Coppelius? Each variant offers unique drops, making this choice vital for your character progression.

Mechanics and Strategies

Both versions of the Icewind Suite boss fight possess their unique set of mechanics and attacks. It's essential to compose your team strategically to counter their moves effectively. These bosses employ Cryo and Anemo elements, suggesting that your team composition should avoid characters susceptible to these elements.

For the Dirge of Coppelia, a mono-Pyro team is recommended. Combining characters like Lyney, Bennett, and Xiangling can create an efficient synergy to tackle this variant. On the other hand, the Nemesis of Coppelius can be defeated with a team that includes strong shield bearers and those capable of dealing substantial damage once the shield is down. Characters like Zhongli and Xingqiu can play a pivotal role in this approach.

Both bosses deliver devastating arena-wide attacks that demand cautious maneuvering. Coppelia summons whirlwinds, while Coppelius blankets the area in damaging frost. Playing defensively during these phases is advised, but if you're nearing victory, a strategic dash to deliver a final blow can render these attacks ineffective.


The Icewind Suite rewards Travelers with materials required for character ascension and progression. Dirge of Coppelia drops the Artificed Spare Clockwork Component — Coppelia, while Nemesis of Coppelius grants the Artificed Spare Clockwork Component — Coppelius. Additionally, expect to acquire Gladiator's Finale and Wanderer's Troupe artifacts, along with Vayuda Turquoise and Shivada Jade jewel pieces based on the boss variant you've chosen.

Both the Dirge of Coppelia and the Nemesis of Coppelius dances present an engaging challenge and offer alluring rewards. Careful consideration of your team composition, tactics, and desired drops will pave the way for success in this entrancing boss battle. As you delve deeper into the world of Genshin Impact 4.0, remember that victory in the dance of elements requires strategy, adaptability, and a touch of finesse.
