Wuthering Waves 1.1 Patch Notes

New Region

To the southeast sea of Jinzhou lies a secluded haven known as Mt. Firmament. Legend has it that this is the ancestral land of Jinzhou’s early settlers, where the Sentinel Jué once descended. However, shrouded in perpetual mist, Mt. Firmament remains veiled from the world. There are even whispers that time itself moves abnormally there, almost as if it is suspended in its flow.

These mysterious mountains are where the Guardian of Jinzhou Jue has escaped to and where Jinhsi is chasing him down for their fated showdown. These snow-capped mountains feature a completely different biome from what we’re used to and there’s going to be snow everywhere. Prepare to explore a brand new area of Wuthering Waves if you’re already done exploring the main regions of Jinzhou.

New Characters

The two new characters being introduced in Wuthering Waves 1.1 are the 5-star resonators Jinhsi (Spectro) and Changli (Fusion). They will each get their respective 5-star banners during the event.

Jinhsi is the current Magistrate of Jinzhou and we have already met her during the events of the main story during Version 1.0. She is currently on a quest to seek Jue and we will potentially aid her during this quest. She is a powerful 5-star Resonator with some of the best DPS potential in the game. Her weapon of choice is a broadblade. Check out our Jinhsi guide for a full breakdown of her skills.

Changli, on the other hand, is a more mysterious figure that we know much less about. However, we do know that she is extremely loyal to Jinhsi and a master tactician as well as a powerful fighter in her own right. Changli also wields a Sword. Read our Changli guide for a full breakdown of her abilities.

New Weapons

We will be getting two brand new 5-star weapons during Wuthering Waves Version 1.1.

Ages of Harvest

This 5-star Broadblade is Jinhsi’s Signature Weapon and it will be featured on a 5-star weapon banner alongside her during Wuthering Waves 1.1. It has an ATK main stat and a Crit Rate substat. The weapon effect is as follows:

Gain 12% additional DMG Bonus for all Attributes. The wielder is bestowed with divine blessings and gains one stack of Blessing of Ages for each Basic Attack strike, for up to four stacks, which is removed when the wielder leaves the field. At four stacks of Blessing of Ages or more, the wielder consumes all stacks of Blessing of Ages when casting the next Resonance Skill, with its DMG increased by 48% for 2.5s. This can be triggered one time every 6s.

Burning Brilliance

Next up we have Changli’s Signature weapon, the 5-star weapon. However, we don’t know the details about this weapon as of yet. We’ll update this guide once the weapon details become available.

New Echoes and Echo Skills

Wuthering Waves 1.1 adds a total of seven new Echoes to expand the Data Bank with Sentinel Jue being a 4-cost Calamity Echo.

Sentinel Jue4Summon Jue to attack the enemies, dealing Spectro DMG. You can perform Resonance Skill to deal
sustained Spectro DMG to the enemies over time.

These echoes represent their region fairly well with the Clang Bangs being frozen blocks of ice and the Glacio Dreadmane being an alternate version of the Havoc Dreadmane. For some reason, the Dwarf Cassowaries are just rooster TDs.
