Genshin Impact – How to Obtain the Fleuve Cendre Ferryman Weapon

Fontaine’s debut in Genshin Impact has introduced a wealth of fresh in-game content for players to explore and has ushered in a wave of exciting features, including the Fleuve Cendre Ferryman.

The Fleuve Cendre Ferryman is one of Fontaine’s free four-star weapons that is only obtainable through fishing. Equipping this sword increases one’s energy recharge and elemental skill crit rate, making it perfect for characters such as Xingqiu and Layla.

While obtaining it is free and requires zero primogems, getting the Fleuve Cendre Ferryman is not as easy as it may appear. Here’s how to obtain the Fleuve Cendre Ferryman in Genshin Impact and how to refine it.

How to Get the Fleuve Cendre Ferryman in Genshin Impact

Collecting weapons in Genshin Impact can become quite expensive, given that most of them can only be acquired through the wish banner. And for casual and free-to-play players, choosing free or craftable weapons often proves to be the wisest decision. This way, they can instead allocate their primogems to character banners in order to quickly form the ideal team for exploration and Spiral Abyss. Fortunately, the Fleuve Cendre Ferryman is one of them.

As for this weapon, there is only one way to obtain it, and fishing plays a vital role in it.

Unlock Fishing

Obtaining the Fleuve Cendre Ferryman will be impossible without earning the ability to fish. For players who haven’t unlocked it yet, they must first complete the ‘Exploding Population’ quest, which becomes available at Adventure Rank 28.

Collect Fish in Fontaine’s Fishing Locations

Fontaine has many fishing spots to choose from, as seen in the picture below. Simply head towards any of these locations and obtain the right species.

  • Using the right bait, make your way towards any of these locations and collect the following requirements:
  • 4 Maintenance Mek: Platinum Collection
  • 10 Rippling Heartfeather Bass
  • 10 Blazing Hearfeather Bass
  • 12 Streaming Axe Marlin

Go to the Fontaine Fishing Association

After finally obtaining all the required materials, players must head towards the Fontaine Fishing Association and search for Delaroche, the Fontaine Angler. They can use either of the two teleport waypoints nearby to reach her.

For those who haven’t unlocked most of the teleport waypoints in Fontaine, there’s an alternative approach. They can begin their journey by boarding the first available aquabus upon arriving in Genshin’s newest region. This aquabus then will bring players to a brand-new area called the Court of Fontaine. Upon reaching this location, head to the third floor and board the Navia Line. When the aquabus approaches a body of water, simply jump off and walk toward the Fontaine Angler.

Interacting with her will display a short list of materials and equipment available in exchange for the required fish species. Each player can only purchase one Fleuve Cendre Ferryman, and unlike typical weapons, this Fontaine Sword follows a unique refinement process.

How to Refine Fleuve Cendre Ferryman in Genshin Impact

For players that are aiming to further enhance their weapon, refining it shall be their next step. Doing so will require a special refinement material called the “Martens’ Omni-Fix”.

  • Listed down below are the requirements needed:
  • 2 Maintenance Mek: Platinum Collection
  • 5 Rippling Heartfeather Bass
  • 5 Blazing Heartfeather Bass

Fishing in Genshin Impact has received mixed criticism from its players with some finding it a rather tedious task. But thanks to it, players who find themselves short on primogems can opt for a free, yet viable option like the Fleuve Cendre Ferryman for their favorite sword character.

After all, this is a godsend for F2P players, offering them a reliable alternative that can rival the performance of other four-star weapons. In fact, this free-to-play pipe sword is a must-have for most sword-wielding who heavily rely on energy recharge and elemental skills such as Lynette, Layla, Kaeya, Albedo, Xingqiu, Hydro Main Character and more.

Genshin Impact is free-to-play now on the PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and iOS and Android devices.
