What Are the Local Legends in Genshin Impact?
The Local Legends are a series of special enemies with higher HP thresholds than most regular foes. They’re scattered around the Fontaine region with little to no information regarding them. They’re commonly referred to as “Legends” in their respective achievements, even though the game never goes out of its way to explain their existence. They serve as optional challenges to the player, providing small rewards as the challenge itself is the main course here.
How to Find and Defeat All Local Legends in Fontaine
As of 4.1, there are 11 Local Legends to be found in the region. New patches might add more of those periodically, and you can meet them as soon as you first step into Fontaine. While most of them are hidden underwater, the ones on the surface are some of the most formidable opponents in the game. They all grant achievements upon defeat.
1 – Iron Viscont Fontaine Local Legend
This Fontaine local legend search will begin on the surface, too. Head to the boiling water lake next to the Statue of the Seven and solve its Hydro Cores puzzle. A water portal will open and take you to an underwater cavern.
Head to the northeast area of the cave and blow the slime barrels to reveal Hydro Cores. Use them twice on two of the three pedestals scattered around the area to put out the torches next to them. Put the third torch out manually (with either Cryo or Hydro), and the Hydro totem will open itself.
Activate the totem, and the area will be flooded. The boss will immediately appear, so grab a crab’s power and get ready to face it! Use the crab’s hold Skill to reflect the fish it throws at you, and don’t waste time attacking his shield when it puts it up. It goes down in just a few seconds and you can continue your assault.
You get the Iron Viscont achievement for beating it, as well as some Treasures in the new path you just unlocked ahead of you in the cave.
2 – Fading Veteran
The Fading Veteran Local Legend is found in one of the lower Beryl Region underground teleports. Swim down to the undersea cave next to the wreckages until you find a giant seal. Borrow another seal’s power to face it. It can turn invisible, so you gotta see where the attacks are coming from and retaliate with your sonar skill. If you hit it while it’s invisible, it takes extra damage and gets stunned for a while.
If you pay enough attention, you can see it just like you can see the invisible Fatui Assassins, so be patient, and you’ll eventually bring it down. You get the Fading Veteran achievement for defeating it.
3 – Fairy Twin Knights Fontaine Local Legend
Angelica and Medoro can be found next to the Talent Domain. Your weapon of choice will be the stingray’s talons. The whole fight is based around dodging their own waves and waiting for a specific attack where they create a blue tether between them. Use the ray’s skill to cut it (just like you cut underwater vines) and deal big damage to them.
They’ll just repeat the same attacks after being hit, so just keep on dodging and go for the nearby fish if you happen to get hurt. You get the The Fairy Twin Knights achievement for defeating them. If your character falls in battle, you also achieve The White Path Between Two Rivers.
4 – Ocean Circuit Judge Fontaine Local Legend
Another giant crab is going to the pan. This Fontaine Local Legend next to the Talent Domain but in the opposite direction. You’ll immediately see it guarding a treasure chest. Use a crab’s power and prepare for the same type of battle you just had with the Iron Viscont, including the shield phases. You get the Ocean Circuit Judge achievement for bringing this crab to the pan.
5 – Dobharcu, Lord of The Hidden Fontaine Local Legend
This Fontaine Local Legend is in the waters of the Chemin de L’Espoir, next to the Annapausis area. It’s the same as the Fading Veteran, so you should be having an easier time beating this one up. You get the Dobharcu, Lord of the Hidden achievement for defeating it.
6 – Swords of the Gorge Fontaine Local Legend
Another double stingray boss battle, located next to the Thalatta Submarine Canyon waypoint. As long as you can reliably break their tethers, it would be best if you defeated Cortana and Mugleis easily. As usual, you get the Swords of the Gorge achievement for defeating them.
7 – Ninianne of the Lake Fontaine Local Legend
This local legend is located on the beaches north of Elynas. This is a regular boss battle, so bring your best teams to it. Ninianne has a huge HP pool, so use a few food buffs and have a good sustainer for this lengthy fight. Hyperbloom/Burgeon comps can be especially effective here as you don’t need to apply Hydro first, as the boss is always imbued with it. Your reward is the Ninianne of the Lake achievement.
8 – Vivianne of the Lake Fontaine Local Legend
Ninianne’s older sister, Vivianne, is even more aggressive than the previous challenge. The same team you just used might be just as effective here, so keep your heals/shields up, and eventually, you’ll shed through her 3 million HP threshold. The Vivianne of the Lake achievement is your reward for besting her.
9 – Yseult Fontaine Local Legend
The only humanoid opponent in this list is found quite next to Vivianne in Mont Esus East. Fatui Operatives are tough opponents with ferocious attacks and quick teleports, not to mention the heavy bleed you get if the red blast attack hits you. Keep your shields/heals up at all times and try to stun lock her to get the Yseult achievement.
After beating Yseult, light up all nearby torches to reveal an extra chest.
10 – Luachra The Brilliant Fontaine Local Legend
Now let’s get back to deep waters in front of the Fortress of Meropide. Luachra will be waiting for you here, so grab a nearby Jellyfish’s power to face it. Throw the water bomb and detonate it whenever you see it glowing purple, which happens when it’s charging its bubbles attack, or when it’s lunging at you. Its single bubble attack doesn’t leave it vulnerable, but you can easily get the Luachra the Brilliant achievement regardless.
11 – Automated Supercomputing Field Generator Fontaine Local Legend
The final legend is found at the edges of the Central Laboratory Ruins. It starts off with a Geo shield, and Zhongli is the best candidate to break it if you have him. But any other Geo character will also do fine, especially if they’re a Greatsword user. As long as you dodge the constant holes appearing beneath you, you should be fine in this battle, which earns you the Automated Supercomputing Field Generator title.
The local legends are optional challenges and provide no other external rewards upon their defeat. You can rematch them anytime you want by approaching them again, but unless you’re looking for a tough challenge, there’s no real point in doing it. But make sure to beat them at least once to claim their chests for those sweet Hydro Sigils you can use in the Fountain of Lucine. That’s all you need to know about the Fontaine Local Legends!
