Attack Mechanics

  • Neuvillette can move while charging/firing CA Equitable Judgement - Video - chronopolize
  • CA Equitable Judgement can be canceled with Dash, Jump, Skill, and Burst - Video - lunaflaw
  • Neuvillette can somewhat move up slopes during CA Equitable Judgement - Video - lunaflaw
    • He can travel over some bodies of water and down some slopes - Video - caramielle.
  • CA Equitable Judgement startup can be shortened by releasing Attack at the right time - Video - bobrokrot
  • CA absorption in front is approximately the range of his CA. The range from the back is approximately half of the range from the front - Video - caramielle.

  • Institute tiles to metres conversion factor: 1.25 (4 tiles = 5 meters )
  • Neuvillette's Sourcewater Droplet absorption range is at least 2 different overlapping regions:
      1. A cone fixed to the camera (marked by the far away blue line while floating)
      1. A narrow rectangular strip with its long end toward the direction Neuvillette is facing.
        This is an approximate sketch:

        Length unit is width of tiles found in Fontaine Institute buildings.
        Specifically, all evidence was gathered at the initial arena of the Experimental Field Generator in the World Quest "Fontaine Research Institute, Stagnating in the Rubble", located on one of the biggest floating cubes in Fontaine. The tile grid is conveniently large.

Skill Mechanics

  • Particle Generation: 4 - Video - clevernt
  • Spiritbreath Thorn has hitlag, and can be used to Dragonstrike - Video - f99shi
  • Neuvillette can create a maximum of 12 Sourcewater Droplets at a time - Video - shampoobrain
  • Sourcewater Droplets remain even after Neuvillette dies - Video - caramielle.
  • You only see your own Sourcewater Droplets in Co-Op. This means that your Neuvillette cannot interact with any Sourcewater Droplets formed by your co-op partner
    • Anemo characters with CC abilities can interact with Sourcewater Droplets dropped by other party's Neuvillette in co-op, even though the Droplets are not visible

Burst Mechanics

  • Droplets generated by Burst will always spawn a distance away in front of him, at the same elevation as he is. as a result they can go out of bounds and hover mid air - Video 1, Video 2 - caramielle.

Ascension Mechanics

  • Neuvillette himself is qualified for gaining stacks - Video - starlighthorizon
  • The duration of stacks of the same type reaction can be refreshed by triggering the same reaction - Video - starlighthorizon
  • Stacks can only be gain on reactions triggered on enemies. Reactions on gadgets, weapons, monster weapons, and self don't count - Video - f99shi
  • Teammates proccing reactions from off field still triggers A1 - Video - f99shi

Constellation Mechanics

    • Jean: Can pull, but not yeet, with hE
    • Faruzan: Can pull with Pressurized Collapse (E CA)
    • Sucrose: Can pull with E. Only initial Q hit pulls

    • Lynette: C1 vortex can pull
    • AMC: hE and Q both pull
    • Venti: No
    • (Bonus) Viridescent Hunt: No
    • Video - itslin and nociii
  • CA Equitable Judgement and Frozen interactions:
    • CA doesn't get cancelled immediately by getting frozen. Unless it is a whopper flower who does it.
    • The charge bar can still be consumed and charged while being frozen, but only for a short time.
    • In the right timing, neuv can still shoot his beam while being frozen.
    • While frozen, you can still control where he is looking
