For the other entities known as "Oceanids", see Lochfolk.

Rhodeia of Loch, also known as Voice of the Water, is the Oceanid of Qingce. She is a Normal Boss in the Liyue region, in the middle of the furthest lake east to Qingce Village.

She cannot be attacked directly. Instead, she will create animals made from water to attack players. Defeating them will cause the Oceanid to automatically lose her health.

When defeated, the player must consume 40 Original Resin to claim her drops, which consists of Artifacts and Character Ascension Material for Characters using the Hydro element.

Rhodeia is a Lochfolk, who came from the Hydro nation, Fontaine, after the passing of the previous Hydro Archon. The Oceanids at large do not agree with the plans and ideals of the current Hydro Archon, and so refuse to acknowledge or support her.

Description

A life-form created from condensed Hydro elements of incredible purity.
Often attached to bodies of water. It is said that as water bodies becomes purer, the Hydro elements within grow more abundant, causing the Oceanids to grow more powerful.
It is also said by some that Oceanids were once sea creatures from a home far away who carried the fragments of a long-dead god to the many corners of this world. Perhaps they did this so that the love their god held for this world could be spread through the waters to all the land...

Abilities and Attacks

Hydro Mimics

The Oceanid summons various different water animals that must be fought and defeated in order to harm the boss. There are 8 different types of mimics in total that can be spawned by Oceanid. Each type has a decreased resistance to certain element, apart from Hydro, which they are completely immune to.

Pyro Resistance -55%
  • Boar (2 boars made of water that walk to the player at a slow pace, unless they are in close range, where they will charge their attack and proceed to ram into the player at a high speed)
  • Ferret (2 squirrel-like animals that approach the player at a medium speed, which attack the player using 3 different melee attack sets. Attacks are very swift strikes, making them hard to dodge unless you react fast)
Electro Resistance -55%
  • Crane (3 cranes which tend to spawn away from the player, avoiding close combat. Their main attack is to flap their wings, unleashing a deadly Hydro shot that travels at a somewhat fast speed)
  • Raptor (3 flying birds in the sky are spawned, which follow the player at a distance, before swooping down to attack. Very annoying creatures as they give very little warning before they strike, meaning you must have fast reflexes if you want to dodge these birds. On top of this, they are difficult to hit without the use of a bow or catalyst user)
Cryo Resistance -55%
  • Crab (2 Crabs that will spew a constant stream of damaging bubbles from their claws, which will always attempt to walk to the player at a perpendicular angle to the direction of movement, making them very annoying unless frozen. They will occasionally stop spraying bubbles giving you time to react.)
  • Mallard (2 Ducks that have a Hydro aura made of bubbles that deals DoT to the player if they are inside)
Geo Resistance -55%
  • Finch (A bird that has 2 main attacks, one being a medium plunge attack that can not be dodged, and a large plunge attack that lets out a blue circle to show that its attacking, which can be dodged)
  • Frog (A frog that has an attack similar to the crane and an attack that is similar to the finch's large plunge attack)

Abilities

Sinking Platform: After clearing two waves of Hydro Mimics, the Oceanid will select two random tiles in the 3x3 grid and sink them. This will deal moderate damage if caught in its AoE.

Submerge: The Oceanid submerges for a period of time, before resurfacing again.

Whirlpool: If the Hydro Mimics are not defeated in a certain amount of time, the Oceanid creates a whirlpool below the player that follows them, deals DoT damage, and explodes after a while, dealing massive damage.

Strategy

Before starting the fight, having a Bow or Catalyst user is highly recommended in case Rhodeia summons raptors, as they are particularly troublesome to hit without them. Geo Constructs such as Zhongli's Stone Steles and Albedo's Solar Isotoma skills will not work in the arena.

When the fight is initiated, Rhodeia will summon Hydro Mimics that imitate wildlife to fight the player on her behalf and change the weather to rain. These mimics will appear from one of the unsinked tiles that form the arena, and are directly linked to her health; after clearing each wave, she loses health. The first two instances of this are one batch of Hydro Mimics, which varies from the list above.

While each mimic does have varied resistances, all of them are immune to Hydro attacks for obvious reasons. The mimics' permanent Hydro status means that they can be inflicted with Vaporize, Electro-Charged and Frozen consistently if said characters are brought onto the field, the former two providing additional damage, while the latter can take pressure away from more damaging mimics. Electro attacks should be used with careful consideration, since the player will be wet for the entire battle and may accidentally apply Electro-Charged to themselves if careless.

The mimics can deal very high Hydro damage, so it's important to dodge their attacks or utilize shields to do so. The more troublesome mimics are the Raptors, Finches and Frogs. As stated above, Raptors are incredibly troublesome without Bow or Catalyst users. Finches and Frogs, after being defeated, will transform into a Hydro bomb that deals massive damage, coupled with an extremely wide reach - players will need to move away further than the game insists with the AoE indicator. While possible to run away from it without taking damage or using a shield to block it, this should only be done by defeating the mimic towards the edges of the arena.

After the first two waves of mimics have been cleared, Rhodeia will slam two random tiles into the water; however, it is unlikely she will aim for the tile the player is on, generally opting to hit one that they aren't standing on. Once this attack concludes, Rhodeia will now summon two sets of Hydro Mimics per wave.

When the next two waves of mimics are cleared, she will slam two more random tiles, before summoning two more sets of Hydro Mimics for the last wave. After the last mimic is destroyed, she will fall into the water, defeated.

Event Variant

Rhodeia's Rage is the boss variant of Rhodeia of Loch during the event Wishful Drops.

Trivia

  • In Greek mythology, the Oceanids were the nymph daughters of the Titan Oceanus. Rhodeia (also known as Rhodea or Rhodia) is one of them.
  • During Albedo's Story Quest, he pronounces Oceanid as "O-cee-a-nid" (/oʊˈsiːənɪd/), which is an established pronunciation of the mythological being, in addition to "Oh-shen-id" (/ˈoʊʃənɪd/).
  • Mimics are considered slimes, thus making Black Tassel's passive talent effective against them.
  • The Oceanid has been fully voiced in Version 1.4.
  • As a Lochfolk, Rhodeia hails from the nation of Fontaine, ruled by the Hydro Archon. Before the current Hydro Archon, the God Justice, ascended to the position, the Oceanids acted as spies, of a sort, spreading across the waters of Teyvat to learn about other regions and connect all people peacefully. Whatever the ideals of the current Hydro Archon, though, the Oceanids have denied her their support, instead holding onto her predecessor's values. Granted, this has not stopped Rhodeia, once the strongest and foremost of the Oceanid spies, from growing paranoid and hostile.
