Genshin Impact Hydroculous are scattered all around Fontaine. You can collect these items during your exploration adventure in this Hydro nation. Let's check out the quantity and locations of these collectible items until update 4.1 here.

I. Hydroculus Quantity [Till Update 4.1]

Fontaine is a large nation with aboveground, underground, and underwater areas. This nation also has 150 Hydroculi until update 4.1. It's still fewer than the quantity of Dendroculi in Sumeru (271 Dendroculi). But there can be more Hydroculi in upcoming updates when further parts are unlocked.

You have to collect all Hydroculi in aboveground, underground, and underwater areas around this nation to maximize the level of the Hydro Statue of Seven in Fontaine. It will be a difficult challenge for Genshin Impact players.

II. Hydroculus Locations & Farming Routes

The other 16 items spawn above the ground, near two Statues of Seven and three Teleport Waypoints in this region. You don't have to solve any puzzles or unlock any hidden chambers to get these collectibles. Here are some recommended farming routes in this area.

  • Start from the Statue of Seven near the Court of Fontaine, go along the path to the other Statue of Seven, and collect around 10 oculi along the path.
  • From the Teleport Waypoint in the South of the area, head towards the domain of the Experimental Field Generator boss and find 4 items in this area.
  • Teleport back to that waypoint and glide down the mountain slope towards the Statue of Seven and the Lake on the north side.
  • When reaching the lake and unlocking another teleport waypoint, head to the north and south ends of the road to grab two other collectibles.
Central Laboratory Ruins South
Mark all Hydroculus locations in the south of The Central Laboratory Ruins on the ground and underwater.

#5. Central Laboratory Ruins (North)

There are 24 Hydroculi in the Southern part of Central Laboratory Ruins. You can find five collectibles on the high ground of the floating ruins. Travelers have to run and glide along the floating path. There is one collectible inside one Hydro cube.

Other 19 collectibles spawn above the ground. You need to use portable Energy devices in the institute to get some hidden collectibles. Besides, most of them are easy to collect. Keep an eye on the minimap and head towards their locations to find them. Here are some notes for you.

  • You can find lots of oculi on different steps of the mountain slopes.
  • Stick to the coastal line so that you will not miss any collectibles lying between the land and the water bodies.
  • There is one off-shore oculus on the small island in the north of the water part, near the northern border of Fontaine 4.1.
  • You should start from the northmost teleport waypoint and head south to take advantage of the terrain because this waypoint lies on the top of the mountain. So, you can glide down and look around to spot oculi. Gliding is faster and easier than climbing in Genshin Impact.
Central Laboratory Ruins North
All Hydroculus locations in the north of The Central Laboratory Ruins are above the ground.

You should use Anemo characters like Wanderer, Venti, and Kazuha to launch into the air, touch these items, and jump between broken parts of the floating path. Besides, Zhongli, Albedo, and Geo Travelers can provide Geo platforms to climb and reach floating oculi.

#6. Underwater Area

You can find 15 Hydroculi in the underwater area of the new Fontaine map in Update 4.1. Half of them spawn inside underwater tunnels. You can see their icons on the minimap while processing quests in this area. Most of them spawn near Tepeort waypoints. Therefore, you should collect these items when going to unlock these underwater waypoints.

Underwater Hydroculus Locations
Mark these underwater Hydroculus locations in the new map of Fontaine 4.1 to collect these items.

III. How To Use Hydroculi

When getting enough Hydro Oculi to unlock a new level of the Statue of Seven, you should go to one of three statues at the entrance of the city, West Slopes of Mont Automnequi, or Court of Fontaine. Unlocking a new level of this statue gives players many attractive rewards, such as Primogems, Shrine of Depth Keys, etc.

Collecting Hydroculi is one of the best ways to collect Adventure Encounter Points and claim Daily Commission Rewards without having to do these missions. You can unlock a Daily Commission gift box when collecting every two Hydroculi. Don't forget to claim Daily Commission rewards after obtaining eight Hydroculi per day.

Hydroculus In Fontaine
You need to collect Hydroculi while exploring the map and unlocking waypoints to save time.

With 150 Oculi in the current map, you can unlock the Statues of Seven in the Land of Hydro to level 7. Just wait for further parts of the Hydro nation to be unlocked for more Hydroculi.
