Your very first side quest in Wuthering Waves is a fun one, as you take on the form of a speedy, flying puffer fish to astound a group of easily impressed students.

To continue, mash the jump button again to hover over the walkway in front of you, without touching the ground, to reach the water on the other side.

Then do the same twice more, hovering over the walkways until you reach the pond in the middle of the city.

At this point the quest will end and you're given a few XP-boosting items to beef up your roster of characters.

However, this also serves as a great introduction to the different traversal powers Echoes can have on top of their combat and healing utility. I'd quite like to be a Gulpuff all the time, actually...
