In Wuthering Waves, set on the planet Solaris 3 devastated by the Lament event, players start as Rover. Rover wakes up without memories and sets off on a journey to uncover their past and find out what really happened. Along the way, Rover gets to know the Resonators better—these are characters who can connect with specific objects and change their vibrations.
