Shenhe in Genshin Impact 2.4
As we all know, Genshin Impact is an open-world, action-adventure, character-based game. The game features a wide selection of playable characters that possess different kinds of elemental prowess and abilities. The characters in the game are mainly tier-based with five-star clearly being at the top.
And with the introduction of Shenhe, the game will have a five-star Cryo user for the very first time. Having her in your team will complete Cryo elemental needs in combat.

There will be, for the first time, four banner runs with the new update. Two of which will commence once the update hits, while the other two will start a few weeks later down the road. One of the first two banners runs called ‘The Transcendent One Returns’ will feature this new character. Now it’s all up to your luck and draws chances that will determine the rest.
As a five-star Cryo polearm user, Shenhe will be as powerful as you would expect in the category. All her abilities not only inflict damage but boost the party members.
- Shenhe’s Normal attack is called ‘Dawnstar Shooter.’ On normal attacks, it performs up to 5 consecutive spear strikes. Her charged attack requires a lot of her stamina which she transforms into a forward lunge attack that deals heavy damage. Her plunging attack deals damage in opponents along the path and inflicts AoE damage upon impact.
- Shenhe’s Elemental Skill is called ‘Spring Spirit Summoning’. When performed, it inflicts heavy Cryo damage to the enemy nearby of its range. It also massively boosts the Icy Quill Buff of all the party member’s normal, charged, and plunging attacks.
- Shenhe’s Elemental Burst is called ‘Divine Maiden’s Deliverance’. When it is engaged, it unleashes the power of the Talisman Spirit, which roams freely in the close vicinity, and inflicts heavy AoE Cryo damage. The elemental burst creates a field that affects the Cryo resistance and Physical resistance of the enemies trapped and decreases it. This causes her and other party members’ Cryo attacks more effective. It also periodically deals Cryo damage to the foes entrapped within the field.
All in all, her abilities and passives will make her the first choice in the party for many players. Apart from being a fully potent character, she boosts the performance and impact of other members of the party. The new 2.4 version update will also introduce two new artifacts in the game. They are the Snowfield and the Glacier, which you can pair with Shenhe to make her more eventful in scenarios.
