Genshin Impact Shenhe Guide: Build, Weapons and Artifacts

Shenhe Guide Genshin Impact

Shenhe is a 5 star Cryo heroine. She has just arrived in update 2.4 of Genshin Impact. Fighting with a hast weapon, she is mainly intended for a support role. It can considerably increase the damage of your Cryo characters. However, it will be much less effective in other teams. To help you decide whether to summon it and to better understand its gameplay, we have written a complete guide to Shenhe from Genshin Impact. With our tips and advice, you can ensure the best build for her: weapons, artifacts, skills, etc.

How to get Shenhe in Genshin Impact ?

Shenhe is a character you can only get temporarily. She must be highlighted in a character event wish.

You have a small chance to unlock Shenhe by doing summonses with the character event wish The Transcendent One Returns from January 5th to January 25th until 5pm. You will then have to wait for a rerun of the character.

Shenhe's constellations

While Shenhe can be played without constellations, they can greatly enhance the character! His Spirit Centered C2 extends his elemental rampage by 6 seconds and increases the critical and Cryo damage of characters in the field generated by the attack by 15%.

How to play Shenhe in Genshin Impact ?

Shenhe's gameplay is primarily support-oriented. She deals Cryo damage and boosts the Cryo attacks of in-game heroes with her Spring Spirit Summoning elemental attack. In addition to causing ice damage, all characters benefit from an Icy Quill effect.

Shenhe's elemental ability in Genshin Impact : Spring Spirit Summoning

When a Cryo attack hits an enemy, the damage is multiplied according to Shenhe's maximum attack. You get 5 charges with a short press and 7 with a long press. Each hero has its own charges. For example, if you have 3 Cryo characters, this will give you 15 charges on short support and 21 on long support. If this bonus is excellent in single-target, it is more greedy in multi-target. Each enemy hit by an attack consumes a stack.

Shenhe's Elemental Unleashing: Deliverance of the Divine Damsel

Her elemental rampage Deliverance of the Divine Maiden also increases your team's damage. The ability releases a talismanic spirit that reduces the Cryo and physical RES of enemies, while dealing Cryo damage. And, thanks to the Divine Embrace passive, all characters in this field receive a 15% Cryo damage bonus.

To play Shenhe well in Genshin Impact, we advise you to improve his attack and elemental unleashing as a priority.

What is the best equipment for Shenhe?

Shenhe is mainly used to boost your team's Cryo damage with her Icy Quill charges. The bonus deployed is calculated in proportion to her total attack. Thus, the higher it is, the more important the boost will be. To have an optimal build, you must largely favour this statistic.
