Genshin Impact Version 2.4 was released last January 5, 2022. The update includes the release of the two new Liyue characters, Shenhe and Yun Jin. Shenhe is a five-star Cryo polearm user that happens to be the disciple of the Adepti, Cloud Retainer. Yun Jin is another polearm user who holds a Geo vision. She is a prestigious dancer and singer at the Heyu Tea House.
So what do these two new characters have to offer? Below are details about their skills to help you decide whether to pull them from their Event Banner or not.
Shenhe is a descendant of a clan of exorcists. But due to specific reasons, she became a disciple of Cloud Retainer.
Spring Spirit Summoning – Elemental Skill
This grants all of Shenhe’s party members the Icy Quill effect. It also deals with Cryo Damage differently based on whether it’s pressed or held.
- Press – Shenhe rushes forward with a Talisman Spirit, which deals Cryo Damage to opponents along her path.
- Hold – Shenhe commands the Talisman Spirit to deal AoE Cryo Damage.
- Icy Quill – When all her attacks deal Cryo damage to opponents, the Damage dealt will increase based on Shenhe’s current Attack.
Divine Maiden’s Deliverance – Elemental Burst
- Shenhe unleashes the power of her Talisman Spirit, which allows it to roam in this plane and deal AoE Cryo Damage.
- The Talisman Spirit will create a field that decreases the Cryo Resistance and Physical Resistance of opponents. It also deals periodic Cryo Damage to opponents within its area.
Yun Jin is the Yun-Han Opera Troupe’s director, making her a famous figure in Liyue Harbor’s opera scene. She has a Geo vision and uses a polearm to deal with his enemies.
Opening Flourish – Elemental Skill
- Press – Yun Jin flourishes her polearm in a cloud-grasping stance which deals Geo Damage.
- Hold – Yun Jin takes up the Flourish stance, which charges up, forming a shield. The shield’s damage absorption is based on her Max HP and has 150% effectiveness against Elemental Damage and Physical Damage.
- The shield will last until she unleashes her Elemental Skill. Once the shield duration ends or breaks, Yun Jin will release the charged energy as an attack, dealing Geo Damage.
Cliffbreakers Banner – Elemental Burst
- Yun Jin deals AoE Geo Damage, which grants all nearby party members her Flying Cloud Flag Formation effect.
- When Normal Attack Damage is dealt with opponents, its Bonus Damage will deal based on Yun Jin’s current Defense.
- When one Normal Attack hits multiple opponents, the effect will trigger numerous times based on the number of opponents hit. The number of times the effect is activated will be counted independently for each party member.
Shenhe and Yun Jin are now available in Genshin Impact in the Event Banner, The Transcendent One Returns. The banner will run from January 5, 2022, to January 25, 2022. Genshin Impact 2.4 Update is now available to download on your gaming PC or mobile devices.
