Shenhe is the new 5-star Liyue character introduced in Genshin Impact Version 2.4 Update. She holds a Cryo vision and uses polearm as her weapon to deal continuous damage to her enemies.
Shenhe is an ideal option for players who are looking for a Sub-DPS character to pair with their DPS Cryo dealer. She works well with the likes of Eula, Chongyun, Ayaka, and Ganyu. You can also add Hydro AoE characters in your party to optimize her Elemental Skill and Burst.
But to be able to use Shenhe’s full potential, you need to equip her with the right weapons and the right artifacts. Check the ideal build for Shenhe below:
