At the present time, version 2.4 of Genshin Impact has officially been released with a lot of new content from story missions, maps… Among them, the thing that attracts gamers the most is still the new character with the new character. named Shenhe, even miHoYo used a new ghost quest to introduce this character. Besides, Shenhe is also very invested in character personality and attracts the admiration of many gamers.
Needless to say, Genshin Impact’s new magic mission is to introduce Shenhe
It can be said that in terms of advertising, miHoYo has done a good job of making gamers want to own this character. However, in terms of strength or practical gameplay, is Shenhe a character worth investing in as well as “donating blood”? Let’s find out together.
First we need to look at Shenhe’s talent set to see what role this character is used for. Basically, every effect of Shenhe’s elemental skills, fury skills, and fixed geniuses is a buff for teammates. Therefore, Shenhe’s role in the squad will be a form of damage support for DPS like Xingqiu, Albedo, Kazuha or Mona before.
Shenhe’s skill will buff damage to allies so this is a relatively stable damage support
Of course, this damage buff is extremely good, but the problem that Shenhe has is that the ability to activate those buffs is not clear. If the other characters have visual clarity (Kazuha creates a large wind zone, Albedo’s circle of influence…) it’s hard to say exactly when allies’ attacks are enhanced. by Shenhe. Therefore, this character proved to be quite bad to hold because it was difficult for players to grasp Shenhe’s power.
The ability to support other characters in Genshin Impact is shown a lot more clearly when compared to Shenhe
Next is the fact that Shenhe’s skill set can only maximize its power when you own a strong Ice-type DPS to take full advantage of the buffs this character provides. Among Genshin Impact’s current Ice-type generals, Ayaka and Ganyu are the two most suitable names to go with Shenhe. Many people may think of Eula, but this character is a physical DPS and the damage caused by Ice is not great. In addition, Shenhe is not too suitable when going with DPS outside the Ice system.
Ganyu and Ayaka are the 2 most suitable DPS to use with Shenhe
This leads to another problem of Shenhe that you will spend a lot of resources to maximize the power of this character. In addition to possessing Ayaka and Ganyu, these characters are required to have 5-star weapons such as Misty Night Light and Amos Bow. Shenhe herself also needs to have a weapon of Destruction to possess the highest amount of attack stats. Obviously, having to invest too many resources to maximize the power of a support character is very difficult for new players or not to deposit a lot of money.
In short, Shenhe is a pretty special support character when it comes to focusing on pushing the damage of Ice-type DPS as high as possible. So if you own a strong Ayaka or Ganyu, you should get Shenhe to help the damage they deal become even greater. If you are a F2P gamer who does not own the above two characters, “skip” Shenhe is essential to invest in other characters that are more friendly and easier to play.
In terms of versatility, friendly to all formations, Zhongli is a character worth investing in
