Shenhe: best Cryo support character in Genshin Impact

Shenhe is the first five-star character that primarily focuses on boosting only one element. She helps the team by boosting their Cryo damage thanks to her kit. Moreover, players discovered that with her buff, Diona was able to deal triple damage to opponents even though she is a Support character just like Shenhe.

This means Cryo damage dealers can deal tremendous damage with the help of Shenhe’s kit. After using her elemental skill, everyone in the party, including herself, will get five or seven Icy Quills stacks. These stacks boost party members’ Cryo damage based on Shenhe’s base attack.

The best Cryo damage dealers in the game are Ganyu and Ayaka. Ganyu is a bow user, while Ayaka wields a sword. Interestingly, Ganyu can play the role of both the main damage dealer and Support character.

Furthermore, she is having her re-run banner after Shenhe’s banner. Therefore, it would be best for you to try your luck in Shenhe and later invest in Ganyu to build a powerful team. In case you already have Ganyu or Ayaka in your collection, then you should definitely invest in Shenhe’s banner.
