miHoYo has revealed that it will release a new archon quest for players to enjoy.

Developers have also revealed that Shenhe is a support character and will help Cryo characters a lot. After using her elemental skill, the Cryo DMG of characters inside the radius will be increased based on Shenhe’s normal attack. Shenhe’s elemental burst will deal massive Cyro AoE DMG and will also reduce the Cyro and Physical resistance of enemies.

Yun Jin is a famous opera performer in Liyue. She is a four-star Geo character and will play the role of a support unit. Yun Jin is beneficial to the team through Normal attacks. Her elemental skill will grant her a shield and will deal Geo DMG to the enemies.

Furthermore, her elemental burst will deal AoE Geo DMG and will grant a bonus to the team members. The bonus will increase characters’ Normal attack DMG based on Yun Jin’s current defense.
