Version 2.4 promises a lot to Genshin Impact players, and one of the most interesting new features is the playable character Shenhe. Players have been looking around for Shenhe’s ascension materials. She will most likely be a 5 star Cryo polearm character in Genshin Impact. Shenhe’s character design was revealed alongside Yun Jin’s, piquing interest in the upcoming update’s character banners. Many Genshin Impact players now hope to summon and construct Shenhe.
Fortunately for them, the developers revealed Shenhe’s ascension materials. Shenhe and Yun Jin, the newest characters in Genshin Impact, were unveiled on social media at the start of the 2.3 updates. These long-awaited polearm users will probably arrive with the 2.4 patch, which is still ways off. Genshin Impact Version 2.4 will likely be released early next year, following the typical six-week release schedule. Let’s look into Shenhe’s ascension materials and more information surrounding her.
Who Is Shenhe?
Shenhe is MiHoYo’s other new character who was verified via a blog post. Further, Shenhe had many pupils whom she taught while traveling through different realms. The Lonesome Transcendence is an exorcist and disciple of the Cloud Retainer who resembles the Adeptus in appearance. Shenhe is Genshin’s second Cryo polearm user, and her demeanor has prompted some Teyvat residents to believe she is an Adeptus herself.
She has sparked a lot of discussions, and the most likely option seems to be that she’s 2.4’s new five-star character. When Shenhe performs Spring Spirit Summoning, she will grant all nearby party members the following effects. Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst damage increase by 15% for 10 seconds. The damage from Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks will increase by 15 percent for 15 seconds. When none of the effects is activated, activating it again will make the effect last longer.
What Is Shenhe’s Release Date?
Itto and Gorou were teased in version 2.2, but they aren’t expected to appear on the second banner until release 2.3. Developer Mihoyo verified Shenhe’s existence. Shenhe is most likely to make her debut during Version 2.4, which will start on January 5, 2022. As the New Year approaches, we’ll learn more about this five-star figure.
Remember that part of the information could alter before miHoYo officially unveils the character’s skills, as miHoYo hasn’t released everything about Shenhe.
Here are the few attacks that we know of. The Normal attack performs up to five spear strikes in a row. The charged attack lunge forward and inflict damage, but it takes more stamina. The Plunging attack plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging enemies and causing AoE damage when it hits.
Shenhe’s Elemental Skill has the Icy Quill effect on all party members when activated. The action changes depending on whether you press or hold.
Press: Rushes ahead with a Talisman Spirit, inflicting Cryo damage on enemies in its path.
Hold: Causes the Talisman Spirit to deal Cryo damage in an AoE area.
Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks along with the Elemental Skills and the Elemental Bursts provide Cryo damage to opponents. Shenhe’s current attack is proportional to the amount of damage done.
What Are Shenhe’s Ascension Materials?
Whopper flowers proliferate everywhere around Teyvat, while Qingxin grows near high cliffs in Liyue. Whopper flower Nectar, Shimmering Nectar, and Energy Nectar are all needed to ascend Shenhe. Further, the enemies drop these required materials. The other two of Shenhe’s ascension ingredients originate from boss battles. Also, it is used to locate Qingpix and Whopper flower spawn points. There are many areas in the Genshin Impact world to get your hands on the jade. Genshin Impact players can use the following items to ascend Shenhe:
Qingxin x 168
Shiva Jade Fragments X9
Whopper Flower Drops
Whopper Flower Nectar X 18
Energy Nectar X36
Shivada Jade Silver X1
Shimmering Nectar X30
Shivada Jade Chunk X9
In addition, the crafting bench helps improve and transform Jade stones as needed. A forthcoming world boss in Genshin Impact 2.4 will drop Dragonheir’s False Fin. For the time being, the global boss remains nameless. However, based on the name of the enemy’s substance, this foe may be Dragonheir of the Depths. Dragonair of the Depths used to terrorize the people of Enkanomiya, the underwater territory beneath Watatsumi Island, according to Genshin Impact legend.
