Genshin Impact: Shenhe Build Guide

Build Guide Best Weapons
Team Compositions Constellation Guide

Shenhe is a Genshin Impact support that enhances Cryo DMG by providing extra damage that scales with her own ATK. This extra damage is added before any DMG multiplier and Crit calculation, which makes it significantly powerful in Cryo teams, considering this Element typically has a large Crit DMG.

Since her damage boost scales with ATK and her personal damage is negligible, Shenhe build in Genshin Impact focuses primarily on maximizing her ATK while also providing enough Energy Recharge to ensure her Burst can be cast continuously.

Shenhe Build – Best Weapon

Shenhe best weapon in Genshin Impact should either enhance her ATK stat or provide Energy Recharge. Here are some examples:

  1. Calamity Queller: The best-in-slot weapon for Shenhe that gives a lot of ATK.
  2. Engulfing Lightning: Great for its Energy Recharge sub-stat; passive also gives some extra ATK.
  3. Vortex Vanquisher: Passive can’t be stacked off-field, but is still a great stat stick for Shenhe.
  4. Skyward Spine: High base ATK and Energy Recharge sub-stat.
  5. Favonius Lance: Good to Battery the entire team, and has a decent base ATK, unlike its bow counterpart.
  6. Lithic Spear: Has ATK sub-stat and is especially great in a Liyue-centric team.
  7. Primordial Jade Winged-Spear: Passive can’t stack off-field, but still a great stat stick.
  8. Staff of Homa: Provide extra ATK depending on her HP.
  9. Wavebreaker’s Fin: Has a massive base ATK and ATK sub-stat.
  10. Missive Windspear: F2P Polearm that enhances ATK and provides more ATK if Shenhe triggers an Elemental reaction.
  11. Prototype Starglitter: Forgeable weapon that’s only good for its Energy Recharge sub-stat.

Shenhe Build – Best Artifact

Although Shenhe’s buff in Genshin Impact scales with ATK, players would get better value from her if she uses 4-Noblesse Oblige. Of course, if players don’t have this set, they can use 2-ATK +18% + 2-ATK +18%.

Shenhe Talent Priority In Genshin Impact

Shenhe talent priority in Genshin Impact is Elemental Skill > Elemental Burst. Normal Attack can be left at level 1 as players shouldn’t use Shenhe to Normal Attack.

Shenhe’s buff scales off her Elemental Skill, which is why it holds the top priority. Meanwhile, her Elemental Burst can provide up to 15% Cryo RES reduction at level 10. Shenhe’s ultimate demands a large 80 Energy, so it’s a good idea to have some Energy Recharge when playing her.

Shenhe Talent Level Recommendation

  • Normal Attack: 1
  • Elemental Skill: 10
  • Elemental Burst: 10

About the author


In love with RPGs like Souls and Elder Scrolls games. I also enjoy RTS like Age of Empires and the ancient Command and Conquer games. Despite all that, I still enjoy light games like Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail. In conclusion, I like to give every single game a fair chance as long as it looks like it was made with passion.
