How to Build Shenhe in Genshin Impact

Shenhe’s best builds are pretty simple to follow, as she isn’t a very complex character. Shenhe’s best role is a Cryo buffer who plans to stack as much Base Attack as possible. This allows her to provide as much extra Cryo damage as possible, boosting her team’s output by a ton.

Fans will want to build their Shenhe to have as much Attack as they can, utilizing some of the game’s best artifacts and weapons to boost it.

Genshin Impact players will want to focus on ATK% substats for their Shenhe, as they want to boost her attack as much as possible. Players can choose between utilizing a 2-PC Gladiator’s and Shimenawa set, or a 2-PC Shimenawa and Blizzard Strayer set.


Fans who want to take advantage of Shenhe’s damage can use the Blizzard Strayer 2-PC for some extra Cryo, but for those who mostly plan on using her for buffs, the double ATK% can help a lot. Here are some substats to focus on:

  • Plume and Flower: Best Substats, focus on ATK% and ER%
  • Sands: ATK% with ER% substats
  • Goblet: Cryo DMG or ATK% depending on whether Shenhe will be on the field
  • Circlet: ATK% or a Crit stat depending on Shenhe’s position

Shenhe’s best weapon is definitely the Calamity Queller, as it provides her with a massive amount of Attack%. This will boost Shenhe’s Cryo buffs by a ton, and players should opt for that weapon above any other.

She can also utilize weapons like the Engulfing Lightning or Skyward Spine, though they provide a less useful Substat. For F2P (free-to-play) Genshin Impact players, they can opt for a Favonius Lance or even the Lithic Spear.

Players can opt to utilize their Shenhe as the main damage source, but her cooldowns are very long, making it hard to manage her DPS output. Fans will get more value out of Shenhe by using her as support.

Shenhe is a useful character for any teams that need some extra Cryo damage, and she can seriously increase the output of main carries like Ayaka or Ganyu.
