Shenhe was introduced in Genshin Impact 2.4 update and instantly took everyone's heart with her story and kind heart. She comes from a branch family of a clan of exorcists and is the disciple of Cloud Retainer.

She is a 5-star character in the game and bears the Cyro element. Shenhe is used as a support character as she can buff other party members and de-buff the enemies. 

If you have Shenhe in your team and want to utilize her properly, here is the best build for her including the weapon and artifacts.
