Shenhe Quick TL;DR Team Comp Guide!

Shenhe (Chong’s aunty, but our mommy 😳)

Those red ropes prevent her from being a homicidal maniac

Element: Cryo

Weapon: Polearm

Pros:

24/7 Cryo procsStrong buffs/debuffs Viable as sub-DPS
Has ATK% as hidden statHigh damage multipliersDecent AoE
Extremely easy to gear/play Good energy generation

Cons:

Q is 80 costCan only buff Cryo DPSLimited until C1
Buff can disappear in 1 attackATK% reliant

PSA #1: Shenhe’s major flaw is her buffs only apply to Cryo DMG — I will mention how Chongyun can change it in PSA #2. Other than that, she’s a strong buffer who can can further the damage with her debuffs!

Ganyu
  • Allows Cryo resonance, providing free CRIT% and shines even more in a Freeze comp
  • Ganyu’s Charged Attack (Bloom) is affected by Shenhe’s Hold E buff, increasing her overall DPS x2
  • Ganyu’s overall kit also gains bonus damage from Shenhe’s Q RES shred
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH AYAKA OR BASICALLY ANY CRYO DPS (or technically Phys DPS)
Sucrose
  • Can slot TTDS further boosting ATK% — however still use TTDS buff on DPS and NOT SHENHE
  • Amazing energy battery and insane AoE with her E and Q
  • Can run 4x Viridescent Venerer, further shredding enemy’s Cryo RES
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH KAZUHA OR VENTI FOR CONSISTENT AOE SHRED
Kokomi
  • Kokomi’s E has great AoE that can apply Hydro to enemies + heals for a lot
  • Amazing for Freeze comp and alternatively a sub-DPS slot with her Q
  • Paired with Ganyu’s Q + Shenhe’s Q can essentially perma-Freeze with her E alone (Q is just icing on top)
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH BARBARA OR MONA FOR TAUNT + MORGANA COMBO

PSA #2: Shenhe’s E buff only applies to Cryo DMG attacks, but Chongyun’s E can essentially make it so a lot of Normal/Charged characters can gain the buffs. Is it worth it? — Not really. Highly recommended that if you want to buff non-Cryo to run Bennett or Sara, but for Cryo characters Shenhe is an amazing pick!

Great flex slot alternatives:

  • ANY CRYO DPS – Ayaka, Rosaria, Chongyun, etc… Basically any Cryo character can massive benefit from Shenhe’s E + Q buffs
  • Phys DPS (Razor/Eula) – Shenhe can easily proc Superconduct, but her Q also shreds enemy’s Phys RES as well
  • Kazuha/Venti – Good AoE that make it easy for Shenhe to proc her Q debuff from the start + 4x VV shred to Cryo RES
  • Barbara – Mainly for Freeze comp as her E can proc Wet, but also a decent healer replacement
  • Mona – Her E taunt is amazing for Freeze, and Q to further enhance nuke potential (you won’t have a healer tho)
  • Bennett – Technically Bennett’s Q ATK buff does affect Shenhe’s E buff as well
  • Xingqiu – Can run if using Ayaka as main Cryo DPS for Freeze comp

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK QUESTIONS BELOW! I’ll try my best to respond as I know some players may not have ANY of the characters mentioned.

Hope this helped. Bye.

  1. Hello!
    i use the comp : Ayaka Mona, Sucrose, Shenhe, and I feel this team a little fragile in fighting 3 maguu kenkis, especially Shenhe since she has little def.
    Does replacing Sucrose with Diona reduces the overall dmg for comfortable play, or do I just replace mona by kokomi and go no shield?

    Also, when is Yunjin comp up? I really like her to be on Yoimiya team, but having trouble in rotation to maximize yoi dmg.

    • You can replace Sucrose with Diona if you don’t mind the TTDS loss. As for Yunjin comp, I’ll be doing it later this week (been busy with work)
