‘Genshin Impact’ Shenhe release date, trailer, skills, story, and constellations

Published

on

Genshin Impact Version 2.3 only just launched, but we’re already looking ahead to future updates. One of the most exciting additions with each update comes in the form of new playable characters. Following a batch of leaks for Version 2.4, developer miHoYo officially revealed Shenhe via Twitter. There’s still plenty to learn about Shenhe, but let’s take a look at everything we know about this five-star Cryo polearm character, from her abilities, personality, and possible release date.

When is the Genshin Impact Shenhe Banner release date?

It’s unknown when Shenhe will launch officially. miHoYo

Developer miHoYo has confirmed the existence of Shenhe but has yet to reveal when this new character will be added to Genshin Impact. It’s highly likely Shenhe will make her debut sometime during Version 2.4, which will begin on January 5, 2022. We’ll find out more about this five-star character as we approach the New Year.

Who is Shenhe in Genshin Impact?

Shenhe has a mean streak, which aids her in battle. miHoYo

Shenhe is a Cryo character who wields a polearm in Genshin Impact. She’s described as a “ferocious” warrior with a temper and has the ability to absolutely decimate her surroundings if she gets angry enough. So it’s best to stay on her good side.

Below is a description of Shenhe according to the Cloud Retainer, as shown on the official Genshin Impact Twitter account:

“One has traversed many realms and taken a great many pupils. Among them, Shenhe bears the closest resemblance to oneself.”

Another tweet refers to her as an “Ethereal Soul Amidst the Mortal Realm” who thinks that “Cloud Retainer is a knowledgeable and chatty master.” It also notes, “Shenhe comes from a branch family of a clan of exorcists. Due to certain reasons, Cloud Retainer took her in as a disciple.”

As we get closer to Version 2.4, miHoYo will likely give us more details about Shenhe’s personality.

Is there a Genshin Impact Shenhe trailer?

Sadly, there isn’t a trailer dedicated to Shenhe at this time, but miHoYo will likely put something together ahead of the release of Version 2.4. For now, you can enjoy the Version 2.3 Special Program video that covers everything about the latest update.

What are Shenhe’s abilities?

Shenhe’s abilities haven’t been officially confirmed by miHoYo. miHoYo

Since miHoYo hasn’t officially revealed everything about Shenhe, all we can do is rely on leakers for information, such as Honey Hunter. Keep in mind, some of this could change before miHoYo officially reveals the character’s abilities.

Normal Attack: Dawnstar Shooter

  • Normal attack: Performs up to five consecutive spear strikes
  • Charged attack: Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to lunge forward and deal damage
  • Plunging attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE damage upon impact

Elemental Skill: Spring Spirit Summoning

Shenhe’s Elemental Skill changes depending on whether you press or hold the attack button, but it always grants all party members with the Icy Quill effect:

  • Press: Rushes forward together with a Talisman Spirit, dealing Cryo damage to opponents along the path
  • Hold: Commands the Talisman Spirit to deal AoE Cryo damage

Icy Quil

When using Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks, Elemental Skills, and Elemental Bursts deal Cryo damage to opponents. The damage dealt is increased based on Shenhe’s current Attack.

The Icy Quill effect will clear once its duration ends or after a certain number of stacks are consumed. Holding rather than pressing grants a longer duration and more stacks generated.

When one Cryo damage instance strikes multiple opponents, stacks will be consumed based on the number of opponents hit. The Icy Quill effects and stacks on every party member will be counted independently.

Elemental Burst: Divine Maiden’s Deliverance

Unleashes the power of the Talisman Spirit, allowing it to roam free in this plane, dealing AoE Cryo damage. The Talisman Spirit then creates a field that decreases the Cryo RES and Physical RES of opponents within it. It also periodically deals Cryo Damage to all opponents within the field.

Passive Skills

Shenhe’s Passive Skills can help out the entire team, granting party members with temporary buffs.

  • Precise Comings and Goings: Gains 25 percent more rewards when dispatched on a Liyue Expedition that takes longer than 20 hours.
  • Deific Embrace: An active character within the field created by Divine Maiden’s Deliverance gains a 10 percent Cryo damage Bonus.
  • Spirit Communion Seal: After Shenhe uses Spring Spirit Summoning, she will grant all nearby party members the following effects. Press: Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst damage increased by 15 percent for 10s. Hold: Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack damage increased by 15 percent for 15s. When either effect is active, activating either effect again will refresh the already-active effect’s duration.

Constellations

  • Clarity of Heart: Spring Spirit Summoning can be used 1 more time.
  • Centered Spirit: Divine Maiden’s Deliverance lasts for 6 seconds longer. Active characters within the skill’s field deal 15 percent increased Cryo CRIT damage.
  • Seclusion: Increases the Level of Spring Spirit Summoning by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Insight: When characters under the effect of Icy Quill applied by Shenhe trigger its damage Bonus effects, Shenhe will gain a Skyfrost Mantra stack. When Shenhe uses Spring Sprit Summoning, she will consume all stacks of Skyfrost Mantra, increasing the damage of that Spring Spirit Summoning by 5 percent for each stack consumed. Max 50 stacks. Stacks last for 60s.
  • Divine Attainment: Increases the Level of Divine Maiden’s Deliverance by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Mystical Abandon: When characters trigger Icy Quill’s effects using Normal and Charged Attack damage, no Icy Quill stacks will be used up.

Genshin Impact is available right now.

Biden delivers remarks, to push shots, not more restrictions as variant spreads

Published

on

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden will urge Americans to get vaccinated including booster shots as he seeks to quell concerns Monday over the new COVID-19 variant omicron, but he won’t immediately push for more restrictions to stop its spread, his chief medical adviser said.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert and Biden’s leading COVID-19 adviser, said Monday that there were as yet still no cases of the variant identified in the U.S. but that it was “inevitable” that it would make its way into the country.

Speaking on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Fauci said scientists hope to know in the next week or two how well the existing COVID-19 vaccines protect against the variant, and how dangerous it is compared to earlier strains.

“We really don’t know,” Fauci said, calling speculation “premature.”

The new variant poses the latest test to Biden’s efforts to contain the pandemic, mitigate its impacts on the economy and return a sense of normalcy to the U.S. during the holiday season.

Biden was to speak Monday about the urgency of getting vaccinated against COVID-19 to protect against variants, especially as roughly 80 million Americans aged 5 and up haven’t yet received any shots. But Biden was not expected to announce any new virus-related restrictions, beyond last week’s move to restrict travel from South Africa and seven other countries in the region, effective Monday.

Other nations were also moving to close their borders or reinstate lockdowns amid a host of other severe measures to prevent the omicron variant from spreading, but Fauci indicated that the U.S. was not following suit.

Asked if more U.S. restrictions were imminent, Fauci said, “I don’t think so at all.” Later, on “CBS Mornings,” he said, “Let’s not be talking about lockdowns.”

Fauci said there was no need to panic about the new variant, but “we should be concerned, and our concern should spur us to do the things that we know work,” such as vaccinations.

The move to limit most travel from the countries where omicron was first identified was meant to provide time for the U.S to learn more about the variant and to “intensify” the domestic vaccination campaign, Fauci said.

“It buys you a couple of weeks because if you can keep things out in force for a couple of weeks you can do a lot of things,” he told CBS.

Still, he said omicron would eventually reach the U.S. and could, like the delta variant before it, become the dominant strain, since omicron “has a transmissibility advantage” over other variants.

Pharmaceutical companies are already adjusting their existing COVID-19 vaccines to better attack the omicron variant, but Fauci said Americans should make it a priority to get either their first shots or a booster dose now, rather than waiting for a new formulation.

“I would strongly suggest you get boosted now,” he said.

He added that depending on what scientists learn about the omicron variant in the coming weeks “we may not need” targeted boosters to contain that strain of the virus.

Any omicron-specific vaccine probably could not begin to be produced for another two or three months, so getting boosters now is a “very important initial line of defense,” Dr. Paul Burton, chief medical officer for the vaccine-maker Moderna, said Monday.

Burton said Moderna and other vaccine companies are testing existing COVID-19 vaccines to determine how effective they are against the omicron variant.

“If we need to manufacture an omicron-specific variant, it’s going to take some weeks, two to three months is probably what we’re looking at to be able to really begin to manufacture,” Burton told ABC.
