The official Genshin Impact account has revealed the weapon type for one of the upcoming characters, the long-awaited Shenhe. She is expected to arrive in update 2.4.
The addition of a new character is probably the most exciting thing a casual Genshin Impact player is looking forward to, especially in the latter stages of the game when there aren't as many quests and events to enjoy.
Leaks are pretty common in the Genshin Impact universe. An interesting name has been mentioned numerous times over the last couple of months and his name is Shenhe. Shee was also mentioned by multiple NPCs in the game's main storyline. Apparently, she could be the body form of the popular Adeptus, Cloud Retainer.
The Genshin Impact Twitter account has finally revealed the official art for one of the upcoming characters - Shenhe. After many months of speculations, it's finally confirmed that she will be a Cryo character, making her the ninth Vision holder in the game so far. Nothing mentioned on the official art or the Twitter description indicates her rarity but she's heavily rumored to be a five-star character. Even though many leaks were hinting that she might be a Catalyst user, the official art confirms that she's a Polearm wielder.
The official art also confirms that Shenhe is a Polearm character, just like Yun Jin. This will mean that we will get two brand new Polearm users in the following weeks. One of the Genshin Impact leakers has revealed the gameplay and idle animations for Shenhe:
Even though multiple leaks have been speculating about her element, none of them predicted her being a brand new Geo character. Previous leaks have been hinting that she's Anemo or even Dendro but it seems like miHoYo changed their mind when it comes to Yun Jin. She could have good synergy with the upcoming Gorou and Itto and if we add Albedo who will be available in a couple of days, there could be a great Geo party.
