Genshin Impact 2.4 Shenhe Farming Guide: Locations, Ascension & Talent Materials

The highly anticipated character, Shenhe, is finally arriving in Genshin Impact 2.4! She will be a 5-star Cryo Polearm user.

For months, the community speculated that Shenhe was the human representation of the Cloud Retainer. Now we know she is only her best disciple, but that doesn't mean she isn't powerful!

Here's our farming guide to prep for playing Shenhe from day one.

Release Date

Shenhe will arrive on the first banner of the Genshin Impact 2.4 update on January 5, 2021.

  • The server's maintenance will be around five hours.
  • Players will be rewarded with 300 Primogems for the downtime.

What to Farm for Shenhe


Ascension Materials

These are the ascension materials you'll need for Shenhe:

Dragonheir's False Fin is a character level up material dropped by the Bathysmal Vishaps, new bosses coming in Genshin Impact 2.4.

  • This boss is located in the Enkanomiya, the underwater area in Inazuma.
  • Players need x46 Dragonheir's False Fin for a Lvl 90 Shenhe.
  • Bathysmal Vishaps drop 2-3 of these materials once they are defeated for a cost of 40 resins.

Cecilia is a local specialty of Mondstadt found in the wilds of Starsnatch Cliff.

  • Players need 168 Cecilias for a Lvl 90 Shenhe.
  • There are 13 Cecilias in the wild refreshing every 48hrs.
  • You can grow more in your Serenitea Pot and buy from Flora.

Whopperflower, a prevalent enemy, you can find these flowers usually alone or by pairs. They can harness Cryo, Pyro, and Electro Elements.

  • Players can find these enemies in all regions in Teyvat and Ley Line Deposits
  • x18 Energy Nectar, x30 Shimmering Nectar, and x36 Whopperflower Nectar are needed to level up Shenhe to Lvl 90

Talent Materials

  • Shenhe needs the materials dropped by Whopperflowers to level up her Talents.

Prosperity Series are talent-level books that players can obtain in the domain Taishan Mansion in Jueyun Karst on Monday, Thursday, and Sunday.

  • To max Shenhe's Talents, players need to collect:
    • 9 Teachings of Prosperity
    • 63 Guide to Prosperity
    • 114 Philosophies of Prosperity

La Signora, the Fatui Harbinger, is a Genshin Impact weekly boss in the Narukami Island Tenshukaku Domain.

  • La Signora will drop the Hellfire Butterfly when defeated.
    • Shenhe needs 18 butterflies for max Talent.

Possible Artifacts for Shenhe

According to leaks, Shenhe will be the best fit for a new Artifact Set called Glacier and Snowfield.


Two pieces of Glacier and Snowfield will increase Cryo DMG by 15%. Four pieces of this set will increase Superconduct DMG by 100%, Melt DMG by 15%, and increase by 30% when the character uses an Elemental Burst. With this, we expect Shenhe will be an extremely powerful damage dealer.

Additionally, players will also need Shivada Jade, common crafting material for Cryo Characters, and tons of Mora to level up Shenhe to the highest level.
