Genshin Impact 2.4 – Yun Jin and Shenhe Character Leaks

Genshin Impact 2.3 has just launched today and yet leaks and speculations about Genshin Impact 2.4 is already abuzz around the internet. While it may seem that the next update is quite a bit away, it’s never too early to get a jump on that oh so tedious grind.

In the next update rumoured to be happening on January 6th 2022 we’re getting two new characters, a new map area, the return of the Lantern Festival and a highly requested character re-run.

 

Shenhe ★★★★★

| WEAPON: Polearm | ROLE: Support| ELEMENT: Cryo

Shenhe comes from a branch family of a clan of exorcists. The Cloud Retainer took her in as a disciple. To Shenhe, Cloud Retainer is a knowledgeable and chatty master. To Cloud Retainer, Shenhe stands out as special from amongst the mortals she has instructed.

Living with adepti as a human is by no means an easy task, but Shenhe has a unique constitution, an immensely strong will, and a great talent for adepti arts, all of which have won her the acknowledgement of the adepti. However, the long years of cultivation, coupled with the habit of eating divine herbs and drinking the dew of the mountains, have made her more and more distant from earthly life, and she has even been regarded as a mysterious white-haired adeptus.

TalentTypeDescription
Dawnstar ShooterNormal / Charged AttackNormal Attack: Perform up to five consecutive polearm strikes

Charged Attack: Lunge forward after consuming stamina to deal damage to opponents along the way

Plunging Attack: Plunge from mid-air to hit the ground below, dealing damage to opponents on the way and AoE damage on impact with the ground
Spring Spirit SummoningElemental SkillDeals Cryo damage to enemies, depending on whether the button is pressed or held. Also grants all nearby party members an Icy Quill effect.

Icy Quill
Whenever any regular attack, elemental skill, or elemental burst deals Cryo damage to opponents, the damage dealt increases based on Shenhe’s current attack. This effect lasts until the duration ends or that ally’s attacks consume a defined number of stacks. The stacks deplete for every opponent hit if a Cryo damage attack hits multiple opponents. The Icy Quill stacks and effects for each party member with this buff are independent of each other.

Tap: Shenhe rushes forward together with a talisman spirit to deal Cryo damage to opponents along her path

Hold: Shenhe commands the talisman spirit instead to deal AoE Cryo damage. This creates more Icy Quill stacks and a longer Icy Quill duration
Divine Maiden’s DeliveranceElemental BurstThis attack unleashes the power of the talisman spirit and allows it to roam around for a short time. It deals AoE Cryo damage wherever it goes. The spirit then creates a field that does Cryo damage and decreases the Cryo resistance and physical resistance to any opponents inside of it.
Precise Comings and GoingsPassive TalentGain 25% more rewards when dispatched on a Liyue Expedition that takes longer than 20 hours
Deific EmbracePassive TalentAn active character within the field created by Shenhe’s elemental burst (Divine Maiden’s Deliverance) gets 10% Cryo damage bonus
Spirit Communion SealPassive TalentWhen Shenhe uses her elemental skill (Spring Spirit Summoning), she grants all nearby party members the following effects depending on whether the button is pressed or held. Any active effect’s durations refresh if you activate either effect before its time limit expires
 

Yun Jin ★★★★

| WEAPON: Polearm | ROLE: – Support| ELEMENT: Geo

She is the director of the Yun-Han Opera Troupe and is also a famous figure in Liyue Harbor’s opera scene.

Yun Jin is known for her sweet singing voice and intricate costumes, as well as her animated and dynamic performances. Whether it’s a delicate and dignified young lady or a mighty and honourable heroine, she can play any role. What’s even rarer is that this young actress is also a playwright. Other than “The Divine Damsel of Devastation”, the Yun-Han Opera Troupe has performed many other new plays in recent years, all of which were written by Yun Jin.

TalentTypeDescription
Dawnstar ShooterNormal / Charged AttackNormal Attack: Perform up to five consecutive polearm strikes

Charged Attack: Lunge forward after consuming stamina to deal damage to opponents along the way

Plunging Attack: Plunge from mid-air to hit the ground below, dealing damage to opponents on the way and AoE damage on impact with the ground
Whirling OpenerElemental SkillTap: Yun Jin flourishes her spear in the ‘Cloud-Grazing’ form, dealing Geo damage

Hold: Yun Jin takes up the ‘Whirling Opener’ stance and charges up, forming a shield that absorbs elemental damage and physical damage 150% more effectively. Damage absorption is based on Yun Jin’s maximum HP. This lasts until the duration ends, the shield breaks, or you manually release the button to unleash the skill. When unleashed, Yun Jin deals Geo damage based on the energy absorbed, either resulting in a charge level 1 or charge level 2 attack
Cliffbreaker’s BannerElemental BurstYun Jin deals AoE damage and grants all nearby party members a Flying Cloud Flag Formation.

Flying Cloud Flag Formation
Whenever a party member deals normal attack damage to opponents, bonus damage is inflicted based on Yun Jin’s current defence stat. The effects of this skill clear after a set duration or it consumes all its stacks. It consumes stacks per opponent hit if a normal attack hits multiple enemies at the same time. Each party member has these effects and stacks are counted independently.
Light NourishmentPassive TalentWhen you achieve perfect cooking on Food with Adventure related effects, you have a 12% chance to obtain double the cooked item
True to OneselfPassive TalentWhenever you use Whirling Opener at the moment that Yun Jin is about to get hit by an attack, she will unleash its level 2 hold charged form
No Mere TraditionalistPassive TalentThe normal attack damage bonus granted by Flying Cloud Flag Formation further increases by 2.5%/5%/7.5%/11.5% of Yun Jin’s defence when the party has characters of one/two/three/four elemental types
