Genshin Impact welcomed the new year 2022 on a high note with Version 2.4, led by new characters Shenhe and Yun Jin. ‘Fleeting Colors in Flight’ sets off Travelers for awesome content, including new events, a new location to explore, plus new enemies to battle. Fan-favorite Rerun Banners of Xiao, Zhongli, and Ganyu are also making a big comeback.
Genshin Impact 2.4 New Characters: Shenhe and Yun Jin
Two polearm-wielding characters from Liyue make their anticipated debut in the game. ‘Lonesome Transcendence’ Shenhe is a 5-Star Cryo character who can buff other Cryo allies. Teammates are provided with Icy Quill effects that increase their damage. Shenhe’s Elemental Burst in Divine Maiden’s Deliverance unleashes a clone with the power of the Talisman Spirit that deals AoE Cryo damage.

The other newcomer is ‘Stage Lucida’ Yun Jin. This 4-Star Geo character, a famous opera singer, has great potential as a solid support character with her Elemental Skill that forms a shield. Yun Jin’s Elemental Burst is called Cliffbreaker’s Banner. It dishes a one-time AoE Geo Damage while granting all nearby allies a “Flying Cloud Flag Formation” that increases the damage of normal attacks.
