Icy Quill is Shenhe’s special effect that boosts the Cryo damage of other party members. More specifically, when Normal, Charged, Plunging attacks, Elemental Skills and Elemental bursts deal Cryo damage to enemies, the damage dealt is increased based on Shenhe’s current ATK. When held, the effect will last longer and can be triggered more times.
Her Elemental Burst, Divine Maiden’s Deliverance, unleashes the Talisman Spirit, allowing it to roam free and deal AOE Cryo damage. The spirit also creates a field that decreases the Cryo and Physical resistance of enemies while dealing Cryo Damage to enemies within it.
