Leveling up the unit and upgrading her talents is not going to be enough. You also need to give her the right artifacts and weapon. The following is the build that we recommend for Shenhe is Genshin Impact.
Calamity Queller is the best weapon that we can recommend for Shenhe. It has attack has the bonus stat and it increases elemental damage bonus depending on the refinement level. Using your elemental skill increases your attack.
If you are a low spender then we can recommend getting Deathmatch which can be obtained as part of the battle pass. It has crit rate as the bonus stat which is ideal for dealing consistently high damage. If there are 2 or more enemies near you then attack and defense are increased by 16%. If there is a single enemy near you then you get a 24% attack bonus.
Other 4-star weapons that we can recommend include The Catch, Favonius Lance and Lilith Spear.
We recommend going with 2-pieces of Gladiator’s Finale and 2-pieces of Blizzard Strayer. This is going to increase your attack by 18% and cryo damage by 15%. If you want to do more damage and go with a freeze composition then you can go with 4-pieces of the Blizzard Strayer set. We recommend getting cryo damage on the cup and crit rate or crit damage on the hat.
