Cryo Hypostasis
Required Resin 40
Adventurer Handbook Description
Code name: Daleth. A high-purity Cryo entity. Research suggests that there are subtle differences between elemental hypostases and other elemental life forms in terms of their physical composition. Perhaps these differences can account for their high level of homeostasis and their almost mechanical movements.

How to Beat Cryo Hypostasis

Wait for an Opening to Attack

Genshin Impact - Cryo Hypostasis Core
The Cryo Hypostasis' weakness is its core, which is vulnerable after every attack. Use Pyro and Electro skills to deal massive damage quickly.

Hit the Frostfruits to Break the Cryo Shield

Genshin - Cryo Hypostasis Frostfruits
To beat the Hypostasis for good, you need to attack the Frostfruits it drops using charged attacks. This will propel the Frostfruits forward and damage the Cryo Shield.

After breaking the Cryo Shield, you can now deal damage and finish it off. You can also use Charged Bow Attacks on the Frostfruits to keep yourself at a safe distance while breaking the shield.

Use Heat Sources to Prevent Sheer Cold

Genshin - Heat Generating Node
Apart from fighting the Cryo Hypostass, you also need to manage Sheer Cold throughout the fight. Make sure you get near heat sources during the fight, as damage from the cold combined with the Hypostasis attacks can knock out your party.

Aloy, if you were lucky enough to get her, also takes the Crystalline Bloom boss drop. Came here looking for tips and noticed she wasn't on the list. 😊
