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.
Entombed City - Outskirts, Mondstadt

      Zhongli is good - definitely better than when he first came out. Venti is kind of an insane character overall with his crowd control which is why people were pulling so much for him. Zhongli is different since the petrification from his burst only lasts a few seconds. Most people pull him for his shield, so if you are looking for a strong shield or Geo character then you can pull him but it's not really that necessary. It just matters whether you like playing him :)
