Having Cryo characters will break the Abyss Lector's shield and provide the party with Cryo Resonance for increased CRIT Rate. Since two Abyss Lectors will spawn, having Xiao and Ganyu will allow you to deal massive DMG to both of them at the same time.

Diona can support the party with both shields and heal. Zhongli can strengthen your shields even more and apply a debuff to the Abyss Lectors.

Noelle is a powerful DPS that comes with a shield for protection. Having the Geo Traveler on your team will help as a Sub-DPS, but also provide Geo resonance to increase damage. Kaeya can also play the role of the Sub-DPS, but we mainly need his Cryo skills to break the Abyss Lector's shield.

Barbara will heal the party and easily apply a Wet status, helping Kaeya freeze the Abyss Lectors for easier combat.
