Genshin Impact 3.5: Diona Talents, Constellations and Passives

Updated On: 
Diona is a Cryo healer and shielder in Genshin Impact who can also provide Elemental Mastery buffs at max constellations.
She is a decent flex option in Freeze teams and offers decent defensive utility.
Pulling for her is not recommended if you do not want the featured 5-stars on the banner.

Diona is a 4-star Cryo healer and shielder in Genshin Impact and she is currently featured on patch 3.5’s Ayaka and Shenhe banners. If you do not have access to Zhongli, or simply want a Cryo support for a Freeze team, she can be a decent pick. She sees play in budget Freeze teams with Mona, an Anemo support and a Cryo DPS. If you are considering building Diona, here’s what you need to know about her Talents, Constellations and Passives.

Genshin Impact 3.5 Diona: Should you pull for her? 

Diona is not a must-have character and there are good free-to-play healing options like Barbara who everyone has access to, or Bennett who you can purchase from the Starglitter shop every six months. If you need a Cryo support for Eula or a Freeze team, she can be a good pick. 

Unlike 5-stars, there is no guarantee that you will be able to snag a 4-star of your choice. There are instances of people spending over a hundred wishes and not getting the 4-star that they need so you should never pull for a low rarity unit unless you are okay with getting the featured 5-star or using up your pity.

Genshin Impact 3.5 Diona: Talents

Elemental Skill - Icy Paws: Fires an Icy Paw that deals Cryo DMG to opponents and forms a shield on hit.

The shield's DMG Absorption scales based on Diona's Max HP, and its duration scales off the number of Icy Paws that hit their target.


  • Rapidly fires off 2 Icy Paws.


  • Dashes back quickly before firing 5 Icy Paws.

The shield created by a Hold attack will gain a 75% DMG Absorption Bonus.

The shield has a 250% Cryo DMG Absorption Bonus, and will cause your active character to become affected by Cryo at the point of formation for a short duration.

Elemental Burst - Signature Mix: Tosses out a special cold brew that deals AoE Cryo DMG and creates a Drunken Mist in an AoE.

Drunken Mist

  • Deals continuous Cryo DMG to opponents within the AoE.

  • Continuously regenerates the HP of characters within the AoE.

Additionally, when paws hit their targets, creates a shield for other nearby characters on the field with 50% of the Icy Paws shield's DMG Absorption for 5s.

C3 - A-Another Round?: Increases the Level of Signature Mix by 3 (Max Level 15).

C4 - Wine Industry Slayer: Within the radius of Signature Mix, Diona's charge time for aimed shots is reduced by 60%

C5 - Double Shot, on the Rocks: Increases the Level of Icy Paws by 3 (Max Level 15).

C6 - Cat’s Tail Closing Time: Characters within Signature Mix's radius will gain the following effects based on their HP amounts:

  • Increases Incoming Healing Bonus by 30% when HP falls below or is equal to 50%.

  • Elemental Mastery increased by 200 when HP is above 50%.
