Genshin Impact 4.1: Diona Talents, Constellations and Passives
Diona is a 4-star Cryo healer and shielder in Genshin Impact and she is returning as a rerun 4-star in patch 4.1. 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 4.1 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. Diona will be available alongside Neuvillette and Hu Tao next patch (4.1) so you might get a copy or two of Diona if you are going for either of the featured 5-stars.
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.
