Genshin Impact 1.5 update beta testing began a few days ago. But due to excessive leaks, the beta testing was halted. Before that, we already have a plethora of new information regarding Genshin Impact’s next major update. Among the many leaked content, we came to know about a few new bosses like the Cryo Hypostasis, Electro Abyss Herald(Abyss Lector) and the Dragon King Azhdaha(previously known as Dahaka) that will get added with Genshin Impact 1.5 update. In this article, we talk about Cryo Hypostasis, items it drops and a possible release date for the new boss.
According to data-mined information on Cryo Hypostasis, the official description reads, “Elemental creatures who protect themselves from incoming attack with their durable shell. Find an opportune moment to land a blow to their elemental core. At critical moments, they will enter a shielded regeneration state, firing frostfruits to attack its foes while restoring its own HP. Use charged attacks to redirect the frostfruits back at the Cryo Hyprostasis to knock it out of its regenerative states swiftly.
Cryo Hypostasis Boss Fight
From the above boss description we learn a few important things about the Cryo Hypostasis boss fight. Similar to the other Hypostasis bosses the Cryo Hypostasis has its own nuanced regeneration period where he attacks with a projectile called frostfruits.
And, to stop the regeneration process players have to redirect the projectile back to the Cryo Hypostasis using charged attacks.
Apart from that, we can assume that the new Cryo Hypostasis boss battle will be somewhat similar to other Hypostasis battles. But since, this time around the boss uses the Cryo element. Players can expect blizzard-like attacks that affect their Sheer cold meter.
Cryo Hypostasis Boss Drop Loot
At the time of writing this article, there is only one drop from the Cryo Hypostasis boss that is confirmed and that is Eula’s special ascension material item called Crystalline Bloom. Apart from that, players can expect the following drops from the new Cryo Hypostasis boss in Genshin Impact.
- Crystalline Bloom
- Shivada Jade Sliver
- Hoarfrost Core
- Shivada Jade Fragment
- Shivada Jade Chunk
- Shivada Jade Gemstone
