Cryo Against Hydro Shields

Cryo is half as effective as dendro but still much more effective than pyro and Electro. So it’s still a great option to use against Hydro Shields. Some players may even prefer cryo because it has the added benefit of freezing the enemy which can make the fight a lot easier.

Electro Against other Elemental Shield

Electro could be useful if you have to break several different elemental shield in Genshin Impact in the same fight. Even though Electro isn’t the heart counter to any of them it can deal with all of them in a reasonable amount of time.
