Take Zhongli or Noelle for their shields. This will take advantage of the Ley Line bonus, which gives you an extra 40% shield as well as create a shockwave when you pick up an Elemental Shard from a Geo Elemental Reaction. After that, take two Cryo characters (Ganyu, and Diona are a nice combination) to get the bonus Cryo damage from Ganyu’s charged attacks plus an extra shield from Diona. Finally, take either Albedo or Ningguang to give you more opportunities to create Elemental Shards.
