The Cryo Regisvine is one of Genshin Impact’s Normal Bosses. It’s the only Boss that drops the Hoarfrost Core Character Ascension Material. So if you have Cryo characters that need Ascending, you might need a Hoarfrost Core or two for them. Here’s everything you need to know about the Cryo Regisvine’s attacks, weaknesses and how to beat it.
Cryo Regisvine’s Attacks
The Cryo Regisvine has two phases: the roots phase, and the corolla phase. These refer to where you need to attack in order to get it into its vulnerable state. The Cryo Regisvine fight will begin in the root phase, and swap between the corolla phase and root phase with every subsequent vulnerability period.
Ice Beams: Flings two ice beams at the player, dealing Cryo DMG.
Homing Icicles: Fires barrages of icicles that home toward the player, dealing Cryo DMG on hit.
Faceplant: Slams itself into the ground, dealing AoE Cryo DMG and causing three ice trails to spike from the ground, which deal AoE Cryo DMG.

How to Defeat the Cryo Regisvine
All Elements except Cryo and Hydro can deal DMG to the weak spot, however, Pyro is most effective. Therefore, you’ll definitely want to bring your strongest Pyro characters to this fight; Diluc, Hu Tao, Klee, Yoimiya, Xiangling and Yanfei are all great choices, and bringing Bennett along for the buffs is a good idea, too. To beat it, use Pyro attacks on the weak point until the Cryo Regisvine is downed, then go all in with your strongest attacks!
