Healers have been one of the least recommended characters for quite some time. However, with the previous update corrosion was added, which damages a character’s HP. This status effect also ignores shield which added a big challenge to players who heavily rely on Zhongli as their go-to utility support.
Due to some enemies applying a corrosion debuff, healer-type characters have become one of the staple recommendations in the meta, especially those who have both shield and healing like Diona.
It will be interesting to see how the upcoming Genshin Impact character Baizhu shall perform in the meta once it officially arrives in the game.
