Genshin Impact Yae Miko – release date, banner, and skills

What does the fox say? Find out all about Genshin Impact Yae Miko's release date, ascension materials, banner, skills, and more with this handy guide

Genshin Impact's Yae Miko with her hand to her face

Way back in the Genshin Impact 1.5 livestream, we got our first glimpse of a mysterious, pink-haired fox lady, and fans everywhere went wild. Later revealed as Yae Miko, this stunning kitsune has become a staple on many players’ whislists, and an important figure in the Traveler’s ever-turbulent journey.

As the Guuji of the Grand Narukami Shrine and owner of Yae Publishing House, Genshin Impact’s Yae Miko‘s elegant and beautiful appearance belies an intelligent and cunning personality fitting of her kitsune heritage. While she has nestled herself deeply into the lore of Teyvat and Inazuma, she is yet to become a playable character. But it would seem the Genshin Impact Yae Miko release date is close on the horizon – and thanks to some intriguing leaks, we’ve got a good idea of what we can expect.

If you want to keep up to date with upcoming characters, check out our Genshin Impact next banner and Genshin Impact update guides. We’ve also got a handy list of Genshin Impact codes to keep your wallet lined with freemos, and a Genshin Impact event guide so you can keep track of what’s happening in Teyvat.

When is the Genshin Impact Yae Miko release date?

At the moment, we’re unsure when you can play as Yae Miko. However, Miyoho has revealed she will be available not long after the debut of Genshin Impact Inazuma – which has been knocking around for a while now.

Genshin Impact leaks suggest that she should be available in the 2.5 update, but, as with all leaks, this is subject to change. Keep an eye on our Genshin Impact banner guide, as we’ll update it as soon as we know when the Yae Miko banner is coming.

The best Genshin Impact Yae Miko build

While we’re unsure of Yae Miko’s role, we know that she wields an electro vision and a catalyst. So far, her leaked abilities suggest she will likely be a strong, burst DPS with plenty of mobility and elemental crits.

Genshin Impact Yae Miko’s best weapon

Leaks have hinted that there will be a signature weapon released alongside Yae Miko called Shinra’s Truth, with a focus on crit damage. Of course, this has not been confirmed by Mihoyo, and may change by the time the update rolls around.

Based on what we know so far, we predict that the Skyward Atlas and Lost Prayer to Sacred Winds catalysts will be suitable replacements if you can’t get your hands on Shinra’s Truth. We’ll update this guide when we know more.
