The best Genshin Impact Yoimiya build

Yoimiya excels in a main DPS role thanks to her powerful elemental burst that deals AoE pyro damage. We recommend you use her in a team with Genshin Impact’s Sayu as support and Genshin Impact’s Mona as sub DPS.

Which weapon should you use?

The best weapon for Yoimiya is the Thundering Pulse bow. If you haven’t managed to get your hands on it just yet, Rust is a suitable replacement weapon.

Weapon Effect
Thundering Pulse Increases attack by 20% and grants a thunder emblem. At stacks one, two, and three, normal attack damage is further increased by 12, 24, and 40% respectively. Each stack has an individual duration and is achieved by performing:
• Normal attacks with elemental damage (duration five seconds)
• Casting an elemental skill (duration ten seconds)
• Having less than 100% energy (disappears at full energy)
Rust Increases normal attack damage by 40% but decreases aimed shot damage by 10%

Which artifact set should you use?

A full set of Shimenawa’s Reminiscence or a full set of Crimson Witch of Flames works great with Yoimiya.

Artifact set Effect
Shimenawa’s Reminiscence Two equipped: increases attack by 18%
Four equipped: when you cast an elemental skill, if Yoimiya has 15 or more energy, they lose 15 energy and normal, charged, and plunging attack damage is increased by 50% for ten seconds
Crimson Witch of Flames Two equipped: increases pyro damage by 15%
Four equipped: increases overloaded and burning damage by 40%. Increases vaporize and melt damage by 15%. When you use an elemental skill the two-piece set effects are increased by 50% for ten seconds

What are Yoimiya’s skills?

Active skills:

Skill Effect
Firework Flare-Up Fire five consecutive shots with your bow
Firework Flare-Up (charged) Charge up to perform a stronger, more precise shot. The effect changes the longer you charge:
One charge: the arrow deals pyro damage
Two charges: generate three kindling arrows that hit nearby enemies and deal pyro damage
Niwabi Fire-Dance Wave a sparkler to create a ring of saltpeter. During this time, any arrow you fire will become a blazing arrow, and it will dish out increased pyro damage. However, your charged normal attack will not produce kindling arrows
Ryuukin Saxifrage You launch rockets toward the enemy and deal AoE pyro damage. All normal, charged, and plunging attacks, as well as elemental bursts and skills dealt by party members other than Yoimiya, will mark the enemy with an Aurous Blaze. The blaze triggers an explosion that causes AoE pyro damage

Passive skills:

Skill Effect
Tricks of the Trouble-Maker During Niwabi Fire-Dance, shots from Yoimiya’s normal attack increase her pyro damage by 2% on hit. This lasts for three seconds and can have a maximum of ten stacks
Summer-Night’s Dawn Using Ryuukin Saxifrage causes nearby party members to gain a 10% attack increase for 15 seconds. Additionally, a further attack bonus is added based on the number of ‘Tricks of the Trouble-Maker’ stacks when using Ryuukin Saxifrage. Each stack increases this bonus by 1%
Blazing Match When Yoimiya crafts decorations, ornaments, or landscape-type furnishings, she has a 100% chance to refund a portion of the materials
