What is the best Genshin Impact Yun Jin build?

Yun Jin is a geo support character that wields a polearm, making her the second polearm character with geo vision. We recommend using her in a team with a pyro character as the main DPS, so that you can take advantage of vaporize.

Which weapon should you use?

As Yun Jin is a fairly new character, our recommendations for the best weapon may change over time. For now, feel free to use either of the weapons mentioned below.

Weapon Effect
Staff of Homa Yun Jin’s HP is increased by 20%, and she gains an attack bonus based on 0.8% of her max HP. When her HP falls below 50%, this attack bonus is increased by an additional 1% of max HP
Favonius Lance Critical hits have a 60% chance to generate a small number of elemental particles. This regenerates six energy for Yun Jin. It can only occur once every 12 seconds

Which artifact set should you use?

Much like her weapon choice, these sets may change over time while we get used to using Yun Jin. For now, we recommend a full set of Husk of Opulent Dreams artifacts. For an easier to find set, feel free to use the Martial Artist set.

Artifact set Effect
Husk of Opulent Dreams Two equipped: increases defence by 30%
Four equipped: Yun Jin gains the curiosity effect in the following conditions:
  • When on the field, she gains one stack after hitting an opponent with a geo attack, this triggers a maximum of once every 0.3 seconds
  • When off the field, Yun Jin gains one stack every three seconds.

Curiosity can stack up to four times, each providing a 6% defence and a 6% geo damage bonus. When six seconds pass without gaining a stack, one stack is lost

Martial Artist Two equipped: increases normal and charged attack damage by 15%
Four equipped: after you use an elemental skill, normal and charged attack damage is increased by 25% for eight seconds
