Yoimiya's gameplay in Genshin Impact

Yoimiya is mainly intended to be played as a main DPS. Although she fights with a bow, her gameplay is quite simple. You don't need to aim to hit and can easily hit flying or distant enemies. You'll do more damage by focusing on her normal attacks rather than her charged attacks.

But before attacking with Yoimiya, always cast his elemental skill Niwabi Fire-Dance. This infuses the Pyro element into his arrows for 10 seconds. You will then generate more damage with normal attacks in addition to applying the Pyro element.

While the skill is active, thanks to the Tricks of the Trouble-Maker passive, Yoimiya's normal attacks increase his Pyro damage bonus by 2%. The effect lasts for 3 seconds and can be accumulated up to 10 times.

Once the Pyro enchantment is complete, cast Yoimiya's elemental rampage: Ryuukin Saxifrage. The fighter fires a firework that causes area Pyro damage. It marks an enemy with a Aurous Blaze for 10 seconds. From then on, all the attacks and skills of your team members (except Yoimiya) generate an explosion when they hit a marked enemy. If the enemy is defeated before the end of the effect, the mark is transferred for the remaining time.

The passive Summer Night's Dawn then increases the ATK of your entire team (except Yoimiya) by 10% for 15 seconds. Each accumulated Tricks of the Trouble-Maker increases the ATK bonus by 1%.

For optimal rotation, start by casting Yoimiya's elemental attack, chain normal attacks together, then cast the elemental rampage. Then switch to another character to take advantage of the bonus, perform elemental reactions, etc.

What is the best equipment for Yoimiya?

The bulk of Yoimiya's DPS is based on his normal attacks and Pyro damage. For an optimal build, boost his ATK, his damage and critical strike rate as well as his Pyro damage. Also boost his normal attacks with the effects of his equipment. We've listed the best artifacts and weapons to equip on Yoimiya in this guide at Genshin Impact.

The 4-piece Shimenawa's Reminiscence set is one of the best artifact choices for Yoimiya. With 4 pieces of equipment, you increase his ATK by 18%. And with 4, when you cast an elemental skill, if Yoimiya has at least 15 energy points, they are sacrificed. His normal, charged and plunging attack damage is boosted by 50% for 10 seconds.

While Yoimiya will do more damage, she will also take longer to cast her elemental rampage. For a more flexible build, the trick is to use 2 pieces of Shimenawa's Reminiscence or another set that increases ATK and 2 pieces of equipment from the Crimson Witch of Flames set to get a 15% Pyro damage bonus.
