Genshin Impact Yae Miko Guide: Build, Weapons and Artifacts

Guide Yae Miko Genshin Impact

Yae Miko is a long-awaited Electro character, both for her design and her spicy character! The High Priestess of Narukami fights with a catalyst and has great offensive potential thanks to her totems, which inflict continuous Electro damage. She works very well with the Raiden Shogun. This duo promises to wreak havoc in the Abyss! But before you can do that, you'll need to give it a good build. We've put together this complete guide to Yae Miko from Genshin Impact to make it easy for you! With our tips and tricks, you'll know which artefacts and weapons to equip her with, as well as which team to play her in.

How to get Yae Miko in Genshin Impact ?

Yae Miko is a 5 star character. You can only summon her when she is highlighted in a Character Event Wish.

The 2.5 update to Genshin Impact marked the arrival of the Narukami priestess in the RPG. You have a small chance to unlock Yae Miko by making wishes on the " Purple Infinity " banner from February 16th to March 8th at 5pm.

Yae Miko Constellations

Yae Miko is perfectly playable without constellations, but if you want to invest in the character we recommend :

  • The C1 ' Yakan Offering ' which allows you to recover 8 extra energy points when Yae's elemental rampage throws tenko lightning.
  • The C2 ' Fox's Mooncall ' increases the attack range and damage of the Sesshou Sakuras.

Her fourth and sixth constellations improve it even more, especially the C6 " Forbidden Art : Daisesshou ". You ignore 60% of enemy defence for Sesshou Sakuras attacks.

How to play Yae Miko in Genshin Impact ?

Yae Miko is a good burst DPS. She is not destined to stay on the battlefield for long.

Her gameplay consists of placing totems with her elemental ability " Yakan Evocation : Sesshou Sakura". You can place up to 3 Sesshou Sakuras that will strike enemies with lightning. By placing all 3, the damage is increased, especially if they are connected to each other. It is recommended that you place them in a triangle to cause maximum damage.

Statistics for Yae Miko's elemental talent in Genshin Impact

The elemental rampage ' Secret Technique: Tenko Incarnation ' first strikes a powerful tenko bolt that strikes enemies to inflict DMG Area Electro. It then destroys all totems to turn them into tenko lightning.

In addition, thanks to the " The Shrine's Sacred Shade" talent, the recharge time of Yae's elemental skill is reset. You can now replace the Sesshou Sakuras.

This ability is devastating, making Yae an excellent DPS burst. However, the skill costs 90 energy points and takes 22 seconds to recharge. Using it often will be complicated. Especially since the elemental attack generates very few energy particles.

What is the best equipment for Yae Miko?

To make a maximum of damage with Yae, increase as much as possible her attack and her rate of blows and critical damage thanks to her equipment. In order to regularly use her energy-intensive elemental rampage, we also recommend raising the energy recharge to at least 150% for a balanced build. To this end, we reveal the best weapons and artefacts to equip on Yae Miko.

The best artefacts for Yae Miko

The best artifact choice for Yae Miko is to combine two pieces of the Thundering Fury set, which grants a 15% electro damage bonus, with two pieces of Shimenawa's Reminiscence or Gladiator's Finale. These sets both grant an 18% bonus to ATK. You can also equip these two sets to gain a larger ATK bonus.

And if you are short of energy recharge, the set Emblem of Severed Fate set is also an option. Two pieces increase the energy recharge and four increase the DMG caused by the elemental rampage to 25% of the total energy recharge.

Statistics to be mounted :

  • Hourglass: ATK%;
  • Cutting: damage bonus Electro ;
  • Crown: critical rate or critical damage.

Secondary statistics :

  • ATK% ;
  • Energy Recharge;
  • Critical rate ;
  • Critical Damage.
  • Basic mastery.

The " Awakened Blessing " talent increases Yae's totem damage by 0.15% for each of his mastery points. While it is worthwhile to increase this statistic, you are advised not to bet everything on it.

The best weapons for Yae Miko

The best weapon for Yae Miko is undoubtedly her signature catalyst: Kagura's Truth(5★). In addition to raising her critical damage, unleashing an elemental ability increases the damage dealt by elemental skills by 12% for 6 seconds. This effect can be cumulative up to 3 times.

  • Wandering Movement(4★): boosts critical damage and when you deploy Yae, a random melody is cast for 10 seconds. This can increaseATK by 60%, DMG elementals by 48% or elemental mastery by 240 points.
  • Solar Pearl (4★): battle pass weapon increases critical rate. Normal attacks boost damage from elemental skills by 20% when hitting their target for 6 seconds.
  • Favonius Code (4★) : a good alternative to improve Yae's energy recharge if you already have good stats forATK and CRIT.
  • Ring of the Hakushin(4★): you can craft this catalyst at the blacksmith's shop. It increases the energy recharge and when the equipped character triggers an Electro-related reaction, heroes whose element is involved in the reaction regain a 10% bonus to their element from DMG for 6 seconds.

Yae Miko's climbing materials in Genshin Impact

In order to raise Yae Miko to level 90 in Genshin Impact, you will need to collect the following resources:

  • 419 Hero's Wit and 2.1 million Moras;
  • 1 Sliver, 9 Fragments, 9 Chunks and 6 Gemstones of Vajrada Amethyst Stones, which you will find mainly on the Electro Hypostasis ;
  • 46 Dragonheir's False Fin to be looted by doing the Bathysmal Vishap Herd Challenge in Enkanomiya;
  • 168 Sea Ganoderma to be picked in Inazuma. Locate them with the interactive map of Teyvat;
  • 18 Old Handguards, 30 Kageuchi Handguards and 36 Famed Handguards to collect from the Nobushi and Kairagi.

In which team should Yae Miko play?

Yae Miko is a selfish character, who does not boost her team and requires a lot of energy. To play her as a DPS burst, you will need a battery such as Fischl or the Shogun Raiden.

Yae works very well in an electrocution team with Kokomi or Barbara for heal and the Hydro element, Raiden or Fischl as a second Electro hero and Kazuha or Sucrose to gather enemies with Anemo. In addition, Sucrose will be able to bring elemental mastery to Yae. You can also replace the Anemo hero with Kujou Sara.

Team Raiden / Yae Miko / Kazuha / Bennett will also be powerful in the Abyss. You then focus on the elemental reactions.

How old is Yae Miko from Genshin Impact ?

Profile of Yae Miko in Genshin Impact

Born on June 27, Yae Miko is said to be 500 years old. High priestess of the Narukami shrine in Inazuma, Yae is a faithful ally of the Raiden Shogun, whom she has known since childhood.

She is also the editorial director of the Yae House, a position she holds with passion and sometimes even a certain sadism. Don't let her graceful appearance fool you, she's actually quite devious!

That's it for this guide to Yae Miko from Genshin Impact. All that's left is for you to test her in the game and especially in the Abyss! If you're hesitating to summon her, it all depends on the characters you already have. Without Fischl or Raiden, you will have trouble recharging her energy. Even if she's not essential, Yae remains a nice addition to a team focused on Electro, especially since her gameplay has the advantage of being simple and fun!

Hazulia Passionate about fantasy and science-fiction, I am constantly exploring many worlds in my head, in my texts and of course in video games! These last few months, it's Genshin Impact that takes up part of my days... But I also enjoy card games, fighting games, management games, manga, series, movies, etc.
