Genshin Impact Yae Miko Talents (Skills)

Because most of her combat revolves around her Sakura Fox Turrets, players should level up her Talents in this order:

Elemental Skill – Yakan Evocation: Sesshou Sakura
Elemental Burst – Great Secret Art: Tenko Kenshin
Normal Attack – Spiritfox Sin-Eater

Spiritfox Sin-Eater

Spiritfox Sin-Eater

Normal Attack:

Summons forth kitsune spirits, initiating a maximum of 3 attacks that deal Electro DMG.

Plunges towards the ground from mid-air, damaging all opponents in her path with thunderous might. Deals AoE Electro DMG upon impact with the ground.

Yakan Evocation: Sesshou Sakura

Yakan Evocation: Sesshou Sakura

Elemental Skill

To Yae, such dull tasks as can be accomplished by driving spirits out need not be done personally. Moves swiftly, leaving a Sesshou Sakura behind.

Sesshou Sakura:

• Will periodically strike one nearby opponent with lightning, dealing Electro DMG.

• When there are other Sesshou Sakura nearby, their level will increase, thus boosting the DMG dealt by said attacks.

A maximum of 3 Sesshou Sakura can exist simultaneously. The initial highest level each Sakura can reach is 3.

Great Secret Art: Tenko Kenshin

Great Secret Art: Tenko Kenshin

Elemental Burst

The legend of “kitsunetsuki,” or the manifestation of a kitsune’s might, is one of Inazuma’s folktales. Among them, that of the Sky Kitsune is considered special, falling upon the foes of the Grand Narukami Shrine in the form of lightning that plummets down, dealing AoE Electro DMG.

When she uses this skill, Yae Miko will unseal nearby Sesshou Sakura nearby, destroying their outer forms and transforming them into Sky Kitsune Thunderbolts that descends from the skies, dealing AoE Electro DMG. Each Sesshou Sakura destroyed this way will create one descending thunderbolt.

Genshin Impact Yae Miko Constellations from C0 to C6

Although Yae Miko is already an S-tier Sub-DPS character, she also has one of the highest Burst costs in the game. So while the Shrine Maiden is already great at C0, her first Constellation cuts her energy cost from 90 to 58.

Her best Constellations to look out for are C1 and C2.

Best Genshin Impact Yae Miko Team Combo

Yae Miko

Raiden Shogun



– As the Main DPS, Yae Miko will constantly be on the field, dealing Electro damage through her attacks. If needed to swap, you can leave her Totems on the field before switching out.

– Raiden Shogun will work well with Yae Miko to continously dish out Electro damage. She can also act a battery with Yae and her Burst provides not only high damage, but will also give Energy for the whole team

– Kokomi’s one of the best Hydro enabler and will work well with Yae Miko. Her on-field Skill will allow either Yae Miko or Raiden Shogun to continously proc Electro-charged

– Sucrose offers additional Elemental Mastery to the team with her Skill. She can also swirl Hydro in the event Kokomi’s skill is cooldown and her Burst can also trap smaller mobs within it.

Best Genshin Impact Yae Miko Builds

For most team builds, Yae Miko will not be on the field for long as her Fox Turrets will be dishing out most of the damage. Players should open up each battle by using her Elemental Skill three times and then using her Elemental Burst for massive damage. This will then reset her Sesshou Sakura, allowing you to use her Elemental Skill again three more times.

After completing the devastating combo, the Electro Catalyst user can be swapped out for another character while her Fox Turrets continue to do damage on the field.

Best Weapons for Yae Miko in Genshin Impact

Yae Miko has a wide range of weapon options here, but due to her unique Fox Turrets consistently dishing out DMG, her focus should be on high CRIT DMG and ATK weapons.

Kagura's Verity

Increases Energy Recharge by 24% for 10s after using an Elemental Skill.

Best Free-to-Play/Below AR45 Weapons for Yae Miko

None of the below Adventure Rank 45 weapons offer a massive boost in CRIT DMG, so players in this range will want to build those stats in their Artifacts. Instead, the following weapons will focus on buffing Yae Miko through her Elemental Mastery or fixing her Energy Recharge needs.

Those running a Water and Electro team can leverage Hakushin Ring’s skill which gives a boost to each team member’s ATK after creating an elemental reaction. The Emerald Orb is another great choice for this team setup as it boosts the Shrine Maiden’s Fox Turrets damage by increasing her EM by 20.

Hakushin Ring

Hakushin Ring

After the character equipped with this weapon triggers an Electro elemental reaction, nearby party members of an Elemental Type involved in the elemental reaction receive a 10% Elemental DMG Bonus for their element, lasting 6s. Elemental Bonuses gained in this way cannot be stacked.

Emerald Orb

Emerald Orb

Upon causing a Vaporize, Electro-Charged, Frozen, or a Hydro-infused Swirl reaction, increases ATK by 20% for 12s.

Mappa Mare

Mappa Mare

Triggering an Elemental reaction grants an 8% Elemental DMG Bonus for 10s. Max 2 stacks.

Best Genshin Impact Yae Miko Artifacts

Yae Miko has various Artifact sets she can use as players can build her up around either her Elemental Skill or her Elemental Burst. Those looking for hard-hitting damage should use the Thundering Fury set to buff her Electro DMG, and then pair it off with either 2 Gladiator’s Finale or Shimenawa’s Reminiscence for boosted ATK.

Because the Inazuma character’s Sakura Fox Turrets greatly benefit from Elemental Mastery, another great set is pairing Thundering Fury and Wanderer’s Troupe. Players who do not have a second Electro character like Raiden Shogun to act as a battery can use a 4 piece Emblem of Severed Fate set to boost both Yae Miko’s Energy Recharge and Burst.

The main stats to look out for are ATK / Elemental Mastery / CRIT DMG, although you will need Energy Recharge if you are not playing with a team that has a battery such as Fischl or Raiden Shogun.

Thundering Fury​

  • 2-piece effect: Electro DMG Bonus +15%.

  • 4-piece effect: Increases damage caused by Overloaded, Electro-Charged and Superconduct by 40%. Triggering such effects decreases Elemental Skill CD by 1s. Can only occur once every 0.8s.

Best Free-to-Play/Below AR45 Artifacts for Yae Miko

Players still early into the game or below Adventure Rank 45 can still pack a punch with Yae Miko. These Artifact sets are also perfect for free-to-play users who are looking to get their most out of the Electro Catalyst user for little cost.

A great build buff the 5-Star character’s Sakura Fox Turrets is pairing the Gambler and Instructor Artifact set. This will give her Elemental Skill a whopping 20% boost as well as substantial damage buff with the 80 Elemental Mastery buff.

For a support build, a 4-piece The Exile will not only give the Shrine Maiden a 20% boost to her Energy Recharge, but her Burst will also generate particles to energize the rest of your teammates.

The Exile
